About Dr. Melinda Wagner
“When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.” –John Ruskin, English critic and social theorist.
Dr. Melinda Wagner and her enthusiastic staff strive to provide a level of dental care that would make Ruskin proud. Her practice combines the best of both worlds, the latest in technology and state of the art dental care with friendly, old-fashioned personal service that all too often seems to be a relic in modern health care. The foundation of good dentistry is good patient communication, especially today where sophisticated patients play a major role in their own oral health. Because good oral health is a partnership between the patient and the dentist, Dr. Wagner takes the time to listen and presents her findings and patient's options in easy-to-understand terms.
Care options can range from simple oral health maintenance to coordinating reconstructive surgery with other health care professionals with whom she has had long-standing relationships. In addition to general dentistry, Dr. Wagner offers her customers a wide array of the latest cosmetic procedures since attractive teeth can be as important as healthy teeth to many patients.
Dr Wagner was the first female president of the Monmouth-Ocean County Dental Society. She was recently honored for 25 years of dedicated service on the teaching staff at the Monmouth Medical Center. Her years of experience as both a teacher and a practitioner has given her a skill set of unique depth and breadth. Dr. Wagner’s personal goal is to provide dental care with big-city expertise and state-of-the-art technology while retaining a warm and caring small-town attitude. We welcome new patients, especially those fearful ones who are a few months (or a few years) overdue visiting a dentist.
