Our commitment is to provide our patients with the highest quality dental care that is possible. This involves education both for Dr. Fina and the group at Fina Family Dental as well as education for you in terms of your options. To this end we are continuously pursuing courses to update our knowledge. In terms of your dental knowledge, we prefer that our patients understand any needed treatment and take the time to communicate this information.
A mid-career change of passion and desire to help improve people's lives brought Dr. Fina to dentistry. Dr. Fina was only four years old when he announced to his parents that he would be a dentist when he grew up. This dream was finally realized when he graduated from New York University College of Dentistry. Aside from the thorough training for general dentistry at NYU, Dr. Fina has taken more than two yearlong courses in the surgical placement and prosthetics of implants. The first was under the direction of Dr. Shankar Iyer at Smile USA in Elizabeth, NJ and the second course was under the direction of Dr. Mark Hunt at the Triangle Dental Institute in Durham, NC. At that time Dr. Fina received the distinction of becoming a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). Dr. Fina remains current on diverse dental procedures and issues through conferences, on-line courses, periodicals and other trainings including short courses on mini-implants at the Shatkin First Center, Amherst, NY, and the Dynamic Dental Instruction organization. He is active in the American Dental Society, Richmond Dental Society, and the Northern Neck Dental Society. He has committed hundreds of hours training to make crowns in his office the same day via a Cerec machine. Implants and same day crowns are state of the art procedures and Dr. Fina is particularly happy to be able to offer these services to all patients.
