A thirst for knowledge and a passion for dentistry…

Dr. Morazan knew since his teenage years that he was going to pursue a dental degree, knowing that it was a profession that was a perfect combination of his two main interests; art and science. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from New York University College of Dentistry. Wanting to enhance his training in the provision of dental services to medically compromised patients, he completed a General Practice Residency in hospital dentistry at University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey. Afterwards he completed an Infectious Disease Fellowship at the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey. Knowing that he wanted to be in public service and provide dental care to underserved patient populations, he obtained his Master of Public Health in Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.

Answering the call of our nation…

Following his desire to serve the public, Dr. Morazan was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS). He served in several states with the Indian Health Service and the Federal Bureau of Prisons, serving the dental needs of underserved and disadvantaged patient populations. During this period, he completed temporary duty assignments the U.S. Navy during Operation Iraqi Freedom and in Louisiana during the Hurricane Katrina’s emergency relief efforts. Upon completing his USPHS tenure, he had achieved the rank of Commander and earned 12 different Awards & Citations; receiving an honorable discharge.

Providing comprehensive, personalized and high-quality dentistry…

Upon leaving the service, Dr. Morazan proceeded to establish Da Vinci Dental Arts in his hometown of Edison, New Jersey.  His vision to provide outstanding dental services while still serving the people in the community is reflected in his practice of dentistry. He has committed himself to always enhance his skills and knowledge. To achieve these goals he has completed numerous advanced training courses including the American Academy of Implant Dentistry’s Maxi-course in dental implantology, the NYU Implantology: Surgical and Prosthetic Treatment and the NYU Full Mouth Reconstruction program. His commitment to continuing education translates into better and more effective dental treatments for all his patients, in an age where phenomenal advances in dentistry are moving forward at a thunderous pace.

Teaching and mentoring young dentists…

Dr. Morazan not only wants to give back to his community, but he also wants to give back and serve the dental profession. Knowing the value of that young dental professionals can get from more experienced and motivated mentors, Dr. Morazan serves as a Clinical Assistant Faculty at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. He there teaches the graduate level residents from the General Practice Residents in the Oral Medicine Clinic. There he teaches Dental Residents all aspects of the provision of dentistry and how to integrate their theoretical knowledge and clinical skills into a comprehensive care patient experience.

Getting away from it all…

When not treating dental patients, Dr. Morazan loves spending time with his wife and his son, who can now run faster than and bench press more than he can. He enjoys hiking and swimming, but his favorite sport is baseball. He is a tried and true Dodgers fan and would love to tell you how a Jersey Boy can be a Dodger fan… he has been waiting since 1988 for another Dodgers World Series title… hopefully soon. He is also an avid traveler and enjoys spending a lot of his free time reading, and indulging on his keen interests in evolutionary biology and the historical development of the multiple hominid species and subsequent human societies.
