Dr. Alvarez was extremely professional and took the time to understand my specific needs. I did not feel rushed and he was able to stick to the the appointment I had set. I look forward to seeing him in the future!

by By Rasmus P. On 29 January 2018

I got exactly what I asked for. . . Offices is very clean.

by By Sara Jane B. On 5 December 2017

Dr. Alvarez is a real gem. Caring, professional and detail oriented. Highly recommended!

by By Thayne K. On 27 November 2017

Always a great experience with Dr Alvarez. Left in no pain.

by Anthony LaMont On 22 November 2017

Very very professional...he makes you look and feel so confident as he performs necessary needs! Me being a host/entertainer I must say I want to sit in his chair forever and listen to Dr. Edward A. Alvarez voice as he explains the process of every procedure!

by Yelena K. On 18 November 2017

The best Botox and filler I have ever had! I'm a skincare professional and have worked with different doctors in NYC over the years and no one compares to the work Dr. Alvarez has done. And the fact that he is also so nice and makes you feel very comfortable is a huge plus! Highly recommended!

by Josie Jackson On 15 November 2017

Dr. Alvarez is such an amazing doctor. If going to the dentist has been an issue for you in the past, he will change that. Thank you Doc!

by By Mychal W. On 13 November 2017

I grew up with a serious Dental Phobia that gave me very bad anxiety when it came time to go to the Dentist. After my time With Dr. Alvarez that anxiety has ceased. Thank you Sir

by Alisa K. On 22 October 2017

This was the BEST dentist experience I have ever had. Dr. Alvarez did a thorough exam and offered various options for treatment. He also recommended laser teeth whitening and I couldn't be happier with the result!!! In just 2 visits, my smile looks straight out of a magazine (see photo below)!!! And most importantly, the treatment was professional and painless. The office atmosphere is very peaceful and music in the background was a nice touch. P.S. I have had a very hard time finding a good dentist I could trust as I have had really bad experiences in the past and I could confidently say that I will be returning to Dr. Alvarez office for all of my dental needs.

by Sara G. On 19 October 2017

I was referred by a friend to see Dr. Alvarez for some "touch ups"!!! I went in on "beauty day" and can not say enough about this office. From the front desk staff to the assistants to the doctor himself all amazing. Everyone went above and beyond to make me comfortable and my visit pain free. My lips look amazing! I feel refreshed and new! Thanks to Dr. Alvarez and his staff

by By Julia V. On 19 September 2017

Dr Alvarez is a brilliant dentist, and a kind and gentle man. He keeps up on the most advanced technology, which means that he's able to keep procedures to a minimal amount of time and pain. He may be the best dentist in New York.

by By Andrea K. On 7 September 2017

Dr Alverez is absolutely amazing. I've been a patient for several years and he always does great work, is accommodating and super considerate of dental work not being my favorite thing. I've referred many friends to him and they all love him too. A+++++

by Carlo Rivera On 10 August 2017

Great service, very professional. Makes it pleasant to go to the dentist!

by By Michael P. On 26 July 2017

Dr. Alvarez and his staff are the best! I have been using him as my dentist for over 15 years. I highly recommend him.

by By Brenda G. On 13 July 2017

Always the best!! and great staff! Thx!!

by Steve H. On 6 July 2017

If you need an dental snoring device this is the doctor to see. The self molding ones that you can purchase on line do not work for long. The material is too soft and they won't continue to hold your teeth in place. I was using custom snoring devices for over 15 years. When the appliance I had wore out I called the specialist who I'd been using. He is top in the filed with office locations in Manhattan and Long Island. I was told that I'd need to pay a "New Patient intake fee" of $650. Over the years I'd already been in for two consultations and purchased two devices. That's when I start looking for another dentist who specializes in this.I'm so glad that I found Edward Alvarez. There was no new patient fee and the device is working perfectly. It's an improvement in fact over the device I'd previously been using. I couldn't have had a more positive experience. His facility is impeccably clean and comfortable. He and his staff are very friendly and professional. He is a healer who genuinely cares about his patients. Thank you again Dr. A. I'm sleeping well and so is my wife.

by By William T. On 6 July 2017

I have been a patient for many years. Dr. Alvarez and his staff are consulate professionals. I am always completely satisfied with my care, their concern for my wellbeing, and their friendly and courteous manner.

by By Erica W. On 22 June 2017

I love Dr. Alvarez!! He is truly the best!! I've always had a fear of the dentist. He took all of that fear away. Bedside manner is the greatest too. Very warm, always making sure I'm ok and comfortable.

by Matthew G. On 20 June 2017

I travel between NYC and Scottsdale regularly, and it comforts me knowing that when I'm on the East Coast my dental needs are well taken care of.  Dr. Alvarez is a pro. The whole office runs smoothly, his skill and knowledge are top notch, & best of all is that his passion for performing good dentistry and caring for his patients are OBVIOUS.   I have referred others his way, and definitely recommend him highly to those seeking a quality dentist to make part of their lives.   A+++!!

by By Carol S On 14 June 2017

Superior techniques along with superior care!!!!!! My mother loves to accompany me on all my dental visits. She loves Dr. Alvarez and his amazing staff. They always make us feel like we are visiting family. Alvarez for President!!!!! And Karen for White House Chief!!!!!

