I tried to make the apporintment but the receptionist was very unprofessional and unfriendly. I decided to go to the other dentist.

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/26/2013

I find Dr. Zelig and his staff to be highly professional, punctual and painless. Nay, if I could, I'd invite my friends to meet at Smile in the City on some Friday night to get anesthetized and have our teeth done together! The most invasive procedures one can imagine are done very quickly, with absolutely no pain (Dr. Zelig has a unique 3-step process to assure this), pleasant music, and a calming demeanor such that when it's over, I think, ""Wow, I could do that all over again if I had to...and maybe even if I didn't."" more

Great service and results 5/9/2012

I went to Dr. Zelig at Smile in the City for a dental procedure and I must say from the service to the actual results of my procedure I am more than satisfied. They create a calming and wonderful environment for the patient. The results were great and I highly recommend their services to anyone for regular dental work to cosmetic procedures. more

AMAZING!!!! 9/23/2011

I NEVER!!! give a thumbs up to any dentist but this place is AMAZING!!!! No one is more afraid of the dentist than me but I was so relaxed and comfortable with them that I let them remove a tooth will I was AWAKE!!!! anyone that knows me, knows, this is unheard of. I'm the type to run or start swinging. Joseph Zelig, D.D.S., Nargiz Schmidt, D.D.S and staff are VERY!!!! professional, courteous, friendly and they will NOT!!!! judge you. The bad news, they come with a heavy price tag but you get top of the line treatment. As the saying goes, ""You get what you pay for"" more

Above and Beyond 8/18/2011

I usually hate going to the dentist, but when I arrived at Smile in the City I was immediately greeted by three of the nicest dental assistants/receptionists you could ask for. Katie, Danielle, and Melissa were very friendly and extremely personable. \r \r The above and beyond dental experience continued as Dr. Leva met me with a great personality and gave me a thorough and painless (unlike usual) dental exam. Dr. Leva was able to notice and fix a few other problems that resulted from previous dentists I had gone to, including an old filling and a root canal that was not properly capped.\r \r Overall, I was more than pleased with Dr. Leva, his assistants (Katie, Danielle, and Melissa), as well as the facilities at Smile in the City. I will undoubtedly continue to use Dr. Leva and Smile in the City as my dental practice of choice. more

Gum graft with no pain. 4/15/2011

I needed a gum graft on two teeth. I am from Brooklyn, and my regular dentist recommended a periodontist in Brooklyn. I went there to have a graft done for one of my teeth. I had a bad experience: The doctor had no bedside manner. And he worked at breakneck speed, causing me great discomfort. I vowed to not go back there. But the problem was I needed a second gum graft for my other tooth. I looked online, and found that Smile in the City had amazing reviews. I decided to give them a try. What a difference! I went in for a consultation, and everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr. Zelig talked with me about my tooth, and explained exactly what he was going to do for my procedure. He explained to me that he was NOT going to carve skin from the top of my mouth for the graft (what a relief, as that was the worst part of my other procedure). He was going to take it from a different area that would not be as painful. He also told me he would use a laser, which would cause less discomfort. The procedure went great! Dr. Zelig was gentle, and kept me informed of his progress as he worked. My recovery time was much quicker than my previous procedure, and the fact that he did not cut into the roof of my mouth made eating after the procedure so much easier. I would definitely recommend Smile in the City. more

Thanks for giving me back my smile! 7/14/2009

I am not the type of person who writes reviews, but I am so grateful to Dr. Schmidt for helping me smile again. I've always had a terrible fear of dentists, and as a result, I neglected my teeth. I am a successful person, but knowing that my mouth was in horrible condition was like a heavy weight on my mind and interfered with my quality of life. I found Dr. schmidt through the recommendation of a colleague, so I went for a consultation. The office is beautiful and clean. The staff is friendly and efficient. My treatment consisted of several implants and many crowns, but the effect it has had on my life is beyond words. I consider Dr. Schmidt to be a friend but I also have a tremendous amount of respect for her professionalism and ability to change lives. Thank You Dr. Schmidt,\r Jeffrey R. \r \r Pros: everything! more

Great Dentists 2/8/2009

I have been a patient of Dr. Schmidt for about 2 years and have had extensive work done (veneers, crowns, implants). Dr. Schmidt's superior level of knowledge, technical excellence and artistic sense has given me the kind of results I could have only wished for- very natural-looking smile and never-ending compliments from people. Her attention to details, care and concern for my well being were outstanding. Superb service. Modern and spotless office. Highly recommended. Pros: Ambience, service, skill more

