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

Maria A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing doctor and staff. She is caring and thorough. Her office is spotless and her staff is also very knowledgeable and caring. My oldest son has a perfect smile now under her care. We were so happy with the results that my youngest son and I also decided to begin our treatment. He is almost done and I still have a little longer to go. I am very happy with the progress of my treatment and most of all, I am not afraid to smile anymore..

I would highly recommend Dr. Olga Bukholts, I had no bite tooth she came up with a solution to move my back tooth over enough to be able to place a bridge so I would now have a bite tooth. Dr.Olga was so patient with me cause I was not a fan of dentist she made me feel so comfortable & determined to continue going back & continue with her plan with straighten my teeth. The staff are so polite & helpful, Paula has solved insurance issues of mine & has always made appointments to fit my needs. I was treated over a year & so happy with my results 🙂

My niece is visiting us from Chicago and she had some kind of wire failure with her braces. The wire from her braces was somehow poking into her cheek and she was miserable and could not eat. We were worried it could turn possibly turn into an infection. We realized we needed to quickly find an Orthodontist in our neighborhood who could take her on a moment’s notice even though she was not a regular patient. We surfed the Internet and found a bunch of orthodontists on the Upper West Side but nobody would take see her because she was not under their care. We called a friend who has a teen with braces and heard she was seeing Dr. Bukholts. We called the office and we were told that the orthodontist was gone for the day (it was after 6pm on a Friday) but the office manage said she would phone her and call us back shortly. A few minutes later we were told to bring my nice to the office and Dr. Bukholts walked in at the same time. We had the problem looked at, fixed and done, all in less than 15 minutes. All of Dr. Bukholts staff was also very sweet and kind and the office is immaculate. I could not be more pleased with the level of service and professionalism, and quality of results. I would wholeheartedly recommend Perfect Smiles Orthodontics to anyone.

I am very happy with my treatment from Dr. Buckholts. She is very nice, and the office is super clean and modern. She fixed my issue quickly and seamlessly – I would recommend to anyone! The only other ancillary comment would be to discuss your insurance and payment options with Dr. Buckholts prior to any procedure so you are both on the same page 🙂

A wonderful location with amazing employees who go out of there way to make you feel welcome, comfortable and fulfill all your needs! Thank you so much Paula for all your help during the process of my treatment. She is your go to person who will address all your concerns and inquiries. We can’t forget Michele and David who bring on the smiles every time and coordinate all your appointments to fit your schedule! Finally, thank you a million times Doctor Olga! I am so happy to have found a Doctor who makes you feel at ease and is determined to perfect your smile. Most importantly, Doctor Olga wants you to be happy with your end result- straight teeth and a beautiful smile!

I was looking for a great dentist and was referred by a previous patient. My experience was great. I have not see the dentist in a couple years and the process went smoothly, by the staff and the knowledge of the doctor. I was skeptical of the cost because I know that dentists are very expensive, but my insurance covered most and that was explained thoroughly. I will recommend this office to anyone needing full dental care.

Natia G. from Maspeth, NY (Source: Yelp)


I LOVED Dr. Bukholts for fixing the mistakes of my previous orthodontist. I always leave the office a bit speechless, because Dr. Bukholts, hands-down is the best dental professional I’ve ever dealt with (and I’ve dealt with a few.. trust me). She is highly skilled, professional, affordable, and takes a genuine interest in patients. And of course professionally speaking she does an excellent job. The quality of work is excellent and my teeth look obsoletely amazing! The office is very modern, and clean and the receptionist is the nicest, and most cheerful person I have ever met (like the MOST) always giving me her full attention. Bottom line, the level of professionalism is outstanding and the rest of the office makes you feel very welcomed. My bad case of an overbite is now fixed and I would definitely recommend Dr. Bukholts. Ignore the previous bad reviews because they are absolutely false. You will definitely get your money’s worth in a professional, friendly and relaxed environment

Researched many orthodontists for Invisalign and couldn’t be happier with my experience with Dr. Olga Bukholts. Results were ideal, entire staff is helpful and attentive, and my follow up appointments have been a breeze. Entire experience from consultation to completion was great. Highly recommend this office.

My daughter is 7 years old and needed both an expander and braces – not only is the doctor knowledgeable she is also attentive, patient and is wonderful with my daughter. Dare I even say that the staff are fun! They make my daughter at ease by interacting with her before the Doctor comes in. It has been literally a painless 9 months and today she is finished! Her smile is gorgeous! ALSO, my daughters teeth were bumped by another kid’s hard head and a bracket fell off – it was a Sunday afternoon and I called the office and left a message – the doctor herself literally called me back in 5 minutes – problem averted and we were able to come in first thing to fix it. LASTLY, I have NEVER and I repeat NEVER waited to see the doctor more than 2 minutes!

