Get to Know Dr. Rina Singh
For Dr. Singh, it’s nearly impossible to list everything that she loves about being a dentist.

If you’d like to learn more about her, just keep reading below.
Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?
While studying biology at Stony Brook University, Dr. Singh worked for a doctor in the microbiology department, researching the effects of various oral vaccines – specifically the polio virus. During this time, she gained a tremendous interest in the oral cavity, oral bacteria, and how it links to the rest of the body. As she worked more closely with dentists as an undergraduate, she realized that she was fascinated by the science behind dentistry, which led to her enrolling in dental school. Throughout the program, she also discovered the creative/artistic aspects of the work firsthand – and it was true love!
Where Did You Study
After completing her Bachelor of Science at Stony Brook University, Dr. Singh pursued her dental doctorate at the Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine. This was followed by a one-year General Practice Residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center (now called Northwell Medical Center) in New Hyde Park, NY. She still regularly pursues continuing education in a number of dental specialties, including Invisalign, laser dentistry, and BOTOX/dermal fillers. She is an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of Facial Aesthetics, SPEAR Education Club, American Dental Association, and the Pennsylvania Dental Association.
