I visited Varano dental office couple of weeks ago for periodic teeth cleaning. I could not be happier with the service I had. I have been regular patient of Dr. Varano for years now. I would not even consider to go anywhere else for my dental and teeth cleaning needs. Dr. Varano is excellent in what he does, and his office is tops. Jerry Justic

After years of searching I have found my dentist. Dr. Varano is kind and gentle. He truly takes great care of his patients. He explains the exact diagnosis and procedure well and makes you feel comfortable to ask questions. He always makes sure you are comfortable and checks in with you frequently while working on you.

Dr Varano has been my dentist of choice for years. Clean, welcoming & the ladies at the front desk great! My husband & I have found a wonderfully gentle professional hygienist at Varano Dental. We have recommended to friends & family.

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


Everyone that I’ve met here is so friendly and accommodating, and they really take the time to listen to you and explain everything. Dr. Varano always greets you with a smile and makes sure everything went well and there are no issues. The hygienists are very gentle and make the experience comfortable. We recently switched to Dr. Varano from another dentist and we couldn’t be happier!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Varano since he opened his practice here in Garden City South many many years ago. I’ve had many fillings, root canals, extractions and crowns over those years done by Dr. Varano. I’ve never had any pain during or after any of the procedures he has done for me. He even numbs you gums prior to giving you a Novocain shot so the discomfort is minimal. He has a very delicate manner of working and such excellent results that I wouldn’t even think of seeing another dentist.

Dr. Varano and his staff are pleasant, patient, and educated.  I’ve had many bad dental experiences in other offices (closer to my new home), but always wind up coming back here.  Even with the distance, Dr. Varano’s office is worth it for the bedside manner and knowledge, alone.  I always leave that office feeling fantastic, regardless of what procedure was performed, and have never experience any sort of pain or discomfort- whether for a cavity fill or a wisdom tooth extraction.  Whenever I enter the office, I feel like Dr. Varano and his staff know exactly who I am- asking about my son and life events, as well as extensive (almost intuitive) knowledge about my dental history, which is all impressive, considering there are years between visits, in some cases!  They take the time to explain procedures and answer questions.  I can’t recommend this office enough!

Gabrielle M. from West Hempstead, NY (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely fantastic. Will never visit another dentist office. The assistants and hygentists are very friendly. you never really know what to expect at dentist offices but all went perfect at this one. The dentist was personable, and made my experience very comfortable. I will be back soon and I will recommend this office to all. My mom will be switching to this office as well. A+ for varano and his team !!

I have to give 5 stars for Dr Varano and his office staff. From the moment you walk in and throughout your visit there, everyone is super friendly & patient. Dr Varano is skilled, professional and patient. I get my dental cleaning 3 times a year and Invisalign, highly highly recommend this office to anyone, love them.

Dr. Varano and the staff are great. They always make sure you are very comfortable during any procedures, even during things like xrays. Something that really stood out for me was Dr. Varano’s attention to detail. We had a crown built by a lab and when it came in it fit perfectly (perfectly exact measurements were taken, but that’s not the point of the story.) Even though the fit was perfect, there was a small area near the gums that just wasn’t perfect and the doc sent it back to the lab to fix it. I have been to a lot of dentists over the years, and I am not sure that many of them would have sent it back. Overall I am very pleased with my experience here and look forward to many years of healthy teeth.

The best dentist I’ve ever had. Dr. Varano puts patient comfort above everything. During any procedure, he always making sure you’re okay and not feeling any pain. And the quality of his work speaks for its self! He also has one of the most polite and knowledgeable staff, it’s always a pleasure to come to the office whether for a filling or a simple cleaning.

It’s so nice to enter an establishment that has a warm and welcoming staff. The office is organized and clean. Linda, the hygienist is amazing! The deep cleaning was gentle yet very effective leaving my teeth clean and shiny. Dr. Varano is friendly, honest and professional. You can’t ask for anything more!

Eric Levine (Source: Google)


Dr. Varano and the entire staff are wonderful. Dr. Varano takes on any questions you may have, and will explain everything very clearly. My favorite thing about Dr. Varano is that I’ve never experienced any type of pain from any procedure and that includes any novacaine injections. The hygienists are very knowledgable, friendly and extremely great at what they do. Lastly, the front desk ladies are the type that remember you and your voice, you’re not just another patient there, but a family member.

