Dr. Silhan is a great dentist. Professional and friendly.
Dr Silhan is one of the best dentists in Manhattan. I highly recommend him.
I've been going to Dr. Silhan for years now he's the best dentist I've ever had. Prompt, efficient, and painless treatments.
This is the best dentist I’ve been to in a long time. He explained the process and we went along and I was very happy with the services provided. Highly recommend.
He was thorough and explained everything he was doing. It was a quick cleaning and I felt well informed. He did not try to sell me on anything. He was also conversational which was nice. I left feeling very happy.
Dr Silhan is one of the best dentists in NYC. He had the training, experience and judgment to recommend and provide the best possible care. I now live in LA, but still come back to Dr Silhan when I visit my family in NY.
Dr. Silhan is great! There is never a wait time, and all my appointments have been straightforward and as painless as possible. He explains everything really well too, so that I'm never left with any questions.
explains all treatment very professional, knowledgeable would highly recommend
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable; quickly fixed a chip I had in my tooth!
One of the easiest trips to the dentist I've had. I got there 5 minutes early and was seen right away. Dr. Silhan was smart and easy-going but thorough with all of my questions. I'll definitely be returning.
Dr. Silvan is everything you could want in a dentist. I've been going to him for years and would recommend anyone to see him.
Dr Silhan is incredibly kind and will walk you through every step. He's a real educator which is great if you're not particularly a fan of the dentist!
Very kind and attentive. Took the time to educate me on my X-rays and to explain different things about my teeth.
Dr. Sihan was great! He did a good job of explaining the process of what he was doing and why. Knowledgeable and very personable, would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.
Dr. Silhan is wonderful. If you ask, he will take the time to explain everything to you -- you can have a learning experience while he cleans your mouth. He takes you through any x-rays he takes and gives great recommendations to manage any problem you may have. Highly recommend!
Third time with Dr. Silhan. Always a quick, yet thorough appointment. Happy I've found a dentist in the city I like to go to and trust.
He was very friendly and professional, and the appointment was very concise.
Dr. Silhan is a straight shooter.
Dr. Silhan is always quick to see me, no waiting time. He is very pleasant and makes a visit to the dentist an easy going experience.
He does the cleaning in like 25-30 min...doesn't feel like its super cleaned though. I mean he does a decent job but i feel its rushed. I think one time I was in and out in 25 min flat, the cleaning itself should be that time..
Amazing... how is it possible that one could enjoy going to the dentist? With Dr. Steven Silhan, it is.
The doctor was super sweet and very kind, however the technology was totally outdated so all the x-rays were taken manually, one of each tooth. I had to go back to see him for the results.
Dr. Silhan is knowledgeable, thorough, and efficient. I am very happy with the care I have received from him.
Very prompt and informative (kept me up to date with everything going on, what he expected to find, what he actually found, things I can improve on *blush*, things I'm doing well). All around a great experience.
I've been seeing Dr. Silhan since early 2000s and would never consider going anywhere else. Professional, friendly and when he fixes something it stays fixed.
Professional, friendly, will recommend.
Dr. Silhan is quick, efficient, and an overall nice guy. I look forward to our appointments as I know he'll make them easy on me!
Very professional, experienced, caring dentist.
Dr. Silhan was very kind and thorough as he checked my teeth. He explained everything he was doing & answered all my questions in a very easy to understand way. His office was very clean and easy to find. I was 10 minutes late & he was very accommodating.
He's my favorite dentist by far. He doesn't badger you about flossing in comparison to others who had been very aggressive. He's friendly and professional - I highly recommend him. My appointment was by far the quickest I've had, only 10 mins for a routine cleaning.
Quick, painless, and felt in good hands.
Dr. Silhan was so lovely! Went in early on a Saturday morning and was seen right away. He offered a lot of knowledge regarding my procedure and was overall so great. I truly enjoyed my visit. I will definitely be back.
Office is older and a little dated but Dr. Silhan is very friendly and professional. No wait and I was in and out of the office with clean teeth in less than 20 minutes!
He was very rough with my teeth. When cleaning away plaque he made all of my gums bleed because of stabbing them instead of gently cleaning around them. I felt as though he was in a hurry to be over with my appointment and was not worried about my best interest. He was a nice enough person, but as a dentist I would not visit again.
Dr. Silhan was very thorough and took the time to answer concerns I had after having discomfort following a procedure with another dentist. He put my concerns to rest.
Dr. Silhan was fantastic! The office staff was welcoming and easy to work with. I was late for the appointment but he was really understanding about it and saw me immediately. The appointment was thorough and quick, which was great! Dr. Silhan was understanding about my questions and helped me understand more about my dental health. I highly recommend his practice and am looking forward to my next appointment!
On time and friendly as always. Trustworthy.
Dr. Silhan was nice but his practices were not hygienic. He did not use gloves and cleaned blood off the spit drain with his thumb
Always professional and always explains what he is doing and why. A dentist who is actually pleasure to visit.
