I got the smile I always wanted! I chose these folks because of all the positive reviews I found on Google. Looks like they’re gonna get another one. Doc Steinberg is the real deal and I will definitely be recommending this office to all my family and friends. I had to make multiple trips due the extent of work required, and I was greeted with a warm smile and friendly service every time. I can’t say enough about the people in this office and how pleasant my experience was. Yes a pleasant experience at the dentist! Go figure.

My husband and I made the decision to try NRD after having some bad experiences at our last dental office. We were both blown away by how welcoming the staff at NRD were. Thank you Bonnie, Vanessa, Dr Raj, and Tayla for making my first exam and cleaning so enjoyable!

Great dental office. Super professional and friendly staff. This was my first visit. I was seen exactly at my appointment time. I received a thorough dental exam and evaluation, followed by a cleaning I could not have been happier with the process, the staff and the outcome

This is the best dentist office you could ever go to.They all are great. They treat you so kind, especially Bobbie Jo and the Dr. I was never a fan of going to the dentist as most of us are not, right, but the experience I have had at NRD has changed all that. I enjoy going to the dentist now and you will too, I promise, just give them a call.

I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in. Kelly was an excellent guide through the entire evaluation. Drs. Delarose and Steinberg were informative, friendly and comforting with my uneasiness at being in a dental office. I plan on coming back and starting my dental journey right here!

When half a tooth fell out unexpectedly, on referral from a friend, I went to North River Dental. I have received what I perceive to be above standard service. So far, I’ve gained a new crown, lost a bad tooth, had a cleaning, and plan for a deep cleaning. All of this was done with the newest of images and diagnostic tools coupled with really friendly and effective professionalism. I definitely recommend this group for anyone wanting help with mouth issues.

11/9/23 1 week ago Dr. Raj finished a root canal on my left upper eye tooth & did a wonderful job. He is known as the root canal specialist. He lets you know what he is doing & why he is doing it. He is very gentle & has a great sense of humor. On Friday of that same week I broke my left upper molar after the office had closed. On Monday morning I called the office and told the receptionist about my broken tooth and they fit me in by 10:00am that day. The whole office staff is great. They’re very accommodating & polite, but I do miss the chocolate chip cookies they used to serve. Niki B.
