Dental Associate Group has eight doctors on staff, so patients can usually find the specialist they need. Dr. Sheikh M. Ilyas, for example, is a fellow of the International Congress of Implantology, whereas Dr. Hamed Vaziri is an orthodontist, and Dr. Daniela Marinescu is an endodontist. Together, the experienced team performs a wide variety of dental services, ranging from routine treatments like checkups and cleanings to more advanced procedures such as root canals. For cosmetic needs, they also whiten teeth, replace cavities with tooth-colored fillings, and replace damaged pearly whites with implants instead of weirdly shaped pearls.
As an active member of the Lotus network of holistic-health providers and Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, Dr. Jack M. Levine operates from a philosophy that oral health correlates with overall wellbeing. He and his staff at Orange Street Smiles maintain chompers with holistic dental services that leverage preventative care, biocompatible materials, and minimally invasive procedures. Upon arrival, clients assuage anxieties by sipping herbal tea with one hand while the other two relax with a complimentary hand massage. During the examination, patients can listen to music while Dr. Jack delves into facial caves in search of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancers. X-rays create a dental record and reveal root positions and any hidden decay. Lastly, a skilled hygienist sloughs off plaque jackets and unfashionable tartar top hats using toothpaste made from green tea and herbs.

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. For patients who still feel the jitters, the doctor offers oral-conscious sedation and nitrous oxide to take the edge off without going under.
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
In the more than 12 years since Dr. Jacek Ziemski graduated from dental school at SUNY Stony Brook, he has never stopped educating himself about dentistry. In addition to taking on a postgraduate residency, he regularly aids and abets his training by learning about teeth and dental techniques through continuing-education courses. Today, his deep knowledge base allows him to practice the full range of family, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments.
Before founding Trumbull Smiles Family Dental, LLC, Dr. Scott Cohen was honing his dental skills in the Navy, serving as a dental officer in Iraq and conducting humanitarian missions in Al Anbar. Today, he focuses his services stateside, treating patients of all ages with a full spectrum of general and cosmetic dentistry. He replaces missing teeth with durable titanium implants and nudges teeth toward their desired positions with Invisalign clear braces.
