James D. Amborski, DDS, MS

Meet Dr. Amborski

I am writing to congratulate Jim Amborski on his retirement. March 1, 2019 will be a bittersweet date when Jim officially retires. Not only have we shared a practice, but we shared a physical office with desks less than 10 feet apart. We have spent many hours together after work discussing cases and various topics within oral surgery; as well as lamenting over the Buffalo Bills. Jim is a distinguished colleague, invaluable mentor, and close friend.

I met Jim while I was in dental school. He welcomed me into this practice after completing my residency in Washington, D.C. just as Bill Heneghan and Fred Emmings welcomed him 27 years ago. When I joined the practice, we updated our office by completing a full transition to an electronic health record, digital xrays, CBCT, digital intraoral impressions, and use of dynamic navigation for guided implant placement. I have been privileged to share an office with such a talented, professional, intelligent, ethical, and compassionate oral & maxillofacial surgeon. He has had many accomplishments during his career. After graduating from the University of Rochester many years ago, he went on to graduate from the Georgetown University School of Dentistry, Summa Cum Laude.  He was also inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society.  He then completed a residency in oral & maxillofacial surgery at The Ohio State University.  While there, he did research as well to earn a Master’s degree. For over 20 years, he taught the oral surgery residents in the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at URMC and advanced to the position of Clinical Assistant Professor before stepping down to focus primarily on private practice. He was also an officer on the Rochester Dental Study Club and active member of the Monroe County Dental Society mediation committee for several years. 

Lang Page and Bill Heneghan opened the doors to this oral surgery practice here at Tobey Village Office 40 years ago. I am grateful that you continue to support us by entrusting us with your care. Even though Jim and I had a few variations with certain surgical techniques, we shared the same philosophy of delivering a high-level of compassionate, patient-centered care. I look forward to continuing to build on the legacy of this practice and I wish Jim all of the best in his well-deserved retirement.

With best wishes,

Donald D. Pitcher, D.D.S.
