I can not get over how wonderful this whole office was! The receptionist ladies are friendly and welcoming right off the bat - ready and willing to help you through the difficult and often dreadful process of being a new patientand navigating your insurance plans. When I was seated to see the doctor, the techs (?) that took mt xrays and such were equally warm and pleasant. Then the fabulous Dr. came to see me and explain what was going on - she did such in a gracious and informative manner, answering any questions before i could even think them up. She gave me a timeline of my next few visits and how to manage the time between them for a healthier smile. Then the woman who did my teeth cleaning was also extremely helpful and had the gentle hand of an angel (you know, some dentists really poke at you but not this office!!) I have been terrified of the dentist ever since I was little and these ladies completely changed that mindset. Its incredible - i walked out confident and almost excited to come back and take care of things! Everyone should see Dr. Shu and her gang. Absolutely amazing.

It’s so great to spend a little time with the actual dentist before the cleaning. I had all of my questions answered and was less nervous. The cleaning was just fantastic. Quick, but done carefully and thoroughly. The front desk isefficient and super nice. I’m thrilled to finally have a dental office I’ll return to again and again.

Super clean, super professional, and very progressive in their treatments. They don't offer amalgam fillings at all (a good thing in my mind), and offer the best crowns too. Although, know that there are other dentists working in her officeas well, so it might not be Dr.Rong that you see.

I arrived a bit earlier and was checked-in right away. Didn't even wait before I was accompanied in. Overall the process was very easy and fast. Dr. Shu explained everything very clearly and wasn't in a rush - even though herpractice was full! The hygienist did a great job too, and everyone was very polite and efficient. Definitely coming back! Dr. Shu will be my dentist of choice moving forward.

my friend referred me to see Dr. Rong for my invisalign consultation. I was impressed by her knowledge and experience with invisalign. she explained to me step by step about my situation and how she was going to do to correctmy problems on the iTero 3D scan model. I was impressed by the hundreds of before and after invisalign cases she has done and decided to do it right away. The fee is very reasonable and I would recommend her to all who is interested in invisalign!

An amazing dentist who cares about her patients. There are surely many great dentists in NYC-but here is only one DR. Rong. she makes you feel comfortable, she shows personal interest, she makes you feel at ease, she is gentle butyet thorough with her work. She is constantly taking classes to keep up with the industry standards, new techniques and products. she has a very kind team of staff. My wife and I have been her patients for over 4 years and are happy that she and her team are here in NYC trying hard to keep all our smiles bright.

I agree with other reviews that Dr. Rong is the most competent dentist. Dr. Rong patiently answered all my questions I had with honesty regardless of how dense my questions may sound, and let me know what to expect so Ihad no surprise. She took time to do the head/neck exam, oral cancer screening and probing to my pocket for periodontal evaluation, something sadly none of my other dentists ever did. She also very patiently went over 4-step oral home care to make sure I know how to take care of my teeth. She is the dentist who sincerely cares about her patient's oral health more than anything else!!!

I haven't always enjoyed dentist visit. I usually have anxiety because of past bad experience. Dr. Rong was amazing. She was personable, attentive, genuinely interested in hearing what I had to say before she started work on me. As a result,when she started the work, I was relaxed and comfortable. She did great job as well. Very competent, intelligent and easy to work with. That's the time in my life I have said that about a dentist!!

Dr Shu Ping Rong is one of the most professional, kind and thorough dentists I've ever met. She's a perfectionist and as a result all of her staff is great as well. She only does what's necessary and unlike many dentistsnever recommends additional procedures. My son lives in California and comes to see her whenever he visits me. I would recommend her to anyone.

The cleaning was good but I will not be returning. I called multiple times in advance to understand the finances of my cleaning because it was out of pocket. All three times I was reassured it was going to be amuch smaller amount that was definitely different from what I had to fork out in the end. So many hidden fees. They tell you it's "optional" but end up charging me 4x the amount advertised. Ridiculous!

Everyone in the office was super nice and helpful. Dr. Shu seemed rushed at our appointment, but maybe there were lots of patients that day. And while I realize I will need braces one day, I felt like she was pushingthe issue way too hard when I had other pressing dental concerns that had to be addressed first. I am still going back because I had a good experience there.

My experience was great! I arrived and was seen almost immediately. I originally went for a cleaning and both the hygienist and the doctor were very accommodating and explained anything I was confused about. I needed to come back for morework and the office was able to book me again in that same week, which was really convenient! Upon my second visit, I was seen right away and have a wonderful experience. The doctor explained everything that needed to be done and would keep me updated throughout the procedure. The assistant that day was wonderful as well, really made the visit as smooth and easy as possible. Cannot recommend Dr. Rong and staff enough!

Dr. Shu Ping Rong is terrific. I have been going to her for several years. She and her team are compassionate, caring and do only what is necessary - even refers us to other professionals to save dollars but to getthe treatment she feels prudent. My son comes from Oregon to visit and always makes time to go to Dr. Shu.

Dr.Shu Ping Rong actually takes the time to make sure she explains the reasoning and observation behind her diagnosis, which I greatly appreciate. Rather than just telling me what it is, she explained to me in detail every step of hertrain of thought. The offices are always kept very clean, and the front desk personnel are always very patient and informative. They always helped me understand my dental insurance's copay and deductible information. Thank you very much everyone!

It was a very seamless experience, and she was very understanding and patient. Thank you!!

The whole procedure was pain free from administering anesthesia, to suturingto medication prescription. Her staff was also friendly. The atmosphere in the office was warm and welcoming. I will go back for more sophisticated procedures. Highly recommend her!!

I was so excited about this appointment. I came today to finally finish my Invisalign treatment, finally finished my 15 months long journey. I had gum disease and severe malocclusion, and my oral health was deteriorating overtime, it was dr.Rong who found out the foundamental cause and recommended me the right treatment and encouraged me to take the first step. I received the Perio surgery then underwent the Invisalign treatment to fix my malocclusion. Today, my teeth are healthy again with perfect smile. This is Huge for someone like me Who was desperate at one point!!! Big thanks to dr. Rong for saving my teeth, restoring my confidence and giving my life back!!!!
