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

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.

I met with Dr. Pyon for consultation and she was kind, empathetic and also understood my financial circumstances due to the ongoing pandemic and being uninsured. The staff was all so friendly. I had 4 impacted wisdom and I was prescribed antibiotic and painkillers. They scheduled my surgery at the earliest time they could. Amazing service.

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.

Had a dental emergency during my trip to NYC and had to find a friendly and available dentist in Manhattan. Dr Pyon’s office is conveniently located and they were nice enough to squeeze me in the next day. Nice office and nice staff. Dr. Pyon is highly skilled and has comforting bedside manner. Great experience overall!

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

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!

We are new to NY and had to look for a family dentist that was close by our residence or conveniently located with a good review. I found Dr Pyon online and decided to give her a try; mind you my kids and I have a phobia for dentists, so our first visit was not welcomed by the kids. Fast forward to today and my kids and I look forward to all our follow up appointments; Dr Pyon and her team did a great job in professionally handling all of our dental problems with ease. We can now safely say that the “dentist phobia” is a thing of the past. Thank you Dr Pyon for delivering excellent service for me and my family. Vinaka

I have enjoyed an extremely professional experience ,a perfect combination of technical skill with a sincere caring personal touch.The office is welcoming and immaculate .Dr Pyons pain-free light touch working seamlessly together with her skilled team to ensure the patient is at ease. I have referred Dr PY0N to my Family members & enthusiastically recommend her practice to anyone needing excellent care…

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.

I have seen Dr. Pyon for the past three years. I first saw her in the second trimester of my pregnancy because I read that she was very good and understanding with pregnant moms. So true! I love Dr. Pyon. She is very friendly, thorough, efficient, and I never have to wait! I highly recommend!

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.

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.

Dr Pyon and her staff were amazing. I made an appointment for a crown (consultation) and she did the procedure same day (after consulting with me). She is very thorough and genuinely concerned about her patients health. All of the staff was friendly and attentive.

The front desk staff provided excellent customer service and have been so helpful throughout this whole experience, especially Dr. Pyon ! Thank you Dr. Pyon for calling and checking on me after my procedure! I saw Dr. Pyon and I would most definitely recommend him for your dental needs! Dr. Pyon is so caring and provides excellent bedside manner, you won’t be disappointed. I’m so glad I found Heejoo Pyon and will return if anything comes up in the future. Thank you all again!

I would never imagine myself saying that I love going to the dentist. I’ve been coming here for six months and the service is out standing. From the start they were up front about the prices and the treatment that I needed. I got a deep cleaning and then my wisdom teeth removed.  Then I went in for my second cleaning  and hygienist gave me some great feedback! Everyone is the front is always so welcoming! Thanks for having such an amazing team!

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.

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!

Everyone in the office was friendly. It was a clean, modern, and pretty space. They had a movie playing in the waiting area and the exam room which I thought was a nice touch. It distracted me during my teeth cleaning in a good way.

Stacie Anderson (Source: Google)


What everyone else says is true. I accompanied my partner to appt. with Dr. Pyon and was instantly charmed by the cozy waiting space, which, while clean and lovely, didn’t have that eerie and overly sterile looking vibe about it. It was classy and comfortable. Very convenient location close to the Village. Five stars+

To say that I was terrified of coming into this office after not having visited ANY dentist in four years was an understatement but Dr Pyon made me happy to be there. From my x-rays to my dental exam to my treatment plan, they clearly and thoroughly pointed out my problem areas. They were kind when I started to freak out and compassionate about the treatment cost. She and her staff made me feel like I can trust them.

Sam E. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


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.

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.

Ivonne T (Source: Zocdoc)


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.

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!

Dr. Heejoo Pyon is, to my opinion, the kindest, most decent, honest, responsible and trustworthy dentist around. The office location is excellent, the staff is dedicated, experienced, friendly and happy working there. The practice is very respected and trusted in the upper east side community. I highly recommend Dr. Pyon to anyone who is seeking a trusted and reliable dentist with excellent expertise.

I highly recommended Dr. Pyon. She is a compassionate dentist who brings comfort even in discomfort. Having toothache and gum pains while traveling could be a nightmare especially in NYC. My friend, her client, recommended me to call Dr. Pyon office in the morning. The receptionist responded courteously & related my needs to Dr. Pyon immediately even though it was a Friday (Sept. 17, 2021). Dr. Pyon took time explaining the X-ray and the cause of pain & toothache. She gave me information on how to care & maintenancen healthy gum to prevent future pain episode. Dr. Pyon not only treated my gum pain and I am happy to walk out with a smile. Most importantly, I am confident in her diagnosis & the treatment that I received was excellent.

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.

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!

Alyson S. (Source: Zocdoc)


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.

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.

Vintage G. from New York, 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!
