Patient Focus

We work closely with you to establish a lifetime of great oral health. We encourage you to bring your children in when their first tooth erupts, to help your children become acclimated to regular dental visits and begin teaching them oral hygiene. This approach can help patients to avoid costly dental complications in the future. Whether you are switching dentists by choice or because you have relocated, we welcome you to visit our office so you can meet our staff.

The Importance of a Strong Dental Foundation

Dr. Robertson takes a holistic approach to oral health care, which is why he provides periodontal and orthodontic care in the same office where we provide routine care and cosmetic treatments. Periodontics focuses on your gums, jaw bone, and other tissues that support your teeth. We offer surgical and nonsurgical periodontal treatments to achieve and preserve optimal gum and tooth health.

Orthodontic care can give you a straight smile that is balanced and easier to clean. It also provides a straight, solid foundation for porcelain veneers and other cosmetic enhancements. Dr. Robertson offers traditional and clear braces, as well as Invisalign®.

Dr. Robertson also specializes in placing dental implants. Thanks to his training at the renowned Misch Implant Institute and his many years of experience, you can feel confident that your surgery will give your smile a healthy and rewarding new lease on life. Dr. Robertson works closely with a local dental laboratory to craft beautiful restorations for your implants.

Harlem Center for Aesthetic Dentistry is one of few dental offices in the country with an on-site cone beam scanner. This amazing 3D x-ray machine provides Dr. Robertson a comprehensive view of each patient's teeth, gums, and jaw bone. The scans taken with our cone beam scanner can be used to design dental implant placement plans and other oral surgeries with enhanced precision.
