We are going to Dr. Friedman for many years now and always have a great experience. Waiting time is short and service is very professional. Result is great. Root canal, post, crown, a simple or a deep cleaning – all are done very professionally and timely. Definitely will recommend anyone to use this dentist.

I have been to quite a few dentists. Mostly in Staten Island and I have never felt more comfortable with any other dentist. I have gotten my entire family to leave their dentists and come to Dr Friedman’s office. The office is always clean and Dr. Friedman is always patient and kind with me (lets just say I get a little anxious at the dentist) he is wonderful. And so are the dental assistants. Elaine at the front desk does a wonderful job with scheduling as you are NEVER waiting. I love my dentist and his staff and would recommend them every day all day.

Has been a loyal customer of Dr. Friedman since 2008 after moving to Basking Ridge. My wife and 3 kids are also going to the same office. Never had any problem. I have a busy schedule at work but Elaine always tries her best to meet my needs and find time that is convenient f

Being like many people, I always dreaded going to the dentist. I suppose it was down to childhood and teenage memories of some not-so-pleasant experiences… Though after my first trip to Doctor Vitaly’s office, my perception of an unpleasant dentist visit changed completely. And indeed my experience was first rate. Elaine Friedman and the 21st Century staff are professional and very friendly as well. Doctor Vitaly knows his craft well and provides excellent care and treatment while possessing a very down to earth and friendly personality. I felt at ease from the first moment in the chair. My notion of the old-time dentist office and staff were erased in minutes. I was also impressed with the modern technology Dr Vitaly utilizes. I have had several visits over a 2 month period and I am extremely pleased with the work and treatment I have received from Dr Vitaly and 21st Century Dental Care.

I am so thankful to have found 21st Century Dental because all the staff make all the difference, and this sets them apart. The doctor, the clinicians, the techs and the front office are so very pleasant and helpful. All are very professional, competent and knowledgeable. I have been with them for about 5 years now, and I know that they will go above and beyond for their patients- I wish I knew them sooner!

Dentistry doesn’t get any better than this.  Friendly, helpful, and efficient office.  Dr. Friedman knows his stuff, does a thorough a complete job, provides follow up support whenever needed, and has a great sense of humor.  Despite my aversion to needles and drills, I actually enjoy my visits to Dr. Friedman.

Let me thank you Dr. Friedman for his excellent work. He never shies away from tedious or difficult dental jobs. Not only is he an outstanding professional but also a very caring person. The office takes care of emergencies and is most accommodating with scheduling and rescheduling on an as-needed basis–perfect! Thank you so much, Elaine, for your warm hospitality, so important during the dentist visits. Fiona.

Dr. Vitaly is an amazing dentist. He truly cares about his patients. He is also very gentle, which I really appreciate in a dentist, and he even makes you laugh during your visit. He has spent alot of time with me going over the work I needed done and provided me with his best plan for my dental work. He really is an amazing dentist.

I absolutely love 21st Century Dental Care. I have been coming there for over a year and I am completely satisfied in all areas. The staff is always very accommodating, helpful, professional and punctual. Whether it’s a routine cleaning or scheduling a root canal, they are always available to answer any questions or needs that I have clearly and precisely. Dr. Friedman provides the best care, has the best knowledge of how to discuss the procedures that will be done easily and is the best skilled dentist I have ever had. I give it 5 stars and would recommend to anyone I know for the best dental care!

Another outstanding experience. I broke a tooth on Saturday, they fixed it on Tuesday. Prompt, courteous service is what keeps me coming back. They are nice people to deal with, they do excellent work and don’t overcharge. It’s nice to deal with these fine people. Give them a try.

Love these guys! Been with them at least ten years… maybe even 20! There isn’t anything I have an issue with — and, I can say that I enjoy seeing Dr. Vitaly, his staff and his amazing wife who makes appointments and keeps the records straight. I take their advice very seriously, as it is seems to be in my own interest (not necessarily their interest).

Today was my second visit here. Both times, the staff was friendly and professional. My first visit was an emergency for pain; they had me call my prior dentist to email current x-rays so they wouldn’t need to take unnecessary ones. This really impressed me. The second visit was for a cleaning and a filling. I was seen immediately and was finished with everything in 40 minutes. I highly recommend 21st Century Dental.

