Just blocks away from the American Museum of Natural History, and the lush, serene grounds of Central Park, Dr. Vardy's office truly encompasses the meaning behind her practice - providing successful orthodontic treatment in a tremendously warm and caring environment, and allowing every patient to feel like a member of her immediate family. Dr. Vardy genuinely loves her work as an orthodontist. Her many years of dedication and commitment to orthodontics and her community have allowed her to establish the ideal practice she operates today. Dr. Vardy and her team are excited to welcome you to the practice, and look forward to helping you achieve the beautiful, healthy smile that you've always wanted. Committed to Excellence in Orthodontics Dr. Vardy is a professional in every sense of the word. From the very beginning, she dedicated her time and energy to perfecting her skills in dentistry to become one of the leading orthodontic providers in New York. Her determination to provide her patients with the highest quality never falters. Dr. Vardy began her dental school training at Harvard University's School of Dental Medicine, and then transferred to New York University College of Dentistry so that she could be close to ailing family members. She obtained her dental degree at NYUCD and remained there to complete her Post Doctoral Specialty Training in Orthodontics in 1993. Continuing education is an important part of Dr. Vardy's commitment to orthodontics. There are always new treatments and techniques being developed, and she strives to offer the most advanced treatment options, which include, but are not limited to: Invisalign® OrthoCAD™ Incognito™ In-Ovation® Invisalign Teen™ In-Ovation® C by GAC Vivera Retainers Achievements and Awards In 1993, Dr. Vardy was awarded the Ron Lorber Achievement Award as chosen by an elite committee of orthodontists and based on her exceptional level of skill, commitment and energy as an orthodontist.
