Dr. Ziad Jalbout

Doctor of Dental Surgery

Dr. Jalbout, a graduate of New York University College of Dentistry, has 20 years of experience in aesthetic and implant dentistry. After graduating from dental school, he worked for several years in New Jersey before starting his own practice in New York City in 2009.

Giving You the Smile You Deserve

Dr. Jalbout helps his patients achieve beautiful smiles by maintaining existing teeth, replacing missing teeth and preserving and restoring all support structures such as bones and gums to give you that perfect smile. He brings his aesthetic skills to everything he does from standard tooth colored fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays, veneers, crowns, bridges, aligner treatment, bone grafting and implant placement to total restoration and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Jalbout helps patients achieve the best smile possible through a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to treatment. In particular he helps patients improve their smiles, their confidence, and their oral health by using veneers, aesthetic (non-metallic) restorations, and implants. He transitions patients from having removable appliances into having fixed teeth, and he assists elderly patients to achieve better chewing capacity through the use of dental implants to anchor their prosthesis.
