About S. Sharon Maloney

“I am thrilled to be nominated as a New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist by the colleagues who collaborate with me and know my work best,” says Dr. Sharon Maloney, who specializes in dental implants, cosmetic surgery, gum grafting, sinus-lifts and the treatment of gum disease. This board-certified periodontist has been growing and reenergizing the respected 40-year-old practice she took over three years ago—and plans to work there for the next 40 years.

Dr. Maloney wants people to understand the importance of preserving their gums and jawbone, as healthy foundations for their teeth. “Gum disease is a serious matter that should not be ignored,” she says. “What goes on in the mouth correlates with diabetes, heart trouble, rheumatoid arthritis and other medical conditions.” Although most adults develop gum disease, it can be alleviated with periodic treatment and good hygiene. Dr. Maloney relishes her daily interaction with patients and the opportunity to save their teeth. Patients speak highly of her as a personable doctor who genuinely cares.

After graduating from NYU College of Dentistry, Dr. Maloney completed her specialty training at UMDNJ, where she also earned a master of science in dentistry. She and her experienced, affectionate staff focus on providing excellent care and winning their patients’ trust every day. “Going to the dentist is never fun, but we try to make the experience as pleasant as possible,” she says. “My patients leave here happy and healthy, knowing that we paid attention to their concerns. I get a lot of hugs.”
