“I am very honored to be singled out by Westchester Magazine to receive this award! I believe I received this award for all the dentists that are improving the lives of patients every day. As a practice, Advanced Dentistry of Westchester has incorporated the latest advances in patient care to provide healthy, beautiful smiles, while contributing to our patients’ overall health. Our efforts in the screening and treatment for obstructive sleep apnea and other health problems have greatly enhanced the quality of life for many people,” said Dr. Sabrina Magid.
At only 29, Dr. Magid’s expertise in the dental field is extensive. While at The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Magid treated patients in the remote and underserved villages of Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Throughout her schooling and dental career, she has been committed to addressing the needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing patients. During high school, she took American Sign Language courses at the New York School for the Deaf, and at Duke University, she initiated and taught an introductory class on ASL and Deaf culture. She has acted as a mentor to other dentists, young and old, in sharing the need for sensitivity in their approach to treating deaf patients.
Dr. Magid is quite accomplished as a young woman in the field. She is the recipient of the prestigious “Robert Seminara Resident of the Year” award for “excellence in General Dentistry and outstanding service as a PGY1 Dental Resident” from NY Presbyterian-
Dr. Magid is focused on the future of dentistry and the “whole body” dentist approach. “We were one of the first practices in the country to use digital X-ray, which is more diagnostic than film with far less radiation. Today, along with digital X-ray, we use a tiny laser and camera to diagnose dental decay long before it is seen by other means--allowing us to treat conservatively.”
