To our loyal patients,

We would like to introduce ourselves as your new dentists - Dr. Krupa Patel Padhiar and Dr. Dheeren Padhiar. We are very excited to embark on this transition here at Friendly Smiles, formally Dr. Sharon Verdinelli’s practice. While there are big shoes to fill, and it is a bittersweet time, we hope you find comfort in that we share the same philosophies as Dr. Sharon and promise to continue treating every patient with utmost compassion and care just as Dr. Sharon had for close to 30 years.

In these unprecedented times, we are prioritizing the highest standard of safety and cleanliness in the office. We have various systems and protocols in place to ensure every patient is treated in the safest and most sterile environment, while also maintaining social distancing and following guidelines placed by the Center of Disease Control.

We are looking forward to building a family in a warm and welcoming environment here at Friendly Smiles! We are excited to offer all aspects of general dentistry, ranging from routine visits and cleanings to emergent treatment and restorative needs. We welcome all patients, including new patients and those with dental emergencies.

What Our Clients Say About Us

    Yesterday I met the new staff and Dr. Krupa, they are so very friendly, helpful and professional. Lori and Erin are still the two dental hygienists which makes the transition very smooth. Dr. Verdinelli couldn't have left the practice in better hands. I wish everyone the best of luck.

    L. Bright

    My appointment yesterday was impressive. The office waiting room has been redesigned and looked great, and I was told a new phone system is on its ways as well. Many new safety guidelines were in place due to COVID-19. The caution and care were impressive. The employees at the desk were friendly and helpful. It was great to see that Lori and Erin are still there because they are great at what they do. They seemed so happy to see patients again. Dr. Krupa welcomed me and was very friendly. I was a long-time patient of Dr. Verdinelli, and I could tell that Dr. Krupa was excited to be there and that she will keep the same high level of care. My family and I are so glad to keep the same location and the same great staff.

    The staff were friendly and professional. They had a personal interest in how you felt. They explained in detail what was going to be done.

    Kevin Poster

    I have seen many dentists over the years, and cant tell you how happy I am that I finally stumbled upon Friendly Smiles. The office is modern with TVs in every room, homey vibe with good background music, bright and vibrant, clean. The entire staff is super welcoming like they’ve known you for years. The owners are a wonderful, smart young couple- Dr. Dheeren and Dr. Krupa. They were so friendly and made me feel extremely comfortable during my visit. And the work is fantastic. I’ve been fighting a tooth ache for almost a year, and had 2 other dentists try to fix it with multiple fillings. Dr. Dheeren diagnosed me with a cracked tooth and fixed it in about half an hour, and I’ve been pain free since! Will be back, and recommend to anyone who really cares about their teeth!

    Alex Uhr

    Wonderful experience. Staff is super friendly and was in and out without delay!!!

    Mary Coviello

    Dr. Verdinelli is very approachable and caring. She ensures your teeth are taken care of and suggests best practices. My teeth have never been healthier since I started going. I moved away from S. Jersey but will take time off to have my teeth cared for by Sharon. Her staff and professionalism will remind you of how healthcare was and should be.

    Updated 2/23 - simply put - best dentist ever.

    Jim Bilda

    We have been going to Dr. Sharon Verdinelli for over 11 years. I have referred many patients to her and they too all enjoy her office as much as we do. Dr. Verdinelli and her entire staff are very caring and compassionate people. You feel like part of the family when you are there. Her expertise is astounding, she uses top of the line equipment and modern technology. The hygienists really do take their time and are very thorough, be prepared to spend an hour in the chair for a cleaning.

    Cait DeStefano

    I have been going to Dr. Sharon for over 15 years. The office is pristine, and the staff put you at ease. Highly recommend, she and the entire staff are kind, professional, and genuinely caring.

    Jezreel konstantinos

    My family and I have been going to Dr. Sharon's office for over 15 years, from the time I was a child. Dr. Sharon and her staff are gentle and kind. They truly care about their patients. Their office has always been immaculate, and they have always made me feel calm and at ease. I would recommend Dr. Sharon to anyone with confidence!

    Julia Konstantinos

    Great dentist and staff

    Rick Byrne

    I have been going to Dr. Verdinelli for years now. I'm no stranger to her office and the other specialists she refers to. I am facing a problem where the solution could go a few ways. Dr. Verdinelli reviewed Dr. Kubikian's recommendations and then called me a few days later to talk to me about another solution she thought of. It's perfect, and much less expensive and time consuming than what we all were thinking. I love that she is still thinking about me even when I'm not in her chair. Her staff is fabulous, I actually don't mind going.

    Gwen Mazzeo

    Dr. Verdinelli is a highly qualified dentist that has taught student dentists and provides a warm and anxiety free atmosphere in her office.

    Bill Gimpel

    The best experience I have ever had at the dentist !!! Thank you Dr. Sharon Verdinelli and to everyone here at this beautiful office . I feel grateful to have found such a caring , talented and truthful dentist who takes pride in her work and I won’t ever feel Anxious to go to the dentist again . Thank you to Erin the hygienist and Sue the doctors assistant and to Joyce for fitting me in on such short notice !!! I really can’t believe there’s a practice that is dedicated to one patient at a time and not rushing back and forth to five people at once trying to squeeze as many patients in as they can but instead schedule each appointment with enough time to make each patient comfortable and relaxed and cared for . Thank you for taking such good care and making my entire appointment pain free and extremely easy!!! Your the BEST !!

    Sally Hazel

    Victoria Steinmetz

    Dr. Verdinelli is the best. You get inidividualized care and she takes the time to prioritize care based on your budget and your needs. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist that always puts her patients first.

    I’ve tried other dentists in the area after moving here over 6 years ago and have found Dr. Verdinelli’s office to be the best by far! Everyone has been kind, gentle & professional.

    Christine Mulder

    The staff was very conscientious with maintaining best practices in virus protection.

    Karl Dickel

    Dr. Verdinelli, DMD and her staff complied with all of the CDC requirements. They had to order special materials, and set up the office setting in a way to enforce proper control over the virus.

    There was a check in station for temperature check, hand sanitizer, initial and signature to uphold honesty of not having the virus and implementing documentation/ requiring follow-up communication if you happened to get the virus after the visit. This system protects future clients and their staff.

    Even though they have been out for quite some time, they upheld all standards during this time. It was apparent of their care and concern for each person coming into their office setting.

    Mary Fogarty

    Excellent Care!

    Amber Rishel

    I have been a patient of Dr. Verdinelli since I was a child and am very pleased with the transition to Dr. Krupa. I have had two visits with Dr. Krupa and her team (some new, some old) and have been pleased both times. I pay out of pocket, so you know that it is worthwhile service. I have never had any pain (most recently had a filling) or any other negative experiences and have always been treated with well in their spotless office.

    Ivy Koberlein

    Had an appt with the new dentist today. She was lovely. I was apprehensive - have been going to Sharon for 25 years. But I am very pleased. Will continue seeing the new dentists. Erin, the hygienist who is so wonderful still works there. Should be a smooth transition

    Patricia Ragone

    I’m a new patient here and had a great experience coming in! Dr. Dheeran was very friendly. I learned many new things about my oral care here compared to my previous practice. The facility itself is super bright and clean with its recent renovation

Highly recommend!!!
