Adam Rauzman, DDS

My name is Dr. Adam Rauzman. I would like to change the way that you feel about a visit to the dentist. Dentistry, for the most part, has gotten a bad reputation as one of the more anxiety-provoking branches of health care. For some, this anxiety can be traced to a traumatic childhood experience. For others, it’s the water cooler story of a root canal gone terribly wrong. The angst becomes even more pronounced when you add into the mix the difficulties in dealing with insurance companies (managed care), as well as the general unease when discussing personal finances. Our goal is to do our best to make your dental visit as painless and effortless as possible.

Dr. Rauzman’s Credentials:

  • Graduated from Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine with Clinical Honors
  • General Residency at North Shore University Hospital
  • Mini-Residency in Implant Dentistry
  • Invisalign® Certified
  • Member AGD, AAID, & Bergen County Dental Implant Club

Alexander Kim, DDS

Dr. Alex Kim is our in-house endodontist (root canal specialist). He has been in practice for 12 years and has worked with us for over four years. Dr. Kim is a great asset to this office and our patients. His innovative approach in root canals make the process of needing one an easy for our patients.

No one enjoys hearing that they need to have a root canal treatment, but the experience is much more pleasant with Dr. Kim because he takes every step required to make your visit an easy one. His love for endodontics allows for a level of excellence with a great degree of caring and compassion that is exceptional and beneficial to our patients. Dr. Kim is also a member of the AAE as well as the ADA.

Melissa Pallotta, DMD

Dr. Melissa Pallotta has been in the dental field since she was 12 years old, and as a result, she is very, very passionate about the work she does and the patients whom she has met. She graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and a minor in psychology. Following her undergraduate studies, Dr. Pallotta received her Doctor of Medicinal Dentistry in 2016 from Temple University School of Dentistry. In 2017, she also graduated from the Dental Implant Learning Center with a Certificate in Implantology.

Dr. Pallotta would like her patients to feel as if they are spending time with family members when they visit our office. She wants her patients to feel comfortable with coming into the office and asking any questions while knowing that they will get a clear, concise answer. Dr. Pallotta would like to try and make everyone feel at ease because she knows that, for many patients, coming to the dentist is not their favorite thing to do. Being that she is a resident of Hawthorne, NJ, Dr. Pallotta is also very familiar with the community and loves when she is out in the town and sees one of her patients.
