Verified Patient Reviews
As someone who has had the same dentist for literally all her life before moving to NYC I was a little apprehensive but decided to give Dr. Rhieu’s office a chance. It was a great visit. No wait at all with the receptionist-she was quite kind and engaging (not necessary but always a nice perk). Dental hygienist was kind, quick and great at explaining what she was doing-plus she didn’t irritate my gag reflex which is a first for me. The dentist herself was friendly, listened to my concerns and what the next steps as far as treatments were. Highly recommend!
Everyone at this office was great! I will be back over the next few months fo get more work done, and although I am not looking forward to the fillings, their bedside manner has put me at ease and I expect it to be a more painless practice than I have experienced at other offices. Would recommend!
Wonnie is amazing!! I could not recommend her more. I normally dread going to the dentist because I get claustrophobic in the chair but she made it so bearable it was almost pleasant. She broke the cleaning down into short sessions with brief breaks in between, and would let me know how long until the next break. She is quick, efficient, and super nice! :)
It was everything I hope for in a dentist - superior technical expertise, comforting manner and friendly disposition. And the office is beautiful -- a plus.
Dr.Rhieu is very aggressive in her assessment and treatment plan. After seeing Dr Rhieu, a a friend who works at a dentist recommended I get a second opinion. I had two additional dentists (with no affiliation to each other) look at my x-rays. Both dentists came to the same conclusion - that I did not need any of the fillings Dr. Rhieu prescribed. Unfortunately, I had already gotten several of the fillings before I was able to check in with the other dentists. If one sees, Dr Rhieu I would recommend you always check with other dentists otherwise you will get fillings you don't need. I would not go back.
Dr. Rhieu is the best dentist that I've ever had. She is extremely professional and friendly, which puts you at ease getting into the chair. She does not rush through the exam and provides excellent advice for best at-home practices. Her support staff is very helpful and professional as well.
Dr. Rhieu is one of the most considerate and caring doctors I have ever met. She is always patient and thorough (willing to answer all questions as well as finding the best solutions to my problems / concerns). Her staff is always friendly as well. Glad I finally found such a great dentist to go to - thank you to the whole team always!
Love Dr. Rhieu. Kind, efficient, thorough, straightforward. Highly recommend :)
Best Dentist Ever! Highly recommend.
Dr. Rhieu was excellent. In addition to being friendly and professional, she actually took the time to explain what she was doing at each step of our check-up, and encouraged questions to better inform and influence my own dental hygiene habits. Higgly recommended!
She's really good, very friendly and accommodating. Always lets me know pricing for any nonessential or noncovered items (flouride, retainers, etc.), and guilts me juuuuuuust the right amount when I accidentally miss a 6-month check up. The wait is very quick and the front desk is friendly.
Best. Dentist appointment. Ever. Just go.
Loved Dr. Rhieu! She was quick, thorough, and very friendly.
I love how she explains everything in a concise manner for me to understand how to properly take better care of myself.
General check, x-rays and (deep)cleaning was five times more than my previous doctor, with similar care and bedside manners...
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Ensured the treatment was explained properly and it was a positive patient experience.
DR. Rhieu was fantastic. I was nervous about how much work I potentially needed done and she was great at explaining everything and giving me different options. Highly recommend!
She's incredible. So positive, clear, and easy...as is her hygienist (best cleaning I've had).
I hate going to the dentist and Dr. Rhieu made it pain free and easy. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Rhieu was very thorough and took her time. She gave me suggestions and options. Although I came in for a simple teeth cleaning, she checked for everything and told me there were some things that needed fixing. I know if I went to a different dentist, they would've just cleaned my teeth and sent me on my way. She was great and I would recommend her to all my friends.
Dr. Wonnie was extremely personable and now a must visit for my 6 month cleanings. I had put this appointment off for quite some time, but she and her staff made it incredibly easy. She walked me through every step of the process and warned me of any possible discomfort; of course there was none bc she performed every step thoroughly and with a great amount of care. She even demonstrated how I need to brush my teeth gentler. I have already recommended her to several people because going to the dentist shouldn't be a dreaded thing you continually put off - it should be almost...enjoyable.
