I had an amazing experience at Dr. Kirschner’s office. The implants that I received look incredibly natural and real. On top of all that, his prices were far better than other establishments that I looked at, and the quality of the work was significantly better. Normally when I go to the dentist, I experience some pain or discomfort. However, I did not feel anything during this experience. Even the lidocaine shot, which usually hurts, didn't bother me because I was so at ease.

I was a bit apprehensive about going to Dr. Kirschner’s office, but it turned out to be the best dental experience I've ever had. Plus, it was quick. I've gone to other dentists in the past, and I have felt that those dentists were a bit difficult to trust. Even though they were experts in their field, I felt as though they didn't have my best interest at heart, so it was difficult to take the recommendations about my oral hygiene. I've had at least six cavities, and the dentists that I have been to in the past have all insisted upon silver fillings, even though I wanted the white ceramic ones that look more natural. Today I had all my old silver fillings replaced with the white ceramic feelings that I originally wanted. I am incredibly pleased with the results. My teeth look incredibly natural and new! I will most certainly be back for my regular visits!

I love the fact that I am able to get same-day appointments at Dr. Kirschner’s office. The staff is incredibly friendly, especially the dental assistant and hygienist. They take the time to make me feel at ease and offer a very efficient appointment. Plus, they have top-notch customer service. Dr. Kirschner is wonderful as well, as is the receptionist. It's easy to find a place to park, and the office is impeccably clean and well organized. I highly recommend this Far Rockaway practice.

As a child, I feared going to the dentist. It didn’t help that I had heard horror stories of other patients’ experiences with other local dentists. Luckily, Dr. Kirschner's office is the exact opposite. He and his staff are incredible, and it's obvious that they love their jobs. I wish I had known about this practice years ago. It would have saved me quite a bit of anxiety. Overall, the place is very calm, which is a must when getting your teeth taken care of.

Dr. Kirschner’s dental office is the best I've ever been to. He runs the office very efficiently, not overbooking his schedule, causing there to be long wait times. He and his dental assistants explain everything that needs to be done in great detail while still answering all your questions throughout the procedure. During procedures, he frequently checks on your comfort level. Before you have a procedure done, the staff does a great job explaining the costs so that there aren’t any surprises when you get your bill. I highly recommend Dr. Kirschner. His office is very tidy and sanitary. It's difficult to feel comfortable at a dental office, but his staff does a great job putting you at ease.

I've never liked going to the dentist. However, Dr. Kirschner from Far Rockaway is different. I've been to his practice multiple times, and each experience has been enjoyable. During my first visit, I showed Dr. Kirschner my TMJ, which I'd had for over a decade. We agreed that the condition was pretty bad for my age and would continue to worsen over time. He convinced me that I needed a night guard, which I was hesitant about due to the cost. I feared that the night guard wouldn’t help much. However, I've been wearing it for a few months, and my TMJ is fixed. I don't even mind wearing it wearing it. Dr. Kirschner was right about needing it. I highly recommend Dr. Kirschner and his team without reservation. He sends a great deal of time with each client and even does some of the cleanings himself. The office has very convenient hours which makes it easy to schedule appointments when you have a busy schedule. They also have the technology available to request appointments online. If you're like me and you dislike going to the dentist, then you should consider calling Dr. Howard Kirschner. You'll love him!

I'd been experiencing pain and sensitivity around a few crowns, so I was relieved that Dr. Kirschner said there wasn’t any infection. My implant was doing fine, so I didn’t need a root canal either. I really appreciate the thorough and honest care he provides. He is the best dentist I have ever been to, and I am thrilled to continue going to his practice. He is a genius with excellent chair-side manner. I highly recommend him to anybody in the Far Rockaway, NY area needing a new dentist. You won’t be disappointed!

