Reviews for New York, NY Doctor of Dental Surgery Dr. Eliaz Kaufman
"Did my implant with Dr. Kaufman. I had a Wonderful experience with him and the entire staff. All was done professionally and with a lot of care."
"I had a dental procedure done with dr.Kaufman. I was extremely nervous and he did a wonderful job of calming me down, explaining to me in terms that were comfortable, and doing everything he could to make me physically comfortable. Him and his team were beyond professional yet so welcoming. I would recommend them to everyone if I could (:"
"Im giving 4 stars because the hygiénist is awesome she deserves 5 star , Dr Kaufman is also 5 star. Those are the 2 people in that office that deserve a good review. As well as Tamar at the front desk"
"The choices to find great dentists in NYC is not as easy as it appear. With teams of people multi work stations rooms hi tech etc. it’s modern dentistry at its best. Now in present time the Madison group starring Dr Kaufman made getting into the swing of things very for me and my workload. Itis a well run friendly empathetic group of professionals helping people. The major factor is for more difficult cases is to try to forecast workload timelines and cost. For me with more sensitive gum issues I didn’t commit to extracting all the 8 teeth all at once. Today I’ll feeling post op discomfort with the sharp edge of a tooth in the front scraping my cheek. That I should have sanded down a bit. Fortunately I will in December get the upper bridge completed hopefully within budget and fast! Overall it’s a little early to write a review. But I’m thankful this SHOP is walking distance for me. See you soon Bruce R"
"They makes you feel comfortable I love Dr. Kaufman. And the ladies that work still are amazing"
"Wanted to share what an amazing team 286 Madison Mental have! super professional, very patient, with a lot of humanity and understanding. always very available even on the same day for emergencies and provide you with the best treatments. Thank you Dr. Aviram Shmuely and Yair Kaufman!"
"Dr. Kaufman has been my doctor since 2000 and he is very helpful and he answers all of my questions. I have recommended 286 Madison Dental to several of my colleagues at work and they said very nice things, too."
"Eliaz Kaufman - thank you so much for your perfect work! And also keeping appointments on time with hardly any wait."
"Wonderful office and atmosphere and I cannot stress how knowledgable and professional Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Shmuely are. The doctors and staff have moved mountains in making sure my treatment plan goes smoothly and successfully and I appreciate them for being very transparent about the entire procedure. I would also like to mention how diligent admin has been in ensuring proper logistics for my case and I can't thank them enough for that. That being said, I am a firm believer that personal opinions about my character should be left to those who know me well and not based on brief interactions. I was slightly taken aback when I received unsolicited criticism from one admin member about my attitude towards the person accompanying me to my appointment (who I personally knew). I will gladly accept any comments about my attitude had it negatively affected other patients or the overall function of the practice but this feedback seemed to come from a personal standpoint. While I appreciate the concern, I would prefer it if the counseling came from a counselor's office as opposed to a dentist's. Besides that, 5 star business!"
"Professional, friendly, and have great technology in house. I’m amazed by the work of Dr. Aviram Shmuely and Dr. Kaufman and highly recommend them."
"I'm very happy to have found Dr. Kaufman. He is professional and thorough and explains things clearly, so that I can understand the state of my oral health and feel confident in the care that I'm receiving. I came to Dr. Kaufman with a gum recession condition that I feel is now being properly addressed. I would recommend Dr. Kaufman to anyone without hesitation."
"Dr Shmuely and Dr Kaufman are absolute professionals. The entire staff at 286 is invested in your well being. I can't say enough positives about the practice. Dr Shmuely has been my go to for years and will continue to be for life. Also to note, their response to Covid has been top notch. Trust the team at 286 to get it done right."
"Dr. Kaufman patiently explains the dental procedures and what to expect. He is very knowledgeable, accommodating, and caring. Because of these qualities, I feel at ease in his care."
