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

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


I met with 2 other orthodontists before meeting Dr Goodman and he was the clear choice right from the onset. I liked his approach, demeanor and he seemed to know what he was doing when he proposed the treatment plan, which was realistic and not overly conservative (using the other 2 consults as reference points). As background, i wore traditional braces as a teenager for a year and never wore my retainers after i was done so there was shifting in both the top and bottom rows. Over the course of my Invisalign treatment, he proved to be patient, exceedingly generous (with his time and resources), responsive, and never dismissive when i raise any concerns (i may be guilty of perfectionism). I get 2 refinement rounds with my treatment and he actually gave me a 3rd round to get to the result i wanted. I’m very happy with the outcome and would recommend / have recommended Dr Goodman to my friends and colleagues. Special mention to his staff who are always super friendly and proficient!

As a senior who long ago, regretfully, abandoned night time retainer wear, I sought orthodontic correction. I happily found Dr. Goodman after lots of researching and asking for recommendations. His name was first, without hesitation every time. Not only is Dr. Goodman enthusiastic, personable, thorough and knowledgeable, he evidently loves what he does and it shows in his dedication to his work. His fees are totally reasonable and I am delighted with the results. He is available in midtown and has a Riverdale location as well. Whichever is more convenient, you won’t find a better Orthodontist. I love my smile!

So friendly and helpful for out-of-town emergency appointments! My daughter had a band fall off during our visit from Seattle, so her wire and spring were not staying in place. Checked out reviews, called, and kind receptionist said they could fit us in within a half hour. Very professional and clean setting with super nice staff. Turns out we could have gone without the band until our next regular appointment, but they put one on so my daughter stayed comfortable. Dr. Goodman came out to welcome us to New York afterwards. Another example of how nice New Yorkers are!

Dr. Goodman and his whole office are amazing.  My son is at the “night guard” stage (as we like to call it) of his Invisalign treatment and we could not be happier with the results.  I was definitely concerned in the beginning that my son (age 11 at the time) would not be diligent in wearing them or would constantly break or lose them but Dr. Goodman told us to give them a chance.  He was 100% right.  My son wore them when he needed to and finished all his trays and his teeth look great.  He was happier because, aside from having to get used to speaking with them in, most people didn’t really seemed to know they were there and I was happy because he didn’t have the discomfort of normal wire braces and probably saved me multiple trips to the office because of him breaking wires or brackets or… The whole experience from start to finish was great!

I’m midway through my treatment with Dr. Goodman and he’s been truly excellent. Adam is incredibly transparent with how everything works and has been on call whenever I’ve had a question. I don’t think I’ve ever had a response back so quickly from a Dr before! His staff are also lovely and accommodating whenever I’ve had a last minute date change. The progression I’ve had with my teeth has been fantastic and can’t wait to see what the final round will eventually look like. The only thing I regret is not coming to see him sooner.

Ryan K. from Chappaqua, NY (Source: Yelp)


About 4 months ago I was told that I needed to undergo Jaw reconstructive surgery. Before I went into the surgery I needed to have some orthodontic work done and was recommended to Dr. Goodman by multiple surgeons. Dr. Goodman did an excellent job positioning my teeth before the surgery, but an even better job of communicating with me, and my surgeon, in order to make sure that everyone was on the same page. Not only did he use cutting edge technology, but also made the extra effort to order and use fully customized hooks that would aid in the surgery. What really separated Dr. Goodman from other the Orthodontist’s was his friendliness and ability to communicate in an efficient and effective way. Only being 20 years old and having to go through a 9-hour Maxillofacial surgery , I was always nervous. But Dr. Goodman was very calm and stable and reassured me that I was in the best hands. Now, 6 weeks after surgery, I was able to complete a full recovery within a summer and am heading back to school in good shape. I would 10/10 recommend Dr. Goodman as he has clearly gone above and beyond to do the best possible job.

Ithan had a great experience with Adam Goodman and Goodman Orthodontics.  He was followed for a few years until he was ready to begin treatment, he gave us various options (we chose Invisalign which was a breeze, just as he promised) and his costs were thousands less than some of the other great NYC orthodontic offices.  The office is large and clean and the staff is friendly. And he charges nothing for the first meeting and evaluation.

