Dr. Matt Safari, Pediatric Dentist in Little Silver, NJ

Dr. Safari’s philosophy on treating children and those with special need is to treat the whole person, not just the teeth. He believes the only way in which we can be successful in developing a healthy generation of children who are free of dental disease is by establishing good preventative and comprehensive oral care, while building self confidence in each child. Using a gentle approach, treatments are broken into small steps to acclimate very young children. Parents are encouraged to stay with children during the exams and treatment to facilitate open communication. and they are frequently amazed by what Dr. Safari can accomplish while treating even the most reluctant patients. His impressive clinical, academic and research accomplishments are complemented by his warm, enthusiastic personality.