"Dr. Shmuely is an excellent dentist, proficient in CAD and makes excellent crowns. I've been seeing him for decades, and my late husband was also his patient, as is our son. Dental hygienist Daniella has a gentle touch and accommodates my dislike of the Kelvitron by doing a manual cleaning.Dr. Kaufman did a great job on flap surgery, removing infection and doing extensive bone grafts, so that my implant could be saved. I appreciate the consideration in his having Mozart playing already when I walked into the room for surgery (I used to bring my own to calm me), and the follow up call. The aftermath was mostly painless, and I'm able to eat normally."
"From start to finish, this is a consistently professional, compassionate and high-tech group. The first people you see are the receptionists; they kindly take your temperature and handle some paperwork with a smile. Making appointments are easy and the receptionists will even help with dental insurance companies. Dr. Shmuley is one of the most TALENTED and HONEST dentists I have ever been to, and is equally kind and attentive. His knowledge base is vast and clearly he is always upping his game. He has 3D printers in his office so teeth can be created, on the spot, and I have never had to walk out of his office embarrassed about my appearance. Additionally, he really knows how to bring you through procedures in comfort, physically and emotionally ( I was truly terrified to go to dentists before I met him.) The icing on the cake are the other people that work in his office. Dr. Kaufman is the oral surgeon on staff. He too is very knowledgeable and progressive. And Igly, who assists Dr. Shmuley, has helped me a million times. Without reservation, I recommend this group. They truly know their stuff and have helped me enormously."
"Had a deep cleaning for parodontitis. Dr. Kaufman and all his are staff very professional and explained to me all the details of the procedure and what they would have done before proceeding. Very well done and no pain at all."
"I LOVE THESE PEOPLE. HE IS VERY ATTENTIVE AND CARING OF THE WORK HE PUTS OUT!!!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!"
"Top notch service from the staff and Dr. Kaufman."
"Exceptionally clear, kind, skilled, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Eliaz Kaufman. Yesterday was a consultation visit and I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Kaufman and his staff. Professional office around ,thorough in his consultation and a very competent staff. I really appreciated his time. Annie Xu, RN. FNP."
"Best dentists in NYC! I like them very much. Since I'm in their hands I forgot what is teeth pain or any other problems with it's. Very professional, kind, intelligent and using 3D technology makes you feel great with made in 1 hour tooth. No waiting line, high quality. They become like family for me and now for my all family and friends too. I get a lot of compliments on my work with my clean healthy white teeth because of them! Best wishes to all of you, Dr. Kaufman, Dr. Shmuely and Dr. Kimon!"
"The tooth extraction went perfectly; no pain at all. Dr. Eliaz Kaufman is an excellent professional, a superior dentist, and I would recommend him, without reservation, to friends and family."
"I was a new patient today and had a wonderful experience. The hygienist Daniella was extremely pleasant, and thorough with my cleaning. She gave me great recommendations for my oral hygiene as well. I was seen by Dr. Kaufman the periodontist and Dr.Shmuely for my cavities. They both went over my X-rays with me and were very informative of what my plan will be. I highly recommend going here!"
"My favorite doctors, always professional, caring, reliable, I would say the best dentists in the city. Dr Kaufman and Dr Shmuely are Doctors#1. The office is always clean, receptionists polite and attentive. The plan that doctors build for individual recommends options you can chose from, pointing out their suggestion but obviously taking decisions based on need and patients’ opinion. Flexible with financing too. Bottom line, if you need a dentists that will safe anything can possible be saved, then Drs will the the ones to go with. Thank you for your excellent service and wish you luck in all you do because your work impacts our lives. Thank you!"
"Great doctor! Very patient and knowledgeable!"
"Dr Kaufman is very kind and gentle and has a very soothing voice, which always helps when your having dental surgery."
"I'm very happy with my experience thus far, at 286 Madison Dental. Initially there was some confusion with costs but that has been worked out. I had a tooth extraction and will soon have an implant. Dr. Kaufman and his staff were courteous, calming and professional. After the extraction Dr. Kaufman took the time to explain what would be required of me in-between extraction and implant. He also personally followed up by phone which is unusual and impressive. Most importantly, although getting an extraction is not fun..I felt no pain during the procedure. Honestly, I was shocked. Lots of pressure as he mentioned but that was it. This was my first visit with him. I hope the implant goes as well!"
