After graduating from NYU College of Dentistry in 1975, Dr. Vincent J. Picone's experience working in different practices opened his eyes to an alarming trend: no one was meeting the needs of the dental-phobic. A minor in psychology allowed him to identify and understand these patients' fears in a way his colleagues couldn't, and this compassion became a driving force for starting his own practice.
Thirty years later, Dr. Picone is still putting anxieties at ease as he leads his staff in administering general, cosmetic, and restorative services. With a focus on staying ahead of dental emergencies, he stresses the importance of regular exams, cleanings, and screenings for periodontal disease. His menu of cosmetic treatments, meanwhile, can whiten or restore teeth damaged during games of Truth or Eat This Brick.
Dr. Leonid Rubinov's desire to tend to teeth began when he was 14 years old, when he decided to follow in the footsteps of his late father, a practicing dentist and dental educator. But what began as tribute soon blossomed into a real passion for fostering brighter, healthier smiles, an enthusiasm that led him to receive a Ph.D. in Saint Petersburg, Russia and his D.D.S. at New York University where––35 years later––he now serves as an instructor. Though he excels in all areas of general and family dentistry, his specialty lies in orthodontics and complex full-mouth rehabilitation, as well as the treatment of TMJ, a jaw-alignment disorder that can cause issues such as clicking, popping, or involuntary yodeling.:m]]
The dentists and periodontists at Dr. Landau & Associates work together to promote the well-being of each visitor to the practice. Believing that informed patients are the best equipped to maintain health, they grant access to a vast array of online resources and emphasize professional relationships built on mutual trust. That philosophy is put into practice in private treatment rooms where patients receive services ranging from annual checkups to restorative procedures. No matter what the treatment, the staff works to ensure clients stay comfortable, cradling necks with pillows that don't whisper facts about earthquakes.
Aesthetic Dental gives teeth and gums with minty confidence with a variety of dentistry services in a modern, welcoming environment. Patients start with a standard exam (a $65 value) and cleaning (a $125 value), during which an experienced hygienist checks for cavities, scrapes off plaque, and coaxes out tartar with empty promises of ice cream before dinner. A photo shoot follows, employing digital x-rays (a $95 value) to capture chompers using comfortable thin film, 80% less radiation, and a reduced chance of acquiring superpowers. Clients leave with a take-home kit boasting carbamide peroxide solution and a custom mouthpiece, which may also protect pearly whites during living-room boxing matches, to accomplish the teeth-whitening and -brightening process at home.