Dr. Alvarez is such a wonderful doctor, he takes his time, is patient, and is a true artist when it comes to the Botox I have used him for. He is passionate about his job and that's what I appreciate most.

by MJ Pedone On 19 April 2017

Dr. Alvarez is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced doctor. He uses advanced technology which allows him to see everything that is happening inside your mouth. I have never had such an informative exam and I'm excited to get my teeth back into great shape again.

by Madeleine A. On 6 April 2017

Dr. Alvarez and his staff are incredible! I went in for, first, a consultation for which there was no sales talk or trying to get me to undergo any unnecessary procedures like what happens at many other dentist offices. Dr Alvarez was professional and nice and helped to come up with a good plan for the work I wanted done and at the end of the visit, quoted me for the procedures, signed the price quote and let me think about it for a couple days. It didn't take me long to decide to make the appointments because I was so impressed with the professionalism I experienced during the consultation. I then went in for the teeth bleaching which I was nervous about because of a painful experience last time I had my teeth whitened; however, the equipment used in this office was much quicker and 100 times less painful! My next appointment was for bonding on two teeth which really made a big difference in my smile and I am so happy with the work! For both appointments, Dr Alvarez and his staff made me feel very comfortable during the typically uncomfortable procedures and were very attentive to detail so I knew I was getting very precise and high quality work done on my teeth! I would trust Dr Alvarez with any dental procedure and will definitely return for all of my future dental work!

by Alina A. On 1 April 2017

I visited Dr. Alvarez for the first time to get my cleaning done, and to answer a few of my questions about a root canal I did few years ago by another doctor, along with why I experience pain from time to time on some of my teeth. X-rays taken showed decay on few of my teeth, which I had done only a little while ago. It was very upsetting to find out how my previous dentist placed a filling over the old cavity, that he decided not to remove fully. Now that explained why I was feeling the pain. I also needed to change my crown on my root canal, which Dr Alvarez explained had an opening which allowed more decay into it. It also became clear to me why my gum would bleed often. I am very afraid the needles, but Dr. Alvarez made me feel so comfortable, and let the topical sit for awhile. It was painless. I was so surprised by my whole visit, how professional and intelligent the doctor is with sharing his knowledge, and due to this I was able to avoid many future problems with my teeth, not to mention the doctor was able to get my all work done in one day. It's just unbelievable. Staff are amazing as well, would always check on me, and make sure I experienced no pain during the procedure. Thank you so much again Dr. Alvarez and staff.  If any of you looking for a great dentist, and wish not to be taken advantage of as I have been before, you have found yourself a right office.

by By Iris M. On 23 March 2017

I am so afraid of going to a dentist but Dr. Alvarez changed that fear for me! He has the magic touch and a very pleasant bed side manner! I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez as he is a perfectionist and a professional! I have been going to him for the last 5 years.. I have the best smile ever!

by By Susan L. On 1 March 2017

I've been a patient so long it is like family when I walk in. They only schedule one patient at a time so there's never a wait and I always have their full attention. Dr. Alvarez gives the best cleanings, I actually don't mind going to the dentist. I used to be a chicken and need gas or a topical for cleanings, now I don't need anything. I have total confidence in him.

by By Thomas H. On 27 February 2017

Edward is the best dentist I've ever been treated by. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and answered every question I have about the process. You can tell he has a passion for his work and has your best interests in mind. He has also surrounded himself with a staff that is professional, attentive and kind. Every part of the process is pleasant and comfortable, even when they're drilling at your teeth. I can't recommend enough.

by Christopher N. On 20 February 2017

I am scared to go to the dentist normally and as you can see I don't right a lot of yelp reviews but for doctor Alvarez I feel compelled to.  My smile is SOO much better after the amazing job you did.  Your bedside manner was really amazing and walking me through the whole process slowly was refreshing.  Now my wife will be going to him as well as my best friend and his wife.  There is no better dentist in ny.  Thank you dr. Eddie Alvarez for the smile Thank you

by By Daniel A. On 16 February 2017

A great dentist and a good man. I've been visiting for over a decade and never had a problem.

by By Carol S On 15 February 2017

Amazing Doctor and staff. He takes his time to make sure the job is done right!!!! It was late and didn't rush my appt at all. The staff didn't make me feel as if I was holding them up they made me feel welcomed. I will continue to drive from Nassau county into the city to see Dr Alvarez and staff

by By Daniel H. On 13 February 2017

Amazingly detail oriented and patient. Fairly priced.

