Lauren Becker, D.D.S.
Dr. Lauren Becker is a general and cosmetic dentist with a wide range of skills and experience in the field of dentistry. She earned her Bachelor of Science in cell and molecular biology at Binghamton University. Immediately following her undergraduate education, Dr. Becker was accepted to New York University College of Dentistry where she received a Doctorate of Dental Surgery. While at NYU, Dr. Becker spear headed the creation of the Peer Mentor Program to help incoming students handle the transition into dental school. She completed a postgraduate residency at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York. It was there she met Dr. Neil Berman who saw Dr. Becker’s true talents and natural ability not only for the clinical aspect of dentistry but also her genuine concern for keeping patients as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Becker is a life-long learner and enhances her training with various continuing education courses in order to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry and stay current with all of dentistry’s changing technology. Dr. Becker became certified by the Allemen Deli Pieri Center in the practice of biomimetic dentistry. Dr. Becker is part of an exclusive group of only a select few New York City dentists to be trained in this practice. Biomimetic dentistry focuses on the conservation of tooth structure, allowing the treatment of weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and safe from bacterial invasion. Advanced techniques and materials are used that can eliminate the need to cut healthy tooth structure to fabricate and crown and may even eliminate the need for root canal treatment.
Dr. Becker has also recently returned to her alma mater New York University College of Dentistry to advance her training in implantology.
Outside of the office, Lauren enjoys spending time with her husband Michael, their daughter Marlowe, their dog Herschel, and her family and friends. You can often find her at SoulCycle, curled up on her couch with a good book, or trying new restaurants all around New York City, where she is happy to be residing.
