She is a great Dentist.
Great experience! gentle and thorough.
It was fast and great service. Also the office playlist is amazing.
Dr. Baston was great. Straight to the point, friendly, and helpful.
She was excellent. Very professional and honest, although the office can be busy
Incredibly friendly doctor and staff, welcoming office, informative and straightforward treatment. I saw Dr. Baston for a cavity filling and was in and out within the hour. Five star recommendation!
I was very pleased with this office from beginning to end. Very friendly staff and I was seen on time. Dr. Baston made a rather unpleasant visit to the dentist very tolerable and assisted me with setting up other appointments. Im very glad with my choice to visit the office.
The staff was very warm and friendly (highly apologetic about the slight wait time). The doctor was very professional and helped explain each process we went through clearly and made sure to tell me how much things cost before I agreed to them (which many doctors don't think to do).
I am petrified of the dentist. Dr. Baston recognized this and was exceptional. As a new patient with a dental emergency she took time to explain what was happening and the next steps to achieving a truly healthy smile. Cleaning was gentle and was pivotal in me overcoming a juvenile fear.
Dr. Baston was very attentive and gave me lots of information on how to better take care of my teeth. I appreciated her attention to detail. Her assistant was also very friendly and attentive.
Dr. Baston was very thorough, gentle, and knowledgeable. The office is conveniently located and the staff are professional and nice.
I was not terribly happy with my experience. First, the technician taking the X-rays on my mouth seemed inexperienced because she was causing tremendous pain each time she took an X-ray. The next day I figure out that the roof of my mouth is scraped and sore from the metal pieces she put in during the X-ray, which I have never had happen before and I have had plenty of dental X-rays. Another odd thing at the appointment was that the dentist was the one who actually cleaned my teeth. Every appointment I've ever had a hygienist does the cleaning and the dentist comes in at the end to make sure you do not have any cavities, etc. However, the dentist was the one who did everything (besides the x-rays) from the very beginning. The office was nice, staff was friendly, and I didn't have to wait, but overall I thought the staff who worked with me weren't particularly experienced and I wouldn't go back.
Didn't wait at all. Very professional and friendly.
Dr. Baston herself was great, the office staff were pretty disorganized, however. I filled out my insurance forms on ZocDoc but they still called me for this information and later had me fill it out in the office again. They also rescheduled and reconfirmed my appointment twice. I ended up on the phone with the office about 6 times in one week. This was not great, especially since ZocDoc's goal is to streamline the appointment process. Also, the process of getting my x-rays took a while - seems like they have a number of kinks to work out in the office.
Dr. Baston always makes my dentist experience a pleasure. She is thorough, honest, and precise. I wouldn't go to another dentist but her!
Dr. Baston rushed through my cleaning - did not feel thorough, but rather haphazard and not very gentle - she jammed tools into my gums throughout the cleaning. She was also dismissive of my concerns and was unconcerned about the stream of water pouring out the side of my mouth and down my neck, even when I mentioned. Would not recommend and will look for a new dentist (although her hygienist and receptionist were super friendly).
The x-rays took 35 minutes to complete. The Dr. actually had to stop the assistant from helping because she couldn't complete the task. Super disappointing visit overall.
Dr baston was very nice (although I had a problem with a filing she did not being completely filled and had to go to an emergency dentist to fix it) The main reason why I won't go back to Dr Baston is because the receptionist is the worst. Takes almost as long to check out as it did to get the filing. She never handles just one customer at a time, she tries to do too many things at once and then forgets what she was doing or does something wrong on your account and it takes another 15 min to fix it. Happens every time.
I liked Dr Baston a lot, she seems very capable and careful. Her hygienist seemed very inexperienced and struggled to do xrays and find things, but maybe she is new...
Wonderful! Super friendly & knowledgeable. Answered questions and concerns with care and did a great, quick, but thorough job. Also loved all the ladies at the front desk--everyone was really cool. A very pleasant experience overall.
very nice, kind, professional
Very sweet, great bedside manner. She took her time with me and was very thorough. Office was immaculate, was seen right away. Highly recommended.
Welcoming and friendly staff. Happy with the treatment and experience in the chair
Excellent staff and Dds.
I thought Dr. Baston was great - friendly, thorough, but not too intense. I felt like she got to know me and provided good care. The office staff were friendly, and seemed happy, even though I visited on a Sunday! My name was on the list, so I had no problem getting into the building, and all of my paperwork was processed beforehand.
Professional, thorough, cute, nice and skilled. Boom.
Very pleased. She was very professional and pleasant. Staff very good & helpful.
Dr. Baston was very straightforward and direct. She told me exactly how much the procedure would cost (after insurance) before doing it.
Although the wait time was a bit longer than I'm used to and the 2 ladies at the front desk were bickering rather loudly (which I thought was inappropriate), it was the best dentist appointment I have ever had in my 27 years of going to the dentist. Dr. Baston was extremely friendly and calm, which helps because going to the dentist can be rather stressful, so her personality really helped me to relax. She clearly explained everything she was doing and was happy to answer all of my questions. She is very thorough with her work and even went the extra mile to fill my toothpaste prescription so it was ready when I got to my pharmacy. It was the shortest and least painful cleaning I have ever had. The lobby was very nice and comfortable. The room I was in had really nice artwork on the wall and the light fixture on the ceiling had an image of a beautiful blue sky with some clouds on it, which was quite nice when laying back in the chair. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
The reason for the delay was the paperwork, so not their fault. Overall the appointment was longer than expected, but they were shorthanded and Dr. Baston was great and worth the wait. So happy to have found a quality dentist in Manhattan!
Sasha Baston is a great dentist. She is very professional, informative and pleasant.
I thought she was very personable and professional. Highly recommended!
