To Your Health: Dr. Max Zaslavsky Talks Popular Dental Services, New Office

Dr. Max Zaslavsky

Dr. Max Zaslavsky’s dental practice is a beacon of comprehensive dental care in Wilton Manors, Oakland Park, Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Coconut Creek. Renowned for their commitment to empathetic and inclusive care, they cater to a diverse range of clients, ensuring everyone in these vibrant areas receives the highest standard of dental service. Their practice takes pride in being deeply integrated into the local communities. From family dentistry in Oakland Park to cosmetic treatments in Wilton Manors, emergency dental services in Pompano Beach, or general dentistry in Fort Lauderdale, they are here for every dental need.

Full disclosure, Dr. Max and his beautiful wife Lauren, are personal friends of mine. The way we became friends was way over a decade ago when I sat down to interview him for the first time. We had so much in common we bonded, and the rest is history. Therefore, it was really a pleasure to go to Max’s office, and chat with my friend. 

You moved locations and completely remodeled. When did you move and how has it been?  

We moved October of 2022, as I wanted to create an office that fit my personality and what I was trying to aim for all these years. I also wanted to be closer to the community of Wilton Manors that has been so supportive of us over the last 15+ years. I found this opportunity in the growing area of Oakland Park, and I jumped on it. 

Tell me about your staff. 

We have the most caring hygienists in the tri-county region. Ben has been with us since the move. With covid, and the move, I felt this was the time to make some staff changes. Ben was one of the first moves I made in hiring him to add to the office. He brings his big heart and laugh to the office. Hardly ever in a bad mood, I think the biggest asset has been bringing him on board.

Jose is our part time hygienist who was a dentist in Peru and brings those added skills to the practice. Unfortunately, we will soon be losing him, as he plans to move forward with becoming a dentist in this country. Looking at the forest through the trees, I hope to one day bring him back not as a hygienist, but rather as a future colleague who will work with us in the office.

Katina and Kasi have collectively been in the dental field for 30 years. Katina has been with me now for 7 years, and Kasi I have known for 10. When she left her former position, it was an easy decision to offer her a position. Pierre, our office manager, I have also known for 10 years. I met him through CrossFit some years ago. Fast forward, he transitioned from his former field into dental. Susie (front desk) has also been in the dental field for quite a long time. She hails from Jacksonville, and I was so glad when she came in for the interview, we knew she was the right fit.

How do you and your staff give great customer service to your clients?

I would like to think we are really on top of things. We built this new office for our patients with our patients in mind. We have had local artists begin to paint the rooms (even the bathroom) to make this office feel less robotic and with more soul.  

What do you think it is about your practice that sets itself apart from other dentists in the area?

We really want to make sure our patients are happy every step of the way. We also make every attempt to be punctual with our patients. We understand patients do not exactly like being at the dentist, and they have to get to work. We try to do good work as efficiently as possible.

What services do you offer?

Botox, fillers, general dentistry (fillings, crowns, extractions), cosmetics (veneers, porcelain crowns, metal free restorations). We also offer nitrous sedation as well as oral sedation.

Tooth whitening is very popular, tell me about the different options?

We have 3 options. The first is a 10-day disposable kit, which is like dental strips, but more of a dental quality. The second is an in-office 1 hour whitening treatment, and the third option, which gets the best results, is a combination of the first two. This is where you do 1 hour of whitening, and then do 5 take home kits followed by another 1 hour of whitening and then another 5 take home kits. This option is for clients who have deep stains. 

As a dentist, what is your goal in your practice?

I want patients to understand that the mouth is the first entrance to health.  We want to keep your teeth healthy, as without a healthy mouth you will not have a healthy body. Missing teeth is not healthy. “Just pulling it out,” is not ok. You are not a Mr. Potato Head. You are a human being. Dentures should not be a thing anymore. 

Do you take insurance?

Yes, we take most PPO’s. We also have 3 options for in-house insurance depending on the patient’s needs. They all offer discounts, and the payments start as low as $325 for the year. 

Do you take walk ins or do you need to make an appointment?

An appointment is preferred, but if you come in with pain we will see you. I have NEVER said no to a patient in an emergency.

What does the future hold?

We created an office to serve the community of Oakland Park and Wilton Manors. It was made for the community around us and for the community that’s coming. We are currently looking to expand our staff to help with the growing community.
