Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates Debuts Commercial

We are excited to announce that we have successfully launched our first television advertising campaign, which offers a closer look into what we do here at Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates. In this commercial a patient of Dr. Weiner spoke about her experience and how it has influenced her life. The commercial was directed by SK Media Group and was shot as an unscripted conversation where Tricia tells the viewers her story. She stated "When I came here I needed a lot of work done...I was 23 years old missing several teeth and that's hard for a college student." Tricia ended by telling our viewers "If it's affecting you as a person, do it, because it will change your life."

This commercial was very important to us because we wanted to show our community that our practice has really evolved so much over the past 20 years. There is a common misconception that dentistry is only cleaning teeth and filling cavities- it's so much more that that. The dentistry that we practice is innovative and can be life changing.

Our commercial is running on Cablevision (Optimum) on various channels including E!, TBS, Bravo, Nickelodeon, and Oxygen. We all hope you have an opportunity to check it out!

Below are some pictures of our stunning renovations. If you are in the area, please don't hesitate to stop by for a quick tour or call our office to schedule one. Hicksville: 516-960-5619




Brace Yourself for the Following Orthodontic Information

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child should be seen by an orthodontist at the first signs of orthodontic problems OR no later than age 7. Through research, it has been shown that interceptive (early) orthodontics is so incredible helpful! What that means is that Orthodontists can intercept a problem before it happens and gets more complicated. That is why it is very important to see an Orthodontist early! An Orthodontist can detect subtle problems with jaw growth and teeth that are first starting to come into the mouth, even when baby teeth are still present.


  • While you might think that your child's teeth look normal, an orthodontist can pick up a problem, before it is obvious.
  • Your child's bite may be okay at this time, but if there are sublet signs present, the bite might have to be monitored. The reason is that if a problem is brewing, your child will be treated at the appropriate time, resulting in fewer problems in the future.
  • We can correct harmful oral habits that might result in a complicated Orthodontic case if not treated early.
  • Some cases are very crowded, and if not treated early with expansion appliances, there might not be enough room for all of their permanent teeth.
  • Improve your child's self esteem if they are unhappy with how their teeth appear.
  • Guide permanent teeth into better positions as they erupt, reducing the amount of time your child will be in braces are indicated.
  • Improve the way their lips meet, thus protecting their upper front permanent teeth.
  • Timely treatment may prevent serious problems from developing resulting in less time in braces and the cases are not as complicated and much more stable.

Oral health care is a very important part to the overall health of your child. If you would like an orthodontic consultation or have any additional questions please feel free to call our office to schedule and appointment with one of our orthodontists
