Dr. Nate Chertok

Prosthodontics
School of Dentistry

An experience I will never forget is making an obturator (the size of my thumb) for a 28-week pre-term infant with a cleft lip and palate in the NICU to improve oxygen flow and allow the infant to wean off the ventilator.

Hometown

Dr. Nate Chertok grew up in Israel. He has been in Morgantown, WV for several years.

Dental School

Dr. Chertok earned his doctor of dental surgery degree at West Virginia University School of Dentistry in 2019. 

What made you want to earn your post doctoral degree in prosthodontics?

I wanted to be able to provide the highest level of care to my patients that is evidence based. 

What do you take most pride in from your residency?

The impact and changes I have been able to provide for my patients to improve their quality of life. 

Explain a residency experience you will never forget.

Making an obturator (the size of my thumb!) for a 28 week old pre-term infant with a cleft lip and palate in the NICU to improve the oxygen flow and allow the the infant to wean off the ventilator. 

What is something surprising about you that others may not know?

I started on my high school basketball team. 

Let’s go.
