PATIENT REVIEWS

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

★★★★★

I was highly recommended Dr. Lee from a good friend who has been going to see him for many years. I had been searching for an experienced periodontist for my dad and I am so glad my friend made that introduction! No words can express how grateful we are for what Dr. Lee has done to transform my dad’s life. Prior to meeting Dr. Lee, my dear father had a couple of partial bridges that were coming off due to bone loss which made it very hard for him to eat and to speak properly. He was always self conscious about his teeth and I could see how it was affecting him. But after meeting Dr. Lee through the course of 12 months, he gave my dad a full mouth rehabilitation. If you don’t know what that is, he pretty much replaced almost all my dad’s teeth with a combination of implants and crowns! It’s quite unbelievable to see the transformation in my dad. To this day, he cannot stop bragging about how he has real teeth. Thank you so much, Dr. Lee! If you are looking for a skilled specialist who is also very comforting and sympathetic to your needs, go see Dr. Lee. He has very calming demeanor and really cares about his patients (always checking on my dad!) To top it off, my dad and I were always greeted by such a friendly staff! It is so nice to visit a dental office (quite modern in fact) with positive vibes where everyone is happy and helpful!

I can only say great things about Delaire Dental. The environment is very clean.Front end is warm and inviting. Hygienist are great. Dr Lee is amazing. I had oral surgery preformed in office by Dr. Lee. Dr.Lee was very professional and accommodating. He would take quick breaks when things were to intense for me. I would definitely recommend this practice for your dental needs.

★★★★★

Everyone here is so friendly, and it’s always a positive experience. I can get anxious about dental exams but the technician is always patient and thorough, and it’s a good experience overall. And the dentist always has time to explain things and chat through any concerns, which I appreciate.

Emily K. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have never had a better dental exam or experience overall. The staff was lovely and very helpful (I forgot my insurance card and the receptionist was adroit at finding a workaround). The space is beautiful and more technologically advanced than any doctor office I’ve ever seen. Dr. Lee has a wonderful “bedside manner” and is clearly expert at his craft. We chatted about a variety of dental topics and then I had the most thorough cleaning I’ve ever experienced. Best part? The goody bag as a parting gift! Thanks Dr. Lee – see you again soon!!

★★★★★

Front desk staff is friendly and accommodating. Hygienists are friendly and skilled. Doctors are knowledgeable, speedy and gentle. Best Novocaine injection I have ever received – didn’t even know it was happening. And minimal post visit discomfort after my recent cavity filling appointment.

Mr. Y. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

The most comfortable a dental visit could be. I went to visit Dr. Lee for a regular check-up. I found the office to be very clean. Dr. Lee is very attentive and focused on providing his patients with a comfortable experience. He took the time to explain to me what he was looking for on my teeth x-rays so that I understood whether any additional work needed to be done. I would highly recommend Delaire Dental.

Abraxas L. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

As most people, I really don’t enjoy going to the dentist’s office. It’s probably this reason that I found myself with a broken tooth and not knowing what to do. My coworker actually recommended I see Dr.Lee and after waiting as long as I could, gave in and made an appointment. I had a certain stereotype of what the experience was going to be like and was dreading the visit. But from the moment I walked into the office, I felt more comfortable. I was seen immediately with little wait, paperwork and xrays were done very efficiently. And Dr.Lee was very down to earth, explained things in a very simple way even though I realized how involved this treatment was going to be. Anyway, long story short…I had to have the tooth extracted, have an implant done, and I just got my crown cemented this week. And even though the whole process took some time, I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience! After all this, I’m really going to try to keep my routine visits….maybe.

Dr. Lee is terrific! I have been going to Delaire Dental for the past four years and started looking forward to dental care after switching to Delaire Dental. Not only am I in good care, Dr. Lee and staff are friendly and makes you feel at home. Dr. Lee is a thorough, precise, patient and exceedingly skilled doctor who makes you feel at ease from the start. Every step of the way of my filling/ceramic inlay, he explains your options, his recommendation, what he wants to do, how and why he wants to do it. When you make a decision to proceed, you feel that you made an informed decision that is going to benefit you in the end. I highly recommend this practice.

