Madison H.from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Lost my retainers during Covid and with heavy concern for my smile, reached out to Hudson River Orthodontics- even though I’ve had my braces off for 4+ years! I called and expressed my concern and got an appointment as fast as I could. Dr. Matthews does an amazing job and so do his dental assistants. 10/10!!!!

You could not ask for more from Dr Mathew’s orthodontic practice. The entire office is run like a well-oiled machine. He and his staff are readily available and interested in addressing any questions or concerns you might have about your child’s orthodonture. Dr Mathew himself has a gentle and attentive bedside manner, can effectively quell anxious parents and kids, shares best options for addressing your kid’s needs, and then tops it all off by giving excellent patient care. Plus, all the numerous follow-up appointments you’ll inevitably need to make to monitor your kid’s care are handled so smoothly and efficiently by the friendly staff at the front desk. Essentially, the experience of being the family of a patient of Dr Mathew’s checks every single box!

My 14 year old daughter’s experience was stellar….from Dr. Mathew to the talented and kind staff. Always professional and accommodating. Look no further. Your journey to a beautiful smile is a phone call away.

We had such a great experience at Hudson River Orthodontics with my child’s Invisalign. Dr. Mathew took great care of my daughter and made sure she understood her treatment. The whole process was quick and easy. The staff is so friendly and was always such a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend. N

Best Orthodontist in NYC! We have been with Hudson River Orthodontics since 2015. Dr. Mathews is the nicest and kindest Doctor we know. He guided my daughter every step of the way from her early on expanders to braces, and now retainers. He and all the staff members (which are fantastic also) have made the visits fun and pain-free as well as quick and easy. We had the best experience there!

We’ve been going to Dr, Mathew for the past year and a half and our experience there has been absolutely first rate. From Dr. Mathew’s incredible expertise to his excellent bedside manner to the friendliness and competence of his staff, I could not recommend Hudson River Orthodontics more. My son just got his first round of braces off this week, and his teeth look amazing. We couldn’t be happier!

S K. from Jackson Heights, NY (Source: Yelp)


We had a great experience. Dr. Mathew is friendly, approachable and very detail-oriented – which you want in an orthodontist. He patiently answered all of my questions over the past 2 1/2 years. My son’s teeth look fantastic. The front desk is great, and they speak Spanish. The examining rooms need updating. But it’s definitely worth looking past that for my son’s beautiful smile.

My experience at Hudson River Orthodontics could not have been better. Apart from being very knowledgeable, Dr. Matthew has a great attention to detail and always gives his full attention to his patients. He also hand-picks his staff, which could not be more attentive, polite and caring. Rita, his very efficient administrative assistant, makes you feel at home; always greeting you with a smile and going out of her way to make sure everything goes smoothly! Finally, I should add that I am very happy with the result of the treatment!

I had my braces taken off today. So excited! From start to finish, Dr. Mathew was fantastic. He was kind, considerate and always available. Several times I called on weekends with a broken wire. He called back immediately and met me in his office no matter the time. He cared so much and I am very grateful for his excellent care. I highly recommend Dr. Mathew to anyone in need of braces. He is the best!

Chelsea H. from SOUTH RICHMOND HILL, NY (Source: Yelp)


So I moved to new york and had braces for quite some time and I looked EVERY WHERE for a good orthodontist to continue my treatment.However, They were either, too expensive, trying to scare  me so that I immediately choose them/ doing my treatment all over from the very start. So out of coincidence I happened to find out about Hudson River Orthodontics and Thank god I did.Not only did Dr. Mathew get straight to the point  about both mine and my sisters teeth but he was very reasonable and actually seems to care more about fixing your teeth than your money.And they’re very nice and make you feel comfortable, right down to his assistant. I just got my braces off today and I’m extremely happy with it. And I strongly advise anyone wanting to get braces or needing to continue their treatment to go to Hudson River Orthodontics.

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


After 1 consultation, I’m already a big fan of Dr. Matthew. No one wanted to touch the permanent fixed retainer I got installed 15 years ago post-braces, but he had no problem with talking through options with me. There was absolutely zero pressure to make big decisions on the spot (read: Invisalign) which is a big deal here in the city where everyone is trying to make a buck. He spent plenty of time chatting with me, I never felt rushed and we came up with a plan of attack together. Also want to give a shoutout to the incredibly nice staff, so friendly + I could tell that they genuinely want to build a relationship with each and every patient. Big fan + will feel good about giving them my money when the time rolls around for treatment.

Dr. Mathews worked on my daughters braces from start to finish. He really is unbelievable! So concerned about his patients. A wire was cutting into my daughters gums, I called the answering service and he immediately called back. He was in the area and took a cab on a Saturday night, met us in our lobby and what took under a minute cut the wire. .THERE WAS NO HOUSE CALL CHARGE…….I cant say i know any orthodontist that would do this. REALLY A DEDICATED ORTHODONTIST. HER TEETH LOOK BEAUTIFUL.!!!!! He also was very on time with all appointments. I highly recommend him.

