Super grateful I followed the reviews and gave this place a shot. Totally totally recommend it."

"I’ve always had a fear of the dentist my entire life and I’ve never really had a great experience until I meet Dr Estrada he was simply great. Made me feel super comfortable and completed the process with minimal to no pain at all. I will definitely be going back to work on the rest of my teeth."
"So many great things to say. The most important being the patience and kindness of the dental hygienist. It’s difficult to find someone who loves what they do and accepts Medicaid. The dental hygienist gave me a thorough clean. One of the best cleanings I’ve ever had. Being polite and honestly giving folks the care they need regardless of their insurance. It genuinely is such a breath of fresh air. Due to the pandemic and dentist not being open up until recently; I have multiple cavities that they’ll be filling. If you’re trying to find a great place for dental hygiene, this is IT! Thank you to the receptionist as well, who was polite and very accommodating and understanding. Thanks to everyone else as well! There was someone here who had great makeup whom name I forgot. All in all; Everyone here makes a great team and I do hope they keep up the great work!"
"My first visit at East Village Dental Center was impressive- the receptionist was professional and patient in answering my concerns and questions.I was taken to area to have x-ray taken -everything looked clean and the rooms were lighten.The hygienists explained the procedure and reassured me -If I feel any pain all I had to do was raise my hand --I never raised my hand.MY FIRST WONDERFUL EXPRESS WITH A HYGIENIST.My teeth clean .She explained and instructed me how to properly clean and floss.DR Estrada explained everything in non-hurry way- He actually sat and talked with me regarding his dental plan.Dentists I have previously gone to are completing their sentence as they are walking out the room I only wish that I had gone here first and today I would have more teeth in my mouth.As Dr Easrada said "We are going to do our very best to keep what teeth you have.Thank you Magaly Gonzalez for recommending Dr Estrada."
"So happy I found this dentist - always a wonderful, professional experience from check in to check out. Every cost was explained thoroughly by the front desk staff meaning no surprises, which I appreciate! All of the dental hygienists are wonderful, and Dr. Bhatt is amazing! Probably the best dentist I’ve ever had (no I’m not getting paid to write this review ha) If you’re in the area (even if you’re not) I would recommend."
"I have had trouble finding a dentist that takes my insurance and I feel gives quality care. I had a really thorough teeth cleaning where I feel I was for the first time really walked through the correct way to brush and floss. I also had three fillings which they were able to fill in one visit. The front desk staff where really helpful in pricing and reminders."
"I came in with a dental emergency and they were able to help me, The dentist and staff are amazing!! I can’t thanks them enough. Will definitely be back and recommend this place to my friends and family."
"Everyone, the women at reception, the X-ray technician, hygienist and dr Shah we’re extremely nice, friendly, welcoming and patient with me … they took me right away, wow no wait at a dr office… I told dr Shah about my health issues and she was very understanding and gentle, had to have been the most painless dentist appointment I’ve ever experienced! I usually dread going to the dentist now I’m actually looking forward to going back and finishing up things…"
"The Dental Hygienist June was not only cordial and friendly but had fully educated me on how I need to brush and floss and why it’s important I do it a certain way. I briefly met the Dentist, Dr. Bark (spell) and she too was very cordial and informative about the forecasting of my dental plans for my future visits. I was very happy with my entire experience there—the girl up front was very nice to me too, I just didn’t get her name."
"My experience was amazing! At East village Dental. The clerks , were very informative from day one., They took the initiative, contacted my insurance, then contacted me , the procedure began . My appointments were always on time with my Doctor. My best experience was with on time appointments, I always got messages reminding me of my appointments. The job on my teeth is outstanding. Am so happy so happy I chose East village Dental . Thank you Staff and faculty. You are the best."
"Great dental experience. Went here for my first x-ray/cleaning since having recently moved to NYC and was treated very nicely by all the staff. Would recommend for anyone looking for a new dentist office."
"My first visit of course I was nervous do to my bad experience at the other place I went to this dentist the place is so clean and they make sure they keep their patients social distancing and also took your temperature and the dentist was very attentive and explained to me about my visit and what I need to do very gentle hands I thank you for making me feel comfortable and the receptionist where very nice and friendly and answer my questions thanks girls."
"I’m usually very nervous at the dentist. But Dr. Kaufman and his dental assistant put me at ease and the procedure went smoothly. I recommend them to anybody who needs professional, caring and comfortable dental service."
