General Dentistry

It isn’t always easy to fit dental appointments into your busy schedule. You don’t want the kids to miss school or be late, and you don’t have time during the day to see your Hackensack dentist.

At Peak Family Dentistry, we understand these issues and want you and your family to get the dental services you need without rearranging your work, school, or family schedules. For these reasons, we offer early morning and evening hours at Peak Family Dentistry. We are also in the office one to two Saturdays per month.

Our Hackensack, NJ dentists enjoy treating existing patients and meeting new patients, too. Having extended service hours helps them do this.

Additionally, because we see patients from as far away as New York, it only makes sense to offer extended hours to accommodate their commute.  

Our team is invested in making your dentistry easier and taking care of your dental needs on your time.

For more information about extended dental hours and Saturday appointments, contact a member of our dental team today. If you haven’t scheduled an exam in a while, or if you’re due for a dental exam and professional teeth cleaning, we encourage you to get in touch.

We look forward to your call.

At Peak Family Dentistry, we understand dental phobia and anxiety and always work hard to create a comfortable and relaxing environment for our patients.

Our dentists in Hackensack, NJ are also well-trained and experienced with nitrous oxide and oral sedation when necessary. Nitrous oxide is a relaxation gas delivered through a small nose mask. The effects wear off when the mask is removed, making it okay for patients to drive themselves home.

Also, Dr. Heaney is a board-certified dental anesthesiologist and capable of administering IV sedation in our dental office when indicated. For those who need more invasive dental treatments or have a special need, our Hackensack dentists have operating room privileges at Hackensack Meridian's Hackensack University Medical Center.

It is essential to have a friend or family member drive you to your dental procedure if you opt for sedation. It is also important not to make any life decisions or operate machinery or a vehicle on the day of sedation.

Our dentists want you to feel relaxed and at ease every time you visit our dental office. If you have a particular phobia, general anxiety, or an issue that requires a specialized approach, we encourage you to contact a member of our dental team today.
