New Column Focuses On Dental Health

Posted .

Introducing: Dr. Salina Suy

To the wonderful people of the Mohawk Valley: Welcome to your new source of oral health care education straight from one of your local dentists — me!

This is an introductory article explaining what the column will entail for the future and I hope you enjoy its concept and reap the benefits from the information provided here in the future.

For those who do not know me, please let me introduce myself.

My name is Salina Suy and I am a general dentist in the Mohawk Valley practicing in Utica. Before, I was in private practice.

I was a hospital dentist at Faxton St. Luke and received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine.

I also proudly have a Bachelors of Science degree in exercise science from the University at Buffalo School of Public Health and Health Professions. Along with being a dentist, I am also an advocate for general health and wellness and l love fitness!

I was fortunate enough to be featured in this newspaper previously and even more fortunate now to contribute with this new column.

I look forward to providing basic knowledge of the many mysteries of oral health care so that you can have a better understanding of the dental sciences. Find out the cost of invisalign before you go for the procedure.

My goals are to increase awareness of the importance of oral health and its link to systemic health, help explain different procedures, types of specialties and I will be taking direct questions straight from the readers as well. Talk to an expert if you are also thinking of getting gold braces.

That’s right: Ask me something you have always wanted to ask — no question is silly! Questions should be submitted to

Please join me for next month’s column where the first topic will be “Oral Hygiene 101: The basic recommendations for a brighter, healthier you.
