Though she was already a partner at a prestigious dental practice in Union, Dr. Ramya Narayanan wanted to give back to her community in some way. So instead of painting smiley faces over all the neighborhood’s stop signs, she decided to start a private dental practice in her hometown of Jersey City. Today at Strong Roots, she oversees a team that includes two general dentists and a periodontist, and together they provide a slew of general and cosmetic services ranging from crowns and root canals to teeth whitening.
As the leader of a modern office, Dr. Narayanan makes sure she and her staff remain up to snuff on the industry’s latest techniques by consistently attending lectures and conventions. In keeping with the practice's mission to better the community, the office is also working toward becoming 100% paperless, and is situated just steps from the Grove St. PATH Station, making it easily accessible to those who take public transportation.
