Michael B. Gale, DMD
Dr. Michael Gale has been practicing the art and science of dentistry for 33 years, almost all of them with Dr. Hodgdon at Down Neck Family Dentistry. Over the years, he has gotten to see many of his patients grow from children into young adults who are proud of their smiles and dental health. He values the ability he has to make such an important impact on their lives, and he enjoys the technical challenge of restorative dentistry and the personal interactions he has with each patient.
Dr. Gale attended Fairleigh Dickenson University for his undergraduate education, and received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Since graduating in 1979, Dr. Gale has taken numerous continuing education courses in many aspects of dentistry in order to stay current with new technology.

A native of Newark, Dr. Gale now resides in Westfield with his wife, Emilia. Their family consists of five children and two grandchildren. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, bicycling, running, and home improvement projects.
