Meet Dr. Sanil Nigalye
Thinking about oral surgery can be overwhelming, so it’s important to have a knowledgeable doctor that you can trust, who will guide you every step of the treatment process. Luckily, we have Dr. Sanil B. Nigalye, who is one of the most dedicated and passionate oral surgeons you will ever meet. Since 2007, he has devoted his time and career to caring for the people of the Greater Buffalo area by opening private practices in both Williamsville and Niagara Falls. While his training is within the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Nigalye focuses on the management of impacted teeth, rehabilitating mouths through dental implants and tissue regeneration, outpatient anesthesia and treatment of benign pathology of the head and neck region.
After Dr. Nigalye received his medical and dental degrees from the University at Buffalo, he continued on to the highly intensive 6-year Oral and Maxillofacial training program at UB. Through that program and many other amazing and educational experiences, Dr. Nigalye has mastered the management of critical care patients, vascular surgery, thoracic surgery to facial trauma, head and neck surgery, and beyond.
Dr. Nigalye is committed to lifelong learning. He embraces continuing education, having earned over 700 continuing education credits in less than 10 years (the minimum requirement is 60 credits every three years). He believes it is incredibly important to be educated on all of all the advances in dentistry and incorporate new surgical and anesthesia techniques for the benefit of his patients.
In his spare time, Dr. Nigalye binge-watches The Walking Dead, but also loves skiing, cycling, fitness (High Intensity Interval Training at his local gym), and spending time with his wife, who is also a dentist that shares a similar passion. They have 2 sons: with one playing soccer and the other playing an instrument, he and his wife definitely know what it means to be busy parents! Additionally, Dr. Nigalye is passionate about let them LOL, an organization that volunteers, fundraises and donates to the people of Sierra Leone. This group is known for empowering communities by providing resources for clean and sustainable water. Check out their website at http://ltlol.com/clean-water/
