I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Culotta and the rest of the team at village dental medicine. I came across village dental via zoc doc and am so glad I did! I find the level of care and attention I receive directly from Dr. Culotta to set him apart from any dentist I’ve gone to in the past. He is absolutely lovely and their staff is always friendly and efficient. Super clean and modern office, great hygienists, highly recommend.

The dentist is not a place I enjoy, but after a tooth issue, I had to make a quick appointment to get help. From start to finish, this was the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist. Every staff member was friendly, efficient, competent. The check in was smooth and there was no wait time. When I sat in the chair I expressed that I wanted a low cost solution. Dr Culotta not only got to know me a bit, making me relax, but he also talked me through every step of what he proposed and what that meant in terms of my visit today, and the cost I’d incur. I am anxious with drills and anesthesia, but he made me feel comfortable and I knew I was in good hands. Plus, my teeth are so clean now, I left extremely happy! I highly recommend, and will return myself. Thank you!

Best of the best. Dr Tim Cullotta is the best dentist on the planet. So trustworthy and only looking out for the best interests of the patient always. Staff are all amazingly kind gentle and super qualified. Cannot day enough about this team.

Mark S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Cullotta’s for almost 10 years. This is the best dental practice in all of NYC. The work is second to none. They will never recommend an unnecessary procedure. They are always efficient and friendly and up front about costs. I recommend them to all my friends and family who have all become regular patients as well and love going to Dr. Cullotta at Village Dental Medicine.

I took my brother to see Doctor Elyse Kerschner and she is absolutely amazing! I recommend her to any parent and child. She is kind, patient, fast and gets the job done! Definitely knows how to calm the patient down if needed, get the work done and still make the visit fun and painless! She is an absolute star! My brother now looks forward going to the dentist and cannot wait for the next visit! Thank you doc, you are awesome!

Andrew M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dental practice I’ve ever been to, and the only one I look forward to visiting. Oleg is a very competent and knowledgeable dentist, and patiently answers any of my questions in detail. Divya is an amazing hygienist with very precise but gentle touch and used to be a dentist in her home country. My wife and I have both been coming for years and love it here!

Lisa F. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I just moved to NYC this summer and had to find a new dentist. I found Village Dental Medicine through the listing for my insurance, and I’m so glad I did! Every aspect of this office is top-notch – bright, clean, on-time, and great people. The first time I saw Dr. Oleg, who is friendly, caring, and competent. I was just there for a cleaning/exam, but he went the extra mile to check to see what my insurance covered (and contrast that with the insurance I had coming up for a different job) so that he could advise me on when to have some work done. He was also extra careful to make sure it was a completely painless experience. Lucy, the hygienist, gave me probably the most thorough (yet painless) cleaning I’ve ever had! Last week I went in to get fitted for a nightguard and was seen by Dr. Tim Culotta, who was also terrific. The staff is fantastic, too – they’re so helpful and nice and I feel like they’re always looking out for the patient’s interests (calling me prior to an appointment to let me know whether insurance covers it, etc). I couldn’t be happier that I found this place.

Hands down the best dental practice I have ever been to. I love coming here and never thought I would ever say that about the dentist. I am going through my invisalign treatment here, which has been a great experience. As well as all other dental treatments, check-ups, cleanings etc. Everyone here is just wonderful and can’t recommend them enough to everyone.

I was in NYC on an 11 hour layover and decided to head into the city. While in the Village I develop a horrible pain in my upper jaw/tooth. I googled and found VDM and called them. They took me right in, gave me X-Rays, and fixed me up before my flight out. They were courteous, helpful, and professional. They even emailed me my X-Rays so I could forward them to my Dentist. I highly recommend them!

Vicky W. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


In a panic over Easter weekend in 2014, I searched for the nearest dentist that was open on Sunday for an emergency root canal. I anticipated the worst, given it was a holiday weekend and expected whoever was open to take full advantage of my pain and lack of insurance. I was pleasantly surprised however to find Dr Culotta located a few blocks away and willing to book me. His conservative methods of practice saved me from unnecessary root canal (and saved me major $$$!) and alleviated the pain with just a little medication and careful filling. He calmly talked me through each step of the procedure –which as a former student of medicine, I highly appreciate — and entertained all of my questions with no hesitation. Now fully armed with dental insurance, I have since returned to Dr Culotta several times for check ups and minor dental work but the preventive steps he advised early on have saved me a lot of unnecessary pain and major dental work. This is the first dentist I’ve ever recommended to multiple friends and family; he is also the first dentist I’ve ever sent a Christmas present to because he is just THAT good.

