 This dentist and her staff met all my expectations. Dr. Shapiro spent a lot of time listening to my worries and never seemed too rushed to listen carefully and respond to them in a very professional and caring manner. I have the utmost confidence in her and am looking forward to my new smile.

If you are in the market looking for a new dentist or of you are not fully satisfied with your current dentist, your search has ended with Dr Shapiro. My only regret is having not found her years ago. Beginning with my first contact with May in her office, the degree of professionalism and courtesy to make your experience as pleasant as possible goes well above any experience in my past. Dr Shapiro explains her plan with precision and the results have been extremely satisfying. Her assistant Linda completes the staff to make it a perfect team. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely office, everyone was smiling and friendly. They have a great system of sending reminders through email and or text message – you can opt out if you like but for me it works!! I have had an ongoing problem with my teeth and I feel very confident after meeting Dr. Terry that she will take the best approach. She comes highly recommended by my best friend who runs a dental lab and I do take his word for it. Now after meeting Dr. Terry I feel like I am finally in GREAT hands. I most definitely recommend her!!

Dr Shapiro is remarkably consistent in her care and expertise. She has taken me under her wing throughout all my dental reconstruction. She even called when she was out of town to check up on me! Her skills are bar none!!! And the icing on the cake is that she is the most humble and down-to-earth professional that I have ever met in my life. Thank you again Dr Shapiro, Linda, and May!

My Dear Dr. Shapiro, Just a brief note to let you know that I often think of you and I do miss you. Also, I wish to thank you for a wonderful job you did with my teeth. Of course, I think of you twice a day. Let me tell you that Linda and May were very kind, caring, and nice to me. I’ll never ever forget you. You all are wonderful people. May God’s good and kind blessings shine upon you.

Thank you very much again,

Dr. Shapiro is professional and caring and her dental examination was by far the most through I have ever had. I would highly recommend her. Her office is clean and has a calm atmosphere.

Dr. Shapiro is fantastic. When I first moved to Long Island, I went to a dentist who did quite a bit of unnecessary (and shoddy!) work on my teeth. After realizing this and researching for a better dentist, I found Dr. Shapiro. She confirmed that that work was unnecessary and was able to fix the fillings that were poorly done by my previous dentist. Not only is she a great dentist, but her office staff is wonderful, too! I definitely recommend her!

I know I am in good hands with Dr Shapiro so I didn’t really feel as nervous as I would have. I had an extensive 4-hr process on my entire upper jaw and felt no pain! Dr Shapiro’s caring and expertise always reduces my stress level and anxiety. Thank you Dr Shapiro and assistant Linda! Dr Shapiro and staff are always there to answer my questions; they call to see how I am feeling with true concern. I had some work done during the noreaster and Dr Shapiro called to see if I got home safely! I travel 60 miles round trip to see Dr Shapiro and it is the best investment I could ever make! She is leading me back on the road to recovery in many different ways.

Dr Shapiro has a wonderful staff. I had to have my entire teeth pulled (Went to the oral surgeon) but the aftercare is just great. She made my dentures & the same day had them put in by the oral surgeon, but went to her office so she could check them. Dr Shapiro has May call to see how I was doing. I recommend her if you are looking for a good dentist. Thanks again Dr. Shapiro & staff, see you soon.

Having a crown replaced after 30 yrs., I was amazed at how hi-tech dentistry had become. I had a painless experience in pleasant surroundings. Dr Shapiro was warm and welcoming, as was her staff, and I felt I was in capable hands from beginning to end. A dreaded appointment became a wonderful experience!

Everyone knows that moving to a new place can be tough, especially when it comes to finding a new dentist. I met Dr. Terry Shapiro about 5 years ago and decided to start going to her for my routine checks ups and dental care. She has always gone over and beyond the call of duty to guide me in the right direction on what’s best for me and my family’s health. She not only spends quality time with her patients but she makes sure everyone that comes in the office has the best experience possible. Her office is state of the art but she manages to keep the “small town feel.” I would highly recommend anyone that is concerned about their dental health to go see Terry and her staff for evaluation. Unfortunately, I had to move again about a year or so ago but even today I can still call Terry for expert advice. I trusted her with my family because they deserve the best!