I trust Dr Goodman implicitly. I have a complicated case and have been to a number of dentists and orthodontists for consultations in how to fix my spacing issues — many of whom, try to convince me to go with expensive procedures and move on. Dr Goodman has been incredibly generous with his time to ensure that I find the best treatment plan, given my priorities and my budget. He continues to take the time to listen to me and explain all of my options in terms that I can understand. Dr Goodman is incredible responsive and patient. Most importantly, he takes a personalized approach and is truly looking for the best plan for my goals. I could not recommend Dr Goodman more.

Dr.Goodman is a literal miracle worker. I’m still in awe of the transformation he did to my teeth. Pretty sure mine was the biggest over bite he’d ever dealt with. Even though he’s all the way up on 57th st if I had to go through treatment again I would still choose Goodman Orthodontics. Great doc with a great team. Thanks Dr. Goodman and team. You are THE BEST!

Rita G. from Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have always had a very crowded smile with crooked teeth. Throughout my teenage and young adult years I visited many orthodontists but never felt comfortable enough to commit to the treatment that was recommended. The proposed timelines were at least 3 years and the cost of treatment was always very expensive. My teeth and smile continued to be a source of insecurity for me but as I got older I convinced myself that it was too late to seek any intervention. It was only my upcoming wedding that pushed me to consider visiting an orthodontist again. After tons of research I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Goodman. As soon as I met Dr. Goodman my entire outlook changed! He took the time to thoroughly examine my teeth, smile, and bite and addressed all of my concerns. I told him that I would be happy if he could improve my smile for my wedding but he assured me that I could expect to have straight teeth by then. He estimated 12-15 months of treatment that would consist of braces and Invisalign. I started my orthodontic treatment in February of 2017 and within 11 months my braces are off and my teeth are straight! I still have a few months to go to complete my treatment but I could not be happier! It is amazing what a confident smile can do. In addition to the incredible treatment provided by Dr. Goodman, his staff is also fantastic. Everyone has consistently been professional, courteous, and very accommodating. I cannot recommend Goodman Orthodontics enough!

Dave F. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have some spacing between my front teeth and I was looking for somewhere to get an Invisalign consultation near my apartment and came upon Goodman Orthdontics via google. I met with Dr G and Lois who filled me in on how it works and then a  the Dr did an examination. This guy is so honest that he suggested I don’t get orthdontics because my bite was “perfect” and orthdontics would shift my mouth around ruining my bite. He told me that cosmetic dentistry would be the better way to go and referred me to some colleagues in that field. After he told me this, I was kind of bummed that I wouldn’t be going back there as a patient of his. Based on my little experience there, I can’t imagine this guy’s work and professionalism being anything other than top notch.

Dr. Goodman is by far one of the most kind and professional doctors I’ve visited. I finally have the smile I’ve always wanted due to his Invisalign treatment. His level of availability and perfectionism has always been appreciated! If you want to be serviced by an experienced doctor than Dr. Goodman and his team are the ones to visit. You won’t regret it!!

Pratik S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Goodman is really good, the office works on appointment and you never have to wait more than 5 to 10 minutes. The staff is very friendly and the office is very clean and nice atmosphere. I got my Invisalign treatment completed here and I am thrilled with my results. The results are worth it at the end, trust the process, trust Dr. Goodman you will be in goodhands.

Rabindra S. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


If you or someone you know needs orthodontic work done i highly recommend Goodman Orthodontics. Dr. Goodman is an expert at what he does and has personally trained over 1,000 dentists across North America, how about that on a resume. Goodman and his well trained staffs will work with you to design a treatment plan to specifically meet your needs at a cost i guarantee will be worth every penny. Ive just completed my Orthodontic treatment at Goodman Orthodontics and i haven’t been smiling with this much confidence in years literally! Goodman’s staff members are professional and extremely friendly which makes every visit a comfortable one.

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


I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Goodman and the entire staff at Goodman Orthodontics. After years of wanting to straighten my teeth, I decided to find the best orthodontist in NYC for Invisalign. I did my homework and knew the cost could range from $3000-$10000. I was prepared for the investment but what really sold me on Dr. Goodman was his deep knowledge of orthodontics. He was extremely honest during my consultation and spent the time explaining the needs and challenges of my situation (none of the other orthodontist I consulted with did this). In my case, I was getting married in 7 months time, and he tailed the process to accelerate the straightening of my teeth for the wedding at no additional cost. Dr. Goodman was very upfront that they will not be 100% perfect in time for the wedding. My smile looked amazing in time for the wedding despite still having 5 months left to go! Dr. Goodman’s staff is the best too! They are always happy to see you and are super friendly and talented. I still have a few months left to go but I am so pleased with my choice of using Dr. Goodman for my Invisalign treatment. He really cares about his patients and getting the best results possible for you.

