Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom treat children the same way they do their adult patients—with respect, kindness and the utmost concern for safety. The group practices a “Tell, Show, Do” policy to help kids get involved in the treatment process and reduce anxiety.

All Specialties in One Practice

“We want kids to be a participant in their own oral health care,” Dr. Gary says. The general and cosmetic dental practice offers all specialties under one roof, so young patients are already familiar with the team and environment should they require a specialist.

With more than 30 years of experience, the Silverstrom Group prides itself on spending time educating patients to prevent future dental issues. “We enhance kids’ self-esteem and confidence by empowering and educating them to be responsible for their own oral health,“ Dr. Gary says.

Making Dental Visits Fun

Children enjoy having access to streaming music and video at each chair, earning toys from the Treasure Chest, and getting gift cards for contests. “We want our patients to have a great experience, and take a little piece of it home with them,” he says. “Kids leave the office feeling better about themselves—they look forward to coming here because it’s fun, and because we treat them as part of our extended family.”

Building Relationships 

The practice is passionate about giving to the community—they grant scholarships to local schools and donate their time and resources to charitable organizations.

“The relationships we build with families as they grow through our practice is the most rewarding part of what we do,” Dr. Gary says.“The biggest testament to the level of care we provide is when our patients, who started visiting us as kids, now bring their own children to us.”

 "I've been a patient of the Silverstrom Group for 20 years. I was referred to them by a very close friend, and I'm so happy to be able to call Dr. David my dentist. Dr. David makes it clear to me every time I visit that he loves what he does! My daughter is also under his wonderful care. I highly recommend Dr. Silverstrom for his expertise, compassion, and of course, skill. My daughter loves going to his office." -Robert, Lincoln Park

" Going to their office is always a wonderful experience for my daughter. She loves to go to the dentist because she has so much fun. They're experts and make me feel comfortable because I know she is in the right hands." -Lisa, Lincoln Park

" I feel Dr. Gary Silverstrom is exceptional due to his patience and how he makes the child comfortable. By the end of the visit, the child doesn't want to leave!!! -Cathy, Pine Brook

 “Dr. David is the best! My kids just love going to the dentist because he makes their experience so fun.” - Paula, Pompton Plains

 “My daughter hates having her teeth brushed at home and I was nervous how she would act at the dentist. She was 18 months old when I brought her to The Silverstrom Group for her first cleaning. I was shocked at how well things went. She was definitely nervous but the hygienist Debbie and Dr. Gary knew how to keep my daughter calm, make her laugh about sugar bugs in her mouth, and gently brush her teeth. She didn't even cry!” -Nubia, South Orange
