“I practice with one goal in mind: to make kids feel comfortable here,”
says seven-time New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist Dr. Mary Jo McGuire.
With her calm, gentle, trust-building manner, this mother of five is equal
parts dental specialist and empathetic parent. She knows that kids, even
when they’re upset or nervous, respond best to a positive approach.
“My staff and I treat each child with kindness and compassion,” says
Dr. McGuire. And with appealing perks like video games, prizes and
overhead TVs, kids quickly discover that visiting the dentist is lots of fun.
“The innocent, honest things kids say make us laugh. We feel lucky to
spend time with them,” she says.
Dr. McGuire began her career as a dental hygienist and returned to
college to study pediatric dentistry. She graduated from the University of
Florida College of Dentistry and the University of Texas Health Science
Center. Dr. McGuire, who is celebrating over 12 years of solo practice,
stresses a prevention-oriented approach that encourages healthy eating
habits to maintain optimum oral health. “I lay a solid dental foundation
so children become really good adult patients with beautiful, problem-free teeth,” she says. “It’s gratifying to make a difference in their lives.”
