I’d never actually left the dentists thinking “wow, that was great,” but I did when I left Dr. Dostis’ office. His practice offers a phenomenal experience because the staff is personable and they know how to provide great customer service. Dr. Dostis is very knowledgeable. I trust him immensely. The receptionists and hygienists are very accommodating and kind. I discovered this practice thanks to online reviews and couldn’t be happier.
I’d avoided the dentist for years, and because of it, I had a ton of plaque buildup behind a teeth-straightening-bar behind my lower teeth. Dr. Dostis was incredibly friendly, patient, and informative. He was able to remove years of plaque and tartar efficiently and painlessly. I had a deep clean, and my teeth feel as good as new. I’m thrilled with the quality of work I received at Ridge Dental Associates. I’ve found my go-to dental practice.
Dr. Dostis is an incredible dentist. He and his staff took the absolute best care of my daughter and me at our last appointment. Ridge Dental Associates is an outstanding dental practice. I greatly appreciate my coworker for recommending this place. It's nice to have finally found a dentist who genuinely cares about his patients and staff. Their office runs very smoothly and punctually. I couldn't help but pass the good news along to others who might read this. Dr. Dostis is the best there is in Brooklyn.
Dr. Dostis did a fantastic job with my cleaning. He informed me about the health of my gums and teeth in a way that I have never experienced before. He advised me about steps I could take to reduce my tooth sensitivity. He also didn?t try to pressure me into purchasing products or services that I didn?t actually need. His honesty was refreshing. The front desk staff was kind and helpful too. Call now and take advantage of his great rates.
I needed a Brooklyn dentist, so I’m glad I chose Dr. Dostis. I went in for my regular cleaning and had my wisdom teeth removed. I had a positive experience. The staff is kind and accommodating. They communicate well, so you don’t have to be intimidated. I like that they made sure I was fully aware of all my options and payment opportunities. I highly recommend Ridge Dental Associates.
A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Dostis. I actually work near the office but had never actually gone in. Dr. Dostis is careful and conservative. He doesn’t try to upsell you. Instead, he only recommends necessary procedures. You can really trust his word. The hygienists are personable and gentle, too. I highly recommend Ridge Dental Associates.
Dr. Dostis is excellent. I had previously had 2 wisdom teeth removed by two other dentists, and both times, it was a terrible experience. The first dentist did an awful job, but the second dentist nearly killed me. He numbed me with shots but didn’t operate until 90 minutes later when everything had worn off. I felt everything. It was literal torture. Those experiences were several years ago, but since then, my wife found Dr. Dostis. He recommended taking out my third wisdom tooth to prevent a wisdom tooth in order to prevent needing a root canal. When I went in for the procedure, I had flashbacks. The process only took a few minutes, and it was painless. It was the complete opposite of my previous experience. I think meeting Dr. Dostis was the first step to recovery. He has restored my faith in dentistry.
My 7-year-old normally goes to a pedodontist, but she really wanted to go to my dentist, so I finally gave in and brought her to Ridge Dental Associates. Her lower permanent teeth were ready to come in, but her baby teeth weren’t loose yet. My daughter was anxiously awaiting the tooth fairy. Dr. Dostis was so patient with her even though we were the last appointment of the day. He didn’t rush. He helped pull her 2 lower teeth that were loose. My daughter was so excited to have two souvenirs to take home and put under her pillow. She told me it didn’t even hurt. That’s exactly what a mom wants to hear. She’s now begging to go back to Ridge Dental Associates so she can have her top two front baby teeth removed. I sure hope the tooth fairy is ready.
Ignore the poor reviews. I’ve been here a few separate times for different procedures, including extractions and a deep cleaning. Personally, I dread going to the dentist. However, I’ve never had a problem at Ridge Dental Associates. I never had to wait upon arrival, and the staff always made sure I was okay before proceeding with any part of the procedure. They give you numbing medication if you want it. They are also really good about informing you of the process and post care procedures. I appreciate the time they took to answer all my questions. Dr. Dostis and his staff are informative, knowledgeable, and skilled. They provide excellent customer service. Keep it up!
I pretty much hated the dentist until I was referred to Ridge Dental Associates. I owe Dr. Dostis a debt of gratitude because he is the one who helped me regain my self-confidence. I needed a few root canals and had chipped some teeth. I was really pessimistic about my teeth because I had a chipped front tooth. One of my side teeth was chipped too. It was very noticeable, so I lost a lot of confidence in my appearance. I didn’t even want to talk to anyone. Thankfully, Dr. Dostis was able to fix everything. I didn’t feel any pain, and the results look so natural. The office was very calming and clean. I appreciated the high tech equipment. The entire staff was patient and welcoming. They were very gentle during the process. I will never go anywhere else for dental work. The prices are reasonable, definitely worth it. Thank you, Dr. Dostis. You saved me smile.
