Why He Was Nominated

He’s a general dentist with considerable training in implant surgery and Invisalign treatment; he’s also a fellow at the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Favorite Aspect of Dentistry

Single-tooth implants. “It’s such a tremendous service for patients,” says Dr. Fink. “They lost a tooth, and now they’re getting it back without worrying about a bridge or dentures.”

Philosophy

“We’re all on the same page trying to do everything we can to help the patient. We understand that no one wants to come to the dentist’s office, and we do as much as we can to help people out.”

Exciting New Trend

“I like to be at the forefront, but I don’t want to be first in line for new technology because we want tried-and-tested technology,” Dr. Fink says. His practice has been all-digital since he opened nearly eight years ago; he also uses electric handpieces, which he lauds as an enormous time saver. Ditto his CAD/CAM machine for digital crowns. “We have a lot of patients who don’t have the ability to take off several hours during the day, and this solves that problem.”
