  • Had an awesome experience here. It was my first time. The wait was comfortable and they saw me although I didn’t make an appointment. Which I recommend doing! The assistants were professional and friendly. The Dentist was sweet and professional as well! I will be back!

Staff at The Philadelphia Dentist Convenient, Comfortable, and Caring Dental Care

For over 27 years, patients in Northeast Philadelphia have been trusting their dental health care to The Philadelphia Dentist. We embrace the same values today that we did when we first opened our doors, with a focus on convenience, comfort, and a caring environment.


Our dentists are here for you every single day of the year, including holidays. Whether you develop a toothache on a Sunday morning or break a crown on Thanksgiving Day, you can count on us to provide the relief and quality dental treatment you need.

There aren’t many dentists who offer that level of convenience and even fewer who also provide high-quality dentistry, state-of-the-art technology, and advanced procedures like dental implant placement.


When you get here, we do everything we can to make sure that you feel comfortable and at ease. Our Philadelphia PA dental office is a warm and welcoming environment where you'll find comfy reclining sofas and fresh coffee.

Our dental care team focuses on patient comfort in everything we do, and that is why we also offer nitrous oxide sedation at no additional charge. Nitrous oxide or laughing gas will help take the edge off your anxiety and allow you to relax and get the critical treatment you need.


We don’t think you’ll find a more caring team of dental professionals than those at The Philadelphia Dentist. In many cases, patients come to us when they’re feeling their worst, and we sympathize with your concerns. We’ve all been there and understand that all you want is to feel better.

Dr. Schriftman and Dr. Javier Ambriz have both developed reputations as being gentle and caring Northeast Philadelphia dentists who treat their patients with kindness and respect. Our amazing dental team works together to let you know how much we care about you and value you as a patient.
