The Department of Dentistry provides inpatient and outpatient dental services for adults and children. In addition to managing urgencies and emergencies, dentists provide comprehensive oral health care including the full spectrum of diagnostic, preventive and treatment services. General dentistry and dental specialty services including prosthodontics, periodontics, and endodontics are based at the Family Health Center at 11 Getty Avenue in Paterson. Outpatient special care for medically complex patients and for mentally and physically challenged children is also available at this site. Hygiene services including education, prevention and treatment are provided at the FHC for the special care and general patient population.
The operating room at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center is specially equipped for the full scope of general dentistry including: imaging, restorative procedures, preventive care, endodontic and periodontal treatment as well as extraction of teeth. Patients unable to receive care in the outpatient environment may be candidates for comprehensive dental treatment under general anesthesia in the operating room.
