Fantastic service in a gorgeous new office. Staff is so courteous and professional. They even helped calm down my baby as she got antsy at the end of my cleaning.
Walking into Dr. Brayman’s office feels like entering a calming medispa as opposed to a cold uninviting dentist’s office.
I started going to Dr. Brayman several years ago, and I always feel confident that she uses the best practices and equipment in caring for my teeth.
Dr. Brayman is a true professional and a very nice human being. She is skilled in the art of dentistry. I recommend Dr. Brayman with no hesitation.

The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. From walking in and being greeted by the office manager which was very helpful with getting my insurance to actually pay for my visit . Unlike Other offices I visited im the past always gave me issue with my insurance .
Dr Brayman personally did my cleaning . She wanted to get to know her patient personally . She was very gentle and sweet. Her bedside manner was great and she clearly knows her teeth
She broke down my entire treatment by showing me clear photographs of my teeth. This was the first time a dentist showed me what's going on in my mouth. It was a shock since no other dentist ever mentioned I need cavities filled. Luckily my insurance was able to cover most of my services and I was able to complete everything in one visit .
Overall is was a wonderful experience. I would recommend this office to anyone who wants a normal high quality Experience without any of this BS. read less - 12/27/2021Roberta Marino

When I needed restorative work, she placed an implant crown and regular crown for me.
When I needed cosmetic work, she completed an Invisalign treatment and whitening.
She was my Go to Dentist.
So when she moved her practice to Long Island, I was really upset.
But who new that shortly I will move to Long-island myself!
I Googled her and found her brand new practice in Woodbury Commons center.
Her new office is even better then old 5 th Avenue one.
The team is professional, thoughtful and accommodating as always. And Dr Brayman is the best, as she always been.

They’ve helped me with routine cleanings and check ups, removal of a wisdom tooth, made me a non-invasive night-guard for clenching that I wear daily, provided whitening solutions, and helped correct a chipped tooth. Dr. Brayman, Tanya at the front desk, and all of their staff are awesome (and gentle as I have very sensitive teeth).
They have a beautiful new practice in Woodbury on Long Island, that just opened in Nov 2021. They continue to offer great dental and customer services and always have the most advanced high-tech dental technology and tools. Highly recommend! read less - 12/08/2021Svetlana V.

I went to the office which is conveniently located in the heart of Woodbury NY at the Woodbury Commons Mall.
Tanya, who runs the office, kindly assisted with registering my information and providing me details regarding my insurance policy. She showed a genuine kind of care which
was very informative and helpful in determining my future course of actions which was then expeditiously attended to.
They fit me into a time slot that was based on my availability as they really do work with you and never made me feel rushed.
The office is absolutely beautiful and state of the art.
I've had the privilege of being seen by Dr. Kate Brayman. She was kind, gentle and extremely personable. Great family environment.

This is the first time in 4 consecutive weeks that I have had a break to write this.
I am an entertainer/singer so my smile is everything. 3 years ago while traveling between gigs on a kick scooter, I hit a crack in the ground and chipped my front tooth. My income and gigs plummeted over time and in life I found that people respected me less. It was an elephant in the room that weighed me down for years. I suffered from social anxiety because I knew that I was constantly being judged by my appearance and not by my heart or gifts.
Last month I decided it was my time to be happy again so I looked online and came across Dr. Kate’s website. Between the stunning before & after photos and the many rave reviews I reached out. I was delighted to receive a prompt response and follow up call from Tanya. She was so courteous, kind, personable and professional. She took time to answer all of my questions in detail and with transparency. I immediately booked a consultation with the intention of coming back the following week to have the procedure done.
The office has such a warm and peaceful vibe I have never felt elsewhere. The Dental Assistant who took my X-rays was gentle, communicative and friendly which really made the experience so positive.
It was an honor to meet Dr. Kate. She is highly skilled efficient, and compassionate. Rather than having me go back into the world with a chipped tooth, she was willing to do the dental bonding right there and then. I was told the procedure might take 30 min but I think Dr Kate finished it 15 min (or it felt that way). When I looked at myself in the mirror I was shocked! The bonding looked so natural it freaked me out. I also realized in that moment that 3 years of emotional anguish were behind me and a new life awaited outside of that beautiful East Village office.
I would like to sincerely thank from the bottom of my heart Dr. Kate Brayman DDS for giving me my smile, my career and my life back. Thank you to Tanya, the Dental Assistant and staff. I look forward to the next visit! read less - 5/10/2021Kristie Howard

