Not too long ago, I had a tooth emergency, and at the time, I didn’t have a regular dentist. I’d driven by Dr. Ost’s office often while on my way to my job, and they were in my network, so I decided to give them a chance. I called on a Monday morning and was able to be seen that same afternoon. The office was tidy, calm, and inviting. I saw Dr. Ost that day. He was very friendly and personable. He even took the extra time to explain what he’d seen on my x-rays. He reattached my bridge, which had come loose, and gave me a complete exam and cleaning. I am happy to say that I now have a regular dentist. I cannot recommend Dr. Ost and his staff enough.
Dr. Ost performed a cleaning and examination for me today. He was meticulous and knowledgeable. He is the best dentist in the Glen Head area by far. I highly recommend him.
I am beyond lucky to have found Dr. Ost. I had gone to a different dentist because that practice was the only one who would accept my insurance. It was a big office with a large staff and a revolving door of patients. They were aggressive with their treatment; I almost cried in the chair. They also told me that my daughter would need costly dental work done immediately. She’s 10. I decided to switch insurance companies and go to Dr. Ost. I wanted my children to have a kind and gentle dentist. Dr. Ost told me that my daughter wouldn’t need braces until after she had lost all her baby teeth. My 15-year-old son has been impressed by Dr. Ost as well. He had a comfortable experience and wasn’t anxious at all. Dr. Ost is the only dentist in the Glen Head area my fiance will go to. I love Dr. Ost and his staff so much, I have recommended them to all my family and friends.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Ost for a couple years now, and every visit has been a pleasant experience. When I was a child, my parents changed doctors frequently, so I never had a regular doctor. Now that I’m on my own, I am at ease knowing that Dr. Ost is a dentist I can rely on. Dr. Ost is very friendly, which is important to me. He pays attention to detail and knows his craft well. He has educated me about simple ways to improve my oral hygiene and dental health. In the back of my mind, I knew I should be flossing, but he’s the first person to really help me understand the importance of it. Seeing Dr. Ost has been the least stressful experience imaginable; each of the procedures I’ve had done has had positive outcomes. If you’re looking for an inviting and honest dentist, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ost.
I had the best possible experience with Dr. Ost. I’d been procrastinating and hadn’t been to the dentist in a while because I have very sensitive gums, and I really don’t like people messing around in my mouth. However, everything went smoothly. I was so impressed. Without a doubt, I give Dr. Steven Ost my highest recommendation!
What more can I say about Dr. Ost and his team than they are the absolute best! Dr. Ost and his staff are fantastic. I’ve always feared dental appointments and procedures, but Dr. Ost and his staff made me feel very at ease from the second I entered the office. They gave me a quick tour of the facility, which was very clean. They reviewed all the steps that needed to be done with my teeth and helped me set up convenient follow-up appointments. I cannot recommend Dr. Ost enough.
My first trip to Dr. Ost’s office was an emergency appointment because I was experiencing severe tooth pain. Dr. Ost’s receptionist was able to schedule me immediately. The staff is very kind, accommodating, and professional. I was even given a tour of the dental office, which I thought was a nice touch. I appreciate the goodies they give to their patients. Dr. Ost is very gentle, friendly, and reassuring--good qualities for someone who is about to extract your tooth! He is highly-skilled too, so it was an almost painless procedure. I returned a while later for an abscessed tooth. The hygienist was incredibly delightful. I appreciated the knowledge she and Dr. Ost had in relation to my concerns. Having had a terrible experience with another dentist, I hadn’t been to a dental appointment in over 2 decades. Needless to say, I was anxious, but Dr. Ost. quelled my nerves thanks to his calm demeanor and gentle approach. I intend to keep returning to Dr. Ost’s practice.
Dr. Ost and his team make it enjoyable to go see the dentist. I’ve had nothing but positive experiences during my multiple procedures. Dr. Ost is the best dentist in Glen Head.
I’m a longtime patient of Dr. Ost, and I love going to see him. The best part about visiting him, however, is getting to see the hygienists. Every good dentist knows that you need a staff who is good at interacting with patients. A good dental visit is about the whole experience, not just what happens in the chair. It’s important to go to a great dentist. Visit Dr. Ost. You won’t regret it.
