At Southington Dentistry, Drs. Neil Salesky and Michael Reisman convince adults and children that dentist visits are an opportunity to unwind. Many of their patients barely feel their services due to advances in oral sedation—a pill that induces a conscious state of relaxation—and drill-less dentistry, which employs air abrasion in place of intimidating tools during some filling procedures. Patients further relax with provided headphones and listen to music or watch television while the dentists, who prioritize gentleness and a cheery bedside manner, tend to their teeth. The dentists' caring nature even extends outside the office. As they address medical and cosmetic concerns, they simultaneously help animals in need—10% of all their hygiene profits go toward animal rescue groups and denture fittings for birds who hope to smile.
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.
The dentists at West Avenue Dental strive not only to improve patients' oral health, but also to teach them to maintain their glowing smiles at home. An initial exam—cleaning, x-rays, and charting—helps dentists diagnose any issues and plan the proper treatment. They provide several preventive and reparative treatments, including extractions, sealants, root canals, and dentures. They also enhance the appearance of teeth with whitening and Invisalign straightening.
After graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and completing a fellowship program at Yale University, Dr. Ross A. Kaplan began to practice in Hamden. That was 1992, and he's been improving the smiles of local smiling people ever since. He carries on a legacy of expert dentistry that his father, Dr. Laurence Kaplan, began as a dentist back in 1962. Although the practice goes way back, they've kept up to date on the latest of dental technologies, including digital x-rays, a massaging dental chair, invisible orthodontics, and light-activated teeth-whitening treatments.
At Kennedy Pediatric and Family Dental, a team of talented dental professionals provide preventative, therapeutic, and cosmetic services for kids and adults. Dr. Ridhima Goyal, an experienced graduate of Boston University School of Dental Medicine, leads the staff, and continues to broaden her skill set by attending continuing-education courses and occasionally replacing her own teeth with piano keys. Her staff works hard to make dental visits as painless as possible during basic cleanings, root canals, veneer implantations, and extractions. They also outfit their paperless office with state-of-the-art equipment such as digital x-rays and a surgical treatment space.
WH Hamptons Dental Group provides family and cosmetic dental services that keep smiles healthy and bright. During a standard visit, the adult or pediatric dentist performs a comprehensive intraoral exam, complete with radiographic evaluations, and polish teeth until they shine. Beyond traditional services, the dental professionals also offer in-office whitening and Hollywood-style smile makeovers.
