38

Name of Practice:

Summit Periodontics and Dental Implants

Specialty:

Periodontics

Education:

DDS, New York University College of Dentistry; M.S. and certificate in periodontics, Rutgers Dental (formerly known as UMDNJ) WHY SHE WAS NOMINATED: The first thing Dr. Maloney did after taking over her former professor’s practice was purchase computers for every room in the nearly 40-year-old space. Having turned her office into a modern paperless facility, she now lectures on the latest periodontic and implant technologies. Innovative dentistry is a family affair: Her husband, oral surgeon Dr. Karl Maloney, was an Incisal Edge 40 Under 40 honoree in 2016. He runs his own practice a few towns over.
