She is a member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and she is Board eligible as recognized by this organization.

Born and raised in New Jersey and a graduate from Hoboken’s own Stevens Institute of Technology, Dr. Carunchio feels right at home in her new practice setting.

She is extremely family oriented, loves spending time with her French Bulldog puppy “Meatball,” and she got married to her husband Joel in October.
Dr. Carunchio owes her keen attention to detail and her fine hand skills to her late father and mentor in the field, Dr. Michael L .Carunchio, a successful practicing dentist in northern NJ until his passing in 2014.
