Dr. Shahin is an excellent dentist. He is very detail-oriented and listens to my concerns. He performs the best dental cleaning that I've ever had with any dentist. His dental assistant is very professional and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Shahin.

I had a problem with my tooth, and I need a bone graft and implants for like 7 teeth, by I was looking for cheap implants because I had no insurance. They were able to offer me affordable implants by signing me up for a Doctors Network dental plan. The cost of implants was a fraction of what I would have paid without a dental plan. Thank you!

I'm 40 yrs old, I had been struggling with finding a good & affordable dentist. I have Medicaid with health first, and last year my insurance covered some of my dental work, but the last dental clinic I went to didn't send the xrays on time, so I had to start all over again. Also, with Medicaid, they just gave me referrals & it would have taken months till they do all my dental work... So I signed up for Doctors Network dental insurance plan and kept my insurance & paid the remaining amount myself. I suffered from anxiety disorder with agoraphobia & didn't take care of my teeth well, plus medications that harmed my teeth & in the past, I have had bad experiences with dentists in Brooklyn that led me to avoid them for a long time, but I felt so bad about my teeth that I don't even want to go out & my Anxiety already made me isolate for too long... So, I decided to sign up with Dr. Shahin's dental plan. This helped me so much to keep treating myself & accomplish things that I haven't & even more now due to my teeth.

Dr. Shahin and his staff have been so wonderful the entire time I have been a patient. They are informative and supportive. They answer questions in a timely manner and offer fair prices. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 minutes past my appointment time to be seen. I once had an issue with my retainer, and Dr. Shahin fixed it for free. 1st Impression Dental is the best place in Brooklyn to receive dental care.

I’ve been a long-time patient of Dr. Shahin and would recommend him to those looking for a new dentist. He is very personable and highly skilled at his job. Most importantly, he genuinely cares for his patients. The whole staff does. I highly recommend 1st Impression Dental to anyone who needs a wonderful dentist.

After chipping my tooth on Christmas day, my family recommended 1st Impression Dental, so I checked them out and made an appointment immediately. The staff was great. Dr. Shahin fixed my tooth. His assistant helped me through my fears and was very patient with me. I’ll be going to Dr. Shahin from now on.

1st Impression Dental knows how to care for their patients. The friendly staff and super clean location plus the thorough approach and knowledgeable dentists are precisely why I would recommend this place. They set fair prices compared to other dental practices in Brooklyn. I had multiple dental implants done here, and fortunately, they offered me a payment plan, so I was able to afford it. They do a great job showing you the condition your teeth and your implants are in and advise you how to proceed. I’d highly recommend this place.

Dr. Shahin and staff are incredible. They exude professionalism. I’ve never been so relaxed at a dental appointment. As long as I’m in Brooklyn, I’ll be going to Dr. Shahin.

Dr. Shahin and his staff were so kind and informative. After seeing another dentist in Brooklyn who performed quite a bit of unnecessary work, I went to 1st Impression Dental. Dr. Shahin didn’t try to add on unnecessary tasks to raise the price. I am happy to say I have found my new dentist.

I just moved to Brooklyn and did not have a dentist. I drove by 1st Impressions and asked for an appointment. The receptionist readily accommodated me. Dr. Shahin was nice and very attentive. He clearly told me what the next steps were for the work that I needed done and answered all my questions. It was a great visit. Thanks, Dr. Shahin.

I had the best experience at 1st Impression Dental. The staff is very helpful and informative. They did a thorough job, and I was pain free. Dr. Shahin was willing to answer any questions I had and explained all the steps of the process. He showed me my X-rays and possible concerning areas. His advice was invaluable. I give him my highest recommendation. If you are looking for a caring, competent dentist, look no further than Dr. Shahin.

My husband and I have been going to 1st Impression Dental for nearly a decade and we’ve been so happy with the quality of the service. They accommodate our difficult schedules and offer the highest quality of care. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Shahin to anyone looking for a dentist in the Brooklyn area.

I love 1st Impression Dental. I never have any pain and the procedures are quick. I want to thank Dr. Shahin for making going to the dentist fun. I’m more than happy to go back and would highly recommend them. If you need a dentist, go to Dr. Shahin.

