Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Amanda R. from The Bronx, The Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


I was referred Benjamin by a colleague and I am so grateful to find him as I throughly recommend his dental surgery. I had a wisdom tooth problem and required an emergency appointment so called early the next morning, The practice manager (Grace) responded to me and found me an almost immediate appointment whilst understanding the pain I was in. – what a gem. Benjamin was kind, professional and caring and talked me through my options. He continually explained the procedures, what he was going to do next, and all of the technical aspects. He was fast, efficient and didn’t waste a moment of my time trying to garner more dental work – he is 100% legitimate and an example to the dental profession in NYC. Benjamin has an amazing personality, brings his whole self to work and his team are courteous, efficient and empathetic. This is my dental surgery from now on!

Benjamin was the *only* dentist I’ve ever had that took the time to make me feel comfortable in the chair and prepared to make decisions about my teeth. He was informative, gentle and thorough. I’ve already sent 7 friends there and if you’re in NYC, you should go yourself.

Dr. Medina is truly the BEST DENTIST EVER! He is smart, funny, painless, patient and easy going. If you have any dental fears whatsoever, he will help you conquer them. He managed to talk me into having a wisdom tooth removed without going under (a first for me!) and even the massive novacaine needle and shot didn’t hurt! I don’t know how he does it, but this dentist is one of a kind.

I have been a patient of Dr. Medina for over 5 years now. He is extremely thorough with his cleanings and very meticulous with his work. I especially recommend him for cosmetic dentistry because he has done such an amazing job with me. I would give him 7 stars if I could.

Jamie F. from London, United Kingdom (Source: Yelp)


I was visiting NYC as a tourist and had extreme wisdom tooth pain. I called and was able to get an appointment promptly. When I arrived I was greeted by a professional, kind and courteous Dr. Medina and staff. He explained everything to me and made me feel less anxious with his professional and bubbly demeanour. The extraction process was over shortly, his attention to detail and calm verbal engagement with me was a huge relief from the excruciating pain. It was hands down the best dental service I have experienced and this has compelled me to hold Dr. Medina in the highest of regards. I will be recommending him to my friends even here in England

Jack B. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Medina for Botox injections.  It was my first experience with this type of procedure and now I’m hooked!  Dr. Medina explained exactly what I was to expect (before and after the procedure) and took measures to make my experience as painless and smooth as possible.  I would highly recommend him for this type of procedure.  I will definitely be going back!

Maria J. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I really hate going to the dentist. The sounds, the dry lips, the sore jaw, potential pain… I hate it all! Dr. Medina really puts my mind at ease. He works quickly and gently and always makes sure I’m comfortable. He is extremely kind and personable, cracking jokes and telling me stories but keep me distracted and preoccupied. Dr. Medina also meticulous and conservative, suggesting least invasive procedures but effective options unless it is absolutely necessary. Dr. Medina doesn’t just clean your teeth or fill your cavities, he makes them look like they are a part of your teeth so no one will ever know that you had work done on them. I’ve been seeing Dr. Medina since 2015 but when he moved his office further uptown last year (even further away from me), I made the mistake of going to a new dentist closer to me. As soon as I stepped into that new office, I knew I’d be going back to Dr. Medina even if it is a trek. I’m telling you, he’s the best! As long as I am in the city, I know I won’t be going to any other dentist. I should also note, everyone that works in his office is the sweetest as well!

Joe L. from Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany (Source: Yelp)


I chose Dr Medina because he took my new dental insurance.  I am a touring musician and have been traveling constantly for at least 50% of the last 16 years and I have been to many hospitals, Drs and Dentists around the globe.  I feel very blessed to have found Dr Medina and to have him in my life now.  His bedside manner is unparalleled and its just an absolute pleasure hanging with him.  I really feel like i’m going to hang out with one of my friends who just happens to be an amazing dentist.  in the short time I’ve been with him he has removed all 4 of my wisdom teeth and we are in the middle of replacing my old metal fillings and I literally could cry every time he finishes working on me and I see what he’s done in the mirror.  he is fulfilling a life long dream of mine to have a nicer smile and I’m confident that I couldn’t feel like i was in better hands anywhere else. HIGHLY RECOMENDED! WOOHOO!  TEETH!

I am totally neurotic – and have an awful time getting numb – but he is always patient and makes sure he gives me enough to keep me comfortable. His hours are when the real world can get to the dentist- not 10-5 like many…..which I appreciate since I have a lot of work to do. Great personality and sense of humor- which is rare with a dentist!

