Dr. Bradford Mclaughlin

Healthy teeth are a valuable asset in our culture. Your smile reflects good hygiene, proper personal care, and radiates your personality. I have received a lot of dental care throughout my life, and I have been inspired to pursue dentistry as a career.

I came from California to New York City to be educated at New York University. My goal is to create a safe environment where people feel comfortable talking about sharing their concerns and feeling cared for in a dental office that helps to overcome fear of the dentist.

I want to help people smile like the way they always wanted in a safe environment. I aim to be at the forefront of new technologies and methods to provide my patients with the best care and treatment I can. As a healthcare professional, my gain goal is to gain the trust and respect of my patients, so that we can all live healthy, happy lives.
