Paul A. Bogden, D.M.D.
Dr. Bogden was born and raised in New Jersey. He has been a dentist in Flemington since 1979, growing his practice from a quaint, two room wood-and-beam structure to the state-of-the-art medical facility you see today.
Dr. Bogden first received a BS in Electrical Engineering from Lafayette College in Easton, PA, and went on to receive his Doctorate in Medical Dentistry (DMD) from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, now part of Rutgers University School of Dental Medicine. He then completed his dental residency in Holyoke, Massachusetts, before returning to New Jersey to begin his practice. Dr. Bogden is a member of the New Jersey Dental Association, a lifetime member of the American Dental Association, and a member of the Central New Jersey Dental Society.
Dr. Bogden lives with his wife, Beverly, in Raritan Township. He has two (now adult) children, Steven and Kate, who live in New York City and London, respectively. The Bogdens also have a shy but lovable cat named Lola. An avid traveler, in 2006 he and his son climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, one of the highest peaks in the world. On his days off you can almost always find Dr. Bogden at Copper Hill playing a round of golf, his favorite pastime.
