Morris Sussex Oral Surgery Associates, LLCP8

My name is Kurt Notarnicola.  I was born and raised in Lawrence, NY.  I attended college at Binghamton University in upstate NY.  I then attended the New York University College of Dentistry where I graduated as class salutatorian. I completed my Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at the Seton Hall University School of Graduate Medical Education.  My residency consisted of four years of hospital training at Jersey City Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ, and at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA.

I have been practicing Oral Surgery privately since 2005.  In 2009, I founded Morris Sussex Oral Surgery Associates and in 2017 we expanded to a second location.


I am a member of numerous professional societies including the American Dental Association, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.  I am Board Certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. 

Previously, I have been an instructor in basic life support and advanced cardiac life support.  I have also taught at New Jersey Dental School. Currently, I am an attending surgeon at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where I teach and work with the oral surgery residents.

I hold a clinical assistant faculty position at New York Medical College and I have also completed a one-year Master Clinician program in implant dentistry. 

While at Jersey City Medical Center, I met my future wife, Dao, who is also a dentist.  We were married in 2005 and now are the proud parents of two boys, Vincent and Anthony.  We have lived in Sussex County for the past six years.


I am a big fan of the Devils, Giants and Yankees.  In my spare time, the boys and I enjoy camping, hiking and fishing in the local lakes. We go to as many Devils games as we can get to!  The kids and I also like to visit civil war historical sites, Gettysburg is our favorite vacation spot (but not my wife’s)!

I am also a Cubscout Den Leader for Pack 80!

If you can’t pronounce my last name, you can just call me Dr. Kurt, I don’t mind at all!
