Dr. Tucker's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tucker "My profession comes with a responsibility to provide the best care I can every day to all my patients. I also have the opportunity to try to deliver results which meet or exceed expectations. It is an honor to be trusted with improving a person's smile, which is a precious asset. This will be my 28th year practicing orthodontics, and I still truly love what I do. A nice smile can change a person's whole demeanor, improve self–confidence, and simply make someone a happier person. It's hard to be happy without smiling, and it's hard to smile if you're unhappy with your smile. I see many patients who feel uncomfortable smiling at the initial consultation. The purpose of my job is to change this, helping each patient acquire a smile they are truly proud of at the completion of treatment. Helping someone attain a healthy, happy smile is always rewarding, and it is the reason I come to work each day. EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION For my orthodontic education, I attained the following educational certificates: American Board of Orthodontics Board Certified Undergraduate degree, New York University DDS and Orthodontic Graduate Program, NYU College of Dentistry Dental Residency Program, Eastman Dental Center, University of Rochester I attend continuing education courses to stay current with the latest orthodontic treatment to ensure I am providing the best care possible for my patients. As a part of my studies, I am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, and the Northeast Society of Orthodontists. I also attend Second District Dental Society continuing education courses, Invisalign® courses, and TAD courses. PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS American Association of Orthodontists American Dental Association New England Society of Orthodontists New York State Dental Association Second District Dental Association FAMILY AND COMMUNITY I am originally from Brooklyn, and have lived in East Brunswick, New Jersey for almost 20 years.

While Dr Tucker was my orthodontist, without explanation, he passed me onto his apprentice/partner rather than providing continuity of care. I did not feel respected as a patient. His understudy may need practice but I was not prepared to be practice on. Dr. Tucker shouId respect his patients...more

Sorry that you were not satisfied with our office. My partner is a board certified orthodontist with many years of experience. However, patients may request to see the doctor with which they feel most comfortable. Most of our staff has been with us for many years. I am sorry there was a miscommunication during your visit.