Dr. Rhieu is simply amazing! I've never had a more through exam or cleaning in my LIFE! She's super sweet and a true professional! She has a life time patient with me! Not to mention she has the most perfect teeth ever!
It's not the easiest thing realizing that you have a decent amount of work to do in order to get your teeth and gums back to healthy but Dr. Rhieu was professional, thorough, and very detailed about next steps and the priority that each step should be given. I walked out of the office with a very doable treatment plan. Thanks!
Awesome. Highly recommended. Thanks so much Wonnie!
Dr. Rhieu was the sweetest dentist I have ever met. She was incredibly friendly and professional throughout my visit and made my experience unforgettable. I went for a checkup and cleaning and was brought in immediately upon checking in. After getting X-rayed, I had to wait a bit for Dr. Rhieu but that wasn't her fault - I was just 15 minutes early for my appointment. She talked me through the whole process and let me know exactly what she was doing the whole time. At the end, she even gave me a goody bag with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rhieu and already told all my coworkers to go see her. She's wonderful!
Came highly recommended . On time and very focused . 2 cavities filled no pain at all in 45 minutes.
Sadly, Dr. Rhieu wasn't able to give me a cleaning when I had hoped for one, BUT that was my fault. I thought my insurance info had been sent through zoc doc, but it wasn't. I was so grateful that she took the time to call my ins to be sure I was covered. By the time she got off the phone, she still squeezed in a very thorough exam, & talked for a long time with me about many many difficult issues in my mouth. While I haven't undergone any treatments yet, I feel confident moving forward with her as my doctor.
I waited less than a minute (seriously!) to see Dr. Rhieu. She is incredibly professional, polite, and fun to be around. It's rare when your dentist makes you feel good about yourself! I'd highly recommend Dr. Rhieu.
Fantastic! Couldn't be any better. She was also very nice.
Always a pleasure to go to the dentist. Dr. Rhieu and her team are professional, prompt, knowledgeable and have excellent bedside manners!
Great doctor. Doesn't rush and takes time to answer all of your questions. Very friendly staff.
I almost never leave reviews but I love Wonnie Rhieu! She helped me identify a gum issue others had missed and is always very thorough in her exams. She is also really nice--I hate going to the dentist and she always makes me feel comfortable and like I'm in good hands.
Dr. Rhieu was very professional and helpful. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to family and friends.
Dr Rheu is an excellent dentist and a very nice person. Good communication and very upfront about procedures, processes and costs.
First appointment for a routine check up. Mrs Rhieu was on time, both friendly and very professional. She conducted a thourough evaluation / cleaning, and I feel confident nothing has been left aside. The location and equipment seem to be brand new. I will certainly go there going forward.
Very attentive and approachable. Made the whole process comfortable as she explained what she was doing every step of the way. Made some recommendations for me as well and told me the costs of everything upfront; I really appreciated the transparency.
She's wonderful. Very professional, courteous, and direct.
I was a bit nervous since its been years since my last dental checkup, but she was really nice, and really clear about everything that's wrong with my teeth, and gave me a detailed plan of following visits, pricing included. Very efficient!
She was amazing - very patient and explained things every step of the way which really helped me to remain comfortable.
She is amazing!!
Dr. Rhieu has a wonderful bedside manner and did a fantastic job calming an extremely nervous patient,
She's wonderful! I've always dreaded going to the dentist. But Dr. Rhieu was extremely informative, helpful and just has a lovely charisma that makes you forget you're even sitting in that chair.
Dr Rhieu and her staff are friendly, professional and fantastic. She is very thorough, and explains everything very well. I'm terrified of dentists but she was always mindful of keeping pain and discomfort to a minimum. I highly recommend her for your next visit.
She seemed very knowledgeable and patient. Only had a cleaning done so far but she did a wonderful job. Will know more when I get my fillings and crown next visit.
She is truly professional and really knows what is doing , with honesty and simplicity. Very polite and the whole procedure was made in a very clean and well organized environment. The entire office crew welcomes you, with sympathy in a comfortable lobby. I highly recommend.
She is amazing!! So glad I found her.
Dr. Rhieu's beside manner is fantastic--it was an absolute pleasure to be in her office! She and her staff made sure to get me out of the chair in time for a movie I was seeing after my appointment. When leaving the office, they provided me with comprehensive list of all the procedures I would need on my next visit. All in all, I will certainly be coming back to Dr. Rheue!
