Dr. Steven Fischman and his staff provide top notch orthodontic and dental care. Every single person in the office is friendly and helpful and Dr. Fischman is a genuinely lovely person, with a warm, soft-spoken demeanor who explains everything carefully and makes the kids and parents feel really comfortable. I have had three children receive care from him and all three have absolutely gorgeous teeth. When making an investment in your child's health, which includes dental care, Steven Fischman should be your only choice. I have not a single negative comment to make. In addition, though not necessary, they have contests for the kids, giving out great prizes for things earned, their office is clean, light, and comfortable, with a magnificent tropical fish tank, a TV for the kids, and snacks for the rest of us waiting. No other orthodontist in town should even be considered.

I wish to extend to you and Meredith my warmest and sincerest thanks for making my visit to Dr. Santiago's office today feel more like Christmas at a spa than a cleaning at a dentist's office. Surely "office" is not the language to describe such a beautiful and welcoming environment. I was touched very nearly to tears by the sweetness of your gesture - the flowers are stunning and a beautiful reminder that mums surely are worth the wait until fall. Thank you, DeAna, for sharing with me the positively stunning family that is yours. Perhaps you noticed I was nearly speechless? Your three daughters, son and husband are all beautiful treasures. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. I look forward to seeing you and Meredith again soon.

We LOVE Dr. Fischman (and everyone in the office)! From the very first meeting, Dr. Fischman was straightforward, taking his time with us and explaining everything, and not being pushy about getting braces (we met with another orthodontist too, and that was not the case). We truly had a wonderful experience over the past two years--the hygienists were always friendly, the staff tried really hard to accommodate our schedule when booking appointments, and Dr. Fischman was always happy to explain to us in detail what was going on. Finally, when our son got his braces off, the office treated it like a big celebration (we loved that Dr. Fischman took the time to personally say goodbye). I would definitely recommend the practice to everyone I know!

I love this place. I have been a patient for two years now. The place is clean, the staff is professional and the dentist is amazing. I have two kids; one of them has disabilities. The dentist and all the staff have been great; Josh loves to go get his cleaning done. Everyone is patient and friendly. I personally am elways scared of going to the dentist due to a previous bad experience, but they always put me at ease and allow me to bring headphones when I am getting any procedure done. I highly recommend this place!

Your Review My son got his braces off just over a month ago, I have not seen him smile this much in a long time. Dr. Fischmans office is bright and clean with friendly and knowledgeable staff. I would recommend Dr. Fischman to anyone (child or adult). I'm all out of kids to send him but would not hesitate to send someone elses's there. My daughter also went through her orthodontic treatment under Dr. Fischman's care as well.

Thank you to Dr. Fischman and his entire staff for a wonderful experience! I was nervous about my Invisalign fitting. I never had braces as a child and was unsure of this whole process. Everyone (especially my technician Coleen) went out of their way to make me feel very comfortable. They were on time, efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Fischman to anyone looking for Invisalign treatment.

Very welcoming office and friendly staff! Getting braces was an exciting and nerve-wracking proposal for my son but Dr. Fischman's entire office put us at ease, from the moment we walked in the door. The marketing and maintenance incentive plans make it fun to stay engaged. We've only been clients for a few months but already know we made a good decision to seek treatment here.

It was the most comprehensive exam I ever had, everything was explained to me in an understandable manner. I felt very confident with the care I received because the doctor and the hygienist were so knowledgeable. I also like the fact that the office uses up to date computers and software. The doctor and hygienist were very kind and understanding. Thank you so much!

I know I have only had one visit but this is the best atmosphere I have ever been in when coming to not only dental services but in a professional setting. The team here made me feel so welcome even though I was a complete stranger. I'm definitely excited to become a regular here and I want to thank everyone there for being so nice to deal with.

Dr Fishman and his team were absolutely accomodating and very friendly to my twin daughters who both received braces. Although our morning unintentionally began late, they still took us and worked with us patiently and thoroughly! I am now a happy mom of twins with braces and the experience was definitely a great one.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
