James Courey, DDS

Manalapan, NJ



Dr. James Courey loves dentistry and believes you can never learn enough about something you love. He is an expert in the restoration and replacement of teeth using implants, crowns, bridges, veneers and dentures. After dental school, Dr. Courey completed four years of prosthodontic training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center and an additional four years of advanced implant training at NYU. “Ongoing study of a variety of medical, dental and surgical disciplines gives me a wide range of diagnostic insight and diversified approaches to tooth replacement solutions,” he says. “There are many resources, tools, and technology available to dental professionals today, however, knowing how and when to utilize them is what distinguishes a good dentist from a great dentist. This is what sets us apart.” According to the American College of Prosthodontists, “Extensive training and experience provide prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and creation of tooth replacements.” Missing or imperfect teeth due to trauma, decay or diseases can be replaced with beautiful, long-lasting, functional teeth. “A great team is the key to providing our patients with the best restorations available,” says Dr. Courey, who practices with fellow prosthodontist, Dr. Joseph Zagami. “Our collaboration with the finest dental specialists and labs leads to innovation in solving the most complicated dental dilemmas.” Dr. Courey is a postgraduate instructor of implant and restorative dentistry at Columbia University College of Dentistry.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

This was very helpful. Thanks! I have saved up $4,900 for 1 implant. It is a great low-cost deal. So, maybe screw is less than $350. So, the on-line question.
