• General Dentistry
“We practice a different kind of dentistry here,” says Dr. Med Dawoud.
“My patients come to me for any dental need, even extractions and
implants. They appreciate the convenience of a practice where we offer
all procedures under one roof.” But eliminating the necessity for any such
treatment comes first. Dr. Dawoud begins with education and prevention
and has made it his mission to enlighten patients on how to take greater
control over their own oral health.
From checkups to full mouth reconstructions, this first-time New
Jersey Monthly Top Dentist provides gentle and effective care in a laid-back atmosphere. A UMDNJ graduate and fellow of the International
Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Dawoud stays ahead in his field
by participating in professional study groups and continuing education seminars. He is certified in the new pinhole gum surgery technique
(PST), a rarity among general dentists. He is also an Invisalign® provider.
Dr. Dawoud practices alongside Dr. Paula Gencarelli and an experienced,
knowledgeable support team.
Patients appreciate Dr. Dawoud’s gentleness, thoroughness and ability
to explain dental conditions well. “When patients understand why I am
recommending treatment, we can work together to accomplish their
dental goals,” he says.

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 Drs. Joseph Stern and Lisa Cohen, offers
the opportunity for multiple expert opinions within one of 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
