A graduate of Georgetown University School of Dentistry, the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies and the Eastman Dental Center’s Advanced General Dentistry Training Program, Dr. Ira Koeppel brings a progressive and caring aesthetic to the profession of preventive and cosmetic 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 the organization in 2000.
With his practice based in the leafy village of 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 and every patient, both literally and figuratively. For anyone visiting Dr. Koeppel’s relaxed, impeccably furnished offices, “I Love My Smile” is the ultimate objective and the motto he and his staff live by. Small wonder that many of Dr, Koeppel’s patients include top New York fashion models, television actors and entertainers.
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, which can include foot massages and ambient music. The cozy, home-like 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 also treats sleep and breathing disorders such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. By assessing a patient’s oral airway and nasal passages with quick and painless sound wave scans, Dr. Koeppel can determine the extent of the disorder. He then designs a custom oral appliance, similar to an athletic mouth guard, which allows free, uninterrupted flow of air so that proper sleep is restored.
Dr. Koeppel regularly gives lectures to dentists and other professional groups on such subjects as dental sleep medicine, neuromuscular dentistry, TMJ therapy, veneers, cosmetic dentistry and the use of laser technology.
