They asked me if I grinded my teeth at night to which I answered yes. With that an the answers to other questions they recommended I investigate whether or not I have obstructive sleep apnea. I followEd their suggestion and indeed I was diagnosed with a very mild case of OSA.  This may be the solution to my fatigue problem. I can’t thank Preferred Dental Care enough!

After a long search I found Preferred Dental in 2018. Lucky me! Great dental team here, though more like a family that cares about you. Professional, highly skilled, friendly and caring staff on every level. They make sure you have the dental care you need and do a great job of ensuring your comfort while receiving procedures. Meticulously clean office always, along with detailed attention to all necessary precautions with the covid situation. Highly recommend them!

I Purshaed a dental package on TIPPR after purchase I read the reviews. They where very harsh and negative. I went in expecting to have a bad expierence in a dumpy place. WRONG the office is very clean, new and very nice. The Dr. Kamdar was so friendly and did not rush me at all. He read my x-rays and was not pushy about me signing up for any additional work.Iriana the tech was great ,wondeful cleaning did not hurt . Over all I would def continue to use them as my primary dentist. I have no idea why so many people wrote such bad reviews.

John-Christian A. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


From the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave, you are treated like family. Every cleaning is a great experience.. I come in, wait is much less than other dental offices I have been to, I get treated right away and the work done is awesome. In retrospect: The most amazing staff, speedy service, and outstanding work done. My teeth will never see anything better. The best! Don’t listen to bad reviews go see for yourself. You won’t be dissappointed.

Preferred Dental Care has an amazing team of professionals. They always make me feel at home when I visit, and truly care about their patients. Their response to COVID has been phenomenal, including temperature scans, health questionnaires, extensive cleaning protocols, and staff wearing masks/face shields. Their office is modern, clean, and bright, and I couldn’t be happier to be their patient! Best dental team in NYC!

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


I came in today for my check up and I just couldn’t believe how calm I am today. Okay, Let me tell you my story about three months back I was eating and boy boy I received a surprises my tooth broke. I called in because my wife is a patient there and was able to go in right away. I went in and Dr Kamdar took a look at my tooth he told me that my tooth needed a Crown because it had some decay. The assistant Lisa explained to me why I needed the Crown and showed my a video at explained the complete treatment. The video was so informative I had no doubt that this is what I needed. I sat down with a treatment coordinator and the fee was actually normal for NYC the Crown was $1250 which in Brooklyn I was quoted $1700….so with that said I felt the price was good. The treatment coordinator was able to help ne arrange a payment plan and I got the Crown done. Boy this tooth feels great and the treatment went smooth. I love this office and I recommend all my friends and family. Thank You Preferred Dental Care!!!!

I have been a customer of Preferred Dental, formerly Park Avenue Dental, for about 10 years now.  I was referred to Dr. Kamdar by my now fiancee who had previously used this office for about 10 years himself.  Their customer service is unmatched by any other dental service I have yet to experience.  Finding quality dental care is a very sensitive issue, if u are afraid of the dentist, try Preferred, you are sure to enjoy your next visit.

I’ve been going to Preferred Dental Care in Chelsea since 2015, and I’ve never had a bad experience. The dentists, dental assistants/hygienists and oral surgeons are always so kind. The front desk receptionist is so accommodating, and Carol, who handles payments is hilarious! I had the most painless wisdom tooth extraction today and they had me out within the hour. I’m a bit uneasy when it comes to needles, etc. but the overall vibe of the staff who worked on me today was so cool. If you’re in the Chelsea area or an FIT student, please visit!

Annie S. from Far Rockaway, NY (Source: Yelp)


i bought a zoom groupon and i went to this office to get it done, first i had to do a consult, the doctor was really nice and friendly and the assistants were great they answered all of my questions and took great care of me while i was there, it did not take long for me to be seen. this place is very clean and they use the latest technology, there are flat screen tv’s in the office and they are really big on patient education and they do all fields of dentistry like veneers, implants, invisilign and same day dentures. the whitening process was like an hour long and i had my ipod on whiel i got it done so it was great. the hygienist was so caring and firendly during the procedure, she stayed by my side and made sure i was okay. The results after was amazing! i could not believe how white my teeth were, i am so happy whith my new smile that i can’t stop smiling, hats off to preferred dental for amazing service, i have found my new dentist!!!