Michael P. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Medina and his staff make going to the dentist’s office actually fun!  He, himself, is a really good guy – who cares and is great at making his patients feel comfortable.   He’s actually really funny, too.  I always enjoy my visits t his office.  Highly recommend. 🙂

Denise D M. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to see Dr Medina since 2007. I’ve had a handful of old fillings replaced, and more cleanings than I can count. When I first visited, I dreaded going to the dentist. But the doctor was very patient, friendly and fast! He explained every procedure and even went above and beyond by applying a topical anesthetic to help with my gum sensitivity. He makes going to the dentist easy and painless. I’ve recommended him to friends and co-workers who are still his patients today. And even though I moved from NY to Florida in 2013, I STILL see Dr Medina once a year (even though it really should be twice). He’s worth it!

John L. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Medina is a great dentist. I went in with a lot of questions and just wanted a consultation about where I should go with my teeth. I had seen the same dentist for 17 years and was worried about changing. Dr. Medina took his time with me and even asked me several times if I had any more questions. He showed me photos, gave me ideas and made me feel very relaxed. I would highly recommend Dr. Medina. The office is clean and professional looking. The staff are very professional and friendly.

Penelope H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I live in San Francisco and I travel to New York for Botox injections from Dr. Medina. I wouldn’t go to anyone else. My first experience with Botox was with Dr. Medina and I was nervous but he put me right at ease. He explained the whole process, was extremely professional and did a fantastic (and painless) job! His entire staff are very friendly and he always takes me in right on time. Going to Dr. Medina is definitely well worth the trip across the country – that’s how good he is!

Bruce G. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


As I usually do when I moved to new town, I postponed finding a dentist for several years.  Looking for a dentist is such a crap shoot.  I’ve been seeing Dr. Medina for about eight months now and I’ve found him to be friendly and professional.  And I got a gold crown for a broken molar!

I was previously a patient at a large dental group and became frustrated with the impersonal level of service. I was referred to Dr. Medina by a friend who has been a longtime patient. I am very pleased with the level of service and professionalism demonstrated by Dr. Medina’s dental practice. Dr. Medina performs all services and procedures, cleanings, fillings etc. He is very attentive and accessible, even taking me in his office on a Saturday for pain I was experiencing from a gum-related issue. I also recently began an Invisalign treatment with Dr. Medina to deal with crowded teeth and an overbite. I put off getting conventional braces for years but decided to proceed with Invisalign with Dr. Medina based on the trust and confidence I’ve developed in his skill and competence; he really cares about his patients’ well-being!

Ezra-Shimon R. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I am 26 years old, I have seen a dozen medical professionals in the past year alone, and this is my first ever review.  Dr. Medina is my favorite medical professional I’ve ever seen.  He makes going to the dentist fun.  He distracts you from any pain or discomfort with his charismatic personality.  He always has appointments available and he is always on time.

Rafi S. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Had my first cleaning with Dr. Medina yesterday, I think he’s fantastic. It was late in the day and I think I was his last patient but he was friendly, energetic, and most importantly he did an excellent job. He seems incredibly knowledgeable and gives so much personal attention, more than any other dentist I’ve ever been to. 10/10 would recommend 😀

From the moment I walked in I felt so welcomed. Doctor Medina made me feel so comfortable and honestly I never felt so good in a dentals office . He has great personality and he knows what he is doing. He makes sure you feel good and that you understand what needs to be done before he starts doing anything. He cares about his patients and makes sure you feel no type of pain whatsoever. Best dental experience I ever had!

Tatyana D. from Miami Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


First great dental experience in NYC 🙂 Office staff are very professional, i barely waited 5 minutes to be called in. Dr. Medina was funny, educating and professional. Clean and modern machinery. I’m coming back for some work in two weeks and im actually not stressing out about it. People who write bad reviews about this place have not been to Hanson Dental in dtown BK. Go see that place and you gonna think Medina’s office is a five star resort.

Wendy G. from Eden, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Medina is the BEST dentist anyone can have!! I used to fear my dental visits before I met Dr. Medina. I referred my husband (who also avoided dentists like the plague) to Dr. Medina and he has transformed his smile with Invisalign. He went from being someone who barely smiled to someone who is now very confident and can’t stop smiling. If you’re looking for a great and skilled dentist, Stop searching- you just found him.

Odin M. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been visiting Doctor Medina for 10 years and have been very satisfied with the quality of service. In addition to regular check-ups, Doctor Medina performed cosmetic procedures with excellent results. He shows a sincere interest in my health and comfort and takes time to make sure I understand each procedure. Even uncomfortable procedures like a root canal or extractions are done with an experienced hand and with what I consider to be minimal discomfort. The staff is kind and professional and he’s in the office on Saturdays, which fits my schedule nicely. I have recommended Doctor Medina to friends and family whether or not they are looking for a new dentist.

