I have been seeing Dr. Schlesinger for at least 7 years.  He is the most diligent, caring and conscious  medical professional I have ever dealt with.  His office is well provisioned and immaculate.  The staff is always welcoming and comforting.  Having been raised in the time of “torture” dentistry, my experience with Dr. Schlesinger has resulted in those childhood memories and fears being eliminated. it is It is reassuring  to know that Dr. Schlesinger spends considerable time and effort to be in the forefront of his profession.

A visit to Dr. Schlesinger’s office almost always includes learning a new and interesting fact or two about dentistry. Dr. Schlesinger is knowledgeable in answering questions and addressing current developments in his field. Also, he is thorough in explaining the nature of any procedure; and, patient in assuring comfort before proceeding with any non-routine dental work.

Can’t reccomend him enough! Was able to squeeze me in last minute for a dental emergency. Received a follow up call later that night checking in on me. Was in virtually no pain after the procedure. So glad that I was referred here by a friend!

I was visiting NYC for my medical health (recent breast CA diagnosis, getting treatment at MSKCC) when my crown fell off. Dr Schlesinger’s staff accommodated me swiftly, and Dr Schlesinger took care of it promptly. He has impeccable professionalism, and went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable given my recent double mastectomy. He has my strongest recommendation.

Kimberly M. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


My favorite dentist I have ever had. He does the cleanings so the office is never double booked and you don’t have to wait forever like usual offices. Great bedside manner, fun to chat with, plays awesome music during your cleaning or procedure. He recommended me to an amazing orthodontist who together they have created the smile I always wanted. Goodies bags after each treatment are the icing on the cake.

Crystal M. from Soundview, Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


Awesome Dentist!!! I first saw him for an emergency and he was certainly able to fix my issue. He was quick, kind and dealt with my sensitive gums accordingly. Great sense of humor and didn’t mind my cursing. His prices are fair and he billed me for my balance which was very nice.  I take my 3yr old to see him too. Highly recommend

Dr Schlesinger is the best dentist in town. So much so, that even though we moved to NJ, my husband and I take the 1 hour train ride in every 6 months for our appointments. Dr Schlesinger takes the time to explain everything going on. He meticulously performs the cleanings himself with an assistant. My teeth always feel so clean after, making the long trip in well worth it. Thank you Dr Schlesinger!

Dr. Schlesinger is a great dentist and my favorite doctor in the city. I have been a patient of his for many years and I won’t go anywhere else. He is a true professional and I enjoy visiting his office for routine cleanings and check ups. I never have to wait long to be seen and his staff is friendly and accommodating. Dr. Schlesinger has a steady hand and always makes me feel at ease when I have to have any sort of work done. I’m afraid of needles and someone is always there to hold my hand during the procedure. He does a great job and looks out for my best interest in all situations. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a top notch dentist.

Excellent work replacing a broken crown. He explained the treatment options in detail and understandably, administered proper anesthesia, prepared a well fitting temporary crown, and diligently prepared and put in a well fitting and good looking permanent crown that immediately felt as if it always had been there. A very professional and friendly service throughout the process.

Leslie M. from Prince's Bay, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Schlesinger is amazing. My mom is elderly with dementia and he was wonderful with her. Dr Schlesinger was able to work on her for about over a hour or so. The staff treated her with dignity. The end result was he got to restore her dental implant it came out really nice, she would not allow the other dentist touch her. Dr Schlesinger did a great job with her scaling and cleaning as well. We will be seeing Dr Schlesinger again in six months. We drove in from Staten Island. Way worth the trip

As a nervous patient I used to fear dental visits but that has changed since seeing Dr. Schlesinger. His calm demeanor and welcoming staff put me to ease. Rather than ignore my fears, he answers my questions no matter how irrational they may be. Dr. Schlesinger explains what is happening when I ask and offers words of support throughout the visit. I even get to listen to music as he is working on my mouth which helps to distract me too! I can not recommend him enough 🙂

Emily K. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Schlesinger has been my dentist for over 5 years and each experience is better than the last! He makes each visit as easy and painless as it can possibly be and truly puts my anxiety at ease. He is friendly, upbeat and maintains a very professional office. Most importantly, he is very thorough and careful during every procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Schlesinger for all of your teeth health needs!

Roger S. (Source: Zocdoc)


The dentist was excellent he just didn’t let me know what was wrong and what had to be fixed but also took the time to go through the procedures and answer any of my questions that I had. Was very patient and made me feel like I was his only patient for the whole day.