I come for the dental implant. It goes exactly what Dr. Lee describes–not too much bleeding and not too much pain. Dr. Lee knows exactly what he’s talking about. It won’t be the case without the vast clinical experience Dr. Lee has. Not to mention his extraordinary skill level. The front office staff is very friendly and courteous. Highly recommend.

★★★★★

What an amazing practice! Dr. Lee saved my mouth- well my sanity. I have been a patient since 2014, and I knew they were always helpful, knowledgeable, with my insurance and my treatments. But this time, they saved me during the most dangerous time of NYC. COVID-19 has hit, NYC is told to shut down, NOTHING is open,and I get tremendous sharp pains in my mouth. This pain would not stop hurting! No pain medication helped. I was in tears. Called DELARE DENTAL, left a message, and Ania called me right back. Dr. Lee was able see me the next day and took care of my infection. I tell you, I NEVER want to feel this pain in my life ever again! Today, I went back for a follow up and was told all is healing very well. I left there with no pain, and my treatment plan. Ania took the time and explained what the treatment entailed. Thank you Dr. Lee and DELAIRE DENTAL staff. I’ll see you guys for my next cleaning!

Front Desk: Medical Office Assistants are courteous, profesional, knowledgeable and super “sweet”. Dr. Michael Lee: is the best dentist I have ever met. I work in medical field and I can tell that he has knowledge, right approach for each patient and individualized treatment, honest, polite and most importantly bedside manners and profesional!

★★★★★

I needed implants and have pretty severe dental phobia, so I was really apprehensive about beginning treatment. I spent a long time researching dentists in NYC and finally decided that Delaire Dental was the best choice. Boy was I right, Dr. Lee is amazing as is Ania, Jessica, and everyone else at Delaire Dental. I’ve been to many dental offices in my lifetime and this one is the best! No more phobia!

Wendy C. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)

I first came to Delaire Dental to see Dr. Lee for the invisalign treatment. Since then, I’ve also had tooth extraction, cleaning, and fillings done. Dr. Lee is always very meticulous, gentle, and patient. I didn’t have to fear going to the dentist anymore since I found Delaire! Invisalign – The treatment has been very pleasant and a lot easier than I had anticipated. Dr. Lee monitors the progress carefully and always takes time to listen to my questions and offers insightful, helpful advice. I can’t wait to see the finished result as it is already making a huge difference on my smile! The practice is contemporary with the state of the art equipments, very clean and relaxing. Dr. Lee’s patient room has windows that look out to the Empire State Building, a TV, and a massage chair – nice amenities are such a bonus. I never had to wait when I arrive at my appointment. I appreciate that as they respect patients’ time and have a very structured scheduling & reminder system. The staffs are super friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell they treat each other like family. I always look forward to seeing Ania, Jess, and Eva. I highly recommend Delaire Dental as I’ve only had more than pleasant experiences here throughout the years, plus it being at this iconic location makes you feel like a true New Yorker! (And we want nothing but the best!)

★★★★★

Who actually loves their dentist? I mean, sure it’s a necessity but, love? I am now one of those people. I originally started going to Delaire Dental due to their proximity to ktown (YUM) and Dr. Lee’s impressive pedigree – a very well trained and educated dentist AND a periodontist?? One stop shopping for anyone with receding gums! But WOW. I ended up truly LOVING their office! Everyone there treats you like family and I’ve been so welcomed and well cared for, I can’t imagine going any place else. The work done is impeccable, the billing is smooth and honest, and they truly do care about you. It helps a lot that everyone is super cool and friendly! Definitely a no judgement zone for those of you with messed up teeth (I would know) so come on in and they’ll take care of you!

Alex P. from Astoria, NY (Source: Yelp)

I met Dr. Lee first time via local ad, and he provided me a treatment plan in January 2017, which was including entire teeth cosmetic crowns, plus three implants. Each tooth needed a different fit and adjustment, I have uneven size teeth, and spaces. The treatment started with Invisalign Braces for 8 months, in between implants, and final each crowns tailored to make sure fit nicely and comfortable. Entire treatment last about 20 months. I am very happy to give 5 starts on these (1) no waiting for the appointment and always get to see doctor soon I walked into the office; (2) extremely clean, and simplicity deco; (3) All office staffs are extremely friendly and professional that I have to mention Ania, Eva, Jessica etc. (4) emails and phone calls always work, (5) always attend my concern and schedule addition visit without delay, when Dr. Lee not on site, Dr. Dumanian would me see me, no issue; (6) total customer satisfaction in mind, (7) doctor skills are superb, very discipline, and total confident. We worked together very well. I am happy for entire treatment, and highly recommended.

