Pay no mind to any bad reviews coming from others! I have to giggle when I read negative reviews that focus on small reception areas as that does not mean much when we are talking about NYC and space! Dr. Schwalb is known as one of the best in the city and the amount of people he sees is a testament of his work! His popularity and willingness to provide individual attention to each case is evident when you see the waiting room. Not to mention, I believe he shares the office space with a surgeon. As for empathy free cases – never. He has dealt with our daughter who is special needs and I have to say- he has a way with dealing with young teens and their anxiety to the chair and patient room. He was very transparent with an action plan for her… He handled our case with respect and gave our daughter all the attention she needed. He even went beyond and gave us his cell phone number so that if anything ever happened to our daughter and braces he would see her. We look forward to sending our son to him next! Highly recommended!

I’m currently 4 months into my treatment and I couldn’t be any happier. Not only with the the progress made, but also the amazing service by Doctor Schwalb and his staff. He is so polite and attentive, always cracking jokes, making sure I’m comfortable and really goes the extra mile in everything he does to ensure complete satisfaction of the patient – to which is very hard to come by these day, and for that I am very thankful. Going into a long term commitment like this, I was skeptical that whoever would just be nice at first to get the money and then not care that much, but Dr Schwalb has been the total opposite – he is just as nice as the first day I met him for my consultation and keeps getting better with every visit. Thank you for always being professional, honest and most of all caring. You’re the best! Highly recommend.

I’ll have to lay it out plain and simple. i went from the worst orthodontist who takes Healthplex to the best-Dr. Schwalb. I can’t put into words the professionalism by both the Dr and his staff. Let me give it a try: professional, clean, worthy, attentive and helpful. I read all of the other reviews and couldn’t disagree more with the negative one. poo on them! And his one staff member “C____” (you know who you are), she put more time and effort into helping me resolve my insurance issues with the previous orthodontist, i think i want to marry her! I highly, highly recommend Dr Schwalb***

I just had my last appointment at Dr.Schwalbs office and I can’t be more pleased! I couldn’t tell you what it was like before I had my braces, now I feel like a whole new person. I’m so confident and love my smile. Such a wonderful group of people, no matter if they just put on your braces and your teeth are achey, or you had your teeth filed, they make you feel great! A big thank you to all the staff there and Dr.Schwalb himself!!

I just finished my braces with Dr. Schwalb and can’t say enough good things about him.  I have such a beautiful smile now and the process was so easy from start to finish.  Before my consultation, I had called the business office because I had a lot of questions about my insurance and my flexible spending.  Kris was really valuable in helping me decide what to put aside and explained the insurance so that I could understand it before I even stepped in the door.  After my consultation we sent in my insurance and once everything came back I started my new adventure of getting braces.  The staff in the office are super sweet and really know what they’re doing.  I was very nervous at first, but they were very patient with my questions.  Dr. Schwalb gave me a really great smile that I can be proud of…thanks again to you and your team!

Dr. Schwalb treated my son two years ago and did a superb job, So, of course, why wouldn’t I get my braces with him at 45, I’m on my 5th month and my teeth look stunning, I enjoy my visits, his staff are extremely kind and  consummate professionals. his attention to detail is above reproach, I feel extremely lucky to be receiving my treatment there.

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


Dr. Schwalb is very personable and approachable. One of the reasons I chose him for my daughter’s orthodonture was his direct and honest approach. He pretty much laid out what had to be done in her course of treatment and we were always apprised of her progress. My daughter’s braces were removed yesterday and she has a great result, beautifully straight teeth. Everyone on his staff were always helpful and professional. We rarely had long waits. A big thank you goes out to Chris in his NJ office who was so helpful in alerting us towards an under the radar dental insurance plan. She always managed to fit us in with appointments to accommodate our schedule and even assisted with dentist referrals. You made this experience for my daughter a very easy and pleasant one. Thank you.

Esmeralda D. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Schwalb and his staff are very professional, knowledgeable and very kind. I admit to having moderate to high levels of anxiety when visiting the Dentist. My past experiences in Dental offices have been unpleasant. But Dr. Schwalb explained the procedures and made me feel super comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Schwalb!!!!

Maria S. from Astoria, NY (Source: Yelp)


Love Dr. Schwalb. I am towards the end of Invisalign treatment with him and have had a wonderful experience. He is very down to earth and makes all of his patients feel comfortable. I have always felt very at ease in his office as he answers all my questions allowing me to feel confident during each visit. The office staff is equally kind and very helpful. They are always happy to speak with your insurance company FIRST so there aren’t any surprises in regards to what the out of pocket cost will be. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwalb!

