Prestige Oral Surgery
Mohammed S. Erakat, DMD, MD
Specialty: Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
A board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Mohammed Erakat goes above and beyond to put his young patients at ease and always welcomes parents in the treatment room. “I take the time to chat with kids about school and their favorite TV shows, and explain treatments in an age-appropriate way,” says the father of two.
Pain-Free Treatments and Visits from the Tooth Fairy
Dr. Erakat blends his background in dentistry, medicine and surgery to practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery. He performs tooth extractions and wisdom teeth removal as well as treatment for tooth fractures and impacted teeth for his young patients.
Dr. Erakat’s brand new, state-of-the-art office features digital X-rays, a newly-revamped website and the most comfortable treatment chairs. Even the Tooth Fairy herself has been known to stop by to visit young patients. The practice offers laughing gas in kid-friendly flavors like grape and bubblegum to provide pain-free treatment.
Dr. Erakat is also able to put patients to sleep for more complex surgeries or when children are anxious.
Highly Trained in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
A fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and diplomat of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Erakat holds doctoral degrees from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and New Jersey Medical School. He completed his undergraduate training in microbiology at the University of California. During his residency at UMDNJ, he participated in clinical research that was published in professional journals.
“Parents appreciate the fact that I’ve earned both medical and dental degrees and received more training than the average oral surgeon,” he says.
He takes his time to explain everything in a kid-friendly way while still assuring that the parents know exactly what is going on. Very friendly but professional at the same time. Highly recommended! ~Christen, Princeton
The first time I met this doctor I was extremely impressed with the way he spoke and explained things to my granddaughter on her level, especially since she is 11 and terrified of any doctor. He made us have confidence in him and any decisions we made together. ~Pamela, Manahawkin
He is very patient with the children. ~Ayesha, Princeton