For a very long time I did not smile much because of the poor state my teeth were in. Dr. Shapiro, with her meticulous attention to detail surpassed my expectations as to what my teeth would look like after she was done. I have never smiled as much in my life as I do now. I constantly want to show off the great job Dr. Shapiro did on my teeth. All my relatives are astonished that my teeth could ever look as good as they do now. Dr. Shapiro thank you so much for improving my quality of life with the magnificent job you did on my teeth.

I barely had my foot in the door and I was greeted with such smiles that I immediately felt at ease. I’m not someone who is nervous with the dentist themselves, but with the situation that I have my teeth in is a bit embarrassing and It’s not something I like to discuss, so it was just a very warm feeling to walk into. The exam, the xrays (as much as I hate those) were very calm and easy. Dr. Shapiro and Linda are very gentle and are making sure you feel comfortable with everything. The greatest thing is being able to see the treatment plan right in front of you without any surprises. I am glad that I went to her, and I can not wait to get my treatment started. Thank you Dr. Shapiro, Mae, and Linda. Have a great week.

Been meaning to write this thank you now for a few weeks. Many thanks to you, Linda, and Mae for all your help and patience. The three of you work so well together as a team. When I look at the before and after photos, I cant believe the difference. I am now confident to talk and smile and know that I look great doing so. Every time I came for an appointment, which there were many, I always felt at ease and knew I was in good hands.

Found the perfect dentist – again. Six years ago our family dentist of 25 years passed away. I spent the interim in search of a dentist that met his standard of quality and care with no success. One Saturday morning while eating breakfast a front tooth broke off. In a panic, I searched the internet and came across Dr. Shapiro. I called her office and to my surprise she saw me within three hours. She temporarily fixed my tooth for the weekend and followed up the following Monday for a more permanent solution. I was so impressed with her caring, attention to detail and her ability to put me at ease that I feel I have finally found the perfect dentist again. Thank you again, Dr. Shapiro!

Dear Dr. Shapiro,

I have been meaning to write a thank you and excellent review regarding the outstanding dentures you provided for my husband. He has a beautiful, custom made, denture of the highest quality. You use the latest, most current, highest quality dental technology. You are truly professional, an expert, aware of all the most current trends and procedures in dentistry, kind and caring. You also make your dentistry affordable, put your patients at ease and help your patients feel comfortable and calm. It is evident that you are passionate about dentistry and doing dental work of the highest caliber. I look forward to being in your dental chair soon to start my needed lower partial which you evaluated as something needed. I trust you fully and your treatment plan because your work is excellent. You care about your patients emotional well being as well as doing the very best individualized dental work possible. It is a pleasure and relief to know that I have finally found a dentist worthy of the highest praise and recognition. Kudos to Dr. Shapiro!

With sincere gratitude for helping my husband and I have healthy, beautiful smiles,

Dr Shapiro is a true professional. As a dental technician, it is my privilege to work for and with her. Her attention to detail and meticulous execution is carried through her patient’s entire case. Dr Shapiro demonstrates a level of caring that is refreshing. She and her lovely staff’s dedication to their patients shine through during each step of treatment. It is my honor to know Dr Shapiro.

Dear Dr. Shapiro,

I just wanted to say thank you for the kindness that you and your staff have expressed toward me. Your calm demeanor is beginning to help me realize that this situation may not be the tragedy that I envision it to be. Although I am devastated by the appearance of my veneers, it makes me feel so much better to know that someone cares. I have felt very alone, embarrassed and defeated during this ordeal. I definitely blame myself for letting Dr. D. treat me – even though I know that is unrealistic. He is the professional, and should have informed me of all of the risks, and of his inability to do cosmetic work. I wish I had come to your office sooner! Anyway, thanks again for your professionalism, your kindness and your concern.

Sincerely,

Kerry

Dear May!

I’m so impressed with your email…..thank you for helping me to feel so welcome! You and Dr. Terry are a class act! I’m not great with working my way around a PC…..worked for many years on a computer on a professional level as an administrator but since I retired I’m just starting to use the computer for personal use. I will attempt to find the forms thru your web site and complete the necessary paperwork….but I may need to arrive a 1/2 hour early on the 25th and complete the paper work in the office before my appt.

Again, thank you so much for your professionalism, efficiency and welcoming attitude. Dr. Terry is fortunate to have you working with her practice.

Fondly,

Cindy Bracken

Dear Terry,

It has been such a pleasure working with you over this past year. To work with somebody as like-minded as myself when it comes to treatment planning for long term success is a god-send. Your patients are lucky!

