About

Robert G. Veligdan, DMD, is a nationally recognized general and restorative dentist that embodies a Holistic approach to treatment. He has specialized in minimally invasive care and in creating beautiful smiles for over 39 years in Manhattan, New York City. His list of accomplishments rivals the number of happy patients he’s helped over the years. Becoming the first dentist worldwide to perfect porcelain laminate veneers is one of the many crowning achievements in his dentistry career. Now commonplace, in the 1980s, the use of porcelain laminate veneers was considered a radical dental treatment because it was entirely new and it was a conservative alternative to full crowns. Dr. Veligdan is one of the first dentists to have perfected the technique and help develop the cement used to bond veneers to teeth. He introduced Porcelain Veneers to a national audience as part of a Smile Makeover on the ABC TV program "Good Morning America." The first video explaining the techniques for porcelain laminate veneers was written, directed, and produced by Dr. Veligdan. It's been shown to hundreds of dentists by Columbia University’s School of Dental and Oral Surgery Continuing Education Department, where he has served as a clinical professor for over 20 years. Dr. Veligdan’s journey started at a young age when his passion for dentistry first blossomed. In 1975, he graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental and Oral Surgery. This achievement marked the beginning of his outstanding career in cosmetic dentistry. Over the decades, he’s made several appearances on CBS, FOX, CNN, and CNBC, and has been featured in GQ magazine. Helping restore beautiful smiles to the people of New York City has been an incredible experience for him and his wife, Rosa, a world-renowned concert pianist. Because of his expertise, passion, and devotion to implementing the latest trends in cosmetic surgery, it’s easy to make Dr. Veligdan your first choice for any cosmetic procedure. Dr. Veligdan is ready to help you gain confidence with customized treatment plans. Call or book your appointment online to get started today.
