Life & Hobbies

“I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic.  My uncle was a dentist there and I was quite young when I began helping him in his office. I watched how he built genuine relationships with the people he served and I loved seeing the positive impact he had on their lives.  My experience in his office led me to follow in his footsteps.  After completing my first dental degree in the Dominican Republic, I relocated to the United States and earned my second dental degree in New York so I could continue my practice in America.  In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, binging Netflix, and flying remote-controlled model helicopters.”

Danyal Z. Ahmed, DDS

Your smile is my reward.​

My Mission

Our smiles are the gateway to our happiness. I love the impact my work has on the lives of my patients. A simple cleaning can give an individual instant self-confidence, whereas implants, dentures, and more involved procedures greatly affect their long-term health and wellness. I am very fortunate that every day I am able to do what I love and make people smile.
