I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! It’s very relieving to go to a Dentist office where you can actually feel at home! Not the typical description for a dentist office but it’s the truth. I’ve been going to them for about 4 years now and have had nothing but beautiful experiences with them. I always look forward to seeing my favorite dentist, Dr. Gerskowitz! Alejandra is AMAZING for your cleanings! I always make sure she’s there for my check-ups/cleanings. Front office staff have become like my sisters. They’re so attentive, professional, but personable. This year, I have had the pleasure of seeing Gina. She did my zoom whitening and also my Invisilign. I recommend her a million times over! If you need a place that takes your oral health seriously and are so gentle, kind, and professional….this is the place to go!

Love this place! Everyone is so happy and positive all the time! Happy to see me as I walk in. But not just me, I’ve noticed they’re like this in general. 🙂 The office itself is very clean and modern, makes me feel very comfortable. No pressure from dentist or the girls, they understand me and look for ways to solve my dental issues financially and with availability. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to switch or just needs a dentist. They are just amazing!!

After many years of bouncing from one dentist to another I finally found the right Dentist.  I had a root canal done by them and they did an amazing job. I can honestly say it did not hurt at all while they performed the procedure.  All the dentists , technicians and staff are knowledgeable, professional and very competent.  They use the absolute latest technology and their number one concern is that the patient be comfortable and pain-free.  On top of that they make sure everything is handled properly with insurance and billing.  If your looking for a great dentist that adheres to the utmost in dental standards do yourself a favor and make an appointment.

As a new client all I can say is that Dr. Gerskowitz and his staff are very nice, personable, professional and caring! I don’t know what else to say but good things about him and his staff. The staff in his office are very welcoming. They go above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome and comfortable. They know the names of all their clients, which I think is very important. They’re all professional and they seem to all love their job. They all love to teach, which I think is also important so that clients know what exactly they’re doing. They’re very knowledgeable and any questions are all welcomed. I love how Dr. Gerskowitz not only takes care of our teeth and mouths’ health but also cares about our smile. They’ll ask you how would you want your smile to be, whether you want to have the California smile or just your own perfect smile, would be up to you. I first came to them just a week ago with my now husband, right before our wedding for cleaning and whitening only at first but boy they made our smiles brighter and prettier. They accommodated me when they said that they’ll fix two of my fillings could’ve been better and nicer specially for pictures. They also have state of the art equipments which tells you that they keep up with what’s new and that you’ll have the best care possible! I highly recommend them and would stay here

I have to say that the result of my treatment have been fantastic so far. I am so thankful to the doctor and his team, and I would definitely recommend this office to anyone.

Unbelievable place. I been going there for about two years and have only positive experience there. From the moment you walk in you are greeted by friendly and knowledgeable front office. I come in sometimes just to chat and have a few laughs with them !! Alex and his staff are super knowledgeable and skilled in art of dentistry . I have never seen such clean and well organized office anywhere. Thumbs up !! And he has the newest coolest tech i have yet to see, which actually made my treatments quicker and almost painless. I have already made my wife a big fan and a client. Try it once and you’ll see how for real this place is. Oh btw all staff has an excellent sense of humor, that’s also huge in my book.

I did some research looking for a dental office with the latest technology and a doctor/staff with good reviews. I chose Avant Guard and I’m glad I did. My old dentist had misdiagnosed a root canal. I went to Dr. Gerskowitz for a second opinion. He identified the root cause (no pun intended), which was sleep apnea and poor bite that make me grind my teeth at night causing inflammation. No root canal needed. I will follow his advice and get an S.A. test. I highly recommend Dr. Gerskowitz

I had amazing experience at this office , everybody was very pleasant and professional. Looking forward for my next visit and definitely recommend to all of my friends and family . Office equipped with state of the art technology , no wait time , kids friendly . Hygienists are very thorough, patient, professional and friendly! .

Rosie R. from Totowa, NJ (Source: Yelp)


The office was very nice and clean inside. All the staff members were so nice and friendly. The doctor was so professional and honest she wouldn’t make you get something that you don’t need. Definitely going back there and referring others to Doctor Gang for Botox. I did my research and I was happy to have found them.

David J. from Wayne, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Finding a good dentist/dental practice is hard, and I’ve definitely had some really bad luck around this area, however Avant Garde really is a great practice. Their office staff, dentists, and hygienists are all experts, and always make sure you feel comfortable throughout your visit. This isn’t a assembly line operation, you’ll be treated quickly, yet not in a manner that is sloppy and rushed. You’ll leave feeling clean and refreshed. Do yourself a favor and check them out.