"Many of us have trepidation when visiting the dentist. However my experience at East Villiage Dental Center was pleasant. The complete staff, receptionist, dental assistants and Dr were courteous, comforting, and professional. Not only was the Dr on time for his first early morning appointment, his clear concise explanation of the work going forward was helpful in working with my insurance coverage. Dare I say I "enjoyed" my visit."
"The hygienist is fantastic and super informative while she is working. The dentist gives options and is honest about the work that has to be done and what can be put off for a while. The front desk staff will find out how much insurance covers for each procedure immediately after your visit which is also very helpful. There are no wait times and they are very organized for a quick and efficient visit."
"Best experience I had with a dentist. I had multiple issues because my previous dentist didn’t do the work in a timely manner. Dr. Shah seen me right away and assessed that my tooth has to come out because it was an old root canal that got infected. Dr. Kaufman squeezed me in that same day to evaluate and offered to extract same day. He explained everything in detail. He made sure I was as comfortable as possible and made me aware of the procedure step by step as he was doing it. So I knew what I was feeling and why. I didn’t feel a thing actually. The front desk staff was also very friendly and detailed when explaining the benefits and what would be covered by my insurance. She gave me options and ways to do the work affordably. All around great experience. They disinfected all surfaces and took proper steps to ensure a clean environment. Everyone answered all questions asked. They were all knowledgeable."
"Everyone from the front desk, office manager, hygienist and the dentist are on point Professionals who work with the client to get the best care. I highly recommend this dentistry office for the entire East Village / Lower East Side!"
"The medical receptionists are very friendly and knowledgeable. They will go out their way to accommodate you on every aspect of your dental journey from reaching out to your insurance company for authorization, connecting you with the appropriate specialist, and scheduling appointments that coincide with your needs. Dr. Alyssa Jackson has excellent bedside manner and will provide you with a plan as well as detailed information on your Xray results. She is very talented and take pride in her work. The process has been painless."
"First visit and I am beyond satisfied with the treatment I received. My cleaning was thorough yet gentle and the hygienist explained everything every step of the way.. Dr Jackson was also very informative on my diagnosis and future treatment. The staff on the whole was wonderful! A+++"
"Even though this was my 1st appt. I'm not gonna lie. 1st. I was seen right on time, there was no waiting an hour or more. It seems like the staff is professional and expedient. Equipment was up to date, both rooms I was in were clean. The doctor's exam was detailed. Overall they're the most professional dental clinic I've been to anywhere."
"“On March 5, 2021, I visited Dr. Tushar Patel for a periodontal scaling and crown replacement. Dr. Patel was extremely professional and accommodating although I was late to my dental appointment. I recommend him without hesitation.”"
"Called to book an appointment which was incredibly easy and done within 5 minutes. Frequent text reminders about the appointment were greatly appreciated. They even texted about earlier appointment openings! All covid protocols were upheld to ensure optimal patient safety. Checking in and seeing the tech and hygienist took <10 minutes. The hygienist provided a thorough cleaning and education concerning ways to improve my dentition. The star of the show was Dr. Tushar Patel. Dr. Patel was attentive and amicable throughout the entire experience. He provided a comprehensive breakdown of my imaging and dental health that was easy to understand. He took time to listen to my gripes as a patient and offered options that were accommodating of my situation. The most important aspect was that he displayed effective communication to be respectful of both of my time. This was one of the best patient interactions I have been a part of and I will be returning to him and recommending him to all my friends!"
"I hadn't been able to get to a dentist for a while and I knew I needed to have some work done so I was anxious. Dr. Jackson really put me at ease explaining my situation with patience and good humor. The entire staff has been both thorough and incredibly nice. I couldn't have asked for better treatment. As I have continued this process with Dr. Kaufman I've been extremely happy with the professional and courteous care I've received. Dr. Kaufman and his team have really gone the extra mile to make the procedures as stress and pain free as possible. I truly appreciate the care I've received from the entire staff!!"
"Always very quick, kind, and efficient! Dr. Kaufman is incredible, he helped me with an emergency extraction of my wisdom teeth and it went very quickly and smoothly! He explained everything very well and made the procedure as fast and comfortable as possible."
"Front desk offers compassionate kind friendly patient care. Dealing with insurance companies is challenging and uncomfortable. The staff made me feel confident. Hygienist is amazing. Dentist rock! I highly recommend East Village Dental Center🤗👏"
"It was my first time visiting this clinic and I appreciate how everyone was so thorough with the information and patient with my questions and concerns. Thank you for making this an enjoyable experience"
"To start this off, I had some issues with my last dentist so I went on a limb and picked this dentist (East Village Dental Center) and I can honestly say for my first time going today that everything was great from the receptionist staff to just overall the whole dental treatment to myself. I will definitely be recommending this place to everyone that I know. I wish all dentist offices would take some notes from this place on what it is to provide great services. Thanks for making my visit a great one East Village Dental Center!"
