About Richard P. Szumita

New Jersey Monthly Top Dentists Drs. Hillel Ephros, Richard Szumita, and Marianne Cifelli have joined the PRECiDENT Center for Facial & Dental Medicine, a multi-state, collaborative network of dental and medical professionals led by Dr. Scotty L. Bolding.

“PRECiDENT is working toward developing a faculty practice relationship with Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center, where we are all on staff,” says Dr. Ephros. “This gives us the opportunity to deliver care as clinicians, educators, and researchers.”

In their new, state-of-the art office, the board-certified doctors treat maxillofacial trauma, congenital conditions, and TMJ disorders, and perform implant placement, bone grafts, and wisdom teeth extractions.

Dr. Hillel Ephros* graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and received his medical degree from Saint George’s University School of Medicine. He completed his dental residency at Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center and his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at VA New Jersey Healthcare System.

Dr. Szumita graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. He completed a general practice residency at the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, followed by a residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the VA New Jersey Healthcare System.
