StarStarStarStarStar My smile feels new. —    (Patient since Wed Apr 19 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

My smile feels new. Thanks so much for a great first visit. I'm so glad I came. I value how thorough the intake was, and the cleaning. Look forward to seeing you again soon.


StarStarStarStarStar Exceptional experience  —    (Patient since Wed Oct 15 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

Unlike many other medical appointments, consistently at Dr. Giordano's: 1) they're on-time; 2) there's no "rushing" through the cleaning or examination; 3) any questions I have are fully addressed. I understand there are many lesser qualified dentists out there, and I have 100% confidence of the care received through DG Dental! Thank you!


StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since Thu Apr 06 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

My initial visit to your establishment was better than I had expected. I was delayed, caused by traffic, and when I called, I was reassured and relieved that it was ok. When I arrived, I was pleasantly greeted by Kayle. She was pleasant, had a cheerful smile and with a professional demeanor. After my visit, I was given instructions on care and she followed thru with what had been discussed (before I even got home). I look forward to seeing my doctor ( she's great & thorough) and have already recommended 2 friends there for treatment. A '10'


StarStarStarStarStar very good! —    (Patient since Wed Feb 22 00:00:00 MST 2017)

Dr. Giordano is a Master. He knows and wants the best for his patients, an is very friendly. I felt very comfortable with him.


StarStarStarStarStar All Good! —    (Patient since Fri Mar 31 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

I was very happy with my first visit to Dr. Giordano’s office. I was greeted warmly, my cleaning was though, and Dr. Giordano said all was fine. Phew! A little nerve wracking to go to a new dentist after twenty years - but altogether a happy experience.

Dr. Giordano has a fantastic office nestled in the heart of Hell's Kitchen - just steps from the ACE and 123 lines. Clean, comfortable, friendly and quick. A great experience and no pushy upsells.

StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since Wed Dec 07 00:00:00 MST 2011)

Dr. Giordano is the best in the city, in my opinion. He corrected a broken front tooth with a bonding that has lasted for 5 years now and it looks perfect. I have recommended him to friends and everyone has been happy with his care and their results.

StarStarStarStarStar Dominic Giordano and his team are outstanding. Truly among NYC's best. —    (Patient since Wed Jun 01 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

Dominic Giordano and his team are outstanding. Dr. Giordano has been my dentist for over 20 years and I can't imagine going to anyone else. He is in no way a "hard sell" type of dentist, so I trust him completely. If he tells me I need a pricey procedure done, I am 100% confident that I in fact need it done, and that his practice is not merely trying to gouge me or my insurer. As important, he knows what he is doing -- far more than dentists I've seen since I was a kid. He has had to correct improper or sloppy dental work done in the past by less experienced or reputable.

Best dentist ever. The office was clean and sophisticated. It was quiet (as it can be for a dental office). I was treated respectfully and seen right away. The visit was as about as pleasant as a dental visit could be, and I was treated carefully. Really glad to have found this dentist.

I found DG near my office when we moved uptown in NYC. The absolute best dental care I've ever had. Expert, friendly and modern. I've since referred co-workers who have had the same experience

I am a VERY nervous dental patient, and Dr. Giordano and his staff have gone above and beyond to make every visit a comfortable and inviting one.

I was made to feel comfortable, as soon as I walked in. After working with my previous dentist for almost 20 years, I was not looking forward to starting over with someone new, but I'm very happy with my decision to go to your office.

Fantastic service, no complaints.


StarStarStarStarStar Great experience w/a great staff  —    (Patient since Fri Oct 09 00:00:00 MDT 2015)

My overall experience was great. From the initial call to make my appointment, to check-in and comprehensive exam, the experience was first class. The staff are engaging and professional. Dr Giordano is personable, speaks clearly and without any of tr typical NYC dental "up charging." He is refreshing to have as my dentist.


