For well over a decade, Zev Kaufman, DDS, has been known in the dental community as "the dentist's dentist." Graduating with honors and at the top of his class from the world-renowned New York University College of Dentistry, Kaufman was one of a select few students in his class to complete the Comprehensive Care and Applied Practice Administration Honors program, as well as the Orthodontic Honors program. With an excellent dental education, Kaufman set out to be the ultimate dental specialist.

After being awarded the DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree, Kaufman completed a yearlong comprehensive general dentistry residency program at St. Barnabas Hospital.

Following his residency, Kaufman was accepted to the post-graduate certification program in the specialty of prosthodontics at New York University.

Throughout his five years of post-doctoral studies, Kaufman maintained a private, part-time, dental practice and also taught X-ray technology and diagnosis at the department of Radiology at NYU. Upon graduation as a fellow in implant dentistry, Kaufman was asked to stay as an assistant professor at the post-graduate department of implant dentistry at New York University. Along with research and hands-on patient instruction, Kaufman presents seminars to the senior residents, emphasizing his unique approach to "patient-centered, efficient implant treatment." He has published nationally and internationally, and presented in major meetings including the Greater New York Dental Meeting, the Northeast Implant Symposium, and at the Yankee Dental Congress in Boston, and NYU Implant/Perio Alumni Symposium.