by Stephanie S. On 18 January 2017

Dr Alvarez is by far the best dentist I have ever had. Not only is he a master of his practice but he is always very kind, gentle and compassionate. My dread and fear of visiting the dentist has been replaced with trust and confidence. I cannot recommend him enough. His staff is also amazing, a reflection of him... they are welcoming, kind and also compassionate. I also tried Botox with him for the first time. I have only done it a couple of times previously but it was the least painful procedure I have had. Because he is so gentle handed, it was essentially painless. Thank you Dr Alvarez.

by By Michael P. On 10 January 2017

Dr. Alvarez is a rare and remarkable dentist. I have been seeing him for nearly 20 years, and he is consistently prompt, professional and personable. He manages to have you always feel that his attention is directed only to you. He and his staff make sure the dental treatment is as comfortable as possible. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

by Janet T. On 22 December 2016

I've being going to Dr Alvarez for more than 8 years. He's friendly, professional, explains procedures, and keeps up with the most current technology and equipment. His office is clean and comfortable and his staff are the best!

by Susan Z. On 22 December 2016

Dr Alvarez stayed late (the night before his birthday) to finish a lot of work for me because my schedule has been tight due to work. He and his staff are thoughtful, kind, explain everything that is going to happen and provide a calm and fun environment in their office. Plus, they play great music ; )

by Lynda H. On 22 December 2016

He's the best dentist ever! I feel so lucky that I found him — over five years ago. Dr. Alvarez is incredibly smart, kind, courteous, calm under pressure, considerate, and so much more. And his dentistry is excellent PLUS. His staff couldn't be nicer and is 100% professional. Personal care at its finest. I feel completely at home when I'm there.

by Kim V. On 22 December 2016

I always look forward to my visits with Dr. Alvarez and never have to wait to start my appointment. Dr. Alvarez is always very clear and informative answering all of my questions. He looks out for your best interest and not having you get any dental work that is not necessary.

by Lynda H. On 22 December 2016

He's the best! There's no dentist like him. I'd trust him with my life.

by Daniel A. On 22 December 2016

All good as always. Dr. Alvarez is a conscientious professional who knows what he's doing. I've been seeing him for close to a decade and have no complaints.

by Rita R. On 22 December 2016

Dr. Alvarez was cordial and respectful. He took the time to explain what the issues were along with a couple of options for the solution. I appreciated being in control of my health!

by Lynda H. On 22 December 2016

He's terrific: smart, kind, gentle, does excellent work, is highly professional, and he also has an excellent staff. Beyond that, he's honest. I've been to dentists who press patients to do as much work as possible because they see dollar signs. Beyond all that, his ultra clean office is beautifully designed for form and function. I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez! If you use my review, you may not use my appointment date, but you may use April 2014.

by Adam Z. On 22 December 2016

DR. Alvarez is a conscientious professional. I have been seeing him for years and only have good things to say about him and his work. He did replace some fillings with a laser drill years ago, and the work seems to be holding up very well. I will never go back to mechanical drilling, that's for sure.

by Anonymous On 22 December 2016

He is professional, compassionate, and gentle. He is concerned with the patient's comfort. His state of the art equipment is painless and efficient. He is an interested and interesting person and his staff are brilliant, efficient and friendly. I recommend him to all my friends.

by Kevin R. On 22 December 2016

Dr. Alvarez is by far the best Dentist I have ever been to. He performed root canal on me and I was able to go back to work immediately after the appointment. He always explains everything thoroughly and is up to date on the latest innovations including lasers v. drills and can even mill a crown while you wait!

by By Daniel H. On 19 December 2016

I am 33 and have had about 5 dentists in my life. I started seeing Dr. Alvarez about a year ago and he will be my dentist until he retires. Extreme attention to detail. Excellent bedside manner. Doesn't push anything extra on you that you don't need. I wouldn't write this unless I meant it. Highly recommend.

by By L D On 8 November 2016

He's really gentle, smart and intuitive. He's does a great job and I would highly recommend!

by By Nikki S On 7 November 2016

Dr Alvarez always takes special care to make me feel at ease. He takes the time to answer any questions and concerns I have pertaining to my visits. Whether it's a big issue or a small one, with my teeth. It's pretty much a pleasure going to see him!

by By Angela H. On 7 November 2016

I have been struggling with new crowns/bridge I had done elsewhere. I went to Dr.Alvarez at a friend's recommendation. He did an amazing job on an upper anterior reconstruction. I am picky about my dentist since I was in the industry for many years, and I have to say....he is TERRIFIC and my smile is BEAUTIFUL!! He is a perfectionist (which I appreciate) with color and shape of the bridge/veneers. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Alvarez without hesitation.

