I cracked half my tooth on a Friday after 5 pm. I found Dr. Shor's practice under emergency dentist in my area. I was suprised and relieved that Dr. Shor called me right back, within a matter of minutes and setup a visit on a Saturday that he typically didn't work and was not only professional and kind, but he explained the reason for my fractured tooth and took care of it in the most gentle manner. I had no post pain and am relieved that I don't have to go to work with a cracked tooth. I highly recommend Dr. Shor (and Lisa, too) and his staff for their professionalism and for taking time out of their lives to assist me.
Dr. Shor and his staff were so helpful and friendly. I needed a tooth pulled and other dentists had me waiting weeks before they could see me, but Dr. Shor saw me ASAP. His staff was exceptionally accommodating, I highly recommend Dr. Shor and his office.
I've been to a whole bunch of Dentist's, this one is by far the best. Dr. Shor and his assistant Lisa and all the staff take extra care to make sure it's painless and happy experience. Thank you for all your hard work you guys are the best!
In Brick from Ct.for work when boom!! Toothache from He..! Called Dr.Shor,They had me in within 2 hrs.Debbie at the desk was super,and Rosemary was so friendly and attentive explaining everything,as for Dr.Liz totally Awesome!!! She had my "STUBBORN"tooth extracted in no time making sure all along that I was feeling no pain!! And on top of all that they went above and beyond and did me a solid with the invoice! Let's just say Amazing Service!!!
I've gone here my whole life, but I was reminded yesterday as to why. The staff has always been friendly, but I don't know if I could put into words how amazing Jennifer and Dr. Shor were to me yesterday. I suffer from extreme anxiety, and having to get such a simple procedure done which required me to have my mouth numbed completely pushed me over the edge. Dr Shor and Jennifer were extremely patient, waiting almost 45 minutes for me to calm down to begin the procedure. The whole time, they talked to me reminded me how simple it was, and that everything would be ok. Once everything was said and done, of course, I was ok.. But I really don't think I would have even followed through with it if it wasn't for them being so patient, understanding and kind to me. Thank you so much!!
Dr. Shor is an excellent dentist and his staff is beyond friendly and welcoming. I would 100% recommend Dr. Shor and his staff to anyone. His main priority is his patients dental health and comfort. He has helped my smile tremendously and for that I am truly grateful. I will never go to another dentist again.
My wife has always had a fear of dentists. Recently she had a problem with her teeth which needed immediate attention. Dr . Shor was compassionate, extremely knowledgeable and most of all he really listened to her concerns . Dr. Shor's assistant, Lisa, was pleasant and able to calm my wife's fears through her patient and caring manner. She also was skillful and proficient in her work. Kudos to Dr. Shor, Lisa and the entire staff. We would highly recommend them !
What an inviting atmosphere. It’s a unique union of relaxed unhurried luxury guarantee at each visit. Being greeted warmly by Amy at the front desk, to the excellent care given by Karen, the dental hygienist was an uplifting memorable experience. Every office visit reminded me of the song titled “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”. Dr. Shor’s keen understanding for his profession blended with his soothing manner was spot -on as he calmed my nerves while explaining the entire procedure upfront and gave updates along the way. Lisa and Rosemary are the finest dental assistants hand-downs! They delivered great care to insure comfort and ease, it meant a lot to me, thanks ladies!!!!! Margaret B., Toms River, NJ
Excellent dentist ! I highly recommend Dr. Shor and Rosemary was wonderful, charming and caring..
What a great experience! I neglected my teeth for so long that one of my molars was on its last leg. Lisa and Dr. Shor were spectacular in explaining my options and keeping me calm thoughout the procedure. Highly recommend this office, especially if you are a big baby when it comes to dental work.
