I have been going to Gotham Dental before the name change. I have tried a few other places before I decided that I truly believe that this is the best place for me. The whole staff is wonderful. From the moment I walk through the door I am greeted by a wonderful reception staff. I never wait long for the greatest hygienist Sarah on the planet and onto the best dentist I ever known. Since I have been coming here I have gotten so many compliments on my smile. They also gave me the tools to better take care and upkeep the maintenance on my teeth. I travel over an hour to get here, but this place is so worth it.

I highly recommend Dr. Samuelian. After moving to NYC, I bounced from dentist-to-dentist trying to find the best dentist in Manhattan. None of them gave my teeth the attention they deserved. I was highly recommended to Dr. Samuelian by a co-worker and so thankful for the advice to use him as my dentist. Dr. Samuelian’s team and hygienists made me feel comfortable with the treatment and advice for care of my teeth. They identified that I needed a handful of fillings repaired/replaced that were long overdue for treatment and neglected by the other dentists I saw in Manhattan. I had the work done right away and he made it easy and effortless. My teeth finally feel strong and healthy again.

Dr Avo Samuelian and his staff are the literally best. Have been seeing them for 15 years and would not go anywhere else! They are so kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. Plus the office art is a dream and something great to look at while you’re getting a cleaning (yes there is even artwork on the ceiling!)

Lourdes G. from Chelsea, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Very clean and sterile office. Gotham Dental has gone beyond expectations to ensure that all COVID protocols are followed and their patients and staff are safe! Aside from those necessary precautions, Dr. Samuelian is the BEST! I highly recommend you contact them for all your dental needs!!

I love the team and Dr Samuelian. They are always on time, respectful and courteous. I don’t like going to the dentist personally, but I really like going to see Dr Samuelian and his team. And with respect to veneers or other cosmetic dental needs, he’s an absolute artist. I have a chipped tooth that required a veneer and even my temporary looked amazing.

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


Best dental office I ever visited. Dr Samuelian is very knowledgeable, always gives you best advise. Has patience even for such patient like me who is always scared of the dentist. Fixing all the cavities and crowns he made never gave me a problem. Highly recommend him and his staff. He will spent time with you as much as needed to make sure you got the best solution. Nice friendly office personnel as well, no wait time.

Alexa B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Avo has been my dentist for over ten years and has always been the best. Gotham Dental stays on top of updates and trends in dentistry so you can trust that they always have the most technologically advanced equipment and the most up to date advice on treatments. The office is also beautiful, always impeccable clean and has beautiful art to stare at while you have your teeth cleaned!

I admit I am a bit of a drama queen upon entry -but Dr. Samuelian was amazing with making me feel comfortable and at ease. In fact my work took less time than it was supposed to-And it was a pleasant experience, when dental matters are concerned! I would highly recommend going to this practice!!

I was recommended Dr Samuelian by a friend in London who needed extensive medical and cosmetic dental work while she was living in NY. She maintained it was the best money she ever spent. So, when I found myself with dental complications while working in New York I took the plunge. There’s a reason he may be more expensive than other dentists – his work is unbelievable and why would you scrimp on your teeth?? Dr Samuelian is worth the flight across the Atlantic and I will never go anywhere else. (I should stay his team are also incredibly professional and friendly – I always felt in safe hands and even looked forward to my appointments despite being terrified of dental work usually!)

Marty W. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Not only is the art cool, the atmosphere relaxed, but Dr. Samuelian makes you feel at home. This is by far the best dental experience I’ve had since I was 5 and still getting lollipops after a teeth cleaning. Not that I wouldn’t mind the lollipop for remembering to floss regularly. Dr. Samuelian. Is like an advocate for your teeth. And with the juice I drink and the sugar I eat, and my love/hate relationship with floss, my teeth can use their advocate.

Ms.Phia D. from East Orange, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I never liked going to dentist Ever. But thanks to a recommendation from a former co-worker I must say, my dentist rocks and looks good too.. lol He is very honest, strait forward and well versed about my teeth. Major plus is working around my crazy schedule…*hey Michelle* lol I just referred him to another co-worker of mine.

The team at Gotham Dental has always been stellar with a friendly, knowledgeable, and professional team that always go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and well taken care of. With everything currently going on, they have once again gone above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and safe! Thank you again for a great visit!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Samuelian for over 13 years. Dr. Samuelian is the first and only dentist that I actually look forward to seeing – because of his professionalism and expertise. He’s built an incredible staff, from when you first enter the office and are greeted by Jennifer to when you are thoroughly cleaned and cared for by Tiffany. Dr. Samuelian has me as a patient for life!

Laura B (Source: Zocdoc)


I’m not going anywhere else, ever again. Been to many dentists in NYC, always looking for someone who’s skilled, caring, AND in pleasant surroundings, and Dr. Samuelian is the first to fit the bill. He’s personable and funny, important traits when someone’s about to stick a needle in your mouth. More importantly, he’s patient and soothing when it comes to my sensitivities and pain fears. And he does great work. And, there’s never a wait. Though it’s almost too bad, because the office is beautiful and has great magazines. A rarity in any medical waiting room.

