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

Elsa M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Veligdan is wonderful! The level of care, attention, and detail I’ve received from him far exceeds that of any other dentist I’ve seen. He always takes as much time as needed to do a thorough exam and cleaning. He explains what he is doing, why I have the issues I do, and gives me detailed advice on how I can best care for my teeth to prevent further issues. I highly recommend him. His assistants are great too.

Knowledgeable , compassionate , best for the patients who postponed the visits to the dentist because of bed experience with other doctors. Best doing anesthesia when teeth nerves are located in not standard places. Uses the most conservative /holistic approach for the treatment to avoid root canal / tooth extraction

Diana K. from Mount Laurel, NJ (Source: Yelp)


A friend referred me to Dr. Veligdan many months ago. After some hesitancy due to having very bad experiences with previous dentists. I ended up going and boy was I glad that I went. Dr. Veligdan and his front office staff were absolutely professional and accommodating. I have to say on the technical aspect of Dr. Veligdan took absolute care of me with the most minimal discomfort. I was in need of four root canal’s and a new crown. And although the thought of going through such a long procedure was horrifying Dr. Veligdan made it seem like I walk in the park. Once again I’m glad to have found such a caring ,devoted and professional dentist. I would without hesitation refer anybody to seek out Dr. V. Thank you Dr. Veligdan

Love Dr. Veligdan and his staff. Dr V is always incredibly patient and knowledgeable. He not only takes care of your teeth but also takes the time to teach you on how to take better care of your gums and teeth at home. He even called me after a procedure to ensure all was well. Who does that in this day and age?!? Well, Dr. Veligdan still does :). The staff is just amazing, always professional and super helpful dealing with all the insurance claims. Just an A+++ of service. Thank you!

Margot P. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


While I only saw Dr. Veligdan for a consultation, he was extremely thorough in explaining my situation, which is somewhat complicated. He referred me to a specialist he uses himself, although there was no pressure to use his recommendation. I think Dr. Veligdan would make a great dentist for my general dental needs.

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


The days of Dentist fear a gone. In the past all you had to do was say the word “Dentist”. Arrrhhh, fear would fill me and you could watch me; in a flash, run so fast I could do a 10km run in under 35 min. Those days are long gone. Dr Robert Veligdan is amazing. He gently encourages, never judges. When Dr Veligdan first met me I was in extreme pain and had not set foot near a dentist, little-lone a dentist office in over 15 years. Dr Veligdan’s calming words, kind smile, and knowledge filled eyes won me over. Today I have a smile I am proud to share. A friend suggested Dr Veligdan to me, and it has been one of the best recommendations I have ever received. Don’t let fear hold you back, seek out Dr Veligdan today.

I was referred to Dr. V by a dear friend. He carefully examined my teeth and gums, did a great cleaning, and explained treatment possibilities. I felt very well cared for by him and his assistant, and am grateful to find a knowledgeable, kind, and reliable dentist. Highly recommended!

Dr Veligdan is not only the best dentist I know, he has also become an amazing friend. I completely trust him with the care of my teeth and dental health which is important to my overall health. He has a gentle approach and instills confidence through education. I am always learning from him and I am convinced that he is the best dentist I could have to help me maintain my dental health. He also takes great care to check up on me with a personal phone call after each visit. I have found him to be 100% consistent in his kind approach and genuine bedside manner which is rare in the medicine. His staff is also professional, caring and very helpful with scheduling and insurance billing. I wholeheartedly endorse Dr. Veligdan and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

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


Dr Veligdan is not only the best dentist I know he is also one of my favorite people. I completely trust him with the care of my teeth and dental health which is so important. He has a gentle approach and instills confidence through concise and expert explanations of his processes. I am always learning from him and I am convinced through my positive experiences that he is the best dentist I could have to help me maintain my dental health. He also takes great care to check up on his patients with a personal phone call after each visit. I have found him to be 100% consistent in his kind approach and genuine bedside manner which is rare in the medicine. I wholeheartedly endorse Dr. Veligdan and his skill and have recommended him to my family and friends many times before and will continue to do so in the future.

