I had noticed that my teeth had started to shift after having braces many years ago and brought up my concern during my check up at PDA last summer and I’m so glad that I did! Dr. Ritholtz and his team developed a plan for me with Invisalign that got me the straight smile I hadn’t seen in years (and even a few weeks ahead of schedule)!  Highly recommend anyone looking into Invisalign to see Dr. Ritholtz at PDA!

I recommend this dentist to EVERYONE. I’ve never had to wait more than 10 minutes, and my most recent appointment during COVID felt very safe. My hygienist was named Gus and he was the absolute best – he explained every part of the COVID-adjusted cleaning in detail to make sure I was comfortable. During the cleaning, he was so friendly, efficient, and clear about every part of the process. I have never felt any pressure to buy expensive products or procedures, which I really appreciate. Cannot recommend this whole practice highly enough!!

I came to Premier Dental for Invisalign after having a bad experience at my first dentist and couldn’t have been happier with Dr. Ritholtz and everyone at the office. The entire experience was quick, easy, and painless, and I’ve been recommending it to everyone that’s thinking about Invisalign. I’ve even decided to switch to make this my regular dentist after my positive experience.

Yes, I actually enjoy and look forward to dentist appointments at Premier Dental and no, they aren’t holding a gun to my head right now as I type. Jokes aside, I’ve been coming here for general cleanings since 2014 and I have to say that the team here is amazing – especially Natasha and Menna – they’re so nice and thorough I almost get sad when the visit is over. This year I decided to get Invisalign and my experience with Dr. Galler and Dr. Ritholtz has been phenomenal. They closed up my gap in no time and were very professional, friendly and flexible (I lost a few trays and they didn’t lecture and try to make me feel bad) throughout the entire process. I’ll continue to come to Premier for all of my dentistry needs as long as I live in NYC. Thanks Premier Dental team you guys are the best!

My experience with Dr. Ritholtz has been great. All the staff in the office has been a pleasure to work with. Their flexibility in making appointments is great and getting replacement invisalign trays sent directly to me during times of quarantine was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this dentist for regular cleanings and invisalign treatment.

Marissa F. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing. Finding a new dentist can be a hassle, but I am so glad I found this place. The team at the front desk are lovely with communication and ensuring everything with your insurance works out and is transparent. The hygienists and dentist are top-notch. I’m very happy to call  PDADental my dentist!!

Kathy W. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Go here regularly for dental check ups and cleanings. The staff is always courteous and works with you for scheduling and conflicts. I also like their electronic appointment reminders. I also recently started and finished my Invisalign treatment here.Dr. Ritholtz has been excellent and patient throughout, explaining each step, and working with me to correct my bite and straighten my teeth. Happy with the results.

* Clean, state-of-the-art office, and great location. * Super friendly staff and receptionists. * Unbeatable pricing and great payment plan options. * Patiently answered my many questions! * Incredibly quick results! I am so happy with my Invisalign experience at PDA with Dr. Ritholtz. I highly recommend PDA for anyone that is looking to do Invisalign and wants to work with a knowledgeable and pleasant Dr. and team. Thank you!

Premier Dental (PDA) is fabulous. They are professionals and still like family. Most important everyone is extremely knowledgeable about the mouth and teeth and are up to date with all the latest on the care of teeth. Their main concern is the right care and about the patient and not money. I have been going to Premier Dental for 30 years and like a good bottle of wine they just keep getting better.

Jamari W. from Chelsea, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


As soon as I walked  into this office I knew this would be one of the  best dentist offices in  NYC. Delighted that my presumption was confirmed.  I will  be getting crown work done as well as future work  that may prove to be pretty extensive. Setting up an appointment was easy and simple due to Lonnie, the desk receptionist being professional, efficient, and having a  great welcoming attitude. Followed by a clear explanation of the current state of my teeth that were x-rayed and future goals. The appointed concluded with one of best best cleanings that I have EVER received by Sheri, the dental Hygienist, who should get an Oscar award for being OUTSTANDING at her job. She was incredibly clear, funny, knowledgeable, and informed me on cleaning techniques I never even thought about. Throughout the years life got in the way and I neglected my teeth more often than I would ever want to. I’ve literally dreamed of having a great smile and oral hygiene. I think I’ve found the perfect practice to make my dream a reality!

