      in New York, NY |
      I was originally a patient of Dr. Alper in 2008. He told me I had a cavity, but I moved to Atlanta before I had it filled. The new dentist in Atlanta told me I didn't have a cavity even though Dr. Alper said I did (he used his x-rays and Dr. Alpers x-rays) . Two years later the Atlanta dentist told me that I had not one but two cavities. One that Dr. Alper told me about, and another on the tooth next to it. Now I have two fillings instead of one. I wish I had Dr. Alper fill it right away.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Alper says...

      NYS requirements call for 60 hours continuing education classes to be taken per each 3yr registration period. In an effort to keep himself up to date on all of the latest technology and techniques, Dr. Alper often takes that many hours every year. He believes that the more information that he has on what is new, innovative or being tested in dental techniques, the better the services that he can provide to his patients.

      In addition to this, Dr. Alper uses state-of-the-art technology in the office.  These are tools that have been proven to make dental visits easier, less stressful, quicker and the results of the dental work more effective.   Dr. Alper believes that just like any other disease, early diagnosis of tooth decay aids greatly in treatment prognosis and he is constantly researching the most efficient tools in dentistry and will work with only the most effective technology.

      Dr. Alper says...

      Dr. Alper's Office provides both cosmetic and general dentistry.  He recommends cleanings and oral evaluations once every six months.  Not just your teeth, but your entire mouth is Dr. Alper's concern. Your initial exam begins with a discussion of your general health, as the interrelation between oral and general health is significant. Besides a thorough examination of your teeth, Dr. Alper will inspect the soft tissues, such as your gums, tongue and cheeks. Of course every patient is given an oral cancer screening at every exam.

      In addition to this, Dr. Alper's office does fillings, extractions, mouthguards, and crowns.

      Dr. Alper's goal is to help you keep your teeth and mouth healthy in addition to providing a comfortable environment for you to discuss and work towards your own dental goals.  His office does veneers and Invisalign and many other cosmetic procedures.
