At Central Jersey Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, Drs. Michelle Backhaus and Christopher Overcash provide exceptional care in a family-based, child-centered, modern practice. The practice’s dual specialty allows for the establishment of a “dental home” at an early age as well an easy transition into orthodontic care.

Their practice offers preventative and restorative care, comprehensive orthodontics, as well as sedation and hospital dentistry with the help of cutting-edge technology including the use of digital radiographs and lasers.

Dr. Backhaus earned her DMD degree from the University of Pennsylvania and her certificate in pediatric dentistry from NYU. Dr. Backhaus is board certified and maintains hospital privileges at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.

“I love what I do,” says the mother of one. “Every day is a different adventure.”

Dr. Overcash earned his dental degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his certificate in orthodontics from Columbia University.


 "Dr. Backhaus was extremely patient with my son who recently had two cavities filled, a tooth extracted, his teeth cleaned, and sealants placed on his molars. She explained the entire procedure to me and provided me with different options, like sedation. My son did very well and is comfortable visiting Dr. Backhaus again in a couple of weeks when he needs to have a spacer placed. I would recommend Dr. Backhaus to all of our friends!" -Melissa, Milltown

 "Dr. Overcash is a professional, knowledgeable, personable and reassuring orthodontist. He's very approachable and takes time to answer any concerns. He has a wonderful way of making my son comfortable. We are extremely pleased with the service he provides." -D, East Brunswick

 "He's very caring and understanding. He takes the time to answer all questions and explains everything. My daughter loves to see Dr. Overcash for her monthly visits for her braces. The staff is awesome too, they're always willing to help and answer any questions. Central Jersey Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics in East Brunswick is the best. A+" -Michele, Woodbridge
