What makes Dr. Rubin the dentist for me?

Where was Dr. Rubin educated?
Dr. Rubin went to Columbia University and graduated in 1982 with a D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery) and M.P.H. (Master of Public Health). That was followed by a one year residency at Jamaica Hospital in Queens New York. Since then she has been in private practice in New York City . She has been on staff Columbia University College of Dental Medicine located in New York City and is involved in continuing education on a regular basis.

What’s involved in the initial visit?
Your first visit to Dr. Rubin is vital for a successful treatment plan and it is at this time Dr Rubin will take you through a dental questionnaire, a TMJ exam, a soft tissue exam, a “bite” evaluation, and a gum and tooth exam. She will review your x-rays that you might have brought with you or will take appropriate x-rays if needed. Dr Rubin ensures she leaves enough time for her patients to ask questions and for her to give a precise diagnosis.

Do I need x-rays?
If you have legible x-rays that are not too old, please bring them. We need radiographs to properly diagnose your condition and certainly to drill into a tooth. If you don’t have films, will take a digital radiograph which uses 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays.

What services does Dr. Rubin provide?
Dr. Rubin completes a comprehensive suite of services from general to cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
