Galfund Family Dentistry has been serving the greater Bergen County area for 20+ years.
The reason we have been so successful for so many years is because we know that there is a person attached to the teeth, and we get to know our patients BEFORE we look at their teeth. We want to understand what someone may have experienced as a dental patient and what they may want to accomplish or achieve with their teeth in their future. By working together with our patients we can plan a course of action and make their wants and needs a reality.
We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about visiting the dentist and we are dedicated to providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is devoted to giving excellent personalized care and service to make your visit as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
We have flexible hours so that we can work with you and your schedule. Whatever your dental needs may be, we provide care so that you can have a lifetime of good oral health and a smile that you love.
Hi there. I am a general dentist located in Norwood, NJ and I wanted to let people know I am available for emergencies if needed. Having a broken tooth, swelling or toothache pain can be inconvenient at best or it can be a real problem. I am here to help.
In light of many offices closing, I have chosen to help my patients and the community by being available for those that need.
We continue to take every recommended CDC precaution and adhere to our strict sterilization and cleanliness protocols at all times. We are also staggering any patient visits so that only one patient (and family member) is in the office at a time.
I am also always open to talk and answer any questions people may have about either their teeth, or anything else. I am here for you.
We can speak via FaceTime, or a video chat program called Zoom, if needed. People can also call me on the office phone, (201-768-5697) so we can discuss any dental issues in (virtual) person or to set up a visit.
Furthermore, myself and the staff are healthy as well as all of our family members. NONE of us (or family members) has had any signs or symptoms of the Coronavirus or any flu like virus.

Even today, Dr. Galfund is always taking continuing education courses to make sure he is up to date on all the latest techniques and technology in the field.

My husband, two daughters and I have been patients of Dr. Galfunds for 15 years. He is always so kind and explains everything. I like that he doesn't rush me out of the chair, taking the time necessary to ensure he does a complete and professional job. The office staff is always so warm and welcoming. It makes having to go to the dentist a pleasant experience.

My now grown boys and myself have been going to Dr. Galfund since 2006. At that time we were searching for a new dentist and when I asked around his name came up multiple times. Prior to going to Dr. Galfund, I had a lost a permanent tooth and needed a bridge. Once Dr. Galfund made the bridge, which looked exactly like my own teeth, I had the confidence to smile again. He is always taking courses to make sure he brings the best techniques and treatments to his patients.
I was not a patient of Dr. Galfunds, but needed a second opinion after one dentist told me it was impossible to save the tooth of my 15 year old. Dr. Galfund always makes time to see local kids whether they are his patient or not. He was wonderful and 100 percent accurate with his treatment suggestion. I am so grateful he took the time out of his day to make us feel so important. He is absolutely wonderful.
I have been a patient of Dr. Galfund since he opened his doors 20 years ago. Even though I now live in Montrose, NY I still make the trip over the Bear Mountain Bridge to get the quality of care his practice offers. The hygienist Marina is amazing and does wonderful work as well. Our family is happy to travel for quality care and that is what we get from Dr. Galfund and his staff.
