Andrew Wilbur, DMD, MS
As a young person I experienced orthodontics as a patient, and the experience made a significant impression on me. I was amazed at the process, and also the skill and personality of the treating doctor. From that point on, a career in orthodontics was always in the back of my mind.
As a doctor, I strive to provide the very best in orthodontic care to my patients. As part of that commitment, I enjoy making the process of orthodontic treatment a positive life experience that my patients will always remember! I give my very best to each and every patient and I feel fortunate to interact with so many wonderful people every day. In particular, it gives me great joy to help young people feel good about themselves - this is the reason that I am an orthodontist.
I received a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Villanova University in 1995, which I attended on full academic scholarship. My Doctor of Dental Medicine degree was earned at the University of Pennsylvania in 1999, and I continued on to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where I completed my Master of Dental Science and received my Certificate of Orthodontics.
I am committed to staying at the forefront of advancements in the orthodontic field and frequently attend continuing education seminars. Some specific seminars that I have attended and instructed involve topics including: differential diagnosis and conservative management of TMJ disorders; prevention and management of canine impactions in adolescents; management of complex adult interdisciplinary orthodontic cases; optimal orthodontic treatment timing in adolescents, a 3-dimensional analysis.
I believe that staying involved in my community. I have been involved with Operation Smile, which provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe. I volunteer with the local animal welfare organization serving the greater Princeton area called SAVE, Our office is always running a donation drive to provide supplies to SAVE! Our office makes significant donations to local schools to support the education of children in our community, and we have given financial support to hundreds of our patients in various fund-raising, educational, and extra-curricular endeavours.
I am a native of New Jersey and have lived the Princeton / Montgomery area for over 15 years. I am an avid runner and cyclist and enjoy a variety of local biking and running events including local triathlons, half and full marathons (well, I used to run marathons!). I also love to spend time at the beach surfing, ocean swimming, and occasionally waterskiing (if I there is a good alternate boat captain onboard)!
