Dr.Poiman is not only an excellent dentist, extremely knowledgeable, and highly skilled in the latest techniques and innovative dental technology, but also a very patient, friendly and gentle person. He provides the best techniques in laser dentistry with a caring attitude during dental procedures to his patients. His office is very well run, sufficiently modern, and perfectly clean. The staff is very efficient, diligent and well organized. He used to hold the bar high in his work and his team is as well. If you are looking for a wonderful dentist, I would highly recommend Dr.Poiman to you.

The doctor has a gentle touch and an amazing bed side manner. I was extremely impressed how he handled my nervousness as he explained he needed to fix 6 teeth. His precision and accuracy made me feel like I was in his chair for 5 minutes. I was at ease while his friendly and very professional staff took time to explain each step. The goody bag was a great bonus as it made you feel like you had a fun day out. I highly recommend Doctor Poiman to all the scared cats, your children and all your loved ones!!

My husband went in for his appointment and being that I’m usually not too keen on dentists’ offices, I tend to stay away, but Dr. Poiman and Mercedes and Tanya are literally the best possible humans and sooo talented and great at what they do. I definitely want to get in there for myself next. Right from the moment we walked in, Mercedes took the sweetest most detailed care of my husband and even of me (I’m just the wife). She’s efficient and smart and made us both feel so relaxed and cared for— the kind of attention that’s reserved usually for family members only. Tanya was specific with her explanations and assured us of everything and told us there was absolutely no rush whatsoever—even when I asked to have her repeat herself. Mercedes checked in with us afterward and really went above and far beyond what I would expect. She was definitely responsible for keeping both of us calm and happy—she’s so kind. In this big city, this type of care is rare and precious. If you need any dental work THIS IS THE PLACE. PS— my husband’s got the best smile he’s ever had! Dr. Poiman’s work is nothing short of real artistry.

Dr. Poiman is phenomenal!  He has been my family dentist for a few years now and I can not recommend him enough! Not only is he a wonderful dentist but he is good-hearted, generous, extremely knowledgeable and genuine. His staff is also welcoming, friendly and great at what they do!  My kids are always looking forward to their next visit! Its hard to find a good honest dentist, especially in Manhattan, so we’re fortunate to have him.    If I could give him 10 stars I would!

Outstanding dentist! Dr. Poiman and his staff are skilled professionals and the Dr is focused on helping patients get the smile they want. He is considerate about costs and up front with estimates. He embraces the latest technology and is always focused on providing a painless patient experience

Irene Z. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I love this doctor. I did my fillings with him. He is the best dentist I have ever seen. There is no waiting time. The front desk is extremely polite. She will guide you through your payment options and your options. The materials doctor uses are awesome. But the most important point is the talent of Dr Poiman. He is the only one doctor I will ever trust to deal with teethes.

T. H. from Riverdale, Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to dr poiman for about 10 years and have had the best experience every time, and this is coming from someone who hates getting any dental work done. I’ve had my teeth whitened here, countless cleanings, and whatever dental work I need. The staff are always helpful and accommodating, also extremely knowledgeable. I clicked here because i was referring Dr poiman to my friend and I had to post this review because I was so upset reading any negative reviews, but take everything with a grain of salt because some people cannot be pleased with anything. Dr Poiman and everyone in this office is amazing, I would never go anywhere else.

I have been a patient of Dr. Poiman for many many years. He is gentle and thorough and has state of the art equipment. The office is very clean and welcoming. I’ve visited recently and they have taken extreme safety measures to protect their patients and staff during the pandemic. I felt very safe and in the best hands as always. James, the hygienist, is awesome; and Mercedes is warm, courteous, professional and super helpful. The entire office staff is very friendly and make you feel comfortable and at ease (I have a terribly irrational fear of the dentist). My daughter is also a patient and they have been taking great care of her teeth for years as well. Highly recommend Dr. Poiman and staff!

