About Michael Duong

It may surprise patients to know that when Dr. Michael Duong begins the process of creating the perfect smile, it doesn’t start with their teeth. Instead, his approach considers the patient’s entire face, beginning with the smile he envisions for that person will have, and ending with exactly that. “Of course we want to create great bites and alignments, but our main goal is to give each patient a smile that best suits his or her individual face,” says this progressive orthodontist.

To achieve that goal, Dr. Duong offers the latest technology, including InBrace customized lingual braces, Invisalign® and the Damon® system, which involves fewer patient visits and shortens overall treatment time due to its gentle, frictionless nature.

In practice for more than a decade, Dr. Duong’s convenient Ridgewood and Newark locations provide impeccable patient care for children, teens and adults. “We pride ourselves on coaching our patients through the process,” he says. “From the moment they walk into our office, they’re really joining our family.”

Dr. Duong completed his residency at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, where he is an assistant clinical professor. He is a seven-time New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist and has been honored as a New Jersey Family Favorite Kids’ Doc.
