This was a very valuable time, in retrospect, through multiple experiences of care and time spent with many patients, she grew to know and the love the profession.

Dr. Mancuso received her B.S. in Biology from William Paterson University, in 1987, and her D.M.D. from University of Medicine and Dentistry, in 1991. She is proud to have finished in the top 10% of her class, receiving numerous awards and recognitions.
