    Finding a good dentist can be difficult, especially if you are looking for a dentist to service the whole family. That’s why here at Smiles by Rizzo, our staff goes above and beyond to create a welcoming atmosphere where your family will feel right at home. After completing his residency in New Jersey, Dr. Rizzo decided to stay and practice right here in Carlstadt, NJ. As a proud member of the community, he joined local organizations New Jersey Dental Association and Bergen County Dental Society. In doing so, Dr. Rizzo is always up to date with the latest practices in family dentistry. This allows him to serve his patients of all ages as best as possible.

    “I can’t say enough about this office. This was the best dental experience I have ever had, the staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. Nuria is an amazing dental hygienist she was reassuring and calming every step of the way, the doctor was also calming, caring and knowledge. The equipment in the office is new and up to date and very clean. I had brought my 4 year old daughter here first who is very much scared of doctors and she loved them, now our entire family goes to Dr.Rizzo. We are so very happy with them, they are the best in their field for sure.”

    “After one visit with Dr. Rizzo I realized there is no reason to fear going to the dentist anymore. He has the most amazing bedside manner when dealing with patients. He is calm and reassuring and never makes you feel guilty for neglecting your oral care. He takes the time to explain everything in detail and makes sure you understand that it’s not as bad as you think it is. His staff is amazing as well. They take the time to go over your estimate and will work with you to figure out the best way to maximize your insurance dollars in order to make it most affordable to you. They are not out to rip you off and make you pay for unnecessary treatments or procedures you don’t need. I have transferred my family’s dental care into his capable hands and I refer EVERYONE I know to him as well. They are that good!”

    At Smiles by Rizzo, we use KoR teeth whitening – a dual activated, Tri-Barrel Hydremide Peroxide formulation and delivery system. This provides exceptional teeth whitening without lasers or lights. KoR teeth whitening works by forming hydrogen peroxide. Teeth whitening occurs when this hydrogen peroxide breaks down into radicals and byproducts that are known as “bleaching factors.” Most gels are only capable of this teeth whitening for 25-35 minutes, whereas KoR whitening provides anywhere from 6-10 hours of whitening through its KoR-Seal trays. As a result, your teeth are thoroughly cleaned and rejuvenated to an amazingly white appearance.


    When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available are composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings.

    Another benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they are compatible with sealants allowing your dentist to perform both procedures in a single sitting preventing further decay. There are other advantages to composite, tooth-colored fillings, most importantly the capability of bonding to tooth structure. Additionally, in many cases, they can be repaired by addition of more composite material. Depending on the situation, Dr. Rizzo can advise the whole family to decide what option is best for each individual.

    Sedation dentistry has been around for over 100 years, and has continued to evolve over the last 40 years as more options are made available to patients. In order to perform sedation, dentists are required to become accredited and complete additional training. However, its widespread acceptance and use has come about more slowly than medical sedation.

    While it is common practice to be sedated by doctors for medical procedures, for some time there has been the misconception that routine dental work is not uncomfortable enough to justify the use of sedation. Fortunately, dental sedation is now used worldwide. It has proven to be a safe and effective option for a variety of patients and procedures.

    Emergency Dental Care in Carlstadt, NJ
