So grateful to Dr. Jalbout and his team! After moving to NYC 3 years ago I struggled to find my go-to dentist. Especially one that I trusted to do some straightening and veneer work. Dr. Jalbout was so genuine and professional! His whole team was very warm and welcoming and I appreciate the transparency and flexibility with the cost (Especially after being over charged at other NYC dentists). I use to dread the dentist and was putting off this procedure but now I feel like I’m in great hands 🙂

This is the best dentist I’ve ever had. They get 5 stars because they check all the boxes: a dentist who is friendly, thorough, and a clear communicator; a front office that is organized, helpful and proactive; and dental hygienists who are gentle on your mouth and very pleasant company. I originally chose them for their office’s proximity to my work, but even though I now work in Brooklyn, Making You Smile is well worth the trip.

Kathryn B. from Manhattan, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jalbout is such a conscientious practitioner. I had very bad experiences with previous dentists (to the point that I needed a root canal) so I was very anxious about going to a new dentist. After a lot of internet research, I chose to see Dr. Jalbout for an emergency filling replacement. He was so professional and caring during this procedure, that I chose to come back to him for the eventual root canal that I needed (due to my previous dentist). During the entire process, he was extremely patient in explaining procedures and answering my many questions. Unlike other dentists who just make you sit in the chair and don’t tell you what’s going on, Dr. Jalbout explained what he was doing and why he needed to do it. Dr. Jalbout has made me trust dentists again! I would highly recommend Dr. Jalbout to any friends or family. I completely agree with other reviewers that his advice is honest; he definitely has your best interests in mind – not his own financial profit.

Dr Jalbout is a wonderful highly skilled & dentist who is also very kind & patient – always available to answer any questions & always explaining clearly. I’m so thrilled that he is my dentist! I used to be anxious during dental procedures but now I’m calm & confident since I trust Dr Jalbout completely. Dr Jalbout is certainly tops in his field!! The staff is also highly competent & pleasant -always patient & ready to answer any questions & accommodate any situation. I highly recommend Making You Smile & in fact, I’m smiling more now – thanks to my beautiful teeth!

Nemanja B. from Ann Arbor, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jalbout is by far the best dentist I ever saw – he is personable and pleasant, but above all professional and competent. I had the misfortune of having two root canals done in the same year and both turned out to be pretty complicated – he’s taken incredible care of me, seen me at a few minutes notice when needed, followed up multiple times by phone to check-in on my status and overall provided great care! His technicians and the office manager are alike professional and personable to the point where any unpleasantness/fear/anxiety I might have had before a dentist visit is gone.

Gail A. from Bronx, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jalbout is as good as it gets! He is kind , gentle and really cares. I have been seeing him for all my dental needs for over 10 years! My daughter and son in law see him as well, and they love him too. He treats you like family. Whenever I have a problem with my teeth , I call and he makes sure he has time to squeeze me in. I give him a glowing review! His staff is excellent and proficient. They make the effort to get to know his patients. You are warmly greeted by Cybelle’s smile as you walk through the door, and she makes sure you stick to your twice a year visit! All in all I give him five stars!

I have been Dr. Ziad Jalbout’s patient for approximately 10 years. During that time he has given me excellent care every visit. I should say at the outset that Dr. Jalbout and his entire office staff have been extraordinarily diligent in the era of Covid-19. The PPE worn by all is state of the art, and the air in the office is constantly recirculated. I feel safe and well-looked after at all times. I saw Dr. Jalbout yesterday for the extraction of an infected tooth and the placement of a bone graft in preparation for an implant. He told me what was going on every step of the way, answering all my questions thoroughly. During the procedure, he and his assistant Diana worked hard to keep me comfortable. And, considering that I was undergoing dental surgery, I was. This morning I am feeling no pain. Although I was prescribed pain medication, I have so far taken none. The post-op instructions posted on the Making You Smile NYC website are thorough, and I have found it easy to follow them. In short, I can recommend Dr. Jalbout (and his entire staff) highly and with no reservations. He is the best dentist who has ever treated me.

