I feel excited that I finally I have a dentist that I can feel comfortable going to! Dr. SPA and her team are welcoming, engaging, friendly, and professional. I especially appreciate how she takes time the next day to follow up with you and your progress to see how you are progressing. I appreciate all the work the team puts in to creat a pleasant experience at the dentist, which I didn’t previously thing was possible. Thank you SPA Dental.

Had a wonderful experience with Dr. SPA. I came in for teeth whitening before my wedding. She took the time to explain everything step by step. Once I got in the chair, I mentioned some tooth sensitivity, which she was happy to check out and which turned out to be a gum issue instead. Instead of pushing drastic dental options on me, she told me about the simpler at home fix to try first. My teeth whitening was a breeze. The tech/assistant stayed with me after Dr. SPA did the first and second application to make sure I didn’t experience any pain or issues. Great staff and impeccable office space. The goodie bag at the end was a great touch as well – would highly recommend this office for an elevated dental experience!

My visit to SpaDental was refreshingly calm and pretty seamless. It is a brand new office with a very zen feel (not sterile or old-school doctor’s office). The staff was very friendly, and although they were still being trained and at times did not know exactly what to do, my experience was still very positive. Dr. Shebani Pahwa Arora was very good at giving directions to the staff and very thorough, detail oriented, and listened to what I was telling her about my dental history. Her bedside manner was top notch and she was very gentle in her approach. Her work on my 2 teeth seem to be perfect so far! She also explained what she was doing and why she was doing it, and told me about my options. As the office works out the minor kinks of opening a new business, I anticipate my experiences will get even better!

I wish I had found Dr. Shebani Pawha sooner, her office feels like a spa and herself/her team are all so nice and communicative about the procedures. I had been told elsewhere I would need 2 root canals and a couple of other expensive procedures and Dr. Pawha talked me through my x-rays and told me that that was not the case, so always get a second opinion! I’m very glad that I came here and even more glad I didn’t have a bunch of unnecessary work done previously

Exceptional service and attention to detail. Patient education clearly seems to be a priority as the Doctor and the Assitant both took ample time to go over the specifics of my dental needs. Wish I knew about this dental office before. Will definitely recommend this office to all my coworkers and friends!!

I am paranoid when it comes to the dentist but Dr. Arora put me at ease, educated me on my current state and provided me with options for oral health. I have several appointment still scheduled with her and feel confident that all my needs will be met. I’m definitely going to refer my friends and family to her.

Let me be clear: this is by far the BEST dentist experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Spa and her team were professional, friendly, and perfectly conversational. From start to finish, I felt comfortable and taken care of — just as if they knew me personally! This was due mostly to Dr. Spa, who took the time to briefly get to know me before working on my teeth. Further, she also consistently checked in on me during the cleaning, making sure everything was good on my end. Finally, whenever she delivered news or treatment options, she did so with respect to my time and budget. It was this professionalism paired with empathy that made this experience unlike any other. Also, just on a superficial level, the office felt luxurious, clean, and state-of-the-art. The classic music in the background, everything from Etta James to Frank Sinatra, was the perfect soundtrack to an otherwise phenomenal experience! Can’t wait to come back!

Love Spa dental group! I only have great things to say about the office. The entire staff made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. Dr SPA and Dr Vu are both two of the best dentists and I trust them both 100% with the work I need. I highly recommend SPA dental group and will be sending everyone I know to them! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Enter SPA Dental Group and you’re greeted with a calming atmosphere filled with soulful tunes and greeted warmly by their front staff. There is barely a wait, and before you know it you’re immediately seated and ready to meet Dr.SPA. This office surpasses all the other offices I’ve been to on every level. All the equipment is state of the art and up-to-date. Dr.SPA walks you through the entire appointment, takes her time with you, carefully reviews your x-ray images with you and gives great suggestions on improving your oral health among any concerns she has. Throughout the procedure, Dr.SPA and her assistant kindly check on you to make sure you’re ok. At the end of the appointment Dr.SPA reviews the plan for your treatment and lays out your options along with transparent pricing. She’s very knowledgeable, sweet and super down to earth you’ll think you’re catching up with an old friend–who’s cleaning your teeth!

