Extremely good doctor! Nice quality. He listening to you all the times. Not crazy expensive. Much cheaper than my former Dentist. Filling with my former Dentist I was charged about 65 using my insurance. With this doctor is just 15 andthe quality is way much much better than the Doctor Golden in the Bronx (Williamsbridge Dental Office in the Bronx - the attendants are great there but the doctor is terrible). Here the office is small, cozy but the Doctor is extremely efficient and competent I really recommend Dr Lucente as a Dentist.

I've been to Dr. Lucente's office three times. The first time for a cleaning and check-up. That visit was good. I especially liked his staff. They were all friendly, and one gave me the most thorough flossing session of my life.They identified a cavity and told me that I needed to come back for a filling. The second visit, receiving the filling was quite bad. I was told they would be two fillings would be small (which I've had a number of in the past), but they were the most painful fillings I've had done. The real problem has been since the visit -- I had no pain in that tooth before the filling (I wasn't even aware of the cavity), but since the filling I feel extreme sensitivity in that tooth every time I bite down on something hard, like an almond or cashew. I visited a third time to let Dr. Lucente know about the pain, and after an X-ray he determined nothing was technically wrong with the filling, and the sensitivity should subside over time. It's been about a year, and while the sensitivity is less than it was, it's still present. My experience for the cleaning and consultation was good, but I would not recommend Dr. Lucente for any fillings, and I have since found a new dentist.

Got a filling, that as right after I left, flaked off non-stop in my mouth. I kept having to spit out little bits of toxic filling. Two days later, the filling popped out! I would not go back.

I really appreciated how responsive the hygienist was to my needs. She recalled my sensitivity to pressure and cold, and problem solved in order to still fulfill the requirements of a proper cleaning, without the pain. I was really so pleased.

I am always nervous about finding a new dentist but I lucked out! I went here for a routine cleaning/x-rays and then a follow up cavity filling. The receptionist was very friendly and the wait time was only a few minutes.The cleaning was great...the hygenist was very friendly and informative about what she was doing and answered all my many questions! The Dr. (Lucente) was also very friendly and well spoken/gentile. I definitely recommend this practice!
