Dr. Mary Sayegh
Dr. Mary Sayegh is a board certified Pediatric Dentist. She grew up in Westchester, New York and always knew she wanted to pursue a career in healthcare. She graduated from the State University of New York at Purchase where she received her Bachelors degree with a major in biology and a minor in Chemistry.

She was also inducted into the Robert R. Andrews Honors Society as well as the Honos Civicus Society for her contributions in the areas of oral health to local communities. Dr. Mary has been passionate about her involvement with the Special Olympic organization since the age of 16 when she began volunteering with her church and focused her dental school research on the caries experience seen in adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. She hopes to merge this passion with her dental career and strives to treat all children.
Dr. Mary went on to complete a two-year residency in Pediatric Dentistry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in New York.
