About James Courey

Dr. James Courey, founder of Specialized Dentistry of New Jersey (SDNJ), leads a group of highly respected dentists offering implant, restorative, cosmetic and family dentistry treatment. He and his team provide comprehensive care for adults and families with the highest level of expertise and compassion. “By working with a team of specialists, we can give our patients access to dentistry’s best results – beautiful, functional, and long lasting restorations,” Dr. Courey says.

Founded in 2007, the practice also includes prosthodontist Dr. Joseph Zagami; periodontist Dr. Samantha Aaron; and general dentist Dr. Nicholas Diaz. They work in synergy with specialty trained hygienists and assistants.

“We know our patients well and together attend to the details necessary to achieve their dental goals,” says Dr. Courey. “As a team of specialists, we have a multitude of diagnostic and treatment resources at our fingertips. I am proud of our surgical and restorative track record. Our patients get their money’s worth. Their investment with us leads to successful, long-lasting dentistry.”

A graduate of NYU College of Dentistry, Dr. Courey received training from pioneers and leaders in periodontics, prosthodontics and implant dentistry. “Ongoing study of medical, dental and surgical disciplines provides us with a wide range of diagnostic insight and diversified approaches to tooth replacement solutions,” he says. “There are many resources, tools and technology available today. However, knowing how and when to utilize them is what distinguishes a good dentist from a great dentist. This is what sets us apart.”
