Born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Ciano didn’t have to travel too far to receive her Bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University, majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Psychology. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ).
During dental school, Dr. Ciano discovered her passion for treating children and decided to further her training by completing a residency in Pediatric Dentistry at Columbia University, New York Presbyterian Hospital. While working in Manhattan, Dr. Ciano stayed true to her Jersey roots and commuted into New York every day on her bicycle!
It was at New York Presbyterian Hospital where Dr. Ciano gained extensive experience in managing the wide array of pediatric dental emergencies as well as treating medically compromised children with extensive dental needs. She focuses her career on keeping up-to-date on the most recent advances in dental technology, dental materials, and techniques in order to provide the best possible care to her patients.
Dr. Ciano is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, The American Dental Association, The New Jersey Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the New Jersey Dental Association.
She and her husband Joe live in Montgomery Township with their two young sons. Away from the office she can be found enjoying the outdoors by running, riding her bicycle, and skiing as many days as possible when the winter comes around.
