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

Jess H. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a lovely visit with Dr. Choi, she’s so nice. Her assistant and receptionist were also warm and welcoming, making sure I was comfortable and checking if I needed anything. Dr. Choi was very transparent about what she was doing, checked in to make sure I wasn’t in pain, and explained all of my options to me about some upcoming dental work. Wonderful office and experience, completely changed my mind about dentists. Will definitely send my friends to her!

Was in NY on a business trip and needed urgent root canal. Fortunately a friend recommended Dr. Cho and Smile by Choice. I was thoroughly impressed by the expertise and professionalism from start to finish, and the human touch in every step from intake form to follow up check ins. My strongest recommendation.

Had an absolutely wonderful experience with Dr. Yoon Choi. She’s extremely nice, as was her assistant. She’s only been open for a few months now but I can see that she’s going to be very successful. What stood out to me was how much they cared about the little things during my experience. They asked if I needed water or anything, wanted to change the music, made sure nothing was too painful, and were extremely transparent about the procedure they were doing. I had a fair amount of work done and I am not that sore one day after, and I really have no complaints about the procedure. The office is very clean, simple and nice. No reason to be afraid of this dentist! I am sending all my friends to Dr. Choi.

Dr. Choi is A number 1! Not only is she super nice, but she is so gentle and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way! I used to hate coming to the dentist, but she makes what used to be a miserable horrific experience surprisingly enjoyable! I’d give 10 stars if I could. Go to Dr. Choi, you’ll be glad you did!

Most reviews written are always bad ones, and I understand why- because it’s easier to go about your day when you had a good experience compared to a bad one and you need to feel heard! Also, typically people feel that good reviews will drive up demand, and price and they won’t get to enjoy that same great service again. All that being said- what an incredible experience I had with Smile by choice today! When I booked yesterday – I spoke to a kind gentleman who took my information and helped me with any questions, it was so seamless and just felt very pleasant. I had a back up appointment made else where- incase I didn’t get the right vibe from this place being a new client. Which I immediately canceled after speaking with him. When I arrived, I was joyously greeted, all covid protocols were followed- being pregnant I was a slight bit afraid- but I relaxed after seeing that they even check your oxygen levels. Speak about Going the extra mile!! I had a lovely dental assistant who was so polite, and such a gentle voice when speaking to me and very attentive. Then the dentist came in and did my cleaning – possibly the best cleaning ever. But more than that- he took time to connect over chatting out my pregnancy, telling me a little about his own wife and kids, and most importantly educated me on so many things about my dental care, and my future dental options. Turns out this is the same gentle I spoke to on the phone yesterday when I booked. Himself and his wife are dentists and I think own Smile by choice – such a humble professional. I have been to many dentists in my decade of being in NYC- many with a huge chip of arrogance on their shoulder- so my experience was so refreshing and insightful- that I cannot wait to go back!!! I have already told my husband and friends to check out this dental practice and consider moving over. I cannot fault anything with my experience today. And really hope this service continues for all the many years to come. All the best to Smile by choice!

This has been the most pleasant and amazing experience with a Dentist and Dentist Office ever! Dr. Choi isn’t just a fantastic dentist, but also a remarkable professional taking full care of the patient making sure we feel comfortable during procedures, walking us through each treatment and intervention, and most importantly, making us feel safe. Dr. Choi also has the most advanced technology, treatments and training. This makes Dr. Choi, without a doubt, the Doctor to-go-to for a perfect smile!

Dr. Choi was very nice from the beginning. She was very gentle with the teeth, and made the cleaning process a very comfortable experience, making sure to minimize any pain. Her team was also very cordial, taking the coat and asking for any beverages. If you’re looking for a safe, trustworthy, go-to dentist, I strongly recommend her clinic.

I cannot say enough good things about this office. I loved it and will be back as long as it is an option for my son. We had his first visit recently and when we walked in all the staff already knew his name. They gave him presents to win his 2-yr-old heart and were SO NICE to him. They had such an easy way about them, letting him get comfortable with all the instruments (even let him squirt water around the office!). As a result, he was relaxed and had a great first appointment — everything went super easily and we all look forward to taking him back the next chance we get!

