We are Social! 



Welcome to Harlem Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, where we specialize in helping families achieve and maintain a lifetime of great oral health. Under the leadership of Dr. Ernest Robertson, our team is dedicated to providing high-quality care covering a full spectrum of restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry. We'll work with you to select from among our comprehensive treatment options to create a custom plan that will meet your needs and fit your budget and schedule. Contact us today to learn more about the Center.

Comprehensive Care in Unparalleled Comfort

When you visit our New York office, the first thing you’ll notice is how quaint and spacious it is. Five chairs in cozy, comfortable rooms, and a friendly, attentive staff ensure that your visit is as pleasant and relaxing as it is productive. This is in keeping with the Harlem Center for Aesthetic Dentistry’s long history of patient satisfaction. Since it opened in 1956, the Center has remained a landmark business in the Harlem community thanks to Dr. Robertson, whose skills as a dentist are matched by his expertise in developing an all-inclusive practice that provides patients with most of their dental care needs under one roof. From initial consultation to treatment, we devote unequalled, personal attention to accommodating your needs and comfort and treating you with the respect and consideration you deserve.

Setting the Stage for a Beautiful Smile

Dr. Robertson and his team approach every patient with the intention to help them achieve good oral health first, then work with the patient to achieve his or her cosmetic goals. We provide periodontal and orthodontic treatments, which improve the health of your smile's foundation and allow for more effective restorative and cosmetic care.

In addition to periodontal and orthodontic care, Dr. Robertson also places dental implants. The gold standard in restorative dentistry, dental implants mimic the function of teeth roots after tooth loss. These surgically inserted titanium posts can support all types of restorations, from dental crowns to dentures. Dr. Robertson began doing dental implants in 1988, and he is a graduate of the renowned Misch International Implant Institute. He has also worked with his restoration laboratory, Root Dental Laboratory, since he first began doing implants. Dental implants and restorations allow Dr. Robertson to create the functional, beautiful smile of your dreams.

Did You Know?

Harlem Center for Aesthetic Dentistry is one of the very few dental offices in the entire country to have an on-site cone beam scanner.

The 3D digital x-ray machine takes dental implant surgery to the next level of care. Our cone beam machine provides a comprehensive view of your teeth, gums, and jaw bone, so that we can create a surgical plan with optimal implant placement. With the aid of the cone beam scanner, Dr. Robertson is able to ensure that each patient's dental implants are placed in the safest, structurally sound parts of the jaw.


To provide our patients with the highest quality, most efficient treatments, our office is also equipped with state-of-the-art CEREC technology. We use this advanced system to provide customized, same-day restorations to enhance your smile in a single appointment. For the right candidates, we can design and place your dental crown, porcelain veneer, or small bridge on the same day we take digital impressions, streamlining your dental care.

Ensuring Your Comfort

Our quaint office is comfortable and welcoming for you and your family. Our team is focused on helping each member of your family feel safe and secure at our office. We provide nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation options for patients undergoing complex treatments or who are simply nervous or scared of their dental treatment.

Because we know that dental care can be an investment at times, we are happy to accept several financing options, including CareCredit℠, Springstone℠, and Comprehensive Finance. These low- and fixed-rate medical financing options can help you mitigate the cost of treatment. To further mitigate the cost of treatment, we provide an in-office discount plan, which can help your family afford the treatments you want and need.

Before you undergo any treatments, Drs. Robertson and James will ensure that you are well-educated and know what to expect. In many cases, Dr. Robertson can create a wax-up for patients to show them how a restorative or cosmetic change might change the look in their smiles.
