Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Rafailov was so friendly with a sense of humor. He gives his time to explain in details what I need to know which I haven’t had an experience from any of my dentist in the past. I really do like his professionalism. His staff , esp Ina was very helpful and friendly as well.
After years of having less than great experiences with other local dentists and their staff I have finally found my dental care home. This is my second time using this practice and both times I was treated with respect by the whole team, and I really appreciate how they take the time to go over what you may need and the options for the treatment plan. Dr. Rafailov is a very knowledgeable and skilled professional with excellent bedside manner. I highly recommend him and this dental practice.
My visit was excellent, considering my fear of the Dentist. Dr. Salmon takes the fear away. Very professional, very courteous; my favorite Dentist ever.
Invisalign patient. I was lost at how other dentist quoted me. Dr. Rafailov made sure this process would go smooth. 8 months later, my teeth are perfect. No Long wait Teeth cleaning does not hurt at all. Up to date equipment Dr. Holds his profession with the highest professionalism that I’ve ever experienced. 1000% pay him a visit.
As always, my visit was quite pleasant. The staff is professional and efficient, at the same time, very warm and cordial.
Everything went very smoothly on my visit. Staff and doctor were friendly. My little guy was told to have teeth extractions as his permanent teeth were growing in but baby teeth not loose. Went to Dr Rafailov for a second opinion/referral to oral surgeon. He didn't even suggest extractions asap as previously told to us. What was even better was that they do it in the office if necessary because an oral surgeon was not necessary for this situation. He gave us a tip on how to get the baby tooth to get loose. Hopefully it will work to avoid the extractions. We'll see what happens in a month!
Very nice and honest doctor whatever i have seen .. clean stuff! Good service! I would highly reccomend to everyone !
Warm and personable, offered instruction as well as treatments. Office staff very professional. Wait was a bit long but it appeared earlier patient has some complications.
Dr Rafailov is a very pleasant man. He is very fast, something you want in a dentist. Granted, I don't have real dental issues but I felt very comfortable with him and am glad I found him since my previous dentist passed away :(
He was so friendly and the workers were professional, assertive and friendly as well. It was a great experience. I normally don't like the dentist and I bragged about how great the visit was afterwards. I would highly recommend this place. The office is beautiful, organized and clean.
Everything about the entire staff is first class!!
I've never felt more comfortable in a dentist office. From the receptionist to the dental assistant and the dentist himself, everyone was friendly and a good sense of humor. I would recommend this dentist and have already recommends yo friends and family.
Dr. Rafailov was the most professional DDS that I have ever been treated by (I am 64 y.o.). He put me completely at ease with his level of professionalism and competency. I highly recommend him.
Very rude and only cares about money! Does not listen to patient and is patronizing. Not what I expect from a professional.
Dr. Rafailov is a kind and caring dentist. Dr. Rafailov is very professional and knows his profession inside and out. I recommend him for all your dental needs.
Excellent follow up and service, so fast
Dr. Salamon is the best!!!!
great bedside manner
Very nice medical staff. Not to long wate.
Honestly, when you go to your dentist, you don't want to hear the doctor say "Looks like you're screwed." It was a bittersweet moment. I laughed at my situation but his approach to it was completely unprofessional. Seems like a nice guy though, just has to improve his bedside manner regardless of what kind of insurance the patient has.
Very nice and understanding.. staff are wonderful
It was fun and that is s strange term to address a visit to the dentist. The staff very professional and dr Salomón has a very good sense of humor. The facilities spotless I mean the place and staff were so great I'm looking forward to my next visit ...that's weird
Great experience definitely going back...
Like always staff is friendly environment very clean and Dr.Salamon knows what he's doing besides he's very funny.
I had a first time appointment for my 4 1/2 year old and myself. The staff and doctor was very welcoming, they made me feel very comfortable. The office waiting room was very clean and warm. The dental rooms are by far the best and very comfortable that I've ever visited. ???? I think i found my families new dentist, my fiance scheduled an appointment for the next 2 weeks. Thank you Dr. Salamon and Staff.
