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

Sharika V. from Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Very supportive environment. The office was bright, clean and welcoming. The say ahh neon sign was the icing for me. Even the receptionists were warm and friendly. The check in process was easy and smooth right on a laptop. Dr. Pyon was informative and open with great energy. Went in for dental cleaning and received pearly whites. On top of that I’ve learned more about my teeth structure and how to best take care of them. Looking forward in returning.

I am posting this because I feel injustice has been done to dr pyon. She did not deserve that negative review (from what looks like a very bitter person with nothing material to explain) so I want to share my experience. Dr Pyon is the best dentist I’ve ever had. Her front desk is super nice and responsive. I get all my appointments conveniently sent to my calendar. The office is clean, bright and modern. She explains each step of the process as she works on my teeth with a very calm voice. She has the most gentle hands and is very responsive to my feedback so nothing is ever a surprise. Seeing her has helped me get pass my dental anxiety and finally keep up a routine care. I’ve recommended my husband, colleagues and friends to see her because she is that amazing! Once you find a great dentist, you hold tight.

Walking in to Dr.Pyon’s office immediately relaxed me (because we all know how we all feel about dentist appointments!). The soothing aroma (essential oils), the warm neon sign on the wall that read “ahhh, smile…”, and the warm greeting from the receptionist was all it took to ease my nerves. The check-in, even as a new patient, was extremely quick and I was seen right away. Dr. Pyon was extremely factual about what was going on with my teeth and gums, and never did i feel judged (because I worried that I hadn’t been to a dentist in so long). She was warm, friendly, extremely professional and did everything to make sure I was comfortable, and knew all the details and next steps. Highly recommend her! I’m even looking forward to my next cleaning in 6 mos

I’m a busy professional with limited time and thought I’d try a dentist near my office give it a shot so to speak. Dr. Pyon is truly fantastic. Her facility is clean and well maintained, she is very personable and takes time to explain in a calming tone what procedure(s) will be taking place, and her work is impeccable ranging from regular exam visits for cleanings to fillings and general denistry. I would recommend Dr. Pyon to anyone who is looking for a great dentist all around.

Michael R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I do not go to NYC often, but when I do, I do not go there to visit a dentist. Alas, dental emergencies do happen. Finding an affordable but also not creepy dentist in Midtown Manhattan is not easy, so when I found Dr. Pyon’s office, I was sold. The place is nice, conveniently located, and the doctor is charming, caring, and knows what she is doing. I was in and out – pain free – in about 30-45 minutes. Not sure if I will ever be back, but I just wanted to say thank you and give them some love, if a couple months too late.

Antonio D. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I recently saw Dr Pyon after not having any dental care in the last three years and I cannot agree more with the excellent reviews that others have written here. She is professional, concise and to the point. My experience was excellent. From the moment I stepped into the office, I was warmly greeted by her receptionist and did not have to wait at all to be seen. Dr Pyon introduced herself very professionally but also very much approachable. She asked me about my past dental treatments and experiences and what I perceived to be my dental needs. She patiently listened to everything I said and made her recommendations as to what she felt I needed. I had a series of xrays taken which she discussed with me in detail and then she proceeded to perform a cleaning. I must say not always a pleasant experience, but with Dr Pyon it certainly was. She took care to make sure I was comfortable throughout the entire procedure. The appointment took not more than an hour but at no moment did I feel rushed which has been the case at other practices. I truly am grateful I found Dr Pyon and recommend her to anyone without reservations!

Chris L. from Battery Park, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


My coworker recommended Dr. Pyon to me. Even though I work downtown it is easy to get to from most subway lines. I was very impressed with Dr. Pyon’s attention to detail and knowledge. For many, going to the dentist can be such a painful experience that they don’t even go in for bi-annual check-ups. I went in to have a few filling redone and it was so comfortable I actually feel asleep in the chair while she took out the old filling and replaced it with a higher quality filling. Pros: -Explains in detail about what she is doing. My other dentist, just come in and do their work without explaining what they are doing and what you might be doing wrong so you never learn from your mistake. -The visit was 100% with the actual dentist and not some assistant. -Flexible office hours Con: -Drills. I hate drills…. I need to do a better job with my teeth to avoid it! But with that being said I still fell asleep I highly recommend and I will be going back soon to do a whitening!

