Meet Dr. Chibbaro (Emeritus)

Dr. John ChibbaroDr. John P. Chibbaro is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who has practiced in Westwood, NJ for more than 40 years, providing patients with the full range of his specialty’s services. Well-known and highly regarded throughout the northern New Jersey dental community, Dr. Chibbaro has held a number of leadership positions on hospital staff and in professional societies and has taught hundreds of oral and maxillofacial surgery interns and residents.  

Born and raised in Jersey City, Dr. Chibbaro received both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree from Georgetown University before attending New York University Dental School, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. He then completed an internship and a residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital. 

Dr. Chibbaro’s approach reflects the Riverside Oral Surgery philosophy of providing unparalleled care in an uncompromised setting. In a powerful testament to how long and how well he has upheld that high standard, many of his current patients are the sons and daughters of former patients who have recommended him to their grown children. “As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, we’re always honored when our dental colleagues recommend a patient to us, and I have the same sense – and the same determination to always merit that confidence – when a parent suggests that his or her child see me,” says Dr. Chibbaro. He adds, “But whether someone is a ‘second-generation’ patient or brand new to the practice, our commitment is the same: individualized, excellent, compassionate care.”
