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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
