From ease of making an appointment, to schedule being right on time, warmth, friendliness, competence of everyone at front desk, and gentle, caring attention to all my dental needs by Silvano and Dr. Chicvak, I can't imagine a better dental practice.


I highly recommend Dr. Chicvak for any dental/ oral procedure ranging from the most simplest to the most complex oral conditions. His office staff are very friendly and caudal. Professionalism and cleanliness is also their priority.


Amazing! This office is the best, I have been coming here since I was a child and now I bring my own family. They are all so accommodating and welcoming. They made my 4 year old feel comfortable. Office is clean. Staff are so caring!

Thank you Dr. Chicvak for taking the time to thoroughly explain what sleep apnea is and how of affects the entire body.


My visit with Dr. Chicvac was wonderful. He is a knowledgeable professional who truly cares for his patients well being. He took the time to explain each and every step of the process for the treatment I came to him for. It’s not every day that one can expect his or her Dentist to go into the level of detail about their dental issues that he did. I highly recommend him.


My first visit there and couldn't be happier! By far the best dentist experience I have ever had in my 55 years. Dr Chicvak is the dentist that all others should strive to be. He took the time to explain everything and made sure all my questions were answered. It was a pleasure talking with him and getting to know him. Would highly recommend in a heartbeat.

- Kevin

Dentistry Done Better is aptly named! I get a great cleaning, a thorough exam and everyone there is always pleasant. I highly recommend them.


Unfortunately this was an unplanned visit for a broken tooth. Dr. Chicvak and Rose Marie were able to get me in quickly and address my issue. Over the years I along with my family have been treated by everyone in this office in a professional, thorough and caring manner. They are the best. Thank you.


Switching over to Dr Chicvak has restored my faith in dentistry.


Phenomenal staff. Pleasure to work with Dr. Chicvak. Helped me enormously with switching over from the cpap to the oral appliance. Made sure that I understood everything. Made adjustments and gave advice. Just an awesome experience. If you want to go from the mask, hose, discomforts of using the cpap, then consider paying them a visit. It really works. Makes life easier. Sleep great. Feel totally rested. Took a few weeks to get use to but it definitely changed my life. Could not be happier with my results. Owe it all Dr. Chicvak and his staff!! I only wish I could have done this sooner.


I highly recommend Dr Chicvak. The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team is outstanding. I visited the office for a cleaning. Silvano is very knowledgeable with excellent chairside manners. Every visit is like visiting friends. I couldn’t be happier with the office.


My experience with Dentistry Done Better was excellent The staff was friendly & attentive, Dr Chicvak was professional & attentive as well. He explained all of the different options & treatments covered by my situation and was proactive in advising me on my next steps of my ordeal I would highly recommend this practice to anyone who asks.


I have been going to Dr Chicvak for over 6 years. I cant tell you how much I appreciate his honesty. Dentists these days make a-lot more of a fuss for the smallest issues and charge an arm and leg for a simple fix. And most patients would never know. Dr Chicvak is NOT like that at all. This is why I will give my highest recommendation for Dr Chicvak. I truly appreciate him. I wouldn't trust anyone else.

- Michael

Always the best experience! Everyone there makes going to the dentist something to look forward to! I love the way my mouth feels after a cleaning.


Dentist that will explain any thing you ask of him, person with a wealth of knowledge, personable, he listens to you, will explain options that you can take for your situation, he gave me insights as to my condition.


By far the best dentist I’ve ever been to. The staff is absolutely wonderful. I recently moved 30 miles away and refuse to find another dentist. Dr Chicvak and staff are worth the travel.


As far as I’m concerned, Dr. Chicvak is the best dentist around and his practice is superb. Always professional, warm, and you just know that you are in excellent hands. I recommend him for anyone who needs a dentist!


My tooth feels so much better. Dr. Chicvak is very nice - took me on time even though it was an emergency visit. Felt no pain at all. He's very gentle with his touch - he's a kind and understanding person. I wasn't nervous at all and I"m a very stressed and anxious person.Skilled and knowledgeable. Gives back to the dental profession
Staff is very helpful & supportive. I'm glad I'm a patient!


