I have used a number of dentists throughout the years and was never happy with the service or experience. This has come to an end with Dr. Achury and Dr. Puerta. They are both highly skilled dentists that truly care for their patients. I always know I'm in good hands with them regardless of the procedure. When I had an emergency last month, they stepped up and corrected the problem early the next day. I was back in public and able to smile without anyone ever aware of the problem. Thanks again for allowing me to smile confidently.

I came during an emergency visit, and he was able to fit me into his busy schedule. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Achury and trust him.
I have been coming here for years. I do not regret my decision to come and consult with Dr Achury many years ago. My experience with him has always been very satisfactory and I love coming twice a year. Excellent dental work! I recommend him to everyone who is looking for excellent dental work.

Thanks to everyone for the assistance and help I received from all of you. I don't have words to express how happy I am. Wish I can leave here so this will be my place and my home for the dental service
Excellent doctor and friendly staff, strongly recommend them..
For someone who doesn't look forward to going to the dentist...I can say that the service and attention is amazing. He makes me feel very comfortable and explains everything as he goes. I've recommended my whole family to switch over.
He has been my dentist for 18 years and he has been my daughter's dentist for 6 years. I have never had a problem with him. Him and his assistants are dedicated to helping their patients.

I have been a patient of Dr. Achury for over a decade. When I moved out of Jackson Heights, I was disappointed to lose him as a dentist. Now that I have moved back to the neighborhood, I am thrilled to call him my dentist once again. Dr. Achury is very professional, explains the diagnosis clearly and also is detailed with how he will treat any condition you have. Aside from this, he is very friendly. He takes the time to listen to your issue(s) and/or concerns, and is not...
Gentle and very patient have never had a Dentist this good
I have known Dr. Achury for several years, before using his services I went through several dentists and while I never had a negative experience, I never felt as comfortable as I do now. He is a thorough professional who cares about his patient's well being.
I haven't visited a dental office in a long time and Dr. Achury gave me the run down. We had a good conversation going and gave me some much needed advice. I am looking forward to my next visit, I definitely recommend.
