I am so thankful to have found Elite Dental of Staten Island! I’m extremely happy with all of the services they offer and I enjoy seeing the staff during my visits. My teeth look phenomenal!

My family and I have been patients at Elite Dental for over 20 years. Appointment times are honored, yet they are always available for emergency visits. Elite’s highly professional and friendly office staff make for a pleasant office visit. Dr. Acker, his assistants and hygienists take the time to explain everything. They stay current in their practice and use of technology. I have the utmost trust in them and recommend them highly.
