It is estimated that 40% of the American adult population suffers from sleep disorders. When conditions such as obstructive sleep disorder cause your body to become deprived of sufficient oxygen, your body reacts by straining other body systems, which can increase your risk of heart disease and other serious conditions. Dr. Hirschfield in Lakeville, NY, is committed to the continuing education needed to identify airway issues and their effects on oral health and systemic health. Dr. Hirschfield collaborates with orthodontists and ENT physicians to help patients overcome airway obstruction and lead healthier lives.

"I am committed to providing a superior level of personalized attention focused on prevention of disease rather than waiting to treat it. We believe that our calling is to help people transform their health – from accepting the status quo of managing their disease, to moving purposefully toward a health and wellness orientation. We encourage patients to prevent future disease by helping them make good decisions and create healthier lives for themselves." Dr. Brian Hirschfield
Developing the Master Plan
Our goal is to help you make decisions that are in your best interests. We will help you discover your current reality and compare it to what total wellness really looks like. Together, we can formulate a strategy that will give you the best chance of needing as little dentistry as possible during your lifetime.
The Master Plan is your path to a better life. It is a document that you are involved in creating based on three specific areas:
- Preventing disease before it occurs.
- Detecting and eliminating disease early.
- Reversing defects caused by disease and preventing further disease.
"Our Purpose is to guide people to achieve the highest level of well-being that is personally appropriate for them and in doing so, enhance the health and quality of their lives, as well as our own." Dr. Brian Hirschfield
The Dental Fitness Program
We have instituted a Dental Fitness program in our Lakeville, NY, practice. Dr. Michael Schuster of The Schuster Center created this program. After many years of research and testing, he developed a way that people could begin to understand where they stood regarding their dental wellness. This program allows us to quantify how much disease each patient has, as well as quantifying their progress once they undergo some treatment. This method tells us your health status and gives you a path to where you wish to go.
We measure plaque, gum pockets. and bleeding. This allows us to determine how healthy or unhealthy you are. Knowing what health looks like (the goal), you become an active participant in your Master Plan to achieve health and wellness. By achieving plaque-free and bleeding-free scores above 90 percent, you keep the need for future dental work to a minimum and save time and money.
The Four Levels of Dental Care
Dr. Hirschfield has classified four levels of dental care, ranging from urgent needs to ongoing preventive care. With his help, you can reach the top level of care in which you and Dr. Hirschfield work together on a regular basis to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.

Understanding Complete Health Dentistry
Complete Health Dentistry is a way to look at the relationship between your mouth and body to determine how to work towards overall wellness. We call this the Oral-Systemic connection. There are very few practices that specialize in complete health dentistry. Our team is among the first in our area working to give you this very high level of care. We strive to enrich the quality of life of every person we meet.
For many people, dentistry is about the mechanics – have decay – place a filling. Break a tooth – place a crown. Extract a tooth – it's only one, I’ll let it go. I can get by. This is DISEASE MANAGEMENT. As a physician of the mouth, I cannot take your disease away from you. I can, however, show you a way that you can have NO gum disease and NO decay, AND have a stable chewing system that will serve you for life.
Dental implants are an advanced solution for missing teeth. Dr. Hirschfield studied implant dentistry at the world-famous Misch International Implant Institute in order to help those with missing teeth experience the best possible benefits of dental implants. Unlike many other practices, we can perform virtually every step of implant treatment, including preparatory bone grafting, under one roof. We can also provide your custom crown, bridge, or denture to complete your implant treatment.
Our Lakeville, NY, doctors are strong proponents of preventive care. We believe that keeping your teeth, gums, and jaws in good shape can prevent discomfort and greatly improve your quality of life. During each appointment, we educate patients on how to best care for their teeth, gums, and soft tissues to prevent dental disease before the onset of issues.
Many children and adults do not get the dental care they need because they are afraid of the dentist. In addition to creating a comfortable, stress-free environment, our team is proud to offer dental sedation. Sedation can help you overcome your anxiety and get the care you need at the dentist. Dr. Hirschfield has completed extensive training in various types of sedation.
Although the function of your smile is our first priority, we can also enhance chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth with cosmetic dental care. Our dentists offer several cosmetic treatments, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, gum contouring, dental bonding, and complete smile makeovers. Before performing any cosmetic procedure, we will ensure that your teeth and gums are in excellent condition.
Your teeth can become damaged as a result of a sudden accident or natural aging. With restorative care, our dentists can restore the function and beauty of your smile. We offer several restorative dental procedures, including tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, dentures, and full mouth reconstructions. For your convenience, all restorative procedures are performed on-site.
Providing Solutions That Work for You