An Exceptional Dentist! I haven’t stopped smiling since Dr. Shapiro replaced my crown. The work she had done has been unprecedented. She is truly an artist in the field of dentistry. Incredibly knowledgeable; a master of her trade. She uses state of the art technology and advances her skills continuously. The periodontist and dental lab she associates with are equally impressive…and physicians from both places couldn’t say enough wonderful things about her. Her office staff is very supportive and friendly. Not only do I recommend Dr. Shapiro to all of my friends and co-workers, I have my children going to her too.

Dr. Shapiro has been my dentist for over 25 years. She is very gentle and concerned with your comfort. Her office records are all digital, complete with digital x-rays so she can display your information and pictures easily while she discusses her findings and treatment plan with you. I am most impressed by her continually taking courses to keep up with the latest techniques and technologies. I recommend Dr. Shapiro to all my friends and family

The Best Dental Experience Ever!

Thank You Dr. Shapiro. Not only have you helped me overcome my fear of going to the dentist, but also you have helped me get control over my dental health. Your approach to patient care is top-notch. You found my problems and addressed them. Your office is so peaceful (there is such a zen-like quality to the views from the patient’s chair). Your staff is caring and everyone in your office goes out of their way to make the patient feel comfortable. In short, this was truly the best dental experience of my life. I highly recommend you to everyone!

I have been seeing Dr. Shapiro for my dental care for 20+ years. She is very thorough and attentive, with a one patient at a time philosophy. Dr. Shapiro keeps apprised of the newest dental techniques and materials, and only uses the most durable products on her patients. My fillings have passed the test of time! Her office has a calm and serene atmosphere, and her gentle personality helps even the most dental-phobic patients to be comfortable (my husband who refused to see a dentist for years now sees her regularly). You will be hard- pressed to find another dentist who will provide you with such excellent care!

Dear Dr. Shapiro,

I just wanted to thank you so very much for actually listening to my concerns and getting it right from the beginning! I know they are only temporary crowns but I actually have my normal facial contours (of which I have not seen in almost 10 years). I know it may not seem like much of a difference to anyone else but I most certainly notice and feel the difference. I can actually phonate words properly!

Thank you for being so kind, compassionate, honest and diligent :-).
Great work thus far!

Dear Dr. Shapiro,

I can not thank you enough. You did to my teeth what Picasso does to canvas. Your expertise, professionalism and the way you cared about me was astounding. Other Dentists should learn from you. Besides a great smile, you built up my confidence and self esteem. As I said, I can’t thank you enough.

Gratefully,

I am very satisfied with the dental care Dr. Shapiro has performed over the years for me and my family. I feel that she carefully explains all the options so that I can understand the procedures that are chosen. Her dental work has stood the test of time and I am comfortable at her office.

I was very at ease with you and your staff. That is very important in the dentistry profession. I look forward to walking to the dentist again. My last time was when I was 13 and we did not have coverage back then so my visits were every 4-5 YEARS…..and 17-20 cavities. That always made it painful both before, during, and after. Not so anymore. Everyday I find another reason to like this neighborhood.

I just found this video while Googling Dr. Shapiro to refer her to a friend… She really IS a great dentist! She’s so passionate about getting the job done well such a relief to know I finally found a dentist that I can trust!

Dear Dr. Shapiro,

I recently had a bad experience with a local oral surgeon.  I turned to you on the recommendation of my fiance, Ed Giarrizzo to ask some advice about an acute abcess above my tooth.  Your professional manner in which you swiftly addressed my problem and the time you spent with me was a welcome change from my previous dental experiences.  I feel completely confident in the diagnosis and care that I have received in your practice and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.  I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, I really appreciate how you went above and beyond for me.  You have a patient for life!

Warm Regards,
Amy Roland


I LOVE MY NEW VENEERS!!!
Thank you Dr. Shapiro!!!!

Dear Shapiro,

I would like to thank you for seeing me today and for taking the time to explain your work and the options I have. Showing me the pictures of your patients has given me some hope. You made me feel very comfortable, thank you again. See you on 2/1/10.

Dr. Shapiro has been our family dentist for over 2 years now. She has not only kept my family healthy with regular maintenance and expert advice but she has been there in times of crisis. She specializes in cosmetic dentistry and is very detail oriented with every aspect of my family’s well being. We wouldn’t think of changing to a different dentist!

