This was my first visit to the Art of Dentistry. Glad it will not be my last. Wonderful experience from calling for an appointment and then check in- very friendly, informative and at front desk was met with a smiling face. Jenny as my Hygienist was a great experience, She explained EVERYTHING and her technique was perfect! Dr. Dorfman-He was through and patient- did not seem to be rushed. He explained everything. The biggest thing that impressed me was that I was not being sold. My last experience with a dentist was that everytime I came in I was being sold on product or services.I highly recommend this practice.

My Dentist for the past 43 years retired, and quite frankly, had been spoiled by the staff in his office. He referred me to Dr. Dorfman.I must admit there was a little anxiety as I drove to my first visit.The staff greeted me with a smile when I arrived, and were attentive. Dr. Dorfman and his dental assistant, Kristy, were amazing !I left feeling like I had known them both for years. I highly recommend The Art of Dentistry ! Great practice, great people !

I have gone to this practice since 1980. I highly recommend it. All of my friends use these dentists as well. They are simply outstanding. They also give back to the community. One dentist participated in Operation Smile with his staff and other charities like that. He went to underprivileged countries and did dental work to help children with open cleft deformities. They are so knowledgeable, friendly and professional. For years, they’ve won the newspaper’s Best at the Beach awards which are voted on by subscribers and residents. There’s a reason for that. They are the best!!!!!

I just got back from getting a crown at art of dentistry. I was helped by Dr Shuck and Brandi. First Of all I just cracked the tooth yesterday and they were able to get me in today. Then they completed the process in about 2 hours start to finish. They were WONDERFUL !!! Kind nice thorough and funny. It was a pleasure. How often do you hear that going to a dentist. I thank Art of dentistry and most of all Dr Shuck and Brandi who are head of the class. Kudos to both of you and thank you for all your hard work

First off, check in was easy, wait time was next to nil and the services provided to me were exceptional. I have visited the dentistry on 4 occasions the past year, 2 exams, one cleaning, a molar extraction with bone graft and a follow up exam. I’ve waited until now to provide a review. The administrators, hygienists, equipment technicians and dentists have all been very professional and the results have mirrored the professionalism. I’m super satisfied with this office and all its staff.

He has been the best over the many years! I will be seeing Dr Shuck on my next visit and look forward to meeting him. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs a great dentist!

I had a horrible toothache last week, and I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Shuck. He was so nice and made me feel like the only patient he had in the office, though I could tell that they were very busy. Dr. Shuck explained that I had an abscessed tooth that would need a root canal, and he referred me to a specialist. I will be getting the rest of my treatment done by Dr. Shuck! I had a lot of questions for him, but he was kind and patient with me. He answered all of my questions and gave me a prescription for antibiotics. I feel like I have finally found the dentist that I’ve been looking for! Five stars for the five star treatment!!!

This practice is second to none. Their facility is state of the art, the staff is as friendly as they are skilled, and they are always attentive to my dental needs. During my last cleaning, I mentioned that it felt like I had a bony growth on the inside of my jaw to the hygienist. Next thing I know, Dr. Shuck made time to come do a full exam and deal with it. World class.

I am a fearful dental patient and Dr Dorfman does a wonderful job putting me at ease. I’m usually on a tight schedule & can count on being seen on time. They have all the modern technology! No more oooey goooey impressions or sharp edged X-ray films. It’s all digital now. They even do Invisalign and cosmetic work. This office can meet your entire family’s dental needs.

Best dentist ever!!Having bad luck with dentists and moving around a lot I had the pleasure of coming across Dr.Dorfman and his staff in 2015, in addition to pleasant service I decided to have a large cosmetic procedure done and it was well worth it.Dr.Dorfman changed my life!, and changed it for the better, Jenny , my hygienist is also beyond skilled and good at her job, helps that she loves it so much.I’m writing this as I visit Virginia Beach, I have driven up from Florida and made it a point to schedule a cleaning and this time living in Vermont I literally flew down just to see Dr.Forman for a repair and cleaning as I don’t trust the quality and care of other dentists.Beyond words how awesome this team is.Thank you!!!
I didn’t have a dentist so I called their practice because I was experiencing pain in my back tooth. The receptionist was very friendly and accommodating. I was able to get an appointment the next day. Everyone there has amazing customer service. The dentist does a great job as well. The entire staff is very knowledgeable and available to help you. I like that there are no hidden fees when it comes time for payment either. They have a long term customer.

