Our caring team of professionals includes Drs. Konikoff, Smith-Kayal, Rivera and Malik. Dr. Stephen Konikoff graduated from the MCV School of Dentistry in 1975 and opened his dental practice that same year. Dr. Konikoff lives in the Norfolk area with his family, and takes pride in providing quality dental care to the community he loves. Dr. Alisa Smith-Kayal earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Medical College of Virginia in 1991. With a focus on pediatric dentistry, Dr. Smith-Kayal believes strongly in the importance of preventive care for children. Before joining Konikoff Family Dentistry, Dr. Luis Rivera attended the Latin American School of Science and Technology School in Costa Rica, where he obtained his dental degree. He then went on to achieve a Certificate of Advanced Education of General Dentistry at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. His focus is on cosmetic and restorative treatments. Dr. Maryam Malik earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville in 2015. Dr. Malik specializes in general dentistry and is a certified provider of treatment with Invisalign.
Our practice offers a comprehensive preventive program, which includes periodic comprehensive examinations, thorough professional cleanings, oral cancer screenings and treatments to shield your teeth from dental disease. We strive to prevent the onset and progress of oral health problems, helping to preserve your natural teeth and keep your smile beautiful. For pediatric patients, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. An important component of preventive care is brushing and flossing daily; we make checkups informative and engaging, teaching your family the best techniques for maintaining excellent oral hygiene daily.
Combining the art and science of dentistry, we offer cosmetic treatment to transform your teeth into the smile of your dreams. Professional teeth whitening treatments, porcelain veneers and Invisalign can correct dental imperfections and straighten teeth to achieve a more ideal smile. For patients who are missing one tooth or several teeth, we offer advanced prosthodontic solutions, including dental implants, fixed bridges and customized dentures. Dental implants are surgical fixings, which act as artificial tooth roots to support replacement teeth, and come closest to recreating the look, feel and function of natural teeth. Using the All-on-4 and All-on-6 method, our dentist can place a minimal number of implants to support a full arch dental bridge.
By keeping pace with leading-edge technology and treatment methods, we aim to make treatment comfortable, convenient and better suited to your needs. Utilizing laser technology and air abrasion, our dentists can perform numerous procedures, such as curing dental fillings, periodontal cleanings and removing lesions, without the heat, pressure or vibration of traditional dental instruments. Dental lasers and air abrasion deliver precise, gentle treatment, without any triggering stimuli, which can help patients with dental anxiety feel more at ease during treatment.
