I found NYCCD by conducting a bit of on-line research. I had a chipped bit of a porcelain veneer to attend to. After living in Houston for the better part of 25 years, I was apprehensive about finding a dentist as wonderful as my dentist in Houston (the splendid Ronald Konig). The office is elegant; it’s located in a town home and has a serene feeling. The ladies at the reception desk were capable, efficient, and friendly. I was seen by Emanuel Layliev exactly on time. He quickly analyzed the problem, recommended the least complicated (and least expensive) course of action, and then with great care and skill made the repair.
He and his technician were friendly and engaging. I returned a few weeks later for a teeth cleaning. It was expertly done by a wonderful technician, Shayla. After the cleaning, Dr. Layliev examined his earlier work (about which I had no complaint) and determined to do a bit of polishing, at no charge. Each time, I paid by credit card for the full amount of the services. Full payment is required. I received a partial reimbursement from my dental insurance (the claim was submitted by NYCCD). No doubt there are many places in or near New York City where the work can be performed for less cost.
However, knowing that I am in capable hands means a great deal to me, and the extra expense is well worth it. I once had some very questionable dental work performed by a dentist with whom I was not familiar, and it is a mistake I intend never to duplicate. I am pleased to have found dental nirvana in NYC.”

“It’s been long overdue for me to write a review about my favorite dental office in the world, and believe me I’ve been to a few in different countries as I’ve moved around a few times. Aside from being extremely professional, everybody in this office is very friendly and welcoming, and in a fast-paced city like NYC they actually have all the time in this world for you. I have been worked on by both Dr. Golub and Dr. Layliev and they are both unique in their own ways. Dr. Golub blends in his artistic abilities and talent with his dental experience and gives you the best advice with your aesthetic work and brings it to life. He makes your hours on dental chair fly by entertaining you with his fun stories and sometimes some videos on youtube. Ccool, right?! And, Dr. Layliev is a perfectionist who would go out of his way to accomplish magically impeccable work. (He actually redid some work for me without me even complaining about it – not to mention completely free of charge). Glad I have an excuse to go back there regularly for check ups/cleaning with Shayla.
Overall I can’t tell you enough about this office; have your work done here by professionals once and for all. They will make you smile, and will give you a beautiful smile! I’ll be back here for the rest of my life no matter where in the world I will be living. Thank you guys!”

“I just wanted to thank you again for my beautiful teeth!! I don’t think they could have come out better, and that’s solely a result of all the time and thoughtful attention you put into them. I am so lucky to have found you! Thanks, too, for fixing the veneer on bottom, that’s extremely nice of you.”

“First of all, I just want to tell you how profoundly you have changed Robin’s life with her glorious new smile. She looks and feels fabulous and for a young girl that really means a lot. You did a ridiculously great job, as always, and we are so very grateful for your artistry, and “bedside” manner. I thank you, Robin thanks you. Thank you. The teeth are spectacular!”
- Rina & Robin, Mom and StudentConnecticut
“Dr. Golub-Evans is not only a warm and friendly person, but he is a true artist. He turned my yellow child like teeth into a mature and radiant smile. He carefully listened to every one of my requests and gave me a smile more perfect for my face than I ever could have imagined. I feel more confident than I ever have in my life and I can’t stop smiling. I am truly grateful.”
- Debby, Portfolio Investment AnalystNew York
“You have got such beautiful teeth,” is the compliment I get most. People might compliment you in a different fashion with various motivations, but this one is the most common and genuine one I get. “They are so white, gleaming—just perfect,” and I always respond, with a huge smile of course, that “I am just lucky, thank you.” But, I leave out that I’m lucky to have the best dentist, my honored Dr. Golub!”

“You are the most refreshing and wonderful dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being worked on by you and Dr. Layliev. I am truly taken back by your email and the kindness it shows. I can honestly say, up to this day, I’ve never in my life received a gift from a dentist. My dental problem truly was a very long, expensive, and at times, dark road (over 2 years to be exact!), and you and Dr. Layliev were the light at the end of the tunnel. I am so happy with my finished product and with my new pearly whites and I am having a ball flashing them all over town! I find myself staring into the mirror and not believing what is looking back at me in my mouth. My two caps look far better than veneers I have seen others wearing. I am so, so happy with the final product.
You run an incredibly efficient and talented office, and Sandra is the most professional, patient, and wonderful person I have ever dealt with at a dentist’s office. Your entire staff is a dream team. My mom is coming in to see you next, as she absolutely loves the transformation in my smile. When I went to my mom’s spa in Larchmont the women were amazed at how beautiful my teeth were. And I am so proud to give your name and the office’s phone number out to others.
Not only are you and Dr. Layliev exceptional dentists, and artists, but you are my new heroes. You gave me my confidence back. A million thank you’s will never suffice for how grateful I am that I came to you and your office. I feel so blessed to have been worked on by such craftsmen.”

“What can I say, but “THANK GOODNESS” I found Dr. Layliev. I noticed that I started to have issues with my teeth. Being a model/actor, I needed someone who can understand and help me with my concerns…I’m so glad I made that call to Dr. Manny (easier to pronounce) and made that consultation/app’t. He’s such a nice person who sincerely cares, listens to you, professional and ahead of the times..He’s knowledgeable, takes pride in what he does and it has to be perfect. Oh, and…IT DOESN’T HURT! The staff are just wonderful people! It’s nice to go there and be greeted with a warm Hello and a Smile. The office is comfortable and has a relaxing environment. No stress there! I found my new dentist just in time! Mahalo Nui Loa.”
- Barbara, Model/ActressNew York City
“I’ve never met a dentist that I actually look forward to going to see. He is gentle, accommodating and genuinely concerned about the patient’s well being. All that in addition to he is a true artist and good at what he does.”
Dr. Layliev has been a life saver in fixing so much of my previous dental work done by doctors who don’t have the same keen eye and attention to detail. Thank you Layliev…big smiles all because of YOU!!”

“A terrible experience left me with a bone-deep fear of dentists. My teeth were grey & black as a child, and yellow & pitted as an adult, so after seeing an article about NYCCD & its caring staff I thought this might be the office that could help me (though it took years to gather the courage to go for a consultation).
All my life I’d equated dentists with misery – just sitting in the chair would start my trembling and tears. But Dr. Layliev changed all that. I didn’t realize what a burden this flaw in my appearance had become until he lifted it from my shoulders. His compassionate care helped me confront and overcome my crippling fear.
I never thought I’d have a smile I could show, let alone show off! Friends can’t put their finger why I seem different; some say I look years younger and attribute it to my now constant smile. Most telling: I wore a cream colored blouse recently – for the first time my teeth were the whiter of the two!”
