Professional Statement

I understand that many people experience high levels of anxiety when just thinking about visiting the dentist. This is especially tough for people who have neglected their oral health due to a long-standing real phobia of dentistry. In addition to the traditional dental pain-reduction techniques, I have knowledge of many stress-reducing and relaxation practices. I think you will be pleasantly surprised to find your visit to be quite enjoyable.
We offer many cosmetic dental options, including Invisalign, implant restorations, porcelain veneers, and tooth-colored fillings.
We will work with most PPO insurance plans for reimbursement and also offer monthly payment options for your convenience.
My Visiting Denture Service provides denture house calls for home-bound patients in the NY Metro area.
Choosing your dentist is so important and may even be a "breakthrough" decision for you. I don't take that lightly. Please be assured that my staff and I are here to support you with any and all of the needs or concerns you may have. I look forward to meeting you.

My Mom had an appointment with Ronald Rao, and she was very pleased with the level of service from the receptionist to the doctor. My Mom has not had much luck with dentist, but she was very satisfied with her visit.

They made me feel incredibly comfortable even though I am highly afraid of the dentist. The office manager was an absolute dream; incredibly patient and understanding. I would recommend this location to anyone who is unsure of finding someone in the area they have never been to because they made me feel so welcome. 5/5 stars for this location!

My first visit with Dr. Rao was incredibly pleasant. I've never thought of dentistry as an art form but Mr. Rao challenges that notion, bringing a sincere passion for dentistry, a fun, easy going demeanor, and an attentive listening to his patients, making an incredibly pleasant environment. I appreciated his candor coupled with absolutely no trace of pushiness. I sincerely look forward to being Mr. Rao's patient from now on!

Highly professional and patient friendly. Jessica(office manager) was very informative and took the time to explain cost and plan thoroughly. All of the medical assistance were friendly and supportive of my procedure and Dr. Rao was the absolute best. He explained exactly what he was doing and why. He made sure I was most comfortable and did a very clean job at caring for my mouth. I haven't been to a Dentist in years, bad I know, but I'm very glad I found Dr. Rao and his team.

Absolutely stellar. I ended up in his office because of a Groupon deal so I wasn't expecting the best experience but he proved me wrong. The staff as well as Dr. Rao were phenomenal. I am looking forward to my next visit...who says that about the dentist?! Also, thanks to Dr. Rao, my wisdom tooth extraction was also great, so thank you for the referral!!

Initially I was worried about going to the dentist after an unpleasant experience with another dentist. I'm so grateful to Dr. Ron Rao, DDS and his highly qualified staff. I look forward to continuing my treatment with Dr. Ron Rao and have already recommended my 4 adult children to do so as well. He is truly an asset to dentistry.

Dissapointing front end manner. The receptionist was useless and didn't greet me right away or help to ensure all my files came through from a previous dentist. I ended up having to make multiple calls cause she refused to do a part of her job, cause it would take "forever" to find, yet only took me a whole 10 minutes to do all her work. Also heard her complain about online booking. right away i had major doubts to even see the dentist due to lack of interest, politeness, and assistance from the front. I had to wait over 2 hours just to be seen. Don't let the glowing reviews fool you.

Overall- the visit in the chair was excellent. Both nurses (is that what you call dentists assistants???) were super cordial & always asked if I was ok. The did their best to make sure I was comfortable when I was experiencing pain. (I even got a goodie bag for being such a great patient!) Dr. Rao was super friendly and answered all the questions that I had in a way that I could understand. The only gripe I had was about the wait time. I actually saw him about an hour after my actual appointment time, but I think they were dealing with a patient that needed extra care. The friendliness of both the staff & doctor makes it worthwhile.

To say I was impressed by Dr. Rao and his entire staff would be a huge understatement. Everyone I encountered there was beyond friendly and made me feel comfortable and at ease. I had gone in because of a severe tooth ache, but they immediately gave me the option of getting a cleaning done as well, which I was overdue for and which saved me an extra trip and was most appreciated. Dr. Rao is so personable and friendly and explained everything clearly. I cannot recommend this dentist more highly. And his office is literally steps from the L train, very convenient! Well done Dr. Rao and staff!

Ron and his staff as some of the warmest medical practitioners I've had the pleasure of interacting with. The offices are clean without being sterile and the staff is friendly and oriented toward the patient at all times. As for Ron himself, I couldn't heap enough praise on the man. Delightful bedside manner, a commitment to dental perfection, and attuned to his patients' needs. I would recommend Ron to anybody!

There was a palpable sense of positivity in the air, everyone was friendly and cheerful. All information about my teeth and the services I would need were explained in a clear and concise manner, so I didn't feel lost or confused at all. Basically, if I had to envision my ideal visit to the dentist, it would definitely look like the one I had at Dr. Rao's.