Dr. Alvarez was absolutely amazing! This was my first time getting Botox and I was very very nervous. From the moment I walked in the door he and his entire staff made me feel comfortable and excited about my procedure. The office is clean and spa like, and feels very relaxing and upscale. Dr. Alvarez is extremely professional and he and his entire staff are all sweet, honest, and helpful. Before I knew it the procedure was over, quick and painless. Overall great experience and cant wait to go back!

by By Patricia M. On 27 October 2016

Dr Alvarez is technically excellent but compassionate as well. A great staff. Can't say enough about how pleasant my experience was.

by By A Verified Patient On 3 October 2016


by Kevin Ellis On 30 August 2016

When I was younger I had a terrible accident which left me with both front teeth broken. For years, I lamented about the procedure necessary the technology available as I looked for a skilled dentist to restore my smile. I was very skeptical after meeting a few until I met Dr. Alvarez. I immediately felt there was a fit; in terms of his impressive skill as a dentist after seeing images of his dozens of previous clients and his overall demeanor as a person. The later was very ...important to me. I did not feel like just another patient as our consultation lasted a few weeks and I was comforted by his attention to my issue as well as his focus on the details. Needless to say, he did an outstanding job and I could not have been happier. This was over 10 years ago and I have been seeing him since. Over the years, his staff has been absolutely wonderful, the office pristine and he's always used the latest dental technology available. I've never had any pain nor fuss after any of my procedures and Dr. Alvarez has always made himself available thereafter. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed. See more

by By A Verified Patient On 2 August 2016

My visit was top notch and as comfortable as can be expected for the type of procedures performed. Considering the amount of dentists that I have been to in the past, I would say that Dr. A provides services that are well above average. However, if you need any crowns for your more visible teeth, discuss your options with him. The crown moulding machine is not a good option for asthetic reasons.

by Maria S. On 27 July 2016

When the bonding on the chip on my front tooth came off for the third time, I started looking into veneers. Scared of looking artificial, having horse teeth and not wanting to deal with down-time, I held off until I found Dr. Alvarez. He designs the veneers right in front of you, prints them in his 3-D printer, and sends you off the same day with a beautiful, natural looking smile. As per his recommendation, I had my four front teeth done, and I've never smiled in more photos in my life. Dr. Alvarez is honest and laid back, never for a moment giving you the feeling that he is upselling or playing up to your insecurities to make more money. Also at his recommendation, he raised my gum line via laser on one tooth that was making my smile asymmetrical. He charged me $600, and I can honestly say it was the best money I've ever spent. You will never achieve the confidence you have when you love your smile with any other cosmetic alteration. Since my visit, I've sent both my brother and mother. Visiting with Dr. Alvarez feels like you're seeing an old friend - I can't say enough good things about him, his practice, his professionalism, and his results.

by By Franklin R. On 2 June 2016

This was a routine visit for a cleaning, X-rays, and oral exam. As usual, Dr. Alvarez performed the cleaning and exam personally. And, as usual, he was thorough, gentle, friendly, and genuinely concerned about the health of my mouth and my general well-being. I am convinced that this exam was, again, only routine, and not some elaborate procedure, because of Dr. Alvarez's consistent attentiveness and skill in caring for my mouth. No need for me to shop around; I will stick with Dr. Alvarez.

by By Diane P. On 18 May 2016

Dr A is awesome - skilled, calm and personable. Office is immaculate and friendly and staff is welcoming. Highly recommend. Diane P.

Dr. Alvarez is the best dentist I have ever visited. I have had serious issues with my teeth since I was a child and no-one was able to restore my smile before. I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for over 8 years now and my teeth and smile look amazing. It changed my life. I am able to smile all the way now ;-) Thank to Dr. Alvarez.

Simply the Best. Great staff and high quality professional services. Takes care of my entire family like we are brothers.

by Andrea M. On 2 February 2016

Dr. Alvarez has cared for me and my family since he opened his current office almost 15 years ago. Throughout the years he has provided professional, attentive and friendly care without exception. He truly cares about how my family looks and feels and clearly explains every procedure. Even my young son is completely comfortable with Dr. Alvarez. His office is also impeccably clean and fully equipped for every possible dental emergency and in-office procedure. Although I have not taken full advantage of all the state-of-the-art dental and cosmetic procedures he offers, Dr. Alvarez is expert in teeth whitening, laser treatments, Botox and Invisalign. His long-time assistant, Karen, is also friendly, professional and competent. I rarely have a wait time and have never had difficulty making an appointment or getting immediate attention when needed. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez.

by Lauren K. On 28 January 2016

Dr. Alvarez is so professional, yet personable. He explained in detail what he would be doing, was super friendly and does an amazing job.