Jelissa Bisono (Source: Google)


This office is amazing it has all you will need under one roof. The staff is extremely friendly and very accommodating. I have had a few services throughout the years and can not complain. I had extractions, fillings and every scary root canals that aren’t so scary any more. I have recommended all my friends and now I recommend you. Thank you Preferred Dental for an outstanding service.

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


so i purchased a groupon for the cleaning exam and xrays, i have not been to the dentist in some time and i was a bit scared , but as soon as i got there i felt so at ease, the receptionist was very friendly and i was laughing with the assitant who was very funny, the cleaning by irene was great my teeth felt reallly good afterwards and i saw the before and after pictures, i was shocked, the exam done by dr kamdar was very good he was able to explain everything that i needed in detail. as far as the prices my treatment was over 2000 , for root canal post and crown , but i did some research and see that these fees are pretty standard and actually lower for than most offices in this area, i was able to get financing and get my work started. i am very happy with this ofice and if your looking for great service with a reasonable price then this is the place to be !

Jelissa B. from Corona, NY (Source: Yelp)


So I went in as a patient because I woke up with a tremendous pain. I called in and scheduled. They were amazing Dr Kamdar is the senior dentist there and he made me feel so at easy all of sudden my secret fear disappeared. He explained my treatment and I had an amazing experience. Then I met the hygienist Irene and after my cleaning I have to say my teeth never felt so clean. I loved the way staff was and the office that I applied for a job. I was hired and have been with Dr Kamdar now for a few months now. Come in and check out the office, its amazing. State of the art and very friendly,

Robert C. B. from FL, FL (Source: Yelp)


I’m on this insurance plan where I have to select a primary care dentist, and with that office closed for the holiday, and the pain becoming increasingly unbearable, I contacted Preferred Dental Care – which is just a block away from work. I called at 10am, and less than 4 hours later was getting x-rays and a free consultation. “Bring your card anyway,” they said, after I explained my insurance situation, “we’ll contact the provider to see what we can help with.” With my sweet-tooth, profession and frequent moving I have been to a lot of different dentists and this was one of my best experiences. The office was clean and staff incredibly friendly. They were gentle, listened carefully and explained everything thoroughly. I left all fixed up and smiling! Keep up the good work 🙂

Teresa G. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kamdar has been my dentist for over four years and has completely reconstructed my bridge. He never fails to adjust until he and I feel that the result is perfect. But the dentist is not the only issue when choosing a dental practice. The list is: 1. does it have a good lab and laboratory technician. 2. Does it specialize in various procedures like extractions? preferred Preferred Denistry has special dentist for that — not painful!! 3. Is all the staff — hygienists and assistants– well trained and have been with the dentist for a long time. Warning turnover could be a bad sign. 4. Is the billing efficient and helpful and is the price good. I’ve looked all over New York with this list and all the boxes tick for Preferred Denistry. They are even open on Saturday for a quick repairs. I’ve had lots of dental services all over the world including the United States– San Francisco, the Midwest, and various places in New York– high end in South Africa. This is by far the best.

Zoë H. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve switched to this dentist fully because I love the way they run the business. I don’t know why there’s such bad reviews! Every time I go the staff is super professional and friendly. You need to make an appointment to be seen immediately, which is completely understandable. My experiences have been wonderful so far. I’ve had 2 wisdom teeth extractions and a braces consult and all times I’ve gone everything went smoothly. I don’t have full coverage insurance so I do have to pay a deductible which wasn’t that much honestly so I don’t know why people are so mad on Yelp. There are no private rooms which is a tad bit distracting but you get used to it. Literally lol, the procedures and cleanings being performed are visible by every other patient. It doesn’t bother me but some people may like their privacy. Anyway, my wisdom tooth extractions were performed very nicely and healed quickly, they gave me a free ice pack and some floss and a toothbrush. The doctors and hygienists are all super friendly! Definitely go to this dentist, you will love it!