I have been going to Dr. Shahin since I was a teenager. He takes great care of my teeth at my bi-annual cleanings. I highly recommend Dr. Shahin. The office is neat and clean. The staff is cheerful and always smiling. I will definitely recommend them to everyone I know.

My friend highly recommended Dr. Shahin to the point where I decided to switch offices, and I’m so glad I did. This was my first experience at 1st Impression Dental, and it was excellent. The staff was polite and accommodating. They were gentle during the cleaning. I couldn’t be any happier.

Like most people, I don’t really like going to the dentist. I normally do a ton of research before choosing a new dentist. Last week, I had terrible pain and was prepared for the worst since I had to make an impulsive decision. However, Dr. Pooria Shahin did a fantastic job. I have decided to make him my regular dentist. I’ve never been more impressed, and I would highly recommend him to others like me who normally hate going to the dentist.

I visited 1st Impression Dental in Brooklyn, and I feel compelled to leave a review because it was such a pleasant place. I’ve never been so impressed with a dental facility. Dr. Pooria Shahin and his assistant were kind enough to stay after hours so I could get a filling. They were so comfortable with each other and did a superb job. I can’t even tell I had a filling. If you’re looking for the best dentist in Brooklyn, look no further than Dr. Pooria Shahin.

Dr. Pooria Shahin and the staff of 1st Impression Dental are so caring and compassionate. I have extreme claustrophobia, and they took the time to make me feel comfortable. They played my favorite music (Jack Johnson) and turned on a fan. Dr. Pooria Shahin even stood up the entire time, which allow me to not have to be laid back in the chair. The hygienists were so caring and helpful. I actually can’t wait for my next appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Pooria Shahin.

Dr. Pooria Shahin is the best dentist my family has ever been to. I’ve been meaning to write a review for a long time and am finally doing it. The staff is extremely friendly and kind. They are very professional in every aspect of the process. Dr. Pooria Shahin has taken care of our family for 3 years and I couldn’t imagine going to anyone else in the Brooklyn area.

1st Impression Dental is a wonderful place. The entire staff is great to be around. They book appointments quickly. I had a filling last week, and I was in and out for less than an hour. I didn’t feel any pain, not even when I got the numbing shot. 1st Impression Dental in Brooklyn offers an enjoyable experience.

If I could give Dr. Pooria Shahin anything higher than a 5-star rating, I would. I had a root canal performed by another dentist in Brooklyn and developed a severe, painful infection, which lasted for weeks. Then I went to Dr. Pooria Shahin for a second opinion. I’m so glad I did. The office squeezed me in for a same-day appointment. The staff was very welcoming. I’m now recovering thanks to Dr. Pooria Shahin’s excellent service.

I’ve been to 1st Impression Dental twice, and the staff is very thorough and kind. I’ve seen Dr. Pooria Shahin during both visits. He is a true professional, as he discusses your needs in great detail and makes great recommendations. I will continue to go to Dr. Pooria Shahin. I highly recommend him.

1st Impression Dental is peaceful from the moment you walk in. The hygienists are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Dr. Pooria Shahin stopped in see me, and he was so pleasant. Honestly, I’m not really a big fan of the dentist, but this place is great!

Dr. Pooria Shahin and his staff are incredibly kind and professional, as they willingly help in any way they can. They want what is best for each of their patients, and as much as I don’t particularly like going to the dentist, I like going to 1st Impression Dental. Thank you so much for accommodating my schedule and getting me in. So far I have had 2 fillings, a deep cleaning, and Invisalign; all have been great. I’m so glad I found 1st Impression Dental.

1st Impression Dental is the best dental office in Brooklyn. You can’t go wrong with Dr. Pooria Shahin and his staff. The office staff is incredibly friendly. While I have had bad experiences with other dentists in the past, Dr. Pooria Shahin fully puts me at ease. I highly recommend him!

