After completing two other consultations for braces I scheduled a consultation (with ease using Zoc Doc) with Dr. Pliakas. At this point I was tired from doing research and disappointed by the diagnosis from the other doctors. I am thrilledthat I decided to meet with Dr. Pliakas and his team! From the initial consult I knew that this treatment plan was the one! The office is conveniently located on the upper westside (and its beautiful space.) Dr. Pliakas gave a clear and thorough explanation of all of my options and specific recommendations for my case. Helen handled all of my financial and administrative concerns with perfection! Affordable pricing, especially for the NYC metro area. Please schedule your consultation, you will not be disappointed.

Dr. Pliakas, does great work! He replaced the permanent retainer on my top teeth after I came in with it basically mangled from years of abuse. He replaced the whole thing for a really reasonable price and then guaranteed the workfor a full year. So, when I came back in with a loose binding 5 months later after a run in with a nasty baguette, he fixed me up for free and had me on my way in a swift 20 minutes. The office is clean and professional, and the wonderful woman at the front desk is always warm and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Pliakas and Central Park Orthodontics!

Dr. Pliakas is a great orthodontist and I am glad I trusted him with my teeth (the orthodontic treatment is for myself as an adult, not my kids). He is very professional and well experienced. His clinic is very clean andstaff super friendly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a board-certified orthodontist. He will definitely give you and your kids a beautiful smile!

The office is brand new and very nice. I was told they moved into the space in June 2015. I felt rates were reasonable and reception was very helpful to plan my payments around my insurance plan. Given the location onCentral Park West, cost had been a concern of mine. I am happy I made this choice!
