"She considered every step along the way and how it would bring the best possible long-term result"
5 50Reviewed 14 Jun 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Braces
After a lifetime of wanting braces, I finally stepped up to the plate in my late 50s. After doing my research, I was referred to Dr. Katz and never looked back.

She is fantastic, professional and caring about all the details that go into a complicated case. She patiently explained every step of the way and answered any question or concern I had along the way. She considered every step along the way and how it would bring the best possible long-term result.

I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who has ever wanted or needed braces. She is terrific. Thrilled to have beautiful straight teeth.

Pleasant, welcoming and always accommodating.

"I would rate every aspect of the treatment 5 stars"
5 50Reviewed 12 Sep 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Braces
I just finished my orthodontic treatment today. I would rate every aspect of the treatment 5 stars. From day one, me being nervous about getting braces at 21, 22 and non-stop smiling, Doctor Katz and Esther did everything they could to make my treatment as smooth as possible. I felt like I knew what was going on at each stage and if I needed anything urgent they were a phone call away. I am incredibly grateful and lucky to have found this clinic.

10/10. Never waited longer than the time I needed to be there. Everything was clean. Everyone was helpful.

"Most impressive service received"
5 50Reviewed 28 Jul 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Orthodontic Retainer
My son's bottom retainer broke during our trip to Israel. This was alarming, and we had no idea what to do. The family orthodontist back in the United States referred us to Dr. Katz. Dr. Katz provided us with her personal phone number and rescheduled her entire day to fit in my son in a matter of hours. Most impressively, she was able to make my son a suck down invisible retainer and have it ready THE SAME DAY!

Not ever have I seen such dedicated and friendly professionals as Dr. Katz and Esther (her secretary). Esther, in particular, was funny, outgoing, and offered us water when we arrived at Dr. Katz's office. Dr. Katz is kind and efficient. Dr. Katz, you rock!

Excellent experience, could not have gone any better. We were greeted with smiles and cold water. Perfect appliance made as well.

"I was very happy with the result"
5 50Reviewed 26 Jul 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Orthodontic Retainer,Braces,Home Whitening Kits
I had an orthodontic consultation, braces, an orthodontic retainer, and teeth whitening home treatment. I was really impressed with the consultation when Dr. Katz had drawn up the explanation of how the braces would change my teeth and overall appearance. I only needed to wear the braces for a year until my teeth were perfectly straightened out (I thought I would need much more) and I was very happy with the result! Dr. Katz explained the rationale for every procedure and additions like elastic bands and answered all my questions patiently. I had an excellent experience with Dr. Katz and with Esther as well.

I was referred to this clinic by my dentist. The clinic was always well kept and clean, with a friendly waiting area and a large, open treatment area. Dr. Katz and Esther are very friendly and make all their patients feel welcome and comfortable.

"She is an absolute professional"
5 50Reviewed 18 May 2017 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Orthodontist Consultation,Braces,Orthodontic Retainer
I have a rare blood condition that played havoc with my gums and teeth before I was finally diagnosed and treated. Everything moved around. My teeth had undergone 5 years of Orthodontia when I was in my teens and they were a mess. I was desperate for help. Dr. Katz got my teeth straightened out so I finally looked great. Then, later I lost a front tooth. Dr. Katz consulted and worked outside the box to find a solution. She is an absolute professional.

Everything about Dr. Katz and her clinic is first class. She sees you on time, she never overcharges, and most of all, she really cares! Her secretary is fantastic!

"My experience with Dr. Katz was nothing but fantastic."
5 50Reviewed 23 Mar 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Orthodontist Consultation
My treatment ended early which I was delighted about, and the results are more than I could have imagined.
I must also mention that Dr. Katz truly went above and beyond her call of duty at one point when she actually came to my home to carry out a minor adjustment when getting to the clinic was very difficult for me!

I cannot imagine any patient of Dr. Katz having even one complaint. She is scrupulously honest, highly professional and experienced. She is also devoted to her work and her practice which I always found a happy and welcoming place to be.

I will definitely be returning with my children when their time comes!

My experience with Dr. Katz was nothing but fantastic. Being a 28 year old Mum - braces weren't my first fashion choice. However Dr. Katz eased my anticipation and deliberation and all went ahead. Each appointment was bang on time (except for when I was late...sorry Dr.Katz) and the clinics efficiency and positive vibe must be credited to the fantastic Esther who always works with a smile, to keep everything ship shape.

Here's wishing you much continued happiness with your glowing smile! All the best, Dr. Katz

Dr Debra Katz

Job Title:
  Orthodontist
Biography:
Dr. Debra Katz grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. As a young child, she was always involved in some kind of art – painting, drawing, pottery and sculpture, jewelry making, etc. Combining that with her love of the sciences and her desire to help people she decided to pursue a career in dentistry, receiving her doctorate in dentistry from Columbia University in New York. After practicing general dentistry for many years in Los Angeles, Dr. Katz made aliyah and returned to school, completing another three and a half years of orthodontic education at Hadassah Dental School in Jerusalem. Although there is no continuing education requirement for maintaining a dental license in Israel, Dr. Katz feels very strongly about keeping up with the latest research and technology and participates in many lectures and hands-on courses, both as a lecturer and a participant. She regularly attends international conferences and always finds time to read the latest professional journals. In addition to being a member of the Israel Orthodontic Society, Dr. Katz also maintains membership in the American Association of Orthodontists and the World Federation of Orthodontists. Although Dr. Katz is highly dedicated to orthodontics in general, and her patients in particular, she is also very dedicated to her family. Married, with three children, Dr. Katz and her family love to spend their free time exploring the beautiful outdoors of our gorgeous country. You may also see Dr. Katz at the opera, a favorite pastime. At home, Dr. Katz loves to express her artistic abilities with her unique scrapbook creations and in the kitchen with her amazing edible creations. Her family thinks she’s just the best – and they are even patients of hers!

Biography:
Shalom! I’m Esther and I’m the “everything other than the doctor” at Dr. Katz’s Jerusalem practice since its inception. I’m the voice at the end of the phone scheduling your appointments, and the face that greets you as you enter our clinic. I’ll help you with your payments and I’ll hopefully answer any questions you might have. I also organize Dr. Katz’s extensive communication, both written and verbal, with your dentist and other health professionals to better coordinate your orthodontic care and your other health concerns. If I don’t answer the phone on the first ring it may mean that I’m in the lab preparing the labwork for the day or cleaning instruments. Or, I may even be found assisting Dr. Katz when she needs an extra set of hands. But what I enjoy most about my job is my interaction with the wide range of patients that we treat. I really enjoy seeing how happy our patients are with their end results! And, I’m glad to be a part of that. I’ve been living in Jerusalem for the last 25 years, having made aliyah with my husband and three children from New Jersey (Can you tell from my accent?!) I have a bachelor’s degree from Queens College in New York. Prior to working in orthodontics I was a ganenet (early education teacher) for many years which I really enjoyed. I find it very satisfying and rewarding working with children and adults. And, I really enjoy working with Dr. Katz. Together we will try to make your visit to our office as pleasant as possible.
