Dr Seligman and the team are amazing professionals and people. We did some research before choosing Dr Seligman for our kids’ braces. We are so happy we found Dr Seligman. Both our kids have now beautiful teeth. Today our youngest daughter finished with her braces and she looks amazing. The whole process went exactly as Dr Seligman described. Visits had no wait time at all and everyone at the office made us feel welcome, respected, and cared for. We wholeheartedly recommend Dr Seligman and his team.

I highly recommend Dr. Seligman and can not say enough about him and his practice! On a hot summer day I walked through what is arguably the most beautiful door in Manhattan and entered a clean, modern and elegant office. At the counter I was greeted in a professional and warm manner. I was taken on time – not just for my consultation – but for all my appointments thereafter. Six months later I have the most beautiful teeth and my youthful smile back! Dr. Seligman is a perfectionist and uses the most state-of-the-art equipment to perfectly blend his skill with technology. If you are looking for a beautiful smile, in a beautiful office, where your time is respected – look no further!

Dr. Seligman is the utmost professional! From start to finish my son’s experience has been seamlessly pleasant. ( and that is saying a lot with a tween boy) His offices are clean and calm and his staff pleasant and accommodating. Did I mention the results… stunning.

My family consulted with a few orthodontic practices before we visited with Seligman Orthodontics. As soon as we walked in the door—- I knew this was the practice for us. The waiting room is warm and inviting and the staff are all professional and fabulous. My daughter had a challenging overbite and Dr. S was beyond caring through every part of the process. The final result was gorgeous!!! !Thank you Dr. S!!!

★★★★★

As a grumpy 62-year-old, I was not pleased to learn from my dentist that I needed braces, particularly since I endured them as a teenager. But then I met Dr. Seligman and team. I could not have imagined a more talented, caring, efficient and pleasant group of people. From insurance management, scheduling and communications to the medical staff and of course to Dr. Seligman himself— a simply terrific team. I truly began to look forward to my appointments. Results were phenomenal. Highest recommendation for a terrific practice.

★★★★★

Dr.Seligman is a wonderful doctor who aways keeps up with the latest in his feild. His practice is run impeccably. They are always on time, efficient, and kind. They work with families to select the best options for them. My son had a compounded problem with his teeth and bite, the doctor outlined a multiple-year strategy and meticulously executed on that, and updated us each visit on the progress, which was evident. My son is in such a better place now and we owe it to Dr.Seligman. I highly recommend him

★★★★★

Dr. Seligman and his staff are amazing. I know David socially, and he is a great guy, and always smiling. When I decided to do the Invisilign treatment, I shopped around, but decided to go with David for several reasons and I could not have made a better choice. Shayna, Brandy and the entire staff were so easy and pleasant to work with. The office and work areas are spotlessly clean and efficient. When there was a billing issue, they were ON IT, and corrected it to my satisfaction ASAP. I’m extremely happy and satisfied with the results. My smile has improved 100%!! I would highly recommend Seligman Orthodontics to anybody thinking of undergoing the Invisilgn treatment. Four snaps and three thumbs up!!

★★★★★

Dr. Seligman is for sure the best orthodontist in the city. My daughter had a severe situation of crowded teeth that prevented some of her adult teeth to come out. We have seen a few other doctors that suggested that she had to lose four of her adult teeth to address the situation! Finally we found Dr. Seligman that reassured us with a smile that he can solve the problem without losing any adult teeth. And he did! Dr. Seligman’s approach to braces is unique, creative and above all shows amazing results. He cares so much about his patients and so is everyone in his office. Every concern is answered with patience and kindness, always. We feel blessed to have met this wonderful doctor and his amazing team. Thank you so much Dr. Seligman!

★★★★★

Dr. Seligman and his wonderful team are exceptional and deserve more than five stars. From the moment I stepped through the door to the end of my treatment (over two years with Invasalign,) my experience is one of the highest level of care and professionalism anywhere. Dr. Seligman is a wonderful Orthodontist. His attention to detail, his perfectionism, individual care and most importantly the results – (straight, beautiful teeth after years of living with my badly sticking-out, crooked set – a result of growing up in England in the 1970s!) – are all enormously appreciated. I didn’t think it would be possible to achieve such great results. It is evident that Dr. Seligman cares about every detail of a patient’s experience in his office and it does not go unnoticed nor unappreciated. I cannot thank the team enough, nor recommend anyone more highly than Dr. Seligman.

