Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
With nine full time physicians and some 35 voluntary ones, the Division of Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a major academic-based program providing care that ranges from general dentistry to advanced surgical restorative and reconstructive procedures. We also offer two programs that are among only a few in the New York region: a dedicated children's dentistry facility and a dental center specializing in the care of patients with HIV disease. At Weill Cornell Medicine, we’re proud to be leaders in providing care as world-class New York City-based oral surgeons.