After holding myself back from returning to the dentist after tons of horrible experiences and just fear in the dentist, this past week I've had horrible pain in my lower left side. A friend told me to go to Dr Santo Trufolo and Dr.Alex shor. called at 12pm and they were able to get me in that evening. Walking in i was so nervous and terrified! Lisa the dental assistant was so incredible and calmed me down and made me feel so comfortable.Dr. Alex also made me feel so comfortable and gave me options to fix my issue. I could not get the procedure done that day they were able to fit me in the following day as they said another doctor would be doing it the following day i became nervous and anxious not knowing if that doctor would make me feel as comfortable . long story short. Lisa the dental assistant was there again the following day and continued to make me feel just as comfortable and held my hand the entire time. Dr liz was so incredible and made me feel just as comfortable if not more. And to top it all of doctor liz called me today to check up on me! I will be a returning patient and I defiantly recommend this office they are incredible! I wish Icould give more then five stars!
I will start by telling you that I'm terrified of dentists. Part of the reason why my gums are so bad is because of that fear. On New Years Eve I had a terrible tooth ache. My dentist was off until Tuesday. I called Dr Shor's emergency number and he called me right back and was very concerned. Didn't know me but apologized that he couldn't see me as did not staff because of the Holiday. He fit me in on that Monday and pulled the tooth. Since then I am getting a bridge for the front teeth. It has been rough because of my gum issues and sensitive teeth. I have been in his office every week. You would figure he would be really annoyed by this point but he is not. He always tAkes the time to talk to me and give me options .i have needed 2 emergency root canal s and he always always makes time regardless of how busy he is. He is honest without being mean or condescending . He is a total perfectionist and you don't leave his office unless he feels everything done perfectly. He is one of the few I trust. All the office ladies are extremely nice. All I can say if you are afraid like me he is the dentist for you. I will never love having to go and will always be nervous but mind it a lot less because of him and his staff
I've always hated the dentist..I would avoid going at all costs..I cannot explain how scared I was to undergo multiple fillings at once, but Dr. Shor made me feel so at ease with my fears explaining everything to me and being so thorough and made everything go so smoothly. Lisa one of the hygienists is truly amazing, she eased my anxiety and made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. So happy I finally found the right dentist for me!! I couldn't of had a better experience with Dr. Shor and Lisa. Thank you both for easing my fears of the dentist!!!
I've always hated the dentist from never really going to one during my early and teen years and I heard from so many people that my experiences would get better when I found "the right one." Well, here's to never allowing Dr. Shor to move or retire! I cannot explain how scared I was to undergo a dental crown procedure, but Dr. Shor made me feel great. Lisa the hygienist is truly an angel on earth. She shaped a very comfortable temporary for me and I just went back to get a beautiful permanent zirconia crown today. It fits absolutely perfectly, feels spectacular, and lies perfectly flush with the teeth on each side...I love it so much! The employee at the front desk did such a good job estimating my insurance that the final cost was even LESS than what I expected it to be. I seriously cannot recommend or thank these guys enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I had a killer tooth ace so I googled a dentist near me and found Dr. Shor. They took me in the same day, of course I was scared and nervous but Dr. Shor & his staff made sure my first experience with them was nothing more than wonderful. Dr. Shor is my new dentist as well for my kids.
Dr Shor and his staff are awesome! He does everything in his power to make sure that I experience no pain at all and his staff is right there making you feel comfortable right by his side. I will most definetly continue to refer him to friends and family! He makes going to the dentist a pleasure!!
I liked how everyone treated you like a human and not just a number. They are all honest and really friendly. Shout out to Mercedes, she really made me feel comfortable and was easy to talk to. Overall great place with good people. I will be back for further work to be done. !!!
They should have more stars to give to Dr. Shor & Lisa, who saved me today! I was in extreme pain from a toothache, & even though I did not have an appointment, they took care of me from beginning to end. Compassionate & thorough, Dr. Shor & Lisa both made my bad tooth problem get better. A great staff, a great office, & a great dentist!
Dr. Shor is extremely knowledged with a friendly demeanor. Staff were very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Had some extreme dental work with no pain.
After over a month of tooth pain i called the office of Dr Shor, they got me in same day and a day later i was pain free .Dr Shor is a fantastic dentist ,and the office staff are friendly and efficient.I highly recommend Dr shor for all your dental needs.
The purpose of my visit was to get a filling (done by a different dentist) examined because I believe it to be cracked. My assertions were correct the filling was indeed broken. Dr. Shor was extremely thorough and honest explaining both worst and best case scenarios in detail, as a large amount of rot had accumulated underneath the filling. Knowing I had no dental insurance he assured me that he would do all in his power to save the tooth to avoid doing a root canal. (He saved the tooth BTW) Both Dr. and staff were extremely professional, kind, and efficient. Very pleasurably experience, highly recommended.
