"Magic Hands... okay, not literally...
But I should have experienced some pain or discomfort, but I didn't.
I went to Dr Eddy Ferreira for a general check-up and for a much needed deep-clean (removing plaque/tarter below the gum-line or something along that nature) and that normally comes with some discomfort (during and after). Unfortunately, I didn't know but I had a really bad cavity (almost to the point where a root canal would be required). The doctor made me very comfortable and handled me directly (not cleaned/handled by a dental hygienist). He periodically made small talk during the procedures to make sure I was alright and keep me at ease.
His practice is located in Jackson Heights in one of the historic buildings. The office itself is tastefully decorated. He even has a room dedicated for kids; although I am far from being a kiddie anymore, the room would have made me comfy if I was a little tike. Lastly, his staff deserves a comment too as they are all super friendly and attentive.
Thanks Doctor Eddy"

"Very nice, I took my son. Dr. Ferreira was very calm and my son wasn't scared and was happy to get a toy at the end.

"I came to Dr. Ferreira almost 3 years ago when I moved into the neighborhood. Taking a chance and just walking into his office to make a cleaning appointment has definitely proved to be a great choice. I certainly can not speak more highly of his front office staff, as well as his hygienist assistants. They make you feel welcome, and explain everything that they are doing.
Dr. Ferreira's professionalism is met with a very friendly personality. Dr. Ferreira performs all aspects of the cleaning himself (other offices delegate that to the dental assistants/hygienist).
While I'm far from a child, I can only imagine his hospitable, and friendly demeanor would go over well with children. If you're looking for a great dentist, with a professional and extremely friendly office staff, look no further.

"I have to say Dr. Ferreira is the best. He's a great Dentist and his staff are so warm and friendly. I'm currently in the processing of having my second root canal done with him. Root canal without pain does exist! I highly recommend Dr. Ferreira"
