A graduate of the prestigious NYU School of Dentistry, Queens Family Dental’s tooth sleuth, Dr. William G. Eliades, has kept his skills sharp with over 20 years of experience. He combines his dental pedigree with progressive technology such as digital x-rays and ophthalmology-grade microscopes to ensure each patient receives accurate diagnoses and effective treatment.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Alla Hart has been enhancing smiles and keeping teeth healthy at her private practice. Her preventative- and cosmetic-dentistry services include metal-free fillings, root canals, snoring treatments, and full mouth restoration. Dr. Hart can also remove coffee, soda, and graffiti stains from teeth and brighten them up to eight shades with Zoom! teeth whitening. Before any treatment, Dr. Hart meets with new patients to preform an exam and take digital x-rays, if needed. Her office also offers weekend and 24-hour emergency services in case a disagreement with the tooth fairy ends badly.
Advanced dental technology is the heart of Arch Dental Associates. At each of its locations, the team uses a variety of dental tools such as safe and accurate lasers. The Associates have nixed the traditional metal fillings for white, mercury-free composites, which repair cavities while blending in with the surrounding tooth. The staff employ a mix of services including general dentistry, prosthodontics, oral surgery, implant-, cosmetic-, sedation-, and holistic-dentistry, snoring and sleep apnea treatment, and facial aesthetic procedures. The team's embrace of technology shows its commitment to keeping patients comfortable, which is also achieved with oral-conscious sedation, a more effective method than the hygienist singing lullabies about a toothbrush and floss pick that are friends.
At Vanguard Dental, dentists Jackie Shayani and Camilo Achury each harness more than 22 years of experience to protect and enhance area grins. Dedicated to patient comfort, the staff takes mouths by the hand, and walks them step-by-step through treatments, whether they seek the smile-aligning services of Invisalign or the shine-boosting power of a routine cleaning or Zoom teeth whitening. The friendly office also helps perfect each burrito-trap with implants, veneers, and crowns, as well as tooth-colored fillings that hide evidence of cavities without attracting unwanted attention from metal detectors or lonely Geiger-counter enthusiasts.
As founder and managing director, Dr. Shayani practices dentistry part time in order to pursue philanthropy projects that include working with community and charity organizations by day and fighting the crime-laden cotton-candy industry by night. The office's clinical director, Camilo Achury, uses his continuing education to ensure the most advanced care for his patients, and remains an active force inside the dental community by serving on the Queens County Dental Society's board of directors.
Dr. Vadim Firdman and his staff of dental professionals at Luxury Dental P.C. are well-versed in the latest in dental technology, and strive to provide their patients with high-quality care, taking the time to answer questions and concerns and explain all manner of treatment options. In addition to performing thorough exams and snapping x-rays, the team conduct Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments and tartar-banishing Cavitron ultrasonic cleaning systems, which keep chompers healthy and smiles bright. They also specialize in laser gum treatments, safe procedures that remove unhealthy gum tissue so that mouths can return to their regular routines, such as biting the hands that don't feed them.
The professionals at Xpert Dental focus on cosmetic dentistry, helping clients put their best face forward with blazingly bright smiles. Before faces are fitted for a mouth-enhancing shine, a comprehensive oral exam is given to make sure morsel manglers are in top condition, while giving gums and other oral tissues a thorough checkup ($150). After the thorough glancing, the dentist will take plastic molds of your teeth, which are then filled with Nite White whitening agent before insertion ($525). Like the superstitious socks of hockey players, the molds need to be worn for an hour a day for three or more days, depending on the dentist's recommendation and the desired level of whitening. In a few moons, patients are likely to notice a lightening of staining resultant from medicines; smoking; drinking wine, tea, and coffee; and normal darkening through wear and tear. As an added bonus, Groupon purchasers will receive 25% off any additional cosmetic dental work.
