Brooklyn Dentist

Creating Beautiful Smiles

For All Brooklynites

Pooria Shahin D.D.S.

“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.”
