We are pleased to announce that we are now permitted to provide all dental procedures and services. Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months. Smile Center is committed to the safety of our patients and our team. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs. We thank you for your understanding during this changing time.

We follow recommendations and guidelines made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This allows us to make sure that our infection control procedures are up-to-date and enables us to provide the safest environment for our patients and our team.

Smile Center has implemented additional safety precautions to help protect our patients and staff. We will be scheduling appointments in a manner that promotes social distancing and allows for adequate time for us to disinfect all areas of use in between appointments.

Upon arrival at our office,
  • Call us before entering the building to let us know you have arrived. We will call or text you once the office is ready for you to enter.
  • We ask that patients enter the office unaccompanied.
  • A member of our team will meet you at the door to take your temperature with a contactless thermometer.
  • Every person entering the office is expected to wear a face covering and will be asked to sanitize their hands immediately upon entry.
  • A COVID-19 questionnaire will be reviewed with you.

Clear plastic screens (sneeze guards) have been installed at the front desk to minimize exposure to airborne pathogens. Air exchange devices and new suction systems have been obtained and are being used to ensure the safety of patients and team.

Our doctors and staff will be wearing all of the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE).

Thank you for being part of our family dental practice. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back.

Quality dental care from Buffalo, New York dentist Dr. Kent

At the Smile Center, we want our patients to enjoy quality, caring dentistry in Buffalo, New York. Dr. Kent, our practice dentist, is committed to helping his patients achieve and maintain a beautiful smile. His practice provides a caring, gentle, and compassionate environment where patients can obtain their dental treatments with dignity. With sedation dentistry available, he also “caters to cowards!” Patients can have oral conscious sedation or IV sedation to enjoy a comfortable, positive visit to the dental practice, and can get the dental care they need and desire.

The Smile Center offers a wide variety of dental treatments, from general dentistry procedures to cosmetic services, including:

Immediate Dentures

Patients can enjoy the benefits of same day dentures at their Buffalo, New York dentist. We offer high quality healing dentures that patients can wear immediately after their extractions until the fabrication of their permanent dentures.

Sedation Dentistry

Patients who are fearful of visiting the dental office can relax with sedation methods such as oral conscious sedation and IV sedation. We also offer laughing gas for patients with mild anxieties.

Dental Implants

Restoring a smile after tooth loss is important for a variety of reasons, and in many cases, Dr. Kent will recommend dental implants. Dental implants are placed into the jawbone to provide strong, long-lasting restorations.

Invisalign Orthodontics

Patients who want to straighten their teeth but want to avoid the unattractive appearance of traditional orthodontics will enjoy the benefits that Invisalign orthodontics can provide. This clear alternative to traditional braces can help both teenagers and adults improve their smiles.

Porcelain Veneers

An entire smile can be made over with porcelain veneers, and patients can enjoy a brand new smile quickly and easily. These restorations are extremely thin and are bonded to the natural teeth to change the appearance, shape, and color. Veneers are versatile restorations used to make subtle or drastic changes to a patient’s smile.

Teeth Whitening

Sometimes, all a patient needs to make a positive change to his or her smile is a simple teeth whitening treatment. Bleaching the teeth is a safe and effective way to brighten one’s smile, and is an affordable alternative to over-the-counter methods that may not provide the desired results.
