Dr. Robert H. Turchin, D.M.D.
Dr. Turchin graduated at the top of his class from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He was elected to The National Dental Honor Society, Omitron Kappa Upsilon. Dr. Turchin completed course requirements in just 3 years and spent his senior year treating the more advanced cases in the dental clinic and auditing graduate level periodontal courses. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry from The State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton, New York where he was a resident advisor. Dr. Turchin states that at The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine: “I got more exposure and more training than the typical student coming out of Penn. Penn is already regarded as one of the top dental schools in the country, so on top of an excellent education I was able to get that much needed experience and exposure."
As your dental healthcare provider, Dr. Turchin wants you to be confident knowing that he has assembled a team of highly trained and skilled professionals. To give you the best possible service and results, Dr. Turchin and his staff are fully committed to continuing education and learning. They attend classes throughout the year to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state of the art dental care. Also, regularly reading dental journals and being a member of various professional dental associations helps Dr. Turchin to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for the dental profession. Dr. Turchin was selected as one of "America's Top Dentists" in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. He was also awarded the Patient FYI Award of Excellence in 2010.
Patient Education: “This is an important component of my practice. I talk about the connection between dental health and overall health while emphasizing the importance of regular visits to maintain dental health and prevent crisis situations. We want all our patients to know that the health of their bodies starts in the mouth. By emphasizing regular and preventative dental care we ensure our patients' the best oral health and overall health, along with reduced discomfort and costs."
Dr. Turchin states, “For our patients’ convenience, root canal surgery by Dr. Alperstein and periodontal surgery by Dr. Benedon can be performed in my office to offer a seamless quality to our treatment. We also have one full-time and several part-time hygienists."
Here in Dr. Turchin's office the goal is to help patients' keep their natural teeth for a lifetime! Endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy, along with the appropriate restoration, is a cost-effective way to save a tooth and it's usually less expensive than extraction and placement of a bridge or an implant. Many teeth that have undergone root canal treatment can last a lifetime. Our on-staff endodontist, Dr. Alperstein, can treat you right here in our office.
Periodontal disease, an infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth, is the number one cause of tooth loss. Periodontal disease affects nearly 75% of adults and if left untreated can leave to sore or bleeding gums, discomfort in the mouth, persistent bad breath and eventually, tooth loss. In many cases, gums can be restored to a healthy state and your natural teeth saved through periodontal gum therapy. Best of all, our on-staff periodontist, Dr. Benedon, can treat your condition right here in our office.
