About David Alan Behrman, D.M.D.

Dr. Behrman is a 1976 graduate of Hamilton College. He received his DMD from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in June 1980. He was an Intern in the Department of Anesthesiology of Case Western Reserve - University Hospitals of Cleveland from July 1980 - June 1981, and then completed an oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at The New York Hospital from July 1981 - June 1984. He has been a full-time academic oral and maxillofacial surgeon at The New York Hospital - Cornell Medical Center since July, 1984, becoming Division Chief in 1996. He was Certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in March 1986. He has consistently been promoted at Cornell University from the Instructor level in 1984 to Assistant Professor in 1987 and to Associate Professor in 1993.


Dr. Behrman plays a key leadership role in surgical education, serving as Program Director for the Advanced Education Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery since 1995. He also is responsible for supervising the oral and maxillofacial surgery resident rotation/coverage for New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens, and was co-founder in 1989 of the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Surgery team.


Dr. Behrman is currently serving as President of the New York State Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and is a current Trustee and Delegate of this prestigious society.

Dr. Behrman is widely published and has, in conjunction with the Department of Biomechanics of the Hospital for Special Surgery, developed an innovative temporomandibular joint prosthetic replacement system. Ten prostheses were placed in six patients, and follow-up of over 10 years demonstrated the viability of this system.
