"The Man Behind The Art"

Dr. Edward DeFabio of DeFabio Dental Design is a “Jersey Boy.” He grew up in Short Hills, attended Newark Academy, and 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 dental office in Monmouth County 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.

"Dr. Fabio's office is ALWAYS on time - Love this because some doctors make you wait forever - I guess some feel our time is not valuable. I have been going to Dr. Defabio for probably 30 years. My family and I would not go to anyone else.

"If you want an excellent dentist who is funny, does great work, and cares about his patients, Dr. DeFabio is the one! He did an excellent job fixing my chipped teeth! I couldn't be happier! Also, I've been coming to him for a long time and I drive 45 mins to see him!"

"Dr. DeFabio is an excellent dentist. I have been going to him for 27 years. He has a great sense of humor but when it comes to his work he is all business. If you don't enjoy going to your current dentist you may want to consider switching to Dr. DeFabio. You will not be disappointed."

You're lucky to be with both Dr. Defabio and Dr. Erica Defabio. They are the best with the highest level of training.”

I've been a patient of Dr. Defabio's since 1991, and I can confidently say that he is a true master in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Defabio himself is not only exceptionally skilled but also remarkably compassionate. He makes the patient the focal point of his concern, ensuring a smooth and comfortable experience during every visit.