Dr. David Poiman is, quite simply, the best dentist in New York City. Aside from his considerable genius, he is completely forward thinking, his office uses cutting-edge dental technology and due to Covid-19 Dr. Poiman has made a profound investment in an amazing Ultra-Violet Air Purification System that zaps pathogens and virus transmission. His staff is knowledgeable and extremely congenial and it is a pleasure to know them all.

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


I have been a patient of Dr. Poiman for a very long time now He is just absolutely fantastic. All of the procedures that I had done were with the most care and detail that anyone can ever ask for. I had two teeth in pretty bad shape where others wanted to take them out he saved them and I am still walking around with them for the past 20 years. THANK YOU!!! I have refereed just about all of my friends and my family to him and everyone is super happy. I highly recommend Dr. Poiman

Dawn B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. David Poiman is very kind and attentive. He holds a professional demeanor, office is clean and stylish. Nicole is very professional and helpful and James gave me such a great cleaning. Dr. David Poiman spent hours perfecting my smile. He bonded and filed my front teeth and I LOVE my new smile. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic dental experience.

Have been going to this location for several years and have been exceedingly happy with the service provided. Excellent dentist and dental care – efficient and effective. Questions are being answered and treatment suggestions are spot on. Also relaxing atmosphere. Update July 2020: Excellent work at keeping the place sanitary with extra consideration due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Had my postponed cleaning and protection of staff has been excellent, as well as a little ‘disinfecting shower’ before leaving the dentist room to destroy any splashes on clothing that might be problematic.

Girish C. from Long Island City, NY (Source: Yelp)


I recently got my teeth cleaned and whitened at Dr. Poiman’s office. I have to say that it was best experience I have had at a dentist office! The staff was very friendly and attentive. This is the first time I was getting my teeth whitened and they explained everything and detail and made me feel very comfortable. I will be going back again for my next cleaning and whitening. I would recommend to everyone.

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


Rockstar! Soooooo glad I found this dentist in the heart of midtown. So many coworkers at my former job highly recommended this dental office so I had to try it! The dentist and hygienists are so friendly, professional and knowledgeable and have consistently exceeded my expectations. It took me almost six months to find a good dentist in NYC with all the unkempt/poor customer service “joints” out there…so I’m finally thrilled to report that a good dentists do exist here and you MUST TRY THEM! They are in network with my insurance and I always feel like my best interest is at heart. Thank you !!!!

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


Dr. Poiman and his team are wonderful. He provided good advice to me and my wife, didn’t perform procedures we didn’t need, was accommodating and on time, and was very precise and kept attentive to my comfort and pain throughout both procedures a week apart (which both lasted 90mm). The staff is super friendly and efficient. They have the success of the cabinet at heart. They have recent and powerful material and the place feels sanitized as it should be (which is not always the case from previous experiences) And cherry on top, he is covered by my dental insurance. I fear dentists procedures and had bad experiences in several places in New York and in France. There is no other dentist I’ll want to go to now that I know how he and his team work.

No matter how long you search you will never find a dentist like Mr. Poiman. He legitimately cares for your teeth, your gums and he will also help you financially as much as he can. I am so grateful I have met him. I consider myself extremely lucky. Most Highly recommended. Thank you Doc!

Jermaine A. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Nobody hates the dentist more than me and with that being said, I still highly recommend Dr. Poiman. I have been getting my cleanings and check-ups here for about the past 3 years. I’m an aggressive tooth brushing type, which I recently learned is causing my gums to recede. As a preventive measure, they recommended tooth scaling, root planing and antibiotics (injected in the gums). A man has to do what a man has to do, after a blank stare and deep breath, I agreed to get it done. Honestly, there was nothing pleasant about the procedure and the doctor had to basically hold my hand throughout the tortuous process of revitalizing my gums. All in all, he ensured that I was as comfortable through-out and successfully used his witty personality to cushion the overall punishment. He truly is a phenomenal dentist and definitely the guy you should go to.

Dr. Poiman is outstanding. He is conservative in care and only does what is necessary. I have been going to him for 6 years exclusively after a bad experience with my previous dentist. His equipment is state of the art and his team is top notch. Great bedside manner, feel very well taken care of. Today I had a new crown put in and a large old filling replaced on separate teeth, which was the first major work done by him since I’ve been going to his practice. Couldn’t have been happier with the results. He actually has a machine in the office to make the crowns, so no need for a temp. A+++, highly recommend!!

