From first contact online through chat to several appointments with deep cleaning of teeth and fillings, to viewing pictures of his cosmetic work, Dr. Shapiro and his office clearly hold themselves to highest standards of talent and integrity, service and character.  When you meet “genius” it always seems obvious from that point on that everyone should be operating at that level, but isn’t.  Have the highest regard for the doctor and his staff.

I have to say that my teeth are something I value very much and I have had some insecurities when it comes to my teeth. I went to a dentist who I had been seeing for years for a consultation about fixing some gaps I had. That dentist recommended putting crowns on my 4 front teeth. I decided to do my research and go to another dentist for a second opinion and came across Dr. Shapiro and The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry. Thank goodness I did my research and went for a consultation with Dr. Shapiro. Not only was I educated by Dr. Shapiro about how damaging it would have been to put crowns on my 4 front teeth, but I was also greeted with kindness and genuine care by him. Dr. Shapiro truly listened to my concerns and made me feel very comfortable about discussing what my options were. I consider Dr. Shapiro’s work to be like an art. He bonded my teeth to close the gaps and my teeth look extremely natural. I could not be happier with my cosmetic results, as well as other dental work he has done for me since, such as fillings. I cannot recommend Dr. Shapiro enough. He cares about your happiness and wants what is absolutely best for you.

Dr. Shapiro is the most amazing dentist I have met!!! Definitely the best in the game and worth spreading the word about! I called as a new patient for an emergency visit and his staff was beyond accommodating. He immediately gained my trust with his passion for what he does, and I couldn’t have been happier with my experience. You will not be disappointed!!

Gene K. from East Islip, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Shapiro and his staff are the absolute best ! Dr.Shapiro always gives 100% of his time and expertise to his patient. He doesn’t rush you out and actually enjoys talking to you . He answers all questions and will address any concerns before any work is done. His ultimate goal is ‘patient satisfaction’. He strives to make you feel comfortable and his sense of humour puts you at ease when you are in the chair.He is caring and concerned for your best health and care.A true paragon of his profession.

Exam was very thorough. Dr Shapiro has wonderful bedside manor and makes you feel comfortable from your first moment. Everyone I encountered from front desk personnel, to the dental assistants, were pleasant and wonderful to deal with. Pricing very reasonable for cosmetic procedures. Very happy I choose to go to this Practice!

About 3 years ago I was searching for a cosmetic dentist to fix my bonded discolored front tooth. I visited a few dental offices before I met with Dr Shapiro. I was pleased just walking into his welcoming office to a warm, smiling receptionist who introduced herself as Dawn. We went over some paper work, she had taken most of my info over the phone when I made the appointment. Only a few minutes passed when a very pleasant Dr Shapiro came out and introduced himself. As we sat in his office and spoke about what brought me in that day, I felt as though I was speaking to an old friend. Dr Shapiro was so nice and genuinely concerned about my dental needs. He suggested his ideas to give me a youthful, healthy smile again and I am beyond thrilled that we went ahead with his plan. We started with his friendly dental assistant doing X-rays and giving me the best and most thorough cleaning I’ve ever had. As I was cavity free, Dr Shapiro went to work…he proceeded to not only fix my one front tooth but to work on giving me the smile of my youth. Over these past 3 years I’ve gone back to his office quite a few times for other work and cleanings and I actually look forward to my appointments. Who can say that about their dentist? I am so very grateful for the skills and services Dr Shapiro and his staff provide. Renee Meadows

Dr Mitchell Shapiro is at the top of his game. He is ingenious, creative and compassionate. I have a history of dental issues that span generations. He has been and continues to be a partner in my journey to have teeth that function and look good. I have spent my life in dentist’s offices. He is absolutely the best without qualification!

This doctor is truly exceptional! From the moment I entered the doors to the office, I felt welcomed, cared for, and completely at ease. Dr. Shapiro has gone above and beyond to be sure that my complete health and wellness have been made first priority. He is extremely knowledgable and personable. I never was made to wait. And if ever I needed to contact him or his staff, they were super speedy in responding by my inquiries. The office is inviting and his beautiful staff members are friendly and helpful in every way. Truly, I would recommend this office to anyone seeking answers to better their smile and do so in a very personalized way. He blessed me financially and it was a miracle out of the blue. I can’t thank him enough !

