I’ve had the same dentist for most of my life, and I loved him. He was the best dentist in town, and I traveled from all over to see him. However, I moved pretty far away and would have had to get a hotel room and drive nearly 8 hours just for a dental visit, so I needed to find a new dentist. I initially booked a visit with Dr. Siegel at University Dental in Bayside, NY, but I couldn’t get in right away. I went to another dentist in the meantime, but that didn’t go well. So I scheduled an appointment a few months out for Dr. Siegel. Let me tell you - it was so worth the long wait! Dr. Siegel and his staff are amazing. They’re so nice and detail oriented. They had the latest high-tech equipment, which I’d never seen at any other dental office I had been to. If the dentist makes you nervous, I believe University Dental can help! I almost didn’t want to post this review because I don’t want to share him, but they absolutely deserve all the praise they can get!
Dr. Siegel at University Dental in Bayside is phenomenal! He thoroughly explains everything so that you understand what’s going on, and sometimes, they even have extended office hours. The office itself is beautiful and modern. They even moisturize your lips before cleaning your teeth, so they don’t dry out. I highly recommend them to everyone!
I can’t even remember the last time I had a great time at the dentist. Dr. Siegel and his staff were so sweet and hilarious. Every time I know I need to see the dentist, I have to mentally prepare for the terrible experience, but this wasn’t the case at University Dental in Bayside! I wish everyone who worked in the healthcare industry were as accommodating at Dr. Siegel, but that’s probably asking too much.
I had the best dental experience ever at University Dental in Bayside, NY. Well, I had the best experience one could with a broken tooth! They got me an appointment rather quickly, which I was grateful for because of my broken tooth. Dr. Siegel was highly skilled and I could tell as he was laying the anesthetic, cleaning out the tooth, and then filling it. He was very direct but self-assured and positive. He really listened to me and came up with a solution that I was happy with. He’s really the best dentist near me and has the most amazing staff! Highly recommended!
I just moved to Bayside, NY, and I saw that Dr. Siegel at University Dental had great reviews on Doctors Network. I decided to try him out, and I’m so glad I did. I loved being there and instantly felt relaxed. I love that he has the newest technology, and I felt like I could trust him. I will most certainly be back, and he will be my new Bayside dentist!
Dr. Siegel at University Dental is the best dentist near me. I just had a routine cleaning, but he called me a day later to ask if I was doing alright. I don’t know of any other dentist who does that! It’s so nice and refreshing! Their location in Bayside is beautiful with a lot of parking. The office is awesome - it’s welcoming and feels very spa-like. It doesn’t even have that usual “dental office aroma.” The receptionist is sweet and friendly. You can tell the employees love their jobs because they provide the best care!
I had the best experience at University Dental, and I almost didn’t want to go home! It’s conveniently located in Bayside, NY with places to park and a calm atmosphere. The dental hygienist was careful and explained what she was doing. Dr. Siegel was competent and addressed my concerns. Everyone should come here! Also, the receptionist was amazing, dealt with my insurance company, and even called my old dentist to retrieve my dental records.
After going to another dentist in Bayside that I didn’t like, I gave University Dental a call. Dr. Siegel is so wonderful and funny! I’ve never looked forward to a dentist office visit until I met Dr. Siegel. Now, I get excited about every appointment! If you’re looking for a new dentist, I highly recommend this office; you’ll be glad you went!
University Dental is just incredible. I can now say that I get excited my teeth cleanings, and I’m someone who is usually terrified of the dentist due to previous experiences. The team is very considerate, supportive, and smart. The office is well organized and relaxing. Dr. Siegel and his staff truly care about you, and their prices are very reasonable. I highly suggest everyone try University Dental for themselves! It’s the best, top-notch dentist in Bayside!
I’m amazed! My boss recommended I see Dr. Siegel at University Dental in Bayside, NY. I had just broken my veneer and was looking for a way to get it fixed without replacing it because veneers are super expensive, and I couldn’t afford it. Dr. Siegel was by far the nicest and most understanding and caring DDS I’ve ever been to. He really does care about his patients and he treated me like I was a long-time friend. He truly wanted me to be happy and healthy. Though it’s purely a cosmetic issue, he fixed my veneer and gave me my confidence back! Plus, he even examined my mouth and told me that I needed a few fillings. Instead of just fixing my veneer and pushing me out the door, he took care of me and didn’t try to get me to agree to unnecessary procedures. He didn’t rush the appointment, and he thoroughly answered any questions I had. He’s very sweet and genuinely cares about his patients. His bedside manner, the staff, and the office seriously set the bar high. I’m thankful he was able to see me, and I’m actually kind of excited for my next appointment. This is coming from someone who used to be afraid of the dentist! I’m eternally grateful for Dr. Siegel!