I came to Dr. Kate's office and immediately loved the atmosphere. I was warmly greeted by Tayna, their amazing office manager. After checking in, I was immediately escorted by their lovely dental hygienist Melissa.
I came for a cleaning and dental exam and wanted to discuss the possibility of a gum lift and cosmetic bonding. After meeting Dr. Kate, she was happy to do both treatments during this same appointment. I didn't have a lot of time but she worked swiftly and I cannot express how HAPPY I was when I saw the final result. The team gloated how I looked like a completely different person and it really made me feel great!
I was always told by numerous dentists I could not achieve the smile I wanted without expensive veneers. However, Dr. Kate saw the potential of my gorgeous smile hidden behind a little excess gum and reassured me she can help me achieve what I wanted and it would come out beautiful.
She is BRILLIANT! My smile is glowing and I am so happy to have found this dentist office! I don't need veneers because my teeth are so pretty! My confidence has shot up since I left and the best part is the procedure was not as expensive as I anticipated but even if it was, with Dr. Kate's professionalism and expertise compounded with the extremely friendly staff, it would have been well worth it! read less - 4/10/2021Sydney Sacco

Every time I am there I feel it is a unique, personal experience and my needs are always addressed. Tanya is exceptional and more than accommodating when I have had to a) cancel last minute b)arrived late or c) needed to get new molds made for my Invisalign (I swear I'm going to be better about it guys ).
Additionally, I had not one, not two, but three different dental insurance providers (thanks mom&dad) that Tanya was adeptly able to apply to my treatment despite the extra work and inconvenience it caused on her behalf.

The reviews looked great so I made an appt. Upon arrival at this beautiful,modern,cozy and super clean office I was greeted with a coffee and bottle of water. I absolutely loved how cozy and comfortable the staff made me feel. I filled out some paperwork, provided my Insurance info and within minutes was led to a room where I was speaking with the doctor and explaining my dilemma. The doctor examined my teeth, took X-rays and pictures and we spoke for a bit. The Dr. explained to me that my gums were inflated and have risen above the normal level. She asked me how often I floss and I said almost never so she then asked me to show her on a demo tooth model how I brush my teeth and handed me the toothbrush.This whole time (my whole life) I thought I was brushing my teeth the right way but it seems I have not. She showed me the right way to Brush my teeth and how important it was to stay close to the gums and move the brush in a circular motion and explained that unless this happens, the brushing of the teeth is pointless and doesn't actually get the dirt out or the food that is stuck there which then causes decay, hence causing my gums to hurt and rise too high. We talked about the importance of flossing and my overbite and how I would be a great candidate for Invisalign. I found the Dr. to be very thorough and helpful. The hygienist gave me a really good teeth cleaning and we ordered a night guard because apparently I grind my teeth too much and have taken almost all the enamel off my teeth. Yikes. my wedding is in 4 months so we came up with a plan on how to make my teeth look beautiful and lets not forget the best part, I left the office with a goodie bag full of sensodyne toothpaste and new toothbrushes. So yes I wanted to leave a review because my experience was indeed wonderful and I will def be coming back. read less - 11/29/2017Alexis Espinoza-Arrubla

Fourth visit within a few years and am very pleased with the professionalism, the warmth, friendliness and politeness of all the staff, and the care and quality of dental service and procedures. Initially started coming after receiving a Group On for a general checkup/visit/cleaning and came back again for second visit and third visit. Just had my first filling ever done, and I was grateful for the level of care and comfort of the procedure especially because I was nervous for my first time! Am going to return for a second filling and also planning to have my wisdom teeth removed here as well. Impressed with the office appearance and modern dental technology used as well. Most of all though am very pleased how they manage to make going to the dentist, which is not the most pleasant thing for most people, to be such a good experience - the friendly attitude of all the staff and the quality care of service/dental treatment surely can't be beat!

