Age:

37

Name of Practice:

Segal and Iyer Orthodontics

Specialty:

Orthodontics

Education:

DDS, Harvard University; Orthodontics, University of Michigan


Why She Was Nominated

Iyer’s Ivy League pedigree and position with New York University’s clinical orthodontic teaching facility speak volumes, but what really sets her and her partner, G. Ross Segal (see page 76), apart is their practice’s fun atmosphere and commitment to overall health (she hikes and played rugby in college; Segal trains in MMA fighting).

Inspiration

Iyer’s orthodontist changed her life, and she entered the profession to do the same for others.

Favorite Part of the Profession

Her partnership with Dr. Segal. “Two minds are greater than one,” she says. “I think about that often when we bounce ideas off each other and talk about cases.”

Exciting New Trend

3D technology and scanned impressions, as opposed to actual molds.
