Dr. Dolman is the perfect example of a doctor that you can trust with your health. He performed wisdom tooth surgery on me in December, and followed up with me post op to answer any of my questions and concerns that I had. It took me longer than usual to recover (around 1.5 months), but that's just my body. He did an incredible job and I highly recommend him. Also he's very genuine and extremely nice, qualities that I wish every doctor had. Definitely one of the best doctors in NYC by a landslide, and there aren't many out there like him (trust me, I know from experience, I've been to several over the last year for other health concerns). Go to him if you need a surgeon for your jaw or wisdom teeth!! Thank you Dr. Dolman for setting a great example.Also all of his staff are amazing as well. Shoutout to Abigail for answering all my questions and helping me with insurance/paperwork, as well as all the nurses in the office. You guys are exceptional.

Dr. Dolman and his team went above and beyond to make me feel so comfortable and supported throughout my entire wisdom teeth removal process. I never felt rushed during the initial appointment - Dr. Dolman took his time to explain his diagnosis, next steps, what I should expect in the coming weeks. After the extraction, he followed up almost daily for the first week and checked in a couple times afterwards to make sure I had no pain. He always responded so quickly if I had any question regardless of what time of day or week it was. Could not recommend him enough!

Overall, I had a great experience at Dolman oral surgery. Dr. Dolman was honest and informative during my consultation and provided thorough pre and post op instructions. He was very punctual and operated on my single tooth Coronectomy efficiently. I am now 6 weeks out from surgery and everything seems to be healing well. He was also very reachable during the process and would respond to any questions or concerns via text quickly. I was in a considerable amount of pain for almost 2 weeks post op and he provided recommendations to help manage that better and provided insight into whether or not I should be concerned with the progression. It was extremely helpful and also comforting to know that things were looking normal. The only recommendation I would have is that there should be a check up automatically scheduled at the time of scheduling the surgery to check in on healing. I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Dolman should I need to get any of my remaining wisdom teeth removed and would recommend him without hesitation.

Doctor Dolman not only is an extremely smart and talented surgeon but he also has shown more personal care and interest in my recovery than any other Doctor I’ve ever dealt with. He checked up with me every few days after my recovery and answered questions I had for him over text even on weekends which I don’t think is common especially for surgeons of his caliber. Also, his staff and him have great bedside mannerism and made me feel comfortable during my surgery. Highly recommend - truly my best experience with a Doctor ever.P.S. I was not asked to write this review.

During my annual dental checkup, my Long Island City dentist observed that my wisdom teeth were causing some cavity concerns and recommended that all four teeth be removed expeditiously. New to the city, I was referred to Dolman Oral Surgery, and I am so thankful for the suggestion! From my first appointment, I felt immediately at ease with Dr. Dolman. He was efficient, thorough, and kind. He carefully drafted a care plan that took my prior dental and medical histories into consideration and patiently answered each of my questions. I felt immensely comfortable with his entire office and was able to schedule my extraction for approximately one week after my initial consultation.On the day of my extraction, from prep to discharge, the entire procedure took just a bit over an hour to complete. Dr. Dolman and his assistant worked efficiently and precisely, much like they were performing a ballet. I experienced no pain, no anxiety, and incredulously said “that was it?” when told that we were all set and done! Following my procedure and short drive home, I received hourly follow-up texts from Dr. Dolman himself to ensure that my recovery was progressing as anticipated. I have never experienced such thoughtful care and knowing that my surgeon was only a text away made my recovery a supremely pleasant experience.While no one is ever wildly psyched to have their wisdom teeth removed, Dolman Oral Surgery went far above and beyond to ensure that my experience was first rate. Should you find yourself in need of wisdom tooth extraction or any other oral surgery, I cannot imagine that you will find a more wonderful office in the five boroughs!

I’m so thankful to have found Dr. Dolman. He and his staff are exceptional. I was incredibly nervous going into my procedure and he made me feel so much better about things. He went above and beyond from consultation, procedure to post procedure care. He’s responsive and cares about his patients. Highly recommend. Thanks Dr. Dolman!

