"I highly recommend Everlasting Smile services! As someone who had the same dentist since she was 2 years old finding a trust worthy one was not something easy for me. I'm so glad I found this clinic 7 years ago as this is the place where I go for all my dental work. The staff has done an amazing job at keeping everyone feeling safe and comfortable during these challenging times. My personal favorite is the sterilized bins in where you can put all your belongings and not have to worry about them touching the floor. Don't put off your routine dental work for later, the clinic has gone above an beyond to ensure all patients and staff are safe."- A.C. / Google / Aug 22, 2020
"Dr. Reingold is an amazing dentist and his practice is THE BEST! First, he one of the most kind, thorough and honest people that there is and he loves what he does and you can tell. And I just had my first dentist appointment since COVID and as a germ-phobe, I can say the experience was fantastic! In all my years in NYC I've never left any where feeling so clean and cared for. The attention to every last bit of detail --from sanitizing the air, my phone, the room, not seeing even one patient--and he even has a device that makes sure there is no aerosol or air drops coming from your mouth. And his staff all has high tech protective gear from head to toe. I had to leave this review because it was an incredibly positive experience and I felt so happy about it! I highly recommend him!"- E.L. / Facebook / Jul 30, 2020
"I was referred to Dr. Reingold, by my mother, a Southern Beauty Queen, with the highest of standards who simply put 'indicated: Dr. Reingold's office has the best bedside manor' of any dental or medical practice she had ever known. When I first went to Everlasting Smile, was when I had a tooth fall out of my head in a business meeting, and decided to seek a second dental opinion. In my first visit to Dr Reingold's office, he told me that I actually needed 3 root canals (having never had one before, this was a shock), and now flash forward 10 years later, and I have come ot the end of what has been a rigorous, but fruitful curriculum with Dr. Reingold and his team. Entering into this very uncertain 2020, it certainly has helped to have the brightest smile, to bring happiness to others and to look great on Zoom calls!"- L.S. / Google / May 25, 2020
