I am happy to say that through-out each one of my different experiences and or dental issues dealing with Dr Gajjar I have encountered no pain, no discomfort and unending patience on his behalf. While I would never say I look forward to going I am much less reticent and or phobic now having had such a "game changing" experience sitting in his chair.

When I started with Dr. Strachan fifteen plus years ago, my mouth was a mess! I had advanced gum disease and tooth decay. I needed serious dental intervention.

I chose Dr. Strachan because of convenience. He was part of my dental plan and located within walking distance of my home. However, on my first visit, I felt confident that I have made the right choice. His pleasant, cheerful and professional demeanor put me at ease instantly. After the examination and X-rays, he proceeded to explain the nature and extent of my problems, and warned that I would lose my front teeth if I didn't get immediate care.

Throughout the years, Dr. Strachan performed a variety of procedures including scaling (every three months) gum surgery, root canal, wisdom teeth extractions, numerous fillings and two implant. He handled every procedure with gentleness, caring, sensitivity, and as painlessly as possible. He always administered extra anesthesia when I was nervous about the pain. Because of his expertise and efforts, my front teeth were saved, and they are stronger then ever.

Dr. Strachan's professionalism and dedication to his work were evident in his office and patient facilities. The front office and waiting room were delightful. The waiting room was clean, spacious and equipped with some of the latest magazines. The staff was always friendly, courteous and helpful. Even as a layperson, I noticed continuous upgrades in furniture, equipment, computers, diagnostic and other procedures in the patient rooms. This made me feel confidant that the latest technologies were being employed, and that I was receiving modern, up-to-date patient care. I moved from New York City and Dr. Strachan is no longer my dentist. He will be hard to replace, but I am still looking. If asked, I can honestly give Dr. Strachan my highest recommendation because I believe that any patient would be happy with his work.

Dr. Jeff C. Strachan, D.D.S.
Dr. Strachan has been our family dentist for over twenty-five years. We consider him one of the best dental practitioners in New York City. We travel from Manhattan to Brooklyn on a regular basis just to avail ourselves of his excellent dental services.
An associate to whom I repeatedly conveyed displeasure with my Dentist enthusiastically recommends Dr. Strachan. I scheduled I trial appointment shortly after. Twenty something years later, I too unhesitatingly refer Dr. Strachan to friends, family, and colleagues in search of superior dental services. Generally teeth that are not my natural teeth but look natural, prompt them to inquire. As someone whose single mother could not afford preventive dental care during my childhood, having a good dentist with whom I am very comfortable is extremely important. So, I tell people: Not only does Dr. Strachan have a professional appearance and conduct himself in a professional manner, so does his staff. Everyone is courteous; questions are not just tolerated, but also seemingly appreciated. The office is clean; the highest hygienic standards are practiced. Personally, I suffer a low tolerance for pain. Dr. Strachan, very patiently manages my anxiety, while very skillfully completing his work. Dr. Strachan believes that the work he does reflects on his practice. In other words, he takes great personal pride in the final outcome. Bottom line, I like the results and appreciate being able to smile freely.

"Dr. Strachan has been my dentist for the past ten years. I have had routine follow-up visits at least twice a year. His manner is friendly, caring and professional. I've recently had extensive cosmetic work done in my mouth and the results were magnificent. My only regret is that I didn't decide to have the work done sooner. Dr. Strachan is truly an artist and his craft. The young office staff is polite and proficient in their responsibilities. The personal appointment confirmation call are much appreciated and each member of the team stands ready tot accommodate changes in schedule whenever possible. The dental offices are bright and immaculate. It is apparent that Dr. Strachan takes personal pride in his work and his state-of-the-art surroundings. Dr. Strachan and his office team work hard to develop a personal and professional relationship with his patient. I give him the highest recommendation."

Dr. Strachan is a dedicated dentist with a solid and creative approach to excellent dental health. Any apprehensions that I may have concerning a potential dental problem soon vanish, knowing that I will receive the excellent care that I have come to expect from Dr. Strachan.

Dr. Strachan is one of the best dentists I have ever had. Since 2007, when I first began seeing him, I have had several procedures done including implants, fillings, and gum treatments. I have been extremely satisfied with all the treatments, and his personal attention to details and respect of your time is not something you see everyday in New York City!

I would recommend Dr. Strachan to anyone looking for a dentist who is personal, respectful and extremely competent.
