How was your experience with the doctor?I spoke with 5 staff members throughout my visit and every person was kind, patient, and seemed really focused on making sure I was okay even though I don't have the best teeth. I have never had a dentist or dental staff explain things so well or work to make sure I was comfortable at all points of my visit before. I will be going back to Dr. Rong's office for follow-up work and have less anxiety about this than I have had at previous dentists. I highly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Rong if you have any doctor-related anxiety or are embarrassed about your teeth.

How was your experience with the doctor?Overall a good visit. Cleaning was not as meticulous as I'm used to with previous dentists/hygienists, but I'm probably on the extreme end of picky about dental care. I did like how efficient the visit was. For people who want a quick in-and-out in half an hour with good results, I would recommend this place.

How was your experience with the doctor?I can not get over how wonderful this whole office was! The receptionist ladies are friendly and welcoming right off the bat - ready and willing to help you through the difficult and often dreadful process of being a new patient and navigating your insurance plans. When I was seated to see the doctor, the techs (?) that took mt xrays and such were equally warm and pleasant. Then the fabulous Dr. came to see me and explain what was going on - she did such in a gracious and informative manner, answering any questions before i could even think them up. She gave me a timeline of my next few visits and how to manage the time between them for a healthier smile. Then the woman who did my teeth cleaning was also extremely helpful and had the gentle hand of an angel (you know, some dentists really poke at you but not this office!!) I have been terrified of the dentist ever since I was little and these ladies completely changed that mindset. Its incredible - i walked out confident and almost excited to come back and take care of things! Everyone should see Dr. Shu and her gang. Absolutely amazing.

How was your experience with the doctor?Super clean, super professional, and very progressive in their treatments. They don't offer amalgam fillings at all (a good thing in my mind), and offer the best crowns too. Although, know that there are other dentists working in her office as well, so it might not be Dr.Rong that you see.

Dr. Shu explained everything very clearly and wasn't in a rush - even though her practice was full! The hygienist did a great job too, and everyone was very polite and efficient. Definitely coming back! Dr. Shu will be my dentist of choice moving forward.

How was your experience with the doctor?An amazing dentist who cares about her patients. There are surely many great dentists in NYC-but here is only one DR. Rong. she makes you feel comfortable, she shows personal interest, she makes you feel at ease, she is gentle but yet thorough with her work. She is constantly taking classes to keep up with the industry standards, new techniques and products. she has a very kind team of staff. My wife and I have been her patients for over 4 years and are happy that she and her team are here in NYC trying hard to keep all our smiles bright.

How was your experience with the doctor?I agree with other reviews that Dr. Rong is the most competent dentist. Dr. Rong patiently answered all my questions I had with honesty regardless of how dense my questions may sound, and let me know what to expect so I had no surprise. She took time to do the head/neck exam, oral cancer screening and probing to my pocket for periodontal evaluation, something sadly none of my other dentists ever did. She also very patiently went over 4-step oral home care to make sure I know how to take care of my teeth. She is the dentist who sincerely cares about her patient's oral health more than anything else!!!

How was your experience with the doctor?my friend referred me to see Dr. Rong for my invisalign consultation. I was impressed by her knowledge and experience with invisalign. she explained to me step by step about my situation and how she was going to do to correct my problems on the iTero 3D scan model. I was impressed by the hundreds of before and after invisalign cases she has done and decided to do it right away. The fee is very reasonable and I would recommend her to all who is interested in invisalign!

How was your experience with the doctor?I haven't always enjoyed dentist visit. I usually have anxiety because of past bad experience. Dr. Rong was amazing. She was personable, attentive, genuinely interested in hearing what I had to say before she started work on me. As a result, when she started the work, I was relaxed and comfortable. She did great job as well. Very competent, intelligent and easy to work with. That's the time in my life I have said that about a dentist!!

How was your experience with the doctor?it was very easy to book a last minute sunday appointment with dr. shu ping rong's office. there was no wait time at all. my tooth pain is gone now. the only downside is if you don't have the kind of insurance they accept, it could get quite pricey. but you do what you need to do. if it's an emergency, they'll take care of it right away.

How was your experience with the doctor?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.

How was your experience with the doctor?My experience was great! I arrived and was seen almost immediately. I originally went for a cleaning and both the hygienist and the doctor were very accommodating and explained anything I was confused about. I needed to come back for more work and the office was able to book me again in that same week, which was really convenient! Upon my second visit, I was seen right away and have a wonderful experience. The doctor explained everything that needed to be done and would keep me updated throughout the procedure. The assistant that day was wonderful as well, really made the visit as smooth and easy as possible. Cannot recommend Dr. Rong and staff enough!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Shu Ping Rong is terrific. I have been going to her for several years. She and her team are compassionate, caring and do only what is necessary - even refers us to other professionals to save dollars but to get the treatment she feels prudent.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr.Shu Ping Rong actually takes the time to make sure she explains the reasoning and observation behind her diagnosis, which I greatly appreciate. Rather than just telling me what it is, she explained to me in detail every step of her train of thought. The offices are always kept very clean, and the front desk personnel are always very patient and informative. They always helped me understand my dental insurance's copay and deductible information. Thank you very much everyone!

How was your experience with the doctor?I was in for a routine dental checkup and consultation on Invisalign braces. Dr. Rong gave me her undivided attention and was very detail-oriented. I was made aware of existing and potential problems I didn't even know I had, with suggestions on how to treat and prevent them. she also gave me very detailed explanations on invisalign braces and extractions. It was a very seamless experience, and she was very understanding and patient. Thank you!!
