ADVANCED DENTAL TECHNIQUES LAURENCE C. BREITERMAN, DMD, MAGD, FICOI GENERAL DENTISTRY AT ADVANCED DENTAL TECHNIQUES, IT’S IMPORTANT THAT PATIENTS RECEIVE THE FINEST care the first time around. “Our philosophy is to provide the best dentistry possible by continually embracing education and the introduction of advanced technologies,” says Laurence C. Breiterman, DMD. “We believe the least expensive dentistry is dentistry that is done so well it has to be done only once and can last a lifetime.” When it comes to engaging their patients, Advanced Dental Techniques takes the cake. One glance at the practice’s comfort menu and patients will feel much less anxious about their next treatment. The comfort menu includes relaxing in a medical-grade massage chair, complimentary paraffin hand treatments and warmed neck pillows. The dental chairs have

The most popular services are also the newest, explains Dr. Breiterman.“These days people are looking to retain their teeth as long as possible,” he says. “LANAP, or laser assisted new attachment procedure, is a new laser-based gum surgery that people can use as an alternative to cutting their gums away when they have gum disease.” Veneers and makeovers are offered for those who aim to have a more youthful appearance and more teeth functionality. Dr. Breiterman stresses the importance of home care. “It is important for patients to follow a home regimen that is customized to their individual hygienic needs,” he says. “The days when everybody does the same thing are long gone. In general, patients should brush for at least two minutes, floss and rinse twice a day. Today, that may be customized to include other home-care products to improve their results.” 4 | NJ TOP DENTISTS

WHAT’S THE MOST REWARDING ASPECT OF YOUR JOB? Most rewarding aspect is seeing how we change a patient’s life with a beautiful smile and helping them achieve better health through dentistry.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT IN DENTISTRY? Giving back by teaching not just dental students, but also other dentists around the country.

EDWARD A. ROMANO, DDS GENERAL DENTISTRY EDUCATION + TRAINING Georgetown University School of Dentistry, 1987.

“OUR PHILOSOPHY AT AESTHETIC SMILES OF NJ IS TO TREAT PATIENTS ACCORDING TO THEIR individual healthcare needs and deliver personal care that will provide them with a lifetime of healthy smiles,” says Dr. Edward Romano. “We do this with honesty and integrity as if we were treating members of our own family.” Dr. Romano and his team work with patients on a personal level while maintaining a professional manner. He believes in building trust through relationships. “We have many patients who have been with us for 20 years or more,” he says. Part of the reason for his patients’ loyalty? Dr. Romano is committed to staying on top of the latest and most up-to-date technology through his own studies. “The way I stay on top of current technology is through continuing education,” he explains.

“I have exceeded the state required hours for continuing education over and over throughout my career. I both teach and have lectured on modern dental techniques, as well as attend conferences on advanced dental technology and materials.” Dr. Romano explains why it’s so important for him and his team to provide the best dental care possible. “A patient’s oral health has a lot to do with general well being,” he says. “It has been shown in study after study that bacteria in the mouth affects your heart and body. The

Cuozzo Orthodontics is one of the few practices to utilize an iTero digital image scanner that eases the steps of making impressions, plus a Vatech PaXi3D Green CBCT that can perform a 3D scan of a single tooth or entire jaw. “By employing this innovative technology, we can more accurately take impressions of your teeth in a comfortable and patient-friendly manner,” says Dr. Cuozzo. “We also use digital models to conveniently store files, track dental records and develop effective treatment plans. Digital models are also better for the environment, more accurate and efficient, and can be used as a powerful visualization aid to enhance communication with my patients.” 8 | NJ TOP DENTISTS

a new set of teeth and a new smile,” he says. “The same holds true for denture wearers. In one appointment, the dentures can be eliminated and the person can walk out of the office with nonremovable teeth.” Because of his perfected skill set, Dr. Goldberg’s peers and patients frequently refer their colleagues, friends and family members to his practice if they’re looking to receive dental implants. Dental implants are not the only procedure that Dr. Goldberg performs, however. Patients can visit him for a variety of different teeth ailments, including misaligned teeth, discoloration

and fillings, to name a few. Dr. Goldberg is also a certified “Pinhole” doctor, which targets and corrects gum recession with no scalpels, sutures or grafts. “It’s great to see people’s smiles grow wider as they are satisfied with their teeth,” Dr. Goldberg says. “They walk around with their heads higher, they don’t hide their mouth with their hands, and they become healthier.”

HAVING WORKED AS A BIOMEDICAL ENGINEER PRIOR TO BECOMING A DENTIST, DAVID CAGGIANO, DMD, MS, is uniquely qualified to evaluate and leverage the latest advances in the field. “The technology behind braces is changing rapidly. The new tools help me engineer customized treatment programs in the most efficient and comfortable way possible,” he says. “The difference between braces today and even just a few years ago is dramatic. Today’s high-tech orthodontists should be using self-litigating braces with body heat– activated wires, goop-free impression computers, 3D x-rays, computerized brace placement, lasers and in-office 3D printers, to name a few of the advancements.” One of the biggest benefits of these advances is faster and more accurate outcomes requiring fewer appointments and greater patient comfort.