Easygoing, sensible, and straightforward.
Very friendly and knowledgable. Would recommend him to friends and family
Nice office. Friendly staff. Doc Silhan is a real nice guy, will definitely be back.
I had a checkup and cleaning. He was excellent. I learned a lot about maintaining my teeth and gums while he worked, and he showed me certain areas on my teeth that I should be aware of. Getting your teeth cleaned is not usually pleasant, but I actually learned a lot of useful info and got in and out quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Silhan.
Excellent! Great neighborhood dentist.
Great dentist, very friendly, explains what he's doing as he does it and as it relates to overall dental health. I was actually 25 mins late to my appointment and he still saw me right away and did a great (if a bit "express" due to my tardiness) job cleaning my teeth. His experience shows with his demeanor and ease with which he gets things done. Will be going back.
The office is so dirty and the tools are not sealed as supposed to be! They are just sitting in a dirty drawer and look like the have never been cleaned. I Am mad at myself that I didn't speak up, I should have ran when I got in the office! This place is completely un sanitary !!
needed a new filling due to broken one. Dr. Silhan waited for the novocaine to work, so I didn't feel a thing. I had his number for follow up if I had any problems, which I didn't. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Silhan is an absolute keeper. I was early and he had time so he took me right away. I have constant sinus issues so I am not the easiest patient when you get in the way of me breathing. He was calm, gave me time when I needed it and was super accommodating. Oh, and he did great work. Needed a filling after it my tooth basically disintegrated and I was home eating with no pain or discomfort and a perfect bite within 3 hours. Cannot recommend him enough.
Dr. Silhan is very personable, service was very quick and my overall experience was great! I was immediately greeted by both himself and his assistant on arrival to the office and left 25 mins later with clean teeth! The office is a bit dated but in an easily accessible location. Would definitely recommend Dr. Silhan - particularly to anyone located in the Stuy Town area.
This office was one of the dirtiest and dingiest doctor's office I have ever experienced. The tools are just in a drawer and not in sterile bags, gloves are stored in a disgusting container on the wall, and the whole place did not even look close to clean. Nice guy, but really needs to up his sanitary standards.
He is a dentist that is trustworthy. He won't do work on you if it's not necessary .
Really fast and cleaning teeth, not sure if its just him or my teeth were good which he did say they where haha. Also paperwork was quick too ( it was my first time seeing a dentist in nyc)
As a new patient, my experience with Dr Silhan was great! He is a very personable, and professional dentist who makes you feel like a part of the process by keeping you informed during every step of your dental procedure. He also explains things in a way that really conveys his concern for your well being. I'm someone who has had prior negative experiences with other dentists, but Dr Silhan on the other hand, was very refreshing!
Dr. Silhan was really awesome. He explained everything he was doing each step of the way. I was seen right away which is something I've never experienced with a dentist. He was really nice and I actually look forward to coming back for my next cleaning.
The Doctor put me at ease right away and explained everything he was doing before hand.
Great Doctor very informative!
I take dental appointments/teeth very seriously, but this was my first visit in three years (!!). He was matter of fact, informative, encouraging, and helpful from the beginning - and did the entire cleaning himself. Great to be back to dental care, and great to find a great doctor.
Dr Stephen knows exactly what he is talking about, explained to me the steps I needed to take and took his time explaining what my problem was...He was professional and very very nice...
The visit was great. He talks through everything he does, which to me was new. Usually my dentist refer to teeth in their numeric identification when speaking about them to their hygienists. Dr. Silhan spoke to me about my teeth in terms I can understand and even tried to take guesses about my habits and conditions based on what he saw (he said I had a high arch, so he assumed I had allergies which I do and my gums were receding on my right side so he guessed I was a leftie who brushes too hard, this time he was wrong). He was very open, friendly, quick and nice. Highly recommended and happy with my choice.
Very friendly. Best cleaning of my life. highly recommend
Dr. Silhan was one of the best dentists I've had. He explained everything so I understood what was going on.
Dr. Silhan has accurately diagnosed and spared what could have been a more serious and ongoing problem. Thumps up!
I highly recommend Dr. Silhan! He was very helpful and if I need dental care in the future I will definitely be going back to see him.
Dr. Silvan was wonderful! He did the cleaning and check up himself. He was very personable and explained everything he was doing very clearly. I will definitely be going back to see him!
great as always
Dr. Silhan was extremely caring and I felt like he thoroughly checked the condition of my teeth and gums during the dental exam.
Dr. Silhan is the single best dentist I've ever met. He explained all parts of the cleaning and exam, the "why" of what he was doing, easing any discomfort. I walked in, filled out my forms and was immediately seen. This is a small private practice and shouldn't be overlooked! I will be recommending him highly to all of my friends in NYC and look forward to my next cleaning, something I never thought I'd say! Thanks Dr. Silhan!!!
