I received my bachelor’s degree in biology from The University of Pennsylvania in 2010. While working in dental offices throughout college, I decided to pursue a career in the field and enrolled at the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry. In 2014 I graduated from dental school with the highest honors before undergoing an additional two and a half years of specialty training in orthodontics at the University of Colorado. I am constantly learning more about the dynamic field of orthodontics through attending continuing education courses and am committed to bringing the most up to date and efficient treatment modalities to my patients.

I feel fortunate to live and work in such a wonderful community. Being able to create beautiful smiles while forming relationships with patients and their families is why I am passionate about orthodontics.
I was raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania before moving to Philadelphia to attend college. It was at Penn where I met my wife Kathryn, a Philadelphia native and pediatric nurse. After living in Denver for my Orthodontics specialty training, Kathryn and I returned to the east coast and settled in South Jersey to be close to our families. We have three children, James, Julia and William, who keep us busy and bring so much joy to our lives. In addition to spending time with Kathryn, James, Julia, and William, I enjoy skiing, hiking, cooking, playing basketball, and cheering on the Philadelphia sports teams.
I was raised in Toms River, New Jersey, just 15 minutes from the Jersey Shore and earned my BS degree in Pharmacy from the University of Rhode Island in 1983. My journey down the path of dentistry and orthodontics began when I enrolled at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, where I attended the School of Dentistry and obtained my DDS degree. I then was chosen to participate in a one-year residency at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ. After finishing my residency in 1988, I worked in general dentistry for seven years, before returning to Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, where I received my certificate in Orthodontics and an MSD degree in 1995.
There is always something new to learn in this field, so continuing education is a must. I routinely take classes in some of the cutting-edge techniques in orthodontics like Invisalign® and digital imaging. Once I’ve learned the most up-to-date methods that are proven effective, we then integrate them into our treatment approach.

I’ve always enjoyed working with and helping people. That’s why I entered the dental field in 1987 and the orthodontic field in 1995. Seeing my patients’ reaction when they first look in the mirror after treatment gives me the greatest satisfaction. I’m blessed with a profession that allows me to provide a wonderfully fulfilling service to those in our community, which in turn, earns me the respect and kindness of so many families. I am very passionate about my treatment results and the effect it has on the confidence and self-esteem of my patients.
I donate my time as an orthodontist whenever possible and am very active in our community supporting nonprofits like Smile Train, Our Lady of Good Counsel Fashion Show, Moorestown Crew Club, Moorestown Charitable Works, and Moorestown Soccer Club. We have partnered with two other practices in Moorestown to form the Moorestown Dental Alliance, a group of local dentists who supply free services during the national program Give Kids a Smile on the first Friday in February.
I’m married to my wonderful wife and partner Dr. Mary Beth Morrone and we have three beautiful children, Allison, David, and Brian. Our Shih-Poo, Poppy acts brave, but is afraid of her own shadow! Some of my hobbies include: watching Philly sports, reading a good book and collecting coins. I very much enjoy quality time with my family, especially when we’re able to spend time together at the Jersey Shore.
Now you know a bit about me, I hope I get the chance to get to know more about you! Please drop by our office or give one of our outstanding team members a call if you’re interested in improving your smile. I very much look forward to meeting you.

Recently retired, Dr. Mary Beth Morrone was a founding member of our practice as well as a trusted partner and doctor here for 27 years. We are so grateful to have worked with her and love that she still visits the office!
"I have been truly blessed to live and work in such a wonderful community. During my time in practice I have enjoyed getting to know my patients and their families, and it is always such an honor to know that I have made a difference in so many of my patients' lives. I couldn't have asked for a better job or for better people sharing their smiles with me. I'm so proud of the work I have done and the smiles I've helped create.
My dad was a dentist and that is where my interest in orthodontics began. My husband, Dr. Richard Kaye, and I met in dental school and went into practice together in 1995. We have three wonderful children that keep us busy when we are not in the office. And now that I have more spare time, I enjoy playing tennis and crafting."