I went to Dr. Dolman for a wisdom tooth removal, and it was one of the best medical experiences I've ever had. From the initial consultation to post-op, Dr. Dolman and his staff ensures that their patients are safe, comfortable, and knowledgeable about the procedure. The office goes above and beyond when it comes to COVID-19 precautions, as they have air purifiers in every room.Additionally, there is constant communication with Dr. Dolman and his staff as they respond to questions quickly and thoughtfully before, during, and after the procedure. He provides detailed written pre and post-op instructions, a care package to use during the healing process, and contacts you 24-48 hours after the procedure to see how you are feeling/doing.He truly cares for his patients, which is exemplified through his work. I highly recommend Dr. Dolman to anyone who is looking for an oral surgeon in the NYC area.

Dr.Dolman is the best oral surgeon in Ny if you ask me I had a cracked wisdom tooth on my bottom left side I explained to him how my other wisdom teeth pulling in the past went and he explained to me the procedure necessary. During the surgery I felt no pain and to be honest I didn’t feel any pain after either. This is definitely the place to go to ! Makes me wish the office did regular dentistry too. If I can give 20 stars I would.I guess the people who left all these reviews were right because I don’t have not one complaint from Dr.Dolman down to his staff. Everyone was very polite and respectful ! They didn’t take my insurance and I payed out of pocket and it was worth every penny! From the surgery to the easy recovery.

I had 3 wisdom teeth (well, 2.5 because of one being too close to a nerve) extracted by Dr Dolman a month ago. Before and after the procedure, he and his staff were so kind and attentive. My recovery went smoother than I could’ve ever imagined — the bleeding stopped ~6 hours after the procedure, virtually no pain at the extraction sites, barely any face swelling, and I was able to return to mostly normal eating after a week. All of this, thanks to Dr Dolman’s expertise and following his aftercare instructions to a T. Would 10/10 recommend this office for oral surgery.

Dr. Dolman is the man himself. Normally I hate needles and procedures and he made it so seamless and easy. Went above and beyond during recovery time, providing detailed instructions and regular checkups via text. Highly recommended!

I am more than highly recommending Dr. Dolman for wisdom teeth extraction. He was extremely kind, caring and helpful throughout the whole process. A few days before the surgery, he sent me a personalized list of what I would have to do before I came into the office and what I would have to do after I left. From the second I stepped foot into the office, he made me feel calm and comfortable until the very end. I was given the IV sedation so I fell asleep and after I woke up, he gave me an anti anasthetic to take away the effect of the anesthesia. I left the office feeling totally normal after having gotten 4 wisdom teeth extracted. Before I left the office, he gave my mom and I clear instructions on what to do when I got home. I continued to ice my cheeks all day and take ibuprofen. I barely felt any pain in my mouth. I woke up the next morning with barely any swelling or pain. I felt totally okay to resume my regular day to day activities the next day. This was the smoothest wisdom tooth removal process and I am thankful that I did it with Dr. Dolman! Could not imagine having done it with anyone else!

Dr. Dolman was amazing! He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to sit with you and explain your options and procedure with incredible detail. I felt absolutely no pain for the surgery and very little discomfort with the healing process. He checked on me multiple times once i got home to make sure that all was well. He really cares for his patients and it shows. His staff was very friendly and professional. If ever i need another oral surgery i will absolutely return, for the quality of his work and professionalism is second to none.

He truly cares for his patients. Three days after having my teeth extracted, he texts me for progress and updates that are normally expected. He does take good care of you. :)) Can't wait to see my results with Invisalign.

Dr. Dolman is unlike any other doctor I’ve encountered (especially in NYC!) He takes his time with his patients, fully explaining the procedure/what to expect (he even draws out helpful diagrams), and most of all, you never feel he’s in a rush, and he genuinely seems to care. He gives out his cell phone and is extremely responsive through texts (even on evenings and weekends). The extractions themselves were really as pleasant as they could’ve been. I felt completely relaxed, and felt no pain during and after the procedure. The office is super clean and pretty. Could not recommend Dr. Dolman enough!