This is by far one of the best dental offices I’ve been to. Alma did the cleaning and she was extremely professional and thorough, she left my teeth perfect and the best part is it was completely painless. Dr. Jalbout was also great and very helpful about my situation, giving options and tips. I already booked my next check-up with them and my husband’s as well. We can safely say we found our dentist in New York. Can highly recommend!

Rebecca L. from Manhattan, United States (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t lived in New York for almost 5 years, but I still travel back for dental appointments. Nothing to add that hasn’t already been said, just here to echo the rave reviews. The whole team is phenomenal and goes out of their way to make the experience as pleasant as possible while providing top-notch care.

Sam R. from Ithaca, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr Jalbout and his staff are incredible! He takes Aetna PPO. I’ve been recommending him to all my coworkers. Everyone here were very attentive and patient. The most detailed teeth cleaning I’ve ever had! They don’t double book appointments so I didn’t have to wait at all! Dr Jalbout also gives really great referrals. My wisdom teeth extraction via his referral went very smoothly and was the cheapest price out of everyone my coworkers and I spoke with by far

Romina Hendlin (Source: Google)


I had a wonderful experience at this Dental Studio. The staff is super nice, welcoming and are all extremely protected which gives you a feeling of clean and responsible environment. Alma was the person that did my cleaning and she has such a great hand for it. I didn’t feel pain and she made a thorough cleaning! Dr. Ziad Jalbout was great and I liked how professional he was. I would totally recommend this dental studio!

Gil B. from Manhattan, United States (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Jalbout’s for over two years now – The office is always professional, clean, engaging. Everyone is very good at what they do and they work well together as a team. Shout out to Claudia and Chantea who always take excellent care of me. Whether it’s a periodic cleaning or an emergency that had to be tended to fast, Dr. Jalbout and his team have always come through for me. I highly recommend them!

Glenn E. from Manhattan, United States (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Ziad Jalbout for several years now.  He is an excellent dentist and runs an excellent practice.  Dr. Jalbout has a warm, engaging personality, the utmost professionalism, and a real caring for his patients.  Everyone in his office is very good at what they do, from the front desk to the hygienist and dental assistants.  Simply the best!

D M. from West Village, Manhattan, United States (Source: Yelp)


THE BEST. I’ve had a number of dentists over the years and can confidently say that Dr. Jalbout is by far the best. Professional, talented, patient, friendly, honest, informative, technologically inclined but not pushy, I feel incredibly fortunate to have found him. And his staff! You know when you find a great doctor but their staff is terrible? Not here. They are so helpful and courteous, happy to see and assist you in every way. I have two illustrations regarding Dr. Jalbout’s work: first–and this may seem relatively minor but demonstrates the care he takes–when he gives you novocaine, it doesn’t hurt. That’s because he administers it slowly, something few dentists show the patience to do. Second, I came to Dr. Jalbout after an earlier dental implant–put in by someone else–failed, a horrible experience. Dr. Jalbout’s replacement went in so smoothly I recall thinking “that’s it?” I will not go anywhere else. If Dr. Jalbout were to move his office to, say, New Jersey, I would seriously go there. And I avoid Jersey at all costs. Did I mention that my cousin is a very successful and professional dentist? Ziad Jalbout is way better.

Dr. Jalbout is absolutely amazing. I can’t say enough good things about this place! It is so clean, the staff is very friendly and caring. I needed an emergency dental implant and everyone there was so comforting and kind. I am extremely impressed with the outcome and was in very little pain post surgery because Dr. Jalbout did such great work.

