Professional statement

*At the time of scheduling your appointment please provide your Dental Insurance ID number in order for us to verify eligibility and ensure that you will receive proper coverage for your first visit. **We require a current full mouth set of radiographs (typically 18 individual xrays) prior to any cleaning or comprehensive exam. Please obtain them from your previous provider, or we can easily take them in office, once we check your insurance eligibility. ***We kindly request a 24 hour notice for any cancellations. Thank you! Dentistry is an amazing profession permitting me to be both a healer and an artist. Growing up in St. Petersburg, the cultural center of Russia, has greatly influenced my perception of what is considered attractive.Beauty, then, is neither a trend nor perfection, but a balanced set of characteristics, making each of us unique. As a dentist, it became my goal to recreate and restore it seamlessly. I am an open book to my friends, students, colleagues as well as patients and believe that every encounter with a human being can be an opportunity to learn something. I am, therefore, always a student myself and aspire to be better each day. What I have learned so far is that there is nothing impossible as long as I dare to reach for it. My patients’ gratitude humbles me; their trust in my ability and talent is what makes me being a dentist a true privilege.”

Best and most pleasant dentist appointment I ever had. She is fantastic. Dr. Yungelson was humming while cleaning my teeth which made me feel very calm. And isn´t it just the best and shows she loves her job?! I usually dreadgoing to the dentist, Dr. Yungelson single handedly changed my perception. I would give her 10 stars if I could.

I had 3 cavities filled. The process was quick and almost painless (those Novocain needles always get me). For going to the dentist it was a pleasant experience. The office is comfortable and the receptionist/billing was very helpful with my insurance issues.

Haven't been to the dentist in years and was expecting the worst. Some cavities were found, but Dr Alterman was very nice while explaining the issues with my teeth and my options. She also spoke with me about how to takebetter care of my teeth in the future without pressure for more procedures. The hygienist was also very nice and gentle. The front desk was extremely helpful with figuring insurance costs. Overall great experience.

Dr. Alter man was very concerned with my well being throughout the intervention and made sure I was in no discomfort let alone pain. Nurse Christina (I hope I’m remembering her name correctly) was very attentive and caring all throughout thevisit. Will be making this practice my first dental care provider !

Very dispointing. It feel more like they sell you everything they can than really be concern about your dental health. The doctor talk about aesthetic in her description when it is the worst fill up i ever had. Painful, messy andlet me sharp and caved teeth. I’m also not sure if all the work that was done was necessary!! Definitely won’t use their services again.

CONS : I would go to her if you are getting treatment that is covered by insurance like regular dental cleaning. They charge you higher than what other dental offices do. (I'm guessing the rent is higher at this place?) PROS : Location. Wait time.

I was asked to come in for an earlier appointment but then wasn't actually seen by the dentist for over 30 minutes. I've been coming here for about a year and a half and haven't wanted to change dentists but Iwouldn't reccomend it because I feel like I'm not a priority when coming here.

I am very happy I started going to Soul Dental for my care. I have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist, and everyone there has been so understanding and kind, they go out of their way to makesure I feel comfortable and supported. The office is fresh, modern and a very calm environment. Dr. Alterman was very attentive, kind, gentle, efficient, and checked in with me along the way during my procedure.

I've been to Soul Dental twice, and this is definitely the last time I'll ever go there. They told me my gums were inflammed, which I fully believe. Here's why: six months ago, when I went for a cleaning, they weren'tinflamed. My gums were receding slightly and so the hygienist told me to brush more gently, to avoid brushing my gums, and to avoid hitting my gums when I floss. Which I did for six months. The lack of gum care led to my gums getting inflamed. Which I tried to explain to the dentist and a new hygienist this time around. They were dismissive; the hygienist even told me to YouTube "how to floss according to dentists" and I'd see that everyone flosses the way she was recommending, which directly contradicted the old hygienist's advice. In addition, the dentist tried to upsell me on a Sonicare electric toothbrush (I use an Oral-B electric) that was on display in the office THREE SEPARATE TIMES, and the hygienist tried to sell me on a fluoride treatment, an antibacterial mouthwash, and deep gum cleaning for the inflammation that came from their initial advice. I felt so put off after the appt; I'm finding a new dentist.

Dr. Alterman's staff did a great job cleaning my teeth, then provided me with a special mouthwash that creates calculus and told me that I needed periodontal treatment for my entire mouth. I've never been once informed from my prior dentistson Long Island that I am even at risk of periodontal disease. Now all of a sudden after 1 appointment I need a full mouth treatment....

Dr Alterman is always very professional but makes you feel comfortable especially since we all know going to the dentist isnt the most enjoyable time. I would recommend her to any and all my friends. Not only is she flexible withher time but she puts her patients first and accommodates schedules even when going on vacation with her family.
