Dr. Jaime Bremnes
Dr. Bremnes had a deep passion for dentistry starting from a young age. Unfortunate dental cavities led to a rather fortunate situation. Regular visits to the dentist fostered a strong bond between Dr. Bremnes and her own dentist. This bond led to a summer job dental assisting and a long-time mentorship.
After graduating early with honors from Hofstra University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Biology and minor in Fine Art, Dr. Bremnes embarked upon a Doctorate Degree in Dental Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. During her last year, Dr. Bremnes was accepted into the elite honors clinic at the University of Pennsylvania (UPENN) and worked at a highly independent level, a privilege not generally given to students.
After being away for 4 years, Dr. Bremnes decided to complete her General Practice Residency program closer to home at St. Charles Hospital. It is at St. Charles Hospital where she became proficient at management of dental emergencies and working with the developmentally disabled as well as the geriatric population.
After completing residency, Dr. Bremnes worked in private practice in Manhattan on the Upper West Side. As the Frank Sinatra song goes, “New York, New York, If I can make it there I can make it anywhere..”, Dr. Bremnes decided to take the skills and experience she honed throughout her vast training and practice in Manhattan to Garden City.
Garden City holds a special place in her heart as it is where she was
born along with her Mother, Grandfather, and Great ancestors. Her strong family ties and fond childhood memories drew her and her husband back into town where they have lived since 2012. The practice is named Whitehall Dental Arts to pay homage to the Street that Dr. Bremnes grew up on which warm childhood memories were made and cherished to this day. Dr. Bremnes is pleased to offer premier dental care to not only her patients but her neighbors.
In the winter of 2014 Dr Bremnes and Whitehall Dental Arts opened a 2nd location in the Brynant Park Area of Manhattan, offering the same level of services and personal attention as in the Garden City location.
Dr. Nadine Ninivaggi
Dr. Ninivaggi first discovered her passion for dentistry when she obtained a position as a dental assistant. During her time there, she met a patient suffering from an eating disorder, whose stomach acid not only severely eroded away her teeth, but her self-esteem as well. Once Dr. Ninivaggi began to witness the substantial improvement in the patient’s confidence as her teeth were restored, she was immediately hooked. She realized dentistry would allow her improve the well-being of others by putting not only healthy, but beautiful smiles on people’s faces.
After graduating from Iona College in New Rochelle with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, Dr. Ninivaggi moved to Boston, Massachusetts to obtain a Doctorate Degree in Dental Medicine at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. During her spare time, Dr. Ninivaggi enjoyed working as a Clinical Teaching Assistant, lending a helping hand and guiding her classmates with dental procedures and patient care.
Although Boston treated her well, Dr. Ninivaggi comes from a large Italian family, and if her family is in New York, her heart is in New York. After dental school, she moved back to New York to be closer to family and complete her General Practice Residency Program at NYU Winthrop University Hospital. Working in a hospital setting gave Dr. Ninivaggi the opportunity to treat medically complex patients and manage dental emergencies such as trauma and infections. Dr. Ninivaggi served a second year of residency as Chief Resident which allowed her to enhance her leadership skills and focus on full mouth rehabilitation and restoring implants.
Dr. Ninivaggi is grateful to now be a part of the Whitehall Dental Arts team and looks forward to working alongside Dr. Bremnes to serve patients of all ages with outstanding patient care.
