Meet Dr. Elyse Kerchner

Dr. Elyse was born and raised in Upstate, NY and fell head over heels for Manhattan during her doctorate studies at NYU. She is currently residing in the East Village and travels to True Dental Care in Jersey City because she loves our mission here! She is passionate about providing a positive and fun experience to her young patients and loves tailoring her dental techniques based on the latest scientific breakthroughs. She takes great joy in seeing a child’s confidence grow at each visit!

The Professional Side:

Dr. Elyse attended Binghamton University where she earned her B.A. before receiving her doctorate in Dental Surgery at New York University College of Dentistry. After completing her general practice training, she went on to receive two years of specialty training in pediatrics at Maimonides Medical Center. One of her passions is integrating oral health with general health and she has attended multiple conferences and symposiums to deepen her skills. Dr. Elyse has extensive knowledge, training and experience on tongue and lip tie releases and their effect on feeding, speech, with proper growth and development.

Dr. Elyse is a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, member of the American Laser Study Club  and served as an attending Pediatric Dental Surgeon at St. Mary’s Hospital in Troy, NY. She values building relationships by communicating openly and actively listening to both patient and parent.

The Personal Side:

In her free time, Dr. Elyse enjoys cooking, yoga, skiing, and traveling to new and amazing places.  One of her favorite ways to destress is by sipping a nice cup of tea while cuddling up with a great book and enjoying chocolate chip cookies from her favorite NYC bakery, Levain. She also likes to embroider baby onesies which we find to be epic! She is currently seeking book and tea flavor recommendations so please feel free to share your favorites with her.
