Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

D Y. from Upper East Side, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I could not give high enough praise for Dr. Loflin, or his office staff. I have been to him twice; once to get two crowns put in, and the other to get a filling. Dr. Loflin is thorough, professional, patient, personable, and answers every question extremely comprehensively. He is sharp and considers the best options for how to address an issue, and is careful and detail-oriented. He takes patient care very seriously and makes it the center of his practice. He also has all the newest technology (with a screen in front of you so he can review x-rays and show you everything he’s doing) and has a nice view outside his office (Central Park). On top of all that, he has wonderful and responsive office staff who could not be more personable or make scheduling any easier. I recommend him to whoever I can! I could go on for a long while about my exceptional experience with him. In short, DEFINITELY go to him!!! He is just fantastic.

Dr. Loflin has been my dentist for 10 years and he is amazing (so much so that I went out of my way to find him when he switched practices). I’d previously had a bad experience with another dentist in New York who told me I needed what would’ve amounted to over $1000 of treatments for my gums and Dr. Loflin was very clear that he did not think any intervention was necessary (and my gums are doing just fine 10 years later with no treatment). My husband and I both have other examples like this one. I know that if Dr. Loflin recommends a treatment, it’s 100% necessary. I’ve also run into a number of different issues where I needed to be seen right away and he has always fit me in, even offering to meet me in the office on the weekend if needed and making sure I had his contact info. Jasmine in the office is also awesome. I recommend this practice to everyone!

Had a great experience here for my bi-annual cleaning! Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and they make you feel like you are getting top notch care, which I really appreciated. I also liked that they have a big TV to show you X-Rays and scans in real-time and a nice view of Central Park that you can look at while you’re in the chair. Hadn’t seen either of those at a Dental office before that’s for sure. Would recommend to anyone and I’ll definitely be back!

Christopher J. from Astoria, NY (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended to Dr. Loflin and Citidental through a co-worker two years ago for bi-annual cleanings. I am quite impressed with the company as a whole more so than Dr. Loflin himself. I’ve only been in for cleanings and since nothing has ever been wrong and I haven’t had many questions, my actual interactions with Dr. Loflin are quite brief. But with my few interactions with him, I can agree with the reviews by the other members. The rating above is for CitiDental and it’s staff. The office is super modern and quite technologically advanced compared to my other dentists. There are massive flat screen TV’s that display you X-rays/informational videos/or simply just basic cable. The hygienist can play Pandora in the background at your wish. I’ve used the same hygienist for two years (Alma) and I strongly recommend. Every time I’m finished with my cleaning, I feel like I just woke up from a nap. The cleanings were professional, timely, and thorough. The reception staff is also friendly and helpful as one would expect.

Dr.Loflin was the best dentists I have ever been to. He and his staff are so nice and thorough. I felt really taken care of and I really appreciate how welcome he and his staff made me feel. I am really afraid of dentist but after seeing Dr.Loflin today I no longer am and will definitely be returning to his office again.

John T. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had been using the same dentist for 5 years and he always claimed his aim was to only do work when necessary. When my silver filing chipped he claimed the tooth was too foregone and would require a crown. I did a little research and discovered this dentist was a little crown-happy so I looked online and found Dr. Loflin right here on yelp. I visited Dr. Loflin today and he did a fantastic job. Their office is high tech and very clean and welcoming. They have large screen TVs in their rooms and they ask you what movie you want to watch on Netflix Instant Play. Dr. Loflin was able to replace the filling and save the tooth, which saved me about $500 and I avoided all the hassles of putting a crown in. They have the latest in dentistry technology and he uses a pen camera to take pictures of your teeth and show it to you on the screen while he explains in detail what he’s going to do. Everyone there is very nice and helpful and the whole experience makes going to the dentist a lot more pleasant than it should be. He provided his cell phone number to me in case I have any issues. I highly, highly recommend him.

Claudy L. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been with Dr. Loflin since 2006, I can tell you how impossible it is to find a good dentist in the City, but I did find Dr. Loflin and I’ve been happy going to the dentist ever since! The office is a good place with high tech feel to it. Also if you see the office from the outside it will deceive you, very scary looking front door on Madison Avenue. When you get upstairs it is a breath of fresh air and upscale. Love the ladies at the front desk always very helpful and put you at easy state of mind. Cleanings have always been painless. Dr. Loflin always show you through x-rays and images exactly what’s wrong and what they’re going to fix and why. Thank you guys! Claudy L.

