Dr. Michelle Sarno grew up in San Diego, California but moved to New York City for dental school after earning her undergraduate Bachelors of Science in Biology degree at San Diego State University. Through the Army Health Professions Scholarship Program she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in 2005. Upon graduation, she was commissioned as a general dentist Officer in the United States Army Dental Corps serving tours in the U.S. and Iraq through 2010. Serving the Soldier with dental procedures that kept them pain free to preserve their fighting strength, prompted her calling to specialize in Endodontics. She was accepted into the U.S. Army Advanced Education Program in Endodontics at Fort Gordon, Georgia and received her certificate in 2012. Honorably discharged from the Army in 2015, she has since been in clinical private practice.
Dr. Sarno is a member of the American Association of Endodontics and is a scientific advisory board member for the Journal of Endodontics. She has been a volunteer provider in multiple Dental Mission of Mercy community events in Georgia and Oklahoma. She is a life long learner dedicated to providing individualized, quality, and compassionate care to all of her patients.
Dr. Sarno is a proud military wife to Dr. Walter Dimalanta, and a proud mom of 2 boys. Outside the office, you will find her making memories with her family while traveling, exploring, and trying new things.
