Smile Central Dental, Jewish Dentist in Passaic, New Jersey
The founder of Smile Central Dental, Dr. Grunstein — or Dr. G as he is affectionately called by his patients — was formally trained at Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and graduated in 2001. Upon graduation, Dr. Grunstein began his career working in Paterson at a busy inner-city dental clinic where he recognized an acute need for greater access to affordable dental services in the community.
Dr. Grunstein spends much of his time educating the community and policymakers on the importance of dental care for all children. He has been recognized with many prestigious awards for his innovative approach to dentistry by pioneering the concept of the Cavity Fighter truck, a mobile dental operatory. Dr. Grunstein is the recipient of the Richard Tannis Youth Service Award for his work in promoting children’s dental health in New Jersey.
In addition, he has served on the Mayoral Task Force Committee to promote further wellness in Paterson. He has also been recognized by Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, New Jersey Horizon Healthcare, Yeshiva University, and the State of New Jersey General Assembly for his work. He has been lauded in many publications, including The New York Times, Bergen Record, and the Star-Ledger for his commitment to dental health outreach.
Dr. Grunstein works tirelessly to raise awareness of access to dental healthcare for children and the importance of preventive dental health. When he is not working on children’s dental health, Dr. Grunstein is at home, playing with his own three children and his two Labradoodles Snickers and Mack. He also enjoys camping and working on his Jeep.
