Dr. Lauren Feldman is passionate about ensuring that coming to the dentist is a positive experience for each patient and works with families to establish good oral health practices from an early age. She focuses on prevention and conservative approaches to dental treatment (minimally invasive dentistry). Dr. Feldman completed her doctoral training at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, which included two years of classes at Harvard Medical School. This cultivated her interest in providing dental treatment to medically complex patients. To further advance this knowledge, she completed her post-doctoral training in the specialty of pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard School of Dental Medicine. During this time, she refined her skills at managing complex dental trauma cases and a very medically diverse and anxious patient population. She is trained in oral sedation, general anesthesia, and interceptive orthodontics. Dr. Feldman completed her B.A. in psychology at Barnard College, at the time not realizing how useful her degree would be in the field of pediatrics. She enjoys spending time with her patients and establishing long term, trusting relationships. She finds that this is a crucial element to successful visits.
Outside of private practice, Dr. Feldman is a Clinical Assistant Professor at New York University College of Dentistry, serving as the Postdoctoral Director for the Advanced Education Program in Pediatric Dentistry. She loves teaching the next generation of pediatric dentists. She is the recipient of a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) K02 grant for public health studies and research of and coordination of interprofessional education and practice at NYU. She is pursuing her masters in public health part time at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Dr. Feldman is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and serves as a consultant and grants reviewer for the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. She has lectured for the Greater New York Dental Meeting, the Northeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry, the New Jersey Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and has been a Guest Host on SiriusXM Radio’s Doctor Radio: The Dental Health Show.
