Barry H. from Livingston, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Every six months I take a a 45 minute ride on the train from Millburn NJ and than a cab from Penn Station to Central Park Dental to have my teeth cleaned. The staff is very friendly and Dr Vogel is great. He has a very light touch during his exam. He has saved a number of my teeth by staying ahead of the problems.. I strongly recommend the Office.

I am not one who loves going to the Dentist, but, I recently went in for a cleaning and a filling and all I can say is it was a great experience. The cleaning was more than thorough, the Hygienist did a fantastic job. The filling was smooth and painless. This place is as good as it gets! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and I felt very cared for. I am looking forward to my next cleaning! Who looks forward to tooth care? I do now!

Anthony M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Going to Central Park West Dental is as good of an experience one can have going to a Dental office. Shari and Heidi at the front desks are friendly and fun! They are the icing on the cake of a wonderfully professional office. Dr. Vogel couldn’t be nicer and great at his job. His technicians are gentle and caring with the patients and also do a great job. If you are searching for a fine Dental practice, look no further! This is the one. I am not much of a patron of any dental office however I actually look forward to my dental appointments. And do have your paperwork already filled out and handed to you in a pre-addressed envelope is VERY appreciated!

Nancy S. from Upper West Side, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Highly Recommend!  I have super sensitive teeth and gum disease and used to dread my cleanings until I started having Briana do them.  I don’t know how she does it but I have absolutely no pain during my cleanings!  She’s extremely careful yet thorough so my teeth always feel and look awesome when she’s done.  I can’t recommend her highly enough. Dr. Vogel is great and the office staff is really friendly and helpful too!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Shipper then Dr. Vogel for over 30 years (even tho I no longer live in the neighborhood) for all the reasons already given here. A trip to the dentist here is more like a visit to an old friend than an ordeal, even if you’re getting root canal! But it’s the willingness to go above and beyond when you really need it that, yep, sets them above and beyond. A few day after said root canal , when I was still is severe pain, Dr. Vogel returned my call on a weekend evening to give me a script for anti-b which cleared it right up. Recently, a few days before my regular annual appointment, I went to the ER because the side of my face+neck suddenly swelled up (it took all night to subside) The very baby-faced young Resident says “I really don’t know what that could be.” …Seriously?… 5hrs later the Attending gives me a tentative diagnosis, Parotinitis, antibiotics and has me see an ear-nose-throat doc. The ENT doc barely looks at me, diagnoses Sialadenitis and tells me I need to see a head+neck doc. What the WHA!? Pretty well rattled and a full week before the H+N doc could see me, I take a long shot and asked Dr. Vogel for an opinion. He listened to what happened, takes a look for himself and even tho it’s not his field of expertise, talks to me about the condition (it’s a blockage of a duct that causes saliva to back up around the gland, in my case mild infection + dry mouth because I had a head cold and couldn’t breath at night + dehydration in the summer heat) He reassured me that tho it looks horrible when it happens (as hubby tells it, it looked like the “Alien baby” was going to burst out of my neck) it was in itself not a dangerous condition and encouraged me to keep my appt with the H+N doc. I’ve since gotten a clean bill of health, but because of the extra five minutes Dr. Vogel gave me, I stopped freaking out and was able to sleep for that week before my appt. Doc, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was at Dr. Vogel’s yesterday for my biannual cleaning/check-up and it was such a great experience, that I felt compelled to write a review. I know going to the dentist is not anyones favorite activity, but Dr. Vogel’s office is as good as a dentist;s office can get! The office is in a great location (close to subway and crosstown bus), is extremely clean, and very comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes from my appointment time (which is rare in NYC). The examining rooms are very comfortable and every room has a flat screen TV mounted on the wall so you can watch/listen to your favorite show while having your teeth cleaned! Stephanie, my hygienist is amazing. After getting you set up in the chair with a plush pillow behind your head/neck, she begins working on your teeth. She is extremely gentle and is always making sure you are ok/comfortable. She is also extremely thorough, taking as much time as she needs to make sure your teeth are pristine. By the time I leave, my mouth feels great and my teeth feel much cleaner and even appear to be whiter! Dr. Vogel is fabulous as well. He is extremely personable and never rushes through the appointment (another rarity for NY doctors). He has always taken the time to listen to all of my concerns and explain to me all of my options (whether it be considering veneers/whitening or benefits/risks of keeping my wisdom teeth, etc). He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and my teeth have been healthier since switching to this office two years ago. If anyone is looking for a dentist in NY, this is really the place to go….you may not even hate going to the dentist anymore!

