Dr. Orlando has served the Manhattan community since 2006 and has quickly become one of the most sought out dentists in New York City. He is focused on personalized, quality care in which the patient is the center of attention. Dr. Orlando understands that every patient has different expectations and goals and tailors his treatment accordingly.

Dr. Orlando is highly trained in all aspects of cosmetic general dentistry and has maintained a firm belief that a healthy mouth is integral to a healthy body. In fact, Dr. Orlando is a founding member of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health. Dr. Orlando believes in his patients having a healthy, stable oral environment as a foundation before cosmetic, reconstructive work is completed and is a firm believer in minimally invasive dentistry – basically treating disease at its inception rather than a wait and see approach. It is essential to Dr. Orlando that he educates his patients on the connection between mouth and body, stressing the link between oral health and overall general health.
