How is a periodontist different than a general dentist?

Professional, But Very Personal

Our practice is made up of much more than exceptionally trained and accomplished dental professionals; everyone from our doctors to our office staff is like a family. We have a very close-knit team, with several members who’ve been with the practice for many years. We all endeavor to create close, long-lasting relationships with our valued patients, really getting to know you and your family over the course of your visits. We also work closely with your primary dentist to ensure that you have an excellent continuity of care while experiencing minimal inconvenience or hassles.

Top Technology for Top Quality Care

While people drive our practice, we also have tools which enable us to provide you with the best possible dental care. We were the first practice in the area to acquire i-CAT™ technology, which gives us detailed 3D images of your teeth quicker and with far less radiation exposure than most CT machines. These images help us diagnose your dental issues and develop effective treatment plans. We also use special technology to complete guided dental implant surgery, ensuring a precise fit and predictable results. And that’s just a small sampling of the advanced technology we have to serve you in our Wantagh, NY office.

Our experience and technology give you the results you deserve!