Dr. SPA is very upfront about costs. Her staff looks at your insurance coverage and let’s you know exactly what you will pay and what your insurance will pay. I appreciate this, and it is refreshing compared to my previous dentist where I just got bills with no explanations. Dr. SPA also treats her employees and patients respectfully.

Dr. Spa and her team are amazing. It’s not often that I’ll talk about my dentist to my friends, but my girlfriend and I both raved about her and her practice to our friends after our first appointment. The office is clean, appealing, and relaxing. The dental assistants and the receptionists are very friendly, and Dr. Spa is friendly, professional, and understanding. Definitely she will be my go-to for as long as I live in the area.

Amazing! I cannot express how pleased I am with the service. Doctor SPA and VU are amazing to work with and gentle with their hands! They also took their time to explain everything to me in great detail and answered all my questions and concerns. Overall, a beautiful office and incredible staff!

Dr. Spa was incredibly knowledgeable and professional. She took great care throughout the entire process and was extremely attentive. She was happy to answer any and all questions, and provided explanation for every step. She broke down cost openly. I would highly recommend Dr. Spa to anyone.

This was my first visit. There was an unfortunate technical glitch with the water not working for the mouth irrigation during the cleaning, but they were very professional and found a workaround and I was still finished in under an hour. I will definitely go back.

Great 1st appointment. I felt comfortable and informed about my dental health. I came for a cleaning and preventive care. The office is very clean and modern, I was offered water upon entering the establishment. Dr. SPA took the time to explain the exam and cleaning, she explained the rating system used to determine the health of teeth and gums. She prescribed a follow up appointment for some trouble areas. She went over the insurance billing and costs for treatment. I really enjoyed having a dentist clean my teeth at my appointment and not to be only treated by a hygienist. A hygienist was used for polishing. The appointment was quick and painless. I highly recommend this dentist as she is thorough.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Pahwa. I filled out some information on ZocDoc and they were courteous enough to copy over much of the information into their system, which saved me a ton of time on paperwork. Much appreciated! Dr. Pahwa really focused on teaching as she worked through the appointment. She made sure I understood what I was looking at, and ways to improve my health. I also appreciate how transparent and upfront they are about costs – she actually checked with my insurance company to get a quote for additional services before I left the office! I’m so happy I found this practice!

She was amazing. All of her staff was super friendly and made me feel very comfortable. I was dreading my visit to a new dentist but she really made the experience a pleasant one. The office is beautiful and intentionally designed to help patients feel more comfortable and it worked! I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Going to the dentist is rarely something to look forward to, but my experience at SPA Dental was nothing short of exceptional! Their staff made scheduling an appointment and taking care of any/all paperwork, billing, etc. as effortless and painless as could be. The office was very modern with all the appropriate equipment to complete my procedure seamlessly, and Dr. SPA along with the dental hygienist took extra care to transparently explain exactly what was going on, the reasoning behind it, and made the effort to ensure I was comfortable throughout. Will absolutely be returning as a patient!

This is the best dental office I’ve been to in years and I will be sure to come back regularly. Not only is the building and waiting rooms very luxurious but the staff is just so friendly and welcoming. I was given a full run down of my treatment plan (wisdom teeth removal and several cavities) and she even optimized the treatment plan to work best with my annual benefit limit and save me the most money. Can’t recommend this office and dentist enough!

Hashim A. (Source: Zocdoc)


Amazing in every way! After scheduling my appointment, I was feeling super anxious, but after meeting everyone and finishing up my first appointment, I felt so light and happy I chose spa dental. Everyone is extremely friendly, gentle, and great at what they do. I love that they were up front about costs from the very beginning which made it even easier to relax. This is a 5 star establishment with 5 star staff and I would recommend them anyone. Thank you for going out of your way to answer all of my questions. Thank you for making sure I was comfortable and pain free, and thank you for doing your work with such joy and care. I’ve already scheduled my next appointment and I’m really looking forward to it. You guys are the best!

Everyone in the office was very professional and friendly. I was seen right away and the appointment moved quickly. Dr. Arora answered all of my questions and tailored the appointment to meet my needs. The only critique is that the cleaning (done by the dental hygienist) didn’t seem very thorough.

