At Jersey City Dental, Dr. Andrew S. Paek leads a staff of experienced hygienists and technicians in treating each patient that walks through the door on an individual level. The team helps alleviate any anxieties by listening to patients’ concerns, as well as taking the time to explain each procedure. In addition to exams, cleanings, and periodontal services, Dr. Andrew’s menu of cosmetic-dentistry techniques, such as veneers and whitening services, glamorize mouths without the hassle of pasting on celebrity photos.
At Vada Spa, staff members devote their international training to beauty rituals that use natural and organic products from GM Collins and Pevonia Botanica. Two floors accommodate spacious mani-pedi bars, styling stations, and private, candle-lit treatment rooms that all swirl with activity until 9 p.m. every day. The owners of the Spa make sure that each service is administered by a true specialist––laser technicians only do laser procedures and aestheticians never hand over their facial duties to an assistant or nearby welder. "We're very particular about who we hire," one of the spa owners says. "It has to be someone who's experienced. We don't have anyone here who's just starting out or fresh out of school."
Since their mission is to be a one-stop destination for head-to-toe spa services, Vada's owners do their best to reserve hairstyling chairs and treatment rooms for walk-in customers. They also pride themselves on their expertise with the male aesthetic, offering a lineup of guy-specific spa services including back facials, shoulder waxing, and spare-tire rotations.
Smile Arts of NY keeps smiles bright and healthy through cosmetic and implant dental work that includes fillings, periodontal therapy, and professional whitening. Nitrous oxide and sedation can keep exams pain-free, while warm-towel service and refreshments help patients' teeth fall asleep easily after the procedure. Smile Arts' Dr. Peter Mann possesses a fellowship from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and has put his myriad dental skills to work helping underserved communities in the Dominican Republic.
While a lone tooth is never particularly attractive, a smile is more than the sum of its parts, as Dr. Ari Dubov and Dr. Lana Bunis well know. The two dentists specialize in cosmetic dentistry at their practice, Montgomery Greene Dental—where they bring smiles together by looking at the entire oral picture. Dr. Dubov is certified in Invisalign, a system of transparent aligners that straighten teeth subtly, without marks such as braces—which were recently adopted as the international symbol for "Under Construction". Dr. Bunis, meanwhile, specializes in implants, seamlessly replacing missing teeth. Beyond cosmetic dentistry, the pair also offer general dentistry services, orthodontics, and periodontics.
While studying at New York University’s College of Dentistry, Dr. Nhat Nguyen found more than a career. He found his future wife—and current partner at East Coast Family Dentistry—Dr. Maria Sese. Together, they tackle a full slate of dental services that range from checkups and x-rays to prevent future mouth-based maladies to implants and crowns that signal which molar is king of the teeth. Once smiles are healthy, the dental duo can spruce them up with cosmetic treatments including Zoom! Whitening treatments, which brighten chompers up to 12 shades in a single session.
Beauty and Youth Salon and Spa throws open its doors seven days a week to administer laser treatments and style and coif both men and women with traditional salon services. Laser wielders contour figures with FDA-approved Zerona treatments, chiseling physiques so they are able to blend in at Greek-sculpture museums. The laser facial targets premature signs of aging on sun-damaged visages, and waxing, massage, and haircuts give aesthetics upgrades.
At AVM Dental Center, Dr. Alexander Milman knows patients don't want their dental work to show. He keeps his handiwork concealed by using tooth-colored materials, which replace metal fillings and other conspicuous dental treatments. It makes sense then, that he'd specialize in Invisalign, which straightens teeth while remaining almost invisible—something it has in common with most superhero dentists. Even his CEREC crowns replicate the look and function of the natural tooth and can be put in during a single visit. But Dr. Milman wants his patients to have an easy visit, too. His office's technologies help make appointments more comfortable with digital X-rays and special cameras that give him a tongue's-eye-view of each tooth for more accurate diagnoses.
