Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Shapiro is easily the best dentist I’ve had. It’s rare to find a dentist that takes their time with you and explains everything they are doing / makes it clear to you what your options are and the pros and cons of each. Last year my insurance changed and I made the mistake of seeing another dentist, and it was a brutal reminder of how most dentists treat patients (spend 5-10 minutes with you, rush everything, try to upsell you with unnecessary treatments.) Even though she’s no longer in-network for my insurance I came back to Dr. Shapiro this year and am so much happier! Also, she went above and beyond with COVID precautions at her office, even installing a new air filtration system, to make patients feel safe.

She is a fantastic dentist. I have been a client for many years. She has done cosmetic work as well as my teeth cleanings. She always exceeds my expectations. She communicates well and is always concerned about what is best for me. I have had many dentists over my years and she is the best!

Dr. Shapiro (and her entire practice) are simply outstanding at everything they do! I’ve been using them for almost five years after finding her on ZocDoc and cannot recommend her practice more highly. She and her assistants take their time, do a wonderful job at explaining what they’re doing, and are always looking out for your comfort. Great hours too. If you’re looking for your next (and last) dentist, Dr. Shapiro is the way to go!

I just had a dental appointment with Dr. Yelena Shapiro in Manhattan and honestly she is the best dentist I’ve ever had. She explained EVERYTHING, including going through my x-rays with me, telling me how things likely happened to my teeth, and why she was doing everything she was doing. She even stayed longer to give me a cleaning! She was so kind and smart and wonderful. I felt like she was absolutely doing her best to help me in every way she could. She even actively tried to figure out how expensive everything would be before we started when she saw that I was anxious about money, even though insurance isn’t her forte! Ken, who does admin and insurance, is a SUPERSTAR genius and a delight. Ken is so wonderful at helping you understand your insurance, and even gave me some helpful hints about how to set up an HSA in the future. We kept getting sidetracked because we had so much fun talking to each other! He is such a curious, wonderful person, and he’s a ton of fun to talk about astrophysics with! I HIGHLY recommend this practice. If you have any thoughts about going to a new dentist in Manhattan, GO TO DR. SHAPIRO.

Dr. Shapiro and her staff are incredible! Couldn’t recommend them more highly. She is extremely knowledgeable and caring, always remembering the little details about her patients. Appointments are flexible and quick, and Ken, who manages the offices, is great about helping you keep up with your regular schedule so you never miss a cleaning. They make going to the dentist feel like a treat, not a chore (or worse). You won’t be disappointed!

Dr Shapiro is the best dentist I’ve ever had. She is friendly and her passion is infectious, she helps you understand your teeth and I’ve taken better care of them as a result. Have been seeing her for 2 years now and I actually look forward to my visits. Highly recommended!

Alysa M. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shapiro is awesome. She is certainly skilled in her profession and does a great job informing her patients of exactly what she is doing and why. I’ve only been once and while the wait time was completely ridiculous (45 mins!), my visit with her almost entirely made up for it. I’ve even recommended her to everyone I know 🙂 I’ll definitely be back.

Dr. Shapiro has gone above and beyond in helping me with a broken front tooth. It was such a traumatic experience and she took the time to explain the process and has been meticulous, comforting and just so wonderful in every aspect. Her bedside manner is unmatched and she keeps going until the whole process is literally perfect. She kept adjusting the temporary tooth and also made sure that the final product was the perfect fit. I was always uneasy around dentists, but this experience with Dr. Shapiro and her staff has exceeded all of my expectations. They have done a great job with COVID precautions. I felt safe and comfortable.

All you want in a dentist is someone who is skilled and honest. Dr. Shapiro is both. I’ve had experiences where dentists recommend unnecessary treatments, and she has always taken a conservative approach to my dentistry. She is more concerned with preventative care than just charging me for arbitrary work. When she does do work, my teeth look amazingly healthy. I also went to her for Invisalign. I didn’t have a major issue but had a few teeth I wanted straighter. Many dentists wouldn’t take my case because it was more intricate and refinement. My results were amazing and I am very happen with them. There’s no one else I’d go to in nyc. Best service and prices. I’m also not a “friend or staff” as alleged on this thread.

Dr.Shapiro is very sensitive to my general dread and fear of dental procedures. She is also a perfectionist when it comes to selecting the perfect matching shade for a crown or curve of a veneer. At the same time she is practical and can advise on the best way to proceed given budget and insurance concerns. 5 Stars!!

Dr. Shapiro is THE BEST dentist and specialist. Since day one I visited her she was kind, professional and honest. I had pretty traumatic experiences in the last with other dentists and she help me believe and showed me I was in good hands and she showed me options. Her work in impecable! Also, her staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. I recommend her with my eyes closed.

Dr. Shapiro is very kind and professional and at the same time very bubbly. She listens to all your concerns and then recommends the best possible procedure. Every time when I have appointments with her and after leaving her office, I feel like as if I visited a friend. Highly recommended!!

