STAY AWAY...FAR FAR AWAY!!!
Absolutely disgusting!!! My son has been going to a dentist his entire life since he was a toddler, every 6 months, never had a single dental issue, same as his sister and mother and even some aunts and uncles. His cleanings always included fluoride treatments, and sometimes dental sealants. Not once did he ever have a single issue at any checkup, nothing, zero! He is now 19 and has taken it upon himself to schedule and keep up with his own dental appointments. Enter this place 😡. Apparently, in the last six months, my son has suddenly developed some major dental issues...which require: 1. An up charge on his regular cleaning for “deep cleaning” 😳 2. A mysterious cavity which required a special filling 😒 3. Special laser treatment of the cavity 🤔 4. Upcoming gum work for his newly developed gum disease 🙄 By the time I intervened, the bill was $425 and climbing, which was on top of insurance, and not counting the “gum disease” treatments. They see a new, young, unsuspecting patient and they just keep up selling until they hit the limit. Well guess what, they just hit the freakin’ jackpot! Look for my upcoming reviews on FB, yelp, Google, BBB and more 😃

Courteous, Professional, Skilled, and Knowledgable doctor and staff
Dr Harvey Shiffman and his staff are courteous, professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Dr Shiffman is experienced, skilled and knowledgeable. He will take the time to answer any questions or concerns. His office is beautiful , clean, comfortable, and is equipped with modern equipment. There are many good dentists in the area. I have been to many good dentists and a few great dentists over the years. I believe Dr Harvey Shiffman is a great dentist. You can find doctors who may offer some dental services for a lower price, however, his prices are reasonable and customary for his skill and experience. I recommend him to my friends and family.

I unfortunately had a very bad experience with Dr Shiffman. First he made me pay upfront for the 2 bridges .Next he wanted me to do the same for my root canal which I found out I needed when he started the bridge. I left without paying as I was coming back the next day and would pay then.I actually got a phone call in the parking lot from a nurse asking me if I had left the building and as I turned around there was another nurse in the parking lot who had come out to get me. WOW!!! and this is after I had paid for the bridges that weren't done yet. After all this money I actually asked for 2 extra little brushes in my GOODY BAG to which the nurse whispered in my ear "we are only allowed to give 2 but I put an extra 2 in your bag." Finally the root canal has gone bad and had to be redone by a wonderful dentist. I had an infection that lasted 3 weeks with major antibiotics. SOOO I have never written a review but felt compelled to this time... there are many good dentists in florida... he is not one of them.

plenty of good dentists in florida.. he is not one
I had a very bad experience with Dr Shiffman. I had to paid for the entire job up front and then was very unhappy with the results . I even had to get his root canal redone by another dentist as it caused a very bad infection . I went from what I think was one of the worst dentists to now a wonderful one.. I have never written a review but felt compelled to as I could never recommend him.

A constant staff turnover
As a patient, every time I go into his office he has different stuff there he is like a complete drill sergeant not a nice persona at all. Always has new staff that is Completely inexperienced. Has no patience for anyone! I felt extremely uncomfortable being in the chair listening to him down talk to his staff I will never go back there again the man is completely evil and not a nice person! I do feel sorry for all of his staff! And I wouldn’t let him touch me with a 10 foot pole I was afraid if I didn’t do the right command from him that he would Hurt me as a patient for chair side manner

Very happy patient
I have been Dr.Shiffman's patient for over 5 years. I am 86 years and he tries very hard to keep the teeth that I have. I think the laser is great and i wish they had it when i was young. Melissa and the staff are always nice to me, i get cold so they have a blanket ready. I tell all my friends and family to go see them.

Harvey Shiffman makes me hate going to the dentist even more so.
I'm not the kind of person to tell people not to go to Boynton Laser Dental Center; instead, I'll tell you about my experience. April 26th, 2016 I went in for a "consultation" of the x-rays the lady took my first visit. They put me in a office room and told me I needed $9576.50 worth of work done to my teeth. I know I have teeth problems, but $9576.50 worth of problems at 29 years old? I literally walked out of the building laughing. I than went home and found a different dentist who I saw today May 4th, 2016. Turns out I only have three REAL cavities and I'm getting fitted for a night guard. Also, the night guard is only costing $300.00 and Harvey Shiffman was charging me $562.50. If I have any advise to give anyone going to see this dentist It would be to go find yourself an HONEST dentist. What a Scam Artist. Shameful!!

DON'T WALK, RUN !!!
This doctor solicited me to have EXTENSIVE ($10,000) work, and when EACH AND EVERY crown, root canal and bridge he did for me FAILED (I have two dentists to attest to that) he denied promises he made to me at the BEGINNING of our treatment, falsified any and all liability, and was absolutely appalling! ALL WORK DONE BY THIS DENTIST HAD TO BE REDONE, and I incurred $30,000 (for 5 implants) due to his poor root canal work, crown and bridge work with poor edges which cause infections underneath, and a lot of suffering to boot. This is not just a bad doctor, but a criminally negligent one. He "sells" his laser treatments to his patients while GETTING PAID BY THE LASER COMPANY at the same time!

I just got back from my cleaning at Dr Shiffman's office and I don't think my teeth have ever felt cleaner! The appointment was quick and painless, the staff was extremely professional and friendly, and office is clean and top notch! I couldn't have been happier with my experience there!
