100 years of dentistry

Thanks for stopping by and learning a little more about me.

My name is Dr. Alex Shalman, and I am a cosmetic dentist in New York City and New Jersey. I am also a fifth generation dentist. Since my great, great grandmother finished dental school in 1917 to become one of the first female dentists in Moscow, Russia, my family has been practicing dentistry for nearly 100 years. I am the first male dentist.

I am obsessed with aesthetic and reconstructive dentistry, and I specialize in designing beautiful, healthy smiles with innovative technology. My desire for knowledge and belief in constant and never-ending improvement has led me to meet and learn cutting edge dentistry from some of the most prominent dental professionals in the world. My involvement in the dental community includes teaching at my alma mater NYUCD, advising the NYU Aesthetics Society and Participating in the University Relations committee in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Beyond my professional life, I love to study success. Living in New York has given me the opportunity to meet successful individuals outside of my own profession, who have helped me grow in all aspects of my life. Amazing mentors are a major blessing, and I would love to introduce you to some of mine through the Successfully, New York Podcast.

I look forward to connecting with you, bringing you best-in-class dentistry, and giving you insider access to incredibly smart people who are making things happen in my favorite city, NYC.

Warmly,
Dr. Alex