Greatest Dental Experience 2/1/2009

Dr. Z is one of a kind!! & his office is made up of some of the most caring & gentle people I have come to know whilst being in NYC. I am from South Africa, but living in NYC as a model. Until meeting him and his colleagues, I had always avoided going to the dentist, as I HAD a terrible fear, which began as a child. I never faced it, until on a flight back to the states after a job, I felt my tooth start to ache so badly, I knew I had to see one, so when I got back I googled Dentist that do I.V sedation in NYC, as I knew this would be the only way I would have a procedure. After reading many testimonials, viewing the website & seeing pictures of his office, I could tell it offered a calming ambience & didn't come across as a cold dentistry office. I called to make an appointment. On the day of it everyone was so kind & could tell I was so nervous so spoke to me in such a way that it lifted my spirits and made me relax. It turned out I needed a root canal. Dr Z. kept his promise to me and never began anything till I was completely relaxed, he gave me beautiful calming music to listen to & then the I.V sedation. I never felt a thing! :) I was amazed, and NO swelling the next day!!! He is the BEST!! :) Pros: highly professional and relaxing Cons: not the cheapest in town, but very high quality dentistry more

The Best Dentist 11/7/2008

Dr. Zelig did 2 implants in order to create a 3-tooth bridge. I was a little nervous about the procedure and he put me at ease saying that it ""was a piece of cake"". Well, it was better than a piece of cake -- now I can chew anything on it, and not worry about breaking a tooth. They are stronger than your regular teeth. First of all, there was absolutely no pain involved in placing the implants, my face never swelled, I never became black and blue -- I just carried on right after and even went back to work. Dr. Zelig is the sweetest, most caring dentist you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. If you need implants -- DR. ZELIG IS THE ONE TO SEE!!!! Dr. Zelig and Dr. Schmidt work so well together -- Dr. Zelig places the implant, then Dr. Schmidt builds a tooth or bridge on top of it -- all of this in the same office -- It's very convenient. If you're like me - and are apprehensive about having implants -- there's nothing to fear -- they feel perfectly natural and are very strong. Try Drs. Zelig and Schmidt at Smile in the City -- even for a consultatation and you'll understand why I feel so strongly about my review. Pros: everything more

Excellent dentists, great customer service 10/25/2008

I have recently had several lumineers placed by Dr. Schmidt. The results are fantastic. Dr. Schmidt is a perfectionist and clearly very skilled. I also had a laser cleaning and basic check-up. I was impressed with the friendly environment and state-of-the-art equipment. I strongly recommend Smile in the City. Pros: Friendly, high level dentistry more

Wonderful experience....especially with IV sedation! 9/16/2008

I have always been terrified of dentists so I simply let my mouth and teeth get out-of-hand. Finally, I realized that my teeth problems were interfering with my quality of life and I knew it was time to finally take care of my teeth. I carefully researched various dentists in NY and chose to come to Smile in the City because of their specialty training and credentials. I also knew that if I was to survive, I needed to be sedated for the procedures. Now, my extensive treatment is complete. I no longer fear going to the dentist and my self-esteem had improved along with the appearance of my smile. I regret waiting this long, but I am so happy that I came here. Pros: IV Sedation, relaxing environment, excellent dentistry Cons: The cost is not cheap, but their financing plan made it affordable. more

If I have to go to a dentist, then this is the only one I would go too 8/3/2008

I have survived 31 years of life without any cavities. So after beating cancer, I wasn't prepared for the chemotherapy to do a number on my teeth and cause quite a few cavities. To make a long story short, I was a basketcase, and the entire staff comforted me and made me feel completely normal. I am able to smile and I am very happy. I am scared of needles, and I can guarantee the only pain experienced their was no pain experienced the whole treatment.\r Cons: Cost more

Thanks for giving me my smile back!!!! 10/10/2007

I had a bad experience with my former dentist that resulted in the lost of one of my 2 front teeth. When I asked how he was going to replace my tooth he gave two options I was unsatisfied with:\r \r a four tooth bridge that would damage three healthy teeth\r a removable denture that I would have to take when I eat and sleep\r \r Because I'm not an old man, (I'm 26) and this guy took forever to file my claims, looked into dental implants. After doing my research I was impressed with the professionalism at Smile in the City. Everyone was kind and courteous. Dr. Zelig and Dr Nargiz made this as painless and quick as possible. I received a full load dental implant back in June with a temporary crown attached to it as a gum graft. I recently received my final crown last week. The only pain I really felt was the removal of my suttres. And I've had pinches that hurt more. Know one knows I've had this done thats how good of a job they did. \r \r Thanks to these two I can eat in public without being self conscious and I can smile again. I highly recommend them and I will be going back to them in the future should the need arise. Pros: Very professional, painless, up to date equipment Cons: None, except for the cost but for what I got it was a bargain more

