My husband and I have gone to Dr. Taft of Arverne Dental for a few years. He has perfect teeth, but I’m not so lucky. I’ve had a few cavities. I had a crown put in place. The staff did a wonderful job. They are kind and gentle, which really puts me at ease. I highly recommend them if you are in the Arverne area and need a new dentist.
My husband and I have gone to Dr. Taft of Arverne Dental for a while now for our routine cleanings and even some emergency work. They’ve helped us with a broken tooth and a crown. Each time we leave the office, we’re exceptionally pleased. The staff is kind, meticulous, and they don’t try to pressure you to buy products or services that you don’t need. I have always been a bit frightened of dentists, but they are very understanding. They have greatly eased my fears by explaining everything that they were going to do before they did it. I have referred multiple friends to Arverne Dental and will keep doing so. For me, they are worth the added drive. I’d rather drive a bit farther for exceptional care.
Dr. Taft is personable and highly-skilled. I’ve been a patient of hers for a while. She never tries to upsell me by pressuring me to get procedures I don’t really need. She isn’t a profit-driven dentist. She is a patient-driven dentist. At Arverne Dental, they can handle all your dental needs. The office is tidy, and the location is convenient. The receptionist is very friendly.
I had a phenomenal experience at Arverne Dental. The friendly staff isn’t money hungry, so they don’t concoct unnecessary work to try to get more of your business. The office is very clean, and they use current practices and techniques. I highly recommend Dr. Taft.
Dr. Taft is the best dentist I’ve been to in my entire life. She is very informative and trustworthy. She doesn’t try to scam you or pressure you into getting extra services. If you’re looking for a new dentist, call Arverne Dental. Honestly, even if you aren’t looking for a new dentist, I’d still encourage you to switch. It’s a great practice with high-quality care.
I have been a patient at Arverne Dental for many years and cannot imagine going anywhere else. They take such great care of their clients. I have my teeth cleaned every 6 months, and it is a positive experience. They know me by name, and it’s not just because they are looking at the appointment schedule. I’ve walked in at the same time as other people, and the receptionist has remembered our names separately. The staff undoubtedly cares about their clients. A few years ago, I had a toothache on a Friday. They stayed late to fit me in. They didn’t even act like it was a problem, which I appreciated. I have told multiple friends about Arverne Dental. These friends were given estimates from other dental practices, and Arverne Dental had the best rates. It’s nice to have found affordable dental care. Thank you Arverne Dental for all your hard work! My family and I love you!
Arverne Dental is a fantastic dental office. The staff is always at the top of their game. I’m working in the medical field now, so I know how demanding it can be, but the staff at Arverne Dental is wonderful. The receptionist is kind. She knows everyone by name. The hygienists are lovely as well. They take the time to answer all your questions. You can tell the staff loves to work here, and they love what they do. My hygienist did such a good job cleaning my teeth that I nearly fell asleep. Talk about a special talent! Dr. Taft made sure I was comfortable during every step of the process, which is nice because not all dentists have a gentle touch. Thank you Arverne Dental for your continued diligence in improving my dental care! You’ve got a winning team.
Dr. Taft is a very accomplished dentist. The Arverne Dental office is warm and inviting. The staff is very knowledgeable. At each visit, they have new tips for me to improve my oral health. These tips have helped keep me cavity free!
I’m a loyal patient of Dr. Taft. She is the kindest dentist anyone could hope for. I’ve been to other dentists, and I always dreaded going, but I don’t feel that way about Arverne Dental. Other dentists have done work that has quickly needed to be redone, but Dr. Taft gets it right on the first try. She’s even fixed some of the botched jobs from my previous dentist. I can’t recommend Dr. Taft enough. I’ve already bragged about her to all my family, friends, and co-workers because I want them to know who to turn to and who to avoid. I hope that after reading this you’ll give Dr. Taft a try. I’m thrilled I did.
How can I even begin to say enough good things about Dr. Taft and her staff at Arverne Dental? Everyone there is so helpful and honest. I’m thrilled and very impressed. I have prolonged going to the dentist and was very afraid, but I don’t feel that way anymore.
