For 29 years, Dr. Cardinale has been helping our patients achieve an ideal state of oral health. Dentistry is a combination of science and artistry, and his patients understand that a healthy mouth is a starting point for good general health. For Dr. Cardinale, there is nothing better than partnering with our patients and our team to create the ideal personalized care our patients deserve.
A native of Staten Island, NY, Dr. Cardinale received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from New York University. After graduating from NYU, he completed a General Practice Residency at Staten Island University Hospital in New York in 1985. Dr. Cardinale would later teach residents and assistants at that same hospital for the next 15 years.
Dentistry allows Dr. Cardinale to meet and help so many diverse people. But for all that diversity, they all seek the same thing: to have a healthy mouth and an easy, comfortable dental experience. The problems that patients have, challenges Dr. Cardinale to meet their needs and hopes with compassion, empathy, and understanding. Meeting and surpassing those needs is a great reward that is reflected in our patients' smiles. Dentistry helps Dr. Cardinale touch peoples’ lives; whether it's doing a filling, stopping a toothache, or remaking a smile, he knows that person is on the path to dental health and that he and the patient have traveled that path together. And for him, that is rewarding and extremely gratifying.
Dr. Cardinale, who takes continuing education very seriously, has continued to expand his training and knowledge every year in order to remain on top of the newest ideas, techniques, and treatments in the field. Dentistry is an ever-evolving profession; new materials and processes improve our results and make our patients’ experiences better, easier with more optimal long term results.
