Dr. Bolen started his career as a chemist but when a friend, his dentist, made a comment about going to dental school; he decided it was the thing to do. After completing dental school at UMDNJ-NJDS in 1984, he joined a practice in Piscataway where he practiced for 21 years. When a practice became available in Princeton in 2006 it was a perfect choice.