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


I’ve been a biyearly patient for the past 7 or so years and I am so happy with my latest visit today. But first I want to express how PDA really is unlike every other doctor’s office I’ve been to (in the best ways possible) and these are the reasons why: 1) Extremely efficient. PDA is like a well-oiled machine.. whenever I visit, there are always a few patients in the waiting room, yet appointments are always timely (never wait more than 5 minutes after your appointment time). 2) Excellent bedside manners, particularly noticeable at the front desk (friendly receptionists.. it really is groundbreaking!) – when booking appointments, checking in, and checking out. Such a breath of fresh air. 3) The most noteworthy difference is that while at most places there is a huge dissonance between the billing department and the doctors, the doctors here are knowledgeable of or actually try to HELP you figure out your costs depending on your insurance. How many times have we heard doctors unhelpfully drone out, “It depends on your insurance, check yourself.” Most docs couldn’t care less whether they are getting $ from the patient or insurance. They just want to bill whoever for as much as possible. Thus explains my being absolutely floored today when Dr. Ritholtz pulled up my insurance information right then and there on the computer and confirmed how much my out-of-pocket would be for Invisalign. And then later upon check-out, Christine was on the phone with my insurance, ensuring that the cost would be reimbursed so that I received the molds in a timely manner. Well-oiled machine, I say! 4) Marie! She’s has been my hygienist for the past few visits and by far has been my favorite. She’s so friendly and most importantly, her cleanings are efficient yet effective. I usually hate the dentist because the vibrating water pic of death just scares the bejesus out of me and creates a bloodbath in my mouth, but Marie is SO gentle! I really don’t mind my visits anymore – I hope she stays here forever (jk) because she’s an absolute gem!

The team at Premier Dental is great! I’ve been a patient for over a year, with Invisalign and general cleaning procedures done here. The main receptionist always checks me in before I’ve even come up to her desk, the hygienists (Gus & Meena?) have been professional and not too abrasive on my pearly whites. Dr. Ritzhold is always making sure that I’m happy with my invisalign progress. The wait times are very reasonable, as well!

Elizabeth C. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ritholtz was the best! I just finished my Invisalign procedure and can honestly say I’d highly recommend him to anyone who asks. He’s super attentive and makes you feel comfortable at all times. He takes the time out to explain every step of the process  and never makes you feel rushed. Go to him!!

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


I get my teeth cleaned here and also just finished my Invisalign treatment. Everyone here is wonderful. I am very fearful about the dentist and they are all so sweet and gentle and helpful and patient; they make going to the dentist much less scary! Everyone who works at the front desk is also super nice and helpful. My Invisalign experience here was also great. Dr. Ritholtz is terrific and thorough, and my teeth look great. I fully recommend PDA, and that’s a big deal because I hate the dentist 🙂

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


I have been going to this practice for over 15 years.  Originally I was seen by Dr Dave Ritholtz, but more recently I completed a course of Invisalign with his son Dr Steven Ritholtz.  I am thrilled with my Invisalign results, but beyond that I cannot say enough good things about this practice.  Not only do they take excellent care of all of my dental needs, but it is such a well-run practice. All of the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.  Loni at the front desk runs a super tight ship.  Appointments are ALWAYS on time and any communications regarding billing and scheduling are always timely and transparent.  Oh, and it is super convenient with pretty much every train located within 2 blocks.  If you are looking for a dentist, go to PDA, you will not be disappointed!

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


I recently finished my Invisalign procedure at Premier! It was a shorter process than I thought. I shopped around NYC to get quotes of varying cost and time and chose Premier Dr. Galler and Dr. Ritholtz because the price was right but better, the timing was perfect! I thought there was a lot of attention and care throughout the process! Every question was answered!