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


I’ve been going to the same dentist since I was a child, basically a friend of the family. Since he retired I tried Dr. Pyon. I knew I had a couple cavities I’ve been putting off. She explained a lot more and did a lot more than my old dentist (now I know what a proper check up, cleaning and fillings are really supposed to be). Overall everything was clear and easy!

June M. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Google)


From the welcoming staff at the front desk to the dental services done by Dr. Pyon herself, the experience was great, which is not usually a word that describes dental visits. Clean office and short wait time. It is really great that you get access to the dentist and not an assistant. Dr. Pyon is warm, patient, and professional. As it was my first visit she took the time to make me comfortable before cleaning my teeth. She did a thorough cleaning, and she also explained my X-rays as well. Unlike many dentists that just see you for a three minute consultation after the teeth cleaning is done by someone else, Dr. Pyon’s office actually treats you like a person, not just another billing opportunity. I appreciate their approach and would highly recommend her to my friends and family. As the other reviewers have also mentioned, they are upfront with costs so there are no surprises. And of course, you also get a dental “goody bag” upon your departure.

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


Dr. Pyon is excellent! She’s professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Going to the dentist is generally not an enjoyable experience, but I actually looked forward to my checkups with Dr. Pyon. The staff in her office are great as well. If I didn’t move out of NYC, I would have happily continued going to her.

Joey W. from Hackensack, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pyon is absolutely wonderful! She’s taken care of my teeth before i was pregnant, during my pregnancy and after my pregnancy! See very attentive and never makes you wait long. She spaced out her appointments so you get maximum privacy. Explains to you what you need done, what’s going on with your teeth and what would be the most cost effective and best approach. Her cleanings are never rough and definitely not short. She constantly asks whether you are comfortable and care about how you feel. She is not one of those dentist that just have the tech do the x-ray, looks at them and they just gets to doing and then cleaning. Never had an issue with scheduling, she opens late two nights a week and responds to emails tooo! The best dentist I’ve ever been too. My husband would take a afternoon off to see her when he’s due for cleaning too!

Mai V. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Had a great experience with Dr. Pyon. Office is clean and uses modern technology including a laptop to register and file paperwork. Front office is friendly and easy to deal with. She is professional and efficient when it comes to the cleaning and consultation. I have used her for my general dental cleanings for the past few years and will continue to recommend her to friends. Overall, a great dentist in the Manhattan area and I have been to a variety of offices!!!

Dawn C. from Richmond Hill, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Pyon since 2011 and stayed with her through an office change. She is thorough, and takes a conservative approach to care. She is also very kind and gentle and empathetic. She is constantly checking in on my comfort level during procedures. Her office is run well, is super clean and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Little to no wait time during appointments.

Vita T. from Woodside, NY (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Pyon and her team. They are responsive,  professional and do excellent work. Dr. Pyon and her staff have high standards, use new technology, and provided an excellent specialist for my root canal. On top of that, they have integrity and are clear about insurance and payment questions. This is the best dentist I found in NYC.  I truly appreciate them!

Ildar G. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this most gentle, knowledgeable and taking care of her patients for a long time and still going to see this dentist Dr.HeeJoo Pyon as my favorite dentist. I am highly recommend to see this dentist for treatment and you will be happy. Great staff, beautiful office and amazing dentist.

