Sometimes there are not enough words to say what you really want to say. Literally they changed my life. I can smile now 🙂 The best orthodontic place in NYC, Dr. Togias and his amazing team can make miracles. Highly recommended. Each and every person that works there did their best so I can have the result I wanted. Thank you so much. There are a few things that you remember in your whole life and you are one of them.

I am beyond happy with my experience at MFO with Dr Togias. I first came in to get help with straightening my teeth. But it went far beyond that. I was a night time teeth grinder. Due to a bad bite and crowded teeth. Dr Togias not only gave me a perfect smile but I don’t grind anymore. I can floss without breaking the floss. I was considering a mouth full of veneers… in the end I saved thousands of dollars and got that perfect smile I always wanted. THANK YOU DR TOGIAS, YOUR THE TOP IN YOUR FIELD! – Braydon

Everyone in the office was very professional and friendly! Dr. Kris and the young gentleman assisting him were knowledgeable and very informative, taking the time to go over all details (the process & plan, as well as expenses & financial options) to give me a thorough consultation.

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


My daughter has recently completed her phase II orthodontic treatment with Dr. Togias, and I couldn’t be happier with the results, Dr. Togias, and his office staff. Every visit is a treat because Dr. Togias has an individual approach to each patient. After two phases of her treatment, my daughter was cranky during her appointments, anxious to get the braces out of her mouth, but Dr. Togias always found a way to diffuse her frustration. It’s an important trait in every medical and dental professional to make a patient feel comfortable, but Dr. Togias takes it to a new level. And despite his busy schedule, he and his technicians always allot sufficient time to my daughter’s appointment. Scheduling and rescheduling is  efficient and easy, and my daugher and I feel welcome in his office each time.

Manhattan Family Orthodontics is an amazing practice. They are beyond professional and courteous and run their clean, efficient practice like clockwork. They have an unparalleled personal touch, and my young daughter not only enjoys her visits there, but also has had great orthodontic results. I highly recommend this practice. If you’re looking for an efficient, professional, happy orthodontic experience, look no further!

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


Dr. Togias is an amazing doctor that made the experience for my children (12 &13 years old ) painless. They actually looking forward to the next appointment! In addition, the office staff is amazing! They are listening and they are helping me every time I need to interact with them. They even remember what I asked them 4 months ago and they offer to provide what I need before I ask. They are all so great! I recommend this practice as a great place because the doctor is great, the staff is friendly and provide the best customer service. In addition they have the latest equipment and tha makes the experience painless. They are the best!!

Review in a word. AMAZING. (ok, I will use more words). Dr. Togias and everyone at Manhattan Family Orthodontics are fantastic.  I am getting braces (1/2 way through two years of braces) and they have made every second of the process totally wonderful.  From the initial consultation (where I never felt pressured), to getting the braces put on (as painless as it can be), to the monthly check-ins (fast, efficient, fun) — it all has been flawless.  The staff is so nice and fun and funny and Dr. Togias is a miracle worker.  Who knew that I could ever have straight teeth again!  Thank you to everyone at MFO – you rock!

I was blessed enough to be part of MFO with amazing doctors and amazing stuff . Since the moment you get in the office you have a super comfortable feeling and ladies on the front desk are so nice and welcoming, fallowing all the protocols for COVID19 . Assistants and Doctors are super professional and they will provide you the best option for your individual case, that can be Invisalign or braces .. I was so happy after they removed my clear braces and you can finally have the smile that you always wanted to. I recommend this office to many of my friends and i am recommending it here as well to all of you. If you want to have a Hollywood smile and have the best possible treatment MFO is the place for you. You can always book a free consultation and see what is the best option for you. Its super easy .

It’s not easy getting and wearing braces, especially as an adult, but MFO makes it as pleasant an experience as possible. Dr. Togias and staff are positive, caring and professional, and they guide you through the process in a way that almost makes you look forward to your occasional visits. And the results are outstanding thanks to great attention to detail and a vast understanding of how teeth and bites work. Definitely recommend to anyone thinking of getting their teeth straightened.

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


We have been so happy with Dr. Togias and his great staff – they are very good with my son, age 10. Easy to schedule appointments and they work with you in regard to payment plans. Dr. Togias is aggressive with his treatment, but always makes my son’s comfort a priority. I highly recommend this Orthodontics practice.

Violeta M. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Manhattan Family Orthodontics is amazing! After endless Orthodontist telling me I most likely wouldn’t be able to expand my palette, Dr. Togias assured me it can be done and my bite will be fixed!! and after just a couple of months I saw fast results. I am so happy I found this place. The whole staff is very helpful and friendly as well.

It is kid friendly environment. The staff is warm and welcoming and knowledgeable. Dr. Togias has a great disposition with the kids. My daughter’s brace adjustment visits are pleasant, the staff and the doctor always ask how she is doing and about her general well being. Is much appreciated. They are very good with keeping appointment times. We rarely wait pass our scheduled appointment time. They have late appointments which is a plus. My daughter doesn’t have to miss school or leave early for her adjustments. We have been with this office nine months. Highly recommend it.

