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, a long-time mentorship and eventually a career choice.
After graduating 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. She continued her post doctoral studies by completing a General Practice Residency program 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.
Upon completing residency, Dr. Bremnes enjoyed working in private practice in Manhattan and Long Island and opened her own practice in 2013.
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, and where they're now raising two children. 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 has invested in taking continuing education in many aspects of restorative dentistry. Dr. Bremnes has enjoyed traveling far and wide to pursue learning at The Spears Center, The Bioclear Learning Center, as well as Cosmedent. She also belongs to numerous study clubs and dental organizations. In 2019 Dr. Bremnes was named “40 under 40” by the leading dental lifestyle magazine, Incisal Edge. She was very honored to be named one of the top 40 general dentists under 40 in the nation.
When not practicing dentistry or attending courses, Dr. Bremnes enjoys spending time with her three young children and husband. Visiting the beach and cooking are two of her favorite pastimes.
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.

After finishing her one- year general practice residency, she was chosen to stay as Chief Resident. Dr. Hill then completed the two- year advanced prosthetic and implant fellowship also at North Shore University Hospital.
Enjoying the surgical aspect of dentistry and the study of Periodontics, she decided to further her education for an additional three years. Dr. Hill received her Certificate in Periodontics from the Veterans Affairs New York Harbor Healthcare System.
Dr. Hill offers a comprehensive range of periodontal and implant services. She is certified in Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) and Laser Assisted Peri-implantitis Procedure (LAPIP).

Dr. Raysa Perez
Dr. Raysa Perez first discovered her passion for dentistry fairly early in life, when she started a position as a dental assistant at the age of 17 in her home country, the Dominican Republic. That summer, her mother was involved in a serious car accident, and it affected her mother’s confidence and self-esteem. As her mother underwent treatment, Dr. Perez was both a witness and participant to the magical transformation that returned the smile to her mother’s face. It was during this time when she realized that dentistry was the profession she wanted to pursue. It was an extraordinary place where art and science converged to change lives.
In 2004 she completed the dental program and was honored to work side by side with the peers she had admired, in the office where her journey began.
Dr. Perez moved to the United States to begin a new journey; the passion to continue her career required resilience as she adapted to a new culture and language. She was determined to remain a dentist, but knew she would need to earn accreditation all over again in her new home country. She began to work as a full-time employee in New York. She acquired clinical experience as a dental assistant with Dr. Jaime Bremnes as she continued to work on her command of the English language.
After an arduous period of studying, she passed the national board exams. She was subsequently accepted to Columbia University, where she completed her residency at NY Presbyterian Hospital. She is delighted to continue her journey as a dentist with Dr. Jaime Bremnes and the wonderful team at Whitehall Dental Arts.
In her personal time, Dr. Perez enjoys spending time with her family and friends and is an active member in her church community. She loves to spend time reading the Bible, and is thankful that she can fulfill her calling to serve others through her professional role as a dentist.
