Jeremy Kay, D.M.D., is truly an architect of dentistry. With his years of experience in prosthodontics, he has become a leader in complex, high-end restorative, cosmetic, and implant dentistry. Dr. Kay performs complete Smile Makeovers through the advanced placement and development of dental implants, in-office whitening systems, and comprehensive periodontal care for optimal gum health.
Dr. Kay specializes in complex cases requiring a level of care and expertise beyond the limitations of general dentistry. Many of his patients are referred by medical and dental specialists, who recommend Dr. Kay for his enhanced cosmetic and reconstructive services.
By focusing his energy and passion on the highest echelon of restorative dentistry, Dr. Kay is able to provide outstanding aesthetic and functional results in the most challenging dental situations. “Because what we do addresses both aesthetics and function, our scope of service goes way beyond the immediate dental needs of our patients,” says Dr. Kay. “We approach our work from a big-picture perspective, integrating academic, psychological, and philosophical disciplines to achieve maximum results.”
Dr. Kay maintains a reputation for excellent results by following the basic principles of proper planning and team synergy. As a smile architect, he surveys each patient’s dental “properties” and designs reconstructive blueprints, planning every detail of the treatment based on his artistic vision. Dr. Kay then works with his carefully assembled dental team, including in-house laboratory technicians, to realize this vision. Dr. Kay credits his team approach for the success his practice has earned over the past two decades.
At the helm of his highly skilled team is the relationship with master dental technicians and ceramists who have trained under the finest progressive specialists in Belgium, Romania, and Germany. “Our on- laboratory is of great benefit to our patients,” Dr. Kay explains. “This makes it possible for me to maintain total control of the development of the prosthetics I use, as well as to protect quality and consistency. Equally important – I can respond instantly to patients’ needs.”
To further concentrate on his patients’ needs, Dr. Kay keeps his patient base at a lower level than most dental offices. It is necessary to be somewhat selective when treating those with complicated needs because each treatment requires the careful formulation of a precise and thorough treatment plan. Dr. Kay places great stress on developing the best treatment plan possible, just as an architect spends much of his time developing a blueprint.
In your first meeting with Dr. Kay, you will notice his high level of energy and passion for his craft. The first time you look in the mirror and see your new, beautiful smile, we guarantee you will share his enthusiasm. To schedule a consultation with Dr. William Kay, contact us today.
