I often ask myself what makes a top dentist?  At the Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education I learned three important ingredients for being at the top: caring, judgment and skill.  First and foremost, a dentist needs to care about his/her patients, secondly he/she has to use good judgment to know what procedures are appropriate to perform.  Thirdly, he/she needs to have the skills to carry out the procedures.  I think about these three elements often.  I work hard at my East Setauket dental office to develop my skills and judgment, and I always care deeply about my patients.  They are part of our family.
