Dr. Joseph Kuhn, a prominent member of Catholic Church, established the original dental office.


Dr. Relkin joined Dr. Kuhn and expanded to three locations throughout Manhattan. His patient list included Broadway notables such as Ethel Merman and Van Johnson.


Dr Roy Wolf condensed the three practices at 1097 Second Ave. Dr. Wolff was a dynamic Dentist and gave much back to his community in Bay Ridge Brooklyn.


Dr. Steven Kafko joined the practice, following his three-year residency in the USAF. Dr. Kafko became a partner in 1982.


Dr. Jack Kaminsky joined the practice.


Drs. Kafko and Kaminsky formed a partnership, known as Kafko & Kaminsky DDS, which lasted until 1 May 13, 2013.


The office moved to the current location at 209 East 56th Street, New York NY 10022. The architectural design of our offices enabled us to win a third place award for health care facilities by the The American Institute of Architects New York State. We were published in the Journal of Dental Economics as the office of the month for the entire country.


Redesign of the office enabled us to bring in new specialists to our practice, Drs. Ben Ifraimov, cosmetic dentist, and Steven Lipner, root canal specialist. Teaming with the dentists of such caliber enabled us to provide even better dental care and a wider range of services to our patients.


Drs. Ben Ahn and Jin Wang joined 209 NYC Dental. With them, periodontal treatment, oral surgery, implant dentistry and Invisalign finalized the list of the dental services provided in our office making 209 NYC Dental truly the multi-specialty dental practice we are today.

Although the names have changed, and the equipment is ultra modern the precepts of placing patients first, “treating people not just teeth” still ring true today.
