RUBEN COHEN, D.D.S.

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Hello. I’m Dr. Ruben Cohen of Park Smiles NYC - and I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve you at our practice. I know you have many options in the New York area, but I feel certain that you won’t find another practice that offers the same world-class experience and results that we offer at Park Smiles NYC.

A little background about me: I was born in France and raised in Paris and Los Angeles. I’ve also traveled across the world as a volunteer to provide free surgical treatment to children born with facial deformities. My volunteer work has taken me to towns and villages in Asia, Africa and Central America – including Haiti in 2010 as a volunteer in the Israeli Defense Force Field Medical Hospital after their tragic earthquake. I’m also extremely proud to have volunteered in the 9/11 rescue efforts at Ground Zero.

I’ve been very fortunate to have an excellent education, but it’s the volunteer work and community involvement that have made the most impact in giving me a strong sense of empathy and compassion. I strive to incorporate these qualities each day into my life – both personally and professionally at Park Smiles NYC.

Again, I thank you for the opportunity to serve you – and hope to see you soon!
