Hi! I’m your dentist, Dr. Doris Giraldo. Here is some interesting information about me:
I have been practicing dentistry for 28 years and hope to practice for 28 more years. I graduated from New York University College of Dentistry in 1989 and started serving as a clinical instructor in the Operative Department at the college (from 1989 to 1991.). I simultaneously opened my own private practice in 1989, and have been practicing at the current location since 1995.
I love dentistry. I love going to work each day and interacting with my patients. If you can take one thing away from this introduction, know that I am passionate about my job and the people and communities I serve. I volunteer my services in my free time both here and abroad – most recently, I went to the Dominican Republic in 2018 to donate my dental services there. You’ll quickly find that I am friendly, enthusiastic, and believe in building strong relationships based on trust and communication. I will always listen to you and answer your questions. We are partners in your dental care!
In my spare time, I enjoy being with my wonderful family! I and my husband, John, have been married for over 23 wonderful years, and I have two amazing daughters. We all enjoy running and biking in Central Park, and I have been a member of New York Road Runners since 2006. I enjoy road racing and have participated in over 16 half marathons and 4 NYC marathons, and broke my personal record in 2018 with a time of 4:09:19. I also participated in a NYC triathlon once and I loved it – but I admit my swimming needs work!
I am dedicated to continuing my education to stay abreast of developments in my field. I have taken an advanced two year program in both surgical and restorative phases of implant dentistry at New York University College of Dentistry, underwent Invisalign training in 1996, and have completed the Aesthetic Advantage program at New York University College of Dentistry.
I have also achieved the following certifications and memberships:
- Master level in Aesthetic Dentistry at Rosenthal Institute New York University.
- Master level in CAD/CAM Dentistry
- Mini Residency in Cone Bean C.T. Scan
- Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists
- Member of American Dental Association
- Member of New York State Dental Association
- Member of New York County Dental Association
- Member of Academy of Laser Dentistry
- Member of American Academy of Implant Dentistry
- Member of World Clinical Laser Institute
- Invisalign Silver Provider
I can’t wait to meet you. You can rest assured you’ll be in good hands!