I don’t think anyone looks forward to going to the dentist but Preferred Dental Care is the place you want to go! They have an amazing staff and make you feel like you are at home. The dentists pay attention to every detail and make sure you feel no pain. They make the experience as smooth as possible and its the place to be if you want anything fixed! I love them!

Cesar Bisono (Source: Google)


I always recommend Dr. Kamdar and Preferred Dental Care! They always take good care of me and always look for the best possible treatments! NO BANDAIDS!!! If your looking for a place that actually cares about your well being by taking the time to explain and educate you on your overall oral health, you MUST go to Preferred Dental Care! Staff is Awesome! Thank you for helping me!!!

Merima M. from Astoria, NY (Source: Yelp)


I cannot stop smiling! I got six beautiful crowns done on my front teeth by Dr. Kamdar. They look so natural and I cannot stop smiling. The whole process was smooth and Dr. Kamdar is one amazing dentist. His work is absolutely great. One of his dental assistants, Glendali, is so gentle and such a carrying person – she takes pride in her work. I also had a deep cleaning done by a dental hygienist Cheng Lin Lin – amazing work as well. I was a bit skeptical having deep cleaning done as I have heard horror stories, but with Lin it was smooth sailing. Next time I do a deep cleaning, I am doing all at the same time…she honestly makes it pain free. The staff is great and very friendly, especially Pavrati who works in the office as a treatment coordinator. As we all know, dental work can be very pricey, especially if you are doing cosmetic work, but Pavrati will go above and beyond to help you find the best payment plan that will fit your budget. This dental office is excellent and I would highly recommend it.

Stephanie Z. from MASPETH, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a very good experience at this office. The office itself is a very nice and the staff is super friendly.  I am very nervous when it comes to dentist ,so for me to find a very good doctor is important to me. I saw Dr.awad and it was amazing , no pain what so ever. I am very satisfied and will keep coming back.  All the staff is very nice and i definitely recommend !!!!!!

Karly V. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


i have always had bad experience with different dentists and never received the proper care. i’ve waited long amounts of hours just to get a simple cleaning. With Prefered dental, i fell in love with their service and staff. The wait is super short and they create a personal relationship with you. In perfered dental you are not JUST another patient added to their paycheck. Your family!

Preferred Dental Care is a wonderful establishment!!! From the beginning to the end, everybody shows professionalism, leadership, dedication,, personality, etc. They actual care about your well being and making sure your able to pay with options if you don’t have the money upfront. I will be going back again. Thank you Team for your work and providing me with knowledge!!!!

After not being able to get an appointment for another week with my old dentist, and having serious pain in one tooth, I called Preferred Dental Care. They were able to get me in right away to begin care. The place was clean, friendly, and professional. The doctors conferred with me transparently about my condition and options. I would truly recommend Preferred Dental Care!!

Aisha C. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)

The was no long wait, the cleaning was not painful at all and i was out in an hour. Everyone is very friendly and now Im looking forward to getting my dental hygiene back on track. Leaving the office feeling good

Dr. Kamdar has been my dentist for decades, from his small practice on the east side to the large and thriving practice here in Chelsea. I know when I come here, everyone will make my visit as stress-less, pain-free and comfortable as possible and that I am in good hands with Dr. Kamdar and team keeping my teeth and gums in good health. Thanks everyone!

Had a tooth extraction and bone graft done here. Everything was smooth, pain kept to a minimum. Wait time was a bit long for the first visit, but they did fit me into the schedule with just a couple of days notice, so that’s understandable. Stitches are out today and the whole thing took just 10 minutes from entering the door to being done.

