Review from Faye W. Source: | Yelp
A childhood before the advent of fluoridated water, consigned me to over fifty years of dental restorations; ordinary fillings, extractions, bonding, root canals and tip resections, braces, cosmetic gingivectomies, veneers etc.; hundreds of thousands of non-reimbursed dollars later, to hold on to my natural teeth. In my experiences with periodontists, Dr. Kissel  the most technically sophisticated and forward thinking. These days it's extremely difficult to find a medical office in which the caliber of the office staff aligns with  the practitioner. As is Dr, Kissel, his staff (esp Martina) is warm, efficient and supportive in getting through the diagnostics, dental plan, financial structure and scheduling  processes. I'm now in the midst of  bone grafts, two extractions and implant replacements. Aside from confidence that I will heal quickly and successfully, due to Dr. Kissel's low trauma microscopic technique, here is the BEST part: NO PAIN. 2+hr. initial minor discomfort procedure. Without qualification, he resides in the category of rare and exceptional. Thank you to another superb practitioner, Dr. Norman Boyd, for the blessing of leading me to Dr. Scott Kissel and his team.

Dr. Kissel is FANTASTIC! He is a great Periodontist, professional, cool, and stays current with medical care and surgical procedures. I have had two gum grafts performed, and trusted him implicitly. His follow up is disciplined and thorough, intent on the patient's total healing. The staff is totally in sync. Martina is welcoming and informative, and Carly is an A+ Hygenist for painless routine cleanings. Love this place. Thank you Dr. Kissel !

Review from Riva A. Source: | Yelp | 20170105
Dr. Scott Kissel is an amazing periodontist who recently did an implant for me the same day he pulled the tooth. It was not a simple procedure yet he never cut my gum or caused me pain. The healing process was also incredibly pain free and quick for the complexity of the procedure which was performed under a local anesthetic. He was also concerned about my comfort during the procedure and would ask me how I was doing which was much appreciated. Although is it not a cheap procedure he also provided a very reasonable payment plan which made it doable for me. I had also seen him a year earlier for another tooth which the dentist who referred me thought might need to be pulled. But Dr. Kissel carefully assessed the tooth and felt it could be saved and that an implant would not be necessary. He very much wants to save your tooth if possible and only does implants if they are necessary. So I feel very comfortable trusting his professional judgment about what needs to be done in a given situation. His office staff is also very helpful, kind and friendly which makes undergoing an expensive and sometimes difficult procedure much easier. I give him my highest recommendation.

Review from Lefty Source: | Dr. Oogle | 20101020
I had extensive bone grafting and bone regeneration work performed by Dr. Kissel and through all the anxiety Dr. Kissel and fear and loathing, Dr. Kissel performed magic, enabling me to essentially keep my teeth. His approach is very calming and his outlook is long term. I would recommend Dr. Kissel without hesitation to any one in need of saving their teeth. His microscopic technique is cutting edge and he takes great pride in his work, His paitience and steady hand and skill are to be commended. T. Rogers

Dr. Kissel is highly skilled, professional and personable. He explained the procedure to my satisfaction before doing any work. During the procedure, he kept me informed of what he was doing and checked on my level of comfort. I appreciate that the original bill included not only the cost of the procedure, but also the subsequent visits for removal of stitches and final check up. There were no additional costs.

Review from Carole K. Source: | Yelp | 20160708
At the advanced age of 84, I was somewhat reluctant to consider implants. I thought I'd be able to manage with out them. I needed three, and they were right next to my two front teeth! To my own surprise, even as an octogenarian I was vain enough to reconsider. One look at myself in the mirror in the morning said that I should succumb to the vanity. I did -- and I found the perfect implant specialist. Well-- I didn't find him by myself; he was recommended to me separately, first by my general dentist and then by periodontist. With two recommendations by two dentists whom I admire immensely, I went to see Dr. Scott Kissel. He suggested three implants,but I gulped when I heard the bottom line. He then found a brilliant way of creating a 21/2 tooth solution! And now the job is done -- and I couldn't be happier. There was no pain at all, everything was explained in detail, and I am delighted to be able to smile again. Maybe it even makes me look a few years younger.I think Dr. Scott Kissel is a dental genius. And I think Martina and the rest of the staff are unusually pleasant, helpful, and cooperative. Five stars for all.

Review from Emily M. Source: | Yelp | 20160608
My mouth is a MUCH happier and healthier place, thanks to Dr. Kissel! Knowing I had problems, found him online. Didn't even have an NYC dentist. But loved the mention of the "No Judgment Zone" on the website. I lucked into probably the best periodontal surgeon in the city! Not just laser, MICROSCOPIC laser technique, which sets him apart. The difference this precision makes cannot be overstated. Beyond his skill, Dr. Kissel was patient and kind, explained everything that needed to be done and answered all of my questions. Afterward, he checked up on me and was responsive when I reached out for some reassurance. Almost two years after my LANAP procedure, my probing measurements are all within normal range. Before, I had a few teeth with numbers as high as 7! And the fact that this was accomplished while making my smile look better is a bonus. Even though the expense was considerable, I feel it was money well-spent. Face it. You only get one set of gums... And other than Dr. Kissel himself?Everyone is friendly and professional. The office runs on or close to on-time, with a small, but nicely appointed waiting room. Martina at the front desk is uber efficient, but also truly helpful and has a sense of humor.:) And hygienist Carly is a rockstar! Not only excellent at her job i.e. thorough AND gentle, she's also sweet and easy to talk to, even when when you really can't.:) I would and have recommended Dr. Kissel to all of my friends and will continue to see him as long as I have teeth!:)

Review from CT P. Source: | Yelp | 20160608
Dr. Kissel is soft spoken and kind, tells you exactly what's going to happen, how much it's going to cost and what to expect. Always on time too. Excellent experience from top to bottom. Martina at the front desk is a priceless asset; competent, kind, patient, smart and professional. She is one of the best medical/dental staff I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The most important part, of course, is the work. I had lost a tooth after two unsuccessful root canals. My oral surgeon insisted I had to be put under general anesthesia for a bone graft with sinus lift, but I really wanted to find someone who would listen to me and not put me under. Dr. Kissel was recommended by my dentist and he immediately agreed that he could easily do the procedure under local anesthesia. He did the sinus lift and bone graft last year, it healed well, the bone is strong and the jaw is stable and then he placed an implant in my upper jaw. It was flawless, very little pain or discomfort during the procedures and I am thrilled with the results; my new tooth is in and I am using it just like a real tooth, can't feel the difference at all. I really cannot recommend Dr. Kissel enough.

