Patient Reviews

“Nobody can prepare themselves for the day that you’re told that your 13-year-old daughter has a destructive tumor that has destroyed a large part of her jaw. From that moment forward, your life shifts… Thankfully, however, we were finally connected to Dr. Hanna. His knowledge, precision, and willingness to look at all possible treatment scenarios was second to none. He explained things to her and to us in a way that made us feel like partners with a voice. It was clear that we were in this together… not just through surgery, but for anything we needed. Even if it was just simple reassurance. Dr. Hanna informed us of all options and even took her case to the tumor board in order to provide her the best possible surgery, and treatment – while keeping in mind she was a growing teenager. He was also able to relate to my daughter with ease, allowing her to ask any questions while remaining both realistic and optimistic. Fast forward 4 years, and 3 surgeries behind us (and no visible scars), Dr. Hanna’s aftercare and support continues to remain strong. He continues to check in from time to time, not just about healing, but about my daughter’s life and activities and dreams for the future. It is rare that you can find a doctor who you can text, call, or connect to freely… to calm your concerns about healing, or simply explain a medication in detail. Your child’s life is precious – and he understood that. He was and continues to be an amazing support to our family. Dr. Hanna is a phenomenal doctor, and his character has been proven far beyond the office.”

“I was treated by Dr. Todd Hanna for otoplasty (ear surgery) on my ear that was severely deformed from birth. Dr. Hanna is the kindest, most talented, most devoted, hard-working doctor I have ever met. (and I work in healthcare, so I have met a lot of doctors!) He truly cares about his patients as individuals, and is a painstakingly thorough perfectionist when it comes to his results. It is easy to see that this is more than just his livelihood; this is his passion. In Dr. Hanna, artistry, intelligence, and kindness come together to form an exceptionally wonderful doctor and person. I am so grateful to have met him and to be one of his patients.”

“I had corrective double jaw surgery back in February of 2018 to fix my underbite with Dr. Hanna. He was so professional throughout the whole process from consultation to post-op care. He is one of the best doctors in his field and it shows in his outstanding work. I’m so pleased with my results and recovery. It was a huge procedure and I’m glad I chose him to be my surgeon.”

“Dr. Todd Hanna is the most kind and compassionate human I have ever met in my life. His knowledge and expertise is unheard of. He has done two surgeries on my jaw for a benign tumor, and every time I felt very informed and not nervous at all. His bedside manner is the best, he makes you feel as if you are his only patient. His team is excellent, thorough, as well as friendly. There are not enough words for the absolutely perfect work Dr. Hanna does. I trust him with my health all around and look forward to visiting his practice every time I go in for a check up. During one of the scariest times in my life I knew I didn’t have to worry about the care I was getting. My face after two surgeries looks like it has never been touched in an operating room due to Dr. Hanna’s skill. I am forever grateful for him, he has become a part of my family.”

“The Doctor Hanna is an incredible artist. I had been getting my lip augmented by a plastic surgeon in NYC and had an unfortunate experience of having to dissolve the filler with hyaluronidase, which left my lips scarred. Dr. Hanna was able to revive my lips into a natural shape and size. He is very thoughtful in his markings, choice of filler, and injecting procedure. I did not know a lip augmentation could look this beautiful and natural. This elegant enhancement fits perfectly with my medical profession. People catch me staring at myself in the mirror all the time now and I love it.”

“I had my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Hanna yesterday. My anxiety was high going into the surgery (primarily driven by hearsay related to the experience). Dr. Hanna and his staff did an awesome job. They immediately put my mind at ease upon arrival. It was a quick and painless process. I took some preventive pain medication when I got home, and shortly before bed, but now – 22 hours after surgery – I’m feeling confident pain medication probably won’t be necessary going forward. I’m stunned. Dr. Hanna’s bedside manner was terrific. Each discussion was done in a slow and clear way. The staff is world-class. Thanks again.”

“Dr. Hanna performed orthognathic (double jaw) surgery for me and I’m extremely pleased with my result! I would not hesitate to recommend him to any one of my friends or family members. He is a truly wonderful surgeon! He was very accessible whenever I needed him and addressed any concern I had. I cannot thank him enough for the excellent job he did!”

“Oncologist recommended that Dr. Todd Hanna perform complicated, extensive surgery following diagnosis of melanoma. During the course of treatment, other physicians and surgeons have noted the quality of the surgery. Dr. Hanna and the office staff have been excellent to work with. Highly recommended.”

