Dr. Robert Peskin:
Dr. Robert M. Peskin graduated from Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine in 1977. He subsequently completed General Practice and Dental Anesthesiology Residencies at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Since 1983, he has maintained a private dental anesthesiology practice devoted primarily to the management of the anxious, apprehensive and special needs patient in Garden City, New York. In addition, he provides in-office anesthesia for other dentists throughout the Greater New York metropolitan area.
In July, 2011, Dr. Peskin was named Director of the Dental Anesthesiology Residency Program at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center located in Brooklyn, New York. He is also a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Hospital Dentistry at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine, and an Assistant Attending in the Department of Dental Medicine at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He is a Diplomate of the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology and a Fellow of the American and International Colleges of Dentists, the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Peskin’s interest in professional liability insurance began in the mid-1980’s amidst the malpractice insurance crisis that ultimately led to the creation of the claims-made coverage that is the market standard today. During that time, he lectured frequently on malpractice insurance in general and in particular on its impact on coverage for dentists administering anesthesia. In 1986, he began a 16-year tenure on the New York State Dental Association’s (NYSDA) Council on Insurance. Since 1995 he has presented the NYSDA-endorsed Risk Management® program more than 100 times throughout New York State.
Dr. Peskin has also been extremely active within the tripartite of organized dentistry, including the Nassau County Dental Society, the New York State Dental Association (where he served as Speaker of its House of Delegates for six years) and the American Dental Association. He also has a passion for parliamentary procedure, having been elected to the American Institute of Parliamentarians Board of Directors in 2014, and as its Secretary since 2016. Most recently he was elected to the Board of Directors of Special Care Dentistry Association.
