The American Dental Association and the New Jersey Dental Association have recommended a voluntary 2 week shutdown of dental practices due to COVID19, effective March 17th-March 30th, 2020. As such, we have closed for routine and elective procedures but will be able to see emergencies.
In lieu of Holiday cards, a donation in honor of our patients has been made to the Wounded Warrior Project. We hope for the best for our vets, and appreciate the sacrifices made. On behalf of our patients, we wish them Happy Holidays!
We will be open the following Saturdays:
September 10th, 2016
January 14th, 2017
Due to the unfortunate circumstances for Dr. Rene Arace which led her to withdraw as President of the Essex County Dental Society, Dr. Richard C. Schonberg will act as President for the third consecutive year. His “reign” will end in 2017!
A donation has been made in the name of my patients to the Wounded Warrior Project. With so many wounded veterans in desperate need of services, I choose to donate to this worthy cause, and hope our veterans will benefit from a better Holiday Season.
On Wednesday night, October 7,2015, Dr. Schonberg was one of several people honored by the New Jersey Dental Association. Installed as the re-elected president of the Essex County, he was presented with a plaque by the current NJDA president, Essex County’s own Dr. Greg LaMorte. Also present was, Giorgio DiVincenzo, President-elect of the NJDA and the Executive Director, Art Meisel, Esq.
Stem cells hold promise to regenerate many different body tissues. Until recently, stem cells were difficult to procure. Several years ago it was discovered stem cells are present in many body tissues, particularly the teeth. Extracted teeth can have stem cells harvested and banked so that in the future, if needed, the cells are there for you. The ADA announced in the march 2, 2015 News that research at the University of Pittsburgh have been able to coax dental stem cells into corneal (eye) tissue, and could one day be used to repair corneal injuries. Presently, Store-A-Tooth offers the ability to save your stem cells from extracted teeth. Your future could depend up on it! For more information call us at 973-379-2730.
Given the declared State of Emergency by the governor, and of course, the difficulty of traveling in this snow, we have closed the office for today, Thursday, March 5, 2015. We plan on resuming operations on Friday, March 6th.
The office will be open as usual and remain so unless another major storm impacts the area. Fortunately, our area was not hit as hard as Long Island and above (my son in Boston said they got two feet of snow).