Dr. Kissel is extremely thorough, competent, careful and caring. I had a dental implant and gum graft. Each procedure was done without pain and a great deal of attention to detail. Dr. Kissel really cares and works with you to reduce anxiety and pain. He calls after the procedure to make sure you are ok and to see if you have any questions. I will always use Dr.Kissel. His two assistants, Kemba and Jennie are very efficient and knowledgeable and pleasant to work with.Carly was very professional and thorough and interacted well with me and Dr. Kissel. Martina is a gem, always pleasant, courteous and knowledgeable.

Dr Kissel and his staff are very warm, friendly and intelligent. Their chair side assistant was lovely as was the radiologist. After the procedure, They even offered me a blanket during my first appointment because I was cold. Where do you ever hear of that? They put me at complete ease and explained the entire procedure. The office is spotless, warm and inviting. I would highly recommend them!

Love Dr. Kissel's office. After getting bad information from a number of different dentists about my periodontal health, I got fed up and went to see Dr. Kissel. He was very honest and straightforward about the state of my gums and teeth and I successfully received a deep cleaning on a few problem areas.

At the request of my dentist and on a moment's notice, Dr Kissel squeezed me in for a brief consultation.His knowledge was impressive, and he was excellent in communicating my options and totally honest in his expectations for correcting my issue. The most amazing aspect of my visit was that his fee was complimentary.

Dr. Kissel is superb. He has completed a number of procedures to restore my gums. Each time, the procedure was close to painless and there was very little discomfort afterwards. He is truly expert at pain management, better than any dentist. Most important, the results of the surgeries were excellent. My gums are now as good as new. I couldn’t be more pleased. And he has a wonderful patient manner. Very pleasant and yet very informative and responsive.

Review from B. Senko | 20160213
I had an implant done about 5 months ago and all I can say is that Dr Kissel is terrific. The procedure is painless (okay maybe the novocaine hurts a little but otherwise no pain) and I didn't need anything other than the NSAIDs after the procedure...I think having my braces tightened as a kid was way worse. If you are procedure phobic, he has a lot of options...but honestly -- really easy and I would go back to him in a second.

Review from Meckhart Source: | Dr. Oogle | 20160211
My teeth were deteriorating badly and I reached the point where I had to deal with it. But I only had one chance to do this right. So I researched periodontists and dentists and concluded that Dr. Kissel was the best, maybe in the world. Now, two years later, I am moving to a complete set of implants and teeth, after rebuilding my bone structures, recovering my gum health, and establishing a new smile and health. Dr. Kissel is the best of the best. He studies and keeps up with the newest methods. He is a doctor but also a scientist. Everything is leading edge, studied, careful and perfect. His surgical talents are very very impressive. His patient manner is kind and personal, which is very rare with a leading edge, scientific kind of doctor. He is a fine person and doctor - indeed, a very very special person and doctor. I am exceedingly pleased with the results, even thankful.

Review from Chloe O. Source: | Yelp | 20160129
Dr. Scott Kissel is a consummate physician. Over my last 45 years of dental issues, and meeting with many specialists (due to early childhood conditions), I was fortunately referred to Dr. Kissel by my best all-time generalist dentist. Dr. Kissel has executed amazing salvation on my gums -- excavating the disaster of an exploded root canal; grafts; treatment for lichen planus; and conservative recommendations. Consider that his microsurgery is cutting edge, as are his techniques -- I am convinced by the success in my progress but what is equally if not more important is that he is cited in cutting edge texts in dentistry and that means a lot to a scientist (like me). So let's digress! The staff. Excellent, led by Martina who is savvy, smart and sensitive. Kemba! Carly! They all listen, help, and are responsive. This is not an implant "factory" the likes of which passes for care these days. This is specialized, personalized healthcare -- so speak up before procedures and ask for the handouts to prepare. So, after 45 years of substantial issues, I state without equivocation that Dr. Kissel is the best periodontist I have experienced. Having experienced all kinds of staff, he is also discerning in a developed and sophisticated approach -- you can't be a great periodontist without a smart and supportive staff. So, I think...where will I retire? ...can I afford, in many ways, to lose this kind of healthcare and support?....Dr. Kissel is one of my major considerations. Honestly....

Review from Laura F. Source: | Yelp | 20151004
I was recommended to Dr. Kissel by my long term and most trusted dentist Dr. Robert Marder to set a post for an implant. From the very first moment of dealing with Dr. Kissel's office I was impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of his staff, especially Ms. Martina who deals with the administrative part of the establishment. On all my appointments I was taken in with a minimum waiting time. Dr. Kissel has a very warm and friendly manner which put me at ease. I received several injections of anesthesia which were dosed by a machine. The procedure itself turned out rather longer and more complicated than expected through no fault of Dr. Kissel. Nonetheless Dr. Kissel did not lose his composure and patiently  managed to set the post in the right place. During the whole procedure  and rather vigorous manipulation I didn't feel a bit of pain and the site healed wonderfully within a few days. No complications with the stitches either.  The office is very high-tech and clean. Despite my apprehension towards dentists I will entrust with no hesitation  any further periodontal issues to Dr. Kissel.

Review from Jordan K. | 20150901
I was in a terrible racquetball accident (I was hit in the mouth with a racquet). One tooth was knocked out entirely, and the root was cracked well above my gum line. Most of the tooth next to it (my incisor) was gone. Dr. Kissel repaired my mouth flawlessly. He reconstructed the jagged remains of my incisor, making it look just as good, if not better than it was before. He then performed surgery on the adjacent tooth, removed the broken root, and inserted a temporary tooth that blended seamlessly with the rest of my smile. The surgery was quick and totally painless. I didn't even experience the slightest discomfort in the days following the surgery. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Kissel!

