Daniel W. Carey, DDS

With three decades of experience in the Basking Ridge area, Dr. Carey is an experienced and compassionate dentist who offers high quality, comprehensive gentle dental care in his state-of-the art practice. Through the use of the latest technological advances in dentistry, such as the Compudent Wand (a syringe free, computer directed anesthesia delivery system), Dr. Carey’s goal is to alleviate the pain, discomfort and anxiety that are often associated with a visit to the dentist's office.

Dr. Carey takes the time to talk to his patients about their oral health and treatment options. "Communication is an important part of establishing trust. I talk to my patients throughout a procedure so they understand exactly what's happening and treat them the way I want to be treated when I'm in a dentist's chair." He utilizes the latest innovations in intraoral cameras to clearly show the patient what he is doing, to put their minds at ease.

Dr. Carey completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at Seton Hall University and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at New York University College of Dentistry. He also completed a hospital residency at the JFK Medical Center. He is a frequent guest at local schools - especially in February during Children's Dental Health Month. Also, he is a member of the American Dental Association and takes part in Apex Seminars.

Dr. Carey and his staff are proud of the warm patient-friendly environment they have created and of the lifelong relationships they have built with multi-generational families in the area. Dr. Carey welcomes patients of all ages and looks forward to meeting you and offering you the professional, caring and pain free oral health care that you deserve.

When not in the office, Dr. Carey enjoys boating, fishing and golf.

"For 30 years I've enjoyed dentistry because it allows me to relieve patient's pain and restore smiles to a functional and natural beauty. It's very rewarding to see patients smile with confidence at the completion of treatment. That continues to be a wonderful reward to me, and I love it."
