Sylvia Arsuaga, DMD

Sylvia Arsuaga

Dr. Arsuaga, originally from Puerto Rico, joins us after completing the Advanced Specialty Education Program in Periodontics at the Stony Brook University in Long Island, New York. Dr. Arsuaga started her extensive dental education after completing with high honors a Bachelors Degree in Science. Then she was accepted at the School of Dental Medicine of the University of Puerto Rico where she completed her DMD. Dr. Arsuaga decided to pursue her passion for Periodontics after 2 years of General Practice Residency at the University Hospital of The University of Puerto Rico. There she gained experience in hospital dentistry, emergencies and comprehensive treatment for medically compromised patients. After being accepted in the Periodontics residency at Stony Brook University, she quickly developed an interest in the management of soft tissue, implants as well as, regenerative procedures around periodontally involved teeth and edentulous ridges. But not everything is surgery, Dr. Arsuaga believes in a true and honest doctor-patient to be the key for a successful treatment. Also, Dr. Arsuaga is fluent in Spanish which helps facilitate the communication between Spanish speaking patients. Dr. Arsuaga is board certified.

In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her husband and dog, get together with friends and listen to good music.

We’re Here To Make You Smile

“Everyone in the office was incredibly kind and helpful during my visit today! I unexpectedly needed to get two fillings and the Doctor made it a priority to fit me into her already busy schedule and I didn’t even need to wait. Everyone from the hygenists to receptionist staff was kind and answered all my questions to make sure I was comfortable throughout my visit. I am so happy I found Woodside Dental Care, thank you!”

“Ok first of I wanna say thank you so much to Dr. Montes, she’s the only dentist ever I felt so comfortable going back too. Not only she does an amazing job but she also makes you feel comfortable and relax for any procedures that needed to be done. This place is nice and clean and the staff are awesome! To Carla thank you so much for explaining me everything and made me feel like I’m just talking to a friend instead of being a patient. Thank you guys again!!”

“Very caring and knowledgeable doctors and staff. They have a beautiful office and state of the art equipment. Unlike other general dental practices, they can do most procedures in house, so you don’t have to be sent to another office. Really nice people and they make you feel at home, and well taken care of! :)”

“It was a very refreshing experience to visit a dentist office that actually takes the time for each of their patients. Dr. Melvin Velasquez & his staff are amazing!
Today I got my second-time Zoom Whitening with Karla & Paola were awesome, they really did a great job & took care of me every minute during the process. I came out with a bright smile. This Dentist office is always extremely clean & they are up to date with their technology and equipment. Highly recommended.”
