My mother was in town visiting and unfortunately had an excruciatingly painful toothache. I contacted Dr. Buffong’s office to see if he might be able to see her quickly. Not only did he and his staff accommodate her, he performed a same day procedure on the spot! He was detailed in his explanation and made sure she was fully comfortable with his diagnosis and suggestion. We highly recommend his services! Great office staff as well!

I’ve been coming to this dentist for about a year. This last time in the mist of the COVID-19 pandemic. They returned my call swiftly and gave me an appointment right away. I probably spent about a half hour in there for my service. The doctor and staff are professional and very informative. I’m glad I made the switch to them. Highly recommended.

Dr. Buffong is the coolest dentist/doctor in Bergen County NJ! He listens to the patient and takes care of him/her with great attention! Dispite his busy schedule, he took me in immediately without an appointment to help me with my wisdom teeth and his staff were extremely professional! Great experience! Would definitely recommend!

Dr. Richard Buffong is the best dentist I have ever met. In one consultation, he distilled my several problems into a less than 5 minute explanation. His assistant even broke down the procedures I need sequentially and by individual cost. I was very happy with the treatment I received today, and I’m excited to begin my dental repair journey with Dr. Buffong.

Dr. Buffong was amazing!! Firstly, I do not like visiting the dentist. Secondly, I am Covid-19 paranoid, when I go out ,I am wrapped up like a mummy. But just my luck , a crippling toothache had to happen during these crazy inopportune times. Dr. Buffong and his staff made me feel so comfortable and took all the extra safety measures. I felt so much at ease, I didn’t even realize my root canal was done. Thank you Dr. Buffong and staff for squeezing me in at the last minute , easing my fears and making me feel safe and comfortable.

This place is awesome. The dentist was very professional and the assistant was a great help. Nancy the office manager really made a stressful visit to the dentist a lot less stressful. She walked me through the procedures I needed to get done and was very helpful in answering all my questions. I would totally recommend this place to all my friends and family. Very pleased with my visit. Thanks

I recently had very very severe dental issues. As a very apprehensive and cautious individual I choose Dr.Buffong. I have only positive remarks for Dr.Buffong and his staff. His office looks and smells clean and everyone is wearing a mask at all times. Dr.Dr. Buffong and his Team of experts made me have faith in Dentistry after all the work they put into my mouth. I am more than satisfied and I have received numerous compliments. My advice is go to a dentist who listens to your concerns and is willing to work with you financially I recommend Dr.Buffong as #1

My kids has been RJ dental’s patients for a long time now ( oldest son is almost 16 now, he’s been coming to this practice since he was 6 yrs old or younger ). Both kids don’t give me a hard time when I tell them it’s time for their dental appointment and that is because they had a very pleasant experience! And now, me and my husband are RJ Dental’s patients too! Dr. Buffong is awesome! He makes patients so comfortable and dental procedures easy!

Dr. Buffong is the best of the best. I went in with an extreme case of dental phobia, and he helped ease my worries. He takes his time to explain your procedure, and then proceeds with the utmost caution and care, with the best bedside manner. This goes for everyone at his office including his dental hygienist, receptionist and assistant! This is most definitely the office to go to for dental work without a doubt. Thank you guys for your great work!!!

Very pleasant experience. Friendly competent staff. Dentist explains everything clearly. He has excellent hands, after removing 3 teeth my 80 year old father felt no pains. Other consistencies are the appointment reminder texts and email and there’s parking available. Prices were also affordable and this office works with you financially. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Best dental office ever!!! Dr. Buffong never fails to make me feel so welcome at his office! Great atmosphere, great employees, I love going in there. I’ve gotten my teeth whitened as well as now I’m doing my Invisalign, he talked to me how the process would be and explained to me what and how to handle it.

The office was very clean and inviting. My wait was less than ten minutes, during which I observed all of the staff using safety protocols. This was extremely important to me due to my compromised immune system. The dentist and technician were very friendly, informative, and thorough. I didn’t feel like I was rushed out of the chair like in other dentist offices. They even took the time to assist me in searching for an electric toothbrush that would help my oroal hygiene. To top it off, I was offered complimentary coffee, water and candy as I exited. All said….this place is great!

