“I was recommended to Dr. Korwin’s office and I will never go to another dentist again. I had bad experiences with other dentist offices and avoided a dentist for several years. Dr. Korwin is extremely friendly, nice, professional, and honest. He cares about his patients and doesn’t rush them in and out. He takes the time to get to know his patients and gives honest and professional advice/opinions. He does not recommend unnecessary work. The rest of the staff is equally as great. The receptionist behind the front counter, Dr. Korwin’s assistant, and the dental hygienist were incredibly nice, friendly, and professional. They also took the time to get to know me and were legitimately interested. They answered all my question honestly and took the time to explain what they were doing as they did it. Simply put: you’re wasting your time and money if you see any other dentist. — Adam M., Brick, NJ”
Sedation dentistry with Dr. Korwin overcame ten years of dental anxiety
I have had a dental phobia for most of my life. Bad experiences as a child and young adult had contributed to my fear of dentists. The sounds of the drill, the smells of the office all contributed to the big fear. I would sit in the dental chair and grip the arms, just waiting for the pain. The heart palpitations and anxiety I experienced were frightening.
The longer I stayed away from the dentist, the more intense my fear became. Conversations about dentists would set me off into tears. Of course, staying away from the dentist for approximately 10 years caused many problems. I was losing pieces of my back teeth (molars). I chewed my food very carefully and made sure I didn’t chew in the area where the tooth was deteriorating. I then realized that, if I was losing my back teeth, it was going to happen to my front teeth as well if I didn’t take action. Two years in a row, I made emergency visits to an oral surgeon for extractions. Both years, they occurred at Christmas time.
I was so disappointed in myself. Here I am, an educated person with dental insurance, and I couldn’t conquer this phobia. I had so many conversations with my husband Jim about going to his dentist, but I always backed out. He kept saying, just go in for a consultation, just talk to him. Well, after that last Christmas and emergency extraction, I finally made an appointment to see my husband’s dentist, Dr. Robert Korwin, for a consultation.
As a medical librarian, I specialize in researching medical literature. I researched Dr. Korwin and found him to be a dentist who has published and lectured and frequently attends continuing education classes for advanced dentistry. He has a state-of-the art dental practice. He has even patented his inventions.
Dr. Korwin and his staff took every measure to make my consultation comfortable. He sat me down in a private room just to talk. He ensured me that he would only do what I wanted, and if I were ever uncomfortable with any procedures or felt the slightest twinge of pain, he would take measures to ease them. He wanted to know what my goals were; what I wanted the most was a healthy mouth. I was fearful, with my family history of heart disease and diabetes, that I would be in real trouble if I didn’t take care of my teeth.
I became a patient of Dr. Korwin’s in 2005 and have had many procedures (fillings, extractions) over the years. I’ve never had to grip the arms of the dental chair. If I felt the slightest discomfort, he took measures to ease it. Sedation dentistry is a blessing, as I was able to conquer my fear and get a lot of work done without discomfort.
The staff was always compassionate and caring and never made me feel foolish about my phobia. Even having my teeth cleaned was not painful, because they would use numbing gel for my sensitive teeth.
I trust Dr. Korwin and his staff to provide the best dental care for me. I had two dental implants and braces. Me, having braces! Who would have thought? My braces were just recently removed, and I had my teeth whitened. I not only have a healthy mouth, but now I have a beautiful smile! This is a goal I never would have thought I could achieve three years ago. I’ve received so many compliments about my smile, and that I found the courage to get all this dental work done and conquer my phobia. I have discovered that there are so many people that fear dentists and find my story encouraging.
My son is getting married in September, and now I’m not afraid to smile for the photographers. Dr. Korwin advertises his practice as advanced dentistry with a gentle touch, which is exactly what I was looking for!
“I highly recommend Dr. Korwin to anyone looking for an outstanding dental office. Dr Korwin is extremely knowledgeable, most professional, and sensitive to my concerns. He is the most talented and skilled dentist I have ever encountered and I have complete confidence in everything he does. He is gentle and meticulous, and I never had any discomfort from any of the procedures he has performed on me. He consistently provides the highest quality of professional advice and care. Dr. Korwin, his assistants, and the entire office staff are exceptional. Their skill, friendliness, and professional demeanor reflect the tone of the office. From the front desk, to the dental assistants, to the doctor, I experienced kindness and experienced care. I always feel like everyone knows me and genuinely cares about me. I am very grateful to have found Dr. Korwin
and I would highly recommend his practice to anyone looking for an outstanding dental office. Thank you for-the excellent dental work and the kindness you have extended to me.” – Virginia F., Monmouth Beach, NJ
A Licensed Clinical Psychologist Recommends Dr Korwin’s Calm, Confident, Gentle, Perfectionistic and Skilled Manner.
After growing up in an orphanage, in foster care and with a neglectful family, I had terrible dental problems and was essentially told by three different dentists that it was too late to improve my dental health and I would have life-long issues. I became phobic of dentists, not because of the pain but because of the bills!
My previous dentist would examine my mouth, give his assistant codes and then I would meet the billing person in the consultation room and she would give me a total, ask how I was going to pay and when I wanted to schedule treatment. I would then get the treatment completed, followed by x-rays and then a new bill for more treatment for problems that had developed in the interim. It certainly wasn’t my previous dentist’s fault that I had so many dental problems but I began to feel like he only cared about making money from my treatment, obtaining more referrals and furnishing his office in fancy accouterments to convey an air of prestige.
This fall, I had an important professional event coming up that was going to be filmed and I began to feel stress related to the appearance of my smile. I knew that my previous dentist was not going to truly care about my concerns and listen to what I wanted.
I contacted Dr. Korwin’s office only 1 ½ weeks before filming. They provided a free same day consultation with a follow-up appointment to discuss the pros and cons of different options to address both health and cosmetic concerns. Dr. Korwin and his staff literally spent hours educating me about my teeth and gums and providing recommendations to improve my dental health. I learned more from them in a few appointments than I had in 15+ years of going to the dentist. Never once did they make me feel like my teeth and gums were a lost cause.
The day before my event, Dr. Korwin installed temporary veneers that were painless and beautiful. When the permanent veneers and replacement crowns needed to be installed, the office again went out of their way to complete the procedure on a day and time that was convenient for me and once again, there was absolutely no pain after the procedure. Dr. Korwin is a calm, confident, gentle, perfectionistic and skilled clinician. Best of all, by following his recommendations, my gum health improved! I think it was the first time ever that a dentist told me that my gums looked healthier.
In closing, I highly recommend Dr. Korwin and his entire staff. They are all fantastic and a reflection of Dr. Korwin’s commitment to excellence. They have been consistently knowledgeable, kind, skilled and enthusiastic about helping me and getting to know me as an individual.

