    My experience was very pleasent. The wait was a bit long but I can tell he was with another patient and not just wasting my time. He was very informative and answered all of my questions. We schedule another appointment and my son is eager to go back.

    As a new newcomer to the USA from England, i waited over 2 years before i plucked up courage to find a new dentist. I found Mr Shiffman through your site, and on my first visit i was put completely at ease. Having a dentist try to make you smile while he has his hand in your mouth proved to calm a very nervous patiant!

    Dr. Shiffman is very good. My son was afraid but Dr. Shiffman made him feel so comfortable that he felt no pain. I recommend this dentist to everyone.
