About Dr. Christopher M. Amenedo
Christopher Amenedo, D.D.S. was born in the Bronx, and raised in Westchester County, graduating from Valhalla High School in 1994. He received his Bachelors of Science in Biology from SUNY at Albany in 1998 graduating Magna cum laude.
Dr. Amenedo received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2002 from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine and Dentistry, where he received awards in research and clinical achievement. Immediately following graduation from dental school he entered the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program at Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx.
Dr. Amenedo completed his residency in 2006, serving as Chief Resident for the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery during his final year. He then accepted a prestigious faculty position at Montefiore Medical Center as a Clinical Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for an additional two years. This allowed him an incredible opportunity to receive additional and extensive clinical experience, publish academic articles and lecture nationally as an expert on all aspects of dental implant surgery, jaw bone grafting, oral reconstruction and regeneration.
Dr. Amenedo entered private practice in 2009, founding Westchester Oral and Maxillofacial Associates in Hawthorne, NY. He sold this practice in 2013, and has continued to work in private practice in Suffolk County, Westchester County and in Ulster County at Woodstock General and Implant Dentistry.
