Meet our Doctors

Doctors Jacobson and Chubak were able to participate together in two Dental Outreaches with NYU. They went together to Machias Maine, and Manta Ecuador. There they treated the truly underserved patients who have no local dentists, and were faculty supervising dental students. During the outreach to Machias Maine, the team performed over 100 root canal treatments; and in Ecuador the team performed over 120 treatments. Both doctors plan to continue to participate with the NYU College of Dentistry Global outreach program.
