About Jeffrey C. Elbaum
Around 500 BC, Heraclitus of Ephesus said, “Change is the only constant in life.” Few people could have envisioned the major changes in everyday life that have taken place this year. The COVID-19 virus has affected millions of people around the world, and New Jersey has been hit particularly hard.“At the Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we strive to do our best to provide for as many people with emergencies as possible,” says Dr. Jeffrey Elbaum. “Being selected as New Jersey Monthly Top Dentists again is an honor that we feel obligated to live up to.”While taking pride in delivering the most advanced care, these skilled surgeons also take great satisfaction in giving back to the community. “Our biggest responsibility is to the people needing urgent care that cannot be provided elsewhere. The worst place for dental emergencies is the hospital ER: That’s where we come in,” says Dr. Brian Krost. “Our practice has remained open for emergency care throughout the crisis.”“Patients have driven nearly two hours for treatment and are very appreciative of our services,” says Dr. Michael Steinle. “Many people have referred to medical professionals as ‘heroes,’ but we consider it to be our responsibility.”
Together with the remainder of its oral surgery team—Dr. Nam Park, Dr. Nathan Ostler, and Dr. Akeyla Brown—and a dedicated staff, the Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery looks forward to calmer waters.
