What is your philosophy of dentistry? How do you want patients to feel when they leave your office?
That patients become more knowledgeable about their oral healthcare. Patients are treated in the most respectful and honest manner, I like to feel that I have reduced their anxiety about oral surgery.
What do patients get from your practice that they wouldn’t get somewhere else?
The ability to fully reconstruct a patient from ill-fitting dentures to the comfort, confidence, look and feel of real teeth with dental implants.
What do you like most about dentistry? What do you like least?
I love what I do each and every day. Making patients feel relaxed and comfortable is my goal. The relationship we develop with our patients is so rewarding. My least favorite aspect of dentistry is the dealings with the insurance companies to obtain medically necessary approvals for my patients. It is a constant battle to convince insurance companies to put the patient’s needs above their own.

Patient Review by Melissa R
My son had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled by Dr. First and he was amazing made my son and I feel so welcome and comfortable and walked us through step by step before and after the procedure. The staff went above and beyond assisting me from day 1 and over the next few days on what to do and what to expect. Now I see the reasons why my dentist recommended Suffolk Oral Surgery Associates. They treat you like family! I would recommend anyone who needs oral surgery to go here it was a real pleasure. I would give more than 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