I’m so impressed with Dr. Pooria Shahin and his entire staff. The whole office is very inviting, and everyone goes out of their way to be kind and helpful. Dr. Pooria Shahin genuinely cares about his patients and is great to work with. Furthermore, his assistants really know how to put patients at ease. They are easy to talk to about the financial aspect of the appointment. They went over everything prior to putting a crown on and then put it on in the same appointment. The office had a calming atmosphere even during long procedures. I can’t recommend Dr. Pooria Shahin enough!

I needed two extractions done ASAP. I had put it off seeing a dentist for so long. I finally saw a dentist in Brooklyn. They took X-rays and told me to go see an oral surgeon right away. They prescribed antibiotics for my mouth. I needed my teeth removed, so I called Dr. Shahin's office, and not only they were able to schedule an appointment for me right away and take the teeth out, but they also offered me a dental plan to save on the cost of tooth extractions since I did not have dental insurance.

Dr. Shahin saved my life. I had the worst toothache you can think of. Dr. Shahin not only helped me with my pain, he also helped me with my anxiety. He was very fast, gentle, knowledgeable, professional. He is the best dentist in Brooklyn, maybe in the state of New York. Thank you Dr. Shahin and First Impression Dental. You are the best.

The best dentist in Brooklyn. Dr. Shahin and his staff are great to me and all of my family. They always see us very quickly, We love Dr. Shahin and his office staff.

I have been a patient in this office for a few months. I decided to choose this office because I read a lot of positive and glowing online reviews, and I am glad that I did. The doctor is funny and yet very professional. The staff is also very accommodating. A couple of times I showed up too early, and they moved things around to see me right away instead of making me wait. Especially if you are thinking about getting Invisalign, I would recommend Dr. Shahin. I started coming to this office because I had a lot of crowding in my front teeth. The entire process has been painless and smooth, and after a few months of treatment, my teeth are now straight and perfect. So glad I did this.

I really appreciate Dr. Shahin. I recently had to have a crown, and it went very smoothly and painlessly. Dr. Shahin and his office members are very helpful. My entire family only sees him, and we are very happy. They even help you with all dental insurance-related issues. I tell everyone I know about him.

I had a couple of permanent crowns put in by my previous dentist, but they kept falling out, so I decided to try a new dentist. Eve since Dr. Shahin put my crowns back on they have been solid, and I have had no problems with them. They also notified me that my insurance was maxed out when I tried to schedule my cleaning, and let me know that if I waited another month to get the cleaning in the new year, it will be covered by my insurance, and they saved me a lot of money. I really appreciate it guys.

Let me start by saying that I am a big scaredy cat when it comes to dental visits. I used to get the laughing gas, even for just teeth cleanings. Dr. Shahin is very gentle and calming, and I have not used the gas since I started coming here. The doctor does the teeth cleaning himself, and the girls in the office are very sweet as well.

First Impression Dental is Excellent. Dr. Shahin and his team are awesome. My children and I have been coming here for over a decade, and our cleanings and checkups always go smoothly and painlessly. Everything is stress-free. This is the best dentist office in town.

Dr. Shahin is a very good dentist. He is very caring and knowledgeable, and his assistants are very nice and friendly. I never wait long for my appointment, and his office always has the latest technology. I had all on 4 dental implants done here, and now I feel like I have a full set of teeth. They used 3D cameras to make them, which I thought was very cool. I would highly recommend.

General Dental Care for Everyone in Brooklyn, NY
General dental care is as important to your smile as brushing and flossing your teeth. For instance, checkups and cleanings are necessary to prevent dental health complications such as tooth decay and gingivitis. At our Brooklyn, NY dental office, Dr. Shahin and our team offer a variety of general dentistry treatments to help your family enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The Importance of General and Preventative Dentistry
In all aspects of your health, prevention is vital. Therefore, the primary focus of family dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing in the first place. Besides practicing good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other treatments, such as teeth-whitening, clear braces, and treatment for teeth-grinding, can also help you manage 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 growing worse. However, caring for your smile will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
Speak with Your Brooklyn General Dentist Today!
With a strong focus on prevention, preventative dentistry is essential to maintaining your good oral health. To schedule a consultation, call Dr. Shahin's dental office in Brooklyn, NY today at (718) 230-0908.
