Thank you to Dr. Helfner and staff for being flexible enough to see my daughter for her checkup and complete her required fillings before she left NY for college in Florida in early August. It’s a great relief to know that her teeth are healthy and she will not have to worry about them while she is starting school! Also, I greatly appreciate the effort you made to work closely with her oral surgeon in July when her wisdom teeth were removed to make sure her anesthesia was correct to make sure she did not have any allergic reaction.
Friendly professional office
The staff is very nice and professional! They always make you feel so welcome when you walk in. The office is very clean. Dr. Helfner and the rest of the staff are very nice and take the time to really teach you and especially the children how to properly take care of your teeth! My kids love going there and so do I
From the moment I walked in the door, the entire staff made me feel welcome. They were professional and friendly. The cleaning was the most thorough one I’ve ever had. I would highly recommend this office.
From the moment you walk in till leaving. The staff couldn’t be nicer or more helpful. The hygienist’s are amazing so thorough. Dr. Helfner explained everything she was doing. And made suggestions as if it was her own teeth. I have had 3 great experiences.
Dr. Helfner is a superior dentist. I’m a bit of a nervous patient because of past experiences I’ve had prior to coming to this practice. But here I always leave feeling that every concern was addressed & resolved with knowledge & compassion. It’s quite comforting. The office staff is incredible too.
The entire staff is professional and courteous. In addition to being a highly skilled dentist, Dr. Helfner’s level of care and concern for her patients is unparalleled. I highly recommend this practice.
I have been a very satisfied patient at Dr. Helfner’s office for many years. I’ve come to expect the outstanding personalized care of the doctor and her clinical team, the professionalism and smiles from the front office staff, as well as the overall comfort of my experience, including the attractiveness of the office itself. Love that salt water fish tank in the waiting room!
Always a bittersweet experience. I mean who likes the torture of a dentist? But their office makes the experience as pleasurable as possible. From the front desk to the back office to the practitioners, they are all extremely personable and very skilled. Great office overall, which is very difficult to find!
I can’t say enough good things about this office. From the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave, the staff is fabulous!!!
The people here are incredible. I am a very anxious patient and they make me feel comfortable and don’t get frustrated with me. Highly recommend it.
Team Helfner are a well organized group of professionals ready to make their clients feel comfortable, welcome, and cared for. From Kim at the front desk to Dr Curro, and everyone in between … they were great!!! I felt safe and at ease in the exam room. The assistant was professional and engaging making the x-rays fly by. The Dr made clear recommendations and happily answered my many questions.
My whole family goes to Drs Helfner and Curro! They are great and I have no hesitation recommending them. The office staff are also so helpful in making accommodations with appointments.
Bonnie Helfner, DDS, is the best dentist and she has the best dental office!! Her associate and her hygienists and her entire staff is professional and compassionate. They go out of their way to make sure your individual needs are met from the moment you walk into the office. They are flexible with appointment times and always happy to work with you to make your visit as comfortable as possible!! They are great with kids too!! I highly recommend them!!
as usual, a great visit. Had to get a crown put in. No issues and no pain during or after. Dr Curro was amazing as usual.
Everyone is just great. From reception to cleanings to dental work, everything is run smoothly, and for me, painless. Thanks for another terrific visit.
I was very impressed with this office and my son was very happy as well. The staff was so awesome from the moment we walked through the door till the minute we left. I can’t wait for MY cleaning appointment!
Dr. Helfner and her staff are phenomenal. The facility is fantastic as well!
Great office. Clean, updated equipment. My hygienist Sarah was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. She took her time to explain things to me. Same for Dr. Curro.
Dr. Helfner and her staff are awesome as always. I had to schedule an early evening appointment before I headed out of town and they were able to accommodate me. I’m very happy that my family and I came over to Dr. Helfner’s practice. More important even than the state of the art equipment is the personal touch and care they provide to patients.