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


I am happy to give Dr. Buckholts and her team 5 stars. I’ve been a patient at Perfect Smiles for just about one year now, and my experience has been an entirely positive one. Needing orthodontic treatment as a result of a bad decision from a previous dental provider, I was hesitant to trust just anyone, but Dr. Buckholts did an amazing job. Not only is her work completely professional but she is so patient and VERY accommodating. Just the other day I stopped in (I did not have an appointment, but was a block away), and Dr. Buckholts was able to squeeze me for a quick adjustment. Also, her receptionist, Lana, is so warm and friendly. If you are not able to pay the entire amount for your treatment Dr. Buckholts is more than happy to set you up on a payment plan (which is what I opted to do). I expect to get my braces off next week and could not be happier. I would recommend Dr. Buckholts to anyone!

Maria L. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Bukholts was so very patient and kind with my 9 year old son. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great Orthodontist.  She was able to convince him to calm down long enough to take a full impression as well as x-rays.  We were referred to her by our local dentist, because my son has a overbite and our Dentist thought he needed to get braces right away.  Dr Olga told us to wait until all his baby teeth fall off and all new teeth grow in, thus saving him added year on unnecessary pain and visits to the Ortho.  I cant tell you how honest and refreshing it was to hear that, and I have told that story to quite a few parents at my sons school, and thus recommended her for when the kids need treatment. We will definitely be going back for treatment and anyone else in the family that may need her services.  Also if you have any waiting time, which we did not, you and your kids will love all the video games, guitar hero they have in waiting area.

Dr Bukholtz is hands down, the best orthodontist in the city. She is so responsive to any problem that comes up and gets back to you IMMEDIATELY. I’ve never met a doctor so responsive to their patients’ needs. My daughter’s smile is now gorgeous and definitely fits the “Perfect Smiles” description!

Ethan K. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


After reading a negative review left by Yvette C., I feel compelled to respond that we had gone to several orthodontists for the initial consultation and they all have been charging us consultation fees. I don’t think it’s odd to pay for professional consultation.The reason we ended up going to Dr. Bukholts was her display of great professional confidence in fixing our son’s teeth, something that other orthodontist could not promise without additional surgery. After dealing with Dr. Olga for some time it became evident how deeply she cares about her patients and gives them the best care possible. For the amount of effort that she puts in, I can honestly say that her fees are very reasonable with an affordable payment plan. Without any hesitation I highly recommend Dr. Bukholts. After 2 long years my 13-year-old son has finally taken off his braces with a beautiful new “Perfect” smile. Thank you Dr. Olga for the job well done!

Ava P. from Prince, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had an excellent experience at Perfect Smiles Orthodontics! Dr. Bukholts stays aware of the latest technology therefore she uses the best products available for your treatment. Her office treats both adults and children of all ages. Dr. Bukholts and her staff make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. Parents are always welcome to stay with their children during their visits and are kept informed of the progress they are making. The staff is very efficient, well trained, attentive, and friendly. Anytime I had concerns or questions, time was taken to address them. I love my perfect smile!!

Anna L. from Forest Hills, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Bukholts since the summer of ’09. I never had braces, did not really want them, but yet wanted a much nicer smile. A friend referred me to Perfect Smiles Orthodontics. I am extremely happy to report that from beginning to end this has been the most pleasant, painless, and effective dental experience I have ever had. I had Invisalign treatment. I never thought it would be that quick and that non-intrusive into my lifestyle. Dr. Bukholts explained every step of the process to me and made me feel very comfortable. Today I am smiling wide at any opportunity and very much whish the same for you!

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


I had a great experience with Invisalign here! Love that they were available for touch ups or to fix minor issues ASAP. After a bad experience with childhood braces from a different ortho, Dr. Bukholts got my teeth and bite where I wanted them and was super professional and helpful. Thank you!!

Natalia K. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I cannot recommend Dr. Bukholts higher! I showed up practically in tears after seeing my oldest daughter’s x Rays and she has immediately made me feel better by explaining the situation and the steps that need to be taken in a very calm, candid, and professional way. Now she treats all four of my children and the improvements are evident and amazing! Even the kids themselves can see that their braces are working. Thru also enjoy their appointments – Dr. Bukholts has the best bedside manner! I have been sending to her all my friends children – and quite a few adults, too! She is simply the best :))

My daughter came here to have her teeth whitened a year ago and we were very happy with the service. I decided to try it and had it done this week. I am extremely happy with my newly whiter teeth! Dr Olga is lovely and her staff was very competent. But really Dr. Olga attended to me most of the time and checked back in on me every 10 minutes. I really appreciated that. I would highly recommend this office.