Hygienist Mariel is amazing! She’s so easy to talk to and does a great job explaining what she’s doing. Shes extremely thorough with cleaning and procedures. I really enjoy appointments with her and feel like she genuinely cares about her work. Dr. Lee is great too and I feel very comfortable with him! All around great office staff and experience.

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

★★★★★

Best all around care with thoughtfulness and thoroughness at every visit. Dr. Lee and Ania are the best I’ve come across providing dental care. I arrived with two problematic teeth, and Dr. Lee and Ania provided great care, especially emergency care. Office decor is nice, clean, calm, and relaxing with a great variety of music.

★★★★★

I’ve been going to my dentist for a while mainly because he was convenient and close to me. Mostly out of habit really…. But when someone told me about Delaire Dental, I decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! First impression, I’ve never seen a dentist office like it! It’s very clean and modern looking without that typical clinic feel. Anyway, Dr.Lee was really friendly, nice, and explained everything to me before he started treatment. I’m glad I made the switch – I’m definitely coming back for my next cleaning.

I LOVE Delaire Dental. I’ve been coming for about 3 years now. The office is so clean and comforting. The Staff friendly and welcoming. I’m so lucky I found this place Dr Lee is absolutely amazing. Never do I wait more than 5minutes to be seen. Today I woke up with a dental emergency and was taken care of with no problem. So guys if you are for the best Dental Team look no further. Thank you again to my DD Family !

Julia C. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Lee is an excellent dentist. I needed a tooth pulled and three implants done and he was brilliant at every step of the way, from having three bone grafts, a sinus lift, and placing the implants. Anya is also wonderful — I never had to call my insurance company even once because Anya would sort it all out for me. I am extremely happy with the work that Dr. Lee has done and would recommend him highly.

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

★★★★★

Great work by Dr. Lee – very professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Lee took care of a crown and filling for me that other dentists struggled with. Offices are very clean and comfortable. Staff is efficient and friendly. Best cleaning I have EVER done.I feel lucky to have found a great dentist in NYC. I would highly recommend Delaire Dental.

Ralph B. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I saw Dr. Lee in the spring of 2015 after two dentists told me that I needed 6 (six) implants. Dr. Lee suggested to install a splint so that I would be able to keep four of these and furthermore said that I could get by with only one implant for the two molars. To this day, I have no problems with the four teeth thanks to the splint. The cost for this and for the removal of the two molars were competitive even with the prices of dentists in Atlanta (where I subsequently moved and had the one implant done). Dr. Lee saved me a ton of money.

Dee Hinz (Source: Google)

★★★★★

Very clean facilities. Professional and polite staff. Extremely thorough annual cleaning. A higher level of technology used to examine my teeth and potential problem areas. Appointment starts on time and Dr. Lee is forthright about the cost of his care and his staff helps you to clarify what costs your insurance covers, since insurance companies do not make that easy. I look forward to getting my oral care taken care of with gentle and expert attention.

I made an appointment for my husband and I through ZocDoc, and I am so glad that we chose Dr. Lee at Delaire Dental.  Dr. Lee was very patient and explained everything from X-rays through the cleaning/exam.  I felt very calm and at ease.  My husband, who is a bit of a nervous patient at the dentist, was extremely impressed with how gentle Dr. Lee was, and how straight-forward he was.  Dr. Lee and his staff will not try to “sell” you on procedures that you don’t need, and I particularly like that!  Very knowledgeable Dr and staff, with a nice clean and high-tech office. Definitely the place to go for those that normally “fear” the dentist, or for those who may have “waited a little longer than suggested” to see one.

