Dr. Lena Varone

At the intersection of art and science, Dr. Lena Varone stands out as a pioneering cosmetic dentist whose meticulous approach to smile design is as informed by her studio art background as by her medical expertise. A Doctorate of Dental Medicine graduate from Nova Southeastern University, where she finished at the top of her class with honors, Dr. Varone brings a rich background in biology and an intense passion for studio art from her studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Numerous distinctions, including the KOMET USA Dental Photography award and an acceptance into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon honorary society, match her academic prowess.

Dr. Varone sees each patient’s face as a unique canvas, her artistic eye enhancing her hand-eye coordination and attention to detail. This perspective is crucial as she designs smiles that do not just fill a space but fit a face. In one notable transformation, Dr. Varone expertly expanded a patient’s smile from six mismatched veneers to a harmonious set of ten, perfectly aligned with the individual’s facial features, softening their expression and enhancing their overall appearance through comprehensive facial smile design. This is just one of many transformations Dr. Varone has meticulously crafted, with a portfolio ready to showcase additional remarkable cases.

Beyond the technical expertise, Dr. Varone’s approach to dental care is deeply influenced by her hobbies and personal interests. Whether she is mentoring others, enjoying the vibrant NYC dining scene, or exploring the great outdoors, her life outside the office is filled with activities that feed into her work’s energy and creativity. Her dedication to gymnastics not only keeps her physically fit but also mentally sharp, reflecting her commitment to precision in both her personal and professional life.

Dr. Varone is recognized for making each dental appointment an enjoyable and reassuring experience. Understanding that many patients may feel anxious about dental visits, she infuses her sessions with enthusiasm, approachability, and a soothing touch of lavender, creating a tranquil environment that turns routine visits into relaxed, engaging experiences. Her comprehensive expertise in porcelain veneers, composite bonding, Invisalign® and therapeutic Botox® make her a guardian of both dental health and esthetics.

An active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, with a Fellowship in International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics, Dr. Varone is continuously updating her practice with the latest technological advancements. This commitment ensures that each patient receives the most comprehensive and forward-thinking dental care available today.

Residing on the Upper East Side, Dr. Varone looks forward to welcoming new and returning patients. Her mission is clear: to provide the highest quality of dental care in a warm and welcoming environment, ensuring every patient leaves with a smile designed not just to impress, but to express their unique personality and style.
