About Mohammed Erakat

“This is what I’m meant to do,” says Dr. Mohammed Erakat. “It’s such an honor to be able to change my patients’ lives for the better every single day.” Having led his own practice since 2014, this double-degreed, board-certified oral surgeon provides his patients with exceptional care. After graduating from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Erakat completed an oral surgery residency at UMDNJ, where he also earned a medical degree and completed a general surgery internship. “With my extensive education and training, patients feel safe and in the best of hands,” he says.

His custom-built, 3,000-square-foot modern office is decorated with contemporary art and equipped with the most advanced oral surgical technology. In consultation rooms far from any dental instruments, Dr. Erakat explains treatment options in everyday language and answers every question for patients. “We do our best to ensure patients never feel frightened or rushed,” he says. The office also includes high-end treatment chairs and recovery rooms designed with every comfort. His newly revamped website allows patients to easily research oral surgery topics, request appointments and check the doctor’s blog via their phones or computers.

Dr. Erakat has been voted by his peers as a New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist every year since 2015. His patients have demonstrated their approval as well. “I’m incredibly proud that my practice continues to grow, especially since it’s happening primarily through word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied patients,” he says.
