Hygiene & Preventive Care in New York

Dental Cleaning NYC

Proper dental hygiene forms the cornerstone of good oral health. The dentists at 209 NYC Dental provide comprehensive hygiene services for patients throughout New York City, including routine cleanings and guidance in proper home care to help patients keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. The hygienist is the first line of defense in diagnosing and treating oral pathology. The hygienist carefully examines each tooth, then a detailed soft tissue exam, then a studious review of the x-rays, followed by an oral cancer screening exam. The hygienist will further review medical histories, drug allergies, recent operations etc. After the cleaning (prophylaxis) the hygienist will go over nutrition (stress a decrease in refined sugars), brushing and flossing. The hygienist will answer questions about toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash, sleep apnea, snoring, grinding or clenching teeth at night (bruxism), crooked teeth, cosmetics and any other concerns that the patient may have. This information will be conferenced with the dentist so that we deliver the most coordinated, comprehensive treatment possible.

I have a fear of going to the dentist and had not been in several years. I immediately felt at ease upon entering this business and was treated with respect and great care. The hygienist was friendly and kept checking on me to make sure I was okay, and the dentist himself took the time to get to know me, address any fears and concerns, as well as make plans for the future. I left having three numbers to contact the dentist and my hygienist if necessary and have decided to make this place my dental home. Plus, they were very willing to work with me on a payment schedule given that I have no insurance. I’m so grateful and impressed.

What Our Patients Are Saying

With over 1000 reviews from all over the web with an average rating of 4.9 we are proud to be in the Manhattan Dental Elite.

Can’t say enough good things about this place. We found this place because my partner had a dental emergency and no insurance. We both have dentist phobias that have prevented us from keeping on top of our teeth cleanings etc. and so we don’t have a regular one to go to in situations like this. I looked for the highest rated dentist in the city on Google and found this place, which mentions specialty in caring for emergencies on their site. And so I got him in the door based on that. They spoke the truth! They were so kind, patient, caring and non judgmental for my partner, it made me want to go in for my own cleaning and care. Now we’ve referred several people since! I personally have been seeing Dr. Reddy, who is a gem of a human who seems to enjoy her work. my friends have seen other dentists here and we’ve all had the best experience here and think ours is the best. :) Since it was years since my cleaning, I did need some work done over the last couple months or so and I made it to all of them. Instead of anxiety and maybe occasionally postponing as I would do in the past, I almost looked forward to my appointments. They made all the costs and insurance coverage completely clear and transparent and gave me choices. I commute from Bushwick but it’s been so worth it. If you are looking for the dentist, this is your place!

Amazing service. I had a abcess develop while in NYC. The 209 clinic saw me same day for an effortless service. It was a third of the price of some of the dentists in mid town. Highly recommend

This is a wonderful dental office with very professional and friendly staff and up to date technology. They took me at a very short notice when I needed emergency dental work, they were so nice and accommodating. The office itself is bright and modern, all staff are welcoming! All doctors are absolutely fantastic! The best part is that they have all Dental specialists at that office, so they’ll be able to help you with any dental issue without you leaving the office. I highly recommend 209 NYC Dental!
