Universal Dental
Universal is also called Toothsavers. They ruined my teeth. Horror Show. They take all of your money upfront and literally shove and I mean shove your new teeth regardless of whether they fit or not. They are the most sued dentist in NYC. Run away! Note that 2 of the 3 positive review on this site were written by MLYNN. MLYNN is Mitchell Lynn who is the owner of this horror show.

Eastside Dental Medicine
I've been a patient of Dr. Castracane for about two years. I never thought I'd say this but I finally found a dentist who I feel comfortable with and trust. I am terrified of dental work. My anxiety level has always been very high. Dr. Castracane has a way of keeping me calm. He provides me with a thorough assessment, explains the treatment plan and gives me a full detail of what needs to be done. He makes me feel very comfortable throughout all my treatments( cavities/implants). I hate the sounds, smells, sights, you name it. But I also know the importance of taking care of my dental hygiene-Prevention is the key for a better outcome. Dr. Castracane and his team are very knowledgeable and professional.Owners/Managers be aware: The only thing I noticed as a patient is the high turnover of employees. My recommendation as an outsider looking in is: As a company you have to ensure that your Employees have the right skills for the job but also that they fit well with the company culture, managers and coworkers. Keeping a positive work environment is very important. Recognition and praise are cost-effective way to maintain a happy productive work force. I feel that a high turnover of employees can hurt a company. Paying attention to employees' personal needs and offer more flexibility and recognition from owners/managers, and challenging position with room to learn would definitely maintain a happy productive work force. I highly recommend Eastside Dental Medicine for all your dental needs.

Universal Dental
On January 19, 2013 I went for consultation for dental implants. I was treated by doctors Jerry Lynn, DDS and Robert Winnegarden, DDS. List of irregularities I encountered during my visit:Dr. Jerry Lynn who treated on the above date was not licensedUniversal Dental requested a loan on my behalf without proof of my identification.Universal began treatment without collateral such as an initial deposit, credit card payment or bank check.They performed two dental implants in tooth number four and five an prescribed Amoxicillin 500mg and Ibuprofen 800mgThe prescription pad used was under a different doctor not the one who performed the dental implants.I was exposed to unsanitary conditions even though I had noted medical conditions in the patient's medical history forms. After experiencing the above, I discontinued treatment at Universal Dental Implant Center. In the past known as Tooth Savers. My experience opened my eyes to the fact that some ads are bogus related to prices and also the small printed information that is not clearly visible. The end footnotes. I consider mandatory for us CHECK CREDENTIALS AND REPUTATION of the clinics and the dentists. According to the law, the clinics and the dentists must follow standard procedures to treat patients.The experience with Universal Dental affected me, physical, emotional and economic. I paid them the amount of $ 7,700.-

I appreciate the reminders. The ladies at the front desk are always polite & professional. I had some difficulty with my insurance company, and I got assistance in working it out. I also don't have to wait long to see my dentist & I get in and out fairly quickly.

Tips & Advices
Depending on the circumstances, there might not be a safe or effective alternative to dental implants that would not impact your health and quality of life. This is because healthy teeth are essential for maintaining a balanced diet and proper nutrition. In the case of a single tooth damaged from a cavity or infection, a dentist might opt to perform a root canal procedure to remove the infection while preserving the tooth itself. However, this operation often still requires replacing the top of the tooth with an implant known as a crown. In general, the best alternative to implants is preventing the need for them through proper oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing helps prevent tooth decay that can eventually lead to loss of teeth and other dental problems.
Start by looking into what is and is not covered under your health or dental insurance to understand and estimate costs. Then work with your primary dental care provider to understand treatment options and get recommendations for practitioners. You may also research oral and maxillofacial practices online.
Coverage of implant procedures varies depending on the specifics of your health or dental insurance. It may also depend on whether or not the implants are considered medically necessary as opposed to being an elective or cosmetic procedure. If you are a member of a Medicare health plan, most elective dental procedures are not covered. Medicare may cover some costs for procedures that involve dental surgery, like reconstruction of the jaw following an accidental injury or emergency surgery. Check with your health plan provider for information on how dental implant services are covered.
Full recovery from an implant procedure can take several weeks or months. Assuming the surgery is completed without any serious complications, patients are usually sent home within a day to recover. For the first day or two after surgery, patients are advised not to disturb the implant site or perform any kind of strenuous physical labor. Gauze pads will need to be periodically replaced to control bleeding for the first day or two. Pain medication to reduce discomfort and swelling is also prescribed for at least the first two weeks. Doctors will advise patients to avoid hard food, hot food or liquid, or use of a straw for the first days after the procedure. The best foods are purees and soups that require minimal chewing and can be eaten with a spoon. Patients may also need to rinse implant sites for a few days after surgery. Follow-up appointments within the first few weeks are often required to ensure recovery is progressing.
Those who perform dental implant procedures are known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons. These physicians are generally certified as a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) as well as one or more special degrees for dental surgery or osteopathic medicine. Becoming a dental surgeon requires at least 12 years of academic and professional training in the United States, and requires certification with the state medical board. A general dentist with specific training in implantology can perform implant surgery, as well as certain specialists:
  • Prosthodontist – specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgeon – specializes in dental surgery
  • Periodontist – specializes in periodontal (gum) disease
