I typically don’t write reviews but hope I can sum up how great my experience was with Dr. Emma: HIGHLY RECOMMEND I’m an adult. Had braces for a long time as a teenager, and while my treatment was fairly successful at the time, it became obvious as I got older that there were things that should or could have been better – I think this was due to some structural mouth issues I have as well as perhaps some limitations/conventional practices within the industry at the time. Explored Invisalign several years ago with a different provider because I was scared of getting braces again at around 30. Braces, however, were really the best bet to get the best results for me as they are permanent, but thought if I was super compliant with Invisalign it would be enough. For a variety of reasons, it was very difficult to be compliant and I ended up not completing treatment. A few years later, I finally revisited braces with Dr. Emma. She was extremely understanding of my concerns and her no-nonsense but sympathetic demeanor put me at ease and gave me the confidence to just get the braces in order to get the best possible results I could get without doing something crazy and unnecessary (like breaking my jaw just to achieve a perfect orthodontic bite). She gave me an honest assessment of the results she thought were achievable to set reasonable expectations – which were actually exceeded – and the treatment was even shorter than I anticipated. It’s a busy practice but I always felt I was given attention and a high level of care. (Also, being an adult, I didn’t need to make appts. for after school time when it’s super busy.) I know when I need to explore orthodontics with my children as I undoubtedly will, I will be back in Dr. Emma’s office.

Just an overall pleasant experience – from Dr Emma to her entire staff. Understandably, most people dread going to the dentist’s office. But Dr. Emma and her staff made each visit a painless and pleasant experience, and the results were fantastic! I would recommend Dr. Emma to anyone and everyone.

My 14 year old son, Aidan, finally got his braces off yesterday. He looks Great! Our overall experience was an Outstanding one. Professional, friendly, knowledgeable, welcoming, clean and the list could continue! Dr. Denise Emma is a credit to her profession and has cherry picked an exceptional staff providing a warm family environment!! L

Dr. Denise Emma helped me realize a life long dream.  My experience with her began 1 year and a half ago. I was recommended by my Periodontist after many years of treatment for gum disease.  I spent years of frustration from childhood to the age of 69 with crooked teeth. I did not think I could have the amazing smile that Dr. Emma has helped me achieve.  Her staff was very courteous and encouraging. The facility is modern and pristine.   I highly would recommend her.

All four of my children and I have used Dr. Emma and absolutely love her!  The office is modern and clean,the staff very friendly and helpful and Dr. Emma always makes sure your treatment is going as planned. She has always fit us in for an appointment when 1 or more of my children have broken a brace.  Dr. Emma always offers up to date services and the follow up care is excellent. Even now my college age children talk about how great Dr. Emma is!

Ricki V. from Cedarhurst, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had my fair share of experiences with braces and orthodontists… Braces for 3 years as a teen and then invisilign in my late teens early 20s.  Nothing seemed to keep my teeth straight until I visited dr. Emma’s office and tried the incognito braces.  They were behind my teeth, I couldn’t see them and neither could anyone else.  My teeth has never looked better.  Dr. Emma and her staff are amazing and knowledgable and I couldn’t imagine a better experience anywhere else.  Thank you dr. Emma!!

Simply put, Dr. Emma is amazing in every way! Not only is she extremely thorough and precise in everything she does, her happy, welcoming personality surpasses any physician I have ever encountered. She is always available to answer any questions, any time. Having had incognito braces myself with Dr. Emma, and my daughter traditional braces, our teeth look beautiful! Her office is pristine, and her entire staff is amazing. They are all very helpful, professional and friendly. I recommend Dr. Emma all the time and will continue to do so! She’s the best!

To start, Dr. Emma’s office is inviting and warm. Girls at the desk are friendly and helpful. Dr Emma is knowledgeable, thorough and kind. She patiently answers questions and concerns. Explains all procedures and is very gentle. My daughter always leaves her office with a smile. Having braces isn’t so bad when you have a great orthodontist.

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


I had such a great experience with Doctor Emma and her entire staff in the Garden City office.  It was always very easy to schedule appointments as the office is very accommodating with their hours of service.  Everyone in the office is very friendly and always ensures all patients are comfortable during their appointment.  I saw great results with my Invisalign treatment and would highly recommend Doctor Emma.

Dr. Emma and her staff are amazing! Our appointments were on time and easy to schedule. Any broken wires and brackets were able to be repaired the same day I called – which reduced any discomfort they were feeling in a timely manner. This also kept my kids on target to have the braces removed on time. The results are picture perfect smiles! Thank you Dr. Emma!