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


Dr Veligdan is one of the most kind, compassionate doctors I’ve encountered. He clearly is passionate about his work and is devoted to sincerely helping his patients. In this day, I find that rare. He offered to work with my financial situation and realizes that insurance coverage is constricting to health. That means so much. Having just dealt with oversights regarding my father’s health, which caused premature death I am grateful to see Dr. Veligdan. He is incredibly thorough, explains issues you’re having, and though I only see him a handful of times yearly both he and Kathy (office manager) are wonderful and remember me every time. I find that to be exceptional. I also liked the dental hygienist, Alma. And lastly, Dr. Veligdan is very respectful. I don’t like chemicals, and though it would benefit me to use a rinse he suggested alternative solutions.

Dr. V and his dental assistant, Rashida, were absolutely lovely. I’ve been going to Dr. V for almost two years now and he’s one of my favorite medical/dental professionals to go to because he’s trustworthy and knows his stuff. I feel taken care of every time I go there. Bonnie, the receptionist, was a delight, too!

Shawn B. from Toms River, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I saw the dr for an emergency appointment. The dr was very kind in meeting with me and provided a very detailed examination. He was very honest with me about my situation and what it would take to resolve it. He has a very good bed side manner and explained things to me. His staff was amazing and they were very nice to me and made me feel comfortable. They just won a new patient.

Shruti N. from Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Veligdan was great. I went in with a lot of pain, he did a very thorough analysis and gave me the best possible option to save the tooth (other option was extraction). He was very helpful and checked on me even after to see how I was doing. Highly recommended, awesome staff. Everything in terms of cost/insurance was explained well, there are no surprises when you check out! Will definitely visit again.

Allyson T. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Veligdan has been my dentist for over 20 years, and I wish he had been the only dentist I had ever seen.  This man does extraordinary work, both structural and cosmetic.  My 14 year old,  6 front crowns still look better than any I’ve ever seen – even on celebrities.  Dr. Veligdan always takes whatever time necessary to do an exceptional job regardless of the situation …And whereas, I’m always happy to jump out of the dental chair, I’m always confident and relieved knowing that I went to the best.

Sana S (Source: Zocdoc)


I don’t think there can be a better dentist out there than Dr. Veligdan. First of all, I was very grateful about the thoroughness during the exam. I have had a lot of dental work done over the years and I always get very anxious before dental appointments but Dr. Veligdan was gentle and had a calm demeanor, which helped. He told me what I needed to prioritize and I feel confident that he will do great work. His assistant Rashida was truly wonderful as well! Glad I found him. 

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


By far the most professional, friendly experience I’ve had with dental care. I had to replace a root canal gone bad from a previous doctor, and Dr. Veligdan took care of everything with ease. Plus, he’s an amazing communicator so you understand what is happening and I always felt like he truly cared about my well being. Great staff, too! I recommend him to everyone.

First let me say that Dr. Veligdan take every precaution necessary to protect patients from Col-19. As an actor my smile is an asset. Dr. Veligdan has been invaluable in keep my smile looking bright and natural. He takes his time with patients, and explains each and every procedure thoroughly.

Dr. Veligdan is a wonderful dentist. He spends whatever time is necessary to make sure we have covered all the right bases for each visit. He explains everything, makes sure I am at ease and always checks up to see if I am OK later!!! He is helping me recover and move forward after some difficult dental experiences!! Thank you so much, Dr. Veligdan! So grateful!!! My smile is starting to look like me again!!!