Liz M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I rarely post reviews but this one is well deserved. If you want the best of the best, I would tell you to go to Central Park West Dental. You will immediately find this to be a cutting edge practice. Incredibly up-to-date and one that I would travel hours for. I’m fairly young but had quite a bit of dental work to be done. Dr. Vogel is a perfectionist and delivers top of the line work. I sincerely believe he cares as much about your teeth as you do. He takes time …you will not be herded out like cattle. This is a rare find. I would also like to say a very special thanks to every employee at the practice. Good people make a good business. I know I’m leaving folks out, apologies in advance, a huge thanks to Diomarys, Cathy, Jazmin and of course the lovely Heidi and Shari. You all go above and beyond.

Thomas R. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr Vogel for several years now. Honestly the entire practice could not be any better with skilled dentistry, technicians, including amazing, friendly & efficient staff, Heidi & Shari. Your emails will be responded to before you write them or close to it. Man, I love those two. I have had several procedures, from crown work, to whitening & invisalign under the great care of Dr Vogel. In 15 or so months I went from very yellow, crooked teeth my entire life, & now at 66 I have been given the gift of straight white teeth. It would have never happened without them. First time I ever enjoy going to the dentist without any anxiety. If you are looking for a new dental practice & want to experience great care & service this is the place to go.

Lee C. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vogel has been my dentist for the past 15 years. The entire practice is exceptional from the front office to the technicians and to Dr. Vogel. They have state of the art equipment to monitor all current and upcoming dental conditions. Equally as important to me is the kindness of the staff. I am a very nervous dental patient and everyone does their best to make comfortable. I have several friends who use this practice. I highly recommend it!!

Christopher J. from Flatiron, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I was walking south on Central Park West looking for a new dentist and I came across CPW Dental. Heidi who works the front desk was very helpful and she answered all of my questions. I proceeded to leave and I interviewed a handful of other Dentists Front Desk personnel in the area and my gut told me to set up an appointment with CPW Dental. The entire team is very professional and Dr. Vogel was thorough, professional, and most importantly he did not rush me and he answered all of my questions. This was my first visit, my other Dentist I had for over 15 years, however he is on Long Island and I wanted a local dentist. This practice comes with my highest regard.

Edwin G. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist in NYC. I come from a family of plenty of dentists. Unfortunately, they all live far from NYC. I used to wait until I visit one of them because I thought a lot of dentists in NY just want your money, and don’t really care to much about your dental, or doing whatever they can to help you and guide you to keep your teeth healthy. That all changed when I visit this office. I no longer have to wait for a trip to my family to feel my teeth are in good hands. I’ve been visiting this office for years now. I recommend this office to every person I know. Friends have reached out to me because they are thankful I recommended it.

Françoise G. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


This is by far the best dental practice I’ve been to during the 11 years I’ve been living in Manhattan. By using state-of-the-art equipment and a close-up video apparatus, Drs. Vogel and Shipper, and hygienist, Briana, made it their mission to resolve whatever exposed- nerve issues were occuring in my back teeth. My previous doctor could never figure out the problem! But this place did and I’m once again eating in peace. CPW Dental is the best. And the office staff is so attentive and warm, it’s unbelievable.

S J. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


First visit- After I’ve been told by a student at NYU school of Dentistry that they would have to pull out a tooth I decided to look for a dentist who could give me a second opinion. I search yelp and came across very good reviews for Central Park West Dental and Dr. Vogel. I quickly made an appointment.. The day came and I went to the office. The staff was so friendly and greets you with a smile. They set me into a room and got me ready for Vogel. He came in and introduced himself and right away he wanted to know what was going on and how he can help. I began to tell him and he took an x-ray of my tooth. He explained there was no reason why the school would tell me they had to pull my tooth, but he can save it. I just needed a root canal and a crown. He referred me to a endodontist first to take care of the root canal and then I made an appointment to come back for the crown. Long story short everything with the root canal went well and I got my crown. I normally would feel pain when I get novacaine but Dr. Vogel was very gentle. He explained to me everything that was going on and assured me that the crown came out well. He just had to adjust it a bit. I was very grateful I didn’t lose my tooth and Vogel was able to save it for me. I would refer anyone to see him if you have a serious problem. Second Visit- Its 5 months later after I had an successful root canal but all of a sudden I started to have pain. I didn’t know what to do and I was about to go away on vacation. I knew I couldn’t deal with my tooth hurting and be able to enjoy myself on my trip, so I made the call to Dr. Vogel’s office for help once again. I thought it was the same tooth that was worked on but Vogel checked and didn’t think it was the same tooth…I was sent to the endodontist as well for him to check it out as well. Dr. Bui didn’t see anything either. A few days has past and it turned out my upper tooth was the guilty source of my pain. So Dr. Vogel checked and told me I would need another root canal…not that I wanted to spend a lot of money right before going to Las Vegas, but what choice did I have…I made the appointment and he got to work. This time he did the root canal for me, pain free which I loved. He put in a temporary filling and told me I would have to come back for the final filling which I did. I felt so much better when it was done. He just told me I would have to come back down the line for a crown but for right now I was ok to enjoy myself on vacation. (which I did). Now I just have to go back for a cleaning and I should be good. I’m 100% satisfied with all my treatments I have had so far.

