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

★★★★★

I don’t know many people who can say they love their dentist, I can. My husband and I have been  patients of Dr Kessler and Dr Vaiman for 13 years. They are caring and thoughtful in the way they treat us. I have never had a problem with any of the work I’ve had done. The take all of our concerns seriously and always put us at ease. I can’t imagine ever seeing another dentist. Thank you Dr Kessler for my beautiful smile!

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

★★★★★

I have been to the office many times over the past few years and have been treated by both Dr. Vaiman and Dr. Kessler. They have always been very courteous and professional. They have treated me well and have explained what my insurance would and would not cover in advance. The hygienist and the front desk are very well trained and friendly as well. I generally do not like any doctor or dentist visits but they make my experience as painless as possible. I highly recommend you check them out if you have any dental needs.

★★★★★

I absolutely love New York Family Dental Arts. I’m also weary of going to the dentist, but everyone makes me feel super at ease every time I go here. I personally have very sensitive teeth, and Rebecca the dental hygienist is literally AMAZING and is always so so gentle. I’m so grateful for her and their whole staff. I will definitely be bringing my husband and family here as well. Thank you, New York Family Dental Arts crew! – Emma

Today was my first visit to New York Family Dental Arts, and am compelled to write a review. I am the biggest baby about going to the dentist ever! Rebecca, my hygienist was by far the kindest I have ever met. She took her time with me and did everything she could to put me at ease and gave me a thorough, long overdue, painless cleaning. Going forward I will arrive for my cleanings anxiety free! Thank you so very much Rebecca!

★★★★★

Dr. Vaiman was great. I had a root canal done today. I was scared at first only because my previous visits with other dentist. The procedure didn’t take long at all. His assistant Renee was very helpful. This is my second visit here and my first procedure ever done. It’s been 11 hours since i had the procedure done and i don’t feel any pain at all. Just a little soreness but it was expected. On a scale of 1-10 the soreness is at a 1. But i highly recommend this practice. They are polite and very friendly people.

Krae W. from Mount Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Moved to NYC and needed a dentist. Had my first cleaning, went very well. That alone was enough to convince me I had found a great dentist. What put me over the top however was the following: Thought I had a cavity so I made an appointment. Went in and got examined. Turns out it was just a minor crack in an old filling. I could have easily been taken advantage of. Instead, Dr. Vaiman told me what it really was, and nothing to worry about. I was thrilled I didn’t have a cavity, didn’t have to get it taken care of right away, AND I wasn’t charged for the visit.

★★★★★

I’ve been to this location twice, each time my experience was great. I had to get a root canal and was terrified because of the Horror stories I’ve heard, i pushed it off as long as i could because of fear till i couldn’t take the sensitivity or pain anymore i went in today and i felt NO PAIN i was shocked because even my mother told me i would feel pain, Dr. Vaiman was great ! I did not even feel the needle used for numbing. This will be my permanent dentist!

★★★★★

This is an excellent dental practice. The staff are very mindful and gentle during procedures. Scheduling is very attentive, thorough, and accommodating. Doctors are very genuine and provide proper counseling by thoroughly examining and explaining conditions, prioritizing recommended procedures, and providing break downs of costs. I’d recommend the practice to any family member and/or friend.

★★★★★

I have been going to Dr. Vaiman and Dr. Kessler for a few years now and I don’t ever want to leave. I’ve been to a lot of dentists in my life and always switched when I moved, but I would travel to the ends of the earth for NY Family Dental Arts. Everyone on their staff is not only highly qualified for their position, but also kind and hospitable. You feel like you are part of the family when you go and you are treated as one of their own. They genuinely care about your oral health and have state-of-the-art equipment so that you have the best treatment possible. They do basic cleanings to cosmetic dentistry and make whatever you are having done as painless and comfortable as possible. I highly recommend NY Family Dental Arts to everyone!

★★★★★

Dentist and assistant were friendly and courteous and efficient. They worked together on my cleaning very well. Felt like there were four people working in my mouth at some point! Ha! They worked together like a well-oiled machine to get my apointment done quickly and send me on my way with great looking teeth and as little pain as possible. And she consulted with me on how best to approach replacing my older fillings.

I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Vaiman and his staff! The dental care I’ve been receiving has been outstanding. Everyone is very professional, helpful and friendly and they have made every single of my visits actually pleasant! Dr. Vaiman is not only super talented and incredibly precise thus making you feel confident that you are receiving the best care, but has a great sense of humor – I end up laughing every time!