Eric M. from Rutherford, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I was originally referred to Dr. Alexander Gerskowitz by a coworker about 2-3 yrs ago for a long overdue checkup/cleaning. When I made my first appointment, I wasn’t ecstatic about the 30 minute trip from home but I was very pleased with the friendly staff and very professional and informational services provided by Dr. Alexander Gerskowitz. I’ve been back maybe 7-8 times already for cleanings and fillings and the travel is worth it every time. They have many advanced technologies to offer advanced techniques like laser teeth cleaning, 3-D printer and computers to make on-the-spot custom porcelain fillings for dental procedure called “onlays” (which I had earlier today), and much more. For the past 2 yrs, he had told me I needed to get my wisdom teeth extracted to avoid getting infections. His assistants told me about specialists that they recommend and I held off on it since I had no intention on going to another dentist/specialist. In the past 3 weeks, he extracted all 4 wisdom teeth and the procedures were done so quickly with no pain at all. I chose to go under anesthesia with laughing gas and dealt with no dizziness and effects on driving. I am very pleased that he was able to take care of this for me. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a dentist to give him a try

After having a run of bad experiences, I have finally found a great dental practice in the area. The whole appointment was great from beginning to end, hats off to all of you. Thank you for an awesome visit.

Ky J. from Ringwood, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I recently came to Avant Garde for a cleaning after a bad experience at another dental office and from the minute I walked in the door I felt very welcomed and comfortable. The establishment is clean and up to date. I really like that they have tvs on the chair which is really nice especially if your nervous at the dentist its a great distraction. The girl that cleaned my teeth (i forgot her name) was so sweet and very gentle. The doctor was very efficient and was also very nice and knowledgeable. I also had a teeth whitening treatment which I loved. Overall the place is clean, professional, great staff, and a super efficient office and I will definitely be going back!

Dr. Gerskowitz has been my dentist for over a decade. And now he’s even closer to home! My entire family goes to him including my children. He takes last minute appointments if you have any issues and the entire staff is incredible. I wouldn’t trust anyone else!

Boris M. from Fair Lawn, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gerskowitz is the best doctor I’ve had- highly professional, skilled and handy, very pleasant to patients, has a great personality. I can say the same about all his office staff – very nice, pleasant and friendly to all patients. Today I had a pleasure to get acquainted to another one great dental hygienist, Anastasia. She did  very good job, and was very gentle, attentive to smallest details, very nice personality.

Great experience as I was in pain. Got me right in evaluated that I needed a Root canal and build up of my tooth since it cracked. Went in it went nice and smooth. Office staff very friendly and helpful and Dr. Alexander was thru the procedure was checking up on me which made me feel great about the practice I choose. The pain was very minimal considering the work that was done.

Scott V. from Pequannock Township, NJ (Source: Google)


Great Dentist!  I got two cavities filled and he’s got this new fangled laser type machine and you feel absolute no pain!  No shots to knub ya, no drillin’, no nothing!  In and out in 20ish minutes…  Dr. Gerskowitz, thanks for a great experience in a usual not so great place…  I hope I don’t get another cavity, but if I do, I can’t wait for you to laser it out of my tooth!

Gina Gutierrez (Source: Google)


It has been one of the best dental visits I ever had. The doctor and staff are very Happy and nice. Very welcoming environment. Doctor is very helpful and takes his time explaining every step of the treatment. Love it!! Recommend to everyone who’s looking for a dentist near by your home.

So we were offered a free lunch at work as a part of a presentation that was being carried on during lunch.  The menu was a series of 6-foot subs.  I took one cutting and doused it with vinegar and oil to soften the top and then bit in to get started for the event.  A short way way thru the bite I heard a crack sound.  I dropped the sandwich and felt my tooth.  Lo and behold it was my front tooth and it was shaking back and forth like a leaf in a storm.  I left the room quietly with my hand over my mouth and headed straight for my computer to search for a dentist.  I couldn’t cry for “help” because of the damage, but i was able to cry “yelp”….and here i ended up choosing the best dentist i could have ever found for the damage that was done.  Avant Garde Dental Arts came to my recuse in ways i could have only dream.  The really do works of art. I sat back and listened to the two dentist inspect the damage and the best approach to a permanent fix.  The came to a consensus and I was so glad to hear that they were certain that I would go home with my missing tooth repaired that same day.  Wow was I happy. I know i am dragging this on but I have been to quite a few dental offices but never one like this.  It gives me goosebumps to tell this story because of the process and above all, the way it ended. When i showed my friends the before and after photos they couldn’t not believe all of that repair was done in one setting.  It was truly amazing.  It’s almost impossible to determine the tooth that was constructed in the office from my original tooth.  So the moral of the story is not all free lunches are free.. some can end up costing you quite a bundle.  I wish there was a way to show my before and after photos.  This will be my go-to dental office as long as i have uppers and lowers.  These dental artists not let you down, I assure you.  My daughter was so happy daddy got his smile back.

