Alan Azrak, DDS
Dentist for 3yr OldWe’ve had a good experience with Dr Alan Azrak.
pediatric dentist?You might be all set, but we've been going to Dr. Azrak with our oldest since he was 2 and they've always been great.
ISO: thoughts re Alan AzrakWe've had a very positive experience with our now 5yo with both Dr. Azrak and his exceptionally kind and patient team. On the first visit they took the time to let our kiddo see how all their equipment works and to handle some of it. They even let our younger kiddo participate in some of the experience. Thanks to their kid-centered approach (and the tiny toys they give out), my kids say they love going to the dentist. Our understanding is that the office doesn't accept any insurance; we've found them to be helpful with the reimbursement process.
ISO: thoughts re Alan AzrakWe have used him for 12 years without issues. He is kind and detail oriented. I find that he explains everything to me and to my kids before he does any work. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. Jen
ISO: thoughts re Alan AzrakWe love him - he's a great dentist. Both my boys have been seeing him since they were 2 (so for over 10 years). He is kind, patient, and his staff is as well. My older son has had numerous problems with his teeth, so we've had lots of visits. He is always calm, explains everything thoroughly before he does it, and the kids like him. That alone impresses me because I always hated the dentist.
ISO: thoughts re Alan AzrakWe have had a great experience with Dr. Alan in terms of his dental work and his reassuring way with our daughter, who is now 13 and has been going to him for years. But if he asks you to approve the use of sealant, be sure to ask how much it costs, especially if you don’t have dental insurance (and we don’t). I didn’t ask and suffered sticker shock when they presented me with a bill for more than $800 (4 teeth x $200 each). Seems like he should’ve been more upfront about the high cost, knowing we don’t have insurance, but caveat emptor, my bad.
ISO: thoughts re Alan AzrakOur older two have been going to this dentist for about 2 years but we will be switching, after the experience we had having sealance (sp?) put on my 7-year-old's permanent teeth. The first problem was that several fell off, but for all I know this is a common problem. The real issue is that during the second application, when my daughter had asked for a break between teeth, and was indicating that she wanted a break, they tried to hold her down, keep her mouth open and force her through the procedure and I literally had to yell at them to give her a break now before they stopped. And then they were basically complaining about having to "start over on that tooth" (we are talking about 2 extra minutes at most). We only had one tooth left so I coached her through it but I will never be returning with any of my kids.
ISO: thoughts re Alan AzrakWe've been to Alan Azrak a few times for our now four year old. We went to him when our son was very little and chipped a tooth and he couldn't have been nicer. He's patient and lovely. His nurses are lovely, too. Nothing bad to say at all.
ISO: thoughts re Alan AzrakHe’s fantastic! We’ve been taking our daughter to him for a year or two and cannot day enough about him and his office.
Dentist Recommendations 9/1/2020Seconding the recommendation for Dr. Azrak at Park Slope Pediatric Dentistry. My son (now 5.5) has knocked out not one but two teeth (on two separate occasions!!), one of which required an extraction, and Dr. Azrak’s calm bedside manner through both of those incidents was awesome. He also plays movies during cleanings and has a “treasure chest” to pick out prizes at the end of the visit. We are taking his sister (almost 3) for her first cleaning there next week.
Dentist Recommendations 9/1/2020I recently took (2y 9mo) to her first appt/cleaning at Park Slope Pediatric Dentistry, North Slope on 6th Ave at Sterling Ave. She had a highly positive experience. Dr. Alan Azrak and the dental hygienist were very welcoming, warm and kind. Great rapport with toddlers.
ISO: Pediatric Dentist RecomendationWe've been very happy with Dr. Alan Azrak, at Park Slope Pediatric Dental. He on 6th Ave. and Sterling Pl. Both of my boys see him, as did my nephew.
Need Pediatric Dentist Recommendations!We love Dr. Azrak at Park Slope Pediatric Dental. He’s warm, gentle and funny. My kids quote him and remember his instructions to the point that they’re telling me what I need to do for their teeth. Even my shy, reticent daughter opens right up for him with no tears.
Pediatric dentist recommendationsMY kids have been going to Dr. Azrak for 11 years. He is great and they have state of the art equipment.
2018 ReviewDr. Alan Azrak is amazing! My very nervous kids always open right up for him. Not only are there no tears, but he has them laughing and happy. His hygienist Bessie is also amazing.
2018 ReviewMy 5-year Old has seen him for a few years now and he’s amazing. Somehow got him flossing a few years ago. No tears at appointments, he is so so gentle and wonderful. We love his office!
2018 ReviewOur two year old just saw Dr. Alan Azrak at Park Slope Pediatric Dental Associates and we couldn't have hoped for a better experience. His hygienist (sorry, don't remember her name), was wonderful at introducing him to all her equipment and explaining what she would do and why before she did it (all in super simple terms so he could understand). He was enthralled, and happily kept his mouth open while she counted his teeth and then showed him how to brush. They know their audience well - the end of the appt includes a visit to the toy bin (picture baskets of $.05 dinosaurs/cars/bracelets/etc. where he could choose a few treasures. He talked about the visit for days after. He still fondly picks up the pouch they gave for his brush and toy treasures, and remembers the 'doctor's' kindness. A total win!
