Neon lights, multiple arcade games, and patterned wrap-around couches. This is not the interior decor of a Las Vegas hot spot, but rather, the inside of The Stein Dental Group office. This aesthetic is just one of the methods that Dr. Michael B. Stein—a Tufts University graduate and former dentist in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps—employs to help ease clients' nerves as they come to the office for routine cleanings, implants, root canals, and orthodontic procedures. Dr. Stein works alongside eight other dental specialists and a multilingual staff, all of whom help to create a relaxing experience by listening to each client's dental concerns, thoroughly explaining each procedure, and even providing IV sedation to hyperventilating shadows.
At Kids Care Dental Group, the dentists make kids comfortable by using a variety of gentle, dental techniques.

The dental defenders at Stamford Dental Group keep chompers healthily effervescent and stave off all manner of mouth-menacing maladies. During an exam, these trained tooth technicians will meticulously inspect for any traces of health hazards, including gingivitis, oral cancer, or long-stuck popcorn kernels growing into popcorn trees. Then they’ll explore oral ecosystems from all angles with a series of bitewing x-rays and an innovative Cone Beam CT scan machine, which snaps three-dimensional digital images in mere seconds, significantly reducing radiation exposure, as well as the risk of fidgety molars prematurely breaking their pose. After the exam, a thorough scrubbing of enameled surfaces leaves teeth ready to pleasantly shine during dates, wedding photos, or Mr. Ed impersonation contests.
With the belief that oral health is an extension of overall health, certified Oral Systemic Balance practitioner Dr. Leonard Kundel bridges the medical and dental communities in order to cosset patients with comprehensive, effective treatments. Dr. Kundel demonstrates this approach by working with patients’ physicians and combs through medical histories to gain a panoramic view of overall health. Armed with this knowledge, he then peers around oral spaces in search of localized dental issues. Dr. Kundel’s multidiscipline approach, combined with the office's advanced technology, leaves patients safe from oral issues that can affect the entire body, such as infections and double-lives as a sword swallower.

Dr. Barocas takes the time to explain all available treatment options and tailor dental plans to suit individual budgets, expectations, and tar-chewing habits.
