“Practicing orthodontics allows me to help people in many ways. Some people seeking treatment are unhappy with the position of their teeth and want to straighten them for aesthetic purposes. For these patients, giving them the smile of their dreams gives them self-confidence. Whether their problem is mild or severe, it is so rewarding to see patients walking out of the office feeling happy about their treatment.
“Growing up, my mother was a dental assistant. Frequent visits to her office allowed me to see what an amazing field dentistry is, and I knew from an early age it was what I wanted to do professionally.” – Dr. Prehn
Dr. Sarah Prehn earned her undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology from the State University of New York at New Paltz. She then earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from New York University and her Orthodontic Certificate from Saint Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, NY.
To further her orthodontic knowledge, Dr. Prehn attended conferences and continuing education courses throughout the year. Her most recent coursework includes being certified in lingual braces and completing an advanced fellowship in Invisalign®.
Orthodontics is always changing, and continuing education enables Dr. Prehn to keep current with the field to give the best possible care to her patients. Whether this means learning updates of techniques she already utilizes, or learning about brand new products and procedures that will make it faster and easier to treat her patients, Dr. Prehn is committed to continual education.

When Dr. Prehn is not working, you can usually find her outside going for a run, which she does five days per week.

In addition to her work in the office, Dr. Prehn volunteers her time at local health fairs, performing dental screenings and teaching people about keeping their teeth healthy. She is also an active member in her church, getting to know her neighbors, and giving back to the community.
