About Irvin B. Sherman

For more than 40 years, Dr. Irvin Sherman has provided exceptional dental and orthodontic care for infants, children, teens and special needs patients—always delivered in a friendly and nonthreatenting manner. “Just as children need a pediatrician, they also need a pediatric dentist trained in child psychology and dental growth and development,” he says. “Providing children with a positive dental experience often inspires them to take lifelong care of their teeth.”

Dr. Sherman’s team offers one-on-one attention to foster trust with young patients and their parents. “When children start to relax in the chair, enabling them to become adults who don’t fear the dentist, I’ve done my job well,” he says. Pediatric dentists Jocelyn Jeffries-Bruno, Britni Kearns, Jason Tesoriero and Binni Patel, along with orthodontist Martin Rabinovich, are part of his team. A friendly dedicated staff helps families feel at home here. Within his practice Dr. Sherman has also established the Jersey Shore Center for Breastfeeding and Infant Oral Health, where he performs a frenectomy procedure using laser therapy to allow easier breastfeeding.

A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, Dr. Sherman completed his specialty training at Boston University School of Graduate Dentistry. The board-certified pediatric dentist is also a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, for which he served as the first public policy advocate for pediatric dentistry health in New Jersey. He donates services to underprivileged children through Give Kids A Smile and Dentistry from the Heart.