I had suffered with TMJ and the pain was there all the time. I had tried other dentists and finding someone to treat TMJ was a dead end. I asked my primary care doctor and he advised me to try Dr Shapiro. He took his time and didn’t push me into anything. He made me a bite plate . The day I got it I was in pain so I put it in when I got in the car. By the time I got home my pain was gone. I sleep with it now . Occasionally when I have pain I pop it in and the pain goes away. It had been over a month now and I am doing great. My advice is if you have TMJ and are about to give up give Dr Shapiro a chance.. Have faith; I did and am pain free. Thank you Doctor Shapiro!

I can’t begin to tell you how satisfied I am of this practice. Their customer service skills and dentistry work is remarkable. Dr. Shapiro is so friendly, and makes you feel right at home.. He fixed my teeth for my wedding a couple of years ago. My smile was so beautiful thanks to him! Then after that I chipped my tooth and they took me in as the last patient of the day after the last appointment they had already had! Absolutely the Best! I couldn’t thank them enough! I highly recommend him and this office to anyone!!! Recently I went in for a cleaning and Dr. Shapiro said “welcome home”… that’s right. Bc at this office, you are right at home. I will continue to use this office for routine care.

Dr Shapiro’s is most helpful when scheduling my appointments. Dr. Shapiro is a master of his crafts he listens to my concerns and then use his artistry to help me have healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. I decided to do Invisalign and am excited for the outcome ! My Invisalign was completed today and I have straight beautiful teeth. Dr Shapiro is amazing that he could make this happen in three months. Nothing shy of a miracle !!! He is extraordinary. – a fantastic dentist tunes into every detail Thank you Dr Shapiro for making my smile so amazing

Kudos to Dr. Shapiro for selecting Dr. Palmieri his associate, who lives up to the standards of his practice at The Center For Cosmetic Dentistry. I needed an emergency appointment so I saw Dr. Palmieri. Although a little nervous at the beginning ( Dr. Shapiro -our family dentist over 10 yrs ) midway I felt I was in good hands. Dr. Palmieri was very gentle, explained everything, and treated my issue conservatively. All around, the practice continues to be an excellent dental office!

I continue to be impressed with the professionalism and “patient first” mindset of Dr Mitch Shapiro and his staff. They show a genuine caring for my dental and overall health. The safety protocols in the office made me feel very safe and comfortable. Lastly, the quality of the work done by Dr Shapiro and his hygienist is second to none. They take their time to do it right the first time and with a high level of quality. I highly recommend them.

After many consultations with other cosmetic dentists all saying I needed veneers to fix gaps in my teeth unless I wanted to look like a horse, I was ready to give up on fixing my gaps as I did not want to deal with all the downsides that come with veneers. I found Dr. Shapiro and was impressed with his results on other similar teeth to mine that he has bonded. I decided to have them bonded and am more than impressed with the results, its been over a year and they still look just as good as they day they were bonded, definitely don’t resemble horse teeth like every other dentist told me they would with bonding. I’m so glad I found Dr. Shapiro and could not be more pleased with the results

My son & I have been patients of Dr. Shapiro’s for a number of years now. He takes pride in his work & I’ve always appreciated his no-nonsense manner. Dr. Shapiro always explains your options & he will discuss things with you before ever moving forward with any treatment. His patients’ best interests & happiness are his primary motivators.

Wonderful staff and Dr. Shapiro is The Best! For someone like me, having had so many uncaring experiences at numerous other places, it is always like taking a leap of faith to find and go to the next place. I have finally found the one! Dr. Shapiro truly listens, is gentle, and makes every effort to put a nervous patient at ease. On top of all that, look at the images – his work is pure artistry!!!