Both the hygienist and dentist got to me very quickly, I wasn't sitting in the waiting room forever like I've come to expect for medical appointments.
The hygienist did a very good job with the cleaning and despite the fact I hadn't been to the dentist in YEARS she didn't berate me (as I probably deserve), but instead followed the cleaning with some practical suggestions about how to maintain my oral health. A few minutes after she finished the doctor came in to do his examination, very succinctly as well, and I was on my way smiling and satisfied.

My ex fiance ended up getting four teeth pulled and getting dentures. For fear with that I avoided seeing a dentist.
Anyway due to avoiding and teeth situation getting worse I worked up the nerve to make an appointment. Trust me when I say this, I suffer from anxiety and fear of pain and discomfort. After reading the reviews on Yelp I choose to see Kate.
First off walking into the office was very intimate and small. While waiting your offered bottled water, you can make coffee with creamer and sugar provided and Hulu Plus TV. I didn't wait long and was taken in right after submitting paperwork, for a discussion on history, x-rays and teeth cleaning. After discussion and x-rays were done I got some frightening news that made me cry and fill up with anxiety but I would rather hear the truth then a lie. I mustered up the courage to deal with what is to come.
Kate's employees are very nice, welcoming and easy to talk to. Kate herself wanted to make sure I didn't have to make so many appointments for the future visit to come so consolidating visits was offered. She is honest and wanted to take one thing at a time before any future discussion on work being done. Didn't want to overwhelm her with nervous questions because the focus right now was the two appointments that were to come.
I have to wait on insurance to got through before my second visit. I did make it aware of the severe anxiety that I have upon visiting dentist and Kate was more then willing to help in that matter as well with options.
I'm hoping my next two visits go well and painless. Hope this was helpful. read less - 9/23/2015Ingamar R.

I was very nervous to see a dentist because I suddenly got a very bad toothache and knew that I would probably need to get a root canal done. I wanted to be very selective about what Dentist I would go to, because I was very scared about having it done. It would be the first root canal for me and heard a lot of bad things about the procedure.
I am extremely glad that I chose Dr. Brayman, because her and her staff members made the procedure go by quickly and pleasantly as possible (no pain!). I was greeted very warmly and made feel at ease. I didn't have to wait. The office had a lot of modern technology and a sleek and comfortable dental chair.
First, the doctor took x-rays of my teeth and showed me the problem area enlarged on a computer screen. She had confirmed that I will need to get a root canal done, but told me not to worry and that I would not feel a thing. She was right there was nothing to worry about because I didn't feel a thing and the procedure was done in only a few minutes! I was prescribed pain medication but I only took it ones because I didn't have much pain at all afterwards. I was so glad it was all over with so quickly and easily.
I later came back two more times, first to get a crown fitted and the second to get it put on. Those visits were a breeze and went by very quickly and smoothly. The crown feels and looks great and very natural! read less - 3/05/2015Kate G.

It's a small, unpretentious office in West Village. Appointments are met on time with very little wait. Procedures are done quickly and efficiently. Dr. Brayman made a mistake with one of my crowns and she was happy to re-do it free of charge.
The style at which Dr. Brayman delivers her explanations is very terse, which explains my 4-star review. She's not your second-grade teacher and won't hold your hands, carefully explaining why you need such and such. Which is fine, for me... I'm a low-maintenance patient.

And it's been. . . . a while. . . . since I've had a cleaning. They didn't make me feel bad about that, just told me to remember every six months! And, I was not surprised, when she found a cavity 🙁 I could kind of feel it with my tooth but they also show you the X-Rays, so if you are one of those skeptics, you get the confirmation. I scheduled the fillings for 5 days later! And HOLY HELL was it fast. 3 fillings (2 had to be repaired) and I was in and out under 30 minutes. And two days later, my boyfriend and best friend scheduled their appointments. See ya in 6 months Dr. Kate! You are the BEST. read less - 6/26/2014Jon K.

