Ratings for Dr. John Kershman
Mr. Kershman is a rude and stiff .He feels hard to explain the rationale for his treatment suggestions. He is less than average skills. We had a terrible experience with him. We strongly will not recommend him to anyone.
Dr.Kershman was able to restore my smile. I had a severe case of crooked teeth that took 3 years to correct. I now have a perfect smile and have been getting many compliments and feel most confident with my smile. No doubt in my mind that Dr Kershman is the best orthodontist around. Very knowledgeable and dedicated to his craft. Only negatives is that you may be waiting for a while for a simple checkup or to see the doctor, it gets very busy, the clinic is outdated, old and due for new renovations. One of the receptionists at the front is very rude...it seems to be that she hates her job which is unfortunate because it reflects onto the clients who do not need that negative energy everytime they are in the clinic. Staff on other hand is great, special thanks to Lena and Sophia.
I had searched for a longtime for an orthodontist that can make my teeth look the way I wanted. Finally I met Dr. Kershman, he is an excellent orthodontist who fixed my teeth like no other doctors could, he is very professional, with skills and knowledge to transform my teeth to perfect. His expertise was above and beyond my expectation, with the greatest technology and also he has a wonderful pleasant staff.
Dr. Kershman is the best and has helped me so much. His staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful also and the office environment is casual, welcoming and positive. The latest technology makes sure that the patient receives the best and most accurate care. The cleaning with the hygienist is the best I've ever had. Thank you Dr. Kershman, you are truly amazing!
Not helpful at all. Just cared about the money, not about his patients! Had an expander put in on a Thursday, never talked about that process, just talked about Invisalign. My child’s teeth where so crowded he never talked about having an expander put in though. Having that, was not liveable for my child with the lip pumper too. Couldn’t sleep and eat. Went through awfull days! Tried calling him and e-mailing him, put no reply. He didn’t want to be disturbed, it was his weekend. We were told if ever there’s a problem, just call the emergency number and the problem will be dealt with. Never answered the phone and the e-mail! My daughter and I are easy going people who don’t complain - but this was too much! Something had too be done. He took us later the following Monday, had the expander removed. Went to see an other Orthodontist, he did not agree with Dr Kershman’s doing, had the lip expander taken off- said it was useless! Just want to say that he’s a terrible Dr, just cares about himself and not the patients - just cares about their payments! 1/10 is my rating! (By the way, I found out I’m not the only one! His receptionist are really nice though - I feel so sorry for them! The Dental hygienist arn’t great either. When my daughter went to the other orthodontist, couldn’t believe how gentle they were. Not like at Dr Kershman’s, they were rough! I WANT THE RATING TO BE LOW (1 out of 10), but it’s changing on it’s own to a higher mark!

Dear Mr. Bentivoglio, I regret that you didn’t find my office’s services satisfactory. Would you be kind enough to inform me who your new orthodontist is? Thanks for your time. Dr. John Kershman

Dr. Kershman has been my orthodontist for more than 20 years. He is an incredible dentist, so professional, competent and always greets you with a smile. My daughter had her braces put on by Dr. Kershman when she was very young. She is now 29 years old and to this day he always asks about her. The staff which includes Ellie, the front desk folks and my very special Sophie are so personable, friendly and efficient. This dental office I am convinced is the very best in the city. I have recommended Dr. Kershman to so many of my friends. Thank you for all you do.
have been a patient of Dr. Kershman's for about 30 years and as long as he's in practice, I won't go anywhere else. Dr. Kershman runs a very efficient business whose staff treat their customers like gold, bend over backwards to be helpful and always show us how much their care for their patients. Dr. Kershman and staff take pride in doing excellent work and always take me on time. I would highly recommend Dr. Kershman to anyone who asked my opinion.
