Patient Introduction

Welcome to New York Oral and Facial Surgery. Dr. Hershkin or Dr. Merriam and his staff are committed to a higher standard of care for their patients and work very hard to make your surgical experience as easy as possible.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires up to 6 additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Hershkin and Merriam manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Drs. Hershkin and Merriam practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

Our staff is trained in assisting with intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.

Thank you for choosing New York Oral and Facial Surgery for your surgical needs!
