Our mission is to provide friendly, professional and complete general dental services that encourage our patients to take an active role in caring for their teeth and gums. We believe that your teeth are the picture and your lips are the frame for the picture. In our warm environment, you will find that our dental staff is extremely approachable and helpful throughout your entire visit. With the ultra-experienced staff at Rutherford Dentistry, nearly all client needs can be handled in-house, without need for outside referral.

Dr. Graber graduated from Fairleigh Dickenson Dental School in 1980.  Immediately after graduation, he practiced general dentistry in Manhattan and Brooklyn.  In 1982 he purchased his own practice in Jersey City.  He was a Colgate Panel Dentist from 1982 to 1986.

In 1987 he purchased an established neighborhood dental practice in Rutherford, New Jersey; the practice had already flourished in beautiful Rutherford for over 30 years.  At that time, he invited a periodontist, Dr. Richard Boguslaw, to join the practice. Dr. Boguslaw, a certified periodontist, was one of Dr. Graber’s esteemed professors at Fairleigh Dickinson.

Dr. Steven Reff has recently joined the practice, thus allowing Dr. Graber to offer patients the in-house services of a specialist in dental implants and other surgical procedures.  Dr. Reff received his DDS degree (Doctor of Dental Surgery) from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.  While there, he graduated in the top of his class and was inducted into the Gamma Pi Delta Prosthetic Honors Society.  Following dental school, Dr. Reff completed his general cosmetic and surgical training at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine/New York Presbyterian Hospital

Practicing as a New Jersey dentist for the last 34 years, Dr. Graber has had additional training in bonded fillings and operative endodontic, periodontal and cosmetic dentistry.  He also trained in Brassler endodontics.  Dr. Graber is a member of the American Academy of Facial Cosmetics:  He is presently offering free consultations for Botox and dermal fillers.

General dentistry presented in a relaxed and painless atmosphere is Dr. Graber’s mission and goal.  He considers his patients to be part of his extended family.
