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 a dedicated children's dentistry facility staffed by Pediatric Dentists, one of only a few in the New York region. At Weill Cornell Medicine, we’re proud to be leaders in providing care as world-class New York City-based oral surgeons.
Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in a Leading NYC Academic Medical Center
We have recently completed a major renovation that has resulted in an expanded, state-of-the-art, 4,000-square-foot facility that can better serve our patients, provide a more comfortable environment and enhance our residency education and training experience.
From routine dental care on teeth and gums to advanced dental surgery, including innovative arthroscopic surgery on jaw joints and major reconstructive facial surgery, we provide a full range of dental and oral medical care.
Our specific areas of expertise include:
Dr. David Behrman, head of Weill Cornell Medicine’s dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery program, explains what patients can expect when they come to his team for care.
"Dr Reese is easy to talk to and listened to all of the difficulties that I have been having with my jaw pain. I was very happy with my visit."
"I had surgery on my upper and lower jaw, as well as on my chin in December 2020. Never having any kind of surgery prior, I was incredibly nervous. Dr. Behrman answered all my questions with some light humor but at the same time, did not sugar coat anything, which of course, put my mind at ease. To say that I am happy with the results is an understatement. It was life changing. I cannot thank Dr Behrman, his whole team and NY Presbyterian enough for the excellent care I received."
"She was very friendly, quick with my 14 month old, and answered all my many questions. Would definitely recommend!"
