                    [post_content] => Before I tell you how life altering this experience has been for me, I want to tell you that Dr. Pollack’s team is second to none. I felt as though I was family from the very second I called for my consultation. I walked into the office with fears from past dentists I have visited and immediately, I was greeting with understanding and real emotion. I knew – I was going to matter to this team.

I had a major accident at nine years old that broke my front teeth. This led to years of insecurity, I was constantly afraid to smile. This led to many different procedures to try and correct the problems but I was always unhappy with the results. This kept me searching for the one dentist that I felt I could trust, and could actually fix my smile.

Before meeting Dr. Pollack and his team I went on numerous consultations – one dentist even told me that my teeth wouldn’t be able to hold veneers. I was devastated. I went on several other visits and felt that no one really cared for me and my fears, until I walked into Dr. Pollack’s office. I knew I would be using his group to help me.

After months of preparation, Sunday morning visits, and midnight calls – sorry Doc, I know that you must have wanted to strangle me – Dr. Pollack changed my life. Not once did I ever feel that I couldn’t call or visit.

Today, I am overwhelmed at how happy I am with my results. Never in my life have I smiled with such confidence. I get compliments every day at how beautiful my teeth are and how perfect they look. I would never trust another dentist to touch my teeth again.

Love to all the girls at the office – you are all truly amazing!

Sincerely,
Mia

                    [post_content] => Dr. Pollack and his dental team provided a collaborative environment for the restoration of my smile. After years of tetracycline damage and early damage to a front tooth certain events years later provided the opportunity to begin the restorative process. This was not to be completed overnight. Having several different options available to me, the overall program and commitment was to be substantial. It was clear from my first meeting with Dr. Pollack and his team that this was going to take some time and all participants had to sign for the duration. 

Firstly we had to address the appropriate course of action for the front tooth that had deteriorated over the years and now had to be replaced. Once we laid the ground work for this tooth we could begin to discuss the overall smile and how we would accomplish the great results I now find myself with. A great smile is not something I was born with. Braces as a teenager straightened my teeth only to be followed by years of tetracycline damage and later the replacement of a front tooth. That front tooth never quite matched my other teeth. Further complicating the match and installation of the replaced tooth was the tetracycline damage. A match was never achieved. A smile yes, but one that was certainly not rewarding. As we evaluated tooth structure, color, and number of teeth to repair the involvement of the team and Dr. Pollack became quite apparent. It was a system of checks and balances. In and out, back and forth came the team, Dr. and my wife all providing great input and support. It was a comfort level one needs when making changes to your appearance, it was life changing. This process made my choices, my wife’s help and concurrence much easier than expected. We were now armed with a program that would take 18 months to complete with support from all, the entire time. Over the next 18 months, it is sufficient to say that whenever I needed help Dr. Pollack and his team were there. As I recall it was late in the day, on a weekend that I had to make a call to repair a retainer that I had broken. It had to be replaced or repaired before an important business presentation that Monday. Within hours I was in Dr. Pollack’s office evaluating how to get me back on track for Monday morning. Without a hiccup things off without a hitch, he achieved success. I now find myself six months later looking in the mirror admiring the results and wondering why I waited so long. As I’ve said this was a big commitment and one that Dr. Pollack prepared me for not only just prior to and during the process but years later as I returned for annual checkups and the like. This would have been very difficult period had I not had Dr. Pollack’s, the team’s and my wife’s support. For this, I thank you all.

                    [post_content] => I can’t believe this my smile! It’s been a long road, which fortunately led me to all of you. It began with a childhood accident which over time caused my front tooth to darken. Then, many bleaching attempts and a rather sad looking attempt veneers from my longtime family dentists. Finally, Debbie recommended that I come see Dr. Pollack. I was so impressed by your work, professionalism and the family like atmosphere from that very first consultation, that I knew coming to Beautiful Smiles was the right decision.

You knew what to do from the start. After all, I had a lot of gum tissue which you correctly suspected covered some enamel, so you sent me off to the periodontist. He confirmed your suspicions and suggested surgery to lift the gum lift. Well, several months later, I got up the nerve to have the surgery and it was a success (and the healing wasn’t too bad). After a few months of healing, we were ready to begin the process of whitening, then temporaries and finally the porcelain veneers. Your team couldn’t have been more accommodating to my needs, more concerned for my well being or more caring of the outcome!

