Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Nahid Neman

    I trained in dentistry in Tehran, Iran as well as Goldman School of Dental Medicine at Boston University, where I received my specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry. I opened my first practice in Forest Hills New York in 1984. I opened my home office in Great Neck so I would not be far away from my two young children when they came home from school. A quarter century later my older son Jonathan joined me in my adventure. I am so happy he is a part of NFD- with his new energy and advanced skills and my years of experience, we are able to offer 21st century dentistry to our patients. My new hope is to get together my fellow female dentist and organize a dental club. That is something to look forward to!
