Patient Forms, Map and Directions to Montclair Office
Your first visit to Upper Montclair Dental Associates establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page. You'll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more. There's also background information about our committed staff and our first visit procedures. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance of your appointment.
What makes our Office rather unique is our comprehensive approach in evaluating and in treatment. A single tooth alone cannot walk through our doors. People do. What may be perceived as a tooth problem may have started as a gum (periodontal) problem, or a bite problem, or a problem from bad habits. We evaluate the entire craniomandibular system: your teeth, gums, bone, ligaments, jaws joints, and musculature. How all of those parts work together bio-mechanically is often left as clues on your teeth and in your gums. It makes a simple treatment plan simpler, and clarifies the more complex treatment plan. All of this is done so we may educate you on your oral health, and offer you options and solutions to fit our care into your lifestyle.
Office hours are by appointment only. Our Office is warm, quaint, and friendly. The atmosphere is jovial. We try not to take ourselves too serious. The staff is second to none. They are the most integral part of our practice. Their proficiency and expertise allow the doctors to spend more time with you. Simply put, we are a family. And our family extends an invitation to meet yours!
Our mission is to be your advocate, first and foremost, and provide each patient with superior, individualized, and comprehensive oral healthcare nurtured by a relationship based practice, between doctor and patient and staff. Through co-discovery, dialogue, respect, then admiration, the highest level of care may be experienced by all who mutually participate and share.
