Meet Our Doctors

Steven Katz, DDS

Co-Founder and Dentist “Emeritus”

Meet Our Doctors - Dr. Steven Katz - Advanced Cosmetic DentistryDr. Steven Katz began our dental practice with best friend Dr. Milt Noveck. They went to primary and middle school together, and although they didn’t go to the same dental school, they kept in touch and in their junior year of dental school they decided to open a practice together in Mays Landing.

“We started on a shoestring,” says Dr. Katz. “And we were the only students in both our respective dental schools to open a practice from scratch right out of dental school!”

They saw their first patients in August of 1980 and the practice quickly grew, until in 1983 they could open another location in Somers Point and in 1989 they built their own building.

In 2009 Dr. Katz had to retire from active dentistry, although he has continued to stay up-to-date on advances in dentistry. His son, Dr. Bryan Katz, left his service as a dentist in the Air Force mid 2014 and has joined the practice to take over from his father. Dr. Katz continues to mentor his son and provides guidance to the practice in practice management.

“I plan on still hanging out at the office on a regular basis” says Dr. Katz, “being where I like to be best!”

Possibly the most lasting impression Dr. Noveck leaves with his patients is of his kindness and genuine interest in their well-being. It’s his mission to provide the highest level of dentistry with the greatest chance for long-term results while making his patients feel completely at ease. “I like to treat each patient as I would like to be treated, and as I would treat any member of my own family,” explains Dr. Noveck.