I cannot believe that I finally found a good dentist. The whole team is amazing. The secretary, the hygienist and Dr. Choi were great. If you choose Dr. Choi your search for a great dentist is over. She is knowledgeable, polite and patient. She is very honest about what you need and if your insurance does not cover something, she is very straightforward about of pocket expenses.

Dr. Choi and the entire staff at her office are wonderful. Dr. Choi is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She explains all procedures and options thoroughly and is skilled at what she does. I hadn’t been to a dentist in a long time and was a little worried, but my experience at Dr. Choi’s office was so great that it completely changed my views in such a positive way. Every one of Dr. Choi’s assistants is kind and helpful, and Angela at the front desk is super sweet. I highly recommend this office!

Dr. Choi is terrific with great bedside manner. It was my first root canal and I was nervous about it. But she made me feel at ease and I was impressed with the degree of care she showed throughout. Dr.Choi also spent sufficient time examining my teeth, walking through the procedure, and educating me on how to take care of my teeth. I feel like I’m in really great hands. My teeth got immediately pain free and the treatment is nicely done as was shown in the x-rays. I truly believe her work is top notch. Plus, very friendly staff and conveniently located office. I highly recommend Dr.Choi!!!

I have been with Dr.Choi for more almost two years now and I can say for sure that my experience with her has been by far the best compared to any other dentists in the city. She is not only patient but also listens to your concerns and really does what’s best for you. She makes clear assessments about your dental health and prioritizes what needs immediate intervention and what doesn’t but could eventually require a treatment. She will not wait until your tooth decays or a spot lesion appears. She will catch early signs of change and make preemptive measures as prevention is cheaper than cure. I trust her 100% when it comes to my dental health. If you are looking for a dentist who will take care of you over a long period of time, look no further.

(Translated by Google) English: My experience with Dr Choi and her staff was quite satisfactory, from the first moment you speak with her you realize that Dr Choi is very professional and has a lot of knowledge of the subject and one thing that I value very much and that many other dentists do not know the fact that during the treatment she takes the time to explain me to detail what she is doing during the process and in the post treatment. In addition, the work environment is very comfortable, cozy and clean. I definitely recommend the services of Dr. Choi 5 stars.

In addition, the work environment is very comfortable, cozy and clean. In short, I highly recommend the services of Dr. Choi, a 5-star service.

Dr. Choi and everyone at this office were SO kind! I have never had such a pleasant experience at a medical office. After leaving, I immediately went and recommended Dr. Choi to my friends who have been afraid to find a dentist in the city. There is a reason this place has so many positive reviews!

Couldn’t be more satisfied with Dr. Choi! She and her staff have a comforting manner when doing their work. Dr. Choi was also very informative and transparent about my options which made me more confident as I interacted with her. Her office uses some pretty great tech which the staff uses very effectively to let you know what’s happening and why. I really couldn’t recommend her enough!

I had a dental emergency and was in a lot of pain. I found Dr. Yoon Choi and I am so happy I did. She was incredibly cheerful and made the whole process very easy. My pain post dental work was completely non-existent in only a few short hours. In my experience with the same procedure done by other dentists, it usually is still painful the next day. The office was incredibly clean. You can tell she takes sterilization very seriously. Her assistant was incredibly friendly. I will be recommending her until the end of time.

Met with Dr Choi today and ended up needing a more intense cleaning than I was expecting – but she was extremely informative and gave me a reassuring path forward to achieve full dental health. The hygienist (Yessenia maybe? Sorry if that wasn’t your name!) was also very kind. Looking forward to going back when theyre in their new/permanent office.

Smile by Choice was simply fantastic. From friendly staff to seamless dental care, it was a breeze. Their covid precautions are top notch. Dr Nam and Dr Choi are easily one of the most friendly and professional doctors you will meet. Highly recommend this place to anyone seeking comprehensive dental care.

I love this place! I received the most amazing treatment from Dr.Choi and her wonderful assistant Lesley. At first, I was very nervous but thankfully everything went very well. The environment in this place is just as great as the service I received. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for an excellent dentist!

