About Dr. Koster
Her colleagues describe her as a perfectionist with an unparalleled eye for detail. Her patients describe her as warm, caring, and attentive. It’s always Dr. Koster’s goal to provide outstanding treatment for her patients as well as to educate them on their own dental health while exploring all treatment options.
Dr. Koster is a graduate of The State University at Stony Brook Dental School where she also earned her undergraduate degree. After graduating, she chose to complete a General Practice Residency at the Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, NY in order to give her time to treat an underserved community and gain more clinical skills. Her early career found her at a number of prestigious Manhattan practices where she sharpened her skills in general and cosmetic dentistry. There she continued to develop her friendly and gentle approach to patient care and perfect the use of the latest dental technologies and treatments.
Throughout her career, she has been an active member of the ADA, New York State Dental Association, Nassau County Dental Society, and the New York County Dental Association, committed to learning and continuing her dental education. Her dedication, passion, and top-notch patient reviews have earned her the title of “Top New York Dentist” since 2016.
" The doctors and staff at this office are amazing! Some of the nicest people you can hope to meet, and the dental work that I received was phenomenal. The office is inviting, and the care that is taken to make sure things are done correctly is top tier. Great experience. "

"Dr. Koster has done extensive dental work for me over the years. She is both kind and caring. She is thorough in her work and takes the time to explain in detail what she is doing. Her compassionate nature has a calming effect during her work. "
" Both my daughter and I have been patients of Dr Koster's and we couldn't be happier. She has a gentle demeanor and is super thorough. She shows genuine concern for our teeth and gives us advice on what to keep doing/do more of to keep them healthy. Her office staff are really nice too. I am grateful to be in their good hands. "

Education, health, and prevention are the foundation of Dr. Koster’s approach to general dentistry. Regular cleanings, exams, and oral cancer screenings aid in the prevention of cavities, painful toothaches, gum disease, and other diseases of the teeth and gums. With a conservative approach, we help patients avoid unnecessary procedures that are not essential for their dental health.
Our strong cosmetic focus allows patients to achieve smiles that are both healthy and beautiful. Our cosmetic work includes offering patients the choice of white composite or porcelain fillings, porcelain veneers or crowns, as well as teeth straightening with Invisalign. We also provide a variety of gentle teeth whitening treatments like ZOOM in-house whitening and custom take-home whitening trays.
Our office welcomes the young and the young at heart. Kids, teens, young people, and adults receive care tailored to their individual and unique needs. We create meaningful and lasting relationships with patients through education and a commitment to comfortable and gentle care. We can work around your busy schedule to make sure your whole family gets the care they need.
