Zev Schulhof, DMD, MD, is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon as well as a physician, and is an attending surgeon at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Dr. Schulhof grew up on Staten Island, New York, and was interested in medicine from a young age.
As a child, he wanted to be become a pediatrician, but as a teen and in his early 20’s while volunteering as an EMT, he witnessed an oral surgery emergency and became inspired by the practice. His passion for oral surgery became deeply rooted when Dr. Schulhof was in dental school performing his first oral surgery in the OR — he fell in love with the way oral surgery combines dentistry with medicine and with the artistry of working with one’s hands to improve people’s lives. To this day, the most rewarding part of his work as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is to be able to actively make a difference in the lives of his patients. At North Jersey Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Schulhof enjoys being able to treat each patient like family, spending as much time with them as they need to feel comfortable and at ease, and always going above and beyond to deliver the best possible results. He is proud to work with a team that loves what they do — this positive attitude radiates to the patients, who often remain patients for life, bringing in their family members. Dr. Schulhof would like his patients to know that he and Dr. Friedman consistently stay on the cusp of technology — two to three years ahead of what other practices are doing — and have the skills and ability to help patients that have been told that they aren’t candidates for dental implants — taking the time to make it happen for them safely and beautifully.
Dr. Schulhof publishes articles regularly for national medical publications and lectures nationally on various topics, including cosmetic surgery, oral pathology, oral and maxillofacial reconstruction and bone grafting, as well as implantology.