I had a massive toothache and needed a dentist quickly. Thanks to online reviews, I discovered Dr. Kirschner’s office was very conveniently located. The receptionist kindly helped me schedule an appointment and worked with me to deal with my insurance. The office space is very inviting. And the staff is incredibly friendly. Unfortunately, my toothache required a root canal. Fortunately, Dr. Kirschner had a great bedside manner. He performed the procedure very easily, and I didn’t experience any pain. I’m rather apprehensive of dentists, so I was glad that he took the time to explain everything to me thoroughly and in advance. I know have a bright smile and a trustworthy dentist. After the root canal, I decided to get veneers on my front teeth. Dr. Kirschner’s cosmetic dentistry is as good as his emergency care. The results look incredibly natural. I’ve received so many compliments about my smile. Thanks Dr. Kirschner!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kirschner for years. He is an excellent dentist. Rather than having braces again, he put caps on my front teeth. This was a few years ago, and my front teeth still look amazing in person and in photos. Dr. Kirschner is both highly skilled and charismatic. I know it’s hard to believe, but I actually look forward to my appointments.

I've been to Dr. Kirschner’s office multiple times, and I can honestly say that each time has been a pleasurable experience. We had difficult experiences at other dentists, even for something as basic as a cleaning. Our search for a family dentist then took us to Dr. Kirschner office. He is incredibly personable and highly skilled. When we changed over to his office, it was a very smooth process in terms of coordinating it with our dental insurance. This was due to the competency of his staff. I can't imagine going to a different dentist. The only possible downside is that his office is a bit out of the way for me personally, but I can honestly say that this doesn't bother me. I would rather drive farther to have the quality of care I received from dr. Kirchner than go somewhere closer for poor quality work.

Our family of 9 has been going to Dr. Kirschner for years. Simply put, he is the best dentist we could ask for (and we’ve been to multiple dentists.) He is highly skilled and genuinely cares about his patients and staff. He also personally calls you after a procedure to make sure that everything has gone well. I have already referred multiple friends to his practice and will continue to do so.

Dr. Kirschner isn’t just the best dentist in Far Rockaway; he’s the best dentist in New York. The quality of his care is well worth the drive. His office is impeccably clean, which I appreciate. The staff epitomizes professionalism. The staff couldn't be any more kind either. The receptionist is so warm and inviting to everyone who walks through the door, and the dental nurses are incredibly good at making you feel comfortable before any procedure, big or small. Most of all, though, Dr. Kirschner genuinely cares about his patients’ needs. You might be thinking that every dentist is supposed to care about their patients' needs, but that is not always the case. To him, dentistry is more than just a job, which is why I believe many of his patients have stayed with him for so long. My entire family frequents this practice. We trust him with all of our Dental concerns and I have yet to experience anything other than the best.

Most people don't like going to the dentist. They fear High charges for unnecessary services and are worried that they might be caused some pain. However, that is not what you get with Dr. Kirschner. With him, you get honest, reliable service and very meticulous and efficient staff. Their Far Rockaway location is very convenient too.

I am thrilled that I found Dr. Kirschner based on some online reviews. Having moved here from another state, I was very intimidated to search for a new dentist. I have gone to his office twice so far, and both times have been wonderful experiences. The receptionist is very personable, and the hygienist does great work. Overall, they offer very good customer service. I felt as though they took their time to meet my needs rather than rushing through the process to be able to see the next patient. I had anticipated being told that I would need quite a bit of work done. However, that was not the case, and I was very relieved. All too often you hear of dentists upselling their patients, charging them for unnecessary services just to run up the bill. Dr. Kirschner does not do that. He is very honest about what legitimately needs to be done. I am pleased that I have found such a wonderful dentist in the Far Rockaway area. I will continue to come back for all of my dental needs.

I have gone to Dr. Kirschner’s practice for 4 years. After moving to the Far Rockaway area, I had no clue who to choose as my dentist, so I turned to online reviews. Since finding him, I have gone every six months for regular visits, and I just had my first cavity filled. The team here really cares about their patients. They are very meticulous, but at the same time, they are also very efficient. They do incredible work! I have a tendency to grind my teeth, which, unfortunately, causes my teeth to chip. Dr. Kirschner made molds for night guards. He then smoothed out the chipped teeth for free!

