r. Michael Masella has been a fixture in the West Essex area his entire life. He grew up in the community and is now realizing his dream of practicing dentistry in his hometown of West Caldwell. Dr. Masella can thank his uncle, Dr. Tom Masella, for instilling in him a passion for dentistry at an early age. After graduating from UMDNJ in 2005, Dr. Masella and his uncle established Masella Family Dental in West Caldwell, NJ in 2011. They have been working alongside each other helping patients brighten their smiles ever since. Dr. Mike has introduced significant technological advances while maintaining the same high level of compassion that Dr. Tom built the practice on.

Please highlight any unique services that your practice offers. We are a true family dental office. We treat all ages, children and the elderly, and offer various procedures including dental implant placements, restorations and routine dental care. We also offer 24/7 emergency care. It’s common for me to be in the office treating emergencies on the weekend or holidays. When I say 24/7 emergency services, I mean it. When you call the office after hours, there isn’t an answering service. You get my cell phone no matter what time of the day. Are you using any new technology in your office? We have a cone beam CT scan machine that allows us to take a 3D scan of the patient. It allows our procedures to be more predictable with better results. Cone beam CT is the highest level of technology with regards to endodontics and oral surgery. It allows us to see any pathology that could be missed with a regular dental x-ray. Describe the patient-doctor relationship at your practice. Our office motto hangs in the reception area: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” This motto is felt in everything we do, whether it’s an explanation of a root canal or performing a smile makeover. Patients are treated with respect and are always our number one priority.
