Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Dr. Ostro and his staff were great! I was terrified of having 2 teeth extracted, but Dr. Ostro's bedside manner was wonderful. He made me feel at ease and the procedure wasn't bad at all. Recommend x1000!
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 above and 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 like to learn everything about the procedures and Dr. Ostro gladly explains it all in detail with an obvious passion for his work. That's my kind of doctor!
Dr. Ostro is the man. And Lorraine is fantastic. Just got 2 wisdom teeth out and it was unbelievably quick and painless. Highly recommend!
Dr. Ostro and his staff are personable and efficient. My problem was taken care of quickly and efficiently and with minimal pain despite the infection I came in with.
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 front desk 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.
Dr. Ostro is a very knowledgeable and experienced oral surgeon. He also takes the time to really listen and put you at ease. I would definitely recommend 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 I was 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.
Dr Ostro was extremely courteous and paid great attention to detail. He seemed to be in no rush and we chatted for a while. Definitely a big plus, I like being treated like an actual human. I also liked that there was no rush for the treatments. The receptionist was also really nice, and a great help figuring out finances!

Very helpful and attentive. Good doctor, highly recommend.
Great doctor,very helpfull in suggestion abt tretmant,and very flexible with paymant arrangmant
Dr. Ostro is simply a wonderful guy from the hello to the goodbye. He personally does the cleaning, not a hygienist. Five stars.
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. Ended up costing me much more than I had originally discussed with Dr. Osteo when he had already given me a definitive price.
Dr. Ostro never disappoints with his level of expertise and post-op followup. Left his office feeling reassured as always as I look forward to my full recovery in his capable hands!
Dr. Ostro aka my Dental God never disappoints. I had pre-surgery jitters for days but after a flawless procedure, I am once again ever so relieved and grateful to Dr. Ostro that I am on the steady road to recovery and under the care of his very capable hands! Staff is also warm and friendly and I give a special shout-out to Dr.Ostro's assistant Lorraine who demonstrates the utmost in professionalism, capability, caring and kindness. And as always, I highly recommend him to all my family and friends.
Dr. Ostro is very experienced. I felt comfortable throughout the procedure.

Dr. Ostro and his assistant was amazing from the minute I walked in the office to the minute I walked out the door! I will definitely be returning and I highly recommend him!! I looked all over for a GOOD surgeon to pull my wisdom teeth and I found him, lucky me!!
Dr. Ostro was amazing! I had never seen him before, but I was having a dental related emergency and I'm so glad I went to his office. I was seen as soon as I got to the office, and Dr. Ostro was friendly, warm, and welcoming. He explained the problem I was having and the procedure I would need to fix it in depth, and answered every question I had about it. He also didn't pressure me to schedule the procedure with him right away, which I liked. Overall, this was a really great experience and I would absolutely recommend him to friends!
Dr. Ostro and his staff were wonderful. I was very nervous about the procedure I was having done however he was able to ease my nerves by keeping the mood light and casual. Dr. Ostro personally followed up with me a few days after my surgery to see how I was feeling which I felt to be a wonderful gesture. I was very happy with my experience and would definitely recommend Dr. Ostro to any friends in need of an oral surgeon.
Dr. Ostro is professional yet reassuring. He explains his methodology, expected outcomes and personal/financial impacts clearly and directly.

When my husband and I arrived to Dr. Ostro's office I am not impressed with the way that office looks, the dental office has partially covered for a carpet and for me is totally unsanitary having a carpet in a medical facility. her receptionist which is his assistant too, was very nice and welcoming, opposite to Dr. Ostro who was there at the time we arrived and stayed in silent paying attention to his computer, he never answered our greetings. After a few seconds his assistant ask us why we were there and I said it was for an extraction as we talked over the phone and also by internet then Dr. Replies:" is for a consultation", (ta daaaaaa we are not invisibles) I was a little mad because he didn't looking at us and my time it is so precious to go anywhere just for a consultation. My husband was escorted by his assistant for taking a panorex and then to the dental chair for the extraction, at that time Dr. Ostro shows a better face and become nicer. The extraction was nice and easy not complications, bone grafting were place after asking us to do so, I accepted because I know the procedure but he didn't took the time to explain us what he us going to do and pros and cons of the dental treatment that includes implant and crown. The rest of the staff was a little rough and ignoring us, coming and go, slamming the doors and speaking louder, it is not a friendly staff. We are planning going back for a second chance and follow up, eventhough we had this annoying first impression. I am very grateful with her assistant because she was nice and all the time she was trying to help us as much as she can (you never said your name). We have union insurance and the doctor was very incisive regarding insurance's payments, that if is slow or taking a month to collect the money, that's not nice, I know dentistry is a career but is a business too but That part make me feel kind of discrimination, maybe I am wrong. I know Dr. Ostro can be better than today, I noticed he is competent and his expertise unquestionable, maybe today wasn't a good day for him or for me but when you are committed as a Dr. the high quality standards has to be the key for a successful career with patients. I am not trying to be destructive, I want to be constructive and taking my comments to improve your practice and relationships between dr. - pt. Thank you for your service today.
Dr Ostro is the best! I am terrified of dentists/ oral surgeons and had a really bad experience with my first wisdom tooth extraction because of complicated roots/ positioning. Dr Ostro did my second one and it was amazing - the whole thing was over in under an hour and I didn't feel a thing. He is also a lovely person and will make you feel at ease and answer all your questions. This is a lovely practise where you get personal care and attention. If you're looking for a great oral surgeon who is also friendly/ not scary just go with Dr Ostro!
Dr. Ostro is by far one of the best dentists I have ever seen! He is very amicable, answers all of your questions, and makes every visit a painless experience :-)
What a wonderful, confident doctor. He sure made me feel right at home and made sure I was comfortable and relaxed before beginning the procedure. Would totally recommend. He is great at what he does!!
He's great and so quick!
He is very understanding and explains everything in detail about what the procedure will be. I was there for wisdom tooth removal. Made me feel comfortable even though I was nervous.
He is one of the best dentist I have ever been to. He was calm, funny, and very concerned about why I came to visit. The office was small but very clean and comfy. The dental assistant there was also a nice person, i would definitely recommend anyone who would like to go there. Most dentist I've been to can be mean but not Dr. Elliot Ostro!
He keeper me clam and made sure I understood what he was doing.
Excellent service and very clear and thorough instructions regarding the recovery process after the procedure.
Professional, personal, entirely friendly and trustworthy.
The drill broke off in my mouth and cut me while my mouth was numb. I will not be going here again.
Dr. Ostro is a courteous and professional care provider of the first order. I have something of an aversion towards dental work in general (hey-- it can really hurt sometimes!), but Dr Ostro is very sensitive and understanding towards my needs and concerns as a patient. He takes great care to fully explain all procedures-- what needs to be done, how it will be done, and why. I'm sure that some of my questions might seem silly or the answers to same rather obvious, but he has never made me feel the least bit foolish for asking, and provides complete and intelligent answers to my satisfaction. On the occasion I do have to go 'under the knife', he is extremely patient with me and takes every opportunity to ensure my comfort and confidence. I highly recommend Dr Ostro to anyone, and especially to persons such as myself who are afraid of pain. His Office Manager, Lorraine, is also quite instrumental in providing a relaxing and stress-free atmosphere in this office.
He explained what I needed to have done and I felt very reassured that I would receive excellent care!
