appointment is not just a cleaning. Just as an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure, the best oral health investment you can make is a regular appointment with one
of our highly skilled, knowledgeable and dedicated dental hygienists.
These New Jersey licensed dental professionals are specially trained in preventive dental care.
They are here to help you achieve and maintain good oral health. Once you have completed any dental care,
from simple fillings or crowns, to implants and
cosmetic dentistry, Lois and Nicole, prosthodontically trained
hygienists, will help you maintain your new restorations for years and years to come.
We are proud to say that each of our hygienists graduated at the top of their class during their
professional education. They, like everyone in our practice, are dedicated to continuing education
the highest level. Dr. Courey encourages each hygienist to attend multiple continuing education courses
every year (far beyond the minimum required by law) in order to ensure that our patients continue to
receive the very best care.

Each member of our dental assistant team has received certification as an Expanded Function Registered

extensive knowledge of dental procedures. Their expanded knowledge and experience allows them to execute more
comprehensive procedures and provide patients with thorough education regarding their dental health and the
preferred treatments available. Our assistants have also received additional training on the latest prosthodontic
techniques in adjusting night guards and other appliances
, as well as temporary restorations. Therefore, they are

any questions they may have.
