Cosmetic makeovers and implant restorations for full-mouth reconstruction are the lab’s specialty, so the shade-taking room featuring Vident’s Easyshade system is frequented by about 10 patients per week; the room is also used for minor adjustments. The new facility is a short train ride from Manhattan, and Smile Design has a driver that picks up clients and patients from the station and brings them to the lab. Although the owners can’t name names, they see their fair share of celebrity clientele!
Smile Design’s waiting area features a 175-gallon fresh-water aquarium with Arowana, Leopard Pleco, Discus, Oscar and Angel Fish. The lab owners, from left to right: Lenny Bushkanets, MDT, MDP, oversees the porcelain department, treatment planning and technical support; Albert Yudkovich, MDT, MDP, manages the CAD/CAM and denture departments; and Alex Tsinberg, MDT, MDP, handles client relations and the metal department.
