Tina Tong is by far the best dentist I have ever had. The best most painless cleanings and the friendliest most relaxing care. I never take the time to write reviews, but she deserves it. Cannot recommend anymore. My only fearis that she becomes too busy with new patients and her incredibly flexible appointment times start to disappear.

I never wait long at Smile Arts. My appointment starts right away and it's always an enjoyable trip to the dentist. I like that the x-rays are displayed in front of me immediately when they are imaged so I can seewhat is going on with my teeth. Dr. Tong's bedside manner is wonderful. She's so bubbly and positive that it puts me at ease right away. Love the new office space as well!

She was great very aware of her patient's sensitivity. I personally suck it up, but knowing if I needed a break or I was in pain whatever was good. She went through my X-ray's and everything she was doing. Listened tomy needs/desires and advised me accordingly and took care of what I needed.

Smile Arts is the best dental office I've been to in NYC, LA, Philadelphia and Houston. Service is excellent and Dr. Tong is the most pleasant, careful and tranquil dentist I have ever met. Dr. Tong and Smile Arts make atrip to the dentist feel like a trip to the spa. And their office is amazing! Check out the waterfall.

Dr. Tong was amazing! I have very sensitive teeth, and hadn't gone to a cleaning in a while so the thought of a dental cleaning was a bit daunting. Dr. Tong made the process as enjoyable as it can be. Shewas professional, patient and careful. My dental hygienist was great too.

I feel nervous about people meddling with my teeth, so much so that I have been seeing my dentist in CA for the past 8 years I've lived in NYC. I saw Dr. Tong based on a friends' recommendation. Dr. Tongwon my trust immediately. She appears to be well-trained and professional, prioritizing patient well-being.
