Dr. Steven Cisternas

steven-cisternas-staten-island-dentistWhen I created Bay Dental at the Pointe my vision was to provide a practice where all specialties were taken care of under one roof. In my opinion, gone are the years of having to send or refer a patient to a periodontist, endodontist or oral surgeon. If we find a problem that entails the need for another specialist then I just need to bring the specialist  to see the patient from another room. No waiting for the patient, no multiple appointments and no wasting of a patients time. Our specialists discuss, confer and agree on a appropriate treatment plan taking into account all our levels of expertise and experience.

What the patient gets is a seamless approach to personalized dental health care that will be hard to find in any other practice. Most patients when they come here realize that this is the way it should have been. We take great pride in the appearance and hygiene of our office and it shows. Patient satisfaction is very important.

I am proud to provide my patients with the best in dental technology, treatment options and patient comfort and satisfaction. The biggest asset to Bay Dental at the Pointe are the staff both dental and support staff. It was very important to choose a highly specialized team that had a reputation and were proficient in what they do. Dr Phil Kaplan assists me as one of chief dentists, Dr. Robert Gorgoglione, Dr. Slavatore Espozito and Dr XXX provide outstanding cosmetic and general dentistry. Lastly our periodontal department and oral surgery department is headed by  Victor Terranova, DDM, MS, PhD. who brings 40 years of experience and has performed thousands of dental implants in the Tri-State area. The support staff are outstanding and are well versed in dealing with patient issues and insurance issues. If ever a patient is not satisfied with our work all they have to do is call and speak to me. Whatever it is we make sure it's right. 

I look forward to seeing you as a patient at Bay Dental at the Pointe.
