Grateful to again be selected by their peers as New Jersey Monthly Top Dentists, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Drs. Gerard Begley and Richard Riva know their success is a team effort. With a growing number of
referring dentists who trust in their expertise, and a staff second to none, these doctors and their colleagues strive
for excellence every day.
Their combined experience offers patients an unsurpassed level of care. Whether performing routine extractions
or complex jaw surgery, every patient receives the same meticulous work ethic and high level of personal attention.
Stating it simply, practice founder Dr. Riva says, “We are here to serve.”
Dr. Riva is a graduate of NYU and completed his residency at UMDNJ. He served as chief of oral and maxillofacial
surgery at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital in Staten Island and is a past president of the New Jersey Society of
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. He currently serves on the New Jersey State Board of Dentistry.
Dr. Begley is a graduate of University of Pennsylvania and completed his residency at Temple University Health
Sciences Center, where he remains on staff. Serving as chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery at Morristown Medical
Center, he cares for patients with congenital, acquired and developmental deformities, including cleft palate and traumatic injuries. He says, “It’s a privilege to be able to make such a positive difference in the lives of our patients.”