Being a Englishman, you know of the American smile. The gleaming beacon of white that is often associated with Hollywood. We tend to be known for more our crocked teeth with maybe a dash of yellow pigment. Maybe that was just me, I needed to change up my game, get over my fear of dentists and gain that American smile. My wife booked in an appointment for herself at Premier and came back raving about its services. The staff, her dentist, the full 9 yards. People don’t often rave about dentists so thought maybe these are the guys. I booked myself in and 5 days later found myself in a place I feared the most, but this time it was different. The staff had already made me feel comfortable and after some initial paper work I was about to met my dentist. A Gus Mantuano was the man for the job. Feeling out of my comfort zone I was a little standoff ish but he broke down that barred with his welcoming personality. He then proceeded to talk about each step of what he wanted to achieve today and always gave time and space for questions. After X-rays and then an extremely thorough clean (I needed it) he again talked me through what I needed to do to up my oral hygiene. It was never patronizing, it was informal but he also genuinely cared. Gus Mantuano wants you to have the best teeth possible, he is not looking at you as just another patient, each person who visits him I truly believe are treated in the same personal one on one way that works for them. I have since been back for further work and have already scheduled check up appointments going into 2018. I honestly don’t think I would ever find myself writing a review about a dentist but I could not recommend this practice and Gus more highly, American Smile and all!

I’ve been coming to PDA for years for cleanings and finally decided to get Invisalign! I was referred to Dr. Ritholtz and I couldn’t be happier with the experience! Not only was he always on time for my appointments, he is super friendly, funny and personable. I never felt rushed and he always took the time to answer my questions or return calls. I had an amazing result and all my friends now have teeth envy because I cannot stop smiling! I highly recommend him! The office staff is very kind as well and made the scheduling/billing process simple and easy. FIVE STAR dental office all around!!!

The office is in a great location, Lonni (probably misspelled) Is wonderful !! Always and I do mean ALWAYS pleasant to me on the phone and in person…….and she laughs at my jokes, lol Anyway, I am really impressed with the oral surgeon on my most recent visit. Very professional and patient. Thanks Premier Dental!

Vanessa J. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ritholtz is amazing! Came here for my Invisalign treatment as I had excessive crowding and an overbite. I started the treatment in May and finished with my final trays today. Just received my retainers and I couldn’t be more than Happy. Dr. Ritholtz was very attentive and very informative. This was a very smooth and seamless process and I’m  glad I did it.

Trifena D. from Jamaica, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient since 2000 and would never go anywhere else. I have had the father as my dentist now I have the son. PDA is not about the money but about giving the best care and advise to their patients. My hygienist Sherry is the best, Dr.Nair is the best Periodontist ever. I did my implants there with Dr Mendel my root canal you name it, anything to do with my dental care they take care of me. Great practice. Thanks Dr. David Ritholtz for having such a wonderful practice and thanks for Steven your son who is doing just as great in your foot steps! Sincerely. Mrs. Woods

Xtina S. from Crown Heights, NY (Source: Yelp)


I recommend this place to anyone needing dental work of any kind. Both the “normal” dental care side and the periodontal advanced care side are awesome, they provide emailed reminders of appointments, they take most major insurances, and the front desk folk are cheerful and friendly. They also do their level best to minimise pain and discomfort, given the givens. Very thorough, would recommend forever.

John V. from Queens, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Just completed my Invisalign treatment, and I’m extremely satisfied with Dr. Ritholtz and everyone at Premier. I had been using them for cleanings before as well, and have always been treated nicely. Bonus points… I’ve never waited outside for more than ten minutes for an appointment. It’s been easy to plan my day around visits. Nothing to do with the actual treatment, but I appreciate how much they respect my time.

I have a bit of a phobia surrounding dentists and have been putting off scheduling an appointment for a while. This was my first visit to PDADental and it was incredible! Everyone from the front office staff on made me feel welcome and taken care of. In particular, Gus, the hygienist, was AMAZING. He took the time to hear my concerns, address any pressing dental issues, and make the whole experience painless and stress free. I would highly recommend Gus and this practice.

Lydia B. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


My teeth are finally straight and it took half the amount of time other orthodontists told me it would take! Dr. Ritholtz was so helpful and was able to explain everything incredibly clearly. I was also happy to hear the Invisalign treatment came with a free teeth whitening. I’ll be using PDA for my future cleanings now just to keep seeing the kind staff and  keep my teeth looking the way they are now. Thank you PDA!

