Meet Jerald Friedman, DDS

Dr. Friedman grew up on Staten Island, New York, and always wanted to be a doctor. His first experience with oral surgery occurred when he was just a boy, after a bike accident — and the compassionate care he received was an inspiration to him. Witnessing his mother’s life being saved by a doctor further fueled his love for medicine. Early in his general practice residency at Beth Israel Hospital, Dr. Friedman was able to connect with a frightened young accident victim who entrusted him with putting her back together.

The two things that I feel really makes me who I am: my heart in terms of caring about people and working with my hands…I love what I do and I love taking care of people. I have a passion for oral surgery.

Dr. Friedman realized that through the practice of oral surgery, he would be able to merge his creative and nurturing sides with his medical skills to care for people in a profound way, and this was the turning point when he knew that a life spent helping people get out of pain and out of danger using both his hands and his heart was his calling. Dr. Friedman’s aim at his practice is to provide state-of-the-art, quality care in a calm, warm environment, addressing not just the surgical aspects of the patient experience but the emotional as well. North Jersey Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is a happy place where they treat the patients, not just the task at hand. We don’t take care of teeth; we take care of people!
