Specialty: Pediatric Dentistry
State Street Smiles is the practice of husband and wife team Drs. Edward and Dina Jackson. Exceptional oral health care combined with weekend and evening accessibility and flexible payment options have made this a standout practice in the community.
“We strive to create an extraordinary dental experience for patients big and small, and we’re proud to continue expanding our services to meet the needs of all of our patients in one location,” says Dr. Dina.
Parents of three, the Jacksons focus on creating a safe, fun and family-friendly dental experience, which includes iPads and televisions in each treatment room.
“Not only do we work hard to further our knowledge in the dental field, but we always look for opportunities to have some fun,” Dr. Eddie says. State Street Smiles Toddler Time for children 24 months and younger serves to educate parents on oral health problems. Doctors partner with lactation consultants to support mothers having difficulty nursing due to tongue and lip ties.
State Street Smiles uses cutting-edge technology, such as Solea® laser dentistry, to make dental visits as comfortable as possible. Laser dentistry is one of the latest advancements in dental technology, treating a wide range of dental and cosmetic problems from cavities to gum disease. It can even be used to perform a frenectomy to help with children’s nursing, speech or alignment issues. The biggest benefit of laser dentistry is that it can reduce pain and virtually eliminate the need for a local anesthetic.
Both Dr. Dina and Dr. Eddie earned their DMDs from UMDNJ. A diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Eddie is on staff at Hackensack University Medical Center and has served as pediatric section chief in the department of dentistry.
405 Main St., Hackensack
