At Lucas Dental, chompers are carefully nurtured with up-to-date teeth technology. After an initial consultation, a qualified dental doctor will make impressions of your munchers; during a second visit one week later, clients will receive their custom-fit trays and whitening kits, as well as instructions for putting their tooth-improvement gear to effective use. Groupon holders also receive 20% off all future touch-up whitening gel refills, and those seeking to straighten up disorganized dentition can consult with doctors to test their Invisalign candidacy and get 20% off the regular rate for the service, which typically costs $3,500–$5,000.
Supported by a friendly, bilingual staff, Dr. Diana Rodriguez specializes in all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry—from simple cleanings to dental-implant procedures—and keeps her skills current by attending continuing-education courses. Her care for patient comfort evidences itself inside the exam room, where periwinkle-blue walls and an overhead TV draw clients into relaxing states. During appointments, Dr. Rodriguez pampers mouths with progressive technology, including digital x-rays, and accommodates sleepwalkers' quests for oral hygiene with evening hours.
Throughout his 32-year tenure in Jersey City, Dr. Richard Cohen has followed his tenets of preventive care and education to keep his patients' smiles impeccably pristine. Whether he's performing preventive, restorative, or cosmetic procedures, Dr. Cohen puts his primary focus on dental exams, ensuring that veneers, fillings, and implants have a strong foundation and that cleanings and fluoride treatments fortify only the best behaved, least bitey teeth.
Though he seems quite at home among the advanced tools at his Jersey Smiles dental office, Dr. Shankar Iyer is no stranger to the world outside. The jet-setting dentist has made a name for himself as an international speaker, having lectured on subjects such as implant and prosthetic dentistry across Europe, South America, and Asia. When he isn’t publishing peer-reviewed articles or patiently autographing tooth fairies’ prized collections, Dr. Iyer joins Drs. Preeti Iyer and Devika Bhola—as well as a dedicated staff of dental assistants—at his offices in Elizabeth and Jersey City. Together, the three dentists clean and correct smiles with treatments that encompass the many subsets of their field, from dental implants to prosthodontics and smile design. Their collective expertise has not gone unnoticed by former and current patients, many of whom will testify to the staff’s “professionalism and humane attitude” in devising gentle treatments to correct chipped teeth, brighten stained enamel, and silence the trills of swallowed harmonicas.
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.
