About Mohammed S. Erakat

Seeing how oral surgical procedures could completely change the lives of patients inspired Dr. Mohammed Erakat to make a career of doing just that. Having led his own practice since 2014, this double-degreed, board-certified oral surgeon provides his patients with exceptional care. “This is what I’m meant do,” he says. “It’s such an honor to be able to improve my patients’ quality of life on a daily basis.”

A graduate of 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 equipped with the most advanced oral surgical technology. Treatment options are explained in everyday language and Dr. Erakat meets with patients in consultation rooms far from any dental instruments. “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. Dr. Erakat’s incredibly informative and mobile-friendly website enables patients to keep up on the latest oral surgery trends through his own blog. They can also use the highly intuitive website to research a variety of oral surgery procedures and request appointments online.

“I’m incredibly proud that my practice continues to grow, and even more so because that is happening primarily through word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied patients,” he says.

*This dentist has also earned an MD degree, but is not licensed to practice medicine in the State of New Jersey.
