I was very impressed with the friendly professional service. From the receptionist to the dental tech to the financial consultant. Dr Markovitch was so kind and positive he really made me feel safe and comfortable. I drove 1 1/2 hours to get there it was well worth it. I highly recommend White Plains Family Dentistry."

Many patients think that extracting a tooth is a viable option to root canal treatment. However if the tooth is extracted, it will be neccessary to replace it with a prosthetic. At White Plains Family Dentistry we provide lifelike solutions to patients with missing teeth. There is nothing that compares to the real thing. Saving a natural tooth is always the best scenario. Around ninety-five percent of root canals that we perform are performed successfully so there is nothing to fear.

Dr. Shukovsky is committed to providing her patients with precision in her technique as well as gentle hands. She finds satisfaction in doing root canals in order to help alleviate her patients’ pain. She also loves working with new patients and explaining to them how to avoid root canals in the future.

I usually don't like going to the dentist, so when I found out I needed a root canal, I was less than thrilled. Dr. Shukovsky eased my anxiety and made the entire process very comfortable."

Dr. Terranova discusses stem cell therapy and PRP for immune compromised patients.

Victor Terranova, D.M.D., M.S.,Ph.D., is a pioneer in the implant industry on the East Coast with over 40 years clinical and practical experience. Recently he has focused on patients that are immuno compromised in their ability for their body to accept dental implants. Some patients may have had chemotherapy and therefore there have degeneration in the bone, others may be diabetic and may have severe periodontal issues that they are combating and being managed by Dr. Terranova. Dr. Terranova uses a method in dental implantology called " PRP and bone morphogenic growth factor' whereby part of the patient’s blood is used to speed the healing process. During the process the patient’s body produces many cells of a particular type (often called growth factors) at the area of the wound that will initiate the healing process. When a patient receives more growth factors directly to the wound area, i.e. where the extraction has taken place and now an implant is being placed, it creates more stem cells which become stimulated in order to produce new host tissue.

When PRP is delivered in this way to the ‘wound area’ it allows the process of healing to work faster and more efficiently with a greater chance of the implant being a success. Dr. Terranova is quick to allay any fears that a patient may have who hears the word ‘blood’ and becomes nervous. “The PRP is a product of the patient’s own blood therefore there is no issue of transmitting disease. The procedure can be performed at the office during a regular dental implant procedure. The process has been very successful for us and we continue to use it.”

Dr. Victor Terranova


"Our primary focus is on returning patients to optimum periodontal health. With continual periodontal therapy, we can prevent further disease progression and maintain the health of the patient's periodontium. In light of COVID 19, this is a serious issue that has to be observed in our efforts to reduce inflammation in the body and prevent systemic disease and a bad reaction to COVID 19."

He also performs gum grafts, periodontal surgery, crown lengthening, periodontal scaling and he has successfully treated TMJ in many patients suffering from bruximsm and other issues.
