Recently, Dr. Wachs has introduced guided implant technology to Family Dentistry of Yorktown so that we are able to our patients the most precise dental implant placement available.

On a Personal Note:

Jen and Ken opened Family Dentistry of Yorktown in 2001, when their oldest was just one. They now have five fun-loving children (three sons & two daughters) as dentists in “training”. When the Wachs family is not in the office, they like to travel, watch hockey and most of all – to be together.
