Dr. Rafay Hussain, DDS
Dr. Rafay Hussain completed his training in pediatric dental medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where he served as chief resident. He continues to teach and mentor Mount Sinai’s dental residents as a clinical instructor. Dr. Hussain first encountered the joy of treating children during the early years of his career, after he completed his residency in advanced education in general dentistry at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York.
A skilled and experienced practitioner, he has cared for children with a wide array of dental needs, ranging from routine check-ups to complex emergencies. Dr. Hussain attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where he received his undergraduate and dental degrees.
Although Dr. Hussain grew up in Toronto, Canada, he has called Williamsburg home since 2007. He and his dog Swayze are neighborhood fixtures and can often be found strolling through McCarren Park or wandering their favorite blocks of Graham Avenue. If you see them, say hi!
His favorite superhero is the Incredible Hulk, his favorite color is orange, and he won’t get mad if you eat dessert first (as long as you brush and floss right after).