I have been going to Gotham Dental for the past 2.5 years and quality of service is impeccable. Sarah, my hygienist is the most kind, efficient and competent hygienist I have ever had and she also genuinely cares about her patients. Besides cleaning, any other procedures I have needed in the past (e.g fillings) have been painless and effective. Highly recommended!

Tim C (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Samuelian is the real deal. I had gone a very long time without seeing a dentist- Incredibly anxious about the experience- but Avo came so highly recommended by several friends that I finally booked the appointment. The office is more like an art gallery- very cool and relaxing…and the staff puts you at ease immediately after the elevator doors open. Tiffany is the best dental hygienist EVER! I just can’t say enough good things about this place. Dr. Samuelian made me completely comfortable and walked me through every step of the way. Thanks to him and his staff, I now go for regular check-ups and cleanings! No more fear

Dr. Avo is the Best most Personable and Conscientious Dentist I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Going to the Dentist is usually a very tense and anxiety inducing experience for me; however Dr. Avo and his Staff seemed to intuit my every feeling and immediately acknowledge and address my every concern or discomfort. His office is unlike any dental office I’ve ever visited; the staff is warm, friendly, and attentive, and the environment and decor interesting to behold with beautiful modern art on the walls – like eye candy, the gave me something to contemplate while they examined my teeth. Amazing Dental office with an amazing staff. I don’t know of another place like it. Highly recommend to anyone in the NYC area especially those who might be nervous or have anxiety when visiting a dentist

This office is extremely nice, clean, friendly and has exquisite artworks on the walls. I love the sense of aesthetic added to the atmosphere. Everyone there has always been professional and kind towards me. The treatments are always well done and with the latest equipement. I am very happy to recommend this place to anyone looking for a new dentist!! Amazing experience.

I have been going to Dr. Samuelian for years now. I have always had a fear of the dentist and therefore my teeth needed a lot of work. It included everything from implants to veneers and ultimately invisalign the whitening which is the final piece of the puzzle. Throughout the entire process he has been absolutely fantastic and incredibly patient. I recommend him highly to anyone in search of a dentist. The office and rest of the staff is equally wonderful.

Went in for my biannual check up today and was happily surprised to see the changes they made to the reception area and new processes implemented for services to ensure patient safety and protocol during this Covid period. They have implemented new measures when you arrive to take temperatures and sanitizers upon arrival. Plexi glass was installed around the reception desks and seating was updated for spacing if you have to wait for your appt During the cleaning they have added new steps to ensure safety for both the patient and technician. I also had an appt with Dr Samuelian after cleaning and witnessed them sanitizing and prepping the room for my treatment. This was only my 2nd time back in the city since March and I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they made me feel during this appointment. From the front desk to the procedures it all went smoothly and quelled all my anxiety I had prior to the appointment. Thank you Dr Samuelian and Team for making my visit safe!

A R. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samuelian and Hygienist Patricia are, quite simply, the best dental care team I’ve ever had.  Technically perfect, and highly efficient, they make a visit to the dentist almost pleasant.  I always feel like I’m in good, capable hands, and their efficiencies enable me to get in and out, without feeling like I spent the entire day at the dentist’s office.  The premises on E. 19th Street are squeaky clean; I feel secure there with the rigorous safety protocols they have in place.  For an extra perk, check out all the art on the walls.

Jessica P (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Samuelian and his team are the best. Going to the dentist is actually something I look forward to now because I know what great hands I’m in. I’m always seen on time and communication with the receptionist is excellent. Every procedure I’ve had has been quick, efficient, and pain free. I didn’t know dentists could be like this before meeting Dr. Samuelian. I’ve been a patient for years and will be for years to come. The whole office is also full of amazing art!

Hands down best dental experience I’ve had. Part of my tooth broke while at work. I panicked, and called around different dentists near my office. Thankfully, this office was able to squeeze me in. I ran over and hopped right in a dental chair. The dental hygienist was incredible-so informative, so calming, so considerate. She and the dentist worked like a well oiled machine, checking my tooth and saved me from needing a root canal (at least for this visit!). I was back in my office in less than an hour. No one wants to have a dental emergency, but this office made it as painless as possible.

Dr. Samuelian and his team are awesome- consummate professionals and the top in their field. I went to Dr. S years ago with a train wreck of a mouth; he put together a fantastic and well thought out treatment plan. I’ve always shyed away from dentistry, this is the first office I’ve felt confident and comfortable in. The clinic is impeccably clean and they have spent a ton of resources on state-of-the–art air filters, etc. in light of Covid. Lastly, go for the dentistry but be rewarded with an amazing display of emerging artists. Dr. S is an avid supporter of the (NYC) arts community and generously shares his collection with his patients- his curatorial eye has literally made headlines in the NYTimes.

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


Dr. Avo Samuelian and Dr. Steven Alper are the best dentist I have ever seen. Their work is perfection and I would not dare go anywhere else. The whole team is top professionals. Thanks Tiffany for keeping my teeth cavity free for the last 6 years!