Excellent doctor and staff. Knowledgeable and compassionate. Myself and my family have been patients for over 2 years. There’s no one like Dr. Gerskowitz and staff, also his wife an optometrist has her office right next door and offers a large selection of eyewear for all your needs. If you’re looking for professionalism and excellence then Avant Garde Dental Arts is the solution for you.

Lindsay H. from Wayne, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough amazing thinks about Dr. Gerskowitz. I am petrified of the dentist. All of his staff knew my anxiety and they calmed me right away. Dr. Gerskowitz continued to check on me throughout the procedure to make sure I was ok. He took me through every step and make sure I was aware of what he was doing. He told me when he was done, that I’d be excited for me next visit! He sure was right! He turned my anxiety around. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. His staff was incredible and the facility was state of the art and SO clean! If you’re looking for an amazing dentist in the Wayne area, Avant Garde is the place to go!

Sarah F. from Fair Lawn, NJ (Source: Yelp)


This office is amazing! The whole staff is extremely warm and friendly, the office is beautiful and high tech… Highly recommend! From the people at the front desk, to the hygienist, to the dentists, they were all great! Usually I dread going to the dentist, but definitely will not dread the next time that I have to go back!

I highly recommend Avant Garde Dental Arts of River Edge !!The front desk girls are very welcoming and happy when they see patients walking in. They make you feel at ease since im terrified of the dentist. Theres never a wait. I can tell they schedule accordingly. The staff in the back are very attentive. They truely care about my concerns. Not only that, but doctors are very educational. They help me understand my symptoms and whats going on with my oral health. I found my new favorite dentist and will not give them up! Absolutely highly recommend to anyone and everyone!

The staff and doctor are knowledgeable and very friendly. I definitely recommend this practice to anyone looking for a clean, professional, and honest dental office!

Obsessed with this place! First, my father is a dentist back home in the Midwest so I can say my review stands with my constant critiquing. 😉 (1) had a loose crown Wednesday night. Called Thursday 8am got a call back 8:15am – remember they technically open at 10am so this was already a good start- and told me to come @ 9am. I got it fixed within the hour. Doc knew exactly what to do. It felt so much better. (2) while I was there I made an appt for a standard cleaning and they accommodated me to come in that same day latercafter lunch. Super nice Bc I had the day off. Cleaning went well and they found some buildup so told me I needed an intense deep clean that’s a full 2 hours and they’re pretty booked. I begged to get it done before I start my new job Monday so they said “ok I guess we can squeeze you in Friday at 1pm”. (3) i go in for the deep clean Friday at 1pm. Never felt more fresh. Super nice hygienist named Alejandra. Sweetest person and very attentive. (4) Doc said If I wanted I could have my white spots from braces that I had 15 years ago removed. He did that after my deep clean. Check the before and after. They even somehow managed to bill 80 percent of it to my insurance (receptionist is also 5 Star). It doesn’t get better. This place is amazing. Thoroughly impressed.

Alex G. from Little Falls, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Avant Garde Dental Arts and seeing Dr. Alexander and his staff for the past 5 years and I have to say they are marvelous. There has been a few occasions where i needed an emergency visit and they were able to accommodate me with no problem. Two things I appreciate the most are the fact that they are so genuinely nice and knowledgeable. Definitely will continue to do business with Dr. Alexander and his staff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gerskowitz for the past 2 years and from day one I have always received the best patient care! From his front desk assistants, Emily and Natalia, to his dental assistants and dental hygienist, I always know I’ll be taken care of. A couple of months back I complained about my jaw clicking and Dr. Gerskowitz created a frontal mouth guard for me. I was skeptical at first, but after just 2 nights of using it, it has helped me so much! My jaw muscles are relaxed at night since I’m not grinding, which has helped with the teeth pain I was experiencing due to grinding AND I have all this energy during the day because I’m actually sleeping throughout the night. I’m so grateful for this office! Seriously recommend them to anyone

From the moment I walked in, there was an air of professionalism. From the receptionist to the consult with the dentist to the actual teeth whitening procedure, everything went seemlessly. I’m extremely happy with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Avant Garde Dental Arts to family and friends.