Great dr.! Very nice good personality ( I say that because I hate going to dr's that have no sense of humor and your uncomfortable) he explains everything and you feel comfortable which is very important to me anyways , Staff is very nice and very clean office! I def would highly recommend you use this dentist!
I had a great visit. Dr. Salamon is the best from his work and conversation. Makes going to the dentist a breeze.
The wait was sooooo long ... The suction hose for the mouth was spraying water all over my face.. I hope they do something about this.
I've had dentist in the past, but none like him! Dina, that is usually at the front desk is an absolutely sweetheart. All the Dental assistants, so far so good! No complaints what so ever. Highly recommend him this dental office!
Highly recommend it
This man was excellent in all regards !!! arealprofessional
The best dentist in New York.
Excellent DDS. My 8 year old had to have two extractions and the process went as good as I would hope - I highly recommend this practice.
Friendly and honest
He is absolutely the best dentist I have ever had, I always go and leave with a smile. He has helped me in the first stages in restoring my smile. I now smile with confidence. Thank you!
This dentist was terrible. The girls on the front desk were very nice. I booked an appointment at 3 o clock, arrived at 2:50 there was just one person ahead of me meanwhile I was waiting for 3 hours to be seen. Every time I asked the girl in the front desk all she said was "he's almost done". They finally called my name at 6:50 for what? Just to bring me in to the office and tell me to come back next time.... Seriously!!! Remind you I was going in for a root canal and filling on 2 teeth. I was very disappointed. The only reason I came to this dentist was because I was in severe pain. After that I decided to give them a second chance & went in to get the root canal over with. Could you believe I had to wait again for an hour!!! There was no one there only me. We'll eventually I got called. Let me tell you this dentist is the worse. I have never met a dentist so unprofessional and rude. Once I walked in all said was why are you here for? I said a root canal. He said a root canal with an attitude telling me to hurry up or go home... Is that a way to talk to your patients? After that he just pulled out a needle and said hurry up and open your mouth. I said aren't you gonna put the numbing gel & he said no hurry up and lets get this over with.. What happened to making your patient feeling comfortable and caring for their needs? He's attitude is disgusting & he is very unprofessional. Don't know how he's even a dentist. If you don't like ur job then quit. & I did was I got my bag and just left. WOULD NOT RECCOMEND. THE WORST DENTIST EVER. If I could I would give him 0 stars.
Love this place very professional, place very clean the doctor was amazing I recommend this place 100%
The visit was great he tried to make me comfortable as possible great dentist
The wait I could not control. Things happen. But as a first time customer I felt it would have been professional to let me know the wait status. Over one hour is extreme. I hated the fact the doctor touched my mouth without gloves. Very gross!! He seemed in a rush and over booked. Payment talk was unprofessional. He said "I don't care who pays for it you , Obama" why would you say that. Do you not care about your customers pocket. The greatest Complement Is a referral which he will never get. ... He claimed the insurance paid nothing meanwhile my carrier, guardian, pays more than half of what I needed. I just thought he was rude. The receptionist was unprofessional. Only the woman that took my X-rays was nice and professional. I have a bump on my gum and he didn't even suggest a Med for it. When I asked for a cleaning he said he was too busy to do it. So I waited over an hour to be told things I already know. So annoyed.
Great office and Staff, not being a big fan of dentist I would recommend you go here
Dr. Salmon is the perfect dentist. Is very nice, funny & both caring + carefree all at the same time. His office staff & space are friendly, comfortable & clean too. I smile when I go in & when I step out too...terrific experience, no problems
Had my first root cannal, I was very nervous, but the doctor handled everything perfectly, I did not feel anything, best dentist I ever been too,and will continue coming to.
Dr. Salamon is extremely thorough. He has an excellent bedside manner and extremely trustworthy. I travel from New Jersey because I trust his work and have recommended him to others. His office staff is also quite personable. Definitely a great find!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this Dentist and his beautiful warm inviting office. He is so warm and sensitive to my needs. I am a very nervous dental patient and he makes me feel relaxed and cared for. His bedside manner is absolutely perfect. His office is spotless and beautiful and so up to date. His staff are the nicest people I have ever met. His dental work is amazing. He knows so much about everything and is so gentle and caring. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. He is the first Dentist I have ever had that I actually look forward to seeing.
