Meet Dr. Fredrick Hecht

Dr Frederick HechtBorn in Philadelphia and raised in Newington, Connecticut, I’m a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. I received my undergraduate degree in chemistry and biology from the University of Connecticut and my doctorate in Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1971.

Having done my residency at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, I have been practicing in Carlisle, PA since 1977, and recently moved our office to Shippensburg, PA.

Along with being a diplomate of the Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, I belong to a variety of professional organizations, including American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Pennsylvania Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Dental Association, and the Pennsylvania Dental Association.

My career as a dentist is devoted to all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with special interests in the treatment of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and dental implants. To keep abreast of the latest developments in oral and maxillofacial surgery, I have always exceeded the continuing education requirements in Pennsylvania.
