Robert Ferris D.M.D.
Meet Dr. Ferris
Ever since I began practicing orthodontics in 1990, I have been passionate about providing my patients with excellent service utilizing the latest advances in orthodontics. I am also consistently excited by the happiness and new sense of self that a beautiful smile brings to a person and their family after treatment is completed. There is nothing more gratifying than this, and I am grateful that I am able to reach so many people in order to perform this service. I am also constantly appreciative of the trust people place in my skills, allowing me to treat the most precious beings in their lives, their children.
Treatment Efficiency and Outstanding Results
Though outstanding results are my primary focus, I am also dedicated to treatment efficiency. In this regard, I am very careful to recommend beginning treatment at the point where I can do the most good for a patient within the least amount of time.
Education and Continuing Education
I began my education at Stony Brook University where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. From there I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of South Carolina where I graduated in 1987. I attended North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset until 1988 for my general practice residency. In 1990, I graduated from Columbia University where I obtained my orthodontic training.
I constantly participate in continuing education courses so that I can offer my patients the most current advances in orthodontic treatment. Additionally, I have several professional affiliations that keep me abreast of the latest in my field:
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Northeastern Society of Orthodontists
- Dental Society of the State of New York
- Nassau County Dental Society
I am a native of North Bellmore, New York and have lived in Port Washington since 1997. I am married and have a son and two daughters. When I’m not working I enjoy exercising, skiing, playing golf, and cooking. I am also an instrument-rated private pilot. I am continually excited by lifelong learning, my family and friends, and living a healthy, active lifestyle.
