At American Barbershop, stylists work to resurrect the corner barbershops of yore, when striped poles spun out front and everybody knew each other's name. They're off to a good start—their red, white, and blue barber's pole twirls in front of the shop, and the vintage feeling continues inside, with red leather barber's chairs sidled up to antique wooden workstations stained dark with pale trim. They even have a rocking-horse haircut chair for kids or the tiny cowboys who mosey on in for a beard trim. The barbers offer hair services for men, women, and children, and keep their menu simple and no-fuss: haircuts and shampoos, along with beard trims for men and blow-dry styles for women.
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.
Barnum Dental's two dentists, Dr. Dharam Tayal and Dr. Veerjinder SIngh, tend to patients' teeth with general dentistry treatments and cosmetic ones—from cleanings and root canals to veneers. As they work, they incorporate technologies, such as a digital x-ray, that allows the dentist to take highly accurate images of a tooth or teeth with 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray.
Captained by Dr. Ellen Karandisecky, a veteran dentist and graduate of Columbia School of Dental and Oral Surgery, A Winning Smile, LLC ensures the long-term health of teeth and mouths with high-tech equipment and a friendly, capable staff. A host of sophisticated dental apparatus, such as an intraoral camera and Dexis digital x-rays, help passionate staff diagnose oral issues with a focus on increased comfort and safety. Additionally, the tranquil office calms visitors with a warm décor of hardwoods and potted plants, plus a level of cleanliness and purity that well exceeds the high standards set by OSHA, the CDC, and the staff's grandmothers.
As the official team dentist of the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers until the 2012-2013 season, Dr. Walter Kostrzewski has experience in the trenches of restorative dentistry. When he's busy not replacing teeth with hockey pucks, he and his staff improve the health and appeal of teeth with preventative and cosmetic dental services at Comfortable Care Dentistry. The dental pros examine and x-ray mouths for signs of oral cancer or tooth decay and remove plaque and tartar. They also brighten smiles up to eight shades with Zoom! teeth whitening and correct oral problems with root canals and ClearCorrect teeth straightening.
Comfortable Care Dentistry takes the comfort of its guests seriously and uses amenities such as aromatherapy candles and their relaxing scents to live up to its name. TVs planted in the ceilings allow a pleasant diversion, and the staff offers bottled water, coffee, tea, and straight mouthwash for parched patients.