I commend you Dr. Pollack and your team for you continued outstanding work, your professionalism and your dedication to your patients. I whole heartedly recommend your services to anyone seeking cosmetic dentistry. You are a master in your field!

Thank you for your time, compassion and for tolerating many visits which included a 2 year old tag along! You are a great team!

Sincerely,

Dana P.

                    [post_content] => In 1984 I started Stonehenge LTD, a tie manufacturing company in New York City, which helped to create some of the most popular ties in America.

The Jerry Garcia ties, the Cocktail Collection in support of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the Jimmy V Collection in support of cancer research, Ties for Tibet, Christopher Reeve, Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis and Gilda Radner were among other tie programs which helped raise millions towards great cause related organizations. I traveled around the world and was a guest speaker many times to help promote these great causes.

I do have a confession. For many years I had a full mustache so that I could hide my teeth which caused me not to smile often at these engagements. Dr. Pollack finally convinced me to restore my mouth in its entirety to maximize function and to enhance my smile. I took Dr. Pollack’s advice and had crowns, onlays, a bridge and veneers placed. Since the final completion, there has never been a day or two that goes by that someone compliments me or my teeth, smile or overall positive confidence. I now trim my mustache tight and smile all the time when showing my teeth. I love my new look- even with my mouth open.

After moving to Millburn in 1984, I found myself traveling back to Baltimore so that I could continue to have my yearly checkup with my doctors that I’d visited for many years. Several new friends convinced me that I should find new doctors in the area. I was highly recommended to Dr. Pollack’s office. Now almost 20 years later, my entire family uses Dr. Pollack for their dental needs. We all know how easy it is to recommend family doctors, lawyers, dentists or any professional person. However, the referral to Dr. Pollack’s office far exceeded my expectations. I must honestly say that I’ve never met any doctor that was continuing to educate his team with every aspect of new technology year after year. In fact, Dr. Pollack’s loyal team has been with him for many years and is certainly like family to all. Most important, their professionalism, kindness, caring and their gentle touch is probably most obvious to everyone.

I never felt so confident and as comfortable as with this new me. So, if anyone needs a spark of confidence, a new look that can show more of the real you, and a new way to feel good about yourself- I highly recommend having Dr. Pollack and his team meet with you to explain how you too can make a difference in the way you feel and look at life.

                    [post_content] => Up until the day Marc Dworkin underwent cosmetic dentistry at the Millburn, New Jersey, based practice of Dr. Harold Pollack, no one ever commented on his teeth. Now he frequently hears what a beautiful smile he has thanks to the skill and artistic talent of Dr. Harold Pollack.

Marc had thought about changing his smile for years but wasn’t yet ready. He had a root canal on his upper front tooth at age 13 that later began to darken. The night before the grand opening of his restaurant in 1975, he bit into a frozen Milky Way and the root canal tooth snapped completely off. An emergency temporary procedure was done.

In 1982, Marc made his way to Dr. Harold Pollack’s practice. Dr. Harold Pollack replaced his missing tooth with a single-tooth bridge. That bridge remained in Marc’s mouth with only minimal maintenance until it recently chipped. Marc kept trying to convince himself that it looked cool, but he knew that it needed to be fixed.

At the same time, outside financing became available in the form of a one-year interest-free credit card. Marc and Dr. Harold Pollack had been thinking about redoing his smile for years. And now everything was in place!

Dr. Harold Pollack and his team spent considerable time with Marc designing his new smile prior to any work being done. He looked at many Before and After photos and had all his questions and concerns answered well in advance of any cosmetic dentistry treatment.

The first step was teeth whitening. Then a combination of crowns, porcelain veneers, and a bridge were designed by Dr. Harold Pollack. A porcelain veneer is a thin, semi-translucent shell bonded to the tooth. It is an ideal solution for those permanently stained, discolored, broken, chipped, or crooked teeth.

Like many of our Millburn, New Jersey, area patients, Marc is extremely happy with the results. His smile looks beautiful and natural. In only two visits he achieved extreme results without any surgery. That’s the blessing of cosmetic dentistry!

Marc always had good self-esteem. “Now it’s 10 levels higher the best gift I ever gave myself!” says Marc. When he shows his friends and family the before and after photos, they realize and praise his results.

“I never realized how bad your teeth were!” they say. Because his smile now looks so great and natural, people haven’t really noticed what is different about him, just that he looks great!

Marc believes that people judge you by the way you look; the first impression is the most important. A nice smile will influence success at work.