Today was my first visit. I have been looking for a new dentist. My niece has been visiting this office for years. Oleg Goncharov DDS not only filled my tooth(filling came out chewing gum) but also did the cleaning. He treated me with white gloves. I thought I was at a Spa not a dentist office. I’m from New Jersey I rode the Path Train n arrived 20 min later to his office.  It’s worth the ride.

Village Dental and every single employee make it enjoyable “to see the dentist” from receptionists to techs to dentists. Village Dental is the absolute best office I have ever gone to, especially in NYC. Convenient and beautiful office as well. Plus, they never recommend more than what you actually need.

Frida F. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Unfortunately, I had to have a root canal but I am glad that I found this practice, I met all three of the doctors in the practice, each one is highly professional, personable and knowledgeable, the office is very modern, clean and they play very nice music. The staff is great. I highly recommend them!

The most personable dentist office I’ve ever been to! The hygienists and workers at the front desk were all fabulous and helpful. Dr. Culotta was wonderful – he came and spoke to me before my exam which helped break the ice and make me uber comfortable and safe. My cleaning and exam were quick but thorough. Very grateful – I’ll be back!

Rebecca T. (Source: Zocdoc)


I am really terrified of the dentist, I have a huge amount of anxiety about going. I let them know all of that up front, and everyone was super kind and accommodating to make sure I felt at ease during my whole appointment. My hygienist thoroughly explained everything she was doing and why, so I wasn’t guessing what she was doing in my mouth (which is the source of my dentist-related-anxiety), and was very consistent with asking if I needed to take a break and was very understanding of my anxiety. Real talk, I hadn’t been to the dentist for 7 years before going here, and I was ready to have someone tell me that all my teeth were falling out (thankfully not at all the case). Dr. Culotta was really understanding, I didn’t feel judged, he really simply explained to me everything going on with my teeth and I felt really empowered by the whole visit! Booked my next appointment already! If you get super nervous about going to the dentist, go here, they really took away all of that panic for me!

Dr. Culotta is expert and very caring. He stays current in his profession and hires capable, conscientious staff as well. His offices are clean, modern and easily accessible from public transportation. Highly recommend.

Anne C (Source: Zocdoc)


I had a wonderful experience at this dentist office. Dr Culotta was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. The dental hygienists were very professional, and attentive as well. The office was clean, well designed and in a great location. I would feel comfortable recommending this dentist office and Dr Culotta to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Dr. Culatta was amazing. Not only very knowledgeable that really friendly as well! I usually go to a great Dentist in mid town but I thought I cracked a tooth and I wanted someone close by and right away so my friend recommended Dr. Culatta. I was in his chair by the next morning and within an hour everything was fixed and feels great and looks great! I have already recommended a neighbor to him and I will definitely be back and continue going to this office because it is much closer and the quality of work is just as excellent as my former dentist!

This was my first visit to this practice. I was impressed by the professionalism and skill of the entire staff. My comfort was everyone’s first priority. Each procedure was thoroughly and carefully performed. The Dr explained everything to me in great detail and spent a lot of time with me. It is also delightfully decorated adding to the relaxed atmosphere of the practice.

Eric C. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tim Culotta came to be my dentist through multiple personal recommendations. After my first cleaning, I knew why my friends made such a fuss. He’s enthusiastic, easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable about dental health. Dr. Tim was refreshingly honest and forthright with me about what I actually needed for my own dental goals and needs, while keeping cost-effectiveness in mind. He impressed me from the start and has continued to do so with plenty of personal dental maintenance hacks from his own repertoire. At his recommendation, I bought an electric toothbrush, switched toothpastes, invested in whitening strips and changed my habits around dental care. He’s not only my dentist, but my most trusted dental advisor. Which is what I believe a dentist should be. The offices at Village Dental Medicine are immaculate. The staff is really friendly and on point. It’s a good sized crew Dr. Tim has working for him, which inspired confidence for me. I’ve never been kept waiting more than a few minutes in their welcoming waiting area. And the office’s open floor plan creates a light, family atmosphere. The attention to detail and customer care are top notch. I’d highly recommend Village Dental Medicine to anyone. And I do to my friends and family living in NYC.

