Meet the Doctors:
Dr. Eileen Calamia grew up in Orange County, California and currently lives in Manhattan with her husband, also a dentist, and daughter Vienna. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of California, Irvine and then pursued her dreams of becoming a dentist at the New York University College of Dentistry.
Dr Calamia believes in establishing good, healthy oral hygiene habits at a very young age. Not only does she focus on providing a fun and caring atmosphere, but she also values educating parents about a well balanced diet and preventative care.
“Dr. Cristina” Georgescu was born in Romania and currently lives in Fresh Meadows, Queens. As a young child, she did not have access to proper dental care which resulted in numerous procedures and visits to the dentist. Experiencing first-hand the stress and anxiety of these visits, Dr. Cristina decided to pursue her dream of building a fun, fear-free dental practice.
She received her B.S. in Biology from St. John’s University and went on to Columbia University School of Dental Medicine to fulfill her passion of becoming a pediatric dentist.
