Ross Chavkin, DDS

Oral Surgeon Flushing & Melville NY

My name is Dr. Ross Chavkin. I was born and raised in Plainview, NY. I received my undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies from the State University of Buffalo and my Doctorate in Dental Surgery degree from School of Dental Medicine at Buffalo in 2000. I did my residency at SUNY Downstate/ Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. I joined Colacicco and Tulman in 2006. Since then the practice has taken on a new name and new look. We have really modernized our technology and the  way we run the offices.

I belong to a number of organizations such as Suffolk County Dental Society, NYSOMS, and the ADA. My professional career has been devoted to all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, with special interests in the treatment of bone augmentation and implantology. To keep abreast of the latest developments in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, I have always exceeded the continuing education requirements of New York.

My goal as an oral surgeon is to make my patients comfortable and try to make a visit to my office as enjoyable as possible. My staff and I know the anxiety most people have before a visit to our office. The best feeling is when a patient tells me that “wasn’t as bad as I expected.”