Always pay attention to fine details! Highly professional service This is how healthcare should be!


Dr.Chicvak and his staff are more than professional and courteous, they are like family looking out for your best care all around. The office is clean, the wait time is zero! I always feel like I am in the best hands when I go for my twice-a-year check-up.


The atmosphere in this office is always pleasant and the front desk eager to put one at ease. My visit was for a checkup and Silvano does a thorough and conscientious job of it with pleasant conversation. That is followed up by a medical check by Dr. Chicvak which some dentists don’t do. I travel a good distance for their care, so they must be doing something right.


As a patient of Dr. Chicvak’s for over 20 years, as usual, during this visit he listened to my dental complaints and changing circumstances and addressed them accordingly. Dr. Chicvak shows concern and caring for his patients and their needs in a professional and compassionate manner.


always have a great experience. Silvano is so gentle and knows what he’s doing and always makes sure I’m comfortable ! Dr. Chicvak is amazing! He’s overly thorough and truly cares about his patients. I highly recommend this office!


He went the extra mile to replace a broken crown. I really appreciate him taking care of the issue expeditiously and at no cost to me, not many dentists do such thing.


Professional staff been a patient for over 25 years wouldn’t go anywhere else


Wonderful, talented, diligent, compassionate, thorough. Thank you for that Dr. Chicvak.


John is the only dentist I would ever want to go to for the rest of my life! He is thorough, knowledgeable, and an overall great guy. I’ve seen so many dentists before him and I stopped looking after I first went to his office about 15 years ago. His staff is also amazing! Can’t wait for my next cleaning! lol

- Alexander

Had a broken tooth and called the office looking for an appointment as soon as possible. I was offered an appointment the same afternoon which I could not make time for, and accepted an appointment the following day at 9:30 AM. Dr. C. saw me as soon as I arrived and by 10 AM I was in my car on the way to work with a new feeling, no pain and a grateful heart.


I guess most people wouldn't have a fun review going to a dental
office, but there are exceptions. you all not only made us feel relaxed,
but very welcome. The thorough cleaning, the efficient receptionist,
and above all DR. CHICVAK were most professional.
Thank you

-Morris & Ruth

Dr. Chickvak is amazing!!!!! He is caring, and his professionalism is unparalleled. He was able to put my mind at ease and provide the best care for my mother, who has a history of dental aversion. Most importantly, he was able to make her smile, and after multiple office visits, and accommodating our complex schedule, Dr. Chickvak provided my mother with a new set of teeth!! This man is a SAINT, and his staff are his angels. Dr. Chickvak and Yvette have such a welcoming way about them that makes you feel like you are part of a family you didn't know you needed. I won't comment on what an awesome dentist he is, and how skilled he is, and how precise and how calming, but if all dentists were like him, no one would ever be afraid to go to the dentist. Eight billion stars for this man, because five stars are definitely nowhere near enough. Shine on!!


Dr. Chicvak has taken care of my teeth for almost 30 years, in my opinion he is a great clinician & a terrific dentist who helped rebuild my dentition from a crumbling mess years ago to a nearly full, workable set of good looking teeth! He is also a great human being and one of the most humane men I know, my hat is always off to him!


This team has only been excellent to me and my wife! What I love best about Dr Chicvak is that you can trust him, and you know that he wouldn’t create any false issues, like some other doctors have. Cleaning is always spectacular. The is an effective and efficient dentistry’s. Thank you

- Michael

Dr. Chicvak is an awesome dentist. Very thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. I travel to go there. The office is clean. Staff is accommodating and kind. Best dentist ever. Highly recommend Dentistry Done Better!


I had an emergency but dr Chivak squeezed me in. He is very professional and competent. We live in Manhattan but still travel to his office. He’s worth the long distant travel.


I am a physician and Dr. Chicvak is one of the best in the area. Your health and teeth are too important to leave to chance as there are many mediocre and some really scary practitioners out there who do not know what they are doing. I have been with Dr. Chicvak for many years because he knows his stuff! His new office is terriffic with friendly and helpful staff. I trust him and many members of my family uses him. He has helped diagnose and correct problems other less qualified dentists have made. In particular, my mother went to a myriad of "dentists" who screwed up her teeth and thankfully Dr. Chicvak came to the rescue.

