After moving to the Uniondale, New York area, I needed a new dentist. I noticed that Dr. Kaufman had outstanding reviews, so I came in. The reviews were absolutely correct! I had an amazing experience, and I was very much at ease the entire time, no pain at all. Dr. Kaufman does a great job informing his patients and working with their insurance plans. I honestly don't believe the reviews that say that they had to wait an hour. I had two crowns in the past 6 months and a cleaning. I never waited more than 10 minutes past my appointment time. The staff works very efficiently to make sure that they are punctual. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if these other reviewers just showed up late for their appointment and expected to see the second they walked through the door. My philosophy is “show up early get in early.” I showed up at 10:15 for a 10:30 appointment to have a crown put on. I was seen at 10:25 and out by 10:50. So, I just can't believe that others had an extremely long wait. I normally don't even bother to review my experiences, but I felt like I had to tell everyone how amazing Dr. Richard Kaufman is. I will not go anywhere else for my dental needs.

Dr. Richard Kaufman and his staff are incredibly expeditious. I had a dental emergency, and abscess, and was promptly scheduled for an appointment even though they were already incredibly booked. The office is very new and spacious. They promptly took my x-rays and then displayed them on a large monitor in the patient room. Dr. Kaufman discussed both my situation and my treatment options very thoroughly with me. A few weeks later, I went back for an extraction and did the prep for an implant. The cost was very affordable. I cannot recommend the office highly enough.

How can anyone honestly give a dental office five stars? Well, I can! It would be impossible not to give them five stars for how good of a job they did. The entire experience was pleasant and comfortable. Dr. Kaufman and his staff are the best in Uniondale, New York. The receptionist you a great job making the scheduling process very easy. The assistants are always professional and Incredibly kind. Dr. Kaufman runs a very efficient office, but his work is meticulous, and he interacts very positively with his patients. I appreciate the warmth that I feel every time I have an appointment. It's nice to feel such respect. I love the staff here so much that I have already referred multiple family members and friends to Dr. Kaufman's practice and will continue to do so. The office is clean, and they have a nice waiting room. I highly recommend this office!

I've been going to the same dentist for as long as I can remember, but it was time for a change because my previous dentist started to only care about money and not the patient. After searching online, I found Dr. Richard Kaufman. I loved the reviews that he received, so I made my appointment and was beyond impressed with how well the receptionist handled my new patient info over the phone. At my appointment, I felt very comfortable talking about my dental history as well as my concerns. The hygienist took x-rays and then Dr. Kaufman came in to meet with me and discuss what he saw. I was relieved when he told me I had nothing to worry about. I just needed a routine cleaning. Dr. Kaufman and his staff are incredibly inviting. I highly recommend this to anyone who is in the Uniondale, New York area. You will love Dr. Kaufman!

Dr. Kaufman makes it fun to go to the dentist. He's incredibly sweet and makes it a point to get to know each of his patients. Before going to Dr. Kaufman's clinic, I went to a small dental office nearby for my regular check-ups. My uncle started to go to Dr. Kaufman and he recommended that I give it a shot as well. Now my entire family goes to Dr. Kaufman! The staff is very kind. They accommodate all your needs and go above and beyond to help you. Plus, I was able to finally get my teeth whitened, and I absolutely love the results. The experience was entirely pain-free and absolutely worthwhile. I had a little bit of anxiety going into it, but I had no reason to be nervous. I highly recommend Dr. Kaufman to anyone in the Uniondale, New York area.

I was having some tooth pain, so I needed to go see Dr. Kaufman. My appointment was at 3 p.m., and I was seen in less than 15 minutes. The assistant was incredibly personable and very helpful in showing me the correct way to floss and how to prevent my gums from bleeding. Dr. Kaufman and the ortho specialist were both great. They answered all my questions and took the time to find out exactly what the source of my pain was. I am so thrilled to have found this office.

I desperately needed a root canal. My primary insurance was going to charge me $3,000. I decided to shop around at other places and found Dr. Kaufman's location through the help of online reviews. I am so thrilled that I came here. The receptionist is incredibly personable. Dr. Kaufman was extremely meticulous but patient when working on my teeth. He accommodated all of my needs. The staff made sure that I wasn't in any discomfort or pain. The specialist who did my root canal was wonderful. I am very happy with the services I received at Dr. Kaufman’s Clinic. Even though it was a pretty busy day, they were able to provide high-quality care and punctual appointments.

Like most people, I don't really like going to the dentist. My fear of the dentist has kept me out of the dental chair for a number of years. However, I grew fed up with the appearance and health of my teeth. So, I decided to turn to Dr. Kaufman after a friend referred me. That was three years ago. I now have a completely different perspective on dentistry. I love my smile and no longer need to be pushed to get the procedures done that I require. Dr. Kaufman is very honest and efficient. Even after I switch to a cheaper dental plan, he was still willing to work with me to make sure that my needs were met. They offer pretty flexible appointment times, and you barely have to wait. However, even if there is a small wait, it's worth it. It's nice to know that I have found a doctor who truly cares about my oral health and making sure that the costs are reasonable. I cannot imagine going anywhere else!