I started taking my daughter to Dr. Emma this past October. She knew immediately what to do and we saw results within two weeks! Dr. Emma is an exceptional doctor who is very meticulous! In addition, her staff is courteous, kind and extremely helpful. And the office is beautiful and very clean!! We are so happy with our decision to go to Dr. Emma!!

Dr. Emma is the best orthodontist ever! I would recommend her to anyone who needs braces. She, along with her staff is very kind, personable and extremely professional! My daughter received braces here and looks forward to her visits; she has had an amazing experience so far! I could not recommend a better orthodontist!

Such a pleasure working with Dr. Emma and her amazing staff!! She has treated my two younger children & myself and I truly have never experienced a more professionally run office. The staff at the front desk are so friendly and patient, Mary Beth is super efficient and helpful with insurance issues & the Assistants always come out to the waiting room with your child to give a progress report. I wish I had found Dr. Emma’s practice sooner so that my 2 older children could have been treated by her!

Dr. Emma is the best orthodontist on Long Island. My daughters teeth are beautiful because of the great work done by her and the whole staff. People stop us and comment on how beautiful my daughters teeth are. We thank Dr. Emma for that. Not only is she a great orthodontist but she is kind and patient caring person. Absolutely use her!!!

Robyn Cohen Shapiro (Source: Facebook)


After 3 children I can confidently say ” We could not be happier”!! Each child recieved different plans according to their individual need. The patience, care, individual attention, ease of booking appointments, the list is endless. Without divulging too much personal information, I just need to express my gratitude and thanks for a job very well done times 3.

My daughter just got her braces off! Dr. Emma was a God sent. This was my child’s second time around and her first orthodontist made a huge mistake and Dr. Emma saved the day by correcting the error. My child looks fantastic and it’s the team of sweet, friendly and caring individuals that made this whole experience great!

Christine Tiedemann (Source: Google)


Dr. Emma has been the orthodontist for all of my children. I couldn’t possibly give her a higher recommendation. She has a wonderful demeanor, both with her patients and parents. She is thorough, explains her course of treatment before beginning completely. She offers alternatives and choices if they are applicable to the situation. She gives a very accurate time frame of how long she thinks her plan should take. She is completely professional while presenting herself in a friendly and inviting way. Her office staff has been very stable. They too, are friendly and professional. The office runs in an extremely timely fashion, and there is hardly ever a wait past your appointment time. We were completely pleased not only with our end result, but with the whole process. Dr. Emma and staff were a complete pleasure.

Dr. Emma came highly recommended & she didn’t disappoint. After having braces as a teenager, my teeth shifted and I was unhappy with my smile. Utilizing the most advanced technology, she was able to correct my smile in less than a year. Appointments were quick and easy with lots of scheduling flexibility. Now, my own teenager is a patient and we are very pleased with his progress and the experience we’ve had with her and her staff. Highly recommend!

Ann M. from Rockville Centre, NY (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Denise Emma.  Dr. Emma saw me as an adult for Invisalign braces.  My teeth are beautiful.  I get compliments all the time.  Dr. Emma is extremely  professional and competent, warm and kind.  She leads by example.  I found her staff to be friendly and reassuring. The biggest recommendation I can give is that I referred my 8 year old niece for her braces.  I wouldn’t go anywhere else for orthodontic services.

Keith H. from Carle Place, NY (Source: Yelp)


Let me start off by saying, Dr. Emma is the absolute best – she is attentive, gentle and very caring.  When you add her staff (specifically Tara) into the equation, we are looking at a world class Orthodontist.  From the moment you walk into the office you are met by smiles and everyone knows your name – just impressive.  With regards to the service, they are spot on and I’ve seen a huge difference  and I’m completely satisfied.  There is no wait time, you get in, get serviced effectively and then on with the rest of your day – efficiency at its best.

I am very lucky to have had Dr. Emma recommended to me. I’m of the over 50 crowd, whose teeth shifted to the point that I was embarrassed to smile. Working with Dr. Emma and her staff was such a pleasure. After 16 months, my teeth are perfect!!! Dr. Emma made the whole experience so easy. Every appointment was positive and if I broke a wire, I could stop by any time, someone was always there to help me. No matter what age you are, I highly recommend Dr. Emma….its never to late to have the Perfect Smile!!

Dr. Emma is incredible. I was definitely a unique patient, I had 2 baby teeth my whole life and my adult teeth never came down. Dr. Emma recommended me to great oral surgeons to ensure she can do the best Invisalign possible. The Invisalign was supposed to be 8 months but I was done in 5! My smile is perfect in my eyes now. I got my teeth straightened out and got crowns over the “baby teeth”. I recommend everyone to Dr. Emma now! there is no other orthodontist that cares so much about her patients, she always takes that extra step.

