Kuncio Orthodontics

New York City, 315 W 70th St Ste 1J, New York, NY 10023

At Kuncio Orthodontics, our mission is to practice exceptional orthodontics and go above and beyond to ensure a pleasant and rewarding experience for our patients. When you come in for your first consultation, you will meet our educated and considerate staff as we delve into the details of your case. We don't just examine teeth - we analyze your entire medical history, your dental and facial aesthetic goals, and any time or budgetary restrictions for your treatment plan. Then we do a full oral exam, take x-rays and 3D scans to see exactly what is happening in your mouth and jaws - on and under the surface. Finally, Dr. Kuncio uses his education and expertise to create an individualized treatment plan specifically for you.

Our office is a state-of-the-art facility with the latest orthodontic technology. There are no limitations on our ability to give you the very best treatment possible with little to no discomfort - we have all of the most modern tools at our fingertips and will provide patients with the best care available anywhere. Whether its standard metal braces for your child, removable Invisalign aligners for your teenager, or custom lingual (behind the teeth) braces for your upcoming wedding, we have the optimal solution for you!

It is our goal to make this process easy and comfortable for you, so we have flexible appointment times that can accommodate the busiest of schedules, as well as a private treatment area for our adult patients.

Dr. Daniel Kuncio is a board-certified orthodontist on Manhattan's Upper West Side, and has been an attending orthodontist and assistant professor at both Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine and BronxCare Health System/Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Dr. Kuncio has earned numerous honors and publications in the field of orthodontics, but he believes that his greatest accomplishments are the healthy, attractive smiles on the thousands of patients who have come to his practice over the past decade. Dr. Kuncio is passionate about helping each patient feel confident in the beauty of their smile and the quality of their healthy bite, both on the day that they leave his office, as well as for years to come.

Dr. Kuncio’s orthodontic philosophy focuses on the health and wellness of each patient. He is guided by the principle that nature comes first, and treatment follows from there. This approach is one that begins with preventative measures, incorporates the latest orthodontic technology, and only resorts to surgical intervention and extraction of teeth when absolutely necessary. While all orthodontists work to correct a patient's natural teeth position, Dr. Kuncio's treatment plans take into account all of the patient's dental health and facial aesthetics.


Dr. Kuncio grew up in Manhasset, Long Island watching his mom’s dental practice thrive. As a child, he had braces - an experience he remembers as fascinating and rewarding. Dr. Kuncio began his education by earning a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (Cornell, 1998), a course of study that laid the foundation that allows him to understand the mechanics of the orthodontic devices he uses on a daily basis and empowers him to adapt to the latest technological developments in the field.

After several years of teaching, Dr. Kuncio earned his D.D.S. (University of Buffalo, 2003), and completed his orthodontic residency at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine (2006). This highly clinical hospital setting armed Dr. Kuncio with significant experience treating patients with a variety of challenging medical issues. Since then, Dr. Kuncio has gone on to publish original work in the field of orthodontics, and is the only doctor in the NYC area to publish findings on the topic of Invisalign®. Dr. Kuncio is also one of very few NYC orthodontists who has been twice (2007, 2016) board-certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, the highest honor in the profession.

Working with Kuncio has been an A+ experience from beginning to end. Our two children worked with Dr. Kuncio and his fantastic team for the past two+ years and have great appreciated their flexibility and kindness. Dolores is a phenomenal person and really appreciated all of her personal help as we've navigated orthodontic work in an ongoing pandemic. Wholeheartedly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a special touch and a dedicated team of caring professionals.