I was referred to the Art of Dentistry... feeling like my Previous practice was more about the up sell than my needs. From the minute I walked through the door my needs were catered to and not once did I feel like they were trying to push anything on me that wasn’t necessary! Jennifer my Hygienist was AMAZING 🤩....

I was a patient of Dr. Horwitz for as long as I can remember. I have also seen Dr. Dorfman a few times. My dental hygienist, Lissi, was always a joy to see. The Art of Dentistry team is so friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. I recently moved to NY, so I unfortunately had to get a new dentist, as it was not reasonable to drive 8 hours for an appointment. My new dentist was so pleased to see how detailed my history was at The Art of Dentistry and to see the amazing service they've provided me over the past several years. I couldn't recommend The Art of Dentistry enough!

WOW, just WOW, never thought that I would look forward to Dentistry visits but Dr D and all staff was/is efficient yet gentle throughout the entire procedure(s) including billing. Since I am terrified by syringes, I insisted upon no local anesthetic. They initially questioned that decision but agreed to proceed with caution. The procedure was not painless BUT was amazingly tolerable. Wow, these folks are great at what they do and I am very greatful and happy to have found them. I highly recommend them to any and all looking to improve their dental health. 10 stars if I could, thank you.....much love!

This was my first visit to the Art of Dentistry. Glad it will not be my last. Wonderful experience from calling for an appointment and then check in- very friendly, informative and at front desk was met with a smiling face. Jenny as my Hygienist was a great experience, She explained EVERYTHING and her technique was perfect! Dr. Dorfman-He was through and patient- did not seem to be rushed. He explained everything. The biggest thing that impressed me was that I was not being sold. My last experience with a dentist was that everytime I came in I was being sold on product or services.I highly recommend this practice.

The service has been outstanding. They seem to be up on all the latest in dental care and procedures. I moved to The Art of Dentistry about a year ago and the care and knowledge received makes me regret not moving here long before I did.

Very clean, super friendly staff, and top notch care all the way around! I really like the fact that I have the same hygienist each visit. I have a lot of issues being taken care of, and as far as going to a dentist is concerned...this is by far the best it gets!

My Dentist for the past 43 years retired, and quite frankly, had been spoiled by the staff in his office. He referred me to Dr. Dorfman.I must admit there was a little anxiety as I drove to my first visit.The staff greeted me with a smile when I arrived, and were attentive. Dr. Dorfman and his dental assistant, Kristy, were amazing !I left feeling like I had known them both for years. I highly recommend The Art of Dentistry ! Great practice, great people !

I have gone to this practice since 1980. I highly recommend it. All of my friends use these dentists as well. They are simply outstanding. They also give back to the community. One dentist participated in Operation Smile with his staff and other charities like that. He went to underprivileged countries and did dental work to help children with open cleft deformities. They are so knowledgeable, friendly and professional. For years, they’ve won the newspaper’s Best at the Beach awards which are voted on by subscribers and residents. There’s a reason for that. They are the best!!!!!

I just got back from getting a crown at art of dentistry. I was helped by Dr Shuck and Brandi. First Of all I just cracked the tooth yesterday and they were able to get me in today. Then they completed the process in about 2 hours start to finish. They were WONDERFUL !!! Kind nice thorough and funny. It was a pleasure. How often do you hear that going to a dentist. I thank Art of dentistry and most of all Dr Shuck and Brandi who are head of the class. Kudos to both of you and thank you for all your hard work

They are wonderful, friendly, thorough and professional. Oh, and punctual!! I had an appt yesterday and my hygienist apologized for being late (she was 2 min late for our appt!). I would highly recommend this establishment.

Dr. Horwitz and Dr. Dorfman are fantastic dentists and I strongly recommend them, especially for anyone with sensitive teeth. Ms George is my dental hygienist and she is equally fantastic and together they make great team! I’ve been to another office in the area but switched to The Art of Dentistry a few years ago and haven’t looked back. If you are in the Virginia Beach area The Art of Dentistry is the place to go!

First off, check in was easy, wait time was next to nil and the services provided to me were exceptional. I have visited the dentistry on 4 occasions the past year, 2 exams, one cleaning, a molar extraction with bone graft and a follow up exam. I’ve waited until now to provide a review. The administrators, hygienists, equipment technicians and dentists have all been very professional and the results have mirrored the professionalism. I’m super satisfied with this office and all its staff.

