Fantastic experience. I get anxiety going to the dentist from past experiences, but Dr. Starkman was very personable, taking the time to get to know me which made me feel more comfortable. I went in for a cleaning and hand 2cavities filled, she explained the devices she was using and the methodology which helped reassuree my anxiety. This was my first dentist in NYC and I don’t intend on looking for another.

Dr. Starkman put me at ease from the second I walked into her office. She was easy to talk to and was super patient while she explained everything she’d be working on. Even more- she taught me so much about myteeth and the best way to take care of them. I found myself forgetting I was at the dentist because I felt like I was spending time with an old friend. Her care, humor, and professionalism had me leaving with a huge smile on my face!

She was personable, thorough, and sweet. We chatted throughout and she showed me how to properly floss. Dr. Starkman took me right away and did not rush our visit. Highly recommended.

I came in anxious about sensitivity I'd been experiencing near my gums. Dr. Starkman spent time explaining what was going on in many ways so I understood the problem and how to prevent it moving forward. She modeled what I cando on herself, on me, and with an anatomical model to ensure I really got it. She was incredibly thorough and caught other problem areas no other dentist had paid attention to. Moreover, she radiates kindness and an understanding of her patients holistic care. I trusted her immediately and eagerly scheduled my 5 month follow up. She'd get 6 stars if I could grant them. Highly recommend!! (I've seen many doctors via zocdoc and this is my first review -- she earned it!)

Dr. Starkman completely exceeded my expectations. This was my first time to the dentist in 8 years, so you can imagine the apprehension I felt before the appointment. It was her last appointment of the day and you'd never be ableto tell because she had a fantastic energy and patience. Such a friendly woman! Dr. Starkman did an excellent job cleaning my teeth -- she was thorough and spent a lot of time making sure the cleaning was done correctly. She also gave me some very helpful tips on how to maintain a healthier oral hygiene. Highly recommend her -- I already scheduled a follow up appointment.

Dr. Starkman is the best! She pays so much attention to detail and makes sure you’re perfectly happy with everything before the appointment is over. She’s so easy to talk to and makes going to the dentist actually fun. Another plusis that dealing with booking and rescheduling appointments is so seamless with her—she’s very flexible and will text me with any updates, so I’m always in the know. She’s totally transformed my smile and I’ve only been seeing her for maybe six months or so. I highly, highly recommend her!

Dr. Starkman was extremely warm and personable. I usually hate going to the dentist (it had been a while since my last check up and cleaning) and she made it a breeze. Will happily be returning as a regular patient.

Dr Starkman is a fantastic dentist. I walked in, she saw me right away (and at 7pm for that matter so I didn't have to miss any work). She got to know me and answered all of my questions, quickly identifyingand solving the issues I came in with. Her cavity filling was super quick and painless. Highly recommend!
