Brooklyn Dentist

Creating Beautiful Smiles

For All Brooklynites

Pooria Shahin D.D.S.

“I had a fantastic visit. The staff and Dr. Shahin provided accurate answers to all of my inquiries. Anyone who needs any kind of oral or facial procedures in or near Williamsburg should contact them. I had four wisdom teeth removed, and my recovery went smoothly.”

“Brooklyn Dentist is the best dentist office I've ever gone to in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and I have lived here for 30 years. Dr. Shahin took care of my wife's complicated dental health while helping her have no pain. The dentists are the best and the dental assistants are top notch. Everyone in Brooklyn Dentist office is kind and professional. We love Brooklyn Dentista!”

“My experience with Dr. Shahin has always been great. I never have to wait more than 5 minutes for my teeth cleaning appointments after I check in. Most dental facilities in Brooklyn make you wait and wait. When I got my Invisalign put on, it was super fast and comfortable. I already recommended them to my family and friends. Very excited to continue my treatment here. Thank you Brooklyn Dentist!”

“I was in need of a dental implant and some dental work near Park Slope, so I checked a lot of local reviews and thankfully found Brooklyn Dentist. They have such a friendly receptionist and hygenists that convinced me to stick with them. I was very satisfied with Dr. Shahin and his dental team. They made the experience a positive one. I definitely recommend this practice for all your dental needs. Dr. Shahin has a gift as well as up to date dental equipments! His artistic ability along with his superior dental knowledge produced results that was better than I ever thought possible.”

“I was on vacation passing by Brooklyn Heights, and I got a really bad pain on my tooth. I searched the web for urgent dental care near Downtown Brooklyn and noticed Brooklyn Dentist was open on weekends. I called to check availability and they squeezed me right in. I though I needed a dental specialist because I didn't think they could do anything about the infection the same day, but not only they prescribed me tot ake antibiotics for getting rid of infection and pain meds, but they treated the tooth with an emergency root canal. Very thankful they helped me even though I wasn't a regular patient. Very attentive and great at what they do. Awesome emergency dentist near Downtown Brooklyn!”

“The best dentist office in Brooklyn. They don't ever hurt you, and the office staff is very friendly. Been going there for many years.”

“I love love love Brooklyn Dentist!! I have been coming to see Dr. Shahin for over a decade because of the quality dental work and the diligent dental team. Things to mention: all their dental products are high quality and last long. Their default tooth filings are composite or white fillings; this is a big plus! Lastly, Dr. Shahin went out of his way to explain everything in detail, and I fully trust this Clinton Hill doctor and dentist office! Thank you for keeping my smile perfect!!”

“I came to Brooklyn Dentist near Bensonhurst for a regular dental check-up. The front desk girls were very polite. I did not wait long. When I met the dentist, he was professional and explained to me what dental services were needed. I got the cost estimate for the dental cleaning and the cost of dental work I needed for future tooth implants, which was reasonable given the fact that I have a PPO dental insurance. Oh, I forgot to tell you it's so close to Brooklyn Prospect Park and Eastern PKWY, and there's lots of parking.”

“Oh my god, I will never stop saying good things about Dr. Shahin and his amazing staff (shoutout to Queen, Nicole and Diana). I had a tooth abscess in a tricky spot close to my nerves, and it was also my first time visiting an oral surgeon, so I was quite anxious. Dr. Shahin put me at ease, performed the tooth extraction and the drainage of the abscess procedure in-office and with no pain. He also responded to my many calls and texts during the recovery period. He also suggested over the counter medication for pain management that was very effective. I am a fan for life, and won't even look at another oral surgeon's office.”

“My wife needed to get help for a tooth ache. We came across this Gem on Zocdoc and Google. They had great reviews so we gave it a try. This dentist near the Barclays Center is open on Saturdays! They are the most clean and modern dental office we've seen in Brooklyn. The owner took the time out to chat with us to get to the bottom of the dental issue we had. The staff made a stressful situation easy. We will be going back to Brooklyn Dentist. You rock!”

“I am convinced Pooria Shahin DDS would be voted as one of our nation's very finest if there was an award for the top dentists in America. I am not related to Dr. Shahin, other than being his longtime patient in the Crown Heights dental office. I have greatly benefited from his expertise in dentistry. He is careful and extremely experienced in the field of dentistry. I have endured through a myriad of dental procedures and I feel very fortunate to be under Dr. Shahin's care. I highly recommend Brooklyn Dentist in the 11216 zipcode area.”

