Charles J. Perruzzi, DMD
I truly enjoy being a dentist, as it is a mix of science and communication. I love getting to know my patients personally and teaching them how to take great care of their teeth. I also get to use my clinical skills to help them maintain their oral health to avoid discomfort. Dentistry is a fulfilling and wonderful profession, and I look forward to seeing patients every day.
My grandfather, who was the Chief of Oral Surgery at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center in New York City, was very influential in my decision to attend dental school. In fact, during dental school, I experienced two internships in Oral Surgery at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and St Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center. Before I started practicing dentistry, I obtained a B.A. in Biology from Rutgers University and I attained my DMD from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. I received a Certificate in General Practice Residency from Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, where I was Chief Resident.
Our patients benefit from our emphasis on continuing education through our utilization of the latest technology and techniques that have absolutely shown to improve the dental experience and level of care for our patients. As part of my continuing education, I am a Facilitator for the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine’s Dental Ethics program, and a Past instructor for the Lehigh Valley Hospital GPR Program as well as a Past instructor for the Muhlenberg Hospital GPR Program. I am an active member of the American Dental Association, NJ Dental Association, Academy of Osseointegration and ITI International Team for Implantology. I am also a Fellow of the New York Academy of Dentistry and the Academy of General Dentistry. On the local level, I am involved with and attend monthly meetings of the Bergen County Dental Society, Ridgewood Rotary and The Ridgewood Valley Study Club.
I was born in New York City, grew up in Maplewood, NJ and now live in Allendale with my wonderful wife, Grace, and three children, our son Charlie and twin girls, Chloe and Ciara. Outside of the office, I love spending quality time with my family and attending sporting events especially Rutgers and Giants football games and Yankee baseball games. One of my greatest passions is golf and whenever I get a free moment one can find me hitting the links!
