Zoom Teeth Whitening
Try Opalescence® Boost or the Zoom teeth whitening in the heart of NYC, Monday through Saturday. Zoom whitening is a teeth bleaching procedure that uses a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide gel to lighten your enamel and dentin by releasing oxygen in the presence of UV light. Dental discoloration and staining resulting from certain foods, drinks, smoking, or the natural aging process can visibly improve after just one session. Remember that your aesthetic consultation visit is always complimentary.
Invisalign, clear braces (clear aligners)
Sutton Place Dental Associates uses the most advanced cosmetic dentistry techniques. We simply adapt them to your situation and individual needs, to restore or boost your smile. As a Platinum Provider with Invisalign clear braces (clear aligners), we have successfully treated hundreds of patients to date. We take care of any misaligned or crowded teeth, address any gaps between your teeth, and correct an underbite, overbite, open bite, or crossbite. Our team uses Invisalign aligners to help straighten your teeth discreetly. Again, the initial consultation visit is complimentary.
Porcelain Veneers
We enhance and perfect your smile by using porcelain veneers. They are very thin shells made of a robust tooth-colored material. They cover the front surface of your teeth. They are typically used when your teeth are chipped, broken, damaged, discolored, or are smaller in size than average.
Sleep Apnea Dentist in NYC
At SuttonPDA you will find your caring sleep apnea dentist in midtown, NYC, with extensive training in the management of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Is snoring an issue or using a continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP), a source of discomfort? Are you looking for an obstructive sleep apnea treatment without a CPAP machine? If so, rest assured that we will address your needs using oral appliance therapy. At SuttonPDA, we have broad experience in sleep apnea treatments.
Dental Implants
Dental implants are a good treatment option for teeth that are already missing or need to be removed due to infection, root canal treatment failure, or tooth fracture.

At Sutton Place Dental, our dental implant specialists genuinely care about their patients. Their attention to details combined with decades of experience in implant dentistry, while using the latest techniques and technologies, will yield optimal results.

Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. The implants strongly integrate within the jawbone and can replace missing teeth.
Replacement of missing teeth will improve aesthetics, help alleviate TMJ discomfort, and assist in better digestion of your food. The results will be a significant improvement in oral and overall health. Dental implants will also help with boosting your self-confidence.

Failure to replace missing teeth can lead to loss of bone, shifting of the adjacent and opposing teeth, and malalignment of the existing dentition.

At an advanced implant dental facility like SuttonPDA, you will benefit from an array of techniques such as:

  • Teeth in about an hour,
  • All-on-Four: four titanium screws placed in the jawbone will serve as support for an entire arch of false teeth. They look natural and serve as a permanent and stable alternative to dentures. An all-on-4 implant is less invasive than traditional dental implants, where each and every false tooth is placed on a single titanium screw anchored in the jawbone.
  • New teeth within a day,
  • Front tooth implants
  • Single-tooth implants
  • Multiple teeth implants
  • Implant bridges
  • Sinus Lifts

professional and efficient dentists in NYC

Dr. Mina Elahi

Are you looking for a compassionate pediatric dentist?

Dr. M. Elahi has more than 25 years of experience in treating children from birth to 18. She is versed in the latest pediatric dentistry techniques and pediatric psychology also for children with special needs. Dr. Elahi makes patients’ experiences caring and fun. Many of her little patients look forward to their next dental visit.

Dr. Joseph Salim

Your smile is no longer what you like it to be?

With over 29 years of practice, Dr. Joseph Salim, our cosmetic dentist, blends science, healthcare, and art to provide you with a glowing smile. He uses time-tested procedures like porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, dental bondings, implants, Invisalign, and Zoom teeth whitening to reach optimal results, customized to each patient’s needs and unique characteristics. The choice of treatments will be influenced by your teeth’ color, width, length, shape, position, and orofacial harmony.

Dr. Shahpari Nazeri
Dr. Nazeri has over 30+ years of experience – an ideal prosthodontic specialist who’s rendered complete smile makeovers by reconstructing and transforming smiles – granting a life-changing experience.
Dr. Michael H. Reshad

Do you suffer from gingivitis (irritated, bleeding, or swollen gums) or periodontitis?

If so, our periodontist, also a dental implants dentist, Dr. M. Reshad, will address it to promote healthy gums and prevent potential tooth loss. Dr. Reshad cures gum disease with non-surgical periodontal treatments like scaling and root planing (deep cleaning). Deep cleaning eliminates tartar and plaque from below and above the gum line. Root planing removes tartar and debris from root surfaces, which smooths and helps facilitate gum reattachment. If you suffer from more advanced gum disease, gums will pull away from teeth roots and form pockets that trap plaque and harmful bacteria. Regular brushing cannot eliminate plaque within pockets, therefore a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) by a periodontist (gum specialist) is necessary. Dr. Reshad also treats more advanced gum disease with osseous surgery and pockets reduction, and gum grafts.

