About Miriam T. Furlong
Dr. Miriam Furlong is celebrating her 20th year as an orthodontist having built a practice with a reputation for stellar customer service. “My team and I put a lot of energy into providing the little extra touches,” she says. “That includes celebrating ‘braces on’ and ‘braces off’ milestones, birthdays and good grades. We also maintain a strong social media presence and do everything we can to make the experience more enjoyable for children and adults.”
Dr. Furlong, along with her associate Dr. Maureen T. Bennett, offers early, two-phase treatment for young children, cosmetic techniques such as Invisalign® and the full gamut of orthodontic services. Her practice features the very latest technology. “Digital equipment has certainly made treatments better and safer,” she says. “But it’s still important to have the guidance of an expert to make sure you or your children are receiving the best care possible. We work very hard to build that level of trust with all of our patients.”
Very active in the community, Dr. Furlong and her team host holiday gift drives for needy families; organize a Halloween candy buyback program where candy is donated to the military and money is donated to a local food pantry; offer two high school scholarships; and perform pro bono dental treatment annually. Last year, she opened a second office located within a pediatric practice in Manahawkin.
