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

Joe C. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Today’s appointment was for a routine cleaning and hygiene visit. I was positively impressed by the diligent use of PPE on the equipment, by my hygienist, and by all the staff. The office, as always, was spotless. In the midst of COVID-19, I felt extremely safe and well cared for. I always appreciate how thorough and caring Ann, my hygienist, is. At the end of this and every visit with her, she provides easy to understand information about the condition of my gums and teeth, which I truly appreciate.

As always, I enjoyed seeing Diane who has taken excellent care of my dental health as a dental hygienist for more than 10 years! She is highly professional, friendly and very caring! As we were talking about my ongoing house hunting activities, I said to her that I will still come to see her even if I move to a different town. That says all! Needless to say, I love and respect my dentist-Dr. Seligman very much too!

Timothy H. from Arlington, MA (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended by my boyfriend to this dentist and I am someone who has always had anxiety about my smile and having dental work done in general. Needless to say my visit there was better than I could have expected. Dr. Seligman was very personable and kept me at ease. I don’t remember the assistant who was with him, but she was amazing and so nice too. They kept me calm as I had my first cleaning in over a year and I left feeling very positive and assured about my dental health and left knowing that I had found a dentist I could really put my trust in. I highly recommend this dentist if anyone is new to town like I was and in need a really professional and high quality establishment.

Dr Seligman has been my dentist for 15 years and I am completely  satisfied and pleased with my dental care. He is very knowledgeable of all new dental techniques and procedures, the instruments are “state of the art”. He is always on top of any potential dental problem and provides excellent thorough preventive care. He is compassionate, empathetic and committed with a wonderful bedside manner. The office is very organized and well managed.  All of the staff are professional, highly skilled, friendly and exhibit sensitivity and understanding.  I highly recommend the dental office of Dr. Seligman.

My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Seligman for more than 30 years. We have always been satisfied with the work we had done in his office, cleanings, fillings, root canals, crowns, you name it. He listens when I say something doesn’t feel right (I had an abscess that wasn’t obvious but he took my observations seriously and found it.) He and all his staff have the highest level of professional competence. I would, and am, recommend him to anyone who needs dental work done.

Lee K. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Seligman Dental for about ten years. He is a fabulous dentist and euns an efficient competent office. He gives me very good exams at every visit. His hygienists are very thorough. I never feel rushed but my appointments are never late. The staff throughout is so pleasant. Very good dentist and practice.

Eran M. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to the practice for over 20 years and have had nothing but outstanding care. Dr. Seligman is a very skilled clinician, so if I had to, I would be willing to put up with other inconveniences. The unusual thing about this practice is, there are no weaknesses. The whole team has always been outstanding and friendly. And the practice runs on time. You really can have your cake and eat it too (as long as you brush afterwards). A shout out to my dental hygienist extraordinaire, Diane

For the past three years, I have been pleased to recommend Seligman Dental Designs as the best dental practice I have ever known. I trust this practice implicitly and suggest that anyone in need of a fine dental team check them out. The staff are professional, competent, extremely caring and polite. Their focus is on the patient.

I love working with Dianne at Seligman. Not only is she thorough and gentle while being effective in assessing my oral health she is pleasure to spend an hour with. Greet asset to your practice. Everyone is very nice as well. Dr S is very smart and personable. There is no scam or up selling. Really prefer his type of practice. I’ve been to over 10 dentists in my life and this rates in the top 2.

Joe C. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


After moving into the city several years ago, I reluctantly decided to sever ties with my long term Wellesley dentist. It was then that I sought Dr. Seligman’s practice for my oral health care. Although I very much liked my former dentist, it was only after experiencing the beyond expectations comprehensive care that is the standard in Dr. Seligman’s office that I understood what superb care really was. It took a commitment on my part as well, but now I have a healthy, great looking smile. If you’re serious about having attractive, healthy teeth and gums, this is the place to go.

