About Leo Yudkin

Dr. Leo Yudkin’s passion for dentistry and endodontics first began when he made plans to come to the United States to study from his native country of Latvia. He always considered dentistry to be the true American profession.

In 1989, Dr. Yudkin and his Latvian-born wife Maya moved to New York where he started his studies. He graduated from SUNY Buffalo, New York in 1995, and in 1998 completed his postgraduate studies in Endodontics at Columbia University. Since Dr. Yudkin opened his office in 1999, he has worked diligently to build a practice that’s distinguished by excellence in endodontic treatment using the most advanced technology.

His practice features sophisticated equipment for treating even the most complex root canal cases. When asked what he finds most rewarding about endodontics he says emphatically, “I get the most pleasure from saving a tooth which was previously thought to be not savable”.
