Welcome to Our Practice

New Notice as of May 20, 2020


COVID-19 Office Update - Please Read This Message

In accordance with the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs and the NJ State Board of Dentistry's request that all elective surgeries and treatments be postponed until June 5th, we will conform to those directives and remain closed for all elective therapies. PLEASE READ:  all elective and invasive surgeries and treatment may begin again on May 26th.  We appreciate Governor Murphy’s moving up the date from June 6th, however it is premature in our belief, as more time is required to prepare even further than we already are. 

It is our intent to open June 8th but in the most responsible fashion.  Please know we are working diligently on furthering our efforts to ensure you the safe, comfortable atmosphere you expect in the practice of our caliber, through education and researching auxiliary methods enabling us to deliver our treatment with  even more comprehensive management of infection control, and the potential for testing.  

In the coming weeks you will receive updates on the protocols for patients entering the office, starting with a simple, streamlined digital questionnaire from your location.  Please visit www.uppermontclairdental.com and click the COVID-19 tab on the top toolbar, read and view the newest equipment we procured, ensuring an unsurpassed level of safety.

Please like us on Facebook at Upper Montclair Dental Associates and follow for further updates.