★★★★★

Dr. Seligman is a genius! My story: All my life I had spaces between my teeth. One of the spaces was so big it literally looked like I had a tooth missing! One day my new dentist here in New York, Dr. Joseph Lattinelli, said he believed a good orthodontist could fix my teeth. Honestly, I was very skeptical. Aside from being in my 50’s, I thought my teeth were just too messed up. Dr. Lattinelli referred me to Dr. Seligman, who did a complete evaluation and said he could indeed bring my teeth together with braces. I was still skeptical. I thought it over and decided, “why not?” since I my teeth were healthy. My braces were installed and as the time passed I saw the spaces begin to close day by day. I wish you could see the “before and after.” I used to avoid smiling around people because I was so self conscious of my teeth. People cannot believe the difference, and have given me many compliments. I feel so much more confident now and my teeth look amazing–thanks to Dr. Seligman. His office is beautiful and has all state-of-the art equipment. And his staff are absolutely wonderful people, they treat you like family.

I never write Yelp reviews but this was one of those rare occasions where it deserved it. Dr. Seligman and his team have been nothing but fantastic throughout my treatment! Dr. Seligman himself is a perfectionist and it shows in his work. He has transformed my teeth and my smile and I could not recommend him highly enough. If you are thinking about having orthodontic work done this is the only practice you should visit!

★★★★★

From the second you walk into the Seligman Orthodontics office on the Upper East Side, you are invited in by smiling faces, a great staff, and a beautiful office. Not only that, but the work that Dr. Seligman has done to my teeth with the Invisalign braces has an absolute transformation for the better. My teeth are no longer crooked, crowded, and inhibiting to my confidence. They are in the best shape I ever remember my teeth looking! The doc is just a great guy as well and makes you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the whole process. I would refer anyone that I know to Dr. Seligman.

Valdez G. from Long Beach, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

After several non-successful orthodontic treatments over the years, I was referred to Dr. Seligman and couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Seligman and his staff are super friendly, they always operate on time, and most importantly Dr. Seligman takes the time with each patient to review and optimize your treatment until you get the results you want. I’m incredibly happy with the way my teeth look, and my only regret is that I won’t get to visit with their office as often anymore. I HIGHLY recommend if you live or work in NYC to go to Seligman Orthodontics above any other, even if you’re looking for minor refinement of your smile.

Christina C. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

An infinite sea of stars could not indicate Dr. Seligman’s mastery of orthodontia and facial aesthetics. As an “extraction reversal case” consulting with virtually every highly skilled orthodontist in New York City, I was astonished by Dr. Seligman’s knowledge, dedication, and empathy. He is a brilliant pioneer! His treatment plans do not consist of “one size fits all” antiquated, oftentimes harmful methods unfortunately still practiced by most orthodontists to date. Dr. Seligman explained how our teeth are the substructure for our faces leading to an individually geared optimal outcome. Through his innovative and pain-free use of Damon System, results were instant. Within a span of months Dr. Seligman has taken years off of my face; and we’re not even halfway done! From the naturalistic modernity of the space to the soothing classical notes accompanying the panoramic x-ray, walking into his office envelops you with an inviting warmth that instantly relaxes you. As soon as you step through the door, the attentive, accommodating staff along with Dr. Seligman’s efficient diligence only asks for fifteen or so minutes of your day; no wait at all! Dr.Seligman’s jovial charismatic approach will supersede your expectations of a perfect smile, and improve not only your face but also, your life!

this doctor was one of the best i’ve seen. as far a orthodontists go. i had a problem with a space in my teeth and he fixed it! and it was like in a little over a year with Damon braces. i was a little nervous at first, getting braces at my age.. but these new braces called the Damon braces they came in clear and metal and were so much smaller compared to when i was younger. he also, gave me the option to use invisalign but i opted for the clear braces. This Dr. and his staff were so friendly and helpful. i definitely recommend seeing him if you have any problem with your teeth.

I can’t tell you how long I’ve been insecure about my teeth. I’m not sure when it happened but at some point in my adult life, my teeth started shifting in strange directions and I swear anytime I spoke, people would stare and they weren’t staring at my beautiful face. I had always been scared to death of dentists so though I was developing issues, I avoided seeing one for nearly 20 years. As you can imagine, my dental health hit an all time low. I started coming up with different ways to hide my unsightly teeth. I’d cover my mouth with my hand when I spoke or I’d try not to move my lips too much or I just wouldn’t speak at all. I couldn’t even express how happy I was at times because I was ashamed of how my teeth looked. Finally, on my 36th birthday, I took one last look in the mirror of my nasty teeth and decided to get help. I was diagnosed with peridontitis. My heart sunk to my stomach. The first dentist suggested I remove all of my teeth and get dentures…. I needed a 2nd opinion. I was lucky enough to find my current perio and ortho. They’re a network of doctors that have a holistic approach to teeth and a teeth saving philosophy. I cannot tell you HOW LUCKY I AM to have found Dr. Seligman and his team. They are TRUE GEMS that are not only very knowledgeable, personable and professional but most importantly, compassionate. They care about my teeth! That is honestly so rare to come by. They helped me save the majority of my teeth and I am just a few months away from a perfect smile. This team deserves all the praise!!

