  • Wonderful Experience
    I love Smile Design Specialists in North Arlington. Upon arrival at the office, I always have a wonderful experience. Jessie the hygienist is great and Dr. E. is wonderful. Both are honest about things I do well and areas where I need attention, and they do so lovingly. The only reason I've given 4 out of 5 stars is the office's use of text, email and phone reminders. They are annoying and give me high blood pressure. Perhaps some people need multiple reminders, but I'd like to be put into a category that allows one reminder (text or call, not both) the day before. I DON'T need reminders weeks before or the morning of. I've also unsubscribed from email communication because the volume of messaging was insane.

  • Knowledgeable, Efficient & Caring
    Invisalign is the best investment I have ever made for myself. It was simple, quick and painless and the result was an enormous improvement in my self-esteem. Dr. Ekstein and his staff are knowledgeable, efficient and caring. My whole family got orthodontic treatment from Dr. Ekstein and the results are nothing short of amazing.

  • Nothing But Professional!

    The staff at the Smile Design Specialists is nothing but professional! Not only do they provide a very professional experience, but I felt welcome and comfortable at every stage of my procedure. The Smile Design Specialists epitomize 21st Century dentistry, in terms of the use of technology in the provision dental care, as well as remaining current with the latest developments. I would highly recommend Dr. Ekstein's practice to others for regular dental health maintenance or more involved procedures like dental implants. As a patient, confidence in my dental health care provider is a very important quality. The Smile Design Specialists provide outstanding service and a friendly atmosphere. Thanks again guys.

  • Smiling Confidently
    I got Invisalign invisible braces with Dr. Ekstein last year. I had a big gap between my front teeth and a few crooked teeth on the bottom, but I was surprised at how quickly my teeth were straightened. I will be smiling confidently from now on. Thanks again for my straight teeth Dr. Ekstein!

  • Dr & Team Are Amazing
    The Dr and his team are amazing. They make you feel super comfortable and they pay attention to things in your life. What dentist office sends you a congratulations card when you deliver your baby. My dentist does. Thank you for that.

  • Best In The Industry
    Not only is Dr. E the best in the industry but his staff is awesome! I’m not a fan of the dentist industry or its employees but The Smile Design Specialist are a God sent and they caterer to weirdos like myself and I love them for it! They also put up with my entire family including the male weirdos. Best dentist and staff in the tristate area......THANK YOU!

  • Made Me Feel Like Family
    Dr. E and his entire team are true professionals and made me feel like family. When I came to them I had a tall order of dental work that needed to be done before my wedding. They put together a plan and executed it flawlessly. Most people are scared of the dentist but not here. They treat you like family, greet you with a smile, and every room they have is warm and welcoming. They educated me on how to care for my teeth properly, did about 3 years of dental work for me in about 8 weeks, and for the first time in my life I can smile with confidence knowing the work that was done has transformed my smile into something I am so proud of. I haven't been able to smile with teeth in years as I was ashamed of my teeth and the damage I have done over the years. Every aspect of my experience with them was above and beyond what I had expected. They even gave me a little wedding present when I returned from my honeymoon. If you need a real dentist then look no further. I couldn't thank Dr. E and his team enough. You guys are truly magical. THANKS AGAIN!!!!!! <3

  • Best Dental Health Possible
    Everyone always puts you at ease. Dr. E and his staff are caring and patient. I have very bad dental phobia and anxiety and they have worked with me for years to give me the best dental health possible. I highly recommend Smile Design.

  • Comfortable, Clean & Cozy
    Let me start off by saying the moment I walked into the office, the sweetest woman named Fran greeted me and knew who I was immediately (initial visit as well). Shows that are on top of their appointments and aware of the patients walking into their office. The office is so comfortable, clean, and the atmosphere feels cozy. When I was brought into the consult room, Keisha asked me all the appropriate questions that were vital to my visit. She was super nice and once again made me feel comfortable. Dr. Ekstein is literally the nicest doctor I have ever encountered in my life. I am terrified of the dentist but he was so friendly and funny! When I explained my fears and everything, he literally said: "I get it, you were traumatized." When he did a quick evaluation he explained every single thing in detail what had to be done and how. Once we were complete, I went back to the front desk where I was scheduled for another appointment to follow up with more details and insurance information which was already started by the other nice woman (I do not know her name, sorry). If you are looking for a new dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Ekstein!!!! I am truly happy with my initial visit

  • A Comfortable & Great Experience
    Very friendly staff and Dr. Ekstein is very knowledgeable. He doesn't force you to do unnecessary procedures and does only essential work on your teeth. My teeth cleaner was Melinda. And for all the time I've been here she has thoroughly done her job in cleaning and x-rays. Overall she ensures you have a comfortable and great experience. I am so glad I came across this place and definitely recommend it.

  • Positive & Pleasant Experience
    I began seeing Dr. E many years ago initially because his practice was close to work and convenient. My experience with Dr. E and his staff was so positive and pleasant it was nothing like what a typical trip to the dentist had been in the past. I was always made to feel comfortable and at ease with anything I had done from a hygiene appointment to a root canal. Today now with a wife and 2 children and a 40 mile commute to his office, I WILL NOT take my family anywhere else! I give Smile Design Specialists my highest recommendation.
