Ilya lIpkIn, DDS • OrthOdOntics
“In orthodontics, the right diagnosis is the key to success,” says Dr. Ilya Lipkin. With his thorough approach, specialized training and state-of-the-art technology, he provides the highest-quality care to all patients, including those who
were misdiagnosed or mistreated elsewhere. “We do it right the first time, or we don’t do it at all,” he says.
This board-certified orthodontist is one of few to employ 3-D imaging and customized SureSmile® 3-D treatment
planning to achieve a life-changing smile for every patient. “SureSmile is a fascinating advancement in orthodontic
care,” says Lipkin, who notes that patients benefit from better results in significantly less time. Invisalign® and lingual
(behind the teeth) braces are also part of his expertise.
After earning his dental degree and completing his orthodontic residency at NYU, Lipkin spent two additional years
studying the relationship between teeth and jaw joints, something missing in traditional orthodontic education. That
relationship is critical to long-term stability and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) health. This approach to care is known
as the Roth-Williams philosophy (similar to Dawson and Pankey teachings for general dentists) and includes clearly
defined goals and individualized treatment.
Patients of all ages receive a friendly welcome at this office. Nearly half of Lipkin’s patients are adults who have
discovered that today’s braces are faster and more comfortable than ever before. His patient roster includes actors,
fellow dentists and their families, and even a few beauty pageant winners. Lipkin says, “I love what I do, because I
have a 100 percent cure rate—every patient leaves here with a healthy and beautiful smile!”
