AboutPremier Oral Surgery

Welcome to Premier Oral Surgery & Implantology Center. Our team provides oral surgery service in Norwalk and the surrounding area. We are highly skilled specialists in patient care and take every measure necessary to ensure patient comfort and safety. Some might find oral surgery intimidating. That is why our team wants you to know you are in capable hands, with practitioners backed by experience and a dedication to patient health.

The team at Premier Oral Surgery & Implantology Center provides the full range of oral surgery procedures to a diverse group of patients. We bring the same precision and care from simple extractions to reconstructions or more involved procedures. Our team realizes that no two procedures or people are alike. Therefore, we must take the time to get to know patients and develop a deep understanding of their issues. This is the only way we can customize a care plan that truly serves their needs.

Our procedures have relieved many of our patients’ toughest oral health problems. Problems in the mouth can affect sleep, speaking, eating, and many other areas vital to a healthy and active life. Our years of experience equip us with the knowledge and skill to help our patients achieve the results they seek.

Many patients find oral surgery daunting. Therefore, putting patients at ease is our first priority. This begins with patient education. The more educated a patient is about any procedure, and how it can benefit them, the more comfortable they will be before, during, and after their treatment. Informing our patients is paramount because we know that informed patients are able to take a more active role in their treatment process and recovery.

In addition to ensuring patients have what they need to make the right decisions about their oral health, we will take every step to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. Our team is knowledgeable in various sedation methods for those who are especially anxious about the idea of surgery. In addition, we will work with each patient to ensure their treatment goes as smoothly as possible. After the procedure, we follow up with patients to answer questions and inquire about the recovery process.

Premier Oral Surgery & Implantology Center stays in touch with each of our patients on every step of their care journey. If, at any stage in the process, you need help, never hesitate to call. Our caring staff is here to answer questions and offer assistance. Please call 203-945-0049 to learn more about our services.

Dr. Bangiyev


Dr. Simon Y Bangiyev

With over 15 years of experience I was trained in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery which includes dentoalveolar surgery (treatment of diseases of the teeth, soft tissue, and the jawbone), implantology, facial trauma, surgical correction of malocclusion (orthognathic) surgery, pathology, and the treatment of TMJ disorders.

I commenced my career at the St. John’s University in Queens, NY, where I received both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Certificate of completion from the Physician Assistant accelerated program. As a physician assistant, I worked in the Department of General Surgery at both St. John’s and Mary Immaculate Hospitals in Queens, New York where I was immediately recognized by both patients and attending staff for my hard work and dedication to patient care. Through my work at Mary Immaculate Hospital, a Level I Trauma Center, I was intimately involved in the integrated care of trauma patients, including those with facial injuries, an experience which spurred my interest in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

I obtained my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from SUNY Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, during which I was recognized by NYSSOMS for my outstanding achievements in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. I then completed an integrated residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where I also received my medical degree.

I am currently faculty at Yale New Haven Hospital where I teach residents in the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