Jan Z. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


All of my coworkers go to this dentist – Dr. Vogel and his assistants are very professional, experienced, and courteous. I have recommended several friends to go here as well. The office is conveniently located near a subway stop, is clean, and is easy to find. On my first visit, I was a little off-put because there wasn’t someone at the front desk and I was waiting around for a while. But when I actually went in to be examined, Dr. Vogel did a great job and also had high-tech equipment – very up to standard and beyond. The woman who cleaned my teeth both times so far was accommodating and very personable. Very caring and very meticulous in her work. I left feeling confident that my teeth were cared for to the best possible standard and will gladly recommend this dentist office to anyone who asks.

Sophia Y. from Hoboken, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Oh my goodness I am in love with this practice! I moved to New York a little over a year ago, and have been putting off finding a dentist because at 23 years of age, yes, I still cry like a baby every time I’m in that chair. Everyone at work recommended this place to me, and I just had my first exam. Oral cancer screening, thorough xrays and pictures taken, and a cleaning. I won’t tell you how many cavities they found (bring on the tears when they fill them in!!), but I will say that every single person at CPW Dental is so friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable! Puts my old dentist to shame. I highly recommend this place.

Stephen F. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Three days ago, I was suffering from incredible mouth pain. A shard of popcorn kernel had irritated my gum, and it had become infected and inflamed. I called Central Park West Dental at 6 pm, and received a return call from Dr. Vogel that same evening. He assured me that he would see me the following day, and gave me a few tips for how to ease the pain in the meantime. The next day, I had an appointment at 10:30 am; Dr. Vogel looked at the issue, helped provide some temporary relief, and prescribed me the needed antibiotics and pain killers. Throughout the visit, he was his typical kind, informative, and reassuring self. Three days later I’m on the mend! I would highly recommend Central Park West Dental – both for regular checkups and emergency needs. I’ve been a Yelp member for years but this is the first time I’ve actually wanted to review a business myself. I’m just that grateful.

Reuben S. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I was having some issues with a tooth causing some discomfort and my regular dentist in Long Island was on vacation…what to do in this nebulous world of oral care providers? I hopped on Yelp and was quite encouraged by the reviews I saw for Dr. Vogel. Called to book an appointment, explained what was going on, and they were able to get me in that day. I met Dr. Vogel and he was a real pleasure – gave me all the time in the world, explained everything that he was looking at and checking on, and summed up his recommendation clearly, always checking with me that I was ok with what he was doing. The office was small but well appointed, the equipment seemed top of the line, the chair was super-comfortable, and everyone there was extremely sweet and friendly. I’d fully recommend Dr. Vogel, your teeth are in good hands!

Jason C. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Friendly, curteous, professional, enthusiastic, fast. Really, about as good an experience at a dental offices as I could imagine. Taking a recommendation from a (non-yelp) friend, I went to Dr. Vogel after a long hiatus from professional dental care, and fortunately there was nothing major needed. But after the quick and guilt-free inspection, photos and xrays, and cleaning, I should have no problem keeping my 6 months schedule in the future. Oh, and people are curious about prices. I paid $410 for a cleaning, initial inspection by the dentist, and full set of x-rays (this is all pre-insurance.) To be honest, I have no idea how this compares with other dentists.

John Yun (Source: Google)


Dr. Vogel was very thorough with 2 separate issues I had with my teeth: Replacing an old crown and fixing a chipped tooth. His staff both the office and his assistants were professional, very friendly, and skillful. His office is very clean and my experiences in all my visits have been pleasant. They were also very flexible with scheduling. Highly recommended if you want to get the job done right in a comfortable environment with the right people.

Jill M. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vogel uses the most advanced methods that are safe and available for treatment, always shares his recommendations for preventive dental care. However, you make the decision and never feel forced to comply. His experience speaks volumes. The entire staff is also very pleasant and you get excellent service in my opinion.

