For Dr. Julie Elessawi, it’s good to be a dentist in the 21st century. With more advanced dental technology rolling in every year, patients now have a better-than-ever chance of keeping their own natural teeth for life. When that isn’t possible, dental implants replace missing teeth with crowns sculpted from modern materials to blend seamlessly with neighboring molars and their prized collection of daguerreotypes. Natural chompers that need refurbishing can don porcelain veneers or brighten after applications of hydrogen peroxide.
Dr. Elessawi doesn’t stop at mouth-beauty alone. She and her team, first and foremost, stress the importance of oral health and put this philosophy into action by championing preventative care. The team believes that today’s precision tools make it easier for patients to overcome the dread associated with visiting the dentist. The doctor also steps out of the mouth entirely to target facial wrinkles with Botox injections for new patients, new new patients, and not-so-new new patients.
