I went in for a deep root cleaning. Dr. Kaufman explained the entire process in such detail that really put me ease. 🙂 I highly recommend being a patient at 286 Madison Dental…they are fabulous!

If I’m seeing a particular dentist (Dr. Shmuely) for over 20 years, he must be doing something right. He has also always been a caring and sensitive person who actually came into his office once on a Sunday because one of my caps came off which would have been visible had I even smiled, and he did not want me to wait until Monday. Highly recommended.

I was traveling in NYC and cracked a tooth. Very stressful in light of the business I needed to complete. The staff at 286 Madison Dental were over-the-top accommodating. Best dental experience I have ever had and I am a physician.

Best dental exam I have ever had! Dr. Wexler’s bedside manner, professionalism, knowledge, and kindness were exceptional. It was the first time I ever felt like a dentist really was listening to what I had to say. Office staff was caring, attentive, and professional. Truly outstanding dental service.
