Named the “Zentist” by the New York Times, Dr. Sonny Oliva brings his passion, energy and love of innovation to the world of dentistry. He has built a loyal clientele who praise his warm, engaging personality, gentle manner and straightforward medical advice. In addition to providing exceptional cosmetic and general dentistry, Dr. Oliva has transformed the often-feared dental visit into a comfortable, and even relaxing experience for his patients.
A native of the Philippines, his interest in the field was destined: a dental laboratory was the family business. Having immigrated to the United States in 1992, he worked as a dental technician and assistant until enrolling in NYU College of Dentistry. He graduated in 2003 and immediately entered into private practice.
His Midtown location offers a full range of dental services in a beautiful loft-like setting with luxurious spa amenities. Dental Aesthetic Studio, the in-house dental laboratory, offers custom hand-made veneers, crowns and dentures that are professionally-fitted conveniently on-site.
He lives with his wife, Vera and son, Aidan in Manhattan.
