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

Lauren G. from Yorkville, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Love my dentists!!!  For most of my life I have gone to Dr Roger Gershon and thought nobody could match him. However, I am now seeing his son, Dr Andrew Gershon and Dr Roger Gershon has clearly mentored his son right!! Both doctors are caring, gentle, professional, talented and always up on the current procedures and techniques.  They are just THE BEST!!  I would not trust my teeth to anyone else!

A great dentist. Hygienists highly skilled and friendly. Office support great. Have been having my cleanings and dental work done here for probably 30 years. All the work still sturdy and in good order. Never a problem. No pain. Will give you whatever you need to avoid pain during procedures. Cannot recommend highly enough.

What a wonderful experience!! I’ve been dreading a visit to the dentist, but Dr. Gershon and his staff were fabulous!! From the moment I arrived to when I left, everyone was genuinely friendly, caring, and professional. The dental hygienist gave me a great cleaning and had a nice check up with Dr. Gershon. He also gave me great information about my oral health.

Phil H. from Port Jefferson, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Gershon was professional and understanding of my wife’s concern to her fear of dental procedures. He performed a root canal and was almost painless! He explained everything throughly he needed to do before hand, during and any post treatment precautions. Still needing a second one on the other side of my wife’s mouth, he explained to wait since it would affect her ability to eat. He is a definite recommend to anyone who needs an endo.

I saw Dr. Andrew Gershon (the son) as an emergency new patient. He was fantastic. His assistant Donna is very caring and helpful; I felt really comfortable with them. Dr. Gershon explained everything to me in a way that I could understand and helped me make a plan to resolve not only my current issue but my 5-step plan to overall dental health. I will be returning to them for my primary dental care.

John Z. from Putnam Valley, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gershon is excellent! The office is professional and clean. The work space is spotless. The doctor returns calls right away, unlike others we have called. Dr. Gershon explains the procedure and asks for questions, there is no rush.He is very funny with a wonderful bed side manner. He called the night after the procedure to see if everything was ok. Never had this service from any doctor.You may have to wait a bit to get an appointment but the doctor will call you if he has a cancellation. This doctor is well worth the wait.You will not be disappointed.

AM J. from Port Jervis, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gershon is a gentleman, extremely caring & professional. (NYC Office – 400 East 56th Street, Suite 1, New York, NY 10022 (212) 888-8847 Let me preface this by saying I am not a patient BUT I wish I was … He 1st off called me back HIMSELF @ 8am & APOLOGIZED for not calling back the SAME DAY- he couldn’t b/c of a religious holiday. I was SHOCKED & in AWE for obvious reasons. I left a message for Dr. Gershon yesterday as I need an endodontist for a root canal that is getting problematic & difficult (other NYC endodontist never even called back). Unfortunately, he stated I really need an endodontist right away to save the tooth BUT he would be more than to willing to see me in 3-4 weeks in Oct. However, he advised me that I shouldn’t wait as my tooth pain will get worse. Again, I wish I could have Dr. Gershon treat me right now b/c if he went to that trouble for a new patient, imagine the extra miles he goes for his actual patients.

Chillie R. from Mount Hope, KS (Source: Yelp)


I had done a root canal in Jamaica about 4 year ago; I went to my dentist here in NYC 2-3 weeks ago to get a clean and X-Ray done, and she founded that I had caught infection in the root canal. It had to be removed immediately she says. So she referred me to Dr. Andrew Gershon, who is the absolute best Endodontist in NYC. I instantly made an appointment and went to get it removed by Dr. Gershon who did an exceptional job. Now, a week later, absolutely No pain, all healed, and will be going to get my permanent filling tomorrow at 9am.

Neil S. from CA, CA (Source: Yelp)


Saw Dr. Gershon today, after a referral from Star Dental Smile on the UES. Fortunately he had an appointment the next morning. Superb. I/we were concerned that he wouldn’t be able to do the root canal because of calcium build up, but after 2+ hours non stop in the chair, everything was done. The guy is funny, but once treatment starts all business (and refreshingly works no other assistants wandering in and out). I walked out of his offices at 11.30am, am writing this at 1.30pm, and my mouth is completely back to normal. Very impressed, and obviously would heartily recommend.

