Being a Brooklyn orthodontist has some serious perks, and when Dr. Khanna started his Park Slope orthodontic practice, Fresh Orthodontics, he instantly fell in love with the neighborhood. The area is a vibrant, well-rounded place to live, work and play. There are tons of reasons why Fresh Orthodontics is thrilled to call Brooklyn home.
Here are the 10 top reasons we love working in Park Slope:
- Our Park Slope orthodontic patients and their families are super interesting! Considering the area is a haven for creativity, we meet some awesome, unique people in our office, and every day is a new adventure
- We get to work with really talented doctors. Our referring dentists in Park Slope have serious skills, and we’ve developed some excellent relationships.
- There’s tons of stuff to do with your kids in Park Slope. There’s a reason why the stroller jokes keep on coming, and it’s because it’s such a family-friendly neighborhood. Whether you hit up Gymboree and let the little ones frolic with friends, shop for superhero accessories for a good cause at Superhero Supply Co. or enjoy a book at a local story time, there’s always something going on for the whole family and some of it’s even free.
- There are farmer’s markets galore in the vicinity. Yes, some people might poke fun at our obsession with all things organic, hand-harvested or artisanal, but hey, easy access to healthy, fresh, delicious food and produce is a huge plus. Try Park Slope’s Down to Earth Farmers Market and the nearby Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket.
- Speaking of food, we have some killer restaurants in Park Slope. Whether you want something fast like a delicious, delicious burger from Shake Shack or prefer to sit down and enjoy hearty Italian from al di la Trattoria or brunch at Juventino, the dining scene has you covered. Not to mention vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free folks and everyone in between will find cuisine to suit their needs.
- There’s tons of green space in the form of parks, hence the name Park Slope. We’re big fans of the music-themed Harmony Playground (Dr. Khanna has been known to rock out!). The Zucker Natural Exploration area in Prospect Park is pretty cool too though.
- The coffee is amazing. Park Slope is home to a slew of independent coffee shops that offer the tastiest options for getting your caffeine fix. We highly recommend Gorilla Coffee or the Park Slope outpost of Café Grumpy.
- It’s beautiful. Park Slope is known for its tree-lined streets and gorgeous brownstones. We never get tired of the landscape. Just take a walk down 3rd Street toward Sixth Avenue and see for yourself.
- Not only is Park Slope gorgeous (see previous point), it’s also full of history. Architecture buffs in particular will be enthralled with the area. The Park Slope Historic District consists of stunning, ornate buildings and brownstones mostly built between 1862 and 1920.
- Bookstores! It took a lot of schooling to become a Park Slope orthodontist, and it’s no secret Dr. Khanna spent his fair share of time in the library and still enjoys kicking back with a good book. Park Slope is perfect for literature lovers. We could spend hours browsing the beloved Community Bookstore, one of Brooklyn’s oldest independent bookstores.
