To Our Dear Patients and Families:

We hope this note finds you well and that you have all stayed safe and healthy over the past few difficult months. As some of you have heard, Governor Cuomo announced the wonderful news that dentists across New York State may reopen their practices for full services immediately.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to our practice and getting back to work – we miss all of our patients!

Routine visits are set to resume on Wednesday, June 10th and our front desk team is beginning to reach out to all patients who have needed to delay non-urgent appointments.

The health and safety of our patients, their families and our team has always been our number one priority – and we will continue to practice state-of-the-art infection control. We remain up to date on guidance issued by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Most recently, we’ve updated our protocols in accordance with state guidance for social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In the coming days, we will update you via email about our new policies and procedures which prioritize safety for all.

Until then, we again are very excited to be coming back to work and very much look forward to seeing you all again.

Dr. Best, Dr. Ashrafi and Team

The Practice has been in existence since 1990 with the philosophy that "WE TREAT YOUR CHILD AS IF THEY WERE OUR OWN." We will not recommend any treatment that we would not advocate for our children or grandchildren.

Our primary asset is our talented and friendly staff.

Our staff has been with the Practice for many years — some, even from our very first day in November 1990.

We strive to make your child's appointment as comfortable and enjoyable as possible in the relaxed environment that we have created.

We strive to cultivate a relationship with each of our patients, which not only ensures better children's dental care but also turns a visit to the dentist into a visit between friends. Besides, we also try not to neglect our parents or caregivers as you are an integral component of a positive dental experience and a healthy mouth.

From the moment you walk in our door, our team will lead you through your appointment. Our staff and the doctors will answer any questions and making sure you and your child have a happy and memorable experience.

We are available Monday through Friday and two Saturdays a month.

See what parents are saying about our practice

My two daughters have been visiting Jed Best's practice since they were barely old enough to hold a toothbrush. They are now 15 and 18, respectively, and neither has had a cavity in all that time. Dr. Best has overseen their care with diligence, humor and professionalism, which is evident in all of the staff in the practice. I highly recommend this practice if you want no-nonsense, high-quality care, provided by professionals who take the time to get to know their patients and to listen to their concerns.

Anne O. review stars

I can't imagine a better pediatric dentist than Jed Best. So kind, so generous hearted, so skilled and supportive. My toddler has needed a lot of attention and follow up after breaking his tooth and Dr. Best has simply been the best! High integrity, very kid friendly, warm and excellent service...

Zohara T. review stars

Dr. Best and staff are amazing, caring and attentive. Our son was made to feel relaxed while examined and everyone does their best to make the experience a pleasant one with toys, games etc. I would highly recommend the office of Drs. Best and Ashrafi.
