Dr. Elizabeth Fanciullo

Dentistry is Dr. Elizabeth Fanciullo’s passion; in fact, it has been a part of her family since the late 1800s, when her great-grandfather started a practice. In more than a century since, her grandfather, great uncle, uncle and cousin have dedicated their lives to the field. Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, “Dr. Liz” was an award-winning television reporter and producer in her hometown TV market. But, it never felt quite right to her. So, like generations of relatives before her, she decided to become a dentist – and, immediately, she knew she had found her life’s work. Dr. Liz received her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, where she was on the Dean’s List and a member of the Prosthodontics Honors Society, which recognizes top students in the field of restorative dentistry. She then completed a General Practice Residency at Jersey City Medical Center. Dr. Liz is a member of the American Dental Association, New Jersey Dental Association, and Monmouth-Ocean Counties Dental Society. Dr. Liz and her husband moved to Monmouth County in 2017 and love to explore all the area has to offer. In her spare time, she loves working out at the gym, cooking delicious meals and hanging out with her husband and adorable mini dachshund, Tootsie.
