Sybil PadavathilDMD

Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Sybil grew up in sunny South Florida before she became a Long Island resident.  She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Florida and immediately moved to the Northeast to start her dental education.  She graduated from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2012 and relocated to New York to begin her general dentistry career.  After completing her residency at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn and working for one year as a general dentist, Dr. Sybil decided that her passion was working with children.  She then completed a two-year residency in pediatric dentistry at Woodhull Hospital.  She believes in approaching each child based on their specific needs and making their dental experience as easy (and fun!) as possible.