“When someone has a nice smile it creates a whole new look on your face and awe in your personality, it creates a different mood,” Marc says. Marc’s suggestion to anyone contemplating improving their smile is to look closely at Dr. Harold Pollack’s photos of the before and after cases. “Know that you are responsible for what you are and what you look like. And you can change it if you want!”

Marc has been in the specialty food and catering business since 1975. He opened Nana’s Deli in Livingston, New Jersey (famous for their tuna), back in 1981 and it has grown into a national business. You can view his products online at www.nanasdeli.com.

Even though she had previously had braces, she was not happy with the look of her smile. “Now, they definitely look straight and much whiter as well.” In Dr. Harold Pollack’s endeavor for continuing education, Terry accompanied him to the nationally-renowned Rosenthal Center at New York University where he applied laminates and crowns to improve Terry’s less-than-satisfactory smile. Porcelain laminates are thin, custom-made veneers of high-strength porcelain bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. They are used to correct gaps, color, and poorly aligned and shaped teeth. Porcelain-bonded crowns now use a high-strength porcelain to eliminate the unsightly gray lines that sometimes show with older crowns.

“I was a little nervous before the procedure and was very happy to find out that it didn’t hurt a bit!” Terry said. “Dr. Harold Pollack is truly an artist – and one with a gentle touch. I was amazed at the amount of work he did in such a short period of time, and I couldn’t be happier with the results!” she also said. Terry’s smile is now one that she is proud to show off!

I am writing you these lines to thank you for helping me restore my smile. I had over the past several years developed a formative smile, where I did my best to not show my teeth. Considering going through the restoration was an easy decision after I had seen from your catalogue of patients what the outcome could be expected to be.

I have now enjoyed my new smile for about a year, and everything is perfect.

I wish to thank you for providing such excellent service and professional guidance to me, and I also would like to send my best regards to your very professional and pleasant colleagues.

It would be my pleasure to provide any references or support in order to make this type of cosmetic dental treatment better known.

Yours sincerely,

J.H.

He and his caring team members made me feel comfortable and confident about the decision I was making. I walked away from that initial consultation informed, empowered, and so very excited. Over the next few weeks, I enjoyed every visit with Dr. Pollack’s family of technicians. Each team member seemed to share in my excitement, and I cannot thank them enough. They understood that these were no ordinary trips to the dentist. This was a preparation for a new me.

Now, when I look in the mirror, it is difficult for me to remember a time when I didn’t love to smile. I would be lying if I said a day goes by without someone… a friend, a co-worker, a waitress at the diner… complimenting my smile. I don’t have to tell you how greatly improved my teeth look, the picture speaks for itself. But what I wish I could express for anyone reading this is the change that occurs within. A change that begins with that first visit to Dr. Harold Pollack.

                    [post_content] => For most of his life, Nick had a fear of going to the dentist. In fact, his anxiety about climbing into a dentist’s chair was so great that dealing with continuous pain in his mouth, and feeling self-conscious when he smiled, seemed to be better alternatives than receiving dental care. But after his first visit to Dr. Harold Pollack’s office, his perception of dentistry began to change.

During regular visits with Dr. Harold Pollack and his team, Nick was well-informed about what to expect during dental procedures. His fear was eased and he was able to receive dental work he greatly needed. His confidence level was increased to the extent that he was able to undergo treatment that would change his life. After a series of procedures, including extractions and periodontal surgery, Nick was ready for dental implants. Implants are artificial replacement teeth. The implants were restored with crowns by Dr. Harold Pollack. They look and feel like Nick’s own teeth, allowing him to chew and smile with ease. Also porcelain laminate veneers were done on the front teeth which were discolored and malpositioned. “It has given me more self-confidence in my appearance and it has allowed me to smile a lot more”, says Nick, who used to try to cover his teeth with his upper lip when he smiled.

He advises those who experience a similar fear of the dentist not to put off taking care of their teeth, since it will only lead to greater dental complications in the future. He was fortunate to develop a relationship with a dentist he trusts. According to Nick, it was Dr. Harold Pollack’s professionalism combined with his accommodating team that allowed him to take the first step towards a healthier mouth. “He has a genuine care for what he is doing and he is very proficient and professional in his approach,” says Nick. “From Harold to everyone in the office, they always make you feel as though you are welcome and they are going to take good care of you”.