Great orthodontics office (i’ve been to several), which i was referred to for my adult Invisaligns. Dr. Seligman is great, and his Upper East Side office is state of the art. The Chelsea office (close to my job) is smaller and has fewer hours, but more convenient if you live or work in that part of town. HIs staff is great and friendly, and so far I’ve been very happy with my care.

Dr. Seligman is simply spectacular – a ‘dental magician’. He and his staff are just wonderful; visiting their office was always a delightful experience (not what one might expect when each visit entailed dental work). More importantly, Dr. Seligman is an exceptionally talented orthodontist. I cannot recommend him more highly.

★★★★★

Seligman Orthodontics has been an amazing experience for my daughter. The two year journey with Dr. Seligman, and all the staff at this practice, has been so successful for my daughter’s teeth. She has the most beautiful smile now. Most important to me was my daughter’s connection and comfort level with Dr. Seligman. My daughter hates any kind of dental work, but Dr. Seligman has magician’s hand, where she never felt uncomfortable and was always amazed at how quick and precise he is for every visit. I really appreciated him explaining the whole process during our first visit with him, not only to me, but to my daughter. Her frame of mind was so positive going forward with her braces after speaking to him. She always looked forward to seeing Dr. Seligman for all her appointments! Dr. Seligman and his staff were always prompt to reply to any of our concerns and he took it upon him personally when i had any queries. I would highly recommend Dr. Seligman to anyone who is looking for a superior experience with orthodontic work. His facility is beautifully kept and all the staff is amazing as well! I have already recommended Dr. Seligman to multiple friends and they are all super happy with their experiences too!

The absolute best experience I could have dreamed of. We are so particular and I was very thorough in looking for an orthodontist for my three children. Dr Seligman came super highly recommended and he has been nothing short of excellent. He is professional, caring, has a great bedside manner and a complete perfectionist. He truly cares for his patients as if they were his own family. His staff is also the BEST. So friendly and on top of it. This office operates so seamlessly. Could not recommend with more confidence.

Dr. Seligman is by far the BEST orthodontist in NYC! His work is undeniably a work of art. I recently finished my treatment (just over a year) and I could not hold back my happy tears once I saw the smile I’ve always wanted! To begin, his staff is just wonderful, super accommodating, friendly and very professional. Without a doubt his team is experienced and provides the highest level of care. Dr. Seligman is a perfectionist and extremely knowledgable. His attention to the smallest detail is remarkable!! He really just has the kindest soul. I felt really cared for by Dr. Seligman and his team. Even during the middle of the pandemic, I always felt safe going in for my appointments. I am so happy with my results thanks to Dr. Seligman!

I really couldn’t imagine a better experience than with Dr. Seligman and his team. They are not only very knowledgeable/professional, but also just great people that actually made the experience enjoyable. Against all odds, I looked forward to my visits. Dr. Seligman is clearly best-in-class, fixing an issue my prior orthodontist made (now I’m pain free!). He’s extremely transparent about what he’s doing and where I was in the process and even followed up via email. Shayna and her team were extremely accessible and went above and beyond when it came to making appointments, billing, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend this practice to anyone considering orthodontic work! Why risk going anywhere else?

Dr. Seligman and his team are the best!! I had Invisalign treatment and my teeth have never looked and felt better. Dr. Seligman fixed my bite and straightened my teeth perfectly! I am so happy with my results I’ve even recommended him to friends of mine who are interested in Invisalign as well. My treatment was quick and seamless. I go back once a year for checkups and look forward to the appointments. I highly recommend this amazing team!!

On the way to my daughter’s appointment, my son who is almost finished with braces, said to her: “Don’t worry, you have the best orthodontist in NYC!”   And as a parental tooth-snob, I will attest to it. The entire office is joy. Everyone is professional, and they work together like an orthodontic dream team.   Dr. Seligman takes his time with his patients, both in treatment and for q&a. Nothing is cookie cutter about his operation. His professional manner is always sunny and he loves his work.

