Smiles for a lifetime thanks to Dr. Lichter
There was a time not that long ago when it
was assumed that missing, broken and yellow
teeth were just an unfortunate part of growing
old. Brooklyn dentist Joseph Lichter, DDS,
insists it no longer has to be that way.
“My motto,” says Dr. Lichter, “is smiles for
a lifetime.” By helping patients make informed
decisions about their oral health needs and
offering the latest in cosmetic dentistry,
Dr. Lichter is committed to maintain or, if
necessary, restore a beautiful smile.
“Sadly,” says Dr. Lichter, “dental problems
can have a real impact on quality of life. Many
people hold back from laughing or smiling
because they are uncomfortable about their
His new facility on Avenue P in Midwood
is not your grandfather’s dental office. Before
showing up for a first appointment, new patients
are encouraged to go online to fill out a “Smile
Analysis.” The analysis asks 17 questions that
help both the doctor and patient decide on a
course of treatment. The new patient is asked to
“tell us what you don’t like about your smile.”
Among the questions are: Are any of your teeth
yellow, stained or somewhat discolored? Do
you have any prior dental work that appears
unnatural? Are the edges of any teeth worn
down, chipped or uneven?
At the office patients will find four dentists,
skilled hygienists and the latest equipment
to meet all of their dental needs. But more
importantly, said Dr. Lichter, he and his staff
offer the care that their patients deserve.
“Unfortunately in today’s world some of the
care part has been lost. Skill and compassion
go hand-in-hand when providing exceptional
Whether they are performing traditional
dental procedures or cosmetic dentistry, Dr.
Lichter’s team takes an overall comprehensive
approach that takes into consideration the
patient’s entire body, not just the teeth.
Dr. Lichter said he is proud to bring stateof
the art dentistry to Midwood.
“I am always trying to be on the cutting edge
of my profession,” he said. He appreciates the
positive feedback he has been getting. The
new office space that has been tripled in size
allows the team to accommodate more patients
This is a full service traditional dental
practice that has been in Midwood for more
than 65 years. Dr. Lichter is the third dentist to
run the office. Of course Dr. Lichter performs
traditional dental procedures such as teeth
cleaning, fillings, root canal therapy and the
removal of teeth. But in addition the practice
offers the latest in restorative and cosmetic
dentistry including implants, porcelain
veneers and crowns and fixed bridges. These
and similar procedures can make a broken
smile look like new.
The office offers Invis-align, an alternative
to metal braces that uses virtually invisible
plastic aligners that gently shift teeth into
place over a period of time. This alternative,
the doctor said, has become increasingly
popular with teens and adults. This procedure
can have a longterm impact on quality of life.
The good news, Dr. Lichter said, is that
people are learning to take better care of
their teeth. And as people in today’s world
expect to live longer they are more open to
what cosmetic dentistry has to offer.
He acknowledges that modern dentistry can
be expensive, especially for treatments that
are not covered by insurance. “Dentists,” he
explains, “can have extremely high overhead,
especially for work done outside the office.”
However Dr. Lichter said he attempts to keep
dentistry affordable so everyone can benefit.
His experience so far has been that patients
find the results well worth the investment.
