While grateful for her experience in general dentistry, Dr. Finkel was still predominantly interested in the field of orthodontics and decided to pursue the specialty and returned to Columbia University for her orthodontic residency where she learned the latest techniques and treatment advances for patients of all ages. There, Dr. Finkel trained extensively in all aspects of orthodontics and earned her Masters in Science and certificate in orthodontics.

Dr. Finkel's journey is characterized by a consistent commitment to learning and growth, cultivating a genuine passion for perfecting her practice of orthodontics. Additionally, her background knowledge as a general dentist allows her the unique ability to practice her specialty while simultaneously appreciating the bigger, multidisciplinary picture. Her journey continues at River Vale Orthodontics, using her artful eye, extraordinary bedside manner and academic excellence to deliver a future of radiant smiles and unyielding passion!

Dr. Finkel resides in Tenafly with her husband, Alex – who is also a general dentist in Manhattan – and their three kids: Ava, Oliver and Henry. In their free time, when not discussing teeth, they love traveling and creating memorable adventures together as a family. Dr. Finkel looks forward to meeting you, creating beautiful, healthy smiles and happy patients!
