Big News for Little Teeth

At Where Smiles Grow, we like to make a positive impact in our community by helping kids feel confident, comfortable, and empowered when they visit our practice. One of the ways we do this is by engaging a team of highly trained dental specialists who love kids.

In fact, we’ve just added two new dentists to our team—and we couldn’t be more excited to have you meet them!

Dr. Mehveen Qureshi

Known to her youngest patients as “Dr. M!”, Mehveen was born and raised in downstate New York and brings a ton expertise and experience to the practice. In dental school, she realized that her dream was to work with children. She even won the prestigious Pierre Fauchard Award for her research on social disparities in oral health among children. You can see her full bio here.

In her free time, Dr. M enjoys tennis, hiking, baking and decorating cakes for the holidays. You could say she has a sweet tooth for doing what she loves!

Dr. Sara Wilensky

Formerly chief resident of Pediatric Dentistry at the Cohen Children’s Medical Center in Queens, NY, Dr. Sara also brings a tremendous depth and breadth of experience and caring to Where Smiles Grow.

In addition to supporting Give Kids A Smile, a program sponsored by the American Dental Association to provide underserved children with free oral health care, she has traveled to places far and wide (like Madagascar) to lend her expertise to communities in need. You can see her full bio here.

Dr. Sara believes in creating a positive, fun dental experience for children that has a lasting impact on their overall health.
