Zayda Sanchez, DMD
Orthodontics is in my blood. Coming from a family of orthodontists, it only seemed natural to follow into a field that makes such a positive difference in people’s lives. Through the art and science of orthodontic treatment, I am able to make my patients look beautiful and improve their self-esteem. I love what I do because I make patients' quality of life better.
I love to be around children. It brightens my day to be able to serve them and improve the way they look and function. I am very dedicated to my profession, to my patients, and to my team. At the end of the day, we all leave smiling.
Education and Continuing Education

- Certificate in Orthodontics – Columbia University

To stay current with the newest and most effective orthodontic treatments available, I attend the major meetings of the AAO and NESO, and participate in courses through the New York Dental Society. While these meetings and courses are mandatory for state licensure, I believe they are an integral aspect of my goal to provide the best care to my patients.

Outside the Office
A native of Naguabo, Puerto Rico, I now reside in Demarest, NJ, with my husband and our two beautiful soccer-crazed sons. We also have a Guinea pig, a Leopard gecko, and a coral fish tank to keep the boys entertained. Most of my day-to-day free time is spent at soccer games and practices, but when we get the chance, we love going on family vacations. If I can find a quiet moment, I also enjoy reading.
