About us

Serving the North Jersey Bergen/Passaic Counties for over 60 years.

Dr. Peter M. Perera very proudly continues the practices’ long standing tradition of high quality dentistry at a personal level that has enabled him to treat multiple Third Generation patients. The practice was established in 1961 by Dr. Anthony Antonelli. In 1981, Dr. Gregory VanVliet joined the practice as the office moved to its current location at Mountainside Center, 33 Sicomac Road, North Haledon, NJ; conveniently located on the Wyckoff – Franklin Lakes border. In 1995, Dr. Perera joined the practice as it expanded from four to the current six modern treatment rooms. Now, most recently, Dr. Michael Russo has joined the practice. Dr. Russo brings years of experience and a commitment to continuing education and training excellence. His presence will be a valuable and welcome addition to the practice.

As a family practice, we love to get to know our patients to provide them the best treatment possible. Our Doctors take pride in providing honest, gentle, and caring dentistry. We have been privileged to take care of many multi-generational families. Our dental services are focused on helping you and your family have healthy and beautiful smiles with the help of our devoted team of hygienists, assistants, and front desk personnel.

We invite you to come to our office and benefit from a warm and caring dental practice. Please call our office to schedule an appointment.
