Dr. Kenneth L. Halpern trained at Georgetown University Dental School where he received his D.D.S degree. He graduated Cum Laude in 1974. At that time he was inducted into Omega Kappa Upsilon, the honorary dental fraternity (phi beta kappa).

He was also awarded “The Morin Award in Oral Surgery for Excellence” and “The Frank Ingersol Award for Excellence in Periodontics” by Georgetown University Dental School.

Following dental school Dr. Halpern continued his education at Georgetown where he completed the advanced residency training program in oral and maxillofacial surgery, receiving a Master of Science degree in oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Dr. Halpern has been practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery in the New York metropolitan area for 25 years and is an attending surgeon at North Shore/ Long Island Jewish Hospital and North Shore University Hospital at Glen Cove.

Dr. Halpern began placing dental implants 18 years ago when implant dentistry was in its infancy in this country. Dental implants have since become the focus of his practice and he has placed thousands of implants to date. Today the vast majority of his practice revolves around minimally invasive implant placement and related procedures.

In 1994 Dr. Halpern developed the surgical techniques involved in minimally invasive implant placement, allowing this surgery to be performed without the use of gum flaps or sutures, thus eliminating the swelling and bruising as well as almost all of the discomfort associated with dental implant placement. Subsequent innovations developed by Dr. Halpern allow for minimally invasive bone grafting procedures as well.

Dr. Halpern has lectured widely to the dental profession on the concepts and surgical techniques of minimally invasive implant therapy.



Dr. Emily B. Halpern received her B.A. degree from Binghamton University in 1996.

She then attended New York University College of Dentistry and received her four year Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2000.

Following graduation, Dr. Halpern completed a one year residency in general dentistry at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, one of the most sought after residencies in the country. Throughout that year, her focus was clearly oral and maxillofacial surgery. In addition, Emily was a winner of The Long Island Jewish Schneider Children and Hillside Hospitals Annual Academic Competition, where she competed against the other residents of these hospitals. Dr. Halpern then completed 4 additional years at Long Isalnd Jewish Medical Cener and obtained her advanced degree in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. As chief resident, she taught oral surgery to the dental students and residents at the State University of Stony Brook Hospital, Northport Veterans Adminstration Hospital as well as at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. She placed special emphasis on dental implant surgery, however she is highly experienced in facial trauma, the treatment of dentofacial deformities, removal of cysts and tumors of the jaws, and removal of impacted and erupted teeth. Dr. Halpern has extensive experience using all the minimally invasive techniques available to our practice today.
