I was extremely nervous, and was treated with patience and support. The procedure was defintely performed with a “gentle” touch. Thank you.
  (5 out of 5)  by Carole M, White Plains. – January 19,2016
The dental hygienist who took care of me was excellent. She quieted my nerves and was very gentle. She made the whole experience totally manageable. I have long hated to go to the dentist but since joining this practice, I no longer feel that way. Thanks for great visits and bring my dental health up to date. Now it’s up to me.

I have been a patient of Dr Polevoy and I was told he was running behind. However, he never really runs behind and his staff is always around to help. And since I am a patient that requires a lot of work, he is so patient with me always.
  (5 out of 5)  by Jacob P., New Rochelle – December 21,2015
It was my sons first dentist visit! We got to our appointment 1/2 hr early before the office opened and the dentist was kind enough to see my son instead of making us wait. My son loves his dentist. I love the staff, dentist and their professionalism and personal touch they put into their patients..

Dr. Polevoy was aware of my concern not to have pain.
  (5 out of 5)  by Christopher M., Mamaroneck – September 22,2015
I just visited the orthodontist, who recommended that two baby teeth to be pulled before any orthodontic work can begin on my son. About an hour or two later, I called Dr. Polevoy?s office regarding insurance coverage for the extractions and to schedule an appointment for later in the week because I knew I was taking time off from work. That same day, I had the orthodontist visit for my son I had taken the day as well. Dr. Polevoy was able to accommodate me when I had asked to see if there were any appointments available with in the next couple hours. I am very thankful, grateful and happy he and his staff were able to do the extractions on such short notice. Many thanks again to you and your staff Dr. Polevoy. K. McLoughlin Yonkers

I was a little apprehensive about the procedure. I felt absolutely nothing. Not even the needle. I feel really good about changing dentists. Everyone is so nice and professional. I wouldn’t advise changing nothing except the magazines. You need better ones.
