How was your experience with the doctor?I didn’t actually see Dr. Dorfman, which the front desk failed to tell me about. But the other dentist I saw was fabulous. She got me in right away, explained my xrays and bone loss. My previous dentist (in California) would always try to do a procedure (fillers etc) to try and make more money probably, but the dentist here did not try to sell me anything. She also recommended me to a periodontics.

How was your experience with the doctor?Everything was great. Staff were all really friendly and efficient and the examination and cleaning were very thorough. The follow up appointment to do fillings was also great, and they were very communicative about insurance coverage and copay amounts. Have recommended this office to all my coworkers.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a wonderful experience at Dr.Dorfman's dental office. The staff were very friendly and you can tell that they have great comradery with one another. I didn't have to sign any paperwork since I already had. I was seen within 10-15 minutes. The dental hygienist gave me the most amazing, painless cleaning I've ever experienced. The cleaning lasted an hour where at other dental clinics, cleaning tends to be rushed and painful. I'm always left with an aching mouth. I wanted to cry tears of joy because I've finally found a dental clinic that is able to meet my expectations. And you can tell that the staff really care about the health of your teeth. Dr. Dorfman was honest about procedures and offered recommendations. I didn't feel pressured to do anything else other than what I came in for. After the visit, I walked away with a nice kit of toothpaste, tooth brush, floss and mouthwash. Recommending this place to ALL my friends and family!!!!

How was your experience with the doctor?She is really nice and professional. I have seen some other dentists and have been looking for the most suitable treatment plan, but most of them just tend to rush and sell. Doctor Dorfman made me feel warm because I feel she is actually thinking for her patients instead of selling. The other staff are also nice. Except for the dental treatment I also decided to do Invisalign. And this is the place I found most affordable so far (I mean compared to other dental offices, not those online companies). Overall, great experience. My friend recommended me here and I will recommend my friends with needs too.

I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone seeking dental/orthodontics services in lower Manhattan. Even though it's a bit of a commute for me, it is well worth the travel time to be treated by the best team.

How was your experience with the doctor?A lot of time with the assistant/hygenist; actual Dentist was in a hurry, didn't spend much time. My main issue is -- everyone at the office, from the assistant to the Dr was VERY pushy (suggesting I consider veneers for all my front teeth on the FIRST visit - completely unnecessary and very costly). I felt bombarded with things I should do/should have done; while this may be fine for when you've been a patient for a while, I thought it was very callous and aggressive for a first-time appointment.

How was your experience with the doctor?It was a pleasant visit in general. However I felt a little uncomfortable as there are no doors to their individual rooms so while they were cleanig my teeth all the sounds of everybody talking outside were a little overwhelming. Also did not like the fact that about four different people came in and talk to me throughout the process while there only need to be two. The doctor herself showed up for about a minute and then left. The nurses finished all the work. But they did get the job done.
