Dr. Fusaro is also a member of the Commonwealth Study Club.
Dr. Fusaro has been a dentist since 1995. He practiced as an independent contractor for 2.5 years for the Air Force in Warner Robins, Georgia. He was also an associate for a cosmetic practice in Arlington, Virginia before becoming a partner at Fredericksburg Dental Care in August 1999.
He is married to Teri and has three children. His son, Grayson was born in 1998 and his daughter Annalese, was born in 2002. His third child and his second son, Ian, was born in 2005.
