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 with my fellow female dentist and organize a dental club. That is something to look forward to!