★★★★★

This is the best dental practice I have ever been to. From my first encounter with Annie over the phone she was so pleasant and welcoming. On my first visit I met with Renee, she calmed my nerves as I had to get a tooth pulled. She is a gem. Dr. Vaiman is amazing. He took the time to explain to me what I needed done and he lets know what he was doing every step of the way. I’ve never had that with any dentist I’ve been to. Rebecca the dental hygienist that performed my deep cleaning as well as my sons went into detail and the importance of the deep cleaning. She also took time to answer all the questions I had. I will one thousand percent recommended NY family dental arts to anyone. After all i was referred, and so happy I was. I have finally found a home for my teeth. Lol! ❤️

★★★★★

I use to hate going to the dentist growing up. I kind of started to neglect going, but then I moved to NYC and discovered this dentist right in my neighborhood. They make me feel so comfortable and going to the dentist is actually something I look forward to now. I’m realizing the beauty of our teeth is an actual art that requires upkeep. I love this dentist. ❤⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

★★★★★

Dr. Kessler and her staff by far exceeded my expectations. From day one they were kind, welcoming, and accommodating. I came in to get my chipped and aging veneers fixed. Dr. Kessler is a perfectionist, and I am beyond excited to say I am writing this review with a very wide grin because my teeth look A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They look very natural, and the color is a 100% match to my natural color. She works with the best cermastic in the business, and he absolutely crushed the color match. I’m so appreciative of the fact that she worked to accommodate my demanding work schedule and finished this project ahead of the original plan. I would recommend to all my friends and family and anyone who wants the most beautiful smile imaginable.

Dr. Vaiman has been my dentist for over 20 years. Dr. Vaiman is an experienced and very skillful dentist. Both he and Dr. Kessler always make you feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable. Both have great chair side manner. The office is clean and updated. Highly recommend. Thank you New York Family Dental Arts for my beautiful smile.

★★★★★

I am terrified of the dentist, I wasn’t always scared but I had about 5 years of really bad experiences that were very unnecessary which caused my fear, for a time I would get so scared I would cry as soon as I got in the dental chair! I have one tooth in particular that I had about 4 root canals in and caused me to go to the dentist regularly for years with no answers and continued procedures that never fixed the issue. I had THREE different opinions and each time no one could give me a straight answer until I came here. Dr. Vaiman is so comforting and understood how scared I was to just a filling refilled (it cracked) and made me at ease that after asking him a million questions (that he answered without hesitation or frustration) I was comfortable enouph to let him finish the root canal and finally get it capped! That is a huge deal for me because I have been dealing with this issue for about 8 years and have not let anyone touch it in about 3 and trusted him enouph to let him do it. Not only was he understanding and professional he is comforting and treats you like a friend and not only tells you what to expect and is extremely knowledgeable he backs it up with his exceptional work!! Not only did I not feel any pain he stayed late to finish my tooth and then called me the next day to make sure I was ok!! Anyone who is afraid of the dentist or who has had any bad experiences I cant urge you enouph to come see Dr. Vaiman he truly is amazing!!

I have been coming here for the past year and 1/2. I am very pleased with the dental care I have received. The hygienist is very friendly and does a very good job cleaning my teeth. She has actually gotten me to understand the importance of flossing. Dr. Kessler is very nice. I got a few fillings done by her and she was very gentle. I do like and appreciate the fact that nothing is ever done without them checking how much my insurance covers. They are always very clear and explain to me that it is only an estimate. The front desk girls are very nice. Very friendly office and great dental experience overall. I am very surprised by the negative reviews. I have referred a few friends as well.

★★★★★

I’ve been going to NY Family Dental Arts for two years now, and I will be going to them for life. I have really sensitive teeth, and with every cleaning (Rebecca & Liz), they make me feel super at ease, and they do a phenomenal job. I have also had a couple of smaller procedures with Dr. Kessler / Dr. Vaiman. They are amazing doctors, super personable, and make me feel comfortable. I won’t be going to any other dentists in the area — everyone needs to come here! Thank you, NY Family Dental Arts

Marina K. from Staten Island, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been going to Dr. Vaiman for over 20 years now. I travel from Staten Island to Manhattan because I don’t trust any other dentist as much as I do Dr. Vaiman and Dr. Kessler. They are a great team that is always very accommodating, knowledgeable and extremely professional. The office is very clean and nicely organized. The staff is always very courteous. Both Dr. Vaiman and Dr. Kessler always make you feel at ease and comfortable. Thank you New York Family Dental Arts for giving me a great smile! Definately recommend.

Tess C. from Briarcliff Manor, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’ve always had a very pleasant experience here. The dental hygienist Rebecca is so kind and calming she always totally puts me at ease when I come and so kind and easy going that I genuinely enjoy coming to see her! Dr Vaiman always answers every single question I have, no matter how long they take or how repetitive I am with them. He really cares about his patients happiness and health. I always feel taken care of here. Not to mention they’re always quick to get any dental work done and make sure to get you an appointment as soon as possible and make payment plans for you if necessary. Definitely recommend, especially for new patients!

This is my 3rd time that I have been at this office and each time I have been treated so well with courtesy and decency by professionally staff. I enjoy getting my teeth cleaned every 6 months. She is thorough and takes her time to complete the task. Thank you so much to all of you. You work as a team to provide the best dental treatment for all of your patients.

New to Dr. Vaiman and just had my 2nd visit yesterday. If there is two things in life I try to avoid it’s mosquitoes and seeing a dentist. But I am so relieved with the experience I just had. After a, close-to-no-pain, filling session yesterday, where Dr. Vaiman took really good care of me, I woke up with no pain at all. That’s new! My whole family is with him and he/the whole staff is very professional and friendly. What impressed me the most is how good he is with kids also. I recommend seeing this doctor a 100%!

