He received his periodontal certificate from the University of Pennsylvania in 1986 and his orthodontic certificate from New York University in 1988. He has authored numerous publications in dental literature; his pioneering work regarding the use of implants in conjunction with orthodontics is groundbreaking and has been extensively published. He has been involved in postgraduate teaching for over 20 years, is a recognized speaker nationally and internationally, and maintains a private practice in Manhattan. Dr. Celenza is a past president of the Northeastern Society of Periodontists.Dr. Celenza comes from a long line of distinguished dental practitioners. His father, Dr. Frank V. Celenza, was a world-renowned prosthodontist who made many inroads into international teaching and research while maintaining a large practice in Manhattan. Dr. Celenza’s brother, Vincent, now heads that practice and is active in teaching, and he was also a past president of the Northeastern Gnathological Society.
Dr. Celenza lives in New Jersey with his three children. He pursues other passions outside of dentistry, which include sports car racing (in which he is a two-time National Champion), competitive cycling (frequently commuting to work by bike), writing, and computer technology (which is immediately apparent upon entering our office).