The first time I went to Dr. Loflin’s office, back in 2012, I hadn’t been to the dentist in a while. He and his staff did a great job cleaning my teeth and suggested an electric tooth brush, which has been a game changer for me. My cleanings have never been so easy. I’d recommend his office to anyone looking for a friendly thorough dentist with a great support staff.

William Dickey (Source: Google)


Recently it occurred to me that is has been over 5 years since I’ve had my last checkup and cleaning. I looked for highly recommended dentists nearby and happened upon Dr. Loflin. I am not one to write reviews, but my experience was so good that I felt compelled to give Dr. Loflin yet another 5 star review. He was very friendly and accommodating, getting me scheduled for exam, full x-rays and cleaning on very short notice. He even took a high resolution scan of my teeth that can detect minute changes that can occur to my teeth and mouth over years. The staff was likewise friendly. He worked with his assistant like a well oiled machine. As noted I hadn’t had checkup for over 5 years – all the same, he completed everything in well under an hour. I’m sure there must have been some substantial plaque buildup but my teeth were cleaned quickly, efficiently most importantly with minimum discomfort.

My experience with CitiDental is priceless. The environment is soothing which is ironic for a dential office. Dr.Loftlin is great, friendly and courteous. The hygienists do a great job with cleanings. Because my gums bleed so much I do suggest to have them brush after cleaning to avoid the nasty bloody taste. The staff are also friendly. I would and have recommended my friends to CitiDental. Kastilia C

Jewels S. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Loftlin and his staff at CitiDental!! I’ve been a patient for over a year, and I love them more every time I visit. They’ve been so accommodating and genuinely caring. I always feel welcome and at ease in their office. CitiDental offers a self-pay discount plan that makes it affordable to get major work done if you don’t have insurance, and they were so helpful when I needed emergency care during a difficult financial time. Plus, during my first visit their quote came in waaaaaay under other dentists’ consultations. My favorite thing about CitiDental is the office itself — it’s super clean, and they set you up with Netflix during the procedures — If you’re like me and have MAJOR dental phobias, this is a huge help! No more fits of terror before my appointments… 🙂 Thank you Dr. Loftlin!

5 out of 5 star review (review of my experience as a patient): Dr. Clarence Loflin, DDS was very knowledgeable – He communicated with me after his appointment and during his off-hours regarding the ingredients of my mouthwash that I had bought on Amazon — and the potential causes of plaque from the ingredients of my amazon ordered mouthwash. Dr. Clarence Loflin, DDS has a nice office and during the current coronavirus pandemic his office had a whole list of measures in place regarding precautionary/safety measures, including specific mouthwash, hand sanitizer, calling before appointment to ensure they are available, mask requirements, social distancing, to name a few. Dr. Clarence Loflin, DDS was available, on-time, and friendly (he sat and socialized about U.S. Navy dentists for when I was in the U.S. Navy). Dr. Loflin is always smiling. Dr. Clarence Loflin, DDS has very innovative dental gadgets – including a 4k or 8k tv in the dental room, which he used to use video camera to explain to me exposed roots that I had and the potential causes of the exposed roots. This picture may have been 8k. Other best dentists in the city did not have this type of equipment. I was shocked at how technologically advanced they are. Dr. Clarence Loflin, DDS is well trained and has been practicing his profession for a long time. Dr. Clarence Loflin, DDS has good memory – he specifically remembered when speaking to him days later that my exposed root was due to hard brushing or clenching during sleep. With high patient volume, that is impressive. I have since ordered a Sonicare toothbrush, which he recommended due to my potential hard brushing. I am a healthcare provider who is providing this review. I also posted on his Yelp.