I’ve got so many good things to say about Dr. Kirschner that I don’t know where to start. First of all, his work merits more than 5 stars. After having quite a bit of trouble with one of my front teeth, I decided to call Dr. Kirschner’s office for an appointment. At first, I was hesitant because I had previously had poor experiences with other dentists, so I was nervous that fixing my front tooth would entail quite a bit of work. However, Dr. Kirschner and his staff were so kind and helpful that I grew to trust them immensely. I'm glad I did because my front teeth now look a lot better. I had to get a crown, and it is a perfect match for the rest of my teeth. You can't even tell. I was so surprised that they would be able to pull this off, but they did! I owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to Dr. Kirschner; he is the best in Far Rockaway, New York.

I’ve intended to write this review for a long time. It took be a long time to find a dentist that made me feel at ease. I finally found one: Dr. Kirschner. Dr. Kirschner and his team are incredible. They truly care about helping their patients and listening to their concerns. What’s more impressive is that they remember what you discussed six months prior and are willing to offer multiple solutions. While there are other dentists closer to where I live, going to Dr. Kirschner’s Far Rockaway dental office is well worth the slight added distance.

Our family has been patients of Dr. Kirschner for multiple years. He is truly the best dentist any of us could ask for. It doesn't matter if you go in for a simple cavity or oral surgery you won't feel any pain whatsoever. Dr. Kirschner truly cares about his patients; he goes the extra mile to make sure that his patients have everything they need. A few years ago, I experienced trauma to my mouth while we were on vacation. We came home the next day, which happened to be a Sunday, and Dr. Kirschner made a special effort to come to the office so that he could take care of my dental work and help relieve my pain. He also personally calls you after a procedure to make sure that everything has gone okay. We absolutely adore Dr. Kirschner and could not imagine going anywhere else.

I went to Dr. Kirschner on a Saturday morning to have a wisdom tooth removed. I don’t especially like going to the dentist, but his office is always so inviting and clean. The staff was incredibly charismatic and welcoming. Dr. Kirschner is very personable, which helped me relaxed better. The best part was that, as promised, I felt nothing. I had my wisdom tooth extracted and felt no pain at all.
Sara B.
Dr. Kirschner takes such wonderful care of his patients. He and his staff are very personable. I recently had a wisdom tooth pulled and didn’t have any pain. The entire process was very efficient and painless. I appreciated that he took the time to explain the procedures so thoroughly. I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Kirschner and his Far Rockaway, NY clinic. He is the absolute best around.
Carolyn D.
I had my third procedure with Dr. Kirschner did today. I appreciate how compassionate he is. The staff is equally as friendly. I also love that they give you little goodies at each visit. I’ve been to multiple dentists, and Dr. Kirschner is by far the best. If going to the dentist makes you nervous, you need to try Dr. Kirschner.

After an excellent appointment yesterday, I think I found my new dentist. The receptionist warmly welcomed me as soon as I entered the office. I barely had to wait before being taken back for x-rays. Next, one of the assistants took pictures the fillings that needed to be replaced. Dr. Howard Kirschner was very positive. He was very reassuring and kind. Everyone at this Far Rockaway practice is so personable. Make yourself an appointment, you’ll leave happier and with a nicer smile!
Laurie I.
I went to Dr. Kirschner for a cleaning and check up. The office is very clean and comfortable. Dr. Kirschner is very meticulous and highly-skilled. He advised me how to better keep my teeth clean since I get stains easily. I had gone to another local dentist, and the hygienist there did not clean my teeth very well. However, Dr. Kirschner and his staff did a great job. I’m one happy customer.