Ridge Dental Associates is the best place in Brooklyn when it comes to caring for your teeth. People say they hate going to the dentist, and maybe they do, but they clearly haven’t been to Dr. Dostis yet. Thanks to Dr. Dostis and his team, I’m no longer one of those people who dread the dentist. My biggest aversion was the shots. The pain was a close second. However, with Dr. Dostis everything is so efficient that before you know it you’re halfway done. Honestly one time, I didn’t even realize he started because he was so gentle. Going to Ridge Dental Associates has given me my confident smile back. They give incredible service and have great amenities. You can’t help but love going. I can’t wait for my next cleaning, but in the meantime, I’ll be referring all my friends and family. Gotta spread the love, right? If you need a dentist in Brooklyn, call Ridge Dental Associates.
I finally went in to have a crown made for one of my molars. Luckily, my insurance made it more affordable, but the receptionist was very helpful with the intake and checkout process. Appointments run very punctually here. Dr. Dostis did an excellent job with my teeth. He is efficient, meticulous, and gentle all at the same time. I greatly value the high quality service I experienced today. I even had zoom whitening done. I had been told it wouldn’t work and that my teeth wouldn’t be any whiter, but Dr. Dostis assured me it would be worth it. He was right. I’m very impressed with this practice and love my new smile.
I’ve been to my fair share of dentists in my lifetime. Given the amount of dental work I have required, normally going to the dentist is quite the ordeal. However, with Dr. Dostis, it was easy. My teeth and smile look better than ever, and each visit has been pain-free. Dr. Dostis is efficient, so you never have to wait long, yet you still receive expert work. The practice is clean and sanitary, which was a must for a germaphobe like me. All in all, it’s been a wonderful experience at Ridge Dental Associates. I no longer dread going to the dentist.
To say that I’m a wuss when it comes to going to the dentist is definitely not an exaggeration. I broke a tooth but ignored it until a friend of mine referred me to Ridge Dental Associates. I was very nervous about going to my appointment, but the staff did an excellent job of reassuring me. I needed immediate care, and they explained everything to me thoroughly and respectfully. Having had a negative experience with a dentist as a child, it was nice to have people who were patient with me so that I didn’t have a panic attack. The staff also helped me prioritize the work that needed to be done. They worked with me to come up with a plan that fit both my dental needs and my budget. Plus, they saved my tooth! I will be recommending this practice to multiple friends and family. I’m thrilled to have found Dr. Dostis. He does high-quality work, and his staff and he make sure I feel safe. Thanks for the painless experience!
I didn’t have dental insurance as a kid, so I barely went to the dentist. When I told the staff at Ridge Dental Associates, they didn’t judge me. Even though I have had gone to the dentist much, all my previous experiences were negative. This time, I was in a great deal of pain. The person who did CT scan was very friendly and efficient. My hygienist noticed that my hands were shaking and asked if I was nervous. I admitted I was, and she was so kind. I was a little cold, so she got me a blanket. Dr. Dostis was great. He numbed me very thoroughly and talked me through each step of the process. For the first time ever, I didn’t feel an ounce of pain, and my jaw didn’t lock. The cleaning itself only took half an hour. I loved the whole staff; they were positive and trustworthy. Coming to Ridge Dental Associates in Brooklyn has helped rid me of my dental fears.
Ridge Dental Associates is the best place in Brooklyn for dental work. I was nervous about my appointment on Wednesday, but it turned out great. I know a lot of people fear going to the dentist, so it’s great to find a place that knows how to give you a positive experience. I’m thrilled and pleasantly surprised to have found Dr. Dostis. I no longer fear going to the dentist. He is the best dentist I have ever been to. I was beyond impressed. He was meticulous, really taking his time with the process and when informing me about the procedure. He was so nice. The best part, though, was that I didn’t feel any pain. Dr. Dostis checked on me every few minutes to make sure I was doing okay. I’ve never had a doctor care that much about his patients. For those looking for an excellent dentist and dental practice, Ridge Dental Associates is my top choice. I can’t wait to tell my family and friends about this place. Once I’m finished with these procedures, I’ll be going back for my regular appointments.
I was so scared to get a root canal, but I knew I couldn’t prolong it anymore. The pain was too intense. Thankfully, the staff at Ridge Dental Associates was able to accommodate an emergency appointment on a Saturday morning. When I left, I was so relieved and wasn’t in any pain at all. I am normally a scaredy-cat when it comes to dental work, but they were so accommodating. They gave me laughing gas and made sure I was numbed very well. Overall, it was a positive experience. The entire staff was charismatic and reassuring. I highly recommend them to anyone who is normally afraid of the dentist. They will answer any questions you have. The wonderful experience is worth the commute to Brooklyn.
