James E. Rynar, DMD

While dental implants have been a proven solution for replacing missing teeth for more than 50 years, most “experts” are relatively new to the party. In fact, modern dental implants were introduced in the United States in 1982. Dr. Rynar was involved in these early days, and he was trained personally by a world-renown team led by Per-Ingvar Branemark. Dr. Branemark is widely recognized as the “father of dental implantology.”

Over the past 30 years, Dr. Rynar has placed thousands of dental implants and has enjoyed a 10-year success rate of greater than 95%. He has constantly enrolled in continuing education and research programs to stay current with the latest developments, and Dr. Rynar shares this knowledge freely as a Clinical Professor of Periodontics at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. In addition, he has lectured extensively throughout North America and Europe in the fields of periodontics, implantology, guided tissue regeneration, inductive therapies, antibiotics and office management. Also, he has published numerous research papers in respected, peer-reviewed journals.

Along with his exceptional base of expertise with dental implants, Dr. Rynar has earned his reputation as one of the “go-to” periodontists in metropolitan New York. He has earned Advanced Certification, achieved Fellowship status, and is a Certified Instructor for the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry. Dr. Rynar takes very seriously the role he plays in helping patients return to optimal oral health, and he knows first-hand the direct link between healthy gums and overall health and life expectancy.

Dr. Rynar earned his undergraduate degree from Brown University in Providence, RI, and he completed both his Doctoral and Post-Doctoral training at the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine at Boston University. Away from the office, Dr. Rynar enjoys traveling with his wife, Susan, and they are the proud parents of two grown children. Dr. Rynar is a competitive squash player, and he loves reading, theater, dining and fitness training.