The staff is excellent, they all know your name and are very warm and friendly. The cleanliness of the building is nothing like I have ever seen and I get to watch TV as I get my teeth cleaned. The best staff I have ever had at a dentist office.
No one likes going to the dentist. But. This place is the best. They care. They make you feel like you matter. Everyone i as nice as can be Very friendly.
|I am new to the practice and saw Dr. Curro for somewhat of an emergency. The staff was accommodating and kind and Dr. Curro is very professional.|
Very thorough and super accommodating. Extremely clean and updated offices and equipment. After 20 years now I know what a dentists office is supposed to look like and what dental work is needed. I wasted over 20 years on an old school sub par dentist. Getting everything taken care of the right way now
Staff is so helpful, and personable. Appointments are always on time. Helen is so caring, and efficient. She is concerned about me as she cleans my teeth. she also remembers what my kids and grandkids are doing. Always a pleasure to come to Dr. Helfner’s office.
It is always a pleasure to go to your office. You and your entire staff are so very nice and accommodating, even when I have to switch my appointment because of my daughters’ upcoming tests. Your office is spotless and I love that the fish tank is back! When I am waiting for one of my children during their appointments, I thoroughly enjoy the magazine assortment and the beverage center is a huge plus! Thanks!
1st time in office. Loved it! The staff were very friendly and so helpful. Extremely knowledgeable as well! Never had such a great experience at a dentist office until i went here. I highly recommend this dentist office!
Dr. Helfner and her staff are AMAZING!!! They are patient and sensitive to my needs (which are quite extensive!) They are friendly and helpful as well as efficient and competent!!!! This is the best office in any Medical Profession that I have ever been too. I am so satisfied with their service that my daughter is now a patient!!
|My daughter was VERY nervous but thanks to Dr. Curro and Doreen she did great. They we’re both so gentle and patient with her and really made her feel comfortable.|
Hello. This is Sue, my mother came in for a crown recementing procedure this past Monday. She is a resident of Gurwin Jewish and had never met Dr. Helfner until yesterday. She could not stop raving about what a wonderfully friendly atmosphere your office provided to all patients. She had tremendous confidence in Dr. Helfner and felt that her professionalism and caring nature far surpassed her expectations. My mother was quite flattered as the staff could not believe that she is almost 92 years old ! What a lovely experience! Thank you all on her behalf and ours as well!
Dr, Helfner has been excellent. She is very thorough with explaining what’s happening and what she is going to be doing. Her staff is very attentive and organized . The office is very clean and has a nice feel to it. There are T.V.’s in the rooms to pass the time by. When I mentioned I only like mint flavor, she ensured it was noted in my chart for the future. She tries to make you very comfortable and will consistently ask how you are doing through procedures. She makes me feel very well cared for when I am in the chair. After a procedure I had, she contacted me after to ask how I was feeling. She was highly recommended to me and now I see why.
“Extremely professional and caring. Although it is a business to be run and be profitable, the entire staff knows that we are there as patients, possibly needing some encouragement and TLC. Bravo to all of you.”
“Excellent care and excellent service. It is so hard to find a good dentist and staff. Everyone there from top to bottom makes you feel comfortable.
“I was extremely happy with my dental visit. My cleaning was great. Dr. Helfner was great. She told me a few things that my many dentists had never told me about my teeth/bones.”
“Always welcomed and treated very well. I would recommend highly to everyone I know.”
“Loved my first appointment! Deep cleaning and full xrays this time and I liked how the staff gave you their full attention and time to do what they needed to do. Best part, the tvs!”
“Great visit, i was able to fit in an appointment for cleaning and last minute filling, which was probably the easiest filling I’ve ever had!”
“Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Great service and accommodating schedules. For me the cleanings are painless. Everything I need to do is explained in cheerful tones. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a dentist.”
“At the risk of sounding like a broken record (from one who remembers such things), the Helfner crew’s legend continues to grow. Another appointment, another flawless performance. Really, this is getting boring. In a good way, of course.”
