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 Doctors
Dr. Bruce Small has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years and has experience in all phases of restorative dentistry. He has been recognized five times by his peers as one of the best dentists in New Jersey (NJ Monthly Magazine – July 2002, July 2005, July 2009, July 2010, and July 2011) as well as one of the Best Dentists in America for 2004-2005. Dr. Small was the only general dentist selected in Mercer County. He belongs to many dental organizations and is on the board of advisors and teaches at the L.D. Pankey Foundation in Key Biscayne Florida where he teaches graduate dentists (www.pankey.org). For more information about Dr. Small, please see his curriculum vitae.
Dr. Kaitlin Small graduated from dental school in 2000 and
continues her education in many ways. She also teaches at dental
school, attends educational programs regularly and belongs
to national dental organizations. She has gone way beyond the
minimum requirements for licensure and is far ahead of her
peers in her clinical skills.
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 17 years. All staff members are extremely
competent, friendly, and knowledgeable about dentistry and
can answer your questions about any dental topic. The entire office and staff is CPR certified.
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
