This was my first time meeting Dr. Stern and the staff at his Forest Hills office, but it was the best dental experience I’ve ever had. His facilities are clean, relaxing, and luxurious. I felt very comfortable and cared for, and I will be coming back for my next procedure. I highly recommend it.

Dr. Stern and his caring staff at his office in Forest Hills gave me the best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist. As they listened to my questions and addressed my concerns, they developed a trust that will be lifelong. As a physician myself, I understand the need for attention and information from the caregiver. Their fees were reasonable, and they addressed problems with my teeth that have been ongoing for years. My teeth feel great, I feel great, and I highly recommend them.
This is one of the best experiences I ever had going to the dentist and I would really like to recommend Dr Stern as a family dentist. I brought my daughter in for some work recently and not only did he get him through the procedure without any problems, but he gave me a high five at the end of the visit! Epic. It's so nice to be treated like family. Thank you, Dr. Stern, for all you do for us in Forest Hills!
You gotta love this dentist, Dr. Stern. He is so cool! But that is just the beginning. I was recommended to Dr. Harold Stern’s office in Forest Hills by a good friend of mine and they really gave me the royal treatment from start to finish. They are nice and work with your insurance to get you a good deal. They also keep you informed about what is happening and explain anything that you are unsure about. From start to finish, this place is the best!
Dr. Stern and his staff at his Forest Hills location are very kind and very polite, the exams are very detailed and they explain to you what you need to have done patiently. They were also honest about costs and great about following up with you. 😊

I am not a big fan of dentists, but I needed to find one in Forest Hills since the pain started. I thought it would take a long time to make an appointment, but Dr. Stern’s office was able to get me in later that day. It was all very simple and the staff walked me through it all. Dr. Stern himself took care of the tooth extraction and made sure I felt no pain at all. Let me say again, I hate the dentist. But I do love Dr. Stern!!!
Nobody likes going to the dentist. Correction: nobody used to like going to the dentist. Dr. Stern’s office over in Forest Hills works to make the experience as good as it can possibly be, and then some. Their equipment is very state-of-the-art, their staff is confident in using the technology, and everybody makes sure that their patient understands the terms and methods being used.

I can’t imagine moving too far away from Forest Hills, because I could never find another dentist’s office that cares about me as much as he does.
Dr. Stern’s office is a must for Forest Hills residents. My husband recommended them to me when I was new to the area, and they were so helpful. I didn’t have insurance, and they still scheduled me for a consultation. As soon as I met the crew here, I felt comfortable working with them. Even though I had not been to a dentist in more than 10 years, I knew that they would be able to help me. When I got insurance, I was so excited to go back. Now, I have been a few times and it has been without a hitch. I recommend visiting them for any dental work that you need done.

When I had a scheduling issue where I didn’t appear on the schedule, they were quick to accommodate me and saw me right away. The doctor treated the tooth sensitivity I was having and cleaned my teeth. They actually did it all in one appointment, so I didn’t have to have a second one. Dr. Harold is a good dentist. He answers all of my questions and explains any issues that I might have.

I wish I could have found Dr. Stern sooner! I stayed with my previous dentist for 36 years because of a professional relationship. There was hardly any wait time before my appointment. The staff in the Forest Hills location were so friendly and proud of their jobs! Dr. Harold was kind and approachable. My cleaning was painless and left a beautiful smile! He was able to communicate with me about my concerns. I felt relieved! This is great because I need a cavity filled and bridge work completed. My two children will also be patients of Dr. Harold! I am beyond thrilled that Dr. Harold has exceeded my expectations!

Family Dental Care for Patients of all Ages in Forest Hills, NY
General dental care is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For example, checkups and cleanings are necessary to prevent dental health complications such as tooth decay and gum disease. At our Forest Hills, NY dental office, Dr. Stern 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 Dentistry
In both your oral and overall health, prevention is vital. Therefore, the primary focus of general dentistry is preventing dental diseases 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 treatments, 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 grow worse.
Maintaining Good Oral Health in the Long Run
At your general dentistry appointment, your dentist will carefully perform a comprehensive dental exam 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, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on ongoing general dental care.
