WE HAVE MORE THAN A GENERATION OF EXPERIENCE
Our office has been a staple in Bay Ridge for three generations. It began by Dr. Henry P. Levy, when the Second World War ended and he returned home and was subsequently joined by Dr. David G. Olsen and Dr. Peter A. Costalos, both Bay Ridge natives. Though still on historic Doctor's Row since the very beginning, we are a progressive practice in a warm and renovated office, and we strive to deliver the best care available today to every patient.
DR. PETER A. COSTALOS
Dr. Peter A. Costalos is Board Certified, a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and has been practicing orthodontics in Bay Ridge since 2003.

He received the Bachelor of Science degree in biology, summa cum laude, from Pace University. He graduated magna cum laude from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts and received the Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. He has completed his post-graduate studies in Orthodontics at Columbia University. Dr. Costalos is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association.

SHARON R, OFFICE MANAGER
I have been a part of Dr. Costalos' team since 2013. I enjoy meeting new patients, helping them and seeing the improvements in their smiles over the course of their treatments. I am a native of Brooklyn, and in my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family.
SANDRA R., PATIENT COORDINATOR
I was raised in Sunset Park, Brooklyn and am the mother of 6 wonderful children. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My goal in life is to be the best, and I believe we all live to serve, and by helping others, we fulfill our own destiny. When you make a positive impact on someone's life, you also make a positive impact on your life. It has been an honor to help serve the community alongside Dr. Costalos and the rest of our team. I am grateful!
URSZULA R., ORTHODONTIC ASSISTANT
I am originally from Poland where I earned my Master's Degree In Marketing and Management from the University of Krakow in 2000. After coming to America with my family, I was introduced to dentistry, when I was employed by a general dentist in Brooklyn and worked as a dental assistant for 8 years. It is my pleasure to be part of Dr. Costalos' team. I love being a part in perfecting patients' smiles, and I appreciate what the process entails. I am also a professional Polish singer and have my own band. On my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and watching my two daughters grow.
COSTA P., CLINICAL COORDINATOR
Growing up in Bay Ridge in a family of six, I have come to a realization that giving a helping hand to others is very important. Having received the Bachelor's Degree in psychology from the College of Staten Island, my main priority in life is to be of help to others, as others have helped me for over twenty years. Working in Dr. Costalos' practice since 2008 has allowed me to accomplish this and to have great relationships with the team and our patients.
