As you know by now, because your overall health and safety is our utmost priority, we are closely following every safety and infection control procedure recommended by the ADA and CDC. However, going way beyond these recommendations, in July we installed 2 Jade Surgically Clean Air Filtration Systems. Our office size would require only one Jade unit to kill viruses and bacteria 6 times an hour, but we are so committed to you that we have installed 2 units, one in front of each dental chair. You can be assured that our air is always the safest because we leave the systems on 24/7.

The Jade is patented and industry-leading and is the only air purification system that incorporates 6 different technologies which include, Hydroxl, UV and electronic cell catalytics, and Hepa-RX. The Jade is measured and peer-reviewed to eliminate viruses less than 0.1 microns (the corona virus is measured at .125 microns) and is tested globally with over 70,000 units installed worldwide.

With our warmest wishes for your health and safety, we look forward to seeing you soon and continuing to keep you as healthy as possible.

    Dr. Cortese and his office team do a really great job taking care of TMJ patients. Many dentists claim to specialize in TMJ, but finding a specialist in this area who really knows their stuff is very hard. I felt that Dr. Cortese really is an expert in this area. He put me on a personal care plan that involved the creation of custom day-time and night-time devices. After a few months, I feel much better and my pain is almost gone. Thank you Dr. C and your great and caring office staff. You have done right by me!

    Dr. Cortese is a wonderful dentist! He has basically redone all my teeth within the last year! Now when people see me smile, they tell me how great my teeth look! I'm so happy with the work he has done and would recommend him to anyone who has issues with their teeth! His staff is also exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable!

    I’ve been a patient of doctor Cortese’s for years and I wouldn’t dream of letting anyone one else treat me! His staff is also friendly, professional and while going to the dentist isn’t my favorite past-time, I trust the advice and the procedures recommended.

    Dr. Cortese has been my dentist for many years. Not only is he great at what he does but, it's just comfortable to be sitting in his chair!... Dr. Cortese is an artist at work! The result is that I have a beautiful smile. Thank you Dr. Cortese, "You are the Best"!

    Dr. Cortese has been my dentist for many years. Even though I don’t live very close to the Princeton office anymore, I still go to him regularly. Once I find a doctor that I trust and that does amazing work, I stick with him/her- whatever the distance. His work is truly amazing and he makes me feel comfortable and at home. He is a really great person and an outstanding dental professional.

    I wholeheartedly recommend him and his staff! His assistant, Melissa is a true gem! Both of them make my visits pleasant even though dental visits are not generally known to be pleasant.

    I have extremely high expectations for the degree of professionalism, courtesy, and patience I receive from medical experts. In this era of profit-based medicine and of MDs and DMDs who seem to feel the world owes them something, these expectations are often unmet. Not so with Dr. Michael Cortese.

    I have relied on him for dental health and appearance for the past 15 years, and have never been disappointed. I have never met a dentist or doctor whom I would call an “artist” other than him; he never pronounces a job finished until every millimeter of real or prosthetic tooth is perfectly fixed. And if he is performing that kind of artistry on the patient before me in line, his staff always gives me a heads-up that I can come in a few minutes late.

    He has bailed me out of several painful problems, and once even met me at his office late at night to replace a broken front tooth so I could appear in public the next morning without upsetting the squeamish. He will earn your thanks and your trust from the first visit.

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.

“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.”

“After years of failed attempts by other dentists, Dr. Cortese was able to put a smile on my face.
