Meet Us Magda Iorio, Dr Odont, RDH

Dr. Iorio attended dental school at the Universidad Metropolitana in Barranquilla, Colombia receiving her Doctorate in Odontology in 1993. This degree is equivalent to the American DDS or DMD degree. After graduation, she worked in her hometown with underprivileged groups providing dental care and oral hygiene education for one year. She left her home country coming to New York City in 1994 where she completed a dental hygiene degree shortly after arriving in the USA, graduating with honors.

Dr. Iorio practiced with Dr. Indech from 1998 to 2014 providing expert dental hygiene care for his patients. She took a leave from the practice for a few years but has recently returned in a new role to provide high level clinical support to Dr. Indech and his patients undergoing diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care for gum disease and other periodontal conditions. She is bilingual and really enjoys working with Spanish speaking patients to help them get the dental care they need with a warm, caring and nurturing touch.

Dr. Iorio is passionate about periodontics, laser treatment for gum disease and the connections between oral health and whole-body health. She is a member of the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health. Throughout her career in dentistry, she has attended many continuing education programs to keep current with the advances in dentistry and beyond. Once again, she is thrilled to call Desert Ridge Periodontics her home away from home and we are excited to welcome her back.

In her spare time, Dr. Iorio enjoys spending time with her family, taking hikes with her dog, dancing and drawing.