I love each and every one of them and actually look forward to seeing them and catching up on my visits. I’ve been going to the office for six years and was always interested in the idea of getting veneers – my top teeth were smaller than i would’ve liked and worn away after years of grinding my teeth. So since I started out as a patient, I asked Dr. Pollack a thousand questions about the process of getting veneers. He was always patient and happy to spend as much time with me necessary. When I finally decided to take the plunge I felt like I knew all that I should know and any questions that came up were answered happily right away. The process of getting the veneers was as simple and painless as possible, and I am so beyond happy that I did it. I smile brighter in pictures, feel more confident and am just thrilled that I did it!

there for many years and some have been there from my first visit 25 years ago which says a lot about the environment that Dr. Pollack creates and maintains for his staff and his patients. I have had a fair amount of dental work done over the years which has most recently resulted in my getting Veneers for my top teeth. I could not be happier with the results. The entire process was fully explained to me in detail from the initial visit to my final visit
today. Thanks to Dr. Pollack I now have the smile I have always wanted.

The dental hygienist at Dr. Pollack’s office (Kim) was gentle and caring. Kim was also completely thorough in teaching me the best way to brush and floss to take care of my teeth and gums.
The quality and expertise of Dr. Harold Pollack and his whole team are by far the very best I have ever experienced in a dental office. From the very first visit, I felt completely comfortable and at ease.
I am so happy with my smile! The porcelain veneers are beautiful and are so natural looking. Everytime I see my smile in the mirror it makes me feel wonderful! Thank you Dr. Pollack!

Beautiful Smiles indeed!"

I always dreamed of having cosmetic work done, but was very hesitant and didn’t know where to turn. I happened to catch Dr. Pollack on TV, which interested me to contact his office. From the first phone call I made speaking with Linda, who spent an impressive amount of time explaining and answering all the initial questions I had, to the informative meetings with Dr. Pollack preparing me for my cosmetic dental work, I knew I was in the right place. I felt very comforted and eased going through the process, and Dr. Pollack always took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly. Dr. Pollack is a compassionate dentist with the knowledge and skill to provide his patients exceptional cosmetic dentistry. I truly had a wonderful experience with Dr. Pollack and his supportive team. I highly recommend Dr. Pollack for his personalized, attentive patient care. Thanks again and again for my new smile!

                    [post_content] => Before I tell you how life altering this experience has been for me, I want to tell you that Dr. Pollack’s team is second to none. I felt as though I was family from the very second I called for my consultation. I walked into the office with fears from past dentists I have visited and immediately, I was greeting with understanding and real emotion. I knew – I was going to matter to this team.

I had a major accident at nine years old that broke my front teeth. This led to years of insecurity, I was constantly afraid to smile. This led to many different procedures to try and correct the problems but I was always unhappy with the results. This kept me searching for the one dentist that I felt I could trust, and could actually fix my smile.

Before meeting Dr. Pollack and his team I went on numerous consultations – one dentist even told me that my teeth wouldn’t be able to hold veneers. I was devastated. I went on several other visits and felt that no one really cared for me and my fears, until I walked into Dr. Pollack’s office. I knew I would be using his group to help me.

After months of preparation, Sunday morning visits, and midnight calls – sorry Doc, I know that you must have wanted to strangle me – Dr. Pollack changed my life. Not once did I ever feel that I couldn’t call or visit.

Today, I am overwhelmed at how happy I am with my results. Never in my life have I smiled with such confidence. I get compliments every day at how beautiful my teeth are and how perfect they look. I would never trust another dentist to touch my teeth again.

Love to all the girls at the office – you are all truly amazing!

Sincerely,
Mia

                    [post_content] => Dr. Pollack and his dental team provided a collaborative environment for the restoration of my smile. After years of tetracycline damage and early damage to a front tooth certain events years later provided the opportunity to begin the restorative process. This was not to be completed overnight. Having several different options available to me, the overall program and commitment was to be substantial. It was clear from my first meeting with Dr. Pollack and his team that this was going to take some time and all participants had to sign for the duration. 

