Comprehensive Dentistry in Center City Philadelphia
Since 1984, our private practice has been devoted to comprehensive reconstructive, cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry in center city Philadelphia. Our team is known for excellent personalized patient service, a commitment to the highest quality of treatment, and state-of-the-art technology.
We were one of the first dental practices in the Philadelphia region to place bonded porcelain restorations and to implement networked digital radiography, cosmetic imaging capabilities, laser whitening procedures, and digital scanning for porcelain restorations.
Virtually Painless Injection
Our dental care team uses a virtually painless injection technique. A topical anesthetic gel is applied to the tissue with a swab. This anesthetic painlessly numbs the spot where the doctor will give you one of the most gentle injections. We don’t start any treatment until you are comfortable and adequately anesthetized for the procedure. Dentistry today can be truly painless.

General Dentistry FAQs
How do I avoid future tooth cavities?
First, cut back on foods and drinks high in sugar and other starches. Next, always brush your teeth twice a day and floss once. Finally, see us every six months for an exam and cleaning.
Decay often takes about six months to form, so a regular checkup can allow us to address areas at risk before a cavity even forms and you experience discomfort. Professional teeth cleaning can remove plaque buildup, protecting your teeth.
Will a filling be enough to repair decay?
In most cases, yes. Sometimes you may have tooth damage that has progressed too much. Inlays, onlays, or a dental crown may be recommended.
If we brush and floss our teeth daily, why do we need general dentistry?
Routine dental care focuses on disease prevention. Our dental care team evaluates all aspects of your smile, from teeth to gums to jaw joints. We also look for early warning signs of other health issues, including oral cancers. We are able to reach and clean areas often hard to reach with your own toothbrush at home. Gum disease is one of the most common dental problems impacting patients of all ages, and it can be primarily prevented with routine dental care.
