I have had dental issues my entire life and no one could get to the bottom of the problem. I was constantly having cavities, and at 30 years old felt like I had the teeth of someone much older. It wasn't until I moved to the city and was told by my father I needed to see his Dentist ASAP! Dr Daniel Wank made time for me to come in with my father and we immediatly realized the issue. My gums were in horrible shape and that was the "root" of the issue. Once we took care of my gums with a simple in house minor surgery, the main problem I was having was the fact that my gums bleed terrible. this stopped. The we fixed the teeth and the doctor was able to save every one. NO extractions needed so that meant I was able to fix all my damaged teeth without the cost and time of getting an implant. After the great work he did, despite the horrible work done by my previous dentist I stayed with Dr Wank and did invisilign with him which came out great and then we decided to whiten my teeth. I can finally say I have my smile back.. Thanks Dr Wank and Fara. I am so happy.... You are so careing and wonderful I cant wait for my next cleaning.

Dr. Wank was the most kind and professional dentist I have ever seen. He took time to sit with me and answer any questions or concerns that came about. He truly cares about his patients and that was shown from the moment I walked into the office. I booked an appointment with him because I wanted to ask his opinion on a treatment I was looking into doing with another practice that was VERY expensive. He explained to me that my gums and teeth looked beautiful and that he would be happy to answer any questions to me in the future before I make any big decisions. Needless to say he saved me hundreds of dollars. He took time out of his day to ease my mind and my concerns and I truly appreciate his help! His front end staff Jenny is also the sweetest! She was attentive and kind before I met with Dr. Wank. If you are looking for any dental work or an amazing periodontist, Dr. Wank is the dentist for you!! Much thanks to him and his wonderful staff!!

I have been seeing Dr Wank for 3 years now, and as someone with gum issues, I’m happy I made the permanent switch to him as my primary dentist. His office is very clean and his team up front is great. The reason why I’m giving Dr Wank 5 stars is the amount of pride he takes in his work and the top-notch care he gives me as a patient. I’ve gotten root canals, gum grafts, and crowns done with him and he’s done an excellent job with all the procedures (and always takes time to explain what he’s doing). On top of it all, he’s also a nice guy, very down to earth, and easy to talk to.I would recommend Dr. Wank to anyone looking for a dentist or periodontist in NYC

A friend recommend this dentist to me because she has been going for years. This man is nasty and very unclean. He has a body odor as if he hasn’t taken a shower in days. He had his gloves on but stop to touch unsterile items like his cell phone, I had to ask him to kindly change his gloves. Just gross I wanted to vomit

I'm in my 50's and been going to Dr. Wank since I was 25 years old!! I love my teeth and they way they look. He always takes care of his clients in such a professional and exceptional way. He's the best!

Dr. Wank has been our family dentist for over 20 years. I recently contacted him to consult on dental care for my elderly mom who has Parkinson’s. She needed extensive work on her teeth but I feared the worst due to her shaking and dyskinesia. Dr. Wank reviewed the X-rays I provided and suggested evaluating them in his office on an off day so he wouldn’t have to rush.When we arrived for the appointment she was shaking terribly.I cannot express enough how kind & patient Dr. Wank was with my mom.He took his own X-rays for the procedures he was going to perform and at my request proceeded to X-ray her whole mouth for assessment and future work.He was so gentle with her, gave her the time she needed, and made her feel at home. He was able to give her the dental care she needed so she could eat without pain. He asked what medicine she took to be sure he would not cause her any harm. I was amazed at how relaxed she became and after some time the shaking stopped with no extra Parkinson’s medication given. Dr. Wank, thank you for a job incredibly well done. It’s a shame there aren’t more physicians who care about their patients as much as you do.5 stars is not a high enough rating in my opinion!!

Finally finished my Invisalign with Dr. Daniel Wank, I have been wanting to do it for quite sometime and since we’re wearing masks I figured there was no time like the present. Fara, at the front desk took me through the whole process and showed me what it would look like before and after using a program from Invisalign. Wow did the results blow my mind. I am so glad I did it and then I decided with the doctor that we should put crowns on my front two teeth and boy am I blown away.... but what makes it even better is the response I get from my friends when they see me. I trust Dr. Wank with my teeth. He is by far the best dentist I have been to in my lifetime and I have been to quite a few.... He cares about his results and his work. He cares not just about the patient but about their happiness. He wants and does do the best job by far. And again thanks to Fara for supporting me through all my issues and annoying questions. She never made me feel like I was a bother, even though I know I was

