5-Star-Rated Orthodontics Office & Orthodontist On The Upper West Side (UWS)
I enthusiastically recommend Central Park Orthodontics and Dr. George Pliakas. The staff is so professional and his expertise shines through in the high quality of his work. It is a beautiful state-of-the-art office with all the modern amenities my daughter and I love. I am just so happy I found this office. I researched, asked around, and visited several Manhattan offices trying to find the best place to take my 12 year old daughter to get her braces. There really was no competition when you have a smart Board Certified orthodontist like Dr. George. Dr. George is awesome with teenagers and truly dedicated to giving his patients the best experience. I can attest to that!
I have had a great experience at Central Park Orthodontics! They were understanding to my situation and worked with me to get the best result. Dr. Pliakas, as well as everyone else, puts you at ease and is able to make every visit comfortable and enjoyable-well as enjoyable as an orthodontic visit can get! He is very knowledgeable and talented in his work and I would definitely recommend him! I haven’t had the easiest time regarding my teeth but it has progressed wonderfully.
My experience at Central Park Orthodontics was so great! From Helen at the front desk to Dr. Pilakas — everyone was super nice, friendly and accommodating. I went fairly often throughout my treatment and it ended up feeling like home! Dr. Pilakas is a perfectionist, which is good if you want perfect teeth 🙂 He was always transparent, explained everything thoroughly, and had a great sense of humor whenever I tried to get away with wearing my retainers/rubber bands for less time. I highly recommend Central Park Orthodontics to everyone! I traveled all the way from Brooklyn and it was well worth it!
Dr. Pliakas is fantastic and we recommend him to all of our friends who need orthodontic work. Our daughters teeth are perfectly straight in such a short time. The office is always available for last minute appointments and Dr Pliakas and Helen couldn’t be nicer and more accommodating. Highly recommend!!
Super clean and nice office. Everyone is very professional and prompt. Would highly recommend Central Park Orthodontics to anyone looking for orthodontic work.
This office is amazing. The staff and the doctor are such amazing people, I am always welcomed with a smile 🙂 Dr. Pliakas does a wonderful job and he is a wonderful man. The office is very clean and very organized. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Somebody who has always had a tremendous fear of dentists, I have only ever had a wonderful experience with Dr. Pliakas every single visit. When I came to New York and was looking for an orthodontist for my treatment, I visited atleast more than 10 different orthodontists on the upper west side alone. This office was by far the best, the cleanest, with the most friendly and professional vibe. Dr. George and his team are very professional and accommodating. Most of all, Dr. George himself is very professional in his treatment, he always makes sure to explain what he is doing before he does it and his hand is mild and comforting always. I would surely recommend his office and his treatment to anyone looking for a fantastic experience with their treatment!
I couldn’t be happier with the orthodontic care my three daughters received from Dr Pliakis. At each visit (and with three children, there were many!), he was friendly and gentle and wait time was almost nonexistent. They experienced little to no discomfort throughout the process and now have beautiful smiles!
Dr. Pliakis and his staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable, and provide excellent service in a clean and modern office. I highly recommend them for all of your orthodontics needs.
Didn’t realize when I made the appointment that I would step into such a modern office, friendly receptionist, topped with a very knowledgeable orthodontist. During consultation, the doctor showed me my kids’ images on a big monitor and set my expectations on how long the braces will be on for. He is very gentle, warm and friendly…. a true hidden gem.
Dr. Pliakas is the best orthodontist on the upper west side hands down. After what felt as a long search for the right orthodontist, I brought my daughter in to see him. Dr. Pliakas is very professional. I later found out that he attended Harvard University for college and Columbia University for his Dental Degree and orthodontic training. So happy with him. Highly recommend.
I was looking for the best Invisalign orthodontist in Manhattan and I sure found him! From the very beginning the doctor and staff were very friendly and professional. The office is very modern and clean. The process was so easy. Dr. Pliakas is very gentle and patient. I finally have the smiled I always wanted.
Thank you Dr. P!
It was a pleasure working with Dr. Pliakas and his office. They were flexible with scheduling, and the results of my treatment were great.
Dr. Pliakas is a Harvard and Columbia grad who exemplifies excellent knowledge in the field of orthodontics coupled with great chair side manner. If you are looking for a honest, passionate, and caring practitioner, you can stop searching on the internet and call his office for a consultation. Did I also mention his beautifully designed office?
