Sharon was born and raised in Kearny where she realized her passion at the age of 17. Kearny High School offered a dental assistant program at a time when Sharon had no idea what she wanted to do. She was instantly hooked. She went on to graduate Bergen Community College with an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S) Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2006. And she’s been working as a dental hygienist ever since, joining our team back in 2007.

She’s continued to grow as a hygienist both practically and theoretically, having taken continuing education courses in CPR, OSHA, Invisalign®, and Dental Billing.

She loves vacationing in the warm weather, especially on cruises. When she’s not enjoying time away, she loves shopping, Crossfit, and spending time with friends and family.

Fun fact about Sharon? She has a twin sister. Her name is…

Karen

Karen Dental Hygienist

Yes, that’s right. We’re lucky enough to have both Sharon and Karen working with us. Karen, like her sister, found her passion in the dental assistant program at Kearny High School and feels lucky she can share that passion with her sister each and every week.

She loves cooking and exercising with her boyfriend in her free time. And just getting to enjoy her family and friends.

I had broke my front tooth haneously years ago and Dr Krieger fixed it to perfection back then. This past weekend I bit down on Saturday re-fracturing off a piece of the prosthetic tooth. I was devestated. There was no pain bc the nerve was gone from prior root canal so that was good at least. I work 12 hour shifts and was on all weekend. I left a message at the office Saturday night explaining what had happened and stating "I'd appreciate if they could squeeze me in just for consultation Monday as it was my only day off." I got a text response from one of the office staff on SUNDAY asking if I could come in Monday at 11am!!! PERFECT. It wasn't only a consult. In less than an hour, Dr. Krieger and Lauren assisted in replacing the broken tooth for a shiny new one at a HUGE discount and i even opted to get some whitening done in the mean time while the mold of new tooth (which was kept on record) was formed with their state of the art technology! I couldn't have been happier with the service or outcome of my beautiful smile. I always get compliments on my smile and teeth and no one believes the front one is fake!!! This Office is accommodating and asthetically the best. Thank you so much Doc, Lauren and the rest of the team!read more

What a great experience! The office was clean and organized and everyone was extremely friendly. I had a broken tooth and was taken care of by Dr. Hur. She was very caring and she and Lenia worked together like a well oiled machine. One of the best parts (besides the dental chair that had heat and massage built in!) is that I went in with a broken tooth and left with a finished crown! It's unbelievable to have had it completed in one visit. At other practices I've been to, it would have been at least 2 visits. Super awesome technology!read more

I have been to some pretty horrible dentists in my life. Dr. Hur has been helping me to get back on track with a lot of the dental work I need. She is as gentle as can be and makes you feel relaxed and at ease even if she is performing a root canal. The other staff members also make you feel right at home and really value your time. I would recommend this practice to anyone, but especially for people who have special dentistry needs as the technology and great attitude offered by this group makes your experience much more pleasant. read more

I have just completed my cosmetic case at the Franklin Lakes location. The staff there go above and beyond to make sure that you are set for your appointments, comfortable while waiting and check if you need anything while you there. I was traveling abroad for work and they made sure to i was set and comfortable with my case before i hopped on the plane for a week! I was so grateful for them since I was nervous about starting the case early but with Dr. Krieger and his staff everything was smooth sailing. Thanks to Dr. Krieger and his wonderful team!!read more
