Welcome to White Oak Dental & Orthodontics

Your One-Stop Shop for Dentistry & Orthodontics

White Oak Dental & Orthodontics started with a simple idea. What if instead of using dentistry to just treat teeth, we took care of people instead?

In a world filled with countless corporate-owned dental offices, we wanted to give families in the Woodbridge Township community the option to be looked after by a local family.

We consider our dental office near Port Reading to be a slice of our home, and we can’t wait for you to see it and experience all of the benefits that fully personalized, state-of-the-art dentistry has to offer

Board Certified Orthodontist

Why Should You Choose a Board Certified Orthodontist?

Only 30% of orthodontists in the United States are Board Certified. In addition to the 3 years of specialized training required, Dr. Lai successfully completed a rigorous process consisting of written and clinical testing administered by a panel of examiners. This voluntary achievement shows Dr. Lai’s personal commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care possible. In short, whether you’re interested in traditional orthodontics or discreet alternatives, like Invisalign, she’s the nearby expert to trust!

The Importance of Choosing a Board Certified Orthodontist

“I am amazed at how friendly, professional and courteous the staff is. Dr Aquino is amazing. He makes you feel comfortable, and relaxed and does a fantastic job. I’ve been to many dentists before and only went for emergency situations as I’ve never been truly satisfied. Dr. Aquino is my new go-to dentist and recommend him highly to anyone who needs anything from a cleaning to implants and everything between. I’ve give 10 stars if I could!”

-Rich N.
