We focus on adult dental braces because mature patients have different orthodontic wants and needs then kids, and we get that. Integrating cosmetic dentistry with longer and more frequent orthodontic visits can reduce treatment time by 50%! With longer visits, you can reduce the duration of treatment. Our patients can also visit more frequently than once a month to expedite the process. We offer both fixed or removable braces (e.g. Invisalign). Teeth braces, or teeth retainers, can make you look and feel great, all with more confidence at the office. Visit us for the best orthodontist care.
Our team includes 16 cosmetic dentists and specialists (including an Orthodontist) all in one high-end midtown Manhattan location. As a result, we are able to offer quick and comfortable appointments. We provide an intelligent and honest diagnosis based upon 33+ years of experience.
“I am someone who needs dental care often because of my poor oral hygiene in the family. I have been to many different dentists over the years in the NYC area. But no experience compares to Dr. Dorfman’s. I have gotten my dental works here from braces, crown, wisdom teeth surgery to cleaning. Dr. Dorfman gives you honest opinions on what you need rather than pushing you to do things more than what you need like many other dentists. No hassle, no waiting, friendly staff, industry’s leading specialists practice here. This dental office seems to have high tech equipments and facilities up to date. Precised practice and honest opinion is one of the reasons why I have been a devoted client at Dr. Dorfman’s for the past 10 years!!”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Dorfman’s for about 20 years. Dr. Dorfman is an absolutely incredible dentist. His office and staff make the entire experience amazingly professional, efficient and offer the kind of expertise that usually one can only dream of finding. In addition, besides incredible technical skill, Dr. Dorfman understands the aesthetics of what he is doing, and also shares all the options with the patient so that the best option can be identified. Dr. Dorfman has always taken all the time necessary to effectively deal with whatever problem I have come in for. Dr. Dorfman (or “Jeff” as I have come to know him over the past 20 years) is a great, kind, and personable dentists.”

“Gave me a Hollywood smile! – I went to the Center for Special Dentistry last month to see about changing my smile. I work on broadway, and though my teeth are fine for being on stage, in headshots I had pumpkin teeth. Obviously, braces weren’t really an option, but I had heard good things about Dr. Dorfman’s office from some other performers and I thought I’d check it out. Amazing. The dentist that treated me was Dr. Joe. Cool guy, very informative, gave me several options and let me know the costs up front. He suggested “cosmetic bonding” to close the gaps in my teeth, and a bleaching to whiten them. Basically, the same stuff they use to make the tooth colored fillings for cavities they can use to reshape your teeth. I did the bleaching first, Fast, Easy. Then when the color was to my liking I went in for the bonding. Two hours later, Bam, total Brad Pitt hollywood leading man teeth. Awesome color, great shape, totally DO NOT look fake, and no pain or hassle. That guy is amazing. So two short visits, complete satisfaction. Since then I’ve gotten tons of complements and new kick-a$$ headshots. I absolutely recommend The Center for Special Dentistry and will be returning for anything I need dentally.”
“Though saying it seems odd, it was a great experience. The office is lovely. Hardwood floors, flat screen monitors with current shows playing (The Office, Entourage, even movies), digital x-rays (fast!), and nice views out the window (St. Patrick’s Cathedral is beautiful). Dr. Dorfman and Dr. Joe are two of the doctors I met in the office. Both of them spent a lot of time talking with me, getting to know me as a person, and explaining everything they were doing in actual English. Initially, I had my teeth cleaned and xrays taken. Kathleen, the hygienist is fantastic, super-gentle, but super-thorough. My mouth felt so clean afterwards, but not raw and sore like some cleanings I’ve had. Afterwards Dr. Dorfman and Dr. Joe went over my xrays with me. My past dentist told me I had over 10 cavities, but when I asked to see the xrays he told me I wouldn’t understand them. Dr. Joe gladly went over them, and unfortunately I did have quite a few, but I appreciated him taking the time to work with me, it let me trust his diagnosis, and that he wasn’t trying to overcharge me for stuff I didn’t need. Dr. Dorfman actually filled my cavities at a later visit, and he did a beautiful job. There was absolutely no pain, and the tooth colored bondings match my real teeth so well that I can’t see where they begin and end. It looks like natural teeth! He took pictures all the way through so that I could see what he was doing. Again, I appreciated his honesty and his willingness to make decisions WITH me, not FOR me. I do have to say that it is not cheap, but it was worth the expense. If you want to be treated like a person and get beautiful dentistry done by doctors you can trust, then I highly recommend The Center for Special Dentistry and Dr. Dorfman.”
