Meet Our Dentists
While Dr. Diora is out on maternity leave …
We appreciate your understanding this spring and early summer as Dr. Diora takes maternity leave from Colony Square Dental Associates. During her absence, Dr. Hochberg and two of his colleagues, Dr. Grollman and Dr. Tourial, are helping out. They are on hand to provide examinations for patients being seen for their dental hygiene visit and for dental care as needed. It’s our pleasure to have these distinguished dentists with us while Dr. Diora is home taking care of her little ones.

While caring for his own patients, and to date, Dr. Grollman serves as a volunteer at the Ben Massell dental clinic in Atlanta, offering those less fortunate his expertise and providing care to enhance the lives of many.
