With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Sparkle Dental's Dr. Rohit Z. Patel—a 30-year tooth-tending veteran whom Westchester Magazine named the Top Endodontist in Mount Vernon in 2009—leads a team of top-notch dental professionals as they brighten discolored chompers with Zoom! in-office whitening treatments. The skilled dentists, many of whom hold teaching positions, hospital privileges at Montefiore Medical Center, and several world records for breath holding, treat teeth to the Zoom! whitening method, which is designed for safe, immediate shade-shifting results of at least 6–10 shades. The pain-free process takes about an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel, which is activated by a specially designed Zoom! light. Clients kick back and assess their gums' hospitality as the gel settles into teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingest.
A general dentist trained at NYU College of Dentistry, Dr. Jeffrey Golden leads Williamsbridge Dental's gentle staff of board-certified dentists and certified hygienists, all of whom have at least five years of experience. Armed with digital-imaging technology, tooth wardens search out hidden cavities and expose patients to around 80% less radiation than a traditional x-ray (a $75 value). The dentist also checks for signs of gum disease, sharing tips for keeping chompers healthy and happy (a $42 value). A highly trained hygienist then banishes tartar, stains, and stubborn bits of masking tape with a thorough teeth cleaning (a $92 value), rounding out the one-hour appointment. With daytime and evening hours, the clinic caters to schedules stuffed with business meetings and soccer riot practices.
At Bronx River Dental, Dr. Irena Kravtsov greets her patients with a smile and a sincere, "hello." Though that could be said for many dentists, Dr. Kravtsov is trilingual, often greeting her patients in English, Russian, or Spanish. Her ability to speak the many languages of her patients is just one of the ways she works to make her clients feel at ease in her office. Her extensive education—which includes a residency at New York City’s Metropolitan Hospital Center and a degree from Rutgers University—gives her the tools to provide her patients with the best care possible. She’s also involved with the community, providing dental services to underprivileged children during Give Kids A Smile Day and other programs. With all the doctor’s efforts to make her office a welcoming and inclusive place, trips to Bronx River Dental are more comfortable for patients who have a fear of dentists, anxiety surrounding drills, or allergies to office waiting rooms.

Dr. Jeffrey Gelb whips crooked teeth into shape with the latest orthodontic technology, including Invisalign, an advanced treatment that straightens smiles in small steps with discreet aligners. During the half-hour consultation, Dr. Gelb takes a panoramic x-ray of the patient's mouth, allowing the orthodontist to capture all the flora and fauna that a point-and-shoot x-ray misses. While the patient relaxes in a massaging dental chair, Dr. Gelb thoroughly examines the mouth to determine whether teeth are good candidates for Invisalign. Mouths that pass the entrance exam to the academy of white picket fences can begin the process of procuring Invisalign retainers at that time or schedule an appointment at the modern office for a later date. Full Invisalign treatments range in price with Gelb Orthodontics from $6,000 to $6,500.
