What People are Saying

The hygienists are all terrific; the practice is staffed 7 days a week so emergencies are easily accommodated. As others have noted, they are friendly, efficient, welcoming and transparent in their pricing and work with you and your insurance company to make sure you are making the most of it. All in all, the way dental care SHOULD be, but rarely is; I can recommend highly!!!
Ed H.
The staff at CPW Dentistry is incredibly kind and thoughtful; they sincerely care about their clients and do everything they can to make your experience positive. I love that they are open on weekends are always able to accommodate my family's busy schedule. They provide so many "perks" and excellent rewards programs for their clients. They are definitely the best dental practice that I have visited.
Laura E.
My fear of seeing a dentist because of Covid was completely resolved after my visit to CPW. The attention to screening, PPE, and the installation of an amazing air filtration system throughout the offices relieved my anxiety.
Ruth D
This isn't just the nicest dentist I've ever been to. It's the nicest business, period, bar none.
Helen P.
Everyone I have interacted with at CPW is friendly, kind, helpful and knows how to clean and fix the hell out of some teeth. I used to have serious anxiety about going to the dentist and this place helped me get over that completely just by being warm, friendly and treating me like royalty. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.
Maya W.
I have spent my life going to 'the best of the best' in dentistry and CPW is certainly among the best of the best of the best. If only all dentistry practices were like this. A wonderful practice that truly cares about patients.
Liz N.
I am a person who had not been to a dentist in decades because of some trauma. The team at CPW were great at insuring that I was comfortable and explained the procedure to reassure me and keeping me at the center of the work at hand. TRULY A PATIENT-CENTERED OFFICE, soothing hands, a listening ear, a friendly smile that greets you at the door. I have yet to experience such caring team in the healthcare field.
Antonio M.
Is it possible to be passionate about a dental office? I have been celebrating this practice to my friends openly like it's the next Hamilton.
Phoebe L.
The past three years in their care, I have regained trust in dentists. I am going through a long treatment that I can’t imagine doing in anyone else's hand. This is a place where you will be taken care of as an individual regardless of your fears. I truly believe they work hard to make sure they do what’s best for the patient.
Catalina L.
I love love love coming here. This practice is like a peaceful little haven in New York. Everyone is friendly and the office is calm and homey. They send you texts to remind you of your appointment and they are open after work hours and on weekends so you don't have to be stressed about missing work to get your teeth cleaned. And of course the dental care is excellent!
Kerry E.
I am a heart doctor in Manhattan, and having never needed significant dental work until recently, knowing the importance of good dental health, I heavily researched various dental clinics throughout NYC, wanting to know that the best would be drilling into my teeth. Needless to say, Central Park West Dentistry (CPWD) stood out among the rest, and did not disappoint. After 5 appointments to address my dental needs, along with sending my wife who also needed extensive dental work, and my 2 young children for routine cleanings, I have nothing but the best to say about CPWD.
Justin T.
I wish every service, office, restaurant -- everything -- in NYC was this wonderful!
Jodi V.
I had been going to the same dentist, a very well respected one on the Upper West Side, for years, but after visiting Central Park West Dentistry I realized just how much I had been missing out on.
