Dr. Manuela Krahn - Your Long Island City dentist at Queensboro Plaza Dental Care

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.”

Dr. Jodie Smith - Your Long Island City dentist at Queensboro Plaza Dental Care

Meet Long Island City Dentist Dr. Jodie Smith

Dr. Jodie Smith is a New York native who began her dental journey as undergraduate at Cornell University. She participated in a service trip to Guatemala. During this trip, she volunteered at a local elementary school where taught students about dental health. Her work in Guatemala allowed her to be a part of something bigger than herself and fueled her interests in dentistry.

She graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. During her time in dental school, she fully immersed herself in activities that would paint the full portrait as to what dentistry entails and further her experiences in serving the community. She volunteered in the greater Cleveland area, providing free dental care. She taught elementary and pre-dental students about proper oral health and demonstrated clinical techniques she has acquired. She constructed a school newsletter with creative dentistry-based content. In an effort to continue to advocate for global health, she raised donations to be sent to a dental clinic in Jamaica. Additionally, she promoted public health. Her thesis focused on investigating the effects of socioeconomic status on dental health professional shortage area ranking. In doing so, her research provided the dental health community with another factor that affects New Yorkers’ oral health and shows the importance of having dental health professionals readily available.

She continued her education by completing a general practice residency at NYC HHC: Bellevue Hospital. Dr. Smith is a member of the Psi Omega Dental Fraternity, the American Dental Association, the Ohio Dental Association, and the Chi Alpha Epsilon Honor Society.

Dr. Smith understands that there is a connection that binds patient to their dentists. General dentists are the first stop when a patient is in need. Their expertise devises the plan on how to treat and when to treat. Dr. Smith recognizes that the amount of trust the patient has for her is remarkable and she is dedicated to two jobs: making your dental experience euphoric and making your smile a little brighter.

Dr. Smith enjoys playing tennis and traveling.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