StarStarStarStarStar The hygienist was more than thorough with me —    (Patient since Wed Sep 23 00:00:00 MDT 2015)

The hygienist was more than thorough with me. She was detail-oriented and just didn't give me the standard polish most hygienist do. Dr. Giordano clearly explained my options and the outcomes of each one with regard to my dental issue. He was straightforward, knowledgeable and didn't come off as a salesman. He struck me as a professional.


StarStarStarStarStar First time, will return for many more —    (Patient since Fri Aug 28 00:00:00 MDT 2015)

The staff were friendly, helpful and explained every step of my teeth evaluation. We set up regular visits and also had a really professional and clean approach.

Dom was amazing and gracious, coming into the office after a day at work out of state, assessing and explaining the situation quickly and coherently, making a rec and an i tro call to an oral surgeon. I was and am very grateful and would certainly recommend him to others.

I have never met a great doctor like Dr. Giordano. Before I met him, I never smiled with my mouth open because my teeth was horrible. Now I have white & straight teeth to show off! Thank you, Dr. Giordano!

StarStarStarStarStar Best in NYC —    (Patient since Wed Jun 01 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

Dom Giordano has been my dentist since moving to NY 20 years ago. He is on top of his game, 100% trustworthy and always has a small but friendly and professional staff. Other dentists would be wise to study Dr. Giordano's model.


StarStarStarStarStar Everyone in the office is always friendly, remembers my name and listens to my concerns —    (Patient since Fri Sep 19 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

Everyone in the office is always friendly, remembers my name and listens to my concerns. Dr Giordano also has an incredible memory when it comes to his patients and it's really nice and relaxing to have a conversation with him before the procedure.


StarStarStarStarStar This was by far the best experience I have had a dentist. I was made to feel comfortable and safe —    (Patient since Wed Apr 01 00:00:00 MDT 2015)

This was by far the best experience I have had a dentist. I was made to feel comfortable and safe. I look forward to returning for my future dental appointments.


StarStarStarStarStar The Best Dentist —    (Patient since Fri Apr 13 00:00:00 MDT 2012)

Dominick Giordano is the best dentist I have ever had and I am not 20 years old. The dental hygienist, Erika is also excellent as is the office staff.


StarStarStarStarStar Best of the best —    (Patient since Fri Feb 04 00:00:00 MST 2011)

Best dentist in all of New York. Attentive, meticulous, smart, kind. The whole experience is always wonderful. Dominick always makes me feel like I am in good hands and safe. And his team is amazing.

I was upset that I had specifically spoken to the office about retrieval of dental records and yes, I made the call, but I expected you to follow up the day of the visit to say that they had not arrived. We nearly had a "disaster" since I mentioned the fact that my crown had been removed in root canal work. That would not have happened if effective transfer of records had occurred. And I kind of shocked that I spent only about 45 minutes in the chair for some straightforward dental work that ending up costing nearly $600. That is outrageous and I think out of "scale" for what was done. Sorry, I like the doctor a lot, but based on the cost/benefit it is hard for me to feel happy about what happened yesterday.


StarStarStarStarNo Star superb service all around! —    (Patient since Fri Mar 23 00:00:00 MDT 2012)

superb service all around!


StarStarStarStarStar A great way to see the dentist. Also a friendly well designed office, a treat —    (Patient since Fri Oct 24 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

A great way to see the dentist. Also a friendly well designed office, a treat. See ya in six months.


StarStarStarStarStar Would see no one else! —    (Patient since Fri Jun 11 00:00:00 MDT 2010)

I've been seeing Dr. Giordano for many years and the team he's built around him today is amazing. I've been in and out of dentist and orthodonist offices throughout my whole life and D. Giordano is hands down the best. Not only is he the most capable, his office is warm and I am always informed of my treatment at every step of the way.


StarStarStarStarStar Don't change a thing. As always, my visit was great. —    (Patient since Fri Jul 16 00:00:00 MDT 2010)

Good medical professionals are so hard to find. Dr. Giordano and his staff at DG Dental are the best of the best!

It's always great to see Dr. Giordano and his wonderful staff. They make going to the dentist an easy experience!


