I find Dr. Zelig and his staff to be highly professional, punctual and painless. Nay, if I could, I'd invite my friends to meet at Smile in the City on some Friday night to get anesthetized and have our teeth done together! The most invasive procedures one can imagine are done very quickly, with absolutely no pain (Dr. Zelig has a unique 3-step process to assure this), pleasant music, and a calming demeanor such that when it's over, I think, "Wow, I could do that all over again if I had to...and maybe even if I didn't."
Great service and results – I went to Dr. Zelig at Smile in the City for a dental procedure and I must say from the service to the actual results of my procedure I am more than satisfied. They create a calming and wonderful environment for the patient. The results were great and I highly recommend their services to anyone for regular dental work to cosmetic procedures.
I NEVER!!! give a thumbs up to any dentist but this place is AMAZING!!!! No one is more afraid of the dentist than me but I was so relaxed and comfortable with them that I let them remove a tooth will I was AWAKE!!!! anyone that knows me, knows, this is unheard of. I'm the type to run or start swinging.
Joseph Zelig, D.D.S., Nargiz Schmidt, D.D.S and staff are VERY!!!! professional, courteous, friendly and they will NOT!!!! judge you.
The bad news, they come with a heavy price tag but you get top of the line treatment.
As the saying goes, "You get what you pay for"
Above and Beyond – I usually hate going to the dentist, but when I arrived at Smile in the City I was immediately greeted by three of the nicest dental assistants/receptionists you could ask for. Katie, Danielle, and Melissa were very friendly and extremely personable.
The above and beyond dental experience continued as Dr. Leva met me with a great personality and gave me a thorough and painless (unlike usual) dental exam. Dr. Leva was able to notice and fix a few other problems that resulted from previous dentists I had gone to, including an old filling and a root canal that was not properly capped.
Overall, I was more than pleased with Dr. Leva, his assistants (Katie, Danielle, and Melissa), as well as the facilities at Smile in the City. I will undoubtedly continue to use Dr. Leva and Smile in the City as my dental practice of choice.
Gum graft with no pain. – I needed a gum graft on two teeth. I am from Brooklyn, and my regular dentist recommended a periodontist in Brooklyn. I went there to have a graft done for one of my teeth. I had a bad experience: The doctor had no bedside manner. And he worked at breakneck speed, causing me great discomfort.
I vowed to not go back there. But the problem was I needed a second gum graft for my other tooth.
I looked online, and found that Smile in the City had amazing reviews. I decided to give them a try.
What a difference! I went in for a consultation, and everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr. Zelig talked with me about my tooth, and explained exactly what he was going to do for my procedure. He explained to me that he was NOT going to carve skin from the top of my mouth for the graft (what a relief, as that was the worst part of my other procedure). He was going to take it from a different area that would not be as painful. He also told me he would use a laser, which would cause less discomfort.
The procedure went great! Dr. Zelig was gentle, and kept me informed of his progress as he worked.
My recovery time was much quicker than my previous procedure, and the fact that he did not cut into the roof of my mouth made eating after the procedure so much easier.
I would definitely recommend Smile in the City.

Thanks for giving me back my smile! – I am not the type of person who writes reviews, but I am so grateful to Dr. Schmidt for helping me smile again. I've always had a terrible fear of dentists, and as a result, I neglected my teeth. I am a successful person, but knowing that my mouth was in horrible condition was like a heavy weight on my mind and interfered with my quality of life. I found Dr. schmidt through the recommendation of a colleague, so I went for a consultation. The office is beautiful and clean. The staff is friendly and efficient. My treatment consisted of several implants and many crowns, but the effect it has had on my life is beyond words. I consider Dr. Schmidt to be a friend but I also have a tremendous amount of respect for her professionalism and ability to change lives. Thank You Dr. Schmidt,
Great Dentists – I have been a patient of Dr. Schmidt for about 2 years and have had extensive work done (veneers, crowns, implants). Dr. Schmidt's superior level of knowledge, technical excellence and artistic sense has given me the kind of results I could have only wished for- very natural-looking smile and never-ending compliments from people. Her attention to details, care and concern for my well being were outstanding. Superb service. Modern and spotless office. Highly recommended.
Greatest Dental Experience – Dr. Z is one of a kind!! & his office is made up of some of the most caring & gentle people I have come to know whilst being in NYC. I am from South Africa, but living in NYC as a model. Until meeting him and his colleagues, I had always avoided going to the dentist, as I HAD a terrible fear, which began as a child. I never faced it, until on a flight back to the states after a job, I felt my tooth start to ache so badly, I knew I had to see one, so when I got back I googled Dentist that do I.V sedation in NYC, as I knew this would be the only way I would have a procedure. After reading many testimonials, viewing the website & seeing pictures of his office, I could tell it offered a calming ambience & didn't come across as a cold dentistry office. I called to make an appointment. On the day of it everyone was so kind & could tell I was so nervous so spoke to me in such a way that it lifted my spirits and made me relax. It turned out I needed a root canal. Dr Z. kept his promise to me and never began anything till I was completely relaxed, he gave me beautiful calming music to listen to & then the I.V sedation. I never felt a thing! :) I was amazed, and NO swelling the next day!!! He is the BEST!! :)
The Best Dentist – Dr. Zelig did 2 implants in order to create a 3-tooth bridge. I was a little nervous about the procedure and he put me at ease saying that it "was a piece of cake". Well, it was better than a piece of cake -- now I can chew anything on it, and not worry about breaking a tooth. They are stronger than your regular teeth. First of all, there was absolutely no pain involved in placing the implants, my face never swelled, I never became black and blue -- I just carried on right after and even went back to work. Dr. Zelig is the sweetest, most caring dentist you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. If you need implants -- DR. ZELIG IS THE ONE TO SEE!!!! Dr. Zelig and Dr. Schmidt work so well together -- Dr. Zelig places the implant, then Dr. Schmidt builds a tooth or bridge on top of it -- all of this in the same office -- It's very convenient. If you're like me - and are apprehensive about having implants -- there's nothing to fear -- they feel perfectly natural and are very strong. Try Drs. Zelig and Schmidt at Smile in the City -- even for a consultatation and you'll understand why I feel so strongly about my review.