My wife has been a patient for a long time. She referred me last year, and I have been an happy customer since. I visited them 3 times for routine check ups and cleaning, plus whitening teeth. I love how professional and yet friendly everybody is, and how carefully they take notes and are able to follow up on progresses after every visit.

Haley P. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Always have a great experience here. Cleaning is quick and easy. The office emails and texts you before your appointment – very helpful! Dr. Poiman is very kind and very professional. Dolores is so friendly and does a great job cleaning teeth! Highly recommend Dr. Poiman’s office!

Vironika L. from Long Island City, NY (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Poiman’s office to get my wisdom tooth pulled. I have heard horror stories about how bad it hurts when you get your wisdom tooth pulled. I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised because I did not feel anything when he pulled my teeth out. The recovery was also very fast and not painful at all. The girls at the office were very nice and helped me get relaxed and Dr. Poiman was very professional. I will be going back to get my teeth cleaned and whitened soon!

Susanna Ronner (Source: Google)


I went to see Dr. Poiman for treatment of gum recession — he was excellent, masterful — caring, patient, available for my questions in the weeks that followed as it was healing. It continues to heal very well and has been very successful. Thank you Dr. Poiman. I highly recommend him

Michel D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first appointment with Dr. Poiman about a month ago and it was a great experience.  I have pretty good teeth but lately, the coloring had been off a little bit.  Scheduling with the office was easy, Dr. Poiman was on time for our appointment and he really took the time to sit down with me, review my dental history and listen to my concerns.  His approach to dentistry is ultra-modern, and he took care of my teeth.  I liked the experience so much that I told my wife to go see him for her own dental issues.  And if I can recommend Dr. Poiman to her, I can recommend her to anybody.

Natalia Oblonsky (Source: Google)


What a great and attentive team! I love coming to this office. Dr. Poiman uses all the latest advances in dentistry. I had a difficult situation where Dr. Poiman had to cut out a piece of the bone in order to fit the crown. He did the procedure with a laser. I was comfortable and pain free throughout the whole process. I am so glad I found this doctor. I highly recommend him and his team!

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


After my first visit with Dr. Poiman I have changed my whole vision for the dental industry. And now, I am little skeptical and concerned about other dental practices. Aren’t they able to afford the new technology or they are just lazy to learn the new and sophisticated ways how to treat the teeth? Dr. David Poiman is an extremely dedicated, patient, and professional who takes care of every small detail. His staff is regularly attending all sorts of seminars and symposiums in order to learn the new technologies and innovations. The facility is clean and neat. Check this out! You do not need the anesthesia in most of the cases because the laser in the hands of Dr. Poiman is nothing like your regular doctor’s dddddddriiilllllll!!!!! Second, your crown base is scanned inside of your mouth for maximum precision. Third, Dr. Poiman uses special paint for his crowns in order to make them look natural and harmonized with the rest of the teeth. And lastly, the whole team in his office works like a German clock, I did not wait for my appointment even a minute. To underline all of the above, I would like to mention that this office is using the latest technology and most of the latest innovations and they’re constantly updating these super sophisticated machines I highly recommend to use Dr. Poiman’s office for all your dental needs!

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


Dr. Poiman and his staff are exceptional at what they do. I got a teeth cleaning and cavity filled and let me tell you, everyone was such a pleasure to work with! He’s an amazing specialist who anyone can trust, and I’d be happy to recommend him to everyone. After a few different specialists, I know I’ve found the one that I want for life.

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


As an oral surgeon, I have referred patients as well as my own office staff to Dr. David Poiman for general dentistry work (which I do not perform).  When it comes to veneers and crowns for implants the man is a master. Everyone who has ever gone to him has been thoroughly impressed and has reported back to me with appreciation for the referral.  Take it from someone in the profession, he is someone you can trust.  Great combination of skills, personality, ethics, and a nice office staff.