It was very easy to schedule appointments for both of my kids last week. The staff was meticulous and prompt. It was nice to see that all our insurance information was prepared and checked in advance so that there were no surprises. The exams, x-rays, and cleanings were all done thoroughly but punctually, which was pleasing for me because both my kids have braces, and they were a little overdue for the semi-annual appointment. I will definitely be referring friends and family to Dr. Steven Ost. In fact, two other friends have already scheduled an appointment. Thank you for everything!
Dr. Ost is a fantastic dentist. I was very nervous when I first arrived because I hadn’t been to a dentist in years. My two front teeth were chipped and yellow. They really needed work. During the consult, I explained my dental history, and Dr. Ost reassured me that everything would be fixed properly. It’s been one month since my initial visit, and I’m so impressed and appreciative of how well everything has turned out. If I could hug everyone on staff, I would. Thanks to my new dental look, I’m more confident. I’m so thankful for their professionalism and diligence. Dr. Ost and his whole crew are the best in Glen Head. Thank you for all you’ve done.
I normally find it very difficult to trust dentists, but I trust Dr. Ost and his staff. They are very knowledgeable and see to it that you are at ease with the procedure. Prior to administering anesthesia, they take your blood pressure. It’s nice to see that they care about the patient as a whole, not just their mouth. The treatments are necessary, not just to line their pockets. They are also rather conservative with treatment too. For example, instead of just doing a filling like most dentists would have done, Dr. Ost wanted to watch the area to see if it got worse. The hygienist is very gentle. I love going there and getting my teeth cleaned. I look forward to visiting Dr. Ost’s office. It’s an added drive for me, but it is definitely worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Ost and his staff.
I had a fabulous experience at Dr. Ost’s practice. The whole staff is extremely kind and definitely make you feel right at home. They are punctual and efficient. It’s nice not to be kept waiting well past your appointment time. The office is clean and well-decorated. It’s the best dental experience I’ve had in Glen Head. I highly recommend Dr. Ost!
My daughter-in-law required some pretty serious dental work. She discovered Dr. Ost because his office was one of the few in the Glen Head area willing to offer easy, affordable payments. The prices are reasonable. The office is very tidy and clean, and the dentist is very personable and professional. He seemed to really care about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Ost and his staff.
Dr. Ost and his staff are the kindest people. They know how to ease a patient’s anxiety while performing their dental work. Plus they are trustworthy and honest, giving you the proper treatment you require. They also provide an easy-to-follow, affordable payment plan. The office is very tidy.
Dr. Ost and his staff have incredible customer service. The office is extremely clean with up-to-date technology. I am so impressed! It’s exactly what I’m looking for in a dental practice. They are friendly and have a gentle touch. I had a root canal yesterday, and Dr. Ost called me to make sure I was doing well. I’ve never had this kind of treatment from a dentist. My family will be becoming patients of Dr. Ost in the near future. If you are in the Glen Head area and you need a dentist, you can trust Dr. Ost with all your dental needs.
I had my teeth cleaned today. I went to Dr. Ost’s office last week for an exam and X-rays. Dr. Ost was incredible. He really took his time and informed me during each step of the process. Today’s cleaning was equally as great. The hygienist explained the state of my teeth and gave me tips about how to improve my oral health. All in all, the staff was fantastic. I’m so impressed. It’s hard to find quality dental care nowadays. Thanks for everything!
I loved going to Dr. Ost! The entire staff is genuinely friendly and compassionate. They know their craft and value their patients. From the receptionist at check-in to the hygienist who cleans your teeth, the process is wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Ost for the whole family.

Dr. Ost and his team are incredibly personable and knowledgeable. I’ve been a long-time patient and have never had any issues with making an appointment or paying. I’ve never had any issues or complications with any of the procedures either. Each appointment is efficient and pain free! They treat each patient like they’re family, which makes you want to keep coming back. I cannot recommend Dr. Ost and his staff enough!
I knew I needed a new dentist in the Glen Head area, so I turned to online reviews to help make a decision. After reading the great reviews Dr. Ost received, I decided to schedule an appointment. The paperwork was convenient, and the front desk staff was very personable. The hygienist did a very meticulous job and happily answered all my questions. They took x-rays of my teeth, including a few extras because I had a question. They carefully documented all my information in a very detailed manner. I went back for a filling to be redone. It took no time at all, and I left pain free. Dr. Ost really cares about his patients and gave me some suggestions about how to care for my teeth I the future. I will definitely be recommending him to friends and family looking to switch dentists.
