About Dr. Mina Elahi

 

Nancy McCormick is just one of the many pleased parents who have sought Dr. Elahi’s expertise in pediatric dentistry: “This has been a surprisingly pleasant experience. Before, when I used to take Jennifer to the dentist, I had to almost drag her in the door as she was crying and screaming. But now she seems almost eager to see Dr. Elahi, whom she considers as one of her friends. The first time we went to see Dr. Elahi she had such a pleasant chair side manner that Jennifer immediately felt at ease. Her office is professionally designed for kids, with a beautiful mural and all sorts of dolls, toys, and books; she even has the latest Barney video that Jennifer loves.”

By using the latest and most up-to-date techniques in pediatric dentistry and child psychology, Dr. Elahi ensures that your child’s dental experience will be surprisingly pleasant. Not only will your child benefit from her expertise in dentistry, but the pleasant overall experience and friendly environment will also make your child’s subsequent visits more enjoyable and easier to handle as parents.

A graduate of the renowned Lycee International des Pontonnieres of Strasbourg, France, Dr. Elahi attended dental school at NYU College of Dentistry, where she noticed early on that pediatric dentists approach their work as if they are dealing with small adults rather than children who have special needs and requirements. That kind of approach leaves a negative impression in children’s minds that stays with them during their adulthood. Dr. Elahi sought to change this negative experience for both the child and the parent by attending the prestigious Postgraduate Pediatric Dentistry Program at New York University’s College of Dentistry. She is a former Pediatric Attending at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

As with all doctors at Sutton Place Dental Associates (SPDA), Dr. Elahi attends seminars, workshops, and classes to remain up-to-date with the latest innovations in her field. In 1997, she completed the Advanced Orthodontics Course of the United States Dental Institute. In addition, Dr. Elahi is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the Comprehensive Core Honors Program and the Fixed Prosthetics Honors Program. Beyond the awards, however, her special relationship with her patients remains the most important and impressive aspect of her practice.

    Took me in (new patient) same day - within hours of my initial call. It’s a busy practice that seemed well run / extremely organized / very clean.
    Front desk personnel were friendly, organized, and helpful.

    This is a modern, friendly practice with lovely staff and a genuine feeling that they care about you. My exam was thorough and the dentist spent a generous amount of time describing what he found and suggesting a treatment plan. The front office staff were efficient and lovely.

    Nice staff and doctor, explained everything, cleaning was done in very relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend going at Sutton Place. Filling was done in my second visit. And it was done very comfortably with no pain. Really like the work and the expertise.

    The staff for this office are great. They explain everything well and detailed. I love that they don't sugar code anything from you either. Very straight forward. Definitely recommend you go see them.

    The dental hygienic clean was effective, and I was treated with the utmost care. I would hope for more clinic branches throughout the city.

    I had a very positive initial visit and was made to feel very comfortable by all staff from the moment I entered the office.
    In particular, I appreciated the quality of Jennifer's cleaning and Dr. Reshad's expertise and guidance.
