As an active member of the Lotus network of holistic-health providers and Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, Dr. Jack M. Levine operates from a philosophy that oral health correlates with overall wellbeing. He and his staff at Orange Street Smiles maintain chompers with holistic dental services that leverage preventative care, biocompatible materials, and minimally invasive procedures. Upon arrival, clients assuage anxieties by sipping herbal tea with one hand while the other two relax with a complimentary hand massage. During the examination, patients can listen to music while Dr. Jack delves into facial caves in search of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancers. X-rays create a dental record and reveal root positions and any hidden decay. Lastly, a skilled hygienist sloughs off plaque jackets and unfashionable tartar top hats using toothpaste made from green tea and herbs.

Dr. Alan P. Friedler has designed virtually every aspect of his office to keep his patients relaxed and comfortable starting with the coffee and tea in the lobby. The doctor works with modern technology, such as Intraoral cameras and Diagnodent lasers to detect hard-to-spot cavities, and digital x-rays reduce radiation exposure. For patients who still feel the jitters, the doctor offers oral-conscious sedation and nitrous oxide to take the edge off without going under.
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
Dr. Howard Charney of Family & Esthetic Dentistry of Hamden is touted as one of the New Haven Advocate's 2010 Best Dentists, and he and Dr. Kenneth Fratarcangeli provide quality, comprehensive, and gentle dental care in a relaxed and nurturing environment. Emulate seasonal snowdrifts with wintry pale chompers, courtesy of a Zoom! whitening treatment from Dr. Charney, Dr. Fratarcangeli, and their talented team of cosmetic dental professionals. The procedure begins with a comprehensive exam followed by an application of Zoom!'s scientifically formulated whitening gel, which is activated under a specially designed light. The quick, virtually pain-free process takes place in-office, in under an hour, and provides immediate chroma-shifting results, whitening teeth by up to eight shades.
After graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and completing a fellowship program at Yale University, Dr. Ross A. Kaplan began to practice in Hamden. That was 1992, and he's been improving the smiles of local smiling people ever since. He carries on a legacy of expert dentistry that his father, Dr. Laurence Kaplan, began as a dentist back in 1962. Although the practice goes way back, they've kept up to date on the latest of dental technologies, including digital x-rays, a massaging dental chair, invisible orthodontics, and light-activated teeth-whitening treatments.
