Dr. Mijin Choi is a clinical associate professor at the New York University College of Dentistry in the Department of Prosthodontics. She obtained her DDS degree from the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, and completed her certificate in Prosthodontics and a MS degree in Oral Biology at the University of Maryland. She then completed her sub-specialty training in Maxillofacial Prosthetics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. She became a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics in 2004. Dr. Choi is a Fellow of American College of Prosthodontists, Academy of Prosthodontics, Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics and American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics.

Her areas of expertise are in complete oral rehabilitation for patients with missing teeth and management of oral cancer utilizing wide range of simple and complex restorations and prostheses, esthetic restorations, implant prostheses, and removable prostheses. She co-authored the book, "Clinical Cases in Prosthodontics" by Blackwell in 2010, and has written a chapter titled "Chemotherapy and radiation therapy for head and neck cancer" for the Second Edition of Laney's Diagnosis and Treatment in Prosthodontics in 2011.

Dr. Choi is dedicated to providing the postdoctoral residents with the educational processes that emphasize in a patient-centered approach in teaching, research, and oral health care delivery. This educational philosophy is integrated in to the postgraduate curriculum to develop prosthodontic knowledge and clinical skills that address treatments of oral and extraoral problems and promote oral health.