Dr. Varano has been my dentist since I was a baby and I have never been disappointed with his service. He was especially helpful recently when I fell and cracked both of my front teeth. I thought I would look like a hillbilly for the rest of my life but he cleared his schedule to bring me in the next day and within an hour he had reconstructed my teeth to look even better than my actual front teeth. I love them so much and I am so thankful! Going back next week for permanent caps.

I have been seeing Dr Varano for years. Every time I go I always feel welcomed and glad to be there. Everyone who works there that I see always has such a positive attitude and is an absolute pleasure to interact with. The electronic appointment system they have there now makes it so you won’t forget about the day and time you should be there. Dr Varano and everyone there make it easy and relaxing to go to the dentist. It isn’t just great service, its great people, too.

Dr Varano has been my dentist for 25 years and he I s he’s also my 20-year-old daughter and my 18 year-old son’s dentist since they were babies. My daughter had an unfortunate accident while at a sporting event yesterday that resulted in her cracking in half her two front teeth. Dr Varano took my call Sunday and assured me he would meet me at his office on Monday morning, Please note he does not normally see patients in his office on Monday’s as he does rounds at Winthrop University Hispital. Dr varano met and sat with me and my daughter – explained what all the options were, took x-rays but then proceedeh to put on temporaries so that she could return back to college. It was a very long 90 minutes as I waited but then went back into the exam room to see my daughter and her temporaries and all I could do was cry at seeing just how beautiful he made my daughter look again!!! Dr Varano is not only talented and patient but he is a true gentleman with an excellent bedside manner. My daughter and I appreciate so much what he did for her today and can’t thank him enough for being the person that he is . Needless to say, I highly recommend Dr Varano to anyone who is looking for a new dentist. Our suncrest thanks. Terri and Alexa Larkin #bestdoctor

Great staff and no wait! I had an emergency the other day, they got me in within a reasonable amount of time right before thanksgiving holiday and took care of me. Very caring and general while working in your mouth. Highly recommend!

It’s been years since I’ve felt comfortable smiling. They gave me my smile back. Is there a better gift? I’ve been terrified all my life of going to the dentist. Dr Varano puts your mind at ease by explaining exactly what’s going to happen and when. The staff all know me by name and I’ve only been there a few times.

Appointments are met promptly, with courtesy & all covid health etiquette observed. Dental assistants are knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, considerate of patients’ comfort, and strive to make patients’ experiences good ones. They must take their cue from Dr. V, who takes the time to explain patient problems as he sees them from exam & xrays, and then explains what procedures are best. He seeks confirmation from his patients, a calming thing as some dental procedures might upset some. All in all, a good practice!

I’ve been a patient for quite some time and if you’re in need of a excellent Dentist please try Verano Dental. The doctor is truly skilled and personable to every patient. The staff are wonderful and are extremely friendly and easy to work with. There’s never an issue when I ha r an appointment or an emergency. Great practice.

Frank M. from Rockville Centre, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have started using Doctor Varano in the last 6 months after being with my last dentist for over 30 years. Using a new dentist is a brand new experience. I tried using one in my home town but was not satisfied with him locally. I then found Doctor Varano and was extremely happy with his dental office, his professionalism, expertise and knowledge. You can have a conversation with him and get a good understanding of the dental procedures. His office is first rate and very proficient. I just had an emergency procedure that my long term dentist had done. Dr Varano took me in the next day and did a fantastic job getting my teeth back in order. I am extremely pleased with his dental practice.

David S. from Franklin Square, NY (Source: Yelp)


From the day I went for my first appointment to this last appointment Dr. Varano and his staff made me feel like I’m a part of the family. The staff is amazing and the doctor talks you through the entire process thats going to happen. With that being said the part that sets this team of professionals apart is the way they treat you as a person and not a dollar sign. I’m so impressed with these people and would recommend this practice to any one who is in need of dental care. My sincere thanks to to every person who works there.

Dr. Varano’s staff is so pleasant from the minute you walk in. His dental assistant who took my x-rays was to gentle and made me feel very comfortable. She explains step by step what she is doing in a caring way. Dr. Varano takes his time explaining what the dental plan will be after he sees the x-rays. He is so thorough and willing to explain and answer any questions you may have. He has a light and gentle touch when working on your mouth. I was so nervous about going to the Dentist during a Pandemic – I waited until I had both vaccines and everyone in Dr. Varano’s office was masked and being cautious to keep us all safe. You wait outside until they are ready for you to be taken into the back for dental services. I am glad I found this Dental Practice through my daughter and would sincerely recommend Dr. Varano to others.

