New York, NY |
I highly recommend Dr. Kafko and his entire staff. I have experienced only positive, professional, responsible, and friendly interactions with all beginning with the receptionists and assistants, 2 difficult root canals with Dr. Lipner, Implants w Dr. Wang, and finish work with Dr. Kafko. The practice accepts insurance, explains all in advance, texts you appointment reminders, and all are respectful and personable. I highly recommend to all wanting honest and professional treatment.

Dr. Ifraimov and the entire staff of 209 NYC Dental are fantastic. From the ease of making appointments to the friendly and professional office ladies, to the caring and knowledge of the dental professionals, I cannot recommend this practice enough! Amazing that there are great specialists available, as well (yes, you, Dr. Lipner)! The office is high-tech, super clean, and comfortable.
New York, NY |
My husband and I love this practice. Even now that we live in NJ, we still come to the city for checkups and cleaning. The dentists here are all excellent. Staff is very friendly and our hygienist, Oksana is the best. Love her! The office has also been recently renovated and looks very fresh and always clean.
New York, NY |
Dr Kafko has been my dentist for 15 years. He is very caring, takes time to listen and is just an excellent dentist. His staff is a miror of him. I highly recommend him.