I haven’t been to the dentist in a while, so my teeth needed some extra attention. I was nervous about scheduling an appointment, but the staff was so welcoming. I didn’t feel hurried. In fact, they made me feel important. Since my current dental plan is an HMO, I enjoyed not feeling rushed. Dr. Taft was very gentle. She explained everything clearly and gave me all my options. The waiting room and the exam rooms were very clean. I’m looking forward to going back!
I don’t typically give a perfect score on online reviews because more often than not, there is room for improvement. However, Arverne Dental is as close to perfect as even I can expect. I just moved here from out of state and feared having to start over with a new dentist because I’d had a lot of work done in the past The staff is very friendly. The hygienist was incredibly kind. Overall, it was a great experience.
I love Arverne Dental. Today was my first appointment. It’s conveniently located, and the staff is very positive. It was the most gentle cleaning I’ve ever had. I almost fell asleep. Plus, they were able to accommodate my very busy schedule. They got me in within a week and even called the next day with a cancellation. Thanks Dr. Taft and Arverne Dental.
I took my kids to Arverne Dental, and the staff was phenomenal. Everyone was so kind and professional. They offered great customer service. We were new patients and will definitely be continuing to return to them for all our upcoming dental needs. Thanks, Arverne Dental.
The staff at Arverne Dental offers a very meticulous cleaning and X-ray service. The staff is fantastic and really knows how to put you at ease during every step of the process. Dr. Taft, the dentist, did a great job explaining everything to me. She went over the X-ray results and follow-up care. I will be returning to Arverne Dental for all my check-ups!
Arverne Dental is exceptional. They have the best customer service in the Arverne area, hands down. The staff does a great job of making you feel comfortable. You can trust them to take good care of you. Dr. Taft is highly-skilled and also very personable. She never pressured me; she just informed me of my options. I’m thrilled to have discovered such a great dentist, since going to the dentist has always been one of my major fears. I no longer dread going to the dentist, and I’ll be sure to refer some of my friends and family.
Arverne Dental is the best dental office I’ve been to. Dr. Taft and her staff are one of a kind. The receptionist is cordial and the hygienists are extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Taft made sure I understood exactly what was going on, which eased my nerves. She also checked up on me to make sure I was okay after the procedure. The office is refreshingly clean and relatively modern. I highly recommend that you call Arverne Dental if you’re in the market for a new dentist.
Dr. Taft and her staff at Arverne Dental are highly-qualified. I was able to schedule a same day appointment for a cleaning and x-rays. I needed a couple fillings, so they gave me an estimated quote of what my insurance would cover and offered to do the treatment that day as well. They also made an impression for my new retainer. I’m a patient for life!
Needing a new dentist can be nerve-wracking, but the online reviews of Dr. Taft convinced me to set up an appointment at Arverne Dental. I’m thrilled I did. She made me feel very comfortable and explained every part of the procedure. The other staff was equally as friendly. I’m on track to have my teeth be as good as new, and I couldn’t be happier.
I am thrilled with my experience at Arverne Dental. Dr. Taft and her staff are the best I’ve ever gone it, especially when it comes to needles. The hygienist is phenomenal too. I sincerely can’t imagine going anywhere else. I’ve had quite a bit of work done (two crowns and two fillings.) I knew that I didn’t want to return to my previous dentist, so I searched for online reviews. That’s how I found Dr. Taft. Her office is much closer to where I live, but even if it wasn’t, I would still drive out of my way to go to her. They are very good at working around my busy schedule. I adore Arverne Dental.
I switched dental offices because I felt as though I was being scammed. I hate it when people try to upsell me. My previous dentist tried to pressure me into unnecessary intense cleanings. However, Arverne Dental is different. The staff is fantastic. I trust them to be honest about my dental needs. The process there is very efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Taft and Arverne Dental.
