"Addition to my previous review 2 years ago: My Personal Investment of Veneers. Dr. Steven Roth and the entire team at Smiles NY are the ultimate experience for dental care! I have been a patient of Dr. Roth’s for 25+ years and trust him with any professional advice. That said, he gently and clearly explained to me why I should consider veneers for my teeth. I have dealt with TMJ for years and of course as we age our bite and teeth shift . After completing one implant for a cracked tooth and discovered I had other teeth with hairline fractures , I decided to make the personal investment of saving them from more damage and add a total of 15 veneers to my top and bottom teeth. It is the BEST decision I made as I had 100% trust that I was in expert hands and my new veneers are absolutely gorgeous !! He and Darlene, his Dental Assistant explained to me every step of the process with the highest level of expertise, professionalism , kindness and empathy. They are never rushed and they use the latest technology. I love that they both have a fabulous sense of humor which is so important having that level of dental work! I have no doubt that the day I move from NYC, I will always come back to Dr. Roth and Smiles NY for all my dental care. I have to add that the entire team at Smiles NY are the most incredible support system . I am very grateful to say, that I feel completely at ease and relaxed every time I walk into their office and that alone in a medical practice in NYC is a luxury! Thank you so much to you all for your A++ care and kindness ALWAYS! ❤️ REVIEW WRITTEN IN 2021 Dr. Steven Roth has been my dentist for over 20 years. I can not give enough wonderful, amazing compliments to him as well as his outstanding team in the office. I always call him the "Picasso" of teeth as he is a perfectionist with making sure you have 100% excellent care, including follow-up phone calls, consultations and office visits. His office team and Dr. Timothy Chase consistently share his same work ethic. Each visit is so professional with everyone making you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible, soothing music, immaculately clean office and most important for me is that everyone has a smile and a fabulous sense of humor! Even completing my visit with Lorita at the end of my appointment is always so organized. She is always so professional, friendly and consistently sweet and understanding when discussing the finances. I need to add that I can not imagine any other hygienist cleaning my teeth other than Janice who is the best!! No one likes having to visit the dentist, however, our teeth are so important to our overall health and for me, come rain or literally, in a crazy snow storm .... Smiles NY is the BEST in NYC!!!! PS. The F and Q train has an exit 1/2 a block from their office! :)"- S.B. / Google / Aug 28, 2023
"I'm a new patient, and I cannot say enough good things about Smiles NY. My hygienist performed a thorough cleaning, but at the same time - was gentle and caused no pain at all. Dr. Roth is an amazing dentist who was recommended by a friend. He has created an overall plan for my future dental health in order to correct some previous problems related to wear and tear (and in one instance - bad dentistry by a former dentist). The entire staff there is friendly and helpful! I highly HIGHLY recommend!"- S.W. / Google / Oct 13, 2023
"Very professional, warm and welcoming. Amazing treatment and feeling so much better! Maria is an amazing!!!"- D.B. / Google / Nov 02, 2018
The American Dental Association (ADA) advises people to schedule professional dental cleanings twice each year. Infants should get their first dental exam before their first birthday and after that, your dentist will help you determine when your child is ready for their first dental appointment. A professional dental cleaning can prevent cavities since plaque buildup, the biggest reason for tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also address tartar and stains on the enamel. If you would like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a professional cleaning for your whole family at SmilesNY.
What To Expect
Your dental cleaning will start by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth, which can be hard to treat on your own no matter how often you brush and floss. Advanced tools are used to scale without harming the tooth. To start, an ultrasonic device loosens bigger chunks of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, a fine handheld instrument like a curette or scaler will be used to remove the remaining pieces. Each tooth needs to be scaled to get all the buildup. Once the teeth are clean, the enamel will be polished to remove stains. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment may be done after the cleaning.
Your SmilesNY dentist may suggest cleanings more frequently if you are dealing with concerns such as gum disease. During your treatment, your dentist can help you come up with a home routine for good oral health by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will address your needs. These can be very beneficial for your teeth, overall health, and wallet, so make sure you schedule and go to your dental cleanings at SmilesNY.
A professional cleaning is considered a preventive procedure, so it is usually covered by dental insurance. Our office will contact your dental insurance to determine your specific coverage and then bill for any out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have dental insurance, please talk to a member of our financial team about different payments we accept, including medical financing.
