As a patient you have many options when choosing a dentist.
It is an important decision for many reasons and we would like
to give you an idea of what we feel is important and makes
our office a unique place.

Experience of the Staff
Rather than seeing a different person at the front desk or assisting the doctors each time you come to the office our staff has been with the office for up to 26 years. All staff members are extremely knowledgeable about dentistry and can answer your questions about any dental topic. In addition all staff members are CPR certified each year.
Our office is located near major highways
(Rt #1, 295, and 95 in New Jersey). There is ample parking
underneath our building out of the weather and elevator service
to the second floor. We have complete wheelchair access including
is a big advantage for dentists to have an in house laboratory.
In our office we do much of the lab work here for many of our
cases and all of the lab work for our cast gold inlays, onlays,
crowns and bridges. There are two high powered microscopes
in the office that are used daily to check the accuracy and
fit of your work prior to putting it in your mouth.
Due to the experience of the
doctors our office is unique in offering a full spectrum
of dental services. We are interested in the longevity of your
dental care and will suggest materials and restorations that
will give you the longest lifetime of service. Sometimes
this will be tooth colored restorations and sometimes it may
be gold colored restorations. Please be assured that in all
cases esthetics is a primary factor and of course you will
have input into the final decisions. We are one of the very
few offices in the country that offer all ceramic restorations
as well as cast gold and direct gold or gold foils which have
the potential to last your lifetime. Both doctors have been
trained by some of the finest teachers in dentistry and now