Dr. Kissel is great. I'm a foreign expat living in New York and we have been really fortunate when recently our dentist recommended us Dr. Kissel for my wife's gum surgery and my two implants. Dr. Kissel is extremely professional, very meticulous and he truly cares about his patients. After doing my implants he even called me from his cell phone on Friday night to find out if I felt ok! Our experiences have been completely painless, and we feel that Dr. Kissel has everyhing under control. A special mention also for his assistants, very nice and efficient. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kissel to eveyone!

Anyone who has ever feared a visit to a periodontist should visit Dr. Scott Kissel for a completely positive experience! He is the best! I have undergone several complex procedures performed by Dr. Kissel, and I have never experienced pain, soreness or post-op discomfort. He has an extremely light touch, explains everything carefully and has a great sense of humor besides. His staff of Martin and Kimba are superb and efficient and make the visit a more pleasurable experience than I ever imagined. If you have to visit a periodontist (and let's face it; no one really WANTS to) this is a great destination all around.

Short story: one of the two best "dentists" I've ever gone to. And the other "best dentist" (my current "normal" dentist) referred me to Dr. Kissel. Long story: Dr. Kissel himself is extremely professional, efficient, kind, patient, and thoroughly explains exactly what the procedure entails without being longwinded about it. The procedure I had was relatively fast and painless (I'm a 35 year old guy, had two microscope skin grafts, one on a lower front tooth, and one on my rear-most upper tooth), and my recovery was also painless and free of complication (I had to take care of my mouth with special brushes and not eat certain kinds of food for a bit, but it was fine). I'm very happy with the results & after three months I'm basically back to normal. Besides Dr. Kissel and the procedure, the office staff is also wonderful, super friendly while being quick and to the point. Couldn't recommend Dr. Kissel & his office more.

I had skin graft from upper palate to receding gums and had discomfort but no pain. The cost was higher than what I had been quoted elsewhere but went to Dr. Kissel because of recommendation which was excellent. I dont have insurance. He and his office were exemplary and I could not be happier with the process, procedure and interaction with entire staff. Cant imagine going anywhere else for periodontal surgical needs.

I think Scott Kissel is an outstanding Periodontist who is highly skilled in state of the art surgery. He removed a dying tooth for me prior to setting in an implant, and I was astonished that there was no pain at all after the surgery, because he carefully took the time to grind down the decayed tooth and use gentle suction to remove the pieces instead of trying to wrench out the whole tooth at once. My gum was left intact with less damage, and I am very grateful. Thank you. Martina who runs the front desk is knowledgeable and lovely.

Fabulous. Dr. Kissel recently performed the second gum graft I've had and if I ever need more, I'll track him to the ends of the earth to do the procedure. The difference in experience between Kissel's work and my previous graft was like day and night. It was an entirely painless experience. He and his assistant have clearly worked together for many years; they had a real mind-meld thing going on. The work healed quickly and cleanly and now a month later it's feels like I've always had this incredibly healthy gum line. I really can't recommend him highly enough.

When I was told I needed a gum graft  I was prepared for pain and a difficult recovery so it was to my surprise that the procedure was completely  painless, I required no pain killers and was able to return to work the next day.  The recovery has been quite easy as well.  I truly believe that Dr. Kissel's knowledge, expertise and use of a microscope throughout the surgery made all the difference and I would highly recommend that anyone who needs a good periodontist look no further.

Fantastic doctor and a very nice man. Nearly painless surgery with just local anesthetic. Outcome exceeded my expectations. Improved gum tissue between teeth, which was more than I thought he would be able to do. Prices are reasonable for his level of expertise (and the fact that it's NYC). You won't find someone better at microsurgery for the gums and other periodontal work. I can't say a single thing about him that I didn't like or that wasn't at or above my expectation. Even his office manager Martina is great. All around an A+ operation. Great results. I will definitely be back if and when I need further work on my gums.

Dr, Kissel is a genius! He did 18(all successful) implants in my mouth . I had consultations with several periodontists because the work I needed was extensive and I wanted reliable work. I trusted him from the get-go and have no regrets. He is reassuring in his manner, extremely meticulous in his work, and truly cares about his patients. His staff is polite knowledgeable and competent. The facilities are clean, and everyone is helpful .This is the ONLY periodontist I would use, or recommend . Kimbra- his assistant is wonderful.

My first impression of Dr. kissel's office was that it was clean , modern and professional. The receptionist, Martina was helpful and kind. I was ,though apprehensive about having a dental implant. My fears were not justified. The microsurgical technique that Doctor Kissel practices along with superb pain management and his complete attention to the process made the whole procedure seem simple and painless at least from my point of view. I was so relieved. Everything was carefully explained beforehand and during the process. I was asked frequently if I was comfortable. I never had any pain. The implant was fully successful. What a relief. I am very happy that Dr.Kissel was recommended to me. I would be happy to recommend Dr. Kissel to others who need an implant. Dr. Kissel was present and attentive and has a sense of humor. I left the office without a big gap in my smile. I was amazed that it all happened in one morning appointment...and very grateful. Not scared anymore.

I would recommend Dr Kissel without reservation.  He did a phenomenal job on my gums.  I had 4 crowns that did not fit properly on the top front teeth and because of that I had  extremely inflamed gums.  So much so that they would bleed at any given time.  Dr Kissel healed by gums and provided me with a a brand new smile. His staff are very pleasant and I would not go anywhere else in NYC other than his office.  Thanks Dr Kissel for all that you have done.

Incredible. I could not be any more impressed by the knowledge, expertise, and attention of Dr. Kissel. My tooth removal and implant was a total success. I was so nervous, but he was honest when he said his techniques would involve no pain and be minimally invasive. I could not be any more confident (100%) in recommending him for any periodontal work. I rate him 5 stars, without reservation.