Violeta Zagoras (Source: Google)


Dr. Togias and his staff are the best! I am certainly satisfied with this office and I am so happy I found them. They are very helpful and kind with everything. It was not easy to decide to get braces at 25 but they make it a good experience. They are thorough with the process and explain everything that you want to know.

Erin N. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Breath of fresh air! So many positives…. *clean, bright, happy environment *super friendly staff *latest technology *on time appointments *Dr. Togias is extremely professional and smart, but kind, relatable and great with kids *most importantly they are concerned about perfecting my smile and not about taking my $$…overly fair Nothing to complain about. 🙂

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


I had seen many orthodontists but never felt comfortable with any; that changed when I met Dr. Togias, immediately I felt that’s the right place for me and I signed up on our first meeting. He is fantastic, exepert on his field and truly cares about his patients. The staff is awesome; all are very friendly, knowledgeable and always ensure that all feel right before you leave that chair. P.S. My teeth are lining up beautifully. Aris S.

Dr Togias knows his job and is honest : he doesn’t push for a kid to get braces too early as the kid might end up needing a second treatment. To put it in clear plain english : he is not greedy! Also his staff is always welcoming and takes care of dealing with the insurance (if you are lucky and have an one of course). Dr Togias is ALWAYS ON TIME. He knows how to deal with kids, preteens and teens and takes the time to explain to them the procedure.

Victor O. from Jersey City, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Ouh.. I am surprise that this orthodontist has limited reviews. It took me months to decide who will take care me for three years. I have been for numerous orthodontist for quotes. Glad, I decided Dr. Togias. He and his staffs are too nice, funny, friendly, but professional. No surprise that you will find plenty kids have fun with them. I hate dentist and scare of anything relates to teeth. However, they made me relax and comfortable. His office is super clean, no sting dentist smell and spotless. It is super easy to make appoinment and they will remind you. Need emergency? Need to switch schedule (I have tought schedule) – they happily adjust it to your schedule. When you arrive, they will take care you in few minutes – the longest I wait is 7 minutes. No one like to wait. Isnt it? Is it expensive? Maybe – but he is definetely worth it. My friend got the cheap orthodontist, however, there is a cost in every visit, every emergency, every excuse… He does NOT do that. Am I happy? Yes. Even my wife is thinking to have him after my case done. Please be careful when you decide orthodontist, you will stick with him for years – but I am so glad to choose him.

What genuine service is all about – understanding, sincerity, a caring nature and excellence. We were travellers from abroad with a teenage son in discomfort due to dislodged braces – by good fortune we came across Manhattan Family Orthodontics – excellence from our first point of contact by phone to our treatment by Dr Kris Togias. A very big thank you to Dr Togias and his team!

I am currently travelling from Australia when my bottom wire became loose and lodged into my gums. I searched up orthodontist in Manhattan and Family Orthodontics were the first to come up. They were able to book me in an hour and a half later to fix the problem. Dr Kris took care of me and the emergency I was having. BeIng a lovely and wonderful practice they waived any fees that may have occurred during the small visit. 5 stars for a true family orthodontist!

Lisa D. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I honestly can’t say enough positive things about our experience at Manhattan Family Orthodontics. From the very first appointment when my daughter got her braces on to the last we had the BEST care possible. Dr. Togias and his staff were always so professional, friendly, helpful and accommodating. Also, the Covid protocol was extremely reassuring that they were being beyond safe. We always felt secure going to our appointments. My daughters teeth look amazing and even the personalized follow up care has been great. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for an orthodontist. xx

Can’t say enough wonderful things about this practice and everyone who works there – talk about making a potentially difficult experience so much fun for our son! Dr. Togias and his staff are very professional, accommodating, and thorough, and exceptionally nice. They also put impressive thought and effort into their many wonderful patient appreciation touches. Can’t help but smile with every visit

We had a great experience with Dr. Togias, Dr. Shin and their whole team. From the initial no-pressure free-consultation, up until we ended up moving away from the city and transferred our care to an out-of-state orthodontist, they were always straight-forward, accommodating, and supportive in the process of care. I highly recommend them!

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


Kris and his staff are the nicest people I know. I have two adventurous daughters who fear “The Dentist” (and all related specialists); at Manhattan Family, they relax and feel super-calm, dare I say excited to get on with it. Kris is a dental giant with a massive heart and an incredible understanding of kids – of all shapes & sizes. I cannot endorse a medical professional more highly.

Amy V. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


We are so happy that our dentist referred us to Manhattan Family Orthodontics for my daughter’s orthodontic treatment.  Everyone is so friendly and professional.  The staff helps my daughter to relax and Dr. Togias is fantastic with kids!  They turned an experience I was dreading into a pleasure.  Everything has gone smoothly and the costs were outlined very clearly right from the start, so there have been no hidden surprises.  Highly recommended!

