Often referred to as “Dr. G” by his patients, Dr. Gizachew wants to help others change the lives of his community for the better. He strongly believes that routine dental exams can help people be prepared when it comes to their at-home oral care. This is why he spends at least two hours or more with new patients. Furthermore, you can expect him to customize each treatment plan to your needs, never offer a “one-size-fits-all” solution. If you’d like to learn more about him, check out his bio below!
Long before he actually enrolled into dental school, Dr. G recognized that his community needed hyper focused oral healthcare for individuals and families living in Staten Island. Since he was just 13 years old, he found it difficult to find the right dentist that could fit his needs, despite visiting multiple dental offices in the area. Eventually, he found himself fascinated with the field of dentistry as a whole, even though his current interests were unrelated, and he had already been working as a teacher at a local university (he completed research focused on skin cancer.) However, the seed of interest was already planted, and soon enough he decided to enroll into a dental program. Today, he continues to expand his dental education.
To obtain his dental degree, Dr. G attended New York University. There, he was also introduced to a new way to practice dentistry. According to his mentor at the time, dental implants were going to be the way of the future, a comment that Dr. G took very seriously. After he graduated, he would start dental implant training at a state-of-the-art facility at Rutgers University and complete residencies at Bellevue, Gouverneur, NYU, and Coler-Goldwater hospitals. While he would accept the position as a clinical director at a hospital, allowing him to train others on both implant and cosmetic dentistry, he realized the best way to provide the highest level of care possible was to open his own dental office. In 2018, he opened his own dental office and just two years later, he would open three more!
To this day, Dr. G has nabbed Top Dentist awards in both New Jersey and New York multiple years in a row. He logs nearly 300 hours of continuing education every year and does his best to keep up with a field that is constantly developing and expanding. He understands the importance of always working to improve his professional development through medical journals, trainings, and other avenues. Thanks to his commitment to learning the use of revolutionary technologies, he’s been able to provide a soft tissue diode laser, digital impression system, and much more into his dental office. He’s also studied BOTOX®, dermal fillers, PDO thread lifts, and TMJ/orofacial pain trigger point injections thanks to his training from the American Academy of Facial Aesthetics.
Dr. G is happily married to his wife and they raise four kids together as well as a dog. While he finds much of his time being taken up by studying dental implants and esthetics, even when he’s not working, he thoroughly enjoys taking his family out for camping trips when the weather is right.