Updated: After having my braces removed for several years, I had made an appointment to have a mold done for a replacement retainer. Dr. Bukholts and her staff were courteous and treated me well. The Reception desk listened to my concerns. The assistant that had taken my mold took great care of me as well, looking forward to my new retainer. I included two photos of my retainers. The left photo shows the updated retainer that feels a lot better than the previous version (on the right). The retainer feels more natural and comfortable. Glad I made this appointment!

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


Dr. Olga Bukholts  is the most thorough, warm, and intuitive orthodontist we could have found for our now 10-year-old daughter. She explains clearly in understandable terms the issues and how we as a “team” are going to implement the various stages of fixing our daughter’s bite and straighten her teeth. From booking appointments, to our consult at each stage, to the actual “no tears” fixing of braces, expanders, rubber bands etc., to the follow up after each appointment — no one could possibly be better! As a mother who had a horrible experience with braces when I was a teenager, I can really appreciate Dr. Bukholt’s TLC with my daughter. The offices are state of the art by the way! They use the most advanced approach to orthodontics. Their goal is to get the kids in and out of braces as quickly and with as little discomfort as possible.  Thanks Dr. Bukholts!

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


My experience at Perfect Smiles has only been great. They are extremely accommodating with my scheduling, their results are visibly impressive, and their entire staff is very friendly. I typically go on Friday afternoon and even though it’s the end of the week, everyone is happy to greet me. My smile looks fantastic! I would definitely recommend this place!! Plus it’s located in a good, safe building on the Upper West Side and it’s conveniently right off the 1,2, and 3 lines.

Reggie B. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


God is in the Details! Unfortunately, this is not my first time around the block as far as braces are concerned. I have had braces for THREE YEARS as a teenager, and oh sure my orthodontist told me to wear a retainer but that did not stop me from loosing it and never replacing it. Did you wear yours? So, alas, my teeth were not straight (but I want them to be) and my dentist referred me to Dr. Bukholts. I am so grateful that he did. The office is absolutely stunning; I mean I’ve never been to a nicer place. I recognize that it is nice that they have L’Occitane soap in the bathroom, but it is not why I am giving them a five star rating. It is also very nice that they are giving cool little lip balms with their logo on them, but this is not why I am giving them a five star rating. I think it is pretty cool that they have a fancy game system in the waiting room but I think it is even cooler that you are never made to wait long enough to play it. The reason why a doctor deserves a five star rating is that any time day, evening, or weekend I have called, someone either answered or called me back right away; any time I have asked for a special appointment time (earlier or later then their usual hours) they gave it to me. If I wrote her an email, I got an answer within minutes. Everything she has ever told me was the absolute truth. She set timeframe and expectations for my treatment and so far is delivering. After I have canceled an appointment because I had a flue, her receptionist called me by the end of that week to ask me how I was feeling. Does your doctor do that for you? If you want to be treated like VIP, and get the best treatment in the most beautiful place then definitely go to Perfect Smiles. Of course there are other options out there, but for you, my fellow Yelpers, this is definitely the only right one!

Successfully completed my invisalign treatment with Dr. Bukholts last month, needless to say that I am very happy with the results. I thought I would never have a smile with straight aligned teeth until I started my treatment at Perfect Smiles Orthodontics. The results are absolutely amazing and the compliments are flowing. She gave me the perfect smile!!!! I would recommend her office to anyone considering Invisalign. Her practice is conveniently located, nice and clean. The staff is professional, efficient and accommodating.

Dr. Bukholtz is a brilliant and amazing orthodontist who takes great care of her patients. Her easy style and bedside manner put my daughter at ease immediately. She explains everything to the patient and the patient’s family so that everyone understands the course of treatment and what to expect. She is attentive to the needs of her patients and her work is flawless. We are lucky to have her as our doctor.

J G. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


My 13 year old son and I have been a long time patients of Dr. Olga Bukholts and love her personalized service. She is a doctor who you learn to completely trust as a patient. She listens to your concerns and explains in great details what can/should be done to achieve the desired result. Having been previously treated by several Manhattan orthodontists I was immediately impressed by the atmosphere, service and competitive prices offered by Perfect Smiles Orthodontics. Definitely 5 stars and a strong recommendation for those looking for an orthodontist who provides an excellent service and value for money!!!

E W. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been to perfect smiles Orthodontics several times this year. I will say that my experience has been nothing short of great every time. To start, Dr. Buckholts has always made time to see me, even if my appointment was last minute. She is extremely professional and thorough with her work and has created a warm and comfortable environment in her office. I would recommend Perfect Smiles to anyone interested in great quality and service.