I saw Abby, the Dental Hygienist, for a checkup. It is always nice visiting with her. Dr Horwitz was actually there, but said he was part-time and going to be retiring soon. I will miss him! He has been the best over the many years! I will be seeing Dr Shuck on my next visit and look forward to meeting him. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs a great dentist!

I had a horrible toothache last week, and I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Shuck. He was so nice and made me feel like the only patient he had in the office, though I could tell that they were very busy. Dr. Shuck explained that I had an abscessed tooth that would need a root canal, and he referred me to a specialist. I will be getting the rest of my treatment done by Dr. Shuck! I had a lot of questions for him, but he was kind and patient with me. He answered all of my questions and gave me a prescription for antibiotics. I feel like I have finally found the dentist that I’ve been looking for! Five stars for the five star treatment!!!

This practice is second to none. Their facility is state of the art, the staff is as friendly as they are skilled, and they are always attentive to my dental needs. During my last cleaning, I mentioned that it felt like I had a bony growth on the inside of my jaw to the hygienist. Next thing I know, Dr. Shuck made time to come do a full exam and deal with it. World class.

I am a fearful dental patient and Dr Dorfman does a wonderful job putting me at ease. I’m usually on a tight schedule & can count on being seen on time. They have all the modern technology! No more oooey goooey impressions or sharp edged X-ray films. It’s all digital now. They even do Invisalign and cosmetic work. This office can meet your entire family’s dental needs.

Best dentist ever!!Having bad luck with dentists and moving around a lot I had the pleasure of coming across Dr.Dorfman and his staff in 2015, in addition to pleasant service I decided to have a large cosmetic procedure done and it was well worth it.Dr.Dorfman changed my life!, and changed it for the better, Jenny , my hygienist is also beyond skilled and good at her job, helps that she loves it so much.I’m writing this as I visit Virginia Beach, I have driven up from Florida and made it a point to schedule a cleaning and this time living in Vermont I literally flew down just to see Dr.Forman for a repair and cleaning as I don’t trust the quality and care of other dentists.Beyond words how awesome this team is.Thank you!!!
I didn’t have a dentist so I called their practice because I was experiencing pain in my back tooth. The receptionist was very friendly and accommodating. I was able to get an appointment the next day. Everyone there has amazing customer service. The dentist does a great job as well. The entire staff is very knowledgeable and available to help you. I like that there are no hidden fees when it comes time for payment either. They have a long term customer.

If I could give them 10 Stars ⭐️ I MOST DEFINITELY WOULD! The level of Professionalism was TOPS and might I say once Again VERY REFRESHING to experience in this day and age. I was referred to the Art of Dentistry... feeling like my Previous practice was more about the up sell than my needs. From the minute I walked through the door my needs were catered to and not once did I feel like they were trying to push anything on me that wasn’t necessary! Jennifer my Hygienist was AMAZING 🤩....

I was a patient of Dr. Horwitz for as long as I can remember. I have also seen Dr. Dorfman a few times. My dental hygienist, Lissi, was always a joy to see. The Art of Dentistry team is so friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. I recently moved to NY, so I unfortunately had to get a new dentist, as it was not reasonable to drive 8 hours for an appointment. My new dentist was so pleased to see how detailed my history was at The Art of Dentistry and to see the amazing service they've provided me over the past several years. I couldn't recommend The Art of Dentistry enough!

WOW, just WOW, never thought that I would look forward to Dentistry visits but Dr D and all staff was/is efficient yet gentle throughout the entire procedure(s) including billing. Since I am terrified by syringes, I insisted upon no local anesthetic. They initially questioned that decision but agreed to proceed with caution. The procedure was not painless BUT was amazingly tolerable. Wow, these folks are great at what they do and I am very greatful and happy to have found them. I highly recommend them to any and all looking to improve their dental health. 10 stars if I could, thank you.....much love!

He is professional and is great with patient interaction. I also have had no problems with the staff in the office. My hygienist is great, and all of the front office staff have been accommodating and helpful as well. I also appreciate all of the extra measures they are taking during this pandemic to ensure patients are safe.

Dr. Dorfman never fails to disappoint with his explanations which are concise and in layman's terms. Highly recommend this team.
