The dental facility that is home to Dr. Robert Howard and Dr. Renee Levine can defeat nearly any problem that dares to cross the gumline. Practicing in Mamaroneck, OKU graduate Howard and Tufts graduate Levine head a staff that regards patients as family and tooth decay as a sworn enemy. Howard is a 30-year veteran clinician who has won a reputation as a conscientious cavity crusader who was named Westchester Magazine's Top Dentist four years in a row. Dr. Howard compliments his own wide-ranging treatments—including Invisalign and teeth whitening—by enlisting the talents of Dr. Renee Levine, who practices general dentistry and excels in the area of cosmetic dental transformations. A strong proponent of ongoing edudation, Levine is the founder of Western Massachusetts Young Professional Dental Study Group which promotes interdisciplinary case studies.
For many, trips to the dentist awaken old childhood worries—fears of having cavities, getting fillings, or being admonished for not flossing enough. Dr. Ahmad Sedehi and his staff understand these concerns; that’s why they strive to assuage any such fear during every visit. Their helpful attitudes and open dialogue make the office feel a bit cozier and the treatments feel a bit less daunting. The multilingual staff of English, Armenian, Farsi, and Spanish speakers can also ease minds from around the world. Their gentle chairside manner, combined with Dr. Sedehi’s proficient blend of preventive care, surgical prowess, and cosmetic expertise, helps patients keep teeth in tiptop shape and reduce the number of future visits needed down the road.
The Dental Design Center uses Dash whitening technology's 30% hydrogen-peroxide whitening gel to give enamel elegant effulgence, a dramatic change evident in before and after photos shot in the wild. Results are usually seen within 45 minutes of the procedure. All whitening procedures are performed by Dr. Ira Handschuh, who brings nearly two decades of dental derring-do to The Dental Design Center and its state-of-the-art facilities. The White Plains office is closed on Wednesdays and Sundays, and Dr. Handschuh works out of the New York City office on Fridays, so be sure to call ahead when making your pearly white–whitening plans at The Dental Design Center.
At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
Appointments at Cosmetic, Sedation and Implant Dental are designed to be easy. Dr. Barry Jason offers a variety of sedation techniques for patients to choose from, which makes each dental visit a tranquil experience. Patients leave the office with healthy, restored smiles, but little or no memory of the actual procedure, helping anxiety-prone visitors.
As a graduate of Columbia University's School of Dental Medicine and the former director of dental implantology at Lutheran Medical Center, Dr. Gerald Cohen confidently tends to his patients' long-term oral health while also renovating smiles with the latest cosmetic treatments. Along with the expertise of its staff, the sophisticated practice fights off decay and beautifies precious enamel deposits with help from high-tech gadgets such as a 3-D cone beam scanner, which accurately analyzes mouthscapes with a significant reduction in radiation, and digital impressions that negate the need for messy tooth trays or tooth-fingerprint kits. Routine exams and cleanings guard against cavities and oral cancer, and Dr. Cohen's onsite dental lab speedily constructs personalized implants and veneers to ensure a perfect match for each patient's mouth. As a testament to Greenwich Cosmetic Dentistry's commitment to technology and patient comfort, staff provide each guest with an iPad to occupy them as they wait and offer sedation dentistry for nervous patients to allow them to sleep through their treatment and awaken on the first day of spring.
