Gold Coast Smiles founder Andrew Sami D.D.S, has established himself as a clinical leader in cosmetic, implant & restorative dentistry techniques, a level of expertise he brings to his Glen Cove office in Long Island, New York.
Dr. Sami began his professional education receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, graduating Summa Cum Laude from St. John’s University. While at St. John’s he was on the Dean’s List, was nominated for the Silver Key Award for excellence in Biology, and became a member of the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society and Watson pre-Professional Honor Society.
Inspired to pursue a career in dentistry after earning his undergraduate degree, Dr. Sami enrolled at SUNY Stony Brook, earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree with Honors four years later. Dr. Sami then went on to Nassau University Medical Center where he completed a program in advanced training in General Dentistry, serving as Chief Resident during his tenure there. Upon completion of that program, he was selected to join the hospital Attending Staff, teaching and supervising residents while pursuing his other professional endeavors in private practice.
A year later, Dr. Sami founded Gold Coast Smiles in Glen Cove, Long Island. Over the next decade, Dr. Sami worked incredibly hard, honing his craft in cosmetic dentistry techniques such as porcelain veneers, CEREC crowns & Cad/Cam technology as well as all facets of implant dentistry. In the quest to remain current in dental techniques, he participated in a multi-year Implant Dentistry Fellowship Program at New York University, receiving advanced clinical training in the surgical placement of implants, bone grafting, and the diagnosis, treatment planning, and restoration of implant prosthetics. This led to his membership in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
He frequently attends continuing education sessions to stay informed of best practices and research to allow him to provide the most current treatment modalities to his patients. To date Dr. Sami has accumulated over 1000 hours in advanced post-graduate continuing education courses concentrated around Cosmetic, Restorative and Implant dentistry. His other professional memberships include: the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, the Nassau County Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Glen Cove Dental Study Club.
Dr. Sami’s years of experience, attention to detail, and approachable, friendly transparent demeanor have helped him establish his Gold Coast Smiles practice as the premier dental practice in the Glen Cove & surrounding Long Island area. His core philosophy and style of practice caters to patients seeking quality comprehensive dental care with five star service. His practice caters to a large and diverse family of patients from all walks of life including government officials, professional athletes and celebrities.
Because of his professional accolades and contributions to his community, Dr. Sami was recently selected as one of America’s Top 40 Under 40 dentists by Incisal Edge Magazine, a leading publication in the field of dentistry.
On a personal level, when Dr. Sami isn’t spending time with his patients, you can find him dedicating his time and energy to his family, coaching his two young boys sports teams as well as partaking in his many hobbies and interests including physical fitness, photography, sports and cultural travels around the world. Many of his photos are displayed around the office.