by Kelly D. On 28 January 2016

I went to see Dr. Alvarez for a second opinion, and I am so grateful I did. The dentist I saw previous to him said I needed a root canal and or oral surgery along with Invisalign. After looking over my X-rays Dr. Alvarez told me in no way shape or form did I need a root canal or surgery (thank goodness). He suggested I get clear correct (very similar to Invisalign) because it was the banging and grinding of my teeth from my incorrect bite that was causing my tooth pain and sensitivity not a decaying root. He explained the process for both Invisalign and clear correct, clear correct seemed much more logical than Invisalign for several reasons. We even got my imaging done in the same visit to get to get it to the lab at clear correct ASAP. Dr. Alvarez was extremely gentle in checking for any sensitivity in my teeth, and explained what he was doing every step of the way. I have to say it was very nice to feel like I was being fussed over and have so much time spent on my case. This was the best dentist visit I've had quite relaxing from my usual chaotic in and out experiences else where. I go back between 4 and 6 weeks to get my first set of trays. I am beyond excited to have my bite fixed and my tooth pain go away. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Alvarez to everyone I know.

by Enzina G. On 4 January 2016

I was recommended by a close friend, now I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for more than a year now, and I will never visit another dentist again. Not only is he highly knowledgable, but friendly and always makes you feel comfortable during any procedure. My first visit over a year ago he corrected an issue I had with fillings that a previous dentist did a very bad job on, which created terrible tooth sensitivity and pain. After Dr. Alvarez corrected the issue I've never had a problem in that area again. Today's visit was for a routine cleaning and X-rays, but I have to say Dr. Alvarez was the most thorough dentist I have gone to even with a simple visit. He explains everything for you to understand and shows compassion. Highly recommend!

by Thomas H. On 10 November 2015

The best dental experience ive ever had. the staff was attentive and friendly. Answered all of my questions beforehand and made the whole appointment comfortable. Dr Alvarez treated me with consideration, making sure i felt no pain, and gave me updates with pictures of the process so i knew what was going on at all times. I really cant say enough about how good the experience was

by Susan D. On 27 October 2015

Dr.Alvarez is an excellent dentist. I arrived, was seen v. promptly. Xrays were taken that were easy, fast and pain free. They were available to Dr Alvarez immediately. Then Dr Alvarez did a great cleaning of my teeth. V. thorough and skilled job. At the end of my visit he examined my throat, tongue and felt the sides of my neck for any growths.He's a pro through in through and his bedside manner couldn't nicer or more polite.

Dr Alvarez is brilliantly educated, he thoroughly understands his field of dentistry, he commands the most advanced technology for your benefit--and he makes sure your teeth look as good as possible, even when that means substantial extra effort. He is kind, generous, and compassionate, never hurried, and always fully attentive. I've been going to him since he opened his Midtown East practice in 2002, and can confidently say he is a maestro of dentistry.

by Lloyd G. On 27 August 2015

Dr Alvarez whole heartedly cares about his patients. He is thorough, honest, and extremely gentle. He has the most up-to-date, high tech equiptment that money can buy, and tops off the experience with a personal ipad and headset so you can relax while he works. He is a doctor you can trust.

by Anthony C On 20 August 2015

As usual, he was Amazing! Describing the situation each step of the way and slways making sure I was comfortable.

Dr. Alvarez is fantastic. He talks you through each procedure and makes you feel at ease. I have a tough time with ANY doctor as I hate needles and X-rays and poking and prying but Dr. Alvarez is so patient and understanding. He takes his time to get the job done right rather than rushing through to the next patient. I have never been double-booked or had to wait long for the previous appointment to end. His team is obviously efficient but they are also kind and professional. I've been recommended to him by at least 3 separate happy clients and I would definitely HIGHLY recommended him myself.

Dr Alvarez was professional, informative and easy-going. He and is staff were friendly and efficient. They provide a clean client comfortable atmosphere. A perfect consultation experience!

Doctor Alvarez has been my dentist for over 8 years now and he is by far the best Dentist I've ever been to.  The fact that he uses a laser instead of a mechanical drill is also impressive and makes for less painful dental surgery.  When I had root canal performed it was so pain free that I was able to go back to work immediately following the procedure.  His office is so high tech that he also used the laser to map out my teeth in order to fit me for a crown, and then had a computer mill the crown right there in his office!  Great "chair-side" manner as well.

He is the best dentist i ever had!

by Enzina G. On 12 November 2014

Very professional, and friendly! Made me feel very comfortable. I went in for consultation to check on 4 previous fillings that I had done at another dentist's office in NJ. I was experiencing tooth sensitivity and something just didn't feel right about the fillings that were put in by another dentist 1 year prior. Dr. Alvarez corrected my issue very quickly and efficiently. He replaced my old fillings in two separate visits and I have been pain free and extremely happy with the results ever since. Highly recommend!

