Great office ...Great staff ! Everything was great ! Dr Gattegno was very attentive to my needs and I felt verycalm ( usually I’m a nervous wreck going to the dentist )... I’ve been looking for a dentist on the upper west side since moving from California a few years ago ...I’m so lucky I found Dr Gattegno Would HIGHLY recommend:)

Great - I didn't have my insurance card with me and they worked with me to get the policy number andhe answered all my questions I had. Made me feel very comfortable and I wasn't too nervous this time. even the hygienist was very competent. thanks

Despite seeing nothing but negative reviews in this man's YELP page about his horrible services, I decided to give him a chance. I traveled an hour early in the morning to make it to my 8am appointment on time. I wasthe first to arrive and yet he saw everyone that arrived after me first . After complaining to the receptionist it was clear he was seeing those people first because they were paying out of pocket. I had a rookie take 2 pictures for my X-rays and then the man sat me down to tell me I need to go to an oral surgeon to get my wisdom teeth removed. He didn't touch my mouth or do anything, he just took my copay and sent me away. He has terrible bedside manner, the rooms in his facility are extremely dirty and he did not explain ANYTHING to me. He took a post it (yes a post it) and in it wrote the 2 teeth that I need pulled out. I even requested that he glues my tooth cap back on and he said that I would have to come back another time because he was TOO BUSY. If he did not want to deal with me he shouldn't have accepted my appointment request.

The best doctor experience in New York. Was having insurance issues and the Dr went out of his way to give some simple information to help the process. Have never experienced this ever. Service and everything appointment related was great too.

I had a very pleasant dental visit with Dr. Gattengno. I felt that he and his hygienist took into account my concerns and did not push me into any treatments I felt uncomfortable with. The hygienist was very gentle but dida good cleaning, and was very attune to the patient's needs. Will return.

Dr. Gattegno was amazing! He Really took his time and explained all my treatment options. The care is second to none. The hygienist (Nicole) also did a great job cleaning my teeth. The entire staff was very professional and they allmade me feel right at home....will definitely come back and will recommend all my friends and co-workers. After years of searching I finally found a dentist I could really trust and know I'm receiving the best care..... 5 stars all the way!!

I did not feel like my teeth were properly cleaned. I haven’t been to the dentist in a while and told them I felt plaque build up. The hygienist didn’t go deep enough and I still feel the build up. Forthe exam portion, I had to ask the dentist to check my teeth more sufficiently. He did not check for cavities with a tool until I asked.

Got the job done, not sure if it was done well (broken tooth). Dr was friendly, good bedside. Unclean office, check up was brief at best- I prefer thorough questioning to understand the situation best in order to make the bestchoice of action. Not covered by insurance? I'm investigating that. Mediocre at best.

The dental office is located on the first floor of a residential building. It’s a very small space. I had to squeeze past a huge desk to get into the examine room.The Dental assistant was friendly. Dr. Daniel Gattegno was havinga personal conversation about a new hire, to the dental hygienist who was cleaning my teeth, while she was cleaning my teeth.This happened right over my head. It was very off putting to say the least. He was very unprofessional and unfriendly, the office was dirty the blinds on the window was full of dust, and the chair you sit on to get your exam was dirty as well. I won’t be returning here. I feel like the service i received was based off my insurance, I receive Medicaid. I would never recommend this office to anyone. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had with a dentist or any doctor.

I’m really surprised at all of the positive reviews for this office. It’s extremely small, cramped, and hasn’t been cleaned in a long time. The doctor barely glanced at my teeth before telling me he didn’t need to do x-rays andthat I was perfectly healthy and had no cavities. He looked maybe for 2 seconds. The rest of the time he sat at the front desk, because he is also the receptionist, and answered phones in an extremely rude manner and fought with an insurance company. The hygienist rushed through a cleaning as fast as she could, and I was sent on my way. Extremely unprofessional. I would not recommend to ANYONE.
