Dentistry, Fine Art & Personal Expression


Smiling unabashedly.  Your inner radiance is amplified by the subtle, artistic enhancements to your smile.  Light dances on the contoured lines of each tooth.  A gleaming hint of translucence adds depth and opulence.  Scale, balance and texture have all been carefully coaxed into a state of harmonic perfection.

You can rest easy.  Express yourself with abandon.  Your smile is perfect.

As a dentist, sculptor, and perfectionist, Dr. Rifkin spares no degree of focus or effort in securing ideal results for his patients.

It is the nature of an artist to concern himself with all aspects of form.  When that artist is also an evolved aesthetic dentist with several decades’ experience, the results you receive are nothing short of phenomenal.
