About Dr. Maritza Nunez

Dr. Nunez practiced in Ecuador for 10 years before moving to the United States where she attended New York University and received her degree in dentistry. With 30 years of experience, Dr. Nunez has dedicated her life to providing excellent dental services. By devoting her time to educate each patient, Dr. Nunez not only provides dental services, but also establishes a lasting bond with her patients. She is known for delivering her services with professionalism, kindness, experience and, most importantly, patience. This is why her patients cherish her not only as a dentist, but also as a friend. She has been able to stay at the leading edge of the latest advances in the dental services and dental technology. With her years of experience, Dr. Nunez has noticed one of the major weaknesses of the industry: the lack of specialists in a dental office. There are dental practices where the general dentists have to perform everything - from dental cleaning to major surgery. In order to offer her patients the care they deserve, Dr. Nunez began assembling a team of specialists in 2008. A team that not only show the great qualities that Dr. Nunez is known for, but also share her philosophy of putting the patient first, not the treatment. Education: Doctor of Dental Surgery, New York University College of Dentistry, 1990 Specializations: General Dentistry Years of Experience: 30 Years Dentals Associations: AGD (Academy of General Dentistry), AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry), ADA (American Dental Association), NYSD (New York State Dental Association) Languages: English, Spanish

Tells me they accept insurance, and then try to have me pay for service once I arrive in. Waste of time.

Ridiculous wait time. I've been to this practice before and they were adding me in as a new patient. If you do need to go to this practice, make sure you opt out on their phone calls. It's like they're telemarketers.

The wait time was the worst part of it all, but only because I ended up changing the initial procedure I originally scheduled for. I probably wouldn't have minded the long wait if it wasn't so cold either; the A/C was kicking. Saturday is a busy day, so be careful. Once I went in, all was better. Loved the view! Everyone was very helpful in explaining the treatments. It was definitely for my benefit. Most of my family comes here and they're quite happy with the work done. If they trust them, I trust them. Thanks!

From the bottom of my heart, I recommend Nunez Dental to anyone seeking the best in dental care, service and advice. The staff is always warm, welcoming, and friendly, and dentists and assistants are professional to the max. Even the most extensive procedures have been painless, and my childhood fear of going to the dentists has been long gone; in fact, I look forward to my regular cleanings and checkups, and whatever procedures are necessary, all knowing that I am receiving the very finest care.

For someone who's a complete child when it comes to seeing the dentist, Dr. Nunez and her entire staff (including her hygienist, Stephanie) were absolutely amazing at putting me at ease. Dr. Nunez took her time to explain every detail and was extremely maternal (yeah, you're really going to want someone like your mama if you're as afraid of dentists like me.) This office takes their time with you, you do not end up feeling like you're just another body. Logistics wise, I really loved how all services, including oral surgery, were consolidated on the same floor. There was absolutely no wait time, the staff is professional, courteous, you can ask any question regarding your procedure and they will gladly fill you in. The DDS who performed my fillings was such a gentle person, barely felt anything, and man, do we really need more dentists with exquisite bedside manner. Highly recommend coming here.
