He explains all procedures as well as the medical necessities for such procedures. Braces are a pain, but Dr. Sandman makes it all bearable!” -Maria, Cresskill
“Dr. Sandman has been amazing with both of our sons, putting them at ease and truly caring about them. One Friday night during dinner, my son's orthodontic appliance busted and Dr. Sandman met us in his office - he was coming from Manhattan. It wasn't even a second thought. His staff is as caring as he is - every patient truly feels as if they are the most important patient.” -Jill, Norwood

My college age son still speaks with him!!” -Elisa, Tenafly
“Dr. Sandman is an exceptionally caring, kind, and knowledgeable orthodontist-just what my twins needed when getting their braces. He made what could have been a very unpleasant experience about as pleasant as could be with his calm and assuring manner. He also seems to have found the most friendly staff around; the office environment is welcoming and warm and his awesome rewards program is motivating for the kids. After getting her braces on the first day, my daughter actually said she's looking forward to going back for her checkup!” -Allysandra, Harrington Park
“Dr. Sandman is exceptional in all ways that matter when you're an orthodontist. He's very professional, thorough & friendly when speaking with parents & his staff. Too many doctors rush you. Also, he is very kind & friendly to children of all ages, making each feel comfortable & important. In addition, he took the extra time required to fix my daughter's broken appliance when we weren't aware it needed repair & were only scheduled for a quick check-up. Lots of doctors would have told patients they needed to schedule another appointment for a repair. Equally important, he has hired an outstanding staff who are all warm, professional & caring. We are very pleased with our decision to have our two daughters be under the care of Dr. Sandman & Bergen Orthodontics!” -Joan, Emerson
“Dr. Sandman is extremely friendly and gentle...he gains the children's trust by not tricking them or deceiving them.” -Toleen, Northvale
