Dr. Lawrence MichnickDentist
Following in his grandfather and father's footsteps, Dr. Lawrence Michnick graduated with honors (Omicron Kappa Upsilon) in 1993 from the NYU School of Dentistry. After dental school, he completed an intensive year-long residency program with concentrations in implants, restorative dentistry, endodontics, periodontics, and oral surgery at Nassau County Medical Center. The residency program also included education in treating the anxious or nervous patient. This includes taking patients who perhaps had an unhappy dental experience in the past and creating an environment leading toward more comfortable experiences.
Dr. Michnick relocated to Ocean City 20 years ago. As an active member of the community, he has held all offices of the Ocean City/Berlin Rotary Club and is a past President of Temple Bat Yam. Professionally, he is a member of the American Dental Association and the Eastern Shore Dental Society. Dr. Michnick has also attended several courses at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies with emphasis on advanced functional aesthetics and neuromuscular dentistry. Dr. Michnick enjoys spending his time off with his wife Deanne and their two children, exploring all this area has to offer.
