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.
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. Other services include restoring dental implants, tooth replacement, and treatment of periodontal disease.
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.
At her eponymous practice, Dr. Anna Kupchik transforms smiles with both general and cosmetic dentistry. Although Dr. Kupchik skillfully handles cavities with composite and amalgam fillings, she specializes in preventive care due to its importance to oral health and heads off issues before they even manifest, focusing on patient education and advising them to brush and floss properly instead of chewing on mops. She also transforms smiles with aesthetic services ranging from in-office teeth whitening to dental veneers, which conceal discolorations and broken teeth.
When Dr. Richard Pyun took over Smile for Life Family & Cosmetic Dental in the fall of 2003, he inherited a practice that had served Pearl River for more than three decades with personalized care, professionalism, and a cozy atmosphere. Since then, Dr. Pyun has maintained the office's long-standing traditions while ushering it into the modern age of dentistry, carrying out his procedures with the latest technology and techniques. He and his staff perform everything from routine exams and teeth whitening to ultrasonic teeth cleaning and digital radiographs.
