An expert in oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Robert DeFalco Jr. brings exceptional leading-edge treatment to
children and adults. Patients find comfort in his skill and reassuring nature, as well as his focus on educating them.
“I explain the options so my patients can make informed decisions about their care,” says Dr. DeFalco. “Their needs
always come first, and nothing makes me happier than to see patients leave my office smiling and comfortable.”
With a genuine love for his work, Dr. DeFalco provides everything from extractions and implants, to complex
surgeries involving the jaws, face and facial skeleton. As part of the craniofacial team at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical
Center, he works primarily with children to correct cleft lip and palate, birth defects, genetic disorders and craniofa-
cial anomalies. “I really enjoy this work,” he says, “It is challenging and highly rewarding to give children something
so completely life changing.” He has also traveled to third-world countries to offer charitable reconstructive services.
In practice since 1997, Dr. DeFalco has always taken a team-oriented approach to care. After graduating from
NYU College of Dentistry, he was drawn to the surgical aspects of dentistry and pursued residency work at the East
Orange VA New Jersey Health Care System and at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.
Dr. DeFalco is grateful to receive this award. “I want to thank my staff as well as the dentists who nominated
me,” he says. “I am humbled knowing that my colleagues who refer their patients to my practice have so much
trust in me.”