I just turned 30 and decided it was time to join the adult world and get my teeth examined and cleaned on a regular basis.
At my initial cleaning and exam, the x-rays picked up on a rather large cavity and it was explained to me that I needed a root canal 🙁
Which even I could tell I needed just from the x-rays. (the tooth in the past had been painful but it went away a few months back...)
I scheduled the root canal a few days later, after consulting with an out of state dentist friend who confirmed it was definitely necessary.
The entire procedure took less than 25 minutes, it was done correctly and perfectly on the first time, I felt no pain or discomfort.
The staff there is great, they are upfront an honest about costs, and I never got a lecture (which i totally deserved for not going to dentist in 7 years).
Dr. Kate Brayman has got a patient for life! I will be coming every six months from now on.
Totally changed my opinion on dentists and getting dental work done. read less - 6/16/2014K B.

Fortunately, it was a smooth ride from the moment I came in. It's a small office situated in Greenwich Village, but it's cute and cozy.
I came here to get my x-ray and teeth cleaning, as per the Living Social voucher. I was taken care of by the hygienist, who was really sweet and nice (and totally the opposite of the horribly mean dentist I had so long ago). She took my x-rays and made sure I was comfortable, and took her time with the cleaning. Overall, at the end of the procedure, my teeth looked so much cleaner and better.
Since I haven't been to a dentist in so long and because all that time meant a lot of plaque build up, she recommended that I get a deep cleaning. However, she was understanding of the fact that I don't have dental insurance so she didn't pressure me into making an appointment for it right away, which I really appreciated. I actually was really happy at the fact that she advised me on the best way to take care of my teeth instead.
This is probably the best voucher I've redeemed via Living Social, so if you're having doubts, don't! Truly changed my perspective on the idea that all dentists are evil! read less - 5/07/2014Jeannie G.

I am very happy with Dr. Brayman and her staff, she has a great hygienist, dental assistant and medical biller/receptionist-the office runs like clockwork with very little or no wait time. You will also find that there are email and text updates about your appointments, I value this part of the service and will never miss an appointment or wait around. More importantly I am a total coward and have felt very at ease and as of yet absolutely NO PAIN. I HATE PAIN. I have received preventative tips and special prescription options to keep my teeth heathy that other dentists didn't think to offer, so I like how up to date and modern the practice is. Finally, it's a congenial office and Dr Kate is personable if that's important to you. Good Luck. read less - 2/24/2014joel s.

My visit was wonderful! I picked you from those who are available on Google Offers, when I purchased the cleaning, and you had good Yelp reviews. However, I still didn't know what to expect!
Jenny, I remember speaking with you a few times on the phone because I needed to change my appointment, and you were kind, courteous, and patient - which made me feel so much at ease and calm! Thank you!!!
When I got to the office, the subway took a few minutes longer, and you were fine with it - no problem.
The waiting room was delightful - complete with a flat screen tv, magazines, coffee, water - anything you could want! (Even tissue!)
I only waited a few minutes after filling out my paperwork to get seen, which was wonderful!
Vera was fabulous!!! She took my x-rays and was the first hygienist, I've seen in my entire life, who actually spoke with me directly about possible programs and discussed how I could help fix them!
She also spoke to me throughout my cleaning, also a first, and pointed out specific spots she was cleaning and pointed out specific teeth that I needed to pay close attention to! So helpful!!!
When Dr. Kate Brayman came in, she had such a lovely smile and also was interested in how best to address my teeth. She was professional and knowledgeable!
I might have to get a few cavities looked at, and I'll be sure to go back here!
Thank you all for a wonderful time! I don't think I've ever spoken those words about a dentist appointment - but this appointment brought out many firsts - all positive!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you all!!! read less - 11/22/2013Lee P.

