Jeffrey's Story

In addition to his Excelsior (Regents) degree, Stewart completed a Bachelor of Arts in applied mathematics from Drew University and a Master’s of Public Administration from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Most recently, he completed a Doctorate of Dental Medicine as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Endodontics from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Dental School.
