“Everything starts with a beautiful smile. The difference that I make and want to keep making is giving my patients a beautiful smile to give an amazing first impression. You can never get a second chance to make a first impression.
“The first impression I like to make with our patients, especially our phobic patients, is that dentistry is done differently at Brooklyn Dental Arts. We change the way people think about dentistry because we all go the extra step to ensure a positive, comfortable dental visit.” – Dr. Slobodski
Our lead dentist, Steve Slobodski, DDS, received his Bachelor's degree from New York University before going on to the University of North Carolina Dental School to obtain his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS).

Dr. Slobodski is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), American Dental Association, and the Academy of Laser Dentistry.
Dr. Slobodski has lived in Battery Park since 2000. He and his family immigrated to the U.S. in 1975. When he’s not in the office, Dr. Slobodski enjoys playing soccer with his kids at the playground, fishing, yoga, and swimming. He is also active with REACH Grenada, which provides physical and emotional support to children in need in Grenada.
Dr. Slobodskis hard work and generosity have escaped the walls of Dental Arts abroad to volunteer.
During the month of July, 2016, Dr. Slobodski embarked to Peru through an educational program to Peruvian villages in the Andes Mountains.
He has educated the Peruvian students on the imporatnce of dental hygiene and their health. He suprised the children with gifts including tooth brushes, pens and pencils following a visual and dental exam for each child.
His dedication to volunteering has improved oral habits and diets of many children. His commitment to these outreach programs have changed their lives forever.