“WE TAKE PRIDE IN THE DOUBLE MEANING IN OUR TAGLINE: ‘YOU’LL LOVE THE WAY WE MAKE YOU SMILE.’”

Although most believe that braces are only for children, Dr. Caggiano tells patients that it is never too late to fix their teeth. “No patient is ever too old for orthodontics,” he says. “Thirty percent of my patients are adults. However, we like to see kids as young as eight years old because if I have a chance to intervene, there is minimal need to really take out any adult teeth while having braces anymore.” Dr. Caggiano is passionate about the quality of his services (including Invisalign, of which he is deemed an “elite provider”) as well as the psychological benefits of straight teeth. “We take pride in the double meaning in our tagline: ‘You’ll love the way we make you smile.’” NJ TOP DENTISTS | 13

turn helps reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath. Dr. Carcara states that

proper alignment is crucial because it helps with chewing food, allows for greater clarity when speaking, reduces the risk of dental injuries and prevents abnormal wear on enamel. He advises parents to bring their children in for an appointment while their jaws are still developing so he can monitor the correct time to start orthodontic treatment.

“COMMITTED TO CARING FOR YOUR SMILE.”

Dr. Carcara stays on the cutting edge of orthodontics by “remaining a perpetual student.” He attends continuing-education courses and studies different technologies and techniques that benefit his patients. “I develop customized treatments utilizing technology such as Itero digital impressions and digital imaging to create computer-designed Insignia custom braces and Invisalign clear aligners,” he says. “In doing so, we have seen reduced treatment times, more comfortable treatment and an enhanced treatment experience.”

local and national level. She can be found at Spear Education in Scottsdale, Arizona where she is a Faculty Club Member. She participates in multiple study clubs, where dentists share their knowledge about treating complex cases. Ongoing research shows there are many connections between oral health and overall health. Recently, Dr. Ference began focusing on sleep apnea and its treatment as it relates to dentistry, designing appliances to assist patients in breathing better as they sleep. These appliances can eliminate snoring and lead to a more restful sleep for the patient as well as their partner. One of the most rewarding aspects of dentistry for Dr. Ference is the ability to work in partnership with oral surgeons to be able to place implant-supported full-arch restorations in one day. “This can be life changing for some people. It is a great example of the evolution of what is available in dentistry today,” she says.

“MY GOAL IS TO EDUCATE MY PATIENTS SO THAT THEY KNOW WHAT DENTISTRY HAS TO OFFER THEM.”

DR. DENNIS LAM OF GALLERY OF LITTLE SMILES IN FLORHAM PARK HAS DEVOTED YEARS to studying and enacting ways to make visiting the dentist “fun” for children.

“OUR GOAL IS TO INSTILL A HAPPY, PROACTIVE VIEW OF DENTISTRY WITHOUT FEAR AND ANXIETY.”

“We all remember what it was like to be kids,” he says. “Our goal is to instill in each child a happy, proactive view of dentistry without fear and anxiety. It’s a marathon, not a race!” Dr. Lam has studied at some of the most prestigious institutions, including Columbia University’s College of Dental Medicine, and has held residencies at New York Methodist Hospital and Bronx-Lebanon Hospital. His inviting office atmosphere boasts kid-friendly aspects such as toys and TVs to help children relax. The staff members at Gallery of Little Smiles are caring and welcoming, greeting children and parents warmly to help lessen anxieties. “Most dentists are trained like mechanics. Patients come in, the dentist diagnoses the problem, repairs the problem and sends you on your way,” he says. “Our practice recognizes that each patient comes with a unique set of needs.” Dr. Lam is one of the few dentists in New Jersey trained to treat children and adults who have special needs. He stays current by attending annual regional and international conferences and by completing peer-reviewed continuing-education courses. Gallery of Little Smiles offers an array of services for your children in a safe and happy environment.

“AT GALLERY OF SMILES, WE FOCUS ON ONE PATIENT AT A TIME AND PROVIDE PERSONALIZED care,” says Dr. Jeannette Glass, founder of the Florham Park-based practice. “We schedule lengthy appointments and see only a few patients in a day to ensure all our attention is concentrated on them. That way, we can address their problems and concerns individually.” Making patients comfortable plays a large role in Dr. Glass’ working philosophy. It’s the key to her success, which is why she educates her patients every step of the way. Patients are fully involved in their own treatment processes and feel more at ease during appointments. “I strongly believe in patient education,” explains Dr. Glass. “At the end of the day, it is not what we as dental professionals do, but it is what the patients do for themselves at home every day that ensures good oral health.” At Gallery of Smiles, Dr. Glass crafts tailored treatment plans. She explains the procedures in depth and describes routines that patients should follow in order to maintain good oral health.

