In addition to being an excellent dentist and an expert in the field of implant dentistry, Dr. Oshidar has a huge heart. When you mention kids to him – especially his own – he just melts. For the past few years, he has donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: an organization that helps sick children and supports their families during their illness.
So for his holiday gift this year, the Roselle Park Dental
& Implants staff collectively purchased Dr. Oshidar a dedication brick from
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The brick was engraved, and will be
placed on the hospital’s “Pathway of Hope” in Tennessee.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands,
treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer
survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. Families never receive a bill from St.
Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because they believe all
a family should worry about is helping their child live.

If you skipped getting a dental checkup last year, you’re not alone. Many people find it all too easy to find reasons not to go to the dentist! Unfortunately, however, this can wind up costing you more money and time in the dental chair later on, so it’s well worth it to schedule these visits twice a year. And since a new year just began, it’s the perfect time to make a fresh start and schedule an appointment with a dentist in Roselle Park. Learn more below about the many ways that checkups benefit you and how these visits will improve and maintain your oral health in 2019!
The start of a New Year is the perfect time to transform our
habits and behaviors, since it affords us a clean slate. As we reflect on what
we want to improve about our lives, we often focus on our health: eat better,
exercise more, get enough sleep, etc. This year, why not mix it up a
little? Make 2019 the year you resolve
to get the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve!
Did you know that your oral health has a direct impact on your overall health? According to the Mayo Clinic, studies suggest that oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with periodontitis — a severe form of gum disease — might play a role in some diseases. In addition, certain diseases, such as diabetes and HIV/AIDS, can lower the body’s resistance to infection, making oral health problems more severe.
So, how can you improve your oral health?
Brush AND Floss Every Day While most people are motivated to brush their teeth every day, according to a Delta Dental survey, only four of 10 Americans floss at least once a day, and 20 percent never floss! If you already have a habit of brushing your teeth before bed each night, try adding flossing to the routine – tell yourself you can’t brush your teeth until you have flossed them.
Visit Us – Your Dentist! – Every Six Months for Routine Checkups and Cleaning This is important for two reasons. First of all, we miss you if we don’t see you twice a year! And secondly, having any plaque build up removed professionally by your hygienist prevents tartar from forming which can lead to cavities and gum disease. Additionally, seeing the dentist frequently allows him or her to look for any signs of decay or changes since your last visit. If small problems are caught early they can often be corrected before they become larger and worse issues.
Fix or Replace Broken and Missing Teeth Many people do not realize that dental reconstruction should be a primary health concern. Living with one or multiple missing teeth can have a devastating impact on your quality of life. Over time, it can negatively affect not just your psychological well-being and confidence, but also your overall health. In the absence of tooth roots, a person’s facial features can shift out of proper alignment, resulting in sagging or misshaped facial features.
We would love to help you achieve your healthiest most beautiful smile in 2019! Visit us at www.roselleparkdental.com or call us today to schedule your next appointment: 908-998-4698.

One of my patients is in charge of this
fundraiser for injured veterans: the Fallen War Heroes Memorial 5k. As most of
my patients know, this a cause that is very near and dear to my heart because
of my time in the United States Air Force (USAF). The event was held in Lake
Como, NJ and despite inclement weather, the memorial run had almost 900 runners
The race raised over $25,000, a fifth of which was gifted to Corporal Scott Nokes from Neptune. Corporal Nokes lost his eyesight and both his legs from a rare illness contracted during his two tours of duty in the Middle East. A home is being built for him in Howell through the Steven Stiller Foundation
The rest of the money raised by the 5k was generously donated to Rebuilding Warriors, a non-profit organization that provides service dogs to veterans.
In attendance were New Jersey
Governor Phil Murphy and his wife Tammy. After the race, there was a barbecue
and a memorial service celebrating all those who lost their lives on
Dentures are a great way to replace a whole row or part of
your smile. If you’ve been missing multiple teeth and have dentures, you may
experience slipping, sliding, and discomfort when you talk, laugh, or chew.
While they do help to restore the look and function of your smile, they can
often become unstable because dentures rest on top of your gums. Keep reading
to discover how dental implants can provide maximum denture stabilization in
Anyone with missing teeth will tell you that they cause WAY
more problems than just an unsightly gap in the smile. Food choices quickly
become limited, people can develop an uncontrollable lisp or slur when they
speak, and self-confidence…well, that just goes out the window! While
traditional bridges and dentures can fix some of the issues brought on by
missing teeth, only dental implants
can solve absolutely all of them. Whatever grief your incomplete smile might be
causing you, dental implants in Roselle Park can provide the comprehensive
solution you’ve been looking for.
As a friendly reminder, if you have dental treatment you’ve put on hold, now may be a good time to schedule an appointment to maximize your insurance benefits.
Even if you don’t need extensive treatment, you should schedule a regular check up and cleaning appointment to help prevent costly procedures in the future. You’re probably paying a monthly premium to keep your insurance, so be sure to use it before the year end!
It is also a great time to use any remaining flexible account dollars you may have saved up. Flexible accounts are created to set aside pre-tax dollars for medical and dental expenses, but if that money is not used before the end of the year, it is lost to you forever.
Our holiday season does book up quickly, so call us today at (908) 998-4698 or visit roselleparkdental.com to schedule your appointment. If you have any questions about your insurance coverage or benefits, we would be happy to help you. We look forward to seeing you!

Everyone knows that decay and accidents can seriously damage teeth. That’s why dentists constantly admonish their patients to take precautions that will safeguard their smile from the ravages of sugar and the possibility of a traumatic accident. However, there is another type of tooth damage that you may not think about very often: tooth wear. Let’s discuss the types of tooth wear and how your dentist in Roselle Park can help you address this problem.
What is your favorite sport?
Dancing. I do not do it professionally, but I dance a lot at home and when I go out. I even do it as a form of exercise.
Have you ever had a favorite pet?
I have only had fish since my dad is allergic to cats and dogs. I like fish because they stay in a glass tank and mind their business – gracefully swimming their life away. If I had the time to have a pet right now, I would want a cocker spaniel because they are so cute!
What is your favorite activity when you are not working?
Cleaning and watching YouTube videos. Not your typical hobby, but I love cleaning and seeing everything spotless. I’m a clean freak and I love the smell of a clean home. As for YouTube, I watch DIY videos on random things and makeup tutorials. You can learn pretty much anything on YouTube. I watch it more than TV to be honest.
Why did you choose to become a dental professional?
I fell into this position. It is not what I went to school for – I am a graduate of Montclair State University – but I do enjoy it. I learn more and more about teeth every day especially since my job is to give quotes on treatment. I learn about the importance of oral hygiene and about available treatments that range from general, to major restoration. All of it is very intriguing and working here has made me so aware of the overall importance of the dental field. I am very appreciative to be a part of the Roselle Park Dental & Implants team!
