    Dental Implants

    Dental implants can restore your smile to the way it should look, feel and function. If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can be placed into the jaw bone to give you the structure you need to fully support a crown, bridge or dentures.

    For many patients, dental implants give them their life back. With dental implant restorations at The Dental Design Center in White Plains, your new teeth will look and feel as good – or better than – your original teeth. Learn More

    General Dentistry

    Your dental appointment includes a thorough exam and oral health screening. We utilize LOGICON® Software, a Kodak® product, which has been clinically proven to detect up to 20% more cavities between the teeth than traditional methods. We also utilize VELscope Vx® blue-spectrum light technology and OralCDx Brush Biopsy for oral cancer screening, which are two of the most powerful tools for detecting soft tissue abnormalities.

    Dr. Handschuh is empathetic towards dental fears, anxieties, and budget and creates a nurturing environment where you can relax and benefit from the oral health care you need for optimal health. He sets aside the time you need to ensure a comfortable and comprehensive visit. Learn More

    What our patients say...

    Dr. Handschuh came in on the weekend to take care of my teeth when I had an accident, no questions asked. My teeth look and feel like new- highly recommend seeing him!

    I have been seeing Dr.Handschuh for several years now and I continue to have a great overall experience every time I go. One thing that stands out to me is how thorough Dr.Handschuh is with his work and his cleanings. There is constant communication between us including X-Rays and any future problems that he foresees. From my experience, he is extremely reliable and only has the best interest of his patients. On top of Dr.Handschuh, I appreciate The Dental Design Center in Westchester having a very welcoming staff along with top of the line equipment. The Dental Design Center is always accomadting, whether it is with appointment changes or availability in their schedule. I would highly recommend Dr.Handschuh and The Dental Design Center to anyone looking for reliable and top of the line care.

    It’s been 6 months since you gave me my new smile and what can I say… it’s amazing! People are stopping me everywhere I go, to comment on the brightness and whiteness of my smile. One acquaintance told me I had a Hollywood smile that belonged on the Red Carpet.

    Marianne M.

    I think it speaks to a dentist’s talent when the work is so good people don’t realize anything’s been done…and I can honestly say this has been my experience thanks to you and the skill, artistry and time you gave to fixing my front teeth.


    I absolutely love my new smile. I am wearing colors that previously, I had not been able to wear and I have even ditched the lipstick!

    As a cameraman for 60 Minutes, its just as important for me to have a dazzling smile as it is for my colleagues who stand in front of the camera every day. It’s the impression that we make as a team that can make all the difference in how comfortable a subject feels sitting down for an interview. If I’m the first person that they’re meeting, I need the confidence to lead with a firm handshake and a healthy smile.

    Best Dental center I have ever been to! World’s friendliest staff who made me feel extremely comfortable (& got me over my phobia of going to the Dentist). The results I got were amazing as well! I almost cried of how happy I was with the work they did. Highly recommend this office!

    D. Gonzalez

    From the moment I entered The Dental Design Center I felt I was in the right place. The staff was warm, efficient and professional and took my needs and wishes to heart. All procedures were performed with skill, confidence and sensitivity to my understanding and comfort. I have long felt self-conscious and unhappy with my smile. When I saw my new smile, I was overwhelmed with the feeling that the person looking back at me in the mirror was the person who had been waiting to smile at the world for a long time. Not only was Dr. Handschuh’s work beautiful; he used subtle details to make my smile individually mine.

    Patti R.

    Dr. H and his staff are fantastic. They were welcoming, professional and attentive. I would recommend the team to anyone looking for a good dentist in the Westchester area.

    - Edward N. -

    I have tried several dentist in Westchester and The Dental Design Center is by far the best; I have stopped searching having found Dr. Handschuh. His office is professional, friendly and inviting. All of his equipment is Immaculate, you can tell he truly cares about the comfort of his patients. No matter the procedure Dr. Handschuh communicates clearly what he is doing and why and is always has gentle as could be. If you are looking for a new Dentist or are new to the area go to Dr. Handschuh you will not be disappointed.

    - Daniel J. -

    People continually compliment me on how stunning my teeth look. They are the perfect shape and color, they look very natural. I greatly appreciate the time and patience you always took making me feel comfortable and following up to see how I was feeling. I was very specific in what I wanted and you delivered. The end result…PERFECTION!!!


    From the moment you meet Dr. Handschuh and his staff, you know you have chosen the right person for your dental care. He is not only knowledgable, but is caring, gentle and takes time to explain dental procedures. Speaking of time, they are respectful of yours -- with rare exception, they never keep you waiting. I have been Ira's patient for 20 years, and travel from NYC to White Plains to see him. It's worth the trip!

    - Marlene -

    I have been going to Dr. Handschuh for many years (since he first opened his White Plains office). From the beginning I could tell that he cares about his patients and is a highly trained professional, who is focused on quality work. The office is very clean, comfortable, and state of the art. I highly recommend Dr. Handschuh to everyone! When you go to him you know you are in great hands.
