“Your smile is the first feature people notice and maintaining it is of the utmost importance. It’s not just about vanity, a great smile can instill confidence and support you in your career, relationships and life goals. I feel quite strongly about the power of a perfect smile–a perfect-for-YOU smile–and even pioneered a technique called Facial Aesthetic Design (FAD), which creates symmetry of the entire face by re-contouring the smile using porcelain veneers, allowing for the transformation of features like a crooked nose or deviated chin. I want to help you attain the best smile for you by sharing my expert advice, educating you about the various options available for everything from whitening and daily at-home care to a complete set of veneers and suggesting which questions to ask your dentist. It’s important to ensure that each smile fits one’s personality – there’s no one-size-fits-all option!”


A graduate of New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry, Apa completed his general practice residency at New York Methodist Hospital, and a one-year clinical concentration program in cosmetic dentistry at NYU. He has lectured extensively both nationally and internationally for dental companies, study groups, and NYU on current topics in aesthetic dentistry to thousands of dentists.
