Roxanne L. from Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Great doctors… Amazing staff… I came in with terrible pain for a damaged tooth on a long weekend. Dr. Rickerby was extremely patient and helpful. I then had a root canal procedure done by Dr. Ali a week after and it was the most comfortable dental work I have ever received. The relief was quick and all medications were effective. Defintely among the best dentist clinics in the Jersey City area. Strongly recommend!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Rickerby’s for several years. Office is always great, staff courteous and skillful. Stephanie was my hygienist today and did a great job. Thorough and gentle. Especially these days with COVID-19, I’m very comfortable and trust everyone in this office to wear masks as appropriate and provide a safe clean environment.

Very professional staff and friendly environment. I am well impressed with how they were able to help me right when I need them the most. The communication is spot on and I never had experienced any trouble at all. Thank you so much.

At the first visit, Dr. Rickerby took a great deal of time to inspect the whole mouth.  He noticed signs of periodontal disease.  His explanation was very specific and understandable.  The hygienist is probably the best I’ve ever experienced.  Just finished my second visit; the work was as close to painless dentistry as I can imagine.  Everyone in the office is pleasant which makes visits easier.

Everyone was professional and very helpful. They were all kind and caring. The Dr. Rickerby was absolutely wonderful! He helped ease my fears and nerves. I had my wisdom tooth extracted and I couldn’t believe how fast it was done. I will continue to take all my dentistry needs here. They’ve got a new patient and a happy one! THANK YOU TO ALL STAFF YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

I have extremely bad teeth and no insurance, I had a Talk with Dr. Rickerby and we planned my treatment. The staff is extremely nice and helpful, Dr. Rickerby is very good with his work, so far no pain at all and today they had to pull some teeth. I would recommend Dr. Rickerby with no hesitation .

I appreciate the warm, welcoming environment that is always present each time I visit Dr. Rickerby office. Dr. Rickerby’s consultation is informative and provides me with an absolute dental plan. Dr, Rickerby takes ample time to explain his recommendations. Upon leaving Dr. Rickerby office, I’m assured that I have a solid solution for my dental requirements ~Winston J

Dr. Rickerby is great! I highly recommend him for anyone who needs dental work done. The appointment for my emergency impacted wisdom tooth removal was very easy to set up during a statewide shutdown by phone. The process was 100% painless and handled with care. Also, Jackie, who is his assistant, is very friendly and had no problems answering any questions that I had in terms of the healing process.

After my 401 K plan, JSQ Dental has been the best investment I made for myself. At the front desk, Stephanie and Rose provided stellar patient care. Stephanie took the time to explain the financial aspect of my dental work. In the clinic, from Day 1 I was made to feel as if I was THEE most important person Natalia had ever assisted. As for Dr. Rickerby and Dr. Malakov, both are the “Picasso” of the dental world. They restored my smile – with minimum pain. I had even referred 3 people while my own dental work was being done. Thank you are very brief words of gratititude I have for this dental practice. I am loyal and always will be. May you all prosper in good healrh.

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made is in choosing Dr. Rickerby. I was and am still very much impressed with the quality of his work. He is gracious and courteous in his demeanor. I love the care and attention given to me not just from him but also his professional staff. It never escapes me just how pristine, clean and professional as well as ‘cutting edge’ his office is. His office has an intimate sense of caring that I love. Dr. Rickerby has finished working on my top set of teeth. They look beautiful and wholesome. Wow, awesome. In other words, I’m having fun. Thanks to you Dr. Rickerby, I can now smile again without embarrassment.

I am not quiet finish with my dental work however I am loving what I see so far. Thank you Journal Square Dental. Never thought I would say those words cuz I don’t like dentist. I am totally happy and satisfied that’s far. Paul E. Eliacin

My first dentist being off of insurance. Although it was at a specific price point, it is absolutely worth it. Their staff, especially Stephanie the receptionist was very helpful in not only assisting me but making sure I picked the right plan for me. They are very detailed with any job they do even if it’s a simple cleaning. They make trips to the dentist not so horrible 🙂 thank you JSQ dental!

I highly recommend journal square dentistry for anyone who is seeking good dental care.

