Your bad breath is telling you something. Are you listening?

What do dentists say about bad breath? Ask any dentist and they will tell you this: bad breath does not discriminate. Studies have shown that 20 to 30 percent of people in the U.S. have bad breath, or what us medical-types call halitosis. So, if you are brushing your teeth regularly but the odor is… Read More


You Get What You Pay For

“I want the cheapest dental fix possible!” “…But the dentist up the road said…” I’ve lost track of the times in my career I have heard patients say just this! And while the comments vary each time, it begs the question: Are cosmetic dentist’s worth the investment? I built my dental practice on the philosophy… Read More


Mercury Fillings: What’s the Big Deal?

Many times new patients come to my practice after suffering from subpar dental work completed by low-cost dentists in the area. Low prices may seem great at the time, but ask yourself… Read More


Anti-Aging Dentistry

Justin Russo, DDS It’s a common question: “why should I bother keeping that back tooth if no one sees it?” Let’s think about this – have you ever seen someone out at a restaurant and their cheeks appear to be sagging? They’re probably missing some of their back teeth. Your teeth not only give you… Read More


New Year, New You, New Teeth?

Justin Russo, DDS Here we are with a new year upon us and low and behold we are faced with making resolutions once again. Just last week I was at the gym and it was packed, and tours were being given to all the prospective gym-goers. As a practicing dentist that focuses on cosmetics, I… Read More
