Meet Dr. Delgado
Dr. Edward Delgado attended Georgetown University as a student athlete where he played 4 years of NCAA football. This led to him signing NFL contracts with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, and Oakland Raiders. An injury ended his NFL career and he went on to attend Georgetown University School of Dentistry.
Dr. Delgado graduated Cum Laude and completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency and medical school training at Nassau County Medical Center in East Meadow, New York, and Stony Brook School of Medicine. He was chief resident and in the early 1980’s was involved with one of the first implant teaching centers in the United States. This center was led by Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark and his original Swedish surgical team for the placement and restorations of the dental implants that are used throughout the world today.

"There aren't enough stars to give this practice. I traveled 4,000 miles to have my wisdom tooth removed by Dr. Delgado. The procedure was not only completely painless but also very quick. Dr. Delgados assistant, Suelynn, (who has amazing hair) was extremely kind and made sure I was comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. I will definitely be back to remove my other wisdom teeth. 200% would recommend to anyone. Dr. Delgado is the absolute best!"
"Dr. Delgado is always so friendly and patient in describing what’s going on. He did a terrific job taking out my son’s wisdom teeth. And his office staff, especially today’s assistant Sue Lynn, is helpful and efficient."
"From the first time we entered the office for the consultation, we were treated with the best care. The office is comfortable, clean, and nice. Kira at the front desk was so great at explaining the process of the surgery and set us up for success. On the day of the procedure we were greeted by the dental assistant Suelynn who was friendly and comforting to my daughter. She was able to relax because she knew she was in great hands. She loved the music they played and said all her nerves went away. Thanks to the surgeon, Dr. Kuzmik for a job well done. We will definitely use Drs. Kuzmik and Delgado for all our oral surgery needs. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who values great care and a friendly atmosphere."
"Yesterday, Dr Delgado installed the dental implant screw that will hold my planned new molar crown. I can’t thank the entire team enough for making it a — dare I say —pleasurable experience. Dr. Delgado performed the work methodically and expertly — and ensured that I was 100 percent pain free from start to finish. SueLynn, helped me with the pre-procedure imaging, assisted during the procedure, and reviewed with me the post-op instructions. She couldn’t have been more generous with her time and insights. Likewise, the folks at the front desk were beyond courteous. If you need an oral surgeon, you want the best. I have no doubt I’ve found that with Dr. Delgado’s team. —— After I badly fractured a tooth and lived with the pain for several days, I discussed my options with my dentist and endodontist. They both concluded that the best course of action was likely to have the tooth removed and replaced with an implant. They referred me to Dr. Delgado who graciously got me in right away. He, and importantly his staff, were unfailing generous with their time in explaining the process and performing the procedure. Dr Delgado performed the extraction expertly. It was quick and painless. I was stitched up and on my way home in about an hour. It’s now nearly 24 hours later and I’m pain free. I couldn’t have asked for anything more, and I look forward to working with his team on follow-up appointments to plan for the new implant."
"Drs. Delgado and Kuzmik are excellent oral surgeons. The office is pleasant and very professional. I highly recommend this office for your oral surgery needs. BTW ... I am a retired dentist."