Great dentist, a bit of a joker but who doesn't like that??? I do and always recommend him to my friends and family
The usual.... Good time, no pain, fun time. . ???????? My favorite Dentist
The dentist aas very friendly. The office was clean. I enjoyed his services and would go back.
Dr. Rafailov is the best dentist I have ever been too! He was personable and made me feel extremely comfortable. He worked quickly AND efficiently. I could not believe how painless and easy my appointment was. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Rafailov and his lovely staff.
Another great visit with the Doc, as expected.. ??
excellent service, having been coming for a couple of years and will continue to do so.
Work diligently to satisfy his clients.
This was my very first visit with this dentist and it was a wonderful experience. Dr, Rafailov and his staff made me feel special. The office is so clean you can eat off the floor. The examination is so thorough and state of the art. Everyone including Dr. Rafailov is so efficient and very organized. I recommend Dr. Rafailov and the place emphatically. If I could I would give 1 million stars. Five stars is not enough
He is great! Hard to find a good Dentist and when u do u keep him. Office is so friendly and nice. Dr rafailov commutes well with u. Concerned with how you are doing threw out the whole visit! Thank u for your help today!
My family and I have been Dr. Rafailov's patients for 7 years. His examinations and treatments are very thorough. His staff are friendly and professional. A little over 2 years ago, he did some major work for my friend's boyfriend and saved his teeth (while others told him that he would have to lose most or all of his teeth). Her boyfriend has been doing well ever since.
Dr. S. Rafailov answer whatever question you may ask and he explain in detail. For me that was very important.
Dr. Salamon was a pleasure!
Awesome, so glad i switched over.
I've been going to see this dentist for about 2 years now, he's great. The place is nice and clean. The receptionist is really nice and always sends you reminders for your next appointment, text, email or call. The dental assistants are really nice as well.
I highly recommend Salamon Rafailov. Extremely professional.
Dr. Rafailov is absolutely the best, in every way! The office is in Queens and I travel here all the way from Staten Island to see him. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Dr. Rafailov and his amazing staff. Your teeth will be in the very best hands! We've been going there for a few years now, and very happy! He's extremely knowledgeable, personable, and really takes the time to go over the issues with you and explain everything in a way that you can understand. I can't recommend this doctor enough.
Dr Rafailov has the patience of a Saint! He always encouraged me to let him know if there were any problems. Needing dentures was very difficult for me, but his patience, reassurance, & skill made it happen. Totally satisfied now. Thank you Dr Rafailov.
My visit was great and painless
Quick and attentive front desk. This dentist was recommended to me by a friend and I can see why. Nice man, wasn't overly chatty but great bedside manner.
Out of the many dentist that I have been to throughout my life, Dr.Rafailov is without a doubt, the best!! ????????
Besides feeling welcome, Dr. Rafailov wasn't sincere to me, I don't know what went on with him that day of my appointment but for sure he never told me the truth about my teeth. After doing all procedures (x-rays, teeth cleaning) which by the way he did not do a very good job, he said to me that I don't have any cavities and that my teeth are healthy. I knew better I had something going on even though he insisted. Bottom line, people be careful, if your unsure about something just just ask or do something like finding another doctor.
Dr. Rafailov is very pleasant and knowledgeable. He has done a great job with my root canal. He is very patient and passionate about what he does. He also cares about his patient's well being. The office is nice, clean with welcoming members. Highly recommended.
Magical: Loving my New Smile?? Thank You!!!
My visit was excellent!
My current dental procedure has been a difficult journey for me. Dr. Rafailov has been of great help in getting me through it. Very patient & supportative!!!!!
An absolutely consummate professional practicing in a state of the art office. What more could you ask for?
He is a great doctor,very knowledgeable.