“Dr. Hanna is an expert at his profession. I had a cyst removed and a implant put in the front of my mouth. I even traveled all the way from California to New York to receive Dr. Hanna’s exceptional work. He is a top notch surgeon, not only is he extremely professional, but he takes the time to thoroughly explain and care for all his patients. He goes above and beyond. Even amidst the pandemic in November 2020 he was able to deliver urgent care and put me right at ease. I have nothing but praise and gratitude for Dr. Hanna’s practice.”

“I highly recommend Dr Hanna. He treated me in an emergency when I broke my jaw in two places. As well as being a terrific doctor and surgeon, he is compassionate, kind, and with a great personality. In more than a year of follow-up treatment, he has always been available and is excellent at explaining the details of complicated surgery in an understandable way. His staff are all very helpful and knowledgeable and I am 100% satisfied as a patient.”

“Dr. Hanna did a very difficult impacted wisdom tooth extraction on my 98-year-old dad. Dr. Hanna took the time to explain exactly what needed to be done. We were already aware of his extensive training in the field but after we met him, we knew he was the doctor we would trust to do this very involved surgery. He was not only an accomplished surgeon but he had compassion and a wonderful sense of humor. My father and I both felt confident and at ease with this wonderful doctor. The surgery turned out well. My dad is doing just fine thanks to Dr. Hanna. We are both so thankful to him. The staff is also amazing. The office manager, Grace (a name that befits her) was so kind and made sure my dad got scheduled as soon as possible. She was such a pleasure to deal with. Dr. Hanna’s surgical assistant, Emi, was also delightful. She was excellent in dealing with a geriatric patient. Yessi, at the front desk greeted everyone with a welcoming smile. I highly recommend Dr. Hanna.”

“In the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Hanna performed a 6-hr tongue reconstruction surgery on my husband. With his incredible skills and expertise, he went above and beyond to deliver the best possible outcome in very difficult times for all. Dr. Hanna ans his team maintained a kind, compassionate, dedicated presence and approach. He took his time to explain his plan and he answered all of our questions throughout the process. Post-op, he made sure to check on my husband and on us and ensured that his recovery was going smoothly. It is clear that Dr. Hanna is a top surgeon, and a very caring person. We are so grateful to him.”

“I had a permanent filler real bad infection, and I was saved by Dr. Todd Hanna at the Lenox Hill Hospital… I consider myself very luck to have had surgery by his magical hands, my face is back to normal without any kind of scar… I am really very happy with the amazing results! Thank you so much, Dr. Hanna.”

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“I would definitely recommend Dr. Hanna, not only for his impressive credentials and expertise but something which is much rarer these days: compassion and thoughtfulness for his patients’ needs and hopes. It moved me to see how with humility and also going above and beyond, he wanted to help me make the best decision for my situation and to put me at ease. I saw how this mattered to him as a doctor and human being. I will always be grateful to Dr. Hanna for my experience with him. Thank you forever, Dr. Hanna.”

“So I saw Dr. Hanna at the recommendation of my general dentist who had done all she could to try and save five of my front teeth. The endeavor to salvage my teeth had been an uphill battle for well over 10 years. A dental history of tooth trauma, thousands of dollars spent on other dentists early in my life who seemed good on paper but were in fact contributing to my poor dental health with poor dental work. Finally nothing more could be done and my teeth needed to come out so I could get dental implants. Obviously this is no easy decision to have to make, and my trepidation level was on 10. Due to my complex medical history, my dentist wanted to make sure that Straumann dental implants were used to ensure the longevity of my new teeth. This is where Dr. Hanna came in. In a world where everything is reviewed online, despite my dentist recommendation I was a little worried because I could not find reviews on him. What I did find online was a very impressive resume of someone who is well-educated and trained in oral and maxillofacial surgery. This put me at ease a little but my next concern was, is this a person who will take their time with me and see the unique intricacies of the care I require and not treat me as a ‘one size fits all’ kind of treatment plan. Fast forward to current day… I had my five teeth removed, plus an additional two infected teeth that had to come out. I had a bone graft put in and my dental implants placed via CT guided surgery by Dr. Hanna. I can honestly say, from the first time I met him last year for consultation, my fears were put to rest. I saw him as a second opinion, I had saw another oral surgeon and brought a copy of the CT scan I had done with me. For whatever reason the CT scan I brought was not opening on his system. This meant I would need to have another CT scan (which is not covered by my dental insurance) at Dr. Hanna’s office in order for him to make an accurate assessment of the care I needed. He was kind enough to waive the fee of CT scan knowing I just paid for one at the other dentist office. He spent around 45 minutes discussing what the CT scan showed. Dr. Hanna explained the condition my teeth were in, why they needed to be removed, why I was getting multiple infections in the gums, and how my chronic medical condition and the medications I take could have played a significant role in the poor condition of my teeth and gums. His knowledge of dentistry and coming up with a viable treatment plan was equally as impressive as his caring and the time he took with me. I’ve had experiences with doctors who have behaved like they were in a rush to see other patients and were not invested in me as an individual patient. Dr. Hanna is not that type of doctor. He is invested in my care as if I were his only patient. I should also mention Dr. Hanna worked closely and communicated often with my general dentist, Dr. Angela Lee, who will be doing the final dental bridge which will go on my implants. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanna to anyone who may be in need of extensive and/or complex oral surgery. He is not just a great doctor, he is a down-to-earth human being who CARES about his patients. Also, I have to give a shout out to Grace who is his office manager. She is professional and gives you a detailed explanation of the cost of care, what the insurance pays and what the patient’s responsibility is. So don’t think twice about it, if you are looking for a great and caring oral surgeon, look no further.”

