Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Madeline E. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Stanescu earlier this year. Normally, it takes quite a bit of time for me to get comfortable in a dental office. Basically, I don’t like going. And it takes me longer to get ‘comfortable’ with a new dentist. I was extremely fortunate to be a patient at Midtown Dental Care Associates. After working on my teeth, Dr. Stanescu pointed out a growth on the left side of my nose. He suggested I see a dermatologist, sooner rather than later. I said, ‘ok.’ Dr. Stanescu looked at me directly and said, “It’s important you get that looked at, promise me you’ll go right away.” Again, I said “ok.” Three months later I went to the dermatologist. How bad could this growth be – I had been treating it like a pimple that wouldn’t go away. Three months later I was diagnosed with skin cancer. I’ll be going into surgery later this month. “Thank you” doesn’t even begin to cover it. Here is a dentist who will examine not only your teeth, but one who is also aware of the whole patient. I am deeply grateful. Madeline K.

The best dental care I have received, hands down. They took an appointment to fixed a chipped tooth of mine the same day it occurred, and I walked out good as new. My other appointments have been exceptional. State of the art technology, and the time and care put in by the staff and John’s diligent explanations assure you that you’re in the right place.

My dentist retired and Doctor Stanescu was recommended to me. Anyone who has had their dentist or hairdresser for a long time knows it’s scary making the switch to someone knew. But this was one of the best recommendations ever. Doctor Stanescu is super great at what he does. He’s really meticulous and innovated and really takes the time to talk and care about your concerns. Today was my first teeth cleaning their and I was blow away by how great the hygienist was. Jasleen Kaur was so thorough. That was the best cleaning I have ever had, plus her knowledge of the teeth and gums was impressive. I have very sensitive gums and she handled me with such care. This dental office really has the best Doctor and Hygienist in Manhattan, I highly recommend.

I’ve been coming to Midtown dental care associates for several years and have continued to be impressed with the level of attention and care that I have received. Every procedure is thoroughly explained. They have the latest technology and the staff is friendly and helpful. They’ve always accommodated my work schedule and have create a very comfortable environment. I had to get a crown inserted today and everything was done in office and in one day. I’m very please with the care I’ve received.

My appointments with Midtown Dental Care Associates have been consistently high-quality, professional, fun, and great value. It would be hard to find this level of care for the price anywhere else in Manhattan. Dr. Stanescu’s approach to preventive dental care is cutting-edge. The entire team is friendly, courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the latest technologies in dental health and wellness. I really like that the patient is included and consulted about the proposed care plan. The entire team work together to reduce anxiety and to help the client to relax which makes for a very pleasant experience. John, Michelle, and Melanie create an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect. Midtown Dental Care Associates is a compassionate practice where you’re made to feel like family.

I thank God for finding Dr. Stenescu at Midtown Dental Care Assoc. Just prior to finding him I went to my union dentist, who told me due to an infection I would need a new, larger bridge on my top front teeth, which would impact 2 additional teeth not part of the original bridge. I was not happy about having to file down 3 more teeth, but because of the infection I had to move quickly. I actually paid the dentist in advance of the work and made an appointment to move forward. But before that appointment I mentioned the above to an acquaintance who thought the price was high for what I described and suggested I get a second opinion and she gave me Dr Stenescu’s number. From the moment I called this office I felt so comfortable and felt I would be in good hands. Dr Stenescu is caring and an expert in his profession. He “saved” the 2 uncapped teeth. He even supported me in getting a refund from the union dentist! I think that was above the call of duty but he is just so supportive. The bottom line though is that his work is impeccable. My new bridge is gorgeous and so natural looking. My front teeth never looked so good! Dr. Stenescu is a master. Since then, I’ve needed a crown on a molar. The state of the art equipment Dr. S uses meant it was a one appointment visit, without even needing an impression! Once again the work is impeccable. I had two fillings completed on the same day! I know this review is lengthy but I want people to know they can trust Dr. S and know they’re teeth will be in the best hands. Even the staff there is top notch.