Best Kept Secret On The Upper West Side
Dr. Pliakas is a wonderful orthodontist. His work is phenomenal. After several consultations with strong candidates across the city, I chose to proceed with him and have not regretted it to date. The pricing is competitive. Offices are beautiful and serene, overlooking Central Park. Staff is friendly and efficient, including his wonderful front-office associate, and rarely have we had to wait more than 5 minutes. The results have been fast, efficient and effective, to a point where my dentist remarked on the results. He is aware of all the most recent technologies and developments in the area of orthodontics. Moreover, he is a wonderful person: calm, bright, talented and very funny. He’s modest about his education and training (inc. Harvard). Absent recommendation, I never would have known he existed given his nascent practice. I am very glad I did. Recommend him without caveat to anyone living on the UWS, and beyond.
Harvard Univ and Columbia Univ educated, TRUSTWORTHY, extremely knowledgeable, courteous, makes treatment decisions that are in the best interest of the child. I truly felt he was not price gouging me. In fact, he said, “let’s do nothing and wait a year. I don’t feel any need to treat right now. I treat every patient as if he/she was my own child.” I also recently consulted another more price gouging orthodontist and this other orthodontist pressured me to treat immediately and take action. You can’t ask for a better Upper West Side orthodontist than Dr. Pliakas. Incredible training, nice guy, and trustworthy…he’s the complete package. Great with kids. Patient. Spends quality time to answer all your questions. Dr. Pliakas is clear and polite in answering your questions. He’s the real deal.
Last week Doctor Pliakas removed my braces and I couldn’t be happier with the result. After checking a lot of orthodontics in Manhattan he is the only one that gave me the retainers I wanted, the braces I wanted, the price that I wanted and made me feel comfortable. He is very perfectionist and experienced. The clinic is new, very clean and comfortable, the staff is so friendly and helpful always with a smile. Prices are more than reasonable. Plus location is great! I’ll recommend them 100%.
Dr. Pliakas is an amazing Upper West Side orthodontist!
I went to Dr. Pliakas to get a consultation for my 2 kids. The office looks very modern and clean. The receptionist and assistant are very warm and friendly. They answered in details of what my insurance covered. I had read somewhere that if you start the treatment of braces when the children are young, that there is better retention and less likely for teeth to relapse. Dr. Pliakas saw my daughter who is 9 (a mouth breather), but he told me her dental age is of a 6 year old and that we need to wait until she gets her molars in to do the braces. As for my 11 1/2 year old son, he has a deep bite that was affecting his speech. Dr. Pliakas did the consultation and came up with a treatment plan. My son has been wearing braces for 6 months now, I can see the changes that are taking place and his speech has improved at a much faster rate compared to years of speech therapy which he still goes for. I can’t wait for my daughter to get her molars in so we can get started with her as well. I love the place, but most of all it’s my son who is happy with Dr. Pliakas which says a lot.
Dr. Pliakas, does great work! He replaced the permanent retainer on my top teeth after I came in with it basically mangled from years of abuse. He replaced the whole thing for a really reasonable price and then guaranteed the work for a full year. So, when I came back in with a loose binding 5 months later after a run in with a nasty baguette, he fixed me up for free and had me on my way in a swift 20 minutes. The office is clean and professional, and the wonderful woman at the front desk is always warm and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Pliakas and Central Park Orthodontics!
Doctor is very caring and compassionate. He is very patient and professional . Staff is very pleasant and office is very modern. Highly recommend !
Amazing staff, extremely warm and friendly!
Beautiful new, clean office. Extremely friendly and courteous staff and doctor. Recommend for sure!
After completing two other consultations for braces I scheduled a consultation (with ease using Zoc Doc) with Dr. Pliakas. At this point I was tired from doing research and disappointed by the diagnosis from the other doctors. I am thrilled that I decided to meet with Dr. Pliakas and his team! From the initial consult I knew that this treatment plan was the one! The office is conveniently located on the upper westside (and its beautiful space.) Dr. Pliakas gave a clear and thorough explanation of all of my options and specific recommendations for my case. Helen handled all of my financial and administrative concerns with perfection! Affordable pricing, especially for the NYC metro area. Please schedule your consultation, you will not be disappointed.
Dr. Pliakas was extremely professional and knowledgable. His office is modern, renovated, and extremely clean. I went in for a complimentary consultation, and will definitely be back!
The office is brand new and very nice. I was told they moved into the space in June 2015. I felt rates were reasonable and reception was very helpful to plan my payments around my insurance plan. Given the location on Central Park West, cost had been a concern of mine. I am happy I made this choice!
My daughter is so happy with her new braces. Dr. George Pliakas is an excellent Upper West Side orthodontist. Beautiful, state of the art office and very nice staff made our experience a great one.
Dr. Pliakas is an excellent professional. He’s a perfectionist and honest with his patients. I’m glad to be part of his team. #CentralParkOrthodontics