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


I’ve now completed my treatment and wearing my retainers. Everything went well. After I wore my retainers for a couple of weeks, I noticed that my bite was a little off towards the front. My bite was not closing properly over one tooth. Before I had a chance to relay this concern to Dr. Goodman during my check up, he noticed it himself and made minor adjustments which helped tremendously. I’m happy with my treatment and don’t feel the need to hide my smile anymore. Staff is friendly and waiting time is minimal. No regrets.

Kiki W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am really happy with my result! I got Invisalign treatment. It took me about 8 months. I had bad protrusion and crowded teeth. Now, no more of these ugly teeth! Now I feel so confident when I smile! I am a big believer in this quote, “You pay for what you get.” I somehow got the gist that some people will try to bargain by getting treatment done as soon as possible. If that’s what you want to do, then I don’t think you should get your treatment here because Dr. Goodman delivers only high quality work. High quality work take time. Dr. Goodman was really attentive and understanding of the kind of result I wanted. He emailed me photos, explaining the process and giving me better visuals of what the result might look like. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my orthodontic care. And all the staffs there are super friendly! If you are looking for the best of the best, no need to look any further than Goodman Orthodontics.

I’m so happy I chose to go with this place. Dr. Goodman is very knowledgeable and works hard to make sure that you’re happy with your results. The front desk staff is always responsive and friendly. I’ve had to change one or two appointments around in the past and they took care of it without any issue. I definitely recommend this team!

Sandra F (Source: Google)


I have tears of joy today! I always wanted to get aligners but only with the best! I’m a 30 year old woman and I always wanted to have a beautiful smile! I can’t believe my smile now! How I started and where I am! I’m so grateful to have com across Dr. Goodman! He is seriously the best! So dedicated and extremely kind! His office and staff were the sweetest! I remember I walked into his office and saw so many pictures of beautiful smiles and I wanted that signature smile! I can honestly say that’s me now! So so happy. Thank you Dr. Goodman!

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


Dr. Goodman and his staff have been truly attentive, conscientious and helpful since I started treatment with them about a year ago; they try to accommodate my work schedule, and everyone is always so pleasant, nice and informative. Invisalign does not work overnight, but with Dr. Goodman’s expertise and attention to my case, I am pleased with the progress I have made thus far. My treatment is nearly over, and while I am excited to be done, my visits to his office will be missed.  Dr. Goodman was recommended by a friend and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others who are seeking that elusive “perfect smile” as well~ MK

Brandon Y. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I just moved here from Texas and was in the middle of my Invisalign treatment. I needed to have my attachments taken off and Dr. Goodman was more than able to accommodate me. He got me in immediately and took them off within 15 minutes, that’s all! His staff were amazing and I can’t thank him enough for accommodating me. Other orthodontists were quoting me massively expensive amounts to get this procedure done, Dr. Goodman was more than understanding.

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


Thank you Dr.Goodman for making me the best smile! I have been coming to Dr.Goodman since 2014, the time I first move to New York as a college student. I decided to do invisalign treatment over braces after having consultation with Dr.Goodman. As a young adult, I always fear wearing braces that would make me feel less confident. In my case, I had a severe condition where my teeth were overcrowded and misaligned top and bottom. However, after talking to Dr.Goodman, he made me stress-free and comfortable as he explained to me step by step about the treatment process. He breaks down the complicated concepts and very patiently walk me through the treatment process, listens to my needs and takes consideration of my preferences. What made Dr.Goodman stood out the most was not only his professional expertise in his field but also how much he cares about his patients. I love coming to visit Dr.Goodman and his staffs, I feel so loved and welcomed. Now five years after, I couldn’t be happier with the choice I made. I also recommended Dr.Goodman to few of my friends, they all said the SAME thing, very satisfied and happy with their results! I highly recommend Dr.Goodman to anyone who seeks perfection and quality of care.