I was recommended by my son who went for a cleaning. He said they were an excellent dentist. I went. I felt at home and relaxed here. Dr Varano answered all my questions. My first visit was to get a cleaning. It was done great, the hygienist was excellent. I needed advice on how to get treated. I chose a path.I Am still getting treated. Thank you.

Everyone in this office is so pleasant and kind. I was walked through every step of what was being done. Debbie was the first person I saw at the front with a smile on her face , I was already at ease and felt very welcomed. I’ve never had a hygienist like Cheuk! She’s amazing and very gentle but extremely thorough. And Dr. Verano was amazing, gave me choices and was not pushy, very honest and extremely knowledgeable. I’m so happy to have found them and look forward to getting my work done at this office.

I have been a patient of Dr. Varano’s for two years and could not be happier. He and his staff, including hygienists and front desk staff, are friendly and professional each and every time I see them. During the pandemic, extra precautions have been taken including all staff wearing masks, rooms being sanitized between use, and plastic curtains to contain germs in exam rooms. They send appointment reminders via text and email, and also call to make sure you’ll be attending your appointment. The hygienists (I’ve had Cheuck and LeAnna) are friendly, thorough and gentle. I would definitely recommend this practice.

We have been going to Dr Varano since his office was in Brooklyn. He made a special trip into Brooklyn from Garden City when my husband had an emergency infection. When he closed his Brooklyn office and just worked out of Garden City, we would make the trip to him from Brooklyn. Now we are in New Jersey and cannot find a dentist like him. His staff is excellent no matter who takes care of you. He is so compassionate, professional and will always go above and beyond to help you. We will make the trip….He is worth it!!

The entire staff is incredibly kind and helpful. Dr. Varano was very understanding of my concerns and patient with me and my anxiety regarding needles. He checked in with me throughout the procedure to make sure I was still doing okay. I felt he really cared. Sincerely the best dentist I’ve ever had. My phone call with the receptionist was so pleasant… it’s what made me come there as a new patient. All too often, people sound annoyed on the phone or make you feel like an inconvenience. I felt welcomed and that was extremely important in my decision to choose them.

Excellent Dentist, fantastic assistants and a great staff. I’ve always had a great experience when visiting the office. Dr. Varano is very caring, knowledgeable and patient. He listens and forms a dental plan of attack. He’s very thorough and explains everything involved with every procedure. He’s current on new treatments and trends and has new equipment in his office. It’s hard finding good doctors. My wife and I are very happy that we’ve found this practice.

My experience at Varano Dental Excellence has been superb for more than ten years. Dr. Varano’s skills are of the highest caliber; the routine maintenance, cleanings and related services are done in a thorough and careful manner; the office is run very efficiently and everyone, including Dr. Varano, the dental hygienists and the staff, are exceedingly pleasant.

Dr. Varano is the best dentist I’ve been to. He takes the time to listen and explains what he plans to do. He’s very gentle and frequently checks that I’m okay during the procedure. The entire staff (hygienists, assistants and front desk) are also super nice. I live in Queens and drive to Garden City to see Dr. Varano because it’s worth the trip. Highly recommend!

I have been to many different dentists for the past seven years trying to fix my broken front tooth. I work and go to school and finding a good dentist who could do a good job was harder than I thought. Dr. Varano has been the only one to offer me an appropriate treatment, explained the whole process since day one and accommodated my schedule to my best availability. The staff are very professional, friendly and gave me full support throughout the entire process which took about 5 visits. Overall, I ended up getting better results than I expected and I can now smile comfortably!! I’m very happy I was able to find such a professional and good dentist and will definitely keep him as my regular dentist from now on 🙂

Everything about Dr. Verano, his staff and his office is nothing but great. I have been one of Dr. Verano’s patient number of years now, and have had nothing but great experience having Dr. Verano do whatever has been needed to keep my teeth in great shape. I would recommend Dr. Verano to my family and friends. I consider Dr. Verano not only my dentist, I consider him one of my friends.

Dr Varano and his staff are friendly accommodating and helpful. His office is immaculate and comfortable. Been going there for many years and so glad even with insurance changes I was able to continue to be his patient.

At one of my latest appointments, I went in for a filling, convinced it was only one tooth.. It was such a painless experience I didn’t even realize he had filled in two cavities! I used to be afraid to open my mouth to speak and would just mumble for shame. Dr Varano gave me not just my confidence back, but my smile, too. For that, I can’t thank him enough. The rest of the staff are extremely friendly and knew me by name by my second visit. The office is warm, welcoming, and even before these extraordinary times, spotless. Thank you.
