i recently had 4 laminates done. I was hit with a hockey stick when i was younger and just wanted a natural look.
I went in, had the procedure done, 1 week later, I came out looking like I had these perfect teeth my whole life. People ask me if something changed about me - I say no!

I went to Dr. Shins office and the hygienist was really gentle and friendly, and Dr. Shin is a great dentist - very competent and explained everything really thoroughly. VERY different from the old dentist I grew up with Virginia. Highly recommended!!

These "reviews" are insipid enough to be laughable ("I was apprehensive about getting horse teeth"?!?! A professional singer in Atlanta? Honey, a "professional singer" living in Atlanta would be doing good to buy a tank of gas to Marietta, let alone fly to NYC to go to the dentist. "I don't care if my insurance pays or not." Yeah, really you'll find most people are like that, they like spending money they don't have to and most prefer not to maximize their insurance benefit.

Keep the laffs coming!

I am professional singer and I needed to give myself an dental makeover. I was very apprehensive that I would get horse teeth and would ruin the way I sing. I finally did it and I got my professional head shots done.....and I look and feel great. Dr Shin transformed me from having a goofy crooked grin to a perfect smile. I got 5 laminates done and 1 root canal which was totally painless! I am moving to Atlanta, but will continue to come to the dentist every six months in new york.

my entire family (5 of us including myself) have been seeing dr. shin for at least 5 years. i have terrible teeth and now have healthy chompers and go for my cleanings faithfully every 3 months - whether insurance pays for them or not.

Dr. Shin is so cool. I feel like she understood all my complicated dental problems and I:m really happy with all my dental work that she did. I had my entire top fronts done and I love them! I have no idea what that negative review was talking about - they are truly professional and top-notch!!!!!!

I??ve been going to Dr. Shin??s office for all my dental work for almost 5 years. I have found her staff courteous, professional, and friendly. They have always been upfront and open about billing and costs of any procedures, and have even offered to help find ways to make payments easier for me if needed.

Dr. Shin has a deft hand and gentle touch when working on my teeth. As a patient who doesn??t like to go to see a dentist (as most of us are) I was put at ease by her gentle nature and friendliness.

Since choosing her as my dentist I have gone for regular cleanings, whitenings as well as 4 veneers on my front upper teeth. Everywhere I go now people ask me where I get my dental work done and I get compliments on my teeth.

The office is clean and new - which is refreshing to say the least when talking about dental offices in New York.

Dr. Shin truly cares about the quality of her work and the satisfaction of her patients. I couldn??t recommend becoming one her patients more.

Imma tellin?? you, would you looky there? Seven brand-new City Searchers write glowing reviews, in the same voice, one right after another??3 on the same day!??and all in the exact same places, one on City Search, two on Yelp! Now that is a real co-inky-dink, right there, it is. Yessiree, kids, that is one for the books, right up there with seeing the Blessed Mother on the side of your toaster!

The all-of-a-sudden appearance of an enthusiastic fan club here calls to mind the skeevy ethics of Kris Kross' office: the seamy, ugly money-grubbing and lying. Instead of a little beaver with a toothbrush, the icon at Chez Shin should be a weasel with its hand in a patient's pocket.

OK, here??s the deal: Know Before You Go. What??s that mean? If you have dental insurance, find out if the dentist is in-network or out-of-network before you schedule an appointment. Call your insurance company or go to its website to find out, though it??s better to call; websites sometimes aren??t updated. Why??s this important?

You and/or your employer are paying a lot for your insurance, and you want to make the most of it. You save the most money and maximize your benefit if you go to an in-network dentist. On another site, Shin lists several insurance companies she accepts. Well, heck, yeah, she??d LOVE to accept, as an out-of-network provider, your insurance because she can get about twice as much money. Great for her. For you, not so much. How about we walk through an example?

Two different companies I??ve had insurance with pay for a twice-yearly exam and cleaning at 100 percent if you go to an in-network dentist. Nothing up front, no co-pay. Zip, nada, nil. The dentist gets, let??s say, around $150, the fee that??s negotiated with the insurer.

If you go out-of-network, 1) the dentist is going to bill, and get, about twice as much, say, using our example, $300 (these #s are approximations), and 2) she is going to want it upfront. That??s because the insurance co. is going to send you the check later, which 3) you are NOT going to be reimbursed 100 percent for, and 4) you have just used up twice the amount of your insurance benefit. This is important if you end up needing to have something like fillings, crowns or a root canal later on, things that can start to get expensive. For example: Say your annual benefit is $1,500, you just used up $300 of it rather than $150.

So be hyper-vigilant and savvy. Question everything, then find your own answers independently. Don??t be bullied or believe everything a low-level receptionist, who??s nothing more than a clerk, tells you (not that there??s anything wrong with clerks. The nice, honest ones anyway). If something doesn??t sound right, you??ve got your cell with you, right? Call the 800 number on your insurance card and find out the skinny.

You can find out, too, what your insurance company will pay for specific procedures before you go, either on the website or by calling. If you have much work done, watch what??s been paid out so you don??t go over your annual benefit; you can ask the office to get an estimate of predetermined benefits.

Do these things and you??ll save yourself a lot of headaches ?? and money.
