Clifton Dental Associates has a long history of tradition of quality care in northern New Jersey. Historically, the practice began in the 1940s when Dr. Edward B. Kayne (father of Dr. Matthew S. Kayne) began practicing dentistry in a Victorian home on Lexington Avenue in Passaic. Within a short period of time, he joined forces with Dr. Robert A. Sussman and the practice moved from Passaic to Clifton in 1968.
After more than 40 years of developing a family-oriented, quality dental practice, the elder Dr. Kayne and Dr. Sussman left the practice and turned over their treasured patients to Dr. Matthew S. Kayne and his partner, Dr. Steven J. Tuckman. The latter pair had completed their dental education together at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.
Clifton Dental Associates has a warm and caring tradition of family dentistry. Many of the patients have relatives who started with the practice in the 1940s or beyond, and continue to populate the practice today. We are proud to take care of multiple generations of the same families.
Over the years, Drs. Kayne and Tuckman have fully modernized the practice while continuing to provide individual quality care to their valued patients. They are also consistently improving techniques and materials while staying abreast of modern advances in dentistry by taking countless continuing education courses. They both thoroughly enjoy cosmetic dentistry and implant reconstruction, as well as crown and bridge work and all phases of restorative dentistry.
A final word about the level of care at Clifton Dental Associates: Both Dr. Kayne and Dr. Tuckman have been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years. They attended a prestigious dental school and further bolster their knowledge with countless hours of continuing education each year. They are highly experienced, quality-oriented dentists.
One of the many things that sets Clifton Dental Associates aside as being the best dental practice you will ever visit is the level of experience of everyone at our practice. You will receive care directly from one of these two highly skilled and trained dentists. There are no associates or lesser-trained dentists in our practice.
In addition, our hygienists, Linda, Janet, and Vasilika, and our registered dental assistants, Zelda and Cookie, have been in practice for more than 20 years. They all have abundant knowledge as well as a genuine concern for our patients’ comfort and quality of care.
Finally, at the front desk, Lorraine, Lara, and Karen will do everything and anything to complete your experience in a friendly and personal environment. In a day and age when so much has become impersonalized, Clifton Dental Associates has truly gone in the other direction! Every patient is important to us and each visit will show you that.