Late last year my dentist, of many years, approached me and started the discussion about my crowded teeth. The conversation focused on long term health issues versus cosmetic reasons. I was apprehensive but decided to move forward with an exploratory conversation. When I asked what the next step was he said “go see Dr David Seligman – he is the best in NYC – let him explain the process”. From the moment I walked in the door I realized that I was in good hands. Dr Seligman and his team walked me through the process in a simple and understandable way. He answered all of my questions including timing (approximately 14 months). He assured me it would be easy and that the time would pass quickly. I recently completed the program and I must say it was as explained – easy, painless and it went by quickly. I am so pleased that I moved forward and I am so fortunate that it was in the capable hands of Dr Seligman. All in all it was a very positive experience.– Steve Z NYC

Two thumbs up and kudos to the brilliant Dr. David Seligman and his wonderful professional staff at the Seligman Orthodontics NYC! Yesterday morning, my braces, both top and bottom, were removed 2 months earlier than projected! Precision, AUTHENTIC CARE and ATTENTION to fine details, ACCURACY, Gentle Bedside Manners, Dental Artistry, and Humility far surpassed my expectations! And the final result is the restoration of my brilliant smile on my face, and my SPIRIT! Thank you, David! I VERY highly praise and recommend this orthodontist and his practice!

We transferred care from our orthodontist in Florida to Dr. Seligman, and my son’s treatment did not miss a beat! Dr. Seligman and his office are all so welcoming and caring. My son’s teeth are perfect, and when I say perfect, I mean perfect. It is nice to have someone who is as diligent as Dr. Seligman, who not only has a great bedside manner but is also so conscientious in his approach, being mindful of both of patient comfort and progress. Our other children will be seeing him soon!

Amazing experience from beginning to end. Dr. Seligman and his entire staff are extremely nice and friendly. My son was always at ease during treatments. Our Appointments started on time and if we ever needed to come in last minute for any discomfort my son had, we were seen immediately on the same day. Overall A+!!! Thank You Seligman Orthodontics!!!

Both of my 15 year old twin daughters achieved amazing results with Dr. Seligman. I visited at least 5 other orthodonists before choosing him. My daughters had an open bite that every other orthodontist including Columbia’s Dental school said that 4 teeth had to be pulled to allow the 2 incisors to come down and close the bite. Dr. Seligman is the only orthodontist who was willing to take a wait and see attitude – he admitted that it might not be achievable up front. But after just 4 months of using Damon Braces, he said “they are out of the woods.” And after 18 months, and no teeth pulled, the results achieved are amazing – straight teeth and closed bites. I advise “when every other dentist says it can’t be done, visit Dr. Seligman, a truly talented and experienced professional. Deborah Cardile-Viddler Lifeways Nutrition

First, I need to say I am 63 years old.  I found Dr Seligman through a friend who had just completed her dental work with him and raved about his knowledge and passion for his profession.  I live 2 hours away but having heard my friend and meeting with Dr Seligman, I knew he was my choice.  I just completed 12 months of braces and I couldn’t be happier.  He is a caring professional and one that if you choose him, I know you will be happy with.  Also, his staff is friendly and caring which made my entire experience a great one.

I couldn’t have asked for a better orthodontist! I first learned about Dr. Seligman through gilt and initially I was skeptical about finding a doctor through a discount/shopping website, but I was not disappointed! I was actually pretty blown away by my experience. During my first consultation, a scan of my face was taken which allowed for Dr. Seligman to make an assessment on how my teeth should be fixed based on the bone structure of my face. It was carefully decided that Invisalign was the best option. A few days after my appointment a personal hand written letter from Dr. Seligman was sent to my apartment thanking me for choosing Seligman Orthodontics. Normally after a first appointment an email is sent or nothing at all. The hand written note adds a personal element that as a patient makes you feel like you doctor is personally invested in your health and your experience. The second appointment was when I received my first Invisalign trays. If you have ever had a retainer or invisalign, you know that the first day of wearing them is uncomfortable and painful. Knowing this, Dr. Seligman checked in to see how I was doing. Again, the personal message made me feel like I was in great hands. I would recommend Dr. Seligman to anyone who is searching for a reliable, excellent Orthodontist in Manhattan. Two huge thumbs up! Christine

Dr. Seligman is a Zen Damon Braces Master! As an adult going through orthodontic treatment and eventually jaw surgery, the process, at times, was completely daunting but Dr. Seligman’s care and knowledge made my time in braces bearable. His absolute confidence in what he believed would be a fantastic result was so reassuring. He and his staff (the awesome Nicole, Brandy, Stephanie and Shayna) regularly expressed genuine excitement over my transformation. Orthodontia is no walk in the park but with a team like this, I couldn’t help but look forward to my visits. I am so grateful! I highly recommend!
