New Patient Experience

For all our new clients, Dr. Santos-Berkowitz starts with a very thorough exam and cleaning that typically lasts up to two hours. You can expect us to take pictures of your teeth along with x-rays if needed. In addition to checking for gum diseases, Dr. Santos used Diagnodent, a laser fluoresce device that can detect cavities before they become visible to the naked eye. You can also expect to receive a comprehensive smile evaluation along with recommendations on how we can perfect your smile. At the end of your visit a Treatment Plan detailing our findings will be presented for your review.

THE WAND

Afraid of needles? So are we! That's why Dr. Santos has the Wand, a microprocessor-controlled dental anesthetic delivery system that makes the most unpleasant part of your visit virtually pain free! This revolutionary painless injection system often avoids the unpleasant side effects of face or lip numbness. Not only is the Wand virtually painless, it is easier and safer!


I asked when I was getting my novocaine shot and she said she had already given it to me. I felt nothing. Far more pleasant than I expected with really sweet staff!
