Dr. Momen-Heravi completed a clinical residency and received a Master of Science in Periodontics from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and is a board-certified periodontist.  Dr. Momen-Heravi’s laboratory is focused on understanding the interplay between the immune system and tumors to identify actionable molecular targets for head and neck cancer and other solid tumor treatments. She examines the role of extracellular vesicles/exosomes in metastasis and mediating cellular cross talk, and uses genetic engineering to modify this cross talk and develop therapeutics. Her laboratory also explores the role of innate immunity in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease and its convergence with diabetes and carcinogenesis. Dr. Momen-Heravi takes pride in treating patients and provides service in dental implant surgery and all aspects of oral medicine, periodontics, and periodontal surgical procedures, including soft tissue oral surgeries and bone reconstruction procedures. As the director of an NIH-funded laboratory and researcher in cancer and periodontitis, Dr. Momen-Heravi is passionate about providing care to cancer patients and has a multi-disciplinary approach to oral health rehabilitation. As a clinician-scientist who studies oral diseases, she is dedicated to educating, preventing, and treating patients with periodontal disease using minimally invasive and surgical approaches. At the very core of her dental practice, Dr. Momen-Heravi’s goal is to provide patients with patient-centric personalized and attentive dental care.