Just moved to the NYC tri-state area and I love this dental office. I had an amazing experience with their other office and the NYC office exceeded all my expectations!!!! They are thorough, clear, concise, and totally upfront about all costs. I have never felt more comfortable in a dental chair. If you live in New York City, you need to go here!!!!!!!

Dr. SPA is the first dentist that took the time to talk me through my personal dental health. My entire visit felt extremely personalized and I did not feel like just another patient on his list of people to see for the day. Her practice has a very holistic approach and a strong emphasis on preventative health. She took the time to tell me which of my teeth could develop cavities and talked to me about preventative methods conducive specifically to my lifestyle and health habits. She is also the first dentist to ever go over my x-rays and show me areas of concern in a way that was easy for me to comprehend. Her hands are super gentle and she’s very cognizant of giving you a chance to relax your jaw during lengthy procedures. Her staff members from front desk to hygienists are super sweet and friendly. I also appreciated the beautiful and clean dental office, especially because all her machines are up-to-date/high tech. I will definitely be following up with her practice for all my future dental care. I highly recommend!

Fantastic experience at Spa dental from the moment I arrived until the time I left. Both front desk receptionists were welcoming and pleasant and actually felt like I was in a Spa. Dr. Arora was extremely caring and professional, but I loved most how she explained in detail to me what dental work needed to be done on a level I could comprehend. I would highly recommend Dr. Arora if you are looking for a great dentist in Manhattan!

Dr. SPA (Shebani) was an absolute pleasure to visit! Her front desk staff members were extremely welcoming and created a very inclusive atmosphere. They sent me paperwork ahead of time so I could have my insurance approved prior to arriving, which was really helpful. I was seen as soon as my appointment started and the overall process was pleasant and efficient. My cleaning was easy and she gave me all the information I needed! She also has late afternoon availability, which is really helpful for someone who works full time. Highly recommend!!

The entire staff made me feel comfortable and at ease the moment I walked in… though I was still anxious and afraid, I knew I was in good hands after their reassurance and constant communication on what was happening. My initial idea was to visit here then get a second opinion elsewhere and go with who I felt comfortable with since I’m terrified of dentists. I have decided there’s no need to go elsewhere and Dr. Arora can never ever go anywhere else… she’s the only one I ever want to care for my dental hygiene going forward.

The aesthetic of the office is very chic, new, and inviting. Everyone was courteous and welcoming. Beforehand, we worked to get the pre-authorization and my paperwork uploaded via email, so there wasn’t anything to fill out in the office. The dentist went over the xrays with me on the large screen in the exam room. She was patient and answered questions well. Seems like the dentist and assistant had a good working relationship as well.

I had an excellent first experience at this office. The staff is wonderful and Dr. Pahwa Arora was very friendly, efficient and thorough. As someone who usually doesn’t enjoy going to the dentist, I can say now that I had a comforting experience and I highly recommend seeing her.

Anne F. (Source: Zocdoc)


This was my first visit and it was excellent! The front desk staff were very friendly and quick to get me checked in. The practice is beautiful; it isn’t decorated like your standard place but I really liked it. Dr. Spa was fantastic in her bedside manner, explanation of exam and of payment. I have bad dental anxiety and they made everything so much better. Highly recommend!

Crystal Z. (Source: Zocdoc)


Great experience. Everyone in the office was very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Spa herself is very nice and also very informative. What I especially appreciated about her that I haven’t gotten in other dental offices I’ve been to is her clarity on services, options, and pricing. I highly recommend her and the office!

Danielle L. (Source: Zocdoc)


My first time visiting the office was great! The office is cozy and feels more like a spa than a traditional dentist office. Although I did a routine examine and cleaning, the doctor explained each part of the process more than any dentist I’d visited in the past. The doctor, reception person and dental assistant were also very pleasant. I haven’t always found offices where the entire staff was kind so this was a pleasant surprise.

Overall great experience. Dr. SPA is the first doctor I have met who sits and talks with the patients prior to proceeding with the X-rays! Really appreciate the time she takes to explain the details of my treatment plan and how it can be completed to maximize my insurance benefits.

Dr. Shebani explained things at the level I needed to feel like I was making the right decisions. She was incredibly nice to me and her staff (who were also very nice). No pain whatsoever. It was my first dentist appointment in awhile and my first appointment with her, but I left feeling like I could trust her and she cared about my teeth. A+ !