Roselyn N (Source: Zocdoc)


I had an emergency situation with my son. He was seen on the same day and had all his needs taken care of. I love the fact that everything is thoroughly explained and you are told of any charges before the work is done. Once the work was complete he personally explained all instructions for after care. On a personal level I was also very happy to have received a phone call both on the evening of and the next morning to make sure he was ok.

Patricia B (Source: Zocdoc)


I have been using Dr. Schlesinger for a few years. Not only is he well skilled in his profession, he has gotten to be more personal. No one wants to go to a dentist so having a pleasant environment is very important. Dr. Schlesinger used to be very quiet and it appeared uncomfortable being conversational. Now, I find him easy to talk to and much more personal. Whatever, he did to appear more confident and friendly, keep it up! My husband and I both go to him so we now have had some different procedures with him. We have been very pleased with the results of the producers as well and would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Schlesigner is the most thorough (and painless) dentist I ever had! He takes great care in making sure you’re comfortable and that the work is done right! I moved to NJ 9 years ago and I wouldn’t think of going to anyone else! I make the trek to see Dr. Schlesinger. He’s the best!

Rozi Ennekavi (Source: Google)


Dr S is exceptional, truly passionate about his profession and when he knows it is more than he can deal with he recommends the best Endodontic Microsurgent!He saved my tooth! He could have just taken it! He makes you feel very comfortable! I gave birth to 3 kids but i still get nervous of dentists, he is the first that truly understands it! His stuff is welcoming, helpful and very friendly. This place is one of the best hidden gems of the UES!!!

I am. a long time patient and I have always received the best quality care here. Dr Schlessinger is very competent and has excellent people skills. The rest of the staff is also competent and considerate. I highly recommend this dental office and I am very grateful for all the work they have done for me across the years.

Daisy O. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I found Doctor Schlesinger, through the internet and I could not have gotten luckier. Dentist is very concerned with your problem, and very attentive to your needs. I had dentures done by him and I must say. I have never been happier. Not only did he make me a great denture. He made my existing ones more comfortable for me while I waited for my new ones, which was not long at all. The office environment is great. The receptionist is pleasant and friendly and so is the assistant. The waiting room has a T.V. you can watch while you wait. Speaking of, the wait is never long. I highly recommend this Master of dentistry.

Mike T. from Scotch Plains, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Schlesinger and his staff are excellent.  I have been going to them for a few years now and I find them to be very nice, extremely competent and always willing to spend whatever time is necessary with me.  I never feel rushed and whatever the procedure is they will first explain what’s going to happen before doing anything so I know what to expect.  I highly recommend Dr. Schlesinger because they put me at ease and do great work.

Skyla Duncan (Source: Google)


Sooooo happy I found a very good dentist. The office is clean, relaxing and very polite front desk receptionist. Dr. Schlesinger took such great care of me. He gave me a detailed cleaning, review of my X-rays, and recommendations for my general dental health. Dr. S was really thorough and friendly whilst equally warm, considerate and professional. Great experience. I highly recommend.

Margarette P (Source: Zocdoc)


That was my first visit to the office and to tell you the truth I was very nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. The staff is very professional, courteous and Dr. Schlinger personally did my cleaning and a thorough exam. Answered all my questions and concerns. This is the first time in a long time, that I had the Dentist did my cleaning. It’s been all along dental hygienist then the Dr. does my exam afterwards. I made the best choice and I will be going back for my next visit. Thank you Dr. Schlesinger and staff.

Dr. Schlesinger is one of the best dentists that I met. I went there for a dental emergency with an extremely painful tooth that he treated right away. He took his time to explain me about my condition. His assistant was understanding and courteous. She put me at ease too. He is laid back, does his work meticulously, gently and perfectly. He is great to make his patients feel they are special. Takes his time with educating the patient. His staff is friendly and professional. In his state of the art office I feel like in a spa. I feel relaxed and confident that I got an excellent care with each visit. His multiple certificates, licenses and awards also speak a lot about his dedication and excellence in dental profession. I am lucky that I met Dr. Schlesinger. I continue to see him regularly with my other dental problems too. I learned new things about dental hygiene and my teeth since starting to visit his office. I am sure I will continue to visit Dr. Schlesinger as my regular dentist as long as I am in NY. I highly recommend Dr. Schlesinger.

