Welcome to Contemporary Dentistry!


If you are looking for a welcoming, comfortable, and compassionate dental home in Rochester, NY, then we want to invite you to visit Contemporary Dentistry. Our extensively trained dentists, with over two decades of experience, are trailblazers in bringing holistic dentistry to the Rochester area. Our highly-trained dentists offer holistic dentistry, which focuses on both oral health and overall well-being. Everything we do is centered on you, your comfort, and your health.

Experience The Difference of Holistic Dentistry

Even though we’re dentists, we don’t just care about your mouth—we care about your whole body health. An essential part of our approach to dentistry is to ensure your comfort and that every procedure benefits your entire body. Some of our holistic practices include using fluoride-free prevention products, minimally invasive procedures, using biocompatible materials, Ozone therapy, safe removal of amalgam fillings, using the least toxic materials, sleep disorder screening and testing, TMJ prevention and treatment, and much more. Our goal is to provide you with exposure to the least amount of toxins possible while also preserving your natural teeth.

At Contemporary Dentistry, we utilize composite fillings. Amalgam (metal) fillings contain mercury which is toxic and not safe. Additionally, metal fillings can cause discomfort and crack teeth when exposed to cold and heat.

Yes! Our office is decorated with relaxing decor and we use aromatherapy to reduce odor-based anxiety. In addition to setting up a relaxing environment, we offer three sedation dentistry options including oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. We will recommend the best option to help you stay relaxed for the duration of your treatment.

Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign

Straightening your teeth has never been so discreet, comfortable, or convenient. Invisalign clear removable aligners can straighten your teeth without the hassles that come with metal braces. You will wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before moving onto a new set. The clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. Best of all, the clear aligners are nearly invisible and completely removable to make eating and cleaning your teeth a breeze. In as little as six months, you can transform your smile and reap the benefits of straight teeth. Book a consultation to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

Some patients might have orthodontic problems that are too severe for Invisalign. Please book a consultation to find out if it’s the right treatment option for you.
Invisalign can help teeth with gaps, crookedness, crowding, misalignment such as overbite, underbite, or crossbite. Talk to our Rochester, NY holistic dentists to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