Do you have missing or broken teeth? Then don’t go through life having a gap in your smile. Rediscover the pleasure and comfort of enjoying life with natural-looking teeth—benefit from a dental implants specialist with over 25 years of experience, like Dr. Reshad. Also, take advantage of the support provided by an advanced implant dental center like Sutton Place Dental Associates.

Dr. Matthew Malek

Is your tooth severely inflamed or infected?

Dr. Malek is a Board Certified endodontist and the Post Graduate Endodontic Program Director at the Department of Endodontics at NYU. He has over 15 years of experience performing root canal treatments.

Dr. Malek will intervene when a tooth is severely inflamed and also when a tooth’s pulp inside the root canal is seriously infected or damaged because of an extensive cavity or other types of inflammation and trauma. He will typically remove the pulp and seal the void with an inert material.  The process is usually painless and quick and he will preserve dental structures (dentin and enamel) as much as possible.

Dr. Bahram Modiri

Do you wish to straighten your teeth and enhance your smile?

With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Modiri’s expertise with Invisalign clear braces will make it a seamless process.

During the first complimentary consultation, Dr. Modiri will evaluate your smile. Using the latest iTero 3D digital scanning system he will develop a detailed 3D digital impression of your teeth to simulate results once treatment will end.

As an Invisalign patient, Dr. Modiri will always provide you with complimentary at-home whitening gel to brighten your smile.

Depending on your needs, he will also use crowns, bridges, or porcelain veneers to ensure you have a fresh, sparkling white smile.

In the process, Dr. Modiri will avail himself of modern cosmetic dentistry’s best ceramic materials and technologies.

I visited SUTTON Place Associates for the first time yesterday. It is a beautiful space, a calming atmosphere and such a warm and caring staff.
The dentists were “normal” people, not like some other offices where certain doctors can intimidate you. They explained the scientific rationale for what is needed in my situation and answered my questions thoughtfully.
I have no hesitation in referring this group, really lovely, Holistic approach!

I have been going to Sutton Place Dental for two years now, and have seen several dentists there (Dr. Salim, Dr. Reshad, and Dr. Malek) for various procedures. Each experience has been 5 star, and each of the dentists takes the time to explain what is happening step-by-step-you never feel rushed. And you will not find better bedside manner than with Dr. Salim! The front desk is also very pleasant and helpful, and they always try to work with you to accommodate your schedule. 5 stars all around.

Seen for an emergency filling. The office staff worked to find a slot within 24 hours, and booked a time with Dr. Salim. Filling was quick and easy. I also did molds for a mouth guard, when Dr. Salim flagged that it would be less than 5% the cost the oral surgeon estimated.

Reminders are sent to make and keep appointments ...

The best dentist I've ever been too. Seriously. From the front desk to the specialists, everyone in this office goes above and beyond to provide exceptional care. The women behind the desk called my insurance company themselves when my carrier tried to (wrongfully) deny coverage & helped me out. They use new technology that makes the whole experience more comfortable and painless than any other I've been to. I commute from Brooklyn because this place is just so good!

I’ve had several appointments with Dr. Modiri, my smile transformation is almost complete! Dr. Modiri is amazing. He patiently explains every procedure, the reasons for his recommendations, and follows up with a thorough and smooth treatment. “No pain, no gain” has an entirely different meaning when it comes to Dr. Modiri’s treatment; it’s no pain, all gain!!! Add my Invisalign treatment to the mix; ready for Hollywood!

Dr. Mina Elahi is my 10-year old’s dentist. He looks forward to seeing her every 6 months because she’s so sweet & personable & at the same time so professional. She explains everything to him & is genuinely interested in what he has to say and/or ask. Plus, she’s always on time. I myself saw Dr. Reshad & he’s incredible as well. Very professional & didn’t rush me & answered all my questions with great patience. I love this office & 110% recommend it to others.

I didn't go to the dentist for 3-4 years because for my prior appointments at other dental offices, I found the staff to be rude and inattentive and I always waited 30 minutes to an hour after my appointment time to be let in (yeah, this is Manhattan).This office is amazingly efficient (in and out for my dental deep cleaning in less than an hour, including paying for my services). I felt very safe with their PPE procedures and equipment and I never felt pressured to take any procedures I didn't want because of cost or felt was unnecessary.Scheduling/re-scheduling appointments is super easy with text messaging/e-mails and text reminders for my appointment. Shout out to Delia, the patient coordinator, and Barsha who did my teeth cleanings. Because of them, I'm going to be better about going to the dentist more regularly.

I've been a patient here for a number of years and I've never had a bad experience here. Everyone is so friendly. The office is clean. They are very efficient with sticking with appointment times and getting you in and out without making you feel rushed at all. My dentist gives me adequate attention and explains all procedures very well. I see Dr. Salim. He is also very personable 🙂
