Licensed dentist Dr. John M. Burns uses his vast knowledge of the field and state-of-the-art technology to keep his clients’ mouths healthy and smiling. He deftly helms x-ray machines, intraoral cameras, and electric endodontic hand pieces to perform services such as root canals, extractions, and implant installation. Dr. Burns also specializes in general services such as veneers, crowns, orthodontia, and Invisalign.
The equipment that Dr. Richard S. Rossman uses in his office represents the most contemporary technology and techniques. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras snoop for issues where eyes can’t. A diode soft-tissue laser cuts tissues gently and with more precision than a prehistoric hand ax. Heated towels clean mouths after treatment. The modern tools augment Dr. Rossman’s more than 30 years of dental education and practice.
For the dentists at Community Family Dental, prevention is paramount. Comprehensive exams and x-rays help them customize treatment plans to head off any mouth-centered maladies. When corrective treatments are needed, the staff stands at the ready to perform implant surgery or root canals or to cosmetically enhance teeth with Invisalign and whitening treatments.
Though they work from a single office, Dr. Mauro Stuparich and Dr. Alexandra Nouel are both doctors and architects. This dual specialization stems from their training in prosthodontics—the art of rebuilding teeth with crowns, bridges, implants, and other apparatuses. After completing prosthodontics programs at Tufts University, then attending advanced courses on surgical implants at the Misch Institute, the two dentists took their expertise to Boston's historic Electric Carriage House. There, they administer a wide range of restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry services to clients of all ages.
Assistance from a congenial staff and advanced technology helps the dentists ensure quality, custom results. For example, Dr. Nouel deftly crafts natural-looking crowns using CEREC systems, which can create the coverings in a single day. Whether their clients want to improve their teeth with porcelain veneers or a regulation cleaning, the dentists can rely on several amenities to ensure patients’ comfort during appointments. The staff members encourage clients to bring their own music, and they can administer sedation to quell lingering anxieties. Clients also have the option of donning protective eyewear. The dark glasses guard against particles and the glare of the overhead light while convincing the dentist that every patient is the Terminator.
The dentists at Seaport Dental Associates keep patients relaxed and comfortable, using the latest technology and cultivating a calming office environment replete with an elegant rock garden and bamboo plants. Patients can watch television during their visit, which might include a treatment with the innovative Waterlase device—a noise- and vibration-free hydrokinetic system that removes hard and soft tissue with laser-powered water droplets, making cavity-removal and gum procedures virtually painless.
The orthodontics-focused practice also specializes in Invisalign treatments, providing an average of 560 patients each year with the clear, smile-straightening aligners. They also perform quick and convenient teeth-whitening sessions to brighten the smiles of bridal parties or teams of competitive blueberry-pie eaters.
When not cleaning, straightening, and whitening teeth, Boston Dental‘s team of dentists continues to advance its knowledge of the dental arts. Dr. Travis Mize teaches at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and Dr. Alice Cheng volunteers at a clinic for young adults in need of free emergency dental care. The multicultural staff members are fluent in several languages, enabling better communication with patients while discussing treatment options and impressing tongues enough that they stay out of the way. The clinic aims to take away one more stressor from dental visits by offering validated parking at the Lafayette Place Garage around the corner.
