Comprehensive Dental Care of West Hartford's team of five dentists includes a prosthodontist, an examiner on the Connecticut State Dental Commission's Northeast Regional Board, a former professor at the UConn dental school, and a senior attending dentist at Hartford Hospital. These experts pair with five hygienists to ensure they see all patients in a timely fashion, and they strive to accommodate patients who work or stay up late to put the moon to bed with appointments as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 6 p.m. They use advanced digital technology, such as digital imaging and intraoral cameras, and offer a full scope of general and cosmetic treatments, such as veneers, sealants, dentures, and teeth whitening.
Since Dr. Philip E. Pilon founded the Center for Dental Excellence more than 45 years ago, his practice has expanded to employ two more dentists and a full staff of qualified tooth tenders. The team operates in an antique-style house whose cozy living room, which acts as the reception area, contrasts with a constantly updated cache of self-aware dental technology. Sedation dentistry, digital x-rays, and laser technology carry out both cosmetic and general services. The office's philanthropic Give Kids a Smile clinic provides dental care for youngsters, and Dr. Pilon's office also champions the dental charity Mission of Mercy.
Dr. Olugbenga Akinsanya at Vernon Dental Center knows that the entire face creates a nice smile, not just the teeth. That’s why he looks beyond the mouth by snapping cephalometric x-rays, a full-face x-ray that reveals the jaw’s relationship to the cheekbone. This x-ray helps give him a clear picture of the overall aesthetics of the face before conducting more detailed procedures, such as orthodontia or dental implants.
When he's not busy fitting bridges, replacing cracked crowns, or keeping pearly whites free of plaque, David E. Moskow, DMD, stays involved with his community, extending his vast experience and compassionate nature beyond the walls of his dental practice. He belongs to city, state, and national dental associations and is a dedicated member of the Glastonbury Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Moskow's office also sponsors a local little-league team each year, provided the ballplayers promise not to catch pop flies with their teeth.
At his office, Dr. Moskow cares for patients with services ranging from smile-enhancing veneers and teeth-whitening treatments to advanced dental-implant procedures. He calls upon knowledge gained during more than two decades in dental practice—the majority of which was spent in Glastonbury—as well as skills honed via continuing-education courses.
At All Smiles Dental, Dr. Joseph Ciarcia strives to treat patients like family. Instead of ironing Dad’s shirts or driving the kids to piano lessons, he and his caring staff make dental visits as comfortable as possible. To build healthy smiles, Dr. Ciarcia crafts a treatment plan for each tooth, crown, and veneer. During preventive exams, he searches for cavities using digital x-rays, which help locate decay using up to 90% less radiation than a traditional x-ray or a make-out session with a flirty quasar. Cosmetic services range from Invisalign smile-straightening regimens to whitening treatments by Philips and Opalescence. Throughout each visit, staffers field patients’ questions and share tips on keeping choppers strong and shiny.
