7 Reasons to Choose Dr. Benjamin Kur and Westchester Oral & Maxillofacial Associates
When you’re faced with the need for oral surgery, anxiety over your choice of oral surgeon is the last thing you want. At Westchester Oral & Maxillofacial Associates, we think we’re one of the best, most anxiety-free choices you can make for your procedure. Here are seven reasons why.
We’ve got the experience and expertise to do the job right.
Dr. Benjamin Kur has been practicing in the field of oral surgery for a decade, and he is also an active researcher and educator in the field. He is a graduate of Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center, and he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at SUNY Stonybrook. In addition to his practice at Westchester Oral & Maxillofacial Associates, he is Staff Surgeon at New York Medical College/Westchester Medical Center, Montefiore Medical Center, and LIJ/NSUH.
Dr. Kur is dedicated not just to his own patients, but to advancing the field as a whole, too. He has served as a Clinical Instructor at Montefiore Medical Center, and he is Faculty Associate Professor of Surgery at New York Medical College/Westchester Medical Center. His research interests, on which he regularly presents at major surgical conferences, include jaw reconstruction for implant placement, pediatric maxillofacial surgery, maxillofacial trauma, and corrective jaw surgery.
Our entire practice is built on a foundation of compassion.
Our experience has taught us the importance of treating our patients with compassion and warmth. The time before, during, and after an oral surgery procedure is stressful, and we know that it’s so much easier when you go through it in the hands of people you trust are looking out for you.
All of our staff has as their primary mission making our patients feel respected, listened to, understood, and cared for. We will guide you through the entire process, from your first consultation to the procedure itself and throughout your post-operative care. At no time will you feel that you’re going through it alone.
We understand all your options, and we’ll help you understand them, too.
We know that no one wants to go through a surgical procedure if they don’t have to, and we’ll help you to explore all of your options. We won’t push you toward a surgical procedure you don’t need, and we’ll work to help you understand the choices available to you, both surgical and non-surgical. We’ll make sure that you have all the information you need to make the best decision.
We’ll make your procedure as comfortable for you as possible.
When you do have to have a surgical procedure, we’ll make it as painless as it can possibly be. Depending on the procedure, you’ll benefit from expertly administered local anesthetic or IV sedation/general anesthesia so that you won’t have to worry about pain during the procedure, and you can rest assured that our staff’s experience will help to minimize your discomfort.
We’ll also make sure that you know exactly what to do during the post-operative period to make your recovery quick and comfortable.
We’ll keep working for you even after the procedure.
Proper post-operative care is crucial for a speedy recovery and the long-term success of your procedure, so we know that our job isn’t done when you walk out the door after surgery. We will follow up to make sure that you are recovering without complications, and if you need anything to keep your recovery on track, we’ll make sure that you know how and where to get it.
We make paying for the procedure painless, too.
We don’t want financial considerations to stand in the way of your getting the care you need, so we offer a range of flexible payment options. We are in-network for many dental insurance policies, and we will help in any way we can to ensure proper reimbursement for the services you need. We also accept major credit cards and Flex Spending cards. If none of these options work for you, we can make arrangements with you before your procedure to set up a monthly payment plan.
We are part of your community.
One of the reasons that we’re so focused on the compassionate care of our patients is that our patients are our friends and neighbors. Dr. Kur lives with his family in Westchester County, and you’re likely to find him fly fishing in the area when he’s not in the office. All of us at Westchester Oral & Maxillofacial Associates are devoted to caring for the people of Westchester County because it’s where we live, not just where we work.
The common thread that runs through all seven of these reasons is our sincere wish to make our patients’ experience free from anxiety of any kind.
Dr. Kur extracted my 4 wisdom teeth, and also gave me four implants. Not once did I have any pain after both procedures. He did an amazing job! He and his staff were extremely friendly and very informative the entire time. If you need oral surgery this is the place to go.
Dr. Kur and his staff made my experience truly wonderful. I was in such excruciating pain until I couldn’t function. They performed an emergency extraction on my wisdom tooth. I felt much better after my surgery. The office is clean and very comfortable. Obviously no one wants to have a tooth removed, however, if you need to have this procedure done, then I would definitely recommend this practice.
Dr. Kur is an amazing oral surgeon. I had implant surgery performed & I did not experience any discomfort at all. The surgery and healing process was painless. He made sure I was totally comfortable throughout the surgery. His staff was equally compassionate. Dr. Kur followed up with a phone call in the evening to make sure I was doing well. He is an excellent doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of oral surgery.
Dr. Kur and his staff are fantastic. Unfortunately, my son, age 6, had to have one of his molars removed. Not only did this procedure go extremely well, (and very quick) but there was no complaining of pain afterwards. I would highly recommend Dr. Kur to anyone looking for an Oral Surgeon. Great experience!
Dr. Kur was nice, comforting, and made my extractions & implants as painless as possible. The office staff was equally as pleasant, making the paperwork as effortless as possible and were very welcoming. There is also a good payment plan available if you need it.
I had a very complex oral surgery performed by Dr. Kur. I was very anxious about having the work done, but quickly relieved after speaking with Dr. Kur and his staff. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Kur. He took the time to explain everything to me in detail before performing the many steps of my treatment. Along the way, he and his staff assisted me with all my questions and concerns. I am very happy with the outcome. Dr. Kur is extremely proficient and professional and I strongly recommend him as he is “the best of the best!”
When you’re not feeling well, (your tooth is throbbing in pain) and unexpectedly need surgery, this is the place to go to. From the caring office team, and staff, Dr.Kur’s expertise and care for his patients in insurmountable. Dr. Kur did everything possible and succeeded in saving my tooth from being extracted.
Dr. Kur removed all four of my daughters wisdom teeth. The entire process was stress free. Dr. Kur and his staff were wonderful.
Dr. Kur is an amazing oral surgeon. He pulled one tooth and put in 2 implants. Mindful of my pain and my comfort, he reminded me of an artist enjoying his craft. As for his staff, nothing short of top notch. Professional and courteous. This is my oral surgeon forever!! As a matter of fact I am scheduled for more work in the near future. I would refer anyone who needs work done.
