HELPING PEOPLE SMILE, ONE PERSON AT A TIME

My profession is my life. I love what I do: I love helping people smile and making a lasting difference in their life. Nothing is better than when a patient comes and thanks me for changing their life for the better. Whether I’ve improved their smile, restored function so they can chew comfortably, or relieved their pain, their life is now happier.

I love helping people get their smiles back. It’s rewarding to see a person smiling after a root canal. They may have been crying from pain an hour ago and now that pain is gone. It’s just as rewarding to see the difference cosmetic work does for a person’s confidence. I am honored to be able to help people in this way.

I’ve been practicing dentistry since 2001. My dad was my biggest inspiration. He was a dentist back in Moldova. As a child, I remember walking through the streets with him. Random people would come up and thank him for getting them out of pain. As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a dentist. I can’t think of anything more fulfilling!

MY TEAM AND OUR OFFICE

I love working with my team. They are like family and truly care about each other and our patients. They will do whatever it takes to make patients feel welcomed, cared for, and supported. We care about each person’s wellbeing and strive to make each visit a positive experience. We’re here to help!

EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION

My undergraduate degree was obtained at Pace University. I then attended the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, where I was awarded my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

Throughout the year, my team and I attend continuing education, through meetings, lectures, and seminars. We want to deliver leading-edge treatments, using the best technology, and continuing education makes that possible.

PERSONAL LIFE

I lived in Moldova until I was 13. In 1989, my parents decided to come to the United States to give my brother and me the opportunity of a better future. They wanted to live in the greatest country in the world. I can’t see myself living anywhere else.

My wife is also my office manager and works with me at both offices. We have three amazing kids: two daughters and son. We also have 2 dogs, CoCo who is a poodle/Shih Tzu mix and Daisy is a golden doodle, they're the friendliest dogs you’ll ever meet.

When I’m not caring for patients, I love spending time with my wife, kids, and close family. I love gardening and growing my own fruits and vegetables, too.

EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION

I completed my undergraduate education at the Macaulay Honors Program at Queens College, majoring in Neuroscience and Biology. I continued my education at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, graduating with my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. After this, I completed a one year General Practice Residency at The Brooklyn Hospital Center, where I gained experience in oral surgery, pediatric dentistry, cosmetic & full mouth rehabilitation, as well as special needs in an operating room setting. 

I joined Lotus Smiles to follow my passion of providing top quality personalized care to each and every patient that walks in the door. I aim to utilize our cutting edge tech and materials to provide painless clinical care. I am dedicated toward achieving the highest standards deserved by all patients and hope to welcome you with a warm, caring, and energetic demeanor to create a comfortable and productive atmosphere. I enjoy keeping up with the newest dental breakthroughs through continuing education seminars and workshops.

 

PERSONAL LIFE

In my spare time, I like hiking, traveling, and exploring new activities and adventures with my husband and two affectionate cats! We enjoy staying active by playing tennis and snowboarding. I also like to try new recipes in the kitchen and spend time with my family on Long Island.
