Hello!
I'm posting for a friend who is having trouble finding a clean, modern dentist in Brooklyn or Manhattan. She is looking for an office that uses digital technology/XRAYs and is having no luck looking online. Can someone please recommend a dentist they've used themselves and had good experiences with?

Thanks!

She should try Exchange Dental Group in downtown Manhattan. They're wonderful, and very, very gentle if you're not a good x-ray taker and/or terrified of the dentist.

I used to go to Dr. Austin in manhattan and I loved her! She is so nice and thorough, and doesn't try to push any treatments on you that you don't need. You can even pick from a book of movies or music videos to watch while you sit in the chair.

I was so bummed when I got a new job in NJ and my insurance won't cover her. Took me forever to find just as good a dentist in NJ!

Due to the "urgently needed" in the title I'm sure your friend has already found and visited a dentist, but in case anyone else is looking for a rec - I go to Norman Dental Center (98 Norman Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222 718-389-6666) in Greenpoint and they've been great! Nice office, modern and clean, good services offered and they're all super friendly. I see Dr. Bayer who is really gentle and incredibly nice, and my husband sees another dentist there - I don't remember her name, but he is VERY squeamish when it comes to the dentist and he loves her. I didn't start using them until I had dental insurance so I can't speak to the prices, but they've never ever tried to push something unnecessary on me like some other places have in the past. Hope your friend's mouth is doing ok!

Oh hey, I used to go to Dr. Bayer too when I lived in Greenpoint, and will second that he is super-nice.

When I needed dental treatment on a visit to NYC I saw the lovely Dr. Isaac Datikashvili, in the Union Square area.
(It was over the xmas period - he fitted me in quickly as an emergency and made himself available if I needed him during the holidays.)
