About Alan Hecht

Our practice has a legacy of providing exceptional patient care,” says Dr. Alan Hecht, a seven-time New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist. He—along with Dr. Robert Albin, Dr. Joel Efron, and Dr. Douglas Jacobus—has a practice that spans over 50 years and represents four generations of dentists.

Dr. Hecht credits the practice’s longevity to the quality of the relationships he and his colleagues have nurtured with patients, referring doctors, and the communities where their three offices are located.

“It’s because we’re a local practice—and not a large healthcare organization—that we’re able to get to know our patients and spend time with them,” he says. “We treat the whole person, not just their teeth. And we’re here for them when they need us.”

The practice offers a full scope of services with an emphasis on wisdom tooth extractions and dental implants. His technologically advanced office includes a 3-D intraoral scanner and a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner for the treatment planning and precise placement of dental implants.

Dr. Hecht is a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. He is chief of oral surgery at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital–Somerset.
