Frequently Asked Questions in NYC
How often should I come in for a checkup?
We recommend that patients visit our New York office every six months for a routine cleaning and dental exam. Visiting our office on a routine basis will help us catch common problems early, before they have a chance to evolve into something more serious.
Which cosmetic dental service is right for me?
If you’re considering a cosmetic service for your smile, we’ll be happy to assess your needs and make a personalized recommendation. Our cosmetic services include in-office and take-home teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, and porcelain veneers.
Should I be screened for oral cancer?
The statistics for oral cancer are grim. Roughly one person dies from it every hour of the day. What’s more, many of those who are diagnosed don’t receive their diagnosis until it’s already too advanced to successfully treat. And while certain behaviors, like smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, will increase your risk of developing oral cancer, at least a quarter of diagnoses are made in patients with none of the typical risk factors.
With all of this in mind, we think every patient would benefit from a regular oral cancer screening.
Do you offer Invisalign?
Yes, we do! If you’ve never heard of it before, Invisalign is a revolutionary braces system that uses clear, removable trays instead of brackets and wires to move teeth into their ideal position. Invisalign is popular with patients who want to create a straighter smile but don’t want to wear traditional braces.
Are dental implants right for me?
Anyone who needs to replace one or more teeth may be an excellent candidate for dental implants. To find out for sure, though, you need to schedule a consultation appointment with us. Give us a call to speak with one of our helpful team members about an exam.
Is your office equipped with dental lasers?

The introduction of lasers to dentistry has not only made certain therapies more comfortable, it has also made the more efficient.
