Dr. Luke Soletic was born and raised in Long Island, NY. He attended college at Webb Institute, earning dual bachelors degrees in naval architecture and marine engineering. After working in engineering for two years he decided to pursue his competing interest in healthcare. He completed a post-baccalaureate program, and went on to graduate from Columbia University’s College of Dental Medicine. Strong interests in anatomy and surgical procedures during dental school led him to OMFS. While in dental school he had opportunities to participate in a formal hospital OMFS rotation, assist with implant placement and bone augmentation procedures for his clinic patients, and lead the OMFS interest club his third year.
He matched into NYU-Langone / Bellevue Hospital Centers’ OMFS program, where he is currently a PGY-5/6. As part of his training, he last year earned his MD degree from NYU School of Medicine. Thus far in residency, he’s enjoyed pursuing his passions for implantology and reconstructive procedures. Currently, he’s involved in ongoing clinical dental implant research at NYU College of Dentistry. He is ecstatic to have the opportunity to further his knowledge in these areas through the generosity of Osteo Science Foundation’s Clinical Observership Program!