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


Dr. Samuelian is great, clearly the best dentist i have had in 15 years living in NYC, if not ever. The office is really relaxing and manages to feel professional without feeling overly clinical. The staff is helpful with cleanings and reception sends you appt reminders and confirmations via emaiI, so you don’t waste undue time on the phone. Dr S knows his stuff and I feel very comfortable while he is dealing with crowns, fillings, ect. I have found him easy to talk to as he couldn’t be a nicer guy but he definitely gets to the point and promptly gets you on your way. I have even referred a colleague who loves him as well. His office is on 19th street in Manhattan, just north of Union Square so i am not sure what this Brooklyn address is all about.

Finally a dentist practice were you are treated as a person not just a number. Went in during Covid right after they reopened and I felt very safe as the whole team takes very seriously every step to ensure patiences safety. Honest and clear understanding of the costs involved with any visit. And finally a nice and well decorated doctor office! Less pictures of cavities that are useless and lots of great art hanging on the walls!

S. V. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


First – and most importantly, the office is super cute! Really comfortable seating (though I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes) with contemporary decor and modern artwork which furnish this loft-style space. So, when I needed to find a new dentist to repair the botched job a possibly uncertified husband and wife “dentist” duo did, I originally chose this place for the location, (close to union square) and was pleasantly surprised with everything else. Without dental insurance though, it seems a bit pricey, (for my parents) even by New York standards. However, Dr. Samuelian is always on time and quick at what he does and knows what he’s doing. He’s also nice to look at and bypasses all the small talk b.s while he focuses on getting the job done. The secretary is also very friendly (she actually appears to like her job?) and somehow always remembers me even though the place constantly seems busy.

I was referred to Gotham Dental by a friend, as I wanted to make sure I went somewhere good and Gotham Dental did not disappoint! Tiffany the hygienist is amazing and very personable. I had a bad dental experience in the past elsewhere that makes me nervous to go to the dentist, but Dr. Samuelian makes sure that I am always completely comfortable and does efficient, quality work on whatever I’ve needed done. I have been coming here for years now, even living in Brooklyn.

Gotham Dental is a fantastic group with great staff. Dr. Kleinfelder and his staff were fantastic to work with. The team at Gotham was very professional and has gone the extra mile to ensure superb levels of cleanliness in our post-COVID reality. Dr. Kleinfelder’s check-ups and cleanings are quick, easy, and painless. His bedside manner is also fantastic – after filling a cavity of mine he was sure to follow up a couple days later to make sure everything was OK.

Dr. Samuelian and his team are second to none. I’ve been a patient for over 10 years and couldn’t be happier with the quality, consideration, and overall experience they deliver. I once made the mistake of going to another dentist for a crown because my insurance would cover more of the cost, and it wound up costing me much more, in both inconvenience and money, because the tooth was damaged and needed to come out. Dr. Samuelian and Dr. Montazem (the surgeon) got me all fixed up with a new implant and crown, and the entire process was smooth and virtually painless. Dr. Samuelian is constantly upgrading his state-of-the art equipment and the whole office is a gleaming, every-changing temple to his thought-provoking collection of contemporary art. Special shout out to Tiffany, my hygienist and now friend, who I actually look forward to visiting every 6 months, and everyone at the front desk, always so friendly and accommodating. The automated appointment reminder system they use makes scheduling and rescheduling as simple as sending a text. If you don’t love your dentist or are seeking a new one, I can’t imagine that there is anyone anywhere providing a better experience than Gotham Dental. Many thanks!

Do you know anyone who loves going to the dentist? I have been going to Dr. Samuelian for ten years and he, along with his team, have completely changed my relationship with dentistry. I enjoy seeing them, even look forward to my appointment. They take incredible care of their patients, are VERY fair and honest with work/pricing and all around amazing people. I love them and their office is pretty fabulously decorated too. I cannot recommend them enough.

I’m a new patient and just recently went for a cleaning and check up with Dr. Samuelian. He was kind, patient and took the time to answer every question I had. I also had a great cleaning from the hygienist who was very personable and knowledgable. Overall, a very good first visit. I found out I had two cavities that needed fillings and had a follow-up a few days later. I was in and out within 30 minutes and the procedure was pain-free. I’ll be making Dr. Samuelian my permanent dentist and I’d highly recommend you do also!

I have been a patient here for 10 years. They make coming to the dentist a pleasant experience. They are knowledgeable about insurance coverage and work with you to make sure you get the most out of your plan. All the equipment is the latest and greatest. Tiffany is the best hygienist – she cares about her patients and tells it like it is. The rotating contemporary art installations and music playlists add a special flare. Thanks Dr. Samuelian, Tiffany, Jenn and the whole staff for years of great care.

My visit with Dr. Samuelian this morning was great. Pain-free, easy and quick. If you have anxiety about going to the dentist, see Dr. Samuelian. If you’re embarrassed, don’t be. His office is not like a dentist office. It doesn’t look like one or feel like one. They give great attention to making patients feel comfortable. He doesn’t want to hurt you. He wants to help you. Go see him. You’ll be happy you did.