My family and I are all patients of Dr. Buffong at RJ dental. The experience from booking an appointment to leaving the office with pearly whites is always pleasurable! If you have not gone to see Dr. Buffong, do yourself a favor and call. They’re very accommodating, the office space is comfortable and Dr. Buffong has great hands. Trust me if you have sensitive teeth like me, he’s patient & makes coming to the dentist less of a chore

As a person with extreme anxiety (to the point that I need laughing gas for a cleaning), this AMAZING dentist made sure that I was comfortable before we even started with anything. Maybe 30 seconds after I walked in I was called inside. He explained everything to me step by step and reassured me that he going to take great care of my teeth. His assistant was also great and made sure that I was super comfortable at all times. Best bedside manner ever. The receptionist is a sweetheart and super helpful with insurance. 10/10 dentist!!!

I was referred to Dr. Buffong from a friend and though this is my 2nd visit I’m pleased with the service. With covid 19 we are skeptical about safety protocols. Yet, I can honestly say that I have found a new dental home that I will be sending and referring family and friends. I’ve gotten a cleaning and started the process of getting my crown and can’t wait to go back to get more work done. Not many people look foreword to going to the dentist. Dr. Buffong and his staff make sure you are comfortable and the process is as smooth for any procedure.

I was referred to this office by my uncle and had a great experience. The staff were very professional, welcoming, informative, and helpful. I went to get my teeth cleaned and I was more than happy with the results and how it was done in a timely fashion. They also work with you if you don’t have insurance.

Excellent dental office. From the front desk, to the dental staff, all great. Took my daughter in, which due to a bad prior dentist experience(she actually fainted) when she was younger now fears them. She came out happy and said she loved the experience at RJ Dental. Had her teeth cleaned and a cavity filled. Had gone to another dentist somewhere else in Union county, which my insurance had recommended, and just the front desk service was horrible. Stood there for 10 minutes before being acknowledged. So I am really glad I looked for another place and found RJ dental of Roselle. Highly recommend RJ dental of Roselle, especially if you have children.

First off, I want to say I do not enjoy going to the dentist, however Dr. Buffong has made me change my mind. The first time I went to see him, i was experiencing excrutiating pain in my tooth. I went in, apprehensive and nervous (to say the least). Within minutes, Dr. Buffong and his staff eased my anxiety and assured me they would care for me (and my tooth). Then I heard the dreaded words — I needed a root canal. The anxiety flooded back immediately. Throughout the procedure, Dr. Buffong answered all of my questions and him and his staff were kind and understanding throughout my panic. He dealt with a crazy patient like myself with patience and ease, while other other dentists may have rushed or shushed me, he took his time to make sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. I can finally say I am no longer afraid of the dentist!

It’s been a while since I visited a dentist so I was a little nervous going in but everyone here is so sweet and professional! I felt welcome from the moment I walked in and received the highest quality of service. The dental hygienist Toni gave me the best cleaning ever and Dr. Buffong was able to help me resolve an issue I was having with pain in my jaw. He explained to me in detail the cause and the body mechanics involved. Everyone in the office was knowledgeable and able to easily answer any questions. It gives me great confidence to know I am being treated by such a well- informed practitioners. Both my parents go here and now I can see why. I highly recommend trying out RJ if you need any dental work done.

I Love this Dental Practice! Dr. Buffong is so good at creating the Total Dental Experience! I don’t feel stressed walking in-even when I had to get major work done. He put me totally at ease immediately. He made sure I was educated on everything being done and promised that he would make sure the discomfort was minimal-and it was. I went some place else years ago for an extraction and the dentist made me feel horrible; like I was acting like an immature baby when I was really afraid and in pain. I must have cried for hours and felt humiliated when I left. With Dr. Buffong; I actually enjoy going to get my teeth cleaned and everything now; I’m never going anywhere else-as long as I can help it!! He was the best referral ever!
