Dr. Michael Stern, DMD
Dr. Michael Stern grew up in Brooklyn, and like his brother, he knew he wanted to go into a dental or medical profession at an early age. He was drawn to oral and maxillofacial surgery because of the skills and knowledge covered by the specialty. Through his training, he gained expertise in oral surgery, anesthesia, and general health, allowing him to treat a wide range of oral, facial, and systemic conditions. Dr. Stern has been practicing for over 10 years, and he enjoys solving problems for his patients. The oral and maxillofacial specialty gives him the ability to treat more complex and challenging conditions, and Dr. Stern greatly enjoys providing patients with excellent quality care at Oral Surgery Group.

It's never fun having a tooth extracted or oral surgery done, but when it's necessary you want a surgeon who is businesslike, empathetic, professional and personable. And you want one who does the procedure with the least amount of pain and discomfort possible. Michael Stern fits those criteria better than any like professional I've ever dealt with (four extractions, one oral surgery). I recommend him and his staff highly.
Thank you, Gregory, for recommending our practice. You were an absolute pleasure to work with. You have absolutely made our day. Reviews like yours make us so thankful to be able to do what we love and help people in our community.

Friendly, professional and he makes you feel confident and relaxed. He'll answer any questions or concerns you may have. He was recommended to me from another dentist and it was a good choice

I went to the East Brunswick location for removal of my wisdom teeth. It is my first surgery as an adult and I must say I was terrified, I am not one for pain or anesthesia. Walking into their office this morning they could sense my hesitation with doing the procedure but they calmed me down, made me realize I would be just fine and took good care of me. They were very gentle and explained to me everything they were doing. Doctor Michael Stern and his team were so professional from start to fini

“No one can say they enjoyed a trip to the dentist, let alone getting a tooth pulled. However, the Oral Surgery group went out of their way to make this experience as easy, painless and comforting as humanly possible. Dr.Michael Stern was outstanding, explaining the procedure start to finish. He took away any anxiety I had, talking me through the procedure, he made the entire experience as quick and comfortable as possible. I will go no where else, because I am confident they are the best!

I got an appointment the day after I called. Dr. Stern and the staff were great! They checked up on me the day after I had my tooth pulled!

“I couldn't be happier with the service provided at the Oral Surgery Group. Dr. Stern, Jenn and his entire staff made my 11 year old feel extremely calm and safe while having four teeth extracted. Dr Stern walked him through every step so he knew exactly what to expect with no surprises. Very friendly and made what could have been a stressful experience, extremely simple! Thank you and I would highly recommend this group.”
