Edward Jackson, DMD, FAAPD
• Pediatric Dentistry
Board-certified pediatric dentist Dr. Edward Jackson is dedicated to delivering extraordinary dental treatment in a comfortable, relaxed setting.
A graduate of UMDNJ, Dr. Jackson completed his pediatric training at
the University of Illinois at Chicago. In his new, state-of-the-art facility, he offers digital radiography and laser dentistry, as well as in-office
sedation for patients with dental phobias or special needs. Hospital-based
dentistry is also available. iPads in the waiting room, TVs in the treatment
rooms and tons of prizes make treatment more fun for everyone. “When a
kid walks in anxious, and gives me a high five and a smile on the way out,
that’s a great feeling,” says Dr. Jackson.
He works with his wife, Dr. Dina Jackson, and father-in-law,
Dr. M. Stamler, both general dentists, to help patients understand what
to expect from their dental treatment, start to finish. In addition to preventative and corrective dental care, Dr. Jackson also teams with lactation
consultants and speech therapists to resolve tongue-tie issues in infants
and children. “I love being able to treat patients from days after birth
through adolescence and beyond,” he says.
In addition to accepting most major dental insurance, State Street
Smiles has a monthly membership plan for patients without dental
