Steven J. Tunick, DMD
I am a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon with over 30 years of experience in my specialty. The scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery includes the surgical management and treatment of the upper and lower jaws and the related structures of the face.
At Memorial Sloan Kettering, oral surgery includes treatment of benign lesions of the jaws and dentally related oral infections; surgery to reconstruct the jaw or to treat traumatic injuries to the mouth or jaw; and dentoalveolar surgery. My primary area of interest and expertise is in osseointegrated implant reconstruction of defects of the face and jaws. I have been at Memorial Sloan Kettering for more than twenty-five years, as both an operating surgeon and a teacher in the Maxillofacial Prosthodontic and Dental Oncology Fellowships. I am also a Senior Attending at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital- Weil Cornell Medical Center, in the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
I have lectured nationally and internationally on implant reconstruction in head and neck cancer patients, and have also produced an instructional video, “Intravenous Conscious Sedation in the Oral& Maxillofacial Surgery Practice. I am board certified in both Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental General Anesthesia.
In addition to my clinical and academic activities, I am very involved with organized dentistry, both on the state and national levels. On the local level, I am former Chairman of the Professional Liability Claims Committee of the New York County Dental Society and am past Chairman of the Ethics Committee of the New York County Dental Society.
