Welcome to Contemporary Dentistry!

Restore Enhance Relax

If you are looking for a welcoming, comfortable dental home in Rochester, NY, then we want to invite you to visit Contemporary Dentistry. Our highly trained dentists Dr. Arlene Messer and Dr. Anna Belous offer holistic dentistry, which is focused not just on your oral health, but on your overall well-being. We’re not just looking for disease—we’re promoting your health. And we utilize noninvasive and herbal treatments whenever possible to avoid disrupting your body’s natural balance.

Dentistry with a heart is our practice philosophy. Everything we do is centered on you, your comfort and your health. Our dentists and their support team will respond to and even anticipate your needs to make an experience more pleasant than you thought a visit to the dentist could be.

Dentists Who Care

At Contemporary Dentistry, our dentists are people who care about the people who are our patients. You see, at other dental practices, you might develop a patient-dentist relationship, but at Contemporary Dentistry, we strive to develop a personal relationship with every member of our dental family.

That’s part of why we utilize a holistic approach to dental care. Even though we’re dentists, we don’t just care about your mouth—we care about your whole person. That’s body, mind, and spirit. An essential part of our approach to dentistry is to ensure your comfort. We have assembled a dental team whose compassion and care encourage a relaxed feeling, and the office environment we’ve built also helps you feel relaxed the moment you enter.

We also know that for some patients with extreme anxiety, a caring and compassionate approach might not be enough to overcome their previous experiences with dental care. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry that can help you relax during your dental visit.

Highly Trained Dentists

Messer Logos

It’s a natural extension of their caring that our dentists want to ensure they are offering the best care available. That drives them to constantly hone their expertise in dental care, learning about new techniques and technologies that can improve their patients’ experiences. Our dentists have received training focused on endodontic therapy (root canal treatment), the placement and restoration of dental implants, oral conscious sedation, Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, Lumineers, ClearCorrect, and IV sedation. Dr. Messer has been named a Fellow by the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), and is a member of the Holistic Dental Association, Mercury-Free Dentists, and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. Dr. Belous is a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS). Dr. Gemini is a board-certified periodontist, a specialist in treatment and surgery for the gums and bone that surround our teeth.

These are dentists whose care for their patients is reflected in their drive to expand their knowledge and practice of dentistry.
