what sets us apart

What Sets Us Apart

We are happy you are considering our practice for orthodontic treatment. Stern Orthodontics was founded in 1958 by Dr. Robert Stern’s father, Dr. Gershon Stern.

We have been creating beautiful similes in Southern New Jersey longer than any other orthodontic practice. Our practice provides a warm, inviting, family-friendly atmosphere where our focus is to put you at ease.

Clinical Excellence: Dr. Stern is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a distinction held by only 25% of orthodontists in the country. To become a board certified, an orthodontist has to pass a rigorous set of written and clinical examinations as well as a comprehensive review of his credentials. 

In addition, Drs. Stern and Stavisky are very often referred to for more complicated orthodontic cases that require jaw surgery or involve multiple dental disciplines.

Customized Treatment plans:  We never look at a growing child without envisioning what that child’s face will look like as an adult. When we meet a child, we look at the accompanying parent for features that have been passed along.  This helps us greatly in designing an orthodontic treatment plan that will maximize the patient’s dental and facial esthetics.

Advanced Technology for an Advanced Smile:  Length of time in practice alone is no badge of honor.  However, staying current in refining and developing personalized treatments and blending them with the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies available such as digital X-rays, self-ligating braces, Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®, AcceleDent®, and surgical treatment therapies make it easier. We are an evidenced based practice, which means we carefully evaluate and incorporate new technologies only when they are clinically proven to succeed. We carefully select when these technologies should be utilized, while never taking our eye off the quality of results and the comfort, convenience, and cost to our patients.

Superior Customer Care:  Your experience in our office means everything to us. Our goal is a level of personal attention that exceeds all others. We believe orthodontic treatment is a journey and we want to make every aspect enjoyable. Our staff is committed to make sure this happens. If there is anything we can do to make your experience even more pleasant, please do not hesitate to ask. We will always do our absolute best to make sure it happens.

After-Hours Emergencies:  We are here for you no matter what! We’re always on call during non-office hours, and will always be available to help in any situation that may arise. While orthodontic emergencies are rare, we are always here to help if they do.
