If I could give Dr. Melinda and her entire staff more stars I certainly would give them unlimited stars! It's pleasant to go to a doctor's office and be seen on time and feeling like I'm Norm from Cheers, where everybody knows your name. <3. I had to go in for a bonding of a front tooth and Dr. Melinda is the Picasso of bonding!!! You can't tell the tooth was bonded. I always look forward to going to this office. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!!!

To start, the ENTIRE office is pleasant, friendly and caring. I'm literally 20 minutes post-visit and I'm in love with my new dentist and her team. They are so personable, detail-oriented and knowledgeable - I was blown away the entire time in the chair. I highly recommend Dr. Wagner, you can tell she loves what she does - glad I was referred here by a friend who is equally as happy!

Great environment, clean, efficient and friendly staff. Dr. Wagner is a very kind, smart and wonderful doctor. She really helped calm down my TMJ pain with Botox. I was very hesitant for years to try it but it’s really helped my pain. Dr. Wagner made me feel at ease and it was no big deal in the end. It didn’t even hurt or alter my face which is why I put it off for years. Very thankful I found her.

My daughter, over the last five years, suffered from jaw clicking, popping, migraines and jaw pain. She went to see her pediatrician, several neurologists in NJ and NYC, a neurologist at CHOPS, an oral surgeon in NYC, orthodontists, and multiple dentists. One oral surgeon in NYC wanted to do jaw surgery. She missed months of school over the years and went to many emergency rooms for pain management. During the last five years, she had several mouthpieces made, hundreds and hundreds of x-rays, Cat scans, MRI's, braces, and finally, on two occasions, had 20 shots of nerve block injected into her scalp at CHOPS. All the doctors, dentists and specialist would not stop her migraines. I made an appointment with Dr. Wagner, who examined my daughter and told her she had TMJ. She told her what to eat and made her a mouth piece. After all, the failed attempts over the last five years, we cannot believe it. Dr. Wagner stopped all the pain, all the popping and cracking. My daughter has not had a migraine since Dr. Wagner made her a mouthpiece and helped her diet. It took five years and a lot of perseverance, but we finally found the most incredible dentist in the world. Our whole family will be going to her dentist from now on. Her staff is accommodating and lovely too!
