Dr. Nancy was born in China and grew up in Thailand, where she spent many memorable summers riding elephants and snorkeling at the beach. She received her undergraduate degree in 2011 from the Wharton school, where she graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. She then went to Harvard School of Dental Medicine and discovered her passion for working with children during her rotation at Boston Children’s Hospital. She completed a two-year specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Dr. Nancy is the recipient of the prestigious Richard C. Pugh Achievement Award in recognition of her scoring in the top 3% on the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry comprehensive written exam. She is a part-time attending at BronxCare Health System/Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where she trains and mentors new pediatric dentists. Dr. Nancy is committed to being a life-long learner and bringing the most up-to-date guidelines and practices to her patients.
A big proponent of minimally invasive dentistry, Dr. Nancy advocates for the use of silver diamine fluoride and glass ionomer whenever possible. She believes in treating the child as a whole, and not just the teeth. Since good habits can have lasting impact, she makes sure to educate families on proper oral hygiene. She is dedicated to creating a positive environment for children and parents alike!
Outside of work, Dr. Nancy is an avid outdoor enthusiastic. She and her husband have hiked, biked and kayaked most of the Hudson Valley. She is also a keen runner, and has most recently completed the Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon. She loves spending time with daughter, Isabella, who is also becoming a budding outdoor lover.