Madison H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Lost my retainers during Covid and with heavy concern for my smile, reached out to Jackson Heights Smiles. Even after having my braces off from them 4+ years ago, and losing the retainer 3 times, they welcomed me with open arms.  I called and expressed my concern,  getting an appointment as fast as I could. Dr. Matthews does an amazing job and I appreciate the comfortable environment. His dental assistants are perfection. 10/10!!

Lorock R. from East Harlem, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


If orthodontics can be a pleasure, that’s the word for our experience with Dr. Mathew. Throughout my daughter’s orthodontic experience he was at once conscientious, funny, kind, enthusiastic and not just knowledgeable but something of an artist. We hit a few bumps in the road–questions like to pull more teeth or not to pull more teeth–and he always had alternate routes in mind. I also believe he tried to keep the years in braces as minimal as possible, without a lot of crazy hardware in my girl’s mouth. We will honestly miss our visits now that her teeth are straight as rails and beautiful! Unlike my own orthodontic experience 100 years ago, this doctor cared about aligning the top and bottom sets of teeth as well. Not only this, the women who work with, for and around him are outstanding. Everyone is beyond nice: conversant, cheery, attentive and humor-filled. I honestly don’t know why people would go anywhere else. Top doc, folks, and I have no ulterior motivation to write this other than being inspired by excellence, kindness and a little bit of impish humor that abounds in the office. Blush, Hudson River Orthodontics.

I LOVED my experience at Hudson River Orthodontics. The total service experience is unmatched…Dr Matthew is patient, professional and most of all available. Scheduling appointments around my busy work schedule was extremely easy. I was very reluctant to try Invisalign as an adult but after seeing the results, it was an outstanding decision for me. 5 stars!

I am currently having my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Mathew and I could not be happier. He and his staff makes everything so easy. Be it making appointments, rescheduling, and checking my insurance. I wish all offices were like this. I have told many friends about the exceptional experience I have had.

Alyza B. from Jackson Heights, NY (Source: Yelp)


My daughter has been a patient of Dr. Matthews for just about a year.  Our experience with him has been fantastic!  His staff is professional and very friendly!  Front desk people make a world of a difference to a family! The office is gorgeous!  It’s not easy for a teenage girl to get braces in the first place – but Dr. Matthews and his staff made the process easy and painless.  Her braces came off on February 1, 2016 and her teeth are perfect!  No staining, straight and best of all – She smiles bigger than ever now.  Thank you Hudson River Orthodontics!

My two daughters and I can happily say we are all patients of Dr. Mathew’s, and recommend him wholeheartedly. The entire staff (shout out to Rita and Sabrina!) are wonderful and accommodating. They remember absolutely everything from billing to appointment reminders to what days my girls have after school activities. Dr. Mathew makes the whole experience worthwhile. He never shortcuts the appointment or the treatment. My Invisalign wasn’t absolutely, positively, 100% perfect on one back tooth (that no one would ever see!) yet he recommended we add a couple of trays and get it right. No additional charge to boot. I can’t say enough about the positive experience we’ve had at Hudson River Orthodontics. Thanks to the team

Highly recommend Hudson River Orthodontics. Dr. Mathew and the staff are very kind and understanding. I enjoyed the comforting environment each time I had an appointment. Dr. Mathews and the staff also made the process easier by providing helpful explanations and insight each visit. I am very grateful for their help in fixing my smile.

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


My son has been seeing Dr. Mathew for about two years and just had his braces removed last week. The process has been seamless.  The staff are professional and responsive to our scheduling requests. Dr. Mathew is an amazing orthodontist who has stellar technical skills and is an all-around nice person. Thank you, Hudson River Orthodontics!

Corey M. from Lexington, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Matthew and the entire facility is kind, professional, and accommodating. You will forget that you are at an appointment in NYC because of the attention you get, which is hard to come by in this city. I am very pleased with the results and would 10/10 recommend having orthodontic work done here.

Lisa Tuckman Graber (Source: Facebook)


I had a wonderful experience getting my child Invisalign. The entire staff is so kind and very easy to work with to book appointments, Dr. Mathew was a pleasure and made sure my child understood what she needed to do. The whole experience was top notch. Bonus for being right in the neighborhood.

Hudson River Orthodontics is the best Orthodontics in the city. They take great care of each of their patients, are super kind and have phenomenal service. I have been using Hudson River Orthodontics for 10 year and they have always helped with any problems and have given me and my family amazing smiles. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my orthodontic care. If I could I would give them six stars.

Dr. Mathew is one of a kind. A true professional and a fantastic orthodontist. I have seen firsthand the quality of his work on many occasions. If you are contemplating either braces or clear aligners for yourself or your child, and you want it done well, Dr. Mathew’s office is the way to go.

S M. from Northwest Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


In line with what the previous reviewers have written, I have nothing but praise for this office. Dr. Mathew and his staff are pleasant, professional, and prompt. A good office may posses two of these qualities, but rarely does one demonstrate all three! As for the treatment itself, Dr. Mathew replaced my bonded retainer with a removable one. He quickly squeezed me in the day after the wire broke, even though he was not the orthodontist who had placed it. He didn’t push any additional procedures on me and answered all my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend this place for all-things orthodontia!