Best Cosmetic Dental Care in New York City 10/8/2007

If you are accustomed to quality, luxury and comfort, then you'd definitely appreciate Dr. Schmidt, Dr. Zelig as well the entire Smile in the City dental group. Dr. Schmidt gave me the most beautiful smile I've ever dreamed of. She redid my veneers that were placed by a ""high-profile"" general dentist 3 years ago. The main problem with poorly placed veneers is that they don't look like your natural teeth, more like dentures. I was referred to Dr. Schmidt by one of my close friends who assured me that she was the best dentist in the City. I was a little skeptical at first because she looked quite young in her website picture (in fact she is 36), and I usually prefer specialists in their 40s. I became more enthusiastic, once I learned that Dr. Schmidt had a training as prosthodontist, a specialist in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. But the result surpassed all of my expectations. Not only is she a top professional in her field, she is also warm, caring and incredibly patient. And when you see a perfectly natural, dazzling smile of yours in a mirror, you think it was just a miracle. Although the fees are not cheap (how can you expect to get a first-class service in NYC at a low cost?), they are quite reasonable (in comparison, my previous ""high-profile"" dentist charged $2,100 for one veneer, which was totally outrageous). THANK YOU, DR. SCHMIDT! THANK YOU, SMILE IN THE CITY! Pros: Immaculate cosmetic result, painless procedures, friendly customer service, reasonable fees Cons: None I can think of more

Wow! I can't believe I waited this long!! 7/30/2007

Ever since I was a child, I suffered from discoloration on my teeth. The problem only got worse as I continued to grow up and as such, so did my self-consciousness of them as well. My self-consciousness was only fueled by friends and family members who would openly ask me ?What is wrong with your teeth?? Every time this would happen, I would routinely schedule a consultation with a local dentist to discuss the options to fix the appearance of my teeth, and time and time again, the answer was veneers. I never did go through with the procedure by the advice of my childhood dentist who said that my teeth were too sensitive to have veneers and would always suffer from pain. \r \r After two decades of searching, I discovered Lumineers and more importantly, Dr. Schmidt and the staff of Smile in the City. They took their time to explain all of the options and how everything worked and made sure that all of my questions were constantly answered. Dr. Schmidt?s attention to detail has provided me with the smile I have always dreamed of. Unlike other dentists who provide the Lumineers procedure, Dr. Schmidt analyzes your mouth and facial structure to provide you with the best results possible.\r \r Since Lumineers, people no longer ask me what is wrong with my teeth, but rather ?What did you do to make them so PERFECT!? My only regret is that I didn?t do this sooner. Thank you Dr. Schmidt and Smile in the City. \r \r more

my smile went from :) to :D thanks to Smile in the City! 6/25/2007

Smile in the City is a very professional and friendly dental office. The staff is very welcoming, well informed, as well as acommodating. Dr. Schmidt was the dental specialist that took care of my case. I had a small gap in my front teeth and opted for lumineers. Dr. Schmidt also has photos of her patients with before/after photos, so if I were you I'd ask to see them. If you're nervous about her work, it will ease you fears because the book really will help you see the difference and just how good she is. As a matter of fact, you''ll now see my before/after photos in there as well! \r She answered all my questions and once I had decided to get them, she booked me into her schedule as soon as possible ( within the week).\r \r Two short visits (under 90 mins) and I had a new smile! For anyone who is looking for a better smile minus the pain, hassle, and time, I would highly recommend getting Lumineers ...especially by Dr. Schmidt!\r It's been a few months and I am thankful for my better smile every passing day \r :D Pros: convenient location (not far from grand central), friendly/professional environment, speedy Cons: its expensive (but in the end thats the cost of the service/product) you are getting in the long run more

Very unfriendly receptionist. 6/22/2007

Friendly staff, easy to talk to Doctors, very professional. 3/12/2007

Like so many people, I was nervous and a little worried about getting dental work done. Dr. Schmidt and the calming, friendly staff made me feel so comfortable! I am so happy to have found this wonderful group of professionals. This is a great office where they actually seem to care about you and the outcome. Dr. Schmidt was one of the most gentle dentists I have ever come across. She is really great at what she does. I would really recommend this place who needs any dental work, from basic cleaning to complete veneers. I had six veneers put on my bottom teeth and they look fantastic. I am very happy with the outcome and my new teeth! This was truley one of the greatest dental experiences I have ever had. And I was comfortable the whole time! Anyone should feel comfortable trusting their mouth to this amazing staff.\r Thank you so much Dr. Schmidt,\r Thank you Ellen for going next door and getting me water! \r Thank you everyone for the friendly service. Pros: love the fish tank desk, comfortable office, pleasant staff more

The BEST Dental Experience 11/11/2006

I was looking to invest in veneers, a costly and intimidating experience. I searched around to find the perfect dentist. From the moment I had a FREE consultation at Smile in the City, I knew this was where I wanted the work to be done. The offices and equipment are cutting edge and the dentists are incredibly talented and devoted. All my concerns were answered, and I felt sincerely cared for by the entire staff. Not having any dental insurance, I was worried about the payment policies. I received immediate approval for an interest free loan that allowed me to proceed with the procedure. Dr. Schmidt has given me the smile I have always dreamed about. I couldn't be more happy with my experience at Smile in the City and I highly recommend joining their family of patients. Pros: Devoted, sincere & sophisticated staff, amzaing payment options, state of the art equipment Cons: The procedure was a little rough, but hey its dental work not the spa! more