“Dr. Hanna came to the hospital to perform surgery after a fall on a Sunday (the day of last year’s Super Bowl). He repaired a fractured jaw and did close follow-up on the days and weeks following the surgery. I’m eternally grateful for an excellent result and full function now!! Highly recommend this very skilled lovely person.”

“Dr. Todd Hanna is a most dedicated, extraordinary, double board-certified doctor trained in oral surgery and subspecialties. He has MD and DDS degrees. His training and knowledge of his fields are extensive. His sensitivity and caring for his patients are most evident during office visits. Pain management, pre- and post-op preparations of the patient are superb. Follow-up is meticulous. The office is spotless, well-run, comfortable, and soothing. As a patient and physician, I can recommend Dr. T Hanna without reservations. Diane Hochlerin MD.”

“Dr. Hanna is an amazing human being. I’m happy and grateful that he was my doctor for my surgery. He really cared and made a very serious and complicated operation bearable. He was thorough and explained everything. I was put at ease by his bedside manner. He also extended the same understanding to my family as they were my support. I am thankful to Dr. Hanna for his professional and exemplary service to me and my family.”

“Dr. Hanna is a master at his craft, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of my wisdom teeth removal. I remember being told by my dentist as a child that my wisdom teeth were already growing in an abnormal way and that I would have to get them removed right away. Due to circumstances at the time, I wasn’t able to get this done. And throughout the years it’s been weighing on my mind how much worse they had gotten. After going over my scan with Dr. Hanna, I finally saw just how bad it had become. But he reassured me he would be more than able to help me. The days leading up to the surgery I started to feel anxious. But the day of, once we got started, I felt so well cared for and reassured by Dr. Hanna and his incredible staff that I was confident all would go well. The whole experience exceeded my expectations and now, thanks to Dr. Hanna, I no longer have this weight on my shoulders. There’s no one else I would’ve trusted more to get the difficult job done and I’m forever grateful.”

“Dr. Todd Hanna must make his parents proud! Not only is he very knowledgeable and technically skilled, he has a wonderful personality. He has a way of calming even the most stressful event and anxious patient. He cares and it shows. His confidence and reassurance has helped us on many occasions.

“Dr. Hanna is not only an outstanding surgeon, he is a caring and outstanding person. He took all the time my wife and I needed to speak with him prior to and after my surgery. I have excellent results from my procedures and feel like I’ve gained a friend in Dr. Hanna. I wouldn’t have anyone else treat my family or me other than Dr. Hanna in his area of expertise.”

“Dr. Hanna is a master of his art, and his surgical finesse is extraordinary. He has a special gift as a surgeon and as a person. In August (2020), he performed my surgery, and I couldn’t be any happier. Dr. Hanna is a perfectionist, therefore his surgical outcomes are fantastic. As a double board certified surgeon he performs complex reconstruction surgeries on a daily basis, so he has the knowledge and the surgical expertise. Also, take a look at his Instagram account [@doctor.hanna], because he shares fascinating pre-op and post-op surgical videos. Personally, I wouldn’t trust anyone else, so I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hanna.”

“Doctor Todd and his team are amazing. I came in for a revision surgery and I couldn’t be happier with my results. Dr. Todd is very knowledgeable and transparent. I felt at ease knowing I’m in great hands. He is very detailed and doesn’t rush. He took his time understanding what my concerns were moving forward with surgery. He is a phenomenal surgeon. His staff is very friendly and welcoming. I couldn’t be happier that I came across Doctor Hanna and his awesome team! Thank you!”

Our son was very comfortable with him and had a great result with an easy recovery. I highly recommend him.”

“Dr. Hanna was among 3 surgeons that examined me and my problem. He was definitive and thorough in his diagnosis, explained it thoroughly and even illustrated the abnormality. He sought the needed approvals and surgery went well, followed up and recovery and healing went well. He is personable and not ostentatious. His staff are friendly and efficient. The office is clean and well equipped.”

