HumanizeMD Profile

Some historians credit the Chinese philosopher Confucius with the insightful adage, choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. For me, this feeling is 100% true! At the age of 55, delivering dentistry's best outcomes for the patients that seek my care is still very gratifying to me.

My parents must have followed to this ancient wisdom too. My father was a hospital administrator and my mother a nurse. As healthcare professionals, my folks instilled in me the value of impacting people in a way that made their lives better. Giving back is a way of life for me. I am very involved in raising vital funds to benefit programs that deliver direct intervention for children and adults with autism. In my office, the staff and I dedicate our time and services to help people with autism achieve optimal dental health.

I also spend one day a week, out of the office, mentoring tomorrow’s dental specialists at Columbia University College of Dentistry, where I serve as a volunteer instructor of implant and prosthetic dentistry. Being an instructor of postgraduate dentistry at Columbia University has allowed me to be among the first to learn new, cutting-edge advancements in the field.

As a youngster growing up in New Jersey, with each visit to my friendly family dentist, I increased my respect for him and my desire to want to do what he did when I grew up. His professionalism stuck with me and helped form my healthcare ideology of patient-centered care always! I care for my patients as unique individuals with unique needs. When it comes to dental care or health care, there is no such thing as one size fits all. The human body is one complex unit. The health of your mouth and teeth have a direct impact on the health of your body.

I spent my junior year of high school as an exchange student. I had no idea learning about Brazil's diverse culture and how to speak Portuguese would help spark my love for travel later in life --- but globetrotting I've done! First for dental school at the University of Iowa and then my general practice residency at Naval Hospital Oakland, CA.. Once back on the East Coast I did my prosthodontic training at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein University, Bronx, NY and formal surgical implant training at New York University College of Dentistry, NYC. It was during my twenty years of service in the U.S. Navy that allowed me to venture to remote places of the world, including humanitarian missions to Senegal Africa and this Pacific Rim. Those missions make up some of my proudest accomplishments. Although I believe, my greatest achievements are still ahead of me.

These days the travel I do is with my son and wife, of over 20 years, exploring different countries and cultures. We enjoy history, excellent cuisine, and wines. I also look forward to relaxing and destressing excursions right here at home in NJ, skiing, camping, sitting around a firepit, and riding along a country road on a beautiful day, on my favorite mode of transportation, my motorcycle.

Hear From Our Patients

“I'm a 68 year old woman, and no stranger to the dentist's office. In recent years I have been experiencing, what I call faulty dentistry with two different dentists. I had two failures with upper crown's. I've been suffering from jaw pain (TMJ), biting lips, cheeks inside my mouth, restless sleep, neck and back of the head pain upon waking in the morning. I did complain numerous times to my previous dentist who did do some shaping, but made it worse.

After having two night guards made, which failed. I was at wit's end as to how I was going to get relief. So I resorted to calling Angie's list, because I heard some good things about the service. The representative gave me the names of three dentists. I chose Dr. Courey after reviewing his website and credentials.

Frankly, I wish I would had been given the gift of Dr. Courey, when I was in my 40's. I called his office and explained my problem, and was given time, patience and courtesy by his office team. I was told I would need about an hour for a consultation with the doctor (at a fair price, might I add).

I walked into his office and found a pleasant atmosphere and a friendly staff, who made me feel like they really cared. Dr Courey listened very carefully to my complaints, noted the history, and gave me the most comprehensive exam ever. He did validate that my bite was incorrect. I later had a follow-up visit to review what his findings were, and he explained his methodical plan. He went over what the proper treatment would be to rectify my issues, the time it would take to complete, and a courtesy discount as a senior, which was much appreciated.

Within a short time he made a lower crown bridge, and I began to feel less jaw pain. I was sleeping better and feeling relief.

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't feel gratitude in my heart, and do send him blessings for the person he is, and for his expertise in dentistry.

In all the years of my dental health care, I have never had a more conscientious, caring, compassionate dentist like Dr. Courey.

I'm Hooked!! Awesome practice!!”

“I did my Angie’s List research, for Dentists in my area and found, Dr. Courey DDS. It only took ONE call to get a visit on that same day. The Staff was ready and waiting for me upon my arrival, with a nice greeting and assurances that I would be seen really soon. The procedure to prepare me for the reconnection of the cap was done by a very competent Dental Technician. When the tooth & I were ready, Dr. Courey came in, to finish the procedure. Everything…including the billing, was explained in great detail, and done in a very professional manner. At the end of the procedure I was welcomed as a new patient to the practice, and asked, if there was any thing else they could do for me?” The Angie’s List recommendation for this practice included a coupon for discounted future services. I asked for a future appointment, had another successful visit within a few days, and got to use the coupon. Dr. Courey serves as an example for many other Dental Practices to aspire to.”

“This response might sound like a paid endorsement, but it is not. I have never in my 50 plus years had an experience at a dentist office that would have elicited this response. I would never before taken the time to respond to inquiries about the service that I received.

I Truly believe that Dr. Courey has created an atmosphere in his office that is second to none. Every staff member shows sincere interest in each patient. The ‘charside’ manner is above reproach, the office is clean and organized. The cost of the procedure was very fair. Oh, , yes, the procedure. I needed a crown. A few visits were required to complete the process. And everytime I came to the office they exceeded my expectations. Without any hesitation I recommend Dr. Courey. He and his staff receive my personal ultimate platinum diamond stamp of approval!”

DaveWithout any hesitation I recommend Dr. Courey
