Dr. Haim Tawil first began his college education at Rutgers University where he studied bio-engineering. He then attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine as well as his Masters in the Science of Engineering.

During his final year of residency, Dr. Tawil served as the chief resident. He now lives in Bergen County with his wife, a nurse, and their baby girl.
