Clifton Endodontics is trusted by referring dentists, especially for
complex root canal and surgical endodontic procedures. “We have
earned a reputation for integrity, fairness and the highest level of
care,” Dr. Leslie Elfenbein says. He and partners Dr. Ronald Deblinger
and Dr. Shalini Tewary use low radiation 3-D imaging and digital
X-rays for accurate diagnosis and treatment. They communicate
clearly to help patients make good treatment decisions and avoid
unnecessary procedures. “We care for our patients like family, with
understanding and gentle kindness,” says Dr. Deblinger, the practice’s founder. The group which includes Dr. Joon Park, offers the
opportunity for multiple expert opinions in one office.
Dr. Tewary, who pursued endodontics training at UMDNJ, says,
“Having practiced first as a general dentist, I can offer a comprehensive perspective of our patients’ needs.” She recently became a
diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. Drs. Elfenbein and
Deblinger both completed their specialty training at the University
of Pennsylvania. Dr. Deblinger is chairman of Delta Dental of New
Jersey, while Dr. Elfenbein is director of endodontics at St. Joseph’s
Regional Medical Center in Paterson. “Our growing practice is proof
that people still prefer to retain their natural teeth when possible,”
says Dr. Tewary.