Sarah R. from Fair Haven, NJ (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I, too, am surprised by the negative reviews. I’ve seen both Dr. Kessler and Dr. Vaiman and found them to be friendly, professional, and efficient. The dental hygienist I’ve seen the past couple visits has given very thorough cleanings and has gotten me to improve my habits in a way that no other hygienist has. Finally, their office staff is wonderful. Sarah has been consistently super friendly and helpful since I started going there a couple years ago.

Randi S. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Kessler and the team at New York Family Dental Arts have far exceeded my expectations with their patience and compassion, as well as the ease of making my teeth healthy again. My previous experiences with dentists have left me with a bad taste in my mouth (pun intended). I am highly nervous around needles and they take the time to ease me through the process and make me feel comfortable. I also have become less anxious since I started coming here which is a miracle in itself. I would highly recommend coming to New York Family Dental Arts to anyone looking for fantastic service at affordable rates (even for those of us without dental insurance). Well done!! See you in a few months for my next cleaning 🙂

Dr. Kessler is very competent in the way she assesses the situation and does not second-guess herself.   It made me feel very confident to work with her and go ahead with her suggestions.  Dr. Kessler was excellent in explaining dental procedures and all of my options.  She and her entire staff were competent and professional at all times.  I would recommend her without hesitation. Overall a positive dental experience,

I had a great experience recently for my routine check up. It was my first time at this office and the front desk staff, the dental assistant, and doctor were super friendly and very courteous and professional. They all made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. Looking forward to my continuous care at this office.

I first met Dr. Vaiman two years ago when I was having trouble with an old crown. I quickly understood that he and his sister, Irina Kessler, were top notch in the dental field. The personalized care is unbelievable, and there is a huge support team of hygienists who are equally excellent. After an office visit, I would immediately receive personal follow-up calls to see how I was doing. When a job opportunity had me move several states away, I was willing to fly into New York just to be under the superb care of these two outstanding doctors.

On Tuesday, July 19th, 2016, I had my first visit to New York Family Dental. When I first arrived, I was greeted by the most friendliest of staff. They made me feel totally relaxed, because even though I’m a grown adult, I have a total fair of dental appointments. The hygienist and dentist were also very professional and informative. They helped me relaxed through my entire visit and I even made an appointment for my next visit. Would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

Love this place! (Ya, I never imagined I’ll say this on a Dentist office.. but here I am..) & my wife for the first time in decades doesn’t hate to go for dentist appointments.. No it’s not the clinic down the block if you have to or want to pay out of pocket, but hey, you absolutely get what you pay for!!! I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Vaiman, & his work, besides the fact that I now have another friend… I personally haven’t had work done by Dr. Kessler, but I’ve heard the same things on her..

★★★★★

Amazing family-owned and family-friendly dental practice. I actually look forward to the dentist now. From the minute you walk in, you feel like you are in a dental spa vs. a dental office. Gayle (sp?) and the ladies in the front run a very efficient office. Friendly and helpful staff, knowledgeable doctors, state-of-the-art equipment and helpful follow up. Dr. Alexander Vaiman and Dr. Irina Kessler have both worked on my teeth – cleanings, fillings (saved me from a root canal), and gum pockets. Both dentists and hygienists are kind, patient, gentle and transparent with insurance and costs. They thoroughly explain what they are doing every step of the way, even took pictures to show me the inside of my mouth on the big screen. Everyone asks if you are comfortable and all truly care about your dental health. I am so glad I stumbled across NY Family Dental Arts. I couldn’t recommend them more. Actually, I just made my Mom switch over to them.

New York Family Dental Arts is a perfect example of prime dentistry in a city with a lot competition. The staff at New York Family Dental Arts are better than any other dentists office I have ever been to. Dr. Kessler a long with her office manager, sara, hygenist and dental assistants are extremely nice and patient. I would highly recommend New York Family Dental Arts to anyone and I will definitely be returning!!!

I love this office and the staff. Drs. Vaiman and Kessler are just awesome! Dr. Kessler did all my dental work and I am so happy and grateful to her. The staff is attentive and helpful. The office manager took her time to explain my financials with and without insurance. She even offered payment plan options for me. I highly recommend them!

I love Dr. Vaiman and the whole NYFDA team! Cannot recommend them enough. I put off going to the dentist for several years (!!!) after multiple bad experiences. Pressure from an impacted wisdom tooth cracked one of my molars, and NYFDA had an emergency appointment available for the next morning. On my first visit, Dr. Vaiman and his assistant did a thorough assessment and presented me with a VERY clear and thorough plan on pulling my wisdom teeth, putting a crown in, and preventing future issues. Dr. Vaiman was very clear on the exact costs, treatment schedule, and what I could expect… he never once tried to upsell me and was more than accommodating of my limited budget (pro tip: pay everything up front for a discount!). Their front office staff was always kind and polite, making or changing appointments was so easy, and I was always seen right away. Dr. Vaiman is great at dealing with nervous patients – great bedside manner, always remembered what we had talked about on previous visits, and was always checking in on my comfort level and calling me from his personal cellphone the day after to check on me. LOVE him and will be recommending them to everyone I know in Manhattan!
