She stays up-to-date with the latest advances in dentistry through regular dental conferences, continuing education courses, and seminars.
Dr. Tipograph enjoys working with patients of all ages, and has extensive experience providing holistic dental treatment to children and infants. She provides a wide range of dental services while maintaining a holistic and natural approach in all her treatments, including ozone therapy, the use of non-toxic and biocompatible materials, and natural remedies for effective healing and pain relief.
Dr. Tipograph dedicates her time to many organizations, including the Jewish Social Service Agency (JSSA) where she provides dental treatment to Holocaust survivors, and Mission of Mercy where she provides dental care and oral health education to the local underserved community. She enjoys traveling overseas to volunteer with Kids International Dental Services (KIDS) and HealthCare International (HCI).
