Nominated in New Jersey’s Favorite Kids’ Docs for 10 consecutive years, Dr. Michael Lateiner treats children and teens in a jungle-themed office with all the bells and whistles (kid-friendly TV shows, an Xbox and touch-screen games) that help patients feel relaxed and at home. His offices offer state-of-the-art technology including digital impressions and X-rays to make visits comfortable and painless.

Known as “Dr. Mike,” Dr. Lateiner works alongside pediatric dentists Drs. Bernadette Lapena and Jennie Lee and orthodontists Drs. Bernard Barrish, Kevin Lehnes and Blair Sittman. The practice also recently welcomed pediatric dentist Dr. Veronica Choi.

“We’re happiest when a once-fearful patient leaves with a smile,” says Dr. Lateiner, a father of two. “We pride ourselves on offering compassionate care…and making sure that kids always come first.”

Dr. Lateiner graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University and received his DMD from UMDNJ, where he earned his specialty in pediatric dentistry and MS in dentistry.

"Dr. Michael Lateiner is great with kids. My son has been going to him since he opened his practice. My son was a rough patient in the begining and his staff was excellent with him. Now my son is 9 years old and he loves going there." -Mandy, Montague

"Dr. Mike is the best pediatric dentist. My kids actually love going for their appointments! As a mom it is a relief to not have to struggle to get them to go." -Laurie, Lake Hopatcong

"Dr. Mike is the best doctor in the world! Excellent care, professionalism, honesty and kindness!" -Olena, Pine Brook

"Dr. Lateiner is very knowledgeable and great with kids. He eases both parents and kids before and during the visit and makes a dentist visit less overwhelming for my son." -Eliana, East Hanover