Firstly we had to address the appropriate course of action for the front tooth that had deteriorated over the years and now had to be replaced. Once we laid the ground work for this tooth we could begin to discuss the overall smile and how we would accomplish the great results I now find myself with. A great smile is not something I was born with. Braces as a teenager straightened my teeth only to be followed by years of tetracycline damage and later the replacement of a front tooth. That front tooth never quite matched my other teeth. Further complicating the match and installation of the replaced tooth was the tetracycline damage. A match was never achieved. A smile yes, but one that was certainly not rewarding. As we evaluated tooth structure, color, and number of teeth to repair the involvement of the team and Dr. Pollack became quite apparent. It was a system of checks and balances. In and out, back and forth came the team, Dr. and my wife all providing great input and support. It was a comfort level one needs when making changes to your appearance, it was life changing. This process made my choices, my wife’s help and concurrence much easier than expected. We were now armed with a program that would take 18 months to complete with support from all, the entire time. Over the next 18 months, it is sufficient to say that whenever I needed help Dr. Pollack and his team were there. As I recall it was late in the day, on a weekend that I had to make a call to repair a retainer that I had broken. It had to be replaced or repaired before an important business presentation that Monday. Within hours I was in Dr. Pollack’s office evaluating how to get me back on track for Monday morning. Without a hiccup things off without a hitch, he achieved success. I now find myself six months later looking in the mirror admiring the results and wondering why I waited so long. As I’ve said this was a big commitment and one that Dr. Pollack prepared me for not only just prior to and during the process but years later as I returned for annual checkups and the like. This would have been very difficult period had I not had Dr. Pollack’s, the team’s and my wife’s support. For this, I thank you all.

                    [post_content] => I can’t believe this my smile! It’s been a long road, which fortunately led me to all of you. It began with a childhood accident which over time caused my front tooth to darken. Then, many bleaching attempts and a rather sad looking attempt veneers from my longtime family dentists. Finally, Debbie recommended that I come see Dr. Pollack. I was so impressed by your work, professionalism and the family like atmosphere from that very first consultation, that I knew coming to Beautiful Smiles was the right decision.

You knew what to do from the start. After all, I had a lot of gum tissue which you correctly suspected covered some enamel, so you sent me off to the periodontist. He confirmed your suspicions and suggested surgery to lift the gum lift. Well, several months later, I got up the nerve to have the surgery and it was a success (and the healing wasn’t too bad). After a few months of healing, we were ready to begin the process of whitening, then temporaries and finally the porcelain veneers. Your team couldn’t have been more accommodating to my needs, more concerned for my well being or more caring of the outcome!

I commend you Dr. Pollack and your team for you continued outstanding work, your professionalism and your dedication to your patients. I whole heartedly recommend your services to anyone seeking cosmetic dentistry. You are a master in your field!

Thank you for your time, compassion and for tolerating many visits which included a 2 year old tag along! You are a great team!

Sincerely,

Dana P.

                    [post_content] => In 1984 I started Stonehenge LTD, a tie manufacturing company in New York City, which helped to create some of the most popular ties in America.

The Jerry Garcia ties, the Cocktail Collection in support of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the Jimmy V Collection in support of cancer research, Ties for Tibet, Christopher Reeve, Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis and Gilda Radner were among other tie programs which helped raise millions towards great cause related organizations. I traveled around the world and was a guest speaker many times to help promote these great causes.

I do have a confession. For many years I had a full mustache so that I could hide my teeth which caused me not to smile often at these engagements. Dr. Pollack finally convinced me to restore my mouth in its entirety to maximize function and to enhance my smile. I took Dr. Pollack’s advice and had crowns, onlays, a bridge and veneers placed. Since the final completion, there has never been a day or two that goes by that someone compliments me or my teeth, smile or overall positive confidence. I now trim my mustache tight and smile all the time when showing my teeth. I love my new look- even with my mouth open.

After moving to Millburn in 1984, I found myself traveling back to Baltimore so that I could continue to have my yearly checkup with my doctors that I’d visited for many years. Several new friends convinced me that I should find new doctors in the area. I was highly recommended to Dr. Pollack’s office. Now almost 20 years later, my entire family uses Dr. Pollack for their dental needs. We all know how easy it is to recommend family doctors, lawyers, dentists or any professional person. However, the referral to Dr. Pollack’s office far exceeded my expectations. I must honestly say that I’ve never met any doctor that was continuing to educate his team with every aspect of new technology year after year. In fact, Dr. Pollack’s loyal team has been with him for many years and is certainly like family to all. Most important, their professionalism, kindness, caring and their gentle touch is probably most obvious to everyone.

I never felt so confident and as comfortable as with this new me. So, if anyone needs a spark of confidence, a new look that can show more of the real you, and a new way to feel good about yourself- I highly recommend having Dr. Pollack and his team meet with you to explain how you too can make a difference in the way you feel and look at life.

