    Comment:  We're fans of Tendler! He is very slow and gentle with our 3 year old (she was 2 when we first started seeing him.) he explains everything and takes his time to make her feel at ease, as does the hygienist. He also remembers us visit to visit and makes us feel very welcome. His office is close to most transit.

    Comment:  We are very happy with Zev Tendler. He has a new associate dentist whom my boys just had an appointment with and she was excellent as well. They have great front staff, modern technology, great hygienists, and a very child friendly space and approach. Good prices and insurance friendly too! 32 court st- easy to get to.

    Comment:  I also recommend Dr. Tendler. He is amazing. He is very good with children and does go above and beyond. He is super responsive when we have questions and won't ask you to come in unnecessarily. For some reason, my son has had all sorts of issues even though he doesn't eat sweets, and we ended up seeing Dr. Tendler when he was still in Park Slope three years ago. Someone miraculously cancelled their appointment and we were able to see Dr. Tendler who took care of my son with an emergency teeth extraction and root canal!When he moved his practice to Brooklyn Heights, we went to Brooklyn Heights for treatment. His office is right off the 2/3/4/5 Boro Hill subway stop. His office is new, and everyone in his office is super helpful and friendly.

    Comment:  I cannot recommend Dr. Zev Tendler enough. He is absolutely the best pediatric dentist in the area. Many people on the list recommend him and use him. In addition, my son had serious tooth injury recently and Dr. Tendler went above and beyond what was expected. The care he had provided during this difficult time was unbelievable (including following up at midnight on the status of the ER visit).He used to be in Park Slope, but he recently opened his new office in Brooklyn Heights off Court Street.

    Comment:  I'd like to provide a wholeheartedly positive review for Dr. Tendler and his office staff. My children (ages 5 and 3) look forward to going to the dentist, and he is incredibly kind, thorough and fun. The staff are amazingly welcoming and friendly, and our appointments have always been on time. His office moved to downtown Brooklyn from Park Slope but we find it's worth it because he's so great. While he has Sunday office hours, those appointments can be very hard to get. This has been the only challenge, as working parents, but we still make it work.

    Comment:  I can second the endorsement for Dr. Tendler. He's a bit of an odd duck (we were just there yesterday and he was singing some sort of smooth jazz version of the ABC song while he looked at my son's teeth) but my 4 year old loves going to the dentist so he's clearly doing something right.

    Comment:  I would like to submit my wholehearted and enthusiastic recommendation for Dr. Zev Tendler, of Pediatric Dentistry of Brooklyn at 32 court Street. I took my 2.5 year old to see him today for his very first dental appointment. I wasn't sure where to go and decided on Dr. Tendler based on recommendations on PSP. Dr. Tendler was warm and spoke to me clearly with a lot of empathy about everything I had questions about.Dr. Tendler was charming and sweet with my son and engaged him from the very first moment. He sang songs, distracted him with jokes, and showed my son all of his "cool tools." He checked all of my son's teeth and taught him how to check the teeth of the dino and the lion in his office. And when the slightly less comfortable parts came (cleaning and rinsing) he show my son how to "help" with the process and made him giggle every time it all became a bit too much. There was not a single tear in sight. As an adult with a long history of traumatic dentist experiences, I was overjoyed to see my son smiling in the dentist's chair.

    Comment:  I've been reading the praises on PSP for Dr. Zev Tendler, pediatric dentist, for a while now, but never quite understood them.Then I took my almost 3 year old son for his first dentist visit. Dr. Tendler and his staff were amazing - kind, gentle, funny, accommodating, responsive. The office was friendly and, well, they had a play kitchen and Curious George on tv in the waiting room...The dentist managed to perform a full cleaning - flossing, brushing, fluoride treatment - on my son without a single tear or even a fuss or fight. I'm thoroughly impressed!!The office is in downtown Brooklyn by City Hall so it can be a full adventure! There's an office supply store downstairs with loads of toys. We were a little early so we bought a treat "to show Dr. Tendler," who kindly played along.Looking forward to seeing him again in 6 months (and hopefully not sooner, knock knock!).

