Dental 2000


s one of the dentists at Dental 2000 in Totowa, NJ, Dr. Lawrence Kaplan knew that patients were scared of going to the dentist. Because of this, he made it his mission to deliver pain-free dental services. With over 40 years of experience in the field, Dr. Kaplan provides care, comfort and much more to all of his patients. His office has a spa-like atmosphere and offers delicious treats and paraffin treatments so patients can feel relaxed whenever they have an appointment. He explains, “My purpose was to have a healthy mouth and healthy body based on four principles: to get teeth functioning so that you can enjoy food, to make sure your teeth are comfortable, not sensitive to temperature or joint pain, to enhance your self-esteem through cosmetic dentistry, and to give your teeth longevity so they last a lifetime.” Please highlight any unique services that your practice offers its patients. Some of the unique services we offer in our spa-like dental environment are fresh fruit, international coffee, herbal tea, heated neck pillows, paraffin treatments, conscious sedation dentistry and accommodating business hours including evenings and weekends. We specialize in a pain-free experience, having all our specialists under one roof. There is no aspect of dentistry that we cannot provide, making the experience comfortable, efficient and convenient. What is the most common misconception among your patients regarding dental care? The most common misconception I have found after practicing for over 40 years is that dentistry has to hurt. I am committed to disproving this notion. Dentistry does not have to hurt. The fear of going to the dentist can actually ruin people’s lives, and it doesn’t have to be that way anymore.

What are the most important qualities that a patient should look for when choosing a dentist? The most important qualities that patients should look for when choosing a dentist is one who truly cares for patients, has integrity, is trustworthy and doesn’t judge them. Are you using any new technology in your office? Fearful patients no longer have to suffer from dental anxiety. If patients have been putting off years of dental work, conscious sedation provides a safe and comfortable way to eliminate pain and anxiety and literally changes a patient’s life. We also offer Snap Dental Cosmetic Imaging, Invisalign, Picasso Soft Tissue Laser, Kavo Diagno and Whisper Jet Abrasion, a minimally invasive technique used to remove tooth decay safely and quickly.