I’m very grateful to have walked into the offices of Journal Square Dental. From my first visit til the most recent, I’ve found the staff and doctors to be of the highest caliber. They set me up with a treatment plan. There was quite A bit of work to be done. The result would be a whole new smile. But after several visits where I always felt very taken care of. The staff explained every procedure and step required to complete my plan. Now I have that new smile and I’m happy to share it.

Doctor Haig H. Rickerby came highly recommended by a friend, and the experience was everything that she said it would be. The Doctor was very knowledgeable, attentive, and personable. The hygienist was very patient and thorough. Staff was very friendly attentive and patient. I’m not easily pleased, so I was pleasantly surprised that I was satisfied with my overall experience. As result, I highly recommend this practice.

OUTSTANDING service!! I went in for a crown and filling and it was painless! Dr. Rickerby is really cool dentist!!. He’s very professional, attentive to detail, down to earth and has a great sense of humor. His charisma and warm personality alone made me feel at ease about getting work done. I’m not a fan of drilling or needles so I put in my airpods to listen to some music during the procedure and Dr. Rickerby gently instructed me if I needed to move my head slightly in a different direction. His whole team is awesome too , there’s never a long wait (although the patient lounge area is clean and comfortable) they are very friendly and they do a thorough job checking prices with your insurance so that you are clear about how much you need to pay on your part. They also take the time to kindly explain things to you. I left the office feeling great like I just left the home of friends that I trust.

When you got a dentist who speaks to you like a person and not just another patient. When you have a dentist gives you reassurance even in the worst case scenarios and pulls through… When you have a dentist whose staff is competent and works as a team…. you have found gold . I had “ dentistphobia” from past bad experiences for a long time … Today , I feel completely comfortable to go have my teeth checked anytime .

The best dental experience my family and I have ever experienced is at this office. From the welcoming staff at the reception, all throughout, everyone is exceptionally kind, informative and they truly do care for their patients. Furthermore, Dr. Rickerby is phenomenal at his work, not only does he focus on every health concern related to the mouth but he also envisions a way to perfect your smile as much as possible. Highly recommended !

Stopped in for a cleaning today and it was a very pleasant experience. Everyone is always so friendly here and prepared for their appointments. I’ve had several visits and have never had a long wait. Had a great conversation before my cleaning and received some really good advice. Overall happy with choosing this location for my dental services.

My experience at Journal Square Dental was very welcoming. Dr. Rickerby and his knowledgeable staff made me feel comfortable. I received amazing treatment from being greeted at the desk with a warm smile, to top notch dental precision, resulting in a better smile, and a boost in self confidence….Thank You Dr. Rickerby and Staff!!!! -LEW

One of the best dental practices I have been to in 20 years! The level of professionalism and care provided by the staff and Dr. Rickerby created a confortable and pleasing experience. Dr. Rickerby was able to answer all of my questions in a clear, conforting and practicable manner AND there was no pain during the procedure. I have decided to continue my treatment plan with him. The office is easy to reach.

Most comfortable deep cleaning ever! I hate the dentist. I usually avoid it as much as possible which is how I ended up a position to need a deep cleaning (oops). I dreaded the appointment. But once I finally got into the office and underway, I was immediately put at ease. No pain at all and Michelle checked in with me the whole time. 10/10 from a girl who dreads teeth cleanings.

Vincent whelan (Source: Google)


The entire staff exceptionally friendly, knoedgle, and helpful. The work is impeccable, I was in a considerable amount of pain and potentially much worse. And within a short amount of time, I was practically good as new, at a very fair price. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone who needs dental work. I was thoroughly impressed and satisfied with the environment and results.

I have not been to a dentist in 5 years. I have had a few traumatizing experiences and although not physically, my last visit to a previous dentist was mentally traumatizing. Coming to Journal Square Dental was by far the best experience I have ever had in my 43 years on this earth. Everyone I encountered made me feel very comfortable and that is important to me. Dr. Rickerby took time to introduce himself to me and went to over my treatment plan. I almost wanted to cry. I had not felt like people actually cared about my health and cosmetic look in a very long time. Every single people I came in contact with from the moment I parked my car, made me feel welcomed and comfortable. I would recommend Journal Square Dental to everyone!

