Best doctor I have and actually enjoy going to! The experience is surprisingly relaxing! Incredibly clean and modern office with all the most current and advanced equipment. The staff here is the most important to notice. They are SO welcoming and make such an effort to know you personally. Both Doctors before performing any work have asked about how my job is going or how I have been feeling mentally and physically. Coming here, you truly feel your in the best hands with the most trusting employees. While teeth cleaning I was impressed with their care to apply Vaseline to my mouth as I️t got dry. Not once have I️ went to another dentist who’ve done this. I have always had two people working on me at once... talk about attention and productivity! I have also never had to wait for the doctor to see me. Not sure if braces are available here too but was able to get Invisalign without seeing a different doctor or orthodontist. LOVE THIS PLACE AND highly recommend for a wonderful dental experience !

Everyone in this office is incredibly pleasant and professional, from the receptionist to the dental hygienist to the doctor herself. Dr. Oh was knowledgeable and kind, taking her time with the cleaning and apologizing whenever I experienced pain. Lovely office and will definitely be back.

He fixed a tooth that another dentist cracked . I can’t even tell that it was cracked anymore whereas before it was clearly a sharp edge down the tooth. He is also very professional and empathetic. I have already scheduled a cleaning with him!

What should I expect during a dental cleaning?

A professional cleaning at Madison Avenue Dentists will begin by removing the plaque and tartar buildup from your enamel, which is difficult to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. The latest professional equipment is used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To begin, an ultrasonic device addresses large chunks of tartar and plaque with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Then, handheld tools, such as a scaler or curette, will remove any remaining buildup. Each tooth will be treated individually to get all the tartar and plaque. After the teeth have been cleaned, the enamel will be polished to remove stains. If requested or needed, a fluoride treatment may be completed following your cleaning. Contact our office in New York, NY to learn more about how to get in for a routine cleaning.
