Meet Dr. Laskis
Dr. Laskis is originally from Ontario, Canada and studied neuroscience at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Being passionate about dentistry, however, meant getting the best education possible. That meant NYU’s world renowned College of Dentistry. Dr. Laskis graduated from New York University College of Dentistry in 2006. At NYU, she also studied at the Larry Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry. It is the nation’s first comprehensive program in an academic dental center to train dentists in the growing field of aesthetic dentistry.
While attending NYU, Dr. Laskis treated many patients while working the university’s dental clinic, including many patients with complex medical histories. She received the Dr. Bernard E. Rudner Memorial Award for providing superior performance in comprehensive oral care.
Dr. Laskis’ class at NYU was the first class to have university based instruction on Invisalign.
Dr. Laskis founded her own private practice, Parkview Dental of Westfield, in 2011. Although her practice grew rapidly, her parents, brother and sister all live in the Fountain Hills area, so with her second child on the way, it made sense to move here in 2013.
Dr. Laskis one of only two 2017 Invisalign® Preferred Providers in Fountain Hills and the only dentist in the Fountain Hills area partnered directly with AvaDent®, the world’s #1 digital dentures so you know you will get the best results.
I was drawn to dentistry because it allows me to help people and get them out of pain. This compassion, when combined with the mental rigor of dentistry, in many ways make family dentistry an ideal job. Many of my patients wind up being friends. I also love being able to make people feel better about their appearance. I will not do any work on a patient that I would not do on my own family. – Dr. Laskis
Enjoying Life in Arizona
Married since 2007, Dr. Laskis has two young children. Her son Laz loves to hike, explore and play minecraft. Her young daughter Audrey enjoys swimming, singing the songs from the movie “Moana” and making people laugh. In addition to staying busy with her kids, Dr. Laskis also enjoys rooting for her hockey team the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Arizona Cardinals.
During the summer, you’ll find Dr. Laskis and her family relaxing up at their family’s cabin up north and in the winter out for hikes and biking in the Fountain Hills area.
