Alex Vasserman, DMD

I'm a dedicated dentist specializing in minimally invasive and painless dentistry. My passion lies in creating beautiful, long-lasting smiles for my patients.

After earning my master's degree in Graduate Medical Science in 2006, I pursued my dental education at Boston University School of Dental Medicine. Following that, I completed a residency program at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center. In 2013, I proudly established my practice in Midtown East, New York City, which now thrives on Lexington Avenue, between 69th and 70th streets, in the heart of the Upper East Side.

I’m a SPEAR and a Kois trained dentist. To stay at the forefront of my field, I actively engage in ongoing education through seminars, hands-on courses, and study clubs. I am honored to be a member of esteemed organizations like the American Academy of Cosmetic Orthodontics, AACD, the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, Seattle Study Club, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and the SPEAR Continuing Education.

In my practice we do everything from single-tooth dentistry, to full mouth rehabilitation. We use Digital Smile Design Concepts, digital articulators, 3D printing and exocad to achieve optimal results for the patients.
