The Kaufman Family
Having been raised by a family of dentists and surgeons, Dr. Elan Kaufman has been involved in the field of dentistry since before he could even walk.
Dr. Michael Koifman, a retired dentist, and consultant for Kaufman Children’s Dental Hospital and his wife, Janna, an accomplished Musician and Pianist, made ‘Aliya’ (Immigration to Israel) in 1972. After spending almost twenty years in Israel, the family moved to Seattle, Washington, where Janna’s family lived for over twenty years. After several years in the Pacific Northwest, the family moved permanently to Brooklyn, New York.
After working in Haifa, Israel as a dentist for over twenty years, Dr. Michael Koifman had to go back to school to get his American License in Dentistry. Having graduated with Honors at the top of his class from the world-renowned New York University College of Dentistry, Dr. Koifman practiced in Manhattan and Brooklyn for another fifteen years before retiring from practicing dentistry. Even after his retirement, Dr. Koifman never lost his passion for the field of dentistry, and medicine in general, and remained involved in the establishment of the Kaufman Children’s Dental Hospital. Although it is evident that the Kaufman Sons have all followed in their father’s footsteps, anyone who knows the family well will attest that their mother, Janna was the true motivating factor in their children’s chosen careers in medicine and dentistry.
Dr. Michael and Mrs. Koifman reside in Brooklyn and enjoy spending their time with their grandchildren.
