Meet Dr. Danielle Zeifman

Your Florham Park and Mattituck Orthodontist

Dr. Danielle Zeifman is a dedicated orthodontist with a passion for creating beautiful smiles and healthy bites. Driven by her love for science and puzzles, orthodontics is like a captivating puzzle for Dr. Zeifman. She meticulously moves teeth into the correct positions, resulting in beautiful smiles and improved oral health. She takes immense pride in the opportunity to positively impact her patients’ overall well-being and the longevity of their teeth.

Dr. Zeifman received her Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA, where she met her husband, a fellow Long Islander. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery from New York University College of Dentistry, graduating valedictorian of her 359-member class. She went on to study Orthodontics at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. She also completed and published various research studies during her undergraduate and graduate studies.

One of the most rewarding aspects of Dr. Zeifman’s job is watching her patients grow and witnessing the transformative power of orthodontic treatment. As orthodontic procedures require time and dedication, Dr. Zeifman has the privilege of developing long-term relationships with her patients. From childhood to adulthood, she accompanies them on their journey, seeing how their smiles enhance their confidence and contribute to their personal growth.

When she isn’t transforming smiles, Dr. Zeifman enjoys spending time with her family. She and her husband, Ross, love spending time with her niece and nephew. She also enjoys playing with her sheepadoodle, Lil Kim, fondly known as Kimmy Girl.
