A Path to Long-term Health

Dr. Brian Hirschfield in Lakeville, NY, is a dentist committed to disease prevention rather than disease management. During a consultation at our office, we will discuss your long-term health and the goals you would like to achieve. We will help you develop a master plan to achieve those lifelong goals, help you understand more about your risk factors, and assist in creating the plan that is right for you.

Our Philosophy

by Dr. Brian Hirschfield

I have been a general dentist for over 29 years. The proactive approach implemented at my practice is not available in many dental practices today. 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.

I am committed to providing a superior level of personalized care focused on prevention of disease rather than waiting to treat it.

Developing the Master Plan

dental consultation
Technology helps us provide exceptional patient education.

Our goal is to help you make decisions that are in your best interest. We will help you discover your current reality and compare it to what health really looks like. Together, we can formulate a plan 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:

  1. Preventing disease before it occurs.
  2. Detecting and eliminating disease early. 
  3. Rejuvenation of defects caused by disease and preventing further disease. 

Compassionate, Personalized Care

Lakeview Dental opened its doors in 1972. Since that time, we have provided outstanding comprehensive dental care to entire generations of families. Dr. Brian Hirschfield and his talented staff use a friendly and gentle approach in order to make your visit a pleasant, stress-free experience. We only have two doctors at our practice, and most of the members of our close-knit staff have been with us for decades. This has allowed us to develop long-lasting relationships with many of our patients, whom we view as members of our extended family.

When you visit Lakeview Dental, you will never be rushed during an appointment. We will take the time to explain your diagnoses in detail, answer any questions you might have, and help you choose the most appropriate treatment. We are also proud to offer Compassionate Finance™to help make all of our procedures affordable and available to our patients. With Compassionate Finance™, patients can receive flexible payment terms, a personalized plan, and fixed interest rates

The Dental Fitness Program

We have instituted a Dental Fitness program in our 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 health. 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 plaquegum 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%, 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 treat your overall health. 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, focusing on what is important for your long-term health. 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.

Providing Solutions That Work for You

We offer a wide range of treatments, including specialized services for children and seniors. Although we strive to prevent issues through routine examinations and cleanings, we also offer treatments such as dental implants to rebuild damaged smiles. Dr. Hirschfield studied implant dentistry at the world-famous Misch International Implant Institute™ in order to help patients experience the best possible benefits of dental implant procedures. Unlike many other practices, we can perform virtually every step of implant treatment under one roof, including preparatory bone grafting. We can also provide your custom crownbridge, or denture to complete your implant treatment.

If you want to enhance the appearance of your smile, we can use porcelain veneersteeth whiteningdental bonding, or laser gum contouring to achieve your goals. For even more dramatic results, we can perform a smile makeover by combining multiple procedures into a customized treatment plan.
