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.
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.
Each Gentle Dental outpost is home to a cadre of friendly, experienced dentists and hygienists who perform everything from oral surgery to cosmetic dentistry. Today’s deal gives you an immaculate trinity of their teeth-handling talents; a thorough cleaning leaves your broccoli killers and meat destroyers pristine, a quick x-ray of molars lets your doctor see any abnormalities not visible to either the naked eye or to plaid, high-def monocles, and a complete exam checks for potential problems such as cavities, gum troubles, or evidence of stress-induced nighttime teeth grinding caused by the cancellation of the Knight Rider remake.
Though they work from a single office, Dr. Mauro Stuparich and Dr. Alexandra Nouel are both doctors and architects. This dual specialization stems from their training in prosthodontics—the art of rebuilding teeth with crowns, bridges, implants, and other apparatuses. After completing prosthodontics programs at Tufts University, then attending advanced courses on surgical implants at the Misch Institute, the two dentists took their expertise to Boston's historic Electric Carriage House. There, they administer a wide range of restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry services to clients of all ages.
Assistance from a congenial staff and advanced technology helps the dentists ensure quality, custom results. For example, Dr. Nouel deftly crafts natural-looking crowns using CEREC systems, which can create the coverings in a single day. Whether their clients want to improve their teeth with porcelain veneers or a regulation cleaning, the dentists can rely on several amenities to ensure patients’ comfort during appointments. The staff members encourage clients to bring their own music, and they can administer sedation to quell lingering anxieties. Clients also have the option of donning protective eyewear. The dark glasses guard against particles and the glare of the overhead light while convincing the dentist that every patient is the Terminator.
The doctors at Dental Associates of New England count a former Miss USA, players and dancers from the Boston Celtics, and players and cheerleaders from the New England Patriots as clients. The talented team of dentists attracts clientele both in and out of the spotlight, thanks to a lengthy list of services, ranging from routine cleanings and root canals to porcelain restorations, dental implants, and periodontal and TMJ treatments. Dr. John Meola Jr. owns and oversees the practice, which focuses on complete cosmetic makeovers, Zoom! teeth whitening, and Invisalign.
