Dr. Le Pera is amazing! Came out early on a Sunday for an emergency… Helped my daughter and put her at ease… From the Doctor, to the hygienist , to the secretarial staff- all are outstanding!
Though our dentists can extract teeth if necessary, saving a damaged tooth is often the better option. With root canals in Hackensack, they can save infected teeth rather than removing them. You’ll enjoy a faster recovery and avoid the expense of a replacement tooth.

Great dentist and staff. Very glad I chose to come here for my dental visit. Definitely recommend to friends and family!
This was my first visit at a new dentist office and I was nervous to get my checkup. I enjoyed my hygienist Carmen, the cleaning it was very thorough and the staff was very professional. I will definitely be back for my 6 month visit!
Dr. LaPera had been my dentist for 15 years. He is extremely professional and has a wonderful pleasant manner. I recommended him to a friend from NYC and she now goes regularly. I am fortunate to have found him when I moved from NY.
Excellent dental practice. I have been a patient for 20 years. The doctors and staff are professional, on time and caring. Great communication and they always put the patient’s needs first. I have recommended Summit Dental to other friends who have also been highly satisfied. My teeth love these guys.
This is the best dentist I have been to. The place is very clean they have been sanitizing everything down before covid-19 came into existence. The doctor is the best dentist i know of he is very kind, patient, and gentle. His work is perfect.
I would highly recommend this dental practice for all dental care. Dr. Le Pera is a true perfectionist and his care for the patients is his main priority. My experience is my main focus to this review. The staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. Carmen, the Hygienist, is also a wonderful asset to the practice. She is thorough with her cleanings and care for her patients. Definitely an A+
Loved my hygienist Carmen. She gave me lots of helpful tips and didn’t use electric tools to clean. I loved this because I have a lot of sensitivity and the electric tools exacerbates my symptoms. Which means she listened to my worries and honored them. Dr. Le Pera is awesome as always and keeps me well informed.
Really the best dentist I could ever ask for. I know they are a trusted source and Dr. L is truly one of a kind. Someone who genuinely cares about his clients- it always feels like family. I do all my work here- what I love is that if Dr. L is super honest – and if he knows of someone better suited for a particular procedure he will tell me transparently and recommend the best. No dentist can beat him. He doesn’t look to do more work than needed and always takes a conservative approach to help retain your natural teeth as much as possible. (Important to me since I’ve broken my 3 front teeth in half due to a fall and he’s done brilliant veneers). The receptionist and support staff are lovely as well. And if you need a cleaning ask for Carmen – she’s fantastic.
From the warm welcome upon arrival, to the thorough cleaning by Carmen the Hygienist, to the professional and gentle exam by Dr Le Pera, my experience was terrific. I’ll be back!
Root canal treatment involves cleaning out the diseased inner portion of your tooth, known as the pulp, sterilizing it, and sealing the root canals with a special rubber-like material. This procedure will stop the pain caused by the infection in your tooth, plus it will allow us to save the tooth without having to remove it.
Root canal treatment costs can vary, depending on which tooth needs treatment, the severity of the infection, and other factors. Once we’ve completed an exam on your tooth and taken a set of digital X-rays, we can give you an accurate cost on your individual treatment. Keep in mind also that you can save 20 percent on your treatment when you enroll in our Summit Dental Plan.
We’ll make every effort to ensure that your root canal treatment is as comfortable as possible. We’ll numb the tooth so that you don’t feel anything, plus sedation is always available to help you relax. Our patients report that root canal treatment is actually no more uncomfortable than having a tooth filled.
