A Word from Dr. Cortese

“There is no single factor more vital in making that all-important good first impression on others than a healthy smile.

“Whether you wish you had a brighter smile or straighter teeth – or you need to replace a tooth entirely – I hope you will pay us a visit at Princeton Prosthodontics.

“My staff and I have the most training in this demanding discipline of any practitioners in the region. We also have the most modern equipment and techniques at our command.

“Equally important, we know how to sit down and listen to our patients, taking the time to evaluate your case, answer your questions, and address any concerns.

“I look forward to meeting you and discussing your prosthodontic needs soon.”
