Dr. Semanoff, in his own words…
“I have a strong background in oral and maxillofacial trauma. During my residency at Nassau University Medical Center, which is a Level I Trauma Center, I worked with many patients who were frightened that their facial trauma would permanently disfigure them. As an oral surgeon, my number one goal is to reconstruct the jaw and other oral structures in a way that restores proper function.
However, my other priority is to restore my patients’ aesthetic appearance. I believe that both goals can be compatible and that both are necessary for the long-term wellness and quality of life of my patients.
Whenever I work with a new patient, I like to ask them about their concerns so that I can be sure to address every single one of them. I believe that patient education and collaborative treatment planning is critical for the outcome of the surgery and the overall recovery process. I want my patients to know that I’m always here for them and that they shouldn’t hesitate to speak up when they have a question or concern.”