-Dr. Alisa

Everyone in the office goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is amazing. Dr Chicvak is such a dedicated and caring Dentist that I would not go to anyone else! Rosemary works very hard to make sure you get the most out of your dental benefits. She has even emailed me on her day off to let me know what the insurance has paid. Silvano is the best dental hygienist that I have had in the 50 years I have Been getting my teeth cleaned.

- Sima

I was seen on an emergency basis for what I thought was major pain from TMJ. Dr. Chicvak and staff were compassionate and professional. I received one one of the most thorough exams I've ever had. Dr. Chicvak ruled out TMJ and provided a diagnosis and recommendations to deal with my pain, not dental related. I was so impressed. Dr. Chicvak belongs in the Dental Hall of Fame! I've long been recommending him to friends and colleagues.


Pleasant surprise, Last week Dr. Chicvak after doing a thorough examination with help from my feedback he had me come in the following week for the necessary root canal. During the second visit instead of going right for the procedure he wanted to reconfirm its need. Once again he asked for my responses during the second examination, but this time from my responses he decided to hold off the procedure feeling it wasn't necessary now. However he did ask I come back in a month or call if pain or swelling developed. Thus kudos to Dr. Chicvak for not rushing into the procedure.


Dr. Chicvak and his team are so professional, polite, and most importantly great at what they do. I would recommend them to anyone who is in need of a good dentist


I've been going to the same dentist in Manhattan for 25 yrs.. Unfortunately when I get an absessed tooth and called him I found he had retired. It was an emergency . Luckily my brother referred me to Dr. Chicvak who took me as an emergency on New Years Eve.. He came in special for me and was extremely pleasant. Made me feel comfortable right away and took care of my problem. #1 for me....no pain. I would recommend Dr Chicvak to anyone needing an excellent Dentist.Pleasant , gentle , takes time to answer all questions and make you feel comfortable, I never said this before in 74 yrs but he made going to a dentist a pleasant experience. Also I spoke to one of his staff Rosemary who set up the appt. and helped me thru the paperwork. Once again pleasant , accommodating and very helpful. Great office environment


Dr. Chickvac and his staff embody professionalism and expertise in providing dental care, that exceeds standards. Recently had a root canal, and it was the easiest and painless root canal I have ever had. Worth the drive 100%.


A masterful extraction was performed by Dr. John Chicvak, removing a wisdom tooth without causing me any pain.


Unlike most dentists, cleanings at Dentistry Done Better is a pleasurable experience. Silvano is exceptional, diligent and has a light touch. He is very personable and makes you feel very comfortable. Dr. Chicvak and his entire staff take the anxiousness and hesitation out of going to the dentist and are there to help you any way they can. Thank you as always.


Outstanding service, the folks here are very attentive and Dr. Chicvak takes the time to explain exactly what he is doing with clear reasons. By far the best dentist I have attended - thoroughly recommended.


I never thought a dental visit could be such a breeze, and X-rays so painless and quick. Both Dr Chicvak and the hygenist are super professional and obviously very competent and caring. Thanks.


Best dental experience ever! Used to dread going more than anything and now I look forward to my appointment. So glad I switched to Dentistry Done Better.


If pleasant and stress free can describe a dentist's office, Dr. Chicvak's practice gets top rating. From the greeting as we enter the office, to Silvano's skilled and gentle cleaning, to Dr. Chicvak's knowledge and kind approach to every situation, we can't imagine going elsewhere for our dental needs. Highest recommendation.


I am so delighted that my son recommended Dr. Chicvak. The office staff is very friendly and knowledgeable . And I am so happy with my new crown, both in the way it looks, and the way it fits..Dr. Chicvak has a very light touch , and he will not let you leave until you are absolutely comfortable with any work he has performed.. I also experienced the best cleaning I have had in any dental office. I can recommend Dr. Chicvak and the entire staff, without any reservation.


