Dr. Sgroi attended Franklin High School in Somerset NJ. After high school, he went on to the University of SC with aspirations to be a football player. He graduated with a BS and ended up teaching high school chemistry in SC for a few years. Dr. Sgroi went on to pursue a Masters in Science Education at UMDNJ (now Rutgers Dental School).
Dr. Sgroi has been in private practice since 1977, giving him 40+ years of experience. Besides practicing dentistry, he also has a passion for teaching. Because of this, he taught at a dental school for 20 years in the department of restorative and diagnostic sciences at UMDNJ (now Rutgers). This means he has had the privilege of reaching many of the dentists that practice in the area. A lot of them still come to him for advice.
Dr. Sgroi is a rarity in the dental field nowadays where his dental practice is attached to his home. This gives a more personal connection with his patients.
From Dr. Sgroi,
“As a dentist for 40+. I try to treat patients as I would my family with old fashion values but modern concepts. Firmly believing in traditional and homeopathic approaches. Offering all patients the option of BIO-COMPATABILITY testing of dental materials before treatment. I prefer to limit use of metals in my practice that includes mercury! That is one reason for my interest in the ceramics in dentistry, as such I am Asst. Professor at NJ Dental School and have lectured on all aspects of cosmetics.”