I don't usually write reviews; But let me start by saying I Love Dr. Shor, Dr. Trufolo and the entire staff. From the moment you walk through the door you're treated like family. All the girls always have a bright smile and make you feel at ease. Lynn who does my cleaning takes such pride in her craft, and is so very sweet. I needed a tooth extracted and a few cavities filled and Dr. Bernstein and Dr. Shor made me feel so comfortable explaining to me in great detail the entire process; After Dr. Shor was finished I looked in the mirror and was so amazed. Everyone at this practice takes such pride in what they do and it really shows. Not only do I not fear going to the dentist; I actually look forward to it. I Found An Outstanding Dentist That I Will Highly Recommend To All.... Thank You For Putting A Bright Smile On My Face - Robert J. Spada
I have been going to Dr. Shor for several years now and would not even think of going anywhere else. Dr. Shor is a perfectionist, accommodating, professional, and a kind, thoughtful and gentle man. He and his staff could not be more receptive to a person's needs. His staff is friendly, personable and efficient. In this office, the word TEAM, means TEAM. If you are looking for a great dentist, exceptional staff and all around great experience - this is the place to go!
This is a long review but I speak from the heart, I cannot say enough great things about the people in this office I have been going here for almost ten years as a regular dental patient. From the hygienists to the doctors everyone is great and the level of care received is comforting, it's a friendly atmosphere and they actually remember you! After years of wishing my teeth could be straighter and doing my own research on Invisalign but afraid to bear the cost and time of doing it I kept putting it off. It wasn't until after a six month cleaning and a long honest conversation with with Dr. Shor about how unhappy I was with the shifting that was occurring that I finally pulled the plug and scheduled an Invisalign consultation in January 2015. The process after that was incredibly simple, Dr. Shor explained the whole process, took pictures of my teeth and after a short time Invisalign came up with a course of treatment using 3D models. Once I gave the ok and a series of impressions later the trays were made and I was on the road to straighter teeth. Throughout the whole treatment which was a year and a half I had the support of Dr. Shor and his staff. They were very accommodating with scheduling of appointments and anytime I called with a concern they were quick to help. My treatment has come to the end and my teeth look awesome! I am very pleased with the results and it was worth the cost and time. If you are looking for an Invisalign dentist contact Dr. Shor!
My experience with your office and staff was extremely pleasant and professional. From the initial phone call to set up an appointment for my mother in an emergency situation to the manner in which she was treated was extraordinary. The staff along with Dr. Shor couldn't have been more kind and accommodating. I would highly recommend your office to anyone seeking dental services.
I wish to commend the entire staff for their outstanding efforts and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty in giving me a "BEAUTIFUL" smile! I deeply appreciate everyone's remarkable problem-solving abilities, professionalism, and exceptional prompt and courteous service I received at each and every visit. “Warmest Thanks” to Dr. Shor and his entire staff for their outstanding efforts and going the extra mile! I am fortunate to have benefited from Dr. Shor and his staff's contributions, and I for one, look forward in continuing my services with them. THANK YOU All For An Outstanding Smile!!!!!
My family has been going to this dental office for many years. The doctors and staff are wonderful. I highly recommend that any one looking for a dental office to call home look no further.
I had invisalign done this year. Dr. Shor and his staff were so helpful and informative every step of the way. Dr. Shor explained everything clearly and told me exactly what to expect each step of the way. His staff was exceptionally accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Shor and his office.
As usual my teeth are the last thing I attend to so a molar started to act up and of course it was on the w/e.I found by chance a dentist to call me back on sunday and it was Dr. Shor.Explaining that I was in a lot of pain and the first thing he said was we'll take care of it and I'll see you tomorrow morning again don't worry.How many times do you hear that zero times and to take me as a new patient.My experience from the moment I walked in until I had my tooth extracted was wonderful.The professionalism and care was superior and I found myself a terrific dentist, and would recommend them with flying colors.
