About Clara Hyun

Focused on quality rather than quantity, Dr. Clara Hyun has built a practice where patient comfort and safety is paramount. A career-long dedication to continuing education has made her the highly respected dentist she is today. “Being part of a hands-on, professional dental study group has taught me the discipline of checking every step along the way and not cutting any corners,” she says.

In practice for almost four decades, Dr. Hyun has treated generations of families. “It’s one of the nice things about being in a small practice,” she says. “Many patients have become like family to me over time.” Dr. Hyun, who works with Dr. Tom Viccaro and Dr. Shivani Parikh, is highly sought after for her beautiful restorations, particularly for using gold in onlays and inlays to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible. She focuses on aesthetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, crowns, and implant restorations, often using a dental dam to help maintain both moisture and infection control. Her practice welcomes special needs patients, especially children with autism.

She also offers Invisalign®, Botox®, collagen threads, and other facial fillers, and every patient is screened for sleep apnea, a debilitating but treatable condition that can be addressed with oral appliances. Her office schedules evening and weekend appointments, and the staff speaks several languages, including Korean, Russian, and Spanish.

A graduate of the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and a former general practice resident at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Dr. Hyun has maximized safety protocols, equipping her office with biofilter water sterilization, air purifiers, fogger disinfection, and an innovative extraoral suction system to remove aerosol contamination.