Nel A. from Manhattan, United States (Source: Yelp)


the best dentist i’ve had. the staff is soooo friendly and caring. and the doctor himself is wonderful too. the first time i went to him (he was recommended by a friend) was for an emergency. i wasn’t even a patient but they fit me in. they took very good care of me. i’m so happy i was told about him. i always recommend him to my friends…even if they aren’t looking for a dentist 🙂

Zeynep Gunes Kurtoglu (Source: Google)


I went there with some thought because of the Covid-19 but I was so relieved at my first step in. everyone was so careful, clean, everyone who works there was wearing a special helmet and they check temperature and oxygen level when you get in. Dt. Ziad is a great dentist, he explained everything detailed, answered all my question, and gave me exactly what my mouth needs. He wasn’t like he’s doing because it’s his job. He listens, he understands, he asks and then gives the best treatment by explaining why you need it. I’d recommend to anyone who needs a dentist. And if you forget your mask even for a moment, they remind you 🙂

Best dentist I’ve ever been to in my whole life (a life with a lot of dental work – implants, root canals, etc). Extremely professional studio, great staff and service, exceptional team that works together to provide a seamless experience. I always feel well taken care of, that the standards of everyone on staff are extremely high, and that they deeply care about your oral health. Dr. Jalbout is amazing and I highly recommend him. Worth the price. He solved what turned out to be a very minor problem (flossing incorrectly) – which other dentists recommended a gum graft for! Since going here I can’t imagine seeing another dentist. All of the hygienists are top-notch as well.

Marouen D. from New York, United States (Source: Yelp)


I have been with Dr Jalbout for over 5 years and had an excellent experience the entire time. He is professional, caring, pleasant, and take the time to explain everything. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. I also like the fact that he works on Saturdays. I had two emergency situations. Dr Jalbout was very understanding and helpful and I was able to have an appointment the same day.

Andy V. from Hancock Park, Los Angeles, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr Jalbout is my hero! Growing up, i had a mean dentist, which made me terrified of going to the dentist as an adult. I put dental care on the back burner due to my phobia until my wisdom teeth started to give me problems. I asked a friend for her dentist info and she recommended Dr Jalbout. I had my wisdom teeth pulled by Dr Jalbout and it was painless both during and after. I had very minimal discomfort after. He does a very thorough exam using state of the art technology to give you the best exam possible and explains everything in detail. He discovered cracks in my old silver fillings, provided me with close up pictures of the cracks that he took with this tiny camera. Today he removed the silver fillings and replaced with white fillings. No pain during or after ( even the shot to numb my mouth was painless) and now my teeth are pretty! NO SILVER FILLINGS! It looks like i’ve never had cavities. His office is quiet, peaceful, employees are super friendly, and i can honestly say i enjoy going to the dentist.

Stacey Lyons (Source: Google)


Dr. Jalbout and his staff are simply top notch. They are courteous, professional and always put my best interest first. During my last visit, I had an extraction, a filling fixed, and Dr. Jalbout updated the bonding on my front teeth that I have had for the past 15 years! My smile has never looked so natural! I trust Dr. Jalbout and his staff blindly (which is a first as far as dentists go, lol). I’m looking forward to being a Making You Smile customer for years to come.

Jessica Z. from Las Vegas, United States (Source: Google)


Dr. Jalbout’s office is consistently professional, on-time, and friendly.  I have been going here for maybe 4-5 years now, and I have never had a single issue.  The receptionists are always helpful and friendly, the hygienists are the same, and Dr. Jalbout is always kind and will explain/answer any questions I have.  I cannot recommend this office enough.  I started going here because I lived in the neighborhood, but even after I moved, I still go here because it’s worth the trek!

Sam J Shelley (Source: Google)


I needed a new dentist, and I did my research and this one felt right. I was not disappointed, this office was amazing! Friendly front staff. Alma did a great job with cleaning, very professional and so friendly. You can tell that Dr. Jalbout really cares about his patients, so attentive and focused on your needs.

Oya A. from New York, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jalbout is very professional, gentle, friendly and accommodating. He truly cares about you as a patient. He thoroughly reviews your x-rays with you. He takes the time to explain everything about your treatment, what he is doing and why he is doing it. He checks in often to make sure that you aren’t feeling any pain and that you are completely comfortable before proceeding. He checks his work meticulously and makes adjustments until he is satisfied and everything is perfect. He also always follows up to make sure things are going smoothly after procedures or when you have questions. He texts you to check in at the end of the day or over the weekend to see if your teeth are OK. He gives out his cell phone number in case something goes wrong. And when you do call him in case of emergency like I did when I had an unbearable toothache, he does meet you at his office at 10pm to start your root canal treatment. Other plusses: Everything is ultra hygienic – very important for me. His staff is incredibly friendly as well. The dental assistants are very attentive and considerate. Cybele, the patient coordinator, keeps the place running like clockwork with always a big smile on her face. They are also open every other Saturday, which is great if you can’t make it during the week.

