About Bergenfield Dental

We want you to be as comfortable as possible during treatment. Our caring staff and state-of-the-art equipment will make your visit a relaxing and pleasant experience.
Bergenfield Dental Associates is focused on preventive treatment to avoid or lessen potential gum disease. Our highly trained, registered Dental Hygienists can help properly detect and treat gum disease. Our comprehensive exams can help prevent any issues or lead to early diagnosis; allowing you keep a healthy, bright smile.
State-of-the-Art Dental Care
In addition to the latest in modern materials and instrumentation, Bergenfield Dental Associates is one of the few dental offices to offer you the high-tech service of the Intraoral Video Imaging Technology, which uses a fiber optic camera to take pictures of your mouth and gums, magnify the images, and project them on a color computer monitor.
The magnified images can show many conditions that are difficult to see by eye alone. The images are printed out like a photograph. This technology allows us to make a more complete diagnosis and you to better understand conditions in your mouth and to see the improvements Dr. Shahid is making.
Digital X-rays, the latest in advanced X-ray technology, using a sensor instead of a film, captures the image of the tooth on a computer screen in seconds. Digital X-rays provide up to a 90 percent decrease in radiation from our already highly reduced X-ray machines, and are used to provide highly accurate diagnoses.
In addition to the smile enhancements available to you, Dr. Shahid also makes sure you're comfortable with advanced pain relief technologies such as topical anesthesia and laughing gas.
If you're afraid of the dentist or don't want to be awake during treatment, a board certified anesthesiologist can safely provide sleep anesthesia right in our office. Imagine waking up finished and delighted.
At Bergenfield Dental Associates, we are very concerned about your safety. That's why we strive to achieve infection control over and above mandatory guidelines, through:
- Steam autoclaving/sterilization
- OSHA approved disinfectants
- Disposable instruments
- Spore testing
All instruments, including drills and handpieces, are Autoclaved and sterilized after each use for your safety.