“I PERSONALLY SPEND AMPLE TIME EDUCATING MY PATIENTS AND ENCOURAGING GOOD HABITS.”

“Patients need to know their dental condition, what causes it and how they can prevent it,” she says. “In my practice, I personally spend ample time educating my patients and encouraging good habits to maintain health and prevent issues from arising.”

says the most rewarding outcome of changing someone’s smile is giving them a new outlook on life. “A dazzling smile can give you renewed confidence,” she asserts. Pairing top-notch cosmetic dental services with general dentistry, Dr. Stone aims to make all of her patients understand they’re in competent hands. One way she does this is by focusing the individualized needs of each patient. “Dentistry is dynamic and technology is becoming increasingly important,” she says. In

addition to performing dental treatments with the latest technology, Dr. Stone’s cosmetic dental practice has become extremely popular. Snoring is becoming the biggest problem in many households related to sleep. With more than 70 percent of bedpartners sleeping separately because of snoring, it’s become a major concern. Dr. Stone can provide a diagnosis and solution that protects your health and improves your quality of life. Bruxism, when your teeth wear away from grinding, can also be prevented by wearing a custom-fitted dental appliance at night or by using a night guard to relieve facial muscles. “The amazing thing about cosmetic dentistry is it’s a tool to change what you as a patient don’t like. Every patient is a unique case and requires their own specific plan,” says Dr. Stone. “We have a warm and welcoming atmosphere, a great staff and a painless dental experience!”

“The way education is moving, more and more of our treatments have become digitally focused and digitally delivered,” he says. “We have committed to embrace this change and are excited about the many opportunities and the many directions our profession is going next.” Among his many services, smile makeovers are one of the most popular treatments. Dr. Gruber performs a comprehensive assessment of a patient’s smile before constructing the dental veneers, crowns, onlays or implants to acheive the patient’s desired look. He has fixed many teeth maladies with his makeovers including gaps, chips, cracks, exposed roots, gummy smiles and crooked teeth. “For our practice, the most rewarding outcome of changing someone’s smile is to see the change in their self-confidence, their self-esteem, their oral health and even their overall health,” says Dr. Gruber.

of New Jersey,” says Dr. Witt. By participating in these extra courses, doctors at Ridge Family Dentistry are able to provide patients with the latest technology and top-of-the-line services. High quality services are not the only assets of the practice. Patients refer to Ridge Family Dentistry’s office as more of a spa than a dental office. This is because Drs. Witt and Kurdian designed the office with their patients in mind. The natural stone, wood, large windows and high ceilings create an environment that makes patients feel connected with the beauty of the Somerset Hills. In addition, pediatric patients really enjoy the fish and finches in our reception area as well as the new kiddy corner outfitted with fun games. “We believe that being involved in the community, where we live and work, provides a more personal and compassionate level of care,” says Dr. Kurdian.

POWER OF A SMILE ACHIEVE A BEAUTIFUL SMILE AND WATCH YOUR CONFIDENCE SOAR WITH VENEERS. BY KAITLIN CLARK YOUR SMILE IS ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS people notice when meeting you. There are many cultural cues hidden in everyone’s smile: notions of class, wealth and well-being. An unflattering smile may subconsciously convey unintended — and harsh — messages to the world, negatively impacting one’s self-confidence.

In 2012, she was inducted into the Culinary Hall of Fame and won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lifestyle Host. Her Italian cooking is beloved by millions, and she plans to open her second Las Vegas kitchen in early 2018.

WINTER MINESTRONE Serves: 4-6 INGREDIENTS 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 onion chopped, 2 carrots peeled and chopped, 2 celery ribs chopped, 3 ounces thinly sliced pancetta coarsely chopped, 2 garlic cloves minced, 1 lb Swiss chard stems trimmed and leaves coarsely chopped, 1 russet potato peeled and cubed, 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, 1 fresh rosemary sprig, 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans drained and rinsed, 2 (14 ounce) cans low sodium beef broth, 1 ounce Parmesan cheese rind, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley, salt and pepper PROCEDURE 1. Heat the oil in a heavy large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, pancetta and garlic. Sauté until the onion is translucent, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, blend 3/4 cup of the beans with 1/4 cup of the broth in a processor until almost smooth. Add the pureed bean mixture, remaining broth and Parmesan cheese rind to the vegetable mixture. Simmer until the potato pieces are tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Stir in the whole beans and parsley. Simmer until the beans are heated through and the soup is thick, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Discard Parmesan rind and rosemary sprig (the leaves will have fallen off of the stem). 3. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve.
