Corbin Family Dental Arts
204-17 35th Avenue
The Corbin Family Dental Arts has been providing dental care to Bayside and Oyster Bay for over three generations.
In 1937, the year Dr. Samuel Corbin began his practice in Queens, the cost of a First Class Stamp was raised from 2 cents to 3 cents; Al Capone was sent to prison in Atlanta, Georgia; and the only option for lost or missing teeth was a small bridge or dentures. White fillings for cavities were not available and nitrous oxide — or laughing gas — and ether were the only anesthesia choices.
While family and cosmetic dentistry, and the world, have changed a great deal, doctors Richard and Bruce Corbin, who grew up in Bayside, say they are still committed to their neighbors and friends with the most up-to-date methods, high-tech equipment, pain-management and answers to any dental questions.
The Corbin Family Dental Arts offers Invisalign, cosmetic bonding and veneers to strengthen and beautify stained or discolored smiles, implants to restore missing or lost teeth permanently, and undetectable white fillings. The dentists are also licensed to administer Oral Conscious sedation that relieves anxiety and fatigue during dental procedures.
