Leyla Abdulhay, DMD
Dr. Leyla Abdulhay earned her undergraduate degree from Bryn Mawr College, graduating Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and biochemistry. An avid fan of anything science related, she became the first dentist in her family by graduating from the University of Pennsylvania—one of the top dental schools in the world. She continued her training with a general practice residency at St. Luke’s Hospital and Health Network, where she focused on dental implants, dental emergencies, pediatrics, and oral surgery. She completed anesthesia, oral surgery, emergency medicine, and family medicine rotations. Her hospital training has come in very handy at times!
With over 14 years of experience, she enjoys working together with patients in Gloucester City, NJ to discover the best course of action, clinically and financially, to arrive at a pain-free, beautiful, and healthy result. She strives to provide comfortable dentistry, combined with cosmetically appealing and high-quality dentistry intended to last for years.
During her time practicing in other locations prior to moving to South Jersey, she was selected among the Top Select Dentists by her peers in Lehigh Valley, PA. Dr. Abdulhay has also lectured with the Nobel Biocare implant company to provide implant training courses for other dentists. In addition to receiving excellent continuing education training through the American Dental Association, the American Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and other implant and dental organizations, she has participated in charitable causes to give dentistry back to the community, most notably “MOM in PA”. Dr. Abdulhay currently maintains both New Jersey and Pennsylvania licenses.
In her free time, Dr. Abdulhay loves exploring the local brunch and restaurant spots in South Jersey. She loves spending time with her fiancé, new baby niece and nephew, and friends and family locally. Her favorite recent discoveries are the Palmyra Nature Preserve and Turning Point for brunch, but she’s always open to trying out new places and making new connections and friends! Dr. Abdulhay is looking forward to getting to know the Gloucester City community better as time goes on!
