As a Platinum Provider with Invisalign clear braces (clear aligners), we have successfully treated hundreds of patients to date.

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 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
  • New teeth within a day,
  • Front tooth implants
  • Single-tooth implants
  • Multiple teeth implants
  • Implant bridges
  • Sinus Lifts

I had a great experience today for my first visit to Dr. Joseph Salim. The office staff was VERY professional. My appointment was at 12:30 PM and I anticipated filling out new patient paperwork so I got there a little early. The paperwork was explained very clearly and they even took a photo of me so that they could "try and remember everyone as best they can." I thought this was a nice touch and made the experience personal.

I finished my paperwork and handed it in right at 12:30. And just like that, they were ready for me. My dental assistant was very sweet and made sure to take extra care if I had any sensitivity. The cleaning was very thorough and quite fast (not rushed).

When Dr. Salim came in, he made me feel as though he actually cared about my dental health and about me as a new patient. I've never had a dentist speak to me for that long and take the extra time to explain exactly what he saw when he looked at my teeth.

Overall, I was 100% pleased with this visit and I highly recommend him and the staff.

I had such a great first visit with Dr. Salem. I would say it was the best dentist experience I've ever had! He was very knowledgeable and Jennifer, the hygienist, seemed very thorough. He took his time to explain and give examples of what was going on in my situation. By the time I left, everything made so much sense around the issue I was experiencing - something my previous dentist had not picked up on. I am optimistic about continuing with the treatment plan he has recommended for me. So grateful I found him - thanks to ZocDoc and all the rave reviews!

Went for a cleaning and checkup. The office was small but clean and everyone in the office was extremely kind. The nurse who conducted my cleaning was extremely helpful, patient, and thorough. Dr. Salim was wonderful as well. I was so impressed with the amount of time he dedicated to me. Most doctors are in and out in a flash, but Dr. Salim took the time to explain everything to me and discuss specifics. Overall I was extremely satisfied with my visit and will be going back! Highly recommend Dr. Salim and his team.

This is a modern, friendly practice with lovely staff and a genuine feeling that they care about you. My exam was thorough and the dentist spent a generous amount of time describing what he found and suggesting a treatment plan. The front office staff were efficient and lovely.Dec 10, 2020, update: Just had extraction, gum, and bone work with Dr Rashad. Couldn’t be more impressed with the experience. He is extremely skilled, explaining the procedures fully before proceeding and then managing potential pain very effectively. Once again, this was one of the best dental experiences of my life. Looking forward to completing the work under his care.March 22, 2021, update. Yet another great experience with Dr. Nazeri and her assistant. As usual, she helped me relax for what turned out to be a painless set of fillings. I can’t recommend her and this practice more enthusiastically. This is superb care.