Jim R. from Leonia, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I can’t recommend Central Park West Dental highly enough. Dr. Shipper is not only a knowledgable, seasoned, talented professional, he’s also a caring and thoughtful health provider who takes a genuine interest in his patients. I’ve had limited experience with Dr. Vogel, but was very pleased with the work he did. The technicians and administrative staff are skilled, friendly, and helpful. When my wife needed a dentist, I recommended Dr. Shipper, and she is equally enthusiastic. Visiting the dentist is never fun, but CPWD makes it as pleasant as possible.

Dr. Robert F. S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


‘What a team! David Shipper, Howard Vogel, and Briana are the most competent and compassionate set of dental players. Recently these three got me through a rough patch and I am most appreciative. I’ve been with David since 1980 and the newer Howard and Briana have been welcome additions to the staff. Again, what a team!” I wrote this about a year ago and have to add this. The team continues its skilled and considerate care; I trust them completely. A congenial staff joins them: Heidi, Shari, and Diomarys are the perfect complement to a star lineup.

Kathy B. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I approached with fear and trepidation – I had previously had a very bad experience with another dental practice. The minute I made the appointment, I felt more comfortable. The staff is very friendly, helpful, organized and efficient. But Dr. Vogel – I CAN’T PRAISE HIM ENOUGH! He did a fantastic job. A real master of the mouth. I recommend Dr. Vogel and his practice without reservation.

Robert S. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Honestly, the BEST! I have been a patient here for 18 years or so and have never had anything but very professional, friendly and courteous experiences with Dr. Shipper and Dr. Vogel. They are extremely knowledgeable, caring and truly top of the line doctors. I have sent colleagues and friends over the years, and everyone has been just as pleased!

Robin O. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I walked into Dr. Vogel’s office in terrible shape with incomplete and shoddy dental work. A colleague at ABC News referred me to Dr. Vogel with the assurance that he could fix my very upsetting dental issues. It took several years, and lots of tears to straighten out the problems and stabilize my bite. He began by putting me at ease, and was very clear about the path he would take. First, he wanted me to look better. So instead of patching me up in the back teeth, he started with the smile. His approach lifted my confidence in myself immediately. By the third visit, I was already seeing a marked difference in my appearance. Once I looked a little better, he started to stabilize the bite etc. Cosmetically, he has done an amazing job giving me a great smile and establishing my trust in dentistry again. The office is very comfortable in an elegant building. The staff is very friendly and always affable and wlelcoming. Dr. Shipper is a lovely man as well who has taught his nephew well in the art of compassion and understanding of a patient’s needs. They have a very calm and steady way of solving some very complex dental problems. I now feel like I have expensive pearls as teeth and many people ask me who my dentist is. I was very lucky to have found Dr. Vogel who approaches a dental issue with both heart, tenacity, careful caution and professionalism. I highly recommend Central Park West Dental. All I know is I walk out of there smiling every time. Thank you to both Doctors and their incredible staff. I can safely say you changed my life or rather made it all the better.

Stephanie H. from Short Hills, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Great experience….I am not the best dental patient, but Dr Vogel and his staff really made my visit “painless”.  Dr Vogel had a light touch and made me feel very comfortable during treatment.  Their office seemed to have the latest technology and equipment.  I felt very confident with my care and highly recommend this office to any one in need of a great dentist.

Francesco L. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had to rush to treat a severe pain, a tooth had broken the night before, and based on my wifes recommendation, who just few days had a similar problem I went to visit Dr. Vogel. All I can say in all honesty is that I dont like dentists much, who does?, and the experience I had with Dr. Vogel was by far the best I ever had. He might seem young, but certainly knows what he is doing. There was a sense of confidence and precision to his work, he knew what he was doing and made me comfortable about it. In the end the problem was solved perfectly. 5 months later now my tooth is still in perfect order, no pain and nothing else. I can only strongly recommend Dr. Vogel. hoooo did I mention that after 3 days he called me to ask how how the tooth and the pain was. I was looking today for option to get my teeth finally straightened up, and just remembered to write this. I

I honestly don’t see how there could be a better dentist and staff in Manhattan. Top notch care, great communication, and a warm bedside manner. I always leave CPW Dental knowing my mouth is in the best possible shape. From the front desk to the hygienists to Dr. Vogel himself, everyone provides the best possible service with a great attitude to boot.

