Meet Dr. Gilman

Brian A. Gilman, DDS

My father, Dr. Albert Gilman, founded The Gilman Orthodontic practice in 1964. As I personally have been in practice for over 30 years, some of our current patients are the grandchildren of our original patient family! Few professions or occupations enable one to establish and maintain such long-term relationships within their community. The beautiful smiles that we create are only part of the gratifying experience.


I have attained the following educational certificates:

  • BA, Johns Hopkins University, 1978
  • DDS, Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery, 1982
  • Certificate of Orthodontics, Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery, 1983
  • American Board of Orthodontics Board Certification, 1996
  • Invisalign Preferred Provider

Continuing Education

I am regularly involved in dental continuing education as pertaining to dentistry in general, and orthodontics in particular. Courses I have taken include orthodontic technique and theory, practice management, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements, CPR training, and infection control.

I am active in the following professional organizations:

  • American Association of Orthodontists
  • American Board of Orthodontics — Board Certified Diplomate
  • Northeastern Society of Orthodontists
  • Columbia University Alumni Society
  • American Dental Association
  • NY State Dental Association
  • Suffolk County Dental Society

Orthodontic Experience

I have practiced orthodontics since 1983, and attained American Board of Orthodontics Diplomate status in 1996. I truly love what I do. Beautiful, handsome smiles and enhanced confidence and self-esteem are only the beginning! Some orthodontic treatment is rendered over several years, and our patients become part of our office family. We have the privilege and opportunity to share in our patients' life events and joyous occasions.

Family Life

meet our team

I grew up in Glen Cove, NY, and have lived in East Northport since 1996. My lovely wife is Dr. Bonnie L. Yellin, with whom I share the practice. We have three wonderful children named Jordana, Jonathan, and Benjamin. In my spare time, I enjoy running, weight training, and bicycling. I love all the outdoor activities that Long Island has to offer, including spending time at the beach, hiking, and nature walks.
