Meet Dr. Linda Leon
 


     Dr. Linda Leon is a Board-Certified Periodontist, who has been in practice in Monroe for 20 years.  She works full-time in only one office, so she is readily available to help you.  

     The Monroe-Woodbury School system gave her an excellent start.  She graduated in 1974, near the very top of her class.  

     Dr. Leon then attended Syracuse University.  After just 3 years of college, she was accepted to Fairleigh Dickinson Dental School.  She graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson Dental School in 1981.  This was followed by a General Practice Residency at Waterbury Hospital in Connecticut, further improving her skills while treating the less-fortunate.  

     After working as a general dentist for a few years, Dr. Leon returned to school to specialize.  She chose Periodontics because it is literally the "foundation" of dentistry.  She attended New Jersey Dental School and completed the Post-Graduate Specialty Program in Periodontics in 1985.  

     Dr. Leon became Board-Certified in 1989.  (otherwise known as being a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontics).  This is a long and difficult process, involving written and oral testing by world-famous Periodontists.   Currently, less than 50% of Periodontists have gone the extra steps to become Board-Certified, so she is very proud of this accomplishment.