If dentistry were an Olympic sport, Dr. Wank would be a gold medalist several times over. (Of course, he would turn down a Wheaties box appearance for a lucrative celery sponsorship.)I have been his patient for three years. His fastidiousness in matters both dental and logistical is preternatural (if not downright supernatural). The same can be said for his meticulous hygienists and spry receptionists.Dr. Wank has always treated me with respect, while both in the chair and on my feet. Even without whitening, my teeth are more radiant than they have ever been. My fillings have held up faultlessly.Dr. Wank clearly cares about my teeth and gums.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Daniel Wank for 8 years. I am so glad my co-worker introduced me to him. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Shout out to Farah and Jennifer! He does have a gentle hand, but I am sensitive to pain. But Dr. Wank assures me everytime, and I have come to realize it’s mostly in my head. Obviously I trust Dr. Wank with my pearly whites and with his help they stay that way. He has done caps, root canal,scaling, and annual cleanings and I am well pleased .Thank you Dr. Wank!

DR. WANK is terrific! Many say he is the best dentist in Manhattan, a bold claim, but I definitely see what the hype is about. I’m not super picky but in my particular case it took roughly four decades. So here’s the deal: if you’re done messing around with those lousy tooth-hacks out there, and you are ready for a real-deal dentist, you are finally in luck. I’ve done all of the hard work for you- whether it’s Drillin’ N’ Fillin’, a shiny new cleaning or some braces for your unsightly spaces... DR. WANK is the right man for the job! No Dr.Wank review would be complete if I didn’t mention the top notch office staff; FARA and JENNIE are the best! Whether it is on the phone or in person, these friendly and quite attractive young ladies certainly do their part to keep the office in terrific running order... Thanks again DR. WANK, FARA and JENNIE for all that you do, see you at the next cleaning (only 179 days to go...I can’t wait).

My son saw a dentist with a tooth ache. He told him that they had to break his jaw to do all the work needed and that he should plan on recovering all summer. We saw my dentist ( Dr. Wank ) and got a second opinion. One hour and a $30 co-pay laterproblem gone. This visit saved me thousands of dollars and my son a wasted summer. I have been a patient of Dr Wank since 1987 and think of going to see him as one of the best moves I have ever made. I hate to think of what would have happened if I had not gone to see Dr. Wank.

I have never met such a money-grubbing dentist. Dr. Wank gets the most money from you by creating unnecessary dental work, and charging the maximum to your insurance.Visit 1My first cleaning was okay but they do not offer fluoride rinse. The hygienist and I noticed a small jag in one of my molars, but Dr. Wank said there was nothing there and my teeth were fine. (2 years later, it is a small cavity)He also said if I refer someone he will give me an electric toothbrush. I said great, I will bring my wife for a cleaning too, and he said he would give me an electric toothbrush.Visit 2I brought my wife for cleaning/xray. I told the receptionist Dr. Wank said I would receive an electric toothbrush for referring my wife. She said that I now have to refer TWO people to get an electric toothbrush. I complained to Dr. Wank and he said sorry and brushed it off.One cavity in my wife’s molar needed to be addressed. Dr. Wank said it would likely be a filling, but worst case scenario, require a root canal if the tooth couldn’t be saved. My wife was sent to the staff member who would advise on cost and set up appointment. The staff member checked her insurance and and saw the allocation was going to reset in a few months and printed out how much was left unspent. They explained the cost only in terms of the worst case scenario (root canal) as if it was already a forgone conclusion they would not be saving the tooth. The cost was around $3k for the single tooth, and was just under the amount her insurance would cover before it reset. It really felt like the clinic was trying to maximize my wife’s insurance and weren’t going to try save the tooth at all.Upset by how financially focused this visit was (as opposed to focusing on the health of her teeth) wife said she didn’t want to make the appointment to fix the tooth after all. The staff was taken aback and fetched Dr. Wank. He asked why my wife didn’t want to continue and she had the impression they were just going to do root canal route to max out her insurance. They only quoted a root canal, without possibility of a filling as initially discussed. Dr. Wank apologized and tore up the paper the staff had printed and said the staff should really have explained both possibilities not just the one, and he assured my wife that he would try to save the tooth. Eventually she agreed and made the appointment.Visit 3Dr. Wank fixed the tooth cavity with a filling. No root canal.Visit 4About 6 months later the filling fell out on its own. Wife went back and Dr. Wank drilled more tooth and redid the filling.Around 8 months later the filling fell out again. It seems like a way to get repeat business. We gave up on Dr. Wank and went to a different dentist for the filling.

Saw Dr. Wank due to a dental emergency and infected tooth. He made accommodations to see me on a weekend with very little notice on my part (which I really appreciated). Dr Wank is professional and made me feel like he genuinely cares for his patients. He did an excellent job and I am now pain free. Highly recommend him and his wonderful staff. 10/10 would recommend.