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


Earlier this week I had a second root canal procedure performed by Dr Gershon. I returned to him because I trust his professional opinion and his work (painless!) If Dr Gershon can’t save your tooth, no one can! He is honest (from the initial phone conversation) and will tell you exactly what he will be able to do (or not). He’s very clear about copays and your financial responsibility (with his touch of humor). He will very carefully explain aftercare… I experienced absolutely no pain in the hours or days following the procedure. Very experienced and thorough.

Yowell R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Gershon was very good at his work. He was very professional and thorough with his work. He made sure that i knew what the procedure entailed and that my questions were answered before the procedure was started. The doctor was very friendly and funny, which i think helps to put you at ease if you are not comfortable with dentist appointments. He also followed up to make sure all was well post treatment. I would fully recommend to any of my friends or family.

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


I had written a review for Dr. Gershon about six weeks ago and for some reason is not listed. Dr. Gershon merits a 2nd review to communicate his attentiveness and excellence to other potential patients. Each time I called Dr. Gershon he called me back within a short time. When I went to his office there was a very short wait to see him. Dr. Gershon’s root canal treatment was so smooth he makes it seem like root canal treatment has an unfair reputation. He followed up with a call to ask about the tooth treated. Dr. Gershon prides himself in providing the highest quality dental care.He is the definition of professionalism in all respects

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


At the suggestion of my lifelong dentist, Dr. Gershon treated me today for root canal.  Dr. Gershwin was highly professional, very skilled, and extraordinarily thorough.  That, along with his clear communication skills, calming approach, and attentiveness make me value and appreciate his care. A fine endodontist and a fine human being.

Felicia C. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gershon is great! He is everything you would want in a dentist (or any doctor, really) – he’s is personable, kind, thorough and really really good. He took his time – I never felt as though he was rushing – his primary concern was my (and my tooth’s!) well being. I was coming from a dentist where I had a really bad experience, so I was a little skeptical at first, but he immediately put me at ease. Also – he does his own scheduling! This was great because I was able to speak directly with him before coming in for my root canal. He’s great – I definitely recommend. Dr. Gershon.

Robert S. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Andrew Gershon, DDS is the ultimate professional Endodontist! His skill is keeping the patient comfortable and informed during the procedure which he executes with perfection. I have had 3 root canals performed by him and haver never suffered the pain and uncomfortable recovery that others have verbalized with other Endodontists. Highly recommended! Andrew is also a Veteran!! Support our Veterans! -Rob Schnell

Gerard C. from Jersey City, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr Gershon just did a root canal for me and I have to say he did a most excellent job. He did everything possible to make the whole experience as pleasant and painless as possible. Less than 24 hours later, I was already off pain killers. Just needed an occasional ice pack for the rest of the day. Day 3 and I’m close to fully recovered. My thanks and respect to you Dr Gershon. You are an artist, a wizard and a gentleman!

Patricia H. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


So my daughter was in need of a root canal and her insurance provided me with a list of providers and Dr. Gershon was on of them that I chose. He is a pleasant and warm hearted speaking provider. He informed me of all of the necessary documents that were needed and how he was going to provide services to my daughter. I spoke with him on 7/27/18 and he informed me that he will give me a call back as to there would be availability on Monday. In the afternoon Dr. Gershon called me back and made me aware that my daughters appointment is scheduled for 12:45pm on 7/30/18. My daughter attended her appointment and she text me and said “Mom the dentist is nice” I told her that I was glad. Dr. Gershon also asked me if there were any other questions that I needed to ask. However, Dr. Gershon provided me with all of the necessary information that was needed that I did not have to ask any questions. I’m happy with him and so is my daughter. If, I know of anyone who is in need of dental services and is eligible to see him, I will definitely recommend him. He is great and if I am in need of dental services, I will chose Dr. Gershon as well. Thank you again Dr. Gershon. Also he is kind and caring and that’s what makes the visit go smoothly.

Sabrina S. (Source: Zocdoc)


Very personable and patient, answering all of my questions. Zero wait time. I showed up maybe 20 minutes early and I was out of there within 35 minutes. He was also very encouraging and didn’t make me feel guilty about what I was/wasn’t doing regarding my dental hygiene. He even gave me some tips on how to brush more effectively.

