JOHN HANSFORD, DMD - GREENPOINT PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY REVIEWS
I just got off of the phone with Dr. Hansford and had the best experience. My daughter is a type 1 diabetic and needs 8 cavities pulled. Dr. Hansford not only gave me his honest recommendation to take my daughter to a hospital, but he gave additional information on where to go, facts to be aware of, and proper questions to ask when looking for another provider. He didn’t even meet me or my daughter yet provided the most honest and caring recommendations that I’ve ever gotten from any doctor, ever. I almost wish we could see him versus going elsewhere!
My son's (2yrs) first time at the dentist, needed the form for him to start school. I missed my appointment and was so stressed that morning because this place was so far, it was 90 deg outside and the only decent place that accepts my insurance. I begged them to still see my son, and they did. The staff was so nice, they were patient with my son who was screaming and crying the whole time. GOD BLESS THEM. I definitely recommend them if you live in the area. Not sure if it's practical for me, I live almost 2 hours away. But it may be a sacrifice because they were good with him.
Amazing amazing Dr. Hansford sedated both my sons three years ago. Everything went great. Our pediatric dentist found new cavities recently and did their best to get my kids to cooperate but it wasn’t happening. Dr Hansford sedated them both again today. My Husband and I were very pleased again.

ROBERT N. GOLDSMITH, DMD - WEST SIDE KIDS DENTAL REVIEWS
My teenage son cracked a tooth and our regular dentist could not see him on a Friday afternoon, so I called Dr. Goldsmith's office and they made time for my son to come in. We had an excellent experience. My son was seen promptly, everyone made sure we understood what needed to happen, we got a copy of his x-ray to take back to his own dentist, and Dr. Goldsmith was personally helpful in explaining further treatment options and even tracking down our insurance information. Everyone in the practice was welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Goldsmith is a caring and knowledgeable pediatric dentist who treats my two sons. For each appointment, he takes time to explain thoroughly any procedures as well as the growth of the boys' teeth. In addition, his staff are friendly and helpful. I would not have anyone else take care the boys!
As always Dr. Goldsmith is amazing service is always quick and pain free. My kids love him and we couldn’t be more grateful for such a caring Dentist that truly loves what he does! The Lomax Family appreciates Dr. Goldsmith.

FATINA SHTIVELMAN, DDS - GRAMERCY KIDS SMILES REVIEWS
Dr. Fatina is the best! My kids LOVE talking to her and get so excited when we mention her name at home. Fabulous service, amazing office, very professional and fun! She not only specializes in dentistry for kids but she’s also going to do our sons lip tie! One stop shop for all your dental needs for your children. Love her and her team!
Dr. Fatina and the whole staff was great once again. Requested their favorite Netflix show and my son knows he gets a car when he listens and is good there. Did his 4 year x-rays and my 2 year old didn’t freak as he lay on me for his cleaning.
Dr Fatina is so kind and knowledgeable! My kids love it here. I especially like that my kids are at ease and are calm when they are in her office. Great front office staff too, professional and friendly.
