Here’s something that should bring a smile to all of us — a new, state of the art dental facility has come to our community.
The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) has opened a primary and specialty health and dental care center at 2244 Church Avenue between Bedford and Flatbush Avenues. In addition to dentistry, the hospital’s new, spacious Flatbush location offers primary care services, podiatry, gynecology, and comprehensive travel medicine services including HIV and Hepatitis C care for the entire community.
This dental care offers Flatbush residents “complete cutting-edge primary care dentistry,” Dr. Harry Dym, TBHC’s Chair of Dentistry told us.
The hospital’s long-term plan is to bring even more specialized medical care to our area. Future offerings at the Flatbush location could include ophthalmology, gastroenterology, cardiology, and dermatology services.
Community members in need of dentistry services are welcome to walk in and schedule an appointment or call (718) 826-5600. The Flatbush center is open Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 6pm. The facility can be reached by the B, Q, 2 and 5 subway lines, along with multiple bus lines.
Serving a Critical Need for Dentistry
The new Church Avenue Health Center and its dentistry service meet a definite need in the community, said Dr. Dym, who will be overseeing dental services at the facility with his colleague, Dr. Saad Aziz Butt. Both men received their medical training at TBHC.
The Center is “a state of the art dental center, and offers the latest and best dental care for patients,” Dr. Dym said proudly. It will have the “highest standards” in terms of dental sterilization, maintenance of electronic medical records, and digital radiography (imaging), he added.
The Brooklyn Hospital Center’s Church Avenue site will provide comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry, as well as children’s dentistry. A hygienist is also on staff. The range of services includes routine cleanings, teeth whitening, crown and bridge prosthetics as well as more complex dental procedures. All are welcome, as well as individuals with special needs, both physical and emotional.
If special oral surgical procedures or emergency care are necessary, individuals have the added benefit of 24/7 emergency care at TBHC’s main location at 121 Dekalb Avenue. Orthodontic care for community members is provided at the main hospital as well, but may eventually be offered at the Church Avenue Center, according to Dr. Dym.
“We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming and comfortable environment for everyone,” Dr. Dym said, “we look forward to seeing you soon.”
