After attending college, Batastini originally pursued a career in banking but he could not escape following in his family’s orthodontic footsteps.

That led him to obtaining his dental degree from Temple University and later his orthodontic certificate from the University of Pennsylvania. “After spending several years in my father’s practice there was no doubt that orthodontics was the right career for me and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it over the last 25 years,” he says. Batastini is a member of several professional societies and is a past president of the New Jersey Southern Dental Society. He has accomplished the Invisalign Master Program and lectures at area colleges. Together with his staff, Batastini has supported the Make-A-Wish pasta and crabs dinner for more than 10 years.
