As always, a pleasure to have Dr Mason take a look at my teeth!
I came in to get my upper teeth straightened before my wedding and they look great. Dr Mason did a wonderful job making sure that my teeth came out straight and that the process was easy and (relatively) painless. I recommend her to all my friends for cosmetic and general dentistry.
She and her staff and great! Professional & friendly = the perfect combination! Thank you for the great care and smile.
I actually don'r even mind coming to the dentist when I come here! Everyone is so nice and the experience is so great!
The dental care is excellent.
Have been coming here for years now based on a referral from a coworker. Dr. Mason fixed all the work that a previous dentist had done, and couldn't be happier. Entire staff is pleasant and friendly. Highly recommend.
Dr. Mason used this new anesthesia that you breath in. My tooth was totally numb and I felt nothing. Amazing!
I have been seeing Dr. Mason for the past 5 years or so. I trust her to always do what is best for my teeth in the long term. The staff is great and always teaches me how to take care of my teeth. You can tell they care about my health overall!
in and out, faster than you can say smile did not feel a thing
Dr. Mason is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She made great suggestions for improving my smile but is not caught up in unnecessary trends and expensive cosmetic services. She has great bedside manner and everyone in her office is friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this practice!
I am from the Upper East Side and have gone to many dentists in the city, Dr. Mason is by far the best. Her staff is incredible, she made me so comfortable and completely changed my smile for the better! Will recommend her to everyone!

Dr Mason was amazing! I did not have to do a lot of work for HUGE results!
Dr. Mason and her staff are some of the nicest I have ever met, but really set them apart for me is their professionalism and meticulous attention to detail. You couldn't possibly be in better hands.
Dr. Mason and her entire team are welcoming, professional and prompt. I have had extensive dental work over the years and been to many practices, and Dr. Mason's office far surpasses any experience I have ever had. In addition to cleanings over the years, Dr. Mason has replaced veneers, cavities, performed a root canal and fitted a crown. Dr. Mason's knowledge and attention coupled with her team's expertise and gentle care make a positive and often joyous experience. I highly recommend.

The doctor was gentle, clear very professional, and no bad breath. :) it was a stress free appointment very clean work no pain. I'm a very happy client.
Dr. Mason has always been a great dentist, but recently she suggested I try bonding on two of my teeth to improve my smile. The process was so quick and simple and my smile is perfect now! No braces or Invaslign needed. I'm thrilled with how it turned out and so thankful to Dr. Mason for presenting me with all my options. Thank you!

Positive experience
First time at the office and had a great visit. Friendly, welcoming staff as well. Can't wait to come back for my next cleaning. Courtney did a great job with my cleaning too!
You don't easily find a doctor who takes such time to explain and who actually pays so much attention to your concerns. I found one. Today she impressed herself with how great the work turned out. And I win.
Very willing to listen to issues and present possible alternative solutions. Staff very helpful.
I'm a long time patient -- my whole family is treated here
Dr. Mason's office is clean and easy to get to. Dr. Mason and the dental hygienist always spend a lot of time with me to make sure I don't have any questions or concerns.
Excellent cleaning and my followup was quick and painless.
I had a root canal. It was not rushed, Dr Mason was incredibly patient and thorough. With the time she took, it was a very pleasant experience for such a complicated process as a root canal . Dr Mason was clear in explanation, and treated me like I have been a patient with her for years it, it was a great experience and she is an excellent Dentist.
Very positive
Dr Mason took the time to explain how my wish of "getting back my smile" would be accomplished each step of the way. I now have amazing looking, healthy teeth when I smile! Thank you Dr. Mason and staff, you are a wizard with smiles!

I have been a patient of Dr. Mason's practice for over 10 years and have been seeing Iris, my dental hygienist for 8 years, and we always have something to chat about when I come to the office. Everytime I visit, I am greeted by Arelis who is always so friendly! I never have to wait for my appointment and I always have a positive experience here! I have referred at least 3 people over my time here and I hope to send more!
I had a wonderful experience with the entire staff. I will definitely refer people in the future!
