Oral Surgeon Michael J Safian, DDS

Dental School: New York University
Residency: Hospital of St. Raphael/Yale-New Haven Hospital.     
Fellowship: Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center

I have always striven to treat my patients in the same manner that I would expect to be treated.  Appointments are scheduled just for you with overlapping appointments minimized. I don’t like to sit in a waiting room, and I don’t think you should have to either.  If you think my waiting room isn’t busy, that’s a good thing.

I am on staff at Yale-New Haven Hospital where I operate and teach in our residency program. I serve as the Director of Resident Research, sit on the Residency Review Committee, resident selection committee, and Clinical Competency Committees. I also serve as faculty in the Simulated Anesthesia Emergency training program for our residents.

When I’m not caring for my patients, I like to spend time with my family.  We enjoy skiing, tennis, soccer, hiking, boating, fishing and anything that we can do together. Our Portuguese water dog keeps us especially busy.