Excellent root canal experience with Dr. Stanescu. Wendy at the desk made the logistics (scheduling, rescheduling, and payment) easy. Dr. Stanescu explained the root canal process and answered all of my questions. He and his aide were attentive at every stage. For example, they: 1) checked in regularly on my pain levels and adjusted local anesthetic as appropriate; 2) applied copious amounts of Vaseline so my lips didn’t dry out; 3) gave me headphones to listen to music when the sound of the dental drill began to freak me out; 4) regularly asked if I needed to spit or rinse; 5) carefully readjusted the crown for a perfect fit; and 6) gave instructions for how to care for my tooth between stages of the procedure. Additionally, Dr. Stanescu told me about other dental services provided. I’ll be returning for a cleaning and whitening. Highly recommend this place. I suggest you see if this dentist is in or out-of-network. It’s out of my network, but insurance does chip in.

Midtown Dental Care is exceptionally well at what they do. I’ve been seeing them for a couple of years now, and I’ve always looked forward to each meeting. Dr. Stanescu and the rest of the staff are really friendly! Jasleen is definitely the best Hygienist I’ve had. She is efficient with cleaning and to-the-point with what her patients are doing right with their teeth, as well as what they could work on.

As a result of COVID-19, I had an over due dental appointment for cleaning . I was suppose to have my teeth cleaned back in March but kept postponing due to the pandemic. I was nervous because I know when I wait a long time for an oral cleaning, the experience is always unpleasant and painful. To my surprise, my visit today was quite the opposite thanks to Jasleen and Dr. Stanescu. They both always have a friendly and professional demeanor. Jasleen (the hygienist) was gentle and took her time with me. I know I did a poor job in maintaining my teeth these past few months but Jasleen did not reprimand or shamed me -rather educated me on how to improve my oral hygiene. Dr Stanescu still makes me feel at ease after 20 years. He is the only Dentist I trust. So if you need a good dentist and hygienist, pay them a visit.

I have been a patient of this practice for over 10 years. As a medical professional myself, I recognize the high level of thought and care give by the staff and doctors. The facility is state of the art and well maintained. No stone is left unturned to make the patient experience as optimal as possible. The doctors are exceptionally skilled and caring. I would highly recommend this practice.

In a city with tons of dentists to choose from I can say that Dr. Stanescu is by far one of the best! Prior to making my appointment with Dr. Stanescu, I scoped the internet to find a dentist based on certain criteria and with a little help from online reviews, of which many of them were positive, helped me make the decision to see him. Let me say that all the positive reviews that he has received are well deserved. Dr. Stanescu took time to explain the procedure step by step. He is an excellent and gentle dentist who made my dental experience very comfortable. Not to mention the state-of-the-art equipment he has which built my crown right before my eyes! That alone was amazing to watch! I’ve never had a dental visit like this before. I will honestly say that Dr. Stanescu is a wonderful dentist and I highly recommend him!

The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Every precaution is taken to ensure the patient’s safety. The dentist, who I’ve seen for a few times now while my regular dentist is self-isolating, was fantastic, with a good sense of humor; he detailed the steps he was taking, and the reasons for them, throughout the process. I could not ask for a better dental experience.

Dr Stanescu and the staff at Midtown Dental Care Associates are amazing! I’ve been a patient of his, since I needed my first filling 15 years ago. His practice has the latest technology and equipment. I recently had a crown done, everything was completed same day… He explains everything, before and during the procedure.. cannot say enough great things.. I recommend that anyone go to him and the practice!

My experience with Dr. Stanescu far surpassed others; he clearly takes pride in his work and makes sure his patients are handled with the best care. I needed a crown which we all dread… but Dr. Stanescu and his highly skilled staff were able to get me through the entire process in just one short visit! Anytime I enter his office I’m immediately greeted by the front desk in a warm and inviting manner, but the day I came in for my crown appointment it just so happened to be Patient Appreciation Day and Dr. Stanescu had a masseuse in the office offering massages, so I was able to get a nice unexpected relaxing massage. This is exactly the type of trip to the dentist I want. No wait time, state of the art equipment, friendly and caring office staff and free massages it really doesn’t get better than this. If you’re looking for a new dental office- try them out, you won’t be disappointed!