Robby D. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


This dentist office is so clean and the staff is very friendly. When I walk in, they almost always can greet me by name as the front desk is that prepared for the next appointment. The one time I was mailed for outrageous charges, I called and was immediately reassured I wouldn’t actually be charged anything. When I got the flu and had to cancel my appointment that same day, there was no issue rescheduling me for a week later.

Nell Benjamin  (Source: Facebook)


They are so friendly here and do an amazing job of cleaning and caring for your teeth. Appointments are easy to make and keep track of. The dentists and hygienists truly know what they are doing and it’s great for adults and kids (we bring our daughter here too).

Dr Culotta saved me from an unnecessary root canal that was advised by another dentist. He’s super friendly, helpful, and trustworthy when it comes to advising on dental health and needs. Everyone is nice, and the facilities are great too. There was a miscommunication about an appointment where I was supposed to get a bite guard and a filling, so I had to have appointments three weeks in a row, which was kind of annoying. But still grateful to have found this office.

The best dental office ever. The staff is great and makes you feel like family. The work is high quality and looks good after.I moved to New York from LA five month ago and am always super nervous about trying a new dentist. I was definitely impressed. Friendly, courteous staff, attentive to any concerns – and exceptional service. I will be coming back!

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


Cannot say enough nice things about the staff at this dental office! Needed to find a new dentist after I moved and found Village Dental from ZocDoc. I went in for a cleaning after not getting one after 1.5 years (my own lack of scheduling and then Covid) and had one of the most enjoyable dental experiences I’ve ever had. I have a lot anxiety before going to the dentist and I felt at ease and comfortable for the duration of my visit. Dr. Cullota was so personable and kind, the hygienist, Druthi, was thorough, gentle, and checked on me every few minutes during the cleaning to make sure I was ok. The dental assistant, did not catch her name, who did my x-rays was also so sweet and attentive!. Post x-rays, Dr. Cullota went over them on the screen, explaining what everything on the films was, which I’ve never experienced at a dentist before. Genuinely looking forward to my next cleaning in 6 months!

Hannah C. from R. Portland, ME (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Culotta. I found him on ZocDoc a few years ago and picked him out of the bunch because his office was close to mine. I didn’t realize at the time what a lucky pick that was! Dr. Culotta always does a really thorough job, it’s painless, and my teeth have never felt so squeaky clean. Plus, he’s just a really nice guy. I don’t know if you’re really supposed to look forward to seeing a dentist, but that’s how it is with Dr. Culotta – like catching up with an old friend. Everyone who works at Village Dental Medicine is super friendly and the office, which is brand new and beautiful inside, is conveniently located. I moved to San Francisco shortly after my first visit with Dr. Culotta a few years ago, but I come back to NYC on business often so he’s the only dentist I see. People think it’s crazy that I live in California and my dentist is in NYC…but he’s just that good, people! I recommend Timothy Culotta DDS to everyone I know in NYC – lots of times even if they’re not looking for a new dentist!

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


I’ve been seeing Dr. Culotta for 4 years now (since before his office moved to the present location), and am very pleased with his service and knowledge, as well as the facilities. The rooms are spotless and the equipment is new, and I know I can trust him to give me good, honest advice. Before seeing him, I had seen a dentist who claimed she had found SIX cavities and was insisting I book fillings for them as quickly as possible. When I went to Dr. Culotta for a second opinion, he took his own x-rays and patiently reviewed them with me to demonstrate that there were no cavities to fill. A good dentist is hard to find in this city, but I’m in good hands with Dr. Culotta. Highly recommend him.

