I have great experiences as a patient of Dr. Bornstein and Born to Smile Dental. They are the best in Cedarhurst! Dr. Bornstein is very kind and gentle. So is his hygienist. She makes sure you are comfortable during each step of the cleaning process. I highly recommend Born to Smile Dental. They are the place to go for all your dental needs.
Born to Smile Dental is amazing! I have referred my entire family to this practice; it’s just that good. Some of my relatives even come in from out of town. Dr. Bornstein is a wonderful dentist. My 8-year-old had four cavities. His school schedule made it a bit difficult, but Born to Smile Dental made it easy to set up appointments. My son was nervous and was surprised that he was pain-free after each visit. He now looks forward to going. I love that everyone knew his name. We’ve continually been impressed by the professionalism, up-to-date technology, and kindness. Thank you Dr. Bornstein for such great care.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Bornstein and Born to Smile Dental for a year. One of my coworkers referred me when she found out I was having problems with the work my previous dentist was doing. I was crying in pain as I went in for my first visit. The hygienist and Dr. Bornstein were so kind and gentle. After a couple visits, everything was fixed, and I was pain free. I now only have to go back for regularly scheduled checkups. I highly recommend Born to Smile Dental.
I’m happy to admit that I’ve been a patient of Dr. Mark Bornstein of Born to Smile Dental for multiple years. He is a remarkable person and so are the rest of the staff members. They make going to the dentist a pleasant experience. The staff does a great job accommodating patients’ needs. The waiting room is very comfortable and inviting. I’ve referred multiple friends and family to Born to Smile Dental, and all of them have loved it. If you think you’ll save money by going elsewhere in Cedarhurst, think again.

I had a cleaning today. The staff at Born to Smile Dental was fantastic. Dr. Mark Bornstein is very detail-oriented, smart, and friendly. I highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a great dentist in the Cedarhurst area.
Born to Smile Dental in Cedarhurst. NY provides phenomenal service and care. Dr. Bornstein makes you feel at ease under his care. They have up-to-date technology and know all the latest science of their craft. I really appreciated that they didn’t try to upsell me, pressuring me to get procedures I didn’t need. I love how honest they are. It’s so nice to know I’m always going to get exceptional care.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bornstein at Born to Smile Dental for a while now, and I love it there. Dr. Bornstein is great and so is his staff. The hygienist is wonderful at each regular cleaning. They provided wonderful, high-quality dental care. The whole staff is inviting and professional.
Having not been to the dentist in 5 years, I feared what I was going to find out. Dr. Bornstein informed me of my options, which included extracting two teeth and having some other work done. He didn’t chastise me about my situation; instead, he was pleasant and honest. He extracted the teeth that day. I was able to schedule appointments for the other appointments very soon after that. The pricing was reasonable, but the best part was that I felt instant relief after the procedure. It didn’t even feel like I had teeth pulled. He’s the most gentle dentist I’ve ever been too. Thank you Dr. Bornstein and Born to Smile Dental.
I started going to Born to Smile Dental last month and have loved it. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. I appreciate that I don’t have to wait very long at my appointments. Dr. Bornstein gave me detailed explanations of what to expect and what needed to be taken care of.
I’ve been to many dentists over the year. I had an old crown needed to be replaced. After the x-ray, Dr. Bornstein explained that I would need the crown removed and replaced with an implant. I was nervous because I’d had a bad experience with implants before--on my front tooth no less. I was able to get the implant done quickly. Everything feels normal. No pain at all. They made me a flipper, an appliance that looks like my tooth, while my gums heal and I wait for my new crown. I can’t say enough positive words about the team at Born to Smile Dental. They are gentle and kind, simply the best. I’ll be scheduling my children for an appointment next!
Dr. Bornstein Born to Smile Dental is the best dentist in Cedarhurst, NY. The receptionist is incredibly kind and helpful. I completely trust her with the billing process. Dr. Bornstein was great as well. He made sure to explain everything in detail and in layman’s terms. He informed me about the current health of my teeth. The hygienist explained everything before she did it. She also informed me of the costs upfront. No surprised. Overall, I had a wonderful experience. I will definitely be a regular patient here.
I don’t have good teeth, but Dr. Bornstein did an amazing job fixing my teeth. They aren’t crooked anymore. He put caps on 3 of my front teeth, which evened out my smile. He also put a bridge on my bottom right teeth because I’ve had a missing tooth for several years. The work took multiple appointments, but each time, they made sure everything fitted correctly and looked as it should. I couldn’t be happier and would recommend Born to Smile Dental to anyone in the Cedarhurst area.
I needed emergency dental treatment today. My usual dentist’s office was closed, but thankfully I was able to get an appointment at Born to Smile Dental. Dr. Bornstein was able to fix my tooth and salvage my weekend. He was so kind and knowledgeable. It was wonderful. The office is clean, and the staff is inviting and sympathetic. Dr. Bornstein gave me detailed information about multiple treatment options. I was relaxed during the entire process. I can’t recommend Born to Smile Dental enough.
My daughter started going to Born to Smile Dental based on the recommendation of a friend. We went on Thursday to learn more about a wisdom teeth extraction. The staff was very inviting and knowledgeable. The receptionist told us about Dr. Bornstein, which really helped to ease my daughter’s dental anxiety. The assistant that did her x-rays and initial exam made her feel comfortable during the cleaning. Dr. Bornstein is very kind and gentle-mannered. He explained the pros and cons of the procedure. He’s awesome! My daughter scheduled the appointment for the next day and had all 4 wisdom teeth removed at the same time. My daughter normally opts to be sedated, but she was so comfortable here that she decided she didn’t need it. This is a big step for her, considering her dental anxiety. I’m in awe! I highly recommend Dr. Bornstein and his staff. Thank you Born to Smile! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Born to Smile Dental is wonderful. Prior to coming here, I was terrified of dentists because of a bad experience in the past. Born to Smile Dental was different. The receptionist is kind and inviting, and you never have to wait more than a few minutes for your appointment. Dr. Bornstein doesn’t judge his patients. He is meticulous and takes the time to answer all my questions to put me at ease. I appreciate that the prices are much more reasonable than the other dentists in the Cedarhurst area. I love that I was able to get a permanent crown right after my root canal. I highly recommend Born to Smile Dental to anyone who is seeking a relaxing dental environment. You won’t regret it. I might actually like going to the dentist now. Maybe.
After moving to Cedarhurst, NY, I knew I needed a dentist. I found Born to Smile Dental through the list on providers on my insurance company’s website. The best part is that it’s so close to my house. The office is clean and inviting, and the staff is friendly and kind. From the moment we entered, my son and I felt welcomed. He needed his annual checkup. Dr. Bornstein was honest. My son loved everyone. They really connected with him. After the cleaning was complete, we had some issues with our insurance. He has new insurance, and apparently, it’s new in the system too. However, the staff was very patient and called the company to get everything squared away. The office manager helped me understand my insurance. She was very professional and kind. I am so grateful for such professional service. I am going to highly recommend Born to Smile Dental to friends and family.
I made an appointment with Dr. Bornstein after reading many positive online reviews. At that point, I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time. I brushed and flossed regularly an tried to take good care of my teeth because I really don’t like visiting the dentist. However, Dr. Bornstein was different. I was pleasantly surprised by how kind and relaxed they were. Dr. Bornstein reviewed my X-rays and discussed the possibility of having my wisdom teeth removed. I appreciate how meticulous and kind the staff was. They genuinely care about their patients. I had a wonderful experience and even scheduled another cleaning. I highly recommend Born to Smile Dental.
I’ve been going to Dr. Bornstein’s practice for over a year and consider him my lifelong dentist. My previous dentist had referred me to a periodontist because of my gum recession. That same periodontist performed an outdated surgery on the same area twice in two years. Neither time worked. A second periodontist performed a third surgery that didn’t work either. I was then referred to Dr. Bornstein and didn’t expect much more than the services I’d already received from previous dentists: checkup, cleaning, etc. However, when Dr. Bornstein saw my recession issues, I explained my previous surgeries. He suggested a pinhole procedure instead. He even performed the surgery himself. Talk about a one-stop shop for all your dental needs. The pinhole procedure was far less invasive than the other type of surgery I’d had, and it worked! I can’t thank Dr. Bornstein at Born to Smile Dental enough. Thanks Dr. B!
I started going to Dr. Bornstein because I chipped my tooth. I had gone to another dentist a couple months earlier and did not receive high-quality care. Dr. Bornstein offered a different opinion and treatment plan. When he was done, my tooth actually looked better than it originally did, and it was free. My previous dentist put bonding on my teeth but didn’t do a good job. Even though the chip wasn’t big, I wanted it fixed. Dr. Bornstein offered to sand down the tooth to make it even with my other teeth. It looks great. I fully expected I’d have to drop a lot of money to get my tooth fixed and have my smile look the way I wanted it to. I couldn’t believe it when the receptionist told me I wasn’t being charged. I truly appreciate their kindness. I will definitely go back for my regular visits. I feel obligated to mention that the whole staff was great. Everyone from the receptionist to the hygienist, to the assistant was so kind. Awesome job!

