Drs. Robert Slauch and Glenn Wolfinger, Board Certified Prosthodontists at Pi Dental CenterPeople often try to hide their smile when they are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. Right now, many people are covering their smiles with a face mask. Hopefully, we will all be able to remove our masks soon. Right now would be a good time to improve your smile!

It is now safe to move forward with dental care. Dental offices have been practicing high levels of sterilization for many years. And now, there are even more protocols in place to ensure the health and safety of both patients and staff.

Pi Dental Center provides comprehensive long-term dental solutions through a team approach. All phases of treatment are conveniently provided in our Fort Washington office. Our in-house dental labs ensure that your teeth will fit comfortably and look beautiful.

A Founding Dental Implant Center in the US

Pi Dental Center is a founding dental implant center in the United States. Dr. Thomas Balshi was one of the first dentists in the United States and Canada to learn Nobel Biocare’s dental implant protocol. He began placing dental implants in the late 1980’s. Over the years, Balshi and partner, Dr. Glenn Wolfinger, improved upon implant technology, making treatment time shorter, success rates better and prosthetics more attractive and durable. Best of all, treatment is more affordable with the All-On-Four Treatment Concept™.

The Teeth In A Day™ protocol dramatically shortens treatment time allowing a patient to leave the office with non-removable teeth supported by dental implants on the day of surgery.

Board Certified Specialists

Our board certified prosthodontists, Drs. Glenn Wolfinger and Robert Slauch, practice advanced dentistry grounded in evidence based science. All procedures and materials have been thoroughly researched and proven to be safe with long-term success.

Pi Dental Center dental implant treatments have a record of predictability. Patients can feel confident that their dental implants will remain in-tact for many years. Every single dental implant case is tracked from the day of placement and throughout each stage of treatment. Each implant becomes part of our in-house database as well as an international index. We have followed some implants for over 35 years. This tracking system contributes to our overall research and knowledge about implants and implant protocols.

Emerge from this pandemic better than before

This is a great time to begin dental treatment so that when we are all able to show our pearly whites again, yours will be sparkling and beautiful. Pi Dental Center can be your dental home where you can feel secure that you will receive excellent treatment in a warm caring environment. Let us help you achieve your oral health goals.

Northeast Cosmetic Dentists


We were featured in Good Morning America, performing live surgery in 2005, and appeared on the Today Show in 2008, showcasing our popular Teeth In An Hour protocol to replace dentures with permanent teeth.


We take pride in our trademarked Teeth In A Day procedure, as well as our incorporation of exclusive technology, enabling us to perform dental implant procedures on patients with minimal bone, without the use of bone grafts.


We are known for creating very natural smiles. Besides the application of dental science and biomechanical engineering, we study each face and each personality. There is a perfect smile for every person. Together with our lab team on site, we can create that smile.


According to Dr. Balshi, Teeth In a Day, one of the practice's driving axioms, reflects the doctors' shared goal with each patient they treat: to restore function and esthetic quality in a single-day procedure. "Our systematic treatment plans enable us to restore a broken smile without the need for frequent appointments," says Dr. Balshi. "Using a rigid acrylic or titanium framework supported by implants, the process is expedited for immediate function." Dr. Balshi creates a visual image: "Picture a picket fence with each picket representing a tooth. The fence post goes into the ground, which in this instance, is the jawbone, and the framework is the cross member." "It provides those whose teeth cannot be saved with a permanent solution," adds Dr. Wolfinger. "We remove the natural teeth and clean the mouth, then fix the dental implants into the bone and connect the new set of teeth."

Today, the Pi Dental Implant Center at the Institute For Facial Esthetics enjoys and international reputation, with a multilingual staff of 40, two on-site labs, more than 25 years of experience, and the placement of 33,000 Brånemark dental implants. Working with Dr. Glenn Wolfinger, Dr. Thomas Balshi prides himself on the vast array of services they offer.
