Dr. Robert Stern takes satisfaction in straightening crooked smiles. He and Dr. Tanya Stavisky are backed by an experienced team, and they all work toward helping their patients achieve ideal oral health and maintain a preventive care regimen. The dentists can install Invisalign or conventional braces to straighten overcrowded or unevenly spaced teeth or correct strong over- or underbites. They also have experience treating conditions such as sleep apnea by designing mouthpieces that keep the throat from becoming blocked during sleep and make dreams about being a professional basketball player more realistic.
For Dr. Mitchell Brudno, keeping his patients comfortable is one of his main concerns. While in the chair, patients can feel free to zone out with MP3 players or read the doctor's mind while he conducts fillings, cleanings, or root canals. Nitrous oxide provides the next level of relaxation while keeping the patient awake and responsive. After treatment, Dr. Brudno and the team help prolong comfort outside the office by educating patients on how to avoid toothaches and dental decay.

Comfort is also a key concern. So, to maximize relaxation, every exam room comes kitted out with headrest pillows, blankets, and flat-screen TVs, which can also help you ignore the fact that somewhere, right now, there is a clown. Other amenities include iPads, aromatherapy massage, and eye masks.
