Meet Dr. Maryam Edalat

Dr. Maryam Edalat is known by her patients as the only dentist they trust with the health of their mouth as well as their smiles. She smiles readily and encourages everyone else to do the same and is the nurturing spirit of our practice.

She went on to teach as Assistant Clinical Professor in the department of Periodontics.

Dr. Edalat admits to being a “life-long student”; she is committed to learning the latest techniques and developments in dentistry. She places a strong emphasis on treating the mind/body/mouth connection as a whole. Caring about people in general, and providing her patients with the latest in dental as well as overall health-conscious topics and information is what drives her practice, and this comes across clearly in the close-knit environment of our office, staff and family.

Spending quality time with her family and friends is where she is most happy. New York Periodontist, Dr. Edalat believes in giving back and creating value wherever one may be in one’s life path.

My husband and I both needed extensive dental work…and so, we actually flew to New York to see Dr. Edalat, after meeting one of his students who had raved about Dr. Edalat and his office. Both my husband and I feel and look so much better after our treatment. We wouldn’t dream of seeing any other dentist ever again!”
