Q&A with the Office Manager
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Elmhurst Dental Suite's signature service is the dental implant procedure performed by Dr. Kayhan Civelek. Implants can be placed as single or multiple units depending on the number of missing teeth. In order to have a successful dental implant, sinus augmentation or ridge modification may be necessary. A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. These pre-implant procedures have been shown to greatly improve appearance and increase chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.

Steinway Family Dental Center offers a balance of traditional and future-forward dental treatments. While the ambient whir of metal dental drills is sometimes heard, the dental professionals also rely on lasers to conduct general and cosmetic services. They can prod soft tissue with traditional tools in search of cavities, or they can expose their hideaways with laser light. A stronger version of
laser light can replace metal drills and anesthesia in order to fill them. They can also leave their metal blades in the drawer during gum contouring too, reshaping gum lines with less bleeding and trauma.
The center furthers this passion for cutting-edge care in a range of cosmetic services. Smile-beautifying technologies such as the metal-free braces known as Invisalign and Lumineers' ultra-thin veneers cast off much of the pain and unwieldy equipment necessary of older procedures, creating a straight, gleaming grin more conveniently than ever before. For more deep-seated issues, the dental pros are adept at mending gum problems, oral diseases, and other maladies with in-depth training in numerous specialty procedures.
One thousand dental implants. No, he didn't work on the world's largest mouth, but Dr. Frantz Backer has worked on a lot of regular-size ones since 1999, instilling his patients with confidence and a sense of ease during all treatments. He keeps those mouths healthy with dental services that treat everyone from children to adults. His extra-gentle root canals, Invisalign plastic braces, and cosmetic treatments such as whitening and bonding, underscore Dr. Backer's expertise and experience. Along with his own continued education, he keeps up with modern dental technology, performing gum surgery with the drill-less WaterLase laser, which is not a super soaker that shoots red light beams. Dr. Backer's passion for helping people doesn't stop with his ordinary clients; he also treats low-income residents and 9/11 rescue workers. He also doesn't underestimate the value of a warm atmosphere—Advanced Dentistry of New York's office treatment rooms feature blue walls, and the waiting area even has an exposed brick fireplace.
At Astoria Family Orthodontics, Doctor Robert J. Lopatkin examines clients’ mouths and corrects alignment issues with conventional braces, Invisalign treatments, and orthodontic surgeries. Boasting extensive experience in the field of dentistry and orthodontics, including attaining his DDS from SUNY and being named a member of the American Dental Association, Dr. Lopatkin has acted as a Diplomate on the American Board of Orthodontics since 1988, the year when the first retainer was sent into space. Within his practice, the doctor treats both adults and children with comprehensive services including examinations, x-rays, and active orthodontic therapies, including the application and regular adjustment of corrective apparatuses.
To Dr. Brad Hantverk, one of the most important things a dental practice can offer its patients is single-visit dentistry. So Dr. Hantverk uses the E4D Dentist system to quickly take a laser scan of the mouth and make an impression of the smile. Unlike traditional impression-taking techniques, this one doesn't require patients to hold uncomfortable or messy materials in their mouth.
Once the impression has been taken, patients watch while the E4D Dentist system designs a custom veneer, crown, or filling tailored to their mouth. The approved design is then transferred to the in-office milling unit for fabrication. The final product is installed in the patient's mouth shortly after that.