“I live in lower Manhattan, and I was on Brooklyn Bridge when I had a dental emergency. This dentist in Brooklyn was open on a Saturday, and he got me fixed up quickly. I was struck by the bedside manners and friendliness. I wish I could make him my primary dentist!”

“Dr. Shahin and his hygienists are angels. I had my worst nightmare come true - a tooth broke in half on the right side. A black hole existed at the very end of my smile line. I was seen the same day and they were very patient with my litany of questions. Made me a temporary crown. I can't even tell which tooth it was. Extremely affordable, professional, and courteous. I almost fell out of the chair in a good way when I found out how much a porcelain crown cost in Brooklyn! The staff goes above and beyond and work with you financially. They truly exceeded my expectations. I highly highly recommend and will put out the word that Dr. Shahin and Brooklyn Dentist near Carroll Gardens is the only place to go for your teeth as he is the best dentist in Brooklyn!”

“I have gone to Dr. Pooria Shahin since I was in middle school. He and his staff are very helpful and always make you feel like a valued patient. They have the latest dental equipments and the dreaded dentist visits become less scary. I always have a million issues with my teeth that are quite embarrassing to say the least. When they treat you, they never make you feel guilty. I was so embarrassed about how I had let my teeth go, and they honestly don't make you feel like you are being judged. I highly recommend Brooklyn Dental and Dr. Shahin to anyone looking for an experienced dental professionals near Prospect Heights, Brooklyn!”

“I have been a patient of Dr Shahin's for many years. As a fellow healthcare provider I think Dr. Shahin is an excellent addition to Clinton Hill area. He listens to his patients carefully. When I had my tooth implant placed he kept in touch and offered instructions to make sure it healed as planned. The procedure had me a bit concerned, but I can honestly say I did not have a minute's trouble with it. The whole procedure was as simple as having a filling placed, which was a pleasant surprise. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Shahin and Brooklyn Dentist.”

“I'm glad I waited for the right doctor/dentist to fix my smile. I'm a 30ish female who used to have crooked teeth, which is why I never smiled much until recently. Dr Shahin suggested orthodontic treatment(Invisalign) first and after that at home whitening to whiten tobacco stained teeth. What a difference in my smile. It almost took a year to straighten my teeth and only 2 weeks for the whitening. He gave me a smile like a celebrity. I am so delighted with my smile that I smile all the time. This is the best cosmetic dentist in Crown Heights, Brooklyn”

“Most thorough dental cleaning ever, and it wasn't painful at all. Staff was helpful, friendly, and efficient. The dentist himself was conservative and upfront about recommendations for periodontitis cures; my gums had deteriorated compared to pre-pandemic (I skipped a few cleanings during the pandemic), and another dentist in Williamsburg tried to push a deep clean without explaining why. Brooklyn Dentist gave me options such as being diligent at home until my gums health improved or coming in for more frequent cleanings. I've since relocated to Bushwick, but I still go to Dr. Shahin, and my gums are back to normal without needing a deep clean.”

“I've been coming to Brooklyn Dental and Dr. Shahin for many years. I first found Dr. Shahin when looking for a dentist near Dumbo that could provide an assessment of Invisalign to fix some bite issues. Dr. Shahin was incredibly detailed and thorough in his explanation, spending a good amount of time explaining everything, even the retainers and how to keep my teeth straight after the treatment. My case was very complex, so he referred me to an orthodontist to do the Invisalign despite being a certified Invisalign Provider himself. He has been my regular dentist despite the commute from Dumbo to Crown Heights. The staff is great at ensuring your insurance benefits get maximized and your out of pocket cost minimized. I could not recommend them more.”

“Great visit, I will definitely go back. I had the most thorough teeth cleaning in thirty-six years. And while they were cleaning my teeth, I could listen to a podcast with my airpods. They really care! Dr. Shahin very patiently talked me through what he found and all my treatment options. I am glad to now have a dentist I like near Eastern Parkway.”

“I had a great first time experience, which exceeded my expectations. Amazing group of people. I had a previous dentist who retired, so for a while I was in need of a new family dentist in Park Slope. Queen (the dental hygienist) did an amazing job and was very thorough and explained everything about my 1st teeth cleaning. Dr. Shahin came recommended and now I will be doing the recommending.”

