Meet Dr. Michael Fodor

Providing excellent dental care has been the focus of my 48-year career. I continue to see and provide dentistry for patients I have known since opening this practice in 1978, and consider them to be friends and part of my family. I enjoy seeing them in the office and in our community.

As a dentist, I love adding a personal touch to each patient’s dental experience. While my focus is on improving and maintaining oral health, I genuinely care about the individual as a person. Through the years, I have had the pleasure to get to know many wonderful people and their families. Seeing them every six months, and keeping up with the changes in their lives, is one of the most rewarding aspects of my career.

Education and Professional Affiliations

  • Bachelor of Arts in Biology, Seton Hall University, 1968
  • Doctorate of Dental Medicine, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, 1972
  • Army Rotation, 1973

Whether I am repairing a patient’s functionality, restoring someone’s smile, or treatment planning a complex case, I am always thinking about what is right for that person.

Throughout my career, I have stayed up-to-date on the most recent advances in dentistry. Each year has brought new technologies, materials, and methodologies. From changes in diagnostics and treatment planning to the treatment process and results, the field constantly improves.

My passion is cosmetic dentistry and improving people’s smiles and appearance. Through continuing education, I am able to provide the best experience and results for my patients, whether aesthetic or otherwise.

Beyond the Practice

Originally from Passaic, I have lived in Neshanic Station since 1977. My wife, Silvia, is an RN and former Office Manager of the practice. I have two adult children, Michael and Lisa, and five grandchildren.

If I’m not at the office, my priority is time with loved ones, especially my grandkids. I also enjoy playing golf, traveling, and I love good food – especially when shared with family and friends.
