“I have always been passionate about working with children, with a particular interest in working with individuals with special needs. From babysitting to tutoring, running youth programming at local synagogues, and working as a counselor and job coach for individuals with special needs at sleepaway camps, I have really learned a tremendous amount from each of my experiences, and they have helped me to further develop my calm, patient, and empathetic nature.”
“I love working with each of my patients to help improve their oral hygiene and overcome any fears they may have of the dentist. Kids are so lighthearted and genuinely just want to know that you care about them and will keep them safe. Once I establish that sense of security with my patients, I love to see their personalities come out and try to learn from them about ways to make going to the dentist more fun.”
— Dr. Friedman