"Cant' recommend Dr. Kaufman enough!! He did two gum grafting surgeries within 2 weeks and they were completely seamless. He personally followed up the next morning to make sure everything was ok and that I didn't have any complications. I had been postponing this surgery for a while, and really happy that its over but also really happy with the experience."
"Hygienist is one of the best in NYC Dr. Kaufman is amazing"
"Dr. Kaufman spent a lot of time diagnosing and explaining my dental issues and treatment options, and I never felt that he was rushing to get to his next patient like some other dentists do. Both Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Yang provided me with excellent dental work with no pain, despite the extensive work that was required. Dr. Kaufman is a very caring and warm person, as are all the people working at 286 Madison Dental, and I highly recommend their services. The office staff was especially helpful with dealing with my dental insurance company. I wish that I had come to Dr. Kaufman years ago, as I had the misfortune of having my previous dental work botched by 3 other dentists."
"Dr. Shmuley and Dr. Kaufman are the only dentist I trust with my teeth. Dr. Shmuley is honest, down to earth and cares for his patients. He doesn’t rush and makes you feel you feel comfortable. Dr Kaufman removed my wisdom tooth and he was so gentle. He walks you through every step of the process so you are not surprised when you feel pressure or such. If you feel any discomfort you raise your hand he stops immediately. He tell you what to expect the night of the procedure and calls you the next day to check-in on you. They are pricey but trust me, they are worth with."
"Amazing and caring Dentists! As someone who is needle phobic and requiring several procedures I was made to feel at ease by both Dr Kaufman and Dr Shmuely. Great office! Staff adhere to Covid regulations Dr Shmuely’s assistant and his dental hygienist are wonderful."
"Dr. Kaufman is an excellent excellent dentist. If you are looking for a well-experienced, knowledgeable, and kind dentist, he is the ONE!"
"Excellent service. Doctor Kaufman is super professional and his execution is flawless and Dr. Shmuely is fantastic. Thank you!"
"The doctors and staff are friendly and concerns for your well beings. With the latest state of the art dental equipment means your teeth and smile is priceless."
"Really excellent Doctors, they know their stuff."
"These guys are the best in the city!"
"I had an implant done by Dr. Kaufman. He is honestly THE BEST dr ever !! He was sooo smooth with the procedure that I felt 0 pain. He has gentle hands and angelic touch. Also his assistants Annette and Crisbel are very comforting and are there to guide you through the procedure. The cleanliness is second to none and took all Covid precautions carefully. Overall the best experience and I am looking forward to my other appointment 😁"
"Excellent dentist’s office - always prompt with scheduling, good with insurance and the dental work is of high quality as well. I have been a patient with Dr. Kaufman for a few years now and he’s one of the best dentists I’ve had."
"I have seen Dr. Kaufman on three separate occasions and my take away that he, like the other dentists in this practice, are top drawer. Dr.. Kaufman is careful to acknowledge my concerns without condescension. He also is pretty quick when I compare him to the many dentists I have had over time. I trust his integrity and fully recommend him."
"excellent dentist! explains everything, very detailed, checks in with you frequently! does great work!"
"Dr. Kaufman is very patient, knowledgeable, and efficient. He's a perfectionist and takes patient care very seriously. I hate going to the dentist but somehow he always makes me feel comfortable."
"Great job, one suggestion is to have earplugs available to those who will undergo scaling. The Dr. did a great job fast and painless"
"Dr.Kaufman and his entire team are real professionals!!!Wonderful!!!"
