Dr. Edward Romano is a native of Bedminster/Far Hills, New Jersey. He holds the distinction of being one of the first dentists in New Jersey to work, train, and teach both cosmetic dentistry and laser dentistry. A past President of the New Jersey chapter of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Romano has been in private practice here in Morristown since 1987 and is known as a leader in the field of cosmetic dentistry. He is extensively trained and experienced with a full array of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures. In fact, one of Dr. Romano’s favorite treatments is the Smile Makeover, a procedure that combines a number of cosmetic dentistry options to address a comprehensive range of dental concerns. Dr. Romano believes this treatment can not only change smiles, but also change lives.
Dr. Romano always wanted a career in the healthcare field, and was drawn into dentistry at an early age while observing his mother, a dental hygienist. His educational background includes:
Dr. Romano is strongly committed to the pursuit of continuing dental education in order to provide patients with the latest, most advanced treatments and techniques. In fact, he has more than doubled the state requirement for continuing education year after year. This dedication to furthering his knowledge and skills, particularly in the fields of Aesthetic Dentistry and Occlusion, reflects his commitment to bring his patients the most satisfying and long-term results possible.
In addition to his services here at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey, Dr. Romano continues to teach as an Attending Dentist at the Morristown Medical Center Dental Residency Program. He has also been honored with the position of Dental Ambassador at the prestigious Dawson Academy, an institution known among dentists as the most respected program for learning Dental Occlusion. Dr. Romano also had the privilege to be a student and then a guest instructor at Dr. Larry Rosenthal’s Aesthetic Advantage Program, a famous dental teaching academy.
“We try to make the experience as pleasant as possible. We have the most modern and up-to-date technology. We have integrity, and we are honest. We go out of our way to help our patients understand the entire process. Seeing my patients understand dentistry and creating a personal relationship with them are some of the things I enjoy most about being a dentist; helping them to enjoy (or at least not dread) coming to the office for treatment.”
If Dr. Romano seems like a familiar face, it may be due to the fact that he has appeared in numerous television programs to offer his expertise on topics related to dentistry. He was the featured dentist in a story covering laser dentistry on Dateline NBC, and has made appearances on CNN, CNN International, MSNBC, WPIX, and the Better Homes and Gardens Network. He is also a prolific speaker, having lectured across the country at a variety of prestigious conferences and symposia, including the ADA National Meeting in San Francisco, the Greater New York Dental Society Meeting, the Washington DC Dental Meeting, and the Paragon Management Group. He has also been invited to lecture at numerous study clubs, including the Morris Seminars Group right here in Morristown.
In addition to the many services available at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey, Dr. Romano and our dental team are committed to giving back to the community. We are involved with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s Give Back a Smile program, as well as the state of New Jersey’s Donated Dental Services program, which offers free dental care for the needy. We also collect for our armed forces overseas and for needy communities throughout the year.
Dr. Romano has been married to his beloved wife Anne for nearly 30 years, whom he regards as the love of his life and his best friend. He enjoys athletics, good food and wine, travel, and being with good friends and family. Dr. Romano’s hobbies include loving cars, golf, and weight-lifting. “I’m very proud of my 415lb bench press at 52 years old. Wow though, I’m still sore.”
A cosmetic dentist is trained in a special branch of dentistry dedicated to furthering the appearance and health of your teeth and gums beyond routine check-ups and dental cleanings. Cosmetic dentists not only work to improve your oral wellness with measures involving preventive care and gum disease treatment, but they also seek to achieve your dream smile. With innovative procedures designed to optimize the condition of your oral structures and restore the proportions of a youthful and healthy tooth structure, those who practice cosmetic dentistry hope to enhance your smile aesthetic in such a way that positively affects your confidence and quality of life. This may involve replacing missing teeth, correcting bite misalignments, straightening crooked teeth, repairing chips or cracks in enamel, addressing gaps, or brightening discolored teeth, among many other objectives. No matter what your reasons for treatment may be, an experienced cosmetic dentist is adept in creating personalized treatment plans that can accomplish your goals with services that range from porcelain veneers and dental implants to a complete smile makeover.
