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.
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.
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.
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.
At Jersey City Dental Spa, every trip to the dentist is a relaxing affair. To help put visitors at ease, Drs. Daniel Suh and Yohan Kim play soothing music in every room while patients recline in German-engineered dental chairs designed to provide comfort and support. Additionally, the staff keeps appointments brisk and efficient by using cutting-edge diagnostic technology such as digital x-rays and a 3D scanner. The office also doubles as a full-service spa, where massage therapists ease sore muscles and aestheticians carry out everything from revitalizing facials to eyelash extensions and leg waxing to remove unwanted eyelashes.
