Your First Visit to Smiles on Broadway

Patient Intake Process

Dr. Katz and the Smiles on Broadway staff describes the typical first dental consultation at the Long Island practice. He discusses that it is more than just a dental visit, he likes to get to know his patients on a personal level. With this information, he is able to craft individualized care for each patient.

Over the course of a given day, you may play a number of different roles: employee, coworker, consumer, parent. At the typical dentist’s office, you invariably become a patient, a case to be treated and little else. This is what many people expect from a trip to the dentist, and most never question whether they deserve better.

At Smiles on Broadway, we not only know that you deserve better, but we will work tirelessly to provide the best dental care that you have ever received.

We know that you are more than simply a patient; you are an important individual, and your smile is a reflection of your unique personality and lifestyle. How could a dentist possibly customize a treatment plan for you without first getting to know you? At Smiles on Broadway, we are personally interested in you, not merely as a patient but as a human being, and we will take the time to get to know who you are before we even look into your mouth. At every stage of your care, you will be treated with the respect, courtesy, and genuine concern for your wellbeing that you deserve, without fail.

If you are in need of an exceptional dentist in Long Island, we urge you to contact Dr. Sultan Salem, Dr. Dilmarys Peña, Dr. Steven Katz and the Smiles on Broadway team of talented dental professionals today. We would be pleased to welcome you into our practice and introduce you to a dental experience that will surpass your every expectation.

Trust, Respect, Concern – The Smiles on Broadway Difference

Your initial visit to Smiles on Broadway will immediately be different from any dental appointment you’ve ever had. You will be greeted by a staff of friendly, knowledgeable professionals who are wholly committed to ensuring your comfort and satisfaction. Our team will be happy to answer any questions you might have and encourage you to take advantage of the heated neck wraps and other spa-like amenities we offer.

During your consultation with either Dr. Salem, Dr. Peña or Dr. Katz, the focus will be entirely on you: your needs, your goals, your concerns. We want to know about your past dental experiences so that we can duplicate the elements that you liked while avoiding those that left you dissatisfied. If you have any fears or apprehension about receiving dental treatment, we want to help put you at ease and do whatever we can to make you feel entirely comfortable.

At Smiles on Broadway, we want to be lifelong partners in your dental care. By building a relationship based on mutual trust, respect, and concern, we feel confident that you will return to our office for all of your oral health needs, knowing full well that you will receive superior care each and every time.

Your Initial Dental Exam

After we have had the opportunity to get to know you better, we will conduct a thorough, comprehensive dental exam. Our office features state-of-the-art technology that makes every stage of the dental exam comfortable, efficient, and highly effective. Our diagnostic systems include the VELscope®, which allows us to screen for and detect oral cancer in its earliest stages, when it is easiest to treat. Our digital photography equipment permits us to capture crystal-clear images of the inside of your mouth so that we can identify potential problem areas and better explain your treatment options to you.

Our advanced technology also allows us to present you with a preview of what your smile will look like after you undergo a given procedure or combination of procedures. Want to know what your teeth would like with porcelain veneers? Dental bonding? Teeth whitening? We can show you in seconds. We want you to be able to make informed, confident decisions regarding your treatment, and our digital imaging system makes that more possible than ever.

Once we clearly understand your needs and goals and have diagnosed any potential oral health problems, we will work with you to create a unique, fully customized treatment plan. We happily work with patients who have been told in the past by other dentists that their cases are too complex. Whatever your needs, we will find the most effective plan of treatment for you.

The “Permission Statement”

One of the most distinguishing elements of our practice is our one-of-a-kind “permission statement.” At the beginning of your initial consultation, the doctors will ask for your permission to be completely honest and forthcoming in their communications regarding your dental care. In exchange, they will promise to listen closely to you and to allow you to make decisions regarding your course of treatment without pressure or judgment.

The relationship between patient and doctor is at the heart of effective dental treatment. The more open and genuine the relationship, the better the treatment. It’s that simple.
