Founder/Owner & Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

Emanuela Corielli, DDS

Dr. Emanuela Corielli was born and raised in Milano, Italy. She received her medical degree from The University of Milano Medical school and graduated summa cum laude. Although, medicine and its complexity, was exciting and challenging, she felt her knowledge and personality would be better served in the dental profession. This feeling was confirmed after spending time at the pediatric dental office of her friend. She witnessed children completely trusting and sharing little pieces of their life. She realized her career path would be most fulfilling as a pediatric dentist.

She met Dr. Steven Moss, the Chair of Pediatric Dentistry at New York University, while he was attending a conference in Milano. After speaking at length together, he told her, if she was willing to go to New York, he would be happy to have her in his post graduate dental program. Upon arriving in New York, she discovered she would need to attend dental school before being able to attend this pediatric post graduate program. So that is what she did.

Dr. Corielli received her dental degree from New York University and has spent the past 18 years working as a pediatric dentist. She loves the profession; her patients are “her children” and she knows and understands them well.

Dr. Corielli teaches at New York University, Department of Pediatric Dentistry and Weil Cornell Medical College, Department of Oral Surgery, Pediatric Dental Clinic. She enjoys training future dentists and giving back to the profession and the community.

Dr. Corielli is honored to be in the position to take care of children. When she started Bright Healthy Smiles, she wanted to create a special place for children and their families. A happy dental home where prevention was paramount and care, when necessary, was delivered with love and understanding of every child’s physiological needs and unique family make up. She wanted to create an atmosphere of trust and happiness for every family.

Today Bright Healthy Smiles has an amazing team of doctors, hygienists, assistants, front desk coordinators as well as a nutritionist. Every member of our team completely understands our mission, they love the children and enjoy their work with them. Dr. Corielli is extremely proud of her team.
