Dr. Jason Rothenberg
I grew up in Manalapan, NJ and started down the path of orthodontics by earning a Bachelor of Science from Pennsylvania State University. I went on to earn my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Temple University School of Dentistry, where I graduated as the top student in my class and was elected into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Honor Society. I remained at Temple to complete an orthodontic residency program and earn both a specialty certificate and a Master of Science in oral biology.
I’m proud to say I’ve been voted one of New Jersey’s top orthodontists in New Jersey Monthly Magazine, and a favorite of families in Northern New Jersey in New Jersey Family Magazine. My office is fun and casual but we’re serious about what we do. We’ve even been honored by the New York Jets as the team’s official orthodontic healthcare giver!
Away from work I enjoy playing golf and softball, physical fitness, and spending time with my family. My wonderful wife Jennifer and I have two sons, Ian and Jordan, and a cat named Cameron.