A time-challenged plastic surgeon recommends Dr. Korwin
Dr. Korwin has taken care of my teeth (and my wife’s) for the past six years. He has been my general dentist and also become my cosmetic dentist: I’m now doing Invisalign under his care. I started Invisalign in July 2007. I’ve always had crooked lower teeth to some degree and never really had the time to devote myself to a compliant treatment regimen that having braces would require. When Dr. Korwin told me about Invisalign and showed me, with photographs, the great result he anticipated for me, I decided to try it. Now, I’m six months into it and very glad that I did it. I’m noticing great results already, which I easily see when comparing my current photographs with those from three months ago, or with pre-treatment photos.
I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in a busy practice here in Monmouth County. Despite my rigorous schedule, my Invisalign treatment and follow-up care has been easy to handle. Dr. Korwin and his staff have always accommodated me when I needed to schedule an appointment at a specific time. Invisalign, in general, is easy even for a busy plastic surgeon. I’m glad I chose to go that route with my cosmetic treatment.
Dr. Korwin is the epitome of what every doctor should strive to be. He is a complete doctor. In other words, he treats the whole patient. He’s concerned with not only the patient’s dental hygiene, but also the patient’s nutrition, cardiovascular health, digestive system, other medical issues such as diabetes, etc. He has treated me with the utmost compassion and professionalism. In addition, Dr. Korwin emphasizes continuing medical education. Professionally, I can relate to the importance of attending local and national meetings on a regular basis to stay on the cutting edge of my specialty. Like me, Dr. Korwin is not afraid to say, I learned a new technique that will enhance my practice and provide better results for my patients. The way in which Dr. Korwin evolves with his profession and his scientific approach impresses me the most.
I feel truly at home when I’m at Dr. Korwin’s office. I, too, strive to maintain a very cordial, personable and professional staff and environment, which is what I’ve experienced in Dr. Korwin’s office.
Dr. Korwin’s unique mix of knowledge, technique, professionalism and personality make it easy for me to recommend his practice to others.

An anxious patient is pleasantly surprised.
I am a visitor from Florida and was having a problem with my teeth. I must confess I didn’t plan on having this dental work done now, but my situation became worse. Someone highly recommended Dr. Korwin. From the moment I walked into his office I felt the warmth and peacefulness, so comforting, so unique and different. His entire staff treated me with the highest regard and was truly there to take care of me. A great team! You could see the togetherness. I call them Dr. Korwin’s dental family. To be honest, before my procedure began I was nervous but his assistants made me very comfortable and at ease. When Dr. Korwin started working on my teeth I felt no pain. I said to myself, ‘ this doctor does it like he is leading a symphony and everything comes together on cue with the help of his talented assistants’. I was so pleased and happy for what he did for me.
I can only tell you that he is the greatest, and every patient he works on is so lucky that they have him as their doctor.
To sum it all up, he, his office, his staff did it for me. I know I made the right choice.
God really blessed me because I came to the right place at the right time.

Painless and Relaxed Root Canal!
I consulted with a doctor in January for a regular dental exam and cleaning. I informed the doctor that I was experiencing pain and had swelling to the left side of my gums, after further x-rays the doctor advised me that I would need two Root Canals. I scheduled shortly thereafter to have the Root Canal performed. The procedure was very painful! I could feel everything! I knew then that I needed to see another doctor. I knew that this procedure was not complete and that I also needed another Root Canal. I came home that day and told my boyfriend about the horrible experience that I had at the dentist office. He highly recommended his dentist, Dr. Korwin. Even though Dr. Korwin’s office was about an hour away from my home, I decided to consult with him.
During my consultation, Dr. Korwin performed x-rays and with the aid of what seemed to be a small camera, even showed me on a screen what was going on with my teeth. I scheduled that day for the Root Canal and I can recall hearing Dr. Korwin reassuring me that it would be painless. I was skeptical at first, but he did prove me wrong! He is amazing! I did not feel anything. I was so relaxed throughout the whole procedure. My experience with Dr. Korwin and his staff has been great; I would highly recommend him to anyone! He treated me in a professional manner and was in no hurry to get me out of the office!
Thank you Dr. Korwin and staff for making my dental experience a much better one!

Marty S-P: “Unbelievable. My daughter is in a wheel chair and the care they took of her was incredible, everything was phenomenal, and to this very day we’ve had no problems. They gave up lunches; they stayed late, incredible care that you don’t expect. I have been so pleased, they tell you everything, they talk to you, and as soon as you walk in the door the staff is phenomenal. They welcome you with open arms. It takes that whole scared feeling away. They are so state of the art, they show you everything…”
