Expert… Artist… Friend.
These are some of the words used by patients to describe Dr. Michael Cortese.

Three years of additional university training and more than 25 years of experience as a maxillofacial prosthodontist have certainly made Dr. Cortese worthy of the “expert” label. He is a painter, sculptor, and master of the fine art of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Dr. Cortese comes from a family of artists, including his grandfather, who worked on Paul Manship’s famous statue of Prometheus, which stands in New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Thus, many of his patients look at him as a true artist.

But first and foremost, Dr. Cortese treats every patient like family. Nothing is more important to him than your comfort in the dentist’s chair and your satisfaction with your result. He not only gives you a beautiful smile … he gives you a reason to smile. And nothing pleases him more than to have a patient describe him as a friend.

New patients often say to Dr. Cortese and his staff, “I only wish I’d come here first.” Why? One look at the smiles and comments of some of his patients below, and the answer is obvious.

Lee Weisbach, Lawrenceville, New Jersey

“Whatever problem I have, small or large, Dr. Cortese is always there and available. He is an expert, a professional, and a pleasure. He has become my personal friend.”

Phil Nasuti, Princeton Junction, New Jersey

“Dr. Cortese is the consummate pro, well beyond any dental professional I’ve ever come across. I have complete faith and comfort in dealing with him. He is a visionary with a level of depth perception toward solving problems that is beyond anyone I’ve ever seen in the medical field.”

Barbara Lederman, Monroe Township, New Jersey

“Dr. Cortese’s reputation is stellar, so he was the first doctor I turned to when I needed a prosthetic palette after cancer surgery. I felt confident that I was getting the best possible medical care. Dr. Cortese was a calming influence during a very difficult time.”


Lauren Butcher, Millington, New Jersey

“After years of failed attempts by other dentists, Dr. Cortese was able to put a smile on my face. The exceptional knowledge and skill of Dr. Michael Cortese helped me to overcome severe TMJ dysfunction. His work is head and shoulders above the rest, so I still travel almost an hour for his superb dental care.”

Gary Watlington, Princeton Junction, New Jersey

“Frankly, I thought all dentists were the same. But when I asked people about Dr. Michael Cortese, everyone said ‘he’s the best’ … and then I learned why. He made a big difference in my life.”

Elle Vitale, Manhattan, New York

“You know that when you’re seen by Dr. Cortese, you’re seeing the very best. I received care that went well beyond common cosmetic dentistry.”
