The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.
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.
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.
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.