"Dr. Kaufman was extremely gentle and informed me of every step of the procedure in real time (tooth extraction and implant). He then followed up with me twice to find out how I was doing/feeling. Before the procedure we spoke over the phone (I already had x-rays done elsewhere) where he explained in detail what was going on and why I needed the procedure. We also talked about my concerns for my overall dental health. His kind nature and expertise made me feel at ease. I look forward to working with Dr. Kaufman and his team (who are also very lovely) in making the smile I've always wanted."
"I absolutely LOVE the team here! I’m not one to give reviews usually but I definitely wanted to take the time to do so for this team specifically. They really make the experience so personal and you can tell how much they care about each patient. A very talented and special team! While going to the dentist isn’t always everyone’s favorite thing to do, they make it the best experience possible. I always love getting my teeth cleaned by the Hygienist Nishu (she’s the best - very detailed, smart and likable), and Dr. Kimon is also amazing (empathetic, talented and incredibly knowledgeable). They are fabulous at what they do. Dr. Kaufman is always incredibly friendly and personable as well! I’m very lucky to have found 286 Madison Dental! Thank you!!!"
"Dr. Kaufman is an exception periodontist. After visiting several dentists that could not help with my gum recession, Dr. Kaufman saved the day! He is an excellent doctor and his bedside manner makes somewhat scary procedures seem doable. Their office staff is very nice, and I would recommend anyone in the practice for your next cleaning or dental procedure."
"My most recent visit was to have gum surgery on the upper right side of my mouth, to finish from the previously done upper left side. The procedure was a breeze and Dr. Kaufman was excellent and professional as usual. Recovery was great and the follow ups have been great as well. Awesome experience as usual!"
"My Dentist referred to visit a Periodontist/Oral Surgeon.Dr. Kaufman was steady with 4.5- 5 stars.I then searched via My insurance provider to narrow my choices.I minimized 3 Doctors.I individually dissected each one based on *credentials*,reviews,availability,affiliations,etc.I wanted to start my treatment as soon as possible so I began to call my top 3 finalist.The gentlemen that answered the phone was beyond pleasant with patience.He was really looking into the schedule to accommodate me for a consultation.I think his name is Christian.Front desk didn't acknowledge my presence upon arrival because they were busy talking.Moments upon check in,a technician escorted me for X-Ray.The Female staff was very dry and sour.I consulted with the Doctor.He confirmed what my Dentist had stated.Nothing was set on stone, just possibilities of my treatment.No gimmicks.I felt I made a good choice with him.His professionalism made up for the unforeseen disappointments towards the very end."
"My regular chosen dentist made a referral to visit a Periodontist and Oral Surgeon. I looked at reviews via ZocDoc, Yelp and many other sites. I eliminated many based on mixed reviews. Dr. Kaufman was steady with 4.5 to 5 stars. I then searched via My insurance provider to narrow my choices. I narrowed my search to three Doctors. I individually dissected each one based on *credentials* , reviews, availability before/ after the regular 9 am-5 pm schedules, etc. I wanted to start my treatment as soon as possible so I began to call my top three finalist. The young gentlemen that answered the phone was beyond pleasant with patience and was really looking into the schedule to accommodation me for a consultation. I was excited just because of how well he took my call. I think his name is Christian. On Sept 1, I received a call stating if I can arrive at least 15 minutes before my 5:30 pm appointment for Sept 2. No problem, I can do that. Then I received multiple calls about coming in earlier, at 5:00 pm. It was pushing it, but will try. Then another call came in if I can come at 4:30 pm. That one was difficult. At this point I was thinking, I work and prefer the earliest before 9 am, during my lunch or latest after 5 pm appointment available. Did staff assume I do nothing during the day. Nevertheless, I arrived just a couple of minutes before 5 pm on Sept 2, 2020. Front desk didn't acknowledge my presence because they were busy talking. For a moment I did not feel welcomed. I was thinking and asked myself, should I get the consultation (since I am here) and call the other providers for treatment or just leave. Moments upon check in, a technician came to escort me for X-Rays. The Female staff was very dry and sour in her tone. I didn't expect bubbly but I wanted some type of, "I like my job" attitude. She took me to consult with Dr. Kaufman where he confirmed what my Dentist had stated based on the X-Rays I already provided. Nothing was set on stone, just possibilities of my treatment. No gimmicks. I felt that I made a good choice with him. He was noted to be one of the best so I went for it. Upon conclusion, one of the receptionist was providing a two weeks later appointment. I thought, this wasn't going to work out for me. I almost was going to take the appointment just to cancel it after getting an appointment with one of the other providers. Dr. Kaufman immediately intervene (as if reading my thoughts) and took a look at the schedule with her and was able to provide a date and time within a week. This was great. I can come during my lunch hour and not loose too much time from work. Dr. Kaufman's professionalism made up for the unforeseen disappointments towards the very end."