Paul L. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gershon has performed three root canals on me over the past few years. I can say without reservation that he is one of the best dentists I’ve ever seen. He is a true professional who takes his work – and his patient’s health – seriously. And, he uses modern, state of the art equipment. Over the course of my life, I’ve been treated by well over a dozen dentists in different cities, but only Dr. Gershon (and one other dentist) has given me a face-to-face general health checkup each time before beginning any work. Prior to each procedure, Dr. Gershon reviewed my current health status … and he checked my vital signs before administering an anaesthetic and beginning the procedure. In each case, there was no pain during and after the work ended, and no complications. I’m a bit confused by one of the comments written by someone else about Dr. Gershon “discussing only money when my dentist referred me to him for a consultation.” I have dental coverage and seek dentists who accept my plan. Prior to my first appointment with Dr. Gershon, we talked about coverage. He agreed to accept my coverage and I agreed to pay whatever the carrier decided was my responsibility. Dr. Gershon did his best to advise me of costs. And, why not? Why would the subject of insurance and payment not be discussed prior to a first appointment? The coverage for all plans are different and not every procedure may be covered by a particular plan. In a situation where a consultation is asked for (as was the case in this comment), I would expect that any endodontist would need to perform a procedure to check for nerve vitality whether or not it is covered. To avoid surprises, he was right to mention it. Ironically, last year Dr. Gershon performed a nerve vitality test on a tooth, and the procedure was not covered. In fact, few insurers cover the procedure. In my case, my insurer submitted the amount that an endodontist would accept if it was covered. Here’s the code and coverage as published by the ADCA (“American Dental Coders Association”):

Dr Roger Gershon is the most outstanding, caring, kind, and gifted dentist! He has taken care of me for more than 35 years, and I am now delighted also to see Dr Andrew Gershon, who has joined his father’s practice. Roger is the most technology forward person in any medical speciality I’ve ever known–and the office culture is warm, meticulous, sensitive, and super professional. Except beautiful teeth, a warm blanket if you need it, and a painless experience. I love my smile!

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


I have known Dr. Gershon for years. I was his patient when he was in Queens. I am still his patient and, if he opened in Timbuktu, I would travel there to see only him. He is a painless specialist in root canal with extensive knowledge in dental care. Over the 35 years I know him, he has done several root canals for me, each one better than the next. Dr. Gershon works hard to make sure his patients have painless procedures and he accomplishes that all the time…from the minute he gives a totally painless Novocaine injection till the time he finishes the procedure and beyond, I was 100% comfortable. In fact, often times, I laugh my way through root canal because Dr. G has a warm, engaging and humorous way of treating his patients. I can say, I love root canal because of who does the procedure. His after care is detailed and if you do what he advises, you won’t even know you had a root canal. This doc rates 99.9% and you will never find one better anywhere in the world. He told me his patients come all over the world and I believe it. This is a skilled practitioner with warmth, compassion, a great sense of humor and magical hands. Don’t settle for anyone else, you could be sorry. And, fraidy cats? He will cater to you like you are his own kid. Promise! Bravo, Dr. Gershon, you are the BEST in NYC then, now, always! Thank you so much for a lifetime of wonderful care and all the laughter, too. God bless.

Danielle G. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


Had my appointment after work.  I was late due to train situations and he was more than accommodating.  Very thorough with the explanation of what is going to happen before, during, and after the procedure.  He does everything himself, no secretary or dental assistant!  I had a root canal on my back upper tooth and he did it with minimal pain.  I have had other root canals that have caused me much more pain and swelling.  I was very pleased with his professionalism.  He is very funny, as well.

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


Needed to get a root canal re-treated and needed a great dentist that would accept my insurance. Luckily for me Dr. Gershon was on that list! He was professional and attentive to my needs. Explained everything and made sure that I was comfortable the whole way through. He was quick to return all calls and followed up after my procedure. I would highly recommend him.

I’ve been a patient for over 20 years! Dr. Gershon has always been gentle, thorough and accommodating. I now see his son and I am pleased to say He is Amazing! He understands my fear of the dentist and walked me through every step! Diane, the office manager is always accommodating and helpful. Dana the Dentist assistant is also Amazing!Elida the hygienist does the best cleanings! So if your looking this is the right Dentist for you!

Jeff A. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Have had several procedures done by Dr Gershon and without question, he is the most competent Endodontist, and for that matter dentist I have ever dealt with. He is pleasant, extraordinarily knowledgeable, and thorough. HIs new office in Manhattan is state of the art. My new Dentist (old one retired) is very impressed with Dr Gerson’s work.

Kevin S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gershon was very professional and polite on both occasion that I visited his office for my root canal. He did such a great job with my 1st root canal that I decided to go back to him a 2nd time. The atmosphere in his office is always friendly and welcoming. Before performing my root canal he always put me at ease and explain the procedure fully. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for an Endo.

