During a standard checkup, Northford Family Dental's experienced physicians, including an on-site periodontist, and hygienists capture digital x-rays and check for decay and gum disease. Next, they screen for oral cancer, brush away plaque, and polish mouthbones with a car buffer. Anxiety-prone patients can zone out while watching wall-mounted TVs or even request oral sedation in the form of gentle pharmaceuticals. The dentist tops off the appointment by fitting face caverns for custom whitening trays. Northford Family Dental will ply patients with a lifetime supply of professional-grade whitening solution provided patients visit every six months for routine cleanings, submit to any required dental operations such as fillings or periodontal work, and never talk about Fight Club.
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.

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.
