About S. Sharon Maloney

“I am thrilled to be nominated again as a New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist by the colleagues who collaborate with me and know my work best,” says Dr. S. Sharon Maloney, who specializes in laser periodontal treatment, dental implants, cosmetic surgery, gum grafting, sinus lifts and the treatment of gum disease. This board-certified periodontist has grown and re-energized the respected 40-year-old practice she took over in 2015.

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 to diabetes, heart trouble, rheumatoid arthritis and other medical conditions.” Unfortunately most adults develop gum disease, but the good news is that this doctor can treat it. She performs pain-free LANAP® and LAPIP™ procedures with the only FDA-approved laser that regenerates lost bone.

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 staff focus on providing excellent care and winning their patients’ trust everyday. “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.”
