Dr. Kenneth Magid is currently the Director of Pre-Doctoral Laser Dentistry and Associate Clinical Professor at NYU College of Dentistry and is the Assistant Director of Honors Esthetics. He has appeared on national television and radio shows to discuss high tech and cosmetic dentistry including ABC and The New York Times. Dr. Magid lectures throughout the U.S. and Canada and is a contributor to many journals on topics including "Minimally Invasive” Dentistry, Laser Dentistry, Digital Radiography, Air-Abrasion dentistry, “21st Century Dentistry” and Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Magid received his dental degree from New York University College of Dentistry. Dr. Magid had practiced dentistry for over 40 years and practices at Advanced Dentistry of Westchester in Harrison, NY. Dr. Magid was inducted into The International College of Dentists (ICD) in recognition of his services to the field of dentistry. The top 4% of dentists worldwide are offered fellowship to The ICD, the pre-eminent honorary organization of the world’s top dentists who have by their actions demonstrated an interest and concern for their communities and profession.
"Throughout his career, he has purveyed not only an exemplary chairside manner but also championed innovation. In fact, some of today’s most popular tooth-whitening methods are based on his patents; he also helped develop drill lights and curing lights, and shepherded digital X-rays through the FDA.
Magid’s practice, Advanced Dentistry of Westchester in Harrison, offers technologies only found at 1% of dental offices nationwide — everything from no-drill cavity repairs to crowns made while the patient waits. He devotes precious time to rendering care and relief to the less fortunate, traveling to the Dominican Republic last year with a group of dental professionals who provided $4 million worth of free procedures.
Last September, Magid was inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Dentistry, an honor bestowed upon just 2% of American dentists. He is also a Fellow of the International College of Dentists, comprising just 4% of dentists around the world." -Westchester Magazine25 June 2020
"Beauty and youth has become an enormous part of our society. When you add to that all the selfies, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and social media – how you look and smile – because everybody smiles when they do a selfie – has become an enormous part of our culture. Your confidence level, how people judge you, when you go for a job interview, when you have social situations, when you are dating – your smile says a lot about you." - Dr. Kenneth Magid, LoHud25 June 2020
"I lecture to all of the students at NYU College of Dentistry- about 300 students per year and hands-on teaching with 15 students per year. Every Friday, I head from Westchester, NY to Manhattan to do this. I have been doing this for the past 12 years and find tremendous satisfaction in teaching. Teaching at the level that I do in the Honors Esthetics program at NYU is about continually learning…for me! As part of our program, we do literature review every week, analyzing the best and latest literature on esthetics, dental materials, and restorative dentistry. In our program, I teach with leaders in cosmetic dentistry and we constantly learn from each other. Every treatment case is presented by the students to the entire group and sometimes to the entire university. The options and considerations are discussed and debated to arrive at the best treatment plan. Motivating the young dentists that have the desire to be the best they can be is tremendously rewarding. In my lecture to the first-year dental students which includes case presentations from my best fourth-year students, I challenge the audience that “If they want to play in my playground of Honors Esthetics they need to bring their A game.”25 June 2020
