Thanks to the staff at Newark Smiles, I now have a beautiful smile. I never realized how many different styles there were to choose from and the staff helped me pick out a style well suited for me. Dr. Shah even called to check how I was doing after each procedure. The staff were as excited as I was about this dramatic change. Thank you Newark Smiles!

Had the best dental experience ever with the Newark Smiles staff. I felt welcomed and was treated with so much warmth and kindness.
I have been a patient for at least 15 years and will never leave. I am extremely happy with my choice to stay with this dental practice. You couldn’t ask for a better staff.