“It was really a great experience. I went there for an extraction. I left with no pain and I woke up with no pain. I love this dentist office. It's the best in Brooklyn.”

“I’ve been a patient for over 13 years, and will keep going there. I do recommend it to everyone for the following reasons:
- From front desk staff to the doctor himself, they listen to you very carefully to make sure they meet your needs.
- Very welcoming and friendly atmosphere while keeping it professional. I love the doctors pleasant bedside manners.
- Getting his DDS degree from Columbia University, the doctor is armed with knowledge and years of experience with great attention to details. Did you know he’s also an artist? An expert in Marquetry (In case you don’t know what it is, Google it; you’ll be amazed).”

“Just found my new long-term dentist. Dr. Shahin is one of the only dentists in Brooklyn that does not push unnecessary procedures. The office is perfectly clean and fancy. The staff will walk you through the pricing. I was very happy with my first appointment. The whole office looks like a happy work environment.”

“I saw this dentist for the first time. I just moved to Brooklyn, and didn't know anyone for recommendation. Just Googled this business and gave it a try. The office is very clean and modern. The staff is also very friendly, and they figured out my insurance information. They have a very skilled Hygeniest. I will definitely come back every 6 months for my teeth cleanings.”

“Great experience. The doctor was very thorough and calming. The extraction went smooth with no initial pain. I’m very happy with my experience.”

“I have been a patient here for the past 3 years and I’m very pleased. Dr. Shahin is friendly, compassionate and most important very professional. I highly recommend this dental office!”

“This is the first dental office where my daughter and I are able to be seen on the same day. The staff is very courteous and friendly. There is never a long wait time prior to seeing the physician.”

“Definitely one of the best dentist in New York hands down, very great experience no pain. 🙂”

“I went to Brooklyn Dentist in Crown Heights, Brooklyn for a cleaning and I will definitely be back. I came across this Brooklyn dentist office as a recent NY transplant in need of a local dentist! I was looking for a dentist near me in Brooklyn heights, and I found their Instagram. Their instagram page has many before and after photos that made me comfortable and confident scheduling an appointment with the team. The staff was welcoming and professional. Doctor Shahin had a high attention to detail and made me feel right at home- that is really saying something coming from someone who hates dental appointments (who doesn’t)! This is clearly a top-rated dentist in Brooklyn. If you need tooth implants in Brooklyn, a general dentist in Fort Greene, or an oral surgeon in Park Slope, Brooklyn, give them a call. The office is clean and I will be going there for all my future dental needs!”

“Great experience excellent service really nice staff”

“Conveniently located. Professional staff. Clean up to date facility.”

“Initially I chose First Impressions out of necessity many years ago. I was in dire straights with one of my wisdom teeth. Another wisdom tooth and many cleanings later, I go to First Impressions because they are my dentist. Nicole, The Doc and Queen command five stars across the board. First Impressions was the first and is probably the only dentist on the modern day Franklin Avenue. I was born and raised in Crown Heights. Before then I had to go to the NYU dental school on 23rd. Street in the city. Huge, welcome asset to the neighborhood. Cleanings are usually recommended every 6 months. I go every 4!!!!”

“The entire office staff is truly amazing and Dr. Shahin an awesome doctor. I am always accommodated and well taken care from start to finish. This office deserves all the praises and thensome. I am truly a very happy and thankful patient.”

“This is such a great modern dental practice. The practice has friendly staff and the dentist is quite impressive. It’s difficult to find a practice as comfortable and a dentist as committed to his patients as this one. 5 stars!”

“Been going here for years. The care is great and they have always been really flexible with accepting my insurance whenever it has changed.”

“Really great clinic and dentist. Dr. Shahin is really thorough and took great care of my teeth. I'm personally have some anxiety with dental work, but Dr. Shahin is calming and sensitive about it. He's going to be my go-to for regular cleanings and anything else dental related. The staff as a whole is professional and friendly.”

“I have been a patient here along with my Two children for over 10 years now, I love 1st impression. The patient care is amazing. Everyone is so pleasant and I have always had an amazing experience. I moved from the neighborhood for over 8 years now but I still return here for care. I would recommended 1st impression to anyone who ask, you won’t regret it.”

