Back when Dr. Jason Chao worked at Brooklyn's Lutheran Medical Center, he received the Resident of the Year award. Today, he brings that commitment to excellence to his family dentistry practice. Coffee and snacks occupy teeth waiting in the reception area, which resembles a cozy living room complete with candles and a rustic stone mantle. On their way to a treatment room, patients traverse a hallway marked by columns and a spacious, open design. Once they climb into the chair, guests bask in the glow of a personal television as Dr. Chao treats their chompers. Chairside TV screens aren't the only entertainment: Xboxes keep thumbs busy, while an Internet station helps gums ingest their doctor-recommended dose of cat videos. Such features echo the practice's dental technology, which includes intraoral cameras and digital x-rays.
Dr. Anthony Cardone brightens smiles alongside an experienced staff, maintaining and restoring teeth with a full range of general, family, and cosmetic dentistry services. The team of dental techs tailors each treatment to clients’ needs, making chompers sparkle with in-office whitening treatments, ensuring oral health with regular checkups, and repairing mouthscapes with porcelain veneers after clients mistake tinfoil for bubblegum. As the staff works, they educate patients on all treatment options and procedures––a practice that engenders both effective care and a reduction in patient anxiety. It is this philosophy of individualized treatment that motivates each staff member to stay current on the latest dental trends, allowing patients to strut worry-free into each procedure and rock-candy tasting.
Drs. Elias and Finkelstein take pride in their work, keeping smiles gleaming with general, family, preventive, and cosmetic dental care for patients of all ages. Backed by more than 40 years of combined experience, their dental team treats patients like family, easing concerns and answering questions about procedures. They also understand the value of technological advancements, and keep their office filled with the most current tools including digital radiography and imaging, Cerec porcelain crowns, Lumineer veneers, and an in-office whitening system.
Goldman Family Dental's office has been helping patients for more than 30 years with everything from esthetic dentistry to one-visit Cerec porcelain restorations. In addition, dentist Dr. Bruce Goldman recently welcomed Dr. Zack Goldman, Dr. Bruce's son, in 2011. What Dr. Zack describes as a "family-like atmosphere," is characterized not by the duo's kinship but by their relationship with patients, whose thank-you notes and gifts are cherished by the entire staff. To exist as a truly "warm and patient-centered environment," the dentists nurture friendships with patients, provide their cell-phone numbers for 24/7 emergency assistance, and emphasize esthetic dentistry and comfort.
