Dr Shapiro was the best dentist I've ever had, she was really great at explaining everything and made sure I was comfortable in each situation. My only gripe was that I was under the impression that they were in-network as they have Metlife PDP Plus listed but that apparently is not the case; definitely wish that was updated but still appreciate her work.

I've been seeing the same dentist since I was 3, so I was very nervous when it came time to switch practices. After seeing all the high reviews, I figured it couldn't hurt to give this place a try. I am SO glad I did! Ken at the front desk is super friendly and very organized, there was no confusion about my insurance/medical history because he pulled it directly from here, which saved a lot of time/headaches/paperwork. The Dental Assistant (whose name I forget, apologies!) was also super friendly and had everything ready to go for my appointment when I arrived. Finally, Dr. Shapiro couldn't have been more personable and professional, plus she did a great job cleaning my teeth and explaining to me how dental x-rays work and the things she could see in the pictures. She even supplied me with a fantastic breakfast spot to hit around the corner once my appointment has finished. I was in and out within 20 minutes- no problem! For once, I am looking forward to going back to the dentist, thank you Dr. Shapiro and team!

I found Dr Yelena on Zocdoc and she had amazing ratings and feedback and I asked for an appointment next day and I got it. Let me start with her staff and front desk which are so nice courteous and professional and made everything so quick and smooth including calling my previous dentist and reuqatd of transfer of all my xrays etc. then the Dr saw me and did her consultation and cleaning g and polishing which was excellent, smooths and easy. I highly recommend Dr Yelena and I will definitely make her my main dentist in the city. The clinic is modern, quiet and clean. Thank you all for making this experience (going to the dentist) a nice and happy one :) And thanks To Zocdoc for making this so easy and convenient. Excellent applications and customer service.

I was nervous going in because I hadn't seen a dentist in over a year, but Dr Shapiro made me feel super comfortable and well informed throughout my dental cleaning and fluoride treatment. As the treatment went on, I could feel my nervousness fading away. She comes off as a very caring person, a quality that immediately makes you feel that your treatment is in good hands. She gave me helpful suggestions and next steps, with a nice little goodie bag at the end. I was in and out in less than an hour with a big, clean, and refreshing smile on my face. Definitely one of the best dentists I have visited in my life. Highly recommended!

Very good experience. I hadn’t been to the dentist in ages but she was very understanding and walked me through everything she was doing. She also seemed genuinely happy to be treating teeth which helps (she got excited looking at my xrays because of how good of a job she did cleaning my teeth which was cute). I had to wait a little bit (30 mins) before being seen so I suppose if I was in a rush it would have been an issue but I can’t complain.