I am incredibly impressed with the care that I have received from Dr. Kaufman. I am normally very terrified of the dentist due to some awful experiences in the past. I have experienced pain from other dentists, and the service was never very good. As soon as I walked through the door, I knew this place was going to be different. The receptionist had a beaming smile on her face. The x-ray process was not difficult at all; I didn't have any discomfort. The hygienist was very gentle during my teeth cleaning. Again, I had no pain whatsoever, not even with the novocaine. Dr. Kaufman was also very personable. He wasn't like other dentists who just come in, tinker with a few things in your mouth, and leave. I highly recommend this Uniondale, NY practice. It’s awesome!

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Dr. Richard Kaufman! My brother is handicapped and has diabetes, so he requires extra care. It is very important that he has a gentle and compassionate dentist who is willing to work with him. Dr. Kaufman is that dentist for us. He is very willing to listen to all of our concerns and does a great job on my brother's dental care. Dr. Kaufman did a great job monitoring my brother's healing process. So far he is healing very well, and there have not been any additional complication. Personally, I've been to seven different dentists in the past 20 years. One of my previous dentists suggested that I have all my teeth pulled and just get dentures. Dr. Kaufman said this was absolutely ridiculous. Dr. Kaufman specializes in implants, so he helps me devise a treatment plan that was a whole lot less drastic. I am highly satisfied with his work and Incredibly grateful that I have found such a wonderful dentist and friend. If you need dental treatment of any kind and live in the Uniondale, New York area, please do your teeth a favor and give Dr. Kaufman a call.

Dr. Kaufman is very honest and efficient. I hadn't been to the dentist for quite some time, but I knew that choosing a dentist was similar to choosing someone who works on your car. You need someone that you can trust. You want someone who won't pressure you into getting extra work done and someone who will do a great job at an affordable rate. Dr. Kaufman was all of those things and more. I appreciated that he was very direct about what work needed to be done and gave me options as far as payment for the service. I needed six fillings, and the first three only took one hour. Overall, I cannot recommend this office highly enough. The staff is very compassionate, and the office is very inviting.

I saw a Dr. Kaufman today, the Saturday before New Year's Eve, without an appointment because I lost a crown last night. Granted, the crown was over 35 years old and had been done by another dentist, but I still needed it fixed. I expected to have a long wait, but the X-ray process was very efficient. Less than 10 minutes later, I was prepped to see Dr. Kaufman, who numbed me for the procedure. An hour later, I had a new temporary in place and a permanent crown had been ordered. I love the high quality technology they have at this practice. Instead of making an impression of my teeth in clay-filled tray of yore, they used 3D digital imaging to map out my teeth and photograph them for color matching. Same result without all the radiation! Dr. Kaufman was so expeditious and accommodating. Thank you so much!

Dr. Richard Kaufman is one of the nicest dentists there is. He has a great practice in Uniondale, New York. I appreciate that he explains exactly what he is doing and why he is doing it. He patiently answers all your questions and concerns. I find Dr. Kaufman to be very gentle and approachable; he puts my nerves at ease. Parking is very convenient.

Dr. Kaufman has a wonderful team at his Uniondale practice! I love the layout of the office. The staff is very considerate of their patients’ needs; they offer convenient parking and flexible hours so that you can schedule your dental appointments around your other needs. Dr. Kaufman is very gentle and highly skilled. He has a great chair-side manner. Thanks to genetics, I have inherited a severe class III bite, and honestly speaking, Dr. Kaufman is the best dentist I've been to regarding the situation. Going to Dr. Kaufman has inspired me to take better care of my dental health. I will be a patient of his for as long as he is practicing. best of all, his prices are very affordable, and he works with you if there are financial issues so that you can get the treatment that you need. in addition to my special bite, I have a bunch of other dental needs. Dr. Kaufman has gone the extra mile to help me improve my smile. You can't beat the service you received from Dr. Kaufman. He is one of the best in New York!

It’s really stressful to find a new dentist after moving to a new place, so I’m thrilled to have found Dr. Richard Kaufman. His practice is the best I’ve been to. The staff is personable, and the assistants truly care about patient comfort. They even made adjustments when I had trouble with my x-rays. I love that Dr. Kaufman takes the time to talk to his patients and get to know them personally. He is excellent at his craft, far better than the previous dentists I’ve seen. The staff doesn’t judge you either. All in all, Dr. Kaufman is exceptional. I’ve never had a negative experience. The reviews don’t lie. Plus, they offer convenient hours. You can’t ask for more!

I called Dr. Kaufman's office after having not been to a dentist in years. This was the best decision I could have possibly made. The entire staff at his practice is incredible! The assistants are very personable and knowledgeable. The receptionist manages appointments and does a great job accommodating my work schedule. I love that Dr. Kaufman truly cares about his patients. He is a very skilled yet honest dentist. I had a deep cleaning and an appointment to replace the existing metal fillings with composite fillings. The procedure was painless. I love that Dr. Kaufman explained everything that he was going to do and really reassured me that everything would turn out great. I was very comfortable during the entire process. If you are anxious about visiting the dentist, then this is the place for you. Dr. Kaufman knows how to make you feel at ease the entire time. My smile looks incredible. I love my teeth now. Thank you, Dr. Kaufman! You are the best dentist in Uniondale!

