Manhattan General Dentist


General dentistry promotes both oral health and whole body wellness. You can avoid an extensive range of problems (like toothache, sour breath, and high blood pressure) when you participate in regular general dentistry.

At Parsons Smile Center, we are dedicated to fabulous patient care. We complete most all procedures right here without referring patients to other offices. We will never rush you through your time with Dr. Salha—when he is with you, you receive 100% of his focus!

Manhattan dentist Dr. Salha has been named America’s top dentist since 2003 by the Consumers Research Council of America. You can trust our dentist and team to provide you with top-notch general dentistry here in the Manhattan area.

The general dentistry services we provide are listed below.


Dr. Salha recommends that you see us every six months for a teeth cleaning and exam. These preventative care actions are pivotal to warding off tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and toothache. Taking these simple steps can also protect you from the bodily risks of gum disease, like heart disease and diabetes.


Oral cancer can affect various parts of the mouth and throat. Unfortunately, when these cancers are not identified early, they can advance to become life-threatening. At Parsons Smile Center, our Manhattan dentist wants to ensure your safety by providing you with regular oral cancer screenings.

“Great care and customer service, everything is explained thoroughly and understanding of service is always given in the most caring way. The greatest dental care.”

The silver, mercury-filled dental fillings of the past can now be replaced with a healthier and more attractive alternative. Our mercury-free dental fillings allow light to reflect off the teeth, generating a natural appearance. They reduce the risk of toxicity and will last for years and years.


Even if you brush and floss regularly at home, you need your dental professionals to remove the hardened bacteria from those hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. A regular teeth cleaning will keep your teeth healthy and your breath fresh. During a teeth cleaning, our professionals will also polish the teeth to protect you from future bacteria buildup.


Sealants can protect patients, especially young ones, against tooth decay and cavities. Sealants will smooth out the grooves in the back teeth and eliminate those tricky spaces where bacteria usually hides.



We would love to work with you on your journey to ultimate overall health. Whatever your needs may be, we are confident that we can help you at Parsons Smile Center. Contact us today or give us a call at (212) 223-5100 to schedule your general dentistry appointment in Manhattan!
