Established in 1972 by Dr. Gary Cuozzo, a board-certified orthodontist and former NFL quarterback, Cuozzo Orthodontics provides the most advanced methodology in orthodontic treatment for patients in central New Jersey. Dr. Patrick T. Cuozzo joined his father in 1997 and purchased the practice five years later.
A Family Legacy of Dental Excellence
With Dr. Pat’s grandfather, uncles, aunt and brother-in-law also practicing dentistry, the Cuozzo family has a legacy of creating beautiful smiles that span three generations.
“Orthodontics is our specialty; it’s all we do and we do it well,” says Dr. Pat.
Providing the Finest Orthodontic Experience
The state-of-the-art practice focuses on the dentofacial development of each child and offers a range of braces and appliances. Dr. Pat and his team have made it their mission to keep patients in braces for as little time as possible.
“We’re committed to beginning the orthodontic process at the right time; many children are getting braces at age
7 or 8 and end up having to wear them twice and for several years—but our average treatment time is two years from start to finish,” he says.
A diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Pat graduated from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Dr. Pat continued his education to become an orthodontic specialist at Penn and completed with a certificate of specialty in ’97. He’s been teaching at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine for the past two decades.
“The best part is looking back at a patient’s original photo with their parents and seeing how amazed they are with the results,” he says. “It’s our mission to create beautiful smiles while providing the finest orthodontic experience.”