I used to wince at the thought of going to the dentist, but since coming to Dr. Kaufman's practice, I find going to the dentist to be a very pleasurable experience. The location is very convenient. The staff is very comforting and personable. Dr. Kaufman patiently answers questions and discusses any concerns. I appreciate the fact that he makes sure each of his patients is informed about his/her procedures. I even convinced my boyfriend to schedule an appointment. He has been to the same dentist for over a decade but decided to switch, and now he wishes he had made the change a long time ago. If you live or work in the Uniondale, New York area, I highly suggest that you give Dr. Kaufman to call.

Dr. Kaufman deserves to thumbs up. When I arrived for my appointment, I was greeted by the very friendly front desk staff. The check-in process was very convenient because I had already completed the paperwork online. I was able to see Dr. Kaufman without having to wait. Overall, I am incredibly happy with the results I have received from my ZOOM whitening treatment. My teeth look 3 shades whiter now. I had a phenomenal experience thanks to the wonderful staff at Dr. Kaufman’s clinic. Everyone here is so kind, professional, and helpful. I will definitely be referring multiple friends and family members. Thank you Dr. Kaufman! I will be coming back for future treatments. This place definitely deserves five stars!

A longtime patient of Dr. Kaufman, I can attest to the high quality care he offers. He has a very pleasant disposition, and the quality of his dental work goes unmatched in the Uniondale area. I've had crowns done by another dentist, and Dr. Kaufman's work is far superior. His crowns are shaped like the real tooth. They don't even look artificial. Dr. Kaufman uses the latest technology, which makes a noticeable difference. I can't thank him enough for the excellent work he and his staff have done. I've already recommended him to multiple friends.

I recently moved to Uniondale and needed a new dentist. Thanks to the positive online reviews, I chose Dr. Richard Kauffman. My first appointment was for a cleaning and to discuss some tooth sensitivity I’d been having. From the moment I walked in the door, each staff member was kind and inviting. I’m afraid of needles, but Dr. Kauffman made sure I was comfortable. He continued to check on me and waited until I was ready before proceeding. He did an excellent job. Thanks for the great customer service, Dr. Kauffman.

I went in for an operation on my tooth abscess. I basically had an infection at the root of the tooth between the tooth and my gums. It was awful. Thankfully, Dr. Kauffman’s office accepts my insurance and was able to operate quickly even though I didn’t have an existing appointment. The receptionists were great. They made the whole process even easier. While I normally see an out of state dentist, I was in Uniondale for some housing opportunities. Without Dr. Kauffman, I would have had terrible tooth pain on my flight home.

I”ve been a patient of Dr. Kaufman for 10 years now, and he’s always kind and knows what he’s doing. His staff is caring and easy to talk to. My wife goes to him too, and is always happy with how her teeth look. He really knows what he’s doing from a simple cleaning to harder stuff like crowns.

I recently moved to Uniondale, Nassau County, and was worried about finding a new dentist near me, but I’m so lucky I found Dr. Kaufman’s office. He won’t just operate on your mouth just to make money, but tries to do as little work as possible in order to save you money. He answers all my questions and listens to my concerns. The hygienist is wonderful. She is caring, friendly, and easy to talk to. During my cleaning, which was excellent, she made sure I was never in pain. She gave me some great tips for brushing, rinsing, and flossing, and gave my teeth a great cleaning. She told me I was doing a great job with the care of my teeth, which made this visit a very positive experience. I’m use to dentists yelling at me and telling me I need to do a better job. This office is truly beautiful with its high ceilings and great looking rooms. The administrative staff is very helpful, and Dr. Kaufman is detail-oriented. This has to be one of the best dentist offices around. I have to give a special shout out to the front desk very helpful and knowledgeable. They helped me understand all the financial stuff. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this place.

Family Dental Care for Everyone in Uniondale, NY
General dental care is as important to your smile as good hygiene. For instance, preventive exams and cleanings are necessary to avoid dental issues such as tooth cavities and periodontitis. At our Uniondale, NY dental office, Dr. Kaufman and our team offer a variety of general dentistry treatments to help your family enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The Value of General and Preventative Dentistry
When it comes to your oral health, prevention is vital. Therefore, the main focus of family dental care is preventing issues from developing. 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 tooth fillings, dental crowns, dental implants and implant supported prosthesis, and more, can also help you address existing issues before they worsen.
Excellent Dental Health in the Long Run
During your dental appointment, your dentist will thoroughly inspect your teeth and oral tissues for signs of trouble. Then he or she will consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the issue from growing worse. However, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on maintaining good hygiene and regular general visits to your dentist’s office.

By helping you avoid serious dental issues, general dentistry is essential to enjoying a lifetime of healthy smiles. To make an appointment, call Dr. Kaufman's dental office in Uniondale, NY today at (516) 481-1117.
