Taking a first step towards your dental health is an accomplishment and I want to treat it as such. I am very grateful to be a part of it. My name is Bogdan Popa and I am originally from Romania – no known relation to Dracula! I got into dentistry because I didn’t like how my own teeth looked. I can completely empathize with anyone who is self-conscious about their smile, it used to be me.
Education and Experience
I enjoyed dental school so much that I went twice! I attended Titu Maiorescu Dental School in Bucharest then again to Rutgers University when I got to the United States. While I was applying to schools in the US and up to the day before school started I worked as a Dental Assistant. My first job was actually at Yousefi Washington Clinic and transitioned to NJ/NY area for school where I assisted at an office in Manhattan. Both of these were outstanding experiences.
As I mentioned before, I have a passion for aesthetic dentistry because I understand how it can affect people’s lives. I would love to tell you more about it when you come into the office. I enjoy my continuing education and am particularly fascinated by new research understanding the connection between nutrition and oral health.
Outside the Office
It’s fun to make people laugh! Every now and again, I dabble in writing jokes and stand-up comedy. I should probably stick to my day job but you’ll probably hear me fire off a joke or two next time you come in for a visit.
