"Over 25 years of working and living on the premises has kept me close to my patients. Now that’s true 24-hour emergency service. It’s made a difference keeping appointments timely especially in inclement weather. I think it’s the personal service that keeps families coming back here year after year. They come from far and wide. Maybe it’s the unlimited free parking or the scenic picture windows. Maybe it's the occlusal guards. Sometimes I forget this is NYC. People are always hugging me & smiling. It makes me feel proud!" -Michael D. Kurtz, DDS, FASD

"Complete dental care and preventive measures can extend human life ten years!" -Dr. Charles Mayo, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota

"A bright smile is without question the most convincing form of communication" -Benton

"I read about your work in the Noveruth.JPG (21620 bytes)mber 25 issue of Newsday. I can’t express enough how wonderful it is to read about the positive efforts of New Yorkers such as yourself, instead of the usual tragic events. Your hard work and dedication have certainly inspired more community involvement among area businesses; an effort which is invaluable to our city as a whole. On behalf of all our neighbors and friends in New York , I both thank and congratulate you for all that you have accomplished , and wish you well in the future."  -Ruth Messinger, Manhattan Borough President Emeritae
