About Berkeley Heights Dental Group
Berkeley Heights Dental Group opened in January of 2004. Since then, our goal has been to provide great quality dentistry customized to fit the individual needs of our patients and their families. We believe in providing a personal touch catered toward the individual’s needs. As a home-office, we are part of the community and treating patients as friends and neighbors is very important to us.
Since 2004, Berkeley Heights Dental Group has grown from a brand new office to serving the dental needs of over 4500 patients. Most of our patients hail from Berkeley Heights, Chatham, Gillette, New Providence, Warren, and Watchung. However some patients seek our care from Arizona, Pennsylvania, Florida, the Carolinas, and as far away as Europe and South America.
Berkeley Heights Dental Group provides services from all aspects of dentistry for the entire family. We also work with specialists from the area to provide the best comprehensive care possible. As for our youngest cliental, we will always go that extra mile to make a child’s dental experience a special one. We take pride in our Early Childhood Dental Education Presentations that we provide for Union Village School and The Academy of Our Lady of Peace.
For your convenience we provide Evening and Saturday appointments, and 24 hour emergency services.