Argen C. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Schwalb and his team are the best.  First, he’s a busy doc- so prepare yourself for sometimes waiting an extra 10 min or so. You will not be disappointed. He is super transparent with treatment plans and once you are his patient- he is beyond accommodating. He has taken care of both my children and there have been times that we have come to his apartment lobby to make some quick adjustments or repair. He’s a a text away. Our son had a game one- and braces popped- went to ER and Dr. Schwalb came to the rescue to fix. He’s honest, funny, and beyond super nice with the kids. Thank you Dr. Schwalb.

Dew P. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience with Dr. Schwalb – he’s a cookey guy but has a great staff that keeps him organized… Dr. Schwalb really cares about his patients – I got invisalign with him and he was fair on price and continued treatment until I was satisfied with my teeth even though it required ordering another set of invisalign… Anyway, all in all a good experience and my teeth look great.

Sameer J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I first saw Dr. Schwalb a couple years ago when I had lost my original retainer / nightguard and needed a replacement. I remember him being very professional, efficient, and honest — if I recall correctly, he offered me 2 options, and I chose the thinner, cheaper, more comfortable option. I returned to see him earlier today because I was worried that my teeth had slipped back into an edge-to-edge bite, which my dentist cautioned could lead to chipping. He told me that if I wear my nightguard all the time, there is little danger of chipping, as my teeth will typically not be touching during the day. He said that he could correct my bite, but that it would cost thousands of dollars and leave me with gaps between my teeth which I’d then need my dentist to fill in. Dr. Schwalb had every incentive to offer me as much treatment as possible, but instead he gave me honest advice that saved me (and lost him) thousands of dollars! I was also out of there in 20 minutes, without feeling like our appt was rushed. If I could, I’d perhaps subtract half a star for the fact that my teeth are now end-to-end, but it’s possible they had already slipped back to that position by the time I originally went for a replacement retainer/nightguard, as at that point I had gone several months without wearing my retainer/nightguard.

Dr. Schwalb and staff are outstanding.  I did some research and there were plenty of other places that had lower prices but I am very satisfied with the services I’ve received here.  I’ve heard horror stories from people who went elsewhere and wasted their money.  Teeth straightening isn’t something where you should be looking for a deal.  Location is super convenient and they’re always accommodating to appointment adjustments.

Fabulous Doc. He has seen both my sons and we could not have been happier. Excellent value for money and he is kind and patient with teenagers. After a terrible experience with an orthodontist in South Africa when we were away for one year, we were so happy to come back to Dr Schwalb.

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


After having Dr Schwalb and his team take care of my kids I was able to make it in to take care of my teeth.I am so excited because I just finished my Invisalign  today and received my retainers.   It was such an easy process from start to finish and I’m so happy that I chose Dr. Schwab and his office to take care of me .  I worked really closely with the business office because of my flexible spending and complicated insurance and they were able to get me so much more than I thought I would get, it was very much appreciated. And the assistants and front desk are really awesome and took such good care of me… I feel like family, thanks for my amazing smile.

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


Both my son and my daughter were patients of Dr. Schwalb.  He was top-notch and we are all thrilled with the results.  My daughter just got her braces off and her teeth look amazing.  The office is incredibly easy to work with- it was never a problem to schedule my kids at the same time, or to make relatively last-minute changes in their appointment times.  I highly recommend Dr. Schwalb.

I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Schwalbs services. My results were better then I ever could have imagined! Appointments were easy to make and the office staff was super accommodating (even when I had to bring my infant with me to some appointments.) Everyone there is just so friendly. They were super clear about billing. I highly recommend their services!

Dr. Schwalb is not only a great orthodontist, but he’s a stand-up guy, too. A few years ago, as my daughter began to receive her adult teeth, she developed severe aesthetic issues due to overcrowding. She was very embarrassed, so we decided to “bite-the-bullet” and fix them temporarily. Dr. Schwalb went above and beyond to make her smile beautiful. A few years later, when her adult teeth finally came in, they were terribly crooked again! Dr. Schwalb agreed to fix them and I must say that he was very fair to us a return customer. You will not be disappointed by Dr. Schwalb!

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


I chose Dr Schwalb after a few consultations with other doctors. I wanted Invisalign. He seemed very experienced and his being a premier provider for invisalign made me confident in my choice. It has all been going smoothly. There are no yucky impressions and only one low radiation x-ray was needed. Also 6 months ago, my daughter started traditional braces with Dr. Schwalb. It took some coaxing to get her to go, but Dr. Schwalb and his staff made her feel very relaxed and in charge. Dr. Schwalb and his staff are great !

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


Dr. Schwalb really is the best orthodontist in New York City. He gave me a great smile and people always compliment me on how straight my teeth are. He does his job in a friendly, caring manner. Not only is he personable, but his staff is incredibly warm as well. I highly reccomnend him for all your orthodontic needs.

