Dentists Elizabeth Sandoval and Irma Torres work with their staff of trained tooth techs to shine up clients’ chompers. The 45-minute appointment kicks off as a dental guru pokes, prods, and administers a polygraph test to each tooth to search out signs of hidden disease or decay. Patients then relax as a thorough prophy jet cleaning washes away plaque and tartar buildup, leaving mouth pearls smooth and shiny. Digital x-rays further inspects cuspids for cavities and contraband lollipops.
At Bronx Community Dental Care, Dr. Oleg wields an array of dental technology such as thin porcelain lumineers and safe BriteSmile whitening gel that activates under low-intensity light. The doctor maintains a dual emphasis on treatment and prevention through a menu of general and cosmetic dentistry and surgical procedures.
To detect tooth and gum issues, Dr. Oleg’s team uses an intraoral camera, which facilitates views of mouth recesses that mirrors or open-mouth screams cannot, and digital x-rays, which reveal invisible structures for examination on a computer. They also repel impending decay with pediatric sealants, and skillfully maneuver mouths to extract wisdom teeth, graft bones, or perform surgery on gums. Upon spotting flaws in individual teeth, the team also springs to action with the CEREC machine, which rapidly sculpts or restores compressed porcelain crowns and inlays during one visit.
Dr. Elliot Sabbagh, DDS, wanted to be a dentist as soon as he graduated from high school, so he took the fastest route to get there: New York University’s accelerated dental program. He has put that extensive training to good use for the past 18 years at iSmile Dental Centers, a group practice he started and has expanded to include eight practices across New York City’s five boroughs. He and his fellow dentists provide a comprehensive slate of dental services—exams, crowns, fillings, digital x-rays, wisdom-tooth extraction, veneers, and power whitening—that cover patients’ preventive, surgical, and cosmetic needs.
The simple decor and soft lighting of M&N Dental's waiting room reflect the experience patients will experience while reclining on its examination chairs. The dentist provides both a calming demeanor and a comprehensive range of general dentistry services including teeth cleaning, whitening, and fillings.
Dr. John N. Kallis, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for 25 years, and Dr. Patricia R. Marrone, a highly educated dentist fluent in English, Italian, and Spanish, lead an experienced staff in crafting beautiful, healthy smiles with expert oral-surgery and periodontal procedures. In an initial consultation, dentists greet clients, explain diagnoses, and lay out treatment options, which may include dental implants or intense psychotherapy for sensitive teeth. Prior to appointments, clients relax on soft seats in the waiting room and flip through magazines, watch the flat-screen television, or stare at leafy plants in an attempt to judge their rate of growth. Treatment sessions seat patients in padded, adjustable chairs as dentists make use of high-tech equipment to banish wisdom teeth, craft implants, graft gums, or eradicate joint disorders.
