Located in the heart of Woodcliff Lake, Chestnut Ridge Dental’s team of experienced, skilled dentists provide the highest quality dental care for residents around the Pascack Valley area. This general practice sees a wide range of patients—from children to adults, geriatrics, and special needs, providing all facets of dentistry under one roof.
The practice is home to five experienced dentists who have lived and raised their families in northern New Jersey for years. Dr. Samuel Mufson, Dr. Joseph Lota, Dr. Christopher Lota, Dr. Vincent Capazzi and Dr. Megan Gauthier. They have vast practical experience in all areas of family dentistry, providing services that include cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign® dental implants, TMJ and TMD treatments, fillings, hygiene, crowns, bonding, and dentures—virtually any service required for healthy teeth and gums.
The group’s other area of expertise is their ability to make procedures stress-free and keep their patients comfortable and relaxed. Their experience and professionalism will put even the most anxious patient at ease.
“We have an incredible team of front desk receptionists, dental assistants, hygienists, and an office manager who are all devoted to creating a positive experience for each patient who walks through our door, says Dr. Mufson. “We even have an oral surgeon and an anesthesiologist available on request for our patients’ convenience.”
This practice stands head and shoulders above others because of its friendly and accommodating atmosphere. “We take the time to explain the procedure, the cost, and review insurance estimates if they apply,” says Dr. Mufson. “We ensure patients clearly understand their financial obligations before they begin treatment.”
Most people may not consider visiting the dentist to address sleep apnea symptoms, but the Chestnut Ridge Team can also address this disorder. Sleep apnea is a condition in which breathing repeatedly starts and stops through the night. It is generally treated with a C-PAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Machine). “Many patients come to us because they cannot tolerate the C-PAP,” says Dr. Mufson. “We provide them with a mouthguard which fits better and is more comfortable. Patients that travel frequently find the mouthguard is much easier to bring along rather than a large C-PAP machine.”
Another sought-after specialty of the practice is Invisalign®, a system of clear braces which serve as a non-metal alternative to straighten teeth without metal wires or brackets. Each aligner set is custom-made for a patient’s teeth and gradually moves their teeth into an ideal position over time.
After an initial consultation, the patient’s mouth is thoroughly scanned, and the doctor is able to share a “before” and “after” image with the patient. The information is sent to Invisalign, and the doctor is provided with a clinical outline for the patient’s individualized treatment process. Once the process is reviewed and accepted by the dentist and patient, the treatment is ordered. “When we receive the aligners, we add the appropriate attachments to their teeth and start the process,” says Dr. Mufson. “Patients are given a few sets of aligners and instructions on how to clean and change them. They are usually seen once per month to monitor progress and dispense new aligners.”
Upon completing the Invisalign treatment, the patient is given a set of retainers to maintain their perfect smile!
There’s undoubtedly a prescription for success at Chestnut Ridge Dental. The team enjoys healthy doctor-patient bonds with both long-time patients (and their children and grandchildren) as well as patients who are new to the practice.
“It’s important to build great relationships with our patients while incorporating the newest technologies to improve their care,” says Dr. Mufson. “Everyone on our incredible team feels the same way.”