Jared K. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


This is by far the best dentist I have found downtown….I’ve been living in the neighborhood for years so I’ve had my fair share of idiot dentists and it’s very refreshing to have found a practice I trust. The office is beautiful and I don’t have a single complaint about the quality of care I’ve received. The best part about this practice is that I couldn’t tell you my doctors name and it doesn’t even matter because they aren’t the one who make the practice so amazing. It’s the front desk staff who are extremely knowledgeable, the hygienist and JUDY who handles billing. I had the most ass backward insurance issue and she was fully able to take care of it for me!! She went above and beyond and if it wasn’t for her I would be on to my next practice and they would have lost a patient. You won’t be disappointed with this office!

Lindsey W. from San Fernando Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Loved going to this dental group. Everyone was so kind from the front desk staff, to the dental hygienists and the dentists as well. Booking appointments was easy as well as rescheduling them given my crazy, unstable schedule as a freelancer. Several appointments were bundled into one and at one point I even had a tooth pulled the same day I came in for a diagnosis. Highly recommend! I’ve been to many dental offices in NYC and not all of them are good. So know that I don’t give this review lightly.

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


Dr. Ritholtz was incredible with fixing my smile. I had orthodontist work as a teenager, but my teeth moved drastically including my overbite shifting. Dr. Ritholtz and his team were very attentive to my wants and needs. The Invisalign corrected my overbite and fixed the bottom row of my teeth, in a total of 10 months. Every visit to the offices were delightful, PDA has very friendly staff and are punctual with appointment times. Highly recommend.

I went to the office this morning to drop a check for my husband’s upcoming dental procedure. I figured while I’m there I should make an appointment for myself since I have not seen a dentist in years and to my surprise the lovely receptionist advised she had a cancellation and they would see me right now! From the ladies up front to the XRay tech, Sheri the hygienist and the dentist whose name escapes me at the moment, I had a great experience! My dental future looks bright as I look forward to working with this team! If you ignore your teeth they will go away…#callmesmiley

Premier is fantastic. My checkups are always quick and easy. Had some tooth sensitivity and got an appointment for the next day. Got to my appointment right on time and was seated within 2 minutes. Hygienists and Doctors are awesome, friendly, and turns out my sensitivity was something that just needed a little more brushing attention. No unnecessary filling, doc gave it to me straight up! Thank you!

Kevin H. from New Brunswick, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Got my invasalign done here. Dr. Ritholtz and his team treated my teeth in less time than expected. I am extremely happy with the results and the team here. Getting appointments has never been an issue and I was always able to work around my work schedule very well. Looking forward to coming back for my next cleaning.

I’ve been coming to Premier Dental Associates for 7 years while my father has been using them for his dental work for over 10 years. Dr. David Ritholtz and now his son Steven as well as the rest of the staff have done a great job taking care of any issues I’ve had with my teeth whether it was pain or cavities or squeezing me in for a last minute emergency which has happened on several occasions. While I usually see Dr. Ritholtz, I’ve also had great experiences  dealing with several of the other doctors on those rare emergency occasions when they haven’t been available so no matter who you end up seeing, you should feel very comfortable that you will be in great hands.

The office was nice and clean. Staff was very attentive and friendly. The gentleman who cleaned my teeth was very informative, had a light but thorough hand (i.e. no torture!) and warned me whenever he thought he may be getting to a sensitive area on my gums. Thank you! The dentist was also very informative. He took the time to explain several things to me and did not try to pressure me into any excesses dental work. The x-Ray technicians and front desk staff were very friendly as well! I had to switch to this new practice after my long time dentist stopped taking my insurance and I was skeptical but left very pleased. I scheduled an appt there for my husband as well.

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


I’ve been told since high school that I should try Invisalign but I didn’t do it because of the cost and I wasn’t comfortable with how aggressive my pediatric dentist was pushing the product.  But here, Dr. Ritholtz and the Premier Dental staff were encouraging and made it very accessible. They offer flexible payment plans and the receptionist team is always a delight during every visit.  Dr. Ritholtz is one of the few dentist that I have encountered who actually spent an adequate amount of time explaining the Invisalign process and gave great advice and tips along the way that led to an amazing outcome.  You can tell that he takes great pride in his work and the results.  I finished my case two months earlier than forecasted.  Sincerely grateful to this dental team overall and very satisfied with my results.
