Dr. Timothy Levine is originally from Western Massachusetts. He graduated with Honors from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA in 2003. He graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in 2008. He then came to New York, where he completed a General Practice Residency at St Barnabas Hospital followed by an Orthodontic Residency, also at St Barnabas. In 2012, he went to Jacobi Medical Center, where he became the first fellow in Surgical Orthodontics and Craniofacial Orthopedics. At Jacobi, he worked with Dr. Cooperman and Mintzberg, who invited him to work with them when he completed his fellowship. He continued working at Jacobi, serving as an instructor and researcher in the Divisions of Orthodontics and Oral Surgery. He has also lectured throughout New York City and Westchester County.
Because of his time at Jacobi, Dr. Levine has extensive experience dealing with severe orthodontic problems that require both braces and surgery to correct. Despite his relative youth, he has already treated more surgical patients than the average orthodontist sees in their career. He enjoys working with the patients because their experience is often life changing.
If you don’t see Dr. Levine in the office, you might see him running around the City training for a marathon.
