Truly a family affair, Impressive Dental Care offers the chance for residents of Brooklyn, New York, to preserve, improve, and beautify their smiles.
Dr. Thomas Planzos, an alumnus of the University of Pennsylvania, has been offering the highest quality of general and cosmetic dentistry for over 30 years. Dr. Planzos’ three dentist daughters have joined him and practice alongside him at their Bay Ridge dental office. After also receiving their dental degrees from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania, Drs. Lea, Penny, and Melena Planzos each went on to pursue a different three-year post-doctoral specialty program at Columbia University, obtaining Master of Science degrees in Periodontics, Prosthodontics, and Orthodontics, respectively.
All being trained at the highest level at the same universities, the Planzos doctors share the same treatment philosophy. Consultations are done with all the treating specialists, which allows for instant communication and seamless collaboration. This eliminates weeks of waiting time and ensures that all team members share the same vision: providing optimal treatment outcomes along with a pleasant, secure, and positive experience for the patient.
Dr. Planzos takes pride in his practice and has continued to invest in the most innovative technology. Procedures that often took multiple weeks to complete can be done quickly, efficiently, and more predictably using sophisticated technology such as digital scanners, 3D x-rays, lasers, and milling machines. Taking a 3D CBCT scan allows the surgeon to plan implant placement and diagnose accurately. Three different types of intraoral scanners allow impression making for crowns, implants, bridges, orthodontics, and other appliances, without the need for impression material, which often causes discomfort, gagging, and a mess. Lasers, when indicated, allow for treatment of gum disease, disinfection of implants, and correction of discoloration of the gums without the need for invasive surgery and stitches. Crowns can be milled in-office for a one-day visit, instead of needing multiple visits and a 2-week lab turnaround time.
The Planzos family was all born and raised in the Bay Ridge community. Although all three daughters left Brooklyn to pursue their passions in dentistry, they have happily returned to their hometown to live, work, and start their own families. Their pride in the community has drawn them back to continue their father’s legacy and create a second generation, true multidisciplinary dental practice that continues to grow.
At Impressive Dental Care in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, patients have access to unparalleled care from a team of warm and compassionate providers.
