“ We are committed to incorporating cutting edge implant technology to provide our patients with the highest quality of care ,” says Dr .

Joung , a prosthodontist and a board-certified periodontist , is one of only ahandful of dentists in the country to be trained in both specialties . Dr . Cho practices general dentistry . “ It ’ s comforting to our patients to have all of these services offered in the office ,” notes Dr . Joung , “ specifically , implant surgery and implant restoration performed by specialists in one office .”
Ridgewood Dental Associates prides itself on delivering uncompromising standards for the highest caliber of dentistry by utilizing cone beam CT 3D digital x-rays , digital intraoral scans , CAD / CAM software , a 3D printer and a CAD / CAM milling machine enabling the doctors to complete the entire implant process virtually on computers before ever touching the patient . The result of this in-house , high tech approach is unparalleled precision , outstanding quality and beautiful esthetics . Dr . Joung explains , “ I use the 3D printer to create surgical guides based on digital CAD / CAM pretreatment planning . This allows me to achieve accuracy in positioning and placement of dental implants .”
Drs . Samani , Joung and Cho ’ s commitment to continuing education has led them to renovate the office , providing Bergen County with a world-class dental implant education center , the Ridgewood Implant Institute ( RII ). The Institute is not only an educational facility for tri-state dentists who wish to learn about all phases of implant dentistry , but also a treatment facility for patients seeking dental implant care . “ The Institute allows us to provide the same exceptional quality of care to a broader network of patients , who might not have access to implant treatment by specialists , due to the reduced fees of the educational environment . Dr . Samani and myself provide all aspects of the implant treatment , whether a private patient or an Implant Institute patient ,” says Dr . Joung . The Ridgewood Implant Institute offers mini-residencies and All-on-4 © implant continuing education courses to dentists . Patients are currently being considered for upcoming online courses . “ We are preparing the next generation of dentists and setting a new standard for exceptional dental care ,” says Dr . Samani .
