Longtime LES Dental Practice Moving Into Holiday Inn Building on Delancey Street

Except for the corner unit – currently a Verizon Wireless outpost – none of the other retail spaces at the Holiday Inn building on Delancey Street are occupied. They’ve been sitting empty since the grand opening three years ago.

That’s about to change, though. A longtime Lower East Side dental practice is moving here from Grand Street. Upstairs from the soon-to-change Retro Bar & Grill.

Doctor Dmitry Gerber recently announced his intentions to relocate the dental practice from its home of twenty-eight years. The store at 150 Delancey is apparently “bigger and better,” and patients can expect to get a checkup here in about three months. This according to a computer printout in the front windows. There is a temporary office for the interim at 143 Essex.

Gerber previously held court at 408 Grand Street, in the one-story office adjacent to Rite Aid. His reputation isn’t too great, though, at least according to a pair of Yelp reviews. Perhaps the new location will bode better. One testimonial…

I chose this place for its closeness to my home.  Bad mistake.  Three years ago, I had a crown done, and now, I have to extract the tooth.  So much money for a crown and it couldn’t prevent it from rotting underneath.  I gave it two stars instead of one because I have another dentist who is even worse.