My husband was the first to be referred to Born to Smile Dental. He was so impressed with the service, we decided our whole family should go there. Our daughters love the hygienists. Unfortunately, our 5-year-old needed a couple fillings for her cavities, but the appointments were quick. Dr. Bornstein did such a good job that she was actually excited to go back. Every time we go back for our regular cleanings the kids love to tell the hygienists what you’ve been doing the past 6 months.

I’ve had a lot of bad luck with dentists in the past. They charge way too much or just don’t know how to properly interact with patients. Therefore, I was impressed that Dr. Mark Bornstein and his staff at Born to Smile Dental were so gentle and accommodating. Thank goodness! I felt very relaxed during my initial exam. Thankfully, I didn’t get lectured that I needed to floss more. Instead, she offered a simple solution. Then Dr. Bornstein came in. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. I needed a filling. They were able to schedule me for it so that I could have it the same day, right after my initial exam. I had a different assistant this time. She was equally as kind as the first. I am so happy with the high quality work they did and am grateful that it wasn’t too expensive. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, stop procrastinating. Go visit Born to Smile Dental in Cedarhurst, NY.

Family Dental Care for Everyone in Cedarhurst, NY
General dentistry is as essential to your smile as brushing and flossing your teeth. For instance, checkups and cleanings are necessary to prevent dental health complications such as tooth cavities and gingivitis. At our Cedarhurst, NY dental office, Dr. Bornstein and our team offer a wide range of family dental services to help your family enjoy a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles.
The Necessity for General and Preventative Dentistry
When it comes to your oral as well as your overall health, prevention is vital. Therefore, the main focus of general dentistry is preventing issues from developing in the first place. Besides keeping your teeth clean with good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and check-ups help stop the development of bacteria-rich plaque. Other procedures, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), bone and gum grafts, dental extractions, and more, can also help you address existing issues before they worsen.
Excellent Dental Health in the Long Run
During your visit to your dentist’s office, your dentist will thoroughly inspect your teeth and oral tissues for signs of trouble. If any are present, then he or she will consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the problem from worsening. However, ensuring a lifetime of healthy smiles will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