Having not been near a dentist in over 30 years I was a little nervous, however the staff here made my visit very pleasant. I received a thorough exam, x rays and cleaning. I was also relieved to know that I had no cavities and considering the length of time between visits my teeth were in pretty good shape. I will certainly be recommending this practice to my friends and returning again to have an old filling replaced.
Unlike what I have heard from friends who have visited other dentists I felt no pressure or alarmist tactics from Dr Brayman and her knowledgeable hygienist Vera.
Highly recommended! read less - 8/19/2013Barry A.

My teeth were sparkling. Did I mention I forgot my Tiffany bag, with my girlfriends present at the office, and they called me and reminded me. I couldn't believe it.

Just read some other reviews, people with cavities complain, of course. People like me with none, love the service. It's up to you to decide. read less - 7/17/2013Alaina B.

I had to get a replacement tooth so I wanted only the best cosmetic fix done to my teeth. Upon my first visit with Dr. Brayman, I was welcomed with a very hospitable staff. Dr. Brayman, who was very sweet and friendly, told me I had to get a root canal done because my root had been sticking out. I was nervous about this because I'd never had one done before and I've only heard horrible stories from so many people in my lifetime. She took x-rays, and as I waited for them to show up on the television screen that is conveniently placed directly in front of the chair, I noticed her own artwork on the walls of the office. I felt confident I was in good hands. She proceeded to numb my mouth with painless anesthesia, which was a complete surprise to me because I'd never had painless anesthesia given to me before, let alone heard of it, ever! The whole process probably took less than five minutes and it was all over - and it WAS painless! She showed me before and after x-rays on the screen, and took molds of the broken tooth so she can have a replacement tooth made perfectly for it. After returning a week later with my temporary tooth she had put in, she provided me with my new permanent tooth that matched flawlessly with my mouth and all my other teeth, and is completely unnoticeable. I love it! Dr. Brayman is a very thorough dentist and actually takes the time to listen to her patients, something that is hard to come across nowadays. Definitely a one-of-a-kind dental experience. Thank you, Dr. Brayman! read less - 6/13/2013Sabina H.

I bought a $39 Groupon for x-ray/cleaning/exam and was given an option of where to go. I almost went with Svetlana Yampolsky, DDS who is also in the area but just before submitting the information something told me to yelp her. Boy was that the best decision ever!!!!! My jaw dropped when I read all the horrible, and I mean HORRIBLE reviews on this lady and her place. Particularly on the way she treated people with discount coupons!
So I looked up all the other practices in the area and Kate Brayman, DDS had the best reviews in all of them in my area. I also loved their mission statement so I changed and decided to go here. I called on Monday for an appointment and to my surprise they told me that I could come in on Wed. Check 1!! = (no long appointment time).
So I went in 10 mins late but called before and they let me know that it was OK. I got there filled out my form and then they saw me instantly! Check 2!! = (no long wait time). I let them know I did not have Insurance and all of that and they did not show me an attitude or anything. Excellent personal service and they did not make me feel like I bought a Groupon at all!!! Check 3!!!! = (Excellent bedside manner).
There was a point in time when the dental hygienist was finished cleaning and explaining everything to me (she was excellent by the way....wish I remembered her name. a blond lady with an accent) where I had to wait on Kate Brayman, DDS. I was just sitting there when the manager came in and explained that she would be a while and asked if I will like some magazines to look at and I thought that was excellent customer care. I didn't even have to wait that long since it ended up being just about a 10min wait. Didn't even get to get past the first half of GQ. Check 4!!!! = Excellent customer care.
Then when they were done I went and spoke to the manager and he gave me all the prices of the things I need. They did the same like other reviewers where they itemize things and offer 20% off if you pay cash and all that. Then when I was leaving they gave me a little baggie with the usual dental maintenance stuff. (floss, toothbrush, mouthwash, toothpaste) and they printed out a copy of my results and gave it to me. Check 5!!! = Excellent wrap-up.
You see I buy a lot of these Groupons and several places cut corners and try to force gratuity on you or trick you into paying something or treat you really badly like you are a poor nobody when you come with a discount coupon, and have you waiting forever past your appointment time while they take other "paying" customers before you, or tell you if you come 10 mins late that you forfeit your coupon and then turn you away. They did not do this at all. And they are true at least in my case to their mission statement.
I will go back to them for sure for my 3 fillings and write another review then for sure. read less - 3/28/2013Jessica S.