I found the best dental in Glen Head! The staff is very welcoming and personable. The hygienist is meticulous and doesn’t try to upsell you. Appointments are punctual. You never have to wait more than a few minutes in the waiting room. I had 4 fillings done recently. I didn’t experience any pain, and once the novocaine wore off, I could tell everything fit as it should. I didn’t need any adjustments. Dr. Ost is great! I appreciated the reasonable pricing. The quoted prices were correct--no surprised. It cost me less than half of what my former dentist charged for a deep cleaning. I highly recommend Dr. Ost and his staff.
I love going to see Dr. Ost. His office is very inviting, and he is very friendly. It’s impossible not to feel comfortable with him. I had a root canal performed this morning. Dr. Ost did an incredible job. The whole process was much quicker than I expected. He was very professional, always willing to answer my questions. I had gone to another dentist for awhile due to changes in my personal life, and I regret it. I’m so glad to be a patient with Dr. Ost again. Overall, this dental clinic is amazing. They make you feel so at home that you almost forget you’re at the dentist. If you live in the Glen Head area and are nervous about going to the dentist, give Dr. Ost a call.
Dr. Ost and his staff are incredibly friendly. They really know how to ease patients’ anxiety. Dr. Ost performed my wisdom tooth extraction. I appreciated his efficient, pain-free work. I’m normally very worried about going to the dentist, but the whole staff put me at east. They were exceptional. The dental assistants were kind and personable. I’ve found my permanent dentist in Glen Head. I can’t imagine going anywhere else. It’s not as close to my home as some of the other local dentists, but the added mileage is completely worth it because I know I will receive the best care. The office is clean and calming. I cannot recommend Dr. Ost enough!
I went to Dr. Ost’s practice for a teeth cleaning today. The clinic is very clean, and the staff is very helpful. The hygienist who performed my cleaning was wonderful. She was very gentle with my gums and engaged in interesting conversation. The appointment was quick, so I didn’t have to miss out on the important aspects of my day. Dr. Ost checked my check very thoroughly, and then I was on my way! Every experience I’ve had with Dr. Ost and his staff have been incredible.

I have a terminal neurological disease which causes muscles spasms in my neck and jaw. The spasms have led to me breaking multiple teeth. It probably goes without saying that I have tremendous pain. My medical needs require that I have full sedation, so I needed to find a dental clinic that would not only be able to address my unique situation but also schedule me for appointments right away. I did an online search, which led me to Dr. Ost. The staff is exceptional during every step of the process. Dr. Ost was incredibly professional and very willing to accommodate my illness. The anesthesia part was simple. I fell asleep and when I woke up, I felt safe. I feel so much better now. If you have special medication needs, go to Dr. Ost. He really knows how to put patients at ease.
Dr. Ost and his staff do excellent work. They truly value their work and work hard to save you money. While other dentists work through people quickly to get as many people as possible into their chair in a day with minimal effort, Dr. Ost takes his time. Other dentists wanted to pull 20 teeth out of my mouth in a very short time frame, but Dr. Ost was able to save a lot of those teeth so that they didn’t need to be pulled. He makes sure his work is of high quality, and for that reason, I would highly recommend Dr. Ost.
The staff at Ridge Dental Associates are very professional, kind, and willing to work with you on any problem you may have. They work very efficiently and have really nice uniforms. The was amazing, she helped me understand my insurance and the price I would pay for the work I was getting done. The office is very unique, old rock n’ roll plays in the background while you’re getting your teeth cleaned and they even have customized decor and one of a kind collectibles, which the staff will happily give you a tour of and tell you the story behind each piece. Very creative. Dr. Ost is a blessing to dentistry. He never made me feel ashamed about my dental health. He was very thorough with explanation of all the treatment options I had, including the risks and benefits of each. He explained everything in layman terms, made me feel comfortable, and answered any questions I had. I had some doubts about the procedures, but he made me feel relaxed. I had a leftover root from a wisdom tooth removed by and the procedure went very well, I recovered quickly. Dr. Ost and his assistant make a great team. He is very charming. Thank you for the wonderful care.
I am truly petrified of the dentist, but Dr. Ost makes me feel comfortable. He keeps his patients informed about everything he's doing and going to be doing. He makes sure you’re relaxed. He has these great mouth pieces that act as a bite guard as well as a guard from keeping stuff from going to the back of your throat while he's working on you. This helps keep the patient relaxed. If the idea of going to the dentist scares you, I would definitely check this place out. My entire family comes here now.
