Jean Furuyama, DDS

Jean Gaffney Furuyama graduated from NYUCD where she was awarded the prize for outstanding woman student.  After a general practice residency at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, she opened her practice from scratch in 1981 and was, until March, 2010 the sole owner of a high tech, fee for service group practice in Manhattan, NY.

Active in the NY Dental Society, she has served on the peer review committee for several years, is a past member of the Board of Directors of the NY County component, and is presently on the State Board of Dentistry, where she is an active member of the Office of Professional Discipline.   She is past national president of the American Association of Women Dentists, and an active member of the American Association of Implant Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry, and a Vice President of the American Association for the Study of Orthodontics,   She is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, as well as two honorary societies:  The Academy of Dentistry International and the American College of Dentists.  She speaks fluent Japanese and is Immediate Past President of the Japanese Medical Society of America.

Dr. Furuyama has lectured at the Chicago Midwinter, the Greater New York, the Greater Long Island, and online for Dentaltown.  She is proud to be the first owner of the Biolase laser in Manhattan.  Her passion is high tech dentistry and she is a strong supporter of general dentists being able to practice beyond the scope of just “drilling and filling”.  She places her own implants as well as restores them, and was one of the first general dentists to become certified by Invisalign. Her training in fixed orthodontics was through an orthodontic program sponsored by Long Island University which was held three days a month for two years.  After the sale of her general practice in 2010, Dr. Furuyama now limits her practice to Cerec, dentures, implants, and orthodontics.  She is also a consultant for a Japanese chemical company, Mitsui Chemical, which recently purchased Kulzer and Dentca.  She is in charge of conducting the beta testing for a new cad cam denture
that uses Dentca’s design technology.