I have been using 21st Century Dental Care for almost 10 years and have referred my husband and a coworker to this practice. Dr. Friedman and his staff are all wonderful and very caring. I go every 6 months for cleanings, and Dr. Friedman is a great dentist who has helped with routine checkups, cavities, and even a root canal. Elaine is always very accommodating when scheduling appointments and has squeezed me in that day when I was in pain or having an issue. All the dental hygienists are great . . . Kelly is my favorite 🙂

Have been going to Dr. Friedman since their opening. The Dr. Is always pleasant and extremely knowledgeable, explains any required procedure before performing it. I now bring my kids here and have had a great experience with their check ups as well. Would definitely recommend Dr. Friedman and his friendly staff.

I went in embarrassed of my lack of hygienic love for me teeth. I had multiple deads and im in need of some extreme tlc. And my dental assistant was so caring of my emotional state i felt consoled. Even though i was still distrought im going to loose some teeth. The fact she attempted to console me as a human being made me confident in coming back to this establishment. This office deserves the 5 star.

I have used Dr Friedman for a long time. I switched to him from another dentist several years ago when his practice was relatively new. I’ve had cleanings, fillings, crowns, and even root canals so I know him well. He gets 5 stars because he is intelligent, and does good work. Most importantly, he doesn’t recommend or do unnecessary work.

I’m so happy to have found Dr. Friedman. I’ve been a patient for around 4 years now, maybe more. I have never before enjoyed going to a dentist, but 21st Century has never been anything but a good experience. I’ve had a lot of work done – crowns, extractions, caps, fillings, cleaning – and it was never terrifying (and I’ve always dreaded dentists before). I highly recommend Dr. Friedman and his crew.

Outstanding Service. I have been coming to this office for many years. Dr. Friedman has been great and I’ve always had a good experience .His technical skills and knowledge are superb and his bedside manners are among the best. He takes time to explain in detail about teeth health and makes practical recommendations.The staff is friendly and always more than happy to help you achieve your best dental health. *Feb 2021 update*- Can’t say enough about 21st Century dental care- I greatly recommend this practice. I’m always in good hands. Dr Friedman is professional. Elaine is so kind and accommodating. My hygienist Kelly, keeps me laughing and my teeth in top shape.

Mark M. from Palm Beach Gardens, FL (Source: Yelp)


Came here as a new patient for a routine check-up. Dr. Friedman and his blonde dental assistant were both very welcoming, knowledgeable, and proficient. Despite my late arrival, the process was speedy and pleasant. I highly suggest coming here for your dental needs!

Francesca A. from Tottenville, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have had the worst experiences with dentists. I am so happy with this office from the front desk to the doctor. I never thought I would actually say this but for once I don’t mind going to the dentist. I am extremely happy with the work that has been done on my teeth.  The doctor has a wonderful bedside manner and is meticulous with his work.  5 stars for sure !

Philip H. from Bernardsville, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Always highly efficient.  Started exactly on time.  Swift, smooth professional operation and always with a smile.  Excellent working with insurance companies.  Never a hassle.  They are busy, so be prepared to book in advance. They send out a number of appt reminders in advance via different methods (email, texts) so you don’t forget.  I find that very helpful.

Steve G. from Basking Ridge, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Let’s face it, nobody likes having their teeth drilled, but Dr. Friedman and his staff make the experience as pleasant as possible. They are kind, professional and very caring. Plus, they are very prompt and honor their appointments without having to wait in the waiting room. I trust Dr. Friedman’s judgment and recommend his practice completely and without reservation.

After avoiding the dentist for about 5 years I was a little anxious about going but needed to be seen for an implant consultation. My options were clearly explained, Dr Friedman was thorough and is very knowledgeable. I didn’t hesitate to proceed with him. While in the process I also had other minor work done. Painless and efficient. I wouldn’t have waited 5 years to see a dentist if I had known about 21st Century . The whole staff is a pleasure to work with.

High Quality Service. I think I made the right choice. Dr. Friedman professionally addressed my dental needs and also was very considerate and concerned that I should be very comfortable through the whole process. Entire appointment took about 2 hours for tooth extraction and implant setting but I was extremely relaxed and very happy with the procedure. Dr. Friedman definitely is experienced, excellent dentist with good hands and gentle approach.