I highly recommend Dr. Goodman. About a year ago I scheduled a consultation to see how I would be able to correct my significant overbite. He thoroughly and patiently explained the options I had, which included wearing Invisalign. Along the journey he always took the time to answer any questions I had whether it was via phone call or text message. With a couple months to go, I can honestly say I’m extremely satisfied with the results to date!! Also, I would like to acknowledge his great staff who are simply the best!!

Dr. Goodman and staff are amazing, all very professional and respectful. I was treated with braces a few years ago and I’m very happy with my smile. Now my almost 8 year old is starting her orthodontic journey and I couldn’t have asked for a kinder or more patient orthodontist. She loves him!

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


Dr. Goodman and his staffs are GREAT! It has been over 2 years and he’s still not sick of seeing my face… Dr. Goodman has been very patient with me as I’m somewhat OCD and we are now beyond my projected treatment time because I didn’t mind spending extra time to get the most out of the treatment. We are working on problems that weren’t originally proposed and he didn’t ask for an extra dime. Also, I need to give credit to the staffs, almost all of them are super friendly and welcoming. Prices here might not be that appealing, but it’s worth investing and if you amortize it by your life expectancy before denture it really isn’t that bad… (MAKE SURE TO LIVE LONG!!) I do recommend Dr. Goodman and his office if you’re somewhat OCD looking for professional care and results.

The Bitchy W. from Sunnyside, NY (Source: Yelp)


Deciding on braces at the age of 48 was no small task, but upon meeting Dr. Goodman I knew that if I was going to follow through with this dream of mine, he was the person who would do it. I have no regrets. The staff is lovely and I truly appreciate how they remember my name when I walk in the door. Dr. Goodman himself is very friendly and thorough, always explaining what he is doing and making sure I am am comfortable. The same thing can be said for every single person who assisted him. I also like how he gave me an honest appraisal as to what to expect with my teeth. I love my smile now. When I was 13 years old, a dentist told my parents that I needed braces, but it was just too expensive for them. After years of wanting braces and then finally getting them as an adult and paying for them myself, I feel like I truly appreciate the experience much more than I would have as a child. On the day I had my braces put on, when I went to the front desk to schedule my next appointment, I actually started crying with gratitude. Thank you, Dr. Goodman. You fulfilled a want that I have had for over 30 years.

Christine S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I am a former patient of Dr. Goodman and want to post a follow-up now that my 13 year old daughter just finished up her orthodontics with him. She started seeing him when she waas 10, with terribly misaligned teeth (a former thumbsucker) and a bad attitude. She was self-conscious about her teeth, and because of a prior traumatic hospitalization, a ton of anxiety about any sort of medical procedure. She went through a variety of processes overseen by Dr. Goodman, including an extraction by an oral surgeon, and I had the pleasure of watching her gain confidence in herself and trust in Dr. Goodman over time, that manifested in her daily life as well. At the beginning she wouldn’t sit in the chair without me holding her hand, and by the end, she didn’t even need me to go into the office with her. She feels great about her teeth, and her smile looks great.  The patience and positivity she experienced at Dr. Goodman’s office made all the difference. They are the best!

YellowMaple S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I am so grateful to Dr. Goodman. My teenage daughter had an extremely complicated case and had been treated by another orthodontist with less than perfect results. On the recommendation of two trusted professionals–our dentist and a dental surgeon–we asked Dr. Goodman if her case could be improved. He was optimistic and confident and began treatment with Invisalign–and he was right. Her alignment quickly improved. What’s more, he is a perfectionist who is continuing to fine-tune to achieve the best possible result. Thank you Dr. Goodman!

From the first consultation to the ongoing monitoring of my 15 year olds progress, even long after completion of initial treatment, Dr. Goodman has been amazing. I decided on his office, because of the 3 orthodontist’s I’d consulted with, he was the only one who presented us with a plan that didn’t include pulling four teeth. He presented an option that was painless, less expensive, and took half the time. Not that he rushed anything either. In the end, my daughter’s teeth are beautiful, and she got to keep all of them.