I’ve had nothing but really great experiences with this practice. Dr. Stanescu filled four cavities for me last week, explained in detail everything he was doing throughout the entire procedure, allowed me to watch in a mirror as he worked so that I could see exactly what he was doing and why it was needed, informed me about all of the unfortunate things that can happen to a tooth (but so far haven’t, knock on wood) after any dental work, and was very clear about the next steps that I need to take for the health of my mouth. I feel fortunate and absolutely confident that I’m in outstanding hands with him, his practice, and his staff — who I must add are some of the nicest, kindest people I’ve ever met in life, let alone in a doctor’s office. Five stars, no question.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Stenescu for about 10 years. His practice has led him to a few different locations but he’s so good that I follow him wherever he goes. Now, he’s conveniently located near Grand Central which makes scheduling between lunch breaks very easy. I have bad bones/teeth so over the years, I’ve had about 10-12 fillings, three root canals with crowns and more recently veneers on my top front four teeth for my wedding. Not only is his technique top notch (I know he uses the most advanced materials and x-ray technology) but he explains everything before he does it and I really appreciate his care in my comfort as he’s doing it. I always hated going to the dentist but he makes it a lot more tolerable because of his empathy and swift technique while doing the best job I’ve seen of any dentist. The biggest thing I want to thank him for is my veneers. I did about 20 trays of Invisalign (with, regretfully, a different dentist) and my front teeth were still crooked. I was always conscious of my smile because of my teeth. When he put in the veneers for me, he explained why the material and technique he uses gives a more natural look. Even my friends who work in dentistry commented on how natural it turned out. I’ve been so happy with them and now I’m smiling all the time 🙂 I always recommend Dr. Stenescu to all my friends and my coworkers because I think he’s the best. He’s always very reasonable and fair with pricing and the quality of his work probably demands a lot more than what I pay for it, though, I’m happy to pay what I do 😉 Thank you, Dr. Stenescu!!

I’ve been taking my mom here for the past two years, and they make you feel very welcome right when you walk in. Melanie, the office manager, is very personable, super helpful and puts you at ease immediately. Dr. Stanescu has done great work on my mom’s teeth and is extremely knowledgeable with many years experience. If you’re looking for a professional, elegant environment, this is the perfect choice. It is spacious, impeccably clean, modern and has a great location, right in the heart of midtown, just off of 5th ave near the public library. As far as I’ve observed, they do every kind of oral procedure possible. I highly recommend this dental office!

I know dr. Stanescu is an extremely professional dentist although I haven’t done any dental work on my teeth but he injected my lips with botox and let me tell you he will be the only one I will ever go to for the rest of my life to get my lips injected again.I highly recommend him because he knows what he is doing and the results are magnificent.My lips look  exactly the way I wanted and they never became purple or sore after the intervention.I am a 28 year old woman that got her lips done and they look extremely natural!Thank you dr.Stanescu!See you in April!

I just had a tooth capped in an hour and 30 minutes instead of 3 – 4 weeks! What remarkable technology was used. It also fits better, right from the get go, rather than needing a year for the gums to fill in around the base. I experienced NO PAIN and was back at work within 30 minutes of the procedure. I’m just so impressed with the skill and professionalism that was applied.

Dr John Stanescu is a caring, gentle and affordable dentist. Years ago I had some infections in a Bridge that was done by a previous dentist so had a lot of painful and expensive procedures until I started going to Dr. Stanescu. We discussed all options and I decided on removing all the old bridge work and putting in implants which was the best thing I ever done. It has changed my life for the better and they look beautiful. I feel so much more confident now when I smile. I’m so happy.

My review of Dr. John G. Stanescu Dr. John G. Stanescu is a brilliant and inspired dentist, and my recent visit with a troublesome problem crown was—if you can believe this of more than an hour in the chair!—actually a real delight. What do I mean? (a) he’s such fun to talk to while he works; (b) he explains everything including new advances in the field as he works, so clearly but not talking down to you; and (c) he inspires such confidence because of both his sure hand with technical dentistry and his evident up-to-the minute interest in everything new in the field. A real artist in a dentist’s coat! Five Stars!! Anthony O’Brien New York City February 4, 2020
