"Dental makeovers have become more common, less invasive, and more effective in correcting deformities and cosmetic dental problems. The effect of these procedures can be nothing short of dramatic both in terms of appearance and also in terms of correcting, at least partially, personality deficiencies caused by poor self-image. Ugly teeth are no longer a matter of fate; they are now a matter of choice."

Kind, Gentle Dentist
Patients who haven't seen a dentist in years because of long-held fears of pain find relief after seeing Dr. Steven Rasner, a dentist with a knack for calming the most phobic patients. Dr. Rasner can safely sedate patients who have avoided going to the dentist for too long. Often at the point of desperation, these patients have allowed their smiles to deteriorate because of their anxiety. After swallowing a pill under strictly guided conditions, they fall into a relaxed state, and Dr. Rasner can work on their long overdue dentistry. When the sedation wears off, they remember little of the experience, but appreciate their newly restored smile and ability to chew again without pain. That is why patients from all over the world chose to come to Dr. Rasner. He currently has patients from 21 states and from Europe.
