One of the best decisions of my life was to specialize in orthodontics, which combines science and art, two of my special interests. I cannot imagine doing anything else!
I am proud to be the only orthodontist in Great Neck who has achieved the rank of Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. It has also been an honor to be following in my father, Dr. Ernest Herman's footsteps. I was also honored as one of the top 25 Women in Dentistry in the United States for 2013. I have attained the status of Premier Provider for my Invisalign patients, which puts me in the top 5% of Invisalign providers in North America. Invisalign is the perfect appliance for adults who want a beautiful smile but are not comfortable wearing the all too visible metal or ceramic braces.
Being married to Dr. Scott Danoff, a prosthodontist, has enhanced my appreciation for interdisciplinary care of ideal treatment for my patients. Being the president of the Great Neck Dental Society for 8 years has also made me realize the importance of continuing education and communication among all specialties of dentistry. I was honored for my participation in "Give Kids a Smile Campaign", which offers children of all economic backgrounds the opportunity to have dental examinations.
I continue to love practicing orthodontics. When you love what you do, you are energized, motivated, excited and want to do your very best. This passion is the foundation of my success. Drs. Laura and Scott Danoff are the proud parents of 5 married children whose little children are the highlight of their lives!
