The husband-and-wife team of Drs. Darren Tong and Mariliza Lacap has 20 years of experience in dental implants, cosmetic procedures, and orthodontics. Determined to make patients feel as comfortable as possible, the dentists and their team of seasoned hygienists, assistants, and patient coordinators first get to know patients by holding a Q&A session with each tooth before investigating them for decay and other issues. Each treatment comes with special perks, such as relaxing paraffin hand treatments. Instead of using drills, the dentists remove decay with quiet electric tools that reduce heat and vibration while conserving more of the patient’s tooth. To make sure decay is removed, the dentists follow up with laser therapy to zap away the final bits of decay that may remain. In addition to keeping adult teeth in tip-top chomping shape, the team also pays special attention to the youngest smiles with dedicated pediatric dentistry services.
After earning his master's degree in traditional Chinese medicine, Peter W. Tricarico honed his skills in several Shanghai hospitals and clinics. His drive to help others through holistic treatments stuck with him when he returned to the United States and prompted him to found Sleepy Hollow Acupuncture, LLC, where he administers cupping and herbal formulas in addition to five styles of acupuncture.
By aligning needles to specific bodily pathways, he strives to remedy ailments that range from headaches to stress to smoking addictions. Each disposable needle is sterilized and individually packaged before sessions, and Peter hides them in haystacks afterward. He also accommodates patrons with busy schedules by holding weekend and evening appointments and making house calls.
Dr. Richard Donelli and his team of dental devotees tackle the stains and plaque that keep teeth from fulfilling their pearly potential. The Zoom! process anoints incisors with a whitening gel that interacts with a special light and breaks down discoloring pigments deposited by coffee, nicotine, or running smile first into an ink storm, leaving teeth up to eight shades whiter. Patients can while away the one-hour procedure with the help of provided iPods and noise-cancelling headphones or personal televisions.
For many, trips to the dentist awaken old childhood worries—fears of having cavities, getting fillings, or being admonished for not flossing enough. Dr. Ahmad Sedehi and his staff understand these concerns; that’s why they strive to assuage any such fear during every visit. Their helpful attitudes and open dialogue make the office feel a bit cozier and the treatments feel a bit less daunting. The multilingual staff of English, Armenian, Farsi, and Spanish speakers can also ease minds from around the world. Their gentle chairside manner, combined with Dr. Sedehi’s proficient blend of preventive care, surgical prowess, and cosmetic expertise, helps patients keep teeth in tiptop shape and reduce the number of future visits needed down the road.
Dr. Ahmad Sedehi began his career in dentistry 27 years ago, and ever since, he has continuously honed his skills with continuing-education courses. At Cliffside Park Dental Group, he keeps teeth and gums in mint condition with preventive cleanings as well as restorative treatments such as fillings and root canals. Dr. Sedehi values open communication with patients and doesn't allow language to bar that communication: he speaks English, Spanish, Armenian, Farsi, and Turkish, and his assistant speaks Korean.
