At Allison Avenue Dental, scheduling your smile make over has become simpler than ever before.  We specialize in correcting cracked, chipped, uneven and discolored teeth.  Our dentists use a variety of methods to improve patients' smiles with veneers, bridges, crowns, fillings, bonding and whitening techniques to give you a smile that's as good as new!

Award Winning Dentistry

Our Dentists have been recognized by several publications and have been awarded as the Top Dentists in the nation.  Beside all the awards and accolades, both Dr. Fern and Dr.  Santoro are just good people, who believe giving the best care is the only way to practice dentistry.



Clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.

Conscious Sedation



During a procedure, conscious sedation lets you stay awake and aware, without feeling discomfort and without the stronger side effects and dangers of general anesthesia. Some patients may experience brief periods of sleep. Patients who receive conscious sedation are usually able to speak and respond to verbal cues throughout the procedure, communicating any discomfort they may experience to the provider. A brief period of amnesia may erase any memory of the procedures.


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. The cap restores the tooth’s shape and size, strength, and appearance.

A dental crown may be needed to:


-Protect a weak tooth (for example, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth

-Restore a broken tooth or a severely worn down tooth

-Cover and support a tooth with a large filling and not much tooth remaining

-Hold a dental bridge in place

-Cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth

-Cover a dental implant

-Cover a tooth treated with a root canal
