    I can hardly express my pleasure and gratitude for my incredible experience with Dr. Berger and his colleagues and staff. After a LIFETIME of dental pain and discomfort , 30 years through countless insurances and hundreds of thousands of dollars, my expectations were low when I found an ad in the PrimeTime. I immediately knew this was going to be a very new experience. The kindness and compassion of Dr. Berger, Dr. Lee, and Dr. Mayer during the initial exam was as refreshing as it was surprising. On the spot a brainstorming of ideas took place, and the enthusiasm and sense of urgency to ease MY pain and discomfort was obvious. When it came time to discuss finances, several options were presented and NONE of the options compromised the level of quality care I would receive. Dr. Berger carefully negotiated a COMPLETE quote. Not an estimate that would continue to grow! Unpredictable conditions were discussed as well, and estimated possible additions were discussed up front. I knew what I was getting. Dr. Berger was also able to help me get interest free financing with low monthly payments to further alleviate the stress of financial burden. Throughout my entire experience, appointments were always made convenient. The administrative office staff go beyond the call of duty to assist in scheduling, confirming, and accommodating every need including even your parking! I have never once been made to wait unreasonable amounts of time for my appointment to begin. Not only is this office run efficiently, the staff are so friendly, I have formed LASTING relationships that have extended beyond the office! I was never rushed through an appointment either. My concerns were always addressed as if I were the most important patient. For the first time in my extensive dental experience, a knowledgeable TEAM of professionals assessed and addressed my ENTIRE condition, formulated a plan of attack, and FOLLOWED THROUGH! Aside from his apparent expertise,Dr. Lee is a Master Artist when it comes to recreating a natural looking smile. He has a knack for listening and understanding what you want aesthetically and goes above and beyond to achieve both form and function. Dr. Mayer is empathetic and caring. He is aware of the pain some of the more difficult procedures he performs can cause and is extremely diligent to prevent as much discomfort as possible. He also has the most gentle approach I have ever experienced. The entire staff of assistants to these dentists are professional, knowledgeable, personable and have a camaraderie with each other and their dentists that they seem to read each other's minds. It is extremely rare to see a group of people who work so well together. Within 3 weeks of my first appointment, for the first time since I was 5 years old, I was out of pain. Within 6 appointments I had teeth that I was no longer embarrassed to open my mouth in public, which is something I haven't had since I was a teenager. Not only is Dr. Berger's approach to patient care unique, his kindness, compassion and human decency are unparalleled. The incredible result of all the work these wonderful people have done for me has BY FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. My smile is beautiful. My mouth is so comfortable, I sometimes forget that these aren't my natural teeth, and if I didn't tell you, you would never know they weren't my own teeth. Words cannot express how much this experience has changed my life for the better. I recommend them highly for all your dental needs. Sincerely, Barbara Lonergan

    Went to their office to repair two caps which broke off my implants. Never got the financial breakdown of procedures. They didn't look into how my dental plan would assist & the diagnosis given did not fit my needs or requests. I appreciated the "free" x ray for new clients...however my dental plan was billed so they were paid through them without my knowledge till I go the break down in the mail the other day. Feeling ambivalent about their approach. They wanted to remove all my upper teeth & the implants ...but there is no emergency nor need right now. No other options were considered...even though I expressed desire to find other ways less invasive at this time.

    It was by far my worst experience. The place hasn't been updated since the day they moved in(over 20 yrs ago). I was examined by two dentists to make up my dental plan, neither of which addressed the problem I was going in there for. Then I was trying to be pressured by Dr. Berger more than once to open a credit card for additional charges that would not be covered under my insurance. Everything was done on paper, phony estimate, no computer itemizing charges to show me. Just Dr Berger making up charges as he went along. I was there for close to three hours and still walked out in pain. I don't how so many people think his office is clean and modern enough and the way you get treated is acceptable. I felt like I was at a store in the mall and them pressuring me to open up an acct. Very disappointing .

    kept waiting a long time, office is just about selling things, asked to fill out a credit application which is simply wrong because why should anyone divulge so much personal information and it implies that the dentist will find lots of work and keep on billing....office looked unkempt...totally tuned off ---rating 0 stars

    As typical with long island practioners, the receptionist said "we couldn`t stay in business if we accepted the union plans" .
