About Dr. Stern
Dr. Michael Stern grew up in Brooklyn, and like his brother, he knew he wanted to go into a dental or medical profession at an early age. He was drawn to oral and maxillofacial surgery because of the skills and knowledge covered by the specialty. Through his training, he gained expertise in oral surgery, anesthesia, and general health, allowing him to treat a wide range of oral, facial, and systemic conditions.
Dr. Stern has been practicing for over 10 years, and he enjoys solving problems for his patients. The oral and maxillofacial specialty gives him the ability to treat more complex and challenging conditions, and Dr. Stern greatly enjoys providing patients with excellent quality care at Oral Surgery Group.
After finishing his undergraduate studies in biology at Binghamton University, Dr. Stern went on to the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, where he earned his Doctorate of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD). Immediately after dental school, he went on to a four-year oral surgery residency program.
Dr. Stern completed his residency at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital. During his residency, he gained experience in extractions, bone grafting, implants, trauma, pathology, and reconstruction. After his residency, he started working at Oral Surgery Group in 2005.
Dr. Stern chose to become board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery after completing his required residency training. This board certification required Dr. Stern to complete an extensive exam testing his knowledge of the comprehensive oral and maxillofacial specialty.