I’ve been going to Arverne Dental for a year, and I’ve been very happy with the staff and service for my regular cleanings. I decided to write this review because I think what I’m about to say shows the true character of the staff. I messed up the date of my appointment and arrived a month early. The receptionists were so kind. They worked with the hygienists to squeeze me in for X-rays and a cleaning anyway.
It never occurred to me to write an online review of a dentist, but I have been so impressed with Arverne Dental that I felt compelled to inform others of their greatness. Dr. Taft is fantastic. I’m a grad student, so I don’t have a lot of extra money. As such, I appreciated her honesty. She doesn’t try to pressure you into getting unnecessary services just because they are expensive or trendy. During one of my cleanings, the hygienist noticed I had six potential cavities. Rather than encouraging me to have all of them filled, Dr. Taft looked more closely and recommended I try a high fluoride toothpaste to see if that would help. I agreed, and he reevaluated them at my next appointment. I liked that I didn’t have to tell him that I was struggling to make ends meet and that my insurance wasn’t the best. I got a $10 tube of toothpaste and saved myself a huge bill. Thank you, Dr. Taft. You are one of a kind! I’ll be recommending all my friends pay you a visit soon.
I have been to Dr. Lyuba Taft’s office for a while and have loved the customer service I’ve received from them. Initially, I went there because my brother paid for me to have my teeth whitened as a gift. After not having insurance for a while, I finally got to go back. This time, it was for a deep cleaning. My tech was very good at addressing my needs. We overpaid for services and were reimbursed with credit to our account. That was great. I’m a faithful patient and will be returning for years to come!
I went to Arverne Dental for a ct scan to see if I had enough bone for an implant. I know most people despise going to the dentist, and a scan is relatively simple, but I wanted to comment on the high quality care from the staff. Everyone from the receptionist to the person who did my scan was fabulous. Initially, I’d been told that I might have to wait a bit because it was short-staffed, but I barely had to wait. During the scan, they were very positive and gave clear instructions about how to move my head. I only waited 5 minutes, but they were so apologetic. It was an excellent experience.
Dr. Taft is a great dentist, every visit she gives me a new tip on how to have a healthier mouth. When I first met him I was miserable, and part of that was due to severe headaches caused by the terrible condition of my mouth. After having a few procedures done by her I am no longer in pain and my quality of life has greatly improved. She really seems to love her job, she treats you like a fellow human being rather than just another person in his chair. She wants you to be happy after you leave her office.
"This office ROCKS” isn’t just a slogan at Arverne Dental. Dr. Taft was amazing, she was very gentle and obviously knew what he was doing. I Had porcelain veneers put in for a cosmetic procedure. She made sure I wasn’t in pain. I didn’t need much of a dental block, she's just that amazing at his job. I’m very happy with the results. It was a super clean office, and I was greeted by a beautiful and friendly woman at the front desk. My comfort was her top priority. I’ve had a lot of work done over the years, but this place was the best.
Dr. Lyuba Taft is willing to work with your family and your crazy schedule. She is willing to stay after hours if needed to complete your dental work, which my family loves because of our work and school schedules. My family has been going to Dr. Lyuba Taft for five years now, and we’re very satisfied with her work. She walks you through everything she’s doing and tries to avoid the possibly painful and expensive procedures when she can. I can’t even come close to explaining how much we recommend Dr. Lyuba Taft.

General Dental Care for Everyone in Arverne, NY
General dentistry is as important to your smile as brushing and flossing your teeth. For instance, preventive exams and cleanings are necessary to avoid dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. At our Arverne, NY dental office, Dr. Taft and our team offer an array of general dental procedures to help you enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The Value of General and Preventative Dentistry
For your smile as well as your physical well-being, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the main focus of family dental care is preventing issues from developing. Besides keeping your teeth clean with good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other procedures, such as tooth fillings, dental crowns, Invisalign® aligners, and more, can also help you address existing issues before they worsen.
Caring for Your Smile in the Long Run
During your dental appointment, your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums for signs of trouble. If any are present, then he or she will recommend an appropriate course of treatment to stop the issue from growing worse. However, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on ongoing general dental care.
