Dr. Newman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Newman "Dr. Richard Newman, a native of Livingston, NJ, went into private practice with his father, Dr. George Newman, in 1995.

He is considered a pioneer of dental bonding and a leading innovator in modern orthodontics. Dr. Richard is proud to continue the tradition and is dedicated to providing the best quality orthodontic care available. Dr. Newman is chief orthodontist for the Regional Craniofacial Center at St. Barnabas Medical Center.