Always a pleasant experience!!!
the doctor was extremely professional and was able to find and treat my problem quickly; i had severe aches in my lower molar and had to fix it with a root canal. Am looking forward to returning for my crown.
Friendly staff, great service!
Very friendly office and staff.
he is a perfectionist not happy until the job is done to his satisfaction
I think he's awesome! Best dentist I've ever been to hands down!
Best service and staff was so friendly.
Got my wisdom tooth pulled out and it literally took maybe 1 minute, was painless, no swelling, didn't have to be put on laughing gas, just had local anesthetic. Highly recommended if you need to get your wisdom tooth pulled out! Also went for teeth cleaning and it was great too!
So far it was good ! Let's see how it goes later on .
So far so good for my first visit.
Dr. Rafailov is a great doctor. He cares about all his patients and knows them all by name. During my time in his office he was referring to everyone by their names and spending a lot of time with all his patients. His rooms are so high tech that you would never know that you're getting dental work done. He has cable tv in the operating rooms. I have recommended all my family to him including all my friends as far out at CT.
excellent, was very professional, courteous and friendly at the office!
Professional and Friendly treatment
I had a great first experience! He was professional,courteous and respectful! He was nice and to the point!
he was so kind and patience with me. i really appreciate these in a dentist.
Excellent . Thank you so much .
Amazing. That's all I can say. Haven't seen a dentist in 2 years. Came in. Sat about 10min. Was called in Was greeted by the doctor and the hygienist Karina. Both were very friendly and professional. Karina did the cleaning and x-ray. Asked if I was comfortable each time. Would definitely recommend them and will be back again in 6 months. Thanks again Dr. Rafailov and Karina.
Dr. Solomon is great at what he does. I go for general cleaning but he did a full dental reconstruction on my mom and did a phenomenal job. I would definitely recommend. He also has a great sense of humor! Makes the dentist visit a little less daunting!
I wish all my doctors were like him!!!
My medicaid can't cover some of the work that I need done, but he said he'll work on a plan for me!! =)
Excellent! All doctors should be like Dr. Rafailov.
Dr. Salamon was very friendly and caring about my needs. He took care of me painlessly in less than 30 minutes. the office was also very clean and modern and was overall, pleasant to be in. will definitely return and I will recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Salamon Rafailov is hands down the best dentist in NYC! Attentive to patients concerns! No wait time at all!!! The office is absolutely spotless and has cable TV in the waiting area and operating rooms. I highly recommend Dr. Rafailov!
Very easy going and good doctor..
Great doctor- Answered all our questions
Clean, brand new office. Professional manner. Quick and painless cleaning. I will be returning.
I love this place! Really the staff is great and DR. Ravailov is very welcoming and friendly. His work is extraordinary. He plays music on YouTube while working. He's a funny guy lol... Anyways. If you need work done, go see him . You won't regret it!!!!!!
I decided to give this Dr. a try after seeing his availability on Zocdoc but i regret going to him. He looked like a friendly guy from his picture and even the first few minutes on interacting with him, but it is all a facade. Unfortunately his bedside is also very poor (maybe its because I didnt pay for the expensive services?). In any case, he does a poor job explaining what he will be exactly doing. When I asked pertinent questions, he seemed irritated and so I stopped. I did not feel comfortable going to him. One instance: He expected me to respond to him while he was working in my mouth! um what?! I will admit he did a good job with the issue(with a lot of pain). He did not do what I went in for but for a crown on another tooth. His receptionist was very kind. Office was well kept. Regardless, I will not be going back there.
I love it!!
Dr.Salamon made me feel very comfortable and welcomed (since i havent been to the dentist in a while) while giving professional advice. I wanted to get my teeth whitened for next visit but he recommended that I should wait till after pregnancy for the safety of the baby (which I was unaware could cause effects to harm my child).
He was more interested in doing Botox on my face than helping me with the paid in my tooth
very kind, very informative regarding treatment options, gave thorough explanations to questions, cleaning was speedy and done well!
