Dr Ostro is both an extremely talented professional with whom I have incredible confidence based on his work, but also a genuinely nice and caring person. He is expert at his work, but he also takes the time to explain allto his patients, fielding questions, etc. He puts you at ease and makes you feel confident about having him as a doctor. Cannot recommend higher.

I was very upset when I found out about a chipped tooth from the surgery (Removal of 3 wisdom teeth). When I went back for stitches removal I spoke with Dr. Ostro about that chipped tooth during the surgery. After, whenhe spoke with my husband he spoke about it as about cavity that needs to be repaired and he reminded my husband that he would charge us extra for that. My husband later called and spoke with him again and doc. offered another appointment to look at it, but we did not feel the will from doctor’s side. Doctor promised us discount for the third tooth, but he was not specific at all.. in the end he said it was more complicated, so we paid even more than for the other two. He could buy an old car for the amount we left there and I would expect a bigger effort in repairing his own mistakes. He did not specify that amount before surgery. Even when I had an appointment for that surgery I waited more than hour because the doctor decided to take someone who came in that morning first.

I was very nervous, needed an emergency appointment with an oral surgeon. Got an appointment the same day. Dr. Ostro is a FANTASTIC doctor, he clearly cared and was quick to try to ease my stress, and more than helpful makingsure everything was taken care of and everyone was on the same page. Ended up having two wisdom teeth pulled under local. Very quick, as painless as you can get, having bone pulled out of your mouth. No questions asked, I'll be going back to him for the other two teeth. I would almost be bummed if that was the only time I got to see Dr. Ostro. Such a great doctor.

Just had my wisdom teeth extracted a procedure I've been putting off for ten years due to trauma by another dentist, he removed all 4 wisdom teeth made me feel comfortable made me feelhappy, I'm so emotional That I've finally found a dentist I can trust and I'll visit regularly. They explained everything.. words can't describe how happy I am that I've found dr Ostro. I'll be following up with him in two weeks and I told my boyfriend to make dr Ostro his dentist.

Dr Ostro is absolutely wonderful. He talked me through the procedure and once we were underway, he kept checking in to make sure I was alright and even made small talk to take my attention off the noises.

He didn't fully explain the insurance situation regarding my wisdom tooth being removed. He waited to tell me important information until immediately after I had just taken a shot of anesthesia, which clearly isn't my best state of mind. Endedup costing me much more than I had originally discussed with Dr. Osteo when he had already given me a definitive price.

Exceptionally skilled, considerate, and attentive. Dr. Ostro answered all of my questions about an extraction, and performed it a few weeks later with excellent results. Quick, painless, and comfortable - exactly what I was hoping for. Highly recommended for extractions.

The moment I walked in to Dr. Elliot Ostro's office, I was greeted warmly with a smile and a handshake. There was no wait, granted, I went at 9am when they open, and he saw me immediately. Dr. Ostro went aboveand beyond; he was patient, kind and funny! He took his time with me, which is rare in NYC because usually the Dr.'s are in a rush to get in and get out, and carefully explained everything. You can tell he genuinely enjoys meeting and interacting with patients. One of the best Dr. experiences I've ever had!

I came in early this morning for a tooth extraction-- the first time I ever had a problem with my teeth. I was extremely nervous and scared but who wouldn't be? As soon as I walked in Lorraine at the frontdesk welcomed me with a warm smile and helped ease the anxious feeling I was feeling. After going to the room where I was greeted with Dr.Ostro, I was starting to think I made a mistake by going but as soon as the processed began I knew my decision was right ! Both him and Lorraine helped distract me and other then the slight pinch of the numbing medication I didn't feel a thing. He's really awesome and I'm so glad I found him.

I felt like I was in good hands with Dr. Ostro. I had two wisdom teeth removed and decided to go with a local anesthetic. Dr. Ostro talked me through the steps of the procedure and calmed me down when Iwas nervous. His office assistants were also very helpful and contributed to the calm atmosphere of the office. I definitely recommend Dr. Ostro as an oral surgeon.
