About Scott D. Galkin

“I’m the lucky one who gets to make kids happy and watch them grow up,” says orthodontist Dr. Scott Galkin, who parents describe as “gentle and approachable.” His practice in Woodbridge has grown steadily for 18 years, thanks to rave reviews by referring dentists, patients and their parents. An Invisalign® Elite Provider, Dr. Galkin offers years of experience with this increasingly popular nonbraces treatment for teens and adults. A comfortable and virtually invisible option, Invisalign can be removed for normal brushing. Of course, he also offers traditional metal braces.

This easy-going orthodontist and his friendly staff maintain flexible hours to accommodate their patients’ busy lives. Patients benefit from the latest technology, including a handy smart phone app for appointments and a digital scanner for taking Invisalign impressions without gooey molds.

After graduating first in his class at UMDNJ, he completed orthodontic training at Columbia University’s School of Dental and Oral Surgery. A New Jersey Monthly Top Dentist since 2012, Dr. Galkin has also been named a Favorite Kids’ Doc by New Jersey Family magazine since 2010. He considers it a privilege to give back to local schools and community organizations. “Woodbridge is my hometown, so I connect easily with the kids and parents here,” he says.
