Brasseler's Dental Appreciation Month - Celebrating YOU

It’s Time To Thank A Dentist

This month, we're celebrating our most valuable asset: the dental professional.

Dental professionals play an important part in our overall health and well-being. After all, nothing is more charming than a bright smile. So, instead of only celebrating on National Dental Appreciation Day, we're going to celebrate for the entire month!

Throughout March, meet our 2020 honorees, learn about the instruments that make them better practitioners, and why they chose dentistry. Plus, there may be a few specials along the way. After all, what kind of celebration would this be without a surprise or two?

To read more about our 2020 honorees, scroll through the page or simply click on one of their thumbnails below!

Allison Blatt, DMD

College Street Dentistry | Toronto, ON

Meet Allison Blatt, DMD, Brasseler Dental Appreciation Month
"BC Sealer and the XP-3D shaper and finisher have raised my confidence level in endodontics - that each root canal has been cleaned, shaped and obturated in the most efficient and proper way."
   

WHY DENTISTRY...
My dad, Ralph, is a general dentist and so is my twin sister, Robyn. Robyn and I grew up in a household where our father worked very hard in dentistry due to the fact that he simply loved it. And he still loves it; he continues to practice general dentistry after 60 years in the profession. I guess it was always assumed that Robyn and I would follow in his footsteps!

A FUN FACT...
I am a true Toronto sports fan!!! Hockey is my most favourite, but we definitely have an exciting basketball team here. Cheers to the Blue Jays as well!

WHY BRASSELER...
Brasseler stands behind their products. They are of great quality, and they are well priced. I am going to emphasize two outstanding endodontic products: BC Sealer and the XP-3D shapers. They have raised my confidence level in endodontics - that each root canal has been cleaned/shaped and obturated in the most efficient and proper way.  

ABOUT DR. BLATT...
Toronto, Canada native and resident, and a 1997 graduate of the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. After graduation, Allison remained in Louisville for an additional year, where she completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at the dental school in 1998. After the residency, she returned home to Toronto to practice general dentistry and has been doing so ever since.

Pinhas Adar, MDT, CDT

Adar Dental Laboratory | Atlanta, GA  

"We have been collaborating with Brasseler, one of the leaders in the development of rotary products, for the past 35 years. The Brasseler team is amazing, always listening and adapting to the ever-changing dental landscape."
   

WHY DENTISTRY...
I arrived in the United States at the age of 22, with one bag, $300, a handful of English words, and not knowing anyone. I had a burning desire to make a difference in the world by becoming the best at my dental skills and, in return, help others do the same. A lifelong student of learning how the “greats” have become so, inspired me to teach my passion to others around the world, by combining the skills and other strategies that I found worked in my own life, to help others believe in themselves and accomplish greatness.

A FUN FACT...
I could not speak English when I arrived in the US, and never attended school to learn but rather learned from watching TV and listening to the radio. I then went on to win an international speaking contest!

Gregory Wu, DMD

Emerson Dental (two locations  Bedford and Westford)  

Meet Gregory Wu, DMD, Brasseler Dental Appreciation Month
"Brasseler worked with us to create different color bur blocks, so in the office each color block correlates to a different procedure. It’s great because our practice is very busy and it keeps the burs we use organized."
   

WHY DENTISTRY...
I found it to be a great fit for everything I wanted to do- Work with people, my hands, and technology. It’s been a great journey that allows me to create smiles with everything I do (both figuratively and literally) so that everyone around me can enjoy their journey through life!

A FUN FACT...
I’m an avid Star Wars and comic book fan. A lot of equipment in my office has names like R2D2, Optimus Prime, and Jarvis (from Iron Man).

WHY BRASSELER...
I continue to choose Brasseler because of their customer service and commitment to integrity & quality. The organization of products like the bur blocks help make my life easier!

