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.
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.
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:

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 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%, you keep the need for future dental work to a minimum, and save time and money.
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.
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 crown, bridge, or denture to complete your implant treatment.
If you want to enhance the appearance of your smile, we can use porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental 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.
