Howard Beach Dental has a friendly and supportive staff and highly skilled and talented dentist, Dr. Harold Stern. After having my jaw wired shut and teeth repaired and replaced, I know this is the only place for me for as long as I live in Howard Beach, and maybe even after that. I now take my whole family.
Dr. Stern is not only a skilled professional, he is an artist. His attention to detail and aesthetics is remarkable. The staff of Howard Beach Dental was friendly and polite both during the procedure and through follow-up. I take my entire family to him, and I’d recommend him to anyone in Howard Beach for any type of dental procedure, routine or cosmetic, that they may need.
Someone recommended that I come to Howard Beach Dental and it was a good recommendation. Dr. Harold Stern is very professional, and his staff is kind. It makes me happy to go to the dentist. The hygienist is so good at cleaning teeth and makes you feel really good. Thank you, Howard Beach Dental, for providing all of us Howard Beach residents with such great care!
I had to get a lot of work done recently and Dr. Stern helped me out a lot. I needed 2 root canals, an extraction, a bone graft, and dental crowns. Despite this, I did really well at Howard Beach Dental, and I had a painless experience (even when getting anesthetized). I really love the needles they use because I literally couldn't feel any pain whatsoever. They listened to me, they worked with me and they treated me great. There's no regrets in visiting Dr. Stern! If you are in Howard Beach, this is the place.
You know that a dentist office is good when you could see yourself being friends with the staff of Howard Beach Dental! I absolutely love going to this dentist office here in Howard Beach which is strange because I usually HATE going to the dentist. The front desk clerk is so friendly and nice. Then there is the hygienist, who is excellent at the job and makes great conversation the entire time. I had a 1-2 hour procedure but I felt the time just fly by hanging out with the staff here. Then there is Dr. Stern, who is so kind and compassionate that you can't help but calm down. I won't lie, I needed a LOT of work done but by the time I left I felt like I just came in for a filling. The place is like a well-oiled clock - everyone is knowledgeable, friendly and knows exactly what they're doing. I've been telling people this for a long time but now it's time to tell the world!
When I had an accident playing sports and lost my front tooth, I started looking online for places in Howard Beach and found Howard Beach Dental. I gave them a ring, and Dr. Stern was able to get me in and fixed up right away, thanks to his expertise and awesome technology.
I despise the dentist. It is so weird that nerves connect your entire body to me…one mistake and you are in a world of pain. I tried a dentist in Howard Beach once before, and it went okay just very over budget for me. I then came to Howard Beach Dental. Dr. Stern did a fantastic job, and the deep cleaning went well, they went to great lengths to make sure I was comfortable the whole time. They even took care of the issues I was having with grinding my teeth at night! This is my new dentist for sure!
Howard Beach Dental as an office is very accessible and in an awesome location in Howard Beach. The staff is very welcoming and attuned to their patient’s needs. When you have an upcoming procedure, they don’t just schedule it and tell you to deal with the pain but help you alleviate it until the problem is fixed. Overall, everyone in the office was efficient and helpful, and I am so thankful for Dr. Stern!
The workers at Howard Beach Dental are a blessing. They work hard to suit their patients’ needs and their vast experience in working the complicated systems is obvious, which makes their patients feel very safe. They also work hard to facilitate a personal connection. I know all of them by name. I am so lucky to have found a dentist as good as Dr. Stern. Thank you for being the best in Howard Beach!
A couple of years ago, I had two rotten teeth that needed to be removed. I didn’t have a dentist at that time in Howard Beach, so I did some online research and found Howard Beach Dental. The visit was booked quickly and easily. The appointment itself ran so smoothly-- they definitely knew what they were doing! The recovery process was also smooth, and I only had to take a couple of mild painkillers for a day or two after the surgery. Financially, they gave me many options, and I paid a lot less than I would have at another dentist’s. Dr. Stern and his coworkers are wonderful! They treated me like a friend, not just another patient. I have been telling my friends to use him ever since my visit!
This is one of the best dentists in Howard Beach. I love Howard Beach Dental. The staff is really kind and Dr. Harold Stern is cool. You don?t feel like you?re being judged which helps to relax his patients. Another awesome thing is how up to date the office is with brand new equipment.