My 9-year old son said "Doctor Wonnie is awesome!" :)
Excellent experience! Will arrange for my husband and son to see Dr. Rhieu as well.
I was concerned that I might have a cavity in one of my teeth, having felt new sensitivity and seen a darkened area within the tooth, and Dr. Rhieu confirmed the presence of the cavity, drilled it, filled it and gave me a cleaning in 45 minutes. Highly attentive and professional.
Great dentist. Really walked me through each step and clearly explained everything.
Excellent bedside manner. Made me feel better when I was clearly nervous about something.
Great Doctor !
Excellent visit with Dr. Rhieu. She was courteous, kept me in the loop of how I was doing; and what I should follow-up on. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a great dentist!
Possibly the best dental visit I've ever had
It has been about 6 years since my last dentist appt. I was a little nervous and thought I would be scolded. But, Dr Wonnie Rhieu was so nice and made me feel super comfortable. Everyone there is super nice too. I feel lucky that I chose to go to her, and I'll be going again in 6 months. :)
Wonnie and her dental assistant were great! Very professional, informative and answered all my questions. Wonnie made sure I was comfortable during the entire cleaning process and was extremely thorough. I would definitely recommend!
Dr. Rhieu was incredibly friendly and thorough - looking forward to my next cleaning with her!
She was incredibly friendly and personable. It makes a huge difference that she performs the cleanings herself. Highly recommended!
Dr. Rhieu was amazing. So friendly, and very welcoming. I would highly recommend her. And her staff is as lovely as her!
Very very nice, professional and guides you through each part of the process!
Dr Rhieu was wonderful! She was extremely patient with me as I was a little nervous about my first visit in a very long time. She was gentle and caring and made me feel confident about my treatment plan.
Dr. Rhieu was both thorough and thoughtful and her office staff is as sweet as she is.
Very detailed exam and procedure. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Rhieu made my appointment extremely pleasant. She was friendly and explained all the procedures in a clear and understandable manner. I didn't feel pressured into purchasing any of the services she recommended. While the procedure itself was painful, her kind words of encouragement made me feel less scared. I already recommended her to a friend of mine who is also looking for a dentist.
Dr. Rhieu is a great Dentist! She made me feel comfortable throughout all my visits, and was very informative when it came to answering questions. Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a Dentist.
Dr. Rhieu was extremely patient, thorough and helpful throughout my entire appointment. Highly recommended! All staff members were equally as accommodating.
She was Awesome. I had some gum pain behind one of my teeth for about a week or two and she figured out the problem and it is completely gone now. Very thorough and knowledgeable. Very kind as well. Will definitely be coming back.
Wonnie is so nice and knowledgeable, extremely polite, friendly, attentive, and was super helpful in answering my questions. Also no wait time! Amazing!
My visit with Dr. Rhieu was great! She explained everything in such detail. She made sure that I understood and was comfortable with the work she was about to perform. She's was very engaging throughout the entire process. I've been looking for a dentist and found Dr. Rhieu on ZocDoc. I'll be honest - I didn't really read any of her reviews. I just looked at the average stars that was on her profile which was just about 5 at the time and decided I would give it a go. Needless to say, I was very happy with my decision.
I didn't feel like she was trying to use my insurance and force me to do procedures I didn't think were necessary. In the past I've had dentists attempt to do everything based on what my insurance covered. I will gladly be back in 6 months.
Wonderful experience. Had a dental emergency and got an appointment the next day. Highly recommended!
Best dentist I've been to! Very knowledgable, friendly and outgoing. Easy in-and-out!
I have had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Rhieu this week and she was professional, knowledgeable, and patient. Recommend!
Dr Rhieu was so knowledgable and professional. Her office was very top of the line and clean. She informed me of all of my issues and let me know of all the different options. I'm scared of needles and she gave me my injection pain free! She made dentistry as comfortable as could be for me. I def recommend her to my family and friends!
Dr. Rhieu was great! I hate seeing the dentist but she made it so easy and was helpful in explaining what exactly she was doing/thinking during the appointment. I would absolutely recommend her!
