Dental Cleaning Reviews
"You wouldn’t believe me if I shared with you my search for the perfect smile. That search has finally come to and end thanks to Dr. Chase.Dr. Chase effortlessly has transformed my smile - initially, through whitening treatments then through Invisalign, and finally through Veneers. Dr. Chase is the best! Professional, attention to detail, and patient. Not to mention their staff! I received follow up calls to check in on how I was feeling which was very nice, and text reminders so I didn’t miss any important appointments. I couldn’t be happier going to SmilesNY for my cleanings and cosmetic work. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Chase for creating a smile that I absolutely love!!I look forward to recommending this office."- C.S. / Yelp / May 25, 2022
"I must risk sounding too cliché or “fluffy” when writing this review but I must I will be perfectly honest. I recently had 2 appointments at Smiles NY. I mean we all like “painless dentistry” but SMILESNY offers that and so much more. The associates are always professional and kind. The office is immaculate. The atmosphere is peaceful with music and warm lighting. It’s more like a spa for your teeth. Janice, the hygienist, is a periodontist disguised as a hygienist. She is incredibly meticulous, skilled & so generous with her time. My crown replacement with Dr. Roth was stress free. He is fast, efficient and his work is always perfect. As a patient over 25 years I’ve had many procedures done with Dr. Roth including 16 veneers & have never had any issues, leaving the office thinking, AMAZING, that was so easy!! It truly is a privilege to be a patient of this practice. Visit 12/5/22. Luv ❤️ my visits to SMILES NY.. After my cleanings with Janice I feel like I have a brand new set of teeth. Professional & kind & the very best dental care. Deepest gratitude for 30+ yrs.😁"- A.R. / Google / Dec 15, 2022
"NEW ENTRY 12/22/22 once again JANICE is the BEST DENTAL HYGIENIST for so many reasons....honestly don't look forward to any dental work even a cleaning, but she makes it such a comfortable personalized and supportive experience...Her skills along with her bedside manner always excel! And you always feel she actually cares about your well being. AS ALWAYS JANICE IS THE BEST!!! DENTAL HYGIENIST for so many reasons......... NEW ENTRY 6/28/21...I had a bit of a little emergency over weekend...and DR. ROTH made himself so available and giving me comfort until I could see him on Monday...during his very packed schedule. Didn't love hearing I have a bit of an infection but I am trusting the protocol he started me on will heal me. And the whole office as usual efficient and supportive. I left a message on vmail over weekend to get an appointment for Monday (that was Saturday call) as well as texting Dr. Roth..and hearing from him quickly....and by 8am Monday I had a return call from the office to see where they could fit me in........Health practitioners that really care as well as are outstanding in their expertise, service and bedside manner are rare......I am very grateful once again...Health is our greatest wealth! -------------------- i have been going to this dental practice for some time. And if you at all believe that consistency over time has anything to do with creating a brand and an experience, you should consider this for any and all of your dental needs. For creating an experience that is warm, informative and honest I think deserves special attention particular in any kind of health arena. "Bedside manner' is exemplary as is every aspect of the office beginning with the front desk. I have experienced several drs. here, and will say they all share a similar kind of personality and approach to what dental care is and should be. Dr. Roth is my primary here and any specialists they refer you to or who attend the practice for special needs all exhibit this same kind of human aspect and above all outstanding knowledge and experience. I will assume all the hygenists are of the same standard but I can only speak for one I regularly go to, Janice. I can't imagine someone being so passionate about that kind of work, c'mon think about it....ha! But she is and her thoroughness is hard to match, and then there is just who she is as a person. Plus, if you can imagine a dentist office actually have an energy of fun, in engaging with the staff...you don't have to imagine anymore....Health is worth the investment and I think if you have to go, what helps you get there is knowing you are in not only caring hands but truly human ones....that are however highly technical when it comes to the most current insights on dental issues. I schlep there, you should to! And because I went again yesterday, and again, there was this CONSISTENT CARING...THOROUGH....KNOWLEDGEABLE AND FUN EXPERIENCE...trust me, I USED TO HATE GOING TO THE DENTIST...but you just know you are in great super informed caring /hands here with even a sense of humor and human.............best "bedside" manner! do what they advise you and you will be healthy and actually SMILE, for real...lol!"- L.K. / Google / Dec 22, 2022

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.