I’ve been living in Bayside, NY for a few years, and I was dragging my feet looking for a new dentist. The good ones are hard to find, but I have to admit, Dr. Siegel is one of the best dentists near me. One visit and you’ll fall in love. They let you watch TV or listen to music as they work on you. I just got a filling in my mouth, and Dr. Siegel was so careful that I didn’t feel anything. He had my tooth as good as new in a short amount of time. I’ve had some bad dental experiences, but ever since I found University Dental, I won’t leave (at least until Dr. Siegel retires). Give him a call - he’s one of the best dentists in Bayside!
I found Dr. Siegel a few years back when I finally got tired of my last dentist. I’ve had some pretty horrible dental experiences where I left with broken trust and a broken heart, so I thought I was going to be let down yet again. I was pleasantly surprised! From my first appointment until my latest appointment at University Dental in Bayside, NY, I’ve had many great experiences! I was really hesitant at first and kept waiting for the inevitable bad experience, but it never came! Now, I get excited when I have to go to the dentist. As soon as you set foot in the door until you head out, they take amazing care of you. They make sure you’re relaxed, and if not, they’ll do everything they can to help calm your nerves. Thank you, Dr. Siegel and his staff! As long as I’m in Bayside, he will be my dentist, and if I ever have to leave, I’ll have to figure out a way to keep seeing him!
It’s no surprise that University Dental in Bayside has so many great reviews! I called them yesterday because I was in a lot of pain and needed an emergency extraction. The receptionist listened to my problem and was able to get me in the same day. When I got there, I told them what happened, and they didn’t judge me at all for my dental health or financial problems, unlike other dentists I’ve seen. They were very understanding and helped me as best as they could to resolve the issue. I really appreciated it because though I don’t have a lot of money, I do want a healthy mouth and to be pain-free. Dr. Siegel is hilarious and very sweet, but that’s not why I love going to him. For me, the most important characteristics of a dentist are empathy, skill, timeliness, and accuracy. Plus, I felt no pain. Extracting a tooth without sedation isn’t easy, but I didn’t feel a thing. And I only paid half the price of what my previous dentist estimated.
I’m so amazed by Dr. Siegel’s office! I just moved to Bayside, NY and needed a new dentist, and that’s when I found a lot of great reviews for Dr. Siegel. I was pretty nervous due to some negative dental experiences in the past. I went to him because I had tooth pain, and after taking a look and getting some pictures, he found another problem in a nearby tooth. One of my old fillings had dissolved underneath the surface of the tooth, which you couldn’t see without x-ray imaging! University Dental practice was understanding and accommodating as they fit me in really quickly. I highly suggest you check out this practice!
Dr. Siegel is the best dentist near me! As soon as you set foot in the office, the staff is ready to welcome you, and the lobby is very relaxing. Each cleaning room has a flat screen TV, so you can watch TV as they clean your teeth. When Dr. Siegel checks on you, you don’t even need to wait on your x-rays because they’re right there on the TV. I’ve never had to wait long at all. I never felt like Dr. Siegel was trying to push me out the door, and he answered all my questions in great detail. I have had my teeth whitened in his office, and he’s the only dentist I’d ever want to do any cosmetic work on my teeth. I suggest you check out University Dental in Bayside, NY!
I just moved back to Bayside, NY and have been looking for a dentist. I looked online and saw a lot of positive reviews about University Dental, so I decided to check them out. Their office is friendly and welcoming. The staff is proficient, and the hygienists are skilled at what they do. Dr. Siegel’s consult was thorough and detailed, and he looked over my x-rays with me. He didn’t pressure me to get any unnecessary procedures, which was a breath of fresh air. All in all, the experience at University Dental was great. They’re now my new go-to dentist, and I even told my boyfriend he should go see them. Now, he hasn’t been to the dentist in 10 years, so he had a different experience, which was to be expected. Call University Dental to schedule an appointment; I guarantee you’ll love them!
Dr. Siegel is the best dentist near me and in all of Bayside. I scheduled an appointment at University Dental after not being to the dentist for 3 years (I was a busy grad student). They not only fit me in their schedule for a non-urgent visit within two days, but the service and care they gave me was incredible. Dr. Siegel was very nice and didn’t shame me for not going to the dentist regularly or not flossing routinely. When I called to ask how much an exam would be without insurance, they gave me a price, and that’s exactly what I paid before I left. It included a cleaning, xrays, and a fluoride treatment. Highly recommended!
During a dental exam at another office, the dentist said my fillings needed to be redone, but I went to Dr. Siegel for a second opinion. He told me that my fillings were perfect and didn’t need any work. I trust him because his father and grandfather were also dentists. I just really hate when dentists try to perform unnecessary procedures. University Dental in Bayside, NY is the best dental office near me! His staff are very friendly and competent. I suggest you give University Dental a try!
