How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Chikunov is so nice and friendly. I had a bad experience with a dentist that nickel and dimed me for various "cavities" and procedures. Dr. Chikunov is realistic and will clearly articulate the urgency in potential procedures. Office is conveniently located in the West Village too.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Chikunov did my consultation and asked about my dental history and what I wanted to work on. He examined my and my x-rays and gave me different options for treatment. He was attentive, and explained everything he saw and how to go about addressing different things. I am extremely satisfied with this practice and will definitely be back.

How was your experience with the doctor?I really can't say enough good things about Dr. Chikunov. I have had many dentists over the years, and he is by far the best. If you need a dentist, you can't go wrong seeing Dr. Chikunov. And the other people who work in his office are all a nice as can be.

How was your experience with the doctor?Absolutely excellent! Dr. Chikunov listened to my complex history and concerns and set up a plan that worked for me. He was willing to do some of the necessary treatment right away, and wait for other stuff until my dental insurance kicks in again. He was really great, and the office staff were extraordinarily helpful. Highly, highly recommend!

How was your experience with the doctor?Just a basic cleaning; can't comment on more complex treatment. Everyone is extremely polite, and clear. Cleaning by a hygienist was very thorough and relatively painless. The office is clearly well designed to be very clean, and the music is pleasant. They did try to push some orthodontia, but within reason.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Chikunov is great - very friendly and easy to talk to. I love that he works on Saturdays as it makes things much easier for those of us with crazy week day schedules. For whatever reason, the past two times I have visited I have waited at least 30 minutes. Might just be a coincidence! Either way, I still continue to visit him.

I felt that he listened carefully and gave considered answers to my questions. I have no issues going to the dentist but if you do have any concerns or fears, I believe this doctor would look after you. I came for a check up and a clean and that is what I got.

How was your experience with the doctor?Igor was probably the most thorough dentist I've ever seen. He took the time to show me everything he saw and explained all of my options (e.g., sealant vs. porcelain inlay, etc.) -- at no point did I feel pressured to go any one route, and he assured me that I would be informed of my level of coverage before any procedure is done. Typically my cleanings have been completed by Dental Hygienists -- which is generally fine -- but Igor did the majority of the cleaning himself, with the assistance of a Hygeneist. I found this approach to be tremendous (teeth have never felt cleaner!). I will be back to Dr. Igor and will certainly be recommending him to other friends in NYC. Also -- office is clean and very well decorated (simple/modern).

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Chikunov was great As well as all the staff. I've mentioned I have sensitivity to cold while he was doing my crown, and guess what? He and his assistant (who was great and with excellent besides manners) managed to put warm water throughout the hoses of the dental chair! I have never had this kind of consideration from any other dentist, just for me to feel comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair while he worked. At the end, my crown was just perfect and the best thing, pain free!! Totally recommend Doctor Chikunov office.

How was your experience with the doctor?Impeccable experience, from great signage outside the office, to the private stairs to it, to the cool skylight in the lobby, to the state-of-the-art equipment. It's a no-frills experience, as well - there is no above-chair TV! -- but I am sure Dr. Chikunov would agree that's a small price to pay for zero wait time and an effective, no-nonsense cleaning by an understanding, transparent doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?My appointment with Dr Chikunov was great! His staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient. I am lucky to have healthy teeth so the visit consisted only of a routine cleaning, but even that was done very well. He was thorough but very gentle and paid close attention to my comfort throughout. I was very pleased!

How was your experience with the doctor?The doctor was willing to work with my needs and replace my lost filling right away. He made me feel at ease and explained everything clearly. He didn't push for me to get X-rays or additional work done on this visit, which was my preference. Overall excellent experience. Highly recommended!