Review from Jodi Source: | Dr. Oogle | 20130708
I was referred to Dr. Kissel by my dentist for an implant for a broken tooth. At the initial consultation full details of the procedure were provided to me in a concise, easy-to-understand manner and billing options were presented. My procedure was five hours to extract the tooth, clean out area, put in implant and bone graft, size and create a retainer crown, and a tissue graft to fix a high gumline. Dr. Kissel was even able to match perfectly my tooth color. At no time did I feel any pain. I was given breaks throughout the procedure and was told what was happening at each step. I admit I was nervous going in but the atmosphere (jazz music in the background) and the pleasant demeanor of the staff, as well as Dr. Kissel's patient and soothing nature, put me at ease. In total I only took two doses of Tylenol after the procedure and none of the pain medication that was prescribed. I used the oral rinse to keep the area clean and vitamins suggested for bone growth and have had no ill effects. I have gone back for three follow up appointments to remove stitches and check site. For anyone who has to go through this type of complicated procedure, I can't imagine a better experience than what I had with Dr. Kissel.

My dentist referred me to Dr. Kissel for a graft and I am 100% pleased with the office/staff, Dr. Kissel's thorough approach to diagnosis and the procedure itself (as well as the follow-up). It was my first graft, so I can't compare to earlier procedures. That said, it was so completely painless and the healing proceeded quite easily. I really liked that Dr. Kissel uses micro-surgery technology and is also very interested in the healing progression.

best periodontist in NYC. And if you need to have an implant and its a front tooth, look no further. He's one of handful of special surgeons that perform microsurgery. I had no incisions and super fast healing time after the extraction. And I left with a temporary tooth that was screwed onto the implanted post so its pretty sturdy (though do have to take care to eat soft foods while the bone graft takes hold). Highly recommend.

Dr. Kissel is the best!  After experiencing a painful gum graft surgery (with another doctor) that failed I had to find a new doctor.  I feel blessed to have found Dr. Kissel.  He performed a successful gum graft surgery for me which was painless and I was able to return to work that very day.  He is extremely gentle and comforting.  His skills and techniques are fantastic and I recommend him without reservation.

I don't think I would be exaggerating by saying Dr. Kissel is a master! I was extremely apprehensive about getting gum graft surgery because I previously had gum graft surgery with another doctor, which was very painful and failed. My experience with Dr. Kissel was the polar opposite. With Dr. Kissel I experienced absolutely no discomfort, didn't need any type of pain killer, was able to return to work that very day and the gum graft was a success! Dr. Kissel is very comforting and gentle. His skills and techniques are fantastic. I recommend him without reservation.

Dr Kisssel and his staff were able to restore my teeth to a state of health that i thought was impossible. My front teeth had been damaged when I was a child and after some bad dental care in my teens, I ended up with a serious loss of bone from my gums. They were able to restore my gums with bone grafts, and sucessfully place implants which feel stronger and healthier than my original teeth did. I feel that people with poeple with gum health and cosmetic issues that they may feel hopeless about should know that there are solutions at the hands of this expert and caring proffessional.

Dr. Kissel worked on a complicated sinus lift and bone implant on my gum a few weeks ago.I felt NO PAIN during the surgery , and miraculously, no pain after, either.Did not even have to take to Tylenol... It healed really well and fast (I had expected weeks of discomfort), so I can't recommend Dr.Kissel enough. He did a very careful job, explained all the details before and after, and has a very delicate touch., unlike other periodontists I have encountered.

Review from T M. Source: | Yelp | 20120716
Let me start by saying that Dr. Kissel is extraordinary in the quality, kindness and the professional skills he provides his patients. His use of the newest procedures/techniques and his continual interest with new procedures/technology is evident by his knowledge that transcends other periodontists. I decided implants were the way to go. However, I first needed extensive bone grafting to multiple areas. There was really no pain to speak of during or after the procedures.  I was given clear instructions for the care of the surgical areas and everything went as predicted by Dr. Kissel. The several implants that were done had the same positive results. An important aspect is that on the day of the implants Dr. Kissel puts in place an aesthetic temporary crown so you leave his office with your smile intact. Dr. Kissel explains every part of the procedure to be done and the expected outcome. He is very sympathetic and clearly understands what his patient is going through. The sterile environment of the surgical room and the care that is given to provide the safest surrounding for his patients is impressive. I now have my permanent crowns in and they feel like my own teeth. I am glad I made the decision to do implants and would do more if needed. His staff is outstanding.  From the moment you enter his office you are greeted by Martina (keeps the office running smoothly), who is friendly, very caring, efficient and knowledgeable. She is interested in the patient's welfare, and needs. Provides a comfortable atmosphere for the patient. Kemba, Dr. Kissel's assistant, exhibits professionalism, knowledge of the procedures and works skillfully and smoothly with the doctor, making the patient comfortable and at ease. Miriam, the Hygienist, recognizes potential problem areas and gives useful cleaning techniques. She is friendly, caring and gentle, making teeth cleaning pleasant. I would recommend Dr. Kissel for any periodontal-implant procedures that you may be considering. He will give you an honest evaluation. A SKILLED PERIODONTIST WITH A GREAT SUPPORTIVE TEAM.

It's like I have a whole new mouth! I had bleeding gums for over a year. My regular dentist couldn't do anything for me. Multiple cleanings and prescription mouth wash from my regular dentist did nothing. A friend referred me to Dr. Kissel. He was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, kind, and thorough. He cleaned my teeth so well, it's like I have a brand new mouth. My gums have healed and reattached where they were supposed to be and my gums have not bled once since I saw him, no matter how hard I brush or floss. I cannot recommend him highly enough. There's no reason to see any one else!

I had a tooth removed, bone implanted, scraping( infection), self dissolving stitches. Lower molar . The doctor is very good. I had no pain during the procedure and did not have to take the pain meds after. Only took two Aleves. I previoulsly had two other implants done at another dentist but this new procedure is much better. My face was not swollen or bruised. Dr Kissel used new techniques and is on the cutting edge. Next month he will insert the implant as the bone will be ready. I highly recommend him.