"This is the BEST dentist I have ever been to! They really work with you to help you take care of your mouth, and they go above and beyond to make you happy! From the receptionists to the dentists, they are amazing!!"
"I had the most awesome cleaning here, I went home smiling instead of in pain. Had full x-rays The dentist and the assistant were very informative answered questions they were the sweetest. I brought my son here as well and he had a great experience Had some baby teeth extracted that we thought were adult teeth. And right beneath were the adult teeth growing. I will be returning"
"I like this place. Not crazy expensive like my last dentist, and they are so nice and professional. I had a feeling my previous dentist was over diagnosing/treating and I came here for a second opinion and have stuck with them ever since!"
"TO ALL SEEKING A GOOD DENTAL CLINIC: a friend recommended this clinic to me and I was seen by Dr. Benjamin Estrada who listened carefully to how I wanted my teeth and after checking my x-rays, laid out a plan to achieve my goals. I was very satisfied and will continue with Dr. Estrada. His courteous assistant Melanie was very accommodating. The ladies at the front desk, Gina, Priscilla, and Dominique were professional, instructive and a wonderful trio of terrific Front Desk personnel!"
"Like most people, I don’t like to go to the dentist but when I do, . I would highly recommend EVD. Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Patel provide excellent care. and I never feel any pain when they’re working on me. The only complaint I have is that they are not always on time with scheduled appointments and there can be a wait so that’s why only 4 Stars. Other than that, it’s clean and they accept my insurance 🤩"
"Very good experience so far. I found the doctor knowledgeable and able to communicate well, and the office staff was very helpful.--- adding to this review after going to this dentist for over a year now, I continue to get treatments I trust here. I have had work done by both Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Hausserman, and both have been very good and would be trusted again. Also, oddly, very little pain so far from procedures here. They seem to be pretty good at minimizing discomfort here."
"Very happy and satisfied the facility is very clean and warm welcoming staff. Dr. Jackson is amazing, very understanding and compassionate. I highly recommend East Village Dental The girls at the front desk are very kind and professional. Most importantly they value their patients and make accommodations as needed."

"I am really happy I found this office. Everyone was really kind as well as professional. Dr. Jackson explained everything clearly and was thorough. She has a very calm demeanor which I really appreciated given how nervous I can be with dental work. The staff was helpful and I seen on time. Really my best experience with a dental office!"
"As dentist goes they are very polite comforting and professional as possible. I hate going to the dentist but they are a necessary part of your well being. So i give then 5 stars. Very clean and comforting"
"The environment was clean and spacious, the experience was warm and friendly and the dentist, as well as, the assistant were both thorough (x-ray, consult) from beginning to end. Thank you for the experience till the next needed visit."
"Dr Hausserman is amazing, he found a deep rooted cavity that no other dentist found in the past 3 years! The hygienist did an amazing job ad gave me a very deep cleaning and left no plaque under my gums. I hadn't had this good of a cleaning in 6 years. Dr Hausserman is the only Dentist at East Village Dental Center who accepts marketplace insurance coverage. Dr Hausserman, next time you're in Morocco do not hesitate to email me! It will be my pleasure to show you around!"
"Dr. Hausserman was great! I have had nothing but bad experiences with dentist in the past and grew anxious just thinking of having to visit a dentist again. He was clear about everything he was doing and made me feel super comfortable. I felt no pain and he was quick and efficient. The office staff were also courteous. I would definitely recommend this dentist."
"Receptionists are wonderful and caring and willing to help. Dr.Alicia J was so attentive and calming, especially after my experiences with other Dental professionals who just seemed disconnected. Alicia really explained to me step by step the state of my teeth and journey toward better oral care. Very nice experience, highly recommended for anyone who has had bad experiences in the past and needs a more professional, knowledgeable and comforting approach to your care. I will also note that they followed covid guidelines. Everyone wore a mask, hand sanitizing stations were provided and whilst in the waiting area all were seated six feet apart. Thank you for a good experience and reintroduction into a pretty intimidating aspect of my health."
"Dr. Jackson was the ABSOLUTE best dentist I have visited. I explained that I had a very traumatic experience when I was younger which has lead to anxiety when having to go to the dentist for even the simplest reason, such as a cleaning. She then went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Her staff was equally friendly and professional. Highly recommend!"
