I have been a patient since 2000 and would never go anywhere else. I have had the father as my dentist now I have the son. PDA is not about the money but about giving the best care and advise to their patients.  My hygienist Sherry is the best, Dr.Nair is the best Periodontist ever. I did my implants there with Dr Mendel my root canal you name it,  anything to do with my dental care they take care of me. Great practice.  Thanks Dr. David Ritholtz for having such a wonderful practice and thanks for Steven your son who is doing just as great in your foot steps! Sincerely. Mrs. Woods More

I was 30 minute late, but still got to see the Dr. Erwin very soon. I wrote on the intake form that I don't want to be called Miss, and everyone respected it and called me by my preferred name. Everybody was patient, friendly, and highly professional. One of the best experiences getting dental treatments in NYC. More

I went to the office this morning to drop a check for my husband's upcoming dental procedure. I figured while I'm there I should make an appointment for myself since I have not seen a dentist in years and to my surprise the lovely receptionist advised she had a cancellation and they would see me right now! From the ladies up front to the XRay tech, Sheri the hygienist and the dentist whose name escapes me at the moment, I had a great experience! My dental future looks bright as I look forward to working with this team! If you ignore your teeth they will go away...#callmesmiley More

This is by far the best dentist I have found downtown....I've been living in the neighborhood for years so I've had my fair share of idiot dentists and it's very refreshing to have found a practice I trust.  The office is beautiful and I don't have a single complaint about the quality of care I've received.   The best part about this practice is that I couldn't tell you my doctors name and it doesn't even matter because they aren't the one who make the practice so amazing.  It's the front desk staff who are extremely knowledgeable, the hygienist and JUDY who handles billing.  I had the most ass backward insurance issue and she was fully able to take care of it for me!! She went above and beyond and if it wasn't for her I would be on to my next practice and they would have lost a patient.  You won't be disappointed with this office! More

Checking in was done on a tablet and went quickly. I like that they don’t waste paper. My name was called almost right away. The doctor was thorough, informative, checked in to see if I was uncomfortable at any point and made sure to ask if I had any questions. The only downside is the very small space they have. The waiting room feels cramped. More

I've been coming for 4 years and I always am impressed by the near zero wait time, friendly staff, and solid care. Today I had the privilege (and I mean that) of having Gustavo as my Dental hygienist. Gustavo clearly has a passion for oral care and people. Moreover, he explains everything - what he is doing and why - so clearly it's impressive. I had my first ever issue with a tooth and he walked me through treatments, recommendations, pros, cons... you name it so I could make an informed decision. He even double checked with front desk to make sure my insurance partially covered the treatment... guy is a rockstar! More

So far I have had a cleaning, filling (broken filling repaired), Invisalign consult and Invisalign first appointment. Every time I go to Premier Dental it is a truly pleasant experience. Here's the breakdown: The receptionists have all been helpful, kind, patient and understanding. A great office staff is so important, especially when issues come up (i.e., my running late, missing an appointment, asking a million questions, etc.). They've been nicer than they needed to be, and that is really rare. SHERRI, who did my cleaning, was one of the most genuinely nice people I have encountered in a medical setting. Not only did she do an amazing job (and I hadn't had a cleaning in years, so it was a big job), but she was so sweet and made me feel so comfortable. I highly recommend her. If you have any sort of apprehension about getting a cleaning, request her. She is a saint. Dr. Viego is great. Granted, you spend less time with the dentist than the dental hygienist, but every time I've seen her I've felt 100% comfortable. She is extremely skilled - she fixed a broken filling of mine and I felt absolutely no pain. She's also just a lovely person. Dr. Galler will be my Invisalign guru for the next 10 months. So far every interaction has been positive. He's super personable and clearly he is talented. Hopefully I will be checking back with a successful Invisalign experience! Also, I forget the name of his assistant, but she is very good! Overall, it sounds crazy, but going to Premier Dental hardly feels like going to the dentist. The dentists are top notch and the support staff is amazing. 10/10 More

My name is Dr. Camacho who know this dentist from a special Invisalign groupnin which Dr DAVID Galler is the chairman. This Dentist is constantly looking for knowledge beyond the ordinary Invisalign provider. He goes the very extra mile to share and teach his skills among us and his patients. In his personal character is a very pleasant and caring individual. More