“Because Dr Shahin is the best. Understood. I’ve taken years changing plans just to get back to him with his light hand my other experiences were not that great with dentist but he is simply the best”

“Very friendly staff, dentist is awesome.”

“I've been a patient for about 3 years and have nothing but glowing things to say about the entire team. When I first came to see Dr. Shahin I wasn't in very good shape. I had lost some teeth in an accident and had temporary implants put in by a prior dentist. But that practice went out of business without notice and left me in a bit of a lurch. Dr. Shahin was very understanding and despite me not having access to any records was quickly able to diagnose my needs, prepare a treatment plan and get me on the road to better teeth. Within a short period of time I had a brand new permanent implant and a modicum of peace back. Since then all of my regular visits have gone smoothly from billing, x-rays and treatment. The entire team is wonderful and can't recommend more highly!”

“I’ve been coming here for years and highly recommend for the customer service and environment! Dr. Shahin and his staff always make my routine visit fast and easy, and I love that they remind you of upcoming appointments and reschedule appointments very easily. Look no further!”

“Dr. Shahin and the 1st Impression team are fabulous. It’s simple and easy every time I come in, even as I’ve changed dental insurances. Dr. Shahin takes the time to answer questions and offer his recommendations and is a great dentist. Highly recommended.”

“Dr. Shahin cares so much. He did a post and core with an amazing crown/prosthetic that looks real. And I just got a cleaning that is brilliant. The front desk staff is warm and efficient. This office is a must visit!”

“I've used this dental practice for cleaning and a few procedures. Very good dentist and great staff.”

“Prompt informative service”

“Everyone at this office has always been helpful, rather it be billing or explaining what needs to happen to keep my smile good. The whole staff is polite and they’re truly accommodating to you if you need to reschedule.”

“The dentist is extremely professional and honest. I'm glad I've found a very good quality of service and care for the patient. I already made my appointment for the next 6 months teeth cleaning.”

“I always have a great experience. I don't ever have to wait and the staff are courteous.”

“I’ve always felt very taken care of and welcomed!”

“Nice clean office with a very friendly staff. The dentist ask questions and gives suggestions with gentle quick service.”

“A very hygienic clinic with alot of equipments. Thumbs up for the good work!”

“I recommend this office because the staff is wonderful the lady at the Front desk is so sweet she answered all of my questions about my insurance and the dental assistant was very gentle when taking the x-rays then the doctor greeted me after the x-rays and gave me a very thorough cleaning my mouth felt so clean after …overall my frist visit was great …”

“Dr Shahin is probably the best oral surgeon I’ve ever met, very professional and highly skilled in dentistry.. I have been neglecting my teeth for a long time, Dr Shahin gave me a new smile and greater confidence.. He has a great touch, getting procedures done effectively and less painful.. I recommended him to my friends and family… You will definitely smile a lot more after Dr Shahin attends to your oral health…”

“Great experience. I was looking for a Brooklyn dentist for a dental emergency, and was referred to Dr. Shahin by a colleague. I must say this was the best experience I have ever had at the dentist. I had a severe toochache that kept me up all night. They squeezed me in for an emergency dental visit, and Dr. Shahin did a pulpotomy and then a root canal, and my toothache was no more. I am going back in a week for a checkup and tooth cleaning. He is my regular dentist now. If you ever need a dentist in Crown Heights, Brooklyn area, definitely try 1st Impression Dental and thank me later. 😉”

“Dr. Shahin is a highly skilled dentist. He is very attentive to the needs of his patients. He took care of my broken tooth and I was very impressed with the results. I felt no discomfort during and after the proceeding. The staff is extremely friendly and professional. The office atmosphere is very comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Shahin to anyone who is looking for a great dentist.”

“My treatment at 1st Impression Dental was superb. The entire staff was courteous, friendly and professional. I received excellent care in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr. Shahin.”

“1st Impression dental was the best way experience I have had regarding dental work. I had had several bad experiences when I was younger and neglected my teeth as a result.:What a pleasant surprise my treatment from Dr Shahin was. I had a number implants and the extra experience was pain free. I spent very little time in the chair and the work was completed in no time. I cannot recommend 1ST Impression Dental highly enough.”

“Professional and friendly staff.”

“I’ve been going to Dr. Shahin for a few years. I got an implant done and it looks perfect. Will always recommend.”

