Choosing a doctor/dentist is one of the most important dental decisions you can make. You want someone who is caring, knowledgeable, and accessible. Someone willing to take the time to go over all of your options and treat you as a person, not just a patient. At our practice, we pride ourselves on our patient service. We offer a knowledgeable staff, safe and proven procedures, and the latest in dental and medical technology. We've created this web site for both new and current patients. It includes specific information on our practice and about Dr. Sachs. Dr. Henry Sachs pioneered the use of lasers in periodontics on Long Island in 1989, and has 24 years of experience in laser periodontal treatment. He is a board certified Long Island periodontist who has lectured extensively in the tri-state area, written articles, and taught laser courses at NYU School of Dentistry and the Nassau County Dental Society. He is one of the first Long Island Periodontists to practice the superior Wavelength Optimized Periodontal Treatment (WPT), utilizing TwinLight dual wavelength technology for the treatment of periodontitis. This revolutionary new method of treatment is truly state of the art because it greatly lessens the need for traditional periodontal surgery, is less invasive, and promises faster healing with little or no bleeding, reduced risk of infection and much less postoperative discomfort. The laser advantage also lends itself to additional periodontal therapy and dental implant procedures including cosmetic and reconstructive treatment. Dental implants are a substantial component in Dr. Sachs practice and he is pleased that even the most challenging dental implant cases are referred to him in recognition of his expertise and caring demeanor as one of the best Long Island Periodontists. We believe most people desire to keep their teeth for a lifetime, and replace teeth that have been lost for better function or esthetics or both. Dental implants are a tried and true option to replace teeth and provide comfort and life-like appearance. Our goal is to help you attain the highest level of dental health you choose. We will help you attain this level of health at whatever pace you desire, and hope that by attaining the highest level of dental health, you will come to realize the joy of a pleasing, comfortable and functional smile. We will always present the most ideal plan of treatment for your specific situation and needs remember, however, that ideal does not mean the only. We believe you should always be aware of the best that modern dentistry can do for you and the latest innovations that can make your experience a positive one!
