“We are truly a family practice in every sense of the word.
Not only do my father and I work together, but we have a dedicated staff that has been with us for many years,” says Dr. Rachel
Hoffmann. “Our closeness extends to patients and their parents,
whom we enjoy getting to know on a personal level and who recognize our genuine desire to care for families as if they were our own.
These board-certified pediatric dentists make patients feel at
home from the moment they enter the bright, welcoming office.
Offering quality, compassionate care to infants, children, teens and
those with special needs, the doctors understand that some may
be apprehensive about dental treatment, and they take as much
time as needed to ease any fears. “Our patients have such a positive experience, parents tell me regularly their children can’t wait to
come back,” says Dr. Rachel Hoffmann. The practice also includes
orthodontist Dr. Cary Leizer.

Knowing full well that young patients require unique attention,
Drs. Linda Insano and Elisa Velazquez offer an enjoyable dental
experience with an emphasis on prevention. Named New Jersey
Monthly Top Dentists multiple times, both doctors pride themselves