Antonia L. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I never had a more attentive, knowledgeable, and pain free(!) dentist than Dr. Medina. I started seeing him a few years ago and never looked back. My recent visit during the pandemic was safe and efficient, with all health recommendations observed by the doctor and staff. Highly recommended!

Sophie W. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Medina is the best!  I’ve been seeing him routinely for a while now – twice yearly for a checkup and cleaning – and I just had some cosmetic composite bonding work replaced, which I am SO happy with.  He is super patient, gentle, and always makes you feel relaxed as he chats and tells you stories throughout!  And I haven’t had a late appointment yet!  I visited a couple of times throughout Covid and the protocols were good – social distancing, mask wearing, hand sanitizing etc.  Everything you would expect was in place.  Grace who works at the front desk is also super nice and very helpful!  I absolutely recommend Dr Medina.

Dr. Medina has been my dentist for 6 years and I have to say he’s one of the best! From the first day I stepped in his office he made me feel so comfortable and well cared for. His demeanor as well as the staffs is always warm and pleasant. I’ve referred quite a few people to Dr. Medina and they all had great experiences as well. He has a gentle and steady hand when you’re in his chair. He never makes you feel rushed however you aren’t in his offices forever. Unlike some offices you’re never made to wait for long after your appt time. I just can’t say enough good things about him. If you live in the the five boroughs or surrounding areas and need a good dentist, Dr. Medina is your man.

I live in San Francisco and I actually fly to New York to get Botox injections from Dr. Medina. He is absolutely the best! The very first time I got Botox was with Dr. Medina and I was very nervous. He calmed me down right away by explaining everything. He was patient, professional and painless. And the results are amazing! His office staff and assistants are also extremely professional as well as very friendly. He also always takes me right on time. Dr. Medina is so good at what he does that he is worth the trip across the country – if you live in New York you are so lucky because he is right there!

Yiji S. from Newburgh, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Medina is the reason why I stopped searching for a dentist. He is such a kind individual who really cares about his patients. He has you best interests in mind 100% and is not out to exploit you. He makes the whole trip to the dentist pleasant and pain free. If you are looking for a dentist in the city, HE IS THE ONE TO GO TO. I tried 3 other dentists in the area and there is no one comparable to him. The office itself is very clean and welcoming.

RJ M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Medina is an absolute delight. He has exceptional chairside manners, is highly efficient, effective and him and his team (Maria & Orlando) treat me warmly, kindly and professionally. I almost forget that he’s doing dental work. He made an accurate assessment of the work he had to do with some of my dental concerns, and he did it well. My grandfather was my dentist for most of my childhood and I would slack occasionally. Now that I have good coverage and an outstanding dentist with a great team, I’m not too frightened anymore. Just don’t all book at once, I’d still like my appointments.

Jennifer K. from Woodside, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Medina was super nice and didn’t make me feel guilty that I hadn’t been to the dentist in six years, and was reassuring when I told him how terrified I was to experience any sort of pain whatsoever.  Even though I was clearly being annoying by asking him a million questions every time he went to do anything in my mouth, he answered them, and responded whenever I told him something hurt or was uncomfortable.  My treatment was great and I know I’m not the easiest patient, so I am very happy.

Boris F. from Missoula, MT (Source: Google)


Dr. Medina is amazing. That he’s incredible at what he does is only part of it. (But a huge part — I was abroad for a while and saw a dentist there. Her words: “Whoever works on your teeth knows what he’s doing.”) So friendly, so professional, so efficient, so attentive. (All the same goes for his staff.) You never have to wait, you’re treated like a friend, and the work is top-notch. He’ll be straight with you about what’s a priority and what can wait; he’ll be flexible about payment; he’ll talk to you like a human being, and take the time to explain what’s what in words a non-specialist can understand. I think of Dr. Medina as a gift from the cosmos after God only knows how many sub-par operators, both in terms of skill and bedside manner. He’s the first doctor I’ve had in the city (and I’ve lived here for over a decade) who’s left me with a kind of pride of affiliation, a sense of belonging, when I say “my ________.” In brief, he rocks.

Michael P. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Medina is a really great dentist. He has a very warm personality and put me at ease as soon as I sat down in his chair. He was extremely attentive throughout the appointment — resolving my questions and concerns, while also offering a good deal of extra information particular to my situation. In the past, I’ve felt like dentists were trying to upsell me on things like unnecessary fillings. With Dr. Medina, it was the exact opposite. He discussed exactly what was covered by my plan, didn’t try to tack on anything additional, and even advised against an expensive jaw surgery another dentist had suggested. In summary Dr Medina is warm, conversational, and trustworthy. I will definitely go back to him for my next cleaning.
