    Dear Patient,

    It is with great pleasure that I, along with Dr. Zerbo, will be taking over Dr. Gambino’s practice. I am looking forward to meeting you and your family and continuing to provide you the highest quality dental care in a warm and friendly environment.

    To help you get to know me, I’ll share a little bit about my background and my personal life. I was born and raised in Mt. Sinai, which is where I have settled with my wife, Mary, and my 4 beautiful daughters.

    I received my undergraduate degree at SUNY Albany with a double major in Biology and Psychology and earned my DDS at SUNY Buffalo. I went on to do a residency at Stony Brook and completed my education there as Chief Resident in 2008.

    Some of the most rewarding aspects of my job are forming long term relationships with my patients and their families, helping patients overcome their fears of dentistry and helping patients reach their dental goals through individualized care. I also love the opportunities that dentistry provides to give back to the community and underserved areas.

    In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes taking my girls to their swimming, martial arts and rock climbing. I also enjoy cooking, family game night and
    going to the gym. I look forward to meeting you and serving your dental needs now and in the future.

  • Dr. Edward Zerbo

    Dear Patient,

    I am excited to announce that Dr. Soral and I will be taking over Dr. Gambino’s practice. We are both looking forward to meeting you and your family.

    I grew up in West Babylon, New York. I have lived in Detroit, Michigan and Brooklyn, New York but Long Island will always be my home.

    I completed my undergraduate degree in Sociology at Stony Brook University. I then traveled to Detroit, Michigan to complete my dental degree at the University of Detroit Mercy. I completed a dental residency program at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn. I am a member of the ADA, NYSDA, SDCA, and Dental Town.

    Dentistry is a career that I have found to be very gratifying. I take great pride in listening to my patient’s concerns, making the patient feel relaxed and providing each patient with all treatment options available for their specific needs. Dentistry also affords me the opportunity to give back to those truly in need, something I am very passionate about. I was able to help provide services to Hurricane Katrina victims and I have also been on mission trips to Guatemala and Tennessee to further help areas that are underserved.

    In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Lisa. I also love cooking, gardening, fishing, and chess.

    I look forward to meeting you!
