After graduating from Rutgers University, Dr. Heering earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He completed his advanced specialty education in Periodontics at Boston University. He is a member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Periodontics, New Jersey Society of Periodontists and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. Keeping pace with the latest advancements in periodontics is a high priority for Dr. Heering. This is reflected in the more than 50 hours of professional courses in periodontal care and implant technology which he pursues yearly.
On the subject of making his patients feel at ease, Dr. Heering asserts, "It goes without saying that very few people like going to the dentist. Getting dental care that may involve surgery takes even more fortitude. That’s why I do what it takes for my patients to make sure that they’re as comfortable as possible every time I see them."