“Dr. Hanna is first an outstanding and considerate practitioner. He will review your case, develop a plan, initiate the plan of action, and bring it to completion. All this is done while keeping the patient informed and engaged in the process as we work toward the goal of full recovery. l am very grateful that I was offered the opportunity to have been treated by Dr. Hanna. Dr. Hanna has continued to care for me well after my release from the hospital as my recovery continued. It is also necessary to compliment the staff that Dr. Hanna has surrounded himself with both at his practice and the hospital. God Bless You and Thank You Dr. Hanna.”

“Dr. Todd Hanna is a great oral surgeon. I saw him for teeth removal with bone graft and dental implant placement. He took his time with me during my initial consultation, reviewed the CT scan results of my teeth, discussed the condition of the teeth and gums, why the teeth needed to be removed, the procedure by which he would remove them, and the overall time frame and healing process of the bone graft until when I could actually have the implants placed. He took his time with me and explained my treatment plan in great detail. Any questions I had he answered and was even diligent in filling out my short term disability paperwork to ensure I was able to get the proper time off to heal. Dr. Hanna is a stand-up guy who treats his patients with respect, kindness, and understanding of the fear patients have about complex oral surgeries. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs oral surgery done right!”

“After a painful root canal and ultimately having the tooth pulled, I paid a visit to another periodontist. He was bright, charming, witty, and knowledgeable with excellent credentials and spent more than adequate time upfront with me. Clearly, he must be a great surgeon. I had him put in an implant and six months later a crown. The bite was perfect, but the crown was tad too big. The tooth next to it cracked and fell out as I was eating chicken wings. The moral of this story is not to suggest one should avoid eating chicken wings, but rather that “bedside” manner does not tell the tale of competency.

That brings us to Dr. Chad Hanna, an expert in implant, esthetic, reconstructive dentistry and maxillofacial prosthetics. He is bright, charming, witty, knowledgeable, has excellent credentials and spends more than adequate time with me. On my first visit for a cleaning and a check-up, he noticed a slight growth on the roof of my mouth he thought troublesome. I told him I just burned my mouth eating hot chicken wings and it was a blister. He begged to disagree and suggested I visit his brother, Todd, who has a dual-degree (MD, DDS) as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Sure, keep it in the family and send the kids to college.

Dr. Todd Hanna is bright, charming, witty, knowledgeable, has excellent credentials and spent more than adequate time with me. He had agreed to see me, without charge, just to offer a second opinion as a dual-degree (MD, DDS) oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a head and neck reconstructive surgeon and as a favor to his brother who was concerned enough to arrange for the appointment. He thought the growth was likely minor and benign, but clearly not the result of eating chicken wings. He was not overly concerned and I wanted to get quickly home to cook some chicken wings. Nevertheless, he gently persuaded me to have a not inexpensive biopsy done (the bulk of the cost going to the lab). With some reluctance, I acquiesced.

The biopsy came back a few days later and confirmed both the Hanna brothers’ diagnoses that, indeed, it was a benign growth that, fortunately, was highly unlikely to turn malignant. Dr. Todd confirmed reluctantly it was unnecessary for me to have it removed surgically. I was all set to leave to go get an order of chicken wings to celebrate but thought to ask what he would do if he had the same condition. He answered honestly he would remove it just from a precautionary standpoint. Having gone this far, I made an appointment to do so but ran home to chomp on some chicken wings while searching the internet to confirm that cutting out the growth with a scalpel, no less, versus laser, surgery made sense.

All my readings confirmed Dr. Todd’s advice. I was back a week later, spent fifteen painless minutes in his chair with the help of his highly competent and quite knowledgeable assistant. He insisted this time on another biopsy to confirm that he had removed the entire tumor, since it was unusually located on my palate and he had to dig down to the bone to be assured it would be fully removed and not grow back.

The biopsy came back confirming everything was copacetic. I waited for several months, and endless amounts of chicken wings, to let the (minor) wound heal to see if any complications developed or if scar tissue built up. Everything appeared to be fine. However, I held off reviewing my experience until now after going back to Dr. Chad for a cleaning and his appraisal. He thought the wound had healed perfectly and gave me a clean bill of health.

The moral of this story is the same. ‘Bedside’ manner does not tell the tale of competency. In the case of the two Drs. Hanna, they both exhibited superb competency despite being bright, charming, witty, knowledgeable, with excellent credentials, and a willingness to explain their diagnoses and the ramifications of my condition.

It is my pleasure to recommend both surgeons highly, particularly if you like chicken wings.”
