LIC Blogs - We'll Be Adding One More

Updated: May 23

There are only two dedicated LIC blogs on the internet with the rest of the information coming from news sources. A couple of businesses in the area have dedicated a handful of pages towards LIC content but we believe that this space is still under served. With the amount of residents in this neighborhood, we expected that there would've been more coverage about the events in the community. We believe that Long Island City deserves one more to the list of LIC blogs.


Therefore, we will be allocating a portion of our resources towards blogging about LIC. Yes, this will be a LIC blog by a LIC dentist. Who would've thought that huh? With that said, our blog will still be predominantly about dentistry and maybe 5% or so towards the Long Island City community. We'll write about it if we feel that we have something useful to add!



MoMA PS1 in Long Island City

After all, this IS our community and we at 1311 Jackson Ave Dental were born with the purpose of serving the Long Island City community, whether that be through dentistry or other means. So don't be too surprised if you see some articles popping up here and there about LIC from this dentist in long island city.


If you haven't had time to check out the MoMA PS1 yet, you definitely should make some time to go. There is a lot of artwork housed over multiple floors. They also have a large courtyard where they host events and live music. Definitely one of the main attractions in the neighborhood. We definitely recommend to all of our patients to check it out since it is literally two blocks away from our office.



List of LIC blogs

This post was meant to serve as an official announcement but before we forget, here is a list of the two dedicated LIC blogs, which you should check out and support!


It seems like lictalk is still somewhat consistently posting approximately once a week but the court square blog hasn't made a post since December of 2020. Hopefully blogging isn't a dying art since there are still tons of artists in LIC. In fact, there is an entire website and organization dedicated to lic artists. Well, we do hope that the court square blog comes back to life sometime soon or we'll be down to just one posting about this neighborhood...


Well that's it for today, thank you everyone from your long island city dentist!

About the author: Dr David Chen, DDS

Hello, I'm Dr Chen and I'm an actively practicing dentist in Long Island City, NY. I graduated from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in 2016 but prior to going to dental school I was already working in the dental field. It's been more than a decade since I first got to know dentistry and let me tell you, time flies by quickly. Since then I've developed a fondness for writing, which is how this all got started!

The best thing to do is to go in person to see your dentist for an examination and consultation so that you can receive the best care possible.

The purpose of all of this oral health information is to encourage you to see your dentist and to inform you of what you may expect during your visit. Due to the unfortunate nature of dentistry, there isn't really any true home remedies that will get rid of dental problems. Roughly 99.99% of them require in-person intervention by a healthcare professional.
