Dr. Kostantina Abate graduated from NYU College of Dentistry in New York City. Having been chosen into the Honours in Aesthetics program in her final year, she graduated with a clinical concentration in cosmetic dentistry. She is currently a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), and is working towards her accreditation.
Dr. Abate firmly believes in giving back, and has been lucky enough to travel to countries that do not have access to dental care and help provide much needed care. She travelled to Grenada, West Indies, where she was able to help prevent tooth decay in over 14,000 children by placing sealants and educating them in proper oral hygiene. She also travelled to Granada, Nicaragua where she helped provide an under serviced community get dental care in the areas of pediatric, endodontic, and restorative dentistry and oral surgery. She hopes to continue her travels throughout her career.
When not perfecting people’s smiles, Kost spends her free time with her baby girl and dog Pucci. She also enjoys working out and the occasional fancy dinner with her husband.