Dr. Veligdan is excellent! I am a professional Trombone Player, in other words I make my living with my embouchure. Over the years a few of my teeth had shifted causing problems with my “chops.” Dr. V listened patiently to my meticulous explanations of how the trombone mouthpiece should fit on my lips and how the teeth behind my lips must be comfortable and secure in order to make the proper embouchure. After a THOROUGH consultation we decided on a strategy using Invisalign Corrective Trays. I am just starting week six and have eight more weeks to go before my teeth will be repositioned. At that time we will finish up with some minor bonding. Dr. V paid particular attention to the positioning of the ”attachments” (or “nubbies” as I called them) so that they did not interfere with my embouchure. Because the Invisalign trays are so incredibly thin, I am actually able to play my trombone while I’m wearing the trays. As a professional player this was absolutely essential. Additionally, Dr. Veligdan is super nice and very knowledgeable about the music world and has an excellent and friendly staff that I’ve enjoyed getting to know. I cannot recommend highly enough!!

Caren S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Veligdan is one of the very best doctors I’ve been to. He cares about his patients and is extremely thorough. He takes time to explain what is going on as well as listen. He cares about a patient’s ability to afford services. He also cares about environmental factors involved in dentistry. He makes follow-up calls after your appointment to check and see how you are doing. He is so personable as well as acclaimed. I trust his wealth of knowledge and experience and am grateful to have such a wonderful doctor.

Maria Rosa A. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Veligdan is the best dentist I ever had. Previous dentists have tried to push for major work and surgery, but Dr. Veligdan always tries to find the most conservative and effective treatments . For example when someone else wanted to do a full crown , he suggested partial crown to save the tooth and money. Others suggested gum surgery and he is doing non-surgical gum treatment and spending a lot of time teaching me to take care of the gum infections . I cannot thank him enough !The best! Maria Rosa

Dr. Veligdan is not only an exceptional dentist but also doctor. He takes his time with patients and explains what he is doing. He answers all questions. He is one of the most conscientious doctors I’ve ever seen. In addition, he is sensitive to financial costs and insurance coverage. I fully trust Dr. Veligdan’s intelligence, experience, and practices.

Brittany C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Google)


Dr Veligdan and his staff are amazing! I have always been afraid of the dentist and afraid to smile. When I went in for my consultation he took his time finding out my needs and wants. He is very detail oriented and made me feel comfortable. We put together a treatment plan to fix my dental pains, prevent future concerns and in the process focused on cosmetics so I could feel good about my smile. My experience at this office has not only changed my dental fears but my life. I am know a much more confident person because I am not afraid to show my teeth! Thanks Dr. V!

Ashley Kern (Source: Google)


I had my first visit with Dr. Veligdan today and he was amazing! He made me feel so comfortable and welcomed and took his time explaining everything to me. He looked for the root of the problem rather than just now to cover it up and make quick money. Plus he used as little chemicals as possible. He truly cares about his patients health and well-being!!

Ari I. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr. V after severe pain I had which was caused by another dentist doing a botched job on fillings. I ended up having a root canal, performed by Dr V. The thing that amazed me about the treatment I received was the fact that the Dr explained EVERYTHING in great details in layman’s terms so I could understand. He did not try to push a particular treatment or medicine if he didn’t see necessary. His office staff are very courteous and professional too. Dr V should be every New Yorker’s dentist! HIGHLY recommended, 5 stars all around.

Cliff H. from Cedar Park, TX (Source: Yelp)


When my wife required reconstruction of her front teeth, Dr.Veligdan provided professional guidance and valuable information, since we didn’t know what we didn’t know about the process and the precedure. We established a budget and Dr.Bob performed magic. Awesome ethics, professional courtesy and masterful execution of the procedure. I highly recommend this fine surgeon. There may be other dental offices in the City, don’t bother calling them, Dr.Veligdan is simply the best.