I hadn't been to the dentist in over 7 years. Laziness got the best of me. After moving, I decided to find a new dentist for a long overdue cleaning and to check on pain in one of my teeth. Dr Chicvak's office staff was great, from the office manager, to the assistant, to the hygienist, and to the dentist.


I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to meet with us and to educate us (pictures and all) about the root canal process. Further, everyone on your staff is an A+++++ and has the patience of a saint! Makes me so comfortable that our family uses your practice!


I have always had anxiety when it comes to the Dentist but I can safely say this place felt like home from the staff to the music to even the wifi password made me feel safe and comfortable. Highly recommend this Dentist unless you hate friendly kind and amazing people then I would say still come here they will change your mind and make your experience a great one anyway!


Dr. Chicvak is great! He is very gentle and caring - really goes the extra mile. I used to gag constantly with other dentists but while going through a restoration, I didn't even realize he was almost finished with the entire procedure before I felt anything! I'm never going anywhere else!


I am a long standing patient of Dr. Chicvak. Seldom have I seen an office run as efficiently as this one. Over the years, he has always had professional staff and even more importantly, an attitude that is so important in a dentist’s office. The staff is always upbeat and welcoming. There always seems to be time for pleasantries…..no rushing out to get to the next one, i.e. work is done properly and with kindness. Many offices are cool and distant, but everyone here is pleasant…front desk to the boss himself. I’ve had no complaints and Dr. Chicvak has solved problems for me that were perplexing. We are in the process of resolving one now. Thank you all.


Dental visits are typically not something to look forward to, but my dental office turns that around, making my visit pleasant, time efficient, and stress-free. Every member of this office is exceptional beyond their professional skills.


Going to the dentist after so many years can be an extremely stressful situation. Once you find the office, it's all good. Diana makes you feel at home, Silvano walks you through the process and Dr. Chicvak explains what needs to be done. Very clean and happy atmosphere, I'm actually excited to begin the process.


EVERYONE AT DR. CHICVAK'S OFFICE is knowledgeable, kind, and talented in what they do - especially Dr. Chicvak! I have never had such beautiful crowns, done so quickly and installed in my mouth so perfectly! Dr. Chicvak used many tools which I have never seen before,in a wonderfully appointed exam room, with a very comfortable lounge-style patient's chair. After having practically painless work done on my tooth in the morning, I returned later the same day for the installation of my new crown, which blends in with my native teeth so well, it looks just like the teeth I was born with! I have never had such superb crown work done by any of my former dentists, and actually look forward to another crown in the future!!!


Exceptional in every regard. Caring staff, knowledgeable and gentle hands, made me feel safe and well cared for. Would highly recommend. Best dentist experience ever.


I have been to many different dentists due to moving frequently and I can honestly say this was one of the best and most thorough visits I have had. It's always been difficult to find a great dentist but I truly believe that I have. My entire experience there could not have gone better. I will definitely be going back and I have even referred the rest of my family.


Awesome first visit, really friendly and kind front office! Dr. Chicvak and Silvano, the dental hygenist, could not have been nicer and more professional. Psyched to have a great dentist office!


Hands down the best office there is. Everyone is great and make you feel like you’re the most important person they will ever see!! Very friendly and personable. Dr Chicvak is tops in his field.


Dr Chicvak is the best !! No pain dentistry he puts you at ease no surprises and most of all NO PAIN!! He is very through and explaines any and all of your options.


Always a pleasure to visit Dr Chicvak and staff. Appreciate that when you have a dental issue they squeeze you into their busy day. Many thanks


Appointment was on time, Silvano performer a thorough cleaning, and Dr. Chicvak was able to give an explanation of a problem I was having with some of my upper right back teeth.


Dr John is friendly and calming esp with anxious patients. He and his staff are very knowledgeable and thorough.


I always receive a warm welcome and the hygienist is thorough and friendly. Dr Chicvak is always there to do an examination and answer any concerns.


Dr. Chicvak is an excellent dentist that is up to date with the latest technology. The whole practice is kind and caring.



We combine experience with the latest in dental technology to deliver the best patient experience possible.
