Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dentistry

About Us

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.

From routine dental care on teeth and gums to innovative arthroscopic surgery on jaw joints and major reconstructive facial surgery, our specific areas of expertise include:

  • General Dentistry — Preventative, restorative, cosmetic and special care
  • implant dentistry
  • Endodontics (root canal procedures)
  • Periodontics  Surgical and non-surgical care of the gums and supporting tissues
  • Complex prosthodontics
  • Pediatric and special care dentistry
  • Oral and maxillofacial medicine and pathology
  • Dental rehabilitation under general anesthesia
  • Diagnosis and management of atypical head, face, and oral pain syndromes
  • Non-surgical care of temporomandibular joint disorders
  • Surgical management — arthroscopic and replacement — of temporomandibular joint derangements and disorders
  • Surgical management for benign diseases of the mouth and jaws. We also team with Head & Neck Surgeons and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons for management of malignant diseases of the mouth and jaws.
  • Surgical management — orthognathic, corrective jaw surgery, and reconstructive surgery, for congenital and growth deformities for patients of all ages, neonates and infants through teenagers and adults
  • Surgical management of facial trauma
  • Surgical management  Total Prosthetic Replacement of the Temporomandibular Joint for problems such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and severe Osteoarthritis, tumors, and trauma.

With experts in each of these areas, patients are assured continuity of care for any level of oral concern. 

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.
