Verified Patient Reviews
From the soothing classical music playing in the background to the welcoming assistant to Dr. Lipschutz himself, these all contributed to a very positive and angst-free visit. After having had very different experiences with a different dentist for the past couple of years, Dr. Lipschutz and his team's friendly and professional attitudes really helped me feel welcome and a bit like opening a bottle of champagne afterwards (not because I had no dental issues, rather because there exists dentists like Dr. Lipschutz).
He really cares about the health of my teeth. He is by far the best dentist I have ever had. Never tries to upsell me, always explains why I need or should have a procedure and shows me the x rays. I recommend him to all my friends.
This dentist is the most amazing person in the world. I saw him on a Saturday as an emergency with excruciating tooth pain, having seen another dentist the day before who was setting me up for an emergency root canal 3 days later. I could not take the pain any more and went to see Dr Lipschultz the following day. I arrived in a flood of tears with pain uncontrollable with max dose Percocet. He spent 2 hours with me, beside manner was unbelievably fantastic (and I usually hate the dentist ++++). He diagnosed me with a pretty severe gum problem that wasn't a tooth issue at all. He did a pretty radical clean of some deep pockets of inflammation in the gum, then sealed the pockets with tiny microspheres of antibiotics that release into the tissue over 30 days. . He numbed me up so well that the procedure itself was painless. My pain went from a 10/10 to a 1/10 in less than 1 hour and I slept through the night without any pain and this morning I am painfree. Dr Lipschultz saved me a root canal, that not only did I not need but also would not have resolved my problem or my pain. I have a new found respect for dentists and this man is my hero !!!!!!! I am SO grateful for what he did for me, and how kind a caring he was. He even texted me at 10pm the same night I saw him to check I was doing ok. I am so fortunate I found Dr Lipschultz on zocdoc and he saved my sanity, my pain and my tooth !!!! I would also like to say a big thank you to the male receptionist, victor who was so calming, caring and sympathetic as I sat in the waiting room crying in uncontrollable pain and he calmly reassured me Dr Lipschutz would take good care of me and make me better. He was right!!!! I am a doctor myself and cannot speak more highly of the fantastic care I got from Dr Lipschutz and his team.
Always very kind and patient and personable. The office staff couldn't be more friendly, patient, helpful.
I love going to the dentist now. I came to replace an old dental filling, and was a little anxious at first (all the needles, drills, and whatnot). However, Dr. Lipschutz quickly put me at ease. Very personable, professional, calm, and gentle. Didn't feel a thing. Highly recommend.

Great visit, once again! I've been going to Dr. L for the past 10 years, and he and his well-trained staff never seize to amaze me! I highly recommend Dr. L!
I would never want another dentist; he is excellent, very skilled, personable, never any pain he will always ask you, tell you what he is going to do. Victor the receptionist is so friendly, patient, all his office staff are top notch. Nice, comfortable office, convenient, Saturday appts available.
I booked this appointment in a panic because my crown came loose on Friday evening and Dr Lipschutz came to my rescue in every imaginable way. I was able to book an appointment in the usual dental-no-mans land of Saturday morning and he was so comprehensive and kind. He not only fixed the immediate problem but took the time to find the underlying problem and thoroughly explain it to me in an approachable way.
This dentist save my life and weekend visit in NYC. Saw me on a Saturday with a fractured tooth and fixed me up well enough til I made it home. He is competent, professional, & gentle. He also appears to care, does great technical work at a fair market cost! Thank you Dr Lipschutz.
Great visit. I always freak out when I get fillings, and he helped me chill out and not feel queasy.
100% professional, friendly and efficient.
Dr. Lipshutz is great!! Very knowledgeable and great bedside manner! The staff is all very friendly too! :-)
Very thorough, did a complete consultation and helped me prioritize next steps for my cavities and root canal. Also a very friendly guy with a helpful staff. Would definitely recommend.
I have been to many dentists in New York and Dr. Lipschutz is the best. He really cares about his patient's health and does a very thorough job. His staff are friendly and very helpful.

Dr Lipschutz is excellent. I highly recommend him.
I really like the Dr Lipschutz's holistic approach. Thank you!
Dr. Lipschutz and his friendly team stayed late on a Friday night to accommodate my needs, as I had an untoward dental emergency. I have been a patient of his for 9 years, and I know I will always be taken care of in my time of need. Additionally, he is very detail oriented and does excellent work.
I have never experienced such a wonderful dental consultation. Dr. Lipschutz knows everything soon after he checked x-ray photo. Highly recommended!
I appreciated Dr. Lipschutz taking the time to explain the dental treatment plan for my immediate problem. He was very caring and reassuring.
Involved me in the process and explained things in detail.
