Nothing lights up a room like an amazing smile and at Califon Orthodontics LLC in Califon, NJ we want to help you have the best smile possible.
Dr. John D. Hirce, DMD MSD is dedicated to providing his patients with top notch orthodontic services and has done so for more than 30 years. Along the way, he’s treated hundreds of folks just like you. His staff loves to help patients and provides them with professional, quality service at an affordable price.
Dr. Hirce received his undergraduate degree with honors from Saint Bonaventure University. He went on to New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry where he received his D.M.D. degree after graduating first in his class.
He was invited to teach restorative dentistry at Southern Illinois University for two and a half years before being accepted in a three year orthodontic residency at the Mayo Clinic, a program which accepts only one resident per year. He graduated with a certificate in Orthodontics from the Mayo Clinic and a Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) from the University of Minnesota.
Returning to the east coast, he accepted a position as associate professor in the orthodontic department at Fairleigh Dickinson University. He began his orthodontic practice in Califon in 1980 and continued to teach for eight years before devoting his full time to the Califon practice.
Dr. Hirce has lectured nationally and internationally. He has published articles in the American Journal of Orthodontics and sat on their article review committee for several years.