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


After searching for a new dentist and reading the reviews for Dr. Loflin I thought i would give him a try. I had another dentist in NYC that was painful, so I was not looking forward to a dentist visit. When I called the receptionist was very nice and made my appointment. I had Xrays, and a cleaning and exam. They were very thorough and explained everything as they went along. Nothing was painful. I had two cavities that Dr. Loflin even came in early (8am) to take care of, since he was booked, and my insurance was running out. He did both cavities and there was no pain. He explained everything before and as he went along which made me feel comfortable. I found a really good dentist here and am happy to recommend him to any one.

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


The staff and Dr. Loflin are exemplary.  I appreciate the thoroughness, care, and customer service shared with clients. I would strongly recommend this practice to my friends and plan to continue care with them.  Added perk…you could watch Netflix or have your favorite Pandora station tuned in while on the “chair”…definitely makes time go by way better.  I was fortunate to have Alma as my hygenist…she is awesome!

Angel H. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Loflin is the best dentist I’ve been to in 20 years, and I’ve been to many. He was friendly and super skilled. He and the hygienist, Alma, who was also great, had some good ideas about how to best deal with my dental problems. I left my last dentist because I had three cavities in one year and he didn’t have any suggestions about what I could do beyond flossing and brushing. Now I’m armed with a number of prescription and nonprescription products. But Dr Loflin didn’t try to sell me thousands of dollars worth of services and products. I’ve had some dentists who seemed more like used car salesmen. Dr Loflin seemed honest and like he really cared. I was so impressed that I sent a number of friends his phone number and put his name and website with a recommendation as a signature on my emails. I am so relieved I found a competent dentist who explains what he’s doing. He also has a good dental plan for people who don’t have insurance.

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


I echo the other reviews here. Dr. Loflin is very friendly and knowledgeable. Most of all, he tries to cure what’s hurting you, not pile on treatments and services. I’ve had dentists try to push cosmetic procedures on teeth that I hadn’t even gone to them to fix! Dr. Loflin takes an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude. It makes a huge difference when you feel as though your dentist is trying to care for your teeth rather than trying to find a way to pad your bill so they can add a wing to their house or buy some expensive new machine.

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


I went to Dr. Loflin for a teeth cleaning a few weeks ago. I haven’t been to the dentist in many many years, I was terrified but Dr. Loflin was so nice and genuine I felt right at home. He had the most amazing cameras the showed me what was going on with my teeth and what I needed to work on to prevent cavities. I have never had an experience like the one I had with Dr. Loflin. I can’t tell you enough that he is the most amazing dentist ever. I have to go back in a few weeks for a cavity and I’m actually looking forward to it. THE BEST IN THE CITY!!!!

Esther H. (Source: Zocdoc)


It was the best dental experience I ever had in my 22 years in NYC. Dr Loflin and his dental hygienist Jasmin were funny, warm, welcoming and super talented on my first visit. It put a dental phobic patient totally at ease. The exam room was top end, high tech and I had a view of my teeth that I never saw before. Also the views of Central Park were amazing and tranquil. I have highly recommended Dr. Loflin to all my friends. He is top notch in the dental world and I look forward to my next appointment!

Amir Nelaj (Source: Google)


I am a patient at Dr. Loflin practice for several years and i am extremely happy with his service/care. They don’t try to sell you unnecessary products/treatments. His team of professionals, which includes my hygienist (Alma)is amazing!! My teeth feel great and clean! His team is kind and courteous.. – views of central park are priceless!- Definitely recommended!!

Christopher L. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I am not fond of going to Dentist.  The anxiety in the chair is something unavoidable as we all need good, healthy teeth.  This establishment has made the experience all the better.  Everyone is pleasant and extremely knowledgeable.  Everything is explained in layman’s terms and I don’t see going elsewhere, period.  I hope you give them a chance.  I have had my fair share of bad experiences (a poorly done root canal was one they repaired) and know the importance of finding a great practice.

