The History and Philosophy of our Practice
Dr. Charles Pincus, the father of Esthetic Dentistry and the first president of the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, founded this Practice. Dr. Pincus first developed "Hollywood Laminates" (the predecessors to porcelain veneers) for the motion picture industry elite. His patients included Shirley Temple, Bob Hope, Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Stanwyck, Fred Astaire, James Dean, Walt Disney and Judy Garland to name a few. In 1986 he passed the torch to Dr. Fugier, his partner, friend, and talented pupil, who continues to provide superlative Esthetic dentistry to both Royalty and Celebrities. We prefer to keep our patient list strictly confidential, but all our patients seek the finest quality and ultimate natural beauty. Dr. Fugier attributes his "Esthetic Eye" in part, to the daily exposure of his youth to beauty in art of all forms that his French culture provides. He feels his technical expertise is largely due to the quality of his training by his world-renowned predecessors.
Our dental practice is designed to give you exclusive personalized services. Our goal is to achieve the utmost in your dental health and beauty, in the most comfortable possible manner. We strive for excellence in dentistry and artistry with state-of-the-art technology. Our office offers a luxurious spa feeling with an emphasis on total relaxation. We genuinely care about our patients and their total health, not just their teeth. We believe the mouth is the most important organ of your body, as it enables mastication, digestion, elimination, speech, and of course, those pearly whites to "Smile." The mouth is where it all starts, it is important to your entire body. This is why we are involved with Biological Dentistry.
