Practice History
This practice has it's roots dating back to 1917, starting with Dr. Louis Kronman and was located at 57th street and 5th avenue in Brooklyn. Dr. Kronman merged his practice with Dr. Jacob Colb, and then moved first to 69th street and 3rd Ave, and then to 78 street, off 3rd avenue In Brooklyn. Dr Colb was a prominent figure in the Bay Ridge Community, both in the Bay Ridge Jewish Center, as well as the Bay Ridge Dental Society.

Dr. Colb and Dr. Stanley Grossman became partners in 1963 and the practice was moved into it's current location at 7710 4th Avenue.

Dr Visintini and Dr. Grossman became partners in 1996 and Dr. Visintini and his wife Merryl took the practice over fully in 1999.

The tying bond throughout our practice history was Mrs. Mary Parnes..once known as 'Miss Alpert', who started working as a dental assistant with Dr. Kronman and has worked with all four dentists that called this practice their own.

Dr. Visintini and his wife cherish the day that they met Mary Parnes, for we feel that her presence has strengthened our practice beyond words.

Mary has recently passed, and we miss her terribly.

Our practice proudly treats a continuing lineage of patients, from grandparents down to grandchildren, with some patients traveling from their new homes in New Jersey, Connecticut , Pennsylvania, Florida and even Europe to have their dental needs met by our practice.

We do not advertise our practice, and rely on 'word of mouth' referrals to grow our practice.
This we feel is a testament to the personalized care rendered to our patients.

Drs. Frank and Merryl Visintini are licensed dentists in the state of New York.