ABOUT DR. WU...
Dr. Wu grew up in Sudbury, Massachusetts. He is the oldest of 3 children and his family is originally from Taiwan. He currently resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts with his wife Mary-June and their twin six-year-old girls.  

He received his Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.

Dr. Wu's favorite part of being a dentist is meeting new people. Variety is the spice of life, and he truly enjoys getting to know the patients he treats and the people he encounters in this business.

Michael A. Kubiniec, DDS

Solo General Dentistry Practice | Batavia, NY

"All Brasseler burs and diamonds are top quality and have never let me down. I have used only Brasseler burs since around 2005, so I know what I’m talking about! My 10+ year old electric handpieces have never failed. That saves me money and headaches."
   

WHY DENTISTRY...
I became a dentist for regular reasons: I like to make a difference in people’s lives by working with my hands and solving complex problems. I watched my Dad do it, and I look forward to when my son joins me. I love it when I apply my skills, and Brasseler’s Endosequence system helps me efficiently treat a patient’s “root canal problem” and have them be pleasantly surprised that the procedure is so quick and painless.

A FUN FACT...
I’m nearly 60 years old and I still play video games online with my buddies from around the world. There's more of us than you would think...

David Kaplan, DMD

David Kaplan, DMD | Scotia NY

Meet David Kaplan, DMD , Brasseler Dental Appreciation Month
"When I have a Brasseler product in my hand, I am able to deliver predictable, high-quality dentistry. The easier it is to deliver quality, the less stressful it is for a dentist. After all, who wants to be a high-quality stressed out dentist?"
   

WHY DENTISTRY...
When I was growing up my uncle, Isadore Goldsmith DDS, was one of the neatest persons I knew!  Although his one chair Brooklyn dental office in the late 1950s was certainly different than a trip to my office now, none the less he was modern for the time. He also practiced at Brooklyn Hospital, contributing to one of the first dental residency programs in the country. When I was about 9 years old I stopped a baseball bat with my front teeth, and fortunately, my Uncle Izzy knew how to practice emergency dental medicine before it was invented, and he saved my front teeth. Needless to say, he was always a role model for me to follow.

A FUN FACT...
I'm an experienced downhill skier and cross country skier. Last year I took up skate skiing. It's a very different sport from either downhill or classic cross country with its own learning curve. You will be happy to know that I advanced from extremely klutzy to just klutzy. But that's the point. I am learning by taking lessons and working with a mentor. That's how we advance professionally, in sports and in avocations.

WHY BRASSELER...
Sitting chairside you always want quality; we have to deliver that every day to our patients. When I have a Brasseler product in my hand, I am able to deliver predictable, high-quality dentistry. The easier it is to deliver quality, the less stressful it is for a dentist. After all, who wants to be a high-quality stressed out dentist?

ABOUT DR. KAPLAN...
Hi, it's David Kaplan, DMD AKA Dr. K or Dr. Dave. I graduated SUNY New Paltz in 1973 and the University of Pennsylvania in 1977.  I practiced in Boston for a year before moving to Albany where I worked as an associate for two years.

I purchased my own practice located in Scotia, New York from Al Rasso DDS in let's say 1981. It was a small, two chair office but it now has two chairs in sunny rooms with beautiful bay windows with a separate area containing two hygiene treatment rooms.

Jose-Luis Ruiz, DDS

"I have great respect for a company which for decades has served the dental community with integrity and quality, so when I buy Brasseler, I feel confident I am getting good products."
   

WHY DENTISTRY...
At the time when I was making a decision on my professional future, I saw a dentist in Mexico City perform a direct bonding on my father, lengthening his six front teeth and it was mind-blowing! I couldn't believe how much better he looked, I was sold.

A FUN FACT...
Dr. Ruiz has made numerous television appearances highlighting his Esthetic Dental makeovers, including NBC Channel 4 News, ABC’s News, Good Morning America & Vista La, VH1 and Channel 52’s Telemundo and 34 Univision.