I’ve gone their 3 times so far in the last month and half and intially we had a rough beginning. They didn’t specify that they had parking in back of the building or specify that they were located across from the JSQ path which caused me to be more then half hour late for my very 1st appt. thankfully the staff was very pleasant and the doctor was awesome and it has been that way for each and every appt. no surprises either with all of the procedures and charges. I find choosing a dentist to be a very difficult process but I am so happy to have found them . Especially because i have never waited more then 5 mins and the location is convenient amd there’s parking! Something you never find in JSQ .

I had a metal filling replaced with a composite filling, small chips filed away from my teeth, and an additional composite on another tooth. Dr. Rickerby is very personable and did an excellent job. Everything went smoothly and painlessly. Everything was explained to me in detail. I was also given advice on how to prevent future dental problems. Digital x-rays were performed and were shown and explained to me. I also had the best cleaning I ever had with Debbie, the dental Hygienist. Dr. Rickerby and staff were very professional and nice. The office was modern and clean. Appt. reminders were sent by text, and the wait time was miniscule. I would definitely recommend this practice.

I had a great experience with Dr. Rickerby! My daughter and I were both seen and everything went well. I was well informed about what the plan was and was even shown an educational video about my specific treatment plan. I plan on taking my other children there as well since my daughter had a comfortable experience.

I’ve been a patient here for a year and have never been completely satisfied with the care, especially with the dentist. It’s a very efficient friendly office, the staff, the hygienist are wonderful too to spend time. The doctors care has always been exceptional! Very accommodating and knowledgeable!

Alexis Barros (Source: Google)


Very nice, clean office. I only waited for just a couple minutes before being seen. Had my temperature taken before allowed in back, bc of Covid-19 procedures. Had my cavities taken care of and x-rays taken. Was in and out in pretty reasonable time. The entire staff from front desk, assistants and dentist were wonderful.

My family and I would like to thank Dr. Rickerby and all Associates for being so accommodating, considerate and friendly. From switching appointments without a hassle to cheering you up when you’ve had a bad day. Now I live my life happier and healthier since, during and upon completion of my procedure. I can smile happily again! Thank you Journal Square Dental…

Dr.Rickerby is hands down the best … knowledgeable, professional & caring. He has provided me with quality care during some very serious dental emergencies. I always get compliments on how beautiful my teeth are thanks to my dentist. If you are looking for quality dental work I highly recommend Dr. Rickerby.

Bena N. from Jersey City, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Not many really enjoy the dentist but I aways have the best experience at this office. I recently could not find any free time and had a hard time scheduling an appointment for over 4 months, but the office was very persistent as well as respectfully accommodating. As soon as they found a time that worked for me, they were quick to reach out and let me know so I can be added to their very tight schedule. It’s an inviting atmosphere where you have professionals that take their time in making sure you’re okay. I always feel like my best interest is at hand. Every visit feels very personal/specific to me, regardless if it’s the dentist or the assisting professionals. They all do a good job of making sure I get everything I need. I always know my options and I’m never coerced to do anything out of my favor. I recommend this office/dentistry until I have a reason otherwise.

Dr Rickerby is one of the very best. He has taken all of my dental fears and washed them away. With his gentle hands and his charismatic aura, he has shown me that dental visits can be enjoyable and not as dreadful as they seem. I want to thank him and his staff for always going above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Will always highly recommend to friends and family! Thank you, Journal Square Dental!

My time at Journal Square Dental was very good everyone was very nice and helpful. The doctor doing the cleaning of my teeth was very good and told me things I needed to know about my teeth and how to take care of them. This was not my first time there. Have gotten a lot done to my teeth in the past years. Dr. Rickerby is a very good dentist and I would always recommend anyone who needs a dentist to him.

I usually refrain from giving reviews but I had to give one in this instance due to my pleasant experience with Dr Rickerby and his wonderful staff. I walked into his office afraid to smile because the remaining teeth I had were in such bad shape. Dr Rickerby came up with a plan to get my smile back and with the results thus far I couldn’t be more thankful and happier. It feels great to smile again without being embarrassed 😀 I definitely recommend a visit if your having any teeth issues you will not regret it.
