Meet the Doctors

Dr. Mark D. Geller – Administrative Director

Mark GellerAs the Administrative Director for The Geller Dental Group, Dr. Mark Geller consults one-on-one with patients to develop individualized treatment plans to meet their needs. Additionally, he oversees day-to-day operations, coordinates the efforts of the professional staff and collaborates with Dr. Randy Geller, his son and partner, to help the practice reach its goals.

Dr. Geller built the practice from the ground up, and continues to steer its future. His decades of experience inspired him to create a patient-friendly layout for the practice’s new state-of-the facility. Knowing that relaxed patients are happy patients, he designed the treatment rooms to allow patients to gaze out onto the courtyard gardens. This serenity keeps patients at ease, and demonstrates a key principle of the Geller philosophy – complete dental care, for mind and body.

Another aspect of comprehensive dental care is the bringing together of multiple specialists and general practitioners under one roof. This desire to serve patients more fully was a driving force behind Dr. Geller’s creation of the new facility and the merger with the Merrick dental practice of Drs. Roger Pflugfelder and Arthur Stanton.

Dr. Geller graduated from New York University College of Dentistry after completing his undergraduate work at SUNY Buffalo. He’s a member of the American Dental Association, American Heart Association, Bellmore Chamber of Commerce, Bellmore Study Group, New York State Dental Association, Nassau County Dental Society and the US Speed Skating Association. Dr. Geller, his family and the practice passionately support many charities and disaster relief efforts through generous donations.

Dr. Geller’s wife, Lee, has served as the practice’s Financial Manager for 25 years. They are both lifelong residents of Bellmore, raising their two sons, Randy Geller, D.D.S., and Brad Geller, M.D., here. Randy is married to Dana Geller, D.P.T., a physical therapist, and Brad, an ophthalmologist, is married to Debora Geller, M.D., an allergy and asthma specialist.

Dr. Mark Geller maintains an active lifestyle boating, skiing, scuba diving, and playing basketball. He continues to incorporate speed skating into his exercise routine, a sport he competed in during his youth, ranking as a National Champion.

Dr. Diana Gabriel – Pediatric and Adolescent Dentist (Board Certified)

Diana GabrielDr. Diana Gabriel joined The Geller Group in 2008 as the Pediatric Dental Specialist. This is a vital role within the practice, preparing young patients for a lifetime of good dental habits. Dr. Gabriel approaches this goal in two ways: by helping children develop solid home care habits for a healthy smile and making each dental experience a positive one through patience, compassionate chairside manner and modern dental techniques, such as digital radiology. The more at ease patients feel about coming in, the more proactive they may be in practicing good hygiene. This makes it possible for her to focus on prevention and education, rather than the less pleasant aspects of a visit, such as “drilling and filling.”

As a mother and caring clinician, Dr. Gabriel knows full well the challenges and rewards of working with patients in their teen and pre-teen years. It’s invigorating, fulfilling work that brings a smile to her face each day.

Her success in our office comes as no surprise, as she demonstrated a keen passion throughout her education. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from New York University. Later, she graduated from the university’s College of Dentistry in 2005 where she ranked at the top of her class and was a member of the Dental Honor Society.
