When it comes to dental costs in New York, it may seem that going to a good dentist is expensive. There are several factors to consider in determining true dental costs. While routine dental procedures such as dental cleaning and or fillings should cost similar amounts in New York, often dictated by the dental insurance, you may see that advanced aesthetic dentistry, such as all-on-4 teeth replacement, dental implants, or getting bridges and crowns can vary greatly in price. There are several components to the cost of an advanced dental procedure: dentist’s training, dental lab quality, and dental equipment.
For example, all our doctors have completed multi-year post-dental school training to obtain their specializations. Our prosthodontist, Dr. Malkin spent 3 years in her specialty in West Los Angeles VA Hospital, our periodontist, Dr. Moldovan continued her studies in UCLA’s post-graduate periodontics department, and our endodontist, Dr. Fleischer was a chief resident at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.
For our equipment, in Tribeca Advanced Dentistry New York, we use a 3 dental imaging scanner for dental treatment planning by a prosthodontist, a microscope for endodontist, and lasers for periodontal treatment. While this modern equipment adds to the cost of our procedures, we believe it’s essential to the dental treatment success.
Finally, we have a long-term partnership with Beverly Hills Dental Lab located in Beverly Hills, CA for most of our critical dental lab work, which we believe to be one of the best in the country. We use almost exclusively Nobel Biocare dental implants and other critical parts, an acknowledged leader with over 30 years of clinical studies supporting its dental products. Their work and products are in general more expensive but we feel it’s absolutely worth the money as good dental work should last.
Yet, we also believe that the prices should be affordable enough for the middle class and accept most of the good PPO insurances fee schedules. We would rather have a practice with many happy patients who feel they received excellent dental care than try to sell the most expensive dental treatment.