Dr. Stern is the best dentist in Howard Beach! He's so caring and understanding, it's more to him than just being a health provider. He actually loves people, it's not about the money with him. He is heaven sent, trust me! I cannot see myself ever going anywhere else. He's very professional and goes above and beyond when it comes to his job. Love all the staff at this place! Great experience each time! :)
5-stars for sure; add me to the list of happy reviewers! I hadn’t been to the dentist in 1-1/2 to 2 years and I was really anxious. I saw all these reviews about people who wanted to go back, and I couldn’t believe it. I’d been searching for a dentist that wouldn’t be too far away from Howard Beach, and really, I was so blown away. Dr. Stern was nice and used such a gentle technique; he was great. I really dreaded my previous dentists, but Dr. Stern was finished before he even started it seemed. Normally, a dental technician does the cleaning, but Dr. Stern did it himself. Oh, and the office at Howard Beach Dental is really clean, and gorgeous actually. I too have to say that I am looking forward to returning in 6 months for my next cleaning.
I was here on December 26th for my appointment, and it was the first time I had been to a dentist in over 5 years. My experiences have been so terrible with dentists in the past. But my experiences with Howard Beach Dental were really different and so I just have to write about it. The establishment is beautiful, to start. The offices are the nicest I have ever seen for dentist offices in Howard Beach – really inviting. Dr. Stern is so professional and so nice. I almost can’t wait to return because my visit was so enjoyable.
Dr. Harold Stern was so professional and did a great job explaining everything to me so that I could understand. Every step during the procedure was well explained and I always knew what to expect; even when it was just a cleaning. Howard Beach Dental is great, and I highly recommend it to all the residents of Howard Beach.
I can’t say enough about Howard Beach Dental! I have been going to this dentist in Howard Beach for years. The staff makes you feel welcomed when you enter the office. Dr. Stern has made me feel comfortable through all of my procedures over the years including, crowns, a bridge, and even cavities. Dr. Stern is informative and explains all procedures to make sure you are comfortable. I wish I found them earlier!
I was reassured when I found Dr. Stern’s practice because I am particular when it comes to dental care for my family. Howard Beach Dental is organized, clean, and in top-notch condition. The staff is helpful to take your mind off the cleaning. The tools and technology seemed new. Dr. Stern is a great communicator, competent in his field, and very friendly! I would highly recommend this dental office in Howard Beach.
Hey all! I just had a follow-up appointment with Dr. Stern. He is amazing! His compassion for his patients, effort, and attention to detail shows through his work. He is genuine, honest, and works hard to show he cares. If you are looking for a new dentist in Howard Beach, look no further than Howard Beach Dental!
A+ for Dr. Stern and the staff of Howard Beach Dental. The same goes for every visit I’ve had with them over the last two years. I used to hate going to the dentist. I even avoided it for nearly two decades, but now it’s completely a different story. Dr. Stern is a great listener and lets me know what’s going on at all times. He’s the BEST! I feel so comfortable with him. His staff is just as amazing. Their appointment reminders via phone and email help make it easy. The hygienists also do such a wonderful job with the cleanings. I’m telling everyone I know in Howard Beach, VISIT THIS OFFICE!
For years I’ve been coming to Howard Beach Dental, even before I moved to Howard Beach. I’ve always been treated with kindness and top-notch customer service. Their professionalism extends into every aspect of their practice including how clean they keep their office. Dr. Stern is truly the best! I’ve always walked away feeling more than satisfied with all my questions answered.
My entire family uses Howard Beach Dental! We all go in at once, and the staff doesn’t mind the kids at all. Dr. Stern is outstanding!! Their technology is up to par, we are always in and out as fast as possible, and the staff is super friendly and caring. Definitely recommend for all of Howard Beach!
My friend told me to go to Dr. Stern at Howard Beach Dental. I did some research online to find the best dentist in Howard Beach, and read his reviews and looked at his before and after photos on the website. Going into my appointment, I already knew I had some cavities that were bothering me, and I was pretty nervous since I hadn’t been to a dentist in a little while. When I walked in, though, the office was so nice and the staff was so awesome that it helped calm my nerves. Dr. Stern and his hygienist looked over my x-rays with me and said that I would need fillings like I thought I would. On the day I got the fillings done, Dr. Stern made sure he went through the process of how the fillings would be done with me in detail so I wasn’t nervous. I didn’t feel any pain and I was comfortable the whole time. I also got to see pictures of my teeth before and after, which I liked. The fillings are so realistic and done so well that I honestly can’t even tell what’s tooth and what’s filling. I’ll be back for my 6-month check-up for sure, and I’d recommend you come to Dr. Stern too.
