Verified Patient Reviews
Thorough cleaning great visit
Great office / very professional
Awesome dentist who takes care to explain things clearly and make you feel comfortable. Highly recommend.
Professional and courteous.
Dr Ramya is the best dentist in Jersey City!. The office staff is friendly, and professional. If you're looking for a new dentist that takes personal care of each and every patient, please give them a call.
What a fantastic experience. Incredibly convenient location; great space; zero wait; helpful and friendly staff; and Dr. Narayanan provided the most thorough and comprehensive exam and cleaning I've ever received. Cannot recommend this practice more highly!
Really fantastic - highly recommend. Didn't mind the wait at all (wasn't long and the staff was informative, helpful, and friendly).
Took my 8 year old daughter for a cleaning/exam. Great experience in the new dental office. Very nice setup and convenient location. Dr Ramya and team are superb.
New office location & setup for clinic is awesome. Great service from the staff as usual & Dr. Ramya is wonderful.
She was great! Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. She took all my concerns seriously and treated me respectfully. I liked her a lot.
It was a very good experince.
Another visit with Dr. N, this time for a deep tooth cleansing -- who would have thought this procedure would be a mostly pleasant experience. Thanks so much Dr. N!!
She's great. If you are a dental-phobe, give her a call.
Good dentist with personable interaction.
Had a good time here, intend to come again! The water pick isn't for everyone, but it's great at cleaning my teeth :)
Good job. She was gentle and thorough.
Didn't wait long at all, staff was attentive and courteous, Dr. Narayanan was very kind and informative and was thorough in narrating all the work she did throughout my cleaning. FYI they are changing locations soon. I'll be back!
Absolutely fantastic! I don't particularly enjoy dentist visits, but I'm so happy to have found such a great doctor and office staff.
Always nice and thorough.
This office, meaning the physical space, was awful. To have your teeth cleaned in a place where the walls aren't properly painted, signage is spelled incorrectly, and felt overall dirty was really an uncomfortable experience. Everyone was really nice, but truly the environment was horrible.
Once again I am in love with this office. It is quick and easy and after the renovations much, much nicer. All three visits have been me walking in, checking in, being greeted, being cleaned, being reminded to floss more and then me leaving just as happy as I came in. It's an excellent deal and an excellent place and location. Couldn't be happier.
Dr. Narayanan was extremely professional, thorough and clear in her work.
I took my 7 year old daughter to see the dentist as one of her permanent tooth was not coming out. The dentist was able to calm my daughter who was very anxious and showed her and us the x-rays to explain where the tooth was and made us very comfortable. Definitely recommend for any family.
Highly recommend Dr. Ramya. She is very professional. I had a cleaning. It was very quick yet very thorough. Also had a couple of small cavities which was shown to me clearly in the X-Ray and the receptionist gave me a complete breakup of cost which I have never received from any of my previous dentists. Highly recommend.
I have been getting my teeth clean every three or four months for the past five years and this one was one of the quickest most inefficient cleanings I received. All dental cleanings I have had ended with flossing and there was no flossing. The dentist did overview my x-rays and articulated that my teeth were health, but after getting home, I did some scraping of my teeth and I still pulled white "gunk" that should have been taken care of with the cleaning. Wasn't impressed and I will still search for a dentist in Jersey City.
It's was great overall. The doctor is very smart and knowledgeable
Excellent treatment. Professional service. Friendly staff.
Dr. Narayanan was very professional and detailed. Explained what was going on with my son's tooth and fixed the issue promptly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Narayanan and her staff are courteous, professional, and do excellent work.
Dr. Narayanan is diligent and thorough. She made sure I was comfortable and had all the answers to my questions.
The office staff are very pleasant and work within your budget and appointment schedules. Dr Ramya is very professional and thorough in her explanation of the consultation. Using enough analogy and examples for you to follow. I highly recommend her services.
Cares about patients, doesn't push anything, and is efficient. Very rare in a dentist!