    Comment:  I also heartily recommend Dr. Tendler.My four year old recently had to have his front tooth extracted -- it was an old injury that had finally become infected. This might have been a rather traumatic or at least unpleasant experience, but Dr. Tendler was so incredible that my son now claims he wants to be a "pe-de-a-tric dentist!" when he grows up!His new office is great, as is his support staff.(Reviewed April 2015)

    Comment:   I took my two kids (4 years old and 2 years old) to Dr. Zev Tendler yesterday morning and it was the BEST experience. The dental assistant, Kimberly, was warm and greeted my kids by name and put them both at ease. My 4 year old had been to a different dentist twice before and it was my 2 year old's first dentist appointment.Dr. Tendler made them comfortable by using puppets with teeth to show them everything he was going to do before he started, letting them sniff the toothpaste and singing Frozen songs with lyrics changed to dental hygiene facts.Again, a wonderful experience for both kids and he addressed my concerns regarding thumb sucking and overcrowding teeth in a warm and comforting manner.I have no affiliation, just a super happy customer. If you are in search of a dentist, he was great!(Reviewed April 2015)

    Comment:   I took my year and a half old son to Dr. Tendler's new office for his first visit. The office is great - bright and colorful and all the staff were friendly and welcoming. Dr Tendler was amazing with my little guy, immediately crouching right down to his level and making him laugh, and then sang throughout the whole examination. My son has some strange teeth issues (turns out he has an extra tooth!), and I am SO grateful that it was Dr. Tendler that he saw. Dr. Tendler is obviously incredibly knowledgeable about pediatric dentistry and he immediately spotted what the problem was and was able to explain all the information I needed. He told me not to worry, but when I inevitably did, he called me on his cell phone that evening and carefully went over all out options and offered to have us come back in for further conversation. I am so glad he is our dentist and I would highly recommend him to any other parent.

He sings opera to the kids as hes giving a cleaning, my kids just love it. He also has rights at Columbia Pres if your child needs oral surgery, as mine did. He has been amazing and I only wish we found him sooner.

    Comment:  I recently posted looking for a pediatric dentist recommendations for my 2.5 year old and received several recommendations for Dr. Zev Tendler in Park Slope, who also has a number of very positive recommendations on the PSP site. We took my daughter to see Dr. Tendler yesterday for her first dentist visit and I now understand the high praise. He has a lovely manner with kids (sang Twinkle, Twinkle song while examining her teeth) and is silly at all the right moments, but more importantly very sharp. He took a good hour with us, asking and answering questions. I just wanted to let parents who are also in the market know that Dr. Tendler is - as advertised - excellent. In addition, he has Sunday office hours - a big plus if both parents want to get in on the initial dental appointment fun. And, as he is located on 8th Avenue and 3rd Street, you can head right to the playground afterward.(May 2012)

While I wasn't there, it sounds like the primary technique was distraction via Cars movie and copious stickers "earned" for getting through each part of the exam... and it worked like a charm! We are so relieved to have found a dentist our son feels comfortable going to.

    Comment:  My daughter and I are picky, so we have been through four different dentists over the past few years. Some were OK, some were terrible. But I think we have found the best pediatric dentist, and he's right on 3rd Street. This is the first time we'd seen Dr. Zev Tendler, but he was extremely funny and made my daughter laugh non-stop while teaching her about her teeth, her gums, and her overall dental health. He was gentle and explained every single thing he did and every single tool he used. He addressed her, not just me. He was kind and clearly LOVES working with children. He answered all our questions with honesty and humor. He never tried to rush us out and he even sent me an email this morning asking me if I wanted any more information. His dental assistant, Kimberly, was so nice to my daughter and every single person in this office had a smile on their face. Does it get any better than that? I really can't say enough about Dr. Tendler and I just wish we'd found him years ago.(September 2011)
