Meet Dr. Bahn Yah Moon

Creating Beautiful Smiles for your Life

Meet Dr. Bahn Yah Moon
"I love being an orthodontist because I like the way it makes you think. Orthodontics is like my favorite subject, math. Because it requires you to figure out the answer, not just memorize formulas. You need to know the “why” to get to a functional occlusion and a nice smile. I love making others happy and enjoy the team I work with. They are like family to me."

Background

Dr. Moon grew up in Staten Island, New York – the daughter of two physicians. She attended Stuyvesant High School and went on to Cornell University for her undergraduate studies. She then received her doctorate at New York University College of Dentistry and earned her post-doctoral certificate in orthodontics from Stony Brook University.

She lives on Long Island, New York, and is happily married to her husband, Sung. And she is the proud mother of two children, Melody and Connor. When she is not working, she loves to be with her family and friends. She enjoys music, traveling, and improving her golf game.
