one feel special,” says Lowenberg.
“We’re on a first-name basis with our pa-
tients; we don’t have the doctor aura.
We treat everyone like family.”
And they’ve built a practice of like-minded patients, many of whom are
so grateful for their new smiles that
they send the doctors flowers and gifts.
Given the anxiety people typically feel
about seeing a dentist, it’s nothing
short of remarkable.
“Dr. Lituchy changed my life,” says
patient Vanessa Bushkin, “because he
changed my self-esteem.” The 30-year-
old singer is used to having people stare at her
mouth, but she was never comfortable with her
smile until she got porcelain veneers. “I always get
double takes! People always look at my smile—
especially cute guys. Getting my teeth done had a
domino effect. Higher self-esteem made me a
happier person, and now I feel confident.”
The doctors are used to seeing these trans-
formations in their clients. New smiles have an
overwhelmingly positive effect on patients. One
patient lost 40 pounds after doing her teeth. She
told the doctors she looked so good on top, she
wanted the bottom to match. Another got en-
gaged soon after she had a smile makeover.
“We change people’s lives,” says Dr. Lowen-

look with new teeth,” adds Dr. Lituchy. “It’s very
rewarding when you see people become successful because of their new smile. I can’t wait to give
patients the mirror and see their reaction.”
Gorgeous Teeth in the Big Apple
Is there any advantage to traveling to
New York for a dental makeover?
Apparently, yes, as it’s become a global
destination for individuals seeking expert
cosmetic dentistry work from Marc G.
Lowenberg, DDS, and Gregg Lituchy, DDS.
One of the attractions that draws
out-of-towners to their practice is their
state-of-the-art cosmetic dental office,
which overlooks Central Park South.
Patients relaxing in the mahogany
waiting room have the option of having
a massage therapist do reflexology on
their feet, or using headsets to listen
to music or watch television programming or videos.
Drs. Lowenberg and Lituchy also
maintain a corporate apartment to house
out-of-town patients. The wait between
a patient’s first visit, when temporary
veneers are applied, and the second visit,
when the porcelain veneers are attached,

is a week. So the corporate apartment is
an attractive, comfortable alternative to
spending time in a hotel.
Of course, there are always the
cultural advantages of traveling to
Manhattan, a city brimming with world-class restaurants, museums, Broadway
shows and other top attractions.