Review from Patient
From the very first meeting with Dr. Kissel, I knew that I had found the right expert to do my periodontal work. Dr. Kissel was already familiar with my mouth/teeth/gums even before our first meeting. It was evident that he had studied my xrays and files at length before my initial consultation; at that time he examined my mouth for a significant period of time and spent alot of time just thinking and considering the different ways that the work could be approached. He is gentle and has a wonderful sense of humor – which greatly helped me relax. I spent 5 hours in the chair having tissue taken from my palette and grafted onto my gums – the only painful part was that my back started to ache ! My healing time was good, especially considering how much work was done. No one would ever even know that I have had surgery – the result is perfect! I would recommend Dr. Kissel without reservation..

I recommend Dr. Kissel without reservations. He is personally extremely pleasant, his office staff is great, and the office is attractive. More important, however, he is a very experienced and proficient periodontist. He performed a gum transplant on one of my teeth, and it was both pain free and a total success. He gave me very clear directions for the post-transplant period and he called that evening to ensure that I was OK and had no questions. He then saw me again in the office at periodic intervals to check on the transplant.

I wish I'd met Dr. Kissel years ago, when I started the whole implant process. As a periodontist and as a person, he has exceeded my expectations in every possible way. He successfully (and painlessly!) replaced a broken bridge implant and another implant that had slipped too low in the jaw---fixing another doctor's mistake that I thought couldn't be fixed. Before he started on the complicated procedure, he sent me for an MRI just to make sure that one of the problem implants wasn't touching a nerve, a diagnostic step no other doctor I consulted recommended. He's very honest, very careful, and very caring, and I trust him completely. The office has all the latest state-of-the-art equipment. From Martina, the receptionist, to the dental technicians, everyone is warm, friendly, and calm, which makes each visit actually a pleasure.

Dr Kissel has been wonderful throughout two difficult bonegraft surgeries. He attempted to save a tooth by performing an apicoectomy and was clear about the unpredictability of the operation because of the level of bone infection existing. He performed s second operation which involved removing infected bone and bone graft along with the tooth. He carefully performed a gum graft to cover the gaping whole and was overseeer for the interim appliance. Recently he performed the implant procedure and carefully and meticulously was able to attach a temporary tooth to the implant. His office staff is fabulous - friendly and supportive. I totally recommend him for any periodontal surgery

Dr. Kissel's performance on my gum repair surgery far exceeded my expectations.  I went into the procedure prepared for it to be painful and to leave me uncomfortable for some time.  As it turned out, I had no significant pain during, immediately after the procedure or at any time.  Beyond the slight pinch of the needle and a raw spot equivalent to a mild pizza burn, I felt no pain.  I never bothered to fill the prescription for pain killers and was easily able to go about my business as usual immediately upon leaving the office. The results were incredible and should help me to hold on to these teeth for the rest of my life.  The change is  clearly visible especially when comparing before and after photos.

Long standing dental problems left me at risk of losing a front tooth. My general dentist, Dr. John Wolf (whom I highly recommend, too!), referred me to Dr. Kissel for a complicated implant procedure. From the first visit to Dr. Kissel's practice, I was confident I was in good hands. There was some urgency to the procedure, and Dr. Kissel accommodated me immediately. He was genuinely concerned about saving my tooth and limiting any additional problems. As a veteran of numerous implants and extensive periodontal surgery, I expected some discomfort, but much to my surprise, the post-surgical pain was minimal, and my face NEVER swelled! Though these procedures can be lengthy, Dr. Kissel and his staff made sure I was comfortable throughout. In the six months since my surgery, Dr. Kissel has monitored my healing and just gave me the "thumbs-up" to return to Dr. Wolf for the implant crown. I am EXTREMELY satisfied with the treatment I received, with Dr. Kissel's professionalism and expertise, and would not hesitate to recommend him and his wonderful staff!

Dr. Kissel performed a difficult surgery to close an opening in a tooth root caused by a rare conditon known as "root re-absorbtion". He used a microscope throughout the long procedure, which was made as pleasant as possible and was pain free. The operation was a success, and Dr. Kissel followed up carefully with necessary checkups. Dr. Kissel is professional and efficient, but also friendly, and understanding as a person. He operates with an extremely light touch and does not give up easily when confronted with a surgical challenge. The office and medical staff is polite and afffable.

I came to Dr. Kissel after two implants failed. He was clearly a generation or two advanced beyond my prior "expert" 5th Avenue periodontis who had photos of TV celebrity clients hanging all over the place. Dr. Kissel instead was focused on the person in front of him. I received procedures that the others did not know existed which will save me from lingering unknowns that could easily have caused severe nerve damage one day. Now the new implants had their final road test and are ready for anything. I am very pleased and agree with the praise found in the other testimonials.

Dr. Kissel is an extraordinary periodontist.  I arrived in his office on the brink of surgery in at least four different areas of my gums.  Instead, Dr. Kissel did a deep scaling, using an innovative technique that only a handful of periodontists in the US currently employ.  The result was that my gums healed, and I avoided surgery.  The entire procedure, from the injections of anesthesia through the final stages of the deep cleaning, was painless! I admire Dr. Kissel’s outstanding skills and expertise. He is genuinely committed to finding new and better ways of helping his patients.  If you need periodontal work, RUN to Dr. Kissel’s office.  (P. S.

I was sent to Dr Kissel by my dentist with a deep pocket that resulted in bone loss due to chemo. I ahd been told by one periodontist and 2 dentists that I would require bone grafting. Dr Kissel helped me avoid this by microscopic cleaning of the site, adjusting my bite, and teaching me to aggressivly clean plaque from my gums and teeth with proper flossing. Yes i knew to floss but he gave me much more effective practices! He is nice and his staff is very accomodating.

Dr.Scott Kissel completed two gum graft procedures on me. These operations are usually quite painful as tissue is harvested from the roof of the mouth and then sewn onto the gum thus producing two wounds. My dentist told me that having Scott Kissel complete the operation would be completely different and it was. The pain level was very low. More importantly, the results are fantastic. The gum line has been completely restored. I am a return client and take it from me, he is the best.

