How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Orbach is the best dentist on the planet.   He is very knowledgeable and has a very soft touch.   He takes a very conservative approach and will only do procedures when necessary.  He is also very easy to talk to and will take the time to explain things.

How was your experience with the doctor?TL;DR: Dr. Orbach is one of the best dentists/prosthodontists I've been to. Make an appointment here and skip the stress of looking for a new dentist in the city.Full disclosure - I have been going to Dr. Orbach's office since I was about 10 (or even younger). My mom, brother, and sister all go here and I've even gotten a few friends on board. The longer story: I don't trust any other dentists or hygienists. I've stuck with Dr. O through moving to Seattle for law school and now living in DC for the last few years because I'm wary of other dentists. (I maybe saw one dentist while in Seattle but only because I had a weird toothache). I plan my dentist visits to the office while I'm home visiting my family. He's the only dentist I trust to be really honest with me and not try to push anything that I don't need. The office is welcoming and up-to-date. Each room has a great view of Central Park and if you're trying to keep your mind off the fact that you're even at the dentist there are also TVs and computers that you can use while waiting or while getting dental work done. In keeping up with the latest technology, Dr. Orbach also has an easy set up for getting x-rays - maybe I'm traumatized from my old orthodontist but this seems like a walk in the park with how seamless it all is. I also appreciate being able to see my record on his screen and chat about my dental care plan while seeing what Dr. Orbach is also looking over. The hygienists in the office are fantastic. I saw Fran the other day and had a pleasant experience. I have sensitive teeth and dread cleanings but I think if you have a hygienist that works for you then stick with them!  All of the hygienists in the office are friendly and accommodating. It is always great to see everyone in the office. It is a small team so you'll get to know the staff and Dr. Orbach pretty well. Be kind to the front staff they do a lot to make the office what is and work hard to make patients lives easier! (It also doesn't hurt to bring them treats now and then!). Just know if you go see Dr. Orbach you're not just signing up for a new dentist but a life long relationship with folks who care about your health and well being!

How was your experience with the doctor?I thought Dr. Orbach was great - really good dentist and friendly, approachable person. I received high quality, efficient care. Unfortunately my experience overall could have been better. Despite confirming 3x that they were in-network and took my insurance plan, I found out after the procedure that they were not (my insurance confirmed they had not filed paperwork to be in-network with my particular plan since 2008). I doubt it was intentional but it did wind up being more expensive than expected. Lesson learned for me, call your insurance first.

How was your experience with the doctor?Every single person in the office was warm. They were very clear and descriptive about what would ensue and etcetera. They each introduced themselves as soon as you came in. Very comfortable office. I had an emergency appointment, but am considering keeping him as my primary dentist because the experience was exceptional.

How was your experience with the doctor?I chipped my front tooth when I was a kid. My first bonding lasted for 10 years, and since then two dentists have "fixed" it, but it never looked right. Dr. Orbach is an artist! My tooth looks great and no one can tell it was ever chipped. :)
