Where It All Began For Midtown Dental Group

The Origins of Midtown Dental Group

Midtown Dental Group, established in 2008 by Dr. Daniell Mishaan, emerged as a beacon of patient-first care amidst an industry trend toward impersonal service. Starting in Manhattan’s Fashion District with just one office, Dr. Mishaan aimed to counteract the prevailing impersonal, number-driven approach in dentistry by prioritizing patient care above all. This philosophy quickly propelled Midtown Dental Group to expand across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. At its core, Midtown Dental Group is driven by a team of dental professionals dedicated to offering kindness, compassion, and empathy, ensuring every patient feels valued from their first step into any MDG office. Dr. Mishaan summarizes the ethos as a commitment to a warm, nurturing environment where patients’ well-being and satisfaction are paramount.

Our Midtown Dental Group Leadership Philosophy

At Midtown Dental Group, our leadership philosophy is rooted in compassion, high quality, and convenience. We prioritize empathetic, personalized care and foster a culture of kindness. Our commitment to excellence drives ongoing innovation and use of the latest technology. We also strive for convenience with streamlined services and accessible locations, ensuring exceptional patient experiences.
