Dr. Gales has a spotless office and the latest and greatest in technology. His staff is kind and welcoming. Dr. Gales is great. He did a great job at my first appointment, used my x-rays to go through potential procedures with me and why they would be necessary. He explained future expectations too, based on my dental history. I felt comfortable because I could tell they knew what they were doing, and I’m actually excited for my next cleaning.
Going to the dentist can be a difficult chore. My favorite dentist in Bayside, NY recently retired, and I was worried about finding a new one. I wanted someone modern, someone with the latest x-ray technology, technique, and tools. I also wanted someone who was close to my house and had affordable prices. I wanted a staff that was respectful and friendly. I wanted a knowledgeable and easy to talk to dentist. And after doing some research I found University Dental. The entire staff is kind, and they were very helpful in explaining to me the Doctors Network fee schedule. Dr. Gales and his assistant were great and made me feel very comfortable. They did a crown procedure and put in 3 fillings, and it was all done in a day! I feel lucky to have found them, and have already recommended them to all my friends and family.
I’ve had some bad experiences at other dentists in Bayside, experiences that made me stop going. But when I started to think I might have gum disease, I knew it was time to go back. I found this dentist on Doctors Network, and I decided to check it out. I was nervous that they would be condescending since I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time, and I had a lot of plaque build up. My gums were receding a little bit. My dentist was caring and respectful, and he listened to my concerns. I have sensitive gums, and they were careful about cleaning my teeth. I was surprised at how pleasant it was. Dr. Gales wasn’t with me for very long, but he was knowledgeable and kind. He told me I had no cavities, and it turns out my gums aren’t in that bad a shape. I look forward to my next cleaning appointment. Highly recommend! Awesome dentist.

Family Dental Care for the Whole Family in Bayside, NY
General dentistry is as important to your smile as brushing and flossing your teeth. For instance, preventive appointments are necessary to prevent dental health complications like tooth decay and gingivitis. At our Bayside, NY dental office, Dr. Gales and our team offer a variety of general dentistry treatments to help you enjoy a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
The Value of General Dentistry
For your smile as well as your physical well-being, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the primary focus of family dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing. Besides keeping your teeth clean with good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and check-ups help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other procedures, such as tooth fillings, dental crowns, dental implants and implant supported prosthesis, and more, can also help you manage existing issues before they worsen.
Excellent Dental Health in the Long Run
During your visit to your dentist’s office, your dentist will thoroughly inspect your teeth and oral tissues for signs of trouble. Then he or she will consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the issue from growing worse. However, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on maintaining good hygiene and regular general visits to your dentist’s office.