My daughter Hannah has a genetic condition that causes her to only have one front tooth instead of 2 teeth. Conventional methods to fix this would have included moving the one tooth to the side and eventually getting an implant…this was not what my daughter wanted. Dr. Emma worked with Hannah to make a plan to make her a beautiful smile without loosing her “unicorn” tooth. We are all thrilled with how she looks and completely impressed with how much Dr. Emma cared about what was best for Hannah. Also the entire staff is amazing! Warm, friendly and kind!

Tina A. from Rockville Centre, NY (Source: Yelp)


Getting braces for my son was a pleasure- from start to finish with help and care of Dr Emma and her team. A mother herself, Dr. Emma has the utmost respect and attention to detail in every patient she treats, including me. I love the way they welcome us, and bring us right in for our treatment, and spend the time with my son to explain all the details and progress. Best of all: The smile on my sons face…. and mine. I couldn’t be happier.

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


Dr. Emma was my orthodontist growing up, so I’ve known her for a long time! She’s incredibly professional and works with you until your teeth are 100% corrected. I’m close to finishing my Invisalign treatment (pre-wedding) with her now and couldn’t be happier with the results! Every step of the way, she’s assured me when I had any questions. Dr. Emma does truly incredible work.

Isabel T. from Mineola, NY (Source: Yelp)

The office offers Braces, lingual Braces & Invisalign. The office staff  deserve praises because they are the BEST, always polite & very accommodating. When looking for straight teeth you go to the person who specializes in Orthodontics & that’s DOCTOR EMMA!!!! Thank you Dr. Emma for our beautiful smiles

Karen M. from Garden City, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emma and her staff did beautiful work on both my son’s & daughter’s smiles! Office visits are always a pleasure…the office runs like clockwork and Dr. Emma and her staff are professional, friendly and competent. We were always accommodated, whether it be for making or changing appointments, or being seen for unexpected emergency visits. Dr. Emma created natural, beautiful smiles in a fairly short period of time, with a plan that was effective and aggressive, while assuring minimum discomfort. We are so pleased with the experience and our results that we recommend Dr. Emma to everyone!

“Dr. Emma and her staff are wonderful! Our son was a difficult case and it has taken 3 years to get the beautiful smile he has now. But every step of the way, Dr. Emma has been patient and gentle and that made Sean feel more comfortable. Her office uses state of the art technology, she was/is always on time, and the staff was always willing to work with me when I was having trouble with my insurance plan or needed to reschedule a visit at the last minute.”

Two thumbs up for Dr Emma and her kind and professional staff. Would highly reccomend her to friends and peers. Very satisfied!

Dr Emma is simply amazing. Very knowledgeable, precise and patient orthodontist we know. She explains everything from start to finish. Is good at explaining the braces to the younger kids. Her bedside manner is above par. Her staff is just as amazing. Friendly, kind and patient. Love them all. Would recommend 110%.

Alexandra Lippens (Source: Google)


Over a year into treatment for my son, and Dr. Emma is putting braces on my daughter…a great choice for both…. Convenient, accommodating and efficient… And most importantly patient with both my children and my questions. We rarely wait in the office, and scheduling is a piece of cake. Despite my children’s uncooperative teeth, Dr. Emma finds a way to make them move!!!

Maureen C Sullivan (Source: Facebook)


I would highly recommend Dr. Emma as I am extremely happy with the results of Invisalign. Dr. Emma and her office staff made the process enjoyable. Dr. Emma is not only extremely knowledgeable but also kind and caring. My only regret is that I did not do this sooner.

Tracey McKay (Source: Google)


Dr. Emma has treated all 4 of my children. She is incredibly thorough from beginning to end with each treatment plan. She is always friendly, patient, and kind to the kids. They adore her! Her staff is also wonderful. They are very pleasant and accommodating when scheduling appointments. Dr Emma’s office is impeccable. It’s also in a great location and parking is never a problem. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Emma. She is a true professional.

Dr. Emma, as well as her office staff, are all unbelievably courteous, professional, and accommodating. My experience with her was beyond satisfactory. Every appointment was prompt, while she made it incredibly clear how we were progressing and the plan going forward. Whenever I needed to make an appointment she was very helpful in working with my schedule. Dr. Emma invests in her patients in an exemplary way and I highly recommend her services to anyone in need of them.