Anna C. from Quincy, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Seligman’s for 22 years. I have never had reason to complain of the professional services I have received. He is up to date on the latest procedures and technologies and his office is filled with state of the art equipment. The office staff is competent, friendly and helpful at all times. i have never had to wait overlong in the waiting room for my turn in the Doctor’s or hygienist’s chair. I think my long association with Dr. Seligman speaks for itself and I would wholeheartedly recommend his service to anyone looking for any kind of dental service.

I was running late due to traffic, but they saw me anyway, and even gave me a bottle of water after I ran to the office and got myself out of breath. They then managed to do a thorough cleaning within the timeframe, as well as the cancer check. These people are nice, kind, understanding, professional, and good at what they do. Highly recommended.

Ellen G. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Seligman was terrific.  I went to see him on the recommendation of a friend for a loose filling!  He was efficient, diligent and thorough.  And personable too.  He gave me a shot and he was so gentle and compassionate.  Too bad I don’t live here full time, I would definitely go to him!

Michelle H. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just had my first appointment, and I am very satisfied and impressed with the doctor. If you are new, he does your cleaning. He was personable, very timely, and knowledgeable. The cleaning was very thorough, and the best part was the honest, genuine treatment plan I received. Since I’ve been in Boston, it has been hard to get a teeth cleaning every six months without feeling like I’m getting an unreasonable list of follow-up appointments needed. Dr Seligman was the opposite, and I haven’t had better intuition or experience about this practice. I’m referring my fiancé, and am happy I found the right dentist in Boston.

Mimi C. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve live in the South End for over 30 years and I cannot believe I didn’t know about this place! It would have saved a lot of time finding the right dental office. The staff are warm and inviting. The hygienist, Anne, was very pleasant to work with. She looked at my teeth and knew my habits. I’ve never been to a dental office where someone told me I had thin enamels, why I might have that, and the effects of that for teeth whitening (sensitivity). I learned so much about my teeth in 1 sitting. Definitely recommend this dental office! Still not sure? They have watermelon and mint flavored lip balms. Not together, but one of each.

Jerry Kadish (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Seligman is the best! He does great work and his team of assistants are all top notch! Whether you have a dental emergency that needs immediate attention or you are just scheduling a cleaning or exam i highly recommend you give him a call.

David D. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Today was my first visit to Dr. Seligmans office. The front office was fantastic in helping me get into a last minute appointment. Dianna, the dental hygienist, was fantastic. She had great attention to detail and was very friendly! Dr. Seligman was very thorough with his exam and was very friendly and welcoming. I’m looking forward to maintaining a relationship with their office!

Lauren M. from Boston, MA (Source: Google)


I’ve been coming here for a over 5 years and I feel that Dr Seligman and the hygienists’ treat dental health and overall health very importantly. It’s a great office and you can tell how much they care about what they do. The office is clean and pleasant. Dr Seligman and all the staff are very client focused. I would highly recommend him and the care that they provide!

I called at 8:15am Monday, morning to report a broken temporary crown. and by noon I was in a dental chair having Dr Seligman putting in a replacement (about a 30-40 minute procedure). This certainly was not the first time in my two decade + relationship with the practice where I encountered such responsiveness to unexpected urgent problems. It is what I have experienced many times over the years. Speaking as a physician who understands the challenges of accommodating unscheduled urgent visits, this degree of responsiveness is truly remarkable!

Tara T. from Saugus, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr Seligman for many years and continue to be impressed with the service and staff at this practice. He is extremely knowledgable and always spends time explaining everything and answering all questions. I also see Diane (hygienist)  regularly as she is one of the best in the business. If you are looking for a safe, cutting edge  , professional practice , Dr Seligman is for you!

David O. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Please use this dental office for all of your dental needs! I had an emergency crown needing attention. They got me in within a few hours, and during this crazy pandemic and the Xmas week. They were attentive and professional and simply very very nice. Dr. Seligman and the entire staff are simply the best.

