Dr. Joana N. Forsea DDS
Dr. Forsea is deeply committed to caring for her patients and improving their overall well-being and health. To her, orthodontics is the vehicle to improving the patient’s overall health. She looks at the function of the occlusion, the bite, the facial balance, and even the mental health of the patient. She is sensitive to the struggles that patients may experience during treatment and creates a custom treatment to minimize any negatives.

Assistant Clinical Professor, Columbia University
Columbia Orthodontics Residency
Columbia School of Dental Medicine
After 20 years in practice, Dr. Kastin still loves orthodontics! “When you work with patient’s month after month, you start to form a bond. The team and I start to look forward to seeing our patients as much as I like to think they look forward to their visits.” Helping change smiles while forming long lasting friendships with patients and families is what Dr. Kastin enjoys most about his profession. He also loves the art of orthodontics, as much as the science. He believes a smile is made up of a thousand little details and believes it is his job to make each one perfect
