Dr. Igowsky has placed more than 3,000 pediatric zirconia crowns and has traveled the world lecturing on a variety of topics critical to innovative dentistry. She’s involved in several hospital craniofacial, oncology and special-needs teams and helps run the nonprofit children’s group CustomFit. Despite the challenges this year has brought, Dr. Igowsky’s 18-year-old practice had its highest-ever production this June.
Why She Became a Dentist:
Dr. Igowsky followed in the footsteps of her sister, a pediatric dentist who is seven years her senior. She joined her sister in 2010; together, the two have steadily built the practice into what it is today.
Tool She Can’t Live Without:
Single-tooth anesthesia. “The Wand,” as it’s known, enables her to give a pain-free injection to her young patients.
Impact of the Pandemic:
“I never could have imagined living and working through a pandemic. I did my best to be open and honest with my staff from the beginning. That meant sharing my worries and fears as well as trying to stay positive.”
