At Vanguard Dental, dentists Jackie Shayani and Camilo Achury each harness more than 22 years of experience to protect and enhance area grins. Dedicated to patient comfort, the staff takes mouths by the hand, and walks them step-by-step through treatments, whether they seek the smile-aligning services of Invisalign or the shine-boosting power of a routine cleaning or Zoom teeth whitening. The friendly office also helps perfect each burrito-trap with implants, veneers, and crowns, as well as tooth-colored fillings that hide evidence of cavities without attracting unwanted attention from metal detectors or lonely Geiger-counter enthusiasts.
As founder and managing director, Dr. Shayani practices dentistry part time in order to pursue philanthropy projects that include working with community and charity organizations by day and fighting the crime-laden cotton-candy industry by night. The office's clinical director, Camilo Achury, uses his continuing education to ensure the most advanced care for his patients, and remains an active force inside the dental community by serving on the Queens County Dental Society's board of directors.
