Meet Dr. Delgado
Dr. Edward Delgado attended Georgetown University as a student-athlete, where he played 4 years of NCAA football. This led to him signing NFL contracts with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, and Oakland Raiders. An injury ended his NFL career, and he went on to attend Georgetown University School of Dentistry.
Dr. Delgado graduated Cum Laude and completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency and medical school training at Nassau County Medical Center in East Meadow, New York, and at Stony Brook School of Medicine. He was chief resident and, in the early 1980s was involved with one of the first implant teaching centers in the United States. This center was led by Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark and his original Swedish surgical team for the placement and restoration of the dental implants that are used throughout the world today.

"I was referred to Dr. Delgado for wisdom teeth extraction. I still had all 4 of them but # (1) had become problematic. I have had quite a bit of dental work done but this extraction was just about pain free. No swelling and very little blood. He took the time to explain the procedure and answer all questions. I highly recommend Dr. Delgado! "
