  • Shay Markovitch


    An Israelian born dentist, married with 3 children, Dr. Markovitch started his training in cosmetic dentistry from the very beginning 15 years ago, in Israel. He continued his training in the United States, at Eastman Dental Center in Rochester NY and in countless continuing education courses. His belief is that informed patients are better prepared to make the right decision regarding their oral health and well-being. Therefore he takes time to explain thoroughly to his patients all the stages of the treatment and options available in modern dentistry.

    Dr. Shay Markovitch is an Invisalign and Lumineer provider making creating a beautiful smile for his patients one of his priorities because he believes that a smile is a mirror to the soul. When not performing dentistry, Dr. Markovitch enjoys sports specifically soccer and basketball but usually prefers to spend his time with his wonderful wife and 3 children.

  • Lori Markovitch


    Dr. Loredana Markovitch began her career in Israel where she worked for 6 years in a private practice. She and her husband, Dr. Shay Markovitch and their two daughters, arrived to the United States in 2004. Dr. Loredana Markovitch continued her studies by attending the Advanced Education in the General Dentistry program at the University of Rochester, followed by her residency in Strong Memorial Hospital.

    Within this time, she attended numerous esthetic conferences and continued to do so even while being employed in a private office.

    She and her husband became the owners of Buchanan Dental Arts in the summer of August 2015, allowing them to fulfill their long dream of having their own practice. At Buchanan Dental Arts they are given the opportunity to utilize their vast knowledge and take care of the patients to their greatest potential.

    When she is not in the office, Dr. L. Markovitch takes care of their two daughters and a son. In her spare time she enjoys reading and playing tennis.

  • Stuart Rickett *Retired*


    Following graduation from Georgetown University of Dentistry, Dr Rickett was very fortunate to become mentored by Dr. Lawernce Behrman and join his Buchanan practice. He now is enjoying the third generation of many of those original patients.

    Dr Rickett has put together a wonderful team to take over the future dental needs of the local community. He is now able to enjoy more time with his five grandchildren as well as practice the profession he has always enjoyed. He will always consider his patients his extended family.

  • Dr. Carlos Garzon


    I am an experienced General Dentist in New York, certified in Advanced Education in General Dentistry.I have studied at prestigious universities such as Columbia University in New York and Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, Colombia and I speak fluent English & Spanish.

    As a general dentist, I believe that everything in the mouth, head and neck are correlated; Therefore, I treat my patients with a very conservative and comprehensive style.
