Dr. Gyu Park, DDS

Maryland and his Master’s degree in Physiology and Biophysics from Virginia
Commonwealth University. He then attended the Howard University College of Dentistry
and received his degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery. Dr. Park completed his general
practice residency at Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center in Bronx, New York. 

As Dr. Park began practicing as a general practitioner, he developed a special interest
in Endodontics. It was tremendously rewarding for him to treat patients suffering from
teeth-related diseases and cure their symptoms without having to extract the
problematic teeth. As a result of following his passion, Dr. Park completed the
Endodontics Residency program at New York University and became a board-certified
endodontist (Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics).

Dr. Park treats pediatric, adult, geriatric, emergency and medically compromised patients on a daily
basis. His clinical expertise encompasses root canal treatment, root canal retreatment,
apicoectomy, incision & drainage, root resection, hemisection, dental trauma
management, auto transplantation and intentional tooth replantation.

Dr. Park is a warm-hearted, passionate endodontist whose first priority is patient
satisfaction. By treating every patient like they are his parents or family members, he
strives to render personalized and quality dental care in the gentlest way possible.

Dr. Park fluently speaks English and Korean and beginner level Spanish. He enjoys
spending his personal time with family and friends, snowboarding, fishing, camping and playing piano.
