Four porcelain veneers to close gaps and improve tooth proportions. Last photo shows process from start, to temp veneers, and final veneers. Porcelain artistry from @gil_frontierdental 🙌
Dr. Nguyen’s comments on this case: “I find it very satisfying to be able to project the patient’s desires into the final cosmetic outcome, much like a commissioned painting on canvas. This patient is a 5’ tall woman who is leader in a male-dominated industry, and she has long wanted more prominent teeth, proportional to her personality. We placed porcelain veneers on four upper front teeth, and I think the result is not only beautiful and balanced, but also cleanly integrated into the long term health of her surrounding gums and teeth.”
I’m proud to introduce and highlight our two superstar associate dentists: Drs. Elena Cho and Manuela Krahn.
Born and raised in Germany (and fluent in German and Spanish), Dr. Krahn joined our practice in July 2020. After moving to the United States, she completed her undergraduate studies at Florida International University, where she graduated with high honors. She went on to earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree (DMD) from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, she completed her general practice residency at Jacobi Medical Center and entered private practice in New York City, the city she calls home. Dr. Khran is experienced in performing cosmetic dentistry (ceramic veneers and crowns), restorative treatment, implant dentistry and emergency dental care (root canal treatments and extractions). Her hobbies include Citibiking, cooking, running in Central Park, and trying out new restaurants in the city.
Dr. Cho joined our office in October 2021. A native of Seoul, Korea, Dr. Cho graduated Summa Cum Laude from UCLA, where she performed oral cancer research and was honored with the Merck Index Award by the Biochemistry Department. She went on to attend Harvard University School of Dental Medicine for her DMD degree. With great enthusiasm for advanced education, she has pursued extensive training in digital, cosmetic, and implant dentistry, in addition to Invisalign clear aligner therapy. She achieved fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in 2021. In her spare time, Dr. Cho enjoys traveling, doing Pilates, playing with her teacup Yorkie, and exploring new restaurants.

Behind the scenes: Basic Life Support/CPR skills training day last summer. A team that trains together stays together!
Successful and stable single-tooth implant restorations require meticulous planning. We aim to create a harmonious environment to receive the lifelike final crown.
This was a very gratifying case. Replaced one crown and inserted a 3-unit implant supported bridge to restore this lovely patient’s entire upper left side dentition. Beauty and function achieved in the same stroke.
Happy Holidays from your QBP Dental Care crew (& Toby)! Enjoy your family together time this week, whether in-person or remotely ❤️
Even if you can’t be in the same room with your loved ones this December, taking the time to say “I love you” and “I’m thinking about you” will always be a special treasure to the dear friends, family, and neighbors in your life.
In that spirit, please know that we at Queensboro Plaza Dental Care stand ready to serve in your hour of dental need. We appreciate your loyalty and your confidence in our care. Limited office hours available next week (open Dec 28-30).
Recent case wrapped up that accomplished the goal of widening this patient’s smile. Smile expansion is an effective way to resolve crowding, improve appearance, and create stable function. The initial teeth arches were arranged in an “omega”♎️ form but we expanded them into more stable “U” shapes in about 6 months. No more dark corners when this patient smiles. 😁 Next step: retainers for lifetime protection of this patient’s new smile!
Last week, Dr. Nguyen spoke to a room full of dental colleagues about his experience using the and how it has elevated patient care at our office. Just like we can scarcely imagine using a floppy disc or even a CD at this point to store and transmit files, in dentistry we are transitioning away from traditional silicone impressions towards digital impressions and 3D printing to make records your teeth and create restorations.
At your next visit, ask us about having your complimentary digital scan done - it’s radiation-free and gets you be visual access to your mouth in a whole new dimension. 🦷📸
Belated post highlighting our team bbq a few weekends ago. Dr. Nguyen and office manager, Fate, hosted our team of 9 at their house. Featured in the festivities were some spirited youtube karaoke, frisbee and soccer (humans vs. Toby 🐶), and Dr. Nguyen’s grilled za’atar chicken with garlic yogurt sauce!
This case highlight shows possibilities of same-day teeth replacement using four angled implants and computer guided surgery. 👌🏼The upper and lower teeth are mismatched, broken, and non-restorable. The top x-ray shows the outcome after we extracted all 6 upper teeth, inserted four implants, and retrofitted the same-day acrylic provisional bridge. After six months of healing (implant osseointegration), we will convert the provisional bridge to the final porcelain teeth. 🦷🎊 Lower teeth are planned for similar treatment in a separate appointment.
This lovely patient was very happy to have “Hollywood” teeth again. 💕
Watermelon popsicles are a refreshing summer treat that's also tooth-friendly!
Happy Mother’s Day to my dear mom, @knguyen860 . Thank you for sharing your love as a Mother throughout your life. Giving birth, feeding us, and raising us is really a miracle we don't take for granted ❤️
Happy Mother’s Day also to my employees and mothers - Alex, Patricia, and Cathy, and to all the amazing Mothers out there, in every sense of the word!
Running into the weekend like... 🐾
Transformative dental journey for a very special patient. ❤️
We are excited to unveil these photos of a full-mouth dental implant rehabilitation case in progress. Upper jaw has been restored with a full arch implant-retained ceramic bridge. Lower jaw implant crowns will be inserted next month to replace missing back teeth.👌🏼

P.S. Did you know that April 4-10 is Dental Hygienist Appreciation Week? Shout-out to our all-star Hygienists @ssheritaa and @ricardocarvalhonyc (and our former hygienist @whitneygivans — miss you!). We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking care of our patients with gentle hands and impassioned hygiene coaching.
According to the American Cancer Society, about 54,010 people will get oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer this year. Self examinations and routine visits to the dentist are key to early detection.
💐 Spring has sprung and sunny days have begun. ☀
One of our favorite implant cases... started shortly before the start of the 2020 pandemic and wrapped up last week.
The patient’s upper left bridge was failing at the more forward supporting tooth, so Dr. Nguyen sectioned the bridge, extracted in stages, used a screw retained provisional to shape the gums, and eventually restored two implants with a new bridge on custom titanium abutments. The patient is ecstatic to regain form, function and appearance.
We are grateful to have had several of our staff and our two doctors vaccinated (second dose) this week. 🙏🏼We took these photos to commemorate the occasion. It’s a good feeling knowing our team can feel safer while providing essential healthcare.💪🏼❤️

Some glimpses of Times Square and Midtown Manhattan today. This area is normally packed to the brim with people during the Holiday season, and especially on New Year’s Eve. Here’s to a 2021 that will bring an end to the COVID-19 Pandemic and bring our great city alive again. We miss the energy and liveliness of NYC! The crowds milling around bright Broadway marquees; the fans in sports jerseys heading out to live games at Citi Field, Yankee Stadium, MSG, Barclays; the heightening of the pulse when you hustle through the turnstile to catch your train; meeting with friends and “dining-in” at a packed restaurant/bar, struggling to hear your conversation above the din around you. Turns out you don’t know how much you love some things until you’re forced to miss them.
