Patient Comments (12)
in New York, NY |
My appointment was for an extraction of a cracked and fragile molar. Dr. Black was reassuring, informative and thorough both before and after the procedure. I expected to be uncomfortable during the extraction. I felt no pain at all. He provided me with detailed instructions and an array of prescriptions to keep me safe and comfortable while healing. It all worked, and my experience with Dr. Black was over all the best dental experience I've ever had.

After seeing another doctor for a few visits and not getting any real diagnosis,I went to Dr Black. Not only did he diagnosis me within 5 minutes, he also assured me nothing to be concerned about it. I did have a biopsy within a couple of weeks, his staff was informative and extremely considerate. I not only would recommend Dr. BLack, I would insist on someone who needs any oral procedure to look no further. I did appreciate a follow-up phone call the night of my biopsy and told to call anytime.

Had double jaw surgery back in 2009, all went well, he is the best all around, very professional..amazing..attentive worked with my dentist
in Long Island City, NY |
Dr. Black and his staff are very professional. The first time I went to his office I could barely open my mouth, two years ago. I have a serious case of bruxism and it leaded to a severe bone loss on my jaw joint. He suggested an appliance to prevent more impact on the joint and not lose more bone. He is very careful and try all the alternatives before surgery. He is an excellent professional.
in Sunnyside, NY |
Dr.Black and his staff make you feel extremely comfortable. Everything is handled with the utmost level of professionalism and care from start to finish. This is my second time back to Dr.Black for a wisdom tooth extraction and I could not be happier with my overall experience on both occasions. Pain is minimal post surgery and I have been able to bounce back to my normal routine in a day!

A superb oral surgeon. Five stars all the way.
in Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Black is thorough when explaining dental assessments, next steps and the process for corrective action while staying professional with an amicable temperament. He is very knowledgeable when responding to questions giving the best health solutions as well as favorable alternatives. He cares about the well-being of his patients and follow up after oral procedures via phone call. I had a molar extracted - minimal pain and swelling. Putting patients first is his unspoken business model.

I had a Fantastic experience with Dr.Black. His professionalism, the office staff, clear communication, willingness to accommodate my financial/insurance restrictions and last, though certainly not least, after the extraction of six teeth I had very little pain or discomfort the next day.
in New York, NY |
Dr Black was thorough in his explanation of the procedure prior to the operation. At all times during the operation, the removal of two wisdom teeth, I felt comfortable that Dr Black and his nurse were doing the job properly.I also really appreciated the follow up call by Dr Black after surgery.
in New York |
Dr Black was very succinct and clear with my care options. He performed the extraction sensitive to my wish to not be put to sleep. He worked very quickly. Post surgery was a good experience to make sure I knew what I needed.
