Specialized Dentistry of New Jersey (SDNJ) and Family Dentistry of New Jersey (FDNJ) were founded by Dr. James Courey in 2007 and 2019, respectively. As the provider of specialized, cosmetic, and general dentistry for over 30 years, he is highly respected among his peers and in the community for producing some of dentistry’s best restorative outcomes in the most complex situations.  Working with a team of specialists and general dentists, whether in our office or in the community provides patients access to dentistry’s best results – beautiful, functional, long-lasting restorations.

Dr. James Courey is a prosthodontist, which is a dental specialty in the area of restoration & replacement of the teeth & smile using dental implant technology, cosmetic dentistry with veneers, crowns & bridges, treatment of TMJ disorders, sleep apnea, and more.  According to the American College of Prosthodontists, “Extensive training and experience provide prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and creation of tooth replacements.” Missing or imperfect teeth due to trauma, decay or diseases can be replaced with beautiful, long-lasting, functional teeth.

I am proud of our surgical & restorative track record.  Our patients get their money’s worth; their investment with us returns successful, long lasting dentistry.”

“Ongoing study of medical, dental and surgical disciplines provides us wide range of diagnostic insight and diversified approaches to tooth replacement solutions," says Dr. Courey.  “There are many resources, tools, and technology available today, however, knowing how and when to utilize them is what distinguishes a good dentist from a great dentist.  This is what sets us apart.”
