i went there for a filling but rather than fixing it they kept talking about my missing tooth and howthey can do an implant etc i decided to go to another dentist and i asked them to give me my x-raythey didnt want to send it and a few days later they send a unreadable email, which was useless.

For the first time I did like my experience with the staff and Dr. Menendez, He informed me about any issues they found and gave me good advice on the next steps to take. My teeth look amazing and I am on my way to correct any issues.

Hands down, the best dentist I have ever seen. Dr. Menendez listened to all my problems and concerned, offered several courses of treatment and several options financially, and immediately fixed two urgent problems I was having. Besides this,his staff is lovely and the office is beautiful and up-to-date with equipment I have never even seen before. Even if I still lived in New York City, I would be driving to Dr. Menendez in Union, NJ for my treatment. Best dental experience of my life.

Dr. Menendez and his staff are genuinely warm and caring. I was a bit apprehensive about getting my wisdom teeth extracted and Dr. Menendez and his team were amazing. They walked me through the whole process and they made sure I was always comfortable.
