While Dr. Peter Kampf performs anything from a general checkup to surgical bone grafting, his patients can get cozy with head-rest pillows and blankets while watching movies on video iPods or flat-screen TVs.

ModernSmile's founder and head DDS Dr. Barbara Wachs has whitened the teeth of more than 10,000 clients over the course of her career, which has included appearances on QVC selling aftercare products. During in-office whitening treatments, clients kick back in plush chairs while Dr. Wachs protects lips and gums with a barrier material, then coats teeth with a patented whitening formula. When positioned beneath a UV-free laser light, the gel begins to activate, brightening teeth and kicking out coffee stains so they can do what they do best?make seventh-grade Constitution projects look legit. As a preferred Invisalign provider, Dr. Wachs is also able to nudge teeth into more aesthetic positions with the use of clear, custom trays. Both of these treatments take place in the confines of a modern dentist?s office complete with low-lit lamps, overstuffed couches, and spa-like accents.

Dr. Richard Zalkin arrives at each appointment focused on educating patients as well as providing preventive care. A graduate of Tufts University, Dr. Zalkin has tended teeth for more than three decades, performing diagnostic exams, disease screenings, and tightening or loosening of teeth to ensure that they stay in tune.

This celebrated practice has kept patients free of periodontal troubles for more than 25 years. Its dental team includes Dr. Margolis, who graduated dental school with honors and served as deputy chief forensic dental consultant to NYC's chief medical examiner; Dr. Abbatiello, who graduated first in his Harvard and Columbia classes, and Dr. Toscano, who received Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medals for the life-saving medical work he did with them.
All three blend their educational and diverse career experiences to address dental disease, with the philosophy that dental and periodontal well being influences the body from head to brake lights. Though this perspective imbues their practice with a sense of immediacy and a high level of care, they are conservative with the treatments they recommend and suggest alternatives when possible. Laser dentistry, implants, cancer screenings, and tissue grafting are but a few of the techniques they employ to keep mouths smiling.
At Vanguard Dental, dentists Jackie Shayani and Camilo Achury each harness more than 22 years of experience to protect and enhance area grins. Dedicated to patient comfort, the staff takes mouths by the hand, and walks them step-by-step through treatments, whether they seek the smile-aligning services of Invisalign or the shine-boosting power of a routine cleaning or Zoom teeth whitening. The friendly office also helps perfect each burrito-trap with implants, veneers, and crowns, as well as tooth-colored fillings that hide evidence of cavities without attracting unwanted attention from metal detectors or lonely Geiger-counter enthusiasts.
As founder and managing director, Dr. Shayani practices dentistry part time in order to pursue philanthropy projects that include working with community and charity organizations by day and fighting the crime-laden cotton-candy industry by night. The office's clinical director, Camilo Achury, uses his continuing education to ensure the most advanced care for his patients, and remains an active force inside the dental community by serving on the Queens County Dental Society's board of directors.
Advanced dental technology is the heart of Arch Dental Associates. At each of its locations, the team uses a variety of dental tools such as safe and accurate lasers. The Associates have nixed the traditional metal fillings for white, mercury-free composites, which repair cavities while blending in with the surrounding tooth. The staff employ a mix of services including general dentistry, prosthodontics, oral surgery, implant-, cosmetic-, sedation-, and holistic-dentistry, snoring and sleep apnea treatment, and facial aesthetic procedures. The team's embrace of technology shows its commitment to keeping patients comfortable, which is also achieved with oral-conscious sedation, a more effective method than the hygienist singing lullabies about a toothbrush and floss pick that are friends.
