Dr. Gizachew’s top goal is to help others in the community change their lives for the better. Often referred to as “Dr. G,” he believes that with routine dental exams, people can be better prepared to complete their routine at-home oral care. It’s also why he spends two hours minimum when getting to know new patients. Additionally, you can expect him to make every treatment plan unique to your specific needs. There’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach to his philosophy. Want to learn more about his background? Keep reading below!
Dr. G was actually quite focused on providing oral healthcare his community needed, whether they were individuals or families, well before he was accepted into dental school. Ever since he was 13 years of age, he noticed it was quite difficult to find the right dentist for him. This was despite having visited multiple nearby offices. Over time, he became increasingly fascinated by the field of dentistry overall, despite the fact that his interests at that time were unrelated. This was back when he was a teacher at a local university and had completed research focused on skin cancer (not exactly dentistry!) However, his interest in the field grew from a seed to a thriving and passionate fruit, which led him to enrolling into dental school. Today, his thirst for knowledge continues to be quenched with regular education courses every year.
Dr. G first obtained his dental degree at New York University. During his time there, he found a new way to practice dentistry. One of his mentors noted that dental implants were going to be the future of modern tooth replacements, and Dr. G took that prediction seriously. It’s why he, immediately following his graduation, started dental implant training at a state-of-the-art training facility at Rutgers University. He would go on to complete residencies at Bellevue, Gouverneur, NYU and Coler-Goldwater hospitals. This led to him becoming a clinical director at a hospital, where he trained other dentists in both cosmetic and implant dentistry. However, he eventually realized that in order to provide the highest level of dental care possible, he would need to open a private practice. In 2018, he opened his first practice and just two years later, three more would follow.
Today, Dr. G has acquired Top Dentist awards both from New York and New Jersey multiple consecutive years in a row. Every year, he completes nearly 300 hours of continuing education and does everything possible to stay updated on the constantly developing and expanding field of dentistry. His dental philosophy includes always working to improve his professional development, such as reading medical journals, completing trainings, and other methods. His commitment to education well after graduation enables him to include groundbreaking dental technologies, including a soft tissue diode laser, a digital impression system, and much more. On top of that, he’s studied BOTOX®, dermal fillers, PDO thread lifts, and TMJ/orofacial pain trigger point injections. He completed trainings for these treatments at the American Academy of Facial Aesthetics.
Dr. G couldn’t be happier to be married to his wife, cherishes the four kids they raise together, and enjoys playing with the family dog. Much of his time does get taken up by studying dental implants and facial esthetics, even outside of the dental office. However, he always makes time to be with his family and enjoys going on camping trips with them when the weather is just right.