I have suffered with dental phobia for the last 13 years. After a seven day toothache I finally decided it was time to get work done. I chose Dr.Pyon and will never look back. The staff is beyond attentive and caring. When I walked in I was greeted by Mirian who got me settled in and then passed me to Crystal who made me feel so comfortable. I explained this was an emergency as I was leaving on holiday in 48 hours. Dr.Pyon came in and immediately assessed the situation knowing I was in a time crunch and began the first part of a root canal. As this was my first time back to the dentist in so many years I was nervous about the pain. She finished and I was in shock at how painless and quick it was! They then slotted me a time the following morning before my flight with the specialist to finish my root canal. Dr. Rob was so kind and extremely skilled. I felt nothing while he worked diligently on the second part of my root canal. A swift hour later I was done and on my way home with NO PAIN during or after the procedure.I cannot express how thankful I am for this office! I now no longer have a fear of the dentist and will be back regularly! If you are looking for a new dentist office you need to go here! The office is modern and clean with ZERO wait time!

Aaron T. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


After taking a two year sabbatical from dental care (or is it three years?), I went to visit Dr. Pyon. I’m not gonna lie — Chris L from Battery Park City is pretty much spot on. What a great dentist! Please don’t judge me, but so far, I’ve gotten a pulpotomy, a couple fillings, a cap (to complete a root canal), and an Invisalign consultation. All of these treatments were performed with minimal discomfort. Plus, during each of my visits, Dr. Pyon allowed me to play my own music via Spotify, a huge benefit for those who don’t want to hear Top 40 while they are getting pulpotimized. After going to Dr. Pyon, I have absolutely no tooth sensitivity anymore, and my cap feels just like my real tooth used to, except without the bacterial decay. Also, I’m looking forward to finally getting Invisalign. On a serious note, Dr. Pyon is an outstanding dentist who made me feel comfortable at all times. It also meant a lot that she followed up with me after each of my procedures and was extremely responsive to every question that I emailed her. I’m positive that if your teeth aren’t as jacked up as mine were, you probably would still receive the quality service that I was provided. But if you’ve been a little lax with the homecare … make an appointment ASAP and don’t be scurred about going to Dr. Pyon.

Dr. Pyon is a phenomenal dentist and I am so happy the universe has allowed us to cross paths. I came in for pain on a tooth which resulted in nothing serious thankfully. However on the other side of my mouth I had no idea I needed a root canal. I was so hurt that I allowed this happen but I am happy I am in great hands. She has an amazing staff who has taken good care of me so far. I feel at ease each time I come in. Going to the dentist used to freak me out but now I look forward to it because of Dr. Pyon. Truly a blessing in disguise.

Dr. Pyon’s office is the best dentist experience I’ve ever had. Not only was my cleaning appointment quick and easy, but Dr. Pyon and her staff were so nice and understanding of my concerns. They helped talk me through my insurance issues and explained my treatment options. Dr. Pyon was also very gentle with the teeth cleaning. Normally I would approach dental appointments with dread, but I look forward to going back to Dr. Pyon for further treatments.

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


Review***** Excellent Dr. Pyon is thoughtful & thorough. She thought of putting a number gel on my gums since my teeth are sensitive. She’s also very gentle & gave me the things I requested (by the time I got home, I already have it in my email). Also replies promptly when you have a question Azucena Madison

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


I am extremely picky with who I let get close to my mouth with sharp metal tools. I decided to trust the Yelp reviews and I am sure glad I did. I had a bond fall off from a koreatown dentist and concern about being scammed when the dentist was filling cavity and mid drilling said I need a crown which cost me 1,000 clams on the tooth that never gave any pain. When I spoke with dr pyon about it, she explained that while it is possible, it is also possible that a diagnosis can change during a procedure. I really admired her honest answers. But we don’t go to dentists for their social skills…on to the teeth work, it gets cramped up in our teeth and I strongly think dr pyon’s small steady hands make her work better then a fat fingered dentist. She answered all my questions patiently. I went back today cause another bond popped off again from a different dentist. I just think dr pyon does a great job making the entire dental experience as pleasant as possible. Very unusual in a convenient city location to have a nice friendly dentist. She didn’t push me to have this or that procedure like pasts dentists have done to me. Her office is clean. Her English is excellent too.