Olga G. from Astoria, NY (Source: Yelp)


Just had my top braces put in and I couldn’t be happier! Dr. Schwalb is simply fantastic! He was very thorough in explaining every detail and option available when it came to straightening my teeth. His bedside manner is impeccable! Amazing and very friendly staff, they made me feel so at ease during the whole process. The office goes out of their way to work with you in every aspect of your treatment. If you’re an adult thinking about getting braces, this is the place to go. Scheduling an appointment with Dr. Schwalb was the BEST decision I could’ve ever made. I’m on my way to a beautiful and confident smile!

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


I got invisalign from Dr. Schwalb and am very happy with both the treatment and results. Dr. Schwalb was always conscious of my concerns, answered all my questions and continued treatment until I was satisfied. His staff consists of a bunch of sweet ladies who are efficient and knowledgeable. For all the people complaining about Dr. Schwalb’s demeanor, I totally don’t get it, he has always been super pleasant. He is terse and focused when it comes to the actual purpose of the appointment, which is why this office manages to run on time. Also, I have been pretty punctual to all my appointments and have NEVER had to wait more than five minutes. This is a huuuge positive, especially when so many practices in the city tend to have insane wait times. I was able to stop in during my lunch hours knowing that I wouldn’t be cutting into my work day, super convenient!

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


Ron Schwalb is very professional and approachable orthodontist, with an equally attentive and kind staff. I’ve had my braces done here a few years ago, and the end result was excellent. He is to the point and efficient – which makes it easy to come in during a work day. Can’t find a better orthodontist in midtown Manhattan!

Chloe L. from East Village, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been receiving treatment for Invisalign over the past year and am very happy with the care, treatment and overall results I am seeing. The team here is very caring and wonderful! I highly recommend. They are very patient and very thorough. I have really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Schwalb and his entire team!

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


You will not be sorry if you go to this office. Not only is Dr Schwalb someone who does only what’s necessary and at an unbelievably fair price, and serves all socio-economic groups (UNlike Park Avenue orthos who charge double what he does), his insurance maven, Kris, is fabulous. She is always proactive, responsive, efficient as hell, and gives you all the information you need without your having to ask. Just today after I had trouble with another office and the insurance, she made a call and straightened the entire situation out, saving me thousands of dollars. She goes the extra mile with evening emails, morning calls, and is always cheerful. Some reviewers here are complaining about Dr Schwalb being sarcastic. I don’t see him that way. He is not gonna baby talk to your kid, but he is fair, knows his stuff, and has a dry wit. AND he has great deals with the insurance companies. So far my daughter never dreaded going there and we are very pleased.

India O. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


As a child I always new I needed braces, but was to ashamed of what  “the other kids” would say. I went to see Dr. Schwalb as an adult at the age of 35 because I was developing a complex about my teeth and as a result made me extremely unhappy. I felt as if they were getting worse and I was even scared to smile, especially in photos. On 08/12 I visited Dr. Schwalb, he explained treatment precisely, with affordable pricing and financing, so I went for it. At first I must admit, I was miserable, but soon after… I ajusted and even got used to it. The staff was very friendly. OMG!!! thank you Adriana, Mabel, and Kristine for working around my schedule and never making me wait longer than expected and thank you for being supportive, friendly, but most important professional at all times, and… Dr. Schwalb You are amazing at what you do… and extremely patient through all of my whining. You kept a great sense of humor through it all and was adamant about my treatment and making my teeth perfect. My braces were removed on 05/14 and today… I am the most happiest I’ve ever been, my confidence level is up the roof, my smile looks amazing. I recieve compliments all the time on what a beautiful smile I have. My life has changed because of you, and if I should have do it all over again… I would. Love you guys!!!

I’ll admit it, I’m REALLY picky and a bit high maintenance about my doctors/dentists. In fact, I was so traumatized by a bad dental experience a few years ago that I avoided anything teeth related for almost 4 years – yeah, really bad… After changing insurance and having a amazing experience w/ my new dentist, I got a referral from them for Dr. Schwalb as I was on a mission to beautify my smile. I read some of the bad reviews on here but wasn’t entirely deterred b/c we live in an age where people like to be treated like PRINCESSES and coddled and a dr who is direct & to the point does not translate to grumpy for me. Bottom line, I am SO GLAD I went! Dr. Schwalb’s office is nice and clean, his staff is friendly & consistent (I always see the same familiar faces) and he has been nothing but friendly & kind every time I see him. He even remembers my profession, the fact I was getting married, etc. and always asks about both. My invisalign was short & sweet and when I needed more refinement (even though I really didn’t want to do more) he encouraged me to continue treament & get my money’s worth from Invisalign since the additional trays were no extra cost. I would whole heartedly recommend him as he was professional and really, a very good orthodontist.