"Dr Kaufman was professional, informative, gentle and most of all patient."
"This has been the best dental experience that I’ve encountered in New York City in the past 20 years. I took a referral from a family friend and never looked back. Both Dr. Schmuley and Kaufman have provided expert level service and support throughout my dental journey. I highly recommend this firm!"
"Went in to get a few teeth pulled, and I’ll definitely be back for anything I need. First of all, the staff here is amazing. They welcome you in, ask you how you’re doing, make quick work of the insurance related stuff and are always prompt and make sure you have everything squared away. I found myself joking around with them which made the entire experience better. The office is clean and they were right in time with my appointment. As for Dr. Kaufman - he is, in my opinion, the best dental professional I’ve ever encountered. He explains everything, his bedside manner is A+, and he pulled two of my teeth in 35 minutes, with zero pain. The technician that was with him was awesome, I forget her name but she was the best. Whoever you are thank you! If you have been putting off your wisdom teeth removal because you are scared out of your mind (like I was) - seriously GO SEE DR. KAUFMAN!"
"Today I had 2 implants put in by Dr. Kaufman. I was very nervous having this procedure done for the first time. I have to say that Dr Kaufman put my nerves at ease with his very kind and gentle demeanor. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything along the way. I went through this procedurexwith no pain whatsoever. I would highly recommend him and give him a 5 star recommendation !!!"
"Dr Kaufman took my tooth out without any pain. He was very gentle, made sure i was comfortable during the whole procedure. whole staffs are very nice specially my Angel 👼 Best of all i have 0 pain, no swelling or any kind of discomfort after the extraction im come back soon for other tooth done ✅ Thanks love 💕 y’all all"
"Dr Kaufman was amazing. I am a new patient. I was anxious about two extractions but he was so reassuring and calming throughout the procedure. He called me the next morning to see how I felt. He gave me his cell phone number and I called him at 9pm for a non emergency question. He was very pleasant and assured me that everything was fine. The office staff is efficient and very accommodating. I can’t be happier"
"I’ve had several gum grafting procedures with Dr Kaufman and each one was a complete success. He’s very calm and caring throughout the entire procedure, I’d highly recommend this place. I’ve also had some on-lays placed by Dr Shmuely, and he is great too!"
"It took a Dr Eliaz Kaufmann to get me convinced to finally get a deep cleaning of my gums. His demeanor alone commands attention and the moment he sat and took charge of those needles to numb my mouth and complete a 50-minute procedure, I knew I was in very good hands!"
"I went to Dr. Kaufman for a third opinion of an issue with my gums. The quack I had been seeing wasn’t able to tell me what the issue was yet referred me to the surgeon he works with to take a look. Surgeon wasn’t sure what the problem was, either, but was more than happy to book a date on which he could start cutting me up. During my visit with Dr. Kaufman, he informed me that the quack I had been seeing actually used an incorrect dental term. He explained what my issue was and performed surgery to correct the issue. This man is a SUPERIOR surgeon. World-class. I have had my share of dental work/orthodontics/surgery. He operated with military-like precision. This was 3 years ago and I haven’t had any issues, since. He also took the time to educate me on how to prevent my issue from occurring again AND HE CALLED TO CHECK ON ME ON THE FEW DAYS FOLLOWING MY SURGERY. I can’t even take off a star for his rude and nasty staff. *shrug* I recommend him to family, friends and colleagues, and everyone is more than satisfied. A++++"
"Dr Kaufman took my tooth out without any pain. He was very gentle, made sure i was comfortable during the whole procedure. whole staffs are very nice specially my Angel Best of all i have 0 pain, no swelling or any kind of discomfort after the extraction im come back soon for other tooth done Thanks love y’all all"
"Finely I feel that I’m in the right clinic. Dr Kaufman and Dr. Kimon are amazing, fantastic, professional and comprehensive. Highly recommended!"
