Jerry L. Halpern, DDS

I am a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon with more than 30 years of experience in the surgical management and treatment of the upper and lower jaws and the nearby structures of the face. I have been at Memorial Sloan Kettering for more than 19 years, both operating and teaching fellows in the maxillofacial prosthetic and dental oncology programs and caring for the special oral and dental needs of cancer patients. I treat benign lesions of the jaws, traumatic injuries, and oral infections, and perform dental and reconstructive jaw surgery.

My special area of expertise is reconstruction in which implants are integrated into bone, especially in patients with defects of the face and jaws related to cancer surgery, traumatic injury, or congenital growth abnormalities. I am also board certified in dental general anesthesia. I work as part of a collaborative team of head and neck surgeons, plastic surgeons, and maxillofacial prosthodontists in planning and placing implants both inside and outside the mouth following cancer surgery. I also provide bone graft reconstruction, if needed, to rebuild defects to support future prostheses.
