Genuinely had such a good experience with Tim and his staff. I didn't have to wait (I actually made them wait filling out papers!), Tim is very personable and helpful (he helped explain and breakdown what he was looking at/for), insurance/paymentwas smooth, and I felt like a valued patient at this practice. All of the staff was pleasant and friendly. They give you a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss after your cleaning which is always nice. Honestly would recommend highly. I'm looking forward to returning in 6 months for my next cleaning!

Loved Dr. Culotta. Had a bit of a struggle with the front desk staff (had to be very assertive about keeping my scheduled appointment time), but all ended well and I’ll definitely be back to the doctor.

By far the best experience I’ve had with any dentist. To start, I was greeted by a friendly and informative receptionist. I didn’t have to wait at all, which was great! Then, Dr. Tim sat down with me to discuss mydental history and thoroughly explained how I could meet my future dental needs. The dental hygienist was great and I didn’t feel any pain. 5/5 would recommend!

I've gone to him for the past couple of years and each time has been great. The first time I went because I was recommended by a friend and started feeling some pain in my back tooth. I ended up havinga very deep cavity and I was worried it could become a root canal. It was a close call, but luckily Dr. Culotta was able to fill it in! The other dental assistance are all really gentle and everyone is so nice!

Dr. Culotta was funny and had warm bedside manner. He gave good dental advice and didn't try to up-sell services/treatments. The cleaning was a little quick and didn't feel thorough enough.

Dr. Culotta was amazing. I am so excited I decided to give him and his office a try. He and the dental technician were both extremely nice, explained EVERYTHING in detail, and so gentle. I will 100% be coming back andmaking Dr. Culotta my new dentist.

I think that Dr. Culotta did a good job for my filling. He is very nice and talks you through everything before he does anything. I felt that there was a quality work done. And the office and the equipments arevery clean and new. The only thing that I didn't like was the front desk. They didn't give me anything that shows the details of the visit. Dr. Culotta filled one tooth and then suggested I need 6 more fillings, and he also put on watch some of the teeth. He walked me through them but I wasn't taking notes, so I didn't remember exactly what teeth they were later on. The front desk didn't provide me anything on these details. I had to ask for it later on. Also, when I asked the price of a filling to the front desk, she didn't give me an answer. She talked about it depends on how much insurance will deduct, etc. but my question was very simple, what is your price - before any deductions? For some reason, they are not very transparent. This could be because their prices are very high. I didn't like that I had to chase down everything. In summary, even though I like the doctor a lot, I am considering if I am going there again. Because they are not easy to work with.

So - I have to start by sharing that I am incredibly fearful of any/all dental procedures. Dr. Tim had great skills and demeanor, put and kept me at ease the entire time, thoroughly explained available options, and as I sharedwith him at the end of the appointment, I have finally found my NYC Dentist!

D. Timothy made sure he introduced himself right when he saw I was in his office. Then, he took the time to get to know me, where I was from, what I did for a living, etc. and I could tellhe was listening and was very interested about what I was saying. This made my visit personable and an overall great experience. His staff was also extremely friendly and ensured all my questions/concerns were answered.

Dr. Culotta is the best! No judgment, respectful, takes the time to explain exactly why he is recommending specific procedures. He takes the time to learn about his patients and will remember details about your life months later. It may seemodd, but I actually look forward to my 6 month check-ups! Highly recommend.

Beautiful office, seen right away and dr.culotta was very very kind and friendly! Felt super comfortable and he explained every little thing that was going on which was nice. Also the assistant did a great job placing the X-ray thing inmy mouth, other assistants usually aren't as careful and it's pretty painful. Happy to return!
