says four-time New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist Dr. Mary Jo McGuire.
With a calm, gentle, trust-building approach to care, Dr. McGuire, a
mother of five, is equal parts dental specialist and empathetic parent. When it comes to children, she knows what works.
“My staff and I treat each child with empathy and compassion,”
says Dr. McGuire. And with appealing perks like video games, prizes
and overhead TVs, kids quickly discover that visiting the office is a
