“I listen to my patients’ wants and needs and provide them with
a complete understanding of what dentistry has to offer so they
can make educated treatment choices,” says Dr. Scott Ruvo. “It’s
important for me to get to know my patients, not just their teeth. I
really enjoy establishing relationships with them and their families.”
In 1995, Dr. Ruvo took over a practice his father had begun 26 years
earlier. Since then, generations of families have visited him and his
top-notch staff for comprehensive dental care in a relaxed, comfortable environment.
Passionate about his profession, Dr. Ruvo takes great pride in his
ability to improve people’s lives by helping them reach their smile
goals. At his updated office, where he is joined by associate
Dr. Margarita Vergara, he offers cosmetic and restorative dentistry,
placing an emphasis on health, function and aesthetics, while pursuing long-lasting results. “Whether I’m making a simple filling look
like a real tooth or performing a full mouth restoration, I love doing
it all,” he says. An Invisalign® provider, he also utilizes a dental laser
for gum recontouring.
Dr. Ruvo is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago
College of Dentistry and participates in continuing education seminars at the prestigious Pankey Institute.

practice toward accomplishing one primary goal—creating beautiful,
long-lasting, healthy smiles.
Dr. Sacks earned his dental degree with honors from UMDNJ and
was then accepted into a prestigious three-year, hospital-based
residency program at Montefiore Medical Center, where he served as
the hospital’s chief orthodontic resident during his tenure. Now he
is honored to return to Montefiore annually to share his expertise as
an examiner of resident cases.
Upon stepping into Sacks Orthodontics, patients are greeted with
a warm welcome to immediately put them at ease. “Patients and
parents alike appreciate our attention to detail and all the individual
time they receive here,” says Dr. Sacks. This fun and friendly atmosphere is complemented by his use of the latest treatment options
and the most advanced all-digital technology and equipment.
“Orthodontic technology has come so far,” he says. “We’re able to

discomfort, all while utilizing unobtrusive, highly aesthetic alterna-