Ning T. from Astoria, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Poiman is a phenomenal dentist and it would do other dentists a world of good to follow his innovative methods suit. He has set up a truly innovative practice in which you can feel safe and be pain free. His office is located in great part of town and the environment is very friendly and welcoming. Also, you will receive alot of free stuff like toothbrushes and i am still enjoying the most heavenly smelling lip gloss i have ever owned – come on everybody loves free stuff. Anyway, when you get that next toothache, think of Dr. Poiman and you will have a refreshing dental experience which may completely give you a new perspective on dentists

Awesome experience!!! Never thought that going to the dental office could be a spa-like experience. The office is absolutely stunning, the staff is friendly and Dr. Poiman makes you feel super comfortable. I went for a routine teeth cleaning. My Dental Hygienist Katya was so compassionate on top of being super knowledgeable. I had her undivided attention throughout my entire stay. She did an awesome job …highly recommended! I’m so glad I found this practice. Definitely an amazing place to go to especially if you fear going like I typically do.

Always an all-around great experience with Dr. Poiman and the entire staff, and they’ve done the impossible and upped their game to address COVID-19 with safety protocols as top priority. Always courteous, caring, friendly and professional. And this is from a person who was always terrified of going to the dentist!

Vero M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr. Poiman originally on Dr. Oogle. I had just moved to New York and desperately needed a root canal and lots of other work done, so I chose the highest rated dentist in the city. He me saw me immediately and referred me to a root canal specialist. After that, I ended up seeing Dr. Poiman a few times a year for the next 3 years to work on my bad teeth. I was born with soft teeth which Dr. Poiman helped me diagnose and understand, so I’ve needed a lot of work done. I was able to get the many fillings I needed and 2 crowns. He never had me do any work that wasn’t necessary, and I never felt ripped off. I trust Dr. Poiman because he is intelligent, uses modern technologies like laser dentistry, always explained what he was doing and was very patient and gentle during the procedures especially when I was nervous. He is extremely kind and understanding. His staff is as well and you can tell they all work well together. Before going to his office I hated going to the dentist and was sooooo nervous (I have a phobia of shots). Because of him I now feel completely different and very comfortable going to the dentist. My health has changed significantly and I honestly can say Dr. Poiman helped save my life as some of my teeth problems were really affecting my health/whole body. He also helped me treat the canker sores I would get during stressful times in my life. I left New York a few years ago and have seen 5-6 dentists in LA looking for one as good as Dr. Poiman. I try to stop by his office to say hi too every time I visit New York.

Carly H. from Middletown, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Poiman and his team are very professional and personable. He uses very innovative technologies that have helped my particular situation tremendously. I have had 2 crowns over the last month in which they prepared the crown right in his office! I am very happy with all the work he has done and to top it off they accept my dental insurance which does make the dental bills much less painful. Having lovely teeth that are less than lovely on the inside can be costly after all but my experience has been worth it. I am very happy with my new choice in dentist! It is rare to find a full staff as friendly and attentive as this bunch. I hope that my dental catastrophes will now be few and far between but if I ever do need anything else outside of my 6 mth cleanings (which are just as good as the dental work) I will be faithful to the team at NY Center for Esthetic and Laser Dentistry! I would highly recommend him to friends, family and the yelp community.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr Poiman and his staff. Almost everyone on my team goes to him now. They are prompt, thorough with cleanings and hopefully you never need any work on your teeth or mouth but if you do… they have the most state of the art equipment that makes it as painless as possible. I moved out of the state and I still come back to NY to see Dr poiman!

Shar Z. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Unfortunately my insurance changed and I can no longer see Dr.Poiman. However, I had been seeing him for years and will miss the services from start to finish. Everyone from the receptionist, to hygienists to Dr. Poiman madd it a fantastic experience. They are thorough with their exams and everyone is very personable. I’ve recommended my boyfriend and good friend to see him. My teeth are in great condition because of them and it’s the first dental place where I actually notice a difference in my teeth after a cleaning. Hope my insurance will one day be accepted there again.
