Dental health is an important part of overall health for ICS members.

“I inherited my passion for dentistry from my mother, who was a practicing dentist in both Moscow and New York for 40 years,” explains ICS provider Dr. Gregory Oselkin. “After graduating from Moscow University and NYU Dental School, I started my own private practice as a general dentist in Brooklyn. Thirty years later, we have grown to have office locations in Queens and Manhattan, offering general dentistry in three of New York City’s boroughs.

“We have deep experience serving patients with disabilities, and our offices comfortably offer services to members speaking English, Spanish, and Russian languages.

“Several years ago, I had the pleasure of becoming an ICS dental provider. From day one I was impressed with the professionalism, care, and attention ICS demonstrated to the needs of ICS members. We engage with ICS’s terrific staff on a daily basis, coordinating same-day scheduling and enjoying outstanding personal attention. ICS sets a standard of care for members, as well as a level of service for providers, that is truly first rate.

“After 30 years of private practice, serving thousands of patients, l cannot stress enough how important it is to visit your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. This is particularly important for members with physical challenges that may impede consistent self-care. We recommend an office visit every six months for the following: teeth cleaning, checking old fillings, and a change of dentures when needed.”