My reason for seeing a new dentist because my previous dentist was pushing a product I didn’t feel I needed. Therefore, I went to Dr. Pyon because she came highly recommended by my friends. I recently went to see Dr. Pyon and it was a truly excellent experience. For many people going to the dentist can be nerve racking. I found this office visit vastly different. She thoroughly explained everything she was doing (I found this very comforting because I wasn’t going down the path of the unknown) and even took the time to explain how I could improve my dental hygiene. I could tell she is very educated and has a great deal of knowledge of the latest trends and technologies in the industry. Also, my previous dental experiences, I only saw the actual dentist for maybe 5-10 mins. This was not the case with my visit. Dr. Pyon was present for the full duration of the visit. I highly recommend Dr. Pyon. Other Pros: -Flexible hours -Speaks Korean

I have been reading YELP reviews since the company’s inception in late 2004, but very rarely am I inspired to write a review myself. In fact, this is only the 3rd one I’ve ever written. However, after visiting with Dr. Pyon twice over the past month, I feel it necessary to publicize the fact that she is far and away the most professional, skilled, and trustworthy dentist I have ever worked with. Allow me to explain why I feel this way, and why I have solicited Dr. Pyon to be the dentist for every employee in my company (I run a consulting company with a staff of 20+). I come from a family of doctors. Almost everyone in my immediate family is a master surgeon, clinician, scientist or MD of some sort. From a young age, I have been taught to inquire about any medical procedure being performed on me in painstaking detail. Before meeting Dr. Pyon, I met and rejected 5 dentists who were unable to demonstrate their knowledge to me sufficiently. One of them is a Fifth Avenue celebrity dentist who has a 6-month waiting list and charged me $400/visit (no insurance accepted). Still not good enough. When I met Dr. Pyon for a consultation, not only was she extremely knowledgeable, she patiently tolerated my barrage of questions, answering calmly and precisely. It was clear to me from that moment on that if I ever became anxious in the chair during a procedure, she would provide the serenity I needed. I eventually met Dr. Pyon for x-rays, a cleaning, and a teeth-whitening procedure. All were extraordinarily painless and quick. When it comes to pain tolerance, I am about as fragile as an adult child of alcoholic parents, so do not take my description lightly. In addition, the entire visit from the time you enter her office until your departure is as brief as possible. Dr. Pyon has the most modern check-in service, equipment, and works very efficiently/effectively. She is NOT one of those dentists who has their assistant do half the work or one who leaves you in the room alone for 10 minutes while he calls the cleaners to see if his suit is ready. Dr. Pyon gives you her undivided attention. She also followed up with me within 24 hours of each of my visits and made herself accessible through phone and email. Finally, over the past 20 years, I have had 10+ fillings, 8 teeth extractions, braces, retainer work, 1 root canal, and countless x-rays and cleanings. My only regret is that I didn’t meet Dr. Pyon sooner. As you may have gathered by now, I am a notoriously selective and discerning individual, especially when it comes to health care. Suffice to say, if Dr. Pyon passes my hyper-critical assessment, she will pass damn near everyone else’s. I would not be surprised if she was the dentist that other dentists trusted with their teef. Save your valuable time. Don’t call anyone else. Make an appointment with Dr. Pyon immediately. Ryan

Dr Pyon is outstanding! There not enough words to describe the feeling of being taken care of when in terrible pain. Dr Pyon saw me at my worst and was gentle, patient and caring. She made every effort to relieve my pain and get me comfortable. I had made an emergency appointment with her via ZocDoc because I was having unreal tooth pain, it was Memorial Day weekend and my (now former) dentist was unreachable. She accommodated an 8am Monday appointment, despite the fact that I was a new patient. She was able to bring me relief and got me through to a specialist for a root canal the next day. Not many people have such high standards and professionalism. I have never been treated by a medical professional with as much care and compassion, and I am so relieved to have found her.

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


Dr. Pyon is great! She has such a friendly bedside manner and is by far the most gentle dentist I have ever been to. She makes sure you have your questions answered and is very knowledgeable. I also visited for my first appointment since COVID and felt extremely safe with the safety measures that she and the office were taking. Would definitely recommend and have recommended her to my friends!

