As you know by now, because your overall health and safety is our utmost priority, we are closely following every safety and infection control procedure recommended by the ADA and CDC. However, going way beyond these recommendations, in July we installed 2 Jade Surgically Clean Air Filtration Systems. Our office size would require only one Jade unit to kill viruses and bacteria 6 times an hour, but we are so committed to you that we have installed 2 units, one in front of each dental chair. You can be assured that our air is always the safest because we leave the systems on 24/7.

The Jade is patented and industry-leading and is the only air purification system that incorporates 6 different technologies which include, Hydroxl, UV and electronic cell catalytics, and Hepa-RX. The Jade is measured and peer-reviewed to eliminate viruses less than 0.1 microns (the corona virus is measured at .125 microns) and is tested globally with over 70,000 units installed worldwide.

With our warmest wishes for your health and safety, we look forward to seeing you soon and continuing to keep you as healthy as possible.

Welcome to the practice of maxillofacial prosthodontist and cosmetic dentistry specialist Michael Cortese




Do You Need to See a Prosthodontist?

What is a prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a dentist who went to the traditional four years of dental school. After dental school they go for an additional 2-3 years of specialized training. They are recognized as specialists in prosthodontics.

What does a prosthodontist do?

They are specialists in anything relating to crowns & bridges, dentures, implants and cosmetic dentistry. They can also be trained in maxillofacial, reconstructive procedures, occlusion, bioethics and the like.

When do you need to go to a prosthodontist?

If a general dentist is having difficulty with your implant or crown they usually will send you to a prosthodontist. Generally speaking prosthodontists take over when dentists run into problems. But why not go to the expert in the first place before problems arise?
They are experts in fixed and removable dental appliances.
