Doctor Lipner is wonderful. I booked him because I thought I am going to have a root canal and I saw reviews online that he is an expert. However, after a thorough check he recommend me not do the root canal.He immediately introduce me to another great dentist in the same office with him and comfort me that he is awesome, and if anything is needs in the future he would know. I would recommend him to anyone.

Although my husband and I were running late to his dental appointment, we didn't have a long wait to see the doctor. We had a great visit with Dr. Lipner. He was kind and professional. My husband is looking forward to his root canal.

After having a horrific root canal experience with another dentist (the guy cleared out only 1 of the 2 roots and put the filling on the side of my tooth instead of in the root), I found Dr Lipner through ZocDocand checked out his other online reviews. He took a look at my mouth, prepared me I may lose the tooth, but helped me understand what needed to be done to end the pain I was experiencing. He's just the best. He saved my tooth, corrected the root canal, and removed the filling that the other dentist put in the wrong part of my mouth. IT WAS PAINLESS! He is very profession, and just knows what to do, he's an expert. I'm going to book all my dental appointments through his office. Oh, and his front desk just rocks. They are all awesome, helpful, and it's a great environment in there. Book him.

He was very nice. I've gone to so many dentist with different things over the years, because we move often, and it's very nice to find someone who takes the time to explain things to you as well as listen to what you have to say.

Great doctor. Told me exactly what I needed to know. Walked out of the consultation feeling confident I had received good guidance! Followed up today for a RCT and everything went great. Very professional and friendly :].

Visited Dr. Lipner a couple of months ago. I came in on the wrong day and on top of that, right before the office closed and he was still able to accommodate me. Just came here for a 2nd opinion and he was very thorough with his explanations.

Didn't see him, because I did not need a root canal after all. Although I had a very good experience.

He is a great doctor, very professional, caring and he takes the time explaining everything during and before the procedure. If you need a root canal, look no further, I don't think you can find any better doctor in NYC!

I went for a root canal for a tooth that had severe toothache. Dr Lipner did a very good job and even my dentist commented that the root canal was excellent. My pain died the same day!

Great service from the staff, aid and Doctor! Emailed about emergency root canal and responded right away during a holiday weekend! Was able to come in the next business day without any issues! The staff called me the very first thingin the morning to confirm my appointment and verified my cost, insurance and procedures before my appointment (which I requested ) Doctor explained everything thoroughly and gave me all my options! It was painless and effortless! I am used to root canals but for those of you who worry.... There is absolutely no need!!

Dr. Lipner had the best bedside manner of any dentist/doctor I have ever seen. I went in for an emergency root canal for a tooth that was very painful and infected. He walked me through the process, reassured me it wouldbe painless and communicated with me throughout the entire procedure, explaining what he was doing and what I would feel. The front desk was helpful and polite and the facilities were beautiful. Will absolutely be back and could not recommend more.

I had a root canal done last week and I recommend Dr. Lipner. I was nervous at beginning but his laid back attitude eased my nerves. The entire process was quick: it was less than one hour. Besides the first shotof anesthetics, I did not feel any pain throughout the process. He also spent time to describe the prescriptions that he gave me. I did not need to take pain killer after the procedure even though I got them.

One of the best!! He talked me through the whole Root Canal process and made sure I was comfortable and not in pain. I've always hated going to the Dentist, but he has changed that! He's amazing!

Just had a root canal done with Dr. Lipner and I couldn't be happier with my choice. He was extremely informative, honest and efficient. I felt zero pain (honestly I had no idea what was actually being done - it wasthat non-invasive). The receptionists clearly explained my insurance coverage and were super nice. There's also a Duane Reade literally next door so filling my prescriptions for post-care was easy.
