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.
Safe and Fun Dentistry
Parents of three, the Jacksons focus on creating a safe, fun and family-friendly dental experience for patients of all ages, which includes iPads and televisions in each treatment room. The practice continues to implement its state-of-the-art sterilization protocols along with COVID-19 safety measures including medical grade air purifiers, taking temperatures and pulse ox readings and remote check-in. All rooms are fogged between patients. “We strive to create an extraordinary dental experience for patients big and small,” says Dr. Dina, who earned her DMD from UMDNJ.
State-of-the-Art Laser Technology
State Street Smiles uses cutting-edge technology, such as Solea® laser dentistry, to make dental visits as comfortable as possible. One of the latest advancements in dental technology, laser dentistry treats a range of dental and cosmetic issues from cavities and gum disease to frenectomies to help with children’s nursing, speech or alignment issues. It can reduce pain and virtually eliminate the need for a local anesthetic.
State Street Smiles Toddler Time for children 24 months and younger serves to educate parents on oral health problems, while the doctors partner with lactation consultants to support mothers having difficulty nursing due to tongue and lip ties.
“We work hard to further our knowledge in the dental field, but we also look for opportunities to have fun,” says Dr. Eddie, who earned his DMD from UMDNJ. A diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, he is on staff at Hackensack University Medical Center and has served as pediatric section chief in the department of dentistry.
