Edwin Zaghi, DMD

I love working with children and experiencing their sense of humor and excitement for life. Showing a child that a visit to the dentist can be fun and enjoyable, especially if they are fearful to begin with, is such a great accomplishment. I view myself as a part of a team that includes our staff, our patients, and their parents, all working together to achieve healthy smiles for life.

Julie Blumenfeld, DDS

I love meeting new people every day and playing a part in their lives. My profession means so much to me: being a positive influence in the lives and health of so many different children, and learning from them in return, makes me look forward to practicing pediatric dentistry. I truly love explaining the importance of prevention to parents and children and empowering kids to keep their mouths healthy.  I have a passion for working with children and young adults, including those with special needs, and believe in educating patients and their families about the importance of oral health and its link to systemic health.

Sarah Morad, DDS

As a mother, I understand that when you bring your child in for dental care, you are entrusting another person with an important part of their comprehensive health. I treat every child with the same compassion and skill that I would want shown to my own child. Working in a pediatric dental practice gives me the opportunity to provide care to children and young adults with different needs and backgrounds. It also allows me to couple my advanced knowledge of dental treatment and management with my love of learning and connecting with people. It is so rewarding to see a young person progress through their dental health journey and being a guiding partner in their success.

I enjoy interacting with and helping children while creating a dental experience that is both positive and effective. Each patient I see is unique and I find that I learn something new from them every day. Whether I am examining a child at their first dental appointment or discussing with the family ways to ensure their child grows up cavity-free, I feel fortunate to have been blessed with a gift and the ability to improve the quality of life of the patients I treat.
