Children | Dental Fear | Oral Health



Your summer was crazy! Between cross-country trips to see family, camps for the kids and impromptu cookouts, it seemed to just dash by. As back to school time closes in, you’re focused on getting your kids ready for classes. They’ve had a physical from their pediatrician, but did you remember to take them in to see the dentist?

Dental Fear | Halitosis (Bad Breath) | Oral Health



When you wake up in the morning, does the dog run for cover the moment you open your mouth? Everybody has morning breath, but some people have it so bad that they’re afraid to admit there’s a problem. If that sounds like you, don’t let halitosis get you down — we’re here to help.

Dental Fear | Oral Health | Teeth



You know it’s important to brush and floss regularly and get plenty of fluoride in order to maintain your beautiful smile, but has anyone told you what happens if you don’t?

Braces & Invisalign | Brushing



As you know, we offer Invisalign, which shares some characteristics with retainers, and is often followed by retainer use at the end of the therapy. You wouldn’t believe some of the funk I’ve seen on these and other types of retainers. Kids and their ability to create biological hazards never fails to surprise me. It should, but it doesn’t…

Oral Surgery | Wisdom Teeth



If you haven’t had your wisdom teeth removed — or even if you have and you’re getting ready to help a family member through the process — there’s plenty to know about the available procedures. Not everyone needs oral surgery, plenty of troubling wisdom teeth can be removed right in the office. Whether you’re having them out in the office, though, or at a general oral surgeon, one thing’s for sure. You should be prepared.

Oral Health | Teeth



Every so often a patient comes into my office and asks a question so fundamental that the rest of us haven’t even given it any thought in quite some time. The question? They want to know, in roundabout terms, what teeth are made of. Are they bone? Are they something else? It’s a perfectly natural thing to wonder about, after all, they don’t behave like many other tissues in our systems.

Brushing | Halitosis (Bad Breath)



You may not want to admit you’re one of them, but the truth is that most people experience bad breath from time to time. There are a myriad of reasons that it happens, some that are pretty benign (like that garlic bread you had for lunch), others are kind of serious. The bad news is that if you’re noticing it, chances are good that other people are, too. Luckily, your friendly neighborhood dentist can help diagnose the cause of your halitosis before it starts to impact your social life.

Children | Oral Health



Losing a first tooth is a big deal for anybody, but when you know the Tooth Fairy is coming to collect it, that can really make things interesting. Of course, you and I know that the Tooth Fairy isn’t quite what she seems, but as long as it helps your kids shake their fear of shedding those baby teeth, it seems a pretty harmless story.

Because of the prevalence of Tooth Fairy traditions in our culture, I got to wondering about her — what’s her background, where did she even come from? Turns out that some of the traditions related to the Tooth Fairy are at least as old as the Vikings.

Oral Health



You probably know what most of your major groupings of teeth are called. You know your tongue is in the bottom of your mouth and your lips cover the whole shebang. But how much time do you spend pondering the roof of your mouth?

Even though we dentists seem to laser focus on your teeth and jaws, we also know a fair amount about the roof of your mouth. As it turns out, it’s not just a good way to keep you from touching your tongue to your brain. There are some really neat things going on up there.

General Dentistry | Oral Health | Wellness



There’s nothing quite like a beautifully rich cheesecake or a thick, medium rare steak, but you’ve reached a point where the heartburn and acid reflux just aren’t worth the amazing flavors of your favorite dish. Your dentist expressed concerned about your tooth enamel at your last visit, is it possible that these two things are connected?

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 cleaning.read 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
