After studying in Bombay, India, and serving on Tufts University School of Dental Medicine’s faculty, Dr. Rustam K. Devitre opened his eponymous office. Today, more than 25 years later, he and his supporting staff of dentists employ their expertise in such fields as implant surgery, wisdom-teeth extractions, and smile restoration to keep teeth healthy and shiny. Hygienists not only clean teeth in preparation for a dental examination but also teach patients at-home care methods so that they can live forever.
Dr. Luis Del Castillo, a professor of prosthodontics at Tufts University, overhauls smiles with veneers calibrated to each tooth's dimensions for a natural, snug fit. After a 15-minute consultation, patients relax as Dr. Luis equips up to 10 chompers with pristine covers in an up to five-hour session. Veneers can bring oral pearls into alignment to create an even smile, as well as veil a variety of mouth-bound worries, such as chips, worn teeth, gaps, discoloration, and saber teeth. Dr. Luis’s commitment to dentistry extends beyond the office and into the classroom, as he holds a faculty appointment at Tufts University and teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate students the science of fostering oral health. When not enlightening the minds of future dentists or drawing up plans to break into the tooth fairy's vault, Dr. Luis can be found lecturing nationally and abroad on implants, fixed prosthodontics, and complete dentures.
The Boston Center For Oral Health is designed to be a unified hub for comprehensive dental care, and it’s easy for its eight dentists to work together as a team. Many have known each other for more than 25 years, since they were students together in dental school. One of the most seasoned is Dr. Morreale, a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and Master of the Academy of General Dentistry. His 30-year career has been spent mostly in the field of cosmetic dentistry, allowing him to fit crowns, veneers, and implants seamlessly into rows of natural teeth.
Not many people look forward to booking the necessary biannual tooth cleaning appointment at the dentist. For healthy gums and teeth, getting regular cleanings is a must, but past experiences have scared away some individuals to the point they only return when the pain starts. Before the toothache begins, step down into Dr. Mark Beal’s comfortable lower level Newbury Street office where he and his friendly team specialize in gentle cosmetic and general dentistry. From cleanings, polishing and fillings to extractions and X-rays, Beal and his staff thoroughly check gums for gingivitis or any sign of tooth decay. The office is clean and well-maintained, and service throughout is both professional and courteous. Best of all, Dr. Beal accepts most insurances, keeps convenient early-morning hours and stays open on Saturdays.
The World's Fair of Money is a huge show sponsored by the American Numismatic Association devoted to the exhibition and history of currency. With more than 1,000 of the nation's most prominent coin dealers displaying their gargantuan inventory of coins, paper money, medals, tokens, and more, the World's Fair of Money is equal parts coin show and family-friendly activity. While kids are engaged in getting their world mint passport stamped at each international mint location along the fair's promenade (they'll receive a coin from each participating country, including Australia, China, France, and the Isle of Man), serious collectors can take in the educational seminars or the fair's museum-quality exhibits presented by the Smithsonian Institution, the ANA Edward C. Rochette Money Museum, and private collectors. Whether flying solo or traveling with the entire family in a tiny silver car or accelerated thimble, the World's Fair of Money offers a pleasing sight for every visiting numismatist.