Dr Alvarez is the best. He took all of my tooth pain away! Thank you!!

by Melissa C. On 8 September 2014

The office is always clean and the staff is kind, warm and welcoming. They make the Dentist a pleasurable experience. Lovely.

by Anthony C. On 26 August 2014

Dr. Alvarez is friendly, professional and put this patient at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained the procedure precisely. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

The best dentist in all NYC!!

by Farah Alam On 7 August 2014

Honesty and integrity are the first 2 words that come to mind. Oh, and he's a great dentist too!

by Mallory G. On 5 August 2014

As always, he never disappoints!

by By Burt K. On 24 July 2014

I have been a patient of Dr. Alvarez's for 14 years. I have had several dentists prior to Dr. Alvarez and none of them come close to his attention to detail, compassion, and empathy to you as a patient. I will write a longer review at a later date, but if you are tired of dealing with dentists that deal with you as if you are bringing in your car to be fixed, Dr. Alvarez will be a breath of fresh air.

by Doug A On 17 July 2014

I never thought i would love going to the dentist!!

by Anonymous On 24 June 2014

Careful, thorough, expert, cutting-edge, the highest praise.

by Cabiria R. On 17 June 2014

Dr Alvarez and his staff were very welcoming and compassionate. As someone who is terrified of the dentist, Dr. Alvarez checked with me on how I was doing and explained what he was doing step by step. The vibe in the office is very relaxed and caring. Best of all no scary dentist smell!

by Tedd Patterson On 5 June 2014

By far, the most pleasant visit that Ive ever had to a Doctors office! Dr. Alvarez creates comfort and ease even with the most difficult situations. The best!

by Paula C. On 5 June 2014

I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for about a decade now, so obviously I think he is great. He has done a lot of work on me as my old dental work from childhood was due for an overhaul. I have had crowns, filling replacements and cleanings. Dr. Alvarez is a perfectionist who keeps up on the latest technology. He is also a kind person who does all he can to make any work done as painless as possible. The staff is very nice also. I also appreciate that he recommends only really necessary procedures and doesn't try to push anything he doesn't think is needed.

by Sheree G. On 4 June 2014

an excellent dentist, explains everything in detail. Takes his time, very friendly and knowledgable

by Deb D. On 3 June 2014

he is the only dentist i trust and would recommend him to all!

by Anonymous On 21 May 2014

Consummate skill, personal warmth, generosity to a fault. I know there are other dentists, but I don't understand why if Dr. Alvarez is available.

by Vincenzo L. On 20 May 2014

First acupuncture treatment went great. He is the best dentist I have ever been to and highly recommend him to anyone.

by Cynthia S. On 7 May 2014

It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Alverez. He's not only a great dentist but a friend. His staff is friendly and professional and his office is clean and conveniently located. He's done eveything from my veneers and Invisalign to my Botox and fillers! He's my one stop shop and I wouldn't look my best without him. I'm always getting tons of compliments though no one can tell what I've had done. Thanks Dr. A!

by Anonymous On 23 April 2014

Personable professional excellent training, great attention to detail and cares a lot about the details, wants his work to be as close to perfect as possible plus takes extra pain to reduce pain. Flexible, very caring, really an incredible dentist. Interesting that he also offers services for migraine treatment, facial cosmetics as well as dental cosmetics. Really unique and excellent doctor. Staff is gracious, helpful, pleasant. Office environment peaceful. He has up to date and cutting edge equipment and techniques. 5 stars on every level

by Frank Mazzetti On 14 March 2014

Dr. Alvarez is the best you could get, and i've been to several very good dentists (and yes some terrible ones too-as a kid i went to one who drilled through the wrong tooth). I'd love for everyone i know and care about to see him. His office is pristine and the tools of the trade are sanitized and kept in sealed packets. He is up-to-date with the latest technology. His staff is also great, friendly and accommodating, and Dr. Alvarez gives you all the time you need.

by Howard A. On 10 December 2013

Ed is very personable and caring, and also has excellent technical skills. I have been with him for years and am very satisfied!

by David G. On 11 November 2013

Dr. Alvarez embraces the latest in technology while providing unparalled customer service. Dr. Alvarez provides a comprehesive detailed plan to remedy the patients  situation. In my opinion he is well versed in his craft and has always provided his undivided attention. Dr. Alvarez made certain I was receiving the best care possible and was relentless in his pursuit to achieve that goal. His support staff Karen and Francesca  exude the same professional characteristics as Dr. Alvarez . Dr.Alvarez and his staff have made me feel like more than just a patient since my first visit.Appointment wait times are non existent and  the office compliments his style. My faith in dentistry was waning , even morseo after receiving sub standard service from doctors who merely saw me as a dollar sign. I want to thank Dr.Alvarez for restoring my faith. Not only is he very professional but also  a good  honest man with great energy.  If a regular dentist is what you seek - check the yellow pages , but if you need a Doctor  i highly recommend  Dr. Eddie Alvarez. Thanks guys , feels good to smile!

by Janine A. On 7 November 2013

Dr Alvarez is extremely gentle and caring. The only dr I look forward to seeing!!

