This has to be one of the best dental experiences in the country if not the world. - Kevin S.
I have visited my fair share of dental offices and Dr. Mishaan's office is in a class of it's own. Mishaan himself, is highly skilled and you can see that his attention to detail not only carries over to his work but also his staff and office space. My only hesitation in leaving a review was to keep his office a secret. However, the secret is now out. Mishaan's practice is top shelf.- Adam F

I have been a patient of Dr. Jo's for over two years. Before that, my father was my dentist for my entire life.

From The Community:

When I tell you that Dr. Monterrosso is the best dentist in New York, I am lying-- he's the best in the business!  I came to Dr. M after another dentist tried to scam me for invisilign, charging me almost 3 times what was necessary and Dr. Monterrosso not only took over my case quickly, but found the most cost-effective (yet still effective) way to do my program.  He was so understanding and funny, professional and highly skilled that I really began to wish he would also double as a primary care physician. He's just that good. - Bdc D.

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 dentists never recommends additional procedures. My son lives in California and comes to see her whenever he visits me. I would recommend her to anyone.

As a lifelong techie and video game enthusiast, I love anything that leverages technology in a creative way.

I have experience with a lot of different webapps and softwares; some of which I've used in rather unconventional ways. Right now I use my technical ability as a Growth Specialist at Voro. On a daily basis I'll use a dozen different Amazon EC2 instances, do some keyword research, conduct Data Analysis for user growth, and blog. I'm constantly thinking about ways to reach new people!
