Drs. Irvin B. Sherman, Jocelyn Jeffries-Bruno, Britni Kearns and Jason Tesoriero provide exceptional and affordable pediatric dental and orthodontic care to infants, children, teens and patients with special needs.

“Our goal is always to make kids feel comfortable and safe, and provide them with a dental home,” Dr. Sherman says.

Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, the dentists blend personalized care and cutting-edge technology with continuing education to offer a unique dental experience that’s interactive and fun for kids. Their patients never have to fear going to the dentist—laser dentistry, digital scanners and digital X-rays ensure pain-free appointments, while video games and televisions keep kids relaxed and entertained in the waiting area and treatment rooms.

“We all have children of our own, so we know how scary it can be for kids to go to the dentist…that’s why we make every dental visit as easy and comfortable as possible for our patients,” Dr. Jeffries-Bruno says.


"Dr. Sherman always has a smile. He's friendly and funny and strives for perfection for braces. He truly seems to LOVE his profession and really cares about his patients. He treats us like family. My 18 & 20 year old kids will still only go to him for dental!" -Fran, East Brunswick

"Besides his expertise, Dr. Sherman is friendly & reassuring to my child making her experience a pleasant one." -Brocha, Lakewood

"Dr. Sherman and his entire team are exceptional for their honesty, patience, promptness and happy, calm office atmosphere." -Sara, Lakewood

"Dr. Sherman is the only dentist my daughters have LOVED to visit. It was truly a blessing to find Dr. Sherman and his amazing staff. My girls will be seeing Dr. Sherman until he forces them to leave! Simply an amazing doctor." -Lisa, Toms River

"Dr. Jocelyn has been special from day one. My son is medically complex. We had been to several dentists that didn’t want to treat him. She decided to call his specialist and hear from her what precautions needed to take place. She has been very helpful and has even given me her phone number in case I ever needed to get in touch with her or had a question. She is great with the kids – she's always upbeat and smiling. I’m so glad we met her." -Kristine, Toms River 

"Dr. Jocelyn always takes the time to explain clearly any concerns with my children and has taken the time to call me personally when I've had questions. During our visits she makes my three girls feel comfortable and stress-free." -Courtney, Avon-by-the Sea

"Dr. Jocelyn is excellent with children! She has the patience of a saint and makes the difficult task of taking a 2 year old to the dentist easy! And to top it off she's a great dentist!" -Carrie, Jackson

"Dr. Kearns is professional and very nice with the kids." -Mai, Long Branch 

"Dr. Jason was amazing with my daughter. He explained everything that needed to be done during the procedure and made sure that she was completely comfortable the entire time. She was super excited that Dr. Jason painted Moana on her tooth!" -Deirdre, Barnegat
