Dr. Ira Koeppel
A cosmetic dentist on Long Island and Director of the Koeppel Dental Group – A Dental365 Company, Dr. Koeppel loves transforming the power of modern cosmetic dentistry and giving his patients an inner and outer glow. “The smile is the gateway to your soul”. He can see it in his patient’s eyes! His practice strives at exceeding patient expectations. Dr. Koeppel’s motto is “We obsess so you don’t have to.”
A graduate of Georgetown University School of Dentistry, the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies, Pac Live (Pacific Aesthetic Continuum) and the Eastman Dental Center’s Advanced General Dentistry Training Program, Dr. Ira Koeppel brings his expansive knowledge, skill, care and judgement to cosmetic, implant and full arch reconstructive dentistry. Highly regarded by his peers, Dr. Koeppel was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his “Outstanding Leadership Qualities” from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (New York Chapter). He served as President of this organization in 2000. Dr. Koeppel was also presented with the “Everyday Hero 2006” given by LI Business News for his dedication to patient care and nominated by patients themselves.
With his practice based in the historic village of East Setauket, New York, on Long Island’s North Shore, Dr. Koeppel is more than just a dentist. His overriding goal, apart from ensuring healthy teeth and gums for his patients, is to bring a smile to each patient both literally and figuratively. Whether it be a Hybridge smile, All on 4, implant reconstruction, full mouth reconstruction, or a cosmetic porcelain veneer makeover, his goal is to enhance that patient’s life and the way they feel about themselves. For anyone visiting Dr. Koeppel’s relaxed, impeccably furnished office, “I love my smile” is the ultimate objective and the motto he and his staff live by.
As a founding member of both the International Medical Spa and International Dental Spa Associations, Dr. Koeppel artfully combines modern technology with relaxation techniques for all his treatments. The cozy, modern office environment is further enhanced by the perennial aroma of cinnamon raisin bread which is baked daily on premises and offered as a gift to patients.
Continually challenging himself in learning new methods and therapies for enhancing the quality of life for his patients, Dr. Koeppel is board certified in dental sleep medicine. It is here that he treats sleep and breathing disorders such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. After a diagnosis from a sleep physician, the patient is then referred to Dr. Koeppel for the fabrication of a custom oral appliance, similar to that of an athletic mouth guard which allows free, uninterrupted flow of air so that proper sleep is restored.
Dr. Koeppel has given lectures to dentists and other professional groups on various subjects, such as dental sleep medicine, porcelain veneers, full mouth reconstruction, and how to develop better relationships with patients.
