Our Dental Practice

At Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey, we are committed to the pursuit of excellence. We are here not only to educate you about the latest advances in dentistry but to listen to you, as well. We want to hear what it is that you want and the smile you desire to have. Our goal is to provide you with outstanding customer service and to exceed your expectations not only in terms of the beautiful dental results but the ambiance of our office and the relationship we develop with our patients. Our Totowa, New Jersey, dental practice is proud to serve patients in the surrounding towns of Verona, Cedar Grove and Caldwell.

When you visit our brand-new dental spa, you will be greeted with a friendly smile and invited to relax beside the fireplace with the beverage of your choice, either warm or cold, from our refreshment bar. Our massage chair is the perfect pre-treatment relaxation device, and the live reef aquarium is calming and tranquil. Our office was designed with your total comfort in mind.

Even the operations have been specifically tailored to your comfort, health and safety. Everything we use for your care is either disposable or sterilized in our dedicated sterilization area. Our digital X-rays provide superior diagnostic images that can be enlarged and color enhanced while exposing you to up to 90% less radiation than traditional films. Gentle ultrasonic cleanings make your hygiene visits pleasant and enjoyable.

We utilize a variety of techniques and equipment to enhance your comfort, including air abrasion “no-drill” dentistry, topical anesthetics and nitrous oxide. Lasers enable sutureless oral surgery with little discomfort and no bleeding. We even have a state-of-the-art computerized anesthesia delivery system so that the initial injection is no longer something to the concerned about. At the conclusion of your appointment, you are offered a warm towel to freshen up with and a delightfully warm and soothing paraffin bath for your hands.

At Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey, everything we do is centered around accurate diagnosis. We meet with you individually to discuss your needs and desires and to review your medical and dental history. We then perform a thorough exam that includes an oral cancer screening, intraoral photographs and any X-rays necessary to adequately assess your dental health and jaw function. Dr Jerry M. Strauss spends a significant amount of time after hours reviewing all this information about you. He then takes the time necessary to explain your treatment options and answer all of your questions. Our patients tell us that they have never experienced such thorough, caring dentistry, and that is a reputation we are proud to have.

Because of his commitment to stay abreast of the latest advancements in dentistry, Dr. Strauss has trained in the area of neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry involves determining how the jaw, alignment and occlusion of the teeth, and facial muscles interact. Misalignment, uneven wearing of the teeth or an improper bite can cause a myriad of medical problems, including but not limited to headaches, neck and facial pain, and muscle cramps throughout the upper body. Utilizing electromagnetic and ultrasonic scanning devices, Dr. Strauss can determine the proper alignment of your teeth and jaw and create the proper bite necessary to alleviate the pain and discomfort.

Many patients are afraid of dental treatment and as such may have avoided it for many years. As a result, some people are too embarrassed by the condition of their teeth to see a dentist. At Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey, we understand that this is a very real fear and not something to be taken lightly. There is no reason to be ashamed or embarrassed in our office. We have had wonderful success treating seriously dental-phobic patients because we take special care to make even the most fearful patients comfortable in the office and with their treatment. Our practice is a member office in DOCS — the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. This means that we are trained and certified to administer oral medication that enables you to be so completely relaxed during dental treatment that you may feel almost nothing and later have no recollection of having been in our office. Many patients tell us that after having treatment done with the benefit of conscious sedation, they wake up the next morning to the shock and delight of a beautiful new smile.

Our practice has grown from the referrals of many of your friends and family who have put their trust in Dr. Strauss, our dentist who truly cares about them. No matter what your dental needs and desires are, we have the solution. Whether you are primarily interested in maintaining your dental health with regular checkups or would like a dental makeover to create a whole new you, Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey can help. Our goal is to provide superb dental care so that you can have great-looking teeth and a healthy, well-functioning mouth.
