About Mark J. Caplan

“A confident smile can change how people view themselves,” says Dr. Mark Caplan. “My greatest reward is seeing the reveal of a new smile that patients thought they would never have.” Honored to be a New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist for the 11th time, Dr. Caplan credits his practice’s success to a passion for overall excellence. “We strive to provide a ‘total office experience’ where patients and parents leave smiling,” he says. By providing accurate diagnoses, advanced treatments and individualized care, he is able to achieve his goals of improved health, function, and appearance. “Producing the highest-quality orthodontic results requires the concerted efforts of a great team,” he says. “My staff sets our practice apart.”

Patient education is an important focus for Dr. Caplan. “Informed parents are happy parents. We make sure they thoroughly understand treatment options, what we’re trying to achieve and how we’re going to get there. Then, we review progress at every step,” he says. Patients describe his office as “high-tech, yet inviting,” with its iTero® digital study models, digital X-rays, TV, video games, wi-fi and coffee bar.

Dr. Caplan has special interest in early treatment and the Damon® self-ligating bracket system, and is an Invisalign® Preferred Provider. A graduate of University of Maryland Dental School, he completed his orthodontic residency at University of Detroit Mercy.