"Drs Shmuely and Kaufman are some of the most caring and comprehensive dentists I have ever worked with. They truly care about their patients and make themselves available to address your concerns- they are accessible and do a good job putting your concerns and issues to rest. You’re not just getting dental treatment- you’re getting ongoing support for dental health. They shoot straight when it comes to assessment of risks and whether or not a procedure is necessary. Would highly recommend."
"Dr. Shmuely and Dr. Kaufman are simply the best. Their procedures are not without the most cutting edge technology with are performed in both a caring and pain free manor. I had a tooth removed by Dr. Kaufman and fillings done by Dr. Shmuely and in both instances, was even comfortable enough to return to work the same day. What unbelievable experiences. Highly recommended to anyone looking for the perfect dental practice in Mid-Town Manhattan"
"This dentist is very personable, kept me calm and treating me very well. i look forward to seeing him again !!!"
"My first visit was great. The staff is very nice and attentive. Dr. Kaufman made me feel safe. He was very articulate and kind. I was extremely nervous and he calmed my nerves. Explained what I actions needed to be taken. I could tell he really cares about your oral health. Definitely recommend a visit if you are shopping around for a new dental office."
"Love the office, not a lot of people can say that about the dentist. the Hygienist Nishu is very knowledgeable and explain things like a friend. Dr. Kaufman is very professional as well. Can’t wait to go back for my next appt. Overall I had a great experience."
"Had a broken infected tooth that needed extraction; Dr. Kaufman has performed the procedure beautifully!"
"Been visiting 286 Madison Dental for 3 years, they're awesome. Beyond cleanings, I've had oral surgery performed there - Dr. Shmuely and Dr. Kaufman were both great. Definitely recommended, if you're looking for a dentist in midtown east."
"Great service, very professional"
"Very good and smooth experience. Dr Kaufmann is very caring and helpful."
"Have been looking for a new dentist for some time and was referred to Dr Kaufman. Could not be more pleased — Office staff are professional, communicative and helpful and he has a great hand, and conveys primary concern for the health of my teeth and gums-as opposed to needless cosmetic improvements. They can do cosmetic as well, but I want to feel I am getting an honest assessment of what needs to be done, rather than someone looking for ways to randomly use my insurance benefits or focus on cosmetics."
"Dr. Kaufman and everyone in the clinic is kind, careful, listened to my concerns and gave thorough explanation of the steps necessary. I haven't yet had much dental work done but they inspire confidence in me that will be very careful and will treat my dental condition well (as I am afraid of dentist visits)/"
"Everyone is very nice! plus Dr Kaufman can't say enough about him he makes you fell very comfortable."
"Dr. Shmuely & Dr. Kaufman are both excellent doctors with great patient care. I am a nervous wreck at the dentist but they made me feel very comfortable and catered to all my dental needs. The staff especially the assistants are very friendly, caring, and efficient. I have always been attended at a timely manner. I highly recommend this office and all the doctors in this practice!!"
"Dr. Kaufman and the staff are wonderful and polite and accommodating. I recommended my son visit them as well, and he has not had a bad experience either. Yes there have been some out of pocket expenses I wasn't prepared for, but over all they are great!"
"Excellent. Painless wisdom tooth extraction and recovery. Thank you!"
"Excellent dentist. He really took the time to explain my treatment."