Susan D. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


i was having very bad tooth ache on my back tooth for some time and i went in for the free exam and xrays that they offer, upon entering i thought the office looked amazing, it has a very updated modern look and it was very clean, the receptionist was very kind and answered all of my questions, then the assitant came and took me to the back where they took the xrays, the rooms are very open and i felt comfortable, because its not like you are by yourself locked in a room , im a little claustrophobic, the exam was done by doctor kamdar who has been in practice for over 30 years, the experience he has shows because he was able to show me the xrays and explain to me exactly whats going on in my mouth, the entire staff was friendly, i was scared of going to the dentist and so i did get set up to do a root canal with their specialist but i missed 3 appointments, the treatment coordinator called me and continued to follow up and finally i arrived for my root canal appointment, i had one done in the past by a general dentist and i was in a lot of pain throught the procedure so thats why i was hesistant. At the root canal visit i must say i have never felt so relieved the procedure was pain free! i was so happy and the specialist and her assistant were so nice and friendly i was actually smiling in the chair, i would deifinitely suggest you go here if you ever have to get htis procedure done because i can guarantee that you won’t feel anything, this place and the people are so caring and they really care about whats going on with you as a person, not like some offices that only care about the money, if you need a pain free visit you shoud definitely check out this office

Elizabeth S. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


i was having some pain in my tooth and i i called this office because i read great review about it. i dont like going to the dentist at all but after my visit i will be a frequent visitor , my visit waas pain free ! i could not believe it and the dentist was excellent , he was so gentle and explained everything in full detail , actually the whole staff was so great at explaining the procedures i need to get done and the sales clerk was able to work out a flexible payment plan that fit into my budget. in a city that is so fast paced its nice to go to an office where they take their time and treat you like a family member, i was smiling the whole time the assistants made me feel so comfortable and the office is so clean!, everyone at this office is amazing and there was no waiting. some of the vetaran patients that came in said how they missed the office and i was shocked to hear that because who misses going to the dentist? lol it was a great experience and i will be back for future visits. if you need a good dentist then you have found the right place, thank you to the wonderful staff at preferred dental they are the best!

Kiersten G. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I came here for an exam today and they promptly saw me. They fitted me with an X-ray and consultation until informing me that my insurance doesn’t cover cleanings. They could have easily cleaned my teeth, taken my money and totally blindsided me. I’m so grateful they handled this information with consideration and informed me before performing the cleaning. My coworkers all go here and love this practice as well. Highly recommended!

Austin J. Bartsch (Source: Google)


For years, there were small details about my smile that I just didn’t like, and other dentist offices were just not welcoming. When stepping into Preferred Dental on 27th St in NYC, i immediately was welcomed and felt at ease. Every visit, my treatment was explained ahead of time so there were no surprises and agyer every visit, I was explained any additional care that was needed. AND I even received phone calls the next day or two to make sure I was OK. All this to say, if there were ever a dentist I would recommend, it’s Preferred Dental.

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


My husband and I just relocated to Florida from NYC. We were saddened to leave the team at Preferred Dental Care. Their compassionate and professionalism were evident with each of our visits. And trust me, we had numerous visits since we both had ongoing dental issues. Dr. Kamdar created a 6 unit bridge for me; he did crowns on my husband. Dr. H. did crown work and cavities; Irene cleaned our teeth and we both had other specialists that addressed root canals, implants, etc. Suffice to say we entrusted our dental needs to this office and were pleased with their competence and care. And yes, the office is super clean which alleviated much of my anxiety! I also need to acknowledge the administrative staff with their ongoing support. Neither my husband nor I had dental insurance and with the amount of work we had done, we appreciated their compassion with payment arrangements, etc. Junior and his wife Jelissa were wonderful! And there were others who made accommodations as well. I have to begin praying that we will find the level of professionalism and compassion we experienced at Preferred Dental down here in South Florida. Having had traumatic experiences in the past, I know quality care. Preferred Dental is a gold nugget. They need to be listed as one of the top dental offices in NYC. Lastly, I encourage you to give them a try. Don’t be influenced by the negative reviews, especially if issues can be easily remedied. I was once told that I had a balance as well and a quick computer check showed that it was an error. It took seconds to resolve. Arlene Esperanza & Vicente Saraco
