Dr. Keith Lustman is a well trained and highly regarded Maxillofacial and Oral Surgeon in NYC recruited to our practice after he completed his Residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Campus. Before his career in oral surgery, Keith graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Yeshiva University and with Honors from the University of Toronto, School of Dental Medicine to earn his DDS.
Keith completed a General Dental Practice Residency at New York Presbyterian Hospital/ Weill Cornell Medical Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He studied all aspects of dentistry including periodontal surgery, implant restoration, and endodontic therapy at the post-graduate level. This experience has given him a unique perspective in communicating with both restorative dentists and other dental specialists on caring for patients and optimizing treatment plans. He was then offered a grant to continue the research he had begun at these centers as a Clinical Research Fellow at the National Institute of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, where he participated in several projects and papers that have been submitted for peer review and publication. Upon completing his OMS training, he received the Distinguished House Staff Award from NYPH/WCMC, an honor given to only a few select physicians in the hospital.
Keith is a Diplomate of the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology and a candidate for board certification by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and the New York State Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. He is certified in Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Advanced Trauma Life Support, and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
In addition to his work on the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, Keith has established a niche as the “kids’ oral surgeon” as well. Dr. Lustman grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and now resides in Manhattan. He enjoys traveling, writing, basketball, squash, and spinning.