"Had bone graft done with Dr Kaufman in 2015. Great dentist and equipments, procedure was well done."
"Best experience at a dentist office yet. I gave up my "prominent" dentist (who if I ever saw again I’d probably punch him in his face) to go to this office based on Yelp reviews. All the receptionists are fantastic, upbeat ladies with smiles and personality, Dr. Kaufman was positive, honest yet soft-spoken about what needed to be done as I had developed periodontal gum disease. He did an awesome job with the deep cleaning. And as for Dr. Kimon, he did a fantastic job shaving down some teeth and giving me a veneer on a front tooth I had broken; made them look symmetrical and color matches perfectly :)As for pricing - I’ll be honest, I paid cash, they cut me a couple discounts and did the work very well, in timely fashion; they run their office smoothly and quickly getting to clients and getting the work done "Properly". As for my prior "award winning" prior dentist, he would have given me the scientific evolution speech, showed me a bunch of song and dance imagery and light show about what needs to be done then charge me double what Madison Dental charged. I don’t write reviews; I think majority of dentists are rip-offs who love to overcharge you, so for me to write this should tell you - I had a great experience here with everyone, the fair pricing and the quality of work. Very happy I took a leap of faith and went to this dentistry practice. Plus, the receptionists are cool and actually have personalities.. makes you feel comfortable from the get go. I can smile again ;)"
"This is a review for Dr. Shmuely & Dr. Kaufman. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Shmuely’s for years now and I can honestly say that I’ve had all GREAT encounters with him & his care team. I had started out at his former office not too far away from 286 Madison Dental. Now that he is at 286 Madison Dental I have been fortunate enough to meet Dr. Kaufman & all of the lovely girls in the front reception area! I had to have a lot done in the past few months including wisdom teeth extractions, invisalign, 2 dental implants & a porcelain onlay. All were taken care of by both Dr. Shmuely and Dr. Kaufman swiftly and painlessly. I can’t imagine myself going anywhere else for dental care. These two doctors (& I’m sure the rest of the practice) truly care about their patients & the equipment that they use on a daily basis. They have THE state of the art stuff! They extensively explain the procedures before they are done and how they will benefit you in the future. I have gotten to know Dr. Shmuely very well over the years and his wonderful staff. Nishu (one of the hygienists) is excellent. After meeting her a few months ago I have vowed to have only her clean my teeth :) Michelle (one of the care specialists in the front) is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met in a doctor office setting & she has always made me feel extra comfortable before procedures are done. I could go on and on about how amazing I think 286 Madison Dental is, but I just wanted to express my deep gratitude to these wonderful people for making my dental journey as easy and painless as possible. BTW people, they have a 3D printer that actually creates a lot of the things needed for procedures. It’s so cool! Thank you again Dr. Shmuely, Dr. Kaufman, Michelle, Nishu, Farrah & anyone else that has played a part in my treatment journey. I will be forever grateful! :D"
"I’m so happy to have found 286 Madison Dental! I first found the practice as I needed some periodontal work done with Dr. Kaufman. Dr. Kaufman was very experienced, knowledgeable and warm. I was also very lucky in that he referred me to Dr. Kimon for dentistry within the practice. Unfortunately I needed a lot of work done (replacing old cavities, crowns, etc) and Dr. Kimon did all he could to make the process the least stress possible. Not only is he incredibly talented and innovative, he also truly cares about his patients and takes the time to explain things thoroughly. He is very detailed and is always willing to go that extra mile. For example, I was experiencing some tooth sensitivity a couple of months ago and Dr. Kimon even took the time to follow up and make sure I was doing okay. Not only is he calm, patient and caring, I’m always confident and trust that I’ve received the best care possible upon leaving his office! In addition, I started my own business a couple of years ago which as anyone who starts a biz can attest to, it can be really stressful securing good dental insurance. Given I’m self-employed, the team really worked with me to ensure that I received the best dental care at fair rates which I’m also very appreciative of. If you are looking for a great dentist and practice, I’d absolutely recommend Dr. Kimon and 286 Madison Dental. Always a positive experience!"