“I no longer have fear of the dentist. They listen, and understand how to respond to my needs.. The friendliest dentist office I’ve been to. I have no issue driving from Holbrook to Commack!”
“I had a cleaning, two crowns and a filling done over the course of about a month. Every time I was at the office the staff was great. The doctor was friendly, funny and most importantly pain free! As most people not a fan of the dentist but if you have to have any work done on your teeth they are the ones to use.”
“Great as always! Ava said she wasn’t scared at all Dr. H made her feel so comfortable and she was completely fine the rest of the evening. Thank you Dr. Helfner for your call to check on her!”
“I know it is hard to get excited about the dentist…I have had several root canals each done by a different dentist. This was, hands down, the best experience yet.”
“Dr. Helfner is the epitome of caring and professionalism.”
“The staff truly put me at ease helping to calm my fears. I am hopeful that, with continued visits, my fears will be nonexistent. It was an amazing experience which was hard to believe could calmed given how petrified I was prior. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!”
“What a wonderful group of people at this Dental office…They are all professional, friendly, courteous and immaculate…It is a very comfortable environment, you can’t ask for more than that…”
“Although going to the dentist in general is not the most pleasant activity, my visit yesterday was excellent both with the care the dentist gave me and the actual procedure. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.”
“I had a great experience. Everyone said hello, smiled, and acted personable and professional. My teeth cleaning was great! I felt like the hygienist was extremely thorough and did a wonderful job. Dr. Helfner was terrific too. I really enjoyed my visit and I’ll be back in 6 months.”
“An absolute pleasure. I could not find an office as accommodating, nor could you experience a more pleasant staff. It clearly begins at the top and it is rare to find such a combination of expertise and courtesy.”
“I’m generally a nervous dental patient, and I was truly put at ease throughout my first appointment at Bonnie Helfner, DDS’s office. Everyone in the office was pleasant and I truly felt like my concerns were heard and I knew exactly what was going to happen along the way. What’s more, the dentist called me to follow up later that evening (my tooth was feeling much better already!), so I felt like she truly cared about me as a patient. I’m very happy that I called.”
“My anxiety dental ridden 8 year old loves every single one in your office. It’s amazing the change from just a year ago, having to do IV sedation and holding down my daughter so they could place an IV. Yesterday, she actually let me leave the room while she talked cheer with your staff while Dr. Curro finished up her last tooth. She came out happy as can be with toys from the treasure chest and ready to pick out her Chapstick…I can’t say enough good things about the office. A true nightmare has turned into a pleasurable experience. I left out Sara as well who she loved cleaning her teeth on a previous visit.”
“Dr. Helfner is the best dentist!! And her staff is fabulous!! They run a punctual and professional office, they take the time to answer all your questions and will meet all your needs for cosmetic and family dentistry. They take most insurance plans and they are a friendly office…no stress at all!! Dr. Helfner’s warm personality eases your mind whether you are an adult or a child and her hygienists are terrific!! I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! Oh and she also resides in and gives back generously to the community!! This is the best dental office, where you get the best care and the best smiles!!”
“Wonderful staff. Dr. Helfner is so easy to talk to and takes time to explain anything! Best experience at a dentist!”
“Wonderful Dentists, Friendly Staff, Immaculate Offices, Professionals Who Make You Feel Very Comfortable…Can’t Ask for More Than That…”
“We had Dr. Helfner when my daughter was s toddler, she is now 23 and she is still our dentist.”
“I’d like to thank everyone at Dr. Bonnie Helfer office. I was in pain and they fit me in even so I was a new patient. They helped me when I was in a bind and new to Commack. They made me feel welcome and so comfortable. My own Dr. In Queens wasn’t even half as helpful. Everyone in the office was so amazingly nice. Dr. Curro is a doll. She was so patient, nice and explained everything clearly. These people are awesome! I was recommended by a friend and would in turn recommend them to everyone. Thanks Again!”
