Dr. Kulaga's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kulaga "Dr. Kulaga has been in practice for 30 years. He was born and raised in Union, New Jersey. Undergraduate studies were at Seton Hall University, BS in Biology 1977, and Georgetown University, School of Dentistry, DDS in 1983. A Fellowship Certificate was awarded in Orofacial Pain 2009 UMDNJ where Dr. Kulaga was part time faculty. Around 18 years ago, Dr. Kulaga's interest turned to Orthodontics (taking advantage of growth & development). Developing full broad smiles contributes to healthy breathing, healthy jaw joints and a good self esteem. His interest in treating Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (along with other Orofacial Non Dental Tooth Pain) and Obstructive Sleep Apnea was a natural progression. Dr. Kulaga enjoys all the aspects of general dentistry using the above as a foundation for good health and long lasting restorative work. Dr. Kulaga's family includes, wife Nancy, and 3 children (Greg, Julie and Brenda) . He hopes to do some kayaking in Florida, and get plenty of walking with my dogs Teddy and Pikachu!"

Great personality! Dr. Kulaga was great. He took his time explaining things to me...which was helpful because some of the issues I had been experiencing for many years and didn't know they were related to my teeth.
