Meet Dr. Michael Skrobola
Hello, I’m Dr. Michael Skrobola and it is my privilege to serve you here at Bracesetters. I have been practicing orthodontics for 22 years and it is still a thrill for me to see a shy young patient blossom into a confident person as his or her smile transforms throughout treatment. Being an orthodontist is the best job in the world other than a rock star and I am grateful every day for the patients who trust me to treat them. I’m proud to provide award winning smiles for the residents of Middletown, Monroe, Newburgh, Orange County, and Monticello, NY.
I graduated with honors from Manhattan College with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and then attended Columbia University School of Dental Medicine where I graduated first in my class with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Several prestigious awards were bestowed upon me during my academic career, including the Alpha-Omega Fraternity Award for Academic Achievement throughout my four-year course of study at Columbia, the Psi-Omega Fraternity Award for highest academic achievement, the CUSDOS Alumni Award for Excellence in Operative Dentistry, the CUSDOS Alumni Award for Excellence in Stomotology, the American Academy of Dental Radiology Certificate of Recognition and the Enrico Fermi Award for Clinical Excellence. After graduation I entered a general practice residency at the world renowned Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan and received advanced dental training in all phases of dentistry. After completing my residency, my dental skills were further honed by practicing general dentistry as an associate in two private dental practices in Westchester and Orange counties. My passion for orthodontics drove me to further my schooling. I obtained my post-doctoral orthodontic certificate from Eastman Dental Center.
With a constant emphasis on continuing education to keep me on the leading edge of my profession, I am honored to be Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. I am certified in Invisalign®, Incognito, Insignia and Harmony.
I am a member of the following organizations:
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Member of Hambletonian Study Group
- Newburgh Dental Society (past president)
- Southern Orange Dental Study Group
I am married to my beautiful wife, Mary, who is a nurse with a BSN degree. We have four boys, one of whom is currently attending dental school at the University of Buffalo. When I’m not in the office I enjoy weight training, bicycling, and fishing. I have coached youth soccer and football. Find me on Google+.
