Just moved back to Edgewater, NJ from Florida and my dentist recommended Dr Cherish for my son. Their office is bright and welcoming. It’s never an easy task to take my 3 yr old to see a dentist. Dr Cherish was very calm, understanding and easy to talk to.

Nice experience! I thought my girl needed crowns on her baby teeth but Dr. Im advised to let it fall out naturally. Happy to find a dentist that looked out for the best interest of my child!

As a professional in the medical field, I can undoubtedly say that there are some dentists and doctors that overtreat patients and unnecessarily send patients to the hospital. Dr. Cherish is definitely not that type of dentist. She treatedmy kid with their best interest in mind. Very pleased to discover an honest dentist with integrity. Hard to find.