Judith S. from Garrison, NY (Source: Yelp)


For all those people living on the upper west side and have teeth or need teeth I’m urging you to make an appointment at CPWD. Dr. Shipper and Dr. Vogel will take expert care of you. Everyone on the staff will treat you with loving care. I have been with them for more than 40 years, and have not had a bad experience. I’m happy to recommend them to you.

Kit B. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have had good dental care here– the crown that I had done was as painless and effective as could be. I also have nothing but praise for my hygienist, Brianna, who is so thorough and so nice. I don’t like a lot of chitchat when I’m at the dentist’s, but so enjoy her presence. She always explains everything she is doing each step of the way, and never lectures me on what I have done wrong to possibly cause problems. A real pro. And the staff — Heidi and Shari — are always so efficient and friendly — makes the dreaded dental visits a lot easier to take! I also appreciate that the office is open one Saturday each month — they were terrific when I needed an emergency appointment on one of those Saturdays.

Marisa D. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


Can you say ….. the best dentist ….. I broke a molar on Sunday….called all my dear friends for a recommendation . All raved about their dentist. Called all and not a return call. Decided to Yelp and use Health Grades and found Dr Vogel…. Left a message and bam…. a return call from the Dr himself within a few hours. He asked if I had pain…and I did not…. squeezed me on Monday at 4 by 545 PM my tooth was repaired and perfect! Truly amazing staff and competency. He said I may have some pain or sensitivity…..no…never had anything… I will definitely use and recommend Dr Vogel to anyone needing painless, quality care and responsive

Tony F. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I’m afraid of the dentist, and it was severe pain that lead me to this office after checking yelp. All I can say is everyone there is nice and the work done (dr Vogel) is top notch and very nearly pain-free. After the acute issue (fixed perfectly and painlessly) I’ve gone back for cleaning and another filling that was less of an emergency. Does it make it easier to go to the dentist when you know they will make it nearly painless and as easy as possible? 100,000% recommend.

Michael M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I am not one who loves going to the Dentist, but, I recently went in for a cleaning and a filling and all I can say is it was a great experience. The cleaning was more than thorough, the Hygienist did a fantastic job. The filling was smooth and painless. This place is as good as it gets! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and I felt very cared for. I am looking forward to my next cleaning! Who looks forward to tooth care? I do now!

Christie E. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I left United Nations Plaza Dental after being a  loyal patient since 2001. I was very upset after recently having my right front tooth re-bonded three times in less than a few months. Since this is the ONLY dental work that I have ever had to do, besides basic semi annual check ups; I was really insulted when I returned to UN Dental and went to talk to the head dentist about the previous poor bonding work. He wasn’t even apologetic?! I knew I had to run when: 1) the gentleman in front of me was in for the same exact problem; 2) the assistant said (with her own front chipped tooth) that she would NEVER let any doctor here touch her! OMG…So, I was listening to WQXR (I am a classical pianist since 1993) and heard an advertisement for quality dental care; so I knew I could trust the ad. l called Central Park West Dental immediately. Dr. Vogel saved my smile. I cannot thank him enough! His excellent expertise and kindness is priceless. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed! The staff is friendly and also caring. The office and location is clean and beautiful. I am so happy that I have found them. I will never go anywhere else.

Steven C. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve entered the 21st Century!! At least in terms of dentistry… After 30 years of seeing the same dentist, today I tried a brand new one. I always liked my old dentist, but when he retired I decided not to go to any of his partners from the same office but to try someone new. I had heard about dentists usually new technology to create crowns in the office within two hours. My only complaint about my old dentist is that the last two crowns required a total of five visits each! (First, I showed up with a cracked tooth and got a temporary crown, then returned for the measurement of the new crown, then back again for the fitting but it wouldn’t fit, so back again for remodeling the tooth and a new measurement for the replacement crown, and then the final successful fitting.) Not only does this new dentist have the technology to do in-office crowns in two hours, but they also do electronic X-rays with 80% less radiation exposure. Plus, you can see them yourself, right away on the screen opposite the examination chair. They also have a high-resolution camera so that they can show you individual teeth enlarged on the big screen. They will email any photo or X-ray to you. But, not only do they have all this technology, they also have an extreme attention to detail, much more thorough–both the hygienist and doctor. It was an entirely different experience for me. Plus, they were painless. Plus, they emailed me the photo of my tooth that had a broken filling and a crack in the underlying tooth that they will cover with a crown on my next visit (using the special in-office crown technology! They can’t use it for every crown, but they can for this one!). Anyway, he’s so much better than any dentist I’ve experienced previously, I would encourage anyone in the area to give him a try.
