Meet Our Dentists

Flatiron family dental
Michelle Shimonova, DDS
General and cosmetic dentistry
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.

Michael R. Katz, DDS
General and cosmetic dentistry
A big part of my job is listening. I listen to your dental needs, your esthetic concerns, but I also listen to your story. One of my favorite parts of being a dentist is the patients I get to meet.
