Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
Dr. Curatola attributes his success to his vision and determination, as well as to building a successful team around him. Dr. Curatola met his wife, Georgia Ann Condzal, at NYU while finishing dental school. They were married shortly after his graduation in 1983. They have three children together.
