At South End Dental Center, Drs. Navtej Singh and Jasmeet Kaur lead a dental team that performs everything from cleanings to teeth-whitening treatments to veneer placements. Helping them along the way are state-of-the-art tools such as digital x-rays and computerized anesthesia.
Teeth have many natural enemies: black coffee, red wine, cigarettes, and rocks that happen to be delicious. Fortunately, they also have two allies in Drs. Kaveeta Channamsetty and Sid Tucker of Pearl Dental. Both dentists specialize in cosmetic and implant dentistry, though their regular exams prevent teeth from needing too much of either. Whether they're filling cavities or replacing teeth with dental implants, they draw on more than 25 years of combined experience to get the job done right.
The dental defenders at Stamford Dental Group keep chompers healthily effervescent and stave off all manner of mouth-menacing maladies. During an exam, these trained tooth technicians will meticulously inspect for any traces of health hazards, including gingivitis, oral cancer, or long-stuck popcorn kernels growing into popcorn trees. Then they’ll explore oral ecosystems from all angles with a series of bitewing x-rays and an innovative Cone Beam CT scan machine, which snaps three-dimensional digital images in mere seconds, significantly reducing radiation exposure, as well as the risk of fidgety molars prematurely breaking their pose. After the exam, a thorough scrubbing of enameled surfaces leaves teeth ready to pleasantly shine during dates, wedding photos, or Mr. Ed impersonation contests.
The father-son team at the helm of The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, Doctors George and Robert Rioseco, share 50 years and a commitment to maintaining both the health and appearance of their patients' teeth. Their mission is echoed in the Frank Lloyd Wright quote on the wall of the office: "Form and function should be one, joined in spiritual union." When coupled with the zen-like décor of the office, the dentists' levels of experience keep patients at ease. Much like a brain surgeon who works at night as an anti-brain surgery lobbyist, The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry leads a double life, functioning also as a training center where dentists from around the world come to learn about the latest dental technologies.
Dr. Scott Asnis and Dr. Eric Echelman protect and enhance smiles with preventive and cosmetic services inside their office's sunny treatment rooms. Each room comes with DVD collections and televisions, headphones for personal music, and neck pillows, as well as warm towels and blankets for thawing evening dinners. In addition to patient comfort, knowing about the latest dental technologies is of the utmost importance to the dentists, who use a soft-tissue dental laser, VELscope oral-cancer screening technology, and cosmetic digital imaging.
Dr. Sitki Murat Dogus wants patients to feel comfortable. He and his team understand the kinds of anxieties that pass through patients' heads before events such as dental visits and asking favorite monarchs for their autographs. For that reason, the team sets patients at ease with their philosophy of active, open communication. The team listens to all concerns, and before conducting oral surgeries, implants, or root canals, takes time to explain each step in the procedure. Patients who are still nervous can relax with safe, effective sedation, such as nitrous oxide.
Dr. Dogus also passes down his knowledge of prosthodontics to future dentists as a clinical instructor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. His own education also extends beyond his years of dental school with postgrad training in implant dentistry and a full-time residency in prosthodontics.
