About NJ Smiles Dental

Awesome experience. After years of ignoring dental issues because of fear and paranoia, I finally came to NJ Smiles. Dr Patel is one of a kind. Immediately felt welcomed and cared for by him and his staff. I have had nothing but a great experience so far every time I’m in the office. Highly recommend!

The Dental Implant Experts

AAID credentialed dental implant expert Dr. Patel is passionate about helping you live your life the way you want to. You can count on him to give you the smile you deserve, the ability to eat what you want and teeth that feel and act like your natural ones.


We treat our patients and each other with respect and communicate openly. Patients are able to make their own choices for their dentistry based on what they themselves can see with the intraoral camera and digital x-rays.



We encourage the best ideas to surface and desire and encourage everyone's input. We do what we say and we say what we do – we can be counted on. When there is a problem we actively look for solutions.


We treat each other and our patients as we wish to be treated realizing that everyone is fighting a battle that we can't always see. We don't make judgments about people when we don't have a full or complete understanding of situations. Therefore, we follow the Golden Rule here with each other and with our patients. This is a place of solace from the world and we treat our patients as if they were honored guests in our home.



We aspire to flawless dentistry and we will not take shortcuts on quality. We seek and promote the best talent and buy the best materials and equipment. We are all committed and excited about learning and implementing new techniques. Patients can rest assured therefore, that they will be getting the very best dentistry available.

People First

We respect our patients above all else and never forget that they come to us by choice. We ALL share a personal responsibility to maintain our patients' loyalty and trust. We listen and respond to our patients and seek to exceed their expectations. We work with people not teeth which means we try to help people improve themselves within their desire, lifestyle, budget and time restraints. We work with our patients and each other in a helpful, not begrudging manner.