[Winter2016Babies] Pediatric DentistAgree with all for Azrak!
[Winter2016Babies] Pediatric DentistWe see Dr Azrak for my older one as well. He checked out Ian's mouth as a courtesy when I brought him to his brother's appointment (Ian still only has 8 teeth!) and he said we can keep bringing Ian along to his brother's appointments for now, and he wont charge us until he thinks he needs a real cleaning.
[Winter2016Babies] Pediatric DentistAnother vote for Alan Azrak. My 5-year Old has seen him for a few years now and he’s amazing. Somehow got him flossing a few years ago. No tears at appointments, he is so so gentle and wonderful. We love his office!

Another tip I got from a friend and the dentist confirmed - that delicious, healthy dried fruit we give him as a snack is a notorious cavity-maker. Ever since, our guy knows when he has his beloved mango, he has to brush immediately after.
Dentist for 2 y/oBoth my kids go to Dr. Azrak, Park Slope Pediatric dental. My older son for 10 years and younger son for 6 years. My younger son, went to Dr. Zev for one cleaning and I thought he was not as thorough as Dr. Azrak, so I switch him to Dr. Azrak. His office is very warm with state of the art equipment. My boys have never had a cavity.
[Fall2016babies] DentistsWe love Alan Azrak on 6th Ave but I didn't take my daughter until she was 2... so haven't taken my 1y old yet
pediatric dentist rec neededwe go to http://www.pspdental.net/ which is also on 6th ave - the dentists name is Alan Azrak .. we have only had one visit so far ( my daughter is 2 yrs old) but he was really patient and friendly and answered any questions we had. so far so good?
[PSP Winter 2016 Babies] dentistWe love Dr. Azrak also for my older kid. We’ll probably wait till Nora’s closer to 3 but definitely planning to go back.
[PSP Winter 2016 Babies] dentistDitto Dr Azrak. My 4.5 year old sees him and he’s wonderful. Can’t speak highly enough about him. I plan to bring Soleil to the older one’s next check up for a peek in her mouth like Melissa described below.
[PSP Winter 2016 Babies] dentistWe take my older one to dr azrak on 6th Avenue. He is fabulous with little kids! He took a look in Ian’s mouth when we were there but said we probably wouldn’t need an official visit for another year (Ian still only has four teeth).
Looking for a good Pediatric Dentist in South or central slope?We absolutely love Alan Azrak who is mid to north slope. And he is fantastic with two year olds! My two-and-a-half year old hates all things doctor and he was able, within two visits to get her to sit for a whole cleaning. His staff is also wonderful, and I really trust their approach. My 7-year-old is a die-hard flosser and brusher after having been Dr. Azrak's patient her whole life. I think they are great. (November 2014)
ISO favorite pediatric dentistWe (or my kids) LOVE Dr. Azrak! He is fun, gentle and his new office is huge, clean and lots of toys for kids to get entertain. I just wish he accept insurance not that my daughter see him every 6 months.
Re: ISO: Dentist open on Sunday/Emergency DentistDr. Azrak works Sundays. He specializes in pediatrics.
Re: ISO extended breast-feeding friendly pediatric dentistWe take our kids to Dr. Alan Azrak. I've never checked his website, so I don't know his thoughts on breastfeeding, but he's great with kids. Our older child nursed for 18 months, and our younger is still nursing (at almost one year). It never came up as a topic during our visits.
emergency dentist responsesrecommended with out full review July 2012
Re: [PSP] Pediatric Dentist in Park Slope?We love Dr. Alan Azrak. He is always smiling and he managed to pull two of my daughter's teeth without ANY TEARS - and she never ever realized she received a shot in her gums for pain! And she hates doctors and gets freaked by doc appts. He is magic. He is opening nice brand new offices this month in north slope. only downside is he is private so you have to submit to your insurance on your own and wont get full coverage probably. we get most covered but not all.
ISO: emergency dentist for 5 year oldWe like Dr. Lois Jackson in the Heights and Dr. Alan Azrack in the Slope. July 2012
(no subject)I can second the Azrak recommendation. My daughter thinks visiting the dentist is awesome! He even pulled her refusing-to-leave baby tooth last year without any tears - she was terrified too, especially of getting a shot - but she didn't even realize she got a shot of anesthetic in her gum - that is how good he is! he gives tacky plastic prizes freely, shows tv while treating the staff provides choices among fun flavors for everything used in kids mouths - all stuff that sounds like the opposite of "park slope ethos" - but when it comes to liking the dentist, boy that stuff works! bad news - you have to pay and then submit to insurance yourself and he is most likely above customary and reasonable rates so you will pay more than you might going to an in network doc. But if you can afford it, may be worth it to turn around a dentist fearing child. (May 2012)
(no subject)We really like Dr. Azrak, my eldest kid has never cried. (May 2012)
