“Dr. Michael Rechter is no doubt the BEST dentist I have ever been to.  I am a general dentist in Massachusetts, yet my own dental phobias have kept me from visiting the dentist and having my own teeth fixed.  My teeth feel great and they look great.  No pain, great service and a phenomenal dentist.  I would recommend to everyone in the Long Island area to put their fears on hold and visit my dentist, Dr. Michael Rechter.  Thanks a lot, Mike.” —Dr. David I.

Patient Reviews for Dr. Rechter

“After years of living with a subpar smile, I finally decided to get the cosmetic dental work I had always wanted. The moment I walked in the office I knew it was a good fit. He patiently talked through all of my concerns and answered all of my questions. It was clear that dentistry is not only Dr. Rechter’s profession, but also a passion of his and he easily became my choice of who to trust with perfecting my smile. Given the extent of the work I had done, I had frequent appointments that I actually looked forward to (it’s not often you hear of someone looking forward to their dentist appointment).

I could not have made a smarter decision. My smile came out better than I could have hoped. Dr. Rechter, and the Dentists at Long Island Dental Excellence really put some thought into perfecting my smile and it shows. This is the first time in my life where I actually smile for pictures.” —Anthony Pinello, Rockville Centre

“Thanks for the great work you did on my veneers. The work you did was life changing. I have to say that the experience was an excellent one. It was hard to believe the difference it made – not just in my appearance but also in my confidence levels. For years I have been very uncomfortable in taking photographs or even in public situations and you changed all that. I can’t thank you enough.

It’s odd to say but you made ‘going to the dentist’ a pleasure and that is definitely a talent that not everyone possesses. The results are amazing. Thanks for the new start and for making the whole experience seem so easy and feel so comfortable.” —Brian Troy, Long Beach

“Thank you for making me smile again without my hand in front of my mouth. My own teeth never looked this good!” —Roberta Mercurio, Flight Operations Manager, Lynbrook, NY

“I am absolutely in Dr Rechter’s debt for restoring my smile and oral health and enthusiastically endorse anyone putting themselves under his care” —Ellery Matthews. College Administrator, Rockville Centre, NY

“I just wanted to thank you for the AMAZING work that you did on my teeth. You actually made coming into the office a pleasurable experience. Your staff is friendly and professional and caring. My teeth look amazing, and I am sooo pleased!!! Thank you so much.” —Dr. Jacqueline Agresta, Social Worker, Rockville Centre, NY

“Michael, I just want to thank you for taking on my case and delivering an exceptional result. I know I can be a difficult patient to deal with, but you truly exceeded my expectations. My case was a large one that we had talked about for years and never once did you ever rush me to do anything I was not comfortable with. Looking back, I don’t know why I waited so long” —Bill Luther. General Contractor, Massapequa Park, NY

“No one beats Dr. Rechter and his amazing staff at Long Island Dental Excellence!! From the day I walked in there they all treated me like family. Dr. Rechter was able to make my lifelong dream come true. He gave me an amazing smile I could be proud of. I love how special they have all made me feel, as if I was their only patient. I highly recommend them!!” — Christina V., Oceanside

“Well, once again, I am glad I listened to my wife! She kept raving about this new dental ‘family’ she found and was telling me ‘this was the best dental experience I ever had!’ and now I see why. Dr. Rechter and the entire staff at L.I. Dental Excellence are truly professional and caring. I never knew how hi-tech dentistry could get, but they seem to have it all covered!” — Peter C., Malverne

“Dr. Rechter is an incredible dentist and his entire office staff is so wonderful. They are so caring, sincere and competent and go above and beyond for all their patients.” — Patty B., Garden City

“In a world where the mundane and trite have become the benchmarks by which we measure professional competence; where exceeding to the lowest common denominator is the hallmark of so many institutions; and, courtesy, respect and a truly heartfelt concern for another’s well being have all but become extinct; it is a sincere joy to be in the hands of the extraordinary professionals at Long Island Dental Excellence. They are excellence (in its truest and most profound sense) personified.” — Frank V., Hempstead

“As usual, my wife and I were extremely impressed by the quality of service and the professionalism in this office. Dr. Michael Rechter is the Best. This is a state of the art office. The entire staff is always very nice and makes us feel like we are a part of their family. I highly recommend Long Island Dental Excellence.” — Brian E., Franklin Square

“It is a pleasure walking into a Doctor’s office and being treated immediately and efficiently. The staff is very professional and ‘on the ball’. The Doctor is very informative as to what has to be done and takes the time to educate me what is going on with my teeth and the procedure which is being done. He is patient and willing to make sure I understand everything. The office is open, bright and clean. Finally, a dentist where I don’t feel I have to go holding my mother’s hand.” — John V., Merrick

“Long Island Dental Excellence is the appropriate name. I was made very comfortable right away from the staff. The dentist is wonderful! My parents used Dr. Rechter several years ago touting what a great dentist he is; knows his stuff and does perfect work… I can see why and now I’m his new patient.” — Christina M., Merrick