I don’t write reviews unless my experience is truly amazing or super frustrating/disappointing and when I do write reviews, I take my time to depict my experience as vividly as possible. I have been a patient of Dr. Jalbout since 2007. He is the best dentist I have been to and believe me, I have been to many dentists in Europe, Boston and New York. He is super knowledgeable, professional, nice and gentle. After a thorough diagnosis, he explains you the problem and shares with you different treatment options with pros/cons, answers your questions very thoroughly and helps you make a decision on the treatment plan. The first time I had been to Dr. Jalbout, I had been suffering from harsh pain in my front tooth for a long time intermittently, had been to many dentists, all had done tests but no one was able to figure out what caused the pain. Dr. Jalbout not only did tests,looked at scans but also took the time to ask me targeted questions about potential incidents that might have caused the pain. He diagnosed that there was a cyst in my gum, caused by a trauma I had when I was a kid. He removed the cyst (which was huge) successfully! Since then, I have been to Dr. Jalbout many times for regular dental treatment and he never disappointed me. Recently, I have not been happy with the color of my teeth, in particular the one with rooth canal. I told him that I want to have a veneer. Dr. Jalbout told me that first we should try to do teeth whitening, internal whitening on the tooth with tooth canal to save the tooth and simultaneously to whiten it. I have been very much impressed with his suggestion of offering me a less costly and more tooth preserving treatment. His staff is also very nice, caring and helpful. I have never seen neither Dr. Jalbout nor any of his staff members with a frown face. They always smile and put me at ease. I strongly recommend Dr. Jalbout to everyone, even to the people who are afraid of going to dentists!

Grace O. from Fullerton, United States (Source: Yelp)


I cannot sing enough praises about Dr. Jalbout and his entire team! From the front desk staff (Josie and Carmen are the sweetest!), the hygienist, and the dental assistants..they are all a bunch of rockstars. Truly professional and with the best bedside manners. I recently switched to Dr. Jalbout’s office after the worst experience from my first dentist, who suggested the most outrageous treatment plan for me; I would have had to pay between $6,000-$8,000 out of pocket even with insurance! I was extremely skeptical, and decided to give Dr. Jalbout a try; I am so happy with my decision to switch over. His second opinion made all the difference, and I am so relieved I switched to his office. He is very practical, highly professional, efficient, and has an amazing bedside manner. I’ve recommended him to my colleagues who’ve had horrible dentist experiences such as myself. They take exceptional care, and no accommodation is too little; they even apply chapstick on for you (shout out to Justina)! No one really enjoys going to the dentist, but Dr. Jalbout and his team really makes each visit as painless (with an appropriate amount of novocaine) and seamless as possible. Thank you, Dr. Jalbout + team! Thank you for restoring my faith in dentists.

Kevin C. from New York, United States (Source: Yelp)


Had the absolute best experience yesterday at Dr. Jalbout’s office. I had an emergency early in the day, had chipped my front tooth. My job requires me to be in front of people most of the day, so as you can imagine, that is not ideal. I just moved from NJ to the city so I don’t have a dentist here yet. Being a new patient, I was hesitant but called them after finding them on Yelp and cross checking with my insurance’s website (Aetna). I told them the issue, and within 30 minutes I was back on the phone with them confirming a 4pm appointment. I have a bit of a dentist phobia, which I mentioned to them. Everyone in the office was amazing! Gabby, who was helping me most of my visit, was so calming and described to me everything the doctor and the hygienist were going to do to me. Within 2 hours, I had a bonded front tooth that looked good as new, and I was able to get fit in for a cleaning as well. Long review, but worth the read. This place is fantastic! I will now be a long time patient of Dr. Jalbout’s office. Thanks again everyone!

