Dr. Steven Katz combines the best elements of modern dentistry with the warmth, concern, and personal touch that were the hallmarks of dentistry in the “old days.” He cares about each of his patients, not simply in terms of their oral health, but in every regard. He truly wants his patients to feel their best, both physically and emotionally, and understands how fundamental having a beautiful smile is to that. Dr. Katz established his dental practice in 1984, with a clear goal to provide the residents of Long Island with cosmetic and general dentistry of an exceptional standard. His ambition was to give each of his patients better care than they had ever before received, and for nearly three decades, he has been doing precisely that. Reflective of his achievements in the field of dentistry, Dr. Katz has been awarded Mastership by the Academy of General Dentistry, the highest designation that a general dentist can receive from the esteemed organization. He is one of the few Masters in the state of New York. Dr. Katz further distinguishes himself by being one of the rare dentists who, in addition to providing general and sedation dentistry of the highest quality, is also a gifted and experienced cosmetic dentist. He performs a full range of surgical procedures, including the placement of dental implants, which allows him to accept cases that other dentists might have to refer out. To ensure that each of his patients is able to receive the care they need, comfortably and without anxiety, Dr. Katz offers sedation dentistry to augment his warm, compassionate manner and gentle touch. In preparation for his dental career, Dr. Katz earned degrees from Columbia University and the Washington University School of Dental Medicine. He underwent advanced training in oral surgery and served as Chief Resident in Dentistry at North Shore University Hospital, where he continues to function as an Attending Dentist and Instructor. He routinely lectures to his fellow dentists on a variety of topics, passing on the knowledge, insight, and unique perspectives on dentistry that he has developed throughout his career. He has also served as team dentist for the New York Jets professional football team. When he is not serving his patients, Dr. Katz enjoys spending time with his wife, Regina, to whom he has been happily married since 1979. The couple has three beautiful daughters. In his spare time, he participates in numerous sports and is highly involved in the community of Roslyn Heights, where he makes his home.

Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?

0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
