How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Pomerantz is the best! I have been going to him for 15 years. My friends and family go to him too! Everyone at the office is so sweet. His dental hygienists are always nice and are always gentle (I can’t be a chicken when it comes to dentists). Jenniffer is the newest hygienists and I can’t say enough good things about her! I hope he doesn’t retire anytime soon

How was your experience with the doctor?Finally found a friendly, honest and efficient dentist in the city. Dr Pomerantz recommends what is necessary (no random x-rays/check ups pushed at me) and gets the job done at a very reasonable price. He’s also very personable and cheerful which is a bonus for a dentist visit. I highly recommend him.

How was your experience with the doctor?De. Pomerantz is the absolute best. His service and work is excellent, the technology he uses is above and beyond and the staff is super pleasant and helpful. I had a cracked tooth that needed a crown ASAP. The receptionist spoke to Dr. Pomerantz who immediately said he would see me on that day despite he was going on vacation. I am so very grateful for this doctors services and the quality crown he did for me: his price is unbelievably inexpensive and highest quality ever. Would definitely recommend to anyone else.

How was your experience with the doctor?Had a really pleasant appointment with Dr Pomerantz. I scheduled my very first appointment with him for a second opinion on a procedure that I was told I needed by a prior dentist. Dr Pomerantz took the time to thoroughly inspect the tooth in question and was most helpful in explaining what he was doing and did not try to scare me into moving forward with a procedure that I did not need.

How was your experience with the doctor?Hello again! I left a review regarding my consult visit on 5/29 and what brought me to Dr. Pomerantz. Today was the beginning of the insertion of the right bridge that was giving me so many problems in the past. As expected- Dr. Pomerantz and his staff were incredible- patient, professional, thorough, and kind. He was so gentle and delicate knowing how much I had gone through in the past with the bridges being inserted incorrectly by other doctors. He took his time to make sure he was able to get the old bridge out with the least amount of force possible. It was not easy since the old bridge was made out of porcelain- but he managed to do it without using so much force as I have experienced in the past by other providers. He also took his time to make sure the temporary bridge I am wearing fit properly while the permanent one comes back. This is the 3rd time I undergo this kind procedure and I had the least amount of pain I have ever had in these situations. Dr. Pomerantz's care and attention throughout the whole process definitely made all the difference. I am actually excited to go back next week and get the permanent bridge put in and cross this off my medical/wellness list. Once the right side is done -I an going right back to start work on getting the left side replaced. I have never been this excited to go to the dentist for procedures that have been historically painful for me. I am so grateful that dentist like Dr. Pomerantz exist in the world!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Jeffrey Pomerantz truly is a hidden gem in the world of dentistry- he embodies extensive knowledge, kindness, professionalism, and passion for his work. I went to him after two different general dentist incorrectly inserted two bridges on my lower jaw. I have one on the right side of my lower and one on the left side. Long story short after discovering by a third dentist during a routine checking that it was done incorrectly on both occasions I was beyond stressed as I have always taken very good care of mouth. I knew I needed to find a new provider to do the job but I decided that this time I would not just filter my search by the list of the providers that my insurance recommended- I decided to find the best dentist that specializes in crowns and bridges no matter if it was a network provider or not. I was willing to pay for it all out of pocket in hope of finding the best provider. Luckily for me, he also happened to be listed in my insurance's website. I explained that he was the 4th person I had seen regarding this issue and I just needed these problems resolved so that I would not be at risk for infections due to the bridges being improperly inserted. Dr. Pomerantz took the time to explain in detail everything that was currently going on with the bridges. He told me his opinion and answered all my questions. He put me at ease and was able to spend plenty of time looking over all of my records. His staff is also phenomenal, patient, professional, and accommodating- his whole office is a reflection of his demeanor. I am actually looking forward to my visit next week where he will remove the left bridge (porcelain) to start the process and insert a new one. And while I have been through this before and know how much it can hurt to have this work done- I can actually say I am at peace knowing he will be the one doing the work. I can not recommend Dr. Pomerantz enough-- if I could give him more stars - I would!!

How was your experience with the doctor?I had two horrible experiences when I was a teenager with dentists and I had not been back to see one until yesterday. I was so terrified that the dentist would try to upsell me unnecessary cosmetic procedures or make me feel bad about myself for not having gone to the dentist in over twenty years. Dr. Pomerantz was kind and understanding. While he did mention the spaces in my teeth and that I could get Invisalign, and I said I wasn't interested, he was completely respectful of my wishes with no question. He assured me that when I get my teeth cleaned that I would be able to get Novacaine, which, considering it's been over twenty years...it's going to be long and somewhat painful. I felt respected, heard, and comforted. The office staff was very kind and attentive as well. I will be taking care of my teeth regularly now that I have a dentist I can trust.

How was your experience with the doctor?I am so glad I have found a professional who specializes in my area of concern, TMJD. Even though the reason for my visit was urgent to me, Dr. Pomerantz assured me that everything was okay and could be fixed with simple regimens which I followed and found to be effective. He seems to be an extremely intelligent professional and I enjoyed talking with him. Not a fan of the front desk staff though as there was an issue with my insurance and payment and she did not approach it kindly.

How was your experience with the doctor?I am blown away by my visit last week! One of my laminates (or veneers, not sure) cracked on one of my front teeth and was about to come off. I had set an appointment with my previous dentist for the following Monday, but it was Thursday and I needed to get it done sooner. Plus my former dentist would have made molds, given me a temporary and I'd have to come back again. Dr. Pomerantz was able to see me right away. The Dr. examined my tooth and told me he can fix it right now! I was then transported into the land of science fiction where the Dr. took a 3D image of my teeth and constructed a new tooth for me on a computer screen, designing it to perfection. Then he put the material into a machine which sculpted my tooth and he adhered it to my tooth. It looks, feels, and fit perfectly. No one included myself can see a difference. The entire appointment was 2 hours long and my insurance covered a good portion of the work. I don't think I have ever been more pleased walking out of any doctor's or dentist's office ever. I can't even begin to express how highly I think of Dr. Pomerantz and I definitely recommend him without any reservations. Great guy too.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was referred to this doctor by a friend and was very pleased with how I was treated. Dr. Pomerantz saw me as an emergency patient, performed a major procedure the same day because he didn't want me to have to wait. He was concerned and attentive throughout the procedure. Office staff and hygienists were very nice as well. Very clear about cost and insurance coverage.