He has state of the art equipment. It was practically painless -- just felt pressure as he cleaned it out. His manner is gentle and humorous.

i had my gums grafted over both of my canine teeth and was warned by others that it would be really painful. dr. kissel is a magic man-i never felt any pain...not during, not after, not when he called that night to check on me, not for any of the time that the stitches were in. i only got the surgery two weeks ago and i have already recommended him to anyone who hears my story and say they have to get that done, too. thank you, thank you!

Without a doubt, unquestionably, and look no further, it's Dr. Scott Kissel that you want for your periodontal needs.  Having never gone to a periodontist, I was nervous and uncertain what to expect. Dr. Kissel happily answered all my questions and clearly explained the surgery that I would be having called Crown Lengthening --- and then with his expertise, knowledge, stellar skills, and use of the latest advanced periodontal/dental "doctoring" techniques, I relaxed for my surgery and felt NO pain!   A few hours later at home, it was so welcoming to receive a caring call from Dr. Kissel to see how I was doing. To Dr. Scott Kissel, Kemba (who assisted Dr. Kissel during my surgery), and to Martina, the doctor's able front desk administrator, thank you for making my surgery and recovery so easy.

Review from DG Source: | Dr. Oogle | 20101115
Having lived with a baby tooth -- in the front of my mouth -- for 72+ years, it was somewhat traumatic to have it surgically removed to allow for an implant. Dr. Kissel performed the surgery, using a microscope to facilitate the process. He kept me informed throughout the procedure as to what was happening. I felt no pain during or after the procedure. The area operated on healed within the shortest prescribed time and the implant was completed without any complications. I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Kissel as a skilled and caring surgeon. The members of his staff whom I met --Martina at the front desk, and Kemba who assisted during the surgery -- were efficient and most pleasant to deal with.

All I can say is that if you have to get a periodontal procedure done, Dr. Kissell would be the guy to see. I was told by my dentist that I had a couple of teeth with receding gums that should be looked at by a periodontist. She recommended Dr. Kissell, because he was a reputable micro-surgeon. Evidently micro-surgery has a quicker recovery time and higher success rate. And I was told Dr. Kissell is one of the top periodontists doing micro-surgery--he even perfected some of his own specialized tools. (I have a friend who had the same gum surgery without a micro-surgeon and the gum graft didn't take.) So going to Dr. Kissell seemed like a no-brainer. I walked into his office and was greeted by a very together receptionist named Martina. Then I met Dr. Kissell and he did his examination and confirmed that I did indeed need to take care of the teeth with receding gums via gum grafting. He took his time with me and used plastic tooth models to thoroughly explain, and show me why I needed to have this surgery. I made an appointment for the surgery, Martina, gave me printouts of everything I needed to know pre and post-op. A few days later before the surgery, I had some additional questions about recovery time and Martina was available to answer whatever I needed to know. To make a long story a little shorter, my gum surgery was a great success, I healed incredibly fast, Dr. Kissell was such a skilled professional, and had such a nice demeanor, I would highly recommend him to anyone having work like this done. His entire office seems very well run and organized...which is one less thing to contend with when having oral surgery!

Dear Dr. Kissel, I wanted to offer my testimonial about the excellent care I received through Dr. Kissel's practice.  I was referred to him by Dr. T. M, who has been my dentists over the past twenty years. Dr. M said, "Kissel is the best in the business," and he was right.  I needed a microsurgical procedure, which was recommended immediately during an initial evaluation. I needed tissue grafting. Sadly, I put the procedure off for several months out of fear. I regret that and hope that this letter will help dissuade others from doing the same. From start to finish, the way that Dr. Kissel's staff and he, himself, dealt with the procedure was flawless.  The surgery itself was not painful at all. In addition, although I expected pain after the procedure, there was none. I would highly recommend Dr. Scott Kissel for anyone needing periodontal work. I would be delighted to speak with anyone considering having him do their surgery and grafting. He is a true expert. In closing, if you need periodontal care, my advice is don't walk, -  run to his office, now.

I had periodonture surgery on the upper front teeth with two implants so far. I am on my third implant. Treatment success is excellent so far. There was no pain associated with these procedures. The facilities are modern, extremely sanitary, and very comfortable. The office manager is most accommodating when it comes to insurance and payment. The office staff is friendly and you are made to feel comfortable in a stressful situation. I would highly recommend Dr. Kissel and his staff.

One usually does not associate major periodontal surgeries as routine but my experience under the care of Dr. Scott Kissel was just that. Of course when I was originally told my bad tooth would require a major dental procedures extending over months, I could only imagine a future of endless oral excruciations. With trepidation I entered the Doctor's office after he had graciously agreed to see me at the behest of my dentist for immediate treatment. After patiently explaining the requirements of the restoration involving extraction, bone graphing, and post/cap insertion, he set to work. When the Doctor administered Novocain with innocuous pin pricks guided by a computer that maximized enervation with minimal discomfort, I knew this office was state of the art.  As the operation proceeded, I never once felt the slightest pain as the doctor meticulously removed the bad tooth. It was as if I was listening to someone else's tooth removal on the radio as the Doctor explained each step of the operation. Before I knew it, the graphing material was in place and the gum had been sewn. I was amazed that a surgical operation had been rendered the equivalent of a teeth cleaning. Although the next step months later required the introduction of a post into the graphed bone, I was not worried as I now knew a deft touch would be handling the insertion. I was not disappointed. The operation was performed seamlessly and the placement of the post inserted in a less invasive manner than the usual procedure employed by fellow surgeons.  Now a year later, one last examination to ensure  the  post is ready for its crown, and I know that like a good house, this crown will sit on a solid foundation.

I have been always nervous about periodontal procedures. When I went to see Dr. Scott Kissel he assured me that this crown lengthening procedure wouldn't hurt, and, at first I was very scared. But he was right! It was completely painless. I cant deny I was terrified of going, but once there, his office staff and he were very pleasant and comforting, during and after the procedure I was very comfortable and I am pleased with the results. Hey! he was able to save my tooth. Thank you Dr. Kissel

Dr. Kissel is superb. He has completed a number of procedures to restore my gums. Each time, the procedure was close to painless and there was very little discomfort afterwards. He is truly expert at pain management, better than any dentist. Most important, the results of the surgeries were excellent. My gums are now as good as new. I couldn't be more pleased. And he has a wonderful patient manner. Very pleasant and yet very informative and responsive.

