Doctors Guillermo Torres and his wife Vicky recently moved their Tarrytown office to the Medical Building at 200 South Broadway in the Village. The move gave them more space and a great opportunity to incorporate the latest medical technology into their practices of General Dentistry, Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry. Both Dr.
L. to R. Sarah Gonzalez Treatment Coordinator, Joanna Porco Dental Assistant, Drs. Vicky and Guillermo Torres.
Torres and his wife, known to her patients as Dr. Vicky, started their practice in 1999 after advanced training at the University of Rochester and Ohio State University, respectively. Dr. Vicky turned to General Dentistry while her husband gravitated to more complex problems that required reconstruction, implants, dentures and host of other specific dental needs.
"All of our patients, whether they need general dentistry or other services, receive a complete evaluation when they first visit us. We sit down with them and offer our experienced advice about what would work best for them," Dr. Vicky said. "We accept all patients that need either dental preventative care or require more complex and specific treatments," said Dr. Guillermo Torres.
Their office at 200 South Broadway, Suite 208 in Tarrytown is meticulously kept, and after a warm greeting from Treatment Coordinator Sarah Gonzalez, one’s first impression turns to the computerized methods used for patient folders along with the digital X-rays that are immediately shown on a flat screen monitor for both patient and dentist viewing. "We spend time with our patients and answer any questions they have. That helps them to be confident, relaxed and allows us to do our job," Ms. Gonzalez said.
Prosthodontics is a restorative specialty in dentistry. It deals with the replacement of missing teeth and oral structures. It also pertains to artificial devices and the design of dentures, crowns, bridges, implants and cosmetic reconstruction. It is very detailed with regards to planning and treatment. "I am always able to offer my patients options that will best suit them. I take the necessary time from the start to explain these options so that our patients make informed decisions. That is very important. Our patients have a voice in their own treatment," Guillermo Torres said.
In keeping with patients special needs,Torres & Torres Dentistry has expanded office hours which include evening and Saturday appointments. They also offer emergency care and make every effort to see their patients within the same day a call is placed to them. Recall visits are standard with reminders sent to patients for check-ups and cleaning.
Regarding Insurance claims, both dentists work with patients to maximize their benefits.
Included in their pre-treatment estimate is a detailed list of all costs, and the office submits all the necessary insurance papers for the patient. General dentistry fees are reasonable and payments by many insurance plans are considered as partial or full-payment. Fees for specialized prosthodontic services are agreed upon by both dentist and patient based on the complexity of the problem. Payment plans are also available to help patients receive the treatment they need.
Whether it is preventive care and general dentistry or more advanced restorative, reconstructive, cosmetic, surgical or geriatric dentistry, both Vicky and Guillermo Torres want people to know that they are there to help. Their professional training and concern for the people they treat is grounded in a belief. That belief is to offer the kind of care that they would want for themselves and their own family.
