Hi Andrew, I don't live in the city, but hubby worked there 4 years and we lived in NJ. I would start by checking out your ins. if you have any dental/ortho, and if you have to be "in a certain network". If you get a list of network drs. then call those that are closest to you and question them about their knowledge. I hope this helps. If you don't have a network plan, then check out the drs. some of your friends use and then talk to them about celiac and decide from there. Remember you are paying them for services. You are their boss! :) Good Luck!

I just noticed that I seem to be having dental enamel loss - my teeth have become translucent. I too am now looking for a dentist that would know how to treat dental enamel hypoplasia secondary to celiac disease, in the New York City area. The Columbia Celiac Disease Center recommended someone in Connecticut - too far for me! If you have any names, please let me know!

In the meantime, any suggestions on what to do about the enamel loss would be very appreciated!
