This Dr. came highly recommended by a family member. The staff was very friendly with my initial appt. and it seemed great. I was sold on the Invisalign but going through the process there was so many important details that were never explained about the process and questions I did not know to ask. If I had more knowledge on the process I may have skipped Invisalign all together. Their availability is terrible and I can never get an appointment after work, even though they are open till 7 pm on Tuesdays, and yet I have to see them bi-monthly. His work feels rushed and not patient centric.

Started going here when my longtime Dentist Dr. McBride merged with Lesinski's practice. I went for years at McBride's with excellent service, and comments on my teeth and brushing. First visit with Lesinski's I was basically told that my mouth was attrocious and that I needed a long list of work done including invisalign braces which they could conveniently provide a loan for at a ridiculous rate.

Every time going there was just like being at a car mechanic's garage that is always pushing unnecessary service on their customer. This made sense when seeing a daily goal list for sales on the receptionist desk. This prompted me to check with my co-workers that used to also see McBride. I discovered they had all changed to another dentist after similar experiences.

It's very interesting how similar an experience I had as some others. I felt very pressured into paying for Invisalign braces at a cost of $6,000. They said my teeth (which I would say are average) would eventually begin to "crumble." I ran this by a friend of mine from high school who is a dentist. He said that was absolutely absurd to suggest and that braces are purely cosmetic 95% of the time.

Anyway, they tell you that it's very easy to finance, so I checked it out for my own curiosity. What you end up with is one of those GE CareCredit credit cards in the mail to pay for the dental expenses. Sound familiar? It's what NYS Attorney General Cuomo is going after health care providers for using, deeming it to be a form of predatory lending because the dental office will get a kickback if you put a balance on that card (at a 24% interest rate, the office and the credit card company are making a good bit of money from something you probably don't need).

The kicker was that they spent so much time during my "routine cleaning" trying to convince me that I should get Invisalign, that they never told me whether or not I had any cavities. It was laughable.

Very nice and clean office. The staff are friendly. I feel that rather than striving to do what's right for you, that rather do what's going to put money into the business. I'll leave it up to you to see if you feel the same way after a couple visits.

I was so impressed with Dr. lesinski and his team! I came to them with a bad tooth and swollen face. I was very scared. they were very busy and I destroyed the doctors schedule yet he only cared about my severe emergency. I can only thank them for the caring they showed a new patient who was in BIG trouble!

I must say I was very surprised to see the negative comments on my long time doctor. I am very happy here and most disappointed about these reviews. The staff at this office are so caring and spent so much time going over my needs. I NEVER feel pressured to BUY STUFF here. The staff do a wonderful job explaining your treatment needs and the reasons why. I think maybe they told these people something their needs and they just did not want to hear it. My daughter at 25 needed braces the align ones the clear whatever. Dr. Lesinski help my daughter so much. I just cannot believe that these people felt pressured or maybe they have an ax to grind.

Nice staff......BUT way too much pressure on purchasing the Avisalign braces at $6000!! Felt like i was at a car dealer. The staff must get a commission from the company that makes the braces. Only until now, was I ever told that I needed braces.....very suspicious.

Do not go to here!!!!!
I went to see this dentist due to online review....5 stars???NO WAY!!I went there twice...both times I had to wait for more than a half hour. last time I waited 50 minutes to see him for 10 minutes.
they do not explain you well what you ask, but they keep asking you to do all the expensive stuff more than enough!even receptionists go "are you sure you do not wanna do braces?" for like three times, each times you visit!
how many times should I say no? like 5 people over there asked me the same questions at least 3 times each!
they made me under pressure and I was very uncomfortable staying there. and what happens when you ask a question? "ah yea we can take a look at it next time...oh what about braces we talked last time??" yes, the office was very clean, but they provide you such an uncomfortable environment at your visit! I will never visit this dentist, ever again!!!! DO NOT GO!!!!!