Dr. Kiissel had to do two emergency tooth implants three years ago. My dentist is a few floors above his office. He dropped what he was doing and wound up spending almost 7 hours with me doing these impllants and extrctions. I recenly had another implant done by Dr. Kissel. Aside from having an excellent bedside manner, he is extremely gentle and absolutely pain free.... He is one of the few doctors using a microscopic procedure to do these implants. I would not hesitate recommending anyone to Dr. Kissle. He is a delight.

This time he performed the work microscopically and there was only minimal discomfort, and healing was speedy. He did a great job, and is also a very pleasant Doctor to deal with, as his staff.Though I hope I don't have to-he's the guy I'll call if I ever need a super periodontist.

I have had periodontal problems for many years and have never had a good experience going to the dentist. When my dentist referred me to Dr. Kissel for surgery I was very nervous. On my first visit I was greeted by Martina who was very friendly and I immediately felt at ease. On the day of surgery I was seen promptly. Dr K explained what he was doing and was asking how I was doing during the procedure. He even called me later that evening to check on me! His assistant Kemba is very skilled and really works well with the doctor. Dr K used a microscope during the surgery and after it was completed I felt totally fine. If it were not for the few stiches I would forget I even had surgery. I have referred many friends,family and co-workers to him and no one has been disappointed. I come in every couple of months for a cleaning and I can honestly say I look forward to the visits. Miriam his hygienist is very good. She is very gentle but thorough, she never hurts me ( I have a lot of sensitive spots ). So if you ever have to go through any sort of periodontal care Dr Kissels office is the place to go. It is a very effecient, caring, professional office. I have never had as good an experience in any other medical or dental facility.

Dear Dr. Kissel, I never, ever thought I would be writing to tell you that getting implants under your care was one of the easiest and least complicated procedures I could imagine. I came to your office with concern and trepidation, and left smiling, with no pain, no swelling and no recovery time. Even with one of the implants requiring a substantial sinus lift and quite a few hours in your chair, the next day I was completely pain free and there was not even a trace of swelling. I don't know how you do what you do, but it must either be magic, or more likely, your exquisite training and diligent research that allowed at least this patient to think that getting an implant is truly no big deal. I thank you for your talent and your good care. Best, Robin J.

Dr. Kissel expertly guided a 2 year project beginning with two extractions, bone grafting, followed by three implants,with additional bone grafting and finally gum trimming on both upper and lower jaws. It was done perfectly and I was able to return to work and had very little interruption in my life following each procedure. My teeth look beautiful and most importantly are healthy and function as they should. My implants were challenging as I did not have adequate bone to support them - all of which was addressed by Dr. Kissel.

I had part of my palate grafted to my gums because of receding gums. Dr. Kissel's skills & technique are amazing & likely unparalleled. The surgery and recovery were completely, 100% pain-free. He uses special techniques so that even administering the novacaine was painless. The post-op discomfort was mild & totally tolerable, still much less than I expected. The results are phenomenal: no one knows it's a graft; the problem was completely solved; and at follow-up with my dentist, he & his staff complimented the results & were equally impressed. Friends & acquaintances who have had the same surgery from other doctors experienced pain & the results look like grafts. I'm still amazed I had no pain & the results look like regular, normal, healthy gums. Dr. Kissel is a great periodontist. His staff are friendly, skilled, and helpful professionals. The office is calming and has lovely urban views :) - a great place to be stuck in a chair for a few hours! But you really couldn't ask to be with better people throughout the entire process: consultation, surgery, & follow-up.

The moment I walked into Dr. Kissel's office I felt I was in good hands. From our first greeting, Martina the receptionist, made me feel very relax and calm. My tooth had fractured and I was sent to Dr Kissel for a sinus lift and implants. Dr Kissel was very reassuring that my experience would be successful and with minimal discomfort. Using some type of microscope Dr Kissel was able to successfully pull out all the pieces of the tooth without damaging the sinus. He then continued to place two implants , bone and a sinus lift. Kemba, his assistant, did an excellent job of keeping everything clean and worked well with Dr Kissel as a team. That night I had no pain, very little swelling and the next night I went for dinner with my friends. I would recommend Dr Kissel, he is THE FINEST periodontist I ever used.

Kissel is not your ordinary periodontist. He one of very few doctors in the U.S. who use a highly refined microscopic technique that is not only much less invasive, but also far faster and easier in healing and recovery. I was able to return to work the same day and experienced none of the discomfort that accompanied a prior surgery with another well-regarded New York periodontist. Kissel is great with patients and has a very organized and efficient office. There was never any waiting and the post-surgery follow up was excellent. I can't recommend periodontic surgery for fun, but if you need it, Dr. Kissel should be your choice.

I had the best experience under Dr. Kissels care. I had an amalgam tattoo (black stain) removed from my front gum and received a bone and tooth implant. I received several not so promising opinions from other doctors before I found Dr. Kissel. He explained everything to me in detail, giving me the confidence and assurance I needed to go ahead with the procedures. I didnt experience any pain during or after my surgeries. Before meeting Dr. Kissel, I would smile without showing my teeth, if I smiled at all. Now after getting my custom temporary tooth made by him (I still need to get the permanent tooth) I cant stop smiling ear to ear. Its amazing how the simple act of smiling without feeling self-conscious can be so liberating - it doesnt get much better than that for me! Thank you Dr. Kissel!

I came to Dr. Kissel after giving up hope of ever repairing the noticeable tissue loss above my front tooth. In fact, prior to seeing Dr. Kissel I visited several specialists and spent thousands of dollars over five years in gum replacement and other treatments, including laser treatment all to no avail. I was very self conscious about smiling and developed habits to distract people from looking at my teeth. My smile was very upsetting to me and over time it affected my self esteem. Thanks to Dr. Kissel's research, creativity and patience he was able to alter the implant, install an unconventional temporary cap and with surgery he was able to repair the gum loss. My treatment is not complete but I can't stop smiling.

