  • Education: DMD
Dr. Alex attended Penn State University on an athletic scholarship where he graduated with a degree in Biology in 1977. He then took advanced level graduate courses in both chemistry and biology before working at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. He then attended Tufts University Dental School where he earned his DMD in 1981. He has taken thousands of hours of continuing dental education over the last 35 years with an emphasis on occlusion, adhesion, comprehensive dentistry, materials, and cosmetic dentistry. He lectures and teaches on a regular basis and “Dentistry Today” has continually named him as one of the top educators in dentistry. Dr. Alex is an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and past president of the AACD New York Chapter. To achieve accredited status dentists must demonstrate an extremely high proficiency in reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry by presenting a number of peer reviewed clinical cases before an accreditation committee.  A comprehensive written examination must also be passed.  As of December 2010, only ten dentists in New York State had successfully achieved accredited status. Visit the AACD web site at AACD.ORG for further information on this organization.

ProHEALTH DENTAL REMAINS OPEN TO ADDRESS DENTAL EMERGENCIES

With the ongoing threat of coronavirus, the American Dental Association has issued a guideline that all elective dental procedures be postponed for three weeks. We have decided to follow this guideline and, thus, will be rescheduling appointments starting the week of April 19.

However, to address any dental emergencies that may arise, we will be maintaining office hours Monday through Saturday throughout our Lake Success, Huntington, Howard Beach, Astoria and White Plains locations listed below.

We’ve also added teledentistry so you can connect with one of our expert dentists  through your laptop, tablet, or smartphone and have a face to face consultation. You can call us at 855-PHD-CARE or 718-DENTIST to register for an appointment.

Please be assured that our offices are being operated under CDC guidelines including screening all patients who pose a risk of having coronavirus.

We will also be available via email (info@prohealthcaredental.com) and telephone (855-PHD-CARE or 718-DENTIST) to answer any questions or address any clinical concerns you may have.

We know these are difficult times and want to do all that we can to fulfill our mission to address not just your dental and oral health needs, but to promote your overall health and well-being.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you when we resume normal operations . In the meantime, please do all that you can to stay safe and healthy.