Shane F. from East Village, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pyon is awesome! She’s attentive and friendly and very efficient. She answers all of your questions before and after any appointment, and I find her to be incredibly knowledgeable. Her office has also taken every precaution since COVID-19. Highly recommend her for cleanings and any other dental procedures you need.

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


Most gentle dentist ever! I finally found my forever dentist. lol Dr. Pyon is absolutely wonderful in her bedside manner and also expertise. I actually look forward to my checkups now rather than dread it. She is super conscious of how the patient feels during her procedure. On top of that her staff is very efficient and great with follow ups and explaining the billing. If you’re delaying your dental visit because of fear, book an appointment with Dr. Pyon. You won’t regret it!

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


Dr. Pyon is impressive for several reasons: She’s a “fixer.” I came to her with tooth pain that my regular dentist couldn’t handle and, while acknowledging that my dentist had acted correctly, fixed the problem. Without any hesitation, she did an emergency root canal that worked. She’s obviously a very action oriented dentist. She knows what she’s doing and does it. She’s accessible. The first time I saw her was after 6PM, the second time on Memorial Day, times when most dentists aren’t available. I’ve never known another dentist who went out of her way to accommodate a patient’s schedule. She’s genuinely compassionate. She knew what I was experiencing and empathized completely. I’ve usually found dentists to be a cold, unfeeling lot, but Dr. Pyon is just the opposite: warm, caring and friendly. These are the reasons I’m switching to Dr. Pyon from my regular dentist. She has my confidence and my trust

Dr. Pyon has a clear passion and commitment to give a positive experience and excitement to go to the Dentist. I am beyond grateful for Dr. Pyon’s professional nature and brilliant way of talking me through my procedure and I am so grateful in what she does. I have been a patient for over five years and I will be for as long as I possibly can.

Catherine H. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Definitely recommend Dr. Pyon!! She is absolutely amazing. I was suffering from extreme pain due to my wisdom tooth coming in and after reading her reviews, I inquired about an appointment online. The receptionist called me as soon as they opened! They fit me in the same day and were extremely welcoming. I get severe anxiety when going to the dentist so I truly appreciated how patient and caring Dr. Pyon and her staff were. They all kept reassuring me and making sure I was comfortable before beginning the procedure. Dr. Pyon works fast. My wisdom tooth was removed and the procedure was over before I knew it. Many dentists are rough when working but Dr. Pyon is very gentle. So gentle that I was able to go to back work right after having my wisdom tooth extracted. I’m so so glad I found her and I’ll continue to go to her for my dental needs.

Katie F. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Best teeth cleaning I’ve ever had! Very quick, painless (because of numbing gel applied first!) and thorough. I first came to Dr. Pyon’s office for a root canal several months ago and that was also a very good experience with absolutely no issues to follow. I have been living in NYC for eight years and just now stopped going all the way back home for my cleanings because I have discovered Dr. Pyon. She and her team are wonderful!

Noah Reiss (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Pyon is a very talented and caring dentist. She took the time to explain everything in a clear and understandable way. Her offices were very nice and convenient to my office (in midtown). I have been to her several times so far and always have a great experience. I’m glad I switched to her from my old dentist.

Cristy R. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Pyon has been my dentist for the past 3 years and she’s always very friendly and very professional. I used to feel nervous going to the dentist but after my first visit with Dr. Pyon, I havent felt those nerves. I know I’m in good hands with her and her team. Today I went for a cleaning and everything went smooth and fast.

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


Highly recommend, Dr.Pyon is very personable and knowledgeable. I went to get a cleaning and was very satisfied, she took her time and made me feel comfortable. I really liked that she explained my treatment plan in a way that was easy to understand. Not to forget about her staff who where very accommodating. Ildar was very helpful and clarified all my payment questions. It is very important for me to feel like I am in good hands, which I was. Once I stepped into the exam room Yari, the assistant, took my x-ray and was very patient with me. Overall my experience with Dr.Pyon and her staff was pleasant and satisfying. I will definitely recommend friends and family members.
