Grafman DDS

Dr. Irene Grafman, DDS

Practicing dentistry for over two decades, Dr. Irene Grafman has always sought to treat people, not teeth. As a third-generation dentist, Dr. Grafman had early exposure and experience to know the kind of practice she wanted to create – one that focused on the overall well being of her patients. 

While there are many practicing dentists in NYC, Dr. Grafman takes an innovative approach towards dentistry, which sets her apart from the others. She was one of the first dentists to bring a relaxing spa feel to dentistry and is one of the few dentists to specialize in facial development. 

Additionally, through her knowledge of TMJ, facial development, and sleep and airway improvement, she not only provides a beautiful smile but also improves people’s lives by helping them look and feel younger. 

Dr. Grafman attests that one of the keys to her success is staying on top of all the latest advancements in dentistry through constant, continuing education. Dr. Grafman attends dental advancement lectures and hands-on coursework with The Pankey Institute, Dawson Institute, and numerous others, and is also an active member of American Dental Association, New York County Dental Society, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and Peninsula Hospital Dental Society. 

Dr. Grafman graduated from the New York University School of Dentistry in 1998. In late 1998, Dr. Grafman opened the doors to Smile Health Spa, a dental practice that focuses on the overall health and wellness of the patient as well as the smile and its inter-connectivity to the body. Dr. Grafman resides with her husband and son in Merrick, Long Island. 


It’s incredible to me how the profession has advanced even in the 15 years I have been practicing. As I age I have begun to notice changes in my own mouth that have lead me to research and find answers that can also help my patients. 

In my 20s I felt I had a great smile, always receiving compliments I never looked at myself as someone who may develop the problems I spoke to my patient’s about. But slowly I started to notice my teeth shifting ever so slightly, then my front teeth appearing shorter than they did in old photos. 

Finally, recently I noticed some clicking and discomfort in my jaw joint accompanied by snoring that has worsened over time. All this curiosity about myself and even more, wanting to prevent my son from ever developing cavities, gum disease or any of these issues I am experiencing myself, has led me to gain a great deal of knowledge about prevention, proper treatment, and the mouth-body connection. 

I believe with this knowledge I am able to offer my patients answers and results that could take them years and numerous doctors to find. My goal is to help each of my patients achieve a beautiful smile.