Jeff M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Culotta. His conservative treatment philosophy saved me from a root canal, and for that I am forever grateful: My old dentist in LA filled a few cavities 3 months ago and one of them was really bothering me so I had to find a dentist in NYC. I was told that if this particular filling became sensitive or painful that I would need root canal therapy because the filling was placed so close to the root of my tooth. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Culotta for a root canal, but when I went in to his office he advised me that he should be able to fix the problem without such drastic measures. He told me that it is best to use the most conservative measures first to avoid unnecessary trauma to the tooth. On our first appointment he filed down the filling a little bit to see if that would reduce pressure on my nerve. One week later I returned because the tooth was still hurting. His next step was to replace the filling with a medicated filling that would help reduce pain. He put a temporary filling in and my tooth felt much better right away. I was able to chew on the right side of my mouth for the first time in months. Two weeks later (today) I returned to have a permanent filling put into the tooth. The problem was solved, and without the need for root canal therapy. Even though this required three separate visits and more work than an ordinary filling, Dr. Culotta only charged me for an appointment for one filling! I will definitely be returning here for my future dental work. [Dr. Culotta also identified some decay under another filling from the x-rays that my previous dentist had not noticed. He also treated that tooth.] Pretty much the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Thanks, Village Dental

I had such a pleasant experience at this office! The front desk is friendly and helpful and the office itself is beautiful. They made sure everything was covered by my insurance before they went ahead and did anything. The doctor was very friendly, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. He gave me very sound advice which I appreciated. He found a small cavity and filled it in 10 minutes at the same appointment! The only thing I didn’t enjoy was my interaction with the dental hygienist. I have a very very small gap between my front two teeth that I barely even notice but she asked “aren’t you bothered by the gap between your front teeth? We can fix that” as if it SHOULD be something that I don’t like about my smile. I told her it didn’t bother me but she kept mentioning invisiline. I am so happy I’ve found a dentist in the city! I’ll definitely be coming back!

Went here for my 6-month cleaning based on recommendation from my husband. He raves about how clean his teeth feel and how well they do a great job. I’m glad I finally listened. Village Dental is a clean, modern space with attentive front desk personnel, professional hygienist, warm and knowledgeable dentist. Little things make a difference considering we have so many options for dentists nowadays. For example, they have a charger in the waiting area. They also give you a goodie bag (perfect for travel size) when you’re finished packed with a full legitimate oral b toothbrush (not the crappy, disposable kind you get from hotels) , mouthwash, toothpaste and dental floss. Also, my lips tend to dry up during cleaning regardless of how much Vaseline I put on it before the appointment. The dental hygienist offered to put more in my lips as she was cleaning my teeth. Now that’s what I call service! Will definitely stick to this place for my twice yearly cleaning.

This was the best cleaning I’ve ever had. The hygienist was great at explaining things and was thorough and expert. Dr. Culotta was lovely and also thorough and somehow the visit there gave me a whole different perspective on how dental health connects to your general health. The office is conveniently located and they were great about sending reminders and answering questions. I had no wait at all. Very convenient and it was a relief to have my teeth feeling so clean.

Quianna T (Source: Zocdoc)


Very professional and friendly. Lovely office staff and clean environment. The doctor is a very caring person and even wanted to see my husband (who did not have an appointment) due to tooth problems I explained to the doctor. Cares about his patients and it shows.

Emily Krasner Zirlin (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Culotta is the kindest and most comforting person – not to mention a super smart and masterful dentist. The entire staff is just as wonderful – I genuinely feel that they care about every individual patient, and take the time to get to know you and to make sure you are comfortable. (I have recommended Village Dental to so many coworkers that sometimes random staff members will appear at my desk and say “ told me that you love your dentist. Can I have their info?”) Wholeheartedly recommend!

Nicole Geraghty (Source: Google)


I typically dread going to the dentist and that hasn’t quite changed but this was the best possible experience I could have had. Dr. Culotta is awesome! I was seen promptly and Dr. Culotta really took the time to explain my dental health and I felt comfortable asking questions. If you’re looking for a dentist don’t hesitate, this is a great practice!

Suzanne F. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Culotta was so personable and kind. It makes a big difference when a dentist makes an effort to get know their patience. The rest of the staff was equally kind and professional. My cleaning was spectacular — both thorough and pain-free. All of my questions were answered and I never felt rushed.