Dr. Ramya Narayanan has a lovely bedside manner. She is intelligent and puts the patient at ease. I recommend her abilities. The Strong Roots office needed cleaning, however Dr. Ramya's service made me care less about that.
Very professional, friendly and helpful Highly recommended!!! Thank you very much!!!
Not sure why but was told the dentist will not accept my insurance anymore all of the sudden
I went to Dr. Narayanan after reading several positive patient reviews on Yelp.com and ZocDoc.com. The reason for my visit was that the porcelain veneer on my front left tooth fell off and cracked into two pieces. Dr. N evaluated my situation and informed me I would have to replace with a new veneer. Today was my 2nd visit to have Dr. N create a temporary veneer. As I have had my veneers for 22 years without any incidences, I was somewhat nervous about how it would go and if the color would match my remaining veneers. I'm happy to say that Dr. N did an AWESOME JOB and the process was painlessI! I have to return in 10 days to apply the permanent veneer and I'm SO GRATEFUL to have found her. She now has a patient for LIFE and I will DEFINITELY recommend her to anyone needing dental assistance!! THANK YOU DR. N!!!
Great experience all round
Nice quick visit that took me in right away despite being 15 minutes early for the appointment. Between the 15 minute travel to get there and getting back I was able to squeeze it all in my lunch hour and still have time leftover to write this review. Used a groupon and zocdoc electronic check in.
Dr. Ramya and her staff are absolutely great! I was a little nervous about my visit because I didn't know what to expect. Dr. Ramya was super sweet, gentle, & definetly made me feel comfortable during my visit. I am very happy with the results & will definetly make her my permanent Dentist. I recommend her 100% to anyone in the area.
Love the staff members, very professional and friendly. The Dentist there are very good at what they do.
She was very professional,gentle and caring.
She has great bedside manner and is very thoughtful. She mindfully explains what is going on and afterwards, my teeth felt amazing.
She was probably the best dentist I have seen in awhile , she's very sweet and understanding and willing to work with whatever it is that you need.
Wonderful experience. Dr. Ramya was very professional and the staff very courteous. Would highly recommend.
Very thourough and professional. Great bedside manner. Look forward to seeing her again.
Went in with a Groupon along with a tooth extraction appt. They claim they performed the full exam when they only gave me XRays. Receptionist/ assistant did not look at the ZocDoc information provided at the time the appoint was made that was clearly red flagging me from getting a tooth extraction. Was not informed prior to my appointment that I would not be able to get a cracked tooth pulled because they did not review my documentation appropriately. Entire visit was completely unprofessional and other than a cleaning that they owe me, I would probably never step foot in that office nor recommend them to anyone unless I was desperate.
It was a pleasure for me to get treated by her and her staff. I was just in time, and within few minutes the treatment started. I liked their attentiveness and commitment.
Completely nice experience. She is my permanent dentist now.
Great dentist!!!! Really was a pleasant experience she was very helpful with what I need to have done.
Very friendly staff, and very helpful
She was very nice even her staff was amazing with me. She never complained she just gave me what i needed and what she wanted me to have. She did not cut any conners with me.
Very good doctor, Kind and professional. I would recommend her
Dr. Ramya was great. Explained procedure very patiently and no suprises.
Really appreciated the ease of online checkin, less than 10 min wait time, friendly staff and professionalism. Going back and bringing family.
They don't have the nicest office but Dr. Narayanan and her staff were very friendly, professional, and helpful. I would go back to her in the future.
I get my teeth cleaned regularly (twice per year) and have not had any major dental issues. This dentist rushed the appointment, probably had her hands in my mouth "cleaning" for a maximum of 5 minutes. No polishing of the teeth. Limited hands on time. I went to her last minute because I wanted to use my dental benefit before the end of the year. She did tell me I had good oral hygiene, but that doesn't not excuse the lack of a true cleaning. I would not recommend her and I have discouraged others from visiting her practice.
