Want to support more female-owned businesses in NYC? Meet Dr. Alexandra Yungelson, cofounder of the best female-owned dental practice in New York City.
In a historically male-dominated industry, Dr. Yungelson and her Soul Dental cofounder Dr. Yuliya Alterman decided they were going to launch a practice together after meeting in dental school.
“I had always dreamed of becoming a dentist,” says Alexandra. “My first dental visit was at the age of seven, after immigrating to the United States from the Ukraine. My dentist was a kind and gentle man who truly cared about the wellbeing of his patients.”
Her positive dental experience as a child inspired her, as she had heard horror stories from her father about the “torture” of going to the dentist back in Ukraine. When her own experience was so pleasant, she knew she wanted to create that sense of safety for others while helping them to protect their health.
She Makes Dentistry More Comfortable for All
Dr. Yungelson has dedicated her dental work and her Soul Dental practice to being grounded in comfort care for her patients. Even with all the modern dental technologies designed to minimize or eliminate pain, Dr. Y knows that dental anxiety is very real. One study showed that more than 60% of people suffer from dental fear.
But fear is no obstacle for Alexandra. She makes sure that every patient knows, from the moment they walk into Soul Dental’s Chelsea or Midtown West locations, that their comfort is Soul’s priority.
Soul Dental offers a full range of sedation dentistry options, from non-invasive nitrous oxide all the way up to IV sedation dentistry. With comfort care as her priority, Dr. Yungelson has been able to make an incredible difference in the lives of her patients.
“From emergency calls to full-mouth rehabilitation and cosmetic procedures, I have transformed my patients lives. I feel privileged and honored to be a dentist and practice in the home that I love, New York City.”
