Dr. Nathanson may be a three-time Jeopardy! champion, but at his dental practice, comprehensive care comes in first. A pioneer in dental technology, he fills his office with equipment aimed at optimizing each patient?s experience.

Dr. Nathanson also employs the CEREC system, which uses computer-generated images to create porcelain crowns and fillings in a single visit. No matter what the treatment, Dr. Nathanson and his team ensure that they stay on the cutting edge of dentistry by regularly taking continuing-education courses, attending seminars, and having coffee with the tooth fairy, and keep connected to the community by contributing to charitable organizations.

Dr. Joseph Frontera keeps his intellectual library up-to-date with continuous education, effectively combating oral ailments at his family-oriented Frontera Dental office. Wall-mounted TVs provide a pleasant distraction as molar pamperers buff up mouthscapes in either pristine adult treatment rooms or a colorful space tailored to tykes and homesick mermen with an ocean-themed wall mural. Catering to one patient at a time, the expert staff examines overall oral wellness, specifically scouring grins for cracks or decay. Then four bitewing x-rays fan out across jaw lines, unmasking issues that the eye can't see. A fluoride treatment and take-home toothbrush stem the encroachment of future plaque and strengthen enamel for healthier smiles that can chew through steel wool.