Awful! Waited for almost an hour pass my appointed time, while the doctor treated 3 other people during MY APPOINTED TIME! When the doctor came in right from the start there was a feeling she wants to sell and I am just a dollar sign in her eyes. At the end of the visit she says I have cavities and I need a crown. I was really shocked to hear this as at a previous visit at my usual dentist everything was alright and she made it sound like there is a lot of bad things going on in my mouth. So naturally I wanted to know where exactly in my mouth is this going on. But the doctor just sent me to the front desk and went in to another room to treat the next patient. I was just standing there in disbelief hoping she would come and talk to me, but no... The receptionist just went on and made an appointment for me for the next time. Of course I will not be coming back! P.S. the place itself looks like it belongs in a third world country. So so disgusted with the whole visit!
Dr. Narayanan is very nice, but the cleaning was not near as thorough as most others I've had. I may not return because of this.
Very professional, friendly, and efficient. Highly recommended!
The office was a shared space by 3 other medical offices. It felt like a clinic which I didn't like. The exam was very quick and didn't seem thorough. There was no plaque removal with hand tools. I probably will not return although the staff was very friendly.
I've been to many dentists, because I usually don't like them. Friendly, personable, does her job. No pressure to get multiple treatments. Very easy to work with. Stopped going because I work in Manhattan and timing is never good, otherwise, I would see her again. Thank you.
Wonderful, pleasant, kind and knowledgable.
Friendly staff and knowledgeable doctor... Would highly recommend
I'm definitely I found this dentist in my area. The waiting area is shared with other practices and it can be a bit disorienting. I also had oral surgery here, with an oral surgeon who will come to this office, which I found very convenient. However, I have to admit I don't feel like I had as much information as I needed - for example, no one even told me the name of the oral surgeon in advance. The office staff is friendly and helpful when I had questions, but it's easy to feel a little dizzy after leaving here with so much happening in one space.
Dr. Ramya has been my family dentist for the past 2 years.... My experience this time was great as always....and my daughter loves going here.
I loved Dr. Ramya. Having just moved to the city I figured I would bounce around dentist offices with whatever deal groupon had that month. It's what I've done every year for 10 years. But having met her and given how nice every single person I encountered was, I decided I would be back in 6 months and after that, I'd be there again in 6 months. While I may never love going to the dentist office, at least this one I don't hate.
Dr. Ramya is very good and professional. I had some cavities and one of them needed a root canal. I explained to the dentist, that due to my work schedule coming in frequently would be hard. She was very understanding and did most of the procedures the same day. Would highly recommend.
I really don't understand how things work in this office. The dentist does not do deep cleaning, fillings, or any other dental work. Everything is referred to the orthodontist.
Dr. Ramya was great!!! She is very knowledgeable and explained the procedure in detail before getting started. The staff was Very friendly.
The doctor will try to do more stuff on your teeth even if u deny to make more money. Cleaning seems formality as it was not done properly by doctor.
I was in excruciating pain after seeing another dentist. She took one x-ray and was able to tell me the problem. She referred to an oral surgeon for a wisdom tooth extraction.
I was seen by Dr. Shetti. She was really fast, really efficient, but I didn't feel like I was rushed. Her bedside manner was great. I will be seeing her again.
I normally hate going to dentist appointments, but this dentist made my visit very enjoyable. She talked to me thoroughly about my concerns! I had some previous work done by another dentist which I wasn't satisfied with, she provided advice to fix issue. I also needed a filling done she was very gentle. I would recommend seeing her if your looking for a great dentist!
She was very professional, listened to my concerns, and answered all of my questions. I didn't have anything done besides x rays and a cleaning, but would definitely recommend based on based on personality.
super personal and awesome
The doctor was nice and pleasant. the decor of the place is rather confusing. There is a waiting area but it holds all of the patients for different types of occupation.