Ms R. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a wonderful dental practice. Cathy is a very efficient and kind receptionist, who is always prompt and exact in her feedback … typically I always have to chase people up, but not Cathy. The dental hygienist (Roberta I think) is also a really nice person and a calm influence while you’re getting prepared for treatment. Dr Veligdan is just the best. After a traumatic incident at a dentist as a child I never typically went to dentists if I could avoid it. With the pain in my back tooth recently, and watching a documentary realizing the toxicity of the mercury filling I had done about 15 years ago, I decided to change this pattern to get over my anxiety and not only fix the pain issue but start being proactive about my teeth/gum health. I could not have picked a better dentist to make that change with. I have been out of there twice now after root canals to the sound of classical music rather than a drill – on neither occasion did I have to take so much as a paracetamol for pain afterwards, let alone anything stronger. This tells me something about the care and gentleness with which I was treated. I also got phone calls from the doctor on both occasions that evening to check how I was doing and that there was no pain or anything concerning, which there wasn’t. At other dentists I never had those calls even though I needed them, ironically. Not only was my care top notch from start to finish, but using this practice is helping to turn around my anxiety about going to the dentist. The office doesn’t have that horrific dental/hospital smell either.

On a professional and human level you immediately intuit that with Dr. Veligdan you are in the BEST possible hands. Professionally: decades of experience, obvious passion and enthusiasm for his work enables him to share in minute detail with great patience every step of the treatment. You are at ease. His holistic approach encapsulates all that is best; a philosophy which brings to the fore human qualities of search, kindness, compassion, which are shared by his caring and supportive staff. Best experience ever capped by a phone call from Dr. Veligdan to make sure I was doing OK. Thank you, I am so grateful.

Dr Veligdan is a dentist with an eye for detail and he genuinely empathizes with his patients. He is not only astoundingly knowledgeable and accredited, he is also warm, kind and obviously loves what he does.His patient’s comfort is key. His dental expertise is only matched by his artful craft.His staff also goes above and beyond expectations.I highly recommend Dr Veligdan.

Diahann M. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Veligdan is a great dentist!  He is gentle, thorough and kind.  I have a fear of dentists and my teeth show it.  I almost cancelled my appointment several times but I am so glad I went.  He was detail-oriented, checked every tooth in my head and kept me abreast of what he was doing and what needed to be done.  His receptionist was also cordial and friendly.  I chose him because of his reviews and the fact that he was a holistic dentist.  And am I  glad I did. I am actually excited about future appointments and I plan on getting appointments for my kids too.  Keep up the good work, Dr. Veligdan!!

Dr. V is a trusted and accomplished dentist who has been serving patients around Manhattan for several decades. I have seen him for over 12 years, as has my wife. His services are first rate. His charges are appropriate for NYC dentistry and his office assists with processing insurance reimbursements.

Mara G (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. V has been my dentist for literally decades. He also cared for my parents’ dental needs for just as long (sadly, they are no longer around, but I always feel my father’s presence when Dr. V is working on my teeth). Plan to continue seeing him until he retires. Also, very pleased with his current staff – Bonnie and Rashida.

Olga K. from Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Guilty. I do not like dentists !!!! All our fears come from our childhood and not so pleasant visits to the doctors. We often react on the very subconscious level. We have anxiety and cannot pinpoint why. After the visit, I was thinking why my anxiety disappeared during visiting the dental office? 1)When I stepped into the office the first thing hit me was the fact that I did not smell anything … I did not smell that unique mix of formaldehyde and eugenol. My anxiety level was close to zero. 2) Soft classic music was calming me down while I was waiting. 3) Doc. Veligdan examined me very thoroughly showing me the high definition x-ray and explained the problems I had for at list 15 min. 4) He is very knowledgeable and professional !!!!!. 5) Another thing I admired was the alternative treatment he suggested including visiting other doctors. 6) His call 8 or 9 PM to check on me came as a surprise. ( I have never had anybody calling me from the doc office even after surgeries with anesthesia !!!) 7) The doctor calls your back within 2-3 hour frame and sees you ASAP if you leave a voicemail that you have a bad pain ( It was my case). 8) He will try all the methods to save one’s tooth and postponed decay or root canal. I can continue listing what I liked about Dr. Veligdan…. My advice is to make an appointment and see the dental God by yourself. God bless you Dr. Veligdan !!
