River Edge Dental is building a worldwide reputation for the quality of its cosmetic, reconstructive, and neuromuscular dentistry. And as that reputation grows, we are becoming a dental destination for many of our patients. We want to help these patients appreciate the quality of our offerings, as well as our community.
River Edge is a quiet, suburban borough with easy access to New York City. As close as NYC is, though, it feels like a world away. This comfortable, walkable community is a great place to enjoy as you seek out the best dentistry.
About River Edge
River Edge is a community that dates from before the Revolutionary War, though it was not incorporated until 1894 (as Riverside, a name that changed in 1930.) It is the site of New Bridge Landing, where General George Washington retreated after defeat at the Battle of New York. This strategic move saved the Continental Army, whose destruction would have meant all but certain defeat for the Thirteen Colonies.
River Edge has many historic structures, but it’s also a reasonable destination for modern shopping, in addition to its easy access to NYC.
