The Edison Citizen of the Year award honors individuals who have made a difference in the lives of Edison residents.
Dr. Kleiman is a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who has been practicing in New Jersey since 1981. Following the completion of his residency training at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, he returned to New Jersey to live and practice a short distance from where he grew up. Prior to his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency, he graduated from Rutgers College and Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Dentistry. Upon graduation from dental school, he received several awards, including the Dean's Award for Academic Excellence, the Oral Pathology Award, the Oral Medicine Award, and the Research Award.
Dr. Kleiman's residency training included all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery but was especially strong in the areas of dentoalveolar surgery, office-based anesthesia, the correction of dentofacial deformities, and in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of oral and maxillofacial pathology. Since the 1980s, when modern dental implants made their appearance in the United States, Dr. Kleiman developed great interest and expertise in the placement of dental implants and in procedures related to them, including bone grafting. In August 2015, Dr. Kleiman edited an issue of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics of North America on Dentoalveolar Surgery.
While practicing in New Jersey, Dr. Kleiman continued to be a member of the Teaching Faculty at Long Island Jewish Medical Center for over 10 years. He also served as Chairman of the Department of Dentistry and President of the Medical / Dental Staff of JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey. After serving 4 years as President of the Medical / Dental Staff, he was appointed to the Board of Directors of JFK Medical Center and to the Board of Directors of JFK Health System. In 2004, Dr. Kleiman became Chairman of the Board of Directors of JFK Medical Center. In 2009, Dr. Kleiman became Chairman of the Board of Directors of JFK Health System and served in that position until the merger of JFK Health into the Hackensack Meridian Health System.
