Patients have a lot to smile about at Dr. Daniel Akkaway’s
office—especially when they look in the mirror after their braces are
removed. “It’s my favorite moment,” says Dr. Akkaway. “Their eyes
light up when they see their new smile.”
As a sole practitioner, Dr. Akkaway is involved in the entire ortho-
dontic process: diagnosis, treatment planning and patient care for
beautiful long-term results. In his state-of-the-art offices, he and
his dedicated staff share a philosophy of treating patients as fam-
ily. “I treat my patients as if they were my own children,” says the
father of two.
Dr. Akkaway graduated first in his class from Columbia University
College of Dental Medicine, and pursued his specialty training at
Saint Barnabas Hospital in New York City. He remains active in
numerous dental organizations and in Smiles Change Lives, providing care for children in need. He has also achieved Invisalign® Elite
Provider status, which is shared by only 5 percent of Invisalign providers worldwide.
“I enjoy the relationships I develop with my patients and watching their confidence grow as a result of their new smile,” he says.
“A beautiful smile helps build self-esteem and I feel fortunate to be
able to be part of this transformation.”

about saving teeth—the focus of his specialty, endodontics. He is
honored by the confidence his colleagues have placed in both him
and his devoted team, who are often praised for providing exceptional care and creating positive experiences for their patients.
Whether diagnosing oral pain, or performing root canals or root
end surgeries, Dr. Appelbaum applies cutting-edge technology in his
practice. Patients are treated with the aid of a surgical microscope to
ensure the best outcomes and 3-D imaging is used to diagnose difficult cases. “We spend time educating our patients about their treatment options and discuss their expectations,” says Dr. Appelbaum.
“We want to reassure them that we have their best interest at
heart and they can trust that we’ll take care of them.”
A desire to improve people’s lives drove Dr. Appelbaum to a
career in dentistry, which began at UMDNJ where he received his
dental degree and advanced training in endodontics. The attention
to detail he gained from his eight years as a civil engineer and his
love of working with patients has proven to be the right formula for
establishing a practice brimming with expertise, commitment and