My first experience at Howard Beach Dental was just here recently. The first thing I did was get my x-rays and cleaning done, and the whole staff was super friendly and made sure I was comfortable. My cleaning was very thorough and well done. My dentist was Dr. Harold Stern, who I really liked. He didn’t try to make me do anything that didn’t need to be done, and I felt like I could trust him. He also explained how he decides which treatments he recommends, which I really appreciated. I’m absolutely going to be recommending Howard Beach Dental to my friends and family. They are the best dental practice I have been to in Howard Beach, and their office is very modern and up to date.
Dr. Harold Stern is a true professional and he runs a top-notch dental office right here in Howard Beach! His associates are also a pleasure to work with. A good friend recommended this dentist to me and I have been recommending Howard Beach Dental to others as well. I wish I?d found them years ago. They are the most friendly and professional dental practice I have ever encountered. I never felt confident with the dentists that I had but after coming here I feel like all my dental needs are met in one place. The staff is friendly and accommodating to all my concerns which puts me at ease.
These dentists are so good that even when I moved away from Howard Beach six years ago, I still return to them. Really this is how good they are, so you know I’m serious. Dr. Stern is truly the best dentist I have ever encountered. They are experienced professionals with years in the business here at Howard Beach Dental. I am convinced that probably before I was even born there were doing research and staying ahead of the curve with the latest equipment. The best part is, they love what they do and it really shows with how kind and friendly they are with people. These dentists really gave me a great smile and that is what I would want if I was a superhero.
Dr. Stern is the best dentist in the Howard Beach area. He is very nice and professional. He would never recommend a procedure if you didn’t need it, he has your health in mind. He has a “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” type of attitude, which is something I think a lot of dentists are lacking. I’ve recommended him to all my friends and family who live nearby.
I have a very intense fear of drills and the pain I associate with getting cavities filled, so I stopped eating sweets so I wouldn’t get any cavities. I didn’t have a cavity for 30 years. I’m so thankful I went to Dr. Stern to get my cavity filled. He is very nice and made me feel extremely comfortable. I didn’t feel a thing when he was working on my tooth, and he explained everything he was doing as he did it, which was very helpful and comforting for me. I learned a lot. After he was done Dr. Stern asked if I had felt anything and because I was so excited that it was over and painless. Dr. Stern’s staff was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. They helped me with scheduling the follow-up appointments. They also didn’t try to get me to pay for things I didn’t need, they were all just honest and provided quality service. I’ve already recommended this place to all my friends and family that live in Howard Beach, NY.
After signing up for the Doctors Network dental insurance plan, I selected this place for my dental needs. I wanted a cleaning as my first appointment so I decided to check it out. They made me feel right at home, my comfort was definitely their top priority. The hygienist even offered to change the room temperature for me and offered a blanket. The x-ray technician took my thyroid into consideration and made sure it was covered up so there wouldn’t be any problems. Everybody was very kind and easy to talk to. I love this place, and as long as I live in Howard Beach, can’t imagine going anywhere else.

General Dentistry for the Whole Family in Howard Beach, NY
General dental care is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For example, preventive exams and cleanings are necessary to avoid dental issues such as tooth decay and periodontitis. At our Howard Beach, NY dental office, Dr. Stern and our team offer a wide range of family dental services to help you enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The Value of General Dentistry
In both your oral and overall health, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the main focus of family dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing in the first place. Besides brushing and flossing your teeth every day, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the development of bacteria-rich plaque. Other treatments, such as root canals, fillings, crown and bridges, wisdom teeth extractions, etc., can also help you address existing issues before they grow worse.
Maintaining Good Oral Health in the Long Run
During your visit to your dentist’s office, your dentist will carefully perform a comprehensive dental exam for signs of trouble. Then he or she will recommend an appropriate course of treatment to stop the problem from growing worse. However, ensuring a lifetime of healthy smiles will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
