Dr. Eun Hur uses her extensive experience to provide the highest level of dental care in a gentle, compassionate manner. She received her D.M.D. (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dentistry. While there, she graduated with high recommendations from the faculty members. She also participated actively in community service activities including Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, Mission of Mercy, and Give Kids a Smile.

Born and raised in Wayne, NJ, she’s now raising her own family there. She’s married and has a daughter who is the light of her life.

She graduated from UMDNJ in 2003 and has worked in the dental field since 1999. She’s been with us for 9 years. Not only is she an amazing hygienist, she’s also our Patient Care Coordinator, making sure you’re getting the best, most compassionate care possible.

She’s made sure to stay on top of the latest trends in the dental industry, taking continuing education courses in CAD/CAM Dentistry in a program called E4d Elements of Success.

Sharon Dental Hygienist

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 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 also graduated Bergen County Community College with an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree in Dental Hygiene. She’s been with us for 4 years and has also taken continuing education courses in CPR, OSHA, Invisalign®, and Dental Billing.

She loves being outdoors in the spring and summer months: hiking, camping, going to the beach (preferably in the Caribbean). In the winter, it’s all about hibernation. She loves spending time with her husband and daughter.

She’s a certified dental assistant (CDA), registered dental assistant (RDA), and a registered dental hygienist (RDH) with 10 years experience working in a dental office (the last 5 as a hygienist and the last 1 year with us).

But that wasn’t enough for her. She’s continued her education, completing courses in Invisalign®, infection control, periodontal disease, OSHA, and bloodborne pathogens. She’s passionate about her work and about learning as much as possible to give you the best care.

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

I needed a crown to replace a broken silver filling. I went to Dr Krieger's office for this service and I have never been to a better dental office. First thing I would like to say is that they are honest. Before I came to Dr Krieger, I went to another dental office who told me I needed 2 crowns, one for the broken filling and one for the silver filling on the other tooth right next to it. When Dr Krieger took my xray he said I absolutely needed a crown on the broken filling but just a new filling on the tooth next to it. The other place tried to rip me off big time but this place did not at all and that I am very pleased with. Dr Krieger is a pleasant guy to deal with and does excellent work. Secondly, this place has all the modern, top of the line equipment, they made my crown right then and there, it was so convenient! And last but def not least, his office staff is amazing! The girls there are so welcoming and nice, plus you can tell they know their stuff and they are very knowledgeable and great at what they do! I personally dealt with Sharon, Cathy, and Jen- awesome girls .. thank you all so much for taking such excellent care of me :) happy to be a patient here!read more

Wonderful experience. The staff is welcoming professional and friendly. Dr Krierger was descriptive and efficient during the procedures with little pain compared to other dental visits. Great dentist and they are not trying to overcharge you for anything other than you need. I get honesty and integrity from this office!read more

I have been going to Dr. Krieger's practice since 2008, when I first saw him for a root canal treatment. Not only was the treatment pain-free, but he was also able to do it through a crown, saving me the expense of replacing it! Since then, I have been going there for all my routine cleanings, as well as any procedures that have been necessary. All of the hygienists and assistants are great! Very professional and personable too. After 10 years, I finally needed a root canal treatment on another tooth. This time it was performed by Dr. Hur. As with Dr. Krieger, I felt like I was in the hands (literally) of not just a top-notch dentist, but an artist as well. I did need to have the crown replaced this time, but the new one was formed and fitted on the spot using their CAD and 3-D printing technology. It fits perfectly! I can't say enough good things about Dr. Krieger, Dr. Hur and all their wonderful staff!read more

John Wooden once told me: You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you. That's the way I felt about my root canal (multiple) work yesterday featuring the talents of Dr K!

The staff at MKDMD is the best of the best. I cracked my tooth the day after Christmas and they were able to squeeze me in as an emergency to make me comfortable temporarily as I was leaving for a trip. This morning they completed the treatment in spite of the snow storm. My tooth is all put back together and I look forward to going back for a more

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
