Practicing Modern and Safe Dentistry
Dr. Harry Pascal
Cosmetic / Restorative/ Full Service
Dr. Harry Pascal is the founding doctor of Stuyvesant Dental Associates. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in microbiology and bio-physics. Dr. Pascal received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the NYU School of Dentistry. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, and the New York County Dental Society. Dr. Pascal has been treating patients, at this location, for more than 35 years.
With an emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Harry Pascal offers an entire array of dental services using the most modern techniques and instruments, including the use of Digital Radiographs and the Dental Laser. He was one of the first dentists to entirely discontinue the use of silver/mercury fillings. Dr. Pascal has always been dedicated to following the strictest safety and sterilization techniques for his patients. This became evident when a producer for a study conducted by 60 Minutes, on Dental Sterilization, was so impressed with Dr. Harry Pascal that she brought her own mother in for dental care.
To ensure the safety and success of the placement of dental implants, Stuyvesant Dental has a periodontal specialist on staff. Sometimes it is necessary to correct the position of teeth before implant placement. Dr. Pascal is trained and certified in the use of Invisalign. Both cosmetic enhancements and dental health benefits are achieved using this advanced orthodontic technique.
Using his diverse knowledge of Full-Mouth Reconstruction, Dr. Pascal turns the simplest or the most difficult cases into beautiful, healthy, natural-looking smiles. Often, these Extreme Makeovers can be accomplished quickly, with great outcomes, in a single visit.
