Stephen J. Glawson Sr., DMD, OMFS

Meet Oral Surgeon Dr. Glawson

From the time my family moved to Toms River from Marine Base Yuma Arizona in 1964. We knew this was our last duty station!

I attended Saint Joseph Grade school and graduated from Toms River H.S. South. The teachers, and coaches, that I had the pleasure to interact with, were outstanding. I still have a tight group of friends from our championship wrestling team at TRHS. I wrestled division 1 at VCU and later Dental school at Farleigh Dickinson College of Dental Medicine, in Hackensack N.J. (I got to see what life in North Jersey was all about!) I also met my future wife Dororthy there.

Out of Dental school, I joined the the United States Navy and deployed with a Marine expeditionary group. Stepped off ship got married.  After three more tours on land and ship, I had the opportunity to continue my education at the Nassau County Medical Center in Long Island, a Level 1 trauma center. I separated from the Navy for a four year residency in Oral & Maxillofacial Sugery and I returned to Toms River with another son!

I became a partner with Oral Surgeon associates, now known as OMFS of Ocean County I have been blessed to treat some of the most terrific people in the New Jersey.  Four children later and a continued career in the Navy reserve have been challenging but a true blessing. I thank my wife for all her support and the outstanding children. 

My latest challenge allows me to give back to wrestling.  We had the first winning season in the schools fifty year history, it is great to see the confidence that the sport builds and the dedication they learn in order to succeed. My staff and  I strive to provide the best treatment and followup that we can provide, the ability to give back to an area that I grew up in and gained so much from is a true honor.
