Meet Dr. Evan Ridge

Dr. Evan Ridge originally aspired to use his love for design and art to pursue a career in architecture before finding his passion in dentistry. He graduated from the University of Delaware with honors, receiving degrees in Biology and Exercise Physiology. He pursued his DMD at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, where he was inducted into the Prosthodontics Honors Society and received the Award of Merit from the Academy of Esthetic Dentistry for his excellence in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. After dental school, he completed a highly sought-after general practice residency at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in New York City, where he received advanced training in all areas of dentistry.

Through his warm and engaging demeanor, Dr. Ridge strives to make all of his patients feel comfortable and relaxed. Many patients have told him that, at the end of their visit, they forget they were even in a dentist’s chair!

Dr. Ridge is actively engaged in the dental community through involvement in the New Jersey Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. He is very passionate about continuing his education. He is very active in Spear Education and attends seminars and monthly study clubs. He also loves building ties to his local community, in part by making educational trips to local elementary schools to teach about dental hygiene.
