Daniil Payziyev DDS

Dr. Daniil Payziyev attended the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and completed his residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx. As a native to New York, Dr. Payziyev chose to practice in Massapequa to bring “comfort dentistry” to the community, to provide pain-free and relaxed dental visits to every patient he sees. In addition to earning his dental degree, he has completed extensive advanced dentistry courses in surgery and esthetics, as well as in periodontics to learn modern techniques in digital smile design and minimally-invasive WaterLase laser protocols. He also received the Gamma Pi Delta award in restorative dentistry, and an award of excellence in prosthodontics during residency training.

Dr. Payziyev is passionate about dentistry and helping change people’s health and lives. As dentistry evolves and additional research shows how oral health relates to general well-being, he makes it his mission to spark and educate patients on this connection to help them achieve a healthy body and smile. Dr. Payziyev also believes in customizing treatment plans based on each individual’s needs, desires and goals.

“Because oral health is a very personal area, I make sure to work with every patient so that we may come to a goal that allows them to be happy and healthy.”
