The Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dentistry at Weill Cornell Medicine is a major academic-based program providing care that ranges from general dentistry to advanced surgical restorative and reconstructive procedures.
The division, based in New York City, provides care to healthy and medically compromised individuals in outpatient, inpatient, and Emergency Department settings.

The Division also offers two programs that are unique in the New York region: a dedicated children's dentistry facility staffed by Pediatric Dentists, and a dental center specializing in the care of patients with HIV disease staffed by Restorative Dentists.
Care is provided by our academic faculty and our residents participating in the General Dentistry and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery programs, who often work with our diverse community-based and voluntary faculty.
The Division also has two Advanced Education Residency Programs: a PGY-1 and PGY-2 General Practice Residency in Dentistry and a 4-Year Certificate Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Residency.
