Cosmetic dentist Harry Long has a little something extra to smile about: The New Jersey-based dentist received the prestigious Cosmetic Practice of the Year Award, awarded by the Levin Group.

I felt humbled to have won this award

Dentist Harry Long, DMD, received the prestigious 2004 Cosmetic Practice of the Year (CPOY) Award in February this year. Dr. Long received the award from Levin Group, a leading dental consulting firm providing innovative lifetime services to dentists. The award recognizes Dr. Long's excellence in cosmetic dentistry based on his practice philosophy, commitment, performance, leadership, smile design, use of advanced technologies and dedication to patient comfort and communication. He was honored for the award during a ceremony in Chicago.

"I felt humbled to have won this award," said Dr. Long, who maintains a Wayne, N.J., private practice that generates nearly 70 percent of its dentistry from cosmetic dentistry procedures. “It has encouraged me to continue my pursuit to give patients a more beautiful smile and help them feel better about themselves.”

Dr. Long's practice is more like a spa than a traditional dental office. Patients can enjoy a full array of satellite programming on flat-screen TVs in five treatment rooms, and each dental chair has a heated massage back for patient comfort. The practice also provides paraffin hand wax treatments, freshly baked cookies, coffee and cappuccino to patients.

Dr. Long, who is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, says he has always been interested in improving his practice to provide the finest in patient care and the latest technology.

"Advancements in modern dental care have made everything much easier and more comfortable for patients," said Dr. Long. "Now a person can have a dazzling smile much more easily; I feel fortunate to be able to help them achieve the appearance they've always wanted."
