Born and raised in New York, Dr. Lana Rozenberg comes from a family of dentists. This combination conspired to inspire a lifelong dedication to managing the oral health of her fellow New Yorkers. After a brief sojourn west for a stint at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, Dr. Rozenberg returned to New York for advanced work at NYU. Her practice’s blend of general dentistry with cutting edge dental techniques earned her the attention of the city’s population and the editors who write about them. In addition to bolstering her patients’ smiles, Dr. Rozenberg also makes time for feature coverage in outlets ranging from Vogue to CNN.
So, what are some of these revolutionary treatments? Gumoflage is one. The corrective procedure mends smiles that show too much gum by repositioning the upper lip so that it doesn’t creep up too high. A scalpel-free smile lift is another, building up teeth and creating a fuller, wider smile through the use of veneers. To enliven faded grins, she also uses the Zoom whitening process, which breaks down stains and discoloration in less than an hour. Dr. Rozenberg also branches out past the mouth, enhancing faces’ overall youthfulness with cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm.
Tribeca Dental Studio unites the talents of six different doctors whose specialties range from cosmetic dentistry to gum health to the tooth's inner workings. The team's varied skills ensure patients’ needs are tended to. No matter what treatment they need—whether a routine checkup or a more intensive surgical or cosmetic procedure—clients are catered to with amenities that were designed with comfort and efficiency in mind. While patients recline in massage chairs, the staff employs technology such as WaterLase dentistry, which reduces the discomfort and sudden gold rushes often caused by standard drills.
While tending to patients’ comfort, the studio—itself made from nontoxic caulks and hypoallergenic paints—looks out for the environment. They have replaced mercury and silver amalgam fillings with nontoxic, composite resin and use digital x-rays to minimize radiation exposure. Also, paperless systems limit waste while keeping records secure, and purifiers clear the air of molds and mildew.
?I knew dentistry was for me when I was just 8 years old,? Dr. Joseph Zagami muses in his bio. He had just gotten a number of fillings, and the young Zagami thought his dentist?s skills were akin to a magician. Since then, he's lived and breathed dentistry, having served a residency at Lutheran Medical Center and lectured at universities and professional functions. Dr. LuAnne M. Curatola took a different approach?the devoted student decided to double-major in biology and art history, so that when it came time to attend the NYU College of Dentistry, she had a background in science and a sharp attention to detail. At their clinic, both dentists check for signs of disease and decay during routine checkups, and perform more specialized services such as extractions and dental implants that look, feel, and taste like real teeth.
Dr. Kate Brayman developed her knack for restoring smiles at her alma mater, New York University College of Dentistry. In addition to her degree, she completed a one-year intensive training course that concentrated on veneers and implants. Today, at her practice, she continues to specialize in cosmetic and general dentistry services, such as Invisalign, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and crowns. Dr. Brayman's Greenwich Village office offers convenient hours at a convenient location, and she strives to make sure each patient is able to voice questions or concerns during each appointment.
After successfully brightening smiles overseas, Magic Smile came stateside to perform teeth-whitening treatments with its patented multistrength formula?available in eight strengths to match varying levels of sensitivity. Technicians prop jaws open with a comfortable mouth opener before painting the formula directly onto teeth, negating the need for messy trays. A special laser LED light then beams down on teeth to activate the stain-removing process. After treatments, teeth appear up to six shades lighter and can retain their new hues for up to two years. Unlike reading sonnets to one's molars, the treatments do not significantly increase dental sensitivity.
Relief, correction, strengthening, and education: this is the four-step approach used by the experts at Manhattan Total Health when treating patients' pain. They focus on both identifying and addressing the underlying causes of aches, relying on holistic, non-surgical procedures to relieve discomfort and sternly send stress to its room. Services include physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and sports medicine, all specially tailored to help clients regain mobility. The team places an equal emphasis on education, believing that the proper knowledge can help their patients lead healthier lives.
