Dr. Jonathan Abenaim knows that visiting the dentist's office can be stressful. That's why he outfits his Jonathan Dental Spa waiting room with soothing touches such as aromatherapy, health-conscious soft drinks, and leather massage chairs. He and his team even let patients select a DVD to watch on virtual reality glasses during their procedures.
Dr. Abenaim was the recipient of the E. Howell Smith Award in Prosthetic Dentistry upon graduating from the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine. He is also a diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a professor at the NYU dental implant clinic. His services range from fillings and fitting mouths with porcelain veneers to Zoom! teeth whitening, 45-minute pain-free sessions that brighten smiles by an average of eight shades.
Drs. Anthony M. Pallotta and Adam Rauzman don’t just keep patients’ teeth healthy with regular check-ups—they also keep them smile-ready with cosmetic dentistry services. Invisalign-certified Dr. Rauzman straightens crooked teeth with clear removable retainers or covers them up with porcelain veneers. The duo’s one-hour teeth-whitening treatments turn up teeth’s wattage, prepping grins for special occasions, such as job interviews or contests to see who can smile the longest without closing his or her mouth.
Doctors Joseph and Deborah Lozito created The Institute for Medical Weight Loss and Nutrition in an effort to curtail the nation's growing obesity epidemic. The two pool their 45 years of combined medical experience with the expertise of CBS 2 News–featured nutritionist Jennifer Burns Katafigiotis to develop customized weight-loss programs. The institute's weight-loss plans include a combination of meticulous medical analysis, hours-long tickle-fights, and meal replacements. The meal replacements have been shown to help participants adjust to healthier portion sizes and shed pounds.