Dedicating my first Yelp review ever to the amazingly talented Dr. Galler. Never in a million years did I think I would be leaving a 5 star review for a dental office, but the team at Premier Dental Associates is the absolute best. I recommend them to anyone who will listen. I have never had a bad experience over the past 3 years of being a patient for both cleanings and Invisalign.   I recently finished my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Galler and could not be happier with my results! I was a particularly difficult case thanks to a genetic "deformity" in my top and bottom jaw, (seriously just mention my name at your next Invisalign appointment or consultation and he will tell you himself, I am a medical miracle) but Dr. Galler stuck it out with me and provided excellent care. He wasn't the first person to tell me I needed my jaw broken and reset, but he was the first person who I truly believed had my best interest at heart and would be skilled enough to see me through the process and recovery.   My "deformity" (which sounds much more dramatic than it was) required orthognathic surgery (the breaking of the top and bottom jaw to be better positioned) and Dr. Galler worked seamlessly with my surgeon at Weill Cornell, Dr Behrman on my plan. If anyone needs this sort of surgery I highly recommend him as well. The entire process took 2.5 years thanks to stopping Invisalign for a few months and starting again post surgery, but the results were absolutely worth the wait. I get compliments all the time and people refuse to believe that my before pictures are even my teeth after seeing what I look like today.   I am so grateful for Dr. Galler's expertise and kindness throughout this entire process and journey. I genuinely miss seeing him and Natasha every month. I still can't believe the dramatic difference in my face and side profile. The man is a magician. You will not regret becoming a patient of his.

I just finished my Invisalign treatment. About 18 months ago I started Invisalign with Dr Galler. I had had a lot of crowding of my teeth for a while and it just started to bother me a lot... Dr. Galler made me feel so comfortable on the morning of my consultation and without blinking I signed up to start. I was embarrassed over my teeth and I just wanted to not feel judged. Doing Invisalign with Dr. Galler at Premier Dental associates you are able to finance your treatment with 0% APR for 2 years. I made an investment in me and it was the best decision I ever made. Dr Galler makes you feel really comfortable and is so personable, he has a lovely assistant named Natasha who also is a pleasure to work with. I wore my trays the amount of time per day that you are supposed to, but yes a little cheat here and there but all in all I was good, I had a goal. In matter of 6 months it had already done wonders for my smile - I showed my (then) before and after picture to two of my friends and they both immediately signed up to do the treatment with Dr Galler as well haha. Today, almost 2 years since my first appointment I am completely finished and my teeth are absolutely beautiful. Yes the treys hurt, and getting braises at  25 was not something I was really looking forward to, but I swear 90% of the people in my surrounding never knew I had it.. and the people who did know never paid attention to it so they didn't see it either. If you have problems with your teeth, definitely go to Dr Galler and do a free consultation.. I suffered a long time with my ugly crowded teeth and today I am so happy that I did this - truly worth every hard earned dime! - I have now moved all of my dental services to Premier Dental Associates, it's super close to the subway station downtown and they are just lovely there. I will continue to take great care of my teeth and hope to inspire someone else to make an investment in themselves! I never thought I would have a beautiful straight smile and because of this wonderful Dr I now do. I heart my dentist More

I’ve been in the city for a while now and I realized it was time I really dragged myself to the dentist.  I have to say I am relieved and pleasantly surprised.  Someone mentioned that the office looks a bit like a spa and I have to agree.  It is a much more relaxing atmosphere in which to wait, especially if the thought of seeing a dentist makes one a bit nervous as it does me.  The front office staff were helpful, friendly, and professional.Alma was gentle with the cleaning, very thorough, and didn’t talk to me like I was some sort of jackass.  Sadly I cannot remember my dentist’s name and she is not currently on the website but I immediately liked her.  Rather than coming in and recommending expensive and frightening dental work she told me I will likely need some crowns but there is no rush.  She seemed to understand not everyone is thrilled out drills in their mouths.Even the dental assistant was a sweetie.  All in all, I am glad to have found this place.
