  • How to Determine the Value of Your Dental Practice

    30 Jul 2015 | 11:23 am
    By Erick Cutler Performing a dental practice valuation is no easy task. Whether you plan on selling your practice in the near future or simply want a fair comparison price against other dental practices for sale in your community, an accurate value assessment is critical when planning next steps or preparing for a dental practice transition. A professional valuation company may charge upwards of several thousand dollars to conduct a fair market review and produce an appropriate valuation report. Before committing to spending the money, it’s important to understand the different valuation…

    It’s difficult to remember a time when the internet wasn’t part of the everyday fabric of our collective lives. The Yellow Pages, let alone the regular white pages phone directory and countless other hard copy publications are a thing of the past.  Social media, Twitter, Facebook, Yelp, and LinkedIn are now as ubiquitous as the personal computers, macs, smartphones, tablets etc. that are used to access such outlets of connectivity and instant information.

    …. Sgt. Pepper taught his band to play.” And since that story has already been told (far more than twenty years ago and told so much more brilliantly than I could ever) I have another tale to tell. It was August 1, 1995, exactly two decades ago to the day, that I embarked on a life-altering professional mid-life course correction that took me from an 11-year partnership in a dental practice in Forest Hills, Queens, to a fresh start in a new (and my current) dental home at 30 East 40th Street. It was what I would describe as a professional do-over (reminiscent of playing sports with your…

      Time really does fly when you’re having fun. At least that has been my experience these past two years. In the seeming blink of an eye, I just completed the two-year implant program at NYU College of Dentistry. That’s right, I “graduated” with my class this past June 10th (which befittingly was also the 33rd anniversary of my graduation from dental school!).     Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?     Two years ago my serendipitous discovery of and enrollment in, the NYU Implant Program has proven to be a life-changing adventure. While many…
  • 4 Things That Can Mess Up Teeth Whitening

    Michael Sinkin
    11 Jun 2015 | 4:27 am
    The effect that a more beautiful smile can have on a person’s self-image is overwhelmingly positive and transformational. I’ve seen it over and over again in my dental practice of over 30 years. And of all the ways to get a more beautiful smile, teeth whitening is the is the most requested. That’s not just in my practice but also in the entire country. In fact, in 2010, Americans spent more than 15 billion dollars whitening their teeth! But, whether you plan to use an over-the counter product available at most pharmacies or you have chosen to have teeth whitening performed in a dental…

    I can’t believe it’s been three years since we lost Willy. In honor of a great companion, I thought I’d post it again: May 28th, 2012: Last week, my golden retriever Willy turned 15½. Yeah I know, who counts half years? But when you’re an old dog (75-108 in human years) every month counts. Besides, aren’t babies’ ages counted in months until they turn two? And the truth of the matter is that someone just happened to ask me how old Willy was and I realized that it was his half birthday (it’s not like I circled May 22nd on the calendar). Not surprisingly, what with…

Many of your patients are using this down-time to either catch up on emails or browse their social media feeds - where Facebook and Instagram seem to be the most popular.Since Facebook provides business services, it should be noted that Facebook has created a free bluetooth "beacon" that businesses can use to drive engagement of nearby Facebook users to their Facebook pages.

    As a dentist who studied at a school on the East Coast, but took the Western Regional Board, I am often asked what's the difference between the NERB and the WREB?Note: The North Eastern Regional Board (NERB) is now called the "Commission on Dental Competency Assessments" or the CDCA, but will be referred to as the NERB for the remainder of this blog post.The main difference between the NERB and the WREB is defined by the states who accept each exam.

There is ample time to complete the exam, and most questions only require common sense to be answered correctly. To study for this exam, it would be wise to set aside an hour or so to complete this free online CE course I found that reviews the California Dental Practice Act.

    img c/o: Ever wonder how to floss your teeth right? Even if you have been flossing year after year after you brush your teeth, most folks are still somewhat astonished to learn that they are doing it the wrong way. Flossing the proper way removes food particles and plaque in areas of the mouth where toothbrushes are not able to reach. This includes between your teeth and under the line of the gums. Due to the fact that the build-up of plaque may lead to gum disease and decaying teeth, flossing daily is the recommendation. Flossing is Important Each time you go to get a checkup at…

Make sure you are aware of every stage of tooth extraction particularly when the teeth being pulled out happen to be your third molars.

  • Orthodontic Braces- What they are and do you need them ?

    12 Aug 2015 | 12:01 am
    Orthodontic Braces have become an unfortunate reality for children and teens (and adults, for that matter too). As a child grows older, the parents, along with the children themselves may begin to notice that they have abnormal position of teeth. This can be ranging from the crowding of teeth, to the excessive spacing of teeth. A child may have a protrtruding jaw, which leads to the increased distance between the teeth of the upper and lower jaw. Aesthetics in such cases are greatly compromised and are usually the things which first come to mind to the parents and guardians, but what they do…
  • Fixed Partial Dentures- Dental Bridges

    2 Aug 2015 | 11:40 pm
    Fixed Partial Dentures also known as dental bridges are dental aids which are fixed into position between present teeth, so as to replace the missing teeth with the artificial teeth. They are a semi-permanet mode of tooth replacement and can last over a decade! Dental Bridges are a wonderful alternative to removable partial dentures, as they have the convenience that you do not need to remove them everyday, and they provide a greater support. Advantages of Fixed Partial Dentures over Removable Dentures  FPDs (fixed partial dentures) have a doubtless benefit, that they are more convenient…

    Removable partial dentures are a type of dentures which are used to replace missing teeth in the mouth, when the majority of teeth are still present, and these remaining teeth act as a source of support. It goes for without saying, that removable partial dentures are removable, i.e they are not permanently fixed into the mouth like dental bridges, and can be easily removed when required. Removable partial dentures can be used to replace anything from single tooth to multiple teeth, but they are usually not the most ideal form of tooth replacement. We will get into this later.

    Losing teeth is not something which anyone wants, it happens due to various circumstances which are not under our control. You may have lost teeth due to some trauma/blow to teeth, it may be congenital, it may even be because you have not taken proper care of your teeth, and with time, each carious tooth had to be extracted as it was beyond repair, and now you are left with a jaw without any teeth. Whatever the case may be, complete dentures are an unfortunate reality, but looking at the bright side, they are also utilities which help in replacing missing teeth in the oral cavity. In this…

Composite fillings are “white fillings” as they are tooth coloured, which makes them much more aesthetically pleasing compared to amalgam fillings. They can be provided in the anterior teeth (teeth at the front of the jaw), as well as the posterior teeth (teeth at the back of the jaw) The process of  giving composite fillings may be a bit more technique sensitive as compared to amalgam fillings, but the…