I went for regular check up and cleaning . Everything was great , The doctor also recommended to do wisdom tooth removal . I got a call back from her office on quotes . I was not able to go for it as I got busy but after 2 'months , I m trying to reach them back . I can't get hold of them , left voicemail and still trying to hear back, would ve Been great if they were more responsive
Efficient & professional
No waiting & great dentist who I can trust. Professional/courteous staff.
Great experience!!! Would highly recommend.
Took my daughter there. Friendly staff and knowledgeable doctors made her feel comfortable.
Great Dentist. Very professional & trustworthy.
I had a great experience at Strong Roots Dental. The staff was very friendly. Dr. Ramya was very patient and went through procedures very thoroughly. Would definitely go back.
I thought I was walking into a free clinic. No up-to-date technology and definitely not somewhere I would go if I had known what it was like.
The office is a bit unorganized and busy but Dr. Narayanan was good..
Very effective. Thank you.
Highly recommend Dr Ramya
The dentist was great and clearly explained options for my treatment plan. I was very comfortable and feel that I can trust her.
Could have been slightly more thorough
Dr. Ramya was great!!! She made me feel at ease and explained my treatment well. Would highly recommend.
Did a basic cleaning. Didn't seem to care much
Absolutely no wait time, was in and out which was great, but felt rushed. Went in for a cleaning, check-up and to check on a possible 5th wisdom tooth coming thru which was hurting, the assistant did the xrays and one person did the cleaning and check up.. not sure if it was the doctor or the tech.. remember a very quick and mumbled introduction that I couldn't understand and later had to ask what was going on as she went straight on to do the cleaning and did not say what was about to happen... very confusing and slightly concerning especially when just the thought of visiting the dentist sends chills down my spine. Also the cleaning felt rushed and improperly done... only used the buffer and just for one quick second on each tooth, no flossing, no scraping... The xrays were done right, however, and she did say my 5th wisdom tooth was coming thru and that I may be developing a cavity in between two of my teeth.
Friendly doctor, very quick in and out
Doctor and staff very friendly. Would definitely go back!!!
Amazing. In and out.
Wonderful experience. Helpful staff & dentist explained procedure. Would definitely recommend.
Took my 5 year old daughter for an exam, cleaning & to check an issue with one of her teeth. The dentist is great with kids and explains stuff clearly. Highly recommend her for little children.
The cleaning and examination was the quickest and least thorough one I have ever experienced. Not worth the cost.
She was great !!! I am very scared of needles, but Dr. Ramya not only calmed me down but also made the procedure absolutely painless. Love her !!!
Very good treatment. better than expected. The consultant of the doctor explained clearly what they are going to do and gave me lot of learning and options and made me decide further. The other doctor who treated me was amicable. I appreciate the treatment.
Find someone else.
Doctor Ramya was very patient in answering all my questions patiently and in detail. I felt very relieved and happy that I choose her for my dental examination.
I took my 4 yr old daughter for a cleaning and exam. While they are not a pediatric specialty, the dentist was great with kids. I was worried that my daughter would not open her mouth but they talked/played with her and were then able to complete the exam and cleaning quickly.
Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a dentist. Doctor explained the treatment clearly. Staff was friendly and gave detailed estimate prior to treatment.
Very pleased. A bit difficult to find at first but once you're there its a very pleasant experience.
I am happy with the diagnosis and analysis, but I am highly disappointed with the level of transparency on the amount owed for treatment, the estimates keep increasing exponentially on my visits. There is a lack of proper scrutiny with the insurance providers.
very nice and professional!
She was very friendly. Gave us good information. And i was comfortable enough in the first meeting.
Very sweet and a total professional. She patiently educates and informa the patient. Excellent doc. Thanks!!
The receptionist was very helpful and Dr. Narayanan was very professional and explained exactly what my care needs.
The staff at this office is very personable and took time to explain procedures to me. I also was seen immediately after filling out my paper work, which is golden in the greater NYC area.
Very knowledgeable, professional and trustworthy. Explains procedures and options clearly in simple terms. Highly recommend going to her.
