Dr. Thomas G. Botis, DMD, FAGD
I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in chemistry from Cook College, Rutgers University. I then received a Doctorate in Dental Medicine from The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. I am a member of the Southern Jersey Dental Society, the New Jersey Dental Society, the American Dental Society and the Academy of General Dentistry. After fulfilling numerous requirements and passing the Fellowship Exam, I was awarded Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.
I relocated from Perth Amboy and opened this practice in 1979 with the very simple philosophy that you should always place the needs of the patient first and foremost. I have taken over 1066 hours of continuing education credits since graduation. Over the years there have been great advances in dentistry and I make every effort to keep abreast of the latest benefits for my patients.
I have performed volunteer dentistry with Remote Area Medical (RAM) in rural Tennessee and volunteer at the Cathedral Kitchen in Camden.
A lifelong New Jersey resident, I married in 1976 and have two daughters, Stasia and Lydia.
Andrea has been the Office Administrator and member of our dental team for 6 years. She handles anything from appointments, insurance claims, treatments plans, and financial policies with enthusiasm. She has obtained a Certified Dental Assistant title along with a Dental Radiography License in the State of New Jersey. She finds comfort in our family practice and values our patients care.
Judy is a Registered Dental Hygienist who graduated from Middlesex County College in Edison, NJ. Relocating to South Jersey in 1988, she became a member of Dr. Botis’ staff. Working in a family oriented practice, she has been rewarded by seeing patients grow-up, marry, and retire- often bringing their spouses and children into the practice. She receives satisfaction when our patients return with better dental health through her care and advice.
Sandy has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 38 years. She received her Associate in Science from Camden County College in 1976. She has been a significant part of our working family here for the last 21 years. She finds it rewarding to be able to help and maintain her patients’ dental health. Sandy embraces the ever evolving changes and advancements in dentistry treatments since she began in this profession.
