About Shankar S. Iyer

Focusing on complete mouth rehabilitation with surgical and prosthetic services, Dr. Shankar Iyer uses a patient care approach that maximizes efficiency with fewer appointments. “I concentrate on comprehensive rehabilitation and failure management of adverse dental outcomes from referrals,” he says. “I provide immediate function with implants that are created with the aid of cone beam imaging and navigated surgeries with in-house lab support.”

Offering comprehensive and affordable care, Dr. Iyer says that getting better results for his patients and continuing to build upon long-term success are his personal goals. “When we have patients who have been with us for more than 18 years and want to bring friends and family to us, we define that as being successful,” he says. “To earn a patient’s trust, confidence and faith is the most rewarding part
of my work.”

A graduate of NYU College of Dentistry, where he also received specialty training in prosthodontics, Dr. Iyer works with general dentists Dr. Preeti Iyer, Dr. Chitra Sarvotam, Dr. Jenny Howell, Dr. Dhara Shah and Dr. Youngmo Kang.

Dr. Iyer, the immediate past president of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, is proud of his ability to be an educator while being in practice, having personally trained more than 1,200 dentists worldwide in the placement and restoration of dental implants. The Consumers’ Research Council of America has listed him in their Guide to America’s Top Dentists for the past several years.
