Meet Dr. Manuela Krahn, Our Associate General and Cosmetic Dentist
Dr. Krahn was born and raised in Germany. After moving to the United States, she completed her undergraduate studies at Florida International University, where she graduated with high honors. She went on to earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree (DMD) from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduating, she completed her postgraduate residency at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. Since finishing her training, Dr. Krahn has been practicing in New York City, the city she calls home.
Dr. Khran is experienced in performing all aspects of comprehensive dentistry including cosmetic dentistry (ceramic veneers and crowns), restorative treatment, implant dentistry and emergency dental care (root canal treatments and extractions). As a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), Dr. Khran believes disease prevention is the key to long term oral health. She practices conservative dentistry, which means you will never hear her recommend invasive procedures that do not truly benefit the patient.
Focusing on preventing dental issues before they occur combined with conservative dentistry means that patients can expect their treatments to be generally more efficient and effective. Dr. Krahn believes that one of the key factors for providing high-quality care is working with patients on an individual basis and listening to their specific wants and needs. Creating trust with patients right away is what allows Dr. Krahn and the rest of our team to establish open and honest communication with each patient, which leads to positive experiences and exceptional dental care.
Dr. Krahn is fluent in German and Spanish and her hobbies include Citibiking, cooking, running in Central Park, and exploring new restaurants in the city.
“It is my passion to create beautiful smiles and help patients keep them for life.”
