Dr. Michael Cisar
Dental Director

Dr. Michael Cisar attended the University of Notre Dame to earn a Bachelor of Science in Biology and History. He began his dental career at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and upon graduating in 2000, went on to complete a residency program in general dentistry at the Jersey Shore Medical Center. He has continued his dental education by attending numerous continuing education courses, focusing on endodontics and implant dentistry.

Dr. Cisar was in private practice for 11 years both in Tinton Falls and Toms River prior to joining Eastern Dental. His philosophy on patient care is simple. He treats every patient as if they were a member of his own family. He believes the most important attribute a dentist can have is listening to your patient's concerns and needs so that you can better serve them.

He is an avid Notre Dame Fighting Irish fan and when he is not rooting for the Irish, he enjoys the outdoors, American History, and spending time with his wife and three children.

Dr. Aaron Prestup

Coming from a family of dentists, Dr. Aaron Prestup always loved dentistry and was designed to be a dentist himself. Even though he's been helping keep patient's gums healthy as our periodontist since 1980, he didn't start out that way.

When he graduated dental school in NJ in 1972, Dr. Prestup practiced general dentistry. He went back to Columbia in 1979 to become a Periodontic Specialist, and joined Eastern Dental the following year.

Dr. Prestup was born in Newark and grew up in Irvington, NJ. He has three children and loves kayaking, and is an avid skier. If you see him on the slopes, be sure to flash him your happy, healthy smile.
