Our Staff

Our staff is dedicated to ensuring every patient has a good experience

The staff at Jerusalem Dental Center for Children is made up of dentists and assistants trained in the U.S. and Israel—as well as a handful of support members who are ready to help schedule appointments, handle billing, and answer questions.

Here’s what a few staff members have to say about the JDCC:

“We try to keep our fees down as much as possible because so many of our patients have limited incomes.
At the same time, they get a lot for their dollar.”

– Judy Yehezkel, Administrator

“Every moment here is valuable. There are so many people who are in pain and who need care.”
– Dr. David Bloch, Dentist

“We have a high standard of dentistry and an atmosphere that makes our patients feel like they are at home,
like they are among family.”

– Dr. Zev M. Rothkoff, Former Medical Director
