I recently took my 10 year old to see Dr. Finkelman after I was told by a friend that he was great with kids. My son has been scared of the dentist for as long as I can remember. But not any longer! I'm so happy to report that we walked out of the office smiling, which completely shocked me. I couldn't speak highly enough of Dr. Finkelman and his staff. We will definitely be back.

I have been going to Dr. Varghese (at another location) for 8 years. When he moved I found him. His old location was about a 15 minute drive. This one could be 45 minutes. I would drive an hour to go to him. He is a wonderful kind dentist and a real artist! Recommend him highly. First dentist that didn't scare me. He's the best.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