                    [post_content] => Up until the day Marc Dworkin underwent cosmetic dentistry at the Millburn, New Jersey, based practice of Dr. Harold Pollack, no one ever commented on his teeth. Now he frequently hears what a beautiful smile he has thanks to the skill and artistic talent of Dr. Harold Pollack.

Marc had thought about changing his smile for years but wasn’t yet ready. He had a root canal on his upper front tooth at age 13 that later began to darken. The night before the grand opening of his restaurant in 1975, he bit into a frozen Milky Way and the root canal tooth snapped completely off. An emergency temporary procedure was done.

In 1982, Marc made his way to Dr. Harold Pollack’s practice. Dr. Harold Pollack replaced his missing tooth with a single-tooth bridge. That bridge remained in Marc’s mouth with only minimal maintenance until it recently chipped. Marc kept trying to convince himself that it looked cool, but he knew that it needed to be fixed.

At the same time, outside financing became available in the form of a one-year interest-free credit card. Marc and Dr. Harold Pollack had been thinking about redoing his smile for years. And now everything was in place!

Dr. Harold Pollack and his team spent considerable time with Marc designing his new smile prior to any work being done. He looked at many Before and After photos and had all his questions and concerns answered well in advance of any cosmetic dentistry treatment.

The first step was teeth whitening. Then a combination of crowns, porcelain veneers, and a bridge were designed by Dr. Harold Pollack. A porcelain veneer is a thin, semi-translucent shell bonded to the tooth. It is an ideal solution for those permanently stained, discolored, broken, chipped, or crooked teeth.

Like many of our Millburn, New Jersey, area patients, Marc is extremely happy with the results. His smile looks beautiful and natural. In only two visits he achieved extreme results without any surgery. That’s the blessing of cosmetic dentistry!

Marc always had good self-esteem. “Now it’s 10 levels higher the best gift I ever gave myself!” says Marc. When he shows his friends and family the before and after photos, they realize and praise his results.

“I never realized how bad your teeth were!” they say. Because his smile now looks so great and natural, people haven’t really noticed what is different about him, just that he looks great!

Marc believes that people judge you by the way you look; the first impression is the most important. A nice smile will influence success at work.

“When someone has a nice smile it creates a whole new look on your face and awe in your personality, it creates a different mood,” Marc says. Marc’s suggestion to anyone contemplating improving their smile is to look closely at Dr. Harold Pollack’s photos of the before and after cases. “Know that you are responsible for what you are and what you look like. And you can change it if you want!”

Marc has been in the specialty food and catering business since 1975. He opened Nana’s Deli in Livingston, New Jersey (famous for their tuna), back in 1981 and it has grown into a national business. You can view his products online at www.nanasdeli.com.

Even though she had previously had braces, she was not happy with the look of her smile. “Now, they definitely look straight and much whiter as well.” In Dr. Harold Pollack’s endeavor for continuing education, Terry accompanied him to the nationally-renowned Rosenthal Center at New York University where he applied laminates and crowns to improve Terry’s less-than-satisfactory smile. Porcelain laminates are thin, custom-made veneers of high-strength porcelain bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. They are used to correct gaps, color, and poorly aligned and shaped teeth. Porcelain-bonded crowns now use a high-strength porcelain to eliminate the unsightly gray lines that sometimes show with older crowns.

“I was a little nervous before the procedure and was very happy to find out that it didn’t hurt a bit!” Terry said. “Dr. Harold Pollack is truly an artist – and one with a gentle touch. I was amazed at the amount of work he did in such a short period of time, and I couldn’t be happier with the results!” she also said. Terry’s smile is now one that she is proud to show off!

I am writing you these lines to thank you for helping me restore my smile. I had over the past several years developed a formative smile, where I did my best to not show my teeth. Considering going through the restoration was an easy decision after I had seen from your catalogue of patients what the outcome could be expected to be.

I have now enjoyed my new smile for about a year, and everything is perfect.

I wish to thank you for providing such excellent service and professional guidance to me, and I also would like to send my best regards to your very professional and pleasant colleagues.

It would be my pleasure to provide any references or support in order to make this type of cosmetic dental treatment better known.

Yours sincerely,

J.H.

