Dr. DeBonis should be your new dentist! – This is your new dentist. I was discouraged in my search for new doctors and such when I moved from California. I'm so grateful my friend and coworker Gary recommended Dr. DeBonis. He is kind, gentle, smart about treatments and his staff is great. His office is comfortable and friendly. He has given me very good advice and referrals. Most importantly, I trust him.
Great Dentist – I will keep this short. I was refered to him by a colleague when I moved from London. The majority of the team I work with go to him and all feel the same as I do. Dr. DeBonis and his team are amazing! So nice and so caring.
Anyone looking for a new dentist will not be dissapointed!
Attentive, Individualized Care! – A co-worker referred me to Dr. DeBonis back in 2007 and I've been loyal ever since that first visit when Dr. D and his assistant Val took the time to not only get to know my teeth and dental history, but also me and my interests. And they remember what you tell them; every visit I make they ask about my partner and my professional life, and I ask about theirs in return. I don't know what I'll do if I ever leave NY. Probably come back every 6 months just to have my check-ups with Dr. D's team!
I've been so pleased with Dr. D's practice that I've in turn referred many a new co-worker seeking a dentist and they've all come back to thank me profusely for recommending such an attentive, fun atmosphere for their dental care and sometimes dental woes.
What strikes me about Dr. D's practice is the level of individualized care and attention they pay not just to your smile, but to you as a whole person, a quality that has persisted over the years. They've seen me through my first root canal after a freak accident that resulted in a facial injury and aggravated nerve in a back molar. And I'm almost done with the Invisalign process which has my teeth finally straightened out and looking better than ever. Through all of this, Dr. D has always taken the time to explain in great detail via diagrams and models what is going on with my teeth and bite. And if you're on top of your brushing and flossing, you might just end up in the running for "best smile of the month"!
Great Practice! And The Real Thing! :) – I was referred to Dr. DeBonis in 2004 by my prior dentist when I moved to NYC. I remember at first I was reluctant to try his practice because he wasn't "in-network" for me. I wasn't sure if it would be worth any extra cost I might pay beyond insurance. However, not having another rec, I did visit Dr. DeBonis, and I couldn't have been happier! I've been a satisfied patient there for the past 7 years!
Four things stand out for me: First, they have a reliably meticulous approach to cleanings and more complex procedures (I had a root canal done there). Second, the whole team is warm and attentive. Their level of personal attention makes it feel almost like a "dental spa!"
Third, I like that Dr. DeBonis and his assistants are actively/intelligently engaged with patients' lives, world news, NYC cultural events, etc. Not required but reassuring! Finally, I feel the practice is fair in its operations. If I have ever expressed any concerns re costs or necessary procedures, the conversation/solution that followed was always thoughtful, respectful, considerate and fair. Overall, a great Dr. and a great practice!
Excellent Dental Care and Dentist – The first time I went to see Dr. DeBonis was in an emergency situation - I had just moved and didn't have a dentist and my brother-in-law recommended Dr. DeBonis. What made this exceptional is that the Dr. was willing to see me, a new patient, at 4:30pm on the day before Thanksgiving. I have been a dedicated patient ever since and recommend the Dr. to anyone and everyone.
Dr. DeBonis is not just a skilled dentist, but takes the time to explain - and draw pictures of - your dental situation. I appreciate this as it's clear that he cares that his patients understand this important part of their healthcare.
Best Friend Your Teeth Will Ever Have!!! – I have been cared for by Dr. Will DeBonis and his wonderful staff for nearly 20 years. From the first moment I came to see him (had a toothache at work and was referred by a friend), I was grateful for the care, kindness and professionalism with which I was treated.
Dr. DeBonis is one of the few doctors I've ever known who has repeatedly gone out of his way to help me, to put my needs first, and to ask me to be part of the process (whether it is about x-rays or root canal).
I was very happy with the initial work that was done, but what has kept me coming back (and I now live in New Jersey) is the consistency and kindness i have received throughout.
One incident that is telling happened early on: I had been sick and had to cancel my appointment. Not expecting to be out very long, I re-scheduled for the following week. When I got to his office that next week, we started to do the work (a filling). Dr. DeBonis noticed that I didn't seem very energetic. He asked if I was feeling okay. I said that I hadn't fully recovered but that I didn't want to cancel again, that I knew his time was valuable.
He immediately told me that it was more important for me to feel ready and fully well and that he'd be glad to have me come back the following week. I was relieved because i really hadn't been up for it; but I have rarely met a doctor who was so perceptive and who put my health and comfort clearly above his earnings.
Another telling incident was when my niece (who was about 9 years old at the time) was having problems with her teeth (stemming from when she was a baby). She was terrified of dentists and my sister had taken her to about 4 or 5 that "specialized" in working with kids. I went with them to the last one they tried and she was shaking in his chair. (I thought he was overly "sweet" and phoney myself; but I didn't want to interfere). My sister did NOT want to force her but she was at her wits end as my niece needed dental work badly.
I suggested Dr. DeBonis. The end result? They made an appointment to see him and she LOVED him almost immediately - and trusted him enough to do the work that no one else could have done without her going thru hell. (18 years later, she is still his patient.)
I have recommended Dr. DeBonis to many friends over the years. Not one has had a complaint.
I tell people "I love my dentist! He is the best and kindest doctor in the world!" I still feel that way...
Very Thorough and Professional Dentist – Dr. DeBonis took his time on the initial cleaning (he explained that he takes the time to evaluate every new patient and perform their cleaning) and helped identify problem areas with instructions on how to avoid those issues in the future. I found him to be very thorough and his staff was very professional. He was also very easygoing- which is a plus for someone who doesn't enjoy being at the dentist to begin with. I highly recommend him and I will be returning.
Fabulous dentist – I have been a patient since Dr. DeBonis opened his practice on 50th Street. The professionalism shown by each and every member of his staff is excellent. Needless to say, I think Dr. DeBonis is the best.
Caring Practice, Great Service – I've been coming here for a number of years and I am very happy with everyone at Worldwide Plaza Dental. I'm not sure I could find another practice that has that "small town feeling" here in NYC.
Prices are good, care is excellent and they are genuinely concerned about each and every patient, even beyond their teeth! I have recommended them to friends for a long time now.
Make an appointment. You will be happy you did.
I HIGHLY recommend Worldwide Plaza Dental! – I have been going to Worldwide Plaza Dental for many years, thanks to the wonderful expertise of services, and just as importantly, the quality of 'beside manner' I need to have to feel genuinely cared about it. My experience has been so positive, that my 7 year old and husband also go. I tend to be a hands on, inquisitive mom, so I value how WWPD has always answered my questions and concerns promptly and thoroughly. I'm also a professional actor, and want/need my teeth to look great. (I once had to have a chipped tooth fixed just prior to an audition...years later, tooth still looks great). I HIGHLY recommend WWPD!
