Michelle Shimonova, DDS
Dr. Shimonova is a New Yorker, born and raised. She graduated Cum Laude from Adelphi University's accelerated 7-year joint dental program with NYU College of Dentistry. This made her one of the youngest graduates in her class. Following dental school, Dr. Shimonova completed her residency at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, where she trained from the best and built upon her dental knowledge and experience. Since then, she has been an associate at various dental practices throughout Manhattan, learning and evolving into the dentist she is today. Opening a dental office with her husband, Dr. Katz, has been a longterm goal - one that has finally come to fruition.
"Dentistry is about so much more than teeth. A confident smile is so powerful it can light up a whole room. Aside from treating and maintaining oral health, my job is to make you comfortable, make you laugh, and make coming for your checkups as enjoyable as meeting up with a friend."
