Perhaps you have a beautiful smile and want to prevent tooth decay. Many Staten Island people have a mouth full of fillings and don’t want to add another one to their collection.

At Staten Island Dental Care, specializing in cosmetic and sedation dentistry, we have a prevention-oriented philosophy of dental care.

Your first step toward dental health begins with a prevention consultation with Dentist Dr. Frederick Hecht.

Dental patients of all ages need to start with an exam to determine their current status. Your dental condition is influenced by your dietary habits, previous dental work, physical health, medications, lifestyle and family history. After a comprehensive analysis, Dr. Frederick Hecht can establish a decay prevention plan just for you.

A prevention plan is a multi-faceted approach designed to maintain optimum dental health. It involves affordable preventative services at Staten Island Dental Care. Twice-yearly exams reveal early problems before they progress. Deep cleanings prevent a multitude of serious dental issues for our patients who faithfully keep their regular cleaning appointments.

Oral health cannot be maintained solely in our office. Daily brushing and flossing is essential. A healthy diet is necessary and will deliver benefits to your whole body – not just your teeth.

For those who fear dentistry, at Staten Island Dental Care, we offer sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry for anxious patients.

If you suspect you have a cavity or gum disease, call us at 718-761-5757 before it gets worse. We can successfully treat your current problems and restore your dental health. In addition, we will set you on the path toward a healthier future.  You may even want to brighten your smile even more with one of our teeth whitening options.  We treat patients in the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Bayonne areas.
