Meet the Staff

Walter Sabolboro, D.D.S.

I have been proudly practicing dentistry in my hometown of Queens for more than a decade. I was born in Manhattan and my family moved to Queens when I was 2. I was inspired by 6 years of braces (yes, 6!) to become a dentist. Since becoming a dentist I’ve been inspired by the most world renowned clinicians and teachers to be the best dentist I could be.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude in Chemistry from Hunter College in 1999. I went on the School of Dental Medicine at University at Buffalo and graduated in 2004. Shortly after, I took over a 25 year established dental practice which is known today as Forest Park Dental.

I love the ability to help people with my science and art. I’m very fortunate that I am involved in a profession that is always advancing and striving hard to deliver the best results through research and technology.

In my personal time I enjoy working on the board for the Glendale Kiwanis, playing music, exercising and spending time with my family.