Amazing dentist

by Kim V. On 15 August 2013

Doctor Alvarez was amazing!! He is extremely knowledgeable and takes care in explaining exactly what he is doing. He has cutting edge equipment to deliver the best treatment you can get. His dental assistant and front desk staff are VERY friendly and helpful. It's the best dental experience you will have. I actually look forward to going to the dentist. You MUST go and see him!!

by Noemi Simpson On 17 July 2013

Thank you Dr. Alvarez, we are thankful to have met you. You are a gentleman and an amazing professional. Victor and I are grateful.

by Adrienne C. On 12 February 2013

Dr. Alvarez is the only person I trust with my dental work. Going to the dentist is no longer a scary thing but I know that any time I go he will take care of me and I am 110% comfortable with him. He, unlike many dentists, will talk you through everything he is doing to make you more at ease, he checks up to make sure you are doing ok and his office staff is incredible. You get a very welcoming feeling whenever you go there. His work is top notch and he takes the time you need to get the work done, he doesn't rush you at all. He will answer all of your questions and I've been going to him for years. A+++ across the board, i recommend him to anyone!

by Anonymous On 4 February 2013

by Angel C. On 14 November 2012

Dr, Alvarez un verdadero profesional. Mil felicidadesSee Translation

by Frank Mazzetti On 15 August 2012

dr. alvarez is a perfectionist. i'm not sure if that's good for him, but it's great for his patients, of which i am one. he uses up to date equipment and his materials are top of the line. he is extremely skilled and gentle with his patients. also, patient with his patients.

by Janine A. On 8 August 2012

Dr Alvarez is amazing!! He is honest, thorough, understanding, gentle, and professional. His education and skills are more advanced than other dentists, which enables the patient to feel comfortable with his work. I recommend Dr. Alvarez to anyone that wants to have a perfect smile!!!Janine.

by Monica Powell-Toca On 16 July 2012

I love Dr. Alvarez! I was first very impressed with how many friends have already seen Dr. Alvarez and also highly recommend him. I soon learned he is not only highly trained and educated, but also lectures and teaches dentistry in America and abroad. He is also certified in acupuncture(which doesn't hurt at all) to help relieve stress and pain during certain treatments, and also botox. I have never had such a deep cleaning in my life! He also checked for mouth and throat can...cers that I have never been checked for. I also received Invisilign teeth straightening system that only took me a year, when we expected longer. His is incredibly patient,upbeat,professional. He welcomes many questions and takes the time to explain the procedures he is doing prior and what to expect before and after the process. All the staff in the office is very approachable and friendly. I have never had to wait more than a week for an appointment either. He speaks Spanish as well! I have already recommended him to my husband and my mother. See more

by M M. On 6 July 2011

I don't understand the reviewer before me, Dr. Alvarez is anything but a perfectionist, and if you find yourself dissatisfied with his work, he will not be kind to you. He will literally pull long faces and make you feel very uncomfortable. If you want work that looks cheap and subpar, you've found your dentist!!

by Meghan K. On 12 April 2011

Eddie is the best!  I have horrible teeth and therefore have been to a slew of dentists in my life, but Dr. Alvarez is the best.  He's patient, extremely skillful, and has really helped me out in binds with horrible tooth issues.  Don't know what I would do without him!!! He's very much a perfectionist, which is exactly what you'd want in a dentist.   The fact that he does his own root canals and is able to make crowns, inlays and onlays in the office is hugely advantageous as well, because it means less office visits.

by Jim H. On 14 May 2010

Eddie is a fanatic about dentistry. With his commitment to continuing education, mastery of the latest tools and techniques, it's clear that he is not just doing this for a living, he's doing it because this is his passion. I have had fillings and invisalign done by him and he has done an amazing job with both. He is able to do your fillings without any drugs or discomfort using a laser drill, which if you've never had used before, is a pretty amazing experience. What I like the most of all about Dr. Eddie is that he is able to break his work/art form down into terms than an intelligent lay person can understand, which to me is the true hallmark of an expert in their field, and probably why he is so highly sought after for speaking and teaching engagements around the country. He also has great taste in music, which you will hear while you are at his office.