StarStarStarStarStar This was my first time at Dr. Giordano's new office — 

This was my first time at Dr. Giordano's new office. I love the area - it's easily accessible by train or vehicle. Alex his receptionist is a gem. His dental assistant (sorry I forgot his name) was very nice too. After a long time of not having the luxury of regular dental visits, I can't state how happy I am to be back in the hands of Dr. Giordano. Manhattan is a very big city with thousands of options. I trust no one else.


StarStarStarStarStar Never had a bad experience with you guys  —    (Patient since Fri May 13 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

Always the best of service ! Even a root canal is a walk in the park

I'm a very satisfied patient and happy to have switched to this practice.


StarStarStarStarStar Great experience —    (Patient since Wed Aug 06 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

The hygienist was really nice and easy to talk to. She made me feel comfortable and I forgot that my teeth were being cleaned. I left with a greater understanding of what I can do to improve my oral health, rather than a general "floss more". I know what to focus more on, which is very helpful.


StarStarStarStarStar Outstanding Dentist and Great Team —    (Patient since Wed Jun 15 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

I have never been happier with the level of service and care I have received from a dentist. Where I once feared going to a dental office, I now look forward to the care and attention Dr. Giordano and his team provide. Best of all my teeth have never been healthier nor my smile brighter!


StarStarStarStarStar above and beyond —    (Patient since Fri Jun 27 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

I was made to feel welcome and at ease from beginning to end. Staff went above and beyond to accommodate my scheduling difficulties with an up coming move. Thank you.


StarStarStarStarStar Best Dental care and staff in town —    (Patient since Wed May 11 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

I have worked in different area of Manhattan and so i preferred to always find a nearby dentist. DG Dental is the best care i have ever experienced. Modern equipment , east to talk to, professional as all get out. Glad i found them so close to my office near Times Square.

No worries about the delay. I understand that there were multiple problems that day. I felt as well cared for as ever. Thought Marina's replacement was especially skillful.

This is the best dentist you can find in New York. Professional, meticulous, courteous, fun, with an amazing staff... It makes you want to go to the dentist, which, as we all know, is a rare find...

The most pleasurable dental experience I've ever had. This is why I continue to come back and tell my friends and family about Dr.Gio.


StarStarStarStarStar The staff at DG are great. When my office moved uptown I discovered DG right down the street —    (Patient since Wed May 11 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

The staff at DG are great. When my office moved uptown I discovered DG right down the street. It's probably the best dental care I have ever had. In addition they are very modern with confirmations via text and Pandora playing in the office.


StarStarStarStarNo Star My only complaint was the wait time —    (Patient since Fri Sep 19 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

My only complaint was the wait time. I have a tight schedule during the day as I can only take a limited amount of time from the office. Having to wait a half hour to be seated was inconvenient, but the procedure was performed quickly. I also understand that when one patient arrives late it can be very difficult to stay on schedule.


StarStarStarStarStar A+ experience —    (Patient since Fri Jun 17 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

Thoughts: Dr. G is a thorough dentist with an excellent bedside manner. His office is super clean, smells nice and has a sexy downtown feel, with midtown convenience. You can't dream of much more in a dental visit.


StarStarStarStarStar Very good & was referred by Mary & Linda Rodgers origianally —    (Patient since Wed Nov 13 00:00:00 MST 2013)

Very good & was referred by goodfriends Mary & Linda Rodgers originally


StarStarStarStarStar Professional and Relaxed —    (Patient since Fri Oct 14 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

Dentist's visits are not what's the most in fun in life, but having this chore with Dominick and his team makes it kind of enjoyable. A wonderful team and a gentle treatment. State of the art "workshop" - nothing to complain.

StarStarStarStarStar Cleaning —    (Patient since Fri May 21 00:00:00 MDT 2010)

I prefer to have my cleanings done by Dom, but understand he was busy with a surgery the day I was there. The tech was great and did a great job, but I still prefer Dom's attention to detail when it comes to cleanings.