My wife and I were referred to Dr Kissell when we both needed extractions and implants. My wife is a physician and has very high standards personally and professionally. She has always said Dr. Kissel has 'magic' hands because of his skill and effectiveness. He manages to do such fine and efficient surgery that the results are painless and exquisite. He has such good humor and is so concerned with your care that his modesty belies his excellence. I was just happy to find out there was a place to share my experience and offer some praise for his excellence.

Two weeks ago, I saw Dr. Kissel for the first time after my dentist referred me to him for an evaluation of my gums. One week ago, Dr. Kissel performed a gum graft on my lower jaw. If it were not for the fact that my tongue could detect some very tiny sutures in my mouth, I would never have known that periodontal surgery was performed on me. At no time during the surgery or since the surgery did I experience any discomfort whatsoever. I've had haircuts that were more painful and traumatic than my gum graft! Dr. Kissel has an extremely warm personality, is very reassuring, thorough in the explanation of his treatments and the treatments themselves, and he is quite obviously one of the most--if not THE most--gifted and talented periodontists his profession has seen. Dr. Kissel's star qualities are mirrored in his kind and gracious staff. His office manager Martina is super-efficient and charming, and his assistant Kimba is delightful and knows her work well. I just left Dr. Kissel's office after a brief follow-up visit and before heading back to my office made a quick detour to my dentist's office to thank him for recommending Dr. Kissel to me. It is BY FAR and without question the best medical experience I have ever had.

I have worked with Dr. Kissel for 4 years during which time he has performed major periodontal work on my mouth. I have never liked going to the dentist, so I was quite nervous about having gum replacement surgery (I had extensive damage to my gums). But I can't say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Kissel and his team. First of all, Dr. Kissel is a perfectionist. The work he did on my mouth was superb and I am very happy with the results. He also provides excellent patient care. Every time I have a procedure, I get a call from Dr. Kissel that evening to make sure that I am comfortable and I don't have questions or concerns. He genuinely cares about his patients and it shows in the work he does. Anyone who has had major dental work knows that it's often a long, drawn out battle with one's insurance company. Dr. Kissel wrote letters to my insurance co. detailing my procedures to insure that I received the maximum benefit. Normally I would have to chase down a doctor to make sure this was done, but Martina, Dr. Kissel's office manager, is prompt and efficient. She keeps the office running smoothly and she stayed on top of my insurance company. Thank you Dr. Kissel and team!!

Dr. Kissel did a remarkable job of saving my tooth from extraction. My regular dentist was convinced that I would lose the tooth and would need a dental implant but Dr. Kissel was able to save my tooth and prepare it for use in a bridge. My regular dentist pronounced the work "awesome". In addition to the quality of the work, Dr. Kissel displayed a sincere investment in helping me and a concern, particularly during the procedure, about how I was tolerating the procedure. Although I did undergo oral surgery, I had no subsequent pain and no subsequent problem with the work done. I asked Dr. Kissel for a "miracle" and got it.

I found Dr Kissel online after having two failed tissue grafts performed by another periodontist. Dr Kissel was able to reconstruct the damaged area beautifully. If he could fix that mess- I think he can do almost anything. I then had another set of grafts done. His techniques produce great results with the absolute minimum of discomfort. Martina, the office manager, is also fantastic- she runs a well organized office and handled all the insurance submissions. For tissue grafts I would not go elsewhere. I think the costs are comparable to other periodontists.

I have always had a fear of visiting a dentist eventhough there were never any problems. Having sensitive gums always made a simple cleaning very painful. The thought of having to experience tissue grafting was quite scary for me. During my visit with Dr. Kissel, only one small area was grafted. I never experienced any pain or discomfort. When I was told that I needed to come back for additional grafting to correct a much larger area than the first, I was actually looking foward to making any improvements that Dr. Kissel felt necessary. Today I am still amazed that I did not experience any pain or discomfort from each of the two visits.

In 1992, I was involved in a traumatic car accident where I lost all my teeth due to breaking the steering wheel with my jaw & luckily that DDS was able to surgically reimplant all my teeth! 15 years later, my 4 bottom front teeth began to turn hollow & pink. My teeth had necrosed from nursing my son & I needed to do something fast. My dentist referred me to Dr. Kissel & I thought he was wonderful! He explained everything to me & he was very honest about best/worse case scenerio & cost. I had to decide if I was to remove 2 teeth or all 4 bottom teeth & do implants or a bridge. After weeks of struggling, I decided to remove 2 teeth & root canal the other 2 teeth. I decided on the implants because all the doctors felt I would get the best long term results with them. After several surgeries to remove the teeth, rebuild new bone in my jaw, place the implants & finally have crowns put on...I couldn't be happier that I went with the implants! Although expensive, it was so worth it! It feels just like my real teeth, especially since I can floss them & I can eat apples & corn again after 15 years! I think Dr. Kissel is wonderfully talented & really performs miracles. I am grateful that I found him!

From top to bottom my experience with Dr. Kissel was excellent. My general dentist said that I needed an implant for my top front tooth, a highly aesthetic region, and he recommended Dr. Kissel. I was told he was an "artist," and I couldn't agree more. The receptionist (Martina) is the first smile you see, and she masters the balance of being professional and personable. She made sure I knew what was going on as far as my insurance goes, and was totally cooperative even when my insurance company wasn't! She knows me by name and is a comforting presence every time I go there. The real beauty of this company, though, is the man himself, Dr. Scott Kissel. He is one of those rare dentists who can tell you what's wrong and how he's going to fix it in a way that you can understand. Add to that the fact that he is so incredibly nice! On the rare occasion I felt pain, I almost felt guilty for wincing because I knew he had only the best intentions. In the end, my implant looks flawless. The alignment is spot on, and my gum line looks completely natural. He spent the time to make sure everything was perfect, and now I can live my life knowing I still have my great smile. Thank you, Dr. Kissel!