I had some pain in my upper molar, so I called Ridge Dental Associates. They did x-rays and an assessment. Dr. Dostis was excellent. He explained my treatment options and prices. The good news is that he was able to save my tooth even though it was already in poor shape. I’ve always hated going to the dentist because of my sensitivity and low pain tolerance. However, I didn’t feel a thing. The staff at Ridge Dental Associates is highly-skilled. I highly recommend their practice.
I returned from another cleaning at Ridge Dental Associates. I normally need a numbing agent, but the hygienist was so gentle that I didn’t feel any pain. I tend to gag when having dental x-rays done, but Dr. Dostis gave me a tablet that did wonders. I didn’t have a single issue during the x-ray process. My 11-year-old son also goes to this office. He was so nervous, but the entire staff was incredibly kind. He didn’t experience any pain and was cavity free. He loved the electric toothbrush he was given. Thanks for everything! See you for our next appointment in 6 months. I cannot say enough good things about this practice.
Dr. Dostis and his staff at Ridge Dental Associates are the best. I went in for a root canal today. I hadn’t been into the office for two and a half years, yet the staff remembered everything we’d talked about at my last visit. I was so impressed. I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to going to the dentist, but the root canal went great. I didn’t experience any pain. They numbed me well and made sure that I was comfortable before they started the procedure. The procedure was 7 hours ago, and I have yet to be in pain. The prescription they gave me has worked wonders. I’d give them more than 5 stars if I could.
Dr. Dostis is a wonderful dentist. Whenever I go to his practice, I feel well cared for and completely at ease. Typically, I’m afraid of dental work, but I’ve never had a poor experience at Ridge Dental Associates. The staff is personable, and my visits are pain free. The hygienists do a great job. I highly recommend this practice. It’s the best in Brooklyn!
I brought my daughter here for her first dentist visit after seeing a lot of positive reviews online, and I’m so glad I found this place. Everything went great. The reception ladies were knowledgeable, and the technician who did the cleaning was very nice. Dr. Dostis was kind and nice to my son and explained everything he was going to do thoroughly to me. You can tell he loves what he does. I wish I could find a doctor like this in Brooklyn for my daughter’s pediatric care. I can’t recommend Ridge Dental Associates, P.C. enough.
My kids use to the hate the dentist until we moved to Brooklyn and we found Dr. Dostis in the Bayridge area. My oldest daughter who is 23 still goes to him and plans to for a long time. The entire office is awesome. The front desk people are always friendly and easy to talk to. The hygienists are kind and knowledgeable, and so are the billing girls. Everyone is great. They truly care about their patients and their comfort. The office design is very kid-friendly with TVs, sunglasses for the bright lights and flavored teeth-cleaning creams. The waiting room has video games and toys, this place is just awesome. My youngest son had a cavity and he was extremely nervous, but he didn’t even see the needle. He thought it was a cream that made him numb. He’s only 9, so I think I’ll let him keep thinking that. He’s been going to her since he was 5 and he loves him. He used to hate the dentist, but thanks to Dr. Dostis he likes going. They give out no cavity treats and free toys, which he really enjoys. I wish she was an adult dentist too. This place is truly the best! Your kids will love this place.
This is the best dentist in Bayridge I’ve ever been to. I’ve had an exam, a base cleaning, and wisdom tooth extraction surgery, all done by Dr. Dostis. He is friendly and knowledgeable and answered all my questions thoroughly and patiently. He really cares about his patients. I was anxious about my wisdom teeth surgery but Dr. Dostis told me everything would be all right and I trusted him. I had zero pain during the surgery. I was surprised when he called me a day after the surgery to see how I was doing, and he even gave me some helpful tips.

Family Dental Care for Everyone in Brooklyn, NY
General dental care is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For instance, checkups and cleanings are necessary to avoid dental issues like tooth cavities and gingivitis. At our Brooklyn, NY dental office, Dr. Dostis and our team offer a variety of general dentistry treatments to help your family enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The Necessity for General Dentistry
For your smile as well as your physical well-being, prevention is vital. Therefore, the primary focus of family dental care is preventing issues from developing in the first place. Besides brushing and flossing your teeth every day, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the formation of plaque and tartar. Other treatments, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), bone and gum grafts, dental extractions, and more, can also help you manage existing issues before they grow worse.
Caring for Your Smile in the Long Run
During your dental appointment, your dentist will carefully perform a comprehensive dental exam for signs of trouble. Then he or she will consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the issue from growing worse. However, ensuring a lifetime of healthy smiles will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