Why didn’t I switch to Delaire Dental sooner!? I’ve lived in Manhattan for over 5 years now…and for many years my interactions with dentists have been limited to cleaning visits twice a year. And because it was never anything too complicated, I didn’t feel it was necessary to find a new one. But I stumbled onto Delaire Dental when asking my friends where I could find a good periodontist in the city.One of them suggested I check out Dr. Lee. As soon as I walked in the door, I was in love with the look and feel of the dental office – it was modern, super clean (a must for me), and very artistic. Oh, and there are tons of windows! I was a little scared because it was my first dental implant but Dr. Lee was very patient and understanding. He put me at ease and explained to me all the steps and what my options are. I didn’t feel rushed at all. I’m grateful for the kindness and care they showed me.

Dr. Mike Lee is the BEST Dentist. I had a wonderful experience at Delaire Dental. Coming to Dental Delaire for my cavity was the best decision I ever made. I remember being nervous but Dr. Lee coaxed me and made me feel extremely comfortable. He is very experienced and knowledgeable in his field. He made the procedure as painless as possible – I didn’t feel a thing! Dr. Lee always listened to my comments, and worked towards dismissing any kind of anxiety I had with regard to my teeth, smile, etc. Besides being a very professional doctor, he also came across as a very genuine person, who genuinely cared for his patients. The office is beautiful, clean, and calm, with state of the art equipment – I really found it relaxing sitting in the massage chair, getting my teeth fixed while watching any show I want in the big screen ahead! It was a bit too much fun 😉 Dr. Lee maintains a fun, lively ambiance. I actually look forward to going in for my next appointment because of the incredibly friendly environment. I love love love the results. Thank you Dr Lee! I highly recommend Dr Lee for any dental needs you have. I truly loved every aspect coming to Delaire Dental. This is the best dental practice in town, hands down.

I highly recommend Delaire Dental and Dr. Lee! I was referred to Dr. Lee for osseous surgery and had an amazing experience from beginning to end. 1) Dr. Lee was really nice and made the surgery painless – literally. I never felt even an ounce of pain, from the very beginning fo my surgery to the end of recovery. I also really appreciated Dr. Lee’s bedside manner, in that he always let me know what he was going to do during the surgery before he did it, and what I should expect. (I hate when dentists just grab a new tool and start hacking away without any warning). 2) The front desk staff is amazing, too. They’re all super nice and made the billing process easy. 3) I felt like Dr. Lee and the whole Delaire Dental staff was very trustworthy (i.e. not trying to sell me stuff I don’t need or screw me on billing). They only did what they needed to do, and did their best to ensure the insurance company covered it after they did..

This experience has completely changed my mind about the dentist! The place is clean, friendly, very understanding. I had a bad experience with a prior dentist and was scared to go back. Luckily I found this office on ZocDoc and I am so thankful I did. I have been twice and have another appointment in MAY! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

I never left a review before and I have been waiting for “the one” well ironically it is my dentist! Honestly they have such a nice and caring staff and have been so understanding through the whole process. More importantly they have great dentists who immediately helped relieve my tooth ache. Thank you Delaire Dental!

★★★★★

The practice is very organized. Questions via email were always promptly answered. Text reminders were helpful. The office feels comfortable and inviting. Every staff/team member greets or acknowledges presence with a smile. Dr. Lee explained options clearly with a model or pictures on the flatscreen. He told me each step and what to expect during the procedure. The technichian assisting him was very attentive in keeping my lips clear of debris and mouth clear of saliva and water accumulation. Great chair side manner by the two. Receptionist is very kind and always smiling. She has great anecdotes. I am very happy with the services I have received.

My previously root-exposed teeth are now held fast by bionic gums like a G.I.Joe with kung fu grip. I recently went for receding gum line treatment from periodontist Dr. Michael Lee. He explained the procedure, expectations, and proper care in unrushed detail. The entire staff was super friendly during the initial and follow up visits. I was really dreading the anesthetic shots (bad memories from wisdom teeth removal ages ago). Maybe the pre-shot topical anesthetics have recently improved or this doctor has much steadier hands, but the entire procedure was surprisingly totally painless. Except about 3 hours after the procedure, you’ll definitely want to take that pain med!

I used to come here when I worked in midtown.  It’s right on 5th avenue right by the Empire State Building.  So convenient!  It is very easy to make an appointment.  The staff here are excellent.  Also, the office is very clean and modern.  All the equipment looks brand new.  Dr. Lee is very thorough but gentle.  More importantly he explains all the work that needs to be done.  He definitely cares about his patients.  I highly recommend!