As a new patient, I was very pleased with Dr. Rhieu's bedside manner and her quick assessment of what type of treatment I needed. Ruth was also very nice and helped with the preliminary X-ray work. The location was breathtaking at the 69th floor of the Chrysler building and only 5 mins away from my office. I will definitely be back!
Dr. Rhieu was fantastic. She was very thorough in asking about my history and concerns and she even did the cleaning herself (I'm used to a hygienist doing the cleaning. She gave me helpful information for follow-up/next steps and I really appreciated how kind she was. There was a wait because the internet was down (the entire appt took over an hr), but the Business Manager gave me a Starbucks card and I sincerely appreciate the gesture in lieu of having to wait.
By far the best dental experience I've had. I've had a few different dentists, but she is by far the best. Professional, patient and goes into detail. More dentists should aspire to be like this. I would give 6 stars, but only have room for 5. Great experience!
Wonnie's great- I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Rhieu clearly cares about her patients as people. She is kind, professional, very knowledgable, patient and exudes warmth and compassion. Highly recommended!
She was great
She is so fabulous - so friendly, great doctor
Excellent and professional service. She was courteous and was generally interested in getting me the best plan for my teeth that was available! She is one of the best dentists I have been to. I was nervous about trying a new place, but her practice and office was well put together, and she has definitely earned my trust and likelihood to return is 100%.
I had a very enjoyable experience with Dr. Rheiu. She was very calm, explained everything very thoroughly, and was very gentle on my teeth. I will 100% be back in 6 months for my next semi-annual cleaning! Thanks Dr. Rheiu!
I think I just had one of the best dental visit experience. I had a really good first impression of Dr. Rhieu. She was very knowledgeable, approachable and I believe my teeth are in good hands under her care. I will be referring her to a bunch of accountants.
Very professional and helpful. Made me very comfortable and her explanation of the status of my teeth was very helpful in my continuing to take care of my teeth.
Dr Rhieu is one of the most personable people I have ever met and she is clearly a very talented dentist as well. So glad I've found a great new dentist here in the city.
I had a great experience with Dr.Rhieu. She's incredibly personable and I was made comfortable as she walked me through all the procedures and her recommendations.
I thought Dr. Rhieu was great. Totally understood that I was there on break from work. She was thorough, nice and explained everything. The only part of the appointment that I was disappointed on was her assistant. She wasn't as accommodating as Dr. Rhieu and when taking x-rays appeared more annoyed than anything else. She even accidently hit me in the head with the machine. Maybe she was just having a bad day but other than that it was great, totally made up for it.
I always enjoy seeing Wonnie. I feel in good hands, she is careful and responds to your questions and needs. Best dentist experience I had so far in my life.
Very professional, warm, and thorough were my impressions of Dr. Rhieu. The service level she and her staff offered put me at ease immediately. Dr. Was very candid about my concerns and I left feeling in competent hands. It was easy to feel comfortable right away. I'm looking forward to my next appointment actually and who ever says that about the dentist? Ps the office is very conveniently located and it's true, the view is georgeous.
Wonnie Rhieu, DDS,MS is absolutely the best dentist that anyone could ask to have. She is honest, comforting and extremely professional who gives her patients great care and attention! I am so happy with my choice to make an appointment with Wonnie Rhieu through ZOCDOC.
Dr Rhieu is the most wonderful Dentist EVER! She is very nice and through, she lets you know her every move and asks you if it's too painful or sensitive. I feel really babied for the first time at a dentist and the experience was wonderful. I never felt so comfortable at an office & now looking forward going to the dentist. This office also is very professional in terms of pricing and suggestions, she explains anything pricing and even prints out a price list before my next appt. Doctor tells me no pressure on a suggested crown. I feel well taken care of and not them trying to just make money like other places. Highly suggested!!! and oh did I mention the view? it is gorgeous, such a treat to go up there!
She was great, very considerate, polite and good at what she does
It was great. I had a pleasant time and she's very nice.
Dr. Rhieu was really informative and took time to explain everything to me. The view from the 69th floor of the Chrysler Building made up for the little wait time.
Dr. Rhieu was incredibly friendly and personable! She made my visit to the dentist very pleasant and no longer than it needed to be. All the staff in the office were no different. I've had dentists in the past be very "trigger-happy" with the extra costly/uncomfortable procedures, however Dr. Rhieu was very honest and open about any potential issues and has more of a watch now/act later attitude.