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


I was referred to Dr. Togias for my Invisalign treatment and it’s been a very pleasant experience and my teeth look great after receiving treatment for about a year now. Not done yes as I have some stubborn front teeth but happy to return for my visits until we’re all done. Dr. Togias is an excellent person and orthodontist, and stresses getting the work done properly for what I went in for, so I trust this outfit a lot.

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


I have been seeing Dr. Togias for over a year, I have full on braces. The team is amazing, warm, friendly and they always make you feel like you are their only client. I have a few more months left, my teeth look amazing and my bite has completely changed for the better. I’m 52 and my goal was to achieve straight teeth, I didn’t realize how my bite would improve. I love Manhattan Family Orthodontics, infant, three of my good friends go there as well.

Dr Togias and his team are incredible. I ended up with the pleasure of working with them due to my orthodontist retiring mid treatment. Dr Togias took me as a patient thankfully and it was a great journey! Everyone in the office is friendly, professional and helpful. My teeth were a unique situation and Dr Togias always made sure I was completely happy with my treatment plan. Would definitely recommend!

Dr. Togias, Treated my son severe over bite with professional precision and amazing care. The results, after the braces phase was over is amazing. The staff and friendly environment at Manhattan Family Orthodontics is no myth. It is real, the atmosphere is comfortable. I will also miss the hot chocolate. My son Charles had his braces removed yesterday and is now in the retainer phase, older and more mature he is amazed at his own transformation, big plus he loves the invisalign like retainer and is smiling in the mirror all day. Thanks, Dr. Togias for your amazing skill and professionalism. We all love the results it’s 10 stars. Sheryl and Charles

Corinna W. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Togias and his staff is amazing! I was referred by my dentist for some problems I had with Invisalign and I was not happy about having to go to an orthodontist because… in general I hate all doctors. It’s scary! But I’m happy to say that I was greatly mistaken. I always have the best time when I come in for my follow-ups. Everyone is super friendly, thorough, and they know what they’re doing. They really care about your teeth and always make sure that you’re comfortable. I never feel rushed with all my questions (and I ask a LOT). It’s a fun and professional environment and I highly recommend Manhattan Family Orthodontics to anyone! I was actually really sad that I wouldn’t be seeing them as much after my treatment, but I’m going back in a few months and am really excited! Haha that’s something you don’t hear ever.

Gillian S. from Menlo Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


We had our 12-yr-old daughter with Dr. Togias and Dr. Shin for about a year, and the care was fantastic. We saw great results in a fairly short period of time, and they were very helpful in guiding us through the process. We would have continued our care with them, but we moved away from NY. Due to the move, I was seeking a new orthodontist, and many questions arose during that time period. They (both the doctors and patient care coordinator, Michelle) did not hesitate to take extra time out for me, answering my myriad questions based on the transition of orthodontic care–despite my daughter no longer being an “official” patient of theirs. I highly recommend this practice!

Dr. Togias was extremely personable. He explained everything in full detail. Even made me hold up a mirror to explain some things in my mouth. His assistant, Vacela, is wonderful as well. She called my insurance for me and broke everything down in an easy to understand way. I am looking forward to many more visits.

I just love Manhattan Family Orthodontics. I’ve been going to Dr. Togias for over two years now. The office is always clean, everyone is extremely helpful and friendly, and the best part is that I’ve never had to wait! They have been incredibly accommodating of my schedule. I feel like I’m going home every time I’m there. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough. Going anywhere else would just be settling.

Aimz S. from Richmond Hill, NY (Source: Yelp)


Hands down, Dr.Togias is the BEST orthodontist in NYC! I went in two weeks ago for a consult, something I had been avoiding for years after an earlier orthodontic experience a few years ago that hadn’t gone too well. I still wasn’t sure if I wanted to still go down that route but thought I’d at least go in for a consult and see what my options were. From the very second I stepped into the office, I was greeted with smiling faces and an amazing staff! Pedro (treatment coordinator) was fantastic! Really great at his job and explains everything in great detail. Instantly makes you feel welcome and addresses all of your questions and concerns. Angela (dental assistant) did an excellent job of helping put on my brackets. She was super gentle and very professional! And last but not least, Dr. Togias is absolutely AMAZING!!! I’ve come across orthodontists before but Dr. Togias literally goes above and beyond for his patients and I witnessed it first hand. If it hadn’t been for him, I’d still be walking around with an uneven bite knowing I needed braces but still putting it off like I had been for the last few years. He has superb bedside manners and the friendliest personality! Always smiling, upbeat, incredibly warm and engaging. Knows exactly what he’s talking about and doesn’t try to push you into doing anything you don’t want to do. Dr. Togias educates you and lets you decide which option you’d rather do and guides you along the way. The office itself is beautiful and they have the latest and best technology. I officially got my braces put on October 11th and while I knows its still the beginning, I am 100% confident that I’m in amazing hands and that I chose the best orthodontist in NYC!!