"Dr Kaufman and Dr Shmuely are great at what they do and made me feel comfortable. I have had 6 procedures done here and happy to say that it is my home for dental health. The staff is friendly , Roby and Cindy always call and work to fit me in to the office schedule. Highly recommend this place, please write me if you have any questions ."
"Never have I felt like I was home when I walk into any Dental office. Until now. I hadn’t had dental insurance for years & when I got it, I only just used it to repair a problem that would randomly occur . I’m a New York City artist & I’m always trying to make rent, so my time is very important to me. I am also a big man with a big appetite who always wore a great smile. My teeth weren’t getting the proper attention they needed. Turning my bright smile into something cracked & dull.After using random dentist over this period. I literally stumbled into the office of 286 Madison Dental. Thinking it was the last place I went to but newer location.That turned out to be a blessing ! They are friendly, efficient, informative & just good people, who do exceptional work. Weather it’s a it’s a cleaning an extraction or a simple billing plan, scheduling & confining appointments .The office is run by the happiest, friendliest Doctors in New York City .Dr. Eliaz Kaufman DDS,MS & Dr. Aviram Shmuely DDS. Let’s not forget about their staff of gorgeous brilliant ladies, that work hard everyday for each & every patient that walks into their door. Thank you ,Cindy Vo, Robeliz Peralta, Nishu Singh, Jane & all the other ladies that made my dulled smile bright again . & Thank you all for putting up with me, this pauper of a man with now a better smile Always ,Joshua Fennell"

"Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Shmuley are great at what they do. Dr. Shmuley filled in a cavity for me and it went very smoothly. It was my first experience in the office and Shmuley was welcoming, genuine and professional. He was quick, but unhurried.Dr. Kaufman removed my wisdom teeth (top 2, I had no bottom). Getting your wisdom teeth out is typically quite the ordeal, as I’ve seen with friends and family members. The use of anesthesia incapacitates the patient and leaves them groggy and inept afterwards. Dr. Kaufman opted not to use the anesthesia on me and removed my teeth while I was awake. The area had been numbed thoroughly so I didnt feel any pain. In 30 mins I was out of the office and since the front desk was so accomodating in scheduling my appointment at the end of my work day I only missed an hour of work. I was back in work the next morning, on time, feeling fine.286 Madison Dental is the best!"
"Most Professional and Friendly dental experience of my life. Both Dr Shmuely and Dr Kaufman show a genuine interest in the well being of their patients, both dentally and in general health and mental well being. They are friendly, willing to educate their patients and work effeciently and effectively. I would recommend 286 Madison Dental to any of my friends and family. Their technology is second to none and they really take any fear and negativity out of going to the dentist. Thank you all!"
"I’ve had experience with both Dr. Schmuely and Dr. Kaufman. Both were absolutely fantastic, not only in their technical expertise, but in their patient interaction as well. They take the time to make sure you know what is going on, what a process entails, and what to expect going forward. Even for a relatively major operation where I was told to expect some pain and discomfort, I had none. Every patient is different I guess, but it just seems like they pay more attention to detail than my previous dentists. Highly recommend these guys."
"Dr. Kaufman is quite simply one of the most professional individuals I’ve ever interacted with. I visited him this week for a through cleaning after he explained to me that there was some infection I was dealing with. He explained to me the causes, the concerns, and the proper care required to rectify the situation; he left no part out. I had a weird reaction to the numbing shots and briefly became ill as a result, but he remained calm, collected, and took immediate action to help me relax and stabilize. I was ready to go home after, but he explained to me exactly what happened and reassured me that everything was just fine. The cleaning itself was incredibly well done, and I’m happy to say that I’m a satisfied customer who will return again.Thanks Dr. Kaufman and to the whole staff at the office!"
"Dr. Kaufman is the most professional and kind doctor I ever had in my life. He's patient and takes his time during a procedure leading to a job well done."
