Friends Turned Founders

Dr. Sonya and Dr. Sinensky first met at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where they were both dental surgery students. The pair’s paths crossed once again when they began working together at a private dental practice in Manhattan, New York. It was there that Dr. Sonya and Dr. Sinensky realized they shared similar dental philosophies and a shared vision, favoring a focus on patient-centered, conservative treatment guided by continuing education. As their friendship grew, the pair decided to go on a mission: to change the way people experience the dentist.
