NJ Monthly Magazine “Top Dentists”
2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2015
Since 1972, I have been proud to serve the communities of Basking Ridge, Mendham, and Bedminster. The relationships that I’ve built with my patients and my staff over the last 30 years mean a lot to me, and I feel blessed that so many patients and families have chosen to work with me. Orthodontics is my passion, and I look forward to all of the new smiles I have yet to work with. I am so pleased to welcome you to Banasiak and Nettune Orthodontic Associates.
I graduated from Bergen Catholic High School in 1961, and attended Temple University. Graduating in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science degree, I began my pursuit of becoming an orthodontist. I attended the New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry from 1966 to 1970 where I graduated Cum Laude with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. From 1970 to 1972, I attended Loyola University where I earned my certificate of specialty in orthodontics and a Master’s of Science degree, graduating cum laude.
I have been honored to receive many prestigious awards in my field, including Diplomate status with the American Board of Orthodontics (board certified), the Calvin Case Award, Clinical Achievement Award, Orthodontic Department Award, and the Diagnostic and Radiology Award.
As an orthodontist, I believe it is essential for me to continue my education in order to offer my patients the most advanced orthodontic treatment options and the highest quality care. Membership in the American Association of Orthodontists, The Mid-Atlantic Society, The Tri-County Dental Society, and the New Jersey Association of Orthodontists allow me the opportunities to keep current with the technological advances in orthodontics.

A Commitment to Family and the Communities I Serve
I enjoy being a part of the community as much as I enjoy serving my community. I love sports, and for many years, I was active as a basketball coach for a local high school team. Prior to this, I coached CYO basketball. As a sponsor of community Little League and soccer teams, I offer custom sport mouthguards to all of the athletes free of charge. I believe in supporting local schools and each year I am happy to present a scholarship award to graduates of Ridge High School, Mendham High School and Bernardsville High School.
During Dental Health Month, I enjoy visiting local schools to share information about dental health, and I also enjoy participating in the schools’ various fundraisers. As a staff member of Morristown Memorial Hospital, I have donated my services to the Dental Health Clinic for many years, as I believe everybody deserves a beautiful smile.
My lovely wife Donna and I live in New Jersey along with our children and their families. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting with my children and my wonderful grandchildren. I also enjoy traveling, tennis, and I consider myself an avid golfer.
