Less than 2 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Masters. When you see a dentist with MAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Masters practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.
Dr. Frederick Hecht and team have created an inviting atmosphere with comfortable, state-of-the-art treatment rooms featuring natural light, as well as a philosophy of care that promotes teamwork between the patient and dentist and comprehensive dentistry to address total oral health. At Staten Island Dental Care, you’ll experience excellent clinical treatments and personalized attention. Here are testimonials of happy customers.
Every one of our patients is different. That’s why Dr. Hecht and our experienced dental care team offer various sedation dentistry options to manage your comfort.
• Laughing Gas can relax a patient during dental procedures. The patient will be awake and responsive to the dentist. The gas is delivered through a facemask.
• Oral Conscious Sedation is a good option for patients who experience intense dental anxiety or for those who need complex work done. With oral conscious sedation, the patient takes an anxiety-reducing drug prior to dental work, and sedation dentist Dr. Hecht also administers laughing gas. The patient will be
completely relaxed, but not “out,” during the visit. Learn more about oral sedation in our patient library.
• IV Sedation is delivery of intravenous medication during a procedure. Patients will be comfortably sedated during the visit.
“I went to Dr. Hecht and the office and staff were amazing. They were extremely welcoming and reassuring. Dr. Hecht and Angie made me very comfortable. All in all my experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend them. If you have a fear of the dentist they will change that!!!” – Vincent B.