Thom Cameron (Source: Google)


I booked a consultation visit here, but it turns out I had an issue with my insurance. Instead of turning me away Dr. Yoon’s staff, Mary and Lesley, helped explain what the issue was and walked me through what to do next. Their kindness was above and beyond! I would recommend this place to anyone, even if you don’t have teeth! 🙂

Dr. Choi is a great dentist. I have serious phobias of dental work but her kind and gentle nature put me at ease and her assistant is a lot of fun as well as well trained. She explains everything to you clearly and professionally and works with your insurer. I highly recommend her. My whole family will now be her patients.

In NYC, I have been to about 5 different dentists in 5 years. They all felt impersonal and time-oriented (how many patients can I get through this hour?), as time with the dentist was minimal and I could hear other patients clamoring in the cubicles next door. Dr. Choi’s office is exactly the opposite. She explains your x-rays and photos, does the cleanings herself, is very gentle but thorough and has a great team in an even better atmosphere. Glad to have finally found my dentist!

Dr Choi and Dr Nam are great professionals. We started our dental care with them three years ago and it has been fantastic. The quality of care and the results have been outstanding. I really recommend them amongst many dentists I have visited in Manhattan. Thanks so much Dr Nam, Choi and the rest of the staff at 57th street.

Amazing experience start to finish. Doctors were calm and explained the process. They worked through possible options and informed us of each one thoroughly. My daughter felt comfortable and really enjoyed the doctors. Front desk staff was pleasant and responsive. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.

Dr. Choi is terrific. In addition to being a truly lovely person, she is exceptionally smart and thorough in her practice. She explained everything in great detail and answered all of my questions – very patiently! The office is beautiful and going there is really a pleasant experience (not always the case with the dentist, right?). I would recommend Dr. Choi to anyone looking to be well taken care of and provided the best information and options for your teeth!

Dr. Choi was amazing. She is so upbeat and positive and made the entire ordeal very easy. Got 4 cavities filled with her and she was the best dentist I’ve probabaly ever had. Very reassuring and explains every step as she goes. Quick,too! Her hours were so flexible and she personally calls and texts all clients and follows up amazingly. Would highly recommend!!!!!!!

The very minute that I walked into Dr. Choi’s office, I was given the warmest of greetings by her and her assistant. The entirety of my visit felt like an event. The office was beautiful, all the materials looked and felt high quality, but most importantly, the hospitality I’ve received from Dr. Choi and her assistant Mo was top notch and made me feel special. For a doctor that offers a wide variety of treatments, I have to say she is really skilled and professional.

Florida transplant that struggled to find a local dentist. Couldn’t be more pleased with the service and overall friendliness of the staff. Angela at the desk is always super polite & friendly and Dr Choi has a way of making you feel like you’re her best friend. They’re all a blast!! Highly recommend. Also they have a “membership program” it covers 2 cleanings a year + gives you 20% any additional services you need. Great deal!

Blad V (Source: Google)


Let me start by saying that meeting Dr. Choi and her assistant Mo was the best thing that could ever have happened to me. At first I was a bit nervous about my dental check up because of past experiences. Dr. Choi its sweet, professional and definitely skilled. The environment is like a spa: relaxing music or something of your choice, peaceful, cozy and her place of work is clean and last but not least her equipments are A1. Right now I’m on a Invisalign treatment and she explained to me step by step on how the treatment will work. Also she help you on finding the best posible way to paid wether you have a health insurance or not and the payments are very affordable. Additionally what I like the most is the flexible hours and we all know how important that is here in NYC and that is something I truly appreciate. Bottom line I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Choi to family, friends and anyone who takes their oral care seriously like I do.


Dr. Choi values knowledge/skills and appreciates the harmonious relationship of art & science. In pursuit of excellence, Dr. Choi has completed additional two years of GPR residencies after graduating from the dental school where she served multiple leaderships. She continuously reads and studies with several renowned dental organizations such as ICOI, AAIP, Spear Education, The Dawson Academy, Dental XP, Invisalign, etc. To give back in a blessed heart, Dr. Choi follows annual dental mission trips to third world countries, and performs hundreds of surgical & non-surgical extractions.