In the time it took for other offices to respond to my initial inquiry, Abigail called me and set up an appointment for the next day, which is a rare experience in NYC.I had an impacted wisdom tooth that was overdue for removal and the process went as smoothly as I could have hoped. I had been traumatized by previous wisdom tooth extractions that were painful and drawn out and was nervous to undergo the procedure again. I opted for intravenous sedation and the surgery was painless and felt like it passed by in a matter of a few minutes. Dr. Dolman was available before and after the procedure to answer any questions and to ensure that all prescriptions were filled. The surgery site has since healed with no complications.I really appreciate the care and attention to detail I received from Dr. Dolman and the patient care coordinators. When I first came across their reviews I was slightly suspicious because I have never seen a 5 star doctor's office listed. As it turns out, they do exist! Dr. Dolman and his team balance effort and efficiency in their work and it definitely shows. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had a great experience having 2 lower wisdom teeth removed. Scheduling an appointment was quick (Dr Dolman actually took my call on the 2nd ring) and the initial consult was great in that Dr Dolman went over everything very clearly and made sure I understood what he was talking about. Seeing your xray on the big screen while he reviews your case is great and reassuring. The actual extraction was straightforward but the follow up was amazing. Several texts from Dr Dolman telling me what to expect and do over the following 2 weeks made me much less concerned about developing any problems.I do not normally write google reviews but out of the blue the office contacted me today to tell me my insurance overpaid them and I was owed a considerable amount of money. Honestly, I didn't feel like I overpaid at all and I would never have discovered this on my own.Highly recommend!

I’ve had my wisdom tooth extraction done by Dr Dolman lately and had two more extracted 4 years ago. I was taken very good care and had great experiences for both visits!! My teeth were impacted and I was told by other doctor it’s not gonna an easy recovery for me. But Dr Dolman eased my concerns and my recovery was speedy and almost pain free. Dr Dolman is very caring and quick to address my questions and worries.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Dolman. He was able to squeeze me in early for my wisdom tooth extraction and everything went seamlessly. He checked on me multiple times after the procedure and it was very clear that he really cares. Highly recommend!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Dolman. He was very caring, explaining all steps before the removal of my wisdom tooth and following up with me during the following weeks. The tooth extraction per se went very well with no complications and very minor pain. He was always available for any question, even off-hours! I truly think this level of care is really unique, especially in New York City and would recommend Dr Dolman to anybody in need of oral surgery!!!

I had my wisdom teeth removal with Dr. Dolman. There was no pain at all and minimum swelling post-surgery. His skill and technique is by far the best I have seen / experienced. He has also followed up many times just to make sure that I am doing okay. Highly recommended!

Dr Dolman is great!! I used to take two wisdom teeth out and it was an awful experience. But this time I was referred by a friend and went to Dr Dolman for another two wisdom teeth removal, it was the best experience i've ever had its weirdly relaxing..and it didn't hurt the second day and my teeth are recovering great. Will recommend Dr Dolman to anyone that needs oral surgery!!

This review is well over due. I went to Dr Dolman 01/29/2021 to have a coronectomy done on one of my wisdom teeth due to my roots being wrapped around the nerve of the tooth. Long story short no doubt about it Dr Dolman is the BEST. He is gentle , caring and explains EVERYTHING to your understanding. His staff is PHENOMENAL as well. I just love them all. Thank you all so much .

Dr. Dolman extracted 5 teeth including 2 that were severely impacted, and at every step, he and his staff were professional and talented.I was seen almost immediately after contacting Dr. Dolman, and the surgery was scheduled in a similarly rapid manner.I chose to stay awake for the procedure. On the day of the surgery I took an anti-anxiety pill (lorazepam - prescribed by Dr. Dolman and ready to be picked up at my local pharmacy). After arriving I was given laughing gas, and shortly after that, my gums were injected by needle with a numbing agent.Being so relaxed the needle didn't hurt or bother me. It was just a slight pinch.The surgery itself was also painless and short. My impacted wisdom teeth could not have been simple to remove, they were in the bone and also near a nerve.But I only ever felt slight pressure, never any pain.And the recovery was incredibly easy. 6 or 7 hours after the morning surgery I felt fine, not perfect, but if it had been required I could've worked that same night.The staff are also great. It feels personal. I saw no other patient during either of my visits.Highly recommended.

First off I want to start off by saying, if I could give this office any more stars I would! They totally exceeded my expectations in every way. Dr. Brecher was exceptional, both he and his assistant were very professional, knowledgeable, patient, and caring throughout my entire visit! I left feeling like I received the absolute highest quality of care. I would highly recommend them over and over again!The entire staff was kind and ready to help, the office is beautiful and clean, with up to date equipment, the atmosphere and staff combined really put me at ease for my extractions. I can’t say thank you enough ❤️

Dr. Dolman was recommended by my dentist and I can’t be more thankful. Although I am out of network, I was impressed by Dr. Dolman’s professionalism and experience. I had 4 wisdom teeth took out at once and I was able to recover very quickly within few days and before and after surgery, he had always made himself available to answer my questions quickly and patiently via text and email. The staff there is also very polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dolman and his team to my family and friends!

