Dr. Amy Tanchyk is a board-certified oral surgeon who treats patients with a compassionate, educational approach to ease anxiety and increase their confidence.
Amy Tanchyk, DMD, MD, grew up in East Brunswick, right down the road from Oral Surgery Group. She is the youngest of three children. Her father is a general dentist, and Dr. Tanchyk’s journey to becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon began at a young age during visits to her father’s dental practice, where she was moved by how her father was able to help his patients get out of pain. In Dr. Tanchyk’s second year of dental school, her interest was piqued by the more specialized field of oral surgery. After seeing oral surgery procedures firsthand, she became interested in the immediate gratification of being able to solve problems for people and help them in life-changing ways.
Dr. Tanchyk moved back to the East Brunswick area with her husband in July of 2018 to join Oral Surgery Group. She was drawn to the practice because she admired the doctors’ patient-centered, compassionate approach to oral and maxillofacial surgery and is thrilled to join such an accomplished team of surgeons. Dr. Tanchyk is very understanding about the anxiety that comes with surgery and always spends time talking with her patients through each step of their treatment. She is passionate about providing excellent results while supporting her patients for a positive oral surgery experience.
As a resident, Dr. Tanchyk made several trips abroad on dental missions to Bangladesh, as well as Honduras and Ecuador, to provide surgical repair of cleft lip and palate for patients in need. It was enormously gratifying for her to provide this kind of care to patients who had not been treated for their conditions as infants. These humanitarian missions had a profound effect on Dr. Tanchyk—the opportunity to provide life-changing treatment deepened her love for oral surgery.