I am so glad I met Dr. Shapiro and her team! She has great bedside manner and makes you feel comfortable so that you can easily address your concerns. She’s very patient and listens to you. She is also very knowledgeable and brought up things that my previous dentist never mentioned but it all made sense when she explained it. I recently moved out of state but I am willing to travel to NYC just to see Dr.Shapiro. I’ve seen many dentists and you don’t come by a dentist like Dr.Shapiro. She is a gem. The office staff and Dr.Shapiro’s assistant also has great customer service. Don’t hesitate to book you next appointment!

My best friend in LA has always been my dentist. As someone very fussy about my teeth and dental health, it was a huge step for me to switch dentists. The biggest fears are finding a dishonest dentist who will recommends things that aren’t necessary, and someone whose work is sub par, which will cost a lot to fix. I feel like I struck gold with Dr. Shapiro. She is so conservative with treatment and only recommends things that are necessary. She is much more concerned with working with me to prevent issues, than waiting then fixing them and billing me. Her work, when needed, is also amazing. Aside from dental work, I also went to her for orthodontics. I had very small alignment issues and wanted Invisalign. Two other dentists were apprehensive because my case was more about refinement and small changes, and they kept saying that they can’t promise results. Dr. Shapiro was confident and every tray we moved up to, fit perfectly, and I ended up finishing early with perfect results. Her prices were also a lot more honest than the other quotes I got. So to summarize: An honest dentist A skilled dentist A flexible dentist with exceptional customer service A dentist whose main priority is my health Amazing service (all of her staff is phenomenal) A kind dentist with amazing bedside manner And a skilled orthodontist I could go to any dentist in NYC, but why would I? She’s perfect.

I went to see dr Shapiro a few days ago to get my fillings redone and i opted out of anesthesia. I didn’t feel any pain at all!!!  She was super gentle and i was done in less than an hour. She is the best dentist you can ever have!!! And her dental assistant is super sweet. I truly love going to the dentist now. She even sees children! I have a 2 year old and she gave me a run down on what to expect and how I can prepare her! Thank you Dr Shapiro

I came to Dr. Shapiro after seeing a dentist in the city for a year who would always claim I had 2-3 cavities and recommend unnecessary procedures (when I never had cavities before in my life). She confirmed that I didn’t have cavities and has been a meticulous and caring dentist in my two years of being her patient. I’ve gotten Invisalign through her and she constantly goes out of her way to make sure I’m happy with the progress and results. She’s thoughtful and a total perfectionist -very happy to have found such an amazing dentist.

Dr. Shapiro truly engages you in your care and makes sure you understand every step of the procedure. Very friendly, energetic and meticulous in her work. You really get the sense that she cares about getting the best outcomes for you. Receptionist and dental assistant were also very warm and detail-oriented.

I have the most sensitive teeth and Dr. Shapiro is the most understanding dentist I’ve ever had. She flexes her approach to get me through my visits with the least discomfort. Overall, she’s super knowledge and has great bedside manner, and I thoroughly enjoy my visits as a result. Highly recommend!

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


Very professional dentist with great bed-side manner. She takes the time to explain what she is doing and why and give you options. I also found her to be very fair and honest, only recommending what was needed and not the unnecessary extras. Great assistant and staff, and has weekend appointments too. Highly recommended.

Dr Shapiro is the best dentist I’ve ever had. Never tries to sell to you, super gentle, genuinely kind and delightful. Before here, I’d been burned by a few NYC dentists who were more like salesmen, or who were like butchers while conducting work. I was genuinely scared of the dentist until I found Dr Shapiro. Highly recommend going to her.

Dr. Shapiro is just great! She’s so kind, bubbly, and makes you feel so comfortable. My last visit was an oral surgery and she spent the whole time giving me travel recommendations for my upcoming trip. She’s super knowledgeable and straight to the point. If you’re looking for a new dentist, she’s your gal!

Phillip Zhang (Source: Google)


Dr. Shapiro has been my dentist for years. I always feel like she’s looking out for me, and appreciate her use of gentle (but effective) techniques. I’ve never dreaded an appointment, and tend to leave the dentist’s office in a better mood than when I came in. Highly recommended.

I couldn’t possibly say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Shapiro. She was professional, compassionate and very comforting. The dental work she completed for me was not only pain free, but it exceeded my expectations! She was thorough in her consultation and delivery of service. The staff at Dr. Shapiro’s office is kind and courteous. I highly recommend this Doctor!

I chipped my front tooth in a biking accident and was so thrilled to get an appointment the day after the accident! Dr. Shapiro and her team were so incredibly kind and were able to make a traumatic experience light and and optimistic. My tooth looks amazing and I already made the switch to Dr. Shapiro’s office for all my dental needs.

I absolutely love Dr. Shapiro!! She was absolutely heaven sent in the timing I when I needed. Ever since, recommending her is always a guarantee-my family and friends who followed my recommendation love her just as I and she has turned around Dental Office stigmas or turnoffs. Thank You Dr. Shapiro-I appreciate you!!