by Andrew W. On 24 November 2008

I've been going to Dr. Alvarez for nearly 3 years after being enthusiastically referred to him by my uncle, who works in the area..It's just Karen, his hygenist and assistant and him. Dr. Alvarez performs all procedures, including routine cleanings, himself and is one of the friendliest doctors I've ever had in any field. He also is a pioneer in the use of lasers in dentistry. On my first visit, he used a laser to look for cavities and found one that otherwise wouldn't have been spotted. For fillings, rather than using novicane and drilling the conventional way, he uses a laser drill that is completely painless. He's since upgraded lasers to a more accurate and comfortable water laser (before you could feel something, but it didn't hurt; now you don't feel a thing). I went this morning for a filling (yes, I was bad) and the whole process took only about 20 minutes and I was able to go right to work with zero discomfort. I also hear that he can use lasers for cosmetic dentistry and is an expert in the field, but haven't taken him up on these services yet. The only downside (and hence a reluctant star off) is that he does not have staff to handle the billing, so you have to pay in full and submit a claim form to recoup whatever your insurance covers. It's not that much of a hassle, but you are out a couple hundred bucks or more for a couple weeks.

Dr. Alvarez is an excellent dentist!

by Fidel Rodriguez

Excellent experience! I have been in many different dental offices but definitely this was the best! Dr. Alvarez is so professional and caring, he takes his time to talk to you and answer all your questions very knowledgeably. His staff is so nice and efficient making you feel like family. Technology they use in office is very new up to date and impressive making the experience more comfortable even fun. I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez to everybody!

by 0to60 Tech

I had a great experience. I got exactly what I asked for "No Pain". I was treated with patience.

by Yelena Kopaygorodsky

I can’t say enough about Dr. Alvarez! He performs Botox and fillers for me and all of my coworkers and friends. Amazing! His work is flawless, and he is the nicest Dr. I know!

by Samantha G

I came in on “beauty day” . Left feeling amazing . From the staff at the front to the doctor himself they went above and beyond to make my experience comfortable and pain free . My new fuller lips are exactly what I was looking for !!!

by Abbi Packer

Dr. Alvarez is a wonderful dentist! He is a very bright and talented professional who listens to your concerns and is collaborative in planning your care. Visits are actually enjoyable!

by Anthony DeFeo

Best whitening experience ever. Dr Alvarez uses the most cutting edge technology and is extremely professional. 5 star experience with very friendly staff. Both my fiancé and I and several close friends use him. Highly recommended!

by Lloyd Gold

I have been a patient of Dr Alvarez for many a year (as well as my family) so I am clearly biased.Two weeks ago was my regular cleaning, which I prefer to do at least three times a year. It had been a while since my last set of x-rays, so it was suggested to take a new set of the rear teeth. I really don't like to take any radiation and generally look to defer this unless I feel there is an issue. Dr. Alvarez understood, but explained that there is a new technique for examination that doesn't require x-rays and in fact is more reliable in detection of issues.I agreed to this exam and sure enough there was a small cavity in between my rear tooth that would not be seen without imaging. So now I am even more impressed that the cutting edge technology is allowing me to deal with an issue that would have only gotten worse with time.Fast forward to my current visit to deal with the cavity. To be clear, I do not like the process of drilling on my teeth. But it was such a non-event in the methodology performed by Dr. Alvarez. The slight pinch of the Novocain injection was the extent of the discomfort. Dr. Alvarez volunteered to give me a visual of the cavity area once he opened it up prior to filling. This allowed me to see what the infrared technology had uncovered. Really quite incredible. Post Visit remarks: My short visit to fill the cavity required no additional pain relief and I was able to see business clients within a half hour of the appointment ending. If you need care and consideration from your Dentist, you should see Dr. Alvarez and staff. Whether it is well care or cosmetic work you are wanting----you are with one of the best!

by Jaysumma Old

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Alvarez is a total pro!

by Ken Cai Kowalski

Dr. Alvarez and his staff are extraordinarily helpful and friendly. I have recieved multiple fillings here and I can say that without a doubt, these have been the most pain-free and pleasant instances of dental work I've ever experienced. I cannot recommend this office enough.

by Kevin Ellis

When I was younger I had a terrible accident which left me with both front teeth broken. For years, I lamented about the procedure necessary the technology available as I looked for a skilled dentist to restore my smile. I was very skeptical after meeting a few until I met Dr. Alvarez.I immediately felt there was a fit; in terms of his impressive skill as a dentist after seeing images of his dozens of previous clients and his overall demeanor as a person. The later was very important to me. I did not feel like just another patient as our consultation lasted a few weeks and I was comforted by his attention to my issue as well as his focus on the details.Needless to say, he did an outstanding job and I could not have been happier. This was over 10 years ago and I have been seeing him since. Over the years, his staff has been absolutely wonderful, the office pristine and he's always used the latest dental technology available. I've never had any pain nor fuss after any of my procedures and Dr. Alvarez has always made himself available thereafter.I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.

by Yuri Figueroa

Loved the tidy office & mindfulness of the doctor and team. Appreciated that Dr. Alvarez walked me through each step in advance. It took the edge off. Thank you!
