I picked this dentist on the Upper West Side due to how close it is to where I live. Since seeing him twice now both my wife and I can say we are happy with our choice. We never have to wait long if there is a wait time which usually as soon as we arrive they are ready for us. Everyone in this dental office from the hygienist to the staff is thorough and make you feel welcomed. They are flexible are work with you and your schedule. The office is organized and well run which I love due to my busy schedule. Even personalized cards during holidays and birthdays. Honestly what more could you ask for? It's truly a great experience coming in.
I have not gone to the dentist for a while and it's not because of fear from the dentist. Its because my old Manhattan dentist would make me feel embarrassed for not flossing or etc. The dental team at Columbus Gentle Dental are kind and informative with realistic hygiene goals they give you. I had a few cavities and a wisdom tooth that needs to be taken out. I also wanted to discuss the option of whiting and Invisalign. Dr. Li was able to see me for a cleaning and discuss what I needed and what were my options. It was very informative and I was able to sign up for the Doctors Network at the office. Not for one second did I feel ashamed the whole staff was respectful and willing to answer any questions I had.
I would give Dr. Li and staff a 5-star review because it is well deserved. I'm only a month into my Invisalign treatment and every time I go in for my aligner pick up, Dr. Li is thorough while making the visits fast and easy. Booking appointment is also easy I can book by calling or email and have a response back within the hour. Invisalign can be expensive and thankfully being on the Doctors Network plan makes dentistry affordable. I have no complaints as a client everyone is very professional and accommodating. The dental assistant is so sweet and gentle she did my x-rays. Dr. Li is awesome and also very gentle. He knows what he is talking about and I completely trust him because I know he has my best interest. Dr. Li is very easy going and has a humorous side which I haven't met a lot of dentists in New York, NY like that. His humor helps me relax and not to be so tense. The first time I came into Dr. Li’s dental office on the Upper West Side was for an Invisalign consultation. His staff informed me of the dental plan and I was beyond thrilled. At my previous dental office in Midtown Manhattan they only accepted select dental plans; therefore, I was unable to go ahead with Invisalign due to I could not afford it at the time. After doing some research I decided to sign up and move to a different office. I am in the middle of my treatment now and I am just amazed by how much progress has been made. Every time I pick up my trays I know I am in good hands because Dr. Li wants every detail to be perfect. He will make time and communicate how everything feels and adjust as needed, such as adjusting pressure points, scanning, or taking pictures.

General Dental Care for Patients of all Ages in New York, NY
Routine family dentistry is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For instance, checkups and cleanings are necessary to evade oral health issues such as tooth cavities and periodontitis. At our New York, NY dental office, Dr. Li and our team offer a wide range of family dental services to help you enjoy a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles.
The Importance of General and Preventative Dentistry
When it comes to your oral as well as your overall health, prevention is vital. Therefore, the primary focus of family dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing. Besides practicing good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other procedures, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), bone and gum grafts, dental extractions, and more, can also help you manage existing issues before they worsen.
Excellent Dental Health in the Long Run
During your visit to your dentist’s office, your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums for signs of trouble. If any are present, then he or she will consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the problem from worsening. However, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