Cannot say enough incredible things about Dr. Dolman and the excellent staff here! I saw Dr. Dolman for a dental implant needed because of a missing second tooth. Dr. Dolman did an amazing job and cares about his patients, making sure the healing process is smooth and that you are comfortable during and after the procedure. I highly recommend!

Dr. Dolman simply saved my life. I was having a rare complication (delayed infection) after removing my wisdom tooth by my general dentist. My dentist ignored my pain and swollenness and told me to just wait it out. I decided to get a second opinion. During the consultation, Dr. Dolman was able to tell exactly what needs to be done and I trusted him 100%. The procedure was quick and the recovery was almost painless. I was worried and probably asked a million questions throughout the process and he was able to reply all of them within minutes (texts and emails). I simply cannot thank him enough. The level of dedication that he has towards his patients is unparalleled. I don't think I'll find another doctor that's like him. I'm still recovering and I'm pretty confident that I will be back to normal soon. Thank you as always Dr. Dolman.

The best of the best!! So grateful to have found Dr. Dolman. I went in for a wisdom tooth extraction and he made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. The actual procedure was so quick and smooth and surprisingly pain-free. What impressed me the most was how thoughtful and available he was post-op. He would check-in every couple of days to make sure that I was recovering nicely and if I had any questions or concerns. He has certainly set the bar high for any doctor I see from now on!!! Its been over a month since my surgery and I'm recovering nicely. I cant recommend Dr. Dolman and his team enough!!!! Thank you!!!!

My orthodontist recommended Dr. Dolman and I can’t be more grateful.Doctor Dolman is an outstanding oral surgeon. He is so personable that he really takes the time to listen/understand your concerns then he answers every single question you may have.What differs him from other doctors is that he truly cares about his patients and constantly checks in after the procedure to make sure you’re okay. I’ve never met a doctor that’s more passionate and caring like Doctor Dolman.I can’t recommend him enough! He’s really the best!!

I removed all my 4 IMPACTED wisdom teeth with Dr. Dolman and let me tell you...it was the smoothest (and only) surgery I've ever done! He has the HANDS OF AN ANGEL.I was scared at first because I heard so many horror stories about it specially if you are only using local anesthesia but my experience with Dr. Dolman was great. He explains every step of the process, he recommends what you'll NEED to do (sometimes we go and visit doctors thinking we need to get something done but maybe is not the case), the team in the office is so nice and helpful! Also the after care was an incredible experience. Dr. Dolman provides you instructions of everything you need to do explicitly! I never had an infection, I followed everything he recommended.If you are in the NYC area and thinking about removing your wisdom teeth, Dr. Dolman is your man!

Dr. Dolman is incredible and I cannot say enough good things about my experience with him and his team. The most efficient, polite, friendly staff I’ve ever encountered in any medical setting. Zero wait time, the office was spotless and welcoming and Dr. Dolman himself was so funny and personable and made me feel at ease right away. Aside from finding my problem and providing a way to fix it, I will never forget that he happened to answer the phone himself when I called the office in hopes of an appointment - heard how distressed I sounded and agreed to see me immediately. I’ve never felt so taken care of. Thank you Dr. Dolman!

This place is amazing. I saw Dr. Brecher and he was honest from the get go about what needed to be done and didn't sugar coat anything. He also followed up with me after the surgery to make sure I was feeling okay. If I had to do oral surgery again I would definitely choose him again. Their patients' well-being is a definitely a priority! Don't think about it twice if you're looking for a place for your oral surgery.

Dr Dolman was absolutely phenomenal. Everything from the second you walk in exceeds all expectations. I had two wisdom teeth pulled out and it was the most simple procedure I have ever had. Him and his staff made sure I was accommodated at all times, not to mention the office was very clean. However what I appreciated most about my visit was the time Dr Dolman took to explain the conditions of my wisdom teeth and he then let me decide, to his advice, how I wanted to go about my procedure. I recommend everyone Dr Dolman, he is the best and someone you can trust.