Karen L. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Loflin is absolutely the best dentist and an uniquely extraordinarily kind, caring person! At the beginning of each appt. he sits down and in his relaxed, warm, genuine style we chat about our lives and then about my teeth. Dr. Loflin’s skills are A+++++, he is very gentle and thorough, mitigates any possibility of pain or discomfort & answers every question. Almost unbelievably, he does not seem to be motivated by money. He, nor his exemplary staff, never to sell, obviously uses the finest labs and CitiDental’s immaculate beyond state-of-art office always has the latest, greatest, safest equipment. (I will write more in my review about his fabulous CitiDental staff). Dr. Loflin is very humble, doesn’t announce this, but it’s a fact that he is also a wonderful humanitarian – volunteering regularly in the poorest countries and generously helping others in need. I truly look forward to my dental visits and always leave with a bright smile on my teeth and in my heart. Thank you Dr. Loflin for all you do and for being a Mentsh (Yiddish for a special person whose life philosophy encompasses moral and ethical dignity).!

I was seeking a new dentist since my insurance changed. I’m very glad I found this dentist. Yesterday was my first visit and it went amazing. The front staff was friendly, the dentist assistant friendly, the doctor himself Dr. Loflin was great. I went for a clean up the Doctor assistant (Alma, not sure if I’m spelling it right) made sure I was feeling comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr. Loflin explained very well the condition of my teeth/gums. Dr. Loflin even showed me an example with pictures to give me a better understanding. Alma answered all my questions and made sure I left with nothing unanswered. If you need a dentist that listens to your concerns, is friendly, does a good job search no further! What a great team??

Dr. Loflin is one of the best dentists I ever come across to. I worked with Dr. Loflin many years ago. In my lifetime I’ve worked with many dentists, I’ve seen countless dental offices, some still haunt me in my nightmares. Working with Dr. Loflin was easy, because his priority was always patients interest and perfect service, which agreed with my working ethics. Even after I stopped working for Dr. Loflin, I would still go back to him as a patient. I refer my family members and friends to him. Why? Because I can trust him. I trust his opinion, his excellent work, his ethics, his conservative approach, his friendly, caring and pleasant personality. There is no better dentist in New York City. Trust me, I know.

Alexandra Robbins (Source: Google)


Dr. Loflin is an outstanding dentist. He is conservative in his approach- never wants to do unnecessary dental work. Beyond that he is incredibly friendly and kind. he really cares about his patients and is very personable. the staff are all very friendly and attentive. I love going to the dentist these days.

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


I am the worst dental patient, so terrified of the dentist that I have to make a special Saturday 3 hour appointment for fillings because I make them practically knock me out with sweet air before having anything done.  Dr. Loflin is great.  He is understanding of my phobia and is always accommodating, kind, and does an excellent job.  I don’t think I could ever go to another dentist.

Kimberly J. from Asheville, NC (Source: Yelp)


The staff and dentists are very professional. I have been going to Dr. Loflin for close to five years and he has always treated me with patience, kindness, humor and respect. I have had a lot of work done in my mouth: injury from previous accidents, bridges, implants… Dr. Loflin is always sensitive and careful and yet totally thorough in my check ups, cleanings and any necessary cleanings. I used to cry going to the dentist, now I know I am in good, competent hands and I feel safe going there knowing I am taking care of myself. I cannot reccommend a dental office more than this one!

Eugene P. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Clarence Loflin, DDS is a wonderful expertise Dentist, who I say is one of the best in the world. Each visit is customized and manufactured to the clients needs with the top professionalism and responsibility to the patients outcome, and its nice to have someone who shows such joy in what he does work on someones smile, with such enthusiasm and care. And the same goes for the Citidentists team. Thanks Citidentists your the greatest!!!

James Z. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


This is one of the best dentists in the tri-state area in my view. Two key things I am most impressed are (1) they genuinely care for the patients (2) the quality of the work they do. My experience there includes teeth cleaning, removal of wisdom teeth and my very first root canal. The teeth cleaning was extremely thorough. The wisdom teeth removal was painless. Most importantly the oral surgeon cares about your experience and tells you what to expect every step of the procedure, almost like your mother :). He also calls next day to ask how you were doing. My wife was joking that only my son’s dentist follows up like this. I was a bit nervous about the root canal given all the bad reputation of it. But the specialist did a wonderful job as well. No pain during the root canal and no pain afterwards. Maybe it’s because my tooth was only partially infected. But the experience counts. Overall I am very satisfied!

