His experience and training in maxillofacial surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic care delivered safely and comfortably.
Family and community are important parts of Dr. Clemenza’s life. As a tribute to his late sisters, who were both dentists, he established the Drs. Carolyn and Mariann Clemenza Scholarship Fund to provide two individual scholarships to support women pursuing higher education in the healthcare field