"My experience was kindness, wonderful team works I thank the Doctor who took care of me . The nurses are great .I would speak to anyone about my experience with E.V.D.C . Thank you so much. good luck on your new opening ."
"Dr. Hausserman and his staff as always are the best! My daughter is nervous and filled with anxiety when going to the dentist but Dr. Hausserman makes her feel at ease. Thank you Dr. Hausserman for making her visit comfortable and relaxed."
"I look for honesty feed back . Felt comfortable with the staff and surgeon. Hoping my insurance would be taken but was not . Looked for other options to get my teeth done other payment plans. Want my smile back. It's a process but looking forward to feeling better at the end.very plasent Tuesday staff is very friendly. DDS,MS Kaufman is very understanding to details he makes you feel at ease before proceeding with your dental issues. Angel and Madeline office staff are very friendly and they also explains your situation regarding your teeths insurance what is next etc. So far so good. A+ to everyone at East Village Dental Center. I just wish they can retake my insurance instead of finding other means of paying back for your care. I felt very comfortable today on my way to my visit. situation was explained clearly what was to be done. Was done. Everyone there very helpful at East Village Dental. Always sends reminder to your cell phone to make sure u don't forget your appointment and follow up with you. A caring staff who looks out for your best interest when it comes to dental hygiene."
"Everyone is very polite and patient. It was just my second visit, first was for a cleaning which they didn't rush through. My teeth felt and looked cleaner. My second required some work, an onlay and a cavity, both were handle nicely by Dr. Kaufman. Onlay was made onsite which was convenient seeing that I hate going to the dentist and I did not require a follow-up visit. 😁"
"This was my first visit to see Dr. M. Hausserman. I was having pain, and Dr. Hausserman performed above my expectations. The office seems casual, but he was thorough and gave me a few options to choose from. I am glad I found this dentist and will be back. My 2nd review for my 2nd visit. I did come back and am pleased with the service Dr. Haussetman provided."
"My appt was for 3:15. However I called in to find out if there was a cancellation ? so I can come in. I was told to come now, it was like 8:50. I got there, was greeted and was given a form to fill out. Minutes after when I finished n handed it in; I was called in. On my first visit to a new dental office, I would only get xrays done. This visit I not only got the xray done but also the cleaning. N even the cleaning felt more thorough. Thank you!"
"The receptionists were very helpful with appointments and rescheduling. The dental hygienist was great: she was careful to be gentle and easy during cleaning. She advised me on a few things without sounding like she was scolding me, so that was nice. The dentist and the dentist assistant were both quick and easy on me. So, I am really happy with the visit because of the staff."
"I've been coming to this dentist office for several years now and the staff is warm and lovely and the dentist is great and they provide you with many health tips on keeping your pearly whites strong and healthy!"
"Staff was friendly and professional. Dentist was real informative of every step she was doing during my cleaning and gave me great tips and recommendations to keep my teeth healthy. Happy that I came here and you will be too"
"An amazing experience. I needed a wisdom extraction, and Dr. Kaufman, did it right away. The extraction was less than 3 minutes. I can already feel the difference. No more headaches or pain. Thank you for the after care advice Dr. Kaufman! See you next week for my checkup."
"I have been a patient of this practice for many years. I have always been satisfied with their services, but today I especially want to thank its front desk team, including Madelyn, who was extremely helpful to me. I needed an urgent appointment with the dentist and was going to be in the city only for a day between travels. Even though there were no available appointments, Madelyn made a point to give me a call in the case of last minute openings. And I got the appointment I needed. She has been great communicating over emails as well (when I could not call directly from overseas). I can only imagine how much work Madelyn and her team do on a daily basis, so I am very grateful for such an amazing care on their part."
"I typically DREAD dentist appointments, but Dr. Komal Suri and the rest of the staff at East Village Dental Center were absolutely wonderful and I am so glad to have found this place. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Dr. Suri and the dental hygienist assisting her were both super friendly and have some of the best bedside manner I have ever seen. They were very gentle and did not cause me any pain even though my teeth can be quite sensitive. They also got the checkup/cleaning fairly quickly too, which was an added bonus. The staff was friendly and helpful and welcoming to me as a first time patient there. I waited no more than 5 minutes for my appointment after filling out the new patient forms, and once my appointment was over, the front desk staff made scheduling my next checkup for six months from now a breeze. To sum up, this was by far the most painless experience I've ever had at a dentist's office and I highly recommend this place and Dr. Suri in particular."
