Dr. Mary Ellen Nesnay


Dr. Mary Ellen Nesnay grew up in Bayonne, NJ with her parents and 4 siblings. She earned her B.S. degree from Villanova University and went on to earn her D.M.D from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1987. As she completed her dental education, Dr. Nesnay dreamed of opening her own practice one day.

Understanding that pediatric dentistry includes treating many special needs children, Dr. Nesnay completed a one year fellowship at Stony Brook Dental School where she learned techniques to better treat these children.

She then went on to complete her two-year Pediatric Dental specialty training at Schneider Children’s Hospital. Following her dream, she opened her first office on Park Boulevard in Massapequa Park in 1990. As the practice quickly grew, she moved the practice to a larger facility in Massapequa in 1997. By word of mouth, the reputation of the practice spread and continued to grow. In 2009, That Broadway Smile’s movie theater themed office opened to the delight of all the patients and their parents!

Dr. Nesnay is married with two children. In her spare time, Dr. Nesnay enjoys going to the gym, reading, interior design, playing with her dogs, spending time with her family and traveling.