I was terrified of going since I hadnt been to a dentist in 22 years, but although I was met with a little shock from the staff and doctor, I wasnt made to feel as if I was from another planet. The coupon was for xrays, cleaning and consultation and I was very happy with everything. I wasnt pressured to return there for future work, but I was given a price list, along with a 20% discount if I DID happen to return there, which I absolutely plan to! Dr. Brayman's bedside manner was the best I've had from most other doctors. I will definite be back for my deep cleaning. read less - 1/29/2013Nora W.

We spent 20 minutes talking about our dogs after my check up the first time I was there, I didn't feel rushed at all! I had mentioned that my last dentist wanted to pull out all my wisdom teeth, and she said that 1) he was crazy to think that and 2) she wouldn't need to do that and these would be easy enough to fill.
Today I got my cavities filled, she used this neat tool that numbs the teeth without needles, and without making the whole half of the face numb. That's right, I left without drooling! All in all, as far as something as unpleasant as getting deep cavities in my molars filled, she made it as nice as it could possibly be. Found my new dentist! read less - 1/28/2013Beata H.

No insurance and truly fearful of dentists, I embarked on a very long journey. I went to an over priced dentist in midtown who solved nothing. Six month later in even more pain - the kind that makes you crazy and depressed and leaves you feeling hopeless - I went to the NYU dental school. If you are afraid of dental work and in this much pain this might not be the best option, I left in tears and vowing to pull my own tooth out before I went back there. Luckily I had signed up through Groupon to get a cleaning and exam with Dr. Brayman. What serendipity. She was sincere, to the point, sympathetic, and understanding of my fears and whoas. She put me at ease, put a smile on my face and put my faith back in trust worthy dentistry. I can't thank her enough for her dentist wizardry and quick action on the two teeth that I had troubles with. She gets in there and solves the problem without any fuss extremely efficiently and is very aware of wether not you are in pain when doing so. I have had two root canal procedures with her so far. Dr Brayman's office is located in a very peaceful and soothing neighborhood. The days of my appointments I leave my house knowing that my experience will be a good one. Dr Brayman and her staff are beyond lovely. I really can't stress enough how afraid of dentists I was and am no longer. Thank you Dr Brayman! read less - 10/09/2012Cindy W.

I was a bit skeptical after reading some negative reviews but the experience was great. Dr. Brayman and the hygienist were really nice and friendly. Cleaning was thorough and x-ray was very high-tech with the image displayed right up on the LCD screen in the procedure room. They did not push me to sign up for any unnecessary dental procedures. And after I told them I don't have dental insurance this year, they did not do any hard sell or cold calling. The office is small but they were really good at scheduling. I normally have to wait at least 10-15 mins at my former dentist office but I didn't have to wait at all here. While I was waiting for my boyfriend to get done, I was able to drink water and snack on some cookies and watch hulu. I did not think going to the dentist could be this easy. I will definitely consider going back there when I get my insurance next year. read less - 9/19/2012Beverly H.

Dr. Brayman and her team are dedicated and obviously love their work and the people that seek out their knowledge.
Dr. Kate Brayman and her staff always have the patient's interest in mind, which is a special quality in the city of ours...NYC. They are excellent at what they do and the passion is quite evident. The receptionist, assistant and hygienist were genuinely friendly and upbeat, so I had a pretty fine relaxing morning. The hygienist was very knowledgeable, and readily discussed some options work I can have done to make my teeth brushing routine less of a hassle. I've been impressed with her knowledge of dentistry, her staying on the cutting edge of technology within the profession, and her attention to detail when it comes to giving the patients high-quality service.
Dr. Kate Brayman turned out to be GREAT! I'll be coming back on a regular basis to get work done, as they not only want to fix what is wrong but make you look the absolute best that you can.