Douglas S. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


For all the many years prior to becoming a Seligman Dental Designs patient, going to the dentist meant anxiety, dread, and pain. However, after a while, I noticed those all went away. Dr. Seligman, his team, and network of specialists have done miraculous work over the year, not only saving my teeth and gums but getting me to take better care of them myself as well. I can’t imagine a dental practice that could do better.

Louis Botta (Source: Google)


In all my life, out of at least three dozen dentists I’ve been to (consider I had 22 years in the military), I’ve been totally comfortable and relaxed with only two dentists and Dr. Seligman is one of them. First, the Dr. Impeccable bedside manner, knows if and when you’re stressed and knows how to make you comfortable. Professional competence personified. Then there’s the staff. Just amazing. Professional and funny a the same time. I no longer grab the end of the arm rest like a set of vice grips. from the stress. Consider I live in central New Hampshire and I make the two-hour trek every six months to get my cleaning and dental work. They’re worth it.

David D. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


After many years with a previous dentist, I decided to find one closer to home. Dr. Seligman’s practice was recommended to me by a colleague. What a great recommendation! My reception was warm and inviting. The staff were pleasant and courteous. My appointment was right on time. My appointment was with Dr. Wysocki, who was very personable and instantly made me feel like he had known me for a long time. We had a nice intro chat and discussed my history, and then he and the hygienist went to work. Zameida, the hygienist was delightful! They both explained everything that was going on and made sure that I felt comfortable at all times. Dr. Seligman even made a point to stop in and greet me. I highly recommend Seligman Dental Design. The practice is warm, inviting, professional, and has its patients’ dental interests, safety, and comfort front and center. Seems I have found a great new dentist surrounded by a fantastic team.

Naomi B. from Watertown, MA (Source: Yelp)


Seligman Detnal has been my dentist for 12 years. Every member of the team is friendly, helpful, and kind. Dr. Seligman is very personable and very skilled. Dianne is the best dental hygienist I have ever had. She is friendly and thorough. She remembers conversations we had 6 months or years earlier. She exhibits one of the overarching characteristics of this practice: she cares. They all really care.

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


When I find something I like, I stick to it. I’ve been to many dentists in my lifetime, and I’m happy to say that Dr. Seligman has been my dentist for over 10 years. His staff is professional, friendly and courteous. My hygenist, Diane, is fabulous — an extremely competent professional and a wonderful person. I so look forward to my time with her. Dr. Seligman put in several veneers on my front teeth which completely transformed my smile. He’s put in various crowns and fillings, and makes any needed adjustments promptly. Having his own crown making machinery saves time — everything done in one appointment, I couldn’t recommend Dr. Seligman and has staff any higher!

Beth L. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Seligman for roughly 15 years. I have never sat in the waiting room for more than 5 minutes, usually I walk right in. Diane is a great hygienist. She’s efficient and pleasant. Dr. S. Installed 6 veneers for me that look fabulous and have held up quite well over the years. He matched the veneers perfectly with my surrounding teeth. He’s also injects Novocain in such a way that I experience minimal discomfort. As others have mentioned the office is pristine. I can’t recommend Dr. Seligman and his staff highly enough.

Bryan F. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Seligman is really a people’s dentist.  He goes way out of his way to be accommodating.  For me, I was having an implant done and he worked his schedule around to make sure it was ready for big engagement I had.  His work is top notch and really treats his patients wonderfully.  If you are looking for a family dentist, he is probably the best in Boston.  No exageration.

Ryan DePoy (Source: Google)


I have been going to Dr. Seligman for the past 10+yrs and can’t recommend him and his team enough. They take time to explain the procedures and offer excellent care. Dr. Seligman and the team are the best at what they do and make going to the Dentist a much more enjoyable experience!

