Dr. D. Michael Hart, DDS, FAGD, MAGD
Dr. Hart feels that it is important to offer his patients the most modern services and equipment, and for the doctor to continually update his skills with continuing education. He pursues extensive continuing education in order to offer his patients the best possible dental care.
Michael received his DDS from Columbia University in 1980. He graduated in the top of the class. To further his education, he completed an intensive residency at a federal hospital in New York City, where he received training in the removal of wisdom teeth and treatment of handicapped patients. More recently, he completed a residency in dental implants at Rutgers Dental School.
Dr. Hart has earned much recognition. He was awarded the coveted Fellowship (FAGD) and achieved the prestigious rank of Mastership (MAGD) in the Academy of General Dentistry. Only one half of one percent of all dentists has received this award for continuing education. In addition, Dr. Hart has earned his second Lifetime Learning and Service Recognition (LLSR). Only 17 dentists in the United States have earned this highly prestigious recognition more than once, for continuing education and volunteer dental services to the community.

While he was president of the Metuchen/North Edison Rotary Club, the club raised funds for purchasing a van for the handicapped and seniors for the Metuchen YMCA.
