Tara Gostovich, DMD
I love orthodontics!!! Being an orthodontist allows me the opportunity to make a difference not only in a patient’s smile but in patients’ lives. I get to treat a spectacular array of patients who are truly in for a life changing experience in our office!! I am so excited about the field of Orthodontics today! We have so many new and more effective ways to move teeth and create beautiful, healthy smiles in less time with little discomfort. Every day I look forward to helping my patients Live Life Smiling!!
I am a graduate of Rutgers University (Undergraduate), The University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey (Dental School) and The University of Pennsylvania (Orthodontic Residency). While it takes years of education and hard work to get accepted into an orthodontic residency program, you soon learn that your residency is not the “beginning of the end” of your years of education. Rather, it is the “end of the beginning”. I am committed to excellence in orthodontics and, therefore, am continually learning new techniques and innovations in this exciting field. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and believe that being Board-Certified is a standard to which all orthodontists should hold themselves. In addition, I have active memberships in The American Association of Orthodontists, The American Dental Association, The New Jersey Association of Orthodontists, The Mid-Atlantic Society of Orthodontists and the Monmouth-Ocean County Dental Society. Being a member in these associations enables me to keep up with the latest and best that Orthodontics has to offer.
My extensive education and experience allows me to treat children and adults with the most up-to-date technologies. We offer traditional braces (metal or ceramic), Invisalign, Invisalign Teen and Incognito appliance systems.
In addition to private practice, I am a former Clinical Associate Professor of Orthodontics at The University of Pennsylvania. I live in Marlboro with my husband and sons, and when I am not working I love reading, attempting to cook, fussing in my rose garden and spending lazy days at the beach.