I have plenty of dentist around where I live but I only wanted the best (because I needed work done on my front teeth )so I did my homework came across Dr. Shapiro very nice down to earth easy to talk to office was clean staff was very Professional and nice and by the end of my visit Dr. Schapiro got the job done.I am very pleased. Thank you Dr. Shapiro & staff .

Maria Fusaro (Source: Google)


Dr. Shapiro is a very trustworthy dentist. I was unhappy with bonding on my front 6 teeth for years. Rather than provide a treatment plan without first seeing my teeth he recommended removing the bonding. He did an amazing job removing the bonding and now I am thrilled with my own teeth! Zoom whitening is also amazing! Thank you Dr. Shapiro for doing what you said, making me happy with my smile. The staff are also amazing. I would 100% recommend them!

Tammy M. from Amityville, NY (Source: Yelp)


This was the best dentist i have ever ever visited in my life. He took the time he cares. I couldn’t believe the level of professionalism along with care that Dr. Shapiro gave me, the staff was incorrigibly friendly and his work is superb. My visit was just supposed to be a consultation at first, this was the 4th cosmetic surgeon I’ve visited in 1 year and I ended up starting my procedure the same day. If you’ve ever even considered having dental work go to him just sit down and in 5 mins you’ll see why his reviews are so great.

Denise A. from Plainview, NY (Source: Yelp)


If there were 10 stars, Dr. Shapiro would definitely deserve them! Can’t say enough about him and his staff. Dr. Shapiro is so kind, so compassionate, and so knowledgeable. Truly the best of the best. He is extremely dedicated to his craft and it shows. Amazing work and an even more amazing dentist!

Julie D. from Smithtown, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shapiro is the most outstanding dentist I have ever encountered.  He is a consummate professional.  In addition to his exceptional work, he is a warm and compassionate person, who truly cares about his patients, inside and out.  His goal is always to “save the tooth”.  He is extremely honest and conservative in his approach to all dental procedures.  His office is comfortable and immaculate and his staff is friendly and professional.  I feel blessed to have found Dr. Shapiro and I would give him the highest recommendation possible.

Dr. Shapiro is the best! I have been going to him for 25 years and have only but wonderful things to say about him and everyone that works in his office. He is knowledgeable, caring and does amazing work. He truly cares about his patients by taking the time to listen to any concerns and has never made the visit feel rushed. I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.

I have been going to Dr Shapiro for over 20yrs. Always a great experience. He is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of dentistry. His passion for making beautiful smiles shows with his commitment to keeping up with new techniques. Always enjoy my visits. Office staff is always friendly and helpful.

Pat F. from East Northport, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been a long time patient of Dr. Shapiro’s. He is the best dentist I’ve ever used. He is friendly, as is his staff, but mostly importantly, a GREAT dentist. His work speaks for itself. He gave me back a great smile, back when I needed some front teeth work. That was many years ago, and it still looks great! He won’t alarm you or do work that is not necessary. He helped me get on track with my oral health, and it’s been good for years now. I trust his work implicitly.

Bob M. from Nesconset, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a problem with my smile, I didn’t like smiling for pictures any longer. My teeth were discolored, chipped and worn down. I went into see Dr. Shapiro for a consult, I was amazed with the way he seemed to take a genuine interest not only in my teeth by my entire well being. He assured me my smile was not beyond repair and could give me back a happy and healthy smile. After the best cleaning ever and x-rays we came up with a game plan to get my teeth healthy again then work on the cosmetics. I am now the proud owner of a new healthy and happy smile once again. He and his staff are top notch. I would highly recommend any one to his practice. You will not be disappointed.

Bonnie J. from Selden, NY (Source: Yelp)


I never thought it was possible anymore to find a dentist that truly cares. I met with Dr Shipiro 2 times. One to fix another dentist’s work and the other for a check up. I called him late one Saturday with an emergency I thought. He answered the phone himself and said meet me in 20 min. He opened his office to take care of my situation. He had a positive attitude and was kind. This you dont hear of these days. Thank you for caring. I truly recommend.

