One of the most important management books of the last 25 years was In Search of Excellence, by Peters and Waterman. When you visit Dr. Geller’s office your search has ended and you have found true excellence. Dr. Barnett Geller is an incredibly talented and innovative dentist who is always on the cutting edge of the latest techniques in his several fields of practice. His philosophy is not to just do competent work, but to do the best possible work. In my case, he has restored a dental disaster to complete and sustainable health.
In this day of assembly line medical care, Dr. Geller stands out as a practitioner who takes the time to know his patients, and provides his undivided attention to the procedures he undertakes and the people who seek out his care. Every part of his practice communicates his commitment to quality:
The comfortable and well appointed waiting room;
The length of time he devotes to each patient;
The cleanliness and care given to the office’s dental equipment, and;
The fact that he does not allow a procedure to be considered complete, until it is as close to perfect as it can be.
When you visit Dr. Geller’s office you can be sure that you are receiving world-class dental care. His approach is rare and distinctive, and in my view, you will not find better dentistry anywhere.

Twenty-nine years ago, at a social function, I met a young Dr.Geller. I told him how after several bad experiences with dentists when I was younger, I was left with a fear of dentists. As we spoke, his enthusiasm for dentistry and his sense of detail gained my confidence. By the end of the evening, I set up an appointment for a consultation. My initial opinion of Dr. Geller was proven correct. His dentistry work, from a cleaning to major corrective work, is always done with patience, professionalism, and even a sense of artistry. He always seems concerned if I experience even the slightest discomfort. I always feel I am in the hands of an extremely skilled professional. His attention to his patient’s needs and perfection is rare to find in today’s world.
Also, many years ago, my brother was visiting me on a Saturday from the city. He was experiencing an extremely bad toothache and he knew he couldn’t wait until Monday to see a dentist. Nearing dinnertime on a Saturday, I called Dr. Geller to see what he would recommend. Of course he said, “come on over, I’ll open the office.” He immediately relieved my brother’s pain. My brother then began weekly visits for a year to Dr. Geller to take care of his long neglected teeth. After my brother completed his visits, he had picture perfect teeth, compliments of Dr. Geller.
I could also tell you the story of how Dr. Geller worked to complete one of my brother’s treatments before picking up his wife Shelly to take her to the hospital to have their first child delivered. Or I could tell you how Dr. Geller opened his office on a Sunday night to treat my daughter in an emergency, but I think you get to understand the character of Dr. Geller already.
Dr. Geller is a caring man who chose dentistry to help people. He then developed the highest skills in his profession of dentistry. His practice is one that will only accept perfection.
Dr. Geller was punctual with all my visits. I appreciated not having to wait because my time is valuable. This was possible because he saw one patient at a time. He did not run in and out of rooms seeing other patients during my appointment, like other offices I have been in. After his office was closed for the day, I was always able to reach him directly on his Blackberry. I did not have to deal with an answering service.
Dr. Geller is a perfectionist in his work ethic. He used only the highest quality gold alloys in my mouth and only sent my laboratory work to the highest caliber labs. I was totally satisfied with my porcelain crowns. They fit perfectly at the margins and were crafted to look like natural teeth. No one stopped me and said I had cosmetic dentistry. More importantly, the temporary teeth I wore while waiting for the “real ones” looked just as good as the permanent crowns. In my opinion, Dr. Geller certainly deserves the title “Best Dentist”.

Hi, Just a thank you for being our Dentist for over 25 years. I think that my husband Jack was one of your original implant patients and he still has the original implants that are connected to a bridge. I have about 16 implants that you put in my mouth and some are over 15 years old. They still work. All the other dental work that you have done, cleaning, fillings, bridges and of course the implants has been great. Selma Olchin

Once in a lifetime you meet a medical professional who exceeds all expectations. Dr. Geller is a truly talented dentist who does difficult work and makes it look easy. For over 35 years he has done extensive work on me and my wife’s teeth and the end result is far better than we ever expected. We call him “the man with the golden hands.” He is the best.

I met Dr. Geller more than 25 years ago and he is still my dentist. Professional, Personal, Knowledgeable, these are some of the qualities I like about Dr. Geller. Dr. Geller is a very punctual professional who respects your time and his patients respect his. With a busy work schedule the last thing you want to do is sit in a doctor’s waiting room for hours. Dr. Geller is a perfectionist. I had many crowns and multiple implants and with each procedure, the use of temporary covering was required. Each and every time, Dr. Geller meticulously prepared the temporaries in such a way that no one would know that it was a “tooth under construction” he matched the color and made sure it was a perfect fit. After any surgery, you can always expect a call from the Dr. just to make sure you are comfortable. I am most impressed that each year Dr. Geller attends classes/seminars which enable him to keep up with the latest medical procedures available. It’s not everyday you find a man as dedicated to his profession and loves what he does as Dr. Geller. It’s like his hands was made for Dentistry. Sarah Black
