Rishi Verma, DDS, FAAPD – Owner
Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
Specialty Permit #06022
I was born and raised in Canada (… not in an igloo, eh…), and completed my Honours Bachelor of Science in Biological Chemistry at the University of Toronto in 2002. Following my undergraduate studies, I ventured south of the Canadian border and obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the prestigious Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery.
After dental school, I wanted to expand my dental horizons and underwent rigorous training in a General Practice Residency at Harvard University, sharing my time between Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Dana Farber Cancer Insititute. It was during this time in Boston where I found my passion for Pediatric Dentistry. Subsequently, I obtained a Fellowship Certificate in Special Care Dentistry at Helen Hayes Hospital in Rockland, NY, where I was privileged to treat special needs patients both in the traditional dental setting and in the operating room. Following this fellowship, I spent two additional years of Pediatric training at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY, where I received extensive training in all aspects of pediatric dental care. During my time at Montefiore, I was elected by my colleagues and attending faculty as the Chief Resident of the Pediatric Dental program.
All of my extensive post-graduate training has enhanced my expertise in all aspects of Pediatric Dentistry, including behaviour management and guidance techniques, preventive and restorative treatment of caries, treatment of developmentally disabled children and adults, major and minor dental trauma, orthodontics, and treatment of patients under sedation and in the operating room. I am one of few pediatric dentists in the U.S. that is certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
I currently reside in Marlboro, NJ with my wife, Priti, an optometrist by profession, and two beautiful and energetic children, Jiya and Jai.

She then moved to NYC for dental school and graduated from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. After dental school, she completed a General Practice Residency at Helen Hayes Hospital in Rockland County, New York, which focused on treating patients with special needs.

She went on to complete a vigorous two-year pediatric dental residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, where she served as chief resident. After spending seven years in NYC, she’s excited to be back home and looking forward to creating a dental home for your children.
