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.
Though she was already a partner at a prestigious dental practice in Union, Dr. Ramya Narayanan wanted to give back to her community in some way. So instead of painting smiley faces over all the neighborhood’s stop signs, she decided to start a private dental practice in her hometown of Jersey City. Today at Strong Roots, she oversees a team that includes two general dentists and a periodontist, and together they provide a slew of general and cosmetic services ranging from crowns and root canals to teeth whitening.
As the leader of a modern office, Dr. Narayanan makes sure she and her staff remain up to snuff on the industry’s latest techniques by consistently attending lectures and conventions. In keeping with the practice's mission to better the community, the office is also working toward becoming 100% paperless, and is situated just steps from the Grove St. PATH Station, making it easily accessible to those who take public transportation.
Under the guidance of medical director Dr. Carol Skipper, ReGenesis Healing & Wellness’ multitalented staff steers visitors onto the path of wellness and beauty. The colorfully decorated center’s array of laser treatments harness intense, concentrated light to resolve common cosmetic complaints, such as spider veins, unwanted body hair, or a meteor barreling toward a freshly styled updo. Massage therapists use their well-practiced hands to ease aching muscles and send romantic partners floating away on a cloud of relaxation during soothing couples massages. ReGenesis’s menu of services also includes facials catered to both men and women.
Holistic nutritionist Angelina Helene says she "has learned to live on a higher vibration," but she still cares plenty about bodies living in the everyday, earthly realm. Through her company Wholistic Revolution, she addresses health issues such as hormonal imbalance, fatigue, and energy enhancement as well as cosmetic concerns such as cellulite and varicose veins.
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.
Drs. Paul Lustiger, Caroline Hamilton, and Hamlet Garabedian work together to improve the health and appearance of patients' teeth. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras can provide helpful medical insight into future dental problems, unlike a fortuneteller who just keeps telling you to stay away from hockey pucks. In the office, they also craft Invisalign braces to straighten teeth and customize teeth-whitening trays to brighten smiles.