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Seligman for more than ten years. We love the team so much that we followed the practice from the previous Brookline, MA location to the South End. Personally, I have had myriad dental work due to the loss of my front teeth as a child plus a lack of adequate dental care for several years. Dr. Seligman helped care for my many cavities, root scaling, x-rays, crowns, and most recently, dental implants. The dental office is clean and updated and uses the current technologies and innovations in dental practice. My family goes to Seligman Dental Designs for everything from cleanings to surgeries, we trust them completely and can not recommend them more highly!

Jim H. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been working with Dr. Seligman for about five years. He, and his staff, are really professional and friendly. My longtime dentist moved. I had met Dr. Seligman socially, and a friend was one of his patients who is very pleased with his work, so I changed to Dr. Seligman. My hygienist, Diane, is really understands dental health and has helped me improve my day to day mouth care

Michelle E. from Jamaica Plain, MA (Source: Yelp)


Leaving a recommendation for a dentist feels weird, but this recommendation is for more than Dr. Seligman and Dr. Wysocki. I’ve been with this practice for a few years including through Invisalign treatment and the whole team is really just awesome. The front desk staff are empowered to do the right thing and they do – whether scheduling an emergency appointment, working with insurance, or communicating with the dental team. Same thing with the financial staff. I really feel like they are on my side. As for the dentists, hygienists, etc. it’s just a positive experience. They are prompt, friendly and great at what they do. I trust them completely. And absolutely no shaming or tsk-tsking if your teeth aren’t perfect when you come in — they’ll explain what they see, what’s causing it and what you need to do to get back on track. No one wants to be embarrassed by a doctor’s assessment — everyone here is very human and respectful. What I love about Dr. Seligman’s office is that they truly have a team in place that’s competent and allowed to do the right thing for their patients using their best judgment. I really appreciate the care I’ve received there through Invisalign and after.

Nikita P. from Greensboro, NC (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say how wonderful this practice is and how much I appreciate them. I live in North Carolina and was recently in town for work and was having some severe pain from a cracked tooth that needed a root canal. Dr. Seligman was able to fit me in on the day that I called in. Courtney was great at getting everything squared away with my insurance and home dentist records and they were ever so friendly when I arrive for my appointment. I left the office with no pain and a new dentist whenever I’m in Boston. Thank you so much!!!

Elena S. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good words for Dr. Seligman and his practice. It might be because I come from a family of dentists back in my home country, but before Dr. Seligman, I had had multiple dentists in three different states (VA, NC, and MA) just because I wasn’t happy with the providers and their services (i.e. sloppy, unsatisfactory dental work, overcharging, etc.) I am so happy that I found Dr. Seligman and his team. Dr. Seligman is friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. He takes the time to explain thoroughly any existent problems and the solutions to these problems. He always makes sure that the patient is comfortable with the procedure that is to take place. In addition, unlike some dentists, he treats only what is necessary and doesn’t try to find additional problems or recommend unnecessary procedures just to make some extra $. You can also be sure that you will only find top-of-the-line technology and treatments at Dr. Seligman’s office. I have had a crown done, and the whole process took less than 2 hours from start to finish! It was painless, quick and now no one can tell that the crown is not my actual tooth. Additionally, I have received two meticulously done dental cleanings from two different dental hygienists (Diane and Alina), and as strange as it may sound, but I am looking forward to my next cleanings. If you need a reliable dental practice with true professionals, Dr. Seligman’s office is THE ONE!

This is the BEST DENTAL PRACTICE I have ever been to. I am a physician myself and started going to Seligman Dental in 2012. I was always very happy there but when I moved to the suburbs I switched practices closer to home. After about a year I switched back to Seligman and now commute into the city for my dental care. The entire team is professional, the practice is immaculate, and they are not pushy with additional services. Dr. Seligman is very complete with his examinations and the hygienists are thoughtful, calm, and meticulous. I just love this practice and can’t recommend it enough. If you are at all considering where to get your dental care, I would join this practice in a heartbeat.