Dana R. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Dr. Bukholts. She did a wonderful job on my 12-year-old daughter’s teeth, which now look amazing. Our experience was entirely positive. Dr. Bukholts was extremely accommodating and professional; it was easy to schedule appointments, including when we had the occasional emergency like a broken wire. Her price was better than the other orthodontists in the area that I visited, and she didn’t charge any consultation fee. She was also very accommodating with the payment schedule. I will use her for my other child’s teeth and would recommend her to anyone.

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


My experience at Perfect Smiles Orthodontics has been very positive. At the age of 36 I decided that I wanted to get braces and correct my teeth. I did my research and I was impressed with Dr. Bukholts background. I found her to be very professional and attentive. She listens to her patients and she has flexible office hours. Two years later, I now have the smile I wish I had my whole life. Its never to late to improve your smile and confidence. My twin sons are now patients of Dr. Bukholts. They are excited by the changes they see each month. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent Orthodontist in NYC!

I’ve been to several Orthodontic consultations recently, as I’m searching for the best Orthodontist to handle my case. Dr. Bukholts & her team have by far been the BEST! From the moment I entered the office, I felt welcomed. The environment was warm and friendly, which made me feel very comfortable. The front desk coordinator was awesome, Joy the dental assistance made me laugh, and has great energy. Dr. Bukholts was very professional, detailed, and thorough in explaining my treatment options. She reassured me that my case could be handled, which put me at ease. I feel like the information provided was honest, and most importantly, I felt valued as a person. She spent a good amount of time with me, and I truly appreciate that. Also, Paula was absolutely great! Very professional and friendly, took her time with explaining additional options. Thank you Paula for all your kind words. Overall, I had a GREAT first experience with Perfect Smiles Orthodontics and I’m so excited to start my treatment plan! Thank you all!

Dr. Bukholts and her team were super kind, welcoming, and informative when I went into for my Invisalign screening. And in light of covid, they are taking every measure possible to ensure a safe and sanitary office for themselves and their patients. I look forward to starting my treatment in a couple of weeks. Thanks very much for the visit!

Nana G. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I am a new patient of Dr. Bukholts, recommend to the Perfect Smiles by a co-worker. I have never been this satisfied with the dental service ever before. Considering I wore braces two years ago for a total of THREE and a HALF years, my teeth did not meet the made promises of my prior orthodontist and were far from perfectly straight. Upon my first appointment I was exposed to several options of ways to straighten my teeth in a short period of time. Being in my twenties now and I am assured that this is the last time I will ever be needing any type of orthodontist work done to my teeth. I have only worn my braces for 3 weeks and the results are absolutely breath-taking. It truly makes a huge difference, the doctor definitely knows what she is doing and does it very well! The atmosphere in the office is pleasant and relaxing. The place is very clean, sterol, and well decorated. My doctor answered my every question in a short response time and I honestly could not be happier with the service and the quality of work I have been receiving so far. No complaints what so ever!

Casey F. from Delray Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


I recently went to Dr. Bukholts to get my teeth whitened for my upcoming wedding. Everything in her office was state-of-the art and I was able to pick from a wide variety of DVDs to entertain me while I relaxed in the chair and got the treatment. The time flew by and I was comfortable and relaxed the entire treatment. And most importantly, I was really impressed with the results. I had several people comment on how white my teeth were following the treatment. I would definitely recommend her and I plan to go back if I ever need any other treatments.

Lisa C. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Great to get back to Perfect Smiles today! We had a bit of an interruption due to coronavirus. We felt very safe in the office as every precaution was taken. We were glad to get back on track and see their friendly faces. They are always on time and efficient, so helpful and personable. I have highly recommended Dr Bukholts and her staff to several of my friends already!

Kristen Cooke (Source: Google)


I highly suggest Dr Bukholts and her entire team. Overall, fantastic experience and my teeth are just gorgeous. I was in treatment for about a year and could not be happier with the results. What I really enjoyed is from my first visit all the way until my last visit they exceeded my expectations every time.

Erika B. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I did a lot of research on a few places and decided to settle on getting my Invisalign here for four reasons: (1) Positive reputation, (2) Experience, credentials, and knowledge of the doctor, (3) Consultation – The consultation was a great process…very easy on-boarding and they did not try to shove a contract down your throat.. Office is clean and super high-tech. The entire staff from reception to billing are fast, efficient, and very friendly. and the orthodontist is warm and knows her stuff; and (4) Best price in town. 5 1/2 months later I have perfectly straight teeth. Amazing.
