What Our Patients Say

Dental sedation from Staten Island Dental Care is a great way to get rid of your fears of the dentist. However, don’t just take our word for it. Consider a few testimonials from our sedation dentistry patients to learn how Dr. Hecht and our team helped them overcome their dental fears.

“You worked miracles & made me smile again”

“I don’t know how to begin to tell you how wonderful my latest experience with you and everyone in your office has been. As you all know, I am one of the most apprehensive patients you have and because of that, have gone for many years coming in to see you only when it was a dire emergency. But you made me feel so comfortable on one recent visit that I actually had two procedures done without any intravenous sedation which would never have happened had it not been you doing it. You worked miracles and made me smile again.

“I wouldn’t trust my teeth to anyone else”

“Going to the dentist is not always an easy thing. But the doctor and staff are the best by far. They make my visits a pleasure every single time. I recently went through some major work and I choose to use sedation. It was the best choice I have made. I never felt any pain and it felt like I was never in the chair, it went by so quick. I totally recommend sedation—it’s the best. The dentist and staff are great and I wouldn’t trust my teeth to anyone else.”

—Jennifer Rossi

“Sedation dentistry is the best thing I have done in a very long time”

“The experience I have recently had with the sedation dentistry is the best thing I have done in a very long time. The day I had the work done, with sedation, was absolutely wonderful. I had everything done in just one shot!!!! How great is that, and with no pain!!!!! Dr. Hecht is definitely one of a kind!!!

“There is a place that truly caters to us cowards, and that place is Staten Island Dental Care”

“I cannot express in words how grateful I am to you and your patient and caring staff for making a most ‘terrifying’ experience of going to the dentist so comfortable and pleasurable. To all those fellow ‘cowards’ and ‘phobics’ out there, that there is a solution to our fears and there is a place that truly caters to us cowards…and that place is Staten Island Dental Care… Dr. Frederick Hecht and his miracle team.”

“The most pleasant dental experience I have encountered”

“I cannot say enough about your sedation dentistry procedure. When you did your initial examination of my mouth, I couldn’t believe you completely explained to me everything you were going to do, and even asked permission to touch some of my teeth. I was still nervous the day I was to undergo 3 hours of dental work, but it turned out to be the most pleasant dental experience I have encountered. After drinking the medicine, I barely remember a thing. I have no memory of drilling, which I know must have happened because I had a root canal, six cavities filled, and two crowns repaired! I highly recommend not only sedation dentistry, but you as a dentist, to anyone trying to find an excellent, gentle and kind dentist and staff.”

—Jennifer Hicks

“The best dental experience I have ever had.”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for the best dental experience I have ever had. I came to your office with a lifelong fear of the dentist: the sound of the drill, the anxiety of needles and a low tolerance for pain. I appreciate your straightforward honest style and for keeping me so well informed every step of the way. It was great to know what to expect and even better that everything that was described to me about the sedation procedure and treatment happened in the manner it was told to me, with no surprises. The painless experience resulted in my dental needs being brought up to date with no trauma, no drama. I would recommend the sedation procedure to anyone having any fear of the dentist. I guarantee satisfaction and never having to worry about being afraid of the dentist again.”
