    Dr. Sales is a great dentist. She was able to get me in for a check-up on short notice. I felt really comfortable during my appointment. She listened to all my concerns and was very mindful of my pain levels. The office had COVID measures like sanitizers, masks, and face shields. I highly recommend this office! - 11/20/2020

    Dra Maria Sales is an excellent dentist that you could ever find in Queens. Very detailed, gentle and thorough with her treatments. She takes time to explain proper hygiene and gives you advise how to handle serious gum issue. Impeccable dental office and very clean instruments. Highly recommend to everyone who is looking for a new dentist. - 11/18/2020

    Going to the dentist is never a dread when I make appointments to see Dr. Sales. I always get treated with the utmost courtesy, sensitivity and tact. Dr. Sales is very meticulous in her work and is sincerely concerned for her patients' dental health. She also knows about dentures so it's a big plus. I have seen so many dentists here in New York City and I could say Dr. Sales, so far, is the best. - 11/16/2020

    Being in a medical field like her, I consider patient education to be very important. This sets her apart from other dentists/doctors because she takes her time to explain clearly about your condition & treatments. She practices what it says on the name of her clinic---gentle care. I am very pleased to have found her as our family dentist. - 10/27/2020

    Dr. Sales was very accommodating, patient, and kind. We called her a week in advance to inform her about my situation and she gave me advice and booked us for appointment right away. The procedure was quick, painless, and comfortable. She did my xray and made sure she was giving me the best treatment plan given my concern. We were very impressed and happy with our experience with her. - 10/27/2020

    I’ve always been nervous about going to the dentist ever since I was a child but Dr. Sales made it very calm and easy. She was very accommodating and kind, she explains everything in detail so you won’t have to be nervous about it and you actually learn from it too. She makes sure you are reminded of all the things you need and appointments. They also have a clean office and a really nice assistant. I highly recommend Dr. Sales! - 10/17/2020

    Choosing Dr. Sales to be your dentist is a must! Not only is she amazing at what she does, she has great bedside manner. I don't think anyone is ever really fond of going to any doctor and especially going to the dentist but I look forward to my routine cleanings every 6 months knowing I'd be greeted with a friendly smile and gentle hands that makes my mouth feeling clean and refreshed afterwards. I highly recommend Dr. Sales to anyone looking for [a new] dentist, you won't regret it! - 9/17/2020

She advices you the best options for you dental problems making sure you are comfortable. I love her and I will definitely recommend her! - 9/17/2020

    Recently had my clinic visit with Dr. Sales and as always expected it’s a pleasant one. She’s very nice and you can tell that she really love her job as a dentist. She doesn’t rush and takes her time to finish the procedure meticulously for a good outcome and you will always step out of her clinic with the feeling of satisfaction because she exceeded your expectations. Also good in conversation for you to feel comfortable during the course of your procedure. And last but not the least is the generosity, she always give away a loot bag after every clinic visits as if you came from a children’s party happily carrying take-out goodies but take note, a “dental” not sweet treats, Hahaha 😁 So I highly recommend Dr. Sales to be your next dentist. 👍 - 8/17/2020

    My husband has been seeing Dr. Sales for several months now and have gotten a teeth cleaning, and several fillings since his first meeting with the dentist. Dr. Sales has truly been gentle, thoughtful, and meticulous in caring for his dental needs. I have been able to communicate with her during the pandemic, and she has always been available during the emergencies we have had during quarantine, even providing step-by-step instructions on how to temporarily fill a cavity when we could not go into the office because of the state-ordered closures due to Covid-19. Additionally, Dr. Sales' dental exam room is very clean and organized. Since re-opening after the lockdown was lifted in NYC recently, she has taken numerous precautions other than just wearing the requisite PPE, to ensure the safety of her patients and assistants. We are grateful for her kindness and professionalism. - 7/17/2020
