v-smile4.jpgI have been coming to Dr. Esoldi for 21 years. He treats my whole family. He is an excellent dentist. He is personable and pleasant. He has restored all of my teeth and I now look like a different person. I would say he is the best and so is his staff. I would recommend him to any and every one.

Dr. Gary Esoldi, DMD, President of Riverside Dental, restored my self esteem. He is compassionate, talented and he truly cares about his patients.

I had always had a nice smile until my front teeth started moving. I had a big gap between my two front teeth and two of my other front teeth dropped and began to protrude. When I asked my former dentist what could be done he told me to “do the best you can”. Well, I did. I called Dr. Esoldi who was recommended by a friend. During my consultation, I asked Dr. Esoldi if I should just live with the problems with my teeth, and he said that he would never tell me to do that. After discussing all the options, we decided that 4 individual implants would be best. Having implants always seemed scary to me, but the procedures were comfortable. Even my temporary teeth, which Dr. Esoldi sculpted freehand, looked so much better than my original teeth. Dr. Esoldi is truly an artist. I am so happy with my permanent implants. They look natural and feel terrific. I smile widely now with pretty smile confidence.

The dental assistants, hygienists and other employees at Riverside Dental are all professional and friendly, and they were all genuinely happy with the outcome of my treatment. Thank you Dr. Esoldi and all your staff for giving me have a smile I can be proud of and for sharing my joy of my new smile.

Dear Staff,

For all those people who fear dentists and never want to go, well, Dr. Gary Esoldi and staff are here to dispel all those horrible stories you heard and were worried about.

In August I lost (2) 3 piece bridges on both sides of my mouth, ergo, eating became a problem. I heard about implants and decided to do some extensive research about them. Needless to say, I had several concerns. I was recommended to Dr. Esoldi by an old nursing friend.

On my initial visit total x-rays were taken with a 21st century machine. I was then shown all the problem areas and presented with all my options. I felt this office and staff were very professional and worked as an excellent team. After reviewing all my options, I decided to go with the implants and Dr. E. Dispelled all my concerns.

The first visit lasted 3 hours when he extracted 6 teeth, did a bone graft and installed 4 implants. Sounds horrible, it wasn’t. The biggest problem was keeping my mouth open for 3 hours.

Fast forward one month, everything has healed as expected with no problems, and now I’m looking forward for the final part of the process in 3 months. All I can say now I no pain and great gain. Thanks to the Riverside Dental Health Team.

For nearly 20 years, there has been only one name in dentistry for my family- Dr. Gary Esoldi. 'Dr. Gary' provides care by evaluating his patients completely with more that mere dentistry in mind. Dr. Esoldi and the staff at Riverside Dental Health make going to the dentist not only painless in the chair, but the entire process is comfortable from start to finish. Thanks to everyone for making the experience a pleasant one!

Dr. Gary Esoldi is a phenomenal General and Cosmetic Dentist!

I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat since I have been very happy with the results of his work and my new smile. I can’t thank him enough for the fantastic job he has done so far and for listening, caring, being understanding and patient. He is very personable and easy to talk to, he answers all you questions and addresses all concerns. He is very honest and would never push you for something you don’t need, just the opposite, he would advise you to wait on the cosmetic work if there is something else that needs to be addressed first, like orthodontics consultation or work before veneers or crowns for example. He cares so much, he makes you feel like you are part of the family. I am really happy with making the right decision by switching to Dr. Gary Esoldi from my previous provider.

It all started with my front crown being loose and constantly falling out either by itself or with the post inside. It happened so many times in less than a year, I lost a count of how many times I had to go back to my former provider to re-cement either the post or the crown back. The only resolution to that issue, according to my former provider and other dental providers I consulted with in the meanwhile, was to extract the tooth and have an implant work done… According to everyone I consulted with, there was not enough tooth left for a bigger/stronger post insertion. But not for Dr. Gary Esoldi!!! He was my final provider I decided to have a consultation with (for a 2nd or more like 4th opinion) and in his opinion, the problem could be remedied with a better, longer post. Next thing you know, this chronic problem was quickly fixed by Dr. Esoldi with no issues and avoiding unnecessary surgery/time/stress/money spent.

While visiting Dr. Esoldi’s office with courteous, responsive, caring, just outstanding staff, I also learned that Dr. Esoldi is a true artist. I was impressed with his artwork on the walls of the office like sketches of people, photography of architecture and landscapes which was personally done by him. I also noticed portraits of his patients with gorgeous smile makeovers that were also done by Dr. Esoldi. I understood that he had a special vision, prospective of an artist in the cosmetic part of the business. This is when I decided to have all of my old crowns and veneers work redone by Dr. Esoldi. It was somewhat complex case with a combination of crowns and veneers on the front teeth that had to be stripped off first and then replaced with the new ones perfectly matching in shape/size/color while maintaining natural look. Initially, not everything went as planned. However, at the end, it all turned out just spectacular! I learned that Dr. Esoldi would go above and beyond to make a client happy. And this is where I am now – very happy, feeling confident when I smile and sending everyone I know to experience Dr. Esoldi’s fantastic performance. Thank you Dr. Gary Esoldi!!! Keep up the great work!!!

For years, my four upper front teeth were crooked, crowded, and out of line with one another. One front tooth overlapped the other slightly. Both were at a slight angle. One of the two neighboring teeth on each side was pushed back somewhat, and the other was somewhat forward of its neighbors. I had never had braces as a child and may teeth grew in like this. I simply became used to the way they were and accepted it.

Recently, I mentioned my dissatisfaction about it to my dentist, Dr. Gary Esoldi of Riverside Dental Health in Hackensack, NJ. He had been my dentist for many years and I was pleased with his work. He suggested that the situation could be corrected using Lumineers, which are a kind of dental veneers. He patiently described the procedure and answered all my questions thoughtfully. At age 55, I considered just continuing on with my teeth as they were, but finally decided to go ahead with it.

I can honestly say that I am extremely pleased with the new Lumineers. My front teeth are straight and even, the gumline looks much better than before and I can smile broadly without thinking about having crooked teeth. The color of the Lumineers match the color of my natural teeth perfectly, so they don't stand out as being false in any way. Yes, it takes quite a bit of time to get used to the new teeth. They feel different and because of their different shape and different sharpness, eating is different. But one adjusts to that.

I highly recommend Dr Esoldi. His work in creating the new look to my smile couldn't be better. He has an artistic touch. Also, I'd like to commend all of his staff: the assistants, hygienists, and office personnel are always helpful, friendly, and efficient.
