I can not believe how awesome he is! He has this calming personality that made me feel so comfortable. When he tried to explain things to me, he made sure I understood everything he said. I have never felt more comfortable talking to a professional in my life! He will not disappoint!

He was absolutely amazing! I came in for a second opinion after being told I needed a filling done, even had my X-rays sent over and he not only told me I didn’t need a filling done but didn’t charge me. He’s extremely honest and is now my new dentist!!

Dr. Ricci is always very professional and helps you find the right dental treatment plan for you. I usually hate going to the dentist, but with Dr. Ricci I know I'm always in good hands! The office is always very clean as well, and I've never had to wait more than 15 minutes before being seen. Definitely recommend him to all my friends!

This is about as good as a dentist trip gets, all staff are extremely friendly and professional. Dr Ricci is thorough, calm, professional and clearly a very knowledgable dentist. I go here for check ups, cleaning and also had my wisdom teeth out here which was completely pain free with very little swelling or bleeding (rare). Couldn’t recommend more!

I have not been to the dentist in maybe two years after having an awful experience. Once I scheduled my appointment, I experienced a lot of anxiety (where I even considered canceling my appointment); however, within minutes of entering the office, it shortly subsided. I was greeted by energetic, professional, and personable staff and my wait time was only 15 minutes, which included the time it took to fill out paperwork. I had also scheduled an appointment for my six year old niece, who was just as anxious. In regard to comforting a six year old at a dentist visit (which can be quite challenging), the staff were exceptionally patient. She was seen by Dr. Cambria who was extremely sweet and knowledgeable. She also gave her an adorable goody bag! My appointment was scheduled with Dr. Ricci. Upon meeting Dr. Ricci, I expressed my apprehensions around visiting a dentist and my prior experience. He really took his time in answering all of my questions and concerns and it was clear that he prioritizes patient comfortability. Unfortunately, I wound up having a cavity which required a filling. Before doing anything, Dr. Ricci explained everything and continuously checked in with me to see how I was doing. There were even moments where I had forgotten that I was even at a dentist office! Both Dr. Ricci and Dr. Cambria are professional and amazing! I live in Brooklyn, but traveling to Manhattan is worth it!!!

Fantastic dental office. I already booked an appointment for my boyfriend. Everyone is super friendly and really made me feel special. Danielle ,the receptionist. was so helpful. I brought my medical card instead of dental. She figured out my dental insurance plan fast and cheerfully. . Dr. Ricci was wonderful, funny, and easy to talk to. He listened to my concerns and took the time to take photos of my teeth and show me areas on my back molars I was wearing down from grinding in my sleep. He is also very honest. I booked my appointment because I thought I had cavities.Turns out it was just stain from coffee. My cleaning was thorough quick and painless. All the stains are gone. My teeth feel so smooth and clean and look much whiter. Love the hefty goodie bag at the end of the visit. I will certainly be returning.

Love Dr. Ricci and only left because my insurance changed. I know this is kind of a minor thing to call out in the scheme of things, but he gives out electric toothbrushes after each important - which always made my day.

The appliances were not covered in a sterile wrap like what I am used to at a dentist's office. In the room, there was visible dust on some of the surfaces. It did not have the typical sterile clean smell that most doctor's offices that I want to be at would have. He did not wear gloves to handle my x-ray pieces prior to putting them in my mouth and when he did wear gloves, he did not seem to change them in between activities. It did not feel sterile or up to date. His teeth cleaning method was questionable as he was "experimenting" with a new tool that makes the cleaning time 10 minutes versus the usual 1 hour. My mouth feels like I ate too many sour patch kids today so I don't know what he did in there but it was not done with extreme care. He told me I needed a silver filling, which to my knowledge and research is an outdated, if not, risky option... he seemed insistent if not pushy about me scheduling a follow-up with him to get it filled... He seems nice and I am sure he is a great person but he was not comforting to be around as my dentist. The people that work there are kind and great but I would avoid this location and I am getting a second opinion about my cavity.

Would absolutely recommend Dr. Ricci - very kind staff, efficient service, a clean office and an honest, "conservative" approach (i.e. not upselling you on treatment you might not necessarily need). And they use an ultrasonic water jet rather than that dreaded metal scraper. Look forward to my follow up in 6 months.

Dr. Ricci was extremely thorough and informative during my cleaning. He went above and beyond when he noticed a white mass in my x-rays, going over it with an endodontist and referring me to his office just to be safe. Not to mention he is an interesting man with a great sense of humor and stellar wildlife photography skills. If I still lived in the area I would definitely still be a client!

Would highly recommend Dr. Ricci. He always answers any questions I have very thoroughly, and advised a mouth guard which has completely gotten rid of my jaw pain. The process, which I expected to take months, took only a few weeks. You also get an electric toothbrush with every visit - a nice perk!

Dr. Ricci and the rest of his staff were accommodating and friendly. Dr. Ricci's office has new technology that made my dental cleaning a breeze- especially because my teeth are highly sensitive. I would highly recommend coming here for dental work. I also appreciated that no one tried to upsell to me and made the experience comfortable.
