The "Implant Dentist's Implant Dentist"

Dr. Tavormina is an immensely caring and talented dentist serving patients in Millburn, NJ and surrounding areas. Colleagues have dubbed him the “Implant Dentist’s Implant Dentist” because he performs the most extreme dental implant surgeries other dentists are not equipped to handle. Three decades ago, he and his wife Dr. Glenda began Tavormina Dentistry to build a dental practice that strives to put patients first in every facet of the process. They have two full grown children and believe that in every aspect of their personal and professional life, caring for others is the grandest pursuit of all. Dr. Tavormina likes fishing and learning magic tricks in his spare time. Dr. Glenda loves going to the theater, watching dance, and visiting art galleries in her spare time. Together they have created a practice brimming with joy, trustworthiness and superior dentistry.
Dr. Tavormina graduated from Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1977. He has received numerous honors both nationally and internationally in the implant dentistry field.