– Maryann Varisco
“Clean, cheery, state of the art dental office. Very friendly staff!! Going to the dentist is not always enjoyable, but my experience was!!”
“This is one the most professional dentist I have ever met!! The office is in pristine condition, the staff always greets me as family even know I only visit twice a year. Several years ago I recommended one of my clients to Dr. Helfners practice and the feedback was very positive as well! My favorite hygienist Helen, works so carefully and delicately on cleaning my teeth, I can almost say it is fun to see her for a cleaning… She always offers me head phones to listen to the television while she cleans away. I tip my hat to the entire staff at Bonnie Helfner’s office.”
“Dear Dr. Helfner,
I had wanted to wait until the procedures were complete before answering. All of your employees and associates are top notch. My experience and the work that was done far exceeded my expectations and quite different than what I had been used to from other practices. Dr. Curro is probably the best dentist that I have had and I am completely satisfied with her professionalism. I intend to a patient in the future and thank you for your help.”
– Stephen Freiberg
“Dr. Curro is very thorough and very good at what she does. No wonder why they’re LI’s best. I’ve been to different dentists but their practice is the best by far. Wish I found them sooner. Everything is just organized and their staff is impeccable. From billing to appointments. I can’t stop raving about them.”
“I was very impressed with the level of cleanliness at Dr. Helfner’s office. It was immaculate. Every member of the staff is professional and courteous. They all go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed into their practice as more than “just a patient”. My visit and exam was very thorough, and all of my questions were answered. I am beyond happy with my experience at Dr. Helfner’s office.”
“Very patient and nice staff. Dr. Curro is so nice and a great dentist! I was very nervous and she was so patient. She explained everything and did a great job!”
“Dr. Helfner has an outstanding dental practice. Her equipment is all state-of-the-art and her staff is professional, caring and compassionate. Dr. Helfner’s main concern is for the best dental care for her patients and she is willing to work with her patients, in every way, to achieve this. I highly recommend Dr. Helfner. She will make even the most apprehensive patient comfortable.”
“Excellent experience! Everyone is always so nice, and I didn’t feel any drilling while having a cavity replaced. The atmosphere makes you feel like your amongst friends.”
“The best dental experience I have ever had! Helen was so patient with me and Dr. Churro was very thorough. I wish I had known about them 10 years ago and I could have avoided all the work I know have to have done. I feel very comfortable with them. Thanks.”
“The decor, the front desk staff, Sara, and Dr. Helfner all made me feel relaxed. Dental exams and treatment are very stressful for me but this office has made me feel better about keeping up with regular visits.”
“Dr. Helfner’s office has very courteous and professional staff. It is always a pleasure to visit her office. Dr. Helfner is very knowledgeable and most of all caring. She is absolutely wonderful with the kids! My kids look forward to seeing her!”
“Dr. Helfner and her staff are the best I have ever been treated by! Not only does Dr. Helfner have all state-of-the-art equipment, she and her staff are completely compassionate, patient and gentle. Dr. Helfner is also very considerate of my time and sees me at my appointment time. However, she has also made herself immediately available when I broke a tooth. I highly recommend Dr. Helfner for all general dentistry needs!”
This office is amazing. From the front desk to the back…everyone here is friendly, compassionate, and above all…extremely competent. A visit to this office is not like going to your traditional dentist. They treat their patients like they’re family. Who looks forward to seeing their dentist? The patients here do, and that speaks volumes about this practice. You have to experience it to believe it!
“I have never been to an office that delivers such fantastic customer service. From the minute I called the office to schedule an appointment I was handled with the upmost respect. I work a lot and my availability is limited. The woman on the phone patiently worked with me until we came up with a time that worked with my schedule. I have already brought my husband and my two children into the office as new patients. I am beyond thrilled with the level of professionalism and I am proud to be a patient of a practice with such a positive reputation in the community. Thanks to Helfner’s Heroes!!!”