Rocko Stojiljkovic (Source: Google)


The best dentist in NYC. Hands down. The office is very clean and the staff super friendly. I’ve never had an issue getting an appointment when I needed one, even with a very short notice. Dr. Loflin is very meticulous, efficient, and has a great way of explaining what needs to be done now vs. later. I don’t think you’ll be able to find a better dentist in New York!

S B (Source: Google)


Dr. Loflin came to me after a bad experience with another known doctor. The other known doctor over ordered panoramic x-rays, told me I had a cavity on a tooth when determined later I did not, and stated there was no infection but a different doctor at this other doctor’s site had told me there was highly likely an infection, which quickly resolved by antibiotics. Dr. Loflin made me feel comfortable after this emotional experience for me that had made me question the healthcare dental system in NYC. It took me a long time to find a good practice. I felt Dr. Loflin’s entire team was also helpful even during my 4 wisdom teeth extraction. Dr. Loflin extensively talked to me about my dental issues, even more so than my previous providers. Dr. Loflin was also beyond accommodating, and to say the least he went above the extra mile compared to what the average dental provider would be willing to do. He certainly loves his profession and wants the best for his patients. I am writing this review in addition to Dustin, who wrote the previous review today, due to we both had good experiences. I referred Dustin to him and he decided to continue with him instead of his previous provider. Dr. Loflin’s compassion, empathy, professionalism, and thorough treatment plan for me certainly deserves this EXCELLENT review. I can happily say that my friends will also be given referrals if they ever ask for a dental provider and a great dental office, and I have already recommended a few friends. He is the best!

Kyedi T. from Rosedale, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a routine check up and cleaning with Dr Loflin. The office was very modern looking and up to date. Dr Loflin was very nice and informative. He answered my questions and gave suggestions for my regimen.  It was one of the best teeth cleanings I ever had. very thorough nothing left behind.  I loved it so much i bringing my son here next month. Thank you so much Dr Loflin 🙂

Jesse B. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I hadn’t been to a dentist for years, and after some searching I decided to contact Dr. Loflin and I couldn’t be happier that I did. I went in for a simple cleaning, we found some things that had to be fixed (I figured we would) and made necessary appointments a few weeks later. About a week after my cleaning, an old crown fell out of my mouth while eating pizza and I looked like a pirate with a missing tooth! Dr. Loflin had given me a business card, I shot him an email and he responded immediately and gave me an emergency appointment for the next day. I was so worried that I would have to walk around without a tooth for a few days, but really it was less than 24 hours and I was back to normal, in fact my new crown is much better. I was also extremely happy with the option to watch Netflix while they worked on me. David Attenborough provided a relaxing escape while I was getting worked on – highly recommend Dr Loflin.

I was very pleased with every aspect of my visit with Dr. Loflin. The online scheduling of my appointment went smoothly followed by online completion of new patient forms. The entire staff from the billing person to the dental hygienist to Dr. Loflin were friendly and demonstrated great care in performing their specific tasks. I feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Loflin. I have a mild case of dental phobia and have searched a number of years for a gentle competent dentist. Dr. Loflin is all of that and more. He patiently answered all of my questions while reviewing my x-rays with me and discussing the work I needed. I was especially impressed with how tuned in he was to any discomfort I felt while he worked on my teeth. He was quick to stop and ask how I was doing and make any adjustment that would be helpful. This was a great first visit. I plan to return to Dr. Loflin for all my dental care and highly recommend him to anyone in search of a gentle, highly competent dentist.

Xiaoxiao O. (Source: Zocdoc)


Awesome experience once again. My husband and I have been seeing Dr Loflin for over 10 years. We like his thoroughness, ability to understand our issues, and provide clear resolutions. The hygienists are always gentle and friendly. We are happy that he’s found this great location.

Alvin S. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!!! I had no dental insurance and mounting dental problems. This is a terrible place to find yourself. I found DrLoflin on yelp and was thrilled to find solutions to my problems. DrLoflin and a team of specialists offer a dental plan directly to the patient. No greedy corporate middle man. I found it to be less expensive than the plan offered by my union and 3 free cleanings to boot! I felt very comfortable with the integrity of their professional judgement because puts the emphasis on prevention and eduction, not ‘drill, fill, bill’. Highly recommended!
