About Philip M. Echo

For over 27 years Dr. Philip Echo has provided the Nutley area with a full array of top-notch oral and maxillofacial surgery services in a comfortable, serene space. “I feel that the trust people put in me is an honor,” he says, “and I work hard to stay at the forefront of my field and live up to that trust.”

Dr. Echo is board certified in oral and maxillofacial surgery. He and his friendly, well-trained staff go above and beyond to help patients, from playing their favorite music during procedures to calling to check on them at night or over the weekend. The office walls are covered with beautiful photos, taken by Dr. Echo, to further enhance the relaxing, home-like atmosphere. “We really focus on creating a calm environment to put our patients at ease,” he says. “Their mental well-being has a big effect on their physical well-being, and we make sure to address the whole person, not just the tooth.”

Dr. Echo completed both dental school and his specialty training at UMDNJ. He served as chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery at Mountainside Hospital for 13 years, and often lectures on topics related to dental surgery.
