Patients Appreciate A Team That Puts Patients First
My experience was great. I had a complex issue that needed to be addressed. Dr. Hirschfield did an unusually comprehensive analysis of my problem. He then presented multiple options for treatment. The pros and cons of each were addressed. There was absolutely no upselling. I believe he put my welfare above his profits. He established a lot of confidence in me, that we would make an optimum decision for my care. The results were excellent. Everyone in the office were very pleasant to deal with. This is nice, but IMHO should not be a determining factor for the selection of a dentist. Dr. Hirschfield's approach, patience, and competence are most important.View on Google
The staff at Lakeview go above and beyond. They take the time to get to know you, and even remember the little things. They are truly wonderful and they have been so helpful. My husband forgot to mention he had an extraction scheduled four days from his regular cleaning. I had other doctor visits for that day and they managed to find us an opening right after his cleaning so we wouldn't have to worry about coming back Monday. I know we got lucky, but the fact that they took the time to look and see if they could fit us in proves they go above and beyond. Huge shout to Patti and Stephanie for all their help!View on Yelp

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.
A Path to Long-Term Health
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.
Oral Health Influences Your Whole Body
Understanding Complete Health Dentistry
For many people, dentistry is about the mechanics. For example, if there's decay, you 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, Dr. Hirschfield cannot take your disease away from you. However, with Complete Health Dentistry, he can show you a way to have NO gum disease, NO decay, AND a stable chewing system that will serve you for life.
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.

"Nice, professional and accommodating." We Make Excellent Dental Care a Team Effort
The Institute of Medicine (US) Committee on Sleep Medicine and Research reports that 50 to 70 million adult Americans suffer from sleep disorders. When conditions such as obstructive sleep disorder cause your body to become deprived of sufficient oxygen, it reacts by straining other 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. He collaborates with orthodontists and ENT physicians to help patients overcome airway obstruction and lead healthier lives.
Dental implants are an advanced solution for missing teeth. Dr. Hirschfield studied implant dentistry at the world-famous Misch International Implant Institute, so he can perform virtually every step of implant treatment, including preparatory bone grafting, at our office in Lakeville, NY. We can also provide your custom crown, bridge, or denture to complete your new smile.
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. Our team is proud to offer dental sedation to help nervous patients overcome anxiety. Dr. Hirschfield works with a trained anesthesiologist to offer 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, we can restore the function and beauty of your smile. We offer several restorative procedures, including dental crowns, dental implants, and full mouth reconstruction. For your convenience, all treatments are performed on-site.