Josie A. from ASTORIA, NY (Source: Yelp)


My name is Faith and I am 13 years old.  I first saw Dr. Mathew in late August of 2013.  At that that time my teeth were very crooked and needed braces.  Dr. Mathew was very kind and spoke to me about the process of getting braces.  Every time I went to his office he always treated me in a sweet and calm manner.  At each appointment he always let me know what the next step was going to be in regards to my teeth and braces.  Dr. Mathew’s office environment is warm and welcoming.  His receptionist Sabrina always has a sweet smile and greets me as soon as I enter the office.  Dr. Mathew’s orthodontist assistants Rita, and Ada always come in with a big smile and treat me in a professional manner.    I am excited to say that in June 2015 I got my braces off and I love the way my teeth look!!  Dr. Mathew is a great orthodontist and I would recommend him to any one.

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


I shopped around many different orthodontists before landing on Dr Saju Mathew for my adult Invisalign treatment. And I’m so glad I did!! He showed me so much care and attention to detail, and he was honest and upfront with our treatment plan from the beginning. Also Kerry, the receptionist, was lovely and so accommodating. I cannot recommend them enough!

Arielle S. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I recently completed invisalign treatment with Dr. Mathews and I have to say, this is the nicest staff I have ever encountered at any doctors office. They are always so friendly and really worked hard to accommodate my tough schedule when it came time to making appointments. I’m very pleased with the results of my treatment and would recommend anyone thinking about getting invisalign to come here for it.

We highly recommend Hudson River Orthodontics. My son just completed his Invisalign treatment and we are thrilled! Dr. Mathew and his amazing staff were professional, friendly, and accommodating with his school schedule. Wait time was next to nothing; phone calls and emails were returned promptly; visits were quick and easy. From the first consultation to the final visit, it was an all-around great experience! Such an amazing smile! Thanks again to everyone at Hudson River Orthodontics

Dr. Mathew was very professional and provided high-quality, effective service. My prior orthodontist in Massachusetts took the view that Invisalign was not an option to affect the necessary changes to my bite, but Dr. Mathew–given his background and experience–had no issues designing an Invisalign treatment that was relatively quick and produced the exact results for which I was looking. Dr. Mathew was thorough and careful throughout, attentive (and adaptive) to my concerns and arranged multiple follow-up visits to ensure that my post-Invisalign treatment is effective. (Specifically, he had multiple sets of retainers made so as to ensure that the results of my treatment are maintained.) Dr. Mathew’s staff was friendly, organized and accommodating, and his offices are clean and up to date. Highly recommend Dr. Mathew and Hudson River Orthodontics.

A friend of mine recommended Dr. Saju Mathew on the Upper West Side. I am an adult patient, but had braces as a kid. I had been having horrible teeth grinding/clenching at night. My dentist made me a very small front tooth bite guard a few years ago that I was not satisfied with. I was happy to get Dr. Mathew’s opinion. He took time to explain the grinding and it’s consequences on my teeth. He took a look at a tooth that had continually been chipping and I felt like he did a careful assessment of my prior dental/orthodontic work. Dr. Mathew fitted me for a bite guard (quick, gum-like mold). The office called me to schedule a pick up and even emailed me to remind me of the appointment one day prior (a pleasant surprise). I returned to pick up the bite guard and Dr. Mathew checked the fit in my mouth: I’ve been wearing it since and my headaches and jaw aches have disappeared! The office was easy to find, bright and cheery. The staff were super friendly and pleasant. Dr. Mathew was extremely professional, warm, and nice — and took the time to answer my questions without feeling rushed. I am very pleased with the outcome on my teeth and would highly recommend him to other patients — adult or child.

Absolutely wonderful. He talked with me for a long time and made me feel really comfortable. Even recommended I go see a cosmetic dental surgeon so I know all my options before we proceed. He also showed me some of his work and it looks so great. Thank you, Dr. Mathew!

Dr. Mathew is one of the nicest and most highly competent orthodontists I have ever met. I went to Dr. Mathew after having completed a year of Clear Correct (like Invisalign) with my dentist. I was very unhappy with the result and decided I needed to see an orthodontist to fix it. Dr. Mathew immediately figured out how to fix the remaining overlaps without requiring me to prolong the trays. Each visit was a total joy as I knew I was in good hands and Dr. Mathew couldn’t be a nicer person. I highly recommend him.

Amanda D. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Mathew at Hudson River Orthodontics.  I just finished my Invisalign treatment and couldn’t be happier with the results.  Dr. Mathew is a knowledgeable and professional.   He spent a generous amount time with at my first consulting appointment making sure I knew my options and in each follow up appointment until I was completely thrilled with my new smile.  Scheduling appointments was always easy.  Dr. Mathew and the office staff are flexible and friendly – always willing to work with my hectic schedule.  Dr. Mathew is not only a fantastic orthodontist; he has a delightful personality that makes you feel comfortable with him from the start.   I highly recommend using Dr. Mathew at Hudson River Ortho – you’ll be glad you did!