Had my first dental appointment with Dr. Terry Shapiro in Setauket. I learned more in that visit than I have in the last few decades of dentist consultations. She took numerous pictures of my teeth. I saw the gum issues another dentist after check… ups and cleanings never told me about. She gave me an honest, in depth assessment looking forward and I set up my next appt.

Dear Dr. Shapiro,

I want to thank you for a pleasant experience with an amazing outcome. I had a severe case of “dental anxiety” until I came to your office. The warm and friendly atmosphere along with your wonderful staff made me feel like a welcomed visitor rather than “just another patient”. Your experience, expertise and perfectionism are apparent in the quality work you do. I am so very happy with my new smile. I will highly recommend you to all my friends and family.

Thank You,

Dear Dr. Shapiro,

My experience with Dr. Terry Shapiro has been nothing but positive. As someone who has had a lifetime of problems with teeth and gums, I appreciate Dr. Shapiro’s knowledge, expertise and passion for helping people have a better smile! Dr. Shapiro was recommended to me by a good friend, and in turn, I recommend her to everyone! I totally trust Dr. Shapiro, and would not go to anyone else!

Dear Terry,

This is just a little thank you for your kind and thorough help getting Abby into good dental hands. She feels comfortable and confident with your recommendation and her parents feel greatly relieved.

I don’t know whether your schedule permits going to one of the remaining operas but perhaps next year as they are lots of fun!

With all best and appreciative wishes!

Peggy and Larry


Dear Dr. Shapiro,
I want to thank you for the exceptionally pleasant experience that I had concerning all my extensive dental work.

You are the most thorough, conscientious and customer service oriented dentist that I have ever been treated by. Also I cannot say enough good things regarding your wonderful staff.

Please feel free to call on me anytime for a well deserved honest recommendation. You are the best!

Sincerely,

Dear Dr. Shapiro, Linda and May;
I don’t know how to begin to Thank You for my wonderful new smile! Every time I see myself in the mirror, I still can’t believe it’s me. You have done an amazing job. What a great experience. You are all such kind and caring people. Never had I had such exceptional treatment. All the things you have done for me are too numerous to list….but here are just a few. Thank you for always working around my schedule, which includes coming in on your days off, just for me. Thank you for the many follow-up phone calls the day after my visit, just to check up on me. Thank you for being so kind and patient to my three Grandchildren when I had to bring them along to my appointments, as well.

And above all…thank you for making me feel comfortable about each step of your procedures. I never dreamed that after all these years of being embarrassed to smile…that I would be so proud of my smile. I have never been told “you have a great smile” – now I hear it all the time! I had heard so many nightmare stories from people who have dentures…well those people should have had you for a dentist. You have helped boost my self-esteem ten fold. My family is still in awe at how great I look. I was recently told I look twenty years younger! WOW! I never dreamed things would turn out so great for me. I would recommend YOU Dr. Shapiro to everyone. You should be very proud of your great staff as well.

Thanks again, for everything!
Nancy Massaros


Dear Dr. Shapiro,
Thank You! Thank You!
I am truly grateful for the excellent dental services that I received from you. From the moment we spoke I knew you were different than any of the previous dentists that I had tried. Honestly, I was truly a petrified big baby when it came to going to the dentist, until I found you. I honestly was shocked when you gave me your personal cell number and told me that I can call you any time. You are more than just a great dentist, but a very kind and caring person, who does great painless dental work. And as far as your staff, they are the greatest, very warm caring wonderful people.

Please Post This. You Forever Changed My Life And It May Help Others.

Thank You,
Charlotte Perks

P.S. Please thank Linda for holding my hand and May for her kindness.


Dear Dr. Shapiro,
I cannot think of words strong enough to express to you how grateful I am to you for giving me such a beautiful smile. Family and friends alike are amazed at how gorgeous and natural my teeth look. Although the process was lengthy, I felt comfortable and confident every step of the way. I felt you and Linda took all the time I needed to make my teeth look and feel great. I cannot wait for my wedding day and you have given me more confidence to shine! Thanks again!

Love, Katie Connolly

P.S. I promise to send you pics from the wedding!


Dear Dr. Shapiro,
I want to thank you sincerely for everything you’ve done for me. Knowing you has made a big difference in the way I look now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful job you did to make my teeth healthy and to give me a million dollar smile, a natural look that my family, friends and audience appreciate, and I will always owe this to you.

Yours in friendship and admiration.