Staff was friendly, Dr. Salamon is very professional, knowledgable and made me feel comfortable. Will refer others !
Highly professional, great staff. I always dreaded going to the dentist, he put you at ease right away ,wonderful dentist,100% satisfied.
The Dr. is just th best.
Very kind respectful. Office was very nice and clean
I've needed work done on my teeth but always hated going to the dentist like alot of people. Now I actually look forward to it! Thanks to Dr. Rafailov, I'm smiling all the time now whereas before I would smile as little as possible or with my mouth closed. He is warm and caring and upfront about everything. He's also a funny guy! I still have alot of work left but I am extremely happy with the results so far. I highly reccomend Dr. Rafailov and Bright White Dental to anyone looking for a caring, skilled dentist. Thank you!
Good dentist, nice man!
I love this doctor!!! My tooth was hurting me so much and decided to go Dr Salamon after reading some great reviews. Sometimes I'm sceptical about them, but he proved them all right. Was called in right away. He took an X-ray and identified the infection I had. Took of the old cheap gunky crown my old dentist put. Cleaned it out and placed a temporary crown and was told I will receive a call in a few days for the permanent crown. I was actually able to eat for the first time in a week normally. Went in today, received the permanent crown and now feel like a new person again. Highlights: I went before rush hour, so was accepted right away. Be courteous and he will explain everything step by step. Very clean and neat office compared to my previous dentist. And best of all!!! No more pain and can finally eat! Thank you doctor, and of course special thanks to my insurance company. In conclusion: I have found my new doctor
Very impressed. Walked in. Gave my information, did not have time to sit down, they told me to come in. Went in. Doc explained everything A-Z boom boom boom, procedure complete, and i am in and out in less than 35 min. That's what i call service. Well, in this case A+ Patient Care.
I personally do not like going to dentists ever since I was young, most of my visits have been troublesome due to rude staff members and dentists in other offices; however, going to Dr. Rafailov's office changed all of that! My visit was very pleasant! The staff was super helpful and nice and the doctor was great! Definitely made my visit comforting and already on planning on going back! I highly recommend him!
Dr Salomon is a well manner doctor. I received a great service from him and his assistant Maria. I will recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good dentist. I had enjoyed my time over there.
A very good, helpful dr willing to help me have the best teeth possible.
The Dr & his receptionist was very nice. The place was clean and the wait wasn't long.
The best dentist in town. I swear by him. I wish every dentist was as kind and caring as him.
Dr. Salamon, I saw on Friday, Feb 24 and he's hands down the best dentist I have ever seen!!! Waited literally 2 minutes for my appointment. Dr. Salamon didn't rush through the appt. in order to move on to his next patient like all other dentists/doctors always do. He spent time with me and walked me through all of my concerns and wasn't condescending at all. My previous dentist always made me feel stupid every time I asked a question. I'd highly encourage him to anyone who is looking for a new dentist. I really wish he specialized in pediatric as well so I could take my 2 and 4 year olds to him. Lol, I guess that's the only downside with Dr. Salamon. My previous dentist always pushed me into getting other services and procedures done and I couldn't stand that side of him. I can't wait to see him next. Thank You Dr. Salamon.
Amazing doctor! The only dentist I trust. I am generally afraid of dentists, but Dr. Rafailov makes you feel confortable and welcomed. He listens to the client and delivers excellent results. I was complaining of pain in my teeths and after listening to my concerns he fixed my problem. No more pain! . Thank you Dr. Rafailov for helping me be pain free and giving me my smile back. The staff is excellent as well. The receptionist is very friendly and accommodating. Overall, excellent service and outstanding people delivering great care. I highly recommend that you visit Dr. Rafailov.
He was Good
He did a good job
Courteous, friendly & very understanding.
It was a great visit. He is very cool. I definitely will be visiting again.
Dr. Rafailov was attentive and friendly, as was his receptionist. He also informed me of methods to pay for certain procedures my insurance did not cover. Highly recommend. He will be my permanent Dentist from this point on. Go see him, you won't be disappointed.
