Dr. Ted Filandrianos, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry

About

Creating beautiful smiles and solving dental problems that come with aging teeth are Dr. Filandrianos’ areas of expertise. “I have all of the specialties here in one office,” said Dr. Ted, as he is affectionately known. “Periodontics, endodontics, and neuromuscular dentistry/TMJ.” Whether it is misaligned bites, missing teeth, pain when eating, or even sleep apnea, his office is well-equipped to address any problem. Dr Ted and his team welcome difficult cases, we use a group of Doctors to come up with individualized treatment for our patients and use cosmetic computer imaging to help the patients visualize their finished treatment.

Dr. Ted and his surgical periodontists use 3D computer imaging to treat patients requiring cosmetic front tooth implants and crowns to more complex, full-mouth reconstruction. He invests in the most up-to-date dental technology and uses 3D Cone beam x-rays with the lowest level of radiation along with CEREC Milling machine equipment, allowing patients to receive ceramic crowns or veneers in just one visit.

The Most rewarding times in Dentistry is when you can change a persons smile and self confidence, patients become part of our family.

Affectionately known as "the Doctor’s Dentist," Dr. Ted treats many of his fellow Boston dentists, as well as physicians, nurses and their families at his Newton Centre dental office. Beyond his passion for dentistry, Dr. Ted is also an avid equestrian who competitively breeds and shows American Quarter Horses.

I wish there were a Yelp "location" category called "The Universe"...because Dr. Ted Filandrianos and the outstanding dental team in his Newton Centre office are the absolute BEST in the Universe.

I should know. I’ve had it all there...cleanings, fillings, root canals, extractions, bone grafts, implants, crowns...and every single treatment was performed impeccably...and as an added treat, with chair-side manners that make you feel relaxed, anxiety-free and...dare I write this about a dental experience?...well-loved! Dr. Ted and his colleagues will do everything they possibly can to save a tooth. And when they can’t, these brilliant, topnotch specialists will spring into action with their specialties...and save the day!

Dr. Ted has saved or restored so many of my teeth. He is the perfect blend of scientist and artist and his work is second to one. Add to that the warmest and most empathetic treatment I’ve ever received from a dentist (I used to dread the dentist!) and you have, as I said, the best dentist in the Universe. I also want to say that if you ever, ever need a dental implant, and I needed two...and a bone graft...right after an extraction of an infected tooth...and you are nervous about it...periodontist Dr. Jean-Marie Biebuyck aka "Dr. B" will remove that anxiety when he puts his talents to work. I could not believe it. He calmed me, he assured me that all was going well, he made me laugh a few times and, most importantly, he was visibly proud of how well each procedure turned out and put me at ease each step of the way.

And how about those dreaded root canal treatments? Not here. Just this past weekend, I was in horrific pain from an infected lateral incisor (top). Dr. Ted put me in touch with my now-hero Dr. Barry Goldberg, the endontist in his office - and Dr. Goldberg called me and put me on an antibiotic immediately (on a Sunday!) so that I’d be prepared for the next day’s root canal appointment. His chair-side manner is exceptional as well...and he put me at ease from "hello". I love how he explains what’s going on with the tooth while we look together at the x-rays - and the steps he is going to take. Even the way he administers Novocaine is a pleasant experience if you can believe that. I just went back yesterday so Dr. Goldberg could fill the canals and put a temporary filling - and everything went perfectly. No more pain - and he saved my porcelain crown...he was so careful when working on it! Next step - permanent filling with Dr. Ted.

I could go on and on (which I already have!) but I also need to mention that Zuzana is an outstanding dental hygienist who knows I can act like a 3-year old baby when it comes to the probing during a cleaning - and she makes it as painless as possible with her talent and skill.

And the dental assistants (I apologize for not remembering all the names from the past several years) are wonderful...topnotch...and a huge component of the overall positive experience I’ve had in Dr. Ted’s office...so I want to thank Marina and Wendy for being the best and taking good care of me.

Now...last but in no way least...I need to give a shout out to the very professional and vibrant Emily and Ali who are at the front desks - and who help ensure that Dr. Ted’s practice runs smoothly. Whether it’s a phone or in-person conversation, you will feel like the only patient in the practice...because of how Emily and Ali greet you, treat you, listen to you and reassure you that you are in the best dental office...in the Universe! Dr. Ted struck gold when he found them!

But don’t take my word for any of the above. Experience it yourself - and you’ll see what I mean!
