Dr. Edward DeFabio

"The Man Behind The Art"

Dr. Edward DeFabio is a “Jersey Boy.” He grew up in Short Hills, attended Newark Academy, earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry from Middlebury College and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry.

After finishing school, Dr. DeFabio opened the doors to his office in Colts Neck and has maintained this practice location ever since. His professional interests are esthetics, adhesion dentistry, minimally invasive microscopic dentistry, advanced restorative dentistry, removable prosthodontics, and endodontics.

Dr. DeFabio was very active with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, serving on the Board of Directors from 1986-1994. He was a Founding Member and President of the New York Chapter of the AACD from 1988-1990. In 1987, Dr. DeFabio became the first accredited member from New Jersey of the AACD. He also served as National Program Chair for the organization in 1994.

Dr. DeFabio is a lifetime member of the American Dental Association, New Jersey Dental Association, and Monmouth-Ocean Dental Society. He has completed extensive continuing education with the prestigious Pankey Institute, as well as with world-renowned dental pioneers Drs. Turbyfill, Feigenbaum, Kois, Spear, and Kim.

When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. DeFabio enjoys spending time with his family - especially his grandchildren, playing golf, sculling on the Navesink River and being Fencing Director for the Sisters’ Academy in Asbury Park. He is an Equestrian Knight of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem and a Third Degree Knight of Columbus.
