Professional Endorsements

Dr Maryanne

"Harlem Dental Associates has referred patients to Dr. Gear for over 20 years. Her expertise in endodontics and her commitment to her patients are extraordinary. We have been so grateful for her office to see our patients in a timely manner and ensure that they return for the required restorative treatment. Furthermore, our patients are always remarking that their experience was “surprisingly easy and painless”. From pediatric emergencies on a tooth with an open apex to challenging molar retreatments, Dr. Gear’s efforts are always 110%. She delivers excellent care with true compassion." - Maryann Rirodan, DMD

Dr Michele
"One of the most difficult challenges that I face as a dental professional is helping a patient through a painful experience. I'm often asked when referring a patient to a specialist, "would you send your husband, children, or parents to this person?". The answer is yes! It is important to me that each of my patients is treated with the highest quality of care and respect. Dr. Gear is not only an incredible endodontic specialist but a profoundly caring and compassionate provider. She strives for excellence in her approach to patient education, communication and treatment. I am honored to work with her!" - Michele Semonelli, DMD

Dr Donna
"As a general practitioner, it is important to feel confident when you send your patient to a specialist that you know they are receiving the best care. The specialist is really an extension of your office. Your patients trust your office and feel comfortable with the quality of care that you deliver. The specialist must deliver exceptional care the patients have come to expect from your office; then, return the patient to you with the treatment completed properly; so you can continue with any further treatment needs. A consummate professional is how I would best describe Dr. Karen Gear. For the past 17 years, I have referred my patients who are in need of endodontic treatment to her office. Patients always feel that they received the personal care and attention they had come to expect from our office. The modern office and Dr. Gears' commitment to using the highest standards enabled our office to routinely refer patients who needed the most complex endodontic treatment." - Donna R. Williams, DDS

Dr Arnold
"Dr. Gear joined our multi-specialty group practice 2 years ago, after having her own Endodontic practice in Manhattan, NY for over 20 years. Dr. Gear has superb diagnostic and clinical skills using the latest microscope to perform her services. Apart from being very caring towards her patients, she is very professional in her delivery of care, as well as being fun to be within our group practice. We are indeed pleased to have Dr. Gear as part of the dental team." - Arnold Watkin, DDS, MScD

Dr Adam
"As a restorative dentist, the quality of care I provide is only as good as the specialist to whom I refer my patients. I fully trust that Dr Gear will not only treat my patients with great clinical skill, but will equally exhibit great compassion, honesty, and gentleness." - Adam May, DMD
