Our team of three general dentists, one pediatric dentist, and one dentist anesthesiologist, is passionate about the dental health of children. We are dedicated to providing quality care to our patients and compassionate empathy to their families. We invite you to get to know our doctors:

Brad Green, DDS

This unique experience led to his interest in dental anesthesia.

He then completed his residency in Dental Anesthesiology at Jacobi Medical Center in New York City in 2014.In addition to working in the main hospital operating rooms, a significant portion of this training was devoted solely to treating special needs patients through The Special Care Dentistry Unit at Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center.
