First Visit

First Visit

A very easy commute from Millburn, Short Hills, Chatham, Springfield, Berkeley Heights, New Providence, Mountainside, Kenilworth, Cranford, Livingston, Union, Westfield, Garwood- to name a few! NJ Dental Associates, is  located at Overlook Hospital in the MAC 1 Building. Within walking  distance of downtown Summit, NJ and the Summit transit train station. 

You will arrive in Summit to find a dedicated private parking lot in the EAST GARAGE at Overlook Hospital.  Your first visit will include a full dental examination, during which we will evaluate your oral health. If you do not have radiographs (dental x-rays) that are up to date, we will also take a set of digital x-rays so that we can properly diagnose any issues that may not be seen by the naked eye. X-rays are useful for noting the condition of the jaw, sinuses, and teeth and tissue below the gum line. These images are crucial for providing comprehensive dental care that effectively addresses your unique needs.

Once your exam is complete, your teeth will be cleaned and your dentist can prescribe further treatment if it is needed. Some patients receive a standard cleaning to thoroughly cleanse all surfaces of the teeth of plaque and other buildup. Other patients may require a more intense treatment to address cavities, tooth pain, diseased gums, or other dental problems. With your x-rays and complete evaluation, we can prescribe the treatment necessary to optimize your dental health.

We provide cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry and general dentistry for adults and children.
