Getting to Know Us
I’ve been in practice for over 30 years in Merrick, N.Y. Graduating from NYU and attending continuing education seminars to further my education has led me to being nominated and elected as the President of the Academy of Laser Dentistry in 2012. Our office has evolved into a state of the art dental practice, as well as one of the first dental offices on long island to use laser technology. Painless dentistry, with a family atmosphere, helps make the feared dental appointment not so scary. We are a team who puts caring into dental care.
So what else separates us from the rest? In addition to offering a family atmosphere, we strive to provide the most thorough exams. We include oral cancer screenings clinically, and with an instrument called the Velscope, which is the latest technology, to detect any abnormalities in the mouth. We also measure the amount of acid producing bacteria in the saliva, as well as measure the space between the gums and the teeth to check for areas of periodontal disease at every check up. Once we gather all findings, we will sit down together and decide what dental treatment is best for you.
I’m looking forward to sharing all of the latest techniques, and all the most recent information about oral health with you. Come join me weekly. Sincerely, Dr Ana.
