Dr. Podolsky received his B.A. and M.S. from Adelphi University in 1998. In 2003 he earned his D.M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, one of only three Ivy League dental schools in the country. While there he received his Specialty Certificate in Periodontics, serving as the Department’s Chief Resident for the next 3 years.
Dr. Podolsky’s training covers all aspects of Periodontics and implant surgery, including soft tissue surgery and the Pinhole Surgical Technique (he is one of only 3,000 dentists in the world trained to perform this procedure). He is also renowned for his expertise in hard tissue reconstruction, bone grafting, gingival (gum) grafting, implants and cosmetic reconstruction.
Dr. Podolsky became a Periodontist because he thrives on the precision involved in successfully treating his patients. He believes that every case should be customized based on individual needs and finds it extremely rewarding when patients are thrilled with the results of his work. He has taken to heart the idea that when a person loves what they do, they never have to work a day in their life.
In addition to his 15 years of experience as a practitioner, Dr. Podolsky has been an Assistant Clinical Professor at New York University College of Dentistry in the Department of Periodontics and Implant Dentistry for the past 10 years. He is certified by the American Board of Periodontology and continues to lecture at numerous dental conferences on state-of-the-art implant and bone grafting techniques.
A resident of Queens, Dr. Podolsky loves to spend time with his twin daughters and step daughter. He also enjoys hanging out with Spanky, his 12-year-old cocker spaniel. Dr. Podolsky is an avid tennis player and has skied all over the world.
