I don't like visiting most dentists because they tend to be judgmental and arrogant. Dr. Gandhi may be the best dentist I've had in my life so far. Calm and efficient, she made me feel at ease and commended me onmy dental hygiene -- which dentists have never done because they're too busy tut-tutting over not coming every six months, etc. Recommended her to my friends.

I found Dr. Gandi when I used to live in the Bronx. I now live in Manhattan but I ended up going back to Dr. Gandi after a bad experience with the Manhattan dentist. Dr. Gandi is thorough, has great bedsidemanner, and never rushes you out the door. She is always happy to answer all my questions and concerns, which is especially important for patients who want to get the most out of each dental visit to prevent additional oral health problems in the future! Looking forward to my next dental cleaning/checkup with Dr. Gandi! Thanks again!
