Dr. Gifford’s interest in dentistry started at a very early age, allowing her to be accepted as a high school senior into a combined degree program starting at Le Moyne College and continuing at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Following graduation, she completed a general practice residency at St. Peter's Hospital in Albany, NY. After several years of private practice experience, she purchased the practice of Dr. Arthur Elfenbein, and later moved the practice into her dream office, equipped with the latest technology.
Dr. Gifford is committed to learning the latest techniques for her patients through extensive participation in continuing education. She is a graduate of the renowned Kois Center for Dental Education, focusing on complex treatment planning and creating lifetime smiles for her patients. She also holds Mastership Certification within the World Clinical Laser Institute and offers pain-free laser dentistry for some procedures.
Dr. Gifford is a lifelong resident of Bainbridge and is honored to provide exceptional dental care to a patient base that includes many family, friends, and neighbors. Dr. Gifford, her husband Jeff, and their son Carter split their time between Bainbridge and their home in the Saratoga Springs, NY area.
