I cannot believe I waited so long to have my once beautiful smile restored. Dr. Tuckman was more than thorough than I ever realized was necessary. He carefully explained and executed every step along the way. I could not believe the difference even the temporaries made. Then a few weeks later the final product was put on. Dr. Tuckman worked tirelessly to get them perfect and as comfortable as my natural teeth. I cannot say enough about him and Zelda, his right-hand gal, and they synchronized the total efforts and steps. The best part is that I cannot stop smiling! What a treat!

My experience as a longtime patient of Clifton Dental Associates has been one of efficient, gentle and professional dentistry. The doctors and hygienists are professional. The receptionists are courteous and always helpful. I know that I am in good hands when I have an appointment at Clifton Dental Associates.

Madeline B.A.

I am so pleased with the way my teeth looked after I got porcelain veneers at Clifton Dental Associates. Not only do they look great, but they feel just like my own teeth.

Rob C.

I’ve been going to Drs. Kayne and Tuckman for years – and they are flat out the best dentists I have ever been to. I’ve never waited more than 10 minutes. The office staff is incredibly helpful – and the hygenists are friendly and perform their jobs with almost no pain. Like many dentists, they only accept Delta Dental – but they have always courtesy filed my claims. Even then, they only charged about $300 for a cleaning, exam and x-rays. That’s pretty cheap, considering the level of service.

PROS: Friendly, helpful, incredible practice!
CONS: None

Scott C.

The dentists and dental hygienists at Clifton Dental Associates are always very friendly and helpful. Dr. Tuckman is always able to answer all my questions and takes my dislike of dental office visits seriously.
