The Doctors

Dr. Valeri Dounski

Dr Valeri Dounski Profile Picture

Valeri Dounski, DDS is a skilled and experienced dentist who has been practicing general dentistry for more than 25 years. He has been treating various dental issues ranging from small fillings to implants, porcelain crowns and All-On-4 implant dentures. He specializes in cosmetic and restorative dentistry and is proud to work with the best dental laboratories, including Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics Lab in Long Island, NY – a leader in aesthetic-driven prosthetic restorations.

In 2002 Dr. Dounski graduated from dental school at NYU where he earned his DDS degree. Since then, he has been leading his private practice in Edgewater, NJ. 

Dr. Dounski’s philosophy is preventative, comprehensive and conservative. He has a delicate touch and an ability to explain diagnosis and treatment options in terms patients can understand. 

Dr. Dounski believes that the first step in dental care is diagnostics. The first consultation consists of thorough Oral Evaluation, Digital X-Rays (high-resolution Panoramic X-Ray and sectional X-Rays), Intra-Oral Camera Exam (photos of inside of the mouth), and a T-Scan Digital Occlusal Scan (digital analysis to evaluate the stability of occlusion and bite). All of these diagnostic tools help Dr. Dounski see the full picture of oral condition before offering an individualized treatment plan. 

Dr. Dounski enjoys an active, healthy lifestyle, and stays fit by spending a lot of time outdoors. He also loves art, photography, and exploring mountains.
