Hello – I’m Dr. Jeffrey Etess

Check out the tabs below to learn more about me!


Dr. Jeff (as he is affectionately known by his patients) completed his undergraduate studies from State University of New York at Albany with a Bachelors Degree in Biology and minor in Chemistry. In 1997, Dr. Etess was awarded his Doctorate of Medical Dentistry (D.M.D.) from the prestigious IVY League University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where he ranked among the top 10% of his graduating class with a perfect 4.0 Clinical GPA. In 1998, he attended an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine. This highly competitive program is a yearlong apprenticeship providing advanced training in general dentistry, as well as subspecialties which include oral surgery, anesthesia, implantology, prosthodontics, pediatric dental care, dental care for the developmentally disabled, and the management of medically compromised patients. For the next two years, Dr. Etess attended the prestigious New York University School of Dentistry, where he earned his post doctorate Endodontic Certification in 2000 and had the privilege of additional dental implant training. Dr. Etess returned to school to obtain his degree and Board Certification in Integrative Biological Dental Medicine(I.B.D.M.) and Naturopathic Medicine(N.M.D.) at The American College of Integrative Medicine & Dentistry, and graduated in February of 2016.

Such a complete and extensive education enables Dr. Etess to excel in all aspects of general, cosmetic, periodontal prosthesis and fixed prosthodontics dental therapies. Additionally he is a ADA certified and board eligible Endodontic specialist for root canal therapy, including routine as well as complex procedures, endodontic retreatments, pulp capping, endodontic revascularization, and all facets of endodontic and implant surgery. Dr. Etess has been trained in Biomimetic dentistry allowing him to expand upon the regular “holistic” type of dental treatment and take it to the next level by reconstructing teeth the way nature intended only using the latest biologically compatible materials.

Dr. Etess is certain to impress you with his high level of skill and technical proficiency. He utilizes the most state of the art equipment and cutting edge techniques, allowing him to provide a predictable, pain free, expedient experience. “Dr. Jeff”, as he is affectionately known by his pediatric patients, has a keen ability in treating this often challenging population. Dr. Etess is compassionate, caring and empathetic to his patients’ concerns and always goes to great lengths to ensure their comfort with whatever treatment may be necessary. His “chairside” personality always puts patients at ease. Dr. Etess resides on Long Island with his wife and three daughters, and is proud to be able to serve his local community in a profession that he is so passionate about.
