Back when Dr. Jason Chao worked at Brooklyn's Lutheran Medical Center, he received the Resident of the Year award. Today, he brings that commitment to excellence to his family dentistry practice. Coffee and snacks occupy teeth waiting in the reception area, which resembles a cozy living room complete with candles and a rustic stone mantle. On their way to a treatment room, patients traverse a hallway marked by columns and a spacious, open design. Once they climb into the chair, guests bask in the glow of a personal television as Dr. Chao treats their chompers. Chairside TV screens aren't the only entertainment: Xboxes keep thumbs busy, while an Internet station helps gums ingest their doctor-recommended dose of cat videos. Such features echo the practice's dental technology, which includes intraoral cameras and digital x-rays.
