List of Services | Construction update

As our practice continues to grow, we are expanding our facility to meet the needs of our existing and new families. We are also fortunate to welcome back Jocelyn Jeffries-Bruno, DDS. Dr. Jocelyn is pleased to re-introduce herself to our patients and work to establish a trusting and long lasting relationship with each of you. We offer comprehensive pediatric dental and orthodontic care. Our list of services includes the following:

  1. Pediatric restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
  2. NuSmile Crowns (caps)- white.
  3. Porcelain Zirconia for extensively broken-down teeth.

  5. Soft tissue laser dentistry (we have been offering laser frenectomy treatment for mothers and newborns having difficulty nursing).

Our office supports parents, specifically mothers who may be having difficulty with breastfeeding due to frenums that are too short under the lip, tongue or both. The Center for Breastfeeding at Jersey Shore University Medical Center is diagnosing and referring newborns that are tongue-tied to our office. We are also listed as a practitioner with the Tongue Tie Babies Support Group that currently has more than 12,000 members worldwide.

We have in-house continuing education for all of our staff here at Shore Children's Dental Care. Once a month one of our doctors presents on a dental related topic. This allows for our entire staff, both Clinical and Administrative to become educated in an area they may not otherwise be familiar. We pride ourselves in staying up to date in all areas of Pediatric Dentistry.