Maggie Berg (Source: Google)


I highly recommend Dr. Goodman. I was referred to him a few years ago by a friend who said he was fantastic. We went to meet him and we liked him right away. He saw my son many times before he ever needed any treatment. It is rare that you find a doctor that is so honest and will tell you when nothing needs to be done. He builds a comfortable rapport with patients – both kids and adults and he really explains everything so you can fully understand your treatment every step of the way. Dr. Goodman and his team are very supportive and responsive – you can call, text or email and you will always get a timely response.The office has followed all the safety protocols and they have been very careful and responsible during this pandemic.

Yi C. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Goodman and his assistants are great. I have done lots of research and consulted other orthodontist before I went to Dr. Goodman. First of all, he provides free consult and more affordable treatment price(I paid &120.00 for a consult in another orthodontist office but I don’t like it). Second, Dr. Goodman always sees me on time(waiting no more than 10 minutes when I arrive on time) because he and his office staffs work very hard to eliminate clients’s waiting time. The most important thing is that I have seen significant improvement of my teeth alignment since I started wearing invisalign in Dr. Goodman’s office. He is very knowledgeable and caring. He always asks me that what is my concern about my teeth before starting a new set of treatment. He then incorporates my concern and his professional opinion to design new aligners. I’m very happy with my treatment so far. I really appreciate Dr. Goodman and his team members who have been putting their effort to maintain the office to be so organized, clean and cozy. I will give him more than five starts!!!

Avigayil T. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Goodman for invisalign. He and his staff were always prompt, professional and friendly. I looked forward and enjoyed my visits! I felt very cared for and comfortable communicating my concerns. Dr. Goodman and his staff listened carefully and always addressed my questions. The service was superb because the quality across the board was bar none. I would only recommend one orthodontist in the city-Dr. Goodman! It was a pleasure to be his patient. My teeth look FANTASTIC.

Wonjae Y. from Chatham, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Goodman is a terrific orthodontist, but the characteristics that make him special and visits to his office is his personality. Dr. Goodman is charismatic, outgoing, and cares about his patients. My wife and I have been repeat patients (our fault, we didn’t wear our retainers!) so we’ve been to his office a lot. We see that Dr. Goodman manages his staff so that they are highly qualified, professional, and friendly. I’ve seen a couple of incidents where Dr. Goodman managed the situation with finesse, humor, and positive encouragement, and I can see how his influence guides his staff. As for his ability, Dr. Goodman is great. He spends a lot of time explaining what he’s doing so that we understand the process and does a great job of making our teeth look great. Now only if we could get him to stop being a Mets fan!

Dr. Goodman is exactly what you want in an orthodontist. Not only was I happy with my 1+ year worth of Invisalign—I found myself really looking forward to my appointments because he and his staff are so friendly and they make me laugh! Dr. Goodman shot straight with me from the beginning & I really appreciated that. He told me what I’d need to do to have good looking teeth. He told me the costs. He told me the time & effort I’d need to commit. And if I followed his guidance, he told me I would have great looking teeth. And now I do. My plan required me first to get Invisalign, followed by a bunch of work at my regular dentist. (I had ground my teeth down to nothing, so I needed crowns.) Dr. Goodman worked closely with my dentist to make sure my plan was seamless. It’s scary spending so much money with separate orthodontists & dentists—but Dr. Goodman communicated with the dentist throughout the entire process. That coordination is essential. His personal involvement throughout my treatment also gave me peace of mind, which is great when you’re spending time & money on your teeth. I grew up in Missouri and finding new medical stuff in NYC was intimidating for me because this city can seem so impersonal. Dr. Goodman’s office staff is genuinely friendly and he’s just a really guy who really cares about his patients. I highly recommend him. You’ll enjoy your visits!

Betina J. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


When I came to Dr. Goodman’s office, a year ago, I was a bit skeptical about the Invisalign treatment because it seemed too simple. I had worn braces for three years as a teenager, but my teeth had shifted and were no longer aligned in a pleasant way. On my first visit, Dr. Goodman was quick to assess and name all the problems I had noticed and was unhappy about. I was mind-blown by his knowledge and experience. I could not have made a better decision. I lived abroad throughout most of the treatment and only saw Dr. Goodman a few times, but he made sure my treatment would not suffer. I’m quite finicky when it comes to aesthetics and I am absolutely 100% satisfied. His staff is great, patient and knowledgeable. Sunny, a member of the staff, is the kindest person you’ll meet. He always spent as much time as was needed to make sure I had no doubts as to the process of the treatment. I cannot thank this crew enough for the smiles I am about to give!