I use the internet to determine which doctor I should see and which restaurant I should go to, so when I needed to leave my dentist of 28 years, I wanted to pick the right one. I entered the search criteria into Doctors Network, and when I stumbled across University Dental in Bayside, NY with all positive reviews, I had to check them out. I was highly impressed. I took my family of five to this dental office, and we were all done a little over an hour later. We all had our teeth cleaned and X-rays taken. We paid in full because we don’t have dental insurance, and it was surprisingly affordable! The staff couldn’t have been nicer, and Dr. Siegel is just amazing. Fast, top-notch service with a low price tag? What more could I want?! It left me wondering why I didn’t leave my old dentist sooner! University Dental put a huge smile on my face!
Dr. Siegel and his staff are incredible! My previous dentist sold his practice to a corporate dental group, and it was awful. I was looking for a new dentist, and I received many personal and online recommendations for University Dental in Bayside. Dr. Siegel’s staff is awesome and did a great job! You can tell that they care deeply for all their patients, and they treat you like a person, not a number. I suggest you visit Dr. Siegel at University Dental!
I can’t say enough good things about University Dental in Bayside, NY! I will definitely be going back. I also told my boyfriend about Dr. Siegel, and he made an appointment to get some cavities filled. The office is comfortable and cute, they offer free parking, and the assistants are so kind. Thank you for the great service!
Dr. Siegel is incredible! He’s so nice and helpful, as is his staff. The hygienist isn’t the friendliest but does a fantastic job, so I’m not complaining. My only issue is that they never informed me of the cost before starting my necessary root canal, which ended up being a lot more than I expected, so just be mindful of that. Aside from that, the treatment and care I received were great! I love the University Dental office in Bayside, NY!
University Dental is absolutely the best dentist in Bayside, NY. As soon as I walked into the office, I knew I’d be taken care of. I had been in a lot of pain, and they were able to fit me in relatively quickly. Dr. Siegel and his staff are meticulous and will explain what’s going on and what to expect. They made my horrible, painful experience a lot better than it should have been. I had a tooth filled that almost needed a root canal, but I felt totally calm. I was so happy I found this incredible dental practice -- they don’t come around very often!
I guarantee you’ll love Dr. Siegel at University Dental in Bayside, NY. I dread going to the dentist like I dread tax time and death, but I know I have to go. They’ve recently remodeled the office, and it looks great. The front office staff is very friendly and fast, and your appointment always starts on time. I usually book my cleaning appointment in the early morning so that I can get in and out and then go to work. I don’t have dental insurance, but they’re very affordable. Dr. Siegel is friendly and relatable as are the hygienists I’ve seen. Their office is super high tech and computerized. The x-rays are on the computer, and they all talk via email. Even the appointment reminders are sent electronically. The best part is that they make your next appointment before you even leave the exam chair.
I used to be afraid of going to the dentist because of all the bad experiences I’ve had, including not getting the proper dosage of medication and a numbing agent. But Dr. Siegel is an expert, and there’s nothing he can’t do. I didn’t feel any pain except a tiny 5-7-second pinch where he thoroughly numbed up my gums. He waits for about 5-7 minutes for the numbing meds to work, and then he comes back and pokes you in certain spots, asking if you can feel it. But he must have some strong medication because I didn’t feel anything! You won’t even realize that your tooth has been removed. Remember, Dr. Siegel is a specialist, not a general dentist, so it’s a little pricier than your average dentist. Following the procedure, I received some very strong pain meds, and I didn’t feel any pain whatsoever. Of course, your insurance will determine how much you have to pay, which could be thousands depending on the procedure. If you’re looking for a specialist, check out Dr. Siegel at University Dental in Bayside, NY -- being is absolutely priceless!
I’ve been going to Dr. Siegel’s office for 5 years now, and I originally hated going to the dentist, but now I enjoy my visits, thanks to Dr. Siegel. Dr. Siegel is easy to talk to and friendly. He makes me feel very comfortable. He is a comprehensive but conservative dentist, he won’t try to get you to pay for things you don’t need. He only does what’s needed and takes notes on things that may become an issue. The staff is kind, gentle, and easy to talk to. They provide the best dental care in Bayside, NY, if you’re looking for a top cosmetic dentist you should come here.
The entire staff is kind and welcoming. The place is modern and they provide great customer service. My former dentist in Baysie told me I needed a crown, and since I wasn’t in any pain I decided to get a second opinion and came to University Dental, and they told me I didn’t need a crown. This place is great, and they won’t try to make you get treatments you don't need. They actually care about their patients and want them to save money. I’m actually looking forward to my next appointment, and I’m so glad I found my Bayside dentist. Anyone looking for a new dentist should come here, they make your teeth look great. I saved over a thousand dollars just by getting a second opinion. Love this place.
