Administering everything from oral exams to fluoride treatments, dental implants to in-office whitening, the professionals at Downtown Dental Studio bolster the health and appearance of their clients' smiles. Each dentist and dental assistant is trained to identify and eliminate tooth decay, stave off oral-health problems with preventive services, and explain to bottom teeth that they will never rise to a position at the top.
Mount Sinai is one of the world's foremost teaching hospitals, and at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, the renowned staff members of that institution meet with patients seeking aesthetic, ophthalmologic, and ear, nose, and throat services. Whether they're interested in face-smoothing Botox injections from board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Tony Perkins, getting a rhinoplasty for the image-conscious pet they took home from safari, or simply struggling to get through pollen season, patients will find friendly clinicians whose bedside manner is rivaled only by their scientific know-how and Sinai-honed techniques.
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.
Although Madison & 5th takes its inspiration from Manhattan, inside seems a world away from the city. A skincare and cosmetics spa staffed by licensed professionals, it helps New Yorkers rejuvenate and revitalize with everything from makeup artistry to relaxing bodycare services. The aromatherapy summer facial, for instance, doles out a soothing, season-appropriate regimen of nutrients, and the signature hydrating treatment helps dry skin regain its texture and color. Also on the docket are gentleman's facials and body-slimming wraps, which encourage the release of toxins and help clients fit into old dresses or favorite seatbelts.

One of her present-day treatments, the GM collagen-and-hydrolifting facial, replenishes moisture and softness. Massages range from the 10-minute Quick Fix to a 60-minute round of deep-tissue therapy. Some handy extras include makeup application as well as waxing and threading.
