Welcome to Our Practice


We understand that looking for the right dentist is challenging especially in a large city as New York City. So at the office of RODERICK LUCENTE, DMD, PC, we strive hard to make your visit as comfortable and personable as possible.

Dr. Lucente understands that the dentist office isn’t the place most people would like to be but his gentle touch and friendly demeanor will make you feel at home. He will deliver your treatment plan and dental care in a non-judgmental but thorough way that will stay within your budget. His helpful staff will also ensure that your experience will be worthwhile. They will answer any questions you have about insurances and will get you started on the right track to getting the complete care that you need.

Dental Services

Your total oral health care is our main concern. Whether you are coming in for a general check-up/cleaning or for a full mouth rehabilitation, we promise to provide you with exceptional care possible as we enhance the natural beauty of your smile.

Dr. Lucente and staff are AMAZING, I cannot say enough good things about them. I chipped my tooth and he took care of me the next morning (working around his already booked appointments in order to fit me in)! He also did some cosmetic adjustments while I was in the chair, and I am much happier with my teeth appearance. I recommend everyone to see Dr. Lucente- he takes his time, is professional, and is a perfectionist!

Great service. Never having had a dentist in NY since I moved from the UK, very impressed with the personal service. Saw me on short notice after tooth broke, De Lucente did a great job of repairing the tooth and setting me up for a new crown. Easy to talk to, professional, and not a hint of pain throughout the procedure.

Dr. Lucente personally greeted me and promptly took me in for my appointment. During the cleaning he described his process to me and before leaving he told me how his office would be in touch regarding the next visit.
