Jennifer Sipkin, DDS, PC

Dr. Sipkin graduated Columbia University College of Dental Medicine at the top of her class in 2004, and was immediately accepted into NYU’s prestigious Orthodontic residency program.   As a proud lifelong New Yorker, she considers it a privilege and an honor to have studied under some of the greatest Orthodontists and craniofacial specialists New York has to offer.  Loving academia, she has taught dental students and residents at NYU and Columbia, and has performed and published research on numerous scientific topics ranging from craniofacial disorders to periodontal disease.  Her most recent publication can be read in The Angle Orthodontist journal, and studies the efficacy of Invisalign treatment on patients with periodontal disease and she has been featured on CBS news for her experience with Invisalign. 

Dr. Sipkin prides herself on keeping her bustling office full of warmth and personal attention toward her patients, and enjoys treating both children and adults of all ages.   She is a mom first, and the mommy instinct kicks into her decision making and treatment of all patients under her care. 

“It’s a big responsibility…people are trusting you with their kids.  I take that very seriously.  I have very high standards for how I expect Doctors to treat my girls, and I wouldn’t dream of giving less to my patients. And when the mom of a patient ends up asking me to do her Invisalign…that is always a personal highlight for me.  It means a lot to me when they are thrilled with their experience at my office.”

Dr. Sipkin has been president of her PTA, leads her school and neighbors in frequent community service fundraisers, and spends her free time being a mom to her elementary school aged daughters, Amelia and Addison.  She lives in Manhattan with her girls and husband/high school sweetheart, Doug, but considers it her privilege to serve Valley Stream, Lynbrook, Elmont, Rosedale, and surrounding communities each day.

“I love what I do.  I truly strive each and every day to give the highest quality care to each of my patients.  Period.  No two patients are alike, and customizing each treatment to attain perfection is my goal.  Forming a relationship with my patients and their families and helping transform their smiles into something we can both be proud of is the best part of my job.”
