"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."
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"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!"
"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 is not only a professional , but treats you like a friend..Details all that needs to be done.Front office staff...friendly, prompt, a pleasure..Cleaning done by Dani...actually painless and fun.-Alan"
"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!"
