How was your experience with the doctor?I visited the same dentist in my home town for 28 years and I was nervous for my first dentist appointment with a new dentist. From the front desk to Dr. Culotta, the entire experience was wonderful. I wont be traveling back home for a dentist appointment anytime soon!

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been going to Dr Tim for 3 years now. He is over the top awesome. Your wait time is 0, and he is extremely thorough and professional. In a big city like NYC it’s easy to have a good experience but still feel like an anonymous patient, but With Dr. Tim this is not the case - he remembers every concern I’ve previously brought up and checks in on each of them. For example, I had a fever when I was 1 years old which cause some issues with a specific tooth. Other dentists did not take time to really examine the tooth and told me it was a cavity that needed filling, when it 100% was not! Dr. Tim even asks about my work and how things are going with XYZ that I brought up last visit (aka he isn’t just keeping good medical notes from visit to visit, but also cares about his patients as people). Long story short, I found Dr. Tim on Zocdoc bc he had great reviews and I can totally vouch that those are spot on. Couldn’t recommend him more.

How was your experience with the doctor?The office is really nice and the staff is so friendly. Once I filled out the new patient paperwork, it was less than 5 minutes before I was called. Dr. Culotta is friendly and made me feel comfortable. He went over my x-ray in detail and answered all my questions. Diana went over the financial aspect with me a helped me find an alternative payment option. I definitely recommend this office.

How was your experience with the doctor?The reviews are NOT lying... Dr. Culotta is extremely kind, professional, and made me feel very comfortable during my consultation. I've lived in New York for almost 10 years now and have been searching for a dentist I love and trust; my search is over! He was extremely thorough in going over my x-rays with me and explaining the work I needed done. I updated him on what the last dentist had told me from a visit 2 months prior but I never went back because I really disliked the dentist & office. I felt WAY more informed and understood the work I need done on my two cavities. I really appreciated his honesty, professionalism, and patience. From the moment I walked through the door, I felt comfortable and was treated kindly by all the staff. Dr. Culotta came out to introduce himself and shook my hand when I was in the waiting room filling out the forms, which was a pleasant surprise and very much appreciated. It was a great first impression. The entire staff is so polite, patient, and the office was extremely clean. Never thought I would be someone walking out of dentist appointment saying I LOVED it and loved the dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Culotta.

How was your experience with the doctor?Timothy is so lovely! I am new to the city and felt so at home in his practice. Will be going back to him regularly from now on. Very gentle and painless experience and not a particular fan of going in for even simple things like a cleaning! Hygienist who did my cleaning was very good, gentle and patient.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Culotta is an absolute sweetheart and made me feel more comfortable than any dentist in a long time. My hygienist frequently contradicted the dentist which was a bit frustrating as it's already difficult enough to know whether or not the medical advice you receive is trustworthy. Be aware that this office is less willing than some of the others I've seen to work with your insurance on your behalf, which can mean paying for procedures out of pocket and then fighting with the insurance yourself for reimbursement. Overall, it was worth it, and I would go back any time.

How was your experience with the doctor?Genuinely had such a good experience with Tim and his staff. I didn't have to wait (I actually made them wait filling out papers!), Tim is very personable and helpful (he helped explain and breakdown what he was looking at/for), insurance/payment was smooth, and I felt like a valued patient at this practice. All of the staff was pleasant and friendly. They give you a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss after your cleaning which is always nice. Honestly would recommend highly. I'm looking forward to returning in 6 months for my next cleaning!

How was your experience with the doctor?I've gone to him for the past couple of years and each time has been great. The first time I went because I was recommended by a friend and started feeling some pain in my back tooth. I ended up having a very deep cavity and I was worried it could become a root canal. It was a close call, but luckily Dr. Culotta was able to fill it in! The other dental assistance are all really gentle and everyone is so nice!
