Meet Your Stony Brook Orthodontist
Andrew Everett, DDS
“Orthodontics is a rewarding combination of art and science that allows me to use my head, work with my hands, and interact with patients of all ages and backgrounds.
I‘m passionate about creating a smile that allows your personality to shine. I get excited when I see children and adults that are truly self-conscious and uncomfortable with their smiles because I know that we can dramatically boost their self-esteem and confidence!”
Education & Experience
I attended dental school at Columbia University’s College of Dental Medicine, earning my Doctorate in Dental Surgery.
After completing my general practice residency at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, I continued to my three-year orthodontic residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx.
During my time there, I served as chief resident and won the Herzberg Award, given to the top-performing resident.
I love that I get to know patients during such interesting times in their lives.
We work with children at a time when they’re going through dramatic changes physically, mentally, and emotionally. It’s a huge honor to help them through these changes and come out the other end with a boost in confidence and self-esteem.
In adults, we see patients who have, for whatever reason, decided it’s time to focus on themselves. Maybe they just finished putting their last child through college, or they’re finally in a position to make changes they’ve wanted for a long time.
Hearing their stories and helping them make these changes is something I value tremendously.
Outside of the Office
I grew up in Traverse City, Michigan, and now live in Long Island. My wife Sotiria and I have three children, Dimitri, Alexa, and Matthew, and a Boston terrier, Ella.
When I’m not at work, you can find me enjoying the simple pleasures with my family: going to the beach, cooking, traveling, and playing guitar.
