“My dentist is awesome! I’m a Broadway actor and my smile is my living. Dr. D bleached my teeth, then used “bonding material” to close several gaps and change the shape of my smile. Now I look like a Hollywood star. Thanks Dr. D!”

“Best Dentist in New York – Seriously. Dr. Dorfman and his staff are the best dentists in New York that I have been to. He explains everything, doesn’t patronize you, acts like a person, and treats you like a friend. Though going to the dentist is no one’s idea of a good time, Dr. D makes the experience painless and worthwhile. Now if I could only find a good mechanic I’d be set!”
