Welcome to Affiliated Periodontists of North Jersey, the office of Dr. Robert Jaffin, Dr. Akshay Kumar, and Dr. Mike Jaffin. We are a dental specialty practice that focuses on the treatment of diseases and conditions associated with the periodontal tissues (gums and bones) of the mouth as well as specializing in the surgical placement of dental implants.

Our practice is regarded internationally as a leader in the field of dental implant therapy. The doctors have educated thousands of restorative and surgical dentists through lectures, publications, and teaching symposiums throughout the world. In 1984, we were one of the first practices in the tri-state area to start placing implants. Since that time, we have placed well over 25,000 dental implants. Proper placement of your implant is critical in that it sets the foundation for achieving a highly functional, esthetic, and long-lasting result. Hundreds of dentists from the tri-state area have referred their patients to Drs. Jaffin and Kumar for the placement of dental implants. Following successful integration of your implant, you return to your dentist for the fabrication of the prosthesis (crown), giving your crown the best foundation possible.

The philosophy of our practice is and has always been to provide patients with a treatment plan that will promote the best long-term prognosis while being performed in a timely and cost-efficient manner. We strive to communicate with our patients about risks, benefits, and alternatives while operating in a caring environment. Although we are a very busy practice, our goal is to make each patient feel as though they are our only patient. We have a dedicated and caring staff (many of whom have been with the practice for over 20 years).