After searching online for the best dentist in the Far Rockaway area, I discovered Dr. Kirschner. Initially, my visit was simply because I wanted a second opinion. My former dentist had estimated that I would need $3000 worth of work done. I pride myself on taking good care of my teeth, so I was skeptical of needed that much work done. I decided to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kirschner. The office was clean and organized. His staff took x-rays, which was a very efficient process, then they examined my teeth, which was also a pain-free process thanks to the high-quality equipment they use. Dr. Kirschner checked on my multiple times during the cleaning. He made sure that I was okay and didn’t need any adjustments. The best part, though, was that Dr. Kirschner agreed with me. He said I didn’t need any costly work done. I’ll be coming back in 6 months for a cleaning. I’m so excited not to have to pay a huge bill! Dr. Kirschner is very practical, and his services are very affordable. I have found the best dentist in New York! I have never smiled as much leaving a dentist’s office as I did that day. He is a life saver! If you want a kind, honest dentist, give Dr. Kirschner a call.

If you’re the type of person who has put off dental work for years out of fear of pain or fear of excessive costs, then you need to visit Dr. Howard Kirschner in Far Rockaway, NY. I had 4 wisdom teeth removed, and it took less than half an hour from the time I walked in to the time I left. The best part was that I didn’t experience any pain. I’m not kidding. The office is very tidy and sanitary. Plus, the receptionist and assistants are incredibly personable. I’m thrilled to have found this practice. I’ll already planning on going back to get more work done on my teeth. This is honestly the first time I’ve ever been excited about dental care in my life.

I use to avoid the dentist, but this staff has made me feel relaxed and totally changed my opinion. I now realize there are good dentists out there. I’ve needed a wisdom tooth removed for a while now but just kept avoiding getting it done. They were very kind and checked up on me after I had the procedure. They treat you like a human being rather than just another body in the chair. The extraction went a lot better than I thought it would, and I can’t thank the staff enough for that. The procedure only took an hour, which I thought was very impressive. I’m looking forward to coming in for my checkups. If you don’t have insurance that shouldn’t be a problem here, the prices are very nice. Also, they offer their own dental plan through Doctors Network, which is very affordable.

I think I could give myself the title of “Most Difficult Dentist Patient Ever”. My teeth aren’t as strong as I would like them to be, but Dr. Kirschner provides high quality service and care. I wouldn’t want any other dentist to help me with cavities, root canals, and any other procedure. The office is always flexible if you have a dental emergency. Dr. Kirschner is very thorough when he answers my questions and very kind. The hygienists are friendly and caring too. Everybody should go see Dr. Kirschner, you’ll be glad you did.

I had to do a lot of research to find a new dentist in Arverne after my Cigna Dental insurance changed and didn’t cover my former dentist anymore. I’m so happy I found this place, the staff is amazing. I was about to start a new job and needed to use up my current benefits that were going to end in a couple of weeks. They were very helpful and offered me appointment times of patients who had canceled so that I could get in sooner. The office felt very welcoming and Dr. Kirschner is wonderful. He is very kind and easy to talk to. He listened to all my questions and concerns I had about teeth grinding. He helped me come up with a solution that my insurance would cover so that I wouldn’t have to spend much money, which was a huge relief. He took his time with me, and I felt very refreshed and confident walking out of her office. I look forward to coming back.

Family Dental Care for Everyone in Far Rockaway, NY
General dentistry is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For example, preventive appointments are necessary to avoid dental issues such as tooth decay and periodontitis. At our Far Rockaway, NY dental office, Dr. Kirschner and our team offer a wide range of family dental services to help your family enjoy a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
The Value of General Dentistry
In all aspects of your health, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the main focus of exceptional dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing. Besides brushing and flossing your teeth every day, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the formation of plaque and tartar. Other procedures, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), bone and gum grafts, dental extractions, and more, can also help you manage existing issues before they grow worse.
Caring for Your Smile in the Long Run
At your general dentistry appointment, your dentist will thoroughly inspect your teeth and oral tissues for signs of trouble. Then he or she will consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the issue from worsening. However, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