Debbie E. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Gershon is an excellent Endodontist very thorough, professional, friendly and efficient. There was little to no wait time upon arrival at the office. Each time I have had to have a root canal he puts me at ease. He is funny and that helps to take your mind off of being nervous about the procedure you are having.He explains everything he will be doing before, during and afterwards he gives you precise instructions on what to do to care for your new root canal. He generally listens to classical music which also helps to make you feel calm and relaxed during the procedure If you follow his instructions following the root canal you will have no issues during the healing process. I highly recommend his services to anyone who needs an endodontist

Maggie O. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gershwin is a divine gift if you need relief from a toothache, a root canal, or surgery.  First, I called him on a Sunday afternoon; he got back to me within an hour, called in a prescription, advised me how to treat the tooth until I saw him, and found time for my appt. within two days.  Even though the surgery I required was quite extensive, he kept discomfort at a minimum and showed concern and patience.  His work is exceptional.  He’s my hero!  I highly recommend him!

Jj S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


You need more stars for this dentist/endodontist.  Five isn’t enough.  Wow.  My 14-year-old daughter, who’s an avid tennis player, had a tournament final today–and yesterday, she had a root canal performed by Dr. Gershon.  We’d been trying to schedule a root canal with local dentists in Brooklyn and had no luck finding a good one.  On one occasion, after waiting in a factory-like dental office for 4 1/2 hours, they decided we needed to come back because the first visit was a consultation. After a few choice words at the stupidity on display in this office, I made a complaint about this kind of treatment to my insurance, and under the recommendation of our regular dentist, we booked an appointment with Gershon.  We’d had everything planned down to the day. I anticipated my daughter making it to the finals which were scheduled for Wednesday (two days ago).  We got to the tournament for the final and just as my daughter and her opponent stepped on the court, it started to pour.  After an hour or so wait to see if the weather would clear, we left and asked that they please reschedule the final for Friday–which they did.  We got to Gershon’s office the next day to a jovial man with lots of jokes and a calm, professional and super confident demeanor.  It’s actually fun to talk to this man, and he will make you laugh in six or so different languages if you can speak them (in my case, it was Spanish).  My daughter was nervous about the procedure and any pain she might experience the next day.  The doctor assured us she’d be fine, and then said, “And she’ll win.”  Words of wisdom and excellence.  I left my daughter looking nervous, and I waited in the reception area listening to drilling, suction and what sounded like my daughter laughing.  For the entire procedure Dr. Gershon calmed my daughter by telling jokes and making sure she felt no pain.  The only pain came from the novocaine shots (a pin prick), then NOTHING.  When Dr. Gershon was done (about an hour or so), he came into the reception area and told me he was done and to wake up (I was very sleepy).  My daughter was smiling, her right cheek was a little swollen and after assuring us everything was perfect, Dr. Gershon cracked a few more jokes about wanting NIKE sneakers that would make him jump nine or ten feet in his pickup basketball games (the doc is a Vietnam Veteran, so you can guess his approximate age; he’s very fit, btw), he wished us good luck and told us he’d call to check in later.  My daughter had recently done a NIKE photo-shoot celebrating her favorite tennis player, Simona Halep, and NIKE gave her free sneakers (yes!).  Unfortunately, NIKE doesn’t make sneakers that make you superhuman, so we promised to look into Dr. Gershon’s request anyway (always keep hope alive).  Listen to this doctor when he recommends stuff.  After giving us instructions for post-op care, we bought the Advil Liquid-Gels he recommended, followed his dosage instructions, and I bought my daughter a Coolatta at the local Dunkin’ Donuts (ice cream and ices encouraged after a root canal).  I kept asking my daughter if she was okay as we walked to the train to head home, and she said, “I’m fine, I don’t feel anything.  I’m numb.”  She kept making weird faces at me to assure me she was fine.  So, we got home, she ate food (nothing hard or sticky) on the opposite side of her mouth, applied the ice pack we prepared, took the Advil and went to sleep with just a little soreness and a swollen cheek.  I woke up early today and opened the door to her bedroom and asked if she was okay, and she said that other than being sleepy, she didn’t feel any pain.  Her cheek was no longer swollen. Under her objections, I made her take two more Advil after breakfast, we got to to the tournament an hour early so she could hit and warm-up with her younger brother (another tennis maniac), and an hour and a half later, my daughter won her championship match:  6-0, 6-2.  She played super hard and dominated.  Amazing!  She just went to sleep a little while ago (it’s 11:00 pm), and was super happy holding her trophy, dying to get up and practice tennis.  Awesome!  I’m very grateful to Dr. Gershon for making the root canal super easy, and perfectly done.  I’ve never been to a better dentist than this man.  And he did call later that night to make sure everything as okay.  You don’t get this kind of attention from many medical professionals anymore.  May this man never retire and live forever.  Thank you, Dr. Gershon.  Thank you.

