About Ridgewood Dental Associates

We have a fantastic team of caring professionals supporting our front and back office.

All the members of our team are dedicated to making your experience the best it can possibly be.

Prosthodontics is the dental specialty for the restoration and replacement of teeth. After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate education program. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA.

Rigorous training and experience provide prosthodontists with the special understanding of the dynamics of the smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacements.

Serving as the "architect" of a dental treatment plan, prosthodontists collaborate with general dentists, specialists and other health professionals to develop solutions to your dental concerns.

Welcome to Ridgewood Dental Associates

Dr. Joung, Dr. Samani, and the entire team at Ridgewood Dental Associates strive to bring excellence, innovation, and compassion to even the most challenging dental problems. With prosthodontists, a periodontist, and advanced training in dental specialties, our team is able to collaborate, share ideas, and personalize treatment for each patient. For us, it's not just about providing dental care — it's about providing uncompromising care and making people happy about their smiles.

Dr. Samani is a terrific dentist. He’s knowledgeable, kind, and a perfectionist. He takes the time to talk to you, explains what needs to be done and answers all your questions. He makes you feel very comfortable. I have been his patient for many years, he does excellent work! The staff is professional and friendly, which starts right at the front desk! Aleyda, always with a smile, is very helpful. Lisa, one of the dental hygienists, has been cleaning my teeth for years, she has me flossing everyday now (I dare not skip a day

From the minute I walked through the door I felt that I was finally in the right place to have the years of neglecting my teeth attended to. I was introduced to the entire staff including both working partners. I felt like royalty and a member of their family.
So far I have had two implants, 1 bridge and numerous cleanings. Each visit has been pleasant and everything explained to me is what was actually performed - no surprises. I would recommend RDA to anyone seeking the best in dentistry .
