Dr. Friedman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Friedman "Dr. Friedman graduated from Middletown High School in 1976 and earned a Bachelors degree from Rutgers College four years later. In 1984, he graduated from the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry in the top 15% of his class. He moved back to Monmouth County to attend the General Practice Residency Program at Monmouth Medical Center. Soon after starting his own practice, he performed over 500 hours of post-graduate continuing education to obtain his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) in 1990. In 2010 he completed additional 1,000 hours to earn his mastership, which less than 2% of dentists have achieved. He is currently an attending doctor on staff and part-time clinical instructor at the Monmouth Medical Center where he teaches advanced dental techniques and sedation to recently dentist graduates. Dr Friedman is one of only a few general dentists in New Jersey to be certified to perform IV sedation in his office. This gives patients the opportunity to have all phases of dental care performed in a single location while comfortably and safely sedated. He is a member of the New Jersey Dental Association, New Jersey Dental Society of Anesthesia, Monmouth-Ocean County Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, New Jersey Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Society of Anesthesia and is a Fellow in the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. Dr. Friedman keeps his finger on the pulse of dental technology by regularly taking dental continuing education courses (300% more than the NJ State Board of Dentistry annually requires of active dentists) and stays current with dental literature. He was the first to bring Dentistry From The Heart to New Jersey in 2006 and has hosted the charity event every year since. When he is not helping his patients, he can be found working on his classic cars, a 1972 MG-B and 1960 MG-A or doing home repairs. He is active in scuba diving, skiing, boating, fishing and tennis. His wife Adrienne teaches at Brookdale Community College and they have three adult children, Gillian, Jared and Hannah."

After NOT going to the Dentist for over 2 decades as a result of a bad childhood experience, I finally decided to go to Dr. Friedman. He was incredibly kind and patient and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. I have now had 4 wisdom teeth removed, 3 crowns done (same day I might add!)...more