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


Dr. Gershon went above and beyond to work with my insurance in order to do my root canal therapy. He was incredible at communication and returning calls and he also did a really good job on my tooth – from the diagnosis isolating the correct tooth – to the actual root canal procedure. His office uptown is clean and spacious and overall I’d recommend him to others for Endodondist work as he was recommended by my primary dentist highly also. Appreciated everything he did for me greatly.

Aurelia G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Gershon is great. I would recommend him to everyone. The first time I spoke with Dr Gershon was on the phone he called me on the phone to confirm my appointment. He had me feeling like I knew him for years. His sense of humor is out of this world. I laughed the whole time I was on the phone with him. It got even better when I met him in person. He’s a great Dr. He explains everything he’s going to do so that there won’t be any confusion. He lets you see the before and after effects which is great I got 3 root canal’s done by him and I was very satisfied. What mostly blew me away with Dr Gershon is he calls you to check up on you to see how your doing and he doesn’t call you one time he calls you two and three times just to make sure your alright. I never had that done to me before. So in my book Dr Gershon gets 10 stars from me. Dr Gershon is a great doctor all around.

Lisbeth R. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Andrew Gershon! He is an amazing Endodontist because he loves what he does and I saw and felt it first hand. I was so nervous when I first met him because I was having my first root canal and I did not know what to expect. Dr. Gershon put me at ease immediately. He was such a kind gentleman and was very attentive to my every need. He took his time to explain each step of the procedure to me and checked in with me to see how I was feeling from beginning to end.  Dr. Gershon is very knowledgeable in his profession and was extremely thorough, which put my mind at ease. He is such a great conversationalist in both English and Spanish and he had me laughing throughout my procedure! I honestly never thought I would be so eager to have a second root canal done just two weeks later! Yes, you read it right! For me, Dr. Gershon is that good and I highly recommend him.  He is not only a very nice man, but he truly cares for his patients. How do I know? Because on each occasion he gave me a follow-up call the same day to check on me and see how I was feeling. Now you tell me, wouldn’t you love him too?

Irene M. from Oakland Gardens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gershon has moved into Manhattan and is now located at 400 East 56 St. I have known him for 30 years and I would go to Siberia if that’s the place I had to go to see him at. He’s a painless dentist, concerned with his patient’s comfort, well being and making the experience as positive as possible. Thirty years ago I had painless root canal from Dr. Gershon, yesterday, April 10, 2013, I once again had painless root canal once again from Dr. Gershon. He goes the extra mile for his patients. Anyone who is apprehensive about root canal can do themselves a favor by meeting him and placing their trust in him. This morning I am totally painfee, taking only Motrin, I have no swelling and I absoultely credit Dr. Gershon with this as many people tell their tales about root canal that sound unpleasant. Dr. Gershon, on the other hand, has a following of people like myself who wouldn’t THINK of having root canal with anyone else but him. He is price friendly and honesly even if he wasn’t, he would totally be worth it. A GREAT man, an excellent dentist and just the best there is! THANK YOU, DR. GERSHON!

Stephen K. from Astoria, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


From the moment we spoke on the phone I knew he was not your usual dentist.The fact that HE actually answers the phone and calls you back himself to discuss procedures or confirm an appointment is something that just doesn’t happen this day and age. On top of that he has a great personality, explains everything thoroughly, jokes with you but when it came down to the procedure he’s all business. I had a root canal done in his office last week. He didn’t rush through anything, spending a lot of time working on me. I never felt a thing and actually almost fell asleep in his chair a couple of times,that’s how comfortable and pain free the procedure was. Post procedure was also a piece of cake, no bleeding, swelling or pain. His office is conveniently located in Manhattan on 56th street. If your looking for an excellent Endodontist, look no further than Dr. Andrew Gershon
