Understanding Dental Care

A Dentist plays a crucial role in maintaining our oral health and overall well-being. They are highly trained professionals who specialize in diagnosing, treating, and preventing dental issues. From routine cleanings and checkups to complex procedures like root canals and dental implants, they should provide a wide range of services to keep our smiles healthy and bright. By educating patients about proper oral hygiene practices and addressing any concerns or questions they may have, they should empower individuals to take control of their dental health and enjoy a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

Comprehensive Dental Services

Dentists offer a comprehensive range of services to address various dental needs and concerns. These services may include preventive care such as regular cleanings and exams to detect and prevent dental problems early on. Additionally, they perform restorative procedures like fillings, crowns, and bridges to repair damaged or decayed teeth. They also specialize in cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, and braces to enhance the appearance of smiles. Whatever the dental issue may be, they are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and technology to provide effective solutions and help patients achieve optimal oral health.

Dear Patient,

After 33 years of practice in the greater New Brunswick area, it gives me great pleasure to inform you that my former superstar dental resident that I helped train 12 years ago, Dr. Keren Levine, will be assuming my practice. I will continue to practice with Dr. Levine as her associate for a brief period to assure a smooth transition. Due to the nature of our close relationship, I will be of access to Dr. Levine after my exit to discuss any aspect of your care as she gets to know your unique individual oral health issues and needs.

I am excited that such a skilled clinician that I have a strong connection with will be with you moving forward. Dr. Levine has 12 years of private practice experience and has a stellar reputation. She has invested great time and effort over the years to enhance her clinical and technological offerings, and as a patient you will benefit from the new technology she plans on implementing. Moreover, she will be able to offer additional specialized and cosmetic services that I did not have the training to provide, which will now be available without having to refer out to other providers.

While you will meet some new staff members that Dr. Levine will be bringing on, you will still see familiar faces at your next visit. You may even see Jill and I in the waiting room, as we will be patients of Dr. Levine as well!

I LOVED being your provider throughout my 30+ year clinical career. My staff and patients have been part of my extended family over the years, and I consider myself so lucky.

Thank you in advance for the support you will give to Dr. Levine.

Mitchell L. Weiner DMD