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


Had a great experience    New patient, had a dental emergency, and Dr Shapiro was able to accommodate me  for same day treatment.    The office staff was friendly and knowledgeable.    Dr Shapiro cares a great deal about his oatient’s health and happiness and it shows in his demeanor and decorum.  It was an excellent experience.

Dr Shapiro and Dr.Palmieri are very skilled and treat you quite well. I am grateful for their care. The ladies that work the front desk were patient and answered a number of questions I had about insurance which was super helpful. They’re terrific, like everyone I’ve met at Dr. Shapiro’s office. Sincerely CF

Dr. Shapiro and his staff are top rate And not to mention Dr. Shapiro is a wonderful human being who cares for his patients I went to a few other dentists before I saw Dr. Shapiro and they all wanted to do the most extreme procedures instead of finding the root cause to my problems and correcting them I had a tight bite and kept grinding my teeth to where my front teeth were wearing away and I should have done something about it a long time ago Being an experienced dentist Dr. Shapiro new exactly what to do and the best course to take He had me use Invisalign to correct my bite and mind you I had never heard of Invisalign and luckily I followed his instructions to the tee and over the next couple of months I noticed an improvement to where I wasn’t grinding my front teeth Next Dr. Shapiro recommend that I bond my teeth because I wore away a lot of my teeth and being more financially reasonable option I agreed and the end result was pretty amazing It feels like and looks likes my original teeth and we didn’t have to grind them down like what would happen with other options I am pleased and got lucky I used Dr. Shapiro and I am very grateful to have my smile back

Dr.Shapiro is an amazing, kindhearted dentist who really cares about his patients. I am a particularly difficult patient when it comes to my teeth due to my insecurities about them. Dr. Shapiro has the most kind manner about him and made me feel so comfortable. He is always completely open and honest with you and tries to be as conservative as possible. He wants what is best for his patients and wants them to be happy. He is not interested in doing any work that he doesn’t believe is in your best interest. Dr. Shapiro does incredible bonding work. I am so happy and much for confident in my smile after he bonded my teeth. I appreciate Dr. Shapiro’s amazing talent and truly genuine way about him. He is an amazing dentist and person.

Marianne C. from East Northport, NY (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Shapiro, he is a highly skilled, caring and gentle dentist. The office is immaculate and the staff is very professional. Also, I find it especially important to have a hygienist who is gentle and thourough, Isis is simply at the top of her game! I no longer dread getting my teeth cleaned!

Lauren Nelson  (Source: Healthgrades)


I am so thankful that I found Dr. Shapiro. I am petrified to go to the dentist due to bad experiences I had in the past. He was extremely professional, caring, down to earth, personable, knowledgeable, reassuring, understanding and honest. I am so thrilled to have found him and to finally get on the path to happiness and knowing what it feels like to smile again. His staff was really fantastic as well! Definitely recommend.

I went to Dr. Shapiro about a month ago after reading all of the great reviews he has received. We had a consultation to go over improving my teeth and getting me the smile I have always wanted. Yesterday we started the first phase of the work we are doing with Invisalign. Dr. Shapiro and his office staff make you feel so comfortable and welcome!

Lauren D'Alfonso (Source: Google)


Today, I finally got my smile back after years of being self conscious about my teeth. Dr. Shapiro is incredible and he aims to please the people, not just collect a check. As myself, being someone who is terrified of the dentist, I’ve never felt more comfortable and well taken care of. Very attentive, very professional, and everyone in the office is very kind. I would highly recommend this office to anyone!!

Dr. Shapiro is the best dentist around! First off, his office and staff are impeccable. Everything is immaculate and everyone is super friendly and welcoming. Dr. Shapiro himself is a gem. He is one of the rare few that truly cares about the well being of his patients and doesn’t treat them like they are just another appointment. I had been to many sub parr dentists prior to him and my mouth was a mess. The first two appointments I had with him, he did more for my teeth than all of the other dentists I’ve been to combined. He is so talented and a total perfectionist. You can tell he loves what he does. I’m so glad I found him and I finally feel like I’m in good hands.