I have been loyal to my dentist for almost 15 years. I thought the care he gave me was excellent. When he moved his practice, I decided to try Dr. Rhieu. Oh my lord... what a difference! She is the best dentist I have ever been to. Great bedside manner, modern equipment and the gentlest touch when cleaning. I seriously can't say enough good things about my appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Rhieu.
Going to the dentist is not something you would normally look forward to but I actually enjoyed my appointment with Dr. Rhieu. I went in for my annual check up and cleaning - she took her time with the x-rays, explained everything in detail in a manner that was easy to understand, and laid out all the options for treatment for me. She's thorough and professional but also so easy to talk to. As an extra perk, her office on the 69th floor of the Chrysler building has awesome views of the city as well. I would highly recommend her if you are in the Midtown East area.
Very personable and friendly. Gets you in and out quickly, while still making you feel comfortable. Always answers all questions, and is great with explaining things. View from the office is also super cool! Highly recommended.
Excellent dentist- very thorough and communicative!
She is so fantastic! Super friendly, so helpful and professional -- addresses every question and concern. I'd recommend Dr. Rhieu to everyone!
I have nothing but nice things to say about Dr. Rhieu and the whole office staff. Everyone was nothing but friendly and helpful. The office was clean, and my visit was as pleasant as going to the dentist can be.
Dr. Rhieu made me feel at ease despite the situation. After seeing two dentists before her that kept telling me the only viable options were extremely invasive ones, Dr. Rhieu provided me with an alternative that would save me money, time and pain. :) She is genuine, smart and puts her patients first. All around rockstar of a dentist!
I am very critical with dentists but Dr. Rhieu earned my trust and I am very happy with her work so far.
Dr. Rhieu was my first dentist in NYC, and I won't be going to any other dentists. She was very friendly and upbeat, and she made sure I was comfortable throughout the appointment. The office was small, but really nice. Virtually no wait time (I went at about 4:30). Highly recommended!
She is very professional and explains all your options. Updated office with great views! I will definitly will recommend.
She's very courteous and professional. Was very quick to diagnose my issue. By the way...amazing views of NYC!!! Great location
Dr. Rhieu was extremely professional, pleasant, and made the appointment fly by. Since the office is located in the Chrysler Building, the views are pretty ridiculous too, which is a nice plus. Go see Dr. Rhieu—she'll have you smiling in no time.
Dr. Rhieu was fantastic -- I was a few minutes early for my appointment and they took me back immediately. Zero wait time and I was in and out in under an hour. The rest of the staff were really friendly, thorough and my teeth feel great now!
Dr. Rhieu was smart, informative, professional, outgoing, and beautiful. The office and rest of the staff were pretty nice too. I've definitely found my dentist in NYC!
very professional, all staffs are very nice and the appointment was smooth and efficient.
I really don't like going to the dentist & was very nervous. She is sensitive, professional and I felt taken care of in an excellent manner!
Dr. Rhieu was thorough, efficient, and above all, very friendly. I dread dentist appointments, but she made me feel at ease. Definitely recommended!
She is the best dentist I've ever had! My tooth was bothering me and I called her office to get an earlier appointment and she offered to see me the next day. I have a fear of going to the dentist and she was really friendly and made the experience very enjoyable (well at least as enjoyable as going to the dentist can be!).
Dr. Rhieu went above and beyond. Prior to my first visit, I experienced severe pain over the weekend. Dr. Rhieu kindly took my call and helped me through it. Her office made accommodations to see me immediately and her care was thoughtful and skilled.
This was actually the best dentist visit I've had in my entire life. Just went for a routine cleaning, and yes, someone poking at my gums was still slightly uncomfortable, but it was the first time EVER that I didn't feel like a dentist was attacking my mouth. It was also the speediest and least-foul-tasting cleaning I've ever had. On top of all that, Dr. Rhieu was very friendly. Plus, when there was a weird insurance snafu, she made sure I didn't pay anything extra and gave me a 10% discount for the hassle.
Overall very professional and made me feel very comfortable. She was also efficient. Thanks!
