It's not uncommon for adults to dread going to the dentist, and it's often because of a difficult experience they had as a child. Dr. Scott Peters focuses his practice on keeping kids and patients with special needs comfortable to make sure they are encouraged to maintain good dental hygiene. He draws from experience in pediatric dentistry and behavioral management, skills he learned at the Boston University School of Dental Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center. He and his staff aim to make the dental office a welcoming, safe place for all patients.
Dr. Peters can straighten teeth with Invisalign's transparent aligners, a more attractive alternative to traditional metal braces and industrial magnets. He can also fill in cavities; after that procedure, he lessens numbness in the lips and cheeks with OraVerse, which allows patients to talk and eat freely within 15 minutes, and offers laser dentistry. If desired, Dr. Peters can also save a child's stem cell-rich baby teeth for parents. If stored properly, these have tiny, life-giving cells that can help physicians treat ailments that may arise later in life, such as leukemia, diabetes, or multiple sclerosis.
Dr. Samuel Horowitz spent years performing every type of dental procedure before he made implantology his specialty. His focus so engrossed him that, before long, he had thousands of implant procedures under his belt and was appointed diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. However, just as a supervillain never loses his commitment to turning the world into a five-trillion ton diamond, Dr. Horowitz never lost his commitment to standard dentistry. Along with implants, his practice employs their high-tech dental equipment to perform fillings, root canals, and extractions, as well as treat migraines, sleep apnea, and TMJ.
Dr. Jonathan Mangot, DMD believes dentistry should be comfortable, a philosophy for which his boutique-style office is perfectly designed. During each of his general and cosmetic services, such as veneers, cleanings, and whitening treatments, aromatherapy candles issue soothing fragrances while patients relax into the cushioned hug of a body-contouring pillow. Meanwhile, the staff turns on the patient's choice of music, which fills the background with ambiance.
Doctors Steven Glickman and David Christensen have a partnership that makes people smile. Together, they helm a staff of dental and administrative professionals who help them provide comfort and expert care during general and cosmetic dental procedures. The dental staff performs exams and x-rays to spot any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or growth abnormalities. They can also remove plaque during cleanings and remove teeth and impacted hockey pucks during extractions. They enhance the aesthetic appeal of smiles with cosmetic dentistry services that include teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, and veneers.
It's been 25 years since Dr. John E. Aversa began practicing dentistry in Waldwick, New Jersey, and in that time the dentist has developed quite the skill set. Not only do he and his staff spot cavities and diagnose other problems using digital x-rays and Diagnodent equipment, but they also provide a long list of cosmetic and restorative procedures. Patients might come in to get dental implants or porcelain caps, or they might want to improve their smiles with Lumineers, a less drastic alternative to veneers that Dr. Aversa is certified to administer.
At Dental Design of Rockland, Dr. Barbara Ollech channels 25 years of experience when providing comprehensive dental services, ranging from the cosmetic to the treatment of gum disease and root canals. Dr. Ollech and her staff beautify smiles with dental crowns and porcelain veneers, and straighten teeth with Invisalign braces.