He and his caring team members made me feel comfortable and confident about the decision I was making. I walked away from that initial consultation informed, empowered, and so very excited. Over the next few weeks, I enjoyed every visit with Dr. Pollack’s family of technicians. Each team member seemed to share in my excitement, and I cannot thank them enough. They understood that these were no ordinary trips to the dentist. This was a preparation for a new me.

Now, when I look in the mirror, it is difficult for me to remember a time when I didn’t love to smile. I would be lying if I said a day goes by without someone… a friend, a co-worker, a waitress at the diner… complimenting my smile. I don’t have to tell you how greatly improved my teeth look, the picture speaks for itself. But what I wish I could express for anyone reading this is the change that occurs within. A change that begins with that first visit to Dr. Harold Pollack.

                    [post_content] => For most of his life, Nick had a fear of going to the dentist. In fact, his anxiety about climbing into a dentist’s chair was so great that dealing with continuous pain in his mouth, and feeling self-conscious when he smiled, seemed to be better alternatives than receiving dental care. But after his first visit to Dr. Harold Pollack’s office, his perception of dentistry began to change.

During regular visits with Dr. Harold Pollack and his team, Nick was well-informed about what to expect during dental procedures. His fear was eased and he was able to receive dental work he greatly needed. His confidence level was increased to the extent that he was able to undergo treatment that would change his life. After a series of procedures, including extractions and periodontal surgery, Nick was ready for dental implants. Implants are artificial replacement teeth. The implants were restored with crowns by Dr. Harold Pollack. They look and feel like Nick’s own teeth, allowing him to chew and smile with ease. Also porcelain laminate veneers were done on the front teeth which were discolored and malpositioned. “It has given me more self-confidence in my appearance and it has allowed me to smile a lot more”, says Nick, who used to try to cover his teeth with his upper lip when he smiled.

He advises those who experience a similar fear of the dentist not to put off taking care of their teeth, since it will only lead to greater dental complications in the future. He was fortunate to develop a relationship with a dentist he trusts. According to Nick, it was Dr. Harold Pollack’s professionalism combined with his accommodating team that allowed him to take the first step towards a healthier mouth. “He has a genuine care for what he is doing and he is very proficient and professional in his approach,” says Nick. “From Harold to everyone in the office, they always make you feel as though you are welcome and they are going to take good care of you”.

I love each and every one of them and actually look forward to seeing them and catching up on my visits. I’ve been going to the office for six years and was always interested in the idea of getting veneers – my top teeth were smaller than i would’ve liked and worn away after years of grinding my teeth. So since I started out as a patient, I asked Dr. Pollack a thousand questions about the process of getting veneers. He was always patient and happy to spend as much time with me necessary. When I finally decided to take the plunge I felt like I knew all that I should know and any questions that came up were answered happily right away. The process of getting the veneers was as simple and painless as possible, and I am so beyond happy that I did it. I smile brighter in pictures, feel more confident and am just thrilled that I did it!

there for many years and some have been there from my first visit 25 years ago which says a lot about the environment that Dr. Pollack creates and maintains for his staff and his patients. I have had a fair amount of dental work done over the years which has most recently resulted in my getting Veneers for my top teeth. I could not be happier with the results. The entire process was fully explained to me in detail from the initial visit to my final visit
today. Thanks to Dr. Pollack I now have the smile I have always wanted.

The dental hygienist at Dr. Pollack’s office (Kim) was gentle and caring. Kim was also completely thorough in teaching me the best way to brush and floss to take care of my teeth and gums.
The quality and expertise of Dr. Harold Pollack and his whole team are by far the very best I have ever experienced in a dental office. From the very first visit, I felt completely comfortable and at ease.
I am so happy with my smile! The porcelain veneers are beautiful and are so natural looking. Everytime I see my smile in the mirror it makes me feel wonderful! Thank you Dr. Pollack!

I always dreamed of having cosmetic work done, but was very hesitant and didn’t know where to turn. I happened to catch Dr. Pollack on TV, which interested me to contact his office. From the first phone call I made speaking with Linda, who spent an impressive amount of time explaining and answering all the initial questions I had, to the informative meetings with Dr. Pollack preparing me for my cosmetic dental work, I knew I was in the right place. I felt very comforted and eased going through the process, and Dr. Pollack always took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly. Dr. Pollack is a compassionate dentist with the knowledge and skill to provide his patients exceptional cosmetic dentistry. I truly had a wonderful experience with Dr. Pollack and his supportive team. I highly recommend Dr. Pollack for his personalized, attentive patient care. Thanks again and again for my new smile!
