About
CityLife Dental

At CityLife Dental, we believe that your smile is the key to your health — and the key to your confidence.

Our team of caring and gentle professionals, led by Dr. John Hong, utilizes general and cosmetic dentistry to support your goals for oral health. Our approach incorporates the latest in digital imaging and pain-minimizing techniques to make your time at the dentist both approachable and comfortable. 

What Sets CityLife Dental Apart?

Painless Dental Care

Your comfort is our priority at CityLife Dental. Anxiety, fear of pain, and sensitive teeth keep many people out of the dentist’s chair, which could lead to worsening oral health over time. We don’t want this fear to keep patients out of the office. To that end, we utilize several sedation solutions such as single tooth anesthesia with The Wand® and painless injection techniques to keep your pain to a minimum and your comfort at a maximum.

Cosmetic Dentistry Specialty

Stained, yellow, chipped, broken, or uneven teeth can make or break your confidence. Those imperfections, while not necessarily impacting your oral health, can take a difficult emotional toll on your everyday life. CityLife Dental offers a wide array of cosmetic dentistry services to help you achieve that perfect, natural-looking smile. From whitening to veneers to full mouth reconstruction, we tailor our cosmetic dentistry offerings to reflect the needs of each patient.

Leading Invisalign® Providers ​

CityLife Dental is one of New York’s leading providers of Invisalign® clear aligners. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without the invasive look of traditional metal braces. The process is simple: we use a wand to make digital scans of your mouth in the office — no full-mouth molds required! — and we determine the course and length of treatment. We’ll even show you the projected results chairside at your first visit. The result is a perfect, straight smile.