“Definitely recommend. Very modern office.”

“Dr. Pooria Shahin and his Staff were GREAT!!!!. His staff was friendly and professional, He explained everything to me as he went about doing the the procedure. He made me comfortable, in his chair and made sure I was not experiencing any pain during the process . I have already decided he will be my Dentist for any and all my dental needs and treatments from now on. If you want to get excellent care and treatment, Make an appointment with Dr. Shahin”

“This was a great experience for me with no dental insurance. They are all so nice and I was scared to have a tooth removed. The doctor was so gentle. This is my new Dentist period!”

“1st Impression Dental is extremely clean and professional. Dr. Shahin is very kind and truly cares about your experience there. He is honest and upfront about costs and expectations. He explains everything clearly to make sure you understand. I had a cleaning and X-rays and was very happy with the service overall. Will definitely be going back in the future!”

“I visited First Impression from a friend‘s referral and I must say I was impressed with the dental service I got from deep cleaning to fillings. I loved how comfortable each appointment was and most importantly the care and reliability across the practice.”

“I recently completed dental work at 1st Impression Dental. I was very impressed by the staff and their attention to cleanliness. Everyone made me feel very comfortable, this made the experience so much better than previous dental offices i have used. I will be returning for future dental work and also recommending the office to my friends and family.”

“Dr. Shahin Is incredible! I highly recommend. He acts like your his only patient and puts so much work into everything he does. The place is super clean & I feel so comfortable every time I go in! I am usually so afraid of going to the dentist but he makes my experience Phenomenal every time!!!”

“The place is really clean and the service is professional! Wide variety of services are provided. I would recommend it for sure!”

“Dr Shahin and his staff are excellent! I get nervous visiting the dentist, but everyone was very friendly and made me feel comfortable and at ease! I will definitely be coming back!”

“Clean office and professional service. The staff was really friendly and I look forward to my next visit!”

“Easy appointment and nice employees. If I weren’t moving I would go back.”

“They were very nice & helpful. Only thing was they didn’t accept my insurance & I had to pay out of pocket but other than that I had a pleasant visit.”

“I had gone to see Dr. Shahin a few months ago because I had broken a front tooth that had a crown on it. I was unable to see my regular dentist because it was a late Saturday afternoon and they were closed, but Dr. Shahin saw me with no hesitation and did an amazing job. I was concerned because it was a front tooth, and I was afraid that I would have needed an implant due to how badly the tooth had broken. Dr. Shahin was very honest, and explained what he was going to do in order to fix my tooth prior to him actually working on the tooth. He was patient as I asked all of my questions and as I raised my concerns. He did a great job in saving my tooth!”

“What can I say? Dr. Shahin is the best. Typically we get scared when you go to the dentist, but everyone from the reception to the nurse to Dr. Shahin himself makes your visit so pleasant. I highly recommend this dental office to everyone. Thank you so much guys!! See you in January!!”

“Dr. Shah is amazing, and everyone at the office makes going to the dentist such a pleasant experience. I moved to Philadelphia a few years ago, and still refuse to switch dentists. I fully endorse and recommend.”

“Clean and comfortable office. Excellent customer service. Very Personable and Professional Dentist and dental room Assistant are very caring and concerned about your "in the Chair" experience. Highly recommended to anyone needing a Dentist.”

“This place has the best dentist I have ever been too. So kind, caring and they do a great job. If you do not have insurance you can sign up for Doctors Network which really helps with the cost.”

“Been going here for about four years. Always a good experience: fast, friendly no nonsense, practical dentist and staff. I also had all four of my wisdom teeth removed here with a local anaesthetic no problem.”

“First impression has the most welcoming staff, from booking an appointment to coming into the office. Dr Shahin is quite through with cleanings. I always leave feeling more knowledgeable about how to take better care of my teeth. Highly recommend!”

“Great visit with Dr. Shahin! He was very thorough, listened to my concerns, and the girls at the front were very welcoming and helpful. Would 100% recommended!!”

“Very friendly, professional, clean, calm, on time, beautiful and modern interior. Best dentist i ever had”

“Very good dentist and calming, went through a whole extraction implant process. Staff is also friendly and helpful but the appointment policy is quite inflexible, so be aware, I had to pay out of pocket. Otherwise everything else was excellent.”
