Dr. Boruchov is terrific, and he saved me hundreds. I needed to see a dentist for some out-of-the-blue gum swelling, and I had been meaning to get a cleaning anyway, since it had been waaaay too long. I tried booking with Dr. Boruchov first, but he hadn't actually moved into his Brooklyn location and I couldn't wait, so I ended up seeing an impeccably reviewed, highly recommended (on ZocDoc) dentist in midtown. The midtown dentist really tried to put the fear of God in me when I saw him and told me I was in need of a special deep cleaning that wouldn't be covered by my insurance, as well as a night guard - which for those who don't know is a mouth guard that must be worn every night to prevent grinding. These must be specially made for your mouth, are very expensive and rarely covered by insurance. He scheduled an appointment for the next week for the cleaning and gave me some prescriptions for my gums in the meantime. I was horrified upon leaving this appointment, but after using the prescriptions for two days, the swelling and pain in my gums had completely disappeared, and my inner skeptic started questioning the severity of his other diagnoses. Only at this point did it occur to me that his recommendations may have been based on what I disclosed in the forms I filled out (that it had been a very long time since my last cleaning, and that I grinded my teeth sometimes), and that he had spend very little time actually looking in my mouth. I saw Dr. Boruchov to get a second opinion before going through with the expensive procedures recommended by the first dentist - one of the smartest decisions I have ever made. Dr. Boruchov understands patients whose income is not unlimited, unlike most of the doctors I've visited in midtown Manhattan. When I asked him about grinding my teeth, he told me he could barely tell from looking at my teeth and it wasn't serious enough to warrant a night guard. When I asked about the cleaning, he was confident a regular cleaning would probably take care of me, and offered to meet me two weeks later to confirm. If you have ever let too much time pass between cleanings, you know it can be extra painful or intensive, but Dr. Boruchov cleaned my teeth with minimal pain in no time at all - maybe five minutes. I came back in two weeks to get two cavities filled and to get that second look at my gums. Gums looked fine - turns out I definitely didn't need that deep cleaning. Because the cavities were so small, Dr. Boruchov stressed that we didn't even need to do the fillings (though it was probably better to do it now in case the cavities got bigger) - I don't know about you, but I have NEVER had a doctor actually tell me a recommended procedure was not necessary and it was up to me whether or not I wanted to have it done now, or wait. He made it very clear what the benefits/risks would be for doing it now vs later, and only proceeded when I told him I might as well take care of it now. He then filled two cavities in 5 minutes flat - if that. It was completely painless and the fillings are invisible. I will definitely be returning to Dr. Boruchov for all future dental appointments. He is one of the most refreshingly honest doctors I have seen in my life, and his skills and equipment are absolutely top notch. I'm already recommending him to friends and strangers.