S M. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Schlesinger is one of the best dentists I know. He is laid back, calm and very professional. He makes sure that the patient’s experience is completely painless and pleasant. Very detail oriented. Takes his time with a patient to make sure everything done perfectly. He knows nuances of his work better than many other dentists. I learn something new about my teeth with each visit. Very gentle with his procedures and manners. Doesn’t rush, doesn’t force the needle when doing numbing injections or with other instruments. Every time I go there I am sure it will be a relaxing experience. He asks if I want music on each visit and plays great music in his office while doing procedures. It feels like going to a spa (except numb mouth after the visit that is unavoidable for certain dental works of course ). The first time I went to his office was because of a dental emergency. I had the worst toothache of my life after some other dentist’s work who could see me only after days. So that morning I felt I couldn’t bear the pain anymore even with several painkillers. I didn’t know how dental emergency service worked or if there were any. I googled, found one and called. It was some kind of a service taking phone calls and connecting patients with doctors who could see patients on an emergency basis. So, I was lucky that Dr. Schlesinger had an available spot or could fit me in his schedule that noon. He was very pleasant just as I met him. He explained everything and shortly after numbing he started to work on my tooth. I was completely painless leaving his office and the pain never came back. I was very impressed by his chairside manners and professionalism. His state of the art modern equipped office is also unusual for doctors I met in NY city. I didn’t have an insurance the first time. He explained that it would be cheaper with insurance, unlike my previous dentist who ensured the insurance wouldn’t cover the procedures that I needed, anyway. Eventually I went to Dr. Schlesinger’s office again after getting an insurance. He is my favorite doctor now. I still have some work to do on my teeth and will continue to visit him for sure. I highly recommend Dr. Schlesinger.

I was always in total panic when going to the dentist but then I met Dr. Schlesinger. He is direct yet patient. He is so amazing skilled at what he does. I know I can trust him to take good care of me and my family and help coach me through the process of a cleaning or cavity filling. I love the fact that I can rely on his office, especially his admin, to help me get an appt when I need it and be friendly and warm when I walk in. His dental assistants are great too. #So Grateful for my dentist!

Michael S (Source: Zocdoc)


He was able to answer all of my questions. He is always very thorough and makes sure that he goes over all the treatment options for a particular situation. He told me that in my case he wanted to find out about the most up-to-date technology. He is an extremely knowledgeable professional.

Nathan H (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Schlesinger is meticulous in detail and proactive in long term approach particularity upon astute assessment of what matter is most imperative within the scope of your dental health. I am typically abrasive to healthcare professionals as I am averse to providing accolades to a science I do not understand, but Dr. Schlesinger’s approach of providing as much information in a clinical manner that is requested, without making the patient feel as if they are a burden is as rare as the quality of his work and follow up is.

I rarely post online reviews but felt obligated to after coming across Dr Schlesinger’s one other google review. He is by far the best dentist I have ever been to and I have proudly been going to him for almost a decade. He has a very soft touch, is very transparent, timely, and makes visiting the dentist as easy as it can be. In regards to pricing, I’ve never had an issue and he was kind enough to allow me to pay in installments when my insurance didn’t cover the amount of work I needed. I suspect the other review might be from a competitor or someone who might be unstable.

Dr. Schlesinger was very thorough in explaining the dental procedure and any possible pain. He was also very fair in explaining the fee structure for his services. It is clear Dr. Schlesinger knows his profession but also keeps the interests of his patients in mind.

My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Schlesinger for over 5 years. All of our visits have been extremely positive. Dr. Schlesinger does his own cleanings and they are the best! Dr. Schlesinger is very professional, knowledgeable, gentle and very friendly….A really nice guy who knows his stuff. I love the care package he gives at the end of your visit, so fun to get a little gift ??

Donna K (Source: Zocdoc)


I was a very difficult case. Dr. Schlesinger not only did excellent work to fix what was wrong with my teeth, but also worked with my insurance company. His staff is friendly and outgoing and they always make sure that you’re comfortable. (I tend to be a little nervous when I’m at the dentist’s office). I highly recommend him and will be using him for future work that I need done.

Colleen H (Source: Zocdoc)


I was relieved to have found Dr. Schlesinger. He was extremely thorough, explained everything that was going on with my teeth and answered all of my questions. I was really impressed at the start when he spoke with me personally about my insurance and cost (I have terrible insurance.) He was very upfront and reasonable. He didn’t do anything unnecessary and reached out to my former dentist for xrays. He was very personable, I found it easy to relax. I would recommend him easily to friends and family. I feel lucky to have come across him

Avital A (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Schlesinger is hands down the best dentist I have ever been to. He’s been my dentist for many years. He is reliable, extremely knowledgeable, and always explains the procedures in detail beforehand. I usually have to have work done when I go in, and it is a pleasant experience. His staff is also friendly and very accommodating. Overall they want you to feel better and never experience any discomfort. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist in Manhattan
