Meet Dr. Liebman


Susan Liebman, DMD, is a board-certified orthodontist at Brooklyn Heights Orthodontics in Brooklyn Heights, New York City. Her love of changing patients’ smiles and oral health for the better began as a child when she would help her father in his work as an orthodontist. She brings the same enthusiasm to work each day in Brooklyn Heights, forming relationships with her patients as she guides them through treatments with braces, Invisalign®, palate expanders, and more.

After growing up around orthodontics, Dr. Liebman attended Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey graduating cum laude with a degree in Biology and a certificate for Science in Human Affairs. She then went on to receive her DMD from Fairleigh Dickinson School of Dentistry in Teaneck, New Jersey, where she graduated top of her class, earning the award for Exceptional Interest in the Oro-facial complex granted by the American Association of Orthodontists and was inducted into OKU Honorary Dental Society. 

She then went on to continue her postgraduate education at Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in New York City, earning a certificate in orthodontics in 1988 and was asked to return to teach as a clinical instructor and went on to become the first female president of the Orthodontic Alumni Society of Columbia University.

Always a learning enthusiast, Dr. Liebman continues to learn about, stay on top of,  and incorporate the latest developments in her field through memberships with the American Association of Orthodontists,  the Northeastern Society of Orthodontists, the Second District Dental Society, the Brooklyn Dental Study Group, and has been a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics since 2001.

Throughout her more than 25 years as an orthodontist, Dr. Liebman has lectured to various study clubs and dental societies, presided and volunteered at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, and has been an attending at Long Island College Hospital and Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn. She is an active participant in the Dental health Outreach programs to children in her area and a participant in the 9-11 fund, anti-bullying campaigns, and OneLove foundation. 

At Brooklyn Heights Orthodontics, Dr. Liebman brings compassion and empathy to her patients, listening intently to develop personalized treatment approaches with their needs and goals in mind. When she is not practicing orthodontics she can be found exploring the city where she grew up in with her two children, husband, cat and dog.