I had an emergency on the weekend and could not get in touch with my normal dentist… I called Making you Smile on Saturday morning and was seen within 2 hours of my call… the staff was so nice and I was well taken care of. I was in and out within an hour and my tooth was fixed- I am so grateful that I was taken in on the weekend even though I was not a regular patient. The staff and doctors were amazing and I would recommend Making you Smile to anyone!

Kimika Banfield (Source: Google)


If you’re looking for an office with state of the art technology, cleanliness, a beyond friendly staff, and a Dr. with phenomenal bedside manners and skills, your search is over! Dr. Ziad, the dental assistant, and the hygienist exude knowledge, relatability, and professionalism. I absolutely enjoy every one of my visits. There’s never a wait, it’s always clean by industry standards, they take extra precaution when considering COVID-19, and they’re always eager to explain procedures and processes. The front desk is a fabulous reflection of the culture as well. They’re always friendly and patient with amazing communication when discussing billing, scheduling and answering questions. It’s without a doubt after your first appointment you’ll look forward to your second.

Anne B. from New York, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jalbout is a wonderful dentist. I’ve been going to him for about three years, even though I moved to California. As soon as I know I’m coming back to New York for a visit, I book an appointment! Which, come to mention it, is easy to do because they have evening and Saturday hours. He is caring and thorough and I always feel like I’m in the best hands. I trust him more than any almost any medical professional I’ve seen (I went to the same pediatrician until I was 21 years old, otherwise he’d be at the top of the list!). I usually need a little extra novocaine if I’m getting a filling, and he knows that and makes sure I don’t feel any pain before he starts doing anything. He explains everything he’s doing, and answers my questions eagerly. And I ask questions! He is very transparent about costs, and makes sure you understand the price differences if he presents you with treatment options. His staff is also happy to discuss insurance, procedure costs, and payment options. Everyone in his office is remarkably friendly. They all seem happy to work there. Most importantly, I never feel like anyone is rushing to get to the next patient. I know that they all care that I’m comfortable, and that my teeth look and feel as good as possible before I leave

James M. from Astoria, United States (Source: Yelp)


Truly the best there is. You never feel like you’re just a number or being taken advantage of. Everyone from the front desk to the hygienists to Dr. Jalbout himself take the time to talk you through anything you might be apprehensive about. Really happy I found a regular dentist in NYC. My appointments are always on time and expedient, making lunch break visits my preferred slot.

Brandon Williams (Source: Google)


I have gotten fill in here, they are by far the best done that i have ever experienced. The staff is friendly and very on top of billing and scheduling. They will not only remind when it is time for a new appointment, but suggest times in their upcoming slate. I will never use another dental service,5 out of 5 from me! Update went for a routine cleaning, and they were able to do a fill in on the spot. Truly the best!

Claire Kinnen (Source: Google)


I hadn’t been to the dentist in years and was putting it off. It’s what I’m most afraid of when it comes to health care. A friend recommended this dentist office to me and I can’t say enough good things about them. They were helpful, put me at ease, and made the whole experience positive. They are clear about what’s needed, costs, and care. The staff is excellent. I have referred several people here and will continue to do so. Thank you Making You Smile Dental Studio!

Gareth L. from Financial District, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr Jalbout is absolutely AMAZING! I hated the dentist and would never go. I met with Dr Jalbout and the staff made me feel VERY comfortable and 1.5 years later I am completely obsessed with and actually get exited visiting the dental office. All I can say is thank you and I am so glad I have a dentist for life and Dr Jalbout has given me something that I would of only dreamt about years back. Now I smile with confidence and trust every little bit Dr and team recommends. I cant thank this team enough but if you looking for a team that has a high attention for detail, pleasant (like you family) and makes you feel SO SO SO comfortable – this is it! I HIGHLY recommend Dr Jalbout hands down! He is simply AWESOME!
