Franklin Dental Center's Dr. Durdana Gill has been a dentist for two decades, but don't let her title fool you?she does much more than keep her patients' teeth healthy. She and her team beautify smiles with whitening treatments, and cover chipped teeth with porcelain veneers. Dr. Gill also takes bedside manner seriously, striving to set all her patients at ease in her office.
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 Glow Dental Spa, the experienced staff coaxes more confident smiles with a host of cosmetic treatments. They bestow clients with Pola's teeth-whitening systems to reverse discoloration and mask chips with durable, natural-looking porcelain veneers. With Invisalign trays, they help nudge teeth into straighter formation without the use of metal wires or cumbersome “One Way” signs.
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 Abenaim knows that visiting the dentist's office can be stressful. That's why he outfits his Jonathan Dental Spa waiting room with soothing touches such as aromatherapy, health-conscious soft drinks, and leather massage chairs. He and his team even let patients select a DVD to watch on virtual reality glasses during their procedures.
Dr. Abenaim was the recipient of the E. Howell Smith Award in Prosthetic Dentistry upon graduating from the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine. He is also a diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a professor at the NYU dental implant clinic. His services range from fillings and fitting mouths with porcelain veneers to Zoom! teeth whitening, 45-minute pain-free sessions that brighten smiles by an average of eight shades.
